Tree of Life: Symbol of Creation


Throughout history, trees have come to symbolize our sense of connection and feelings of belonging to this world. Strong branches radiating out towards the sky and determined roots reaching deep into the soil, trees are bridges connecting our physical realm to the spiritual. Daily, trees care for our lives, providing shelter, protecting humans and animals from fearsome elements, and offering both beauty and sustenance. It is no wonder that many cultures have shared the tree as a metaphor for the female principle of regeneration and nourishment, where yearly we witness its grand opera of birth and decay. Along with this cyclical story, trees carry ancient wisdom concerning our bonds to this environment. Living beyond the mere lifespan of creatures, trees tell stories of wealth, tragedy, and fortitude. They are the keepers of the earth’s myth of creation, binding all families into one unifying and nurturing voice.

Wear a Tree of Life charm and evoke the earth’s healing powers of creation, nourishment, and protection.
