What does the Tree of Life represent?
A symbol of connection to all things. The tree has roots that reach deeply into the soil, acknowledging its connection to, and accepting nourishment from, Mother Earth. Leaves and branches extend into the sky, acknowledging Father Sun and accepting the energy that it transforms into nourishment.
The tree of life means that you are not an island, but are deeply connected to the world around you and dependent on it for your ability to grow and thrive.
A symbol of family and connection to your ancestors. A tree symbolizes the generations of your family; a tree sprouts from a seed, grows and branches out, sees how far it can go, and then creates a new fruit that gives life to the next generation, to begin anew.
The tree of life also symbolizes family through its intricate network of branches, showing our the continuity through all generations. We are connected through ever-expanding branches to our parents and grandparents and to our children and our children’s children.
