What is the meaning of the Tree of Life?
The tree of life symbol has become very popular in jewellery and it’s popularity doesn’t seem to decline. Wearing the tree of life symbol for some people is not simply a fashion statement but has grown to represent different things to different people.
For centuries, the tree of life has been highly symbolic to many cultures around the world. There is something about the tree of life that is inspiring, grounding and calming. It is a universal symbol that transcends religions and cultures and no one group claims this symbol for themselves.
The tree of life has many spiritual and religious meanings and can be interpreted in many ways. The beauty of this is that you can find in the symbol a meaning that you can relate to. Here are some of the universal representations of the tree of life:
The tree of life represents how everything is interconnected. We don’t exist in a vacuum but are connected with the world around us.
- Stability, Strength and Growth
A tree is a symbol of stability and strength. We use the metaphor of a tree and it’s roots to talk about strength, stability and being grounded. It also symbolises growth as a tree is the result of years of slow, patient growth from a vulnerable sapling to a sturdy tree.
Every tree is unique and has its own characteristics, if you look for them. At the start, all trees look alike but as they grow, each tree becomes unique, with no two trees being exactly alike. As time passes, trees gain character and beauty, weathering all sorts of trials and challenges to remain strong and upright. Like the tree, we too are different and the tree of life reminds us of that.
A tree may lose its leaves and appear to be dead, but when the conditions are right, the tree comes back to life, with beautiful leaves appearing again. As such, the tree of life symbolises rebirth and getting through the hard times. It represents a fresh start, a new leaf turning over.
- Fertility and Family
The word tree is often used to talk about the connection to family and to ancestors. We say family tree to symbolise the many family links to various people through the generations. A tree is symbolic of fertility in that it finds a way to perpetuate, whether by seed or sapling. It is green and lush, all signs of fertility and vitality.
- Calm, Peace and Relaxation
There is something about being under a large tree that invokes a sense of calm, peace and relaxation. This is a feeling that we rarely receive from any other thing.
