A symbol of re-birth
As the seasons move into autumn and winter, many trees will enter a hibernation phase and lose their leaves. Come springtime however, trees will slowly re-emerge, sprouting tiny buds at first before blossoming to life. Much like the life cycle of trees, our lives can experience seasons of darkness and light, death and re-birth. The Tree of Life symbol therefore represents re-birth, positive energy and new beginnings.
A Connection to Everything: The Tree of Life commonly represents the interconnectedness of everything in the universe. It symbolizes togetherness and serves as a reminder that you are never alone or isolated, but rather that you are connected to the world. The roots of the Tree of Life dig deep and spread into the earth, thereby accepting nourishment from Mother Earth, and its branches reach up into the sky, accepting energy from the sun and moon.
Ancestry, Family, and Fertility: The Tree of Life symbol also represents the connection to one’s family and ancestors. The Tree of Life has an intricate network of branches that represents how a family grows and expands throughout many generations. It also symbolizes fertility as it always finds a way to keep growing, through seeds or new saplings, and is lush and green, which signifies its vitality.
