Tree Of Life

Blog Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

When I think of a tree I think of something long-lasting,sturdy and ever-changing. The tree of life symbols are air, water, fire and earth and combine to create the life-giving power of the tree of life. The tree of life is said to have powers of healing, rejuvenation and sustenance.

What Tree of Life items do you have in your shop?

Rita from RitzySelection says the Tree of Life means foremost power. The first man-made objects made by nature’s treasures. Such is animal skin and wool. A Secret: The craftsmen, the ancient tribal culture, will continue to move into today’s urbanized, mechanized world. It is a tremendous treasure that we create day by day for the happiness of others! My advice is as follows: Let us plant a Tree of Life every day as much as possible!

Sandra from SDDigitalDesign said family – the roots of the tree of life. The tree symbolizes generations of families which begins simply as a seed. The seed sprouts, grows and branches out all the while giving life to many generations to come. It is a visual metaphor representing your life and the various elements that make it up–past, present, and future.

Mairi from mairidesign states a vibrant botanical illustration of a silhouette tree with colourful flowers and birds. The tree of life represents how we are connected to the world around us, as well as providing food, shelter and warmth for people, it is also a home for many animals and insects. With that, this pendant would make an ideal birthday gift, to mark the coming of age for teens and women who appreciate nature.

Deborah from BaubleandaButterfly says the Tree of Life symbolism has a long history, crossing many cultures as universal symbol found in many spiritual traditions. The tree has always been a symbol of life, renewal and energy. It stands for many things, including wisdom, protection, strength, bounty, beauty, and redemption, symbolic of the Creator as it sustains creation with its abundant fruit, protection and regeneration. Turquoise is considered a stone of friendship. It absorbs negativity, promotes honest & clear communication from the heart & is an excellent grounding stone. Good for healing the spirit & soul and it is known as a master healer stone.

Marta from GottliebTextiles said the embroidery on these bags are a Latvian ethnic sign Austras koks (shortly: tree of life) embroidered on the front of the bag. Austras koks also called Saules koks, which means the dawn or sun tree, protects the family and gives strength and counsel. The roots of the tree are associated with the underworld, the middle – the earth on which people, animals and other living things exist. But the crown of the tree is connected to the spiritual heaven. Usually this tree is an oak and symbolizes the sun’s path and the order of the world.

My horse themed lanyard is picture perfect on a butterum background. The butterum backdrop makes the color of each horse pop even more.
