Tree of Life

The Tree of Life symbol is commonly depicted as a large tree with roots that spread inward to the ground, and branches that spread outward to the sky.

Tree of life is very symbolic for personal growth, strength and beauty.

The Tree of Life its branches strengthen and grow upwards to the sky, we too grow stronger, striving for greater knowledge, wisdom and new experiences as we move through life.

Another idea of using the tree as a symbol to tell stories about one's life.

When you think of a tree, its roots, trunk, branches, leaves, etc, and imagine that each part of the Tree represents something about your life.

Over time, trees lose leaves and appear to be dead, and can gain more unique characteristics, as branches break off, new ones grow, and as the weather takes its toll - all throughout which the tree remains strong and sturdy.

When conditions are right the tree comes back to life, with beautiful leaves again which can symbolise rebirth and getting through difficult times.
