The Tree of Life is a symbol that occurs in many cultures. Let’s discover its meaning and why giving a jewel that represents it, is a gesture of great affection and friendship
Since ancient times men have bestowed upon the surrounding nature a strong spiritual value. Trees and plants in particular have been used as powerful religious and esoteric symbols as early as ancient civilizations, such as the Egyptians and Greeks.
The Tree of Life is in this sense an archetype that recurs in infinite variations, as a vital symbol, regenerator, and bearer of hope and strength. It depends on the shape of the tree itself, with roots that sink into the ground and symbolise attachment to the earth, to the origins, and the trunk that rises towards the sky, extending branches and leaves and acting in a certain sense as a bridge between the world of men and that of the gods, but also as a boundary between Good and Evil, Life and Death.
In the biblical context, the Tree of Life was placed in the centre of the Earthly Paradise, next to the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Until Adam and Eve, were allowed to eat of it the fruits were immortal, immune to pain, to disease. With the Original Sin and the ensuing expulsion from Paradise, they lost this privilege.
Subsequently, the symbolism of the Tree of Life evolved, transforming itself into the Cross of Jesus, the instrument of Salvation, the emblem of the supreme sacrifice of the Redeemer, who by immolating himself brought God and men closer together, with a new promise of eternal life.
Giving the Tree of Life is a way to wish good luck to someone we love, for the beginning of something new: a new job, a new home, but also marriage and even the birth of a child. The Tree of Life symbolises on the one hand the stability of affection, family, true friendship, and our roots, in short, on the other, the ability to grow and ‘bear fruit’, to develop our potential, our talents, accepting change and improving more and more.
