Tree Branches

7_Crown Chakra - Upperworld

The crown chakra is associated with the archetype of tree branches that are reaching out for spiritual connection.

They represent our desire to connect to something beyond our self. Just as the roots of a tree reach downinto the earth, branches reach up toward the sky. Many early cultures believed that when a person diedtheir physical body returned to the earth and their soul or spirit returned to the stars. The word divine comes from the Latin root word “devin” meaning “as above”.  The sound of wind through the branches of a tree believed to be the voice of the divine.

In Sumerian mythology, Enlil was known as the lord of the wind, and the Cedars of Lebanon were the home of the gods.

Enlil became known as El and Elohim, which inspired the Judeo-Christian faith. There are multiple myths that associate trees with the divine. The Greek sky god Zeus was associated with oak trees.  The name Zeus is directly related to the Vedic sky father Dyaus Pitr, later known as Jove or Jupiter in Rome. There are thousands of names for “god”, which is also nameless.

The branches of a tree hold these sacred stories written in the sky as the crown chakra connects us to our source.

Message: It is time for us to reach out and believe in our dreams.  Allow our dreams to be known so the universe can help us make them come true.  Remember that we are a child of the universe who came from the stars.

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” – John Muir 

If you liked what you read and want more... you may be interested in having the actual guidebook and card deck. The 134 page full-color book is sold separately from the cards. My goal is to find a publisher who can offer this as a set. In the meantime, you can purchase either the book or cards via these links. Thank you for your support. Laural
