I love this saying on so many levels. Visualize a tree in your mind for a moment as we begin. Picture a summer time image of a green tree covered with leaves with a strong trunk and imagine for a moment that you could see the roots as well. The roots absorbing nutrients and the leaves basking in the sun, everything interconnected and thriving in harmony. There would be sap coursing through the tree providing energy to the highest branch and the lowest root, a perfect microcosm.
Each part of the tree depends on the other parts to exist.
I have even read that a tree’s root system exists in direct proportion to what we are able to see, under the ground “as above, so below”. Why would a branch of the tree ever cause harm to another branch of the tree? A solitary act of violence could only result in the demise of the whole tree.
As a Spiritual Medium, in private sessions with clients, if a loved one comes through with a message for someone, and refers to a tree in some capacity, I know they are referring to a family situation that needs healed. Its a metaphor that I have created in my language with the Spirits. This sort of language allows me to get longer messages downloaded to me in an instant, no muss no fuss! A picture is worth a thousand words after all. A family tree is a very important and iconic symbol to me, and it can represent the nuclear family or the human family. Either way, the tree represents so much more than just a plant.
