Angelology and the Tree of Life
The Tree of Life represents all that is in alignment with living. Itís a symbol and a reality that serves to remind us of the importance of everything and how it all works together to serve the betterment of the whole. Imagine a tree taking root in your own backyard. As it is fed with the rain of heaven, the warmth of the sun, the nutrients in the soil and the cycle of shedding the old and bearing the new, we can see God at work. The Tree of Life not only signifies the mechanics of God but also the compassion. It provides shade and protection. It bears fruit that will nourish us and in many cases offers its whole being.
The Tree of Life touches every global community and penetrates every religion known to mankind. It has a physiological blueprint that parallels the universeís design and all that has been manifested here on Earth. You will find the universal Law of Seven in every facet of its existence. Like the Seven Chakras, the Seven Archangels, and the Seven Octaves, The Tree of Life has seven branches that represent a union of all that is; supported by the trunk. This represents our strength and diversity in acknowledging the many different aspects of ourselves. The branches are seen as male and female. The lowest or first branch symbolizes our Body Self; our sense of wellness. The second is an expression of our Personality; its vitality determines how well we are received and perceived by others. The third branch represents our relationship with the divine and how easily we are able to connect. The fourth branch signifies our thirst for Knowledge. The fifth branch is called the Void. Its health facilitates an understanding of the collective consciousness of oneness. The sixth branch represents our Truth; the Essence of who we are; the 'I Am'. The seventh and final branch, like the crown chakra is the primary portal or connection to the divine allowing one to explore that which is not attached or of the physical body. Keeping our own Tree of Life healthy is vital if we are to be productive instruments of God. But most importantly, the thing to remember is that the Tree of Life represents the highest degree of the world of existence; the position of the Word of God, and the Supreme Manifestation. Itís no wonder so many are driven to save the trees on this beloved planet. Each leaf that flourishes as a result of our love is said to summon another angel to our side. And fortunately, we have many angels, legions of angels governed by the likes of the 'Magnificent Seven' Archangels in our presence committed to sustaining our significance and the integrity with which we were created.
