Alex and Ani Charm of the Month
This month of September, 2016, is featuring the Alex and Ani Charm of the Month of the Tree of Life design. This particular design has symbolism in many spiritual traditions. The Tree of Life is always pictured with long roots that extend deep within the earth and it is always depicted with many branches.
In Judaism, the Tree of Life has many meanings. First, right at the beginning of the Torah, Adam and Eve eat from the Tree of Knowledge. This took away their right to access the Tree of Life and they were banished from the Garden of Eden. The Kabbalah’s version symbolizes the powers in the divine realm. But on a daily basis, the Tree of Life is used in reference to the Torah itself.
In Christianity, the Tree of Life is directly associated with Jesus. It symbolizes many things, but also being free of corruption and a return to a holy state of being. Some believe the fruit of this tree is the Christ.
