The north American Christian view of “The tree of life”, first referenced in the book of Genesis, is a life-giving tree created to support the physical and spiritual life of humanity. The tree was established by God in the Garden of Eden: “And out of the ground the LORD God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”(Genesis 2:9).
In Australia – quote “The Tree of Life represents harmony, unity and ultimately the connection between Heaven and Earth – those who wear one help expand this knowledge”. this statement, which was, found on an Australian website clearly says a lot about what this tree symbolizes in Australia.
The Tree of Life has diverse meaning across many cultures.
In islamic religions call the “Tree of Life,” the date palm is said in Arab Muslim legend to have been made from the dust that was left over after the creation of Adam, and it was the first cultivated tree in history, having been grown in Arabia for at least 8,000 years.
Directions for the date palm’s husbandry are recorded on sun-baked bricks made in Mesopotamia (Iraq) more than 5,000 years ago, and the date palm is mentioned in the Holy Quran and in the poetry and proverbs of the Middle East. It is used as a symbol in the Arab world, particularly in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and is the architectural inspiration for columns in the Arab world – mistakenly referred to as Corinthian columns – at both ancient and more recent sacred sites in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, East Jerusalem, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya among other places. Ancient Phoenician coins have images of date palms.
Islam tradition regards the date palm tree as the ”Tree of Life’”, and ancient traditions place it in the Garden of Eden. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) salutations and blessings be upon him said “There is among the trees, one which is blessed – it is the date palm, for it was created from the earth left over from the creation of Adam.”

In Asia, Hindu mythology, it is the Cosmic Tree, for the Babylonians it is the tree with the divine fruit, for the Zoroastrians it is the Haoma Tree, while in Chinese mythology the one who eats its fruits becomes immortal.
In America wiccan views embrace the tree of life.
In Wicca, trees are living things that are filled with the essence and energy of the Elements and the Divine. It is the embodiment of “As Above, So Below,” it signifies a bridge between the Earth and the Divine and that what is happening below, is reflected above; and what is happening above is reflected below. According to myth, The Tree of Life also shows you how everything is connected; from the smallest organisms to our Earth being a part of the solar system, and the solar system being connected to the galaxies beyond. The Tree of Life is the gift of the gods to us, they have been a source of sustenance and shelter to our ancestors and they still do on this day.
