In the mystical tradition of Judaism, the science of the tree of life is called the Kabbalah, this wisdom is universal, and is found in every great religious tradition.
The science of the tree of life is a map of the universe, and of the human soul.
The tree of life is an ancient symbol, that is universal in meaning, and is found in all the cultures that have held the esoteric knowledge.

The tree of life symbolizes the structure of the soul, and the structure of creation.
Its roots are in the highest realms, and its branches and leaves are all the world’s and the many beings that exist.
This tree gives us the fruit of life, sustenance and wisdom.
Possessing an illuminated tree of life within, means that one’s inner senses are fully open and active, providing a direct relationship with God.
