Symbolism: Native American symbol for strength of character and courage
Trees evoke strong emotions in many of us, from the simple beauty of the changing seasons to diverse symbolism that so eloquently mirrors our own lives. Deeply rooted in Mother Earth, trees courageously brace themselves against formidable storms and tenaciously hold their ground. Their branches, like outstretched arms, provide respite and shelter to numerous creatures… doing so even after their lifeforce has withered away.
Native American legend and lore has a rich history of symbolism and a deep respect for all of Mother nature … and trees are no exception. Not only did trees provide shelter and fire, but these “Standing People”, as the Cherokee called them, were an integral part of sacred medicines and rituals. For instance, tree branches were carefully carved into prayer sticks and talking sticks, the wood specifically selected from the chosen species based upon its meaning and symbolism. Oak trees, in particular, stood as a symbol for strength of character and courage. Choose this Mighty Oak pendant to be your sacred amulet and use it as a touch stone when you need to draw upon your own inner strength and courage.
