Uncover hidden spiritual meanings

The Norse World Tree which includes the underground to the earth.

The Yggdrasil is one of the most famous of trees in the occult world. Known as the axis tree. It has the following: heavens, earth and also the underworld. This is a type of ask tree and the branches are suppose to reach all parts of the world. Legand has it that the god named Odin is hanged on the tree, which is similar to how Jesus was crucified on a cross.  The Yggrasil is a tree that is right in the middle of the universe. It is found in the axis of the earth. The tree is known as the tree that holds up the sky, also the tree of life. It is between the world of Astrid where the gods live in large halls, and the humans live in smaller halls.

Also known as the World Tree or Tree of Life, is a part of a great Norse myth in which the Norse God Odin, the All Father, was stabbed in the side and hung upside down from the World Tree for nine days and nine nights in order for him to acquire the wisdom of the ages as well as the perspective of hanging in one place for so long.

This tree represents the knowledge and wisdom which is alive in all things but that which remains hidden as a result of our own internal struggles and ignorance. While Odin hung from the World tree, starving and thirsty, he was visited by the fates who rewarded him for his service and duty to a form of spiritual enlightenment by gifting him with the wisdom that he sought which made him more able to reign supreme. He was a wise and fatherly God, whose perspective greatly thrived as a result of the presence of Yggdrasil in his life.

The Tree of Life, also known as the Etz Chaim (עץ חיים), is the principal map that makes up the Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism. At first glance the tree of life looks very simple but there are multiple depths to the meanings of the tree, the sephiroth, and the path linking everything together describes the manifestations of the divine creation in the book of the formation, the Sefer Jetzirah (יצירה ספר).

The tree of life is sub-divided into several levels of the ten primal numbers which are represented by the Sephiroth that are then linked by the 22 paths. The paths correspond to the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. The sephiroth also organized into three categories known as the pillars; they are the pillar of mercy, the pillar of severity and the middle pillar or the pillar of balance.
