Tree Dreams: Spirituality & Grounding

The tree is an ancient symbol of life as the roots firmly grounded in the soil and the branches reach for the heavens. Dating as far back as ancient Egypt the pine tree can be directly linked to the pineal glad or higher consciousness.

Dreaming of a tree might suggest being grounded spiritually as well connecting to the heavens from the crown/chakra. Could this dream be a refection of spiritual nourishment, or lack there of.

The duality of the tree shows that our self is androgynous; the masculine and feminine must work in harmony in order to become complete. The flourishing of its leaves, as the branches protrude embracing the sun connects to the feminine. The hardness from the roots and bark represent the masculine.

The Bodhi Tree or Fig Tree (tree of awakening) is synonymous with the enlightenment of Buddha. The Buddha meditated without moving from his seat for seven weeks under the Bodhi. As one meditated there energy is grounded like the roots of the tree, as they are open to the universe above.

Carl Jung famously quoted “no tree, it is said, can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell”, stating that one should know its evil (shadow), in order to be truly good.

My dream was about a tree that was planted when I was young in the backyard of the house I lived in as a kid. But the tree was being cut down because it had bad parts to it then they cut the hole thing down and it was mad. They didn’t realize till it was to late that the hole tree didn’t have to be cut. While they were cutting it a bunch of wood roaches and bugs came flying out and some chased me !

A specific tree, not even one I see very often, made an appearance in my dream. I know in my heart it was asking me for help. I don’t know what I can do except to go visit where the tree is telling me to go. The tree has touched me deep in my soul, and I have cried for the first time in months, it has both imparted to me healing, and a signal of distress. I want to do what I can to help, thank you wise tree of my dreams.

Had a dream about a tree that was “magically” changing shape at the will of a child and it wasn’t even natural. It was very chaotic, but beautiful. Some of the transformed shapes didn’t have leaves.

Not sure what to make of it. If I had to guess, I’m about to have a child to change my life? I’m not even seeing anyone.
