It’s Mother’s Day! Well, Mother Earth’s Day, that is, and we can’t wait to celebrate it with our Earth. From the perspective of the ancient art of Feng Shui, your connection to Earth and respect for the planet is a major source of life force, energy, and even prosperity. Every single action you take that helps the planet is a major step forward in creating a more life-sustaining universe.
This Earth Day—and each Earth Day thereafter—plant a life to represent something special. Plants and flowers hold meaning and symbolism just like gemstones or crystals. Every month of the year is honored with a unique flower and birthstone that hold emblematic, spiritual and sentimental meaning. On Earth Day, celebrate family and friends by planting seeds that represent each individual, or choose flowers and plants that are symbolically linked to special memories.
If we would all look after our Earth like a bonsai tree gardener looks after a bonsai tree, the Earth would be a much better place. We need to live with nature, not replace it.
The Tree is a symbol of immortality and eternal life. With its branches reaching into the sky and roots deep in the earth, it dwells in three worlds becoming a link between heaven, earth, and the underworld, uniting above and below.
The crystal tree is a replica of the traditional Chinese “wishing tree”. According to legend, the crystal tree was created by a fairy that fell in love with a village boy. She planted this wealth-producing tree to ensure their everlasting happiness and comfort. This started not only the belief in Feng Shui crystal trees attracting wealth but the traditions of leaving wishes written on slips of paper that are hung or placed near a wishing tree to bring good fortune.
Crystals and crystal trees are said to enhance healing energies and focus energies in positive ways. Many people use them as a focus object for meditation and find their visual presence to be calming. The particular stones on the tree help to manifest what you wish for in your life as well as to balance areas of your life and home. Their subtle vibrations can affect the physical, psychological and spiritual levels of being. An earthly treasure for the mind and soul!

The deeper meaning of Earth day
Earth Day was intended to be a chance to learn about ways in which we can live in a more environmentally responsible fashion. Rather than reducing Earth Day to one-day cleaning excursions that have a little long-term impact, we should recognize it as an opportunity to engage in real conversation about topics like reducing our dependence on oil, cutting down on our consumption and waste, and improving our public transportation infrastructure.
One of the best ways to celebrate Earth Day is to plant a green life in the soil. All greenery helps the environment by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen into the air. While plants and trees give back to the earth, they also may be used to commemorate and celebrate milestones, honor a loved one, mark a memory or just simply…because.
