Tree of Life has been popularized recently due to the resurging interest in Kabbalah, the study of Hebrew esoteric mysticism. While the Tree of Life has ties to many ancient cultures, it appeared between the 3rd and 6th century in the "Book of Creation (Sefer Yetzira)." The Tree, with its 10 colored points, explains creation as a process involving 10 divine numbers of God. Together with the associated 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, the Tree is said to constitute the 32 paths of secret wisdom.
Kabbalah and the Tree of Life were explored extensively before and after the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492. Knowledge of this information was used to better understand the mysteries of creation and provided mystical revelations about evil, forgiveness and the aspects of the soul.
The Tree of Life provides one of the most profound teachings of universal life force energies.
