Considered by many traditions to be the holiest of the Elements, the Earth is both maternal and fertile, as powerful and devastating. It represents the womb of humanity from which we all come and to which we return at the end of our journey. The Earth is the Great Mother, and women and men are her children. One of them, not her only one.
Since ancient civilizations, the Tree is the thing that most represents this element, because it participates in the states of the universe. Its roots sink into the Earth element, while its branches stretch towards the sky and the rest of the universe.
And in fact, the forest is often considered a sacred place par excellence.The forest manifests nature in its extraordinary richness.
