The Tree of Life
To personalize my practice, I ordered the drawing of a tree trunk with its roots and branches to Dany L., an artist that I had the great pleasure to meet at her place in Saône.
We went together to buy a big board on which she would paint the picture. First setback, the size of the board was 3-cm too wide to go into my car! Fortunately, Jacques, her husband, came to our rescue with blankets, belts and carrier straps to fasten it on the roof.
When the work was dry, Thierry and I went to pick it up and drive it from Saône to Chalezeule by the road of La Malate. We can say that we drove like a snail with the board fixed upon the roof to avoid it flying away with the breath of the air…
What a great pleasure to finally install this painting in the practice, as it means a lot to me. Actually, the tree symbolizes the Cosmos alive, regenerating ceaselessly. Source of physical fertility, psychological protection and spiritual awakening, it is a beneficial symbol of the life in perpetual evolution.
This work is a co-creation with the people who receive Reiki care: they can, if they wish, before leaving, apply one or more fingerprints with colors they choose – colors of chakras – to create and enlarge the foliage of this tree.
Dany, thank you from the bottom of my heart to have spontaneously agreed to contribute to the creation of the atmosphere of my Reiki place.
