The Tree of Life has been theorized to have come from the Flower of Life and is a prominent symbol in the Kabbalah discipline of esoteric Judaism. The Tree of Life contains ten spiritual symbols, called the 10 Sephiroth. Each Sephiroth represents a specific aspect of God, so when put together in the Tree of Life, they depict the name of God.
In Kabbalah, the 10 Sephiroths also refer to the Chakras, each of which aligns to specific energy within the human body. The Tree of Life symbolizes the ‘idea of common descent’ in the teachings of Kabbalah. this tree of life is believed to be similar to that of the tree of life found in the Book of Genesis.
