I just planted in my front yard an oak tree, I received this tree at my yearly sun/moon dance in Va, one of our
four-year dancers gave them out as gifts for all the dancers. I do not share a lot of when I am dancing but I will share this
great gift I received and it came off of the tree that is in the dance itself, I am honored to have a part of this tree at my house
now. May we all have an oak tree in our life to give us strength.
The mighty oak tree:
“Celtic Oak Meaning
The oak is considered a cosmic storehouse of wisdom embodied within
its towering strength.
Ancient Celts observed the oak’s massive growth and impressive expanse. They
took this as a clear sign that the oak was to be honored for its
endurance, and noble presence.
Indeed, wearing oak leaves was a sign of special status among the Celts (as
well as ancient Greeks and Romans). Today we see artistic renditions of the
“Leafman” in which a man’s face is covered in leaves. This is an evolution of
lore that dates back to earth-based spirituality in which the regal power of
the oak was recognized and honored.
There are accounts that trace the name “druid” to duir, the Celtic term for
the oak. More interestingly, the actual translation of duir is “door” and lore
indicates the spiritually advanced Celts would access the ethereal planes
of higher thought (psychic vision or soul-thought) by “opening the oak door.”
The Celtic meaning of the oak tree includes attributes such as:
The oak’s status was (and still is) undeniable. Further merit to its regal
presence is its tendency to attract lightning. This was considered hugely
powerful among the ancients and is associated with one of their foremost gods,
Its attraction for lightning, its size and longevity (oaks are known to
easily surpass 200 years of age) all make the oak a powerful, life-affirming
The oak is a living legend representing all that is true, wholesome,
stable, and noble. When you are in need of stability and strength in your life –
envision the oak in your mind’s eye. Picture yourself drawing into its endless
energy waves. Soon, you will find yourself sharing in its power.
There is a reason the oak is considered the king of green realm. The
oak is generous with its gifts – just as any good ruler shares its bounty
amongst the kingdom.”
