So what’s in a name – why, FIR? It’s all about what it represents…the process of healing and finding supports that help us thrive is not easy but always worth it. When we can band together, we find strength in each other and more importantly we find strength in ourselves.
The fir demonstrates all the tools one needs to achieve high esteem.
It is a symbol of honesty, truth, and forthrightness because of the way it grows on the “straight and narrow.” The trunk of the fir reminds us of a tall, straight pillar of strength, a symbolic tower of truth.
Grouped, they are a symbol of friendship. The strength of FIRs protects each other in storms. The symbolism is furthered by the fact that they never lose their vibrancy – they are a reminder of the life-long connections we share.
Their nature signifies hope, promise, and renewal amid the long, dark winter months. Celebrations and rituals center around the fir, setting intentions for the upcoming abundance after enduring hardships.
The firs can outlive and outlast most other trees showing resilience and longevity. It also survives harsh and challenging times showing endurance and determination.
The fir cone opens to the sun and closes against impending rain — this lent meanings of prophecy and perception.
Even from great distances, firs were the markers of great chieftains and heroes. Thus, the fir is also considered a symbol for reverence and remembrance to brave souls that have endured.
Like the magnificent FIRs that have gone before us, it is together that we find the hero that lies within each of us.
