What You Learn In This Article
Now we will learn the first part of how the image of a palm tree in a painting tells the a viewer to feel.
Earlier articles in this series applies to the lore behind palms in art paintings or drawings. Similarly, everything read previous to this section applies to trees-in-general, so naturally, it applies to palm trees as well.
We Will Only Look At Healthy Palm Trees
The analysis in this sections will be only about healthy and tall palm trees in fine art paintings. If you want to read about the sick or withered ones, refer to sections 2 and 3 of this chain of articles.
A List Of Benefits From Seeing The Images Of Palm Trees
When seen in any or all kinds of art works, palm trees tell the looker to be peaceful and tranquil. They tell him to be aware of opportunities.
The palm trees in your custom oil painting instruct the viewer to aspire highly, to "shoot for the stars", or to "go for the brass ring." They tell him/her to succeed or to perhaps be famous.
Various Benefits Of The Sight Of Palm Trees' Images
If we suppose that palm trees have been added to original paintings, then might we ask, "what else does the sight, of palm trees suggest the looker?" It tells him/her to hope or to be hopeful. Moreover, it tells the viewer to live long.
Remember, I beg of you, I am not telling you these meanings based upon my own authority; I merely assume that the sources that I found on the internet are authoritative. They may be so, or they may be not so.
The sight of palms tell us to feel a sense of peace. That same image allows us to be aware of opportunities and chances as they emerge or appear in our life's drama, or lila.
Older societies felt that the palm tells us to be fertile.
Greely Revised: "Go Beyond, Young One"
The sight of palm trees, in any work of oil painting art, speaks to our unconscious. The sight of them instructs our unconscious to tell us to go up above and beyond to the spot where small entities compete against one another.
The palms tell us to shine, shine, shine, high above the trivial and disappointing layer of being, just as the Sun does shine upon Earth.
The symbolic readings in this article have been paraphrased from other authorities rather than myself.
Palms And Paradise
Paradise has often been thought of as having both palms and ocean. Thus, when combined with ocean in a custom oil painting, the palm might also be a symbol of paradise. I decided to look up a definition, of "paradise:"
The first definition listed of the word literally means a park, with a wall around it.
However, the second definition of "paradise" is in this wise: "wanting to balance our consciousness and to make it to be whole, as it, though as hidden, has ever been."
Palm Fronds Welcome Folks Back To Home
Palms have been known to welcome those who return home. Along with the event are the feelings of getting a desired end and of making those who return home feel that they are welcome. Finally, more to the point, palms symbolize the glory and fulfillment that our soul feels as we come back to our source.
The wisely laid palm leaves upon the path that was taken by Jesus as he walked into Jerusalem.
Some of the heirs of the gifts of Jesus Christ used palms to represent resurrection. To them, or to us, this means winning against the threat of death by becoming one with Jesus Christ.

Palm Trees Represent The Sun
One source I found on the internet has claimed that each palm shares the same meanings as gives the Sun.
When we look upward from the bottom of a tall palm tree, we observe a "sunburst" of leaves, radiating, as it were, out from the crown of the stem of the tree. It is as though we are seeing an image, or symbol, of the Sun.
Here Are The Solar Meanings For You!
The following list details some of the effects that we get when we observe images, or symbols, of the Sun. Palms are symbols of the Sun too.
  1. Our unconscious is instructed to make us be truthful.
  2. We are told, unconsciously, to be aware of quality and to value high quality.
  3. We are told to receive honor.
  4. Our unconscious is told to be warm, both physically and in our personality.
  5. Solar tokens tell to us to expand, to increase, and to grow.
  6. We are told to be energetic and vital.
  7. We are told to guard others and to be ourselves, guarded and safe.
  8. We are unconsciously told to aspire.
  9. We are told to succeed and to win.
  10. We are told to be fertile.
  11. Any Solar symbol tells us to bring like-minded elements together into a team or into but one grouping.
  12. Solar tokens tell us to be reborn and to be resurrected. The sight of the palm tree tells us, unconsciously, to revive that sparky or happy shard, which may have once died in us
  13. A Solar token tells us to concentrate on one goal at a time.
What Have Alchemists Decided?
Any palm tree has the male symbolism, just like the Sun, which is also a male symbol. The same tree has also the female betoken, due to its succulent fruit and the palm's representation of fertility. The stem of the tree is a phallic token, and, at its tip, is a round, feminine array of leaves.
It has been reported, that alchemists have regarded the palm tree as a token of androgyny, or both sexes being found in one person.
I cannot say from my own experience whether psychic androgyny is, or is not, a desirable outcome. If it is one, then it would be heartened by adding a palm tree, or trees, into a custom oil painting.
