The Olive Tree is used to symbolize the Greek word Elan. Being in the state of Elan is a positive feeling of wanting to push ahead with something inspired by passion or enthusiasm.
"I feel revitalized in my mind and body. I tap into an unlimited energy source within me. I relax and experience a new strength."
- Affirmation of Elan
"It is a tenant of all teachings that the ordering of thought and the harmonizing of feelings have a powerful impact upon our ability to manifest change, both within ourselves and within the world."
