Animal Totem - Turtle

By Susan Jolley

This Animal Totem is the Turtle - Mother Earth, Walking your Path, Determination

Turtle Island is the name given to the American continent by the Native Americans.  It is believed that the turtle carried the weight of the land on her back.  Turtle is reminding you that you need to honor the earth.  All that you have comes from Mother Earth and you must take care of her and show her gratitude.  It is important that you create a better home, not only for yourself but for all beings residing on her.  Turtle will teach you the art of grounding yourself to Earth’s power and strength and how to use these limitless energies rather that your own to accomplish your goals.  Earth energy is also associated with Feminine energy which fosters peace and harmony.

Turtle shows you how to peacefully walk on the earth.  Her path represents the path you take as you embark on your journey.  It is this which anchors your personal unfolding in a slow, more grounded series of steps and longer cycles of transformation rather than a series of bursts.  She teaches you to slow down, pace yourself and take in wisdom one day at a time by not reacting but by simply accepting and moving on in your own natural way.

Turtle teaches you determination and staying strong despite obstacles or distractions that appear in your path.  Release the things, including people, who weigh you down.  Listen deeply to your inner guidance and trust your path no matter what.  Slow down.  If you think you do not have time you are wrong.  All you possess is time.  If you did not have time you would not be alive.  Take one step at a time and allow each step to fill you with earth’s energies.
