Messages of Turtle Symbolism and Meaning...

The brilliant message from this little Turtle Totem is not to push yourself so fast that you make errors and miss opportunities.  The Turtle has the wisdom of knowing that all things come in perfect and divine timing, sharing the golden lesson of patience.

Turtle understands the need for protection... self protection and the protection of those you love.  Turtle has a shell that becomes it's home, whenever it is threatened it retreats to safety of it's shell... this brings symbolic meaning from the Turtle that you too can do the same, by creating a spiritual shield that is your armor against negativity, harmful influences, and painful memories.   In retreat gather your inner wisdom and emerge strengthened and prepared to move forward, Turtle Spirit guide is there to guide you through.


Symbolism of the Sea Turtle ... Surrendering to the Journey

The strong and hearty Sea Turtle takes vast journeys in the sea, letting the tides take her where they will, she surrenders in infinite trust that all will be okay, and she will arrive when and where opportunity will serve her.  This is a beautiful lesson of enjoying the journey of your life, trusting in the flow and partaking of the blessings that are bestowed upon the way.  In life there is no absolute destination... but a myriad of journeys, this is the symbol of the Turtle.  I like to see the Turtle as having the symbol and magic of serendipity... experiencing happy accidents.


Turtle Meaning and the Symbols of Longevity

A magnificent gift from Turtle meaning is longevity.  Turtles live a very long and fruitful life, and teaches great spiritual significance of taking the very best care of self and having a long life filled with splendid journeys having learned many valuable life lessons.


Spiritual Meaning of Turtle...  Going inside to find Peace

The inner wisdom that comes from Turtle spirit animal arrives from "going inside" finding peace and safety and taking journeys of the spirit.  These journeys of spirit opens the Turtle and you up to the magic realm of imagination and intuition, where anything is possible.
