Guardian Animal Spirit Guide: TORTOISE/TURTLE


When the pace of life becomes too hectic the turtle shows us how to slow down and go with the flow.


If turtle has crawled into your subconscious, it may carry the message to remain mobile and flexible in your spiritual walk and not to acquire more possessions that you need. The burden of possessions can slow our spiritual journey.

The turtle teaches us to accept the world we live in and to adapt to changes when needed.

If turtle comes with a message for you, it may be interpreted to mean that you should listen closely to your physical and spiritual senses, and vibrations and move slowly and cautiously to adapt.

When the turtle negotiates uneven terrain and its weight causes it to flip over onto its rounded shell, it uses its strong neck to right itself. This ability when communicated by messages from the turtle may be a sign to use the tools at your disposal to use your inner senses and knowledge to correct the problem when your life becomes upside down.

The turtle animal spirit guide teaches us about walking our path in peace and sticking to it with determination and serenity. Slow moving on earth, yet also incredibly fast and agile in water, those who have the turtle as animal spirit guide may be encouraged to take a break in their busy lives and look around or within themselves for more grounded, long lasting solutions. Traditionally, the turtle is symbolic of the way of peace, whether its inviting us to cultivate peace of mind or a peaceful relationship with our environment.
