Turtle: symbol of Longevity, Heaven's Blessings
Learn these lessons from the turtle:
- Reliance on oneself
- Balance in different environments
Turtles live to a very old age and so are often associated with long life. We can learn much about time and the
perception of time by listening to the turtle. Slow and steady, the turtle grows old with grace and lives in harmony
with its surroundings.
The turtle can make a home anywhere and does not become attached to any one place. It can teach us to seek
out new experiences and opportunities. It is able to survive on both land and in water, and teaches us the
lesson of self sufficiency in this way.
The Turtle protects by teaching the family to protect themselves. She brings the blessings of heaven to the
home. Turtle symbolizes both the stability of earth energy, and the magical mysteries of heaven.
