Spiritual and Totem Insights for the Day the Turtle

Today we have Turtle stepping in to share with us Wisdom’s of Old.  It is time we begin to remember and honor what our Ancestors have lived and sacrificed for us and the fact that they did not walk this earth so that we would hold onto anger and mistrust of each other, but rather for us to learn from those mistakes and have better foundations. To continue looking back will hold us static in one place. Standing in the shadows is not what we are meant to do, we are people of light and it is time we begin acting like it.

Although there is to be a balance between the light and dark in our worlds, it needs to balance as Day turns to night and back to day again … so must we do the same. We must use the time of darkness for rest waking to the light and moving forward in positives. Our Ancestors gave us teachings we must live by, walk with and speak to… for to do so is to honor them, and in turn honoring our own Sacredness.

Turtle teaches us that we need to remember to walk our paths slow and steady with determination, for if we do our goals will surely be met. They remind us that sometimes it is best to walk on solid ground strong and precise with each step, and at other times it is better to dive into the waters and swim with the current allowing life to assist us in that forward motion.

Turtle helps us to ground reminding us that slowing down and pacing each step will help us build confidence for as we walk at this pace, we will see more of what is being shared with us by the world around us… knowledge of the “Old Ones”. Slowing our pace, calming our breath, listening to our heartbeat, centering our spirit so that we are in balance and sync with the rest of our world.

Turtles remind us that what we need is provided for us, that we need to remember the beginning, the simple and honor all that is Sacred, for it is part of who we all are. Be humble, grateful and make the most of what we have and what we are offered.


“I am Dedicated to Educating and sharing Culture with the World. It is not enough merely to teach the ways of our Elders. We must honor those traditions by sharing and educating the World. Inspiring others …Inspiring our Youth. Through the Music… the Arts…the stories…”
Many Blessings of the Day
