I left my busyness to find this little guy on our sidewalk:
For some reason, all the turtle stuff really got to me there. I was intrigued with the slow, intentional movements of turtles.
Turtles carry so much symbolism from different cultures, religions and parts of the world. Here are just a few:
-Turtles symbolize Heaven and Earth coming together.
-Turtles represent the 'doorway' into Heaven.
-A turtle represents creation.
-Turtles represent inner reflection and peace.
Here's the lesson I get from turtles:
Patience really is a virtue. Slow down and think before you act. Be solid, grounded and true to who you are. Reflect before acting and seek your true destination. Use your shell for protection when needed, but in order to move forward, you'll need to stick your head out. Things will happen - you'll get there. It just may take a little more time than expected.
This creature appeared at my front door for a reason, and I'd be a fool to ignore his message. Sometimes things show up just when you need them.
