Get started – choose your spirit animal here – if you chose TURTLE, read on:
“Turtle” can refer to a sea turtle or a terrestrial turtle, more accurately known as a tortoise. Tortoises have taller shells and sturdy feet for walking, whereas sea turtles have leaner shells and flipper-like limbs to help them swim. Whichever variety calls to you, all turtles can represent positive qualities that we as humans strive to embody.

Choose the turtle as your spirit animal when you want to:

  • visualize you have a shell of protective energy surrounding you
  • remind yourself to move slowly and enjoy the process
  • adopt a chill and laid-back perspective
  • keep moving and making baby steps of progress every day
  • tap into the wisdom of your elders or your past experiences
Patience. Wisdom. Protection. Determination. Take your time. Enjoy the journey. Go your own pace. Feeling safe and secure. Protecting yourself and your own.

Turtle-inspired mantras:

  • I am safe and protected.
  • I go at my own pace; the most important thing is to keep moving.
  • Life is all about enjoying the journey and not rushing getting to a destination.
  • I am wise beyond my years, all I need to do is listen.
  • Everything I need is already inside of me.
