For Coven Life
When this ancient soul enters your life it is prompting you to take a glimpse at immortality.
The turtle is connected to the power of peace, adventure, resilience, adaptation and productivity. People drawn to this energy are usually old souls, ones that are attracted to both the sea and land.
Many beautiful mythological stories have been told about this wondrous creature that possesses an eternal soul.
The Turtle is connected to the creation story time and time again, throughout many cultures.
- In Hindu Mythology the world is thought to rest on the backs of four elephants that are standing on the back of a turtle.
- In Africa it was though that the turtle gave all the animals their colours.
- In North America of the Cheyenne tradition the Great Grandmother Turtle carries the whole world and of course creation itself on her back.
- In Chinese mythology it was the turtle that helped create the world
It has been used as protection against evil, as good luck for voyages by sea and by land across the globe.
Most importantly I believe that the turtle energy helps us close all other books and begin to tell our own true tale. Turtle energy is behind all great storytellers and writers. So if you are feeling the need to be inspired as a writer or storyteller, try and connect to the Turtle, you might be pleasantly surprised with your creative writing and spoken word.
