Meaning of the Turtle
Symbolic Turtle Meanings
Those with the turtle as their animal totem can relate to the "sure and steady" message this creature brings to our lives. (the releasing of the sure and steady message of OUR Awakening, our Activation. The sure and steady message of our Declaring in Word and Action, of OUR Sovereignty, OUR Freedom!, the challange we all heard, to release all our information for free, and go viral!!!, and ramp your efforts, for the good cause of All.)Ediamond
It is also a powerful totem for protection as withdrawing into it's shell is an amazing self-defense mechanism. (saying, that we will be protected, go ahead and be free to release, and go with your creativity, do not be afraid, you are protected)Ediamond
The turtle has few predators, which gives it an innocent energy. This also increases its lifespan, and so holds the symbolic meaning forin many cultures.
Did you know the turtle is one of the oldest living animal ancestors on the earth today? (well, well, well,....We were the FIRST Atlantians to RETURN TO ATLANTIS!!)Ediamond The oldest fossils of turtles are dated at over 200 million years old. This is highly symbolic. It indicates the turtle is a symbol of longevity, endurance, persistence, and the continuation of life (sometimes against incredible odds). (ok, NOW YOU see Not to be Afraid, to "ramp up"...)Ediamond
-Ever hear of the old adage "slow and steady wins the race."? Not only is the turtle's walking pace sure and steady, but so is its insistence at being a part of biological life on this earth. Something to consider when connecting with the turtle as a guide and mentor in living a dynamic, long life. (Insistence!!, of informing of OUR awakening, activation. Encouraging of Declaring and Standing UP for Our Sovereignty, Our Freedom!!, from the domination controll matrix) Ediamond

( These all listed above and below, describes the attributes of ALL those who attended, in person and via live stream. This group is a Catalyst to push this to a never returning again mode!! Never, Never, returning again to a domination and control matrix, and on to Sovereignty, Freedom = LIMITLESSNESS!! GLORY!! ) Ediamond
Furthermore, the turtle takes its wisdomat a time - not reacting, simply accepting and moving on in its natural methods. Again, this is a powerful analogy for humankind, and we would benefit from adopting the same behavior pattern.
Tutles share an association with water, which lends meanings of motion, intuition and emotion to the myriad of more symbolic meanings of the turtle.

Common Symbols for Motherhood
Symbol for Mother
Although there is no single universal symbol for mother,mother as absolutely universal.
This is largely due to the fact that we all have a mother and each of us has our own distinct idea of what mother means to us; each impression is more different than the next. Because of vastlyvarying perception of the mother concept - the symbols for her are endless.
From the Madonna to Doves, and from the Lioness to Gardens, the symbol for mother is only limited by the perceiver's perspective.
I've said it time and again, and still maintain that symbols are unique and personal to each of us. What one might deem as the ultimate mother symbol, another will scoff at its implication.
That said, below are a few common cultural symbols for mother. However, bear in mind if a platypus conjures a powerful mother vibration within you - then a platypus is your symbol for mother. It is our own personal experience and preference that is the final judgment of a true symbol. And don't miss my page on mother bird symbolism here.
