One night I dreamt I was a turtle, but a turtle without a shell. I was so frightened and felt so vulnerable that I hid myself in a shoe box. What a relief it was when I found the shell and affirmed that I have one to protect me after all.
The turtle, a symbol of Mother Earth, has always provided us with abundance. As the turtle moves easily from water to land, it helps us to manifest our dreams and bring them into material reality. It also reminds us that sometimes going slower gets you there sooner.
