Dreaming of Turtles

A reader, whom I will refer to as Tiffany, shared a “turtle” dream that she recently had. I’d like to share it here, with some of my own thoughts. Considering how many responses I’ve gotten from my post, “Turtle Energy – Ancient Origins” it would seem that many people are having turtle dreams.

Turtle Medicine

“I dreamt I was on a station bike in the back of a yard that presumes to be mine and a few feet ahead is like a vast water like the sea but it was of no waves.. as when I looked over I saw straight through to the bottom. It’s very clear and everything looked beautiful the colors it was like watching a magazine under water reef… but what stood out was a large turtle in a still motion with huge eyes beaming right at me that gave me creeps.. so while I was on this station bike, my 4year old old that I love so much was playing near the edge.. and I was telling him move away before he falls in as he cannot swim and he was provoking me as he did it even more putting his feet near the edge and grinning… so then I stay on the bike and started shouting for his dad who was somewhere but not seen to tell him come get Asher before he falls but he didn’t and I woke up..”

Thanks for sharing your dream Tiffany. Here’s the sense I get from it…and please understand that this is just my interpretation from what I get from the symbols and archetypes as they showed up in your dream.

To me the “backyard” represents the parts of yourself not seen by others…and it would make sense that the “vast water like the sea” is your inner life (emotions, feelings, fears, etc.).

You were able to see “straight through to the bottom” of the “vast water” which was “very clear and everything looked beautiful…” which seems to represent your infinite potential (for love, beauty, wisdom, etc.).

Your being on the “station bike” (stationary bike?) seems to represent that part of you that perhaps feels is doing a lot of work but not going anywhere (stationary). Your “child” that you “love so much” was “playing near the edge” represents the child within you that you want to protect from the depths of your infinite potential, as it is scary, too wide, too big, as represented by the “large turtle” with “huge eyes.”

Now your feelings are key here. You wrote “gave me creeps…” Was the feeling dark/forboding, menacing?

I know from my own dreams that when something gives me the “creeps,” there is usually an entity or menacing spirit-type of intrusion. However, when I have vast water dreams, to me it can oftentimes be scary in the sense of too big, wide, vast…never creepy.

If your feelings were “creepy” then it would be helpful to “clear” yourself of dirty or unclean energies, using whatever prayers/rituals that make sense to you, Call in your animal protectors, angelic guides, etc. Smudge yourself with sage, command any unclean, heavy or dark energies to be released to the light.

Anyway, hope this helps!

I seek to connect with those who, like me, feel they have been “charged” to hold and ground the Bliss Resonance for Mother Earth.

Turtle Medicine – Ancient Memories

Turtle Medicine - Live in Peace

Turtle Medicine transports us between dimensions, from waking to dreamtime awareness and back. It helps us to slow down our thoughts and the very frequency that keeps the earth drama in play. As you close your eyes and visualize Turtle Medicine, it is so easy to see the form of Turtle as the Earth Mother, swimming effortlessly through the vastness of space. Touch and feel the hard shell beneath your feet. Listen and feel on the inside as breath slows down and thoughts fall away. Your connection with the Earth can be felt as an ancient memory, a distant playing of song that can be heard in the farthest periphery of awareness. You ride upon the back of Turtle Medicine, through skies and ocean…through all dimensions!

As your breath slows down, gently and in the most natural way, you feel yourself expanding through all realms, until you know your Self as part of all things, including the dance of littleness and limitation that is so much a part of the earth drama. And yet, as you breathe with the breath of Turtle Medicine, and allow its song to wash over you like the warm rays of the Sun, you also know that the dream of littleness is for a short while, and that the Earth Mother is calling you to release the tight hold you have upon the nightmare.

Listen and feel! The breath relaxes and as you watch inhalation meeting exhalation, and exhalation meeting inhalation, the awareness deepens of itself as mind and body slow down, as the frequency of little self melts into the resonance of the Earth Mother. Upon the back of Turtle Medicine you ride, floating so easily, so quietly. Can you feel the hard shell, smooth and worn. When you touch the shell of Turtle you are connecting with the ancient memories of the Great Mystery!

Look into the shell that is beneath your feet. Something is reflecting back from the farthest galaxies of memory. Observe and receive…listen and feel. Turtle Medicine calls you to ride upon its back, to travel through places of light and shadow, pain and joy, enjoying the great dance of creation that unfolds within the openness of your heart! Enjoy and receive!
