Kin Essence - Achieve greatness by taking one small step at a time
The turtle is such a beautiful majestic reptile in water. A true master of protection, durability and awareness. Turtles have been known to live for up to 100 years, and their hardened shell exterior, like other reptiles, sheds each plate for growth, however this occurs constantly rather than in one big time period of their lives. Turtles remind us that with constant growth and peeling off of old layers, we can become stronger and more powerful and allows us to not burn out or have to retreat for long. A turtle’s strong shell allows it to live fearlessly and freely, without worry or self-limiting beliefs.
They have beak-like mouths that help them to cut and break down their prey. Turtles also have amazing night vision, and their eyes are usually always looking down to the depths below, a symbol of higher perspective and heightened insight to the world around them. This could be why they seem to survive for such long periods of time in the wild, due to having few natural predators and being well-adapted to their environment.
Turtles remind us to stay dedicated and determined to achieve our goals with serenity and grace. Turtles are the ultimate old soul, bringing with them the experience of many lifetimes and wild stories from the great seas. Their ancient wisdom and faultless grace touches our spirit and reminds us of the importance of each precious moment.
