"If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected." ~Chief Seattle
Since it’s #worldturtleday I gotta give a shout-out to 2 of my most influential teachers, who just happen to be one of my Totem Animals.
Meet Feldspar & Magma.
Their combined ages make them nearly 200 years of age & their combined weight makes them 1100lbs.
What really makes them G R E A T is their endless love, their brilliance, and ability to teach countless souls the real meaning of kindness, respect, honor & trust.
But these two giant tortoises couldn’t be more different; Magma is calm, grounded, and gentle.
Feldspar is, well, in a word, FEISTY.
Together, they were balanced.
Before I knew anything about energy medicine, managing my energy, and learning that I was an #empath these two tortoises were my foundation.
My rocks. My safety. My teachers. My Guides.
Often our totem animals are often right in front of us. They are teaching us, often when we think we are teaching them! Our totem animals can be an anchor when we are in need of grounding and stability.. When we are hurting they can help us heal. They are divine gifts in strange, beautiful wrapping paper.
These two tortoises were all of this and more.
