Dreaming Of Turtles
Dreaming Of Turtles
When the turtle is in danger it uses its shell as a protective blanket, without this shell the turtle is a defenseless animal.
I have loved writing this dream meaning because I am a complete turtle nerd. Many people purchase turtles as pets because of their cuteness, in dreams turtles can also be wild. We can learn a lot from turtles about how to live our lives. I can remember once I swam with sea turtles in the Maldives and could feel the energy of protection as they soured above me with their dazzling colors. My belief is that the turtle as a spiritual symbol shows us the importance of taking things slowly and carefully, as well as staying strong. We are also reminded of the importance of protecting ourselves and our environment by turtles.
Dreaming about a turtle can indicate that you are resisting change. In ancient dream lore, the turtle seen in a dream represents balance, health, potential, faith, loyalty, and above all protection. The slow pace of the turtle also indicates that progress will be made but it may take time to achieve your goals. The turtle can appear in your dreams in a wide range of ways, which I outline below in a question-and-answer format.
Turtles are normally found in tropical water in the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic oceans, dreaming of them could include seeing them in the ocean, wearing a turtle necklace, a pet turtle, or even seeing a gigantic turtle. The green turtle is engaged and has swum in the water longer than we have been on the earth. They are around 100 million years old.
Why is this dream important?
A turtle's hard shell protects it from predators and the environment, just as it's important for us to take care of our bodies and our planet. Turtles are not mentioned in the Bible, so there is no definitive biblical meaning. The hard shell of turtles, however, may serve as a symbol of strength and stability in the face of destruction. As a turtle lives in water, this represents new beginnings and cleansing. It is, therefore, possible to see turtles in dreams are a symbol of renewal and hope.
I like to use metaphors when explaining my dream meanings, a small turtle once lived in the forest, of course, there were many dangers in the forest, even though it was a stunning place. Turtles must be careful every day not to get eaten by predators or stepped on by careless hikers. In the middle of the turtle’s day, he was suddenly attacked by a large bird. As the bird approached him, he picked up the turtle with his yellow beak and then flew away with him. There was no doubt in the little turtle's mind that he would die in the attempt. After he remembered what his mother had told him: "Turtles are strong and resilient, so don't give up if you think you're going to die."
The little turtle held on tight to his mother's advice, and sure enough, he eventually escaped the bird's beak. Safe and sound, he slowly walked back home after falling into a tree. The moral of the story here is that no matter what difficulties or hardships you face, you can always walk away. Sometimes in life, we forget that we have a choice to escape problems. As a dream symbol, this is a message that when things come crashing down around you there is always a way out and you will survive being trapped - and escape, just like the little turtle escaped the beak of the bird. Turtles are believed to symbolize strength, reliability, and enduring tribulations in dreams. The turtle is also considered a symbol of good fortune so this is a positive dream.
Dream of being attacked by a turtle
Being attacked by a turtle in a dream is never a nice feeling. What does this mean to be attacked by a turtle? In this dream, you might feel overpowered or overwhelmed. It could also represent your own insecurity about the future or fear of change. If you felt scared and helpless during the attack, this could be a symbol of some negative aspects of your life that need to be addressed. If, however, you were able to fight back and defeat the turtle, it could represent a victory over something you have been struggling with. To kill the turtle in your dream can signify that others will connect to you.
What does a turtle mean in your dream?
Turtles can take many forms in dreams. From the land turtle through to the sea turtle. Before I analyze the dream about a turtle, it is important that you know more about this creature. Its scientific name is Testudines; phylum is Chordata, and its highest classification is Testudinata. Turtles are reptiles which use their hard shells to protect themselves from predators. They are among the most primitive and oldest groups of reptiles which have evolved for over millions of years. They are found all over the world, and it is rather exciting to have such a dream. Spiritually speaking, the turtle is connected to self-defense and predators. The message, as I mentioned on the animal totem section of my website is that you are inclined to draw into your shell at the sign of problems. The dream is alerting you to understand the constraints and take on problems and challenges.
Is a turtle in a dream positive?
Yes, I will give you a brief overview if you have a dream where you see a turtle, it denotes that, you are going to experience great joy and a positive feeling full of peace of mind due to something that has occurred in your life in the recent past or present. While in this state of high spirit, it could be ideal to resolve some of the tough issues you might be encountering in life while working on your present project which will automatically succeed.
Turtles, in dreams, can represent how you are moving in life or owning your power and keeping things in balance. When it appears, note the speed at which it is moving, from that, ask yourself how slow or fast you are moving through a particular situation in life. Why is the turtle moving at a “slow” pace? Is it because it is in danger? The timing of a particular action or decision in life will make the difference between whether it will work out or not. The turtle could appear in your dream to remind you that, you don’t need to be afraid of anything; moving forward even if it means in it takes time - as long as you reach your goal. Every dream we have is different and it is important to pay attention to all the details. It can suggest that you might be better off moving slowly in a particular situation than rushing through and making mistakes in the process as that can mean the difference between negative and positive results.
What do the different types of turtles mean in your dream?
The type of turtle is important. Kemp turtles are brown and yellow they are around 30 inches long. Spiritually this turtle is associated with a deep need to explore life as they often wonder about the sea. Leatherbacks are large, and can weigh up to 2,000 pounds. The paradox of this dream indicates that people will feel grace, happiness and have a long life. If you dream of this type of turtle then good things are soon to happen. Unfortunately, when I was researching this dream meaning I was sad to learn there are only 5,000 leatherbacks in the seas today as fishing methods have eliminated them over time. Sea turtles are from smaller species found in freshwater marshes and every sea turtle is unique. We all know the green sea turtle and they are popular due to snorkelers and divers going out to see them in the waters of the Caribbean. They eat shellfish and crabs. In order to understand the dream meaning around the “types” of sea turtles, it is important to review what these actually mean. To see a nomadic leatherback turtle in the dream indicates a false person, due to their rubbery skin. A sea turtle in the ocean indicates your emotions will be up and down due to taking on challenges and a land turtle in a dream can suggest balancing your life and slow progression.
What does it mean to dream of turtles in your house?
Turtles in your house during the dream are messages that you may be experiencing a transformation in life. If we look at how we connect with our own hope this can indicate changes in your home life. Seeing many turtles in your house connect with our primitive orientation about surviving in life. Since turtles are water dwellers, the meaning in your home can suggest that you need the power to protect others.
What’s the dream interpretation of a sea turtle?
I have mentioned quite a bit above to give you a good picture of this dream meaning. A dream about a turtle can represent fertility, wisdom, shelter, motherhood, loyalty, slow but inevitable progress, and spiritual development. To dream of a sea turtle represents equal things. Yet, the sea turtle also represents withdrawn behavior, anxiety, and relaxation. If you dream of killing a sea turtle, this can imply that you could be feeling anxious. Do you feel you need relaxation?
What is the symbol of a turtle dream mean?
As I have already mentioned, symbolically, turtles are seen as symbols of strength, stability, and endurance, due to the shell of the turtle. A turtle is also seen as a symbol of good luck in some Native American cultures. Turtles were also sacred creatures in many ancient cultures and were often associated with the moon. Spiritually, turtles swimming in dreams symbolizes cleansing, purification, and a new beginning. Turtles are viewed as powerful creatures because of their strength, endurance, and stability, and the color green symbolizes growth, fertility, and new life. Combining these symbols can represent the idea of taking a journey into the unknown and emerging victorious.
What does feeding turtles in a dream indicate?
To feed turtles in your dream could symbolize caring for yourself emotionally. Caring for ourselves takes time but is important. It is important to express your emotions in a healthy way after having this dream. Many people tell me to take care of myself all the time, you may want to journal, speak with a friend, spend time with family or just watch that movie on Netflix for some “me” time.
The dream is calling you to find an outlet for your emotions to prevent them from building up and becoming overwhelming. Physical health is another way to take care of your emotions. Exercise regularly, eat a balanced diet, and get enough sleep. Our minds are better able to cope with stress and emotions when our body is healthy. It's also important to find activities that make you happy and help you relax. This could include reading, listening to music, or spending time in nature. When you have a healthy outlet for your emotions, you’ll be better able to cope with the ups and downs of life. This dream can be an expression of insecurity or vulnerability. Your dream's specific details (e.g. what you fed the turtles, how you felt about them, etc.) may also provide some more clues to the dream.

This dream is calling your attention to areas of your life that you may be neglecting, also a sign of not rushing into decisions. The turtle is primeval and sympathetic in regard to an animal totem.
What does it mean to dream of being chased by a turtle?
Being chased by a turtle is an interesting dream as the pace of a turtle is so slow and steady. I can only imagine that in your dream the turtle was fast-moving and if this is the case you are postponing something important. Such a dream represents the fact that you’re avoiding a specific person in your waking life. To dream of being chased by multiple turtles indicates that you will encounter an emotionally damaged person who hides behind an emotionless facade. They don’t let anyone inside. Dreaming of running away from a turtle indicates you recently earned your wealth in an unexpected way. This dream can be symbolic in that you should let the person near you or run away. To be chased by a sea turtle in your dream also implies to your need to get away from people. The sea turtle is connected to our emotions, try not to underestimate people. Just like the turtle is being underestimated because of their slow pace. Yet, everyone forgets that this creature is untouchable due to the protective shell. This dream can imply focusing on other people’s flaws, and not listening to your own qualities or understanding your problems.
As I have already said, when we dream of being chased, we are usually running away from something in our lives. Oftentimes, we avoid situations, people, emotions, or memories. A hidden aspect of ourselves might also be represented by others. It may represent some primal instinct or fear surfacing in your dream if you are being chased by an animal.
An animal could also represent something stalking or hunting you in your waking life. Think about what this turtle represents to you in your life if you are being chased by more than one. Your repressed feelings could be embodied in them. The turtle could also represent someone who causes you stress or anxiety in your waking life. In your dream, losing the person who is chasing you may symbolize overcoming your fears and obstacles in life.
Another possibility is that you are successfully avoiding a situation or person in your life. An unresolved issue or a fear may be represented by the person chasing you. In some situations in your life, it could also mean that you are feeling trapped or helpless. Take a moment to consider what the chase might mean to you in your own life, and what it might represent to you. The turtle may symbolize your own feelings of being overwhelmed or overpowered or could represent your own fear of change or insecurity about the future.

To see an injured turtle in your dream means you’re about to face some difficulties while doing the right thing. However, your dream predicts, that if you overcome these difficulties.

Turtles are kept as pets but are hard work. I have had many turtles over the years. In ancient dream lore, to keep a turtle as a pet reflects financial benefits from your latest efforts at work. This dream can imply that you have tried to implement your ideas and make them profitable. Someone will notice your potential soon if you bought a turtle from a pet store. After I reviewed some older dream books it indicates financial bliss will be yours shortly. This could be as a result of the completion of a project which you have been working on for a very long time, and it is profitable. If you kept the turtle in a cage it can signify (spiritually) that you will be the beneficiary of an inheritance from a relative, or you could win a game. Whatever brings you the financial breakthrough could be varied, but the main point is that you are going to enjoy the financial benefits. When it happens, invest it wisely for a rainy day in the future.
Turtles are generally regarded as symbols of good luck, longevity, and wisdom. These things could be symbolized by dreaming of a pet turtle. A dream's specific details (such as how you felt about the turtle, what it was doing, etc.) can provide additional insight into its meaning based on your specific situation.

This dream can indicate that you are feeling withdrawn. The turtle shell I feel is like a cage you have created for your own safety. Allow yourself to walk into the unknown.
Having looked at a more ancient meaning, an empty turtle shell in your dream symbolizes protection and shelter against the world and your inner thoughts. In the case at some point you see a turtle hiding in the shell, then it means that you are sheltering yourself from life realities. This dream occurs when we are feeling that we are not ready for what is happening around us. And, when we are better off staying in our own comfort zone. An empty turtle shell is an indication of putting forward a hard exterior, which is making you feel withdrawn. In your dream, if you see a turtle walking minus the shell, it implies that you have bared your inner self and thoughts of those around you. Do you have feelings of vulnerability if you are open to others? If the empty shell you are observing in your dream is broken, it is a sign that there is a breakdown of trust between you and those around you.
