Welcome

Cassandra - Turtle Medicine

The turtle is a totem animal in Native American culture.  The grandmothers and grandfathers spoke of the turtle as a symbol of mother earth and female strength. The turtle was respected for its qualities of nurturance, protection, patience, perseverance, tenacity, self-reliance, groundedness, and wisdom.  The turtle teaches us that we blossom in our own time and that we must go within to find the answers that we seek.

Turtle MedicineAligning yourself with the medicine of the turtle, brings you into harmony with your own natural rhythms, intuitive knowledge, and inner wisdom. Mother turtle says, “There is no time, only your process of unfoldment. I will walk with you on your journey.” Mother turtle never tells us what to do. She empowers us to discover the path of right action for ourselves, by teaching us to go within and listen to the wise counsel of our hearts. Mother turtle trusts in her own wisdom and she trusts in the wisdom that lies within all. She brings us back to ourselves when we have lost our way. She reminds us gently, “You need nothing but that which is within you.”

Mother turtle is a shaman of birth. She nurtures, protects, and guides a woman back to herself as she moves through her birth process. She walks her walk in the Tao and she helps each woman to walk her own walk in the Tao. She trusts that each woman can find her own way. She is a companion on the journey.

I hold Mother turtle as my totem and spirit guide, in supporting women during childbirth. I bring turtle medicine to the birth process, to help you find your way to give birth.
