My Spirit Animal Is a Turtle – What’s Yours?

It’s one of my favorite weeks of the semester, one I’ve written about before.

Students are presenting their vision boards and it has been great getting to hear what their short-term and long-term goals and dreams are. One of the students thought it would be fun to throw in what her results were from having taken the “What Is My Spirit Animal (she was a butterfly).

As soon as I heard her bring it up, I knew I had to take the quiz.

So I just finished it (the quiz takes about 5-10 minutes), and here are my results:

Your Spirit Animal Is the Turtle

The turtle totem wisdom teaches us about walking our path in peace and sticking to it with determination and serenity.

Slow moving on earth, yet also incredibly fast and agile in water, those who have the turtle as totem or spirit animal may be encouraged to take a break in their busy lives and look around or within themselves for more grounded, long-lasting solutions. Traditionally, the turtle is symbolic of the way of peace, whether it’s inviting us to cultivate peace of mind or a peaceful relationship with our environment. 


Having the turtle as totem means that you have an affinity with the ancient wisdom of the earth. You are naturally tuned into the elements, land, plants, people, and animals. You carry your home on your back figuratively speaking and feel at ease wherever you are.

If you have the turtle as spirit animal, you may be inclined to base your decisions on a deliberate process of reviews and considerations. It may sometimes take you longer than most to make your move, but the results tend to be long-lasting and solid.

I know talking about my spirit animal is a little different, but there are some items that seem to describe me.

I consider myself to be a fairly deliberate decision maker, and living a peaceful life and working towards a more peaceful world are important to me. I was also a swimmer, and I was certainly faster in the water than on the land, relatively speaking.

So go ahead and take the quiz, you can probably complete it faster than I did, since I did it at a turtle’s pace.
