The Turkey, a noble creature … or not?November 27th, 2008 by Dan Bodenstein
The turkey is usually associated with silliness, and in some cases stupidity. But that could not be further from the truth. The turkey is a symbol of “shared blessings” and the harvest. The turkey is referred to as the “Earth Eagle”, and is linked to many Native American myths and legends. The turkey is very adaptable, and although once a threatened species, have regained their numbers in the wild.
If the turkey has come to you as a totem, it may be indicating a bountiful harvest. A harvest may not reflect an actual farm harvest, but it could mean something such as a harvest of wealth, or a harvest of family. Thanksgiving is the time for family togetherness, maybe the turkey is responsible for that.
This Thanksgiving, take a moment to thank the one participant that sacrificed the most for your day, the turkey. You may be surprised at the results yo may earn on a spiritual level.
