The Turkey, a symbol of abundance

The Turkey has traditionally been associated with the spirit of giving and abundance, especially in North America. In the modern American culture, the Turkey is an important part of Thanksgiving Day.

In the traditional Native American culture, some tribes used to give turkeys as giveaway presents to other tribes.

The spirit of the Turkey and the importance of honoring feminine energies

Because the turkey is closely associated with the spirit of the Earth, it is also symbolic of feminine energies at work in our lives. This animal has been revered in ancient traditions as a symbol of fertility and abundance.

I got home and My Husband said look out the window and there was 5 turkeys,Gobble gobble gobbling away!!! It Amazed Me Once again God showed me His Wonders!! I never thought to look up the prophetic meaning of wild turkeys , My Husband did and so I looked it up and it came to pass as Abundance and to be content in what you have. I Love that!!!!

    My 3 year old son had been in and out of the hospital all weekend. I was thinking about his health as I was driving down the interstate when a turkey flew across my car! Imagine s turkey flying across 10 lanes of traffic! I’m doing more research as to find out the connection.

    I got to work and a wild turkey wandered near my car and the building, As i moved thru the building it walked around the perimeter looking in the windows at me, following me and watching me the whole time. Strangest thing. Never encountered a wild turkey before. It appeared to be a female. I have been contemplating starting a family and also, moving across the country. I am highly spiritual and believe this was a good sign, as it brought warmth to my heart. Maybe I am on the right path ?

      Sweet! Best wishes your way! 😀

    We are building a new home and went by to see the progress on the footings and stem wall. A female wild turkey was walking around in the interior house stem walls for a good five minutes then hopped out and walked across the street into the nearby woods. Made us feel like she certainly is blessing this house and our new community!

    I have had wild turkeys cross my path a few times a week for the past month also finding their feathers and had a dream about a wild turkey. Definitely looking into the message. Also from the frequency of having them cross so closely in front of me when I am walking or in Kabota I am guessing wild turkey is one of my totems.

    I saw a group of turkeys hanging out in peoples yards while I was on a walk the other day. I saw this group of turkeys twice while on my walk in two diffrent parts of the neighborhood. I knew it was the same group because one of the turkeys was albino. It felt like a good omen.

    I’ve lived in my northern CA suburban home for 17 years.  I’ve never seen a turkey in my neighborhood.  Yesterday was my birthday and for the 1st time ever, a pair of toms were standing in my driveway.  Quite an unexpected, but happy surprise.

    I live in Florida and have a home on a canal that abuts a wildlife preserve.  I have been here for almost 12 years. On Sunday mornings, I like to sit on my lanai with my coffee and look at the scenery.  Never in all these years have I seen wild turkeys here.  But for the past two Sundays I have.  Last week I suddenly saw two turkeys walk up from the canal on the other side.  Today I saw 3 turkeys walking on the other side of the canal.  I am not quite sure what it means but it is a very pleasant feeling.  I have been going through great challenges for the last 8 years and things are starting to calm down now so it is a very comforting sign to see the turkeys.

    As I was driving home today I was thinking to myself that I’m just not where I thought I’d be in my life by now; marriage, a family, more success in my business, financial flexibility, etc. As soon as I turn onto my street I see 21 wild turkeys cruisin’ through my neighbors front yard. I look up the symbolism and read about abundance, fertility, satisfaction, and more. What could this possibly mean? A symbol of something, no doubt.

    Dear friends who care about the animal messages. I was away from home working. I had big anxiety from a setback in a s spiritual trip I was working on. There was friend’s support yet I could not really take it in. The wild turkeys arrived and I felt a great easing in my body. I knew they were a gift. Their call in the woods was also a balm to my pain. The next day I was more able to see the love and good people in my life and ;et it in. The mind goes so fast to places of lack and the turkey medicine eases that in such a wonderful way!! A bow to those beautiful birds at that frigid time. I spread ample seed and thanked them deeply.

      I am not sure were you are but the same thing just happened to us today. I have been living on this land for over 20 years and have had an occasional wild turkey pass though but today we found in excess of 25, toms and hens in our back yard. It was such a powerful experience and blessing. I am glad that when I came to this site I immediately found your posting of an experience so similar to ours.
