Measure your time on personal projects generously at the moment.
-Inch Worm

If Inch Worm has inched into your life;

You are being reminded to measure twice and cut once. Take careful note of what you are trying to create right now and make sure that the path is clear in front of you before moving ahead. Be clear of your purpose behind this move forward and know that the transformation you are seeking is right for you. Just take it in smaller steps rather than one fell swoop. Progress is good at a much slower pace right now.

Alternatively you are being asked if you have been inching toward a personal change or transformation without making your intentions or goals clear to yourself. Know where you want to go and you will get there.

If Inch Worm is your personal Animal Totem;

You work well in trades such as cabinet making, construction and architecture. These are all jobs where spatial ingenuity, mathematics, and measuring play huge roles in the ability to get the job done right. You have a gift for slow and steady progress in everything you do and seem to make personal transformations and changes with ease. You also have a strong spiritual connection with gardens and gardening and are drawn to open green leafy spaces. If your work involves construction and design of any sort most of your designs will incorporate modern ecological breakthroughs that give us new and innovative ergonomic designs.

If Inch Worm has come into your dreams;

It symbolizes the little things that can be beneficial for your growth and well-being. It is important to pay attention to the minor details and not to overlook certain things.

  • I used to open the nettle to see the Caterpillar as the Gardner’s used to slice the nettles down, and save worms if they were drowning.
    Recently I’ve seen an eagle,fish,squirrel and lived with a malfestation. I’ve come to find help please

  • Thank you. An inch worm crossed my path and I took note. Even wrote a small piece about it. My mother died recently. We didn’t really get on. And I don’t have much to do with the family–different views and values and ways of seeing the world. I am nervous about ‘what comes next’. I am in poor health and like to be independent, but know we are all co-dependant in a way…. Your advice has helped me to choose not jump into something before right timing…I can wait. I am good at pacing. I do like a garden and have spent the morning in our garden: Northcote Community Gardens. It is sunny today in Melbourne Australia and the garden is looking grand. I will be checking out your site more often. Especially when the signs are there. d.

  • I really don’t know what an inchworm is, and have not dreamt about worms. However, I have lived on my property for 30 years, I don’t garden, have very little grass. Yesterday, I saw dozens of earthworms, crawling on the walkway, and the top of the ground. I have several cats, and none of the cats showed any interest in the worms. I’m always looking for signs, but have no idea if this means anything. Signed, In dire need of a break, any break.

    • I live in a basement apartment with a concrete breezeway. In hot weather, sometime in the evening, literally hundreds of earthworms appear in the breezeway and crawl all over. A few get under my door and show up in my kitchen and bathroom. They don’t seem to be harmful but I’m not excited about having them living with me. In the morning, there is no sign of them in the breezeway…I don’t know where they go. How can I prevent therm from getting into my apartment? 🙁

  • I saw an inchworm on a photo of my son today..i see alot of meaning behind this.

  • Good morning! Wondering if you could speak to the significance of caterpillar as a spirit guide. I had a very vivid visit from caterpillar in my dreams last night. Your page has always been my “go to” for insight on my spirit guide meetings and I thank you for your time and energy in imparting this wisdom to all of us who seek it. Namaste!

  • This message rings true from inchworm. I was meeting with my shaman today to get guidance. After taking a deep dive, I reached for my journal. An inchworm was on it!

  • I was looking for the totem/animal medicine of a red garden worm, but his is powerful for me now. Thank you!

    I am writing also to let you know there is a typo above. You wrote:
    Take careful not of what you are trying to create right now and make sure that the path is clear in front of you before moving ahead.

    I think you meant careful ‘note’. Not ‘not’. Measure twice!!
