“Steady as she goes!” You are making slow but definite progress towards your goals.-Snail
If Snail has slimed across your path;
Alternatively, this mollusk is letting you know that any pace is a good pace and sometimes what seems like forever is just a small moment of time. Release your beliefs of not getting things done on time. Trust your process and simply stay present and chug along. No sense in causing yourself any more stress.
Snail is also letting you know that your time needs to be used wisely. However, you also have to realize that you have time for everything. Divide your priorities and set up block of time in each day so that there is steady progress in all of your projects. The whole process is a simple exercise in time management. Stay in the present and all things will be accomplished.
If Snail is your Animal Totem;
You tend to be a creature of habit and have a great deal of of patience. You know how to take things as they come. More often than not you prefer to be alone, are not very social, and sometimes very timid as well. You are constantly having to balance protection with trust (not easy) and often never show your true self to the world. Your feelings are generally at the forefront of most of your decisions and actions. A person with this totem also needs to be careful about hiding in their shell. They need to make a point of dealing with their emotional issues or they could withdraw permanently.
You have a strong work ethic and will often put in much longer hours than everyone else, however, you do tend to work very slowly and meditatively. Everything you do is very well done and maintains a high standard of excellence. You have a tendency to rely on yourself to get the job done.
People with this mollusk as their totem are very deliberate people. Once they set a goal to achieve there is no diverting them from their path.
