Additional Associations for Turkey:


  • I saw two turkey Spirits on the way back home after our thanksgiving dinner from Catholic Church year end gathering feast. I don’t what it means hopefully is a blessing.

  • For the past month or so , while driving into work . A wild turkey has been appearing on a 4 lane highway where I drive. Today it was in my lane and i had to slow down and move around her /him.

    Fish and game warden was on the side of the busy highway

    Since I have seen this sign , I looked up what it meant. So I am not going to take it for granted.

  • I meditated earlier in the day and asked for my spirit animal. 3 hrs later I left to visit my mother in a town in CT…..no forest..only homes tight together. In the parking lot a wild turkey greeted me at my car and we stared at each other for a moment. It was that point I realized this was my spirit animal.

  • I looked out and saw a bush t urkey fly over the fence and walk around the gaeden(which is actually green ground cover)
    another turkey joined and th two walked around for awhile then flew up and sat together on another fence for a period of time.
    I have lived here since 2009 and ha e never seen this.It was a pleasant surprise..and for me a spiritual moment.

  • 😛 Walked outside earlier to find 6 wild turkeys on my roof and a 7th one on my deck seemly acting as a look out. I was amazed as this has never happened at this house even though there is ample wild life around. We usually get geese, rabbits and deer coming into our yard. This has to be symbolic of something.

  • The number 7 represents spirituality. Turkey is give away. Giving of your life to serve a higher purpose. I would say the experience was simple about letting everyone one he achieved what he was to accomplish in his life for the love of his loved ones.

  • I lost one of my best friends in the last week. He was a healer — a general surgeon — and a Renaissance man: humble, a deep love of knowledge, his family, his community. He and his wife were stewards of the land they lived on to: beekeepers, gardeners, lovers of nature. This morning while reflecting on the blessing of Eric in my life, seven wild turkeys hopped a fence and are now eating in our backyard. It’s very moving. I’d love to hear your take on this beauty happening.

  • I live in urban Overland Park Kansas, and walked out to find a Turkey on the front walkway of my suburban apartment. I never have been aware of a turkey around. We do have wildlife as a golf course is across the way.

    My family is very spiritual in our Native American Heritage and my spirit animal is Hawk.
