Turkey Meaning and Messages

In this case, Turkey symbolism is a good omen. Thus it indicates that great gifts are on their way to you. However, you must also understand that this bird, like the Octopus, is always a symbol of sacrifice for renewal. In other words, this spirit animal reminds you that you have to let go of something for new things to arrive. Therefore the Turkey meaning tells you that generosity will open the doors to growth and rebirth.

Alternatively, Turkey symbolism also reminds you that nothing is an endless resource.  Therefore, you must honor and nurture the abundant supplies on offer. Furthermore, you must be sure that you cultivate and care for those renewable resources that benefit your life. Regardless of your circumstances, now is the time to listen to your higher vision. After all, this is the best way to achieve your goals, whether they are spiritual, physical, mental, or emotional.

Turkey Totem, Spirit Animal

People with Turkey totem tend to be the “abundance generator” for their friends, family, and community. In other words, like the Buffalo and the Angelfish, they have a gift for attracting all the bounty of the universe available to them. Plus, they are willing to share. Folks with this spirit animal totem will often take care of the needs of others before they meet their own needs simply because all life is sacred to them.

Additionally, these people easily translate their life experiences into growth and understanding. Moreover, they recognize that what they do for others they also do for themselves.

Turkey Dream Interpretation

When you have a Turkey dream, it may signify an abundant increase in business. Thus, for the farmer, it would symbolize bumper crops for which they will be well-paid. Conversely, this type of vision can also mean that you are being foolish, and therefore not thinking clearly. If you see these birds dressed for the market, it indicates an improvement in your financial affairs.

Alternatively, to dream that you are eating this bird indicates that a joyful occasion is approaching. Thus it may represent a holiday feast. To see these birds flying symbolizes a rapid transition from financial uncertainty to abundance and social position.

To dream that you are hunting or shooting this bird means that you are acquiring your riches dishonestly.

  1. I was on top of a hill getting ready to get into my car. It was a beautiful full moon night…this was just recently. I was looking at the moon shimmering over the lake when I heard a trotting sound. I wasn’t frightened. I just listened and then I saw something trotting past me. First I thought it was a coyote but realized it was a turkey. I just said “Wow”. I was totally blown away by it. Both the moon, the water and the turkey trotting by, it seemed magical.

  2. I had a dream that there was a turkey cooked on a table and I took a leg and pulled off meats to feed 6 small dogs that were jumping up at me and barking, but then I was accused of eating the turkey and chased out of the house by some angry men! I then ran into the arms of a soldier who was with an oriental style king and the king said he would protect and adopt me and then he glowed gold and I woke up. I wonder the meaning of this.

  3. Thank you for this page. I found it searching because we live in a fairly populated village, and saw FIFTEEN (!!!) wild turkeys just strolling through the neighbourhood this morning.

  4. I dreamt of a beautiful turkey, it came to me and showed me it had a broken wing and I was frantically looking for a vet to help it.
    What could that mean

  5. I dreamt i saw a turkey tied up on a leash and a man was pulling it into his home. I called 9-1-1 in my dream to report the rough manner and what seemed weird to me. I was calmly talking to the 9-1-1 operator describing the scene and some other things i observed in my dream. Any ideas what that could mean? Thanks!

  6. My grandmother lives in a wooded area suburbs of NJ. There’s a family of turkeys always hanging around in the morning in her backyard. Recently , there’s one turkey that has repeatedly been coming right up to the back door & greeting my grandmother and her cat. He fans out completely and starts talking while my grandmother and her cat stand on the other side of the glass watching (in amazement ). Yesterday the turkey came again , fanning out and talking as usual , but this time he brought with him a glove and left it there @ the back door. How bizarre is this? I feel like there must be a higher meaning , but maybe I’m just reaching haha

    1. You are probably aware that there is an increasing number of these kinds of stories. The animal kingdom has been waiting for us to wake up and acknowledge them and commune with them. This turkey was expressing gratitude to your grandmother for simply allowing them to be there and respecting them. The glove was a “ gift”. The animal kingdom has always had wisdom, and the ability to commune with us. It is US who are finally waking up, not them. God bless your grandmother for her kind heart. Turkey may be her spirit totem.

  7. 6 wild turkeys appeared at my house with the “leader” walking boldly to my glass back door in spite of my large dog barking and growling. I had a moment of eye contact with the “leader”. They walked all around my large property twice then flew over the wall to my neighbor. They came back the next morning and were at my front door stoop. With the “leader” again in front almost to my door.
    I was enchanted and transfixed and deeply moved by the experience.

  8. I’m slowly coming out of a period of un-wellness and depression, but have started walking in the mornings. I live in Florida, on a golf course that has been allowed to slowly go back to nature, and it has become something of a wild-life sanctuary. Today, 6/18/18, happens to be my birthday, and I received a wonderful gift this morning – a mother turkey and 7 babies! What a wonderful birthday gift from the Universe, so grateful to be feeling better and on the road to health. Thank you, Mother Turkey, for your uplifting presence, thank you for sharing your babies with me. Grant that I may find a way to share your goodwill with others today.

    1. Wow… I too am slowly emerging out of a place of darkness and poor health. I too am in FL. I recently moved into a new home and last week when I walked out my front door, I had a Mother Turkey with her 7 babies, sitting in my yard. They have blessed me with their presence every day since. I think we both need to see the meaning of the number 7 as well.
      Happy Belated Birthday and wishing you love, light, and happiness in the year ahead

  9. I was sitting outside having my coffee as I do every morning and this Turkey came out of nowhere it scared me so I got up and went to the front of the house and say down to have my coffee. I was looking in my phone and looked up there was the same turkey. I took a picture and went to the back again. I sat down and the turkey appeared again that is when I asked him what are you trying to tell me? I went in the house and looked it up and realized it was a good thing….smile

  10. Currently I live in the middle of the forest, that I’ve been coming to since I was a little girl. This morning, I was driving to the nearest station which is at least 12 miles away. I’ve had a headache all morning and have been really stressed out lately. I’m in serious need of a mental break. While I’m driving, all of the sudden I see large birds in the middle of the road. Puzzled, I couldn’t believe my eyes!! There was a flock of Turkey’s walking around in the middle of the road. About 12, flew to the side of the road, 1 took his time as I was able to stop before there was a disaster. By the time I was really close to the one, he jumped up and flew to the others. I couldn’t believe what I saw. It was awesome and made me excited!! As I carried on down the road, on my way back, the Turkey’s we’re on the side and I stopped and got a picture. Came home and read this!! I love it when things like this happen!!

  11. I lost my keys to my apartment building, door, mailbox, and gym in the frigid MN snow on a blustery dark night. I live in an apartment building in a large city on a very busy street so the fear was that anyone else could find them. It would be extremely expensive to replace everything that would need to be replaced for the safety of everyone in the building.
    I prayed. I meditated. I envisioned those keys in the palm of my right hand. I searched, shoveled, used a metal detector, got family members involved to help look.
    For seven days…. no success.
    Then, on Valentine’s Day, I went out our front lobby, and there in our small patch of grass and bushes separating the busy street from the front door, was a turkey. A colorful wild turkey had some how made its way into the heart of the city and was gobbling around the front yard like it owned the place.
    It was surreal. A feeling of abundance and gratefulness came over me. And somehow, I knew it would be a magical day.
    I borrowed a rake from dad. I went to the exact spot I’d seen the Turkey and began scraping the rake through the snow and ice.
    Within three minutes…. I mean less than five scrapes of the rake tongs… there were my keys.

    1. Hi! I had the weirdest dream in the morning: I saw red Turkey legs sticking out of my belly. I was worried but at the same time I thought: – “Well, I knew I was right that my stomach pain and weight gain wasn’t imaginary. I knew I had something in my belly.” I told my man that I had been right. When I looked down at my belly again the stomach had opened up and the turkey could walk out..!
      I told my man: – “Ok, you need to take me to the hospital (to sow the hole in the stomach). Hurry, hurry! (but still there was a calmness to the situation and that this was kind of normal). !

  12. I recently had a dream n it was exactly like a clone of wat u just said u saw n your yard tat is so crazy n weird . Wow ,I just thought I should share tat with u have a blessed day.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 😛 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.

    1. Recently a flock of turkeys 2 adults & 13 chicks have been visiting and walking around my yard
      Today is the 3rd time this summer they have done this I love to see them all walking together

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

    Any thoughts…
