  While weeding the garden this morning, I came upon some of these little creatures. Admittedly, I wasn't too happy to see them, but I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by their significance.

The silvery trails slugs leave behind represents sacred writings and spiritual messages. There is an ethereal quality about slugs...and because of their slick coating...stuff just slides right off of them. It's therefore a totem for letting go of the past, bad habits, our stories, the roles and relationships that have ceased being useful. Slug can teach us how to experience the simple freedom that accompanies detachment. To truly not give a shit can be a liberating experience!

Slugs are almost pure muscle and is an omen of great (sometimes hidden) strength. A reminder to create a strong body for yourself. As a matter of fact, slug represents the importance of having a good balance between the physical, emotional, and mental bodies.

If you are seeing slugs, as I have been, examine the following questions and see if they apply:

Ask: Have you been procrastinating on taking that first step toward the changes you know you need to make?

Ask: Have you lost yourself in your roles in the lives of others, forgetting you are playing a starring role in your own life?

Ask: Are you afraid to shine? To express your real talents?

Ask: Are you ignoring your intuition?

Ask: Are you trying to do too much too soon?


  1. Thank you for making this so much clearer. The questions in particular ring so true. Much love x

  2. I saw a slug 🐌 tonight in the kitchen. At first I was mortified, I still am, and will be. I carefully picked it up with a napkin, tossed it in the backyard. After sanitizing the shit out of my kitchen Im doing my best to see it as a sign that I need to stop putting shit off and hurry up, to quit moving like a slug, rather than think I’m going to get rat 🐀 lung disease. Then I saw your blog, and it reinforced my belief in focusing on the positive rather than the negative as that stops serving me after being practical and taking necessary measures. Thank you for the unique blog.

    1. So purely put. Slow down your moving to fast, da da da da I don't know the words but I think you know the song. Well done for regonising that. ♥️

  3. I woke up today at a time I shouldn't of went back to sleep and when I opened my eyes there was this big dinasore slug above my head (its still there) I'd have to stand on the bedbed to remove it, 😂 so I decided to Google my old newbie and I got the fright of my lifelife, it told me that some snails can have 14,000 teeth some them do and that some can bite too. 😂 So I haven't removed him yet.the strange thing is that he doesn't have any slime behind or before him, so I'm my opinion he was planted there. 😂 My kids love to it's been the highlight of the days conversation. It looks like an old poops 💩 seriously like a dinasore slug, so old he has no slime, my son Paul noticed a long cobweb string handing from his back so we have named him spider slug. 😂 I just want to say thank you for your lovely explanation of the slug, not my slug but I like how you put it, because I'm going through a big transformation in my life at the moment, for the first timetime a nice thank you again you just lifted my life. 🙏 Bless you my man or woman. Like my slug it could be male of female, I shouldn't presume. It might drop a lot of unexpected slug slime on me when I'm sleeping or if I go to remove him, feck he might even bite me. 🙃 😂 Thanks again. Claire
