Spiritual Meaning of the Worm

Worms serve as a powerful reminder to renew and regenerate, discarding the old or regenerating what has been taken away or damaged. They teach us to enrich our sacred ground and persevere through the squirming power of change, shifting between the old and the new as we crawl steadily toward our inevitable transformation.

Earthworms show us that even the smallest creatures can make significant contributions to the cycle of life, and we too can make a difference. March teaches us to embody the stamina and endurance of the earthworm, allowing us to navigate through the pull of winter and the allure of spring, with the knowledge that life is about to burst forth.

Our modern society has made us desensitized to the basic processes of life, often considering them repugnant or gross. However, worms work tirelessly underground and above the surface, moving through the soil and contributing to a new mix of fertility.
