Animal Symbolism Handout

Article by Justine Melton

Hello Friends. Below you will find a basic animal symbolism sheet that I like to give to both clients and Reiki students. When you start to enter the Reiki world you may find that the universe starts to communicate with you in a variety of new ways. One of the most routine ways is through animal symbols.

The sheet I am sharing with you is very popular in my own group and I hope that you find it useful for your practice. It is a very basic info sheet that allows the reader to get a quick overview of animal symbolism meanings. If they notice one animal calling out to them they can then research that one particular animal further. I hand it out in Reiki 1 or to any client who shows an interest in signs/symbols from the Universe.

Reiki 1 Animal Symbols From The Universe:

♦ Bees: Time to get busy so that you can enjoy the fruits of your labor.
♦ Dove: Love, messages from above, peace
♦ Dog: Loyality, unconditional love
♦ Raven: Synchronicity, magic
♦ Cat: Set healthy boundaries, get back up and live life after a set back
♦ Butterfly: Beauty

  1. Interesting! Now you got me wondering on something connected with symbolism: what exactly do skulls symbolize? When I was younger, I associated them with death and creepy things, but through the years, and after being attuned to Reiki, I find they symbolize changes and transformation. Is it a bad thing to wear them on us in the form of jewelry, for example? I’m a rare combination of a heavy metal fan and Reiki practitioner and tend to keep those two aspects of me separately.

  2. Interesting. I had a weasel run up to me today at work. Wasn’t afraid at all. Was odd. I wonder what weasel’s signify.

    Ps. I work outdoors :p

  3. trying to download the animal reiki chart and I am prompted to subscribe. (I already am a subscriber). It then realizes this, but I still can’t download the file!

    • no worries. the handout was sent to my email. that said the website still tried to inform me that I needed to register and never said a download link would be sent to my email.

  4. Hi,
    I’m attempting to download your Animal Symbolism Handout, but when I try, it brings up a pop-up which says “This chart is available to all our newsletter subscribers. Please subscribe below (it’s free):”. I am already subscribed, but went ahead and put in my email, and clicked “Get started here”. It just takes me to a page that tells me that I’m already subscribed, but doesn’t give me any links to download the chart. I had clicked the download link from the e-mail that I received as a subscriber, so that wasn’t helpful either.

  5. Hi,

    Sorry for the confusion. Yes, the chart is sent in email, even though the page says you’re already subscribed and nothing else.

    We’ve just changed the behavior though, so subscribers can download directly now.

    Thank you!

  6. I accidentally hit and killed a baby deer on the highway the other night. I see that deer symbolize to tread lightly and take a gentle path. Wondering how all this applies.

  7. This is timely for me as i have been receiving Brother Bear in my dreams and he/she is being associated with a person i know. I have made arrangements to see my old friend but do not yet know what this is all about. Since making the arrangements i have had no dreams for a few weeks now but we will not be getting together for another 7 weeks. I can hardly wait to see what aspires.
