Owl Energy & Reiki


Article by Justine Melton

After learning Reiki I noticed that the Universe was starting to communicate with me in new and amazing ways. One of these ways was by sending owls to me at certain times. Owls can mean many things to different people but to me The Universe was always sending them as a warning that someone or a group of people in my life were being deceitful and trying to camouflage their true intentions.

The owl energy aides in giving you the ability to see through the truth in any situation and is a great protector to those it chooses to partner with. I absolutely love the owl’s energy and have incorporated it into Reiki in many different ways. Reiki and Owl energy together can have dramatically increase your ability to immediately know the truth of any situation no matter what you are being told.

The Owl Represents:

• Truth
• Protection
• Eyes that see through the darkness
• Being able to cut through any shadow
• Wisdom
• Divine intervention
• Heightened Intuitive Abilities
• Shattered Illusions
• Ability to see what is hidden to most
• Ability to see the true state of someone’s mind
• Breaking of Masks
• Death/Change/Life Transition

To many ancient people Owls symbolized Death. While it is possible that an owl is giving you a sign of someone about to pass away, almost always the Death the Owl represents is just a big change/positive transition in your life. The energy is representing the death of an old state and the transition to a new more positive state. Owls are never to be feared and can be a great partner with Reiki.

Ways to incorporate Owls into Reiki:

  • If you notice that you routinely see owls in a certain area try a self-reiki session at that location. Be open to any messages you feel that you receive.
  • If doing self-reiki at home put on some soft, relaxing music that incorporates nature sounds with owls. You do not need to spend any money to do this. Simply do an online search for owl sounds or look it up on youtube. This will help you to connect with the owl energy during your Reiki session.
  • Set an intention at the beginning of your Reiki session that owl energy comes into your life and aides you with whatever issue you are having. You can ask for it to help you with a specific situation or ask for help in the general sense. Stay open to any messages you receive.
  • Meditate with Reiki and the owl energy. If this is the easiest way for you to connect stay tuned because I will be sharing a Reiki Owl Meditation soon. (later edit: here’s the Reiki Owl Meditation)

Owl Energy and Reiki

  • Wear jewelry that pictures an owl. Even better infuse the piece with Reiki by making a power or master symbol over it. When Owls first came into my life I was drawn to owl jewelry or anything with owls on it. I had one owl necklace that I loved. It helped me feel safe and protected. One day I got the message that I had transitioned to a different level and no longer needed the owl energy the way I had before. I still wanted to wear my owl necklace often even though I was being guided to put it away or give it to another. I was not yet ready to part with it and one day without any explanation it simply fell off my neck and vanished. I remember putting it on in the morning but never felt it fall off during the day. The necklace had moved on to help another. ☺

Owls can offer so much in helping to breakthrough dark situations. Combined with Reiki they offer a very powerful energy. Welcome them in with open arms and see how they may help you. Sending love and light your way!

  1. Hi Ananya.

    Thank you for your kind words! I love hearing when different pieces help people.

    Sending love your way 🙂

  2. Hey Justine

    I love this article of yours. Its weird because I saw an owl stare at me a few days back and then a discussion on the same that very evening.

    I guess i need to connect with the energy NOW

    Thank you for the article

    Love and Light 🙂

  3. Owls are not only a representation of the Death. They have the bad reputation to be related to Vampires. Owls do not like to drink water like any bird, they suck the blood of their victims.
    “The strix, a nocturnal bird that fed on human flesh and blood is mentioned in Roman tales. The Romanian word for vampires, strigoi, is derived from the word.”

  4. Oh Justine… I know exactly what you’re talking about. I absolutely love Owl’s energy. I’ve one… well two actually, as guides for many years now. One speaks to me and the other just fly’s around and shows me things. They come and go although I always know they are there if I need them. The one that speaks showed up this morning and the other came in this afternoon right before this article popped up on FB. I’ve just come out of the dark once again… thank you for this wonderful message. 🙂 And thank you to my guides as well.

    In Love & Light Always,

  5. I work with very young to older children with severe disabilities, one of them had owls around her I wondered if it meant she embodied owl medicine and or was being constantly protected. Also many physical elements plus energy elements surrounded her.

  6. Very interesting article, I was wondering what crows represent as since doing my reiki 1 i see them every day and they come really close there’s even 3 that sit on the lamp post outside my window at work , I find myself drawn towards them!!

  7. Thank you for this article. My entire life is in transition and I’ve seen owls and wondered what the meaning was for me. I’m excited to try your Reiki Owl Meditation!
