Animal Symbolism Handout

Article by Justine Melton, Reiki Rays

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.
