Jean Sheehan’s Mystery School

Animal Wisdom

Hello super soul.


I am always asked about the meaning of animals and what the spiritual meaning of animals.


The ancient Mystery Schools would teach that animals bring sacred messages and are symbols or wisdom as well as you. In fact Mayan, Lemurian, Medieval and Egypt Mystery Schools taught shape shifting in to animals so that humans would understand true self empowerment and the codes of creation and consciousness.


I share insights to some of the magnificent animals we have in the world today, past and possibly future. You may ask why don’t I write a book about it, as so many people have. It is not aligned with me to do so as Mystery School teaching is so  much more than this. And those that have attended my Millennium Modality® – Module VIII – Animal Medical Intuition can agree on this statement.


Enjoy and remember who you are. Maybe your Animal Spirit is actually you.

Absolute love
