Seal Meaning and Messages

In this case, Seal symbolism is letting you know that it’s time to pay close attention to your imagination and insight.  In other words, Seal meaning is asking you to be aware of your thoughts and your dreams. This spirit animal teaches that a lot of what you imagine generally has a strong basis in reality, no matter how far off it may seem.

Thus Seal symbolism is bringing you a clear and distinct message that it is time for you to allow your creativity and your imagination to soar. Furthermore, like the Beaver, it is now time to follow through on your dreams.

Seal Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the Seal totem are highly imaginative and very creative. Moreover, they need activities that channel and direct their imagination and creativity. For these folks, hearing and balance are also essential. They have to learn to listen to their inner self and balance their lives to it. People with this spirit animal have dreams that are very significant and vivid.

Plus, like the Dragonfly, these visions continuously feed their creative imagination. Thus they need to stay in touch with their body’s natural rhythms. In other words, if you are hungry, eat; if you are tired, rest.

Seal Dream Interpretation

When you have a Seal dream, it refers to your playfulness and jovial disposition. Thus the vision is letting you know that you can adapt to various emotional situations. Alternatively, the dream may also be a pun. Therefore it may indicate that you need to put closure on something as in “sealing the deal.”

This sea creature in your dream can also be a sign of trust, security, or promise. Like the Brown Bear and the Beetle, it is also a symbol of integrity, which we can abuse or use as power. It depicts the emergence of the conscious life of your deepest instincts and life energies. As this animal can emerge from the water entirely and live on land, this mammal is sometimes used to represent the emergence from the womb and the pleasures or difficulties of life as a ‘land animal’ physically independent of our mother. This symbolism is especially so if it is a very young one.

  • If this were my dream, then I would look at the seal as my spiritual centers. The bath is needing to wash off your spiritual body. You have been neglecting it possibly. You couldn't walk away from your main life with all the crap/junk in it, but you are subconsciously trying to take really good care of your spiritual self.

  • I had a dream that I just randomly had a pet seal. The seal lives in a small box in the corner of the room in my house. The seal didn't really do much and would just stay in the box and not do anything. Then one day coming back from the kitchen the seal was awake and my cat scratched him. So I filled uo the bath and put him in there. I felt so bad that he had a scratch on him and that I had been neglecting him in the box so I tried to let him free into the sea. I then tried to walk away but the seal got tangled in crap/junk and was sad that I was leaving him so I put him back in the car and took him back home but made sure I took really good care of him. Strange dream lol. I wrote this as soon as I woke up as I forget my dreams very quickly usually.

    • Perhaps the seal represents your imagination, and you leaving the seal in a box means you are unable to think outside of the box anymore. You neglecting the seal might mean that you are neglecting the use of your imagination. Your cat scratching the seal might represent you being unable to communicate your imagination, since the cat is associated with communication. You trying to throw the seal into the sea is an attempt to allow your imagination to run free, and it being tangled in junk means that you doing so without expressing your imagination to others has only dulled your imagination. When you decided to take care of him, an unconscious part of you in your dream helped you come to accept the use of your imagination, whether you were consciously aware of this dream or not.

    • Fishing in this dream might represent a goal you are chasing. The seal you caught might represent the dream you desire most in your imagination. The fact that it's a baby seal means it was the beginning of the dream. You thinking you might have killed it is the fear of failure for your dream. When it became alive, it represented how you unconsciously came to understand that what you can imagine can become reality. Everything around you began in the imagination. The place you live, the device you use to read this, the furniture around you, the everyday items you use, and so on all began from someone's imagination. Like so, you must be able to imagine what you want exactly in clear details before you are able to bring it into reality. What does your dream look like, sound like, feels like, tastes like, and smells like?

  • I had a strange dream that there was a seal in a pond behind my home. It was a strangely normal dream up until that point. I had been enjoying a videogame on my day off with some online friends, stepped outside for a moment, and noticed the seal. When it hopped out of the water I was naturally in awe that it was even in my freshwater pond. But then it attacked me, and I having a hard time figuring out wthat means. Any advice?

    • You might feel your time socializing may interrupt your creative time or imaginative time, even if it's just simply for a daydream to enjoy. Nothing is wrong with socializing, but when you involve yourself with the products of others' imagination, you lose touch with your own particularly unique brand of imagination. Creativity involves the balance of socializing and solitary living. One side is to share and bounce each others' ideas off each other, while the other side is to be able to learn to produce your own original ideas without having to rely too much on copying others' ideas. Without socializing for the imagination, you are unable to explore ideas different from your own. Without solitary periods for your imagination, you end up just acting as an unoriginal copy of people's imagination around you.

  • I swam with a seal yesterday, at about 10 metres distance. The seal was watching me, I was exhilarated in the cold water and watching the seal. I didn't know how close to get. It was diving underwater and coming up again. Then watching me. Feeling in awe of the wild world.

    • I say that's a good sign that your imagination is overflowing with all kinds of inspiration, with an endless series of ideas. Keep playing with your imagination. Don't take it too seriously, and you'll find that play produces more ideas for creativity than work does.

    • This seems to represent how your imagination seems to be causing you some pain in your life. Perhaps you have a bit of an overactive imagination when it comes to your worries in life, and you are just thinking of the worst case scenario over and over. Each time you imagine it, your imagination doesn't make it worse.

      Ground yourself, as the symbolism of the rock or the Earth suggests. Realize that the fact that you can imagine something bad doesn't immediately mean it will happen. You can imagine monsters made out of chocolate coming to end the world tomorrow by drowning everyone in seas of chocolate milk, but that doesn't make it true. Not that all your worries have no basis in reality, but the fact that you can imagine it says nothing about whether it will happen or not.

      When worrying, stop to gently ask yourself, "How realistic is this, really?" and "How likely is this to happen?" "Why would I believe this worry would happen?" and "What reasons do I have to believe against it?" That, or "Even if it did happen, would that really be the worst thing in the world and you couldn't do anything about it after?"

  • Seal, Otsí:io, speaks of playfulness and imagination. I’ve been in a dark place for the past few days, and, despite having known this for almost all of my life, and having spoken it to others again and again, I forget that the surest way out of the darkness is to play and create. I got back to writing today. I’m still not sleeping. I’m still sick. But my spirit, for having created, and for having done something that I want to do and feel like I am meant to do, is lighter and brighter than it was. Sometimes I forget that William of Occam’s rule can apply to life as well as theory. Often the simplest and most obvious answer is the right answer.

  • Seems like the spirits are telling me over and over again to pay more attention to my insight and imagination, which has always been such of big part of who I was. Haven't been as much in touch with that part of myself as I once was. And those aspects of me have always been among the few things I loved about being me.

  • Hi! I had a dream a week ago that kept me still thinking and curious. I dreamed of a number of seals including a baby seal that caught on the net and the baby seal is looking at me as if wanting to say something.

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards,
    Maria ☺️

    • It seems to represent how your ability to believe that your imagination can become a reality is being caught by your own rigid thought processes. Just because something is the way it is yesterday, doesn't mean it will be the same thing tomorrow. If that was so, nothing would change. There is always a first time for everything, and your past does not immediately decide your future. As long as you learn from the past, you don't have to repeat the past itself. So ask, even if you think it would involve reflecting about your whole life from the beginning until now, "What lessons can I learn from remembering the past and all my mistakes?" Then carry those lessons with you going forward.

  • I had a dream a seal was swimming in my swimming pool and I decided to lock the gate around the pool because I had to go to work. Before leaving I decided to feed the seal fish. Two more appeared and so I started throwing fish in the pool. The two new seals were fine and ate the fish but the first seal wanted to be hand fed and got out of the pool. I wouldn't hand feed it so it nipped my elbow. It didn't hurt or anything but I tossed a fish on the ground and the seal wasn't having it. I told it I wasn't going to give it anymore fish and then it ate the fish on the ground then got back in the water and ate the other fish.

  • I dreamt I was a councilor at a school for young children when a man and woman brought in a small seal wrapped in a blanket, the seal was crying and in distress. Although I stated and restated that I was not a vet they insisted that I attempt to help the seal. I went to the animal and quickly realized that the seal was in labor, she was in pain and she was scared. I patted her and acted as her doula, i reassured her that there was nothing to fear and that she was a strong woman, she starred into my eyes as if to say "thank you". She gave birth to a little seal and everything became peacful and joyful. As the baby seal ran around playfully I slowly began to notice that it was actually a little kitten with a very long tail (the end kitten part of the dream may simply be because a stray cat that we feed recently had kittens, i'm not sure though). If anyone has any insight as to what this may mean that would be wonderful.

    • Hi Karen
      The seal represents your playfulness and joyful disposition, also point blank it stands for sealing the deal. Perhaps you are losing or have lost some of your joyful side of your spirit hence the injury to the tail and your subconscious is trying to get it back . In your waking life maybe you have or will be going through a phase to which will take a piece of your joy away , try and focuse on not losing this side of yourself. Otherwise if you have a business issue that needs to be finalized , now a the time ..

About 30 min after waking up it couldn't leave my mind so I googled what it mean to dream about seal and it all made sense what google told me it realted to me in all the positive ways! Thanks for listening to me have a blessed day and remember if its anything or dream you want to fulfill and make reality in your life just believe in God in yourself In your dreams and Seal The Deal lol but seriously Take care

    • Two nights ago I dreamt while I was swimming in the ocean my hand felt something and I wasn't scared if it was a shark so I put my hand under its chin and a seals head popped up and was smiling at me. And from then on these huge waves I swam under were no big deal and I could feel the seal around me. I felt protected and I have never dreamt of a deal before nor seen its meanings. I also met with some one that same day who offered to help bring in more clientele for my buisness
