*The Seal
Seals are at home in the water but give birth on land. During the mating season the males can
engage in ferocious battles one minute and be playful and amusing the next. Seals have the
agility to move from anger to complete calm. Being excellent swimmers they know how to flow
with the ever changing currents. If seal pops its head into your life you are being asked to review
the ebb and flow of your thoughts and emotions and maintain a point of balance.

Water is a creative element and represents the feminine imagination and intuition. When a seal
appears in your life it is a signal to pay close attention to your imagination and insight both in the
dreamtime and in the waking state. Much of what your imagining may have, and usually does, a
strong basis in reality no matter how far-fetched it appears.

Seals do not have external ears, just small openings. This signifies its kinship with their inner
voice and can show those with this totem how to listen to the sound within. That sound is a
inherent part of ones’ creative, imaginative powers.

Seals swim above and beneath the water enabling them to experience both the inner and outer
worlds. They teach those with this totem how to flow, how to hear, and how to discover the
deeper mysteries of their true nature. There are no limits to the creative energies stimulated by
this medicine. The seal is the keeper of wisdom and shows us what is hidden deep within
ourselves. They teach us how to integrate the our imagination with the reasoning power of the
intellect. Doing this promotes balance and harmony on all levels.


The Druid Animal Oracle by Phillip and Stephanie Carr-Gomm
Seal: Love, Longing, dilemma

Seal calls to you from the seal-people of the sea. The Dan nan Ron--the song of the seals--upsets
and frightens many who hear it. Its mournful and human sound stirs the heart of the listener to
the core. It is a call from the sea, from the Unconsciousness, from the depths. It calls to us from
the waters of our birth, from our beginnings on earth, from our brothers and sisters in the
animal realm who are closer to us than we dare imagine. We fear this call, because we feel we
may be drowned, overwhelmed by our feelings. But do not let your intellect imprison your heart,
as the human imprisons his selchie spouse--the magical seal. Opening yourself to the promptings
of the Unconscious, of the Feminine, of your dreams and longings will bring transformation,
healing and love into your life.

Contrary suggests that you may have come to a time in your life when you are faced with a
dilemma. Each way you turn could involve risk and potential loss, and yet you know you must
make a choice. The seal speaks of the longing of the heart, of true love, of a sense of humanity
and goodness. In the end, these should be the determining factors in your choice. Although the
seal may represent loneliness and separation, as the selchie imprisoned on dry land, remember
that the time will come when she will be released and will act as a guide and companion through
the watery realm of the emotions and the Otherworld.
