Seal Dream Meaning and Interpretations

It is a time where your imagination is working overtime with visions of what your future can be. This may seem far-fetched. Even impossible though you have high hopes. But the seal is telling you to follow your dreams. Do not stifle your creativity, your imagination. Let it loose on the world.

The seal can also symbolize your high expectations for yourself. This may be a time where your relationships and commitments can be challenged while you work to maintain expectations. Do not lower them, or you will fail to make necessary changes.

A seal is a jovial little fellow who loves to play. This can represent you and your attitude to life. You can adapt easily to emotional situations. Sometimes not taking them too seriously, being able to see them for what they are. The seal may also be reminding you to finish off what you have started. Seal the deal.

  1. I had a dream that I visited my grown daughter and she was keeping a small seal in a tiny tank and treating it like a pet (dog) The seal was friendly but looked so sad and I kept telling her she could not keep it and needed to give it to the RSPCA or animal sanctuary. What was this dream trying to tell me?

  2. I dreamt I was in a beautiful hill and suddenly I realised a group of black goats were staring at me. It was scary. Then I saw they were eating a seal that was still alive but had no tail, and was surrounded by her baby seals.
    The goats left when I approached the scene and the seal was bleeding out. I tried calling all the vets I could find ion google and it was so frustrating because I could not reach any.
