In Scottish folklore the Selkies or Seal-Faeries are seals that turns into young maidens when they emerges from the sea. The seal is regarded as a magical animal for its ability to vanish effortlessly beneath the water with barely a ripple.
The seal represents love, happiness and dilemma and the unseen, sometimes enchanted boundary between longing and contentment. People with the seal as their animal guide often tend to be peaceful types although they can have a tendency to become over-emotional on occasion.

It allows us to connect with our inner child. In their natural environment the seal is confident, swift and graceful, moving effortlessly through the watery depths.
