Seagulls aren’t found solely by the sea. They are often seen inland, and can flourish in both fresh and salt water areas. The Seagulls’ connection to water is symbolic, and represents the emotions.
The Seagull power animal guide is a spiritual messenger – If it is seen diving this could be a message to you to look at deep seated emotions that may need healing. If the Seagull is bobbing on the waters’ surface its message is to let go of worry, go with the flow more!
Even though the Seagull has no mention in Celtic Legend it is said to be connected to the Celtic God Manannan mac Lir and the Welsh Goddess Don.
Like other birds the Seagull is considered as a messenger from the Otherworld, particularly ancient Celtic deities.
Some sailors believe that to kill a Seagull can bring you bad luck for the rest of your sailing career! It is also said that if you see a flock of seagulls flying around in circles inland there is a storm on its’ way.
The power totem animal guide Seagull is considered a bridge between the living world and the spirit world. Opening yourself to their energy allows you to communicate with the other side.
The Seagull power animal guide is a spiritual messenger that shows a higher communication with your guides is taking place.
The power totem animal guide Seagull teaches that you must look at a situation with better clarity and teaches that there are many viewpoints to consider.
Typically the Seagull is considered a pest and a scavenger, making their nests out of rubbish and vegetation. Sometimes people with this power animal guide can be deemed as messy or untidy and although they are apparently quite comfortable with these characteristics friends and family can often find these traits unpleasant which can create difficulties in the relationship or home.
Even though they are scavengers they seldom fight over food, typically the one that gets the food first is the one to eat. The message of the Seagull to you therefore is one of fairness and respect and how to create relationships based on these two attributes.
The Seagull is a born survivor being able to survive in the worst possible conditions as well as go for long periods of time without food. The message of the Seagull to you therefore is one of stamina and perseverance.
The animal power totem Seagull can rid you of negativity – like in 1849 when there was an invasion of locust in California which could have destroyed crops a flock of Seagulls fed on the locust and put an end to the invasion.
Or in the 1930’s in the Midwest when thousands of grasshoppers appeared a flock of Seagulls fed on the grasshoppers and stopped the invasion. Characteristically Seagulls will eat anything if they have too!
The seagull speaks about opportunity, resources and adaptability. Seagulls go where they can find the best food. The message of the Seagull to you therefore is to remind you to move to where the best resources might be. He also teaches you to make the most of what you already have.
The animal power totem Seagull brings the message of freedom and a carefree attitude. The Seagull recognises that freedoms is a state of mind and of the heart therefore allow yourself to enjoy this freedom no matter where you are or what you are doing, let go of worry and petty concerns even if it is just for a short while feel this freedom!
The Seagull power animal guide teaches co-operation, friendship and community are important. If the power totem animal guide with you is the Seagull remember it is important to accept your responsibilities, when you commit to something and others are depending on you it is not acceptable to let just them down.
The Seagull power animal guide teaches to therefore connect a carefree attitude with a responsible nature and recognise which behaviour is deemed necessary at the time.
Sometimes people with this power animal guide can be deemed selfish, quarrelsome even mischievous. The message of the Seagull to you therefore is to learn the lessons of proper behaviour, courtesy and communication, it could be either telling you to polish up on your social skills or perhaps someone around you needs your help to polish up on theirs.
The Seagull could also be bringing you the message that new forms of communication are going to be learnt or needed.
The Seagull power animal guide teaches perspective and asks you questions such as are you going with the flow or fighting it? Are you co-operating well with others? And are you open to communicating with your guides and helpers?
The Seagull could also be bringing you the message to look, listen, live take action and be!
Seagulls are quite chatty. They have no problems squawking and letting their voices be heard. The Seagull could also be bringing you the message to find your voice, and be fearless about speaking your mind.
Seagulls use a complex combination of gestures and calls to communicate, therefore the Seagull power animal guide teaches how to read people more effectively, and how to understand the subtleties of communication like body language and facial expression, teaching you how to read between the lines.
