Well based on the limited info you gave I'm going to assume you flashed a rom. Likely a bad download.
If so download a different rom or re download the rom and flash again. Make sure you're doing a full wipe. Also be sure you're on the latest stable recovery.
Worst case if all of the above fails, odin the stock rom and start over and you'll be fine

running DECEPTICON rom (coming soon)

When you see "RECOVERY IS NOT SEANANDROID" as the phone
tries to boot or boots it's perfectly normal after the phone is rooted.

Here is a fix which works 90% of the time for most people with the same
issue you are experiencing with your phone.

Power down the phone, then power it backup while holding the
phone's power/volumeUp/home buttons down all at the same time
until you see tiny blue text appear on top of your screen, as soon as
you see that let go of all buttons.

The phone will boot into Recovery mode.

Once you are in recovery mode do a "factory data reset" or factory reset
which ever way the option is displayed.

After that the phone reboots itself and it should fully boot making the phone
ready to use.

Good luck!
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).

Take the battery out for a minute or so, then reboot into recovery. If no go, reflash your recovery (make sure you're using the right one obviously.

RECOVERY IS NOT SEANANDROID ENFORCING is normal when you have a custom recovery installed. It's just telling you that the official samsung signature isn't there. There's many threads regarding bootlooping around, a quick read probably would have sorted you

PS: For the record, if you're getting physically sick about it, maybe you should read up a bit more before messing around with your very expensive device. I might sound awful but it's the truth.

Default Fixed It

The problem was i flashed the wrong recovery and my phone would not load or even go into download mode. I found somewhere online that if i held the download mode buttons before i put the battery in it would work and it did which allowed me to re flash my recovery.
