Are you shirking personal responsibility? Perhaps it's time to catch up on a few things.
If Elephant has lumbered across your path;
Are you remembering to nurture yourself? Elephant reminds us that we must look after ourselves first before we reach out and help others. Know that we have the instincts that will lead us where we need to go and what parts of us need nourishment. Perhaps we have isolated ourselves from family and need to find our way home.
Alternatively you may have to shift your focus to view the whole picture. Occasionally it could mean that you have to unearth buried memories and let them go.
If Elephant is your Totem Animal;
You are extremely intelligent and will make an excellent researcher or scientist. You feel things deeply and respond to those feelings from a place of inner knowing. Family is very important to you, especially the very young and the very old. You have a soft spot for the weak and the helpless. Loyalty is your strong suit and you remain loyal in spite of difficult circumstances in all situations.
If Elephant has come to your Dream;
