Amazing! I’m catching on, my Father, I’m catching on. I know You won’t let me run wild with all that is already happening among ourselves. In awe, I wait on You. Here is Your answer to decipher my dream:
Elephants, though strong, are also inherently social creatures, and usually not given to violent outbursts unless provoked or protecting their family. They are often attributed with great wisdom due to their combination of strength with gentle natures, their long lives and complex social structures. Dreaming of elephants may be a reflection of strong family bonds, a need to protect and nurture those close to us. Elephants may arise in dreams when we are challenged, but they may also make an appearance when are going through family changes, when children are born, or when we feel a growth in our responsibility, and even in our wisdom. These can be stabilising, reassuring and inherently positive dreams. Elephants in dreams can symbolise commitment, personal growth and the attainment of a certain wisdom that comes with maturity. They can also reflect learning to lead by inclusion, of balancing strength with gentleness, of understanding the importance of communication and patience.
The memory of elephants is also legendary. They live a long time and are able to remember other elephants and even humans from their earliest years. In dreams, this could be a sign that there are some significant memories worth revisiting, a reminder that there are valuable things we should not forget.
Ultimately, our perception of elephant dreams will reflect our other perceptions of life. Like the Buddhist parable of the three blind monks who felt a different part of the elephant’s body – one felt the leg and assumed he was touching a tree, another his trunk and thought he held a snake and the third felt the elephants side and believed it be a wall – to really understand the dream we need to look at it in it’s entirety, and not judge it simply by one part.

Been thinking a lot on the meaning of the dreams. O my Father, it seems to me You are showing me Your wisdom within my being. Right now? It seems that all things in this computer are working against me. I will restart it. Perhaps that will take care of the matter.
