Dream meaning: Elephant

elephantStrength; endurance; with an upturned trunk, good luck. In ancient times, the shape of an elephant in geological or cloud formations represented the world axis. Probably the most well known elephants are the cartoon Dumbo, which may symbolize immaturity or the ability to escape the mundane by flying, and Kindu God Ganesh, son of Shiva, who symbolizes our ability to overcome obstacles. Honoring Ganesh is said to bring prosperity, in general, and wealth, special. In some parts of Asia he is also the patron of artists or academics.

    I am going to college to study horses. But, recently I had a dream where I was studying elephants in stead. In my dream I was studying abroad in Australia…Australia! Elephants aren’t normally in Australia. Anyway, I was on the beach and there were several wild elephants on the beach as well. They were just walking around and playing in the water. The locals on the beach didn’t mind them, it was a normal happening. The elephants didn’t mind people either, because I was in the water with the elephants and touching and playing with them. I don’t know what this means, I just know I woke up feeling very strange and couldn’t help but think about what my dream meant, if it means anything at all.

    I dreamed I was at a cellar door it felt like i worked there and it was a work meeting or something. we were having a promotional photo taken with 5 tame elephants. the trainer whispers to them and the elephants put their trunks together facing up so that the openings of their trunks made a beautiful shape. I was so calm and new they would not hurt me. i was standing in the middle right by the trunks as it was such an awesome opputunity to get so close just waiting for the photo but my colleagues just couldn’t get it together still Talking and doing other stuff. In my mind I was thinking these elephants can’t hold this position for ever come on! So we wait. as I was standing there in the middle the trunks were pushing on my torso as they got restless but it was in a friendly way and was nothing I couldn’t handle. The trainer decides to let them rest until everyone is ready so we break and have a glass of wine

    I fell asleep very quickly and dreamt that a baby folded his arm to his shoulders with his head down, I went up to greet the baby with my arm opened and when he looked up to me it was Baby Ganesh and then Iwoke up so happy.

    I dreamed of seeing a baby elephant that had been shot or injured but the elephant was not normal color it was a tiger striped elephant in my dream I wanted to help it so much that when I saw it, it was laying on the ground on a tarp or blanket behind a box truck as if they were there to rescue it but when it saw me it stood up as if nothing had happened but the wound was still there and bleeding

    I was sitting up in bed in my dream, there was a statue of an elephant on my shelf. It was one of those red wooden Chinese statues, about the size of a cat. All of the sudden it stood up and started walking around, nudging of things, and looking for affection. After it “came alive” it no longer seemed wooden, although it’s skin was still red, it was fleshy. I have no idea what it represented, but it was very cool!

    I dreamed of this fantasy creature that look exactly like a elephant, I called it Ocean Killer Elephants. I was on the beach and looked over at these 2 girls and their dad walking on the beach, and they sat down not knowing anything bout whats gonna happen to them. I was scared and was speechless when i saw this elephant thing rise from the water and sprint or rampage to them. It suddenly grabbed them one by one and ate them. Blood was everywhere dripping from its trunk and blood were sinking in the sand.

    I screamed not knowing what it will do next, it noticed me and almost got to me but it couldn’t leave the shore so i rushed to my house almost freaked of what I saw. After the incident my mother and brother thought i was crazy for thinking there were such things as a Ocean Killer Elephant. Later the next day the same thing happened to the people who were killed on the beach. A married couple were spotted sailing on there boat and stopped and rested on the beach till the creature sprinted towards them and killed and ate them.

    Reporters came at the scene and also me and my family. My mom and brother thought it was B.S so they were calling it to come which I wasn’t up to the calling. It and many others like it came running towards us and we all screamed terrified and ran towards the buildings, i knew the creatures wouldn’t follow us because they live in the ocean so it cant go to far from where it belongs. We eventually made it home and i was scared at the fact that I almost died twice from that creature. I woke up seconds later actually thinking I’m Not Going To A Beach again! but after all that i went to ask if such a creature existed since i was truamatized by it, and it wasn’t true and I realized it was just my imagination.

    I’m watching two huge elephants. They were GIANT elephants. Each is carrying many, many people. One was “normal” colored. The other was so beautiful, colorful, and adorned. I later found out it was, indeed, Ganesh.

    I had a dream like I was a kid again with my mom. I remember waking up in a huge bed with my pet baby elephant. It was just like having just another dog. Also, in the dream I had 2 different dogs I had never seen before and an above ground aquarium in the backyard like a glass dough-boy, or something, with a bunch of exotic fish. It was a very peaceful feeling like being a kid again playing with my friend the baby elephant 🙂

    I had a dream two years ago in which I was in India, passing by a crystal clear stream. Somehow I ended up in a huge temple of Lord Shiva. There was this gigantic pure white marble statue of Lord Shiva in the temple, and water was streaming down it in little rivulets, but the place was not flooding.

    Recently, I had another dream where I was in a temple again in India (note I am from the Caribbean and have never been to India). It was in the middle of a sort of marketplace and when I entered the temple with my husband, it was dusty and the offerings and flowers were all dried up. I told my husband that these are my father’s gods and I will pay my respects just as he would (note I am not Hindu). The temple was just filled on every wall with murtis of every description. Directly in front of me was a statue of the head of Lord Shiva and a beautiful pure gold Hanuman. I paid my respects and left.

    Would you kindly interpret this for me. Not long after this second dream, my cousin who I hardly ever sees e-mailed me a beautiful video of Lord Shiva bhajan. It seems he is popping up everywhere!

    I dreamed that I was sitting in a truck and infront of me about 100 m away an Elephant was aggressively picking up a baby of about 8 months and viciously pushing it against the wire. The elephant would then pick the baby up with his trunk and throw it quite a distance. I drove up and got out of the car but when I was close enough the elephant was on top of the baby and I tried to stick my finger in his eyes to let go of the baby but he didn’t want to. I was also frightened as another elephant from the back was getting ready to storm upon me. So in my own mind I just decided to let go because I was afraid that the new elephant will take me and push me around and eventually kill me, I woke up seconds later…
