The Elephant is considered a sacred animal totem by many world cultures. With its enormous size and strength, this mammal acts as a symbol and embodiment of several Eastern gods, representing royalty, war, weather, and more. The elephant is perhaps most recognized for its powerful trunk, through which it can easily smell toxins and move objects despite its lackluster sense of sight. Those connect with this totem may wish to consider how smell plays a role in their lives and how your senses can help you overcome obstacles.
Elephants are also recognized for their communal behavior. Older elephants are known to stay with their families and help raise the young. If you’ve connected with the elephant as your animal totem, check for opportunities to aid your family or community. Your wisdom and strength may be of greater service than it may appear.
