Elephants represent grandness, sharing, and perceptivity. Elephants are social animals; they celebrate and grieve together. They seek each other’s company and family is at the forefront of their social organization. Elephants are able to recognize themselves in a mirror and have come to symbolize sympathy and altruism.
These enormous creatures –Ganesha’s Western counterparts – are innately attuned to the earth’s vibrations, able to reconfigure topography, removing obstacles and making dark spaces alight.
"Psychoanalysts and elephants, they never forget." - Arthur Laurents
The old saying that someone has an “elephant’s memory” is based on the fact; they do not forget. When we keep our memories fresh and subject to contemplation – rather than just reinforcing what we prefer to remember—we have an opportunity to learn from them, to evolve into wiser, more compassionate beings.
