In the last 24 hours, I have been on a safari with my soul.
Moments captured only by me and no one else penetrated my understanding of what it means to connect on a level so enriched by spirit that squealing to you about my journey is a must. So I hope you got your best shoes on to walk with me.
Virtual flats, heels or sneakers will do.
I rumbled in a mess of despair last week and had to conjure a quickish spell for my love to remain at peace.
Truly the heartache that I feel when I’m snubbed for superficial reasons set me off like a volcano. I have anger issues and it’s partly due to the injustice and stupidity I have carried as an old soul in this universe. Time after time, you would think that the human population would somehow just get it.
Nah we have half of them worshiping the ego and the other half is ignorant to anything remotely cosmic. I do know this isn’t fair to all those that are trying their best and following a vibration much suited for a Utopia, but the interesting thing in all of life is the effortless simplicity embedded within our tiny earthbound bubble.
I was called to elephants to understand my life in this moment.
My mind is blown so far – to be able to look at a regular zoo animal symbol that you simply accept without question after all these years with new and improved eyes restructures your way of connecting + understanding.
Elephants look alien to me.
Have you taken the time to feel an elephant with your mind? I don’t know about you but I don’t have easy access to feel up an elephant with my bare hands. So, I have to do it with my mind.
Taking in each leg, texture of the skin, smooth and sometimes crackled tusk.
What does it feel like to sound like an elephant, I asked myself. Then the message of this spirit guide was starting to appear. I watched mini-videos on YouTube about elephants and even managed to listen to an elephant soundscape while doodling my new moon intentions.
Ganesh a gayly pal of mine stepped forward. He is a Hindu god and has been devoted to my gay two-spirit for some time as well. I let this notion slide a bit because I knew there was more to elephant’s message for me than to connect to Ganesh. Not saying this isn’t the point, but more so that there are things we do not yet comprehend about animals that we take for granted so I wanted to mainly focus on elephantidae.
Elephants mourn death
Quite a bizarre message that stepped onto my path is that when it comes to death, elephants do care. They don’t ignore the carcass in front of them. I adore this symbology and fact because we often times tell ourselves it’s better to ignore the change we see along our way. We ignore the fact that someone is no longer who they were months maybe even days ago. Change is a constant in our world and how elephants handle their loss is how we should endure our own. I was always fearful of death. Afraid that my own story would not be finished in time for me to leave this energetic playing field. However, since my holistic wellness intuition colorful sexiness, I guess you can say death I am no longer afraid. I mourn in my own way and elephants do as well. A slowing pace and gentle examination of their counterpart’s remains fascinates me. It’s as though they use their trunks to feel out pieces of soul still left from their sister or brother.
At this point in my learning, I balled my eyes out. And even telling you about this makes me a wee bit teary – which takes me to my next point.
Elephants thrive as an emotive spirit
If you cross a mamma elephant with her child, you best believe some intense emotions are going to get you. I resonate with this particular aspect of elephant energy because I am not only an empath but an emotive. Emotives are people that avoid neutral gray feelings and authentically express how they feel when they feel it. Its brash and bold to say the least but the genuine feelings expressed are neither contrived or confusing. I much rather deal with energy that is real and honest as opposed to fake and misleading.
A part of elephant’s evolution derives from being a water species. This too plays into their amazing swimming capabilities but also on a metaphysical level, water is the element of intuition and emotions. I believe that if you have trouble giving or receiving emotions than take to an elephant and go with the flow. Feel your feelings as they are and don’t let social conditions and manners get the best of you. Honestly, it’s better to know how someone really thinks of you as opposed to the average passive aggressive behavior that dominates much of this society.
Elephants announce balance
Like all creatures and environments, balance is a huge element that sustains life. You can’t really judge which part came first and which came last as the whole process of life is one big circle. However when you remove a piece of the core movement than translating that energy skips a beat and you become lost. Symbiosis with elephants is adorable and friendly. Birds sit atop their royal steed in exchange for protection and meals. Elephants get a great grooming service! However that’s a small portion of balance.
The abilities that elephants have that humans cannot perceive without the use of technology is brilliant. Elephants communicate to other elephants miles away with their own natural voice and this walky talky ability is being compiled into a dictionary by the way. A special combination of deep guttural sounds made by elephants on a typically day have been loosely translated to mean “all is well.”
Of course, I am still getting used to elephant energy in my life and will wear my necklace with more pride and commitment when I need a reminder to acknowledge change, express my true feelings and keep balance.
To sum up my safari with elephant energy in three words:
Staying in touch
We must keep true to our inner elephant if we want to live in strength, firefly. Let me know if elephant energy is something you need more in your life right now. I would love to share with you the amazing 40-minute video about this wise sagey creature of the Great Rift Valley.
