What a Joy it is to invite you to this sacred ceremony with this beloved Spirit Animal and powerful teacher whose presence on Earth goes far back into ancient times. Elephant’s healing medicine and living message brings to life old wisdom, body/soul memory, deep emotionality and familial connection. Via a direct transmission from its Oversoul, these and other possibilities come alive in your DNA and human experience; they awaken from dormancy, providing tremendous opportunities for healing, empowerment and a richer embodiment of life. 

In witnessing the great size and strength of Elephants, it’s easy to overlook something subtle you may not know about them: that they are very deep feelers. Yes, they trumpet great joy, especially around their young ones and during reunions; but their sentience also shines in their immense willingness to grieve. They ritualistically mourn the death of family and friends in intricate ways; like in how they trek a good distance to visit a loved one’s carcass, interact with its bones and commune with its spirit. 

While Elephants show no reticence towards emotionality, for humans in the busy, disembodied West, the vulnerability of grieving is generally avoided. Particularly with boys, our cultures teach it’s bad to show tears and be weak; to let go and fall apart into a tear-soaked mess; and that doing so warrants a diagnosis / label and suppressive and toxic psychopharmaceuticals. 

A reluctance to feel sadness can impel one to default to anger instead as a way of life; as the easier or safer emotion. This survival adaptation, as you may know, is a surefire way to create health problems. Traditional Chinese Medicine says that cancer can be related to excess dampness in the system; and that this might be due to unfelt or unmoved tears. Too much unprocessed red hot angry energy can also cause issues with our liver and may seek resolution through (red hot) psoriasis or eczema — a needed exit strategy; much like how yelling at children and abusing dogs is an exit strategy.

In this ceremony, the deep feeling nature of Elephant comes to empower your relationship with grief. It does so by healing any fears of tears, like being taken advantage of or rejected if you become “too” vulnerable. It serves to transmute shame-based beliefs that claim crying is “for sissies / weaklings” or “bad / wrong”. And Elephant medicine helps to liberate you from limiting and lonely survival ideas that you “have to be strong”. 

With loving support from this Spirit Animal, freed e-motion (energy in motion) unlocks inner pressures that come from suppressing grief and associated painful memories for so long. With energy in motion released, reservoirs of vitality can flow more fully through your system, spontaneously resolving chronic mental, emotional and physical ailments. A greater capacity to be creative, productive and focused also naturally arises with inner fluidity. 

It must be made clear that Elephant is not here to take grief away from you, but to transmute pain and blocks associated with these trapped feelings that can span lifetimes. It comes to help you more safely and fully feel this sacred emotion as a gift to your heart and body, and as a necessary life skill. So that by learning to fall apart inside, you not only liberate your emotional body, but can better be with and transition through your outer world when it falls apart; which it inevitably will. And by learning to be with heartbreak, even welcome it, you can break open and through to what your Higher Self wishes to bring to you. 

Beyond supporting grief work, the medicine of Elephant lies in these animals’ extraordinary memory. Elephants have been around a very long time. Just consider their ancient ancestors the giant woolly Mammoth and Mastodon who go back hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of years. Having experienced the many ups and downs, the cycles of dark and light going back into antiquity, and with an acute sense of their expansive environment, Elephants are like walking Akashic record keepers for Gaia, gathering and holding the stories and wisdom of old in their massive bones.

Just as rocks and crystals hold ancient information from the planet, so too do bones. You can consider rocks and crystals as the bones of Mother Earth. Memory thus extends far beyond the confines of the brain; hence us saying, “I know/feel it in my bones.” This role as a record keeping storehouse is part of Elephant’s powerful medicine. Not only can this Spirit Animal heal painful memories and memory blocks, but it serves to activate ancient records, the forgotten wisdom of Earth and Sky, the cellular remembrance of our divine origins — the marrow or essence of who we are! 

Indeed, with old, deep memory banks, Elephants are like elder wisdom keepers, which is what large ears symbolize. This is true in Buddhism and other oriental traditions (or perhaps Spock?). The iconography of Buddha, for example, with long, stretched ears symbolizes having ears to hear, including the suffering world. It represents one who renounces the world in favour of spiritual enlightenment — of inner wisdom.

Another medicine and message of Elephant is their inspiring orientation towards family and community; to a herd mind- and heart-set. They are not lone creatures, but social ones that find strength in numbers and connection. For this reason, you may also turn to this beloved Spirit Animal to heal tender wounds around opening to others and intimacy. This may include patterns of pushing others away and not asking for help — of “I have to do it alone”. Another example is an unresolved pain related to betrayal that keeps you resentful, angry and distant from a loved one. 

Elephant’s gentle and nurturing healing presence can also help resolve the very painful and common childhood experience of not being wanted. Often felt starting in utero, this attachment wound is truly a matter of the heart, a pained heart, a heart that constricts and closes, aching, longing to feel-know I matter to you; I exist in your heart and mind. It goes without saying that this wound causes children to experience a deep, unbearable aloneness. 

On a lighter note, I should also say that you can ask Elephant to empower you to be even more loving as a mother, father, best friend, sibling, team-member, community builder, etc; to awaken new levels of devotion, patience, faith, intimacy / connectedness and joy in your most important relationships — divine, re-Source-ing qualities that already exist in your spiritual DNA, woven into your Higher Self.  

For these reasons and more, I’m so grateful and honoured to invite you to this sacred ceremony that holds endless possibilities for personal transformation. In setting your intentions for healing and empowerment, which you are guided to do via the link just below, you may ask for support on anything. Nothing is too much to ask from this beloved Spirit Animal. Most of all, listen to your heart and trust your connection with mightily beautiful Elephant.
