On the other hand, there may be a memory that you’ve been holding onto for far too long and you need to let go of it so you can move on. Something you’ve repressed that keeps cropping up. You need to release the past as it no longer has any place in the present.

The dream could be telling you not to forget something important- it’s acting as a reminder to you to so you won’t disappoint yourself or anyone else by letting it slip your mind.

Elephants are symbols of power, strength, faithfulness and intelligence. Perhaps you have more strength than you give yourself credit for. Or maybe you need to find strength to help you get through a difficult time.

Do you need to be more faithful to someone in your waking life or are your wasting your intelligence by working in a job that doesn’t help you to reach your potential?

Consider the introverted personality of an elephant- perhaps this is refection of your own and you need to work on being more outgoing or seeking out others who share your traits.

If you were riding an elephant, you are in control of your subconscious and perhaps those parts that you once feared. You are on finally on top.

If you were afraid of an elephant in your dreamscape, there may be a large problem in your life that you are unwilling to confront, even though it’s unavoidable.

If you were an elephant in your dream, you may need to vocalise your views and opinions more. You need to express yourself.

A herd of elephants coming towards you could symbolise feelings of being overwhelmed so maybe you need to tackle something at a more manageable pace.
