I had a dream!!!!

I was riding a male elephant in a precession with about 5 other elephant. I gave the elephant I was to ride on, some leaves, and he picked me up very gently and carefully and placed my on his back, as he knew that I was pregnant and needed to be treated with care. I rode on his back with the crowd cheering on either side and then came to a house where I was taken off the elephant by the matriarch of the group and placed very gently on the ground at the front door…..when I was reaching out to open the door I woke up!!! But the way the elephants treated me has stayed with me…so I decided to look up what the meaning of elephants.
 As a dream animal, elephants come into our dreams it is a message that we are able to deal with any obstacle we are faced with at this time.
 Dream elephants represent power, sovereignty, stability, and stead-fastness.
 If you dream that you are riding an elephant this suggests you have a tendency to be the leader of the family, and others are heavily depending on you.
 We gather more symbolic meaning of elephant by observing it in nature. Specifically, the elephant is considered a symbol of responsibility because it takes great care and responsibility of its offspring as well as their elders.
 The elephant also has immense determination and loyalty - always standing up for others and always defending members of the group in its natural habitat.
• Elephants also express advanced sensitivity and social connection, particularly during time of death - they travel to a specific place upon their death - fulfilling personal responsibility - even at the end of their days.
• To dream of riding an elephant, denotes that you will possess wealth of the most solid character, and honours which you will wear with dignity. You will rule absolutely in all lines of your business affairs and your word will be law in the home.
• To see many elephants, denotes tremendous prosperity.
• To dream of feeding one, denotes that you will elevate yourself in your community by your kindness to those occupying places below you.

Symbolic elephant meaning deals primarily with strength, honour, stability and patience, among other attributes.
To the Hindu way of thought, the elephant is found in the form of Ganesha who is the god of luck, fortune, protection and is a blessing upon all new projects. Ganesha in all his magnificently vibrant elephant glory, is intent on bulldozing obstacles on your behalf (funnily, male elephants are termed "bulls").
In many western cultures, the elephant meaning pertains to:
• Reliability
• Dignity
• Power
• Royalty
• Pride
In Christian symbolism the elephant is an icon of temperance, patience, and chastity.
As a Chinese symbol, the elephant is considered a symbol of:
• happiness
• longevity
• good luck
Some Asian cultures also believe the elephant is a cosmic creature, and carries the world upon its back (much like the tortoise does in some tribal Native American myths).
