What energy does an elephant hold symbolically?

When I think of an elephant the first thing that comes to my mind is the phrase gentle giant. There is both a sensitivity and a strength embodied within the elephant, as well as ageless wisdom.


The elephant holds the key to feminine wisdom and power. She brings with her ties to the trinity of the maiden, the mother, and the crone. The sacred feminine is anchored in the depth of her wisdom and compassion.


Elephants are deeply rooted in their family lines. They rely on their lineage instinctually and stay tied to the herd throughout their entire lives, marching together through each experience.

They understand the value of love and loyalty, something that is instinctual to the elephant itself. They also understand that family does not just refer to blood relative - they have the capacity to experience this tie of love and loyalty even to others who have proved worthy to the elephant.

The elephant energy may show up in your life if you are on a path of learning or seeking. With the innate connection they have to that divine feminine wisdom, this animal can help guide the path as you unravel whatever it is you are seeking in this life - which will often bring you back to the heart, the earth, and the nurturing of connection.


Often times when you are called to the elephant, the message associated with it is connectedness. Maybe there is a need to reconnect with your tribe. Maybe there is a need to reconnect with meaning or purpose in your life. When feeling disconnected from the people in your circle, or the meaning of your life, it may help to call on the elephant to bring her magic with you.

The elephants innate wisdom and understanding of tribe dynamics as seen in the herd, can help reform the connections that you feel are missing in your life.

Times when it might be helpful to call on the elephant totem-

When feeling tension within your family or close knit groups.

When you’ve lost connection with your loved ones, your feeling of purpose, or your understanding of meaning in your life.

When you need clarity or a deeper understanding behind the “metaphysics” of who you are and what you are here for.

When you are in need of confidence and strength to endure what’s in front of you from the heart and with compassion.

Elephants symbolize awareness linked to the divine feminine principle. Their presence alone exudes authority and confidence- a strength that is deeply rooted and yet met by their giant stature. They don’t use their size for intimidation unless threatened. They hold their strength in a very calm and contained way because its roots are from within.


If the elephant continues to come forward for you check in with these traits. Are you in need of the elephant’s wisdom?
