Elephant – An elephant is a symbol of patience and memory. It can be an indication that you need to slow down and contemplate a future plan of action. The elephant indicates subconscious wisdom, and as such will often lead you accurately when choosing between two paths. To dream that you are riding an elephant signifies that you are in tune with your subconscious, and that you allow your intuition to play a major part in guiding you. Riding on an elephant is also a symbol of royalty and wealth. On the other hand, if you dream that you are afraid of an elephant, this indicates that you are uncomfortable with something your subconscious has been trying to tell you, and that you are trying to avoid your intuition.
