Elephant Ears and Wisdom

Do you have elephant ears?  I hope so!  What do I mean by this?…  Are you a good listener?  Are you listening to the messages your soul is whispering in your ears? Are you acting on your intuition?  It is the perfect time of year to learn about elephants because they remind us of the power of listening to the soul.

Cultivating a good ear for inner wisdom is crucial to creating a life of meaning, happiness, and success.

The power within you is magnificent.  You may think of yourself as ‘just a person’, but you are here on the planet with a unique purpose.  You are a storehouse of treasures waiting to be unveiled.

As we turn toward the Fall season and Winter, we are reminded to turn within.  It is a time of conserving our resources so we can set to our important inner work which will bear more fruit next year.

Just as the fruits fall to the Earth during this time, the leaves release and let go, it is time for us too as humans to release and let go of what does not serve us.

Identify what is absolutely essential in your life and be willing to release the rest of it!

The glorious elephants with their large ears remind us to listen more and speak less.  This is not just literal.

We are reminded to listen more to insights, revelations, and guidance being offered by our higher self.  We are reminded to slow down the incessant thoughts and daily distractions. Listen to the depths of your soul more often.

Some ideas to cultivate your ear for your inner wisdom:

  • Spend time in nature
  • Journal
  • Meditate
  • Take a luxurious bath and allow your mind to drift away as you focus on the sensation of warm water and comfort.
  • Listen to guided meditations
  • Practice mindfulness

Elephant: Forget Me Not

We are a sponsor for the National Museum of Animals and Society, “Elephant: Forget Me Not,” exhibit which is launching this weekend and runs through the end of November.  There is still time to get tickets for the Saturday night soiree.  We hope to see you there!

From the NMAS Website:

ELEPHANT: FORGET ME NOT illustrates the majesty and the beauty of the elephant by looking at the unique behavioral characteristics elephants possess, their presence throughout history, and the issues that the species is currently facing today.

 

Elephants have been used symbolically throughout history and have been viewed as strong, powerful, sometimes even violent or scary creatures capable of doing much harm. But when you ask anyone who has worked with or observed them intimately you would be hard pressed to find anyone who has not been immediately enamored by the grace and dignity that they exude.

 

It is our hope that the work of conservationists, artists, authors, filmmakers, and scientists with a soft spot for these sentient beings will capture your hearts and minds, leaving you with a better understanding of why elephants need to be saved from an almost certain fate before it is too late.
