Giving to Elephant

Last night, I did some searching on google for sites that focused on elephant conservation and once I found one that I felt comfortable supporting, I made a small donation. I don’t have a lot of income to spare right now, but I also recognized the value of giving something to elephant and I suspect that this will be something I do at least sometimes in my spiritual work with Elephant, depending of course on just what state my finances are in…but I think elephant can understand that.

After I gave the donation Elephant asked me to sleep with my elephant hair bracelet on. No mythical dreams of portent occurred, or anything else, but I did feel pretty good about it and when I meditated elephant came and visited and offered some support and guidance, because I was feeling very scattered. I felt more focused and even now can feel a quiet urging from him.

This could be all in my head, all in my imagination, but it does work, for what it needs to be. That’s really all I can ask…and if in the process of that I can give something of myself to help another being as well then it makes it even better.

Review of Integral Psychology by Ken Wilbur

This was a very interesting read, which examined the varying theories of psychology and focused on integrating those theories together and then providing an overarching theory that they could fit into, supplied by Wilbur. The author is clearly very well studied in what he discusses and provides some detailed explanations that provide a successful argument for what he’s attempting to do. This can be a dense read and jargon heave, especially with some of the words the author has come up with on his own, but don’t let that discourage you. I see this work as an essential read for occultists, a way of expanding their understanding and application of psychology to their own practices. The charts at the end of the book are helpful for illustrating what Wilbur is explaining. My only wish is that he could’ve integrated the charts more into the book, instead of at the back.

4 out of 5 stars

Thanks for the websites and information. I do have some elephant figurines already, but thank you for your kind offer.

It's rather interesting what you mention above, because most of my efforts are currently driven toward getting my business fully off the ground. Looks like elephant is coming in at the right time.

I agree with your efforts at giving or doing a little bit with the being you are working with. I've been trying to clean up my stream in working with water and picking up the nearby roadway or gardening when working with earth. But since I've been reading about your work with elephant I keep wondering if you are familiar with the "jeweled elephant"? You can find it or the "gift horse" being used as a wealth attractor. (Along with the 3 legged-frog which is in the midst of its transformation from tadpole to frog).

This site has a touch of info but I'll copy it below since it has only a bit of info on elephant specifically.

Elephants have a reputation in both Chinese and Indian culture for attracting wealth. Images of trunk-up elephants often adorn the homes of people hoping the elephant will be a lucky image for them.

This one has a good image and a little information on elephant.

The white elephant has connotations to the "Word of Law" and future incarnations of Buddha:

I know these tidbits aren't much. I'm not sure where my Feng Shui books are right now. If you look for a good book of lucky symbols or animals of Feng Shui I'm sure you can get some better details. Anyway. Have been thinking of you and elephant. And there are some elephant figurines in the dollar store nearby right now. Let me know if you could use one.
