Welcome to my dream...
This dream is so fun, I had to share it!
I have this recurring dream where I am dancing in this Bollywood like movie, everyone is happy and laughing and joyful... I'm there as myself as well as this elaborately decorated white elephant! I say white, really it's more blonde... which makes sense since I'm blonde. (There's a bit of blonde logic at work! lol)
I'm not familiar with Indian mysticism to comment on any sort of significance related to dreaming of being an elephant, nor am I entirely comfortable in the idea of associating a deeper or more significant meaning to a simple dream, but I will admit that this is a very happy dream. I feel so peaceful and celebratory, like everyone's let their hair down - and agendas at the door - and are just celebrating being alive.
Read what you like into the dream - or not - I just think it's fun. The sentiment feels very similar to the effect of positive humor, which is delightful.
It's not so much humor as a device that captivates my attention, it is the fact that humor can evoke these feelings within us, feelings that result in so many energizing, happy, and later productive moments. It's as if laughter is one route to enlightenment... should you so choose to dance your way to eternity!
I Googled "Happy Dancing Hindu Elephant God"
and got this:
Interestingly enough, this is exactly the energie I'm talking about. Happy, joyful, peaceful, cheerful, open. Its extra arms are like all the arms in my dream, moving around to the flow of the music. I haven't yet researched this Indian deity, but I would imagine that she is the embodiment of happiness and joy because that's how you feel in her presence.
