An ancient I would think. Might be related to Snufalupagus too
I am quite serious with the ancient part. The Snufalupagus part was just fun :)
Hey up. Yes I know what you mean. I am very close to Mammoths and believe I am connected to them. I would go with your instincts on this one.....they are similar to the elephant in character, family orientated and soulful but are much bigger and hardier. They are protective, strong and sensitive. They obviously became extinct due to climate change. I have a great connection to the north, and deeply concerned wit the oil drilling taking place. Not a stupid question at all --- but with most spirit animals- it shall teach you want it wants to show if you ask. I hope that makes sense. Love and Light xx
wow! Nice spirit guide! :) I have no idea what it symbolizes... I wonder if it means anything to you...
Research its lifestyle. What are its strengths or weaknesses? Compare them to yours. Animal guides appear to us to make us aware of things inside ourselves.
my immediate "felt sense"
was of a journey that you have been avoiding
it is telling you that you will be protected
that was what i sensed, immediately i read your question.
followed by a sense that you have been greatly honoured
i hope this is of some help.
respect to you from robbie

PS what was the mammoth doing ?
If his voice sounded like Ray Romano, then I say you were saved from Sabertooth tigers by a sloth in a previous life.
Beyond that... found these:
Wooly Mammoth -- (In the legends of the arctic peoples it was believed to be a large, burrowing monster who died when it saw sunlight) The use of ancient medicines. Freezing food for much later use.
Surely you jest when you say this is a serious question. A wooly mammoth spirit guide ? Spirits are supposed to be a human thing ( for chistians, anyway ). What religion attributes wooly mammoths with a spirit ?
Spirits are recycled energy. They can be anything. Also, native American astrology is based around animal guides or "totems"
Aboriginals I can understand having such beliefs because they were so ignorent of the sciences that they were supersticious and attributed things they didn't understand to magic concoctions, much as people of ansient history did. I thought you were asking this queation for yourself, as you haven't mentioned aboriginaies until you countered my comment. I gave you credit to for being an educated person.
Alaska? the ice age/cold weather?
Come on Lunadelobos, did you really expect a serious answer?
Have you been reading too much of Flintstone, B "A Revisionist Approach to Palaeontology" (pub. Hanna-Barbara) laced with a goodly mixture of the sort of literature you find in crystals-&-whale-song-CDs emporia?
This is EP after all...
They seemed to have lingered on in Northern Siberia until geologically very recently, possibly until only about 7000 years ago.
I don't believe in spirits & spirit guides so to me they have no meaning: they were just big hairy pachyderms. if though you do believe in them, they will mean whatever anyone cares to invest in them - hence my comment that you won't get a serious answer. Yes you will get some sincere replies, from either other believers giving their own view of its "meaning" , or from people like me denying the existence of such "guides".
Otherwise you can expect at least some mickey-taking.
fat and hairy
good eating elephant meat.
Funny, this is the only thing that has come up. Since I came across a mammoth bone myself. And I began to wonder what this may mean. All I could find at this point is its relation to the Elephant. i did find some relevant info.
The Woolly Mammoth brings seeds of the past forward to be healed. What stuff is unresolved and needs healing?
There are many people carrying pain from the past and continue to carry these painful memories. Time to process it now we are where we are.
Are you ready to move forward, recognizing we are all connected on the Spiritual level?
Let's create new memories of healing and compassion for one another. Could be some karmic work for today. You Are ready for it.
i know to some it sound crazy, but ever since I Have came across totem Medicine my life has improved dramatically.
