If Monkey has come visiting you:

Monkeys are amazing creatures swinging our way with messages of intelligence, intensity and involvement. Perhaps you have forgotten that playfulness and entertainment are good for the soul. These animals have a strong capacity for for compassion, understanding and bonding. These are all part of our human social make up as well and they serve to remind us that our journey on this planet is not a solitary one. When it comes to solving problems this creature knows how to use their own ingenuity and resourcefulness to solve problems.

If Monkey is your Animal Totem:

If this animal is your totem, you’ve got a penchant for practical jokes and good-hearted trickery. Be wise and choose the objects of your tricks carefully. There’s a time and place for good humor and this holds true for the recipient of our jocularity as well. When this animal is egging you on to pull a good prank (especially if this creature is your guide, it will absolutely encourage shenanigans), make sure your humor is well-intended, and the brunt of your joke will take your meaning as it’s intended.

If Monkey has come to your dreams:

It could mean that you are being deceived by flattery in some way. Perhaps you are fooling yourself into thinking that everything is right with the world when in fact things are completely the opposite. If this animal bites you know that something you have said or done is coming back to bite you. Be prepared to un-ruffle feathers. Monkey in dreams also remind us that we have a sense of community and that this part of our soul needs to be fulfilled.

  • Monkey, Katsi’nónhtaks, (Yes, I could find a Mohawk word for Monkey, but not Badger. Don’t ask me why that would be so…) speaks to me of play and creativity, something we forget goes hand in hand. Play is how we learn. But as adults we tend to become petrified in place by our unwillingness to make fools of ourselves, something that all true play requires you to do. All intelligent animals are also extremely playful. (Including Badger and Wolverine, by the way) We should remember that as we face obstacles in life. Katsi’nónhtaks, reminds me of that as I go back out into the world after a difficult time.

  • I dream that i visited a male friend.i dnt knw who he is i cant see his face in my dream.then His pet baby monkey hugged me and it seems the baby monkey wont let go and is so happy to see me. Everywhere i go,this baby monkey wants to tag along and keeps on hugging me.I tried to gently push him away frm me but he wont let go. So i push the monkey away abit harder, but he bit my thumb.i got scared so i kinda push it away frn me and run outside.

  • When I awoke at 4am this morning I observed a small monkey playfully cavorting on the ceiling of my bedroom. He didn’t seem bothered by me. But it was scary to me to have him in my room. So I asked him to leave and he moved to a corner of the ceiling and faded away. This is not the first time I’ve observed playful figures in my room. I promise I was fully awake.

  • I had two dreams with monkeys in them and I am not sure if it is my spirit animal or not. The first dream I had I was in my backyard but I could sort of fly it was like I was on the moon. There were many monkeys and I’m pretty sure i hit one of them and then they all started to attack me. Now that I think about this dream I think that I was about to do something later that would affect me because my next dream(which was exactly a day after the first dream)my friend had a monkey and we played with it and held it. I don’t remember if I did something wrong and fixed it then but to me it seems like it once I think about it. But then I still don’t know what my spirit animal is and will wait for it to come to me when it thinks I am ready. 😀

  • I saw a dream where i saw monkey as well a dog.both of loved me. Mi key was paying respect and the dog itself camping walking to me and clinged to me as a small child. Happily and sensors bite in neck which didn’t hurt me at all and then slept off. It was one of my most unusual dream where there were one more dog but all were good to me. I personally also love dogs and this dream remind me of my dog.

  • I saw a huge monkey writing on my back and while wroting it said either die or become a monkey. Canyou tell me what does it mean??

  • I HAD A DREAM THAT THERE WAS A MONKEY IN A TREE THAT WENT FROM A BRANCH TO THE NEXT , JUST TO GET OFF AND WALK TOWARDS ME. WHEN I OPENS MY ARMS, THE MONKEY JUMPED ON ME AND LET ME HOLD IT. IT LET ME HOLD IT ENOUGH TO WALK OVER TO MY DAUGHTER AND A FEW NEPHEWS AD TAKE PICTURES. THE MONKEY ENDED UP MAKING A SMALL SCRATCH ON MY DAUGHTERS FACE, BUT IT DID NOT HURT HER. THEN I WOKE UP.
    THE MONKEY LOOKED BROWNISH WITH A WHITE BELLY AND A WHITE TIPPED TAIL . ANY IDEA WHAT THIS IS TRYING TO TELL ME?

  • On vacation I held a spider monkey on beach in The Dominican Rep. He licked me a few times then when trainer pulled his leash he bit my wrist. Shortly after the trainer placed him on my shoulder and took photos! He crawled under my hair and munched on it. Luckily all seems fine.

  • If monkey is your spirit guide, what is the relationship to apes? I found a monkey on a spirit quest guided by a shaman, but lately when I journey to a forest location I have been seeing distressed orangutan young, who I have the impression are orphaned. The last time I found so upsetting I have been avoiding returning. I looked in their eyes and felt all their pain, which was horrible. Then they would run off and vanish in the forest. I should have followed, but prior to that I only encountered some sort of elvish jungle people there, so I was surprised by the experience.

  • Hi I had a dream that my boyfriend was cheating on me and I found out and he said that he didn’t really like in the first place. Then I went home to find a monkey sleeping on my window sill outside in my back garden so I tickled it and it started laughing and jumped on to my arm and wouldn’t let go and everytime someone wanted to touch it it wanted to bite them but it only liked me. There was also a shed in the garden with a lion in it and it was rawing can you tell me what this means?

    • Sounds like they were there to help you to me. The monkey came to you, but the lion was contained. The monkey is probably a guide, the lion is a power available to you. Most likely the monkey holds the key to you accessing this power. If you can find him again, i would ask the monkey if he can help you. It’s also possible the lion is some sort of sentry and the shed represents some portal, in which case you would need permission from the lion to pass through. Again, I suspect the monkey could help you with that.

    • Spirit animals are there to help you. The monkey came to remind you you are worthy of love, and that love is playful. I would seek out the monkey if I were you.

  • I want to know what it means to dream about a small blue spider that looked like a monkey there where a few of them on the wall of a house at night time and they all started to jump toward me and I got scared and woke up

  • I had a reiki session and she saw monkeys playing around me while I was relaxed on the bed …does anyone have an idea the meaning of this …as I would love to understand the meaning behind there presence

    • What does it mean to you, could be that those were the guides drawn to you. Or that it’s your animal spirit. I once associated a lions tail pluming out of a customer. It was surreal.
