Chimp Meaning and Messages

In general, Chimpanzee symbolism has arrived to remind you that your language and communication skills are essential right now. Trying to browbeat your opponents with knowledge and intelligence is not the way to go. Moreover, if you tell them what you think they need to hear, then they usually won’t listen to you. In other words, this spirit animal is advising that you change your tactics. You should share anecdotes and feelings about yourself instead. This way, they can have a deeper understanding of what you are trying to say. It will also allow them to integrate and absorb the knowledge on their terms. Therefore, the chimp meaning is symbolizing that a gentle and subtle nudge in the right direction will often lead others toward the self-discovery they require

Alternatively, like the Armadillo, Chimpanzee symbolism may be letting you know that it is time for you to set some boundaries. In other words, people have been using you a little bit too much of late.

Chimp Totem, Spirit Animal

People with chimp totem have a great deal of intelligence and knowledge. These folks are always the wise adviser and mentor to many of their peers. As a result, they are continually manifesting and transmitting their insights, awareness, and observations of the human condition. People with the Chimpanzee spirit animal are amiable, innocent, curious, and gentle. They are also very committed and successful in their relationships. Occasionally, they function as a benevolent trickster and teacher to those around them. Chimp power animal folks, like the Roadrunner totem, also have a powerful connection with all things spiritual and use their intuition regularly.

Chimpanzee Dream Interpretation

When you have a Chimpanzee dream, it suggests that you are missing something that is right in front of you. In other words, what you thought was reality is quite the opposite. Thus, it could be that you are overthinking an issue. Alternatively, to see a family or group of Chimpanzees indicates that your family issues are now resolving. Therefore it is now time to return to peace and harmony within the family group.

    I just want to know what this dream is trying to say to me …. because it felt that real to me ..and I was totally unconscious.

  2. Hello, I dreamt that my dead dog and a chimpanzee were walking together around a landmine field navigating the mines.

  3. hello …… i saw chimpanzee in my house and my mther and sis and a neighbour and we were unable to understand what type of creature was it so my nieghbour caught it in hands and showed it to us i was very scared of it then he passed it to my mother she saw it and throwed it towards my neighbour (like we play catch catch with a ball) im confused what does it means please help me.

  4. I had a dream about chimpanzee sleeping next to me when i open space between us then she/he comes closer until he/she come too closer in my face want see myself maybe am sleeping or not.
    So in my dream at that time is i was crying.

    Please anyone help me about this dream

    1. I think this is meaning that.

      Someone who you care about, is trying to get close to you, which you allow by opening space. However you are extremely guarded, and feel like this person is pushing your boundaries way to hard, and is attempting to come closer than you wish.

      I think you understand that this person is a gentle spirit, and his intentions aren’t to cause you discomfort, however his behavior causes you emotional pain.

      I think the best way to deal with this situation, is to talk to the person you love, and tell them that you value your time and space, but also make sure that you validate their need for closeness and intimacy, and maybe you can build an understanding.

      This is my own interpretation, it may make sense, it may not. You are the best source for your own intuitions. Hope this helps!

  5. Hello…I had a dream in the afternoon nap about a baby chimpanzee(it was my pet in that dream) leaving me with its mother by waving hand and saying goodbye, I became very sad and was about to cry in the dream. What does this mean?

  6. I dreamt of a chimp and we were going to be spiritually connected in church, it was large and I carried it with me, it later turned into a beautiful woman, then my mom brought the razers with them the beautiful lady drew a pentagram between my thumb and wrist and also drew them on herself, it was not scary at all, later we sang church hymns. What could it possibly mean.

  7. I dreamt I had a baby and was walking around with it in my arms. It was swaddled up in a white blanket with only its head peeking out. When I finally looked down to look at it, it was actually a newborn chimpanzee; not human baby. What does this mean?

  8. I had a dream where chimpanzees were in cages and i was looking for a way to release them from their cages.The place looked like a deserted Building and I leave the place to look for keys or stones to free them.I gather food for them and i even had eggs in my egg falls and breaks. A white cat runs to eat it .he is hungry and gobbles it up so i drop another egg for him this time it lands on him and I laugh but he mews at me and continues to eat.I go back to the building and break open the cages and I free them but one little chimp hugs me and doesn’t let me go. What might this dream indicate?

    1. That you are a great human and your uncorruptible and individualization process is ocurring harmoniously

  9. I had a dream where I fought thousands of chimpanzee, killed many and later ran away for my life.
    What’s the interpretation of this dream.

    1. Last night I dreamt about a chimpanzee who is somehow entering in my house or my collage ( I really don’t remember) but that’s the place where many people are staying or coming together … and that chimpanzee is also living there like they are staying in their own place ( jungle) but people start scared off it … and they are trying to make him out … and doing different kind of tricks … same to me too … but main thing is I saw that chimpanzee is able to communicate with me rather I can understand him … I am the only one to whom he wants to communicate … what does it mean ?

  10. I had a dream that a chimpanzee is playing amongst people in my house while I was cooking in the kitchen,to me I was afraid it could turn out to be dangerous and I kept locking the kitchen door against myself and one of my daughters and a visitor but to other members of my family it was only playing,when it turned out it was playing with an an arrow like practicing on a war field, I couldn’t hold myself any longer than to go out and call the attention of a head in the community,just then I woke up.

  11. Hi, had a dream last night which I’m puzzled about.
    I was walking to my house and cut through a forest (no forest where I live 🤔) I came across a troop of chimpanzees to my right side they where playing then 1 of them picked up a papaya when he bit into it his hair turned grey, unfazed by this he just sits and eats the fruit. I continue my journey and come across another chimpanzee this 1 is all alone and looks sad (also on my right-side) a voice in my head says “he is old and alone, he is very angry beware” so I keep an eye on him and quickly make my way pass, down a shallow gully, I turn to look and he is watching me with sadness in his eyes. I then keep walking under a stone bridge with the intention to take the next right. At this point I’m awoken from my dream by 3 crashing sounds of metal being hit together. I jump out of bed check the children are OK then check around the house, then I look out the windows, everything appears normal. It was just after 3am when I got back into bed.
    All in all confused a bit, some advice would be greatly appreciated.

  12. I had a dream that I kept seeing chimpanzees either by themselves or in groups of up to three on horseback riding through my neighborhood. the chimpanzees were all in costume trying to disguise themselves as humans. I immediately noticed that they were disguised but I didn’t say anything. I saw them for a couple of days and then all of a sudden the chimpanzees took off that disguises and ended up going throughout the neighborhood gathering women and children. I saw white tents as if they had set up a base camp. I got past them and went to go get my daughter Who was in a different house so that we could be together. we looked out the window and saw that the chimps had lined up all of the women and the children in the streets. blocks and blocks of women and children facing each other as if they were going to square off. what could that of been about ?

  13. I had a dreamt of a chimpanzee or a small ape pouring petrol on a petrol station it was night time can’t see too clearly. Saw a guy ran past me, I ran away too back to my company with was 2 blocks away to warn my dad to run too. But it was tad too late we heard the loud explosion with my office glasses broke into pieces, we were lucky that we are not hurt. So I went out to check on my car which was parked opposite of the petrol station. On my way back I didn’t see any injured man or any people. I saw my car was shift out of place into other people garden and was completely broken down. At this point of time when I turn my sight on the petrol station, there was a giant black spider with striped orange legs crawling out from the ground. I ran when I this, on the (same size like an adult Labrador) way running back to my office I saw a few more of these spiders. There was 1 spider crossing the path that I was running towards, i jumped over it and contiune running, the spiders doesn’t seem like it was chasing after me, they seem more like running for their life. My dreamt ended after i jumped over the spider, please can anyone interpret for me about this dream. Thank you.

    1. It means your spirit animal is likely the spider. The dream wants you to stop running away from your sorrows and angers, and learn to process the emotions fully before moving on. Also, learn to release your worries and fears over to the Universe. Turn to your dad for advice about the future, or plans for the future.

  14. Hi..

    I saw a dream during my afternoon nap where I saw a number of chimpanzees getting trained by 2-3 humans.

    They had made a chain and 1 man used to change his action and rest would follow.

    Was a very pleasant dream however it would be great if someone could help me interpret this.

    Also it started with me followed by a cat having angelic ring over her head and m getting her carefully to my place as she follows.

    Please let me know if you could Interpret anything out of it.

  15. can anyone help me interpreter this dream I had an dream this morning?
    I was crossing road with my office files in my hand which i was trying to protect as it was raining(these files i actually had last night and it was raining as well). Once I crossed the road, i realized that i was to find the residence of my sister with whom i was to stay that night. i left the files somewhere thinking i should first check the house. i entered the gate (this gate was of my own building where i live) i started to walk in but in middle of the night i realized that i should get the files with me back. I went back to place where i left the files. I collected them and went back on the search of the house. i ended up on the roof top of someone’s house. I went downstairs and went out of door. (in dream i knew the name of owner of this house and it was an friend of my sister. i have never met him but heard few things about him). I found some small buildings and I entered one that I knew was of my sister’s. I found the staircase and i started to climb it. but i found a Chimpanzee in between the stair case. He didnt harm me, instead took my hand in his and was stroking my hand and was gentle. Even though of gentleness I wanted to get away from chimp. I saw a man downstairs watching me very uncomfortable with this chimp. i asked him for help. He came and with a stick he started to hurt the chimp. the moment he was to hit the chimp, the chimp turned into a turtle. and the man was very cruel. i wanted him to not hurt it. i extended my arms to him to make him stop. My dream vanished abruptly.

    it will be a great help if anyone can tell me what could all this mean.

    thank you
    H <3

    You can determine your totem animal, firstly you can do a journey with a drum beat and ask to meet them. Is there an animal that has been with you through life that keeps coming to your awareness? A totem animal has been with you since birth – power animals come at times when you need their help and can change regularly.

    It may be possible that the jin have somehow attache themselves to your brother. Is he talented creatively or spiritually? Sleep connects us with the other realm and I am concerned if his attachment to the recharge has been weakened in some way? Has he changed since this experience? Don’t want to frighten you – I had a dark shadow figure show up when I was about five and I became scared of the dark and to enter the dark but I need the dark as I am highly creative so it made me feel fear of my own inner darkness. Hope that makes sense! Maybe they were trying to feed off his energy… sounds fantastical but there are beings and elementals and energy all around us … Archangel Michael is a wonderful protector. Ask for his help.

  17. I made a connection with a chimp at the zoo it came up and put its hand on mine through the glass I was so amazed what was this

  18. I was at a workshop and in a past life guided meditation. I found myself in the body of a chimpanzee! I felt the expansive consciousness of the chimp, especially as I saw two white men approach with rifles. I could clearly see and know their fear and narrow sightedness. I was surprised to find myself in that body. I was in a jungle also. The descriptions of chimpanzee describe me. I try not to beat people over the head with information, but with anecdotes to help lead them to the information. Being white and talking to white people about how easy it is to be white in the world was not easy this week. So, it was a little touchy and I was surprised to find myself in this animal especially since these types of animals have been used as racist slurs. I shared it with the group and the woman leading it told me to write it down. I often check up on animal totems and I’m happy that this one makes sense for me and this specific topic.

  19. Hi, I was wondering what some Raven related instances mean: 1) a Crow was sitting on a fence, with its mouth frozen open, 2 feet in front of my vehicle when I went to get in my car, and I noticed a 2nd Crow on the grass close by preening its left wing.. then 2) a couple of days later there were NO crows around anywhere.. and I usually see them every day in my travels and 3) this was actually something I saw a few weeks ago, but it did puzzle me.. it was the cutest thing ever.. I saw one Raven walking thru a pedestrian walk, between the lines, just like a person would.. I was amazed..

  20. this is extremely helpful, so far i love this site.
    i am curious how you determine your personal totem, and also what is your opinion on seeing an apparition of two chimpanzees with glowing red eyes? not in a dream, or in the forest, i had an experience many years ago witnessing two chimp-like apparitions like shadow people shrouded in a dark smokey fog, one sitting by my brothers feet as he slept, and another nose to nose with him. i yelled out a loud and agressive “HEY!” and their heads snapped in my direction, then as soon as we made eye contact they vanished. i have been looking for explanations or similar experiences for years.
    Also, before this you could slap my brother in the face when he slept, and he would sleep right through it, now you need only say his name and he wakes.

      Hi Jordan, it sounds like you may have seen Gin (Ginis, djin) fire beings… known to Islam and Sufi and maybe Persian peoples… the Gini in the bottle story… GIn… maybe check it out. They may be shapeshifters and disguised their smoke form in a form you would recognise (chimps) rather than being actual chimps… did you feel they were sinister? What is your memory of how they made you feel? I don’t think or understand why genuine chimps would show themselves in this way… hope that might help, cheers…
