Chimpanzee Symbolism & Meaning

Chimpanzee often appears as a Spirit Animal guide when you are struggling with getting your ideas or a point across. It’s like you’re talking a different language. Chimp Spirit reminds you that there are other ways of peeling the proverbial banana. You need to find common ground and start there. Pay attention to other’s feelings in this matter. Use words they understand easily (this isn’t the time to get out your Thesaurus). Try the subtle approach and build from there.

The second lesson from Chimpanzee is getting a handle on your place in things. That old question of “why am I here” often comes to us at critical moments in life. But your answer doesn’t just lie with you. What is your role at home? At work? In your social circle? These different spaces and people all impact the answer to that question. Chimpanzee can walk you through the process of seeing things clearly.

Third, Chimpanzee may sense that people are exploiting you in some manner; this happens to kind-hearted souls who want nothing more than to help. Unfortunately, some people see this as a weakness and use it for personal gain. Chimpanzee Animal Spirit says: “Set your boundaries.” Mark a clear line in the sand. If it means backing off from a person or a situation, do so; you deserve better.

If you feel that the Bonobo has come to you, that signals a time to reconnect with the Sacred Feminine. Each of us has aspects of male and female energy within us. The Bonobo walks with women leaders, teachers, healers. If you are a woman, are you being called into a leadership role?

Those embarking on herbal studies may attract the attention of Chimpanzee Animal Spirit; this is an excellent helpmate for those efforts.

People who have trouble expressing emotions may discover Chimpanzee trying to get their attention. It’s important not only to recognize how you feel but also share it, particularly in relationships. You can’t expect people to fix something if they don’t know it’s broken.

Finally, Chimpanzee may be telling you to loosen up a bit. If you are working long, hard hours it’s time to take a break and swing from the trees for a while. Express yourself! Find your whimsy and let that rejuvenate your spirit.

Far Eastern Chimpanzee Symbolic Meanings

While often thought of as a monkey, Chimpanzees are small apes. In Japan, the Chimpanzee was a common creature seen roaming through ancient villages. The urbanization of the country has since caused these occurrences to cease, but the Chimpanzee remains deeply symbolic. In the 8th century BCE, chimpanzees were considered a mediators between humans and the gods. But, five centuries later, the same animal was seen as a trouble-stirring trickster with mischievous qualities. In the 17th century, chimps were seen as mimicking creatures who copied the behavior of humans or other creatures. It was around the same time chimpanzees were seen as creatures who symbolized the darker side of human nature and the bad habits or characteristics of humans.
