Chimpanzee Dreams

You might be surprised why this wild ape that only inhabits the vast jungles of Africa randomly appeared in your dream. Chimpanzees are rare symbolic images that show up for a specific reason during a particularity time in one’s life.

While monkeys are generally are seen as symbols of happiness, immaturity and bad behaviour; Chimpanzees however are often associated with communication, family and our primate instincts and behaviors.

Chimpanzee Dream Meaning

In fact humans are extremely close to the chimpanzee that we share close to 95 – 98 percent of our DNA with them. If you sit down and observe them you will notice that we both use tools to achieve our goals, laugh between each other and of course are very social.

We must approach the chimpanzee in our dreams as something that is similar to us but not as refined – the primate side, something that is not fully refined. The chimpanzee will displays itself in a manner that will determine if it comes as a guide or an unconscious problem.

Chimpanzee Symbolism:

  • Divine connection,
  • Language and communication,
  • Intuition (grounded in the earth),
  • Power and flexibility,
  • Wisdom and intelligence,
  • Aggressive and powerful;
  • Societal complexity.

Chimpanzee Dreams: Chimp Off The Old Block

Since dreams like to use metaphors to relay messages we can investigate the chimps behaviors and see it if mirrors some of our unconscious instincts. If we are not consciously aware of these behaviors the chimp may become aggressive, where as being in compliance with it the chimp might be loyal or friendly to you.

The chimp can mirror our innate hard-wire behaviour that we often mask or rejected by our personality. The chimp might reflect our sexual urges, need to procreate, violent tendencies, greed, protect; to hunt, feed and provide.

Chimpanzee Attack Dreams

A chimpanzee attack in our dream represents your repressed instincts and behaviors as they are not recognized. They attack you only when you are unable to control these animalistic behaviours within.

Noticing a baby chimp in your dream represents development or an understanding to your primate or instinctual side. How did the baby react with you?

Fun Fact:

The oldest recorded chimpanzee was Little Mamma, a captive female who was between 76 to 82 years old when she died in 2017.

Chimpanzee Dreams: Communication & Behaviors

Could the chimpanzee reflect how you interact in small and social groups? Since they are known to spend most of their times in communities and family what does that mean to you? Could the chimp be your unrefined nature in social groups?

The loud call or screech brings your attention to communication, a possible inability to vent its inner primitive feelings, needs and possibly danger.

Hi I saw the skull of a chimpanzee transform into a full chimp. It started with the left tooth of the skull without any form of flesh on it and it quickly transformed into a full beautiful chimp or monkey most likely the same thing. It was a daydream tho.

I had a dream where I was in a place full of caged chimpanzees. I felt I was going to be stuck and I wanted a way out but there was a little one which wasn’t paying attention. It wasn’t comfortable it was sweaty trying to cool it self what does that mean?

I had a dream of seeing a chimp swinging on a swing above me. It was in a garden. Then I dreamt that a man about to take a long trip gave his caged chimp the keys to the it’s cage. He told that chimp to feed the other caged chimp. But the keys were slipped back into the man’s pocket and he realized only after stepping off the train at his destination. I woke before I could find out if went back.

I had a dream a monkey (a chimpanzee) came down out of a tree and handed me a fig. The feeling was kindness and genuine sharing of a favorite, even treasured, fruit.
