Monkey Totem

The monkey is represented differently by various cultures. Some cultures consider monkeys to be devilish, whereas other cultures cherish monkeys for their playfulness and imagination.

Everyone has heard the saying See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil that is associated with three monkeys covering their eyes, ears, and mouth. These proverbial monkeys remind us not to listen to or spread rumors, and also not to be so quick to judge the things we see, because things are not always how they seem on the surface. These are good lessons.

Monkey totem teaches us not to rely on the physical senses (sight, sound, and speech) for spiritual truth but to develop our sixth sense of knowing.
