Pig-tailed Langur, Simias concolor
In the early summer of 2017 I met a young man. In his facial expressions and his physical expressiveness I immediately noticed a Spirit Animal monkey. As I have already said elsewhere, communication with an Spirit Animal does not take place in the words provided by thinking. It requires an inner silence for me in which the reception of subtle impulses and their insightful translation becomes possible.
Habitat: Mentawei Islands off the west coast of Sumatra
Pig-tailed Langur belong to the family Cercopithecidae, the tribe of Presbytini and the genus Simias. They live in the rainforest as outsider monkeys and are rarely on the ground. They are pure leaf-eaters, prudent eaters, masterful in climbing, with a correspondingly powerfully trained musculature in the upper back.
To get to know the Spirit Animal Pig-tailed Langur I invited him into my world of sensation. I perceived the calm conscious presence of the animal. He loved to look out into the distance and showed me how he was able to maneuver his way through trees. He shook his head, opened his mouth and let out a shout, in a short melodious sequence. He showed me movements with hands and arms, which were always of ethereal character and very fluid. His feet had a skilful life of their own. Again he shouted, shaking his head, dropping and showing me more movements, which I felt very soft and nuanced.
At that moment my cat came into the room and immediately began to purr and sought our proximity. I stroked him, but it was the monkey that made me feel like he was flowing energetically through the cat. I was particularly impressed by the fact that any friction and resistance that was normally caused by the fur, muscles and bones seemed to be eliminated.
The Pig-tailed Lagur feels completely at one with its surroundings. When I began to paint it, we seemed to be surrounded by thick palm leaves that became lighter upwards. His sensibility combined with the element of water circulating in the trees and leaves expressed also in the rainy seasons of his biotope and the near ocean.
I perceived his Third-Eye Chakra like a sensory organ that sat on his forehead and was partly outside of him. This gave me the impression of a “Consciousness of Dawn”, the desire to share spiritual and spiritual wisdom.
But the unrestricted gift that I see connected with this spirit animal lies in its energetic gift. The Pig-Tailed Lagur carries a fiery core in its sensation, which describes creative potential and energetic consciousness and cannot be separated from sexual power, which is female and male at the same time.
Pig-tailed Lagurs show no conspicuous sexual dimorphism between the sexes, female monkeys lead the rather small mixed sex groups on an equal footing. There is no dominant leadership in the species, which is reserved for male animals.
As a supporting Spirit Animal, the Pig-tailed Lagur can call anyone who wants to develop his or her ethereal expressiveness and empathy, as taught in Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Aikido, Acupuncture or Acupressure.
I see a beautiful and rare quality of healing power associated with the Pig-tailed Langur which develops its detoxifying and regulating effects entirely in the flow movements of life energies.
