If Bat has swooped across your path;

You have just received a significant omen of change in your life. You are being asked to pay attention to the signs around whether they are physical, mental, emotional and spiritual in nature. Bat is a symbol of the death of some part of you that no longer serves your higher calling. Follow through on new ideas, hunches and even emotions that you are not familiar with. This change may be somewhat painful if you forestall it – however know that if you embrace it the universe will make every attempt to make these changes as easy as possible for you.

Alternatively Bat is reminding you to continue to pursue your spiritual growth by letting go of ego, renewing thoughts and beliefs on a regular basis, doing inner work, loving your enemies the same way you love yourself, and nurturing personal growth in all it’s forms.

If Bat is your Animal Totem;

You are highly sensitive to and extremely aware of your surroundings and have a powerful ability to see through illusions. You tend to dive straight to the heart of matters, are extremely social and have strong family ties. You are nurturing, have good communications skills and use your sense of touch as part of communicating. You are very perceptive on a psychic level and are prone to having prophetic dreams. You are also highly adaptable to any situation you find yourself in.

If Bat has come into your Dream;

To see a Bat in your dream can represent uncleanness, personal demons and or annoyances. Alternatively a Bat in your dream can be a symbol of rebirth and unrealized potential. Allow yourself to let go of old habits. The current path you are on is not very compatible with your new growth and new goals. It may also be a message that you are blindly entering some unknown situation or deal. You need to evaluate the facts more carefully.

To dream of a white Bat may signify the death of a family member. To dream of a black Bat may be an omen of personal disaster. To see a vampire Bat in your dream is usually a symbol of something in your life draining your of self-confidence, your energy, and/or your resources. In Chinese folklore seeing five Bats in your dream is a symbol of good health, happiness, longevity, peace, and wealth

Occasionally the dream may also been a pun on feeling “batty” or feeling crazy.

  • A bat sat on my head tonight around 9 any idea what it means?

  • Bats give me a sense of joy.

    When I was a child, playing outside in the backyard at dusk, I was never fearful of them and actually loved watching them in flight.

    As an adult have I had 2 exceptionally moving experiences with bats.

    The first was at my house. One day I noticed guano on my roofed front entryway. Wondering how it got there I looked up and saw that where the entryway roof met the side of the house there was a muddy looking lump. I didn’t know what it was. I wasn’t worried about it or thinking I needed an exterminator to get rid of whatever it was. I wanted to keep my eye on it. Lo and behold, later that day at dusk, I saw a bat fly out of it. I was so excited to have bats nesting on my house. That nest stayed there for the 15 years I lived there and I loved “MY” bats.

    A few years later, after relocating to another state where all my family lived, my brother introduced me to a friend of his. The friend was complaining about a HUGE population of bats living in his steel building from which he operated a heavy equipment repair shop. I told him that I love bats. He said he had nothing against them but their guano was destroying his shop and his customers’ equipment. He said he was going to have them exterminated. Of course I didn’t want to hear more of that story, but understood his plight. Anyhow, he invited my brother and me to stay for dinner so that at dusk we could watch the bats fly out. IT WAS AMAZING to see HUNDREDS of bats fly straight downward through the corrugated metal roof tunnels and just before hitting the ground flying straight upward and out to begin their nightly hunt. It was such an incredible sight that I was literally crying with joy. The friend invited us to return to see them fly back in. Holy Cow what a sight! it was incredible to see them zoom straight up and into the corrugated tunnels.

    In the UK bats are protected against human extermination. Not so in the US. We have 45 different species, which granted is a lot. Of those 45, 6 are endangered. Bats play a significantly positive role in our ecological system. I Love Bats!

  • They are such a cool spirit animal… I’ve had many visits from bats, in 3 different apartments. I never know how they get in or out, (once I caught and released one, but the rest ???) Just last night there were two that were flying around my room together for hours, then disappeared. Each time they show up is during or before some big transformation, at least spiritually, and during a very spiritually in-tune time of realizations. They bring a sense of wonder and playfulness along with some of the deeper transformational stuff, something lighthearted in the midst of mystery. This time I know there are some big changes coming up, and have feeling lost about where to go, and alone. They’re somehow reassuring to see, though I still feel like I’m operating in the dark by instinct alone… so much thanks to the universe for this visit!
