Bat Meaning, and Messages

The Bat symbolism, in this case, is almost always putting you on notice of a significant change in your life. Explicitly, you must pay attention to the signs that are surrounding you. In this case, these clues could be physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. The Bat meaning signifies the death of some part of you that no longer serves your higher calling. Therefore, like the Zebra, follow through on new ideas, hunches, and even emotions that are unfamiliar to you. In essence, this change may be somewhat painful if you forestall it. However, be aware that if you embrace it, the universe will make every attempt to make these changes as easy as possible for you.

Occasionally like the Blue Jay, the Bat symbolism can be reminding you to continue to pursue your spiritual growth by letting go of your ego. You can do this by renewing your thoughts and beliefs regularly, doing inner work, loving your enemies unconditionally, and nurturing personal growth in all its forms. Furthermore, your Bat meaning is reminding you that if you remain in the present, all things will become clear.

Sometimes Bat symbolism can mean that you are allowing your fears to overwhelm you. The creature is reminding you that you have nothing to fear, but “fear” itself.

Bat Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the Bat totem are generally highly sensitive to, and extremely aware of their surroundings. They have a powerful ability to see through illusions. Also, they tend to dive straight into the heart of matters, are incredibly social, and have strong family ties. For the most part, they are nurturing, have excellent communication skills, and use their sense of touch as part of communicating.

The folks with this totem are also cleverly adaptable. They continuously check everything out for their responsibilities and required resources so that they can be most effective in their day to day lives. Bat spirit animal people are very conscious on a psychic level and are prone to have prophetic dreams. Overall, like the Camel, Bat totem folks are also highly adaptable to any situation in which they find themselves. Those of you with the “flying fox” spirit animal totem of this species should also study the Fox.

Bat Dream Interpretation

Similar to above, a Bat dream can be a symbol of rebirth and unrealized potential. The vision is letting you know that the current path you are on is not very compatible with your new growth and new goals. Furthermore, it may also be a message that you are blindly entering some unknown situation or deal. In other words, you need to evaluate the facts more carefully.

Then again, to see this mammal in your dream can represent uncleanness, personal demons, and or annoyances. You must take the time to allow yourself to let go of old habits.

A white Bat dream may signify the death of a family member, or the transformation of family members addiction. If the mammal is black, it may be an omen of personal disaster. When the species is a vampire, it is usually symbolic of something in your life that is draining you of your self-confidence, your energy, and your resources. In Chinese folklore, seeing five of these creatures in your dream is a symbol of good health, happiness, longevity, peace, and wealth.

Occasionally, the dream may also be a pun on feeling “Batty” or feeling crazy. The vision may also portend a crisis within your immediate family. The emphasis is that it may fall on your shoulders to sort it out.

  • I don't know what, or why. But what drew me to this page is because I seen what I could only describe as a Bat after spirit aka Bat Ghost. I was outside in my backyard just about to turn the day sky into full night, All the sudden I see this white object over my houses rooff, then it turned whatever it was which if it wasn't alive but if it was I could only describe it as a head, turned it to me and shreeked a very strange bat sonar noise, it flew in a straight line with a slight arc down, and at this point It was so fast I would of thought it was a shooting star, but it saw me notice it and knew I seen it and wanted me to not be mis confused on what it was, thts it it made the Shreek noise that I can only describe as if I spoke bat language said "Yea that's right, you're seeing something and it's not a shooting star, I'm here. The strange thing was I didn't see it flap its wings and go up and down as often a bat does. It was also ghostly death grey white. But the strangest thing I seen that happened the other night was... it started off at left front corner of my house just appearing out of nowhere, when it went in a straight line and was just about to fly over my home's roof diagnally, I'm expecting to still keep following it with my eyes, but no POoof, gone disappeared. This was to the point I yelled and a neighbor heard the bat shreek.

    I have severe trauma, and a personal belief is people that have severe trauma like no other on earth that it's within this persons brain to work on a certain Kilahertz level, it's more wired up than the normal person and their brain like mine works a lot faster at a higher rpm. Now if Ghosts are real which I believe them to be, and if what they are is generally understood they are a spirit right? Well that means they can travel literally within less than a milisecond, if a spirit is what powers this body a thought is very fast and thats what I believe them to be.

    Now the concluson. From my traumas I was given gifts like fast hand eye coordination the plan when I was younger was to in fact get in NFL as receiver. With this said I believe only certain people can see ghosts due to these Traumas and even some people born that way, that these people like myself their brains working fast enough can see and catch what others cant.... My overall personal belief is that they're here but can move so fast we can't see them, kind of like how a fan we plugin oscilates and spins so fast we can see through to the other side past the fan Pedals... And now the final belief. I believe if you have the gift to see a ghost ever not everyone can, and if infact you see one they purposely slow themselves down to where they're oscilating at our perception. And if you see one they absolutely meant that to happen.

    Alls I know the very same day in my house a 2.5 filled Gallon of Water with a spicket was pushed all the way back to the wall and my house is on even ground, and it was sitting on a kitchen counter that's almost 3 feet wide. When I was home alone that very same day it fell off the counter.......
    This thing didn't seem to like me and knew I would be not shocked but surprised I believe the mischevious you could say "bad" ones feed and thrive off the fear and emotion. I'm debating sharing this story on my news website.

    • When it comes to ghosts, know that ghosts or spirits can take any form they want. A human might simply take the form of a bat, for example, if they prefer it. This may simply be them trying to show a symbolic meaning to how they are themselves. I say bats may have a negative image in their interpretation, even if they are not necessarily so in real life, though at the same time, a bat is not exactly the most dangerous thing to encounter. It is scary, yes, but not really the scariest thing in the world, so this seems to suggest that the ghost may be mildly problematic or obnoxious in his/her life, but not necessarily dangerous. I say considering it's just that, and from what my gut feeling says, it's just best to pray that the ghost pass on to the other side already. For all you know, it could be someone who died as an immature teenager or something like that.

  • Dreamed a bat was flying around my pregnant daughter and landed on her a few times. We were just in a room talking and neither one of us were concerned or upset about the bat. ??? I haven't seen a bat recently or anything so just wondering if anyone has any ideas about a meaning. Love this site and refer to it often. Thanks

    • Well, despite the bat's association with being scary, bats are very nurturing, and have strong social and family ties. It might simply mean good news in the area of family soon enough.

  • My husband took his life 5/6/2019 after a long painful ordeal with Lyme disease. A year before he left he was bitten by a bat and he received rabies treatment. Interestingly the immunoglobulin/rabies series he received caused a brief and significant interruption of his pain and fatigue. We were hopeful the dr.s would realize perhaps immunotherapy could help but the dr.s did not take us seriously and explore that avenue. He left one year later and I felt cheated by the lack of medical closure. I cried for weeks because I had researched tirelessly to find the answers while he was still alive the medical community was not providing. The lack of closure for me was heartbreaking. Soon after he left I found a dead bat in my living room. Could it be he was sending me a sign that we were on the right track medically? Was he perhaps gifting me with the closure I desperately desired and was unable to get? In my heart I think I already know it to be true.

  • I found a common bat in my bed today. Seemed healthy enough, I caught it in a towel and gently let it go on our 2nd story porch since I know a bat needs a drop to be able to fly. Anyway, wondering if there is a specific meaning to finding a bat in your bed. I had been to town and come back before I found it there, honestly no clue if the bat was in my bed when I got up. I have no bites anywhere on me. (Looked very closely just to be sure I don't need any shots)

    Anyway, its not every day you find a bat in your bed, so I just wanted to see if it is a message I need to be aware of.

    • Question too you: Has there been any mystical changes within the last year. I have recently encountered a young, grounded bat last Friday evening, while doing a solitary walk in a park. It looked at me while moving its mouth as though trying to talk or give me a message. I did google for bat symbolism and found your postdated at about the same sequence a year apart. I would like to compare post-findings, if interested. My interpretation to such events is a cosmic/eternal alignment as guides.

  • I dreamed I was in a beautiful garden with my ex from 16 years ago. We have been in contact and both dreamed of each other. He is happily married now. I asked him to block me in real life and he did. In the dream we were working in the garden. It was because and safe. He was building something on the back of a pickup I was working in the soil. I went over to him and we hugged. He sang about the moon. Then we found a horrible ugly mouse type of thing. Neither of us could kill it. My cat and dog wouldn’t kill it. So we took it and nurtured it. I broke into my childhood home and stole fruit for it. It turned into a beautiful white bat. Huge with sparkling wings and beautiful eyes. It had a peaceful presence. He built a kind of shelter for it. We were happy and blissful. A few days later I text him xx and he has unblocked me. It’s difficult as our conversation goes in circles and it’s like picking scabs of old wounds. Today is 1st of May and he has said to stop texting as he wants me to be happy. I am trying not to text. I know there’s no going back but the dream was on a different level. I know we are not going to be together but I NEED to know the meaning . Any thoughts?

    • Hey Annie, I know what it's like to have an ex and want to contact him. I was with mine for 10 years and we had a very bad break up. The bat symbolizes death and rebirth. In order to let love in and start a new life, you must let this part relationship die. You continue returning to it because you remember some of the wonderful things that happened between the two of you. But it did not work out and now your job is to come to accept this as a fact. Accept the pain, the loss-- on your own (or with help from friends). Your ex is not your friend. Let him go, so you can make space for a new and more fulfilling love in your life. i hope this helps you, Annie. Mercury Retrograde is completed and you'll have an easier time to continue moving forward to a brighter future.

  • Namaste, I am a solo traveler and I have this unique connection with the bats, that wherever I go..they come around me..flying..I hear there voices very clearly. I explore places in the nature and after the sunset when I look up, I see all sized bats around. I have been noticing this, for more than a year..since I was followed by a bat in a local abandoned park where I used to smoke up with the friends. And that experience was very frightening but ever since then, I m not fearful to them. But I need to understand the deeper meaning behind. I stay grounded mostly, my third eye chakra also is very active and I can feel the vibrations. Wherever I may go, birds come around very easily..and animals also love to be around and are comfortable. I'm on my spiritual journey, but just to understand better with the signs that universe shows me everyday.. I'm asking about bats, bcuz in the dark..they are the significant beings that come around. Recently, I spent a night in an ancient cave which was full of bats. Nothing to be feared of course, and surely there's a deeper connection..that I'm eager to understand and make the changes I need to make. Thanks

  • Today i found a bat, size around one n half inch crouching on the floor outside of my apartment door step. The bat seem frightening and weak that unable to make a fly. Since I going out to buy some food, i also buy a coconut to try feed the bat. Unfortunately, the bat not eathing or drinking either. Just felt that the bat need some help. I bring it to home and shelter it for a while, it seem more likely the bat starting to drink water and fed with milk. I dunno what to do next, should observe the bat recovery being better to release back or should i release her now?

  • I'm so sad today. I took care of a baby bat that fell a few feet from me. A few days old or newborn perhaps (eyes not opened yet).. very tiny, the size of my thumb. I took care of it for almost a week and today it died. And I think it's my fault . I think I was rough because I didn't bring my glasses when I fed it . I have been crying. I named it Max. Years ago, there was 1 bat (same house ) that used to follow me in the weirdest way. Anyway, I haven't buried Max yet. I'm too sad to do so.

    • Try not to be too hard on yourself and try to look at this from a different perspective. That tiny little creature landed literally on your door step. He or she could've already began the dying process and found it's way to you for love, care and compassion in its last few days. You took care of him, gave him food, comfort and shelter. Please forgive yourself and see that you're a very caring person, I can see that. Thank you for taking care of him and loving him while he was here. That's a very special thing you did.

  • So around midnight, I went outside and sat on my porch. While I was out there I heard loud screeching above me, I looked up and saw two white(possibly albino) bats seemingly colide into each other before they each flew their own way. I found it odd because it's freezing cold outside and we rarely see bats where I live.
    Does anyone have any idea as to what that could mean?

    • It means change, depending on cultural wisdom. It is a white light reminding you of symbolization, Inner depth, intuition, journying, LOVE, sound transitoning the bad to the good.. says:

      If you ever want to know how the species of our land existence to always remember the feeling vibe upon seeing it and the coulture where you should seek. Remember the Earth was recreated through God. There is the quantum physics the Universe first.
      The PowerPoint is within you. Only you know your current situation in that particular term of life. It will either guide you to light from within Unconditional love and forgiveness. Or keep you in the dark it is for you to be able to make the changes you need..

  • Great change has come into my life. I walked away from my house to get rid of my ex that wouldn't leave after a 10 year relationship had ended, and am now engaged to a wonderful woman. I find myself worrying that so much change happened so fast, and even tho I've never been happier I wonder if I'm making the right decision. So I asked for a sign. A few hours later I'm driving down the interstate in a busy city in the middle of the day and a giant bat flys straight down the road just inches above my windshield and looks right at me, not the least bit afraid of all the cars. Just like anybody else traveling down the road. And then it was gone.
