Bat (Animal) Dream Interpretation and Meaning


Bat (Animal) Dream Meaning – You may dream of bat when your head and heart are in turmoil causing a sense of total confusion. Have the words you hear not matched people’s actions? Are there promises made never fulfilled? Bat lives in the dark and its message may be that there are things you may not know so defer judgement before making final decisions. Are you making decisions blind to the real truth? Delve deeper to see what may be hidden.

Look at your life to see how bat’s message fits into the essence of your waking life. Consider whether you are getting mixed signals from someone you find attractive, or maybe a terminal illness in remission but bat may signify it needs further treatment. A bat flying into you can be a warning of a close call with danger of some kind.

bat dreamBats are a symbol of shadow and night. They are an emissary of negative portents. They do not represent evil in particular, just that something that we would otherwise not wish upon ourselves is going to happen.

If you see a single bat flying, it represents that something negative, but within your control is approaching. If you dream of a swarm of bats flying, it represents something negative that you cannot change. If your dream is of bats that are not flying, it represents that something negative is going to happen to someone around you, but will not affect you directly.

To see a bat in a dream is to suggest certain dark thoughts and influences that might be coming from our sub conscious mind. You might have some dark feelings that have been bottled up and are trying to come out. A bat will often represent something that is uncleanly, or unholy. Sometimes bats in a dream will represent being re-birthed and discovering your hidden potential.

It may be a sign that you should free yourself of things that are holding you back and search for new opportunity and growth elsewhere. Because blats are blind animals, they can also represent going into a specific situation blindly, without being aware of certain things going on around you. You might want to re-evaluate your life and see if you are making any decisions blindly.

If you see a white bat in your dream it can signify a death of a family member. The black bats can also represent the coming of a disaster into your life.

When Bat crosses your path

Bat quietly hanging in its dark cave gives you a heightened sensitivity to all around you to see straight through any illusions to get to the truth. Your communications skills are exceptional and you are highly intuitive with an innate ability to intuitively understand exactly what is happening and what to do.
