To dream of a bat represents confusion, mixed messages, and being emotionally in the dark. You’re being told one thing and seeing the complete opposite. You may feel like a promise made to you never comes true.
A bat may be a sign that are getting involved with something that defies your better judgment. If you are getting signals to be careful it may be best to listen to them. Bats represent your inability to see what’s going on around you with a clear understanding. A bat suggests that you are entering a situation blindly.
Example: A woman dreamed of having to kill bats. In waking life her breast cancer had spread. The bats reflected her need to treat the cancer more aggressively because it wasn’t doing what she expected it to do with her first treatments.
Example 2: A woman dream of seeing a bat. In waking life she was getting mixed signals from a man she liked. She couldn’t tell if he really liked her or not.
Example 3: A man dreamed of seeing a bat flying towards him. In waking life he had escaped a very dangerous situation with organized criminals who were coming after him, but then kept hearing stories about these criminals being in his neighborhood. He couldn’t be certain if he was safe or not.
