These scary creatures of the night from which many tales have been told from generations past. Some find them cute, others found them as pests of the night—but for others they are just a nightmare.
Bats in dreams have many meanings and purposes. Some to guide you, others to warm you of omen to come.In this particular dream, I saw myself bringing food (sweet potato pie) to this friend of mine at his house. As I approached the front door, I felt a foul smell that I couldn't make anything out of it. As soon as I opened the front door, I saw hundreds of black bats coming out like something spook them. Literally, I can say that they “came out as bats out of hell.”
Somehow, their escape didn't took me over, as they all skipped me—as I got some invisible shield that they only can perceive. Through their escape, I can clearly hear their screaming sound that sent chills through my spine. I can smell their stench and felt their warm all around me. Suddenly, right after all the bats were out of the house—here comes my friend running out of the house. I saw him as I have never saw him before. This one was wearing a medium grey suit, with a hot pink shirt and black tie—he even cut his hair real short.
He was anxious and in a hurry—as I asked him where he was going; all it came out of his mouth was “I am late, I have to get out and do something, I have a job interview.”He left me, standing there with the plate of food and drove in his black car, away from the house. I woke up in a sweat, wondering what that dream be about. I felt like it was an omen of some sort but couldn't figure out. I noticed that I was getting late for going to work myself. So I rushed around the house to get ready before heading to work and do my usual commute of one hour towards my job.
During my travel, I noticed that there was icy patches on the road and that the roads were not salted for the heavy commute of the morning. I took precautions, but they were not enough for what I experienced that morning. As I drove, I saw few cars in the ditches while police was trying to assist them. As I finally approach the big city, I was coming down a hill towards a bridge. Suddenly, I noticed a pile of cars crashing among each other due to the icy roads in front of a Harley Davidson Motorcycle Museum’s first entrance. I tried to slow down but it was too late for me, my car was sliding side to side and suddenly it went on spin, turning me over 3 times.
Finally, my auto stopped just feet from a high sidewalk. As I look up who might come to hit me next. I saw that all the cars after me, turned side ways avoiding me—it kind of reminded me the bats of my dream avoiding to crash on me. Ironically, my car stopped right in front of the Harley Davidson museum second entrance just feet from the original pile of cars in the first entrance. As my friend from the dream, he is a Harley mechanic and its fan of this museum as well. It was indeed a bad dream and a bad experience right after. Don’t know if the dream was warning me about the experience right after—or there is more to come with that dream….time will tell indeed.
The bats on dreams can have many meanings, to some they are source of wisdom, to others a warning or omen. Others see them as spiritual totems as others just see them as nasty rats with wings.
For some the bats means rebirth and initiation. Here is few links of what Bats in dreams might means.
Hope these help you to understand these creatures in your dreams.
Love and Light for all of you! Until next time…
