The flying bat is often associated with the devil or vampires, night or death. It is a creature that can see in the dark, lives in caves, and so is an aspect of unconscious inner workings, that go on in the darkness, or the part below our conscious awareness. But it is we who create this fear.
It can therefore represent thoughts or influences emerging from the unconscious, and can be wonderful rather than frightening. Being able to see in the dark – i.e. intuition. A such it can be felt as a fear of the unconscious. As such it can be felt as a fear of the unconscious. See Facing Fear.
The Australian aborigines see the bat as the spirit of death.
Example: I had a dream that I was playing tennis with a friend and suddenly a black bat attack on my neck and bit me and when I look at the ground there are unfamiliar animals that are crawling there and 1 man is sweeping all of the tiny animals. I ran in the house and 1 tiny blue bird follows me and I close the door. In my dream my house don’t have roof and I let the bird fly in the sky and I look at the poor animals being swept outside the gate like a leaves fallen from the tree. They are alive and they can move but it seems like they are afraid of the man. Then I was running outside like I’m playing hide and seek with someone and I enter another house and my relatives are with me and I met a guy inside the house and we went in a room and from window I saw my kids playing outside.
As can be seen from the dream, the bite of the bat brings about an enlargement of her ability to see and appreciate things.
