A bat is a nocturnal flying mammal that relies on echolocation. In today’s society, bats often have a negative connotation and refer to Halloween or witchcraft.
Positive: Seeing a bat in your dream may represent one with a keen eye and one who can pay attention to detail. Seeing bats fly away could represent deliverance.
Negative: Dreaming of a bat could symbolize a night-dweller, thought to suck blood, unclean, or a flying creature often related to witchcraft and vampires. It could also represent an unclean spirit or demonic activity.
