MEANING: Rebirth, Initiation, Extra-Sensory Hearing

Bat People are learning to sense their way through the dark, only to come out of the darkness reborn into a “new” person. In the darkness is the “old” self, the “old” habits, and the “old” behaviors. You may have found that if a bat has come before you that you have been going through a dark time in your Life when you “must” let go of who you used to be in order to become who you desire to be.

When Bat Medicine grabs your attention it is asking you to take yourself through a ritualistic rebirth. As a Native American (Cherokee) ritual resonates with my spirit. I’ve taken myself through this ritualistic rebirth after a long-long-term relationship ended. My desire was to change myself and move forward quickly so I would not slip back into an old relationship pattern or behavior. I consistently changed by routine, habits and behaviors for 40 days. My ritual consisted of daily yoga, prayer and meditation, rebirthing and rolfing sessions, colonic irrigations and severe dietary changes for 40 days. Needless to say, I emerged from the darkness without looking back. Considering that the “old patterned relationship” was 12 years long, drastic rebirth was necessary in order to move through the Life change. I WAS GREAT!!!
