Bat Dream Meanings 325x325

Bat Dreams

Unfortunately, dreams about Bats can be powerful omens of negative energy. But this symbolism is very undeserved and not necessarily accurate when you see Bats in your dreams.

Bats are smart, loving, and wonderful animals who’ve gotten a bad reputation due to silly superstitions and Hollywood. However, Bats are associated with tales of vampires and other demonic entities. Because of this, Bats symbolize being internally (mentally, emotionally and spiritually) ‘unclean’.

Butterfly Dreams 325x325

Butterfly Dreams

Butterfly dream meaning is about being brave enough to dance with epic transformation. It a Butterfly does not emerge from its cocoon, it dies. If Butterflies do not migrate each year, the species dies. Both of these journeys are tremendously hard for such tiny, fragile creatures. Yet their soul insists they must face whatever comes their way.

True transformation takes time. Often, dreams about Butterflies are this animal spirit guide’s way of letting you know that NOW is the time to let your soul emerge, be patient, and you’ll be able to take flight!

    Is there any dragons in this because I dream of dragons fight along side me and I was on a Phoenix the whole fight.

      I am dragon, dragons may also come in form on representing archangels, and of course the Phoenix represents recarnation.

      I hope that helps

    I had my spirit animal dream, but as soon as I awoke, my dream vanished from my memory. Is this bad or good?

    I had a dream where I was part cat, I was cast out from the presence of normal people but I still wanted friends. For some reason my family was not in the dream, I hope you make a part in cats soon.

    I once dreamt about a fox. The dream was like a lost episode of a certain children’s series. The only thing I remembered about the dream someone was killed, there’s a mass killings, in the forest. Then the fox appeared, standing at two feet, then approached the dead bodies. After that, the dream went full screen showing the fox’s face of despair, three times at different angle. I am still disturbed by it, but not much when I woke up from that dream. The dream happened maybe at Janurary to March. I forgot.
