Experiences Effect Dream Meanings for Bats
Besides feelings in a dream, your past situations can alter the meaning. The message may link back to that experience fully. Your dream might be about a person who triggers the emotion from that memory. Or issues you’re having today have an aspect of that experience.
The following are three examples of bat memories:
- Jerry got lost in the woods at seven. He spent a scary night alone in a cave where bats were flying in and out.
- Tony’s parents had bat houses in their yard and he loved watching them fly.
- My sister and I were terrified of a bat in the attic when we were children. So we wrote a letter asking him to leave and slipped it under the door.
How could these memories change a dream’s meaning? Here’s another dream example:
Upon opening a window, a bat flies into the room.
Dream Interpretation for Current Life Situations
- Jerry’s marriage is having problems, and his wife wants him to go to therapy. But he’s afraid to go and stays in his man cave.
