Spirit of bat speaks to us of transition and of rebirth. A time of leaving the old and waiting for the new to unfold, but don’t despair, a time of waiting is not a waste of time, it is a time of growth, rejuvenation, going within and most of all, of cleansing. Parts of the self that are no longer necessary, no longer suited to the new way of being must be visited, made acquainted with and surrendered so to make way for the new.
Bat medicine is a process of going within and being still with what is.We are the masters of transition of moving from one existence to the next. We are the space and time in-between the change. To some we can be seen as death itself, because there needs to be a dyeing of the old for the new to be born. This rebirth is part of the natural cycle of life in every moment an aspect of life, of you, of us, is dyeing and being reborn.
Yes this occurs with all living beings. This is life itself. The bigger the changes, the bigger the transition and the transformation that follows. The stronger the resistance, the more challenging the death. The true spiritual warrior can be with bat medicine, sit, be still and surrender. To embrace our medicine, is to embrace life, death, and transformation.
We live together in flocks, we stay connected and become as one. We are social creatures and like to be with our kind. We mate seasonally and plenty, always birthing new, literally. Humans are often scared of us, this is ignorance, they have been misinformed of our nature for we seek not disharmony, but now we fear them, for they have harmed us before. We are small vulnerable creatures, and very loving when treated kindly. We are seen by our fellow creatures, those not of our kind as the night birds, different to owl, we don’t see through the dark, we are the dark.
The dark is not to be feared, the dark is to be transformed by the light. In this realm of duality one cannot exist without the other. We are the darkness, the death, the pathway to transformation. We teach you the purpose of death we teach you the beauty of earths natural cycle, transformation and rebirth.
We are the spirit of bat alive and thriving in the woods, the forest and the trees through the night. Each day as we sleep we wrap our selves up in the womb mother and we wake up reborn again. As you experience the new day, we experience the new night. You too can rest in the womb of rebirth and sure enough, in time the light will rise again and the new will be illuminated.
We wish you well in your shifts, moves, and transitions. Call on the bat medicine when the old is holding on and a death of a part of self is required, we will help you. Teach your kind that we are loving beings. We cause no harm, the darkness is not to be feared, death and rebirth is a beautiful and necessary cycle for all life.
