Bat Animal Totem
By Susan Jolley
This animal totem is Bat –Rebirth, Awareness, Keen Observation
Bat helps you to release fear and patterns of behavior and thought that no longer serves your highest good. He signifies that a transformation of your ego self is about to occur, an end of a way of life and the start of another. Fears are like a disease and when permitted to spread unchecked, it can create turmoil in your life. When you face your fears you are reborn without your old identity. You cannot grow spiritually until you let go. Facing the darkness will show you the light in rebirth. Bat will give you the wisdom to make the appropriate changes. Are you ready to face your fears and to experience a rebirth?
Bat has extraordinary auditory perception and is able to navigate through darkness with great ease. His sonar allows him to see what lies beneath the surface. It allows for them to move freely, to completely assess their surroundings and adapt to changes when called upon. He may be telling you to start trusting your intuition, to let it guide you, or to hone in on your clairaudient abilities. Are you aware of your surroundings? Can you see upcoming obstacles and find a path around it? Are you living in the Now?
Crystals that will help you remember the medicine of Bat are:
