Bats In The Belfry: “You can achieve great things”
About Bats In the Belfry: “These companions will teach you how to be upside down in life for a time, to fly against the mainstream views, and to find your way when you can see no way ahead at all. They will assist you in moving far beyond the cares and conditioning that told you to stay enraptured by limiting beliefs, to remain in thrall of your fear of being different. The bats and their astounding skills, sensitivity, and talents will help you to accept that you must begin to live with even more courage, imagination, and boldness – even when you are misunderstood. They will show you how, in time, you will become an inspiration, because you choose to live with valor, excitement, and beauty. The bats’ only question for you now it: “What next!?” With these friends, no fear can approach you.”
Bats In the Belfry Speak: “Others may say you are indeed batty, and this ascendancy has seemed mad even to you at times. The current state has been preceded by a heavy, hurtful climb. Just because no one can quite see how you have made it to the top does not mean you did not have to climb. There was no magical lift, no easy way up – nor did you fly. But you did follow your instincts, and we, the bats, the ones who can see you in the dark, led you to your current home. Now you are here, and so many wonders you can see, and so peaceful and fine it feels to be high above it all. The air is fresh and clean, and you can see just where you need to go in the future. There will be a time to start the next great journey, but for just a moment, take time and enjoy the wind at your back, the incredible views stretching out before you, and the freeing sense of detachment from the cares and woes of all those who said it could never be done, that you did not have the skills, that you could not climb so high. You have.
You have done well. Now take a moment and enjoy the magnificent view and all the wisdom this height can offer you. See the future directions, see where you made what others call mistakes, and see how those below stay stuck. And know you need only ask for our help, especially when the darkness falls, and you will find you way to the beginning of another great journey into places that others say it is not possible to go. It is. you have shown it to be so. Now let us take in this glorious view.”
Divination: “Through the choices you have made, you have managed to actively show that it is possible to do what others once insisted could not be done. You have clearly shown that the miracle that is your life is a result of the decisions you made to no longer be limited by fear and conditioning. You have been so very brave. The choices before you now are expansive. Don’t become too light-headed. Consult yourself and heed the advice of others who have broken free and are flying high. Take the advice of those who have dared to achieve their dreams, not those who suggest you stay safe by never daring to dream at all!”*

Bats message is to see things from a totally different perspective. Just as a few days ago the Hanging Man came to us… upside down. Through the darkness. With your extra sensory perceptions. Feel into it as much as you use your other senses; intuition and instinct are powerful tools for you now.
Scan the energy when you walk into a room. Scan a person to see how their energy is; without absorbing it or trying to “fix” it, just observe. Let your senses tell you if you are being presented the truth or otherwise. Trust that you have the knowledge within you to make the right choices if you follow your heart and do not seek to people please. Be honest and up front about your expectations. Be truthful about who you are and expect that others uphold this truth about themselves. Trust yourself to make decisions “on the fly” without having to ask others for their opinions and advice; seeking only advice from a trusted mentor.
Your world is opening up to you. Dreamtime is vital. You are capable of anything you set you heart and mind to. Get outside at night and enjoy the fresh air, the mystery…
