Myth Buster 4: Bats Brings Bad Luck!

Published February 20, 2012 by jptan2012

Most people are afraid of bats, well, who can blame them bats indeed look quite scary. I personally am afraid of bats. Traveled once to Bohol and entered a bat cave and they’re really quite scary not to mention smelly!

However, bats are actually one of the most auspicious creatures! If a bat enters your house, it is a sign that something good is about to happen. If you are currently experiencing some misfortune, and a bat enters into your room or your house, or even if a bat appears on your window it’s a sure sign that something good is about to happen.

If you see a flock of flying bats, that’s a sign, that extreme windfall luck is about to happen. If a set of blocks went to live in a section of your house, that’s a sign that you’ll have continues luck.

If they went to the East side of your house or property that means you and your family will enjoy health luck and good family life. On the West, you’ll enjoy good descendant luck, one of the favored luck amongst Chinese. If they fly in to the South, your family or the head of the family will enjoy some fame and recognition luck. On the North, all members of the family will enjoy good career luck. In the Southeast, it means that the family will enjoy financial stability and may even be really rich. It The Southwest, will indicate the couples who stay in the house will have more love for each other. If a bat or bats went to stay in the Northeast, it means that the children in the house will do well in school. Lastly, if they in the Northwest, it means the father of the house will enjoy a good life.

When I went Bohol last year, I met this guy whose has tree full of bats. He was quite famous there because the locals actually believed that his property is haunted that’s why the bats went to stay there. This guy doesn’t believe in Feng Shui, but when I asked him why hasn’t he driven all the bats away. He shared that he believes that the bats has given him wealth luck. In fact, he now has a resort, and a lot of other properties since the bats have stayed in his property.

There’s nothing like having the real thing, but don’t ever cage a bat, because it will be bad luck. You can simulate this by inviting auspicious images of bat into your house. A bat with a wealth coin signifies wealth luck. Wearing a 5-Bat DZI will bring blessings and protect you from negative chi!

So the next time you see a bat don’t be afraid, instead, be thankful!

  • two bats entered my house… i live in india and people say that it get’s bad luck and death!!

  • Sorry for the late reply. It is actually very lucky to have bats enter your house. I know some people associate it with bad luck and death, but in Feng shui it’s actually quite a good sign. There’s actually a story behind that which I plan to write about in one of my future posts. But in summary, it’s because of an incident that happened a long time about a ruler who had his downfall when bats started to live in his court. He soon died of an ‘unexplainable’ disease. But the truth is, his court is the center of power of the country not just of the said ruler. He was a dictator and tyrant and a bad ruler. While the bats became bad for him, the demise of his power was a good thing for his constituents. However, given that he was such a powerful ruler, people associated his downfall with the bats. But if you look at the bigger picture it was good for the majority.

  • 1 week ago one bat have enter in my house but yesterday the bat died hit by fan . Its that good or bad .

  • It’ll be hard for me to give an intelligent and informed comment base on the limited information that you just shared. However, it could mean that the bat has absorbed bad chi or luck (most likely financial). Meaning, the bad could have saved you from bad luck.

  • but some bat live out of my house, inside the meter box .its that good or bad .Pls reply to me some details . Tq

  • I was alone at home around 8 pm and a bat entered my home (probably from the wnidow facing the south. I was terrified and ran out of y home in my night dress. i ran up the stairs and the bat folowed me. I then ran down, locked my door and closed all my windows.

    How I wish that you didn’t do that, because a bat is a sign that something good is about to happen.

  • A bat brings good luck or good news. When a bat enters your house it means something good is going to happen. If you are currently experiencing some bad luck it means that your luck is about to change soon. But if everything is well and good it only means that more good things are about to come. I wish you didn’t hit it with a broom.

  • Hi,
    We have a small group of bats that are roosting inside our south facing roof eves. We were going to seal up where they enter after they leave for the night as there are plenty good roosting places near by.

    Is this a good idea.

  • Please don’t get scared whenever BAT comes into your house / office, this bird is a Fortune-Bringer…

    Let me share my experience, I have observed that whenever bat enters into our house, it actually enters because we keep our lights ON (as we live in the city), and then after shutting down lights it never goes out for some time. But this bird is really harmless it doesn’t harm, bite or do any kind of problem for anyone, if you observe very closely, that it never touches you, though it fly around you. So my humble request… please don’t kill this bird, and if your ceiling fans are ON then please shutdown, and let this poor fellow go out from open window or door.

    Regarding fortune if we talk, then I strongly believe that it brings very good fortune in all ways, in my personal experience, whenever this bird entered in my house (I stay in Mumbai) then in coming days I and my family got something rewarding as mentioned by JPTAN2012…I will call this bird as Fortune-Bringer.

    Thanks JPTAN2012 for giving me more knowledge regarding bat.

  • Hi!

    Last night a bad came into the window of my bedroom. At first, I thought it was a bird but was afraid so I hid under the blankets, poked my head out to see it was flying around in all directions. It would disappear to go South for while and then come back where I can see it and near me… almost dropping down onto me a few times which led me to cover myself completely and just look at it from a tiny part in my blanket. Eventually, I fell asleep. I left the window open all night so that it could get out when it wanted to and it’s now the next day and it’s gone ( I think/hope – Eek!).

    Is this a good or bad sign? What do you think?

  • Hai, everyday bats came and hang itself with its legs in my room’s window. i mean maybe they’re sleeping but at night they dissapear and the next morning they came sometimes they’re one bats and sometimes they’re two. It already happens like 1 year but nothing happens what is that mean?

  • Somehow at 3AM at bat came to my house, I have no clue all doors and windows were locked after 9pm… Eventually at 3:30 I was able to get it out of my house through the windows without harming it. Is that bad or good?

  • A bat entered my room on the SouthEast side. I don’t even know how it got there as all my windows are closed, screened and grilled. No chance of even an insect to pass through. In any case, I allowed it to fly circular around my room and then it went to our living room with my room open and finally it went to the kitchen and we led it out the backdoor, south.

    Am I supposed to expect anything out of that?
