Praying Mantis Spirit Animal

Usually the Praying Mantis makes an appearance when we’ve flooded our lives with so much business, activity, or chaos that we can no longer hear the still, small voice within us. Taking a step back and finding time for meditation is in order here. The external clamor we’ve created needs to be quieted so that we can come back to our own truth. The Praying Mantis always comes to us when we need peace, quiet and calm in our lives.

An appearance from the Mantis may also be a sign for you to be more mindful of the choices you are making and confirm that these choices are congruent. Praying Mantis reminds you to have patience with yourself, and with growing your wisdom. It also reminds you to have patience in acquiring what you want. When a Praying Mantis strikes too soon, its prey gets away. When your timing is off, you may create unnecessary struggle or blow an opportunity completely. When you are still, you can hear that inner knowingness that has impeccable timing. Be still and listen with openness, not fear. That’s when wisdom will emerge.

To be distracted and confused can create so much chaos that you will destroy the valuable boundaries and foundations you have put into careful place. We have a choice. Confusion clouds our thinking and distracts our intuition, causing us to choose badly. Follow the shown path, receive what feels right and do it as it is. With love, patience, devotion and understanding new messages will arise and life will begin to open up like the clouds in the sky to reveal the sun that lights your intuition.

Spirit Praying Mantis

Invisible leaf that resides among one billion
Reminding us at will to stand still
The constant battle that our lifetimes can create
Aren’t always open to agree or negotiate
Much like your nymphs we are like children
Crying in obstinance “Deliver us from evil!” with your grace

Teach us to draw upon our powers
Guide us to step down from our towers
Open up our ignorance to unlimited dimensions
Of consciousness and gentle contemplation
As we align our will with God
Spirit Mantis instruct our inner faith

Enabling our prophecy of strength and ancient peace
Bringing forth the song that sings and dreams
Of loving life force in between us, every soul
Survival’s toll is not just individual
Calm as can be to walk on water and to believe
That every son and every daughter has a place

Look into the eyes of praying mantis
Observe the way her clever stance is
Like a meditation pose and prayer-like dance
He is our guide to quietly reside inside
The home our heart protectively shares and confides
A safety zone, a loving tone, and glowing space

As I kneel, as we pose, as we pray for all of those
Who cannot hear or see the beauty you bestow
Spirit guide us, please un-divide us
Show us your tranquil meditative flow
And in this may we hear what we behold
Will allow comfort to become the world we know
