Allow stillness to feed your creativity. Only in the quiet moments will your ideas gel and take root.-Praying Mantis
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 some simple meditation would be in order here because the external din 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.
You have learned to take your time and live your life at your silent pace. You never make any movement without careful thought or contemplation. You know exactly where you are going and when you will get there. Even within this calm and serene environment you are capable of quick and decisive action when opportunity presents itself.
To dream of Praying Mantis is to understand that your intuition is trying to guide you at this moment. All the gut reactions and instinctual emotions you have been feeling of late are trying to tell you something about the situation you are currently in. Trust your feelings and act appropriately. Retreat, pounce or be pounced on.

We try to answer as many comments as possible – but please be sure you have not already had your answer or that the answer is not in the first paragraph. If your Praying Mantis is dead – consider that the message is in it’s shadow form – in other words exactly opposite to what the message is saying and that you are somehow not accomplishing what it is asking for.
