Healing Action: Focus. Clarify your attention and intention. Dispel confusion. Be ready to act.
The Prayer of Praying Mantis
Combine the stillness of meditation
with clarity of purpose.
Praying Mantis instructs us in mastery
over our base instincts.
It lives in stillness – the keen observer.
It waits with precision until the exact time
when action will produce the desired results.
Cease all action that is without purpose.
Still the mind and consciously
become an instrument that spirit moves through
Focus all energies on the truth of your being.
There is no fear,
except that which you allow to exist.
For best results, gaze softly at the Circle both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the communication is more complete.
Intuitive Learning Circles help you access your inner guidance, identify problems and make proactive changes. Simply relax and gaze at the Circles while contemplating its message and positive affirmations. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek.
Further Exploration into Praying Mantis Medicine:
The medicine of Praying Mantis suggests that you’re being impulsive and would do well to center yourself before taking action. Your focus is off or distracted. Gaze softly at the Circle and consciously focus on what matters now.
Perhaps you are pushing yourself to get something done, however, it is not necessary and may cause you trouble in the long run.
Take a deep breath and ask your heart as you look at the Circle: “What is the reason for pushing myself?” Then hand it over to your Higher Power. Ask to be aligned with that Higher Power, which is your Source. Once you have done this you can inspire others to do the same.
You are trying to do it all yourself, causing exhaustion and burnout. Hand over some parts of the process to others who can assist. Relationship to oneself and others is about the process of creating together, not an ego-driven goal like money, fame or popularity. Align your purpose with your Source and answers will come.
