Yesterday on our way home from New York, we stopped for gas in Seaford, Delaware at a Tru Blu Station. Elliot had just commented on high gas prices as we pulled up to the pump. What a surprise to see this praying mantis waiting patiently by the nozzle. No doubt praying for cheaper gas, too!
In Animal-Speak, the message of the mantis is "Power through Stillness." A great hunter because of its ability for stillness, waiting motionless, blending into its surroundings until the most opportune time to suddenly reach out and grasp it's prey.
If every bug, bird, insect, etc. is on a mission, this one obviously was there for a reason. Maybe a reminder to slow down and stay true blue to our Divine Self, rather than running ourselves ragged, trying to make things happen with the ego.
Wishing you a joyful day with your Angels.
