Today’s Note to Self ~Remember today, that sometimes the greatest gift I can give myself, is time to rest in the stillness, and listen to the still small voice within~
Spiritual Awakening through the visit from a praying mantis!
I dropped Bill off to work and then headed home with a mile long ‘to do’ list running around in my head! This last week, life has been sooo busy, and there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to get done what I think must be done! Well, I had a special visitor awaiting my arrival home. She was resting and waiting patiently right beside the front door handle, so there was no way of missing her as I placed the key in the door. “Mantis” is the Greek word for “prophet” or “seer,” a being with spiritual or mystical powers, so when a praying mantis drops in for a visit, I certainly take notice of the message she brings!
Now, I know that a praying mantis symbolises different things for different people, but the message she brought to me today was as clear as day … not everything has to be accomplished today! Stop rushing around in a frenzy of work, slow down, and take time to rest in the stillness! I had flooded my life with so much noisy activity, that I could no longer hear that still, small voice guiding my journey. My life out of balance? It certainly was, and I needed to take the necessary action … kettle on, cuppa, time in the garden under my favourite old tree… aahhhh!!! How sweet it is … and yes, I am listening!
Message from Nature Spirits:
We are asking you today to allow that essence of your being, your spiritual self, to always be the one who is controlling and guiding your journey, and not get caught up in what your human side sees as great importance. Guiding messages are brought to you by Spirit in such beautiful and unique ways that you might open your eyes and ears to the message you need to hear. In this instance, your courier has arrived in the form of a beautiful praying mantis.
The praying mantis is reminding you of the importance of stillness, quiet, calm, patience and balance. The praying mantis works with what we Nature Spirits call ‘spirit guided action’ … not the running around in a frenzy action that you have been doing of late! No, the praying mantis sits quietly and patiently, and with the understanding that by resting in the stillness, she will be guided, at the perfect time, and in the perfect ways to take appropriate action. It is in that precious stillness that you are given clear instructions on what steps you must take to get to your goal in the shortest possible time … now, wouldn’t that be worth the patience and the listening? We hope your answer has been a resounding, YES!Tweet
