March 1, 2016 Totem Card of the Day – Praying Mantis

card 37 Praying Mantis 1122
The Praying Mantis boldly yells, “SLOW DOWN!!!! Take a breathe and relax so that the positives that are meant to be on your paths are visible to you and can be utilized!” We need to slow our pace in order to honor the spiritual, All that is Sacred. To be grateful for what we have…and release the greed that drives the wants. When we begin to walk in balance with the world, the wants and desires will be attracted to our own Hoops in a healthy manner!

But we first need to respect the process of being. We are but one small piece of a universal puzzle. There is no easy button, no magic wand to make dreams come true. There is only the relationship we have with life itself, and in order to manifest those dreams and desires… we must first honor ourselves and the process in order to invite into our lives those very positives. If you seem to have too many negatives in your life, then look into the mirror and see what we are reflecting outward. If what you see is not what is desired…than work on upgrading the image.

Praying Mantis shares that we have gotten lost in the daily activity and chaos of our own lives. That we have forgotten to listen to our own voice. With that said it is time to take a step back and breathe in the 7 Sacred breathes. Reground, replenish what we have given away to this moment. Possibly do some simple meditation to recenter ourselves and remember our true self, our true path.

Take a moment and breathe, look at all that is Sacred around us. the beauty of even the simplest thing or thought. Time to contemplate before stepping back into life. By doing this you will rekindle the purpose and meaning that are needed at this time. Praying Mantis teaches us to return to the core of who we are born as. To step on our path with thoughtful placement of how we will imprint ourselves into the world around us. To carefully consider how we will move forward in positives and be prepared to step quickly and decisively when we need to.

It is time to listen to our intuition, do not push it away it has guided you through your life sometimes without us realizing. Trust what you are sensing, what you are feeling and move or stand accordingly to that inner voice.

“I am Dedicated to Educating and sharing the Native culture with the World. It is not enough merely to teach the ways of our Elders. We must honor those traditions by sharing and educating the World. Inspiring others …Inspiring our Youth. Through the Music… the Arts…the stories…”
