Re: Praying Mantis - What does it Mean?
I thought it was a male priest or something. I've had experience with Mantis ET, so it will probably mean something much different to me, than it does to you.

People have been asking me a lot lately, about my experiences. So, I am just compiling in this thread. Sorry, but there is so much, I think it is just going to be easier to present info this way.

Saw a praying mantis once devour a bumblebee on the grapevine in our backyard. They are fascinating, fearless creatures.
Hmm!!

Re: Praying Mantis - What does it Mean?
As a metaphor the "praying" mantis is a dichotomy -- a play on words. A bug that prays would be a comfort to us. But it is really a preying bug.

That you haven't seen one in years is a warning: Something is coming your way that will appear to be a blessing at first, but is really of danger to you. Be very careful.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 728335


Your insight is rather profound.

Initially, I didn't intend to respond to this thread. However, day before yesterday, a small praying mantis was on the handrail to the back deck. I was just about to let the dog out and noticed the mantis. I had the same question that Winningjob posed in this thread. Then I check online and found the same response that another poster posted. Then when I just returned to this thread and read your response, a strange feeling came over me. Maybe it was the word "warning" stated in your post.

Would you care to elaborate some more?

I'd appreciate it.

Thanks....

Peace

============================================================


For almost all month of October/November 2011, I saw the biggest praying mantis outside my house. I almost got rid of when I was told that they brought good-luck anytime you saw one - because of its scarcity. I called my auntie who also said she just saw one (sick-looking) in her yard (at the same time that I saw it). I made sure that I never stepped on it by accident and let it lingered for as long as wished outside the house. It lingered days and nights, but 2 weeks ago, I realized that it had been caught between the garage door and was dead. The first thing I said to myself was 'I hope this is not a bad sign' because I was 6 months pregnant. For about 3 days, I was scared to sweep it away. On 11/29/2011, went for my regular sonogram only to find out that my baby had passed. I called my auntie who said the praying mantis she'd seen had also dissapeared - all of a sudden. The baby was breech and so could not push. I had a very rough C-Section to get my Angel out.

I started researching the meaning of seeing 'praying mantis' until I came accross this site and reading this quote has made me believe that there is some connection or significance.

Re: Praying Mantis - What does it Mean?
I agree... I think if you see a mantis, it means a warning. II saw one in the middle of my entrance door. My husband said in chinese, it means good luck to see one. Few weeks later, he got hit by a car, but escaped with a broken bone that needed one surgery only. I expected money to come but i got a shocking surprise instead.

I agree with you. After I saw one, I lost my baby a few weeks later. You might be right!

Re: Praying Mantis - What does it Mean?

Just because you "read something somewhere", you think it's true?


You never considered it just happens to look like it's really praying from a human perspective and that's the only reason it was given the name?

chuckle

Of course not.

Everything has to have some strange mystery to it, right?

You are really showing how much you are in need of getting a real life.


(The same can be said about many other regulars who seem to live here too.)


Obviously, the other naive people here will probably feed on your ignorance.


shut the hell up, i can see you live a very dull and spiritless life
