This little creature has the power to sustain fire! Symbolically it is standing tall within the fires of life! As a totem symbol, that runs throughout many cultures, it is a remarkable one! Alchemically it is the power of fiery reactions and used with cool water to make steam!

Welcome to Hudley Flipside’s “The Seminary Of Praying Mantis Publishing.” Praying mantis shows me her story of life, death, and rebirth. For me she is an image or symbol of the divine in all things. I watch the praying mantis in my garden and have taken her image as my logo. She is an amazing little creature, and I relate to her connection to nature. We are both wild and part of this strange world. She is a part of my mythology as I am part of hers.View all of Hudley Flipside's posts.
