The Luminous Warrior Journey

Before I begin today’s post, just wanted to share a bit of news. There is a recent press release of my book Spirit and Belief that is thru webwire. You can google me and the book title and scroll to find it. The actual link is on my twitter page but couldn’t get the exact site to post, ugh.,, Anyway– if interested it is titled:“Trusting Your Gut Can Do You Good” and was sent out to various news media along with all the ways my book is available. So super cool! Now let’s get into today’s topic..,

I know another Card Deck has been featured before but stay with me as it connects to Warrior (of course!) These cards are from another Oracle Card Deck I have purchased but there’s always a back story with me so gear up!!

Years ago when watching The Ultimate Warrior character thru my T.V., I always did think he was Native American or at least a little. Sure, the matches and promos were crazy sometimes but I would still wonder based on certain words and actions he took. No, he never wore anything Native besides face paint but talking about the gods, Belief, Warriors, and all that kept sticking with me. One would assume being a warrior he’d have a sword or shield but no… Armor would be hard to take off before a match as well, lol!! ๐Ÿ—ก

Tatanka is a real Native American who as a pro wrestler incorporated much traditional gear into his character so Warrior didn’t use any of that but the thought remained. Who knows exactly? Warrior’s from Indiana, I’m from Ohio and most Native tribes came down from the Great Lakes settling in the surrounding areas now states that border the lakes. Many people forget this and assume they were all originally from the west. Nope, not true. The Eastern settlers forced the Natives out west to inhabit land that had yet to be developed.

The Warrior Family embraced both cultures of New Mexico and Arizona with Native plus Hispanic traditions. I have seen several photos and videos of statues, feathers, and other artifacts adorning Casa de Warrior over the years. People do base their beliefs on areas they dwell and Warrior felt that connection years before his beliefs became his family’s values.

I recently had two people at my Holistic Fair mention the “soul connection” between Warrior and myself. Neither one had glanced at my book or even knew that much about me at all. They sensed it and it makes me feel Ultimate when others acknowledge his impact. I have also had others mention much to me about nature and they just know from looking in my direction how it “fits” for my life.

That brings us back to these cards. I really wanted another one besides Angels and bought two more. This one is called The Mystical Shaman Oracle Card Deck and features many cards like these shown but much with nature, animals, and deeper meanings. There is an accompanying guide book with descriptions. A Shaman is similar in a spiritual way to a medium but they work more closely with ancient rituals, customs, and nature. They believe in using natural remedies to cure illness and practice in many places around the world. It might sound extreme to some but I became very interested after watching a video from the authors of this deck.

Nature has always been an active part of my present life so perhaps Shamanism was in a past life of mine? Some have mentioned that to me as well so I always am open-minded. Many may not believe in past lives or new views but I have become more receptive as my development increases. My feather collection always gets people’s attention at an event and even one man was stunned when seeing my larger ones. He incorporates some aspects of Shamanism with his practice so he brought this more into my awareness.

I will share a few quotes from both of these cards that really wowed me and DID connect to Warrior. They represent my experiences also. Part of “The Journey” card reads:

“The Journey is an invitation to step outside the boundaries of your life as you know it… Fearlessly draw your own navigational charts as you discover the route… Remember that the point of the journey is not the destination; it’s who you will become as you are transformed along the way.”

“The Luminous Warrior” describes that:

“The Luminous Warrior has no enemies in this world or the next… He focuses on his light rather than what hides in the dark. His power comes not from the sword but from speaking his truth at all costs… Find the truth hiding in your heart that will affirm your instinct for peace rather than for war.”

~~~ Remember, this relates to Warrior now I believe in spirit but how perfect as a life lesson. I KNOW this is extremely deep for some of you but really wanted to explore another topic of interest relating to Warrior. Native? I don’t really know but with his beliefs and lifestyle, it always got me thinking. Long before Warrior in my life, Native American culture fascinated me as I remember getting books in the school library and reading all I could. Pioneer stories also impacted me so perhaps these cultures of people influenced my warrior state of mind as a survivor fighting for life and beliefs. I also loved the show Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman but that’s a whole other story!

~~~ Anyways, this is my last post of the year as I have much still to do during this Holiday Season! Please enjoy this time with your loved ones and know that this warrior woman honors all warriors wishing to know more. Perhaps that can be my New Year’s wish for you. KNOW MORE! Find out who you really are and what interests you always! Keep going on your journey and let your own Luminous Warrior guide you towards destiny. โœจโšก๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽ

I H(e)ART Warrior ART

I wanted to discuss Warrior’s art today and how amazing all artists are to me. From drawing to sketching, painting and sculpting, it impresses me all the time. I was spellbound the first time witnessing Warrior make his logo as it was not the way I’d drawn it at all! What a natural talent being able to create something that impacts so many and yet is so simple. I always loved his jackets and the comic book art, not to forget his love of color. My daughter is great at art too- another Gemini trait!

As a child, I must say that art didn’t agree with me. That’s putting it mildly. I realize in school that free art is rarely considered but those “cookie cutter” projects just weren’t for me. My elementary teacher terrified me to the point of faking stomachaches sometimes so I’d stay home from school on art day. I could fool my Mom a little. Am sure the teacher was following a curriculum but your personality still makes a difference, especially to an aspiring child.

If I had to do one more block paper project, I’d scream in class! Let’s not forget all the reprimanding for lack of “perfection.” So glad those days are behind me but the memories always remain. With my children, it’s quite a different story. My eyes well with tears when seeing their art and even those of the kids enrolled in my old elementary school. My kids attend PSR there so I have seen much artwork over the years displayed on the walls. Remember my 7th grade classroom What A Rush story or even The Warrior Book Dream? Those are archived but yep, that’s the school.

I did have to take art in high school as a freshman but so wish now I had taken more. It was very different than anything I ever did before and so much more variety with media. I also did many projects over my years as a preschool teacher and yes, some were “cookie cutter.” I scoffed sometimes but we did have those free art days too. Couldn’t wait to explore all this with my own kids someday. I still have some of their little creations hanging on the attic wall (: My confidence blossomed being able to create and make with the kids while not having a teacher breathing down my neck…

That harbors the question of : “Would I have wanted Warrior as an art teacher?” Yes, he mostly did self-portraits (like all the greats, hehe) and famous men in history but would he ever have been able to teach to let’s say… kids? He was a perfectionist in his own art so that might’ve come out in kids, who knows? If he would’ve approached it the way he did fitness, I’d be in trouble! If he was my high school art teacher— um…. I’d be WAY too distracted or ask for extra help, lol!! ๐Ÿ˜‰Art II was self-portraits!!

All kidding aside, whether one likes his artwork or not and just like his performances as a wrestler, he brought a talent that deserves respect. There will always be those naysayers but we need to appreciate the natural abilities all of us have. Even though art frustrated me as a child, I never quit trying. Just like math thru school. It bothered me that I never could get it “just right” when it shouldn’t be that way. Yes, if you’re making a dog it shouldn’t look like a butterfly but am sure you know what I mean!

I detail a chapter in my book Spirit and Belief called “Creativity is Endless” but I mention how art is just one aspect of being creative. Teachers should look for many other forms of expression from kids that encompasses an art curriculum. My cousin is an elementary art teacher and pursued her passion. The kids love her. I have never read anything about Warrior’s natural artistic talent as a child or even later on in life but perhaps he was self-taught. After all, he epitomized that the best.

I am humbled at all artists talent but really we can be any type of artist we want. It is your interpretation of what fits in your LIFE as part of Warrior’s quote above. I hope you can have appreciation for something in a way like art has been for me. I respect Warrior’s art, my own, my kids, and all artists for doing their own LIFE! โœ๏ธ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–Œโœ‚๏ธ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–Š

โ€œI Canโ€™t Go Anywhere!โ€

Congratulations!

Today is Your Day.

You’re off to Great Places!

You’re off and away!”

~~~“Oh, The Places You’ll Go.”

~~~ Dr. Seuss, 1990. (love that year!)

I just had to quote that ever famous children’s book. Having been a teacher of young kids for years, it was perfect for today’s post. I immediately thought of that story while remembering the places I went that brought Warrior to mind after he passed.

If you recall in other posts, I’ve mentioned how I can’t go anywhere so wanted to share some of those “great places” that made me laugh and smile thinking of Warrior. Some vacation places stories are in my book Spirit and Belief.

Let’s rewind several years back yet again…

I Can’t Go Anywhere

Feeling like I had brain fog was nothing new as the robotic me had to continue doing tasks while still dealing with the shock of his passing. The grocery store gave me that distraction I needed while walking down the frozen food aisle. Music is frequently playing so perhaps you can guess where this is leading… Have any of you seen the animated movie “Sing?” I know, I know… here I go again with a movie reference and another cartoon but they so connect! Anyways, it’s based on the show “American Idol” only with animals.

There’s this Mama Pig Rosita and she easily becomes one of my favorites. She’s shopping one day, hears music in the store, and breaks out some crazy dance moves! The security camera guy is amazed as she is greeted with applause afterwards. She is politely embarrassed but continues shopping. My adventure wasn’t as daring as Rosita’s but I so felt the music and was dancing with my cart just a little.

They usually play country or easy listening but then two songs in a row by Katy Perry. BOTH made me think of Warrior when they were released. “Roar” and “Firework.” How Ultimate! The lyrics also now make me think of me….. I couldn’t help but dance in the store that day as my fog disappeared for the next hour. Two songs by the same artist in a row in a store that doesn’t play music like that. Oh, the Places I Go.

I Can’t Go Anywhere…

The next place was Target but not in the parking lot this time. My son got a gift card for his birthday and wasn’t sure if he still wanted toys or not. He was ten but we looked in that aisle anyway. I had my eyes glued to where he was while knowing the WWE stuff was right across from us. This was early April 2014 so um, not gonna look over there… That wasn’t a problem at all, yay for my heart! We were however in line with electronics and all the giant big screen T.V’s everywhere. Our Ohio baseball team the Cleveland Indians were playing the Toronto Blue Jays in Toronto. Darn, thought I was in the clear with toys and then I saw that. It’s now called Rogers Centre and not Skydome but still… WMVI for anyone wondering! Who would’ve thought a few years later I’d get my first blue jay feather in line with Warrior. Oh, the Places I Go.

I Can’t Go Anywhere…

Onto place number three. This would be a great three count but I do have a four! I went to Five Below working on some Christmas ideas for the kids a few years ago. I then spotted some preteen girls near the displayed posters. How cool to look thru those and maybe see if some would work for my kids. They still hang up posters, right? If you’re not familiar, you just look at them displayed and then match the number to the rolled up ones on the shelf.

I did get my son a Super Mario characters one and my daughter a dog one but not before seeing another one. Any guesses? Nope, not an Ultimate Warrior one, too tempting–lol! It was a classic WWE poster of past and more recent Superstars. Warrior was right there next to Randy, Andre, Jake Roberts, Rick Rude, Bret Hart, Ted DiBiase, The Rock, Steve Austin, Undertaker, Ric Flair, (I think?) and some others. One person absent– Hulk Hogan. Interesting but I sent a pic to my brother yet again with the caption of this post. Oh, the Places I Go.

I Can’t Go Anywhere…

Here’s the last one and it was out of my memory until seeing something that brought it all back. A few Christmases ago, we took the kids to see the movie “Daddy’s Home.” Yes, a few inappropriate parts but they were getting older. We loved it and glad there’s a sequel.

Right away I noticed they said the movie takes place in New Orleans. (Warrior’s HOF induction city, WMXXX) The one count… Next, the family sits around and watches one of their favorite movies together– “The Princess Bride.” Andre the Giant was in that. The two count… Dana has mentioned their family loving that movie too! Then, nothing else for a while as I just kept thinking where that three count would be or even if there would be one.

Shaking my head while laughing to myself was quite common then. The three count came at the end and for all of you who know the movie, can you tell? John Cena appears! Love how he’s in the second one too. I actually laughed a little too loud in the theater while saying his name! My husband said:”Is he a wrestler?” Oops, well– he knows now and John has been involved in several movies. I remembered all this while watching U.W. wrestle Andre on the Ultimate Collection DVD one day. Oh, the Places I Go.

Well, there’s my stories for now and am sure there are others but these along with the Dr. Seuss book remained in my head. Like I’ve said before, it’s the little things and expect the unexpected. Do your life and the “signs” will appear. It could be places, people, or things but just become aware. I am grateful for this journey of mine and Warrior’s everyday. Too many things to not connect and dismiss.

Think of everything you are grateful for as this holiday approaches. Really stop and appreciate all the Universe gives us and say “thanks.” That doesn’t seem enough but it means everything.

Thank you warrior fans for all you do to keep his legacy alive while remaining true to yourself too. Roar, be that firework, dance, sing, play ball, shop, take photos, watch movies, and enjoy the little things. Who knows where you’ll go along the way…

Kid Warrior-isms

Kids do indeed say the darndest things. These fun stories popped in my head as I remembered this date of November 14 and my Toys R Us connection. So sad how those stores closed but grateful my kids enjoyed memories… ๐Ÿฅบ I even had a personal one with Warrior blogged about and also in my book Spirit and Belief. I’ll get to the photo above in a bit..,, Too funny!

So, onto my kids and these sillies that didn’t make it into the book. LOVED writing them all down so I wouldn’t forget and then another one came into memory. I’ll share the ones that REALLY got to me and some more than others.

Remember, most of these occurred shortly after Warrior’s passing and ALL made me laugh. Kids are messengers too and I do believe Warrior sent his energy to them. Way too many to doubt. What to start with? Well, my daughter had much more in her than my son and she is a Gemini like Warrior (remember last week’s post?) Warrior has two daughters so who knows?

She is quite the character herself and not long after Warrior was gone, she started thumping her chest and doing a similar snarl out of the blue. I KNOW– crazy!! I asked her so many times as to why and all she would say is: “Because it’s funny!” It was a brief time but I remembered.

When I was watching the 25th anniversary of WMVI in 2015, my daughter came into the room. It always falls on Spring Break so the kids are home from school then. I fully expected some unusual comments as I had never watched this in front of anyone. I was ready– bring it on girlie! After a few minutes, she asked: “Who’s the old guy with the mustache?” I could’ve answered another way but nicely I said: “Neither of them are old, he just looks that way.” I then was ready yet again for another comment but she didn’t say anything about Warrior. I did tell her how Mommy likes the other guy while chuckling to myself about the “old guy.”

Another time she was on the couch playing with her dolls and then I heard her say in the EXACT way Brother Love did: “I LOOOVE YOU!” (insert accent, he was a spoof of the 80’s televangelists, aka Jim Baker) I couldn’t believe that voice was coming out of her. When I asked about it, she just sorta denied the whole thing and laughed….

Oh this girl. Another funny (some are wrestling related and not necessarily Warrior) was when we attended her Literacy Night together at the elementary school. We were in the cafeteria and they were showing a power point on labeling a diagram. The picture was a gorilla and I whispered while elbowing her: “Hey, it’s your soccer team name!” She looked so confused and scoffed saying: “Um, no–we were the Monsoons, not the Gorillas!” I just started laughing so incredibly hard, she did too and we almost fell off our chairs! People were looking and we pretended to notice something outside. I’m laughing now, such bonding and we weren’t home for this one! Gorilla Monsoon was with the WWE back in the day….

I’ll move on to my son and a few of his moments that made the cut. A few times this happened and it wasn’t wrestling related but very Warrior related. Here’s the photo story….

My boy would just walk into the room where I was sitting and sing: “Firepower!” Whaaaaat??? He’d keep walking like no big deal. Was I imagining? It was inquisition time for sure. The poor kid got so annoyed with Mom’s constant questions! It went something like this:

“Why are you saying that?”

“Where do you know it from?”

“Are kids saying it?”

“Is it in a new video game?”

“Did something go on in school, the bus, a cartoon?”

You name it, I asked it. Finally, he said it would pop in his head and he just knows it. That’s all I ever got out of him and had to accept his answer. Sure, kids say things but this expression was NOT my kid and if he had a logical answer, he’d tell me. For all you confused out there, Firepower was the name of a movie Warrior starred in 1993 in which he was a bad guy named the Swordsman. That photo is of him on the set.

It was just the WAY my son said it in a loud voice and then leaving.., bizarre, funny, and yet totally made me amazed.

He also had this water gun called “Warrior Web Ultimate Outlaws” (I think that was it) and hard to believe both words on that. Ah, kids toys. It was always very temperamental and I seemed to be the only one who could get it to work. Kinda ironic, isn’t it?

Both kids would sing: “Macho Man” randomly sometimes around the house while walking around or playing. I might’ve egged them on a bit after playing my Disco 70’s CD one day but this continued for months! I have always loved the Warrior and Randy moments and the Ultimate Maniacs~~ great date today! More are in my book…

The word “ultimate” seemed to appear in both kids vocabulary and believe me when I say they NEVER ever used that word before and now rarely do. For my girl, it was a “grand finale” jumping off the swing set as the “ultimate” ending. For my boy, he used it to describe the biggest water balloon he was saving for last. He threw it at the garage while shouting: “the Ultimate!” It burst everywhere as he ran away inside. I was left to pick up the pieces. What a funny little twist of fate that was but it’s all good.

There you have it. My kids and their weird yet comical behavior mostly being in the spring and summer of 2014. If you knew them, you’d know their vocabulary or behavior. This stuff was not that at all. My girl has more little sillies but these experiences left me wondering and yet without feeling naive, I believed.

They might not sound funny to you but they were to me as I still laugh today!!! Kids REALLY do say the darndest things but they act the darndest too. Look for those constant signs and you’ll be a believer too. After all, kids are honest (well, most of the time) and Warrior’s beliefs revolve around honesty. They were funny and Warrior IS funny! That too, I will always believe…

Virgo and Gemini, I Get It

As you can see warriors, this post is about these crazy birth signs of ours so am referencing those gentlemen in the photo. Vince McMahon was always off-limits for me as I am not examining his relationship with Warrior or any other business related professionals. I am however, going to share my involvement in this as it always connects to me.

Have you ever read your daily horoscope? Not horror– for all you skeptics! Have you ever read up on astrological birth traits? If you have, you might tell where this is headed but if not– let me help you out just a little. I’ve mentioned Warrior and my daughter sharing that Gemini sign many times but Vince and I share the Virgo one. No, I don’t go looking up people but happened to come across this information on twitter a few years ago.

All those Happy Birthday wishes for Mr. McMahon and oh, so sweet! Once I realized we both are Virgos, how do you think I reacted? “OMG, I can’t believe it, how super cool!” Nope– not mine at all. I just said to my phone: “I get it.” What does that even mean? I cried a little which sounds weird I know… I understand what it’s like to be a Virgo and while some traits are not me all the time, most are. You can look up your own but just know mine involves stubbornness, a good work ethic, organized, and emotional. The emotion part is not what it seems. WE CARE A LOT.

I’ve read some quotes from Mr. McMahon and he has said the relationships with some of the superstars back in the day was: “never just business for me.” Warrior and him had a very strong personal bond. Virgos like being in control and being right but our heart is out there. I would always blame Vince for everything bad that I didn’t like with um, you know who. After all, “don’t cross the Boss!” Right? He was the obvious target until fans knew more of the story.

Another interesting so-called “fact” is that Virgos and Geminis are a bad mix and don’t get along. Let’s see— I’ve got that girl/girl dynamic with my daughter, Vince and Warrior had the guy/guy dynamic so I guess that leaves me and Warrior with the girl/guy dynamic. We actually share some traits but I can see aspects of clashing too. I have said also that I didn’t always agree with Warrior’s views but never lost respect for him, never… Geminis are stubborn too and put their heart into what they do. Respecting authority was sometimes difficult for Warrior but again– he didn’t have that much in his past which is the WHY. Forget all the “specifics” of what people say about possible opposites. I can clash with my daughter too but we come together when it counts the most.

I do believe and Vince has said this too but he and Warrior were more alike than different. Intellectual yet creative. They fought passionately for what they believed in and I do too. This helped me understand Vince a little more also and not just from a business perspective. My daughter is passionate too and in fact had to look up info several years ago as I became perplexed with her behavior. I needed more and it was very clear to me as to why she reacted the way she did in some situations.

I realize this isn’t for everyone and I don’t follow astrology regularly but it does provide some insight and it did for me. Sure, it can be fun just to see how your day gets played out but don’t get too caught up as it isn’t healthy. At least I don’t think so.

We should always look to the good and not the bad. When most think of those guys in that photo, negative memories will surface. Isn’t that a shame? I actually want to remember the good they did together despite their differences at times. This photo, great memory. Clashing yes– for a while but like I have stated before as well, you gotta get to the WHY and HOW not just the WHAT. Most people don’t. Things are not always what we think or how they seem. To be without emotion means you don’t care and they both did—- so much.

My relationship with Warrior in spirit isn’t one of clashing at all but it’s different energy in that way. We have so much in common and more than I ever thought. Of course it has nothing to do with money, (my book a little!) a character, fame, or any of that but the spiritual heart of him is the same. I am glad he did walk away from WWE actually since the possibility of being away from his family would’ve hurt his spirit more. He proved he could do other things in his life.

Here’s one final note to add: When I was first going thru all this with Warrior in the beginning, I wanted to use one word to describe him. That’s impossible! I was tired of hearing intense, energetic, disciplined, and others. The perfect word popped in my head— ENIGMA.

That was before I had the book where Vince used that word too. I walked away from the page knowing great Virgo minds think alike! Mystique was another great one but enigma is Ultimate!

I have had other moments when something popped in my head before ever looking at the book… “A Life Lived Forever.” I would then read or see things after I had an intuitive moment. My abilities and Warrior energy hard at work! ๐Ÿค๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

P.S. Virgos= earth

Geminis= air

~~~ I think this is perfect since we always need both. ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’จ

~~~ I know Virgo is a “maiden” but maybe Vince would prefer an Earth reference as “protector” of the WWE!

Happy Undertaker Halloween! ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ˜ณโ˜ ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Happy Halloween Warrior fans! I had planned on using a photo from the June 2, 1991 Body Bag Match between the Ultimate Warrior vs. the Undertaker but then saw these masks! This was a much better choice for me since really, I didn’t want to use that match of Warrior being paralyzed or put in a body bag at the end..๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Let’s back up a few years with some funny Undertaker moments. I decided to wait until Halloween since well, I think you probably know why! At first, the Undertaker was never a person I would choose to write about as previously mentioned but hey– it’s all good now and they were friends.

A year or so after Warrior passed, my son panicked about not having a current library book to use at school. He had finished his first one and needed another for tomorrow, ugh! Last minute doesn’t work with this Mama… Off to the library we went and started browsing the stacks. Once again, a library moment but I’ll take it.

He was on one end and I wandered off a little next to him. My eyes were intent on finding this series or author he liked but then my gaze turned upward. Right in front of me standing straight up on this shelf was a biography in the kids section of WWE’s Undertaker! That character always brings up bad memories for me but for the first time ever, I smiled and thought of all the library stuff I had seen since Warrior’s passing. Another right place, right time moment.

I did open it up which many years ago would never have given a second look. I took a photo and sent it to my brother with the same caption used frequently back then: “I can’t go anywhere!” It was a funny yet frenzied and unexpected library time.

The next Undertaker moment came after I purchased the “Ultimate Collection” DVD and it has an interesting twist only recently noticed. When I bought the DVD of course it had to be new without any previous views. It had never been opened or watched before so I was set.

Some parts were skipped like you-know-who but also WMVI among a few others I had seen bunches or had on VHS already. The day came when I decided to finally watch those parts just to see it all thru to the end. I got to that match between U.W. and U.T. and about halfway into the “snoozefest” (it really was!) the DVD started skipping. You know what I mean right? That happens after a while when you watch something over and over but this was new!

Somebody up there knows my feelings about U.T. so– come to your own conclusion… ๐Ÿคฃ Guess I wasn’t supposed to watch that whole match as it skipped thru most of it. I couldn’t believe this while just laughing so hard to myself. I had never even watched that before, ever… Those electronic devices sure are tricky! Very little times would anyone catch me watching that match or even the Funeral Parlor before it on the DVD. I do love Randy and Roddy’s commentary since they save me! ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

So, let’s move ahead to now and just a few weeks ago. Decided to see if indeed the “skipping part” was still there but before I even got to the match– the Funeral Parlor part was skipping! โšฐ๏ธ Whaaat??? I barely have watched that but hey, fine by me! I did go ahead to the match and it wasn’t skipping at all. Now, it’s the Parlor’s turn, hmm…. Remember the “Lights on, Lights off” post relating to Undertaker? Could these both have some funny Warrior energy attached to them? It sure makes me laugh since he knows my stories now.

Going back to early October, my husband, daughter, and I were at the Halloween store. I saw these U.T. masks. Your thoughts really do manifest sometimes. I was actually thinking of my next blog post while there… Um, why??? I didn’t want to use a match photo and then I saw the masks! Problem solved yet again. When I went to put one back after looking at it, the plastic hook broke– figures….

Have a FUN yet SOOOKY Halloween, maybe I’ll see someone with an Undertaker mask on! Just no hearing GONG music… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ’ฉ

P.S. Nothing else has ever skipped on the DVD, ever.., ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

P.P.S. SO EXCITED to share the link for my RADIO show interview with Kate Delaney of America Tonight! You need to scroll down to October 10th, hour 2. I am at the 27:11 mark, 12 min. long.
