I know I’ve referenced books before but THIS one you’re gonna want to hear about Warrior fans! Even if you are not into this title of sorts like me, the main connection of that word warrior is. Let me share this little adventure of mine…
I have bought many books these past few years but really wanted to explore this one local spot where I’ve donated before. Maybe you are familiar with places that have everything from books to movies, CD’s, audio tapes, magazines, comics, and all in betweens. You can donate items as well and get paid. It’s like a giant library only with money involved. Of course, I head-butted my way into the spiritual section.
So many choices, where to begin? This book of Animal Totems caught my interest as I’ve blogged about them on my website:www.spiritandbelief.com BTW– my spirit animal is a HAWK! I found this out by doing an exercise from the book. That story was just written (: Oh, lookie at that connection.
Hawk+Animal= The Road Warriors. ( of wrestling fame and mentioned in my book)
Karmic yet again… I just put that together! I love nature and animal connections, can ya tell? It seems like everything I find, read, pick up, listen to, or just about whatever interests me has a Warrior reference without prior knowing. For real. No joke. This book included. So, fans what animals do you think would be attributed to a warrior? Hmm… Let me help you? An eagle? A wolf? A bear or buffalo perhaps? How about an elephant? Possibly but not in this book.
You wanna hear the author’s warrior totems? The bell has rung and the winners are: dog, (dingo) ~that would’ve been a great guess, badger, and the funniest of all– WEASEL! Yep, you heard me. Bobby “The Brain” Heenan of WWE fame – aka “The Weasel” immediately got me laughing. 🤣
The Ultimate Warrior and “The Weasel” had many encounters together as Bobby managed a few of those bad guys often brawling against Warrior. Here’s some quotes: “In the Celtic tradition, the weasel is associated with the Warrior, because while graceful and agile, it is a fierce little animal that has an extraordinary amount of energy.” Look at those similarities! Of course this is the animal and not Bobby but STILL! Some of those words apply to both.
Let’s look at the dog reference. Many may know of a dog’s loyalty so that WE are as true fans! It was a “great honor” to compare a dog to a warrior. Also it connects to truth, family, and being yourself. Some hunting dogs or breeds are even more free-spirited and Warrior mentioned his dogs bringing him ya know– “gifts.” Free- spirited on both sides. In his 2007 podcast, Warrior discusses the two dogs and their gifts! Also, he shares the story of how the Dingo Warrior name came to be on the Ultimate Collection DVD.
The last one is badger. This is where I actually found part of my title of last week’s post since badger is the “peaceful warrior.” It is also quietly strong and brave while building a life for itself. The “secret, sacred energies of the land” represents badger as Warrior himself also revered the land out west he came to love. They hold their own when faced with obstacles and have strength in body, mind, and spirit. They love to have time alone to be in nature. How do I find all these references? My destiny always revealing itself in many ways. Three animals, a three count for the win once again!
Most recently, I came across a few other similarities that caught my attention. Another book I bought on self-empowerment mentions the author’s friend being named Dana and on the opposite page , she was a member of Gold’s Gym. The author, not Dana. Always believe..,
Another was a newspaper mailing we receive and upon opening it the words “Dr. Warrior” in bold appeared right at the top of this article. It was about an actual doctor making huge progress in his field. Always believe…
The last was during a football game a few weeks ago on T.V. Our OSU buckeyes were playing and the announcers promoted Smackdown which is premiering on FOX very soon! One guy mentioned the generation of The Iron Sheik while the younger one mentioned Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior! I left the room giggling to myself… Always believe… Look at that- another three count (:
Who knows if I’ll get more Warrior references but the Universe, those Gods in parts unknown, and Warrior himself all know there are no coincidences. Just synchronicities. May you too always believe! 💖💪🏻
P. S. I found out from my brother the younger announcer of OSU games is none other than Road Warrior Animal’s son James who is a former player!
P.P.S. I did buy another book in the store on crystals. Bloodstone is the warrior stone which I’ve mentioned before…
