“It’s enough for this restless warrior just to be with you.”
~~ Can You Feel the Love Tonight
~~ The Lion King, 1994, Elton John
Can you believe this movie was first released by Disney 25 years ago? With that milestone, the Broadway musical came to my hometown along with releasing a live action movie this past summer. The Lion King has always been one of my favorite Disney animated cartoons of the more modern era. Once I saw it would be here in August around our anniversary, I bought us tickets!
I remember going to the theater with my mom and sister back in ’94. There was such silence after Mufasa died as this little boy said: “Is he dead?” Oh, the memories.. I hope that boy liked the end. Guess who else loved this movie? That’s right– Warrior himself! Yes, I know the word warrior is in that song up above but not a clue on his personal pics for movies.
He mentioned this in one of his many YouTube videos but I can’t remember which one! Trust me on this or I wouldn’t have a story. The musical was ultimately spectacular and we loved it. Of course it isn’t identical to the animated version as some newer songs were added. If you do get the chance to see it, PLEASE go!You won’t be disappointed.
This theater was packed and I did get a little smile as that song played– the restless warrior is so true indeed. Shortly after that, my right ear started ringing REALLY LOUD. I had to cup my hand over it to hear better. That is one of my spiritual signs and in that loud theater, I heard it. Was Warrior there and acknowledging this performance? I always believe. After all, he loved The Lion King too so it’s only natural for him to attend. (: Spirits like to be part of our fun events too but we were there for our anniversary! It was technically the next day but humor struck again.., 😳
After intermission, we decided to stand for the second act. Our knees were buckling and I needed to stretch my legs badly. We found spaces in the back behind the last row where the ushers stood. I was on the aisle and had much more room. Shortly after the first few dramatic scenes, goosebumps filled my arms and legs. Yep, another sign yet again, WOW! Warrior WAS there since that’s a biggie with him. Ever so slowly, I inched a little to my right so there was a spot for him. He can stand next to me and my husband– how cool!!
Some of you probably think I’m a little nutty here and I respect that. I wasn’t sure to even share this as it concerns my husband but how do I not recognize the obvious signs from Warrior? No way could I ignore them. I’d want to go down as a spirit too! It was so incredible knowing we had yet another “like” in common.
I never even questioned those signs at all since they are quite common for me. Even if you aren’t in touch with spiritual vibes, we should always learn something new as much as we can. Warrior said this many times. I know I do everyday. That stone in the photo is one of my new crystals. I loved it right away after picking it up from a giant barrel at a recent Healing Expo. It’s a Botswana Agate. There are many agates but this one is native to Africa. Don’t you love the colors?
How perfect for me to find that since The Lion King is gee… about Africa! Also, I’ve mentioned bloodstone before as being a “warrior stone” but let me share this about my new agate:
“Strength of a warrior, aids in protection.” (during battle)~~ We can use the battle to mean many things besides a physical war but again NO IDEA about this African Botswana Agate Stone. I know how to pick ‘um, don’t I? It really is enough for my restless warrior just to be with me. I really always feel the love with or without stones or ya know– a big ‘ol musical…
P.S. My favorite Lion King song is:
“I Just Can’t Wait to be King.” It’s so fun with those two young lion cubs. How about some lyrics?:
“I’m gonna be the main event…”
“Free to run around…”
“Free to do it all my way.”
“Everywhere you look I’m standing in the spotlight!”
Ummm… sounds kinda like someone I know, 😉 Some people didn’t want to be “King of the Ring” though…. 👏🏻👑🤼♂️
