This site explores my experiences with The Ultimate Warrior of the WWE and my psychic gifts. I turned many into a book called Spirit and Belief but will share my thoughts, views, and stories on him and spirituality here for fans of his and intuitives to share.

I'm a wife, mom of 2 and have always been a huge fan of WWE’s the Ultimate Warrior despite his passing. I created this blog to share my stories relating to him that happened years ago and some are continuing today with his Spirit alive and well! I hope some fans out there relate and enjoy my blog!!! Check out my book Spirit and Belief on how Warrior influenced me in spirit. It is filled with humor, family stories, psychic terms, following my intuition, and how anyone has natural abilities we can tap into or get discovered. New spiritual topics can also be found at my website: spiritandbelief.com
As this very confusing month for me continued on, there were many odd things happening and April of 2014 was quite complex to say the least!
I remember it being very hot which is unusual weather for April in Ohio. After school, the kids wanted to go in the sprinkler and I had to turn on the A/C! With them outside, I decided to watch t.v. which I never do at around 4:30 p.m. The movie Titanic was on which I believe they show every year in April around the anniversary. Anyway, the ship had just hit the iceberg– perfect huh… I got hooked watching and realized it was getting time to start dinner. I can’t believe I was watching this movie considering that epic song and words, what timing….
I went to the kitchen and decided to get this corningware dish I rarely use but couldn’t reach so grabbed a chair. While getting the dish, the lid slipped out of my hand, crashed to the floor and broke everywhere!
I just stared realizing what had happened and then opened the window calling the kids to bring me my flip-flops. I jumped on the counter to avoid the glass. As I was cleaning I said how I’d never seen something so shattered in my life before. I immediately thought of my emotions being shattered when hearing about the loss of Warrior. I also thought of Dana and the girls. This metaphor describes how they must’ve felt.
We did finish watching Titanic and it was a little history lesson for my kids. Even though that song is so emotional and haunting, I actually got out my Celine Dion CD of greatest hits and blasted “My Heart will Go on” while singing at the top of my lungs! Who does that?? Guess I needed to let something out.
I can still hear the character of Rose telling Jack how she’ll never let go and with my spiritual connection to Warrior, in some ways I can’t either. Also, I am reminded of this very odd day every time I open my cupboard and see that corningware dish without its matching lid. The heart does go on in its OWN time and way…. 🛳⚓️
Most of my writings were done in the summer and becoming a part of this blog– if not now then possibly upcoming… This post I wrote a week ago in my bedroom as my daughter watched t.v. on my bed. Guess I was inspired to maybe educate some of you so here goes…….
I decided taking a break from my regular writings to try and explain the whys and hows of my spiritual journey. There will always be doubters but hopefully you can learn something new as I have.
From the beginning I’ve shared all these signs or experiences that have happened relating to Warrior but a part of me thinks some explaining is in order. I’ve talked about doing my “homework” or research on this topic but it wasn’t just poof-of-a- magic wand and oh– lucky fan I am, he’s with me in Spirit. Some things were right away, yes but the more serious and thought provoking ones mostly have been this year with a background.
I really feel my connection to the spirit world began as I started meditating last year. It manifested such a sense of peace and calmness that my being was able to be receptive in receiving messages. Once I looked up signs of ADC’s or “after death communication”, it started making sense to me. I never doubted; however, as more things kept happening it became my new reality. I didn’t know the best way to feel– elated, unsure, full of questions, humbled, a little afraid (maybe). 😬😳
There are about 10-12 “signs of someone in spirit visiting” and I have had close to 10. Some yet to be written about in blog posts but these really do exist and I believe.. Could it be others on my spirit team contacting me? Perhaps but Warrior is the main event throughout and the signs all seem to connect.
I need to clear up a few misconceptions about ADC’s from what I have learned:
1. They don’t give off signs that your house is haunted or that they are ghosts. (Such a negative word to me and something entirely different!)
2. They are not just meant for people who were close to someone on Earth or a relative (helloooo–my story!) I am in the minority but that’s o.k.
3. They are not around to frighten or scare. Some people might think I am imagining or making things up, crazy, silly, etc.. I often thought that myself but this is NOT in my head and is real as the words on this page.
4. They are not around to tell you what to do or how to live your life. Your energy will combine with theirs creating signs but it is always a choice to notice or listen. This isn’t some cult-type thing with us as robots. I must say also and in other posts have mentioned signs can and are sometimes filled with humor!
5. They will not choose ways that are unfamiliar for you to recognize and are very often times noticeable. Your signs are just for YOU, everyone doesn’t receive messages the same way. The most common signs for me are feathers and music, but for someone else it could be something altogether different.
I have had dreams, songs on the radio, nature elements or symbols( birds, feathers, flowers, coins— yes I have a few!), lights flickering~~ my daughter is a witness, license plates, goosebumps, buzzing in my ears, hearing a voice (clairaudient and another post…), falling objects, and people messengers like my kids!!
They say that a spirit being projects similar energy to how they were as an Earthly being. This is very true of Warrior at times I sense or feel his presence. Working out? You betcha! Certain songs? Heck ya! Indiana or New Mexico plates? For sure! Watching his DVD? Of course! I could go on and on and on…. Read previous posts for more!!
It is a gift I am continually developing as a spirit intuitive however this journey goes. Psychic medium I am not but this chose me. I didn’t pursue any after death communication with Warrior and yet he saw something in me besides belief to get my creative juices flowing.
We need to learn everything we can as I always am doing throughout this process. If I can educate or inspire, I am doing my job. Thank you Warrior for choosing me. I feel so much pressure sometimes but he is working thru me and I will always honor that the best I can. ~~~ One more thing– as I wrote this my light flickered…….🤗🙏🏻

Shortly after Warrior passed, I began seeing little signs around that reminded me of him. Like so many others, when someone we care about leaves earth people want or need signs and look for them as a comfort. These two “signs” just happened to cross my path when I wasn’t even prepared. With many occurrences pertaining to Warrior, they are very random and make me smile.
Years ago, my mom gave me some extra tulip bulbs to plant and these few I have in the planter next to my driveway. Every year a few bloom and they are purple. I never know how many will blossom if any so it is always a mystery. As I was waiting with the kids in the drive for the bus one day mid- April I noticed them.
There were 7 beautifully bloomed purple tulips right next to me. 🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷Now, I know this could be because of a mild winter, an early warm spring, or good bulbs. In all these years, I have never had 7 bloom– never… I believe in the power of numbers~~7 letters in Warrior maybe? This could also be God’s way of giving me peace of mind and I won’t really ever know for sure. What I do know is that they warmed my heart and that’s what mattered. Two years later and I’ve only had 3 or 4 tulips bloom, what a beautiful sign that spring.
Also, around this very
“robotic” time for me, I looked across the street and back in the neighbor’s yard, there was a coyote. They are similar to a dingo, hehe… Coyotes are rarely seen here and one could argue logic. Late winter they mate and then in spring have their young. Migration patterns also may dictate areas they could be seen. If so, why aren’t they around every spring? That time, that year it was new and different.
I turned away for a few seconds to control the dog, looked back and it was gone. How did it run away so fast that I felt perplexed with its whereabouts? It did remind of Warrior who came back for his HOF experience only to be gone so quickly.
Could that coyote have been another message or a sign? I believe it could if not just to remind me how fast things can change. There is a part of me that feels so humbled getting signs even unworthy at times but like he said there are no coincidences and everything happens for a reason. My intuition tells me I must Always Believe…….
Since WWE’s Survivor Series was just the other day, I decided to share this story for today’s blog. Also, how fitting that today’s date is the EXACT date from S.S. ’90– Nov. 22! ( Had to look that up in my book!)
What a Rush this was and out of all my past memories relating to Warrior, this one is by far the most distant in my experiences. I was in 7th grade and the school year had just begun. I do believe we had started watching wrestling at home because of what I noticed in my classroom. I sat next to this boy whom I had known for years and on his notebook was a picture of the Road Warriors– Hawk and Animal.
Most of my family probably thought I didn’t talk to boys much at all but actually I did since the topic of wrestling became my ice breaker. We started this whole conversation about the characters despite class going on and besides, we didn’t like our teacher anyway! There were a few other boys that had started watching wrestling but I always felt in the minority with girls since they never talked about it and would never have the courage to ask.
It wasn’t a “girl” thing much at all even though there were women wrestlers. Certainly a different story today but this was even before the first Wrestlemania. Hulk Hogan was just starting to become popular in 1984 from what I can remember and this was years before the Ultimate Warrior even came to be.
The compelling part of all this for me was that his notebook had the Road Warriors on it. That could’ve been anybody else– too many to mention. I know how Warrior and Sting as the Bladerunners looked to Hawk and Animal for inspiration. They liked how they “carried themselves” and had the confidence. Who would’ve thought a few years later the Dingo Warrior, Ultimate Warrior, and then Warrior would bust through that curtain? Also, how Warrior would later get the chance to partner with Hawk and Animal known as Legion of Doom then along with Kerry Von Erich in Survivor Series 1990.
I always thought at the time that Hulk was the biggest star and of course he was but there were and are other favorites. I certainly learned this at the age of 12 which became the beginning for me. This connection, subtle as it was back then started many things for me that I could never imagine. It wasn’t just the beginning of a Warrior name but talking to boys about something of interest. It made me feel good. Such a defining moment of my pre-Warrior days and What A Rush it became.
Besides the spiritual type of signs I seemed to see after Warrior’s passing, there were many things that made me feel as if the Twilight Zone had taken over! I decided to combine all these even though they might not flow together like a story should. What is true is how the same element runs through them all and that is Warrior references small enough for me to notice.
I can’t quite seem to remember the order because it was like an avalanche piling on top of me all the time. I do know that most were hysterically funny which really got me laughing and I did over and over again. 😅😂
My kids were acting slightly different and I know there wasn’t a full moon every night! They started playing wrestling which they never do and also using the word “ultimate” in their vocabulary. This is not a word I hear from them rarely if ever… How did this happen to coincide with Warrior having just passed? They also watched a cartoon that was wrestling based with Ric Flair as a character. I of course had to watch too and couldn’t believe how bizarre it was to me.
At my daughter’s basketball practice a few years ago, inside the gym on the bulletin board was their word of the week. It happened to be our kneecap– the patella. I giggled at the thought of WM6 which one has to be familiar with to connect these little things. Also, when she played soccer, her team’s name was the Monsoons and she picked number 6 for her jersey. I walked away chuckling to myself…
One night when she was using her dictionary skills for homework, the guide word was hulk— unreal… It’s second meaning is ” a big, clumsy person.” Totally have never forgotten that one!
Another reference to WM6 was a truck I saw while driving that had the words “Pillar to Post” on the side!! No idea what they were advertising. We were stopped at a light next to each other and I literally laughed out loud! You have to know the banter between Gorilla and Jesse like I do and that driver probably thought I was crazy– maybe I was but it felt good to laugh so hard!
Randy Savage also seemed to be present a few times too. At the baseball game one night, they played his voice and put up his catchphrase “oh yeah!” on the Jumbotron . They probably do this a lot but back then, it got to me. I love how he and Warrior were such good friends… While shopping once I saw a random Randy shirt mixed in with all these others. He didn’t seem to fit in this rack and maybe got misplaced but because of the timing I noticed…
Definitely was a sensory overload at the time and I seemed to catch every detail. The little things– strange as they may seem make a difference. Most brought me happiness or silliness and the humor Warrior had came through. I have read if he liked you, he would do funny things so perhaps he knew it was time for me to laugh. #theultimatechallenge #skydome #wrestlemaniaVI
This summer we went to the Black Hills in South Dakota and yes even got some Warrior signs here! We stopped at this 1880’s town with a gift shop, diner, restrooms, and gas station. We just needed to do our business, walk the dog, and stretch our legs but for me it became a little bit more.
We walked around some and noticed this old train parked in front of the diner. This was the Santa Fe Train Stop Diner. An actual sign again and a train with Warrior’s hometown across the front. Wow… I remembered Vince saying: ” He’s like a runaway locomotive when he gets going!” So super cool for me to see!!
Once we got to our cabin later in the day, the owners greeted us along with their kids and two friendly dogs. The one dog was named Daisy which totally reminded me of Dana’s blog about a week before our trip when she mentioned Warrior’s beloved dog Daisy. Of all the girl dog names, this one was a Daisy, how special..
A few days later we decided to find this old watering hole for the kids and dog to go swimming. Afterwards, we began the long trek back up very rocky ground with lots of tree roots, cliffs, and winding paths. As usual I’m the caboose( haha– train metaphor! 🚂) but that’s o.k. They all went ahead and I was feeling hot, tired, and so sick of this trail by now.
As I was growing despondent, I looked right and saw a huge patch of daisies growing wild. No other flowers were around at all. I called the others to see but they were too far ahead. I just smiled and got up more strength, courage, and gusto to finish that climb. Why were they daisies? I think I know but they made all my weaknesses vanish so I could suck it up and keep going on my chosen path.
