Three Count of Dreams ðŸ’ªðŸ»

Well, warriors- I had said more dreams were coming so gear up for a three count today. I don’t think I’ve ever given a preview of the next post and yet here we are. This all came to me most recently and I believe they were in the same night. Guess it was time for a three count and it gets more detailed as they move on. They also seem to connect with Warrior’s life more so than mine but I take it all in. Let’s start with dream number one.

No idea where I was in this dream but in front of me was a large box of Ultimate Warrior merchandise. Most may know I have a small collection but nothing like this massive collection. There was so much good stuff in there but I vividly remember picking up the exact mask from Warrior’s final appearance on WWE’s RAW April 7, 2014. The whole crowd wore those as did Warrior which made me pause. This mask is in the book: “A Life Lived Forever.” I got that out a long time ago and the strap broke. It was a PS once for a post. I wasn’t meant to wear it. I held it for a bit and then continued on looking at action figures, magazines, belts, and so much more. I was alone but no recollection of this belonging to someone in particular or if it was part of a store. Hmmm… That was it but very cool to see all that great U.W. merch in one place.

The second dream was a little more detailed. This one occurred in the living room of my childhood home. I was there watching our old console T.V. which I can totally picture. Warrior was starring in a movie similar to “Conan the Barbarian.” Yes, fans know he was “The Swordsman” from “Firepower” but he had said years ago how continuing the Arnold Conan series was of interest to him. As I was watching this unnamed movie, there was a close-up of Warrior with his blonde hair and he was in shackles. He obviously had been captured and was being tortured- oh no! There was a woman nearby but I couldn’t tell if she was hurting or helping him. She looked similar to the actress Nora Lum who goes by the name Awkwafina. Can you picture it? I so hope there was a good ending but in this dream , that was the only seen I saw. I can imagine Warrior in a role very similar so I thank him for coming even if it was through my old T.V. set.

The last dream of course was the most detailed. I hope you can follow along and again- these are my observations and instincts. It’s how I connect the dots so I just go with my first thought and don’t question. OK, now that I’ve set you up, here we go. This one was outdoors and I felt it to be during a frat party in college. I was in someone’s backyard at night as there were lights all around like a summer BBQ. The yard was filled with people, tables of food, drinks, music playing, dancing and just lots of fun. Yeah, it seemed like college kids but very tame! Warrior did attend Indiana State for one year and he looked very young in this dream. It might’ve come about as I had watched an old clip of him and Steve Borden- a.k.a. Sting. I have seen this before with those early Freedom Fighter days in Memphis but watched it again. It’s a clip were Phil Hickerson (whom I wasn’t familiar with) comes up to Jim and Steve and mocks them for just being muscles with no talent. Steve says nothing but Jim challenges Phil to a match. The photo above was from that video. You can look up how that gets played out but imagine Jim’s look then. His hair was just a little longer. That’s similar to his look in the dream.

Here’s another funny connector. Jim had a friend in this dream– no not Steve! But immediately I thought of the show “The Middle.” That comedy aired on ABC for 10 years and the oldest boy went to East Indiana State for college. He had a close buddy on the show. “The Middle” took place in the state of Indiana so Jim and his friend to me in this dream were like Axl and Hutch from “The Middle.” I watched the show and loved it all those years.

I hope you are still with me here… I was walking through the backyard crowd carrying a plate of food for Jim and his friend who were in a tent nearby. I thought later on why I would be doing this?! Get your own food guys! Anyway, the plate contained fried rice and green grapes. Huh? Oh well, that’s what they were getting. I can’t fully connect the grapes but the rice was a real life similarity. My husband and I had recently gone out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant. One of his sides was fried rice and he made a point of showing me the peas which I’m not too fond of. I don’t mind them in pods but I’ve never really liked them, even as a baby. I guess those peas on that plate of fried rice made their way onto another plate in this dream. Crazy! Our real lives matter too. The grapes didn’t factor into my real life but they did in this dream. It was a cute moment but the rice story is funnier so I decided to share that instead. 😂🤭

I brought the guys their rice and grapes and we chatted a bit in this tent. No clue on Jim’s nameless, faceless friend but it was interesting. Was it really a frat party at Indiana State? Who knows but I sensed it that way and thought of “The Middle.” I had never had a dream of Warrior that young but guess I got a little glimpse into a college scene. Next time, they can get their own food, ha ha! I’ll probably laugh when I see fried rice and green grapes again. 😜

So, I hope I amused you all this time around since the last few weeks have been quite heavy and emotional. I like to find the humor even with some editing at times which I need to do. Who can tell what’s next but I’ll be here to share. I wish you all good dreams as always. You may not get a three count like mine but never stop believing in your own warrior power— minus rice and grapes!😴3️⃣☺️

P.S. I recently made a *NEW* youtube video on some really funny stories that happened with my kids after Warrior passed! You can find it here or go to my channel for more goodies on him or spirituality. (: It’s 10:38 in length and all about those Kid Warrior-isms!

All These Emotions ðŸ˜¬ðŸ’™â¤ï¸

There’s a photo full of emotion, isn’t it? Yeah, that’s my topic today and it’s sort of a continuation of last week about Warrior’s Web just a little. I had thought to expand on that post with my thoughts on emotions. Bet you fans got somewhat emotional reading those feelings of last time but we all express them in different ways. Before I start this “match” of sorts, there’s one more thing that I’d like to mention about Warrior. He got called “cerebral“and “misunderstood” quite a bit and I know I’ve said those as well. He mentioned how back in WCW many weren’t making real decisions about storylines and thought he was too cerebral for their content. He of course disagreed as nobody else wanted to think through ideas the way he did. As far as being misunderstood, he goes another way on this. He said how someone must’ve understood (meaning his gimmick, character, etc.) or he wouldn’t have gotten such a push. I’m sure he was referencing Vince on that one. Being cerebral and misunderstood both can invoke emotion, just not in a typical fashion.

Let’s tag Warrior out and tag me in. Here’s some words or phrases I was told as a kid: “you’re too emotional,” “too dramatic,” “over- sensitive,” and the list goes on. I OWN some of those opinions now but as a child, it was extremely hurtful to hear– especially from those closest to you. I was to believe those words were very negative and despite my best efforts, couldn’t hide emotions. Most may think this always has to do with being sad or crying which it does not.

When I helped my son study types of health a few years ago, emotional health was one of them. When I asked him how he defined those words I bet you can guess what he said. Ding, ding, ding! If you said “crying,” you’d be right. Boy, was Mom there to correct him on that. It’s about self-esteem and how you feel about yourself. Boys especially are taught to not express emotion that much but most likely hurt or sadness. That makes you weak or vulnerable and boys can’t cry, right? They have to be tough and then as men, even tougher. Warrior had said how a warrior is gentle and tough. I’m not sure how things were for him overall as a child but hiding emotions I bet factored in. He was hurt many times in his life like we all are but we get to that point where we just won’t share anymore. I became like that too but my emotions aren’t worn on my sleeve like the saying goes but on my face. Just thought of Warrior and his mask on this… We do need to find balance though in expressing our emotions at the right times. We can’t be like toddlers throwing a tantrum. We need to be smart enough to think it all through in a reasonable way but not pack our emotions down into a stuffed suitcase either.

I have always said how we don’t want to be victims but can’t become penniless either. This means we can’t always say: “ poor me” and let others walk all over us but also we can’t save the world either by doing everything for everyone. This plays way too much with our emotional state. Here’s a quote from Morgan Freeman: “Don’t allow your emotions to overpower your intelligence.” ~~~ Warrior would love that, don’t you think? This may sound like I’m contradicting myself but really that statement by Morgan is true. I have let my emotions get in the way without thinking ahead because I listen to my heart most of the time. That is a good thing but there are other factors to consider. The head needs to be there too along with the gut. We can’t forget that. Balance again warriors.

Warrior may have been too emotional or extreme with some decisions he made but we don’t want to get to that boiling point before our emotions take over. The head and heart always want to be the winner but they need their tag team partner with that inner voice of the gut too. You just have to be the one to decide how the storyline goes. Anything actually invokes emotion and it isn’t just the big stuff in life. Reading invokes emotion. Writing invokes emotion. Warrior would agree to that as well. Using our senses invokes so many emotions. Just think of the years you fans (including myself) watched him all those times during the WWF years and beyond. Were you emotional? Of course you were through it ALL.

Sometimes we don’t need those emotions labeled as we are taught to do. They just are there– good, bad, right, wrong, or indifferent. Often times, what one may see as a good or positive emotion won’t affect another the same way. I have thought to myself many times over about how others don’t react the way I do. I can’t understand why they don’t. Being an HSP or (highly sensitive person) isn’t a curse, it’s a blessing. We just feel things differently but need to use it as an advantage. Yin and yang every day. It’s how energy moves through us and for many like myself, it can become pretty intense.

Most regular readers know my posts are full of emotion and always have been! It’s the funny stuff too that brings out our feelings, at least I hope it does. I think the take-away point I’m trying to make here is this: bring a balance into those emotions you have every day without letting something kind of spiral out of control. It’s happiness (which is the best of course) but sadness, anger, jealousy, disappointment, bitterness, guilt, and a million more emotions for our lifetimes. OK, the happy stuff can get out of control in a good way but we all know life isn’t like that all the time.

I realize too that being in the sport of pro- wrestling can be quite the ultimate challenge of handling emotions for a positive result. You become defensive and don’t want to let your guard down. We have to compromise a little though. For a sport that was predominantly men for a long time and their egos, women would be the emotional ones. Guess what? It’s all that for both because we are people. It’s what makes everyone of us human. How you handle your emotions is what this is all about. I know with me, things would just come out. Plenty of times did I question the WHY but I understand better now. We work on it every single day. Let’s bring our head, heart, and gut together to get the balance of all three. Don’t be too cerebral where you become emotionless. Don’t be too emotional where your brain goes on vacation either. We are not our emotions. Let them pass as they will. Listen to the gut as Warrior said. It never lies and can keep those other two in line. Next time you hear the word emotion– don’t think of crying in a sad way. Let’s go for the GOOD. We need to always believe that every day.

P.S. Remember also that crying tears is good for you to cleanse and vent. Sometimes those tears are joy filled! I actually say in meditation every day to bring a balance to my head, heart, and gut. I really do...🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

Inside Warrior’s Web âœðŸ»ðŸ“–

*** A quick note before beginning today. 30 years ago this month of February in 1992, I began a workout program at home in my basement. I remember this because the Winter Olympics were going on just as they are happening now. A little of that story is told in my book Spirit and Belief and it is quite comical how it all started for me. Hard to believe it’s been 30 years!

71 pages. That’s how much material I read most recently from “Warrior’s Web” which the post “Back to Warrior’s Machete” was about a few years ago. The number 71 reminds me of the movie “ELF” when Miles Finch wants a car to be at 71°. That would be his ride to Greenway Publishing. I could just hear his voice saying “71°!” over the phone so it made me laugh! Another movie strikes again… People had talked about Warrior’s web presence and some even found or copied pages he had written. I asked for it and got them. To think someone took time out of their day to send them to me was pretty nice. Many thanks to J.P. My Warrior’s Machete post STILL gets viewed and so now I had more time to read without being rushed back in 1999 or even 2005. Most content I had seen before but possibly forgotten. Nowadays, there’s so many connectors to my life which I’ll be sharing today. There were four years on these writings from Warrior’s Web dated 1999, 2002, 2003, and 2005.

Here’s some quotes not in any particular order:

” I want to post more, but I can’t… my brief can be verbose.”

“Writing is good for you…for it is my belief; for every writer there will be a reader.” ( me for both!)

” I’m just a dumb, muscle-headed wrestler…” (insert humor!)

“I have worked hard to be more than just whatever I did in the ring.”

*So many more to include but these really struck me. *

Am sure you’re wondering about those books in the photo. Yup, got a story for those of course! Here’s one more quote Warrior says about William Bennett’s books: “All his books are gems.” Maybe some of you remember when I shared all about “The Little Engine that Could.” That was a two-parter but “The Little Steam Engine” (same story) is in the beige book you see. When Warrior mentions William Bennett, I knew that name. My aunt and step uncle gave us those two books as a wedding gift almost 20 years ago. I have yet to read all the stories but another great connector. I just had to put them both in the photo with Warrior, or the Ultimate Warrior.

I’m not dissecting every little piece of information on those 71 pages of Warrior’s Web but I am highlighting a few. These are my writings of course but respect is always given to Warrior’s freedom of speech whether I totally agree or not. We are similar in many ways though. I’ve mentioned this plenty of times but our love of books is one thing. No, I will not likely read “The Great Books of the Western World” but a passion behind literature and learning, yes! There were many topics he addressed which I have discussed as well. Discipline, being a hero, Destrucity, succeeding, principles, OWN, defining the word warrior, and so many others come to mind. I love how he mentioned certain ideas and would say how that’s a book, that’s another book, etc. I know he was writing another one but just the thought of putting all that together intrigued me. He stressed the thought of getting a dictionary or thesaurus, I used to say that too but now we have the Internet. Convenient- yes but not as involved for us. I, too love the Internet for it’s good but such little effort on our brains that way.

My feelings about religion or organized religion have also changed enormously. Maybe it never really did but I’m remembering my true beliefs now. Warrior does know more concerning that area being in spirit but I totally agree with his views on God or a Creator. More I mentioned at times is on my other blog but honestly, call a Supreme Being whatever you like- it truly doesn’t matter. I know many who believe in the Bible word for word and being raised that way myself, was taught to believe it. Stories have lots of metaphors and original sin doesn’t sit well with me anymore either. You can think what you want but his thoughts on this totally made sense to me.

I also thought it was interesting to hear him relate some facts about those Founding Fathers of ours in the U.S.  Here’s a story: my husband and I went out to breakfast a few weeks ago and I can’t remember exactly but we were talking about Presidents for some reason. I had recalled Warrior listing how John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on the 50th anniversary ( SAME day) of the Declaration of Independence’s signing. I found it on his web and told my husband who knew this already. It was then that my left ear started ringing for a few seconds. Thanks for being part of the conversation Warrior! He connected dates just like I do. 🇺🇸

So glad also to read humor in his writings. He does admit to mistakes like we all have and owns them. “There is no shame in being a beginner or a novice… life has purpose.” Yes, so true Warrior and we need to always believe that. One of my favorite parts was when he talked about becoming a father. I, too could understand his feelings. He already was changing and growing before fatherhood like I was before motherhood. I loved how he said Indy’s kisses were the best part of his day! That was before new baby Mattie joined the family. 💋

The last part I will mention is Davey Boy Smith’s passing.

***BIG SIGH*** 😞from me on this. I knew they were friends for a while and that Davey’s addictions became seemingly difficult. Some points Warrior made though made me stop reading for a bit.. I do see his frustration on celebrity adulation and how we shouldn’t glamorize someone in death just because they were our “hero” or “idol.” The truth here is that people will mourn the celebrity they knew despite their personal lives, problems, or relationships. I realize Warrior lost respect for Davey because of his behavior and he is entitled to that. He did mention of course how extremely sad it all was. Most fans of any real significance will grieve in a way where none of those addictions matter at all. Warrior was a principled man and I get it. Very difficult to read some of his words considering Warrior’s lifestyle and a few possible contributors to his early passing. I know that’s upsetting to hear. It is for me too. Like he said though, we all make choices and have free will to live our life the way we want. He of course also addressed his “death rumors” years prior and here’s another quote: “The day I actually do die, no one will believe it.” We didn’t Warrior, we truly didn’t.

Most won’t read all this from “Warrior’s Web” but I’m so grateful I have and did. He had so much always going on with “Project Warrior” and that was truly commendable. Warrior was a “Founding Father” in his own way with such a unique expression of living life. I thank him for being so much more than a sports entertainer. He was a thinker who became a doer. Let’s all use our “warrior web” to succeed however we can. The body will give out one day but the spirit never will. 💙🙏🏻

P.S. I didn’t mention any of his views on wrestling or possible “new” talks at the time. I think that topic has been written about much on here already… Oh, there was a Jesse Ventura story cut off from”Warrior’s Web.” I wonder what that was about? 🤔

“Let’s all be O.K…” â¤ï¸â€ðŸ©¹

Before beginning today, we have another fun date. 2/2/22=6. How about that? It appears again and on my Wednesday, so cool. A little happy reminder to start the post. Let’s all be OK. Sounds easy enough to do but sometimes we just can’t be. I really wasn’t aware of how many times I say this but now I catch myself and laugh. We aren’t OK all the time but need to Always Believe we will be. As parents, we tell kids that everything is OK, it’ll be fine, and all that but inside we might be a freaking mess! It’s our job to protect them and really it becomes a defense mechanism to say we are OK or fine. Sometimes though, it gets a little more involved.

I’ll repeat this story briefly but it relates to Warrior since I know you’re all waiting for a title to connect, right? Well, when I saw that “Wrestle America” magazine back in 1993 with the Ultimate Warrior on the front in my grocery store, I stared forever at it. Before finally buying it, here’s my exact words: ” I just want him to be happy.”  I really did. Would you all say that? Probably not- just me… Yes, I know most people wouldn’t have that as their first reaction or just grab the magazine but I did and never forgot it. Does being happy mean we’re OK? It’s close enough for me but I DID want him to be OK in whatever he was doing. That was the movie “Firepower” back then.

But, wait – there’s more to this than just that magazine story. When people I knew had passed, I’d say the same thing to myself: “I just want them to be ok.” Yep, every single time including with Warrior. All right, we probably know they ARE ok or will be once they transition or whatever process you’d like to call it happens. We don’t know all the details as it isn’t for us to know. People around me would say :“of course they’re ok or fine, they’re in a better place.” Any other answers you can think of works here too. I was taught about an after life and have to believe we will all be OK there but with my thoughts, it always went deeper. What if they’re not OK for a bit and scared? Sure, some like my one Grandma being 98 was knowing her time here could be ending but some don’t. Did Warrior know? Well, I will never fully answer that and all our assumptions won’t find out either. I guess it was just always a statement that came out of me and I still think it today. None of us knows how another’s journey to an after life goes ( if you believe which I’ve said I do) so I don’t get over it right away. Us thinkers just don’t.

Time to lighten this up some for those wanting or needing any validation on loved ones being OK. Being OK in parts unknown” that is. I’ve shared many funny stories in my book Spirit and Belief but this one is new to all of you. Sorry that I can’t share all the details as once again, a few things are just for me and will remain a mystery.

It is funny though, I promise you that! February 23, 1990 brought WWF’s “The Main Event” and a televised match between the Ultimate Warrior versus Dino Bravo. I had to look up “The Main Event” as I thought it was “Saturday Night’s Main Event.” Glad I got that straight. Part of this match is on the Ultimate Collection DVD and seeing that 24 years later reminded me of another OMG moment back then. I was 17 going on 18 and watching it all when here comes Earthquake. He spreads Warrior out getting ready to do the “big one” as Vince comments how there isn’t going to be a WrestleMania, this is gonna do it! I said a phrase in my head which surprised me. Why would I say THAT? It wasn’t “Oh, no!” Not anything like that at all. My face looked shocked as I just fluffed it off when Hulk Hogan came to help. This all led up to WMVI like the date today – ha ha! I forgot all about what was in my head although being fake means nothing to what your brain perceives. Fast forward to 2014 and there’s me again much older watching that clip. My brain said this silly phrase once more as I laughed recalling 1990 and being a senior in high school watching it all unfold.

Warrior knows all this now and when seeing it I’ll say to him out loud: I’m not saying it!” I don’t even use these words at all but they are common. Then, I’d laugh as it all comes back one more time meaning that 1990 moment. Here’s the funnier part. Sometimes, when I’m working out listening to my favorite playlist, some songs will play with this certain word in the title or lyrics. If you’ve been here long enough, you know music is a thing with me but it’s super common for spirits to manipulate. You just have to believe. All true. I laugh again as we need to do more. The songs really can connect as I could share much about this. So, yes my friends- Warrior IS ok and we joke around a lot. I have my serious moments too but there’s always a pick me up along the way.

Let’s all be OK because we have to be and need to be. However that looks to you get to a point where being OK is a goal. Sure, we all have days of sadness, anger, disappointment, and all that but let’s win the match with happiness, laughter, and acceptance. Once we do this, our lives will get easier in so many ways. Believe too that any of your loved ones in spirit want the same for you as well. I know they do for me, especially Warrior when it comes to all my memories.

Those silly words I said back in 1990 still are true today and I had no idea how relevant they’d become. I wasn’t OK watching that and my brain panicked but not in the way you’d think. You’ll have your words to remember too but always include how will all be ok because eventually we will be. Look to the funny as one of the best ways to get there. We may have never met but I just want you all to be happy as well. Try music – it works for me! 😉😂🎼

Oh, That Deja Vu… â˜¯ï¸â¤ï¸â€ðŸ©¹

We all have those moments of deja vu in our lives without truly realizing it but then again, there are those times that we do. Warrior’s final appearance on Monday night RAW April 7, 2014 brought some deja vu, at least to me anyway. A little of what he said echoed his past appearance of 18 years prior in 1996. That exact date was April 8th, (sigh) close enough to 2014’s. He also referenced the audiences with the word of “YOU” several times being voices that wouldn’t die becoming storytellers and legends. A 3.5 year absence doesn’t compare to 18 but a little deja vu, oh yeah.

I would often think of that word in regards to Warrior’s comings and goings. After an absence and a return, would it be like deja vu all over again? Would those same “difficulties” possibly surface regarding money, contracts, appearances, or any of that? Those weren’t always prevalent but some can say deja vu if issues repeat themselves. I, of course wished none of that stuff became like deja vu but every time was different.

Another reminder that is more recent involves the untimely passing of Bob Saget. It pains me to even type this as I still can’t believe he is gone. Deja vu hit my phone when I found out that news. I had gotten two text messages. One from my brother and one from my youngest sister. I loved the show “Full House” but mostly because of John Stamos. He was another of those celebs when I wrote “The Rebel Warrior.” The show was adorable but Bob was really incredibly loved by all. Those same two siblings also had me in a group text almost 8 years ago informing me of Warrior’s passing. That was another post but connects here.

They engaged in that for quite a while when I finally responded saying how I couldn’t respond but got all the messages. Those texts were so detailed like they were consoling me in such an intimate way. It was endearing but I got so defensive because of all the emotions. They knew it would hit me unbelievably hard and were checking up on my well-being. The texts about Bob were brief but I immediately thought of deja vu as it seemed to repeat again only less personal. Neither had ever texted me so close together about another celebrity death.

Whew, moving on… My home now has some deja vu with my childhood home. Both are older, both have big backyards, both had grapevines, both were places with pools, and probably so much more. When I moved here, yep- deja vu struck again. We can have life imitating art or vice versa. Even dreams will maybe send us that deja vu as we go about our lives thinking we’ve done this before, been here already, or something similar. Dreams can go even deeper for some in their past but it’s all a belief system. I know a few that have very strong connections to a certain way of life involving a culture or even a specific place. Past lives are part of a belief but that certain kind of deja vu hasn’t happened to me. It still may though, who knows? 🤷🏻‍♀️

Sometimes we repeat an idea or activity because we like it and it feels right. Other times though, we repeat it because subconsciously, it works in our life whether we realize it or not. I know that sounds crazy but I’ll use some easy examples. Let’s look at wrestling since, I dunno- just because! Vince made Hulk Hogan the WWF champion over and over again back in the day. So many reasons factored in like popularity, money, the character worked, and others. I realize this technically isn’t deja vu but hear me out. That is a business and is scripted unlike our lives but it’s a literal example of something repeating. 

How about our lives? We repeat what works for our own reasons but on a deeper level, there’s more. It’s familiar and comfortable because it’s part of us. I like to write when I was younger but no idea déjà vu would be an issue 10 years later. Most that do a fitness routine may become robotic over time and yes, that happens with me too. Warrior probably would switch his repetitive routine sometimes as well. We want to stay fit. Those things are routine but your true passions will affect you differently.

A passion can become dormant for a while and then resurface when you thought it was done in your life. I’m sure you can think of examples of your past kind of repeating in a new or unexpected way. Warrior’s return to the WWE in 2014 brought about much déjà vu for him I’m sure as he remembered many memories -great, good, and bad. Just think of another NOLA appearance he made in 1984 with bodybuilding and then 30 years later for WMXXX weekend. I’ve mentioned that before but déjà vu playing out again.

I think with most déjà vu moments, they are more subtle than direct. We know our every day stuff or routines but think of those times that perhaps aren’t as obvious. You might not know why something resonates with you at that moment, but it just does for whatever reason. It may just connect to a recent past memory but maybe the déjà vu goes way back. It can get tricky though as we do repeat activities for a lifestyle but there might be more to it than that.

Whether one believes in déjà vu as part of them or not, it does exist as we sometimes just gloss over all those moments in time. We say: “been there, done that” often but deja vu sneaks up on us when we aren’t expecting it. Sure, it can also come about as planned like big stuff typically does but the little things should get attention too. I have written many stories about little thoughts that matter just as much as the big ones. Many did involve déjà vu but not always in the way one might think.

Look at your life for those déjà vu moments and accept them as part of you. It doesn’t have to be super deep all the time and quite often, isn’t. You may not have a repeat return, a backyard memory, or a text message but déjà vu is there. Our past does come back in doses to remind us to stop and think of two little words called déjà vu and what it truly means in life. If it repeats, look to the real reason why. I can agree with this most ultimately! 💙🙋🏻‍♀️🥰

P.S. When some of my spiritual gifts developed more, it seemed to fit so naturally like I wasn’t just learning it all for the first time. Déjà vu indeed for you deep soul thinkers!

The Principle Plan ðŸ‘ðŸ»ðŸ‘

How about this word of principle warriors? No, not someone who is in charge of a school but rather someone who is in charge of their life and beliefs. Yeah, of course Warrior was, but are you? This word I could discuss forever with you all but I know my limit on posts! Would you consider yourself a person of principle? Well, some use this word conditionally or only when it suits them. It suits me always but standing by a certain principle, belief, or feeling does have its consequences. Warrior knew this all the time and yet never fully wavered on many aspects. Sure, he evolved like we all need to do over time but abandoning his true principles to their core-never.

Here’s some scenarios in my own life so let’s see if any of you can relate. I have a lot of common sense like perhaps many of you but it does get tested quite often. While growing up, I just couldn’t understand why people made decisions the way they did. Don’t they get it? I still shake my head at some people but it’s all in our perspective. Many do things just to prove they can or to fit in with a group. I’ve said this before but it does get personal.

This has happened to me regarding dating back in high school. Sometimes, when I wouldn’t be with someone, my younger sister would invite me to tag along with she and her boyfriend or another couple. Thanks but no thanks. Would you want to be a 3rd or 5th wheel? Um, not me. She was trying to be nice and I do understand so without becoming too defensive, I’d politely say no but thanks for thinking of me. Some may let it go at that but not she or my Mom either. “Come on, it’ll be fun!” That’s what they’d say. O.K., yes, it would be fun but again- principles factor in here so would YOU go? Maybe you would but not me. I’d rather have nothing going on than to be an “extra” on a date or double-date.

Another time for me was senior prom. Nope, never went to that either. You may think my dating life then was pretty sad but hey, I had standards. I didn’t realize why I felt that way but now it makes more sense. Most of my friends had boyfriends during senior year, but I didn’t. Nobody serious anyway and girls didn’t go together in a group over 30 years ago. My one friend had recently broken up with a guy who was a real player. He became such a jerk and everyone knew. She was dating someone else and asked if I wanted to go to prom. She could fix me up with him as they still talked. Why she still kept in touch with him, I didn’t know. Part of me couldn’t believe she was asking this. Another part wanted to say yes just to hang with my friends. I could handle myself with this guy, or could I? She was o.k. with me saying no but I made the mistake of telling those same people at home once again. I got the same reaction from them.

Lesson learned for sure as I started keeping my mouth shut about those conversations. Why couldn’t they understand the principle here? I am not fake and never do something just to do it in that way. Alright, I’ve bent the principle plan a little but not on that topic. I have no regrets even all these years later.

Sometimes now I am faced with the same scenario involving grown women in my neighborhood. Have you ever seen the 2004 movie “The Stepford Wives?” Another movie again! All the women seem to be clones or robots of another, real creepy. It’s the feeling, remember? So many women I know have to fit in that mold of being a martyr, victim, or looking a certain way. Not me. My principle plan always wins that match. I will help in the schools and have plenty over the years but you’ll never find me baking 12 dozen cookies, 5 lasagnas, or volunteering for everything. I do what works for me and don’t need to brag, show off, or be Little Miss Perfect. Sorry to all those who do a lot but you CAN, I just do it differently. Don’t get me wrong. Not all women are like that and I have several who aren’t.

Maybe I stick to these principles too much for some but that’s just who I am, like Warrior was also. Many guys have even come forward and said how Warrior injured some of them by not showing respect. I do feel bad if all that happened back then, so why? Was he so into a match that his aggression came out? Maybe other things factored in as he became the Ultimate Warrior, I don’t know. His principles could have been an issue with that and again, I am sorry if any of them were injured. ☹️

Your principles matter too in so many ways but really think about those that will be a priority. Maybe it’s all or nothing with you but perhaps a compromise could be reached. When it comes to morals or a certain code of beliefs, I always stick to my principle plan as I hope you will too. Don’t worry- I was not dateless all the time but we do need to take chances in order to grow internally. You will know those areas in your life that require a principle plan and those that can be wavered on some. All or nothing will become a very difficult way of life but let your own principles guide you always. I could share so many more stories but think I’ve left enough for you warriors to reflect upon. Don’t be a 3rd or 5th wheel or even a “Stepford Wife” ( to all the ladies.) Use the principle plan that works best in your life. 😊

***P.S. I didn’t have one for this post and this totally doesn’t relate but want to share anyway! Last fall, I was at First Energy Stadium to cheer on my Cleveland Browns against those Pittsburgh Steelers, boo! 🏈We lost, barely but during the football game, I had asked my husband what he thought the seating capacity was. I hadn’t been here in a while and with a rivalry, it’s insanely LOUD! His guess was I dunno, around 67,000 or so?

*** What??? I just chuckled to myself since WMVI back in the Toronto Skydome had 67,000 plus. Of course my brain went to that! Here’s the numbers:

Stadium- 67, 431.

WMVI- 67,678. ~~~ Too funny for me…😂❤️

A One Time Return ðŸ‡ªðŸ‡¸ðŸ’ªðŸ»ðŸ¤¼â€â™‚️

Once again, I wanted to share a different opportunity Warrior had so you see his 2008 return match in Spain here. This was 10 years after he officially retired from wrestling and also 6 years before he passed. 6 again. Am sure most fans have seen this NWE (Nu Wrestling Evolution) match involving Orlando Jordan but I wanted to learn a little more, so I did. Why Spain? Well, Warrior was there receiving an award in Madrid from an Italian wrestling organization as this all came about. It wasn’t really a “comeback” in true fashion but more of a one time return to the ring. I believe he also wanted to show those cute little girls of his what Daddy did. My favorite parts are seeing them in the ring with him, oh my heart… 💖

I had also found out how he had stomach flu before this match and was quite sick. Hard to believe and none of us would ever know. A while back, I thought to mention this Spain return but always stopped. Sometimes, other stories would come to me and I favored those. The real reason was this- I’d cringe. Yep, there, I said it. Sorry everyone but it’s true. Yes, he was the same age I am now and even trained very differently but alas, I still cringed even watching it again recently. He did some videos promoting the match about “following” him to Barcelona and he and Orlando fought for almost 30 minutes. Many wrestlers today are quite active even past the age Warrior was in Spain but it felt different to me. ❤️‍🩹

I was so grateful he was able to be there but seriously, I did not want him hurt even though in some ways he was. Of course it wasn’t the same as his days of being Ultimate Warrior but he did many of his traditional signature moves which became nostalgic to see except a few biggies! I didn’t want this idea to come across as sad because that isn’t my intention at all. I’m just being honest as I am. I love that Warrior could make a return to the ring and have the match that he did. Once again though, another moment to remember that us fans will have thanks to all he did.

Have you ever had that one chance again to prove you could still do something from your past? Not for a lengthy time but just for a moment or a day to engage in an activity you loved. I could still teach preschool as a sub if I wanted to. Maybe a curriculum might be a little different but I could, easy. It needs to be an area of your life you’ve moved away from for a while but could just relearn or pick up again. It doesn’t even need to be a former profession but maybe another skill or trade you’ve abandoned and possibly get coerced into trying again. I bet most of us still want to prove either to ourselves or to others that those yesteryear talents exist if we make them reappear. Just always do it for the right reasons as am sure you can figure those out. Warrior explained all his reasons on video to us fans.

Many of us think back to a time in our lives when we were let’s say more athletic, prettier, and all that because of youth. You CAN be athletic again if you start anything. You ARE prettier, you just need to feel it to believe it. Some old ways are meant to be put away to never resurface but in little doses, they can still be part of your life. How about seeing an old friend of yours that you haven’t connected with in years? They might be in town briefly or just for a day. Some may find it awkward or try to impress but some may pick up where they left off as if nothing had changed. I guess it would depend on the person or situation. We might have to adjust but then it could feel like home all over again. Warrior had to train hard for his return match but never forgot his old wrestling moves.

So, warriors- you can have a great comeback or return to something you loved even for that brief moment in time. Just make it ultimately yours in the best way. You can prove that you still have what it takes while tackling whatever is on your “to-do” list for that return. I hope you don’t cringe in the process but I know Warrior isn’t mad at me for that. At least I hope not! I bet the girls remember that special time as am sure they’ll have stories of their own to share. Take pride in knowing you did something or had something pretty important once and you’ll never forget it. Sure, it may not be the same now but some of it can be. Prove that it’s still part of you by reflecting or acting. You get to decide if it’s a one day return or more. That was Warrior’s last match in a wrestling ring but he makes his return every time we see him on videos again.

Go for that return just once and see how it makes you feel. You don’t need to be famous or 10 years older. Just one day do it for you, even if nobody’s watching…

P.S. I totally forgot from “The Tamer Rockstar” post to list the 80’s song “Amanda” by Boston! Yes, I hear it often too (:

P.P.S. Just recently I posted my “Ultimate Warrior Numerology” video on the U.W. fb group and forgot a BIG number connector. Warrior had won the 1984 Jr. Bodybuilding Mr. Georgia title in New Orleans and then 30 years later, he gets inducted into the WWE HOF during WMXXX weekend again in New Orleans… How about that?

Follow Your Destiny ðŸ’™ðŸ’ªðŸ»

“Take one step towards the gods and they will take ten toward you.”

~Joseph Campbell

Hi ya warriors! It’s now 2022, hard to imagine. Make those New Years Resolutions achievable because as warriors, it’s what we do! I love that quote above because it just reminds me of how the Ultimate Warrior referenced those gods and boy, did they deliver for his success. Plus, Warrior mentioned Joseph Campbell as an inspiration while he continued following his own destiny.

Are you following yours? Some may not be fully aware but if you are loving what you do, that’s a clue. 😏 I wanted to show a pic of Warrior’s Gym since that became part of his destiny also. It may not have been around that long but he took a chance and went for it anyway. Warrior wanted to be a businessman and entrepreneur so he listened to his inner voice which kept leading him towards his destiny. We do need to take those risks sometimes despite potential outcomes and Warrior had plenty of those. Have any of you ever or are you still running your own business? If it wasn’t successful, do you live with regret or accept it as a lesson in your destiny?

Fear does hold us back but we’ll never know what experiences we can have if we don’t ever try.

My father-in-law years ago ran a bar for many years with a good friend called “The Brew Room.” It was risky and upset my mother-in-law ( so I’ve heard) but was profitable for many years. It kept him away during nighttime hours but brought in extra cash the family needed. When it failed, there was some resentment but they followed an idea which was their destiny.

I knew of two other ladies who opened a business that thrived for a bit and then closed their doors for good. One was a restaurant which hosted some yoga events and the other was a cute little children’s resale shop. I loved “The Lazy Beehive” for its nice relaxing atmosphere that wasn’t far from my house near a small college town. It appealed to almost everyone and the college kids had a bar next door. I guess she wasn’t “college” enough to stick around and got bad-mouthed by some in the community. It was so unfortunate and very sad. 🐝 The owner is now pursuing a degree in the medical profession I believe which became her true destiny after all.

The children’s shop was another favorite of mine as there were tons of affordable clothes, toys, books, and more for young kids. I even sold her many of my babies outgrown or done being played with items. This woman was very successful with her business and seemed to be doing quite well. We became friends and knew of each others backgrounds and families. It was always such good conversation. She outgrew the space and moved to a bigger location. The shop wasn’t there long until it closed permanently. I was so upset and shocked as she seemed to be thriving in that area. Never did I find out the real reasons as to why “Smarty Pants” folded. She sold a lot but maybe it was the rent, who knows? Again, she followed a destiny and took that chance. *BTW- both places closed before the pandemic hit. One was several years before and one was a few months before…

I am also not fully aware of the stories behind Warrior’s Gym failing. He did charge for membership of course but couldn’t sustain it over a time. It was a huge place so am sure money factored in. In typical Warrior style, he moved on to other creative ventures and remained positive. I know he had bittersweet memories there as that place is where he met Dana and their story began. It fit perfectly for his lifestyle and pursuing something new outside of wrestling for a while besides a few other projects. I had heard of it of course years ago but no idea on any videos at the time. Very grateful he had some workout sessions filmed and now available on YouTube. He put so much out there for us fans now to find and still felt inspired knowing he had a destiny to fulfill.

No one knows fully how their life will unfold exactly or how we follow those inner callings all of us have. Some things work, others don’t. Some are for a lifetime while others are only for a brief time. Whatever the outcome, at least you can stand proud and know you went for it despite fear, naysayers, or any other excuse. It may not be a business decision but anything that gets you thinking outside that same old comfort zone. Ask those gods for help and they’ll deliver in one way or another. It will worth it in the end.

*** A side note*** I have another possible podcast opportunity soon as a fellow local sportscaster author I know read my book Spirit and Belief. He reviewed it on Amazon and wants me as a guest! He recently wrote his 10th book I believe and it is all about his mom’s incredible fight for survival. I knew of his mom’s battle but not the details. Check out “Fight, Maria, Fight!” by Vince McKee on Amazon. I couldn’t put it down! She is a true Warrior survivor!!!

*** He dated my youngest sister in high school and we recently reconnected thru our books and social media. If you are a sports nut, find his other books as well (: He was and still is a huge fan of wrestling and we always bonded over that! Ironically, his name is Vince although it is really Vincenzo… He is following his destiny also. Kee on Sports Media Group has a website, YouTube channel, and a Twitter page. They also cover our local football games here! 🏀🏈⚾️🤼‍♀️🥊

*** I also want to thank some new YouTube subscribers to my channel. The Warrior Bio has now reached over 1000 views, that’s quite a goal. 💙 This is part of my destiny too as I continue forward sharing my messages. Follow yours- successes and lessons. There are no failures. 2022~ a true destiny we can make come true!

Warrior Year in Review

Well, this is it until 2022 warriors. I’ll be taking a few weeks off for family stuff as this year ends. What a year with these writings! First, I have to explain the photo you see of Warrior in the NWC (National Wrestling Conference) above. I won’t get into the details of how that came to be but again, wanted to show another opportunity he had outside of his WWF/WCW days. This took place in Las Vegas back in 1995 I believe. I had this image in my head for a bit of that exact look of Warrior but couldn’t remember specifics. I kept thinking it was about bodybuilding which Vince did promote with his WBF( World Bodybuilding Federation.) It was driving me nuts since I thought that would make a great photo! For some reason, I kept thinking either Mean Gene Okerlund or Sean Mooney was interviewing Warrior but I had some things right. I could picture the background just not the exact letters and I knew he was blond wearing jeans and sunglasses. 😎

Finally, I decided to ask some Ultimate Warrior Facebook group members. One guy posted an interview with Warrior and it wasn’t bodybuilding like I thought, it was the NWC and Bill Anderson instead of Gene or Sean. Redemption! I looked it up and found what was racking my brain for days. Glad I asked as Youtube wasn’t helping me out much. Bill Anderson is part of my year in review. I didn’t know of everyone back in the day and he even announces “The Weasel Match” on the Ultimate Collection DVD (: So glad to find out his history and friendship with Warrior over the years. Warrior even acknowledges him in his HOF speech. 💙

Let’s see… So many highlights, where to begin? I guess for most fans it would have to be those biographies of Warrior shown back in May. I have talked about them PLENTY… My video has almost 1,000 views so I continue to be shocked. Thank you all for the interest. I was also stunned to speak with Daniel Amigone who directed the A&E documentary. Despite some content, just to be contacted was a big thrill for me.

A few others that come to mind as being part of this review are my posts on intensity and “The Whole Time.” Intensity is a word I never talked about even though many others identified it with the Ultimate Warrior character. I always overlooked it since overused it became. I finally wrote a story but it’s kinda like the whole time post. I had never used a pic of U.W. slamming anyone when that also was iconic to the character. Never in my media of photos had I used him getting ready to do that gorilla press and just like my movie references, it was there the whole time.

I cannot possibly forget a few milestones concerning dates like WMVII and XII celebrating 30 and 25 plus falling on Wednesdays when warrior writings comes out. Not to mention Warrior’s birthday falling on blog day this year as well. So many things… I was grateful to have found several podcasts, YouTube videos, and more in 2021. I especially enjoyed listening to Steve Wilton and Peter Pallis since they were so integral with Warrior’s later years of business and friendship. I was humbled that Steve and I connected and he was able to answer my questions when I asked. That was the biggest WOW moment for me personally thru all this. He took the time to communicate despite my sometimes crazy stories! 😬I thank him profusely. He even watched my video on the Warrior bio and was very proud.

I had a few emails from fans of Warrior too and have saved each one. Some think I am Steve or Dana, it’s kinda funny. 😂They were amazing to contact me and share their stories from across the miles. Warrior was truly inspirational to them and they trusted me enough to care. I never even knew “The Miz” got into wrestling because of the Ultimate Warrior and that as a little boy, he idolized him. I wasn’t expecting to hear that since I don’t truly follow but exciting all at once. He is also the first inductee for the 2022 HOF class. I thought you had to be retired? Hmmm… 🤔

If you’ve been reading a while, you also know of a few more dreams that have been written. There was a couple with Dana plus Warrior guiding me to receive energy healing work. All incredible and I am in awe of everything I receive. I even used a photo with Dana for the first time ever. Speaking of dreams, my cousin and I finally filmed our “Aura of Dreams” video series which turned out pretty great! You can find that on my YouTube channel and of course Warrior is a topic along with my book Spirit and Belief.

Another brief video series I want to mention quickly is “Daze with Jordan the Lion.” He does travel vlogs and was able to see a few places in Warrior’s life. Gold’s Gym, Warrior University, ( more on that soon!) and the hotel parking lot where he passed are featured. Yes, the last one was upsetting but to see the other spaces was kinda cool especially since the bagel shop has kept some things intact from Warrior’s Gym. I thought that was special. Jordan had mentioned in the future possibly going to Warrior’s hometown of Crawfordsville, IN. We’ll see what happens…

So, I can mention a ton more but think I’ll leave it at that. I have used some photos from the U.W. fb groups so those were a bonus. Some I had never seen before. There is content they put out I am not always in agreement upon but who knows how it will continue to go? Next year will begin with new writings and I already have a few ideas. I’m always thinking but do need a mental and emotional break. Early April brings some other number connections and one you might know but I have more up my sleeve or should I say boots!

I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year as this upcoming one will be very busy for my family. Time needs to slow down sometimes… Until We Meet Again, enjoy the Holiday Season and catch up while you’re waiting on more writings! * That was another emotional post for me as well. * ~~~ Kathy

P.S. While Holiday shopping in a few new stores, they had lots of goodies perfect for me (: I even saw “Warrior” soap! Maybe I’ll go back in the summer since it’s for insect bites. Also, one store attached a poem to my bag about taking care of yourself. It reads:

“You’re weary but you’re a warrior.” ~~~ I am saving that. 😉

The Tamer Rockstar ðŸŽ¼ðŸŽ¸

This photo is somewhat out of center since I had to cut off a little girl who is probably close to 40 by now. Do any of you fans remember “Amanda Ultimate Warrior?” I’ll link her appearance on “The Brother Love Show” at the end. It gets my heart every time. I would LOVE chatting with her now, wonder what happened to her? So, most that saw the Ultimate Warrior back then with little face paint or just his logo like above, thought he had softened his image and in many ways he did. He started as a rockstar of sorts who became a little tame as years went on. I always wondered how it all came to be with his changes. Was it mostly Vince or were some of the ideas Warrior’s?

Some say they wanted to soften his look to be more like Hulk Hogan. Not exactly I know but possibly more approachable, less intimidating to fans, or whatever else. I always loved when his face paint peeled off but people liked it on since it identified the character. I have said this before. Let’s see what things changed besides his face. Blonder hair, less screaming in promos with more actual talking, having kids around in interviews like Amanda, etc.

In the beginning, the Ultimate Warrior was like that crazy nonsensical rockstar running around to his “Unstable” theme music, shaking ropes, thumping his chest, and so much more. Sure, he still did those things later on but his physical appearance just changed a bit. He must’ve liked the blonde hair look since that stayed throughout many years after he left the business, came back, and resurfaced yet again in 1998. The length changed too over the years. He even got an earring and tattoo later on which many weren’t doing at the time.

Have you ever felt the need to change something or perhaps many things about yourself to please another? Yes, I know with Warrior it was for different reasons but I always wondered about the stories behind it all. Did he agree just because he was the new Heavyweight champ? O.K., I have had my hair highlighted or done things differently than the norm but never did I feel like I had to do something drastic for a job. Many wrestlers change their look several times over the years but man, the backlash over Warrior and a few “new” things got people talking. Am sure the higher-ups felt some aspects with the character needed to move in a different direction and we as fans embraced it all, well we had to didn’t we? He even become quite smaller which started other rumors…

If any of us reset our physical traits, it’s usually because we want to or at least that’s how it should be. Kids will do things to get approval from friends but we as adults know better. We still want approval but just in other ways. When I became blonde, ( yes there were a few pics on here!) I did it for fun. I even had a pink streak in it for a while. Blondes don’t necessarily have more fun as the saying goes but it’s what we make of it. I just wanted to try something different I hadn’t before. Fame has its own rules though.

Am sure you can possibly think of someone who maybe had a certain reputation for years and then instead of a physical change, it was more of their personality that changed. I had talked about “sowing your wild oats” when younger and then when we age, maturity and tamer ways creep in. Sometimes, it needs to based on our life experiences and yet sometimes people hold on to their old ways. Warrior kept his long hair for a while but then fatherhood later on made him lop off his locks. Some won’t let that go since it so defines them like Hulk or even someone like Bret Hart. Everyone is different but Warrior wanted and needed to move past the hair that defined him.

Well, that’s enough about that as hair was also part of a past post but it is an obvious difference. Warrior bald- now that shocked a lot of people who followed him later on. We all tend to hold on to things in other ways because it’s like our security blanket. Sometimes though, you gotta drop the blanket Linus and move on. Despite all those attributes that made the Ultimate Warrior evolve, he still was that rockstar to me. Of course it was in a much other way and even though he became somewhat tame, it was still him underneath it all.

That’s what we all need to be. No matter what types of changes we go through physically, our inner person will remain the same. We may need to adapt somewhat but our core is still us and Warrior never wavered on his. There were many that have tried to duplicate the Ultimate Warrior but none truly succeeded because they weren’t really him. Maybe some were fooled but I never was. Amanda Ultimate Warrior and those other kids got to see their rockstar hero become a little tamer. It worked for a few but others missed his wilder ways. I loved it all because to me, behind that exterior was a man with a great message of belief in yourself. That meant so much more than any rockstar performance he put on with paint, no paint, blond or no hair, screaming or whispering. Whether or not he wanted to be tamed, the character succeeded. You’ll always be a rockstar Warrior- in or out of the ring. Plus, he ROCKS too as the most ultimate spirit!
