Spirit and Belief News!

It’s my birthday so wanted this post to be all about the exciting events happening with my book Spirit and Belief! #thankyouWarrior

I was interviewed last night by my spiritual group — Harmonic Journeys for their podcast. I thank Mary for her friendship, support, and the conversation. Can’t wait to have it posted on here for all of you to listen! I shared my journey of spiritual gifts, Warrior stories, and where to find me. It was a great time (: I will post their link below if anyone is interested in them or the podcasts.

That was great practice for another interview I have coming soon for a nationally syndicated radio show! I was contacted by LitFire Publishing to participate in some marketing ideas for my book so am thrilled to share and educate all I can. Kate Delaney of America Tonight will be conducting the interview and I’ll post her info and bio below as well. She has interviewed people in sports, politics, (she spoke with Jesse Ventura about politics!) news, celebrities, and she is an author herself. Once that comes out, I’ll have it available and would love your feedback Warrior fans!

I am also participating in another Author Library Conference in October. This time, instead of a small table discussion with another author– there will be over 50! Very excited to converse with fellow writers and aspiring authors while sharing my spiritual journey. Who knows? Maybe I’ll get some Warrior “vibes” that day like last time!!!

What’s going on with YOU Warrior fans? I would love to hear your stories, fan memories, if you feel him spiritually, or anything you’d like to share. I know it takes guts to leave a comment but we’re all fans so no pressure! I just love hearing how he inspired others too besides me so FEEL FREE, no judging here. You can also connect with me on my YouTube page, amazon, or I do have an Amazon Author Page that is up and running. My other blog is linked to that but info for the book is available there too.

I wish you all great ultimate success with whatever you are working on in your life and continue crushing those goals! Mr. Warrior would want nothing less of you so do the work everyday. Let me know your Ultimate Warrior memories, come on— I KNOW you all have plenty!

โ€œDo You Want to go Play Some Games?โ€

I bet you warrior fans are trying so hard connecting this title with that photo! I must admit it is kinda weird so let me explain… ๐Ÿ˜œ This story fits in the “dream” category but I love this title so much better. Plus, “The Wedding Reception Dream” sounded too much like “The Wedding Near Smoothie King” and this title is way funnier! Another dream that was very odd but decided to share it anyway. That just leaves one more I haven’t told so probably a no on that one… ๐Ÿ˜‰too silly and brief!

Last May of 2017, I attended a cousin’s wedding out of town. The reception was by the lake and we all had such a great time celebrating this young couple. Fast forward about 5 months later when this “new” dream with Warrior occurred. My childhood backyard was the location of a wedding reception involving the bride’s sister of 5 months prior. Um, what? I couldn’t even remember her having a sister! Why in the world would this be the setting and for someone I didn’t even know? I have learned sometimes that doesn’t matter.

I do remember as a child always thinking of our family’s backyard to be a great space for a wedding reception. Perhaps my brain just took the last one I went to and found a new bride! I was upstairs in my old bedroom looking down at all the beautiful scenery with lots of white lights strewn about. There were tables and chairs everywhere and the party had started. Again– another question as to why I was alone looking out…? Hmm… Anyway, while spanning the crowd, I saw Warrior wearing his gray and red suit you see in the photo!

My mouth fell open as I literally flew down the stairs and out the door! Once outside, I couldn’t find him anywhere until my mom and brother pointed in the direction of where he went. Guess they were helping me out! I actually found him and realized I forgot my phone to snap a photo of us together. He seemed rushed as a man was ushering him elsewhere but said he’d be right back. What in the world was going on? Why was he even here?

That gave me time to go all the way back and grab my phone. I found him again in the crowd and said what a fan I was (am) while probably babbling incoherently, who knows???!!! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜† We took a few photos ( so awesome in most of these dreams!) but then I asked why he was here as he didn’t know anyone. I was so confused but all he did was laugh without really answering me.

Before the dream ended, he asked me: “Do You Want to go Play Some Games?” The couple were video game arcade fanatics and there were many placed throughout the yard. I couldn’t believe he was asking me this while no mention of wrestling, his life now, family, or anything else. I just stood there not fully knowing what to say as he walked in the direction of the games. I followed him towards that area and woke up. No idea if we ever played any or not. ๐ŸŽฎ

WOW… I’m not a professional dream interpreter but most of mine are easy to figure out. This one like a few others, not so much. I do remember Dana saying how she wished he’d “played more.” Not sure if she meant games with the girls (probably not!) or just having fun more in general. I played with my kids when they were little but as they age… sigh.., Maybe I was privy to new information. Maybe he IS playing games with all his wrestling buddies now like he seldom did on Earth? Maybe so……. I still think little things are funny and you know what? Warrior does too! I am proof of this time and again with my synchronicities.

I also must admit that after I had the first few dreams of him as a wrestler, I asked for one of him like the Warrior of today. I say today because it’s true. Well, I got several of him looking like the guy similar in the photo and my dreams equal 6. Another funny little joke of ours with that number and yes, I laughed again remembering them all. They have all mostly been written! I’ve had others mentioning him but without his presence. I will take them all as they show me so much on this journey.

I never know what the storyline or setting will be just like back in his prime days of wrestling but if he is part of it, I am watching or participating. ***Ask for some dreams warriors– you just may get a few good ones. Don’t forget to play some games along the way! #besilly #dreambig #alwaysbelieve

~~~Next week it’s my BIRTHDAY so what better way than to share great exciting news happening for my book! Can’t wait to fill you all in!! Happy Dreaming warriors! ๐Ÿ˜ด

Warrior Book Event

Last week, I had the pleasure of sharing my book Spirit and Belief at beautiful Namaste Life Center. Theresa had it all so wonderfully inviting as I walked into that back room feeling so overwhelmed and humbled. Immediately, I felt at home and welcomed. Despite those in attendance being few, all listened, contributed, and supported me on my journey.

One woman related her time spent working at the restaurant in the old Richfield Coliseum here in Ohio and a wrestler she encountered. She asked me to describe the Ultimate Warrior and the years he was in the business. That was a great memory for me to describe! A wrestler with short hair (probably not Warrior, lol!) left a “script” for her as a gift! Wow, how exciting and fun getting that. Too bad she lost it after keeping it almost thirty years….. ๐Ÿ˜•

Another woman told me to “never doubt myself” as I don’t yet always am humbled while my lightheadedness began. Don’t worry since that’s a good sign of mine! She also said the hair on the back of her head was standing up as I was speaking. I asked if that was common for her and she truly believed Warrior was present. โค๏ธ I was filled with such gratitude once again.

The owner commented after I briefly shared the Cavs/Warrior basketball stories in my book. As most of you might know, numbers and dates are huge with me. I discussed June 16th being Warrior’s birthday and she interrupted. To summarize, as a child she was deeply affected by the movie Brian’s Song while crying buckets for a long time. She never forgot that and decided with her abilities to finally sign up for www.ancestry.com After much research, she found out Brian Piccolo whose life the movie is based upon, was a seventh cousin of hers. Yes, that’s quite far back but STILL a huge deal to be connected. Brian Piccolo died on June 16th, just sayin’… Who knows with Warrior but I will forever wonder.

It was such a great afternoon just hanging with these beautiful spiritual people and sharing our experiences together. They came to listen to me without judgment or disbelief. I got asked questions about meditation and what techniques work best. I felt so honored sharing what works for me. I have an entire blog post on www.spiritandbelief.com and a YouTube video on meditation so hopefully, she’ll get some ideas!

I was always so inspired with Warrior’s teachings and now others are inspired by mine. I never would’ve even guessed that about myself but am owning my stories with pride. Some have even had many more spiritual experiences than mine and I did get asked if I ever was scared. My answer was no based on my signs and trust. I gotta say though if I had something more extreme, that could change! Intimidated–sometimes but fearful, never.

It felt so natural speaking to these people while injecting my humor too! I mentioned Dana, Steve, and other newer experiences blogged about but not in the book. Can’t wait to possibly plan another event there as the energy was so positive with these like-minded people.

We can be inspired but then need to be the inspiration as Warrior has said. Just the other day, I ran into an old friend who I had lost touch with. After a few years of just connecting on Facebook, the hair salon brought us back together. We chatted in-between highlights as she proceeded to tell me how I always inspired her. Who, me? I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. We always did sit together at PTA meetings but no idea of her admiration for me.

Some of our “situations” always connected us but she had been thinking of me lately. She even coined a new phrase: ” What would Kathy do?” I felt dazed yet so guided as my confidence inspires her. Wow… Talk about a Warrior Woman moment. She brought up past memories when I followed the beat of my own drum and did things my way. Why yes, I still do that but to be told of your influence doesn’t happen often– at least not to me. We will stay in touch as I admire her tenacity to juggle so much in her life all the time.

Be inspired but also be the inspiration even if you don’t think you can or are. Little moments surprise us but then the big planned ones can too. I had a big planned event and then an unexpected one that both overtook me with such joy. As I am looking up outside, I see a dragonfly. Oh, and those blue jay feathers keep coming just about everyday. It’s beautiful and humorous all at once. There’s that inspiration yet again warriors…….

Podcast, Vacation, and my SIGN …

Did any of you Warrior fans listen to Dana’s Total Warriors episode 3- Friday, July 13th? I certainly did and the spirituality topic was of course perfect for me. She had Lacey Evans of the WWE but also some special guests on a “ghost” centered podcast. Alia Moon is a tarot card reader and Herman Petrick an energy cleanser. I knew Dana believed in some aspects of “parts unknown.” I had no idea of her stories behind consulting a “ghost hunter” with their old house and her interest in the Tarot. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒต

To hear her tell the tales of Casa de Warrior and all its haunts thru the years made the whole hour and a half plus fly by like a rocket ship for me! ๐Ÿš€ My heart skipped a beat as she relayed the noises heard shortly after Warrior’s passing that made her and the girls believe. Warrior was their fierce protector who fought death’s battle and the evil spirits surrounding his family. I have never been a skeptic so it is phenomenal to me of our shared beliefs in the unexplained phenomena.

I don’t practice Tarot but do use other divination tools. I have an angel card deck and would love an animal one too! Whether one relates to this or not, we all must do what our heart calls us to do. I agree with Dana about it being positive and encouraging, not negative and discouraging. Clearing our space is what needs to be done sometimes and this has become more acceptable in society nowadays. If it works and makes you feel better, good for you. Always respect even if you don’t agree.

My next topic concerns our recent vacation to West Virginia. We went white water rafting, hiked up a HUGE mountain, and rode a tram with our dog. We even brought our cat on her first trip and she did great! Anyways, as we approached the WVA state sign, I noticed the Governor’s name. His name is Jim Justice. Ring a ๐Ÿ›Ž anyone? For all of you not familiar, that was the name Warrior used when he and Sting wrestled as the Freedom Fighters. Once again, a little chuckle from me… ๐Ÿ˜โ›ฐ๐Ÿ›ถ๐Ÿšƒ

This brings me to the last story which involves my phone. Well, it just stopped working the day we were leaving. I had nothing. Just a dark screen with no buttons lighting up to show anything. I had it charging all night and tried another outlet but nothing worked. My husband looked up some info and tried a few things but I panicked… The apps I could get back but my mind went to photos and videos saved. I didn’t need it then but isn’t it amazing how reliant we are on technology these days? There wasn’t even one clock in our cabin, not one! Too remote for me…

The whole car trip back I tried REALLY hard to not think about any “what ifs” with the phone. An expert will help us at the store when we return so distract yourself already! I looked at some of my spiritual books or listened to music and for me, that was the best thing.

Finally, I decided to ask for help in a different way that was less panic-filled. I said to the Universe if I could have a sign– whatever it was but something just to reassure me all would be o.k. with my anxiety. I had to let it all go even though it was a challenge. When we got to the store a few hours later, the guy fixed it in no time and all was well. What a relief and yet such a silly thing to obsess over.

About an hour after that, I found three blue jay feathers in different parts of my yard. A great spiritual number and I always think of a three count!!! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป No signs on the road since patience needs to be practiced but these feathers brought tears and laughter. I first got a blue jay feather a few years ago when asking for validation from Warrior and now seem to have the most of those. That is my sign from him and after hearing Dana mentioning ladybugs ๐Ÿž with Indy, validation wins again my friends. I felt goofy for overreacting yet guided knowing my request was heard by receiving feathers since they are my main sign.

Tarot, energy cleansing, feathers, and anything you believe in will guide you along your spiritual path. I am so glad Dana had this as her topic on Total Warriors and so glad she is a warrior woman of Belief like me! Thank you Warrior for your life and protection always!!!!!!!

Warriorโ€™s Workout Wisdom

Here we are again with yet another funny story I hesitated to write. It concerns Steve Wilton who managed Warrior for several years and runs Ultimate Creations. This also concerns the power of words and that ability we all have internally when working with spirit energy. The title should be Warrior’s Workout Wisdom for Wilton so let’s blast off!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿคฃ

First off, one of the reasons I hesitated to share this experience was the fact that it involved Steve and is kinda personal. Besides Dana and the girls, Steve is right up there too and I would NEVER EVER disrespect or misrepresent ANYTHING pertaining to any of them. This story doesn’t do that but I never wanted to expose it in a misconstrued way. I firmly believe Steve and I would get along and in many ways, our respect for Warrior goes hand in hand. I do mention Steve in The Mysterious Batteries chapter of my book Spirit and Belief.

A few years back on twitter, Steve had just tweeted about a killer leg workout. He mentioned how much he’d probably hurt the next day, maybe overdoing it, not being able to move, etc. It was very similar to those words. I remember reading that and my reaction totally caught me off guard. I scoffed to myself and said: ( insert scoff) ” What a baby, suck it up, quit your crying!” Right away, I gasped and covered my mouth. Surely I would NEVER say that and much less to someone I don’t know! I wasn’t just thinking that but said it out loud which made it sound even worse. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿค

I have no idea how hard Steve works out or how he trains so who was I to make comments like that, even to myself? After sorta laughing, I really began thinking how those were Warrior comments~~~ not mine. I wanted so badly to tell Steve but had to plan the right approach. If I just tweeted that, he would be so offended and I wouldn’t blame him.

He would say: “Excuse me lady, but you have no idea what I just did and let’s see you do my workout!” No way could I risk talking to him like that and then an ultimate idea came to me. I would start with : ” Warrior would probably say…” and then go into the baby stuff. Well, I tweeted back and did see some comments but they were all from men as usual talking about fitness or what they do. Nothing like mine and no real mention of Warrior but maybe just asking if it was intense like his were back then.

I did get a tweet back and Steve said: ” That’s exactly what Warrior would say!” Just the fact that he responded was great in itself but his tweet validated my words. Most fans probably know how intense and extremely disciplined Warrior was and both Steve and Dana both have mentioned working out with him years ago. I never would’ve shared this story at the time but with them becoming more public on some topics, I feel like now I can.

That experience coincided with many of the other major Warrior events so for me, this was undisputed! This was not my first match with Warrior along those spiritual signs. Yes, you can have words sent to you that you’d never say and believe me since many of my writings happened like that. I was even thinking this blog might be done but then more stories I remembered needed to be told.

You can say people might’ve said the same thing as I did to Steve or that he could’ve responded back the same way but that didn’t happen. Once signs show up for you, it can become pretty consistent so pay attention!

Steve and I also discussed other topics besides Warrior on twitter and it was always so fun joking around with him. I know he joked with Warrior and now I am too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I can’t imagine training with Warrior but I like to think without quitting that my body could take it– just ONE time only. I would probably throw up like Dana did but what an experience to have and always remember… ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ‘ Maybe his workout isn’t wisdom for everyone but this warrior girl will take anything~~~ even in spirit. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

My โ€œPouchieโ€ Faith

I have gone back and forth a while now on whether or not to tell this story but with Warrior’s birthday a few days away, it’s time to share it with you. Let’s back up a few years with an episode of “The Goldbergs.” Adam Goldberg was a huge Ultimate Warrior fan and they have referenced wrestling a few times on the show. I love this show since the 80’s were a coming of age decade for me and am so glad Dana loves it too.

The beginning of an episode had the character of Adam dancing and lip syncing in his bedroom to the song “Faith” by George Michael. Good thing I didn’t go upstairs then to say goodnight to my daughter or would’ve missed the whole thing! Am sure most of you know the lyrics and this was the very beginning of the song. In the background on his shelves were The Ultimate Warrior and “Macho Man” Randy Savage wrestling buddy dolls! I will always picture that scene every time I hear “Faith” and still do. Warrior and Randy together again for a memory of mine.

Fast forward a few years to just a couple of months ago. I had been thinking of a way to get my book to Dana even though it was a long shot but the thought remained. I was driving home from my hair appointment and turned on the radio. The song playing was “Faith” by George Michael. I smiled and sang along like I always do. It was then that I noticed this car’s license plate stopped next to me at a light. The plate said “POUCHIE” and I thought of Dana.

Warrior had called her “poochie” and she has mentioned this periodically. He even acknowledged her in the crowd as “pooch” during his HOF speech. It was spelled differently but I still noticed. Then, I started saying “pouchie faith” just for fun since I always believe! It could’ve been “pouchy” with its pronunciation but to me, it was “poochie!”

The next few weeks “pouchie faith” stayed in my head whether or not I heard “Faith” on the radio. A month or so later, Dana started her podcast “Total WARRIORS.” As previous readers know, I called in and was able to speak with her. That was my “pouchie faith” revealing itself to me. Not “poochie” or getting my book to her, but I’ll take it!

Let’s look at this from another angle I have said before. It’s so much fun with a group of threes whether you think like a three count or spiritually. It’s been magical and I can attest to that. The wrestling buddy doll, ( again!) the song “Faith,” and a license plate (again!) I can’t forget “The Goldbergs” which started it all lining up.

You can have your “faith” however it works for you whether it’s a show, song, or license plate. Whatever way you choose, just believe and those signs will appear. I wasn’t too sure about this post as it concerns a term of endearment Warrior used for Dana but she has been very open with it so now it’s my turn.

I know the Warrior Girls will remember Warrior this Sat. the 16th in the best way that works for them and I will too. โค๏ธ He will be with his “poochie” and girls while sending them all his love. I am continually humbled and grateful for all the opportunities I have been given sharing my Warrior moments, even though some are extremely personal. Like he said: “ the right story is the full story…”

Share yours since you never know who might be reading, listening, or becoming impacted. I am forever thankful Warrior shared his, Dana is sharing hers, and now I can share mine. Get that “Faith” and keep it!

P.S. I recently took my first Zumba class and the instructor’s name was Dana. She played the song “Faith” by George Michael. I REALLY had to keep it together without laughing!!! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚

~~~ Happy Birthday Warrior ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐ŸŒปโšก๏ธ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโœ๐Ÿป ~~ I am that storyteller keeping your legacy alive…

Lights on… Lights off…

The basement is where I do some of my workout five days a week with lots of cardio. This light shines behind me as I step along to Pandora while on the elliptical machine. There is another light above my husband’s workout bench and I’ve used that one sometimes but it’s too much of a spotlight on me. I’ve had some flickering lights happen before and that little story is in my book Spirit and Belief. This light, however; did something different.

Several months ago while jamming along to some of my favorite 80’s tunes, it just went out. Oh no! I was in the dark and couldn’t really see the machine. Really though– with all the other types of signs I’d had these past few years, how could I doubt? I just kept going while giggling to myself at this new “sign” I’d received. It did come back on before I left so this got me intrigued.

The logical me did check the bulb like anyone else would. I tapped it a few times and no flickering so it wasn’t starting to wear out. It wasn’t loose either. I knew this was spirit energy working with me. Could Warrior have sent his energy messing with me in a good way? It is extremely possible considering my journey so far. I know what all you very rational people are thinking and no– I am not naive or believe everything is him. You always have to ask questions with specifics and rule stuff out.

This was the first time a light had entirely gone out so no flickering this time and I had to cover all the bases ( or four corners of the ring!) Sometimes, my eyes are closed since I really try to connect with the music without distractions and the light goes out. I open my eyes and am surprised in a goofy yet grateful way. This is not a regular occurrence but electricity is very easy for spirits to manipulate and not to be feared.

I realize this can be a different type of subject for those not familiar but if you know me, I have never been afraid but very open-minded. This light going out was not my first encounter with signs obviously and based on what I was doing, it worked for me. Dana had mentioned the “Daddy lights” flickering in their old house and I never forgot that. The music connects too and I want so badly to remember a certain song playing but I just can’t! It did relate to Warrior in a big way and I knew right away.

Here’s some of that humor many maybe thought he lacked. This incident I do remember for a few reasons. It was Friday, April 13th and I really didn’t think much about it. Ok, maybe a little but not a thought with the light involved. Friday the 13th and a full moon! Oh boy, what could this mean? Animals and kids act a little nutty but nothing personal with me much, maybe I’m lucky??? ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿคช I was halfway done in the basement that day went the light went out again. It hadn’t in a while and I never put the details together until later. It’s not directly connected to Friday the 13th and a full moon as you might think.

That date is also when the Undertaker put the Ultimate Warrior in a casket on the Funeral Parlor back in 1991. I never remembered that date exactly until owning The Ultimate Collection DVD but the event was never forgotten in my mind!!! I was so affected by that and hated every minute of it. Glad to hear they were friends but oh, the horror to me and those crazy emotions!!! ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ณ

I do believe Warrior’s energy made that light go out— especially on that date of Friday, April 13th and a full moon. ๐ŸŒ• HA-HA, very funny Warrior making me remember that awful experience! I knew that was in April but did have to check just to be sure. The songs do sometimes match up but not always and that’s ok. I always validate since he is taking the time connecting to me doing something he built his whole adult life upon. Some might think I am crazy and you are entitled to that.

I’m just here sharing and educating you on my experiences just in case any can relate. Also, if you think it’s super cool and very ultimate, you’re my kind of person! Even if you don’t, I thank you for having an open mind to anything on your journey.

I always remember that humor works, a person’s energy is the same in spirit, and that whole celebrity thing doesn’t matter! I never doubted these types of signs but just me receiving them. It’s different now and sometimes when I do ask for something, it happens! So many times this works and I am always so humbled.

Who knows what that light will do next but this warrior girl feels the energy and knows the signs. Let’s not forget the goosebumps but this isn’t about that… One time I even said: “Hey, I need the light back on before I go up so the switch doesn’t get messed up!” I reached for the chain and before pulling, it came back on (:

No other light in the house has entirely gone out but during my time alone in the basement, it does…

“Same Warrior time, same Warrior place, same Warrior channel!”
