The Silver Feathers

Are you aware of #ThrowbackThursday? Well, I’m gonna switch that today to #ThrowbackWednesday because I can! My reason is this story to share that relates to three others very similar. Those were about a candle lantern, a real sign, and a feather box. All have been blogged but the candle lantern story is told in my book Spirit and Belief. Those items were bought in actual stores but that feather necklace you see on the right was bought in the Amazon store.

The Ultimate Warrior had a feather earring somewhat similar to mine but is that why I bought it? OF COURSE NOT! Several months ago, I wanted some new jewelry that reflected my spiritual life now. Sometimes it’s just bad karma I guess since most of my stuff breaks! I just blogged about karma on my other site a few days ago… I love all my jewelry and wear most frequently so probably shouldn’t anymore.

Handmade pieces are the best because of the personal craftsmanship and time involved. Many spiritual shops or fairs will sell jewelry made of crystals or delicate gems. It’s so hard to decide. I had three crystal bracelets and all fell apart! Ugh.. I still display them but decided to move onto necklaces. A few I do have use these cord ties which come loose. What’s a girl to do? Buying in person is usually my thing but Amazon seemed the way to go. My pink quartz heart necklace with the Tree of Life always gets compliments but I wanted another. Feathers popped in my head and how perfect for this journey! Check out previous posts on feathers or in my book and you’ll know why. πŸ˜‰

This silver one caught my eye which made me look no further. Yay for stronger chains and these new necklaces are working out well. Little did I know or even remember Warrior sporting an earring or two back then. I seemed to recall a stud but a feather was too far to go back in the ‘ol noggin. The Ultimate Collection DVD is now almost 6 years old and never did I notice until recently. I actually used that image in “Longevity’s Long Life” if you look suuuper closely. He did have his mask as part of it but it wasn’t until a YouTube video made me notice more. I just laughed yet again at such a silly similarity! πŸ˜‚ After all, he did send me my first feather since I always believe. Here’s the 1st video you see above:

Have you ever noticed something for the first time warriors when it’s really been there all the time? For me, it seems to be a constant that doesn’t end- even years later. Items can serve you well even if you aren’t aware at the time. It all connects to synchronicity and your life. I’ve also mentioned my past with old VHS wrestling tapes. I would never notice something for years and then see it for the first time after owning it a while. For many of you it’s a little different as am sure it is! It can be anything but I’m talking about a personal connection that means something. Not just a new outfit or haircut. We’ve all watched our favorite shows or movies over and over again. Did you notice a scene or reaction of someone in a different way? I bet you have..

Maybe someone has done something anonymously for you without your knowledge over time? You can be like me with getting signs. Do you see something many times over again that seems significant but you shrug it off? Pay attention since those signs do mean a connector to you in some way. It doesn’t have to be feathers at all. I actually see the word warrior in just about every book I read-for real! Sometimes, it doesn’t even seem to fit at all. Now, I know better since without me knowing then, it IS the right book at the time.

Here’s a quick example: We recently got rid of our old bedroom carpet and now have this beautiful new gray wood flooring with a big area rug. What if this were you but felt intimidated taking on a massive project? Over the course of a few days, you hear the song: “Magic Carpet Ride” on the radio, a store is having a huge blow-out sale on flooring, and a friend mentions this new tapestry she just bought. That’s how it works warriors. Mine was kinda like that with the silver feathers. Broken bracelets, wanting something spiritual, finding the DVD image, and the YouTube video. So many stories have lined up that way with me on this ride with Warrior and it is truly ultimate!

Try to look at something in a different way for the first time. Really observe and you might notice a new perspective. It can be silly or extremely personal. Either way, your noticing matters and connects to YOU. I love my silver feather as a I know Warrior approves! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’™

P.S. I do have a “Warrior” totem engraved on a necklace. I didn’t even know that when first picking it up at a fair years ago. It’s similar to the “Warrior” crystals I have too. The string on the necklace broke but luckily I had an extra chain (: I’m wearing that necklace in the post “Speak Your Truth Warriors” blogged 10/17/18.

My OWN Wrestling Stories…

I always have wrestling stories warriors BUT these few are a little more personal to me. Just when I thought getting surprised by people wouldn’t faze me anymore, lo and behold– they do. My Dad is the subject for a bit today. Don’t think I’ve mentioned him much besides when he first introduced the WWF to our house in the early ’80’s. These stories had me smiling like I won a belt without even fully trying.

Several summers ago I invited my Dad to bring his dog over after dinner which he still does. He has this greyhound that loves running around the yard with our mutt. The kids were chasing the dogs and Dad and I sat on the patio. Randomly, he said how something of interest to me was in the paper a few days prior. My “wrestler friend’s” birthday was listed and he wanted to share that with me. Of course I know when Warrior’s birthday is but how sweet of him to say as I got a little nostalgic and teary. πŸ’”

Another time with Dad was last year at one of my daughter’s band concerts. He sat next to me and is quite the talker. Again, randomly mentions how he and his Dad (whom I never knew) went to a pro wrestling match many years ago when he was growing up in Michigan. WHAAT? Why am I just hearing this now and why at a concert? I don’t remember who they saw but never really thought he liked it much at all. It was just something he turned on the T.V. for us kids to watch. OMG…😳

Next, he discussed the days of Angelo Poffo (aka– Randy Savage’s Dad.) Where is this coming from? I was listening so intently while silently giggling during this concert. Again, he has a hard time being silent and despite my flute player, I just had to listen to him. He ended the conversation by saying how relieved he was to hear about Roman Reigns being in remission with leukemia. So great that you care Dad. πŸ’™ He rarely talked much about our ‘ol WWF performers back then but times do change and I am grateful for our talks. ***A side note– my Grandpa (whom I never knew) passed of a fatal heart attack in his early fifties similar to someone else…

Pro Wrestling really is part of my family in a way as I have realized many connectors. When this blog started, one story I mentioned contained a P.S. with my Great-Grandma following Gorgeous George. My Mom had told me this as his “demeanor” was quite similar to Randy Savage. They even used the same music! She followed Gorgeous George and my husband followed Andre the Giant. Sorta… You read that right. He’s my next topic.

This was another shocker that had me awed. Some may know how my husband wrestled in high school so the pros– well, it’s just fake to him and that’s it. We were eating dinner in a restaurant a few months ago during the football playoffs. Besides football being on, one T.V. was showing “real” wrestling. Huh? Who turns that on? No offense to anyone but that isn’t typical in a bar scene. We were taking and he proceeds to tell me how he DID watch Andre a few times back in the day. Once again, why do I not know this? Am sure Warrior would be laughing.. πŸ˜† I ran with this and went on and on about real injuries, entertainment, and such. I also said how I owned some movies as he might be aware if ever he wanted to watch??? A door had opened a little and I SLAMMED it open more. I probably overwhelmed him but first the “Fighting with My Family” movie and now this. Just WOW on my end.

The last family wrestling story is that of the “real” stuff on the bar T.V. My cousin was married to a guy that coached for years while also raising their two boys in the sport. One excelled better than the other but they surprised me. The one that excelled is NOT raising his three boys to be wrestlers but the other is. He also has coached them and all three of HIS boys are wrestlers. How ironic is that? I remember those two Dads as boys wrestling and now it becomes generational to one. Their Dad is beaming in Heaven… πŸ™πŸ» BTW– their Dad shared Warrior’s birthday year…

My cousin (their mother) and I just recently last summer connected spiritually . She was a young widow like Dana but remarried many years ago. No idea that she bought my book and has had spiritual gifts her whole life! Her middle son and daughter do also. Another surprising Wow moment as we have had many conversations. I feel so honored knowing our blood shares this beautiful gift of knowing the afterlife more. Neither of us knew of the other’s situation and I never would’ve guessed the many family stories she shared with me.

My wrestling stories may not be exactly like yours but we need to share to learn. You never know what WOW moments could be behind that wrestling “curtain.” Wrestling really is part of my family history and I OWN it always! πŸ€Όβ€β™€οΈπŸ’ͺ🏻

Exuberance of Energy πŸ’ͺ🏻

Energy. This word is everything. It is everywhere and makes up all beings including things. Such a powerful word and yet I ignored it. What I mean is when coming up with my book title a few years ago, I was kinda “forced” to find words. You see, I was part of the ALC or Author Learning Center and back then, it was great education for me. They had a possible timeline or outline of sorts for your book. You HAD to include certain info in order to move forward hypothetically but required for the ALC process. A few items were: possible date of release and of course a working title. No way could I even begin comprehending that!

So many words popped in my head and for those that know, yes there is a subtitle. When I finally came up with some choices, energy was included. After all, this is energy and Warrior’s was all over the place. I wrote it down in order to not forget once the real title naming days came. Again, if you know– the word energy isn’t even in my book title! 😬🀣

How is that possible? I still look back at that time and laugh. I even kept the original paper with all my word choices. Energy is right there staring at me as a reminder. It was left off the book but never left out of me. Vince McMahon has been quoted as saying about the Ultimate Warrior:” This man has energy to spare.” He also talked about his exuberance as I can’t leave out that word from this post. Such another powerful word.

When my kids learn about energy in school, it’s all those literal science definitions with kinetic, chemical, mechanical, and electrical. You can study that if you want but it’s tricky though. I’d like to talk more about the inner energies we all have. Ya know– physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Which is most dominant for you warriors? My post The Emotional Mental Connection has been blogged, in my book Spirit and Belief, and even though they are psychic types– energy types apply as well. It’s about gee~~ I dunno~~ me and Warrior (:

Energy is basically the “capacity to do work.” It’s about an object getting and staying in motion. Just like us. Just like Coming Full Circle of last week. You learn all kinds and use all kinds with anything in life. ANYTHING. It takes me energy to write this just like it takes you energy to read it. It’s really about how much though. We include energy with those other “to-do’s” like time, resources, patience, and many others. Your energy inside is what truly matters and not so much the book smarts of learning all the types. Warrior did and STILL does have so much energy. That doesn’t go away when you pass. If you didn’t have too much, perhaps you may not as a spirit. It’s part of your personality and is still with you, even without a body.

Some of you might be wondering how energy works without a body in spirit form. Well, it’s different for everybody but always remember how our feelings matter most. A spirit’s energy can be felt in so many ways and I have mentioned several “main events” with me. What works for some may not resonate with others. Energy can be seen, heard, felt, and even just known. It’s all connected to your beliefs.

How do you use energy the most warriors? It’s so hard giving an equal amount to all of our daily activities. Some days, we are stretched like a rubber band and yet keep going. The truth is you– yes YOU have more energy than actually realized. I know this now more than ever about myself but we all do. It’s how we spend it remember? I for one can’t even imagine the energy required to do so many tasks and in reality we do them. We do them because it’s in our blood. Those professional wrestlers have that exuberance of energy needed to perform but you can have it in many other ways pertinent to your life.

Your energy one day as a spirit will depend greatly on your life energy here. I don’t have all the answers of course but do have the knowledge of energy to know it counts. All of it every single day. Sometimes, we have more energy on one day than another. That’s o.k. and in fact how it truly is.

Warrior never stopped expanding his exuberance of energy but that was how he needed to be. Just use your energy in the way your life needs to be warriors. Also, don’t forget the word ENERGY and how important it is. Without being in my book title, it is forever present in my life and will always continue on even in spirit. πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’™

P.S. Here’s my entire book title:

“Spirit and Belief~~How the Ultimate Warrior Led Me to Trust Intuition.”

Coming Full Circle

Warriors~~ have you ever found yourself years later back where you started from? Or, did you return to a place you never thought you’d visit again and yet did? Most may know Warrior’s story of finally coming full circle back to the WWE before his passing but I too have had similar stories. Perhaps you can relate. I didn’t have 18 years pass between returning professionally~~ just 4 but still coming full circle.

Almost 30 years ago, I was a preschool aide and began at one of the schools owned by our director. After a year, she opened a fourth school and I was an aide there. The following year she made me a teacher but then within four years, they closed its doors for good. It was the saddest day of my young life as a teacher since we had to combine with another school. I had returned four years later to the same building where I began. The other twist of fate was the classroom I was given. That room was where I spent countless hours preparing work for the other teachers as an aide and now for the remaining school year, it was my classroom. Coming full circle in a place I never expected to be at again.

I also came full circle with my writing. Never did I imagine writing as a blogger or even publishing a book. It was when thinking of this post that my past with writing came full circle. I remembered writing to a cousin of mine for years where we exchanged all the family and personal details of our lives growing up. These are saved in a special attic box. I also had written many letters to one of my Grandmas. Oh, the stories we’d share back and forth over time. Such great memories as I recalled letter writing not connected to school. (AKA~~ “The Jump Start on Journaling” post.)

Have any of you ever had that feeling of coming full circle in your life? It can be with anything at all. Maybe some of you have even bought your childhood home after parents moved on. That’s full circle indeed. Maybe you were raised a certain way with religion or politics, went your own path for a bit, but now are back with those beliefs. It can even be a past relationship with someone. Perhaps you’ve disconnected but because of life’s circumstances, you are back in each other’s lives(: Have you moved away and now find yourself back in your old hometown? Anything can become your full circle.

Sometimes in life we become all too consumed with our lives and moving ahead that we forget our connectedness. Those synchronicities that bring us back are for a reason. It might be the start of something good for us or maybe it’s just to ponder what a small world it is after all. Just like the Disney song. 🎼🌏

There is that voice that will stop us from looking at our full circle like it was with Warrior. We say never, ever, never will I go back there or do that again. Why? Well, for various reasons we all have and yet the emotion behind it can be similar. We are hurt, angry, distant, and maybe even worse. Also, it could just be for the mere fact of being done with that part of our life and moving on. We do need to do that but this Universe of ours places us where we need to be whether one agrees at the time or not.

Spend some time really contemplating this on your own warriors. Where has your life led you to that full circle of coming back? A circle never ends so look at it like your life in motion. That’s who we are. I know that’s me and despite Warrior’s motion, he thought much about life. It is good going back for just a little while however that is for you. Even grown up children return to their childhood nest! Just don’t ruffle feathers there too long. Another ⭕️ that keeps going.

We come back to our circle because deep down, we never fully leave. Physically, yes. Emotionally, no. This is true whether you believe it or not. I know it is for me and Warrior. For years he was dormant in my life but my feelings would still surface from time to time. I always just wanted him to be happy with whatever was going on in his life. So glad to forever know he was and that returning to his WWE circle made the Ultimate Warrior legacy never end. A circle will do that.

~~ Reflect on your full circles warriors and know they bring you back always without end. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’™

Many Meaningful Masks

We do wear lots of masks throughout our lives warriors as some may have read on this blog before. This post isn’t quite as deep as getting to the real us but does involve several “mask” stories of my OWN that became very meaningful. A few are slightly amusing but then a few are well…., not so much. I do believe I’ve mentioned painting the Ultimate Warrior’s mask on my face was never something I’d do. Dana has had her face marked with her own brand of warrior woman paint but I only dabbled in small symbols on my cheeks. After all, he did that for a brief time so for me that was enough.

When my youngest sister was still quite little, I loved coloring and drawing with her. We had a few chalkboards to use for many creations. Guess what I showed her? Yep, the Ultimate Warrior mask. Why did that pop in my head? I wasn’t sure she’d fully understand my intensity back then so it was just called a “cat mask.” O.K., I know it doesn’t really look like a cat face but she bought it and became my muse of choice. She actually does still remember those times! Glad my silliness was so memorable and unforgettable to her. Just like Warrior was and still is to me.

Another funny memory was painting Easter eggs. Being a teenage girl meant most were done with that tradition but again with having a sibling ten years younger made me still participate. I remember painting an egg purple and then adding his mask in the middle with yellow. Those are Easter colors for real! So very proud of how it turned out. I realize this sounds obsessive as perhaps even true fans out there didn’t do this. We all have weird stuff as teens and I gotta say that was mild compared to other things kids my age were doing. 😬Am sure you have your own crazy times too! This was sweet to me and I’ve shared a lot personally so there warriors– you get another interesting tidbit from my past.

These last few are a little bittersweet. When I heard about Warrior’s HOF induction, the months just seemed to fly by as that Spring came fast. Some will know how warm it was that April here in Ohio which is discussed in my book Spirit and Belief. My daughter was still into chalk drawing like her aunt many years ago. I drew the Ultimate Warrior mask on our driveway in many different colors so happy for his upcoming weekend. They were great as I hadn’t even tried drawing that mask in years. My girl never questioned the validity as it’s just a symbol. Little did she know how much it meant to her Mama. *** PAUSE*** A few days later, Warrior passed. πŸ’”

I still could see those colorful masks in one spot of our driveway out my window. It made me so sad, shocked, and angry. With no rain coming, they were erased by me without a trace remaining. It was too much then even with no tears but now, I’d leave them for different reasons. Even though the chalk was erased from that pavement, I could never erase him from my life no matter how hard I tried almost six years ago.

This time also coincided with my daughter having a Dance Party at her school along with face painting. She had these beautiful butterflies on her cheeks and loved them. A few days after Warrior’s passing and I see my girl’s face painted. Of course this isn’t his mask like the other stories but my emotions still fought it.

My Dad’s big 70th birthday party was the next night and with sleep, her butterflies faded a little. She asked me to paint them back on so she could show off her face to everyone. I obliged but told her Mama would do the best I could and to not get mad. My hands were shaking as I picked up that first brush and chose her color. Why? Come on Kathy– this isn’t his mask, what’s wrong with you? Well, that was how much of my grief got displayed. I just told her I was nervous since that wasn’t something she rarely asked of me. Warrior’s mask- No. Face paint-yes. It still mattered a lot. Never could I even put on the mask from the book “A Life Lived Forever.” I had held it up to my face but the strap broke. I wasn’t meant to wear it…

Warrior created his many painted masks for the Ultimate Warrior character which I never ever wanted to replicate. It wasn’t for me but I guess other meaningful mask stories came to be. To even think I had mask stories surprised me until back from my memory bank they were there again. Just like Warrior.

If any of you have ever painted the U.W. mask on yourself or anyone else, bravo! Your masks are meaningful to you just like mine were to me. Warrior painted different masks and each became a story with ultimate meanings. No chalk could ever be erased from my memory. He was there with or without his mask and still will forever be. πŸ’–πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ™πŸ»

P.S. We recently finally saw the movie “Fighting with my Family” which depicts the true story of Paige in the WWE. I really needed a chalkboard to slide my nails down since it shows WMXXX and Monday Night RAW of April 7, 2014… 😳 The U.W. wrestling buddy doll is also in this movie so sorry for the spoiler alert!! My husband even liked it. Another chalkboard moment.

Morning warriors or Night owls β˜€οΈπŸ¦‰

Do you remember my city/country post of a few months ago warriors? Well, today’s story is kinda like that one only with times of day instead of places to live. Which do you prefer– the morning warrior or night owl? I’m actually neither since most of my energy is spent in the afternoon. If I had to choose, it would be the morning. I was never a night owl. Guess who was though? You know who I’m talking about– Warrior.

I have referenced this a little before with being a WWE performer and superstar. Sleep would be hard to come by what with all the adrenaline. I know I’d be the same way if I did what they did and do! Downtime is required in order for me to prepare for dreamland… If I don’t get comfy before bed with my routine, falling asleep becomes quite the challenge. Warrior confesses on The Ultimate Collection DVD to surviving on 3 hours of sleep and calling it “neat.” Um, NO– not for me! This post is one of the fews where we are not in agreement upon. Once your body gets used to a routine or practice, it does become hard to change even out of a profession. I’d barely make it for Saturday Night’s Main Event sometimes and I was younger then!

When I was a young child, napping just wasn’t for me. I was good and stayed quiet but not many times of actual sleeping. Kiddos need that rest but it wasn’t happening for me. Now, it’s a little easier with a busier lifestyle and some cold wintery weekends. I was told that I have more energy than ever realized. 😬 That does explain why my brain and body need to work together to achieve rest. Like I always say, we need the balance and that is true with activity and sleep too. 😴

My workout is the afternoon as my husband’s is in the morning. I have done some fitness in the evening but gotta tell ya– it doesn’t work for me. If it’s getting close to 8 p.m., I am way too wired and already know sleep will be difficult that night.

There are some who workout at midnight or so like Triple HHH and Stephanie McMahon. Often, that’s the time that works with hectic busy families. If I had to do that, I would but sleep would have to factor in as well. Sure, sometimes I have a few sleepless nights but it isn’t a constant. I do know that my workout and fitness are a priority so it would get done in some way. Maybe just yoga. Maybe just cardio but probably not all if my schedule was different. I’d rather start at 5:00 A.M. and crash earlier at night instead of trying to find the energy at midnight!

How does this work for you warriors? It doesn’t have to apply to fitness but anything else. I also will never be one of those late night shoppers either. Ya know, the Wal-Mart types. If you are, that’s fine but it isn’t me. Guess I’m not the all-nighter kind of gal. I wanted to watch T.V. and school wasn’t like that for me anyways.

Many activities I prefer doing in the morning versus night like errands or chores. We all do what works for us and some can’t switch their schedule around. I like relaxing more in the evening or doing family stuff minus homework. 😳Our schedules can be so opposite of others but we shouldn’t judge since everyone is different. I love the idea of starting the day with a workout since your energy will get peaked. At the end of a day, my tiredness creeps in and it’s more difficult. If you have some motivation, even better.

Being up all night can have advantages too since most could be sleeping or some even work night shifts. You’d have no distractions at home or very little but will have to be quiet. You can get your own space like Warrior had which worked well out in his barn gym. When we are alone, we can mentally prepare better for whatever tasks lay ahead of us. Knowing myself, I’d probably fall asleep at 7 p.m. being up all night…

So, morning warriors or night owls? Whichever is your thing, just make it work in your life. Do the work of your life as Warrior said. Make your time count because it truly does. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š

WORK+REST=BALANCE Always!!

P.S. Last month on Friday, Dec. 13th, we had an owl in our backyard tree! It was so cool seeing this “night owl”! ~~ It was also a full moon!! πŸŒ‘

Ultimate Family Nuances

Happy 2020 warriors! πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ A New Year and decade… I wish you all health, happiness, and humor as always! Hey, that’s WWE’s HHH( not on purpose!πŸ˜‰) This story has plenty of that humor so get your gear on and let’s start running.

As you can see with that photo, Helwig Whistle Stop is nearby my town. I know it’s missing an l warriors and across the street is Helwig Industrial Park. One of the founders of this neighboring city had that as his last name. I found very little as to why some areas were named after him but he must’ve been prominent back then. This street is one of the main roads that connects towns so I have seen this “tag team” for years now. The Whistle Stop is newer though but always a reminder of Jim Hellwig (Warrior’s birth name.) Also, I had to use the Whistle Stop Sign because of the train. Vince McMahon had referred to the Ultimate Warrior as “a runaway locomotive!”

There’s those literal SIGNS once again. Also, on that same road sits a chiropractor’s office on the corner of Daisy Street. Warrior was almost that profession and had a beloved dog named Daisy who is now with him in spirit. At least I believe that anyway. I still smile and maybe giggle every time I pass that corner. There are a few Daisy references in my book Spirit and Belief that will always warm my heart along with another train reference from a vacation.

Now, I’ll move on to more family stories. Two involve my husband and one is with my daughter ( yes, again!) I rarely mention my husband and then these little nuances got me thinking. πŸ€” A few Christmas Eves ago, we were in our church parking lot and saw my daughter’s 5th grade PSR teacher. This was a little over 3 years ago when many other sillies surfaced. My son also had this teacher and his name is Mr. HOGAN. That’s right… Well, my kids still don’t acknowledge teachers what with all the embarrassment. My husband says in a loud enough voice for me to hear: “HOGAN!” Thankfully, Mr. Hogan didn’t hear him. I’m not kidding here when I say he sounded like the Ultimate Warrior during WMVI after Hogan’s knee “went out.” Warrior yells: “Hogan!” for him to get back into the ring. I wondered if my husband had ever seen WMVI as that does remain a mystery…

The second nuance occurred several months ago as I was working on my website in another room. My husband was watching a YouTube video and I immediately heard Gorilla Monsoon’s voice announcing during a match with the Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase and some other opponent. I couldn’t hear it all but it was for sure an old WWF match! What the heck? He doesn’t watch that and it was playing at least a minute or more before I walked in. I didn’t want to freak him out by saying something absurd but just: “Hey, I know that voice, that’s Gorilla Monsoon!” He stopped it right away and said nothing. Hmmm…

The last little family nuance came when studying health with my daughter last year. They were learning different muscles of the body with diagrams. We all know the basics right– like gluteus maximus, (our glutes or rear!) biceps, triceps, and some others. Then, I was amused with a fun memory. Next came trapezius which is part of the neck and shoulder “area.” I thought of SummerSlam’89 between the Ultimate Warrior and Ravishing Rick Rude. Those commentators used the medical terms since we have to be serious when describing the body! I always loved when they’d say “area” after a word. Did you ever notice that back then? The kidney “area,” the frontal “area,” etc. Well, I started laughing when going over her muscle body parts vocabulary.

Guess which part she kept forgetting? Trapezius. That sounds about right, doesn’t it? That match between U.W. and R.R. resulted in Warrior getting the Intercontinental Title Belt back and started with a sign I’ve mentioned before in the audience that read: “Hi Kathy.”

Ultimate Family Nuances are always around giving me humor and memories. Some signs are new while some remain. I love them all and am humbled as my purpose is a warrior who always believes. πŸ’™πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ€Όβ€β™€οΈπŸ™πŸ»

Just Imagine warriors…

This post is a day early warriors as I have much going on tomorrow. Also, this blog will be the last one of 2019 as I am taking a few weeks off for the Holiday Season. Not to worry though. I’ll be back in 2020 (wow!) with a funny family one to start the New Year! Feel free to archive posts if you’re missing me too much!! πŸ˜‰

So, just imagine warriors. What could that mean? Well, for this topic it’s kinda like the question you got asked as a kid. “What do you want to be when you grow up?” That means your job. We all had those answers, didn’t we? Maybe you didn’t know or maybe you still don’t consider yourself a grown up? Whatever the case, let’s use that imagination I’m sure you all still have.

Warrior says in that video above how the Ultimate Warrior will keep running and that’s how we all need to be. Not literally but just to keep going, dreaming, imagining, and then achieving. Whatever that is for you. I’ll link the WWE video at the end but most fans know his story. He had many professional aspirations and being a pro- wrestler wasn’t even one of them. Life sends detours for sure and we can decide what road to take.

If for just one day, you could take a professional detour, what would that be like for you? Imagine yourself out of your current job or situation and into another. I’ll be an example here. Well, let’s see… I did always want to be a wife and mom (no paycheck!) but becoming a preschool teacher was my profession for many years. Once I decided on early childhood, that was it for me. Never ever ever did I imagine becoming a writer of two international blogs, publishing a book Spirit and Belief, having a website, making YouTube videos, and all this! UM- no way! Some things aren’t money related but still shows the detours. Dana is now on the creative writing team of WWE. Am sure she never imagined that detour in her life either. Culture may decide also but it’s all there for you.

Now, if I could change something– hmm… What would I imagine? I guess I would probably be a singer! I’m not really sure how that would get played out but I have imagined it. My kids still tease me about music and singing but it doesn’t bother me. Will I ever do that professionally? No. That’s o.k. though. Good thing I have always loved music as I get plenty of Warrior signs that way!

Now, it’s your turn. You can’t just put yourself on a tropical island here….(ah, how nice though…) 🌴Again, this is about money but not everything is. I mean another career. Maybe you love houses and dream of selling real estate? Maybe you love T.V. and imagine becoming an actor? Whatever it is, it’s yours to imagine. Be that kid again that we all seem to forget about.

I thought about changing this topic to include personal ideas but didn’t want anyone regretting relationships with significant others or possibly having kids! Some things we may regret but know they are life lessons getting you to where you are now. There are shared traits of course between us all. Don’t all of us want to be financially secure? To be happy? Healthy? Of course we do and we all should.

Nowadays, people will have multiple jobs over the course of their professional life. Quite possibly gone are the days of securing that elusive job with your college degree and sustaining it for 40+ years until retirement. Some may still do this but is becoming a rarity anymore with all of society’s changes. Who knows how it’ll be for my kids? Time will tell, they’ll have detours but we must never stop imagining.

I’m not saying “daydreaming” to the point of depression. No pity at all with the “wonder what my life would’ve been like?… ” scenario. Nope! Just fun here. Look at all Warrior did with his imagination without some ideas initially at all. You can be that way too. I have and our brains need that sometimes. Just remember to stay in the present moment since that’s what we have. To think about the past or future is fine but not for too long as I’ve said before.

As I sign off for a bit, enjoy your time imagining warriors. Even if just for a day. Be that kid with all the dreams however they are! πŸ§šπŸ’«πŸ˜΄

P.S. Keep running warriors and I will too! Send 2019 out with some FUN (:

My Psychic Visit πŸ’™πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’–

O.K. Settle down naysayers… Don’t let this title overwhelm you warriors. I am sure there are skeptics out there regarding psychics and you have every right to be. My visit came about as a result of knowing this friend for a few years and also after many months of inner work. I am not nor will I ever be someone to just sit with a psychic medium at a fair, mall, or other event on a whim. This was a personal private session at her house.

I decided to finally make an appointment with her but only after some conditions could be met in my mind. You should consider these as well if wanting to visit a psychic on your own. First, I believe trust is so important and doing this without that wouldn’t work for me. Second, you need to become detached to any information or possible outcomes. This is so hard but a challenge for me considering my main reason in seeing her. You fans will know. Yes, it did mostly involve Warrior. Remember though, we always have free will and spirits will not tell you what to do. It’s all about guidance or “nudges.”

Psychic mediums aren’t for predictions in the way some think but many believe that to be the reason in sitting with one. You need to use your own intuition and interpret messages in the way that works for you. Some ask about relationships, health, love, money, or a career but I wasn’t. At least not really. Some may even need to piece together a puzzle with clues possibly meant for another. You need to figure that out yourself.

Even though I had some past spirit visit dreams with others, never would I have pursued this without Warrior’s passing. Never. The reasons were more clear to me than ever before. Anyone can connect in spirit to passed loved ones or those you have a connection with. It’s all about your believing mind with right intentions. I never doubt messages from those in spirit. They only have your best interests at heart and never lie. Most fans will know how honest Warrior was and still is!

Messages from a spirit to a medium can be crystal clear information or just bits and pieces. You must be open-minded and relaxed. Before my appointment with her, I wasn’t feeling too well at all. It was nothing contagious and I really wasn’t that nervous. She validated my spiritual energy and symptoms as I was in such awe. I had sat with a few others before ( not on a whim) who read cards but never just my energy and possibly connecting with those in spirit. My paternal Grandmother and father -in-law both had messages for me but then it was Warrior’s turn.

I was so patient as she proceeded asking about the man in my book (Spirit and Belief.) My friend knows a little of my background but not much. Once I said yes, she wanted to know his name. I told her he had it legally changed to Warrior but she saw a letter “J” in her mind. I kept thinking Jim and then she related how he was saying “James.” There was someone else with him identified as “Joe” but I am not aware of this name. It could be his Dad or Grandpa? I’m not sure.., Just a guess…

Tears came for me then as he proceeded to work thru her. He related to being “a great big giant.” I laughed thinking of Andre the Giant but Warrior and I do have quite the height difference. I am only 5’2″. He also said “military school” but all I could think of was how active the WWE has always been with the military. She agreed that was probably the connector. Warrior always supported the military and our veterans.

He shared how proud he is of the book while I am continuing his legacy. I was told to keep writing my blogs too. She heard the word “feathers” and saw an image of a goose. Warrior’s main signs for me are sending feathers and giving me goosebumps– A LOT! I have other signs but those remain a huge influence.

She told me some more information about him and I but it is extremely personal. Let’s just say a lot more makes sense now and validation was deeply evident spiritually in my life. You may not believe or possibly think she was just telling me what I wanted to hear. I assure you she knew nothing if very little about my connection with Warrior. She has not read the book but does know about my blogs.

The very specific things she told me were incredibly unbelievable and I was completely overwhelmed in a different way. She revealed much more about my journey than I ever imagined. She even stated how I passed in a previous life. This is another belief but it totally resonated with me. I had to do some extra research as some terms she said were new to my understanding. My spiritual life is so heart centered and my purpose remains the same. To educate and inspire just like Warrior did with many fans over the years is what I need to keep doing. I am doing it in the way that works for me.

This isn’t to share my psychic visit in a bragging way at all. I am not a person to ask for help as some may know. You can connect to loved ones in spirit with or without a psychic. She barely even charged me as some will overcharge and prove to be not genuine. My friend has been doing this most of her adult life and even has had gifts since childhood. Her credentials speak volumes. Warrior knew of my plan to see her and a third party sometimes works well as they are gifted in many ways.

It was beautiful and amazing all at once. She also knew some specific details about my car accident over 19 years ago. I hadn’t said any real information but she described images. I have blogged about that accident on both. I even began a new healthy detox regimen which is working well. We could all use more organics!

I am linking my YouTube video on this visit as some prefer watching and listening over reading. It is all your choice warriors if visiting a psychic is right for you. Just think it through first. If you want to go on a whim, that’s up to you. Psychic mediums get a bad rap sometimes but if you do the work first, research a little, and release fears to trust, the guidance will be ultimately yours. Mine was so humbling since in James I will always believe…..

Should You See A Psychic?” (11:49)

What Do YOU Want warriors?

I guess this question is so broad but for some of you warriors, it can be easy. We all want the same basic things really. A good life, love, health, family, happiness, a career, a great place to live, and all that. Once you attain those goals, then what? Are you satisfied or do you crave more? Money can buy you some things but it won’t lead to true happiness. Warrior said that the richest people in the world are the most unhappy. Why is that when they probably have everything they want, right?

Wrong. That’s just stuff. We need to feel good about ourselves first and then all the wants will come afterwards. However you go for what you want, FEEL good about it first. Take those actions the way that works for you, not how someone else dictates. Be true to YOU! Think about how Warrior approached his character in the WWE. If you aren’t familiar, he had detours before he got there but wanted to succeed the way that worked for him despite naysayers.

There is no right or wrong way to achieve what you want. The way to go is entirely up to your vision of attaining your goals. Always will there be those who question the whys of your path but with deep conviction as warriors, we stay on it. Why do we not cave? Because we are warriors, that’s why.

My choices get questioned often when not fully embracing the “business side” of being a spiritual coach or entrepreneur. I found this woman online who promised me an extra $10,000 a month and hundreds of clients if I’d work with her and do it her way. Realistically, she could not guarantee those numbers at all and seemed shocked that I turned her down. After a few lengthy emails, I realized what a fraud she was and so relieved not to be duped. The money sounds great and could help my family but that isn’t how I want to influence people. Getting paid for a service or product– yes, but it isn’t the amount of money that appeals to me.

I will be a coach the best way to others in how to get my messages out there. Then, things happen. This is similar to Warrior not wanting a belt like I’ve said before. Many could not understand that either. Our way doesn’t have to be accepted or liked, just respected. Warrior wanted his character to find success in other ways just like he did later in life. He could’ve stayed in the business of wrestling and had tons more money or recognition but he didn’t.

We follow our passions and pursue them from a place of feeling first. Most of us get this wrong. We think that once we get everything we want, then we’ll truly be happy. No, warriors it’s the opposite. If you feel good with positivity, confidence, and trusting yourself, then those goals become a reality. You will achieve your dreams if you change your mindset to this new way of thinking.

We are trained to be better, to do more, get ahead, and compete in society. The truth is that we need to be grateful for what we do have and sit with it for a while. You can plan like I’ve mentioned before but sometimes becoming reflective is a must. Our hearts and minds need to slow down and be present in each moment. We are always in a rush, crossing off those “to-do” lists, and crushing goals is great. It is also o.k. to do nothing for a bit. I had personal and professional ideas that I did accomplish but again, then what?

I am learning to not always go, go, go and appreciate all the little things first. We have all done things in life that get overlooked so the question remains of what do YOU want warriors? I for one know what I want, I already have so then anything extra that comes is a bonus.

Whatever your answer is to that question warriors– really think about it. What you want is already inside you like Warrior himself always said. Go for it but honor yourself by feeling good first. The stuff doesn’t matter as much as the FEELING behind it does. The passions of the heart are worth more than any dollar amount always. πŸ’™πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

P.S. The photo of Warrior above was at the end of The Ultimate Collection DVD where he says how he “has lived up to the man named Warrior.”

P.P.S. For anyone stuck on this watch “Live Up to Your Means” by Warrior. *** Beware of some FOUL language! *** (4:55 in length)
