My β€œPouchie” 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. ❀️ 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!!! πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚

The Wedding Near Smoothie King

Would I fool you warrior fans if you didn’t notice that photo of this other Smoothie King place? Well, I wasn’t in New Orleans but did recently attend a family wedding out of town and noticed that shop. We don’t have those Smoothie Kings by us so boy, did I smile at that sign! It sits directly across the church where the wedding took place so my heart filled with love for all the Warrior family. ❀️❀️❀️❀️

Sometimes, I get social anxiety at these events where so many are present and catching up is great but can be awkward too. My meditation was a little longer that morning as I brought along my pink rose quartz for extra love. The card I drew that day was the Heart Chakra and I must say– it was perfect! I also read the additional meanings and once again, a moment floored me. This was a new card I hadn’t gotten before and a line in the extra part reads: ” A departed loved one who passed from a heart condition is saying hello, I love you. Have a heart-to-heart discussion.” Oh yes, everyday… a few tears here but then I just let it all go and decided to be that warrior the man himself knows me to be.

Later on, we all went to a restaurant between the wedding and reception start time. I had a wonderful conversation with my husband’s cousin’s wife and had no idea of her spiritual gifts as well. She had bought my book and asked me how things were going. Time just flew by as she related her psychic experiences and by sharing my story, it enabled her to open up with others and now to me. I never would’ve guessed this about her and she seemed open to meditation, Hay House radio, and other topics. I was so overjoyed with hearing her stories while feeling validated that mine were educating.

My husband’s sister-in-law recently visited New Mexico with her husband and was in Las Cruces. She actually remembered how Dana lives in Santa Fe and discussed her podcast! Another moment of joy and glee I wasn’t expecting to discuss at all!!! Luckily, this all happened after the wedding or I would’ve been distracted for sure!

What a great week that really turned out to be starting with meeting the woman who won a free copy of my book Spirit and Belief at my recent Holistic Fair. She gave me names of new contacts and we might attend some events together. Her name is Kathy just like mine and she even lives on my street! It has become so synchronistic lately, my heart chakra really is open. ~~ You can look up chakras if you aren’t familiar with them but I have a blog post on this subject at spiritandbelief. It’s about making sense of those seven chakras.

Even though I don’t have a Smoothie King Center story, the Smoothie King shop is my story for that day. I didn’t have that stage like the Warrior family but I have my stage where connections are made all the time. I should’ve gotten a smoothie but I’ll take the people any day..,

Dana’s Total WARRIORS!

Every once in a while we need to laugh at ourselves and yes, I do! This was one of those times along with excitement and gratitude. Dana Warrior’s new podcast- Total WARRIORS debuted last Friday May 4th at 8:00 p.m. EST and I was a caller.

She hosted Dana LIVE! a few years ago which was a one night event and that experience is in my book, Spirit and Belief. She also has been a guest on Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia and even co-hosted once. I recently just listened to her on Cigars, Scars, and Superstars with Terri Runnels (aka Marlena– WWE fans) so it didn’t surprise me that having a podcast appealed to her. Total WARRIORS is fan-based and I just took another chance with being on hold 20 minutes so it actually worked!

I was in the bathroom when my number became announced but good thing nothing embarrassing happened! 🀣😳 Never have I called into a podcast much less even a radio show– ever. Completely stunned, I was so emotional even getting to my question. She and Steve both were in hysterics as I called to my husband downstairs!! Dana called me “adorable and delightful” and she loved my voice! Can you say FLOORED!

I finally asked about writing (of course) and she is so intelligent which some people might not associate with her. The whole episode is 1:30 but my call is at the 54:52 mark. If listening to the entire podcast isn’t your thing, that’s ok. You can skip ahead in 15 min. intervals which is great! It was so humbling and an incredible experience to speak with her, one I will never forget. β€οΈπŸ’• I am excited for future episodes and I’ll post all the links below if you’re interested in hearing Dana’s stories, questions from fans, and juicy Warrior tidbits!

Whatever you are doing that has become a passion in your life, keep at it! Some things we can imagine in our minds working out or coming true but some still floor us…

I had planned another break from these writings as nothing popped up until Total WARRIORS. Even if something seems extremely unlikely or an “ultimate challenge,” go for it anyway! It might not work out exactly as you planned but will come together somehow and maybe even in a better way. I would love getting my book to her but just hearing her compliments and sweet messages gives me encouragement. Meeting her would be the absolute BEST but for now, a phone call will have to do and I am so honored.

As a writer, she personifies honesty and integrity and would never mince words. I am so glad she has found her place in the WWE Universe as an ambassador while still preserving Warrior’s legacy. Sure, she makes fun of him but we all need humor in our lives. 😜

If you feel so compelled, call in next time. The first podcast she did in 2016, I hung up after 5 minutes so don’t be like I was! ( You can find that one archived also thru podcasts or the Ultimate Warrior website)

The difference this time was that I wasn’t overly concerned with my phone and counting the minutes. Just let it be… I’m not saying take a shower or anything and no– I wasn’t doing that but just occupy your time momentarily with a little task. I have emailed and tweeted but never a phone call so those “firsts” for you could be right around the corner. Warrior was famous for firsts and we as his legion of faithful warriors must do the same. Remember: “Fear is an aberration…”

Slay the world warriors and continue giving love to our 1st lady Dana!
