Exuberance of Energy 💪🏻

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. 💖🙏🏻💙

P.S. Here’s my entire book title:

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

~~ I wanted the word energy after Warrior. ( Warrior’s Energy…)

The Cactus Plant Paradox

image_578415914434925          With Spring in full bloom, I’d like to share a story involving some plants of mine. They do connect with Warrior and me, of course! A few years ago, I had some beautiful pink geraniums. They were blogged about on 4/4/17 and became part of my book Spirit and Belief . Those geraniums were an integral part of my spiritual journey as they made me notice signs in nature more. They also connected with many aspects of Warrior while reading about plant vibes in Rebecca Rosen’s book Spirited. Plants will become more vibrant with spirit energy attached to them as evidenced with my geraniums.

     The reason I’m mentioning them is because I have a new cactus plant. No, it isn’t like the desert ones but a Christmas variety. I got very close to my geraniums because of their universal spirit energy and when one died out, the stronger one remained. She held on for TWO AND A HALF YEARS even though they are annual flowers. Two leaves were still holding on thru Thanksgiving and I knew she was planning on joining her sister soon.

     As Christmas neared, I attended a Holiday Party put on by my spiritual group Harmonic Journeys. It was a potluck and gift exchange which became quite the evening for me. We passed around wrapped gifts while “Twas the Night Before Christmas” was read. The narrator inserted the words “right” and “left” which meant passing those gifts. At the end of the story, you received the gift in your lap.

     The man next to me kept joking as a very heavy bag was always in my hands. I didn’t end up with that one but another cloth bag which seemed much lighter. I opened it to find a plant inside! A few feelings filled my head: “Who would bring a living thing to a game that’s kinda physical?” My next statement was: ” Oh no, not another plant to care for!” The last one was simply: “What will my cat do?” Geraniums and aloe can be dangerous to cats and I had both.

     People seemed to congregate near me in amazement as I was so confused by their fascination. They informed me it was a Christmas cactus that blooms a few times a year while not being toxic to cats. This cactus had the SAME color buds as my geraniums– hot pink! My negativity slowly changed into something else. Maybe this one plant was telling me it was o.k. to let the other one go.

     I gotta say though– I am not a replacement kind of gal, are you? Most avid readers will know. Some things we need to replace if they break, get lost, or wear out. What I mean is with things of a different state. You know, plants or even pets. We never even got another dog until years later after our first one passed. The same was true of our cat. Many reasons as to why and it is different for all. Some people replace right away because of a want, not a need.

     My pink “splash” geranium was ready to go and I knew it was time. I wasn’t holding on to her for nostalgia but just wanted to see if she’d survive another winter. I can’t physically throw out plants or flowers anymore. Guess I’m more mindful now… My daughter teased me for taking the flower girl out to our fire pit. I dug her out of the potted soil and took what was left back outside, roots and all. I placed her on top with some branches needing to be burned while reflecting. Some tears came as I thanked her for all she’d given me on this journey. This was very much the ritual for her and me. I needed to honor her, Warrior, her sister, and the Universe. Her beautiful pink blooms, the word SPLASH on one of the tags, the price being $6, everything mattered. All these things energetically tied to Warrior.

     She has gone back to nature as she came to me and now a new friend is placed in my care. I do hope C.C. as I call him blooms again with that pink color synchronistically brought to me. Caring for and nurturing anything truly does make a difference if your intentions remain genuine. Embrace what is before you since it will always lead to more adventures.

     My pink geraniums got me thinking deeper just like Warrior. My Christmas cactus got me believing how letting go is necessary in order to grow again. Memories remain as does love. It just changes form. People or plants— we all are connected to the Universe. Thank you Universe for bringing me these signs as I will ALWAYS BELIEVE!!!

 

     ~~~ P.S. I recently attended a yoga retreat and this woman had her dog in the car napping. She checked on her periodically and the dog was fine. I found out the pup’s name was “Madigan!” Not spelled like Mattigan Warrior but STILL!!! Madigan means “little dog!” We were MEANT to meet…. Dingo is Australian for “wild dog” , you know the Dingo Warrior!
