Welcome warriors 2023 ๐Ÿ’ซ

It is 2023! ๐Ÿฅณ My goodness warriors. Another year of NEW beginnings. Are you ready? I haven’t used the year in a title since 2019, how about that? I do hope all of you had a fantastic holiday season filled with love, magic, and good times. It was very restful for me with a few celebrations but nothing too exhausting. Very grateful for that. So, today’s post contains a few sillies and a few dreams coming your way. I thought of the goofy things, but then some dreams entered my sleep…

The silly or goofy stuff came from Facebook that totally resonated with me. Have you ever done those FB quizzes where you enter some info or tap on a picture to reveal an answer? I have done a few as some get too involved and become ridiculous to me. Sure, they are fun but I don’t need them flooding my feed all the time. This one I did a few years back and never forgot it. It was all about what profession you were in a past life. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Yeah, that’s up my alley… OK, let’s play here. You know it’ll connect to Warrior somehow and let me tell you THIS. I played it TWICE just to see and got the same answer! ๏ฟผ๏ฟผ

Do you think it was bodybuilder, chiropractor, pro wrestler, or anything else relative to Warrior? Gosh, did they even have those professions waaay back? Wrestling would have to be the sumo’s of Japan- ha ha, no thanks! Maybe it was writer, artist, or even speaker? Don’t overlook the obvious here. I got “warrior” twice. Yep, really. Sure, it’s just a random word Facebook gives you but it still amazed me. There were many others I read like farmer, midwife, and even a gypsy, (which I can imagine for myself in a way ๐Ÿ”ฎ…) but nobody else I saw had warrior. I stopped at two since I didn’t want to lose my title! Third time could’ve been a charm but I didn’t risk it. Well played Facebook, well played…

The next one was a play on words with your name that a friend of mine also played. I can’t remember it all but the part I did know was this: “Kathy’s thoughts are loud!” Oh my yes, is that true. My friend even agreed as FB got it right again. Some of those quizzes are cute like the few I do but then some become such nonsense. Play at your own risk. ๏ฟผ๏ฟผ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคญ

Enter DREAMLAND…๐Ÿฅฑ๐Ÿ˜ด

Here come the dreams warriors. This first one was right before Christmas Eve so aww, very fitting. I was in my childhood front yard just walking around. I’ve had a backyard dream, now the front. Lots of people were there but no idea who they were and why. Oh, those crazy details that don’t seem to matter. It was very crowded and yet I was alone just meandering. All of a sudden, as if rain had fallen, my yard became surrounded with Bluejay feathers EVERYWHERE. I could hardly see the grass. I never saw them coming down but the feeling was like rain in my mind without the wet. My hands became useless while trying to carry as many as I could hold. I didn’t have any container and just laughed at the vividness of patterns, sizes, and blue colors of my SIGN from Warrior. It was beautiful as I felt his presence before waking that morning. Merry Christmas from Warrior indeed. ๏ฟผโค๏ธ๐Ÿฅน๐Ÿชถ๐ŸŽ„

This next one I was unsure about but then after a bit, it seemed OK to share. I mean, really- it isn’t even as detailed as some but when Warrior’s kids are involved, I get a little protective. Readers may remember my Dress-up dream with Dana, Mattie, my daughter, and me. Now, it was Indy’s turn who is Warrior’s older daughter. I had heard a while back in an interview with Dana how Indy decided to abandon her ballet career which made me so sad. ๐Ÿ˜ž Covid took a hit on many professions and I guess she needed more of a college major. She is studying early childhood education which was what I did. I wish her so much success as little children are such a joy!๏ฟผ

In this dream, I was offering her teaching tips and sharing all my experiences. I found out about her change probably last year, so this dream was just last month. She seemed younger than 22, but we had the best time chatting just us girls together. All those Warrior girls have December birthdays like my husband with Sagittarius โ™๏ธ (if you follow astrology) so maybe that’s what manifested it for me. ๐Ÿค”It also could be our early childhood connection, who knows? It was so sweet just spending time discussing what ECE is and seeing her so passionate about it. She can teach preschool through 3rd grade as an option but no idea what Indy will pursue. I hope she continues and it becomes inspiring for her. Always such a different kind of feeling when Warrior girls visit me in dreams. It is truly heartwarming and joy filled every time. ๐Ÿฅฐ

That will wrap up this first post of 2023 warriors. Oh, and I’m still seeing the word SHINE in various places and hearing it in NEW songs too. How about that? Keep shining as this new year is just beginning. Do what fills your soul and let the rest go. Your heart needs to be happy so do what you can to make that happen- even if you like Facebook quizzes! ๐Ÿ˜œ I can’t believe I forgot yet another HUGE point here. That selfie of me. Yeah, look for more coming as I wanted to start the year off a little new and different this time. Warrior pics will be around soon for sure but we need variety, right? Make January fun, dream filled, and don’t forget to SHINE despite the winter weather some of us are having, or will have… ๐Ÿคโ˜ฎ๏ธโ„๏ธโ˜ƒ๏ธ

~~~ Find me over on an F.B Ultimate Warrior group, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram. *** Check out my book : “Spirit and Belief” which is a short diary of sorts on how Warrior’s spiritual energy led me to trust my own intuition more… It’s filled with humor, psychic gifts explained in a relatable way, family stories, my connection to him, and SO much more! It’s available on Amazon and other book ๐Ÿ“—outlets (:

My Psychic Visit ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’–

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…..

The Luminous Warrior Journey

Before I begin today’s post, just wanted to share a bit of news. There is a recent press release of my book Spirit and Belief that is thru webwire. You can google me and the book title and scroll to find it. The actual link is on my twitter page but couldn’t get the exact site to post, ugh.,, Anyway– if interested it is titled:“Trusting Your Gut Can Do You Good” and was sent out to various news media along with all the ways my book is available. So super cool! Now let’s get into today’s topic..,

I know another Card Deck has been featured before but stay with me as it connects to Warrior (of course!) These cards are from another Oracle Card Deck I have purchased but there’s always a back story with me so gear up!!

Years ago when watching The Ultimate Warrior character thru my T.V., I always did think he was Native American or at least a little. Sure, the matches and promos were crazy sometimes but I would still wonder based on certain words and actions he took. No, he never wore anything Native besides face paint but talking about the gods, Belief, Warriors, and all that kept sticking with me. One would assume being a warrior he’d have a sword or shield but no… Armor would be hard to take off before a match as well, lol!! ๐Ÿ—ก

Tatanka is a real Native American who as a pro wrestler incorporated much traditional gear into his character so Warrior didn’t use any of that but the thought remained. Who knows exactly? Warrior’s from Indiana, I’m from Ohio and most Native tribes came down from the Great Lakes settling in the surrounding areas now states that border the lakes. Many people forget this and assume they were all originally from the west. Nope, not true. The Eastern settlers forced the Natives out west to inhabit land that had yet to be developed.

The Warrior Family embraced both cultures of New Mexico and Arizona with Native plus Hispanic traditions. I have seen several photos and videos of statues, feathers, and other artifacts adorning Casa de Warrior over the years. People do base their beliefs on areas they dwell and Warrior felt that connection years before his beliefs became his family’s values.

I recently had two people at my Holistic Fair mention the “soul connection” between Warrior and myself. Neither one had glanced at my book or even knew that much about me at all. They sensed it and it makes me feel Ultimate when others acknowledge his impact. I have also had others mention much to me about nature and they just know from looking in my direction how it “fits” for my life.

That brings us back to these cards. I really wanted another one besides Angels and bought two more. This one is called The Mystical Shaman Oracle Card Deck and features many cards like these shown but much with nature, animals, and deeper meanings. There is an accompanying guide book with descriptions. A Shaman is similar in a spiritual way to a medium but they work more closely with ancient rituals, customs, and nature. They believe in using natural remedies to cure illness and practice in many places around the world. It might sound extreme to some but I became very interested after watching a video from the authors of this deck.

Nature has always been an active part of my present life so perhaps Shamanism was in a past life of mine? Some have mentioned that to me as well so I always am open-minded. Many may not believe in past lives or new views but I have become more receptive as my development increases. My feather collection always gets people’s attention at an event and even one man was stunned when seeing my larger ones. He incorporates some aspects of Shamanism with his practice so he brought this more into my awareness.

I will share a few quotes from both of these cards that really wowed me and DID connect to Warrior. They represent my experiences also. Part of “The Journey” card reads:

“The Journey is an invitation to step outside the boundaries of your life as you know it… Fearlessly draw your own navigational charts as you discover the route… Remember that the point of the journey is not the destination; it’s who you will become as you are transformed along the way.”

“The Luminous Warrior” describes that:

“The Luminous Warrior has no enemies in this world or the next… He focuses on his light rather than what hides in the dark. His power comes not from the sword but from speaking his truth at all costs… Find the truth hiding in your heart that will affirm your instinct for peace rather than for war.”

~~~ Remember, this relates to Warrior now I believe in spirit but how perfect as a life lesson. I KNOW this is extremely deep for some of you but really wanted to explore another topic of interest relating to Warrior. Native? I don’t really know but with his beliefs and lifestyle, it always got me thinking. Long before Warrior in my life, Native American culture fascinated me as I remember getting books in the school library and reading all I could. Pioneer stories also impacted me so perhaps these cultures of people influenced my warrior state of mind as a survivor fighting for life and beliefs. I also loved the show Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman but that’s a whole other story!

~~~ Anyways, this is my last post of the year as I have much still to do during this Holiday Season! Please enjoy this time with your loved ones and know that this warrior woman honors all warriors wishing to know more. Perhaps that can be my New Year’s wish for you. KNOW MORE! Find out who you really are and what interests you always! Keep going on your journey and let your own Luminous Warrior guide you towards destiny. โœจโšก๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽ

The Spiritual Warrior

Before I thought of this next post, my mind wondered what other topics to discuss. The book “A Life Lived Forever” always inspires me but then I looked at other things in my Warrior collection. The comic book caught my eye as I hadn’t paged thru it in quite some time. 22 years ago I read all of it after purchasing from my local drugstore. Sometimes I’d glance at it but then once again 4 years ago. It was too soon to pick that up as the hospital scene hit a little too close to my heart. ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’”

Warrior mentions “Destrucity” within the introduction and then these pages pictured near the end. Back then, the entire concept amazed me despite the mortality reference. I would just read the words and think– WOW… but now in my spiritual development, it has an entirely new meaning.

I did some research (highlighted words) as this doesn’t even include the story itself. The words “higher self” or “selves” are mentioned 17 times, “evolution” or “past lives” is mentioned 15 times, and “intuition” 4. These words meant very little if nothing to me then but I always believed anyway.

For some of you disconnected with Warrior’s spiritual nature, just read these pages. I only have the first book but that’s enough for me. When I first starting getting “signs,” I read many books and they ALL referenced these words of Warrior’s. I had no idea at the time how his mindset really was. Not a clue. At least not a strong one anyway. Those were words never in my life before and intuition I learned as “conscience.” He even references God but this can also be synonymous with Creator, Source, Divine Light, consciousness, or any other term you connect to.

Many words he used throughout his career like destiny, intensity, energy, strength, and of course spirit and belief ( wink-wink– my book!) It wasn’t until later on that he mentioned more spiritual words and boy did I pay attention! For him to describe evolution and past lives relates so well with what I am learning now. My belief system never aligned with how I view spirituality today.

The “spirit of warrior” is in all of us if we do indeed listen to that higher self and follow our intuition. That is my entire message of what I am trying to educate others on. I never picked up one book or looked at one blog during my development thinking of Warrior in this way– never. I only researched to find out what all these “signs” meant for me and why Warrior seemed so strong a presence. It wasn’t because I knew or remembered him describing higher selves, evolution, or intuition at all. There are many more magazine articles or YouTube videos of Warrior’s where these are mentioned several times.

He explains on the Ultimate Collection DVD how: ” whatever the character was in the ring was just an amped up version of who that character was outside the ring.” At first I thought– no way! He isn’t the Ultimate Warrior all the time until I realized he meant something deeper. He means deep down to the core and for him, it was the spiritual Warrior. Why do you think he was so successful with his promos or words? Yes, some thought he was strange but he already had that spiritual side within.

He used that to evolve into the character he not only wanted to be but needed to be. He honored his true beliefs and not many people seemed receptive at the time. To think I just thought he was cool and different… ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ’– Little did I know and maybe you warriors didn’t either just how much spirituality was part of his very essence. I of course, had no idea of my own really until an experience ten years ago. I never made it a big deal but again- always believed and accepted. It had nothing to do with Warrior at all.

Reading and looking at the comic book now leaves me feeling too many things to describe. I am so incredibly honored and amazed at how he acknowledges MY spiritual warrior all the time. This is my destiny and I find things out that always blow my mind. When others say: “He was just a character on T.V.,” I just laugh now instead of becoming defensive. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I know better and am so grateful to be included within his tribe of following my OWN spirit of warrior.

Listen to your higher self.

Evolve into your OWN spiritual warrior.

Follow your intuition everyday . ( I sign this in my books!)

~~~ My meditation everyday has always included: “Help me connect with my higher self which in turn leads me to the Divine.”

I would love to hear your stories of finding the “spirit of warrior” inside you!! ~~~ #alwaysbelieve
