Q and A Warrior Time…

I decided with this post to answer some questions asked of me regarding the spiritual connection between Warrior and myself. Some have been asked at events, social media, or on my blogs. There were others but I will list the biggies so if you have another question, fire away! I do hope this will inspire any of you to believe in your own spiritual power and connectedness to the Universe everyday. Let’s begin…

How do you feel his presence and are there certain times of the day he connects?

This is such a great one as it applies to all of us when connecting with a passed spirit. I have a YouTube video on this as well called: “Times Spirits Visit” so you can check that out! With Warrior, I usually feel his presence when watching The Ultimate Collection DVD as goosebumps fill my entire body. They are literally HUGE! Crazy, right? A lot are Warrior and Randy moments or matches involving guys he truly respected. Also, when working out which could be a given but I remain humble. Music is amazing and that works with my basement light going out during certain songs! Be consistent, spirits do respond.😏

Were you ever afraid or doubted anything?

No, because I recognized the source and believed in the signs. I did question myself as the recipient for a long time thinking others were more worthy. I never thought how much I was in alignment with him and even though I know better now, I didn’t back then. The signs made sense from Warrior and I couldn’t refuse them. Some people are scared or have had other surreal experiences not like mine so I can understand their feelings. This process can be challenging but I always try to seek answers. Maybe he knows I’m up for an “ultimate challenge” but maybe he isn’t sure what I’ll do!

Is there one big event that led to Warrior connecting with you?

YES! I have said this time and time again but meditation was the key for me. I had small signs after he passed but the most intense moments came a month after beginning meditation. I’ve blogged about it and made a video so it’s worth repeating! My spirit visit dreams started that whole year of 2016 for me. (This leads into the next question….)

Have you had any dreams with him and what’s the difference between a visit dream and a regular one?

Oh my.. I believe he’s been in 7 dreams of mine so far ( great number!) but a few others mentioning him as well. A spirit visit dream is one in which you will never forget filled with symbolism just right for you. I have made a few videos on this and my first one has over 800 views which is super exciting! They have direct contact with you in some way, are very vivid, there is a personal message, and they aren’t just in the background. Most are right before you wake up so you will remember. Some I’ve blogged or are in my book Spirit and Belief. If you have some traits with others, see how yours match up with my thoughts. They are real and can happen to anyone from anyone in spirit. The message is the gift.

Have you been contacted by anyone else in spirit or other celebrities?

I have had many spirit Visit Dreams over the years from relatives but one from a woman I never met. I believe that opened the door for me to Warrior as well many years prior. No other celebrities as there has to be a purpose and I’m not invoking!

What made you start writing a blog?

All these books kept saying write it down, write it down! I started with the dreams of others I had and then began with the Warrior stories. I truly believed ( with some hesitation of course) they could help educate others on so many myths regarding this spiritual development. Everyone has abilities if you want to tap into them. It stayed in my head until I finally did some research and went for it! So glad I did as that led to the book, website, and blog number two. I didn’t even initially want Warrior’s name linked to my book as I thought I could do everything on my own. I realized later how disrespectful that would’ve been. It’s not a “celebrity tell-all” book but people will believe what they want. I continued the blog even though I thought it was over last year (haha!) since more stories just kept coming. So am hoping others are getting inspired to share their stories too! I just kept listening to my intuition which has been my message since day one.

The last remaining questions I believe have been answered numerous times but will sum up for anyone new. Intuition is your instinct or “gut” feeling– LISTEN to it and follow. Go with it. If you don’t you might get some physical symptoms or uneasy feelings. Instincts aren’t questioned and are easy to decide. My nervous stomach is gone now that I respond to my intuitive self. Warrior used the word intuition A LOT and more than I ever knew.

We can all tap into our intuition and psychic abilities. It can be fun and doesn’t have to be serious all the time! If you have a good intention with purpose, the Universe knows. You need to let go of outcomes and expectations of how you “think” it’s going to go. I never invoked Warrior directly but indirectly was doing aligned actions my brain wasn’t aware of at the time.

With patience, persistence, time, and consistency, Spirits will guide you. Signs will appear. Start small and take your time. Do what works for you. Read books, go out in nature, pray, meditate, do stuff you enjoy, the list is endless! Just stay true to your own values and it will work with time. Don’t let your ego get in the way with negative self-talk but trust and believe. The heart decides. It is the real you. ❀️

There are many common signs from loved ones in spirit and yours are chosen just for you. They will connect if they really want your attention. Just stay open and look for things out of the ordinary. Yours can be subtle, big, familiar, or maybe not at first. Keep track or write things down. It works! Don’t compare yourself to others since your journey is only for you to take.

Yes, it can be different with a celebrity since we might not think we are worthy of their time but we ARE and signs are the same. Once you have that connection, it becomes ULTIMATE! Have fun with your new friend in spirit. I truly believe in educating others and I know Warrior is my tag team partner!!πŸ’ͺ🏻

~~~ These were all great questions and I thank everyone who asked about Warrior, my journey, intuition, and anything spiritual. I’ll be back next time Warrior fans but if you’d like to reach me, please do!

What Spirits Learn From Us

I’ve had this topic in my head for a while now and it is finally time to write about it. Throughout these writings, I always mention what I learn, am learning, or perhaps becoming educated upon by either Warrior or the Spirit World. Now, I need to explain the other side.

I reference author and medium Sherrie Dillard’s book: “Discover Your Psychic Type” in my own “Spirit and Belief.” It’s in a chapter I called: The Emotional Mental Connection. First though, let’s get to this topic of what they learn or can be learning from us. I never ever thought of it that way at all. I mean– aren’t they supposed to be teaching us and not the other way around? Let me share some examples.

Imagine you have recently lost a close loved one. You have many questions and maybe you read (like I did) that they are learning too. How? Maybe you are continuing on a path they never got to take. Maybe you exhibit qualities they never possessed. Maybe you maybe an agreement before they passed to change in a way they couldn’t. Maybe none of this happened and you’re still confused! You have to think of your own circumstance and why a passed loved one could be learning from you.

This was extremely challenging for me to even begin comprehending regarding Warrior. Sherrie explained the psychic types and how the emotional (me) works well with the mental (him.) To clarify– no– it doesn’t mean emotional like a crying baby and no– it doesn’t mean mental like a disturbed person!

I did email her about being a reference and she described how these relationships can be in spirit as well as on Earth. I mention this because her books list workshops she had with people. I had to walk away when reading her tie in all these traits and how they work together. We all need the balance of the mind, body, and spirit everyday.

To summarize us: the emotional intuitive needs the logic of the mental since we lead with our heart. Sometimes, that head isn’t in the picture and we have to remember to use it! Yes, I have much common sense but my heart takes over. The mental intuitive is the opposite and when she listed characteristics of both– I had my answer. The mental uses logic to always seek higher learning but dismisses the heart sometimes. It is there, just hidden behind the intellect. BTW— I did not find this book because the author’s name was Sherrie but kinda funny! πŸ˜‰

So, what would Warrior learn from me? It’s not like he didn’t have heart but we have much more in common I believe than being the opposite. It did make sense and opened the door just a little. Did he want me to start writing a blog, book, and share our stories? Maybe he was private at times but inspiring and educating others about different beliefs? — YOU BET! Reading? Yes. Writing? Yes. Inspiring? Yes. I wouldn’t have gotten all these “signs” if I wasn’t meant to share. That’s just not him.

Now comes the tough part my humility makes even harder to share but I must. First, I will NEVER EVER disrespect or dishonor anything he did or was doing. Ever. These are just my views relevant to my journey with him in spirit. I am not judging him as none of us should do that to each other either.

Ok- here’s my “list” as I

b-r-e-a-t-h-e it out slowly… I did hear he meditated years ago so perhaps he didn’t have much time to practice that anymore. Maybe he did, I don’t know but meditation brought him to my dreams. I was not and will never be as physically disciplined as he but yoga also is a biggie with me as it slows you down a little. Could he have benefitted from slowing down a little? Yes, of course but hey- I do my cardio too. I like to sleep… Never a whole day away but it is beneficial to our health. Would I have had sleeping difficulties with the adrenaline rush of pro wrestling? Of course! Some people’s metabolism is wired differently and we can’t picture ourselves on their life path.

I am not an over the top person as he and am quite simple with my life. Do you have to be professionally? That all depends on how you define success. To be a celebrity is a different world so how would I handle success? We never all do things the same but relaxing does make a difference. He did with his girls but Dana has said not too much downtime did he ever take.

Do I believe Warrior pushed himself so hard to prove to himself he could? Yes, I will be honest but again I am not here to judge. He never lived with regrets so it is not for me to say if he has any in spirit. Sure, he had a family history and got taken from his family too soon but he did know the risks. That brings us to what he is learning from me yet again.

My body isn’t perfect and I work it plenty. Perhaps he sees that in me and that it’s ok to not overwork. I can’t say and I won’t fully say. I like to eat and sometimes love my junk food. He might not still approve but perhaps knows now that being extreme with everything is exhausting. I have struggles with my body but am not obsessive. He knew his disciplines from a young age and they never go away. Mine never have either.

We all have our lessons to learn here on Earth and as a spirit. There is my list and believe me when I say it was HARD writing. Very easy to say about people we don’t like or respect but not of those we do. He can be learning much more as a spirit but this was about me so humbleness aside, I had to put it out here. I do know that we work well together as emotional and mental intuitives with our beliefs connecting us now and forever. Humor is great with us too!

At first I thought he’d be mad at me for this list but I believe he isn’t. We can all play the “would’ve, could’ve, should’ve” game but it is not our place to do so. He knows my heart and how I educate myself on his spirit world all the time. If you find yourself in a spirit relationship with someone, turn the table over to examine what they are learning from you. Some answers you might not know for now but some get revealed in the most unexpected ways. ***Mediums say spirits bring messages of regret but as always– it’s the why and how of the message. We all learn and will continue on even as an ULTIMATE spirit!

P.S. When I felt angry after Warrior passed, there was much I questioned and asked him directly. When working out I heard “Human” by The Human League. It’s about being human and a man who has made mistakes asking for forgiveness.. ( for those not familiar) πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ»πŸ€—

The Mythology Of Heroes

Happy New Year~~ 2019 Warrior fans! I have missed this so with the Holidays over, gear up for more Warrior stories! This one gradually came to me as a little idea until it got launched like a ROCKET into my thoughts! πŸš€ Yet another concept of Warrior’s that I too connected with. Mythology and all its Gods, Goddesses, and Demi-Gods always fascinated me in school. I first read their stories in 7th grade. Funny how that grade wasn’t one of my favorites and now I remember some good stuff!

When first putting this blog post together, I knew there was a report in high school saved up in the attic as we studied mythology again in 9th grade. I found it and laughed looking thru my drawings and hand written descriptions! 😜 Well, that was GOING to be my photo until something Ultimate happened… I put it aside and then when looking for it—- it was totally GONE! Seriously warriors, it completely disappeared. I ransacked my entire room and knew right where I put it. It seems like I never even got it down.,,

Maybe those Gods are tricking me? ⚑️I got tired of looking so finally remembered this photo of these two heroes back then. Let’s just say the book was not a big loss but I was proud of it or it wouldn’t have been kept. I really can’t say when my fascination began with these myths but one story led into the next as my imagination soared. From Zeus to Hera, Aphrodite, Athena, Hades, Ares, Poseidon, and many others whose influence we still use today.

Do you know the expression “Pandora’s Box?” How about your Achilles heel? There were the Greeks, Romans, and Norse myths liked how Thursday is named for Thor. I bet most of you know that superhero made popular in the movies. Plus, many of our planets are named after those legendary gods.

That brings us to two Gods that resemble Warrior. At least to me anyway. Anyone know? Come on…. If you know some stories am sure you can guess. The winners are: Hercules and Atlas. Perhaps for some obvious reasons but ONE trait they all have in common is endurance. Really, it’s true.

Tony Schiavone (former commentator for the WWE) even said the Ultimate Warrior had “super human strength” and that is one of the top qualities of Hercules. Plus, he wrestled everybody! I loved the show Hercules The Legendary Journeys in the late 90’s but let’s continue…

Hercules was the only god to become a hero after his death although he was a demi-god. He was known for his bravery and speed but had excessive self-confidence. Often times he struggled with evil impulses while trying to remain true to his heart. You can look up all his great stories but some of these ideas pertained to Warrior in many ways. No, not all the time but definite similarities. I know Herc’s stories well after following the show plus some movies made.

Let’s move to Atlas. His “punishment” was to carry the pillars of heaven and earth as a test of strength– Hercules had many of these too as they teamed up to fight Zeus. It’s the expression of “having the weight of the world on your shoulders.” This of course was in line with Warrior and how he approached body-building and then using his gorilla press slams as a wrestler. Warrior depicted this trait of Atlas throughout his entire adult life and career. To me, he didn’t ever need to feel the weight of the world upon him as I hope he knows that now in spirit.

The weight of the world came upon Tony Atlas as well since like Warrior, he too was a body builder. Tony went on to win Mr. USA and became well known in the WWE with his famous gorilla slams similar to Warrior. The name Atlas fit him perfectly. You can also contact an atlas to find out about the world which depicts maps of Earth. According to mythology, Atlas was a Titan and that thought stated in my mind…

Titan Sports was that thought as I read up on the name behind WWE. I wanted to know why that name was chosen but couldn’t locate that specifically. Vince McMahon founded Titan Sports back in 1980 after other wrestling business connections ended. He took the old WWF name further than his father and grandfather before him. The name connects with this post! Mythological? I always believe.

Well, there’s my connection to mythology, heroes, and Warrior. I never forgot those stories and can still recall my favorites today. Very similar to Warrior and all his heroic battles in the ring including his earliest competitor the character of Hercules. Why do ideas stay in our heads? Obviously the Universe has other plans as to why we remember what we do.

Here’s my LAST connection and it does involve something quite common for me now spiritually. Remember that I always believe… Once my obsession waned some on looking for my school report, I did put the thought aside or so I thought.

When writing out ideas for this post, it was time for my workout so had to leave it unfinished for a bit. I went down to the basement and began on the elliptical machine. Great songs on Pandora the whole way but then out of nowhere I asked Warrior: “Did you take my report“? Why was that thought back on my brain again? Why would I ask that of Warrior? My brain obviously knew what I couldn’t believe at first. As soon as those words left my mouth, the light WENT OUT! I was laughing so hard and could barely finish without cramping. It did come back on as the song “Two Steps Behind” by Def Leppard was playing. A beautiful yet perfect song. Lights on, Lights off yet again. Check out that post archived if new here. 😏 The light actually went on and off twice as I questioned the gods up above!! Really, this truly happened. I joked thinking perhaps I’d hear thunder or go see some lightning outside but no!

Does Warrior plan on rewriting my report or maybe even putting better art in? I make my jokes but seriously– it’s totally gone. I’ll let you all know if it turns up somewhere but that light gave me an answer that’s for sure!! I am utterly wowed.. Maybe he’s upset that Hercules and Atlas aren’t in it? Guess they weren’t part of my mindset back then. It’s all good fun as my spiritual connection with Warrior grows stronger all the time. He doesn’t need the physical strength of a god to be truly genuine to me. ❀️ Learn about these legendary myths since you just might not forget a great story like I never did and never will!!!

~~~ P.S. Giant Gonzalez was also a wrestler in the WWE and part of the movie Hercules in the Underworld. (Which I own!)

~~~ P.P.S Dwayne Johnson aka “The Rock” also portrayed Herc in a 2014 movie and now is the host of a new competition show called The Titan Games on NBC.

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!! πŸ—‘

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. ✨⚑️πŸ”₯πŸŽ„πŸ™πŸ»πŸŽ…πŸΌπŸŽ

I H(e)ART Warrior ART

I wanted to discuss Warrior’s art today and how amazing all artists are to me. From drawing to sketching, painting and sculpting, it impresses me all the time. I was spellbound the first time witnessing Warrior make his logo as it was not the way I’d drawn it at all! What a natural talent being able to create something that impacts so many and yet is so simple. I always loved his jackets and the comic book art, not to forget his love of color. My daughter is great at art too- another Gemini trait!

As a child, I must say that art didn’t agree with me. That’s putting it mildly. I realize in school that free art is rarely considered but those “cookie cutter” projects just weren’t for me. My elementary teacher terrified me to the point of faking stomachaches sometimes so I’d stay home from school on art day. I could fool my Mom a little. Am sure the teacher was following a curriculum but your personality still makes a difference, especially to an aspiring child.

If I had to do one more block paper project, I’d scream in class! Let’s not forget all the reprimanding for lack of “perfection.” So glad those days are behind me but the memories always remain. With my children, it’s quite a different story. My eyes well with tears when seeing their art and even those of the kids enrolled in my old elementary school. My kids attend PSR there so I have seen much artwork over the years displayed on the walls. Remember my 7th grade classroom What A Rush story or even The Warrior Book Dream? Those are archived but yep, that’s the school.

I did have to take art in high school as a freshman but so wish now I had taken more. It was very different than anything I ever did before and so much more variety with media. I also did many projects over my years as a preschool teacher and yes, some were “cookie cutter.” I scoffed sometimes but we did have those free art days too. Couldn’t wait to explore all this with my own kids someday. I still have some of their little creations hanging on the attic wall (: My confidence blossomed being able to create and make with the kids while not having a teacher breathing down my neck…

That harbors the question of : “Would I have wanted Warrior as an art teacher?” Yes, he mostly did self-portraits (like all the greats, hehe) and famous men in history but would he ever have been able to teach to let’s say… kids? He was a perfectionist in his own art so that might’ve come out in kids, who knows? If he would’ve approached it the way he did fitness, I’d be in trouble! If he was my high school art teacher— um…. I’d be WAY too distracted or ask for extra help, lol!! πŸ˜‰Art II was self-portraits!!

All kidding aside, whether one likes his artwork or not and just like his performances as a wrestler, he brought a talent that deserves respect. There will always be those naysayers but we need to appreciate the natural abilities all of us have. Even though art frustrated me as a child, I never quit trying. Just like math thru school. It bothered me that I never could get it “just right” when it shouldn’t be that way. Yes, if you’re making a dog it shouldn’t look like a butterfly but am sure you know what I mean!

I detail a chapter in my book Spirit and Belief called “Creativity is Endless” but I mention how art is just one aspect of being creative. Teachers should look for many other forms of expression from kids that encompasses an art curriculum. My cousin is an elementary art teacher and pursued her passion. The kids love her. I have never read anything about Warrior’s natural artistic talent as a child or even later on in life but perhaps he was self-taught. After all, he epitomized that the best.

I am humbled at all artists talent but really we can be any type of artist we want. It is your interpretation of what fits in your LIFE as part of Warrior’s quote above. I hope you can have appreciation for something in a way like art has been for me. I respect Warrior’s art, my own, my kids, and all artists for doing their own LIFE! βœοΈπŸ–πŸ–Œβœ‚οΈπŸŽ¨πŸ–Š

β€œI Can’t Go Anywhere!”

Congratulations!

Today is Your Day.

You’re off to Great Places!

You’re off and away!”

~~~“Oh, The Places You’ll Go.”

~~~ Dr. Seuss, 1990. (love that year!)

I just had to quote that ever famous children’s book. Having been a teacher of young kids for years, it was perfect for today’s post. I immediately thought of that story while remembering the places I went that brought Warrior to mind after he passed.

If you recall in other posts, I’ve mentioned how I can’t go anywhere so wanted to share some of those “great places” that made me laugh and smile thinking of Warrior. Some vacation places stories are in my book Spirit and Belief.

Let’s rewind several years back yet again…

I Can’t Go Anywhere

Feeling like I had brain fog was nothing new as the robotic me had to continue doing tasks while still dealing with the shock of his passing. The grocery store gave me that distraction I needed while walking down the frozen food aisle. Music is frequently playing so perhaps you can guess where this is leading… Have any of you seen the animated movie “Sing?” I know, I know… here I go again with a movie reference and another cartoon but they so connect! Anyways, it’s based on the show “American Idol” only with animals.

There’s this Mama Pig Rosita and she easily becomes one of my favorites. She’s shopping one day, hears music in the store, and breaks out some crazy dance moves! The security camera guy is amazed as she is greeted with applause afterwards. She is politely embarrassed but continues shopping. My adventure wasn’t as daring as Rosita’s but I so felt the music and was dancing with my cart just a little.

They usually play country or easy listening but then two songs in a row by Katy Perry. BOTH made me think of Warrior when they were released. “Roar” and “Firework.” How Ultimate! The lyrics also now make me think of me….. I couldn’t help but dance in the store that day as my fog disappeared for the next hour. Two songs by the same artist in a row in a store that doesn’t play music like that. Oh, the Places I Go.

I Can’t Go Anywhere…

The next place was Target but not in the parking lot this time. My son got a gift card for his birthday and wasn’t sure if he still wanted toys or not. He was ten but we looked in that aisle anyway. I had my eyes glued to where he was while knowing the WWE stuff was right across from us. This was early April 2014 so um, not gonna look over there… That wasn’t a problem at all, yay for my heart! We were however in line with electronics and all the giant big screen T.V’s everywhere. Our Ohio baseball team the Cleveland Indians were playing the Toronto Blue Jays in Toronto. Darn, thought I was in the clear with toys and then I saw that. It’s now called Rogers Centre and not Skydome but still… WMVI for anyone wondering! Who would’ve thought a few years later I’d get my first blue jay feather in line with Warrior. Oh, the Places I Go.

I Can’t Go Anywhere…

Onto place number three. This would be a great three count but I do have a four! I went to Five Below working on some Christmas ideas for the kids a few years ago. I then spotted some preteen girls near the displayed posters. How cool to look thru those and maybe see if some would work for my kids. They still hang up posters, right? If you’re not familiar, you just look at them displayed and then match the number to the rolled up ones on the shelf.

I did get my son a Super Mario characters one and my daughter a dog one but not before seeing another one. Any guesses? Nope, not an Ultimate Warrior one, too tempting–lol! It was a classic WWE poster of past and more recent Superstars. Warrior was right there next to Randy, Andre, Jake Roberts, Rick Rude, Bret Hart, Ted DiBiase, The Rock, Steve Austin, Undertaker, Ric Flair, (I think?) and some others. One person absent– Hulk Hogan. Interesting but I sent a pic to my brother yet again with the caption of this post. Oh, the Places I Go.

I Can’t Go Anywhere…

Here’s the last one and it was out of my memory until seeing something that brought it all back. A few Christmases ago, we took the kids to see the movie “Daddy’s Home.” Yes, a few inappropriate parts but they were getting older. We loved it and glad there’s a sequel.

Right away I noticed they said the movie takes place in New Orleans. (Warrior’s HOF induction city, WMXXX) The one count… Next, the family sits around and watches one of their favorite movies together– “The Princess Bride.” Andre the Giant was in that. The two count… Dana has mentioned their family loving that movie too! Then, nothing else for a while as I just kept thinking where that three count would be or even if there would be one.

Shaking my head while laughing to myself was quite common then. The three count came at the end and for all of you who know the movie, can you tell? John Cena appears! Love how he’s in the second one too. I actually laughed a little too loud in the theater while saying his name! My husband said:”Is he a wrestler?” Oops, well– he knows now and John has been involved in several movies. I remembered all this while watching U.W. wrestle Andre on the Ultimate Collection DVD one day. Oh, the Places I Go.

Well, there’s my stories for now and am sure there are others but these along with the Dr. Seuss book remained in my head. Like I’ve said before, it’s the little things and expect the unexpected. Do your life and the “signs” will appear. It could be places, people, or things but just become aware. I am grateful for this journey of mine and Warrior’s everyday. Too many things to not connect and dismiss.

Think of everything you are grateful for as this holiday approaches. Really stop and appreciate all the Universe gives us and say “thanks.” That doesn’t seem enough but it means everything.

Thank you warrior fans for all you do to keep his legacy alive while remaining true to yourself too. Roar, be that firework, dance, sing, play ball, shop, take photos, watch movies, and enjoy the little things. Who knows where you’ll go along the way…
