100 Warrior Writings

Well, Warrior fans, we’ve come upon another milestone. It’s official that these writings have reached 100 posts. WordPress told me that number happened a few weeks ago but that was including photos I posted without text. That doesn’t count for me but this does.

I was thinking of so many things to include like: “100 reasons…” or “Best Warrior quotes ever…” but then that just sounded so self-indulgent. I wasn’t even jumping up and down or wanting to shout it from the rooftops. Nope, not my style. It’s extremely humbling thinking this all began for me in the summer of June 2016 outside in my hammock. Never did I think blog at the time, or book, or even going longer than a year! I was ready to “retire” this blog last December before beginning my new one at: www.spiritandbelief.com in January.

Warrior kept going and inspiring me with so much to tell. 2 years, 40 countries, and all of YOU. 100 posts. I can’t even begin to comprehend all these writings and how it has impacted me. I sure hope you have been touched in some way or at least in the “Warrior way.”

I’m linking one of my favorite YouTube videos of him and there are sooo many but am sure some of you fans have your favorites also. Feel free to share them with me or connect on here, YouTube, Twitter, or however you wish! I love them all but definitely have my faves.

I will share a quote from Chapter 5 from the book: “Women Who Run With The Wolves” which I’ve discussed before but this TOTALLY applies to my journey with Warrior:

“There is a saying that when the student is ready, the teacher appears…. It is our work to learn. Without a task that challenges, there can be no transformation…” ~~~

Clarissa Pinkola Estes, 1992.

I thank Warrior.

I thank you Fans + Followers.

I thank Myself.

100 means ENERGY that’s self-determined, independent, and has infinite potential. 1 is leadership and 0 is openness, being whole. That’s me and these writings– being WHOLE. Happy 100 WarriorWritings! Don’t worry– 101 is coming about Halloween! I know Warrior is proud and I feel his energy everyday.

Conquer Those Firsts Warriors!

Those things we do for the first time can be very daunting and there are many reasons as to why. I bet you can list many firsts in your life and remember how they made you feel. Sometimes it might not turn out the way you’d hoped but at least you can say: “I did it!”

Of course my life has also been made up of many firsts but this always connects to Warrior so where do I start? First, he taught me to become a leader. He was and still is one but now I am in my own way. Warrior said to: “Inspire people, don’t instruct people!” Very true for me. We should all think like that for others. Never did I imagine that role within this life of mine but it exists and I am doing it!

Next, I mentioned 4.5 years last week (technically it was Monday) BUT 4 years ago was my Box experience. That wasn’t a first for me with a psychic sense but a first with Warrior. I am glad it wasn’t the start of my gifts opening since I knew the signs which made it so much easier. Check out that story blogged here archived as: The Box” ~~6/16/17 (his bday) and in my book!

I just celebrated the first anniversary of my book Spirit and Belief being released. Hard to believe an entire year has flown by… Thank you to anyone who has become inspired with my stories of Warrior. Another first is my radio interview in just a few hours so whew!

Firsts can be hard but hopefully you can look back on yours and believe they were and are worth it. Whether or not many agree with some of Warrior’s firsts, the man had guts to do them anyway. It is different of course being on T.V. with all the other factors of ratings, fans, popularity, and so on. That’s all true and sometimes there are compromises. I firmly believe Warrior’s decisions were based on how he viewed the character while also constantly being challenged.

To step up and conquer those firsts no matter how big or small is always what we need to do so our lives move forward. WMVI had plenty of those so I hope you do too. Probably not in the same way but do those firsts you need to succeed.

Any type of first will boost your confidence so the next one becomes easier. Never regret doing them since it always is a learning experience. The how maybe can be questioned later but at least you conquered a first so take pride in that!

Do those firsts for the right reasons that you believe in. Don’t listen to others who say you’re crazy or can’t. I bet deep down you’d feel crazy for not proving you can. Do those firsts to better your life and not just to win a popularity contest. Shake those ropes and wear those arm tassels proudly! Just because nobody else has or hasn’t already, doesn’t mean it won’t become a first for you. If you conquer the fear, you conquer the first. Your spirit will thank you…

Think back to your baby book if you ever had one or made them for your kids. All those firsts are in there from the start. You can have a grown up book or journal with all your adult firsts too. Make that list to motivate you and keep adding those firsts.

Look at all the firsts Dana has had to do and yet she continues on since the warrior woman in her thrives. Even if you fall flat on your face, you can laugh and say: “First time for everything!” I still am in awe with all my firsts on this journey of mine. Not only writing but now speaking has become a first. I could never have done any of this, not ANY of it without Warrior.

I thought about listing all his firsts but didn’t want to be a google of information since you can all check that stuff out anytime. Hopefully, your good firsts outweigh the bad and my wish is that others will remember the GOOD firsts of Warrior and the messages behind them all. They all count, in or out of the ring.

Well, I’m off to prepare for this first of a radio interview and can’t wait to tell you all about it soon! Conquer your firsts warriors and OWN them so you can look back and say: “I did it!”

Firehouse Subs, Songs, and Warrior!

I really wanted a photo of the sub shop but didn’t want to drive by as a stalker so this menu will have to do. 🌯😳 What a funny few days this turned out to be so I hope you do some laughing like I did! 🤣 My husband and I ate dinner a few weeks ago at Firehouse Subs and they are always so yummy. Music is playing outside (so cool!!) and the song was: “Heaven is a Place on Earth” by Belinda Carlisle. I love that song especially the lyric about not being afraid anymore…. perfect. Also, have you seen the Progressive commercial with Jamie and his “singing angels” singing this song? It makes me laugh every time as I sing along…

The music inside was totally today’s hits or songs my 12 year old daughter loves but sometimes I know too. Several of them were played in a row and then I hear (OMG moment) “The Warrior” by Scandal. I almost choked on my Diet Coke while remaining calm. 😉😜 I still was thinking of an elusive Emmy Award that my feelings have earned! What a rarity to hear that song. Then, it hit me differently… First, that song always made me cry but now I laugh and second, it really sunk in as to where we were– Firehouse Subs.

I totally remember finding some old YouTube videos of Warrior’s from 1995. (think red tank top and gym for anyone searching)– which I was NOT! I believe one of the songs in the background was a Firehouse song based on some comments I read. The guy who filmed Warrior actually mentioned how Warrior loved the song “Love of a Lifetime” by Firehouse.

He also said that Warrior wore it out on a cassette tape he always listened to. I couldn’t believe what I was reading! Believe it or not, I loved that song too and taped it on one of my blank tapes! Yes, that’s what us girls did back then and yes, I did also tape “The Warrior.” I also had a personal connection with the Firehouse song which made me remember and was overwhelmed again. Hopefully, he thought of Dana with that song since it’s such a great one. I did leave a comment on that YouTube page too!

The interesting thing is that when I went to look back on that video and find those comments for this blog (just to make sure)– I couldn’t find them. Maybe they were deleted but I know what I read. Very bizarre how they disappeared but great knowing that about Warrior and the song.

The last song reference was “Missing” by Everything but the Girl. Guess what? I taped that one too and was just stunned to hear it as well at Firehouse Subs. Some of the lyrics fit with Warrior back then and now– no judging me-hehe! I can’t even remember the last time I heard that song at all so between “Missing” and “The Warrior,” they didn’t seem to fit with the regular music the shop was playing. This DOES get more interesting……

While at the hair salon the next day ( the place to be lately!) I was sitting in the chair with my hair filled foil highlights. Not many people there that day and my stylist left me for about 20 minutes to let the color sink in. I was just casually reading a magazine and the speaker plays “Missing.” Are you kidding me? To hear a song TWICE within 24 hours and not even one I hear often is cosmic! Could Warrior have been helping out a little here with his energy? I’ve been known to get so many funny things as most of you are aware.

It’s highly possible and I do have a “vibe” with music. There is constant inspiration for new blogs so who knows? I always believe and even if he wasn’t orchestrating in some way, I do laugh and talk it thru every single time. I never know if he’s around for those types of moments, watching, or listening. Some times–yes, for sure! I do check in and share my stories while picturing him laughing so hard! My goosebumps are a sure sign but they’re not always present.

That’s my story for now so I hope you are laughing and possibly believing. The Universe does play little tricks and coincidences are not what they seem. We do need humor and whether you get this whole “spirit vibe” or not, be amused with whatever life throws your way. Put aside the serious for a bit and have some fun. I needed those jokes as my “business” side with the book became overwhelming last week. You can find all my music references in my book : Spirit and Belief. Until next time, try Firehouse Subs if you have those shops. They play really COOL music…

P.S. Maybe I’ll hear “Missing” again as a 3 count but I did get 3 songs connected to me!

P.P.S. I found my tapes! “Love of a Lifetime” is separate but “The Warrior” and “Missing” are on the same one! ( yes, it was planned…)

One more-/ GET THIS–/ I heard “Love of a Lifetime” ALSO twice within 2 days on Pandora, that never happens. The second time was on my birthday… 💖🍷🙏🏻💪🏻

Spirit and Belief News!

It’s my birthday so wanted this post to be all about the exciting events happening with my book Spirit and Belief! #thankyouWarrior

I was interviewed last night by my spiritual group — Harmonic Journeys for their podcast. I thank Mary for her friendship, support, and the conversation. Can’t wait to have it posted on here for all of you to listen! I shared my journey of spiritual gifts, Warrior stories, and where to find me. It was a great time (: I will post their link below if anyone is interested in them or the podcasts.

That was great practice for another interview I have coming soon for a nationally syndicated radio show! I was contacted by LitFire Publishing to participate in some marketing ideas for my book so am thrilled to share and educate all I can. Kate Delaney of America Tonight will be conducting the interview and I’ll post her info and bio below as well. She has interviewed people in sports, politics, (she spoke with Jesse Ventura about politics!) news, celebrities, and she is an author herself. Once that comes out, I’ll have it available and would love your feedback Warrior fans!

I am also participating in another Author Library Conference in October. This time, instead of a small table discussion with another author– there will be over 50! Very excited to converse with fellow writers and aspiring authors while sharing my spiritual journey. Who knows? Maybe I’ll get some Warrior “vibes” that day like last time!!!

What’s going on with YOU Warrior fans? I would love to hear your stories, fan memories, if you feel him spiritually, or anything you’d like to share. I know it takes guts to leave a comment but we’re all fans so no pressure! I just love hearing how he inspired others too besides me so FEEL FREE, no judging here. You can also connect with me on my YouTube page, amazon, or I do have an Amazon Author Page that is up and running. My other blog is linked to that but info for the book is available there too.

I wish you all great ultimate success with whatever you are working on in your life and continue crushing those goals! Mr. Warrior would want nothing less of you so do the work everyday. Let me know your Ultimate Warrior memories, come on— I KNOW you all have plenty!

“Do You Want to go Play Some Games?”

I bet you warrior fans are trying so hard connecting this title with that photo! I must admit it is kinda weird so let me explain… 😜 This story fits in the “dream” category but I love this title so much better. Plus, “The Wedding Reception Dream” sounded too much like “The Wedding Near Smoothie King” and this title is way funnier! Another dream that was very odd but decided to share it anyway. That just leaves one more I haven’t told so probably a no on that one… 😉too silly and brief!

Last May of 2017, I attended a cousin’s wedding out of town. The reception was by the lake and we all had such a great time celebrating this young couple. Fast forward about 5 months later when this “new” dream with Warrior occurred. My childhood backyard was the location of a wedding reception involving the bride’s sister of 5 months prior. Um, what? I couldn’t even remember her having a sister! Why in the world would this be the setting and for someone I didn’t even know? I have learned sometimes that doesn’t matter.

I do remember as a child always thinking of our family’s backyard to be a great space for a wedding reception. Perhaps my brain just took the last one I went to and found a new bride! I was upstairs in my old bedroom looking down at all the beautiful scenery with lots of white lights strewn about. There were tables and chairs everywhere and the party had started. Again– another question as to why I was alone looking out…? Hmm… Anyway, while spanning the crowd, I saw Warrior wearing his gray and red suit you see in the photo!

My mouth fell open as I literally flew down the stairs and out the door! Once outside, I couldn’t find him anywhere until my mom and brother pointed in the direction of where he went. Guess they were helping me out! I actually found him and realized I forgot my phone to snap a photo of us together. He seemed rushed as a man was ushering him elsewhere but said he’d be right back. What in the world was going on? Why was he even here?

That gave me time to go all the way back and grab my phone. I found him again in the crowd and said what a fan I was (am) while probably babbling incoherently, who knows???!!! 😀😆 We took a few photos ( so awesome in most of these dreams!) but then I asked why he was here as he didn’t know anyone. I was so confused but all he did was laugh without really answering me.

Before the dream ended, he asked me: “Do You Want to go Play Some Games?” The couple were video game arcade fanatics and there were many placed throughout the yard. I couldn’t believe he was asking me this while no mention of wrestling, his life now, family, or anything else. I just stood there not fully knowing what to say as he walked in the direction of the games. I followed him towards that area and woke up. No idea if we ever played any or not. 🎮

WOW… I’m not a professional dream interpreter but most of mine are easy to figure out. This one like a few others, not so much. I do remember Dana saying how she wished he’d “played more.” Not sure if she meant games with the girls (probably not!) or just having fun more in general. I played with my kids when they were little but as they age… sigh.., Maybe I was privy to new information. Maybe he IS playing games with all his wrestling buddies now like he seldom did on Earth? Maybe so……. I still think little things are funny and you know what? Warrior does too! I am proof of this time and again with my synchronicities.

I also must admit that after I had the first few dreams of him as a wrestler, I asked for one of him like the Warrior of today. I say today because it’s true. Well, I got several of him looking like the guy similar in the photo and my dreams equal 6. Another funny little joke of ours with that number and yes, I laughed again remembering them all. They have all mostly been written! I’ve had others mentioning him but without his presence. I will take them all as they show me so much on this journey.

I never know what the storyline or setting will be just like back in his prime days of wrestling but if he is part of it, I am watching or participating. ***Ask for some dreams warriors– you just may get a few good ones. Don’t forget to play some games along the way! #besilly #dreambig #alwaysbelieve

~~~Next week it’s my BIRTHDAY so what better way than to share great exciting news happening for my book! Can’t wait to fill you all in!! Happy Dreaming warriors! 😴

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. 😢💔

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… 😜💖 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. 😂 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

Warrior Book Event

Last week, I had the pleasure of sharing my book Spirit and Belief at beautiful Namaste Life Center. Theresa had it all so wonderfully inviting as I walked into that back room feeling so overwhelmed and humbled. Immediately, I felt at home and welcomed. Despite those in attendance being few, all listened, contributed, and supported me on my journey.

One woman related her time spent working at the restaurant in the old Richfield Coliseum here in Ohio and a wrestler she encountered. She asked me to describe the Ultimate Warrior and the years he was in the business. That was a great memory for me to describe! A wrestler with short hair (probably not Warrior, lol!) left a “script” for her as a gift! Wow, how exciting and fun getting that. Too bad she lost it after keeping it almost thirty years….. 😕

Another woman told me to “never doubt myself” as I don’t yet always am humbled while my lightheadedness began. Don’t worry since that’s a good sign of mine! She also said the hair on the back of her head was standing up as I was speaking. I asked if that was common for her and she truly believed Warrior was present. ❤️ I was filled with such gratitude once again.

The owner commented after I briefly shared the Cavs/Warrior basketball stories in my book. As most of you might know, numbers and dates are huge with me. I discussed June 16th being Warrior’s birthday and she interrupted. To summarize, as a child she was deeply affected by the movie Brian’s Song while crying buckets for a long time. She never forgot that and decided with her abilities to finally sign up for www.ancestry.com After much research, she found out Brian Piccolo whose life the movie is based upon, was a seventh cousin of hers. Yes, that’s quite far back but STILL a huge deal to be connected. Brian Piccolo died on June 16th, just sayin’… Who knows with Warrior but I will forever wonder.

It was such a great afternoon just hanging with these beautiful spiritual people and sharing our experiences together. They came to listen to me without judgment or disbelief. I got asked questions about meditation and what techniques work best. I felt so honored sharing what works for me. I have an entire blog post on www.spiritandbelief.com and a YouTube video on meditation so hopefully, she’ll get some ideas!

I was always so inspired with Warrior’s teachings and now others are inspired by mine. I never would’ve even guessed that about myself but am owning my stories with pride. Some have even had many more spiritual experiences than mine and I did get asked if I ever was scared. My answer was no based on my signs and trust. I gotta say though if I had something more extreme, that could change! Intimidated–sometimes but fearful, never.

It felt so natural speaking to these people while injecting my humor too! I mentioned Dana, Steve, and other newer experiences blogged about but not in the book. Can’t wait to possibly plan another event there as the energy was so positive with these like-minded people.

We can be inspired but then need to be the inspiration as Warrior has said. Just the other day, I ran into an old friend who I had lost touch with. After a few years of just connecting on Facebook, the hair salon brought us back together. We chatted in-between highlights as she proceeded to tell me how I always inspired her. Who, me? I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. We always did sit together at PTA meetings but no idea of her admiration for me.

Some of our “situations” always connected us but she had been thinking of me lately. She even coined a new phrase: ” What would Kathy do?” I felt dazed yet so guided as my confidence inspires her. Wow… Talk about a Warrior Woman moment. She brought up past memories when I followed the beat of my own drum and did things my way. Why yes, I still do that but to be told of your influence doesn’t happen often– at least not to me. We will stay in touch as I admire her tenacity to juggle so much in her life all the time.

Be inspired but also be the inspiration even if you don’t think you can or are. Little moments surprise us but then the big planned ones can too. I had a big planned event and then an unexpected one that both overtook me with such joy. As I am looking up outside, I see a dragonfly. Oh, and those blue jay feathers keep coming just about everyday. It’s beautiful and humorous all at once. There’s that inspiration yet again warriors…….
