Change is Acceptance πŸŽ¨

We can change our physical appearance like the Ultimate Warrior did to his face with war paint but I’m talking deeper changes that need acceptance. Also- to all you ultimate fans out there, I’m not referencing the title belts that would switch waists with a win or loss. Nope, not that either. Although- WMVI did have its share of changes that defied tradition but let’s move on.

Do you handle change well warriors with acceptance or do you fight it? All of us are dealing with extreme change as a result of this worldly virus but the acceptance part is the hardest. So very frustrating indeed… We love our routines and schedules but hate when they get interrupted or changed beyond our control. It’s easy when things are going our way but then something makes us detour. Maybe it’s good, maybe it’s bad or maybe it’s just different.

Transitions make up our lives from family, careers, life choices, and all that with some being our choosing. It’s when we don’t or can’t choose which causes us to deny or accept. Warrior’s passing created change in all us fans with acceptance not even an option then. We all am sure have lost loved ones but when death is unexpected at the time, the change creates shock. That shock eventually turns into the reality of acceptance over time but never completely vanishes from our memory. Warrior himself had to accept change from his physical body to an energetically spiritual one. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’™

I have evolved spiritually these last six years with ways I never fully accepted because of change. Sure, I always did have little things but as with any type of growth, the ripples turn into waves. 🌊 Those littles became bigger and manifested for me in such a beautiful way. My emotions initially were so out of control and I fought that change constantly. Once I surrendered, the acceptance came easier.

Personally, I should be used to change. With living in Ohio, sometimes we have all four seasons in one day!!! Seriously though, how have changes in your life created a better acceptance? Some decisions are excruciatingly hard to accept but there comes a time when we need to. People may live their lives very different from us and change may be worth the risk for them. We need to accept that whether or not in agreement. Remember, respect goes a long way.

As parents, it’s all about change and acceptance. Kids grow and change and us grownups need to accept their growth as part of life. This applies to everyone really and it’s all in the way you handle it. Do I get mad over changes in my life which I can’t control? Absolutely. It’s o.k. to vent and shout and cry and scream. Just don’t live there very long. It’s a challenge letting go of how things used to be, the good ol’ days, or yesteryear. We will always have those close to our hearts but life is worth moving on to see the next chapter. You and your spirit deserve more. Others may not get that chance.

Even businesses don’t keep things the same always. You fans of WWE probably know what I’m talking about here. If any of you are part of a business or run one, am sure you’ve encountered changes that others need to accept. We even change things in our homes, yards, hairstyles, workouts, and all those other minor things. Those of course like the Ultimate Warrior’s many changes over the years are a little easier to accept. It’s the big huge life altering ones that truly test our mental resolve.

Change can also be about compromise which still keeps our hand somewhat in control. Then, there are times when it’s all or nothing. Lately, I’ve been meditating on how to best handle the word acceptance. It’s everywhere just like energy. We do need to see the positive thru the negative but our fighting spirit will resist only for so long. Acceptance brings new change ever so slowly at first. Us humans have a hard time with the negative part of that word and even Warrior did.

My wish today is for all of you to find that good acceptance beyond the change that seems bad. Without it, we will never fully find out what we are truly made of. ~~~ All ultimate GRIT!

P.S. I recently found out more about Lebron James wearing the Ultimate Warrior t-shirt. If anyone had watched some of the news conferences, he’d sport the likes of Sting, Ric Flair, and the Undertaker. His wife packed bags with wrestling shirts. The U.W. shirt was the only one left in his bag. He did say he would’ve worn it even if the Cavs lost! ~~~ So glad I found that out (: πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ€

The Deep End πŸŠπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ’¦

A night early as I have some last minute things to take care of tomorrow morning…

Music is always there for me warriors. From the beginning even until now. 🎼 The song “Shallow” sung by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper from the movie “A Star is Born” inspired this post today. Parts of it sum up my spiritual life and how it has evolved with Warrior. “… we’re far from the shallow now.” I am reminded of him with another lyric: “Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore?”

The shallow end leads to the deep end but are you willing to “swim” there too? Maybe many thought Warrior was too far off the deep end with his disciplines and beliefs but being extreme propelled him to keep swimming.

A pool metaphor is perfect as I had two growing up, my husband had one, and we are now onto our second one with the kids. How many of you jump or dive right in? Maybe you feel more comfortable taking your time perhaps dipping a toe in at first. I have done both but am more of the toe girl or having a raft to float on. We used to laugh at my Dad who’d get in the pool like he was bathing. He’d splash the water up and down his arms and chest similar to lather! That was his way of getting used to the water temperature.

Am sure those of you with pools or swimmers can understand this. I’d love swimming in an in ground pool and being capable enough to go out to the deep end. It was so freeing and grown-up even though nobody can touch in 8 or 9 feet of water. I did it because I could and wanted to but sometimes also as a dare. I was a great swimmer and always last getting out of the pool. My Mom called me the family fish. 🐠

With other aspects in life, the “deep end” can seem scary and intimidating. I was never pushed off a diving board but sometimes we seem pushed to succeed. Even babies learn to hold their breath by being dunked underwater. Staying in the shallow end is fine but then you’ll never experience all the deep end has to offer. Sure, it’s risky but life can be which we do need. Think of all the times you went in the deep end metaphorically and did it pay off? Sometimes– yes, sometimes–no. Warrior and I have both had those moments. I bet you do too if you think hard enough. Not being careless but just experiences we all have.

Even though our professional lives were very different, publishing something brought us similarities. Warrior had high expectations (I believe at the time) with his comic books and later on, they didn’t sell very well. I love mine which was blogged as “The Spiritual Warrior” 8/22/18. I had bought too many copies of my book Spirit and Belief thinking I could hand sell them. Both of us off the deep end just a little but lessons learned. Sometimes we do need to tread water while remembering to keep our head afloat.

Perhaps you love the shallow because it’s comfortable but you’ll never feel challenged and life really is the whole pool. Warrior would dive in with ideas for his character but sometimes Vince would pull him back to the shallow just a little. My evolvement with Warrior was like dipping a toe in the water because that created longevity. If I dove head first in the water back then, I surely would’ve drown. Do you feel that way?

It’s the head and heart balance always. We need both but then that gut instinct treads along too. Our passions may push us into the water but we can choose the shallow or deep end. We need those ends just how life truly is. Some may never swim to the deep and that is their choice. Will they regret it? Who knows but life shouldn’t be about regrets. Again, a balance of being comfortable and taking chances.

I’m not a huge risk taker but I do when my interests push me farther out to that deep end. After all, if nothing interests you why swim to the deepest part when everything you need is in the shallow? I find that hard to believe but really it’s the fear. It’s the fear holding you back and not the water or situation itself. You can have others teach you to swim but you’ll eventually have to take off those floaties and just go… This is true of any other metaphor you want to connect with.

You will not feel bad about swimming for that deep end even if you can’t touch the bottom. I remember trying water skiing and being the only one in our group to attempt. I wanted to do it for me and because I love water sports, not just to impress. Never mastered it and ended up falling! After choking for a few minutes ( cue slight embarrassment πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ) I did get back up and try again. Despite the outcome, I went towards a deep end while others stayed in the shallow.

Warrior was a deep end guy and not just with his character. His philosophies and introverted way of thinking I highly admire because we are the same like that. Deep end thinkers work too, not just for swimming. So, warriors the shallow or deep end? You’ll be in both but don’t fear the deep. You won’t drown if you keep swimming to the other side. Take that life preserver if you need it. Look back at the shallow and know how far you’ve gone. The water of life is waiting… “I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in…”

P.S. Remember water is essential for us. It is fluid and always moving. You need to be that way too. We all do.

30 Years of Time…πŸ•°

How about this date warriors? April 1st is a Wednesday this year which also means Happy 30th Anniversary to Wrestlemania VI on blog day! When I look back, that was more than half my lifetime ago. This post isn’t about “The Ultimate Challenge” but more about that number of 30. Here are some interesting facts about these years of time connecting to me, Warrior, and possibly all of you old enough to relate…

First, Warrior (Jim Hellwig) won Mr. Georgia back in 1984. That Junior Level Bodybuilding Competition was held in New Orleans. Flash forward 30 years later to 2014 in New Orleans AGAIN for his WWE HOF induction during WMXXX weekend. Wow… 30 connects once more. This man had so many dates in alignment, I can’t even keep up sometimes. But, yes I guess I can… Second, let’s look at some dates of mine. I BREATHE this one out a little more. Back in April of 1990, I was the same age as Mattigan Warrior is now (Warrior’s younger daughter). Technically, not in the same grade and minus a few months because of our birthdays but both 17(going on 18.) Her Daddy won that title when I was her age and it is very surreal to me. Am sure some of you are my age but for me, it’s a little more. 😊

That also means she and I are 30 years apart as I believe her mother Dana and I are the same age as well. So synchronistic on this journey. I don’t go looking for comparisons really warriors. My stories just seem to come and then line up in ways I never thought about– until now. I do have many connections with numbers and dates as numerology does play a significant role in my life. Does it for you too?

In another post of last year, I mentioned time with references to my kids. For those without kids, it can be other frames of time you reflect on. I’ve said how a memory can come back in a second and then sometimes we may have to recall a little more. Is it yesterday in your mind or does time really seem to be that long? However it is for you, make it count which I’ve also said many times. We can’t make time stop but it can slow down some. Just look at our global world right now. Maybe we do need that downtime despite setbacks temporarily.

Let’s not constantly run to that ring of life always anticipating the next and next. Sometimes, professionally we need to do that like WWE performers but get that relaxed time too. I realize we all have life choices, careers, families, and such but if your time doesn’t slow just a little, you’ll miss out on those moments that matter most. I know some who will say it won’t make a difference or we’ll rest when we retire but it doesn’t have to be like that. Just enjoy the present since those with kids understand how fast they do indeed grow up.

I’m not saying don’t socialize ever ( well, this time is different right now…) but become more mindful with your actions. Don’t be so rushed that your memories become a blur. You’ll get so burned out that important milestones or even everyday life will be hard to remember. Your thoughts will be centered among the next best thing around the corner. Take that downtime you need everyday and just be. That’s it. Of course not all day but some time for you enjoying the moment and memories it will bring.

Can you remember what your life was like 30 years ago warriors? I am soo jealous of anyone present in that Toronto Skydome!! Hopefully, most who are reading are older than that number to remember but if not, try just 10 years ago. How old were you and are you doing things you set out to do? NEVER could I have predicted this future for myself back at the age of 17. I know 30 is a big chunk of time for some but truly try with any number that has a special meaning to you. What you remember most is what counts, even if it’s a bad experience. It’s yours and hopefully you’re stronger for it. You may not have numbers and dates like me and Warrior but yours play such a big part in this life, live them well.

Sure, we can reflect easier with movies, books, videos, and photographs but it’s your heart that brings those memories to the surface. When I look back fondly on WMVI, it isn’t always the DVD or pictures I gravitate toward. It’s my mind and heart together as I hope that never ends. Last year brought many milestones and now this year brings others. It does go on. Next year, WMVII will be 30 and that will bring another. Look at what needed to happen for WM36 this year! Another milestone indeed although unexpected.

So, spend that time needed reflecting warriors and slow down sometimes. We do need to. I imagine Warrior is too in some ways as a spirit although remember– ENERGY never goes away! Believe me on this. πŸ˜‰πŸ’™ All Wrestlemania’s will have their own significant milestone memories with time just like your own lives with moments lived. Warrior says a similar statement during his Aug. 1998 WCW Nitro speech to “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan.

Would I want to be 17 again? Nah, too emotional plus there’s a movie title for that! ~~ Happy 30th Anniversary to WMVI and all the performers. Thanks for the memories of time… The Ultimate Challenge of WMVI becoming 30 this year like Warrior as a spirit now for almost 6… 30 and 6 once again…… πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ»

Never Say Never πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Yep, that’s right warriors. Never Say Never. Not to yourself or anyone else since that’s a dream killer. Warrior never said it but had it said to him. Alright, o.k., he never even liked pro wrestling at all so am sure he never thought of becoming one later in life. There were those who thought he’d never do much of anything or even succeed with his Ultimate Warrior character. He never wavered and disproved their blatant attitudes of never. I never pictured writing a blog, book, or even having a spiritual connection with Warrior at all. Things start out one way and then end up another. Consider some common “never” statements:

“I would never parent my kids that way! ( you might end up anyhow)

“I would never be intimate before marriage…” ( most are anyway)

“I am never having more than one child!” ( guess what? You may have more)

“I’m never getting another dog ever again!” ( Now, you have 2)

~~ Do you say statements like these? So many things in life start with us not wanting, saying, or doing but they might just happen anyhow.

Perhaps you even say those never statements to another. I’ve had a few said to me like:

” You’ll never get a tattoo.” ( I have 3)

“You’ll never put blond in your hair!” ( I did until recently)

“You’ll never eat avocados!” ( Yes, I do and love them)

I bet you don’t regret doing those actions that were first part of a never. It can be anything from going to an expensive restaurant, ( just NOT now, yikes…) traveling to a foreign country, ( Again, NOT now, ugh…) or even just binge watching your favorite reality show on Netflix. Fill in the blank:

“I would never…….”–Do you believe it? Most young girls or women probably think more about the big life stuff but guys– correct me if I’m wrong! Some girls will say: “I am never waiting until my thirties to start a family.” Or even: “I will never not be your best friend.” Life happens and situations are always very different. I actually said I always wanted 4 kids but now never can imagine that at all. Once I had 2 and with both being sick at birth, plans changed. Never say never comes in many ways and some we don’t even realize.

Just remember to attack and slay that never just like a warrior. Even the Ultimate one had to slay his teen nevers which then became his professional nevers said by some. We are not spiting here ( which I know sounds good) but doing it for ourselves. By doing it for YOU, it will allow your life to be free from all those never naysayers pinning you to the mat.

If you have those “never” lists, life isn’t a challenge to explore. It becomes a desperate attempt to conquer anything frantically that isn’t a never in the first place. Who says you will NEVER________. Forget it! If you say it, you will believe it. Don’t believe it or even what others are saying. Believe that you can and you will. Some goals may seem highly unattainable but it’s o.k. to keep dreaming…

When I have done some things in my life, it was me evolving and not necessarily proving someone wrong. Warrior was the same way and he wants his legion of fans to be also. It will fuel your fire to prove others wrong but always do it for YOU. I can’t say that enough. It’s like changing the word CAN’T into CAN or WON’T into will. Get rid of Never! It serves no purpose at all. Don’t use it for yourself and watch how you say words to others always.

*** I have something Extremely personal with my life that was brought into my awareness but NEVER thought it would be part of me. I laugh at it just a little but realize it’s importance and significance. It was something I kinda fought it most of the time but as it turns out, a real life changer that will forever impact and influence me. No, I’m not talking about these writings perse but just a simple word that encompasses me. It’s also not the word warrior for all you guessers… πŸ˜‰ Such an interesting turn of life events as I frequently said how I’d NEVER want this.., Did have to do some research too! Now, I treasure it like nothing else, always have and always will… πŸ’–***

So, warriors– never say never. Once you do, you’re setting yourself up for a loss and sometimes life will bite you in the A_ _! Take all those never statements and erase them from your mind. Even if someone issues you a never, fight like that warrior and clothesline it down! That never becomes a maybe and then perhaps even a YES! “Never will I” becomes “Always will I.” Just like I always believe and NEVER won’t!

P.S. I thought to use that photo of Warrior and Vince in the book “A Life Lived Forever” from RAW 4/7/14. People did caption that with “Never Say Never.” It’s way too personal for me since my brother had sent that to me right before Warrior past…. So, um– no… It is a great photo though!πŸ’™

P.P.S. PLEASE stay healthy warriors during this global virus…. WASH THOSE HANDS!!! πŸš°πŸ˜·πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

The Silver Feathers

Are you aware of #ThrowbackThursday? Well, I’m gonna switch that today to #ThrowbackWednesday because I can! My reason is this story to share that relates to three others very similar. Those were about a candle lantern, a real sign, and a feather box. All have been blogged but the candle lantern story is told in my book Spirit and Belief. Those items were bought in actual stores but that feather necklace you see on the right was bought in the Amazon store.

The Ultimate Warrior had a feather earring somewhat similar to mine but is that why I bought it? OF COURSE NOT! Several months ago, I wanted some new jewelry that reflected my spiritual life now. Sometimes it’s just bad karma I guess since most of my stuff breaks! I just blogged about karma on my other site a few days ago… I love all my jewelry and wear most frequently so probably shouldn’t anymore.

Handmade pieces are the best because of the personal craftsmanship and time involved. Many spiritual shops or fairs will sell jewelry made of crystals or delicate gems. It’s so hard to decide. I had three crystal bracelets and all fell apart! Ugh.. I still display them but decided to move onto necklaces. A few I do have use these cord ties which come loose. What’s a girl to do? Buying in person is usually my thing but Amazon seemed the way to go. My pink quartz heart necklace with the Tree of Life always gets compliments but I wanted another. Feathers popped in my head and how perfect for this journey! Check out previous posts on feathers or in my book and you’ll know why. πŸ˜‰

This silver one caught my eye which made me look no further. Yay for stronger chains and these new necklaces are working out well. Little did I know or even remember Warrior sporting an earring or two back then. I seemed to recall a stud but a feather was too far to go back in the ‘ol noggin. The Ultimate Collection DVD is now almost 6 years old and never did I notice until recently. I actually used that image in “Longevity’s Long Life” if you look suuuper closely. He did have his mask as part of it but it wasn’t until a YouTube video made me notice more. I just laughed yet again at such a silly similarity! πŸ˜‚ After all, he did send me my first feather since I always believe. Here’s the 1st video you see above:

https://youtu.be/GFvzQhzsg9o (3:25)

Here’s another:

https://youtu.be/12d0I4C-fOE(1:42)

~~ Videos Credited to RocketFuel. Great memories with interviews and promos of U.W. for all you fans!

Have you ever noticed something for the first time warriors when it’s really been there all the time? For me, it seems to be a constant that doesn’t end- even years later. Items can serve you well even if you aren’t aware at the time. It all connects to synchronicity and your life. I’ve also mentioned my past with old VHS wrestling tapes. I would never notice something for years and then see it for the first time after owning it a while. For many of you it’s a little different as am sure it is! It can be anything but I’m talking about a personal connection that means something. Not just a new outfit or haircut. We’ve all watched our favorite shows or movies over and over again. Did you notice a scene or reaction of someone in a different way? I bet you have..

Maybe someone has done something anonymously for you without your knowledge over time? You can be like me with getting signs. Do you see something many times over again that seems significant but you shrug it off? Pay attention since those signs do mean a connector to you in some way. It doesn’t have to be feathers at all. I actually see the word warrior in just about every book I read-for real! Sometimes, it doesn’t even seem to fit at all. Now, I know better since without me knowing then, it IS the right book at the time.

Here’s a quick example: We recently got rid of our old bedroom carpet and now have this beautiful new gray wood flooring with a big area rug. What if this were you but felt intimidated taking on a massive project? Over the course of a few days, you hear the song: “Magic Carpet Ride” on the radio, a store is having a huge blow-out sale on flooring, and a friend mentions this new tapestry she just bought. That’s how it works warriors. Mine was kinda like that with the silver feathers. Broken bracelets, wanting something spiritual, finding the DVD image, and the YouTube video. So many stories have lined up that way with me on this ride with Warrior and it is truly ultimate!

Try to look at something in a different way for the first time. Really observe and you might notice a new perspective. It can be silly or extremely personal. Either way, your noticing matters and connects to YOU. I love my silver feather as a I know Warrior approves! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’™

P.S. I do have a “Warrior” totem engraved on a necklace. I didn’t even know that when first picking it up at a fair years ago. It’s similar to the “Warrior” crystals I have too. The string on the necklace broke but luckily I had an extra chain (: I’m wearing that necklace in the post “Speak Your Truth Warriors” blogged 10/17/18.

Who’s Your #GOAT? πŸ˜¬πŸ€”

I’m not talking about a real goat here so please stay with me! 🐐 So, warriors what does an actual goat have to do with this week’s post? I thought about that for a bit and realized how hilarious it would be to use a REAL goat instead of my original idea. Am sure you’ve all heard this expression by now of #GOAT. If you haven’t, it stands for the“Greatest of All Time.” Some athletes have even uttered (or should I say uddered!) πŸ˜‰it about themselves or use with their twitter handle. My original idea involving pro-wrestlers was to list so many names- mostly from my generation on a huge piece of paper. I still will make that list in this post but an actual pic of a goat made me laugh! It’s great to have humor…

The Greatest of All Time is such a huge concept to even consider. We only seem to mention this with sports for some reasons. If it does apply to other interests, let me know! Do we say we’re the greatest parent of all time? No, because none of us parents are. How about other professions like teaching? I never said that about myself and never will. Does anyone say they’re the greatest driver of all time? Cook? Dancer? How about writer? ( wink, wink!) ~~ Sub any words of your choice. Maybe some use that expression but most don’t. Why is it just for athletes? Even movie stars or other famous people don’t refer to #GOAT.

After the horrific helicopter crash ending the life of Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and several othersπŸ’”, my son had a conversation with me and his Dad. He was deeply affected by this tragedy. Of course, Kobe and his very exceptional life achievements were all over the news. My son asked if Kobe would be considered a #GOAT. So interesting to answer considering his remarkable career. My answer to him was that I believe it to be generational. I know this is how it comes across with other sports and not just basketball. πŸ€

There is so much to factor in with the equation of being a #GOAT. Sure, some use it as an ego boost and in many ways, that does help. Some use it too much in an unhealthy way where humility is forgotten. Kobe Bryant had tremendous respect for others in his sport before him that set such precedents. For his generation, yes he would be a #GOAT but overall, no. I bet he’d agree. You might not and that’s fine. I mean absolutely no disrespect to him at all.

Just because someone is your favorite athlete, would that make them a #GOAT? Nope, that’s just your opinion and you can have one. For women, it is a little different considering they haven’t participated in professional sports as long as men so the generation gap will be closer together. It’s similar to someone getting inducted into a Hall of Fame. Popularity isn’t the only factor. It’s quite an arduous process. Maybe some of you think I’d be extremely biased and choose the Ultimate Warrior as a #GOAT. I would not. There are those that will agree but there are those that won’t. Lots factor in. Warrior didn’t even truly want a title belt much so being a #GOAT would not be part of his mindset. Realistically, it shouldn’t even be a hashtag or part of social media at all. It certainly does spark conversations though that never seem to end.

Brother Love of WWE fame is quoted as saying at the time of the steel cage match between “Macho King” Randy Savage and the Ultimate Warrior that the Macho King is “the Greatest World Wrestling Federation Heavyweight Champion of all time past, present, and future.” That was in 1991. I know Randy and Warrior were close but is Randy a #GOAT? BTW– that steel cage match is mentioned in my book Spirit and Belief as “Me Next!”

Hulk Hogan started a whole new generation of entertainment with his All-American look which skyrocketed to mainstream culture. Is he a #GOAT? Well, Mean Gene Okerlund stated that before Hulk’s WMVI interview. Some could say definitely yes but again generations play a significant role. One cannot even compare yesteryear’s “technical” wrestlers to today’s “entertaining” performers. The #GOAT’s will always be there and we all have a say.

Well, here’s my list I mentioned from the beginning so keep in mind many others. Again, my generation as you will all have yours…

*** Possible #GOAT’s? ( am not listing Tag Teams or women)

* Hulk Hogan, *”Macho Man” Randy Savage, πŸ’™Ultimate Warrior, Andre the Giant, Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Honky Tonk Man, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, *Undertaker, *Nature Boy” Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Sting, Shawn Michaels, Ravishing” Rick Rude, “The British BulldogDavey Boy Smith ( HOF this year!) “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson, and John Cena.

*** I tried to list a few more than just the 80’s! You can add others as I trimmed this list! ~~Notice how I * the Undertaker for those who have heard my stories! U.W. gets a πŸ’™not an *. Also, you can’t compare Hulk’s generation to that of John Cena’s.

P.S. Whoever your #GOAT is, I’m kinda fond of the REAL goat up above. They’ve always been my favorite on a farm or petting zoo! They’re so animated and entertainers “of All Time!”

~~~ Personally, Warrior will always be my #GOAT for many reasons. πŸ’™πŸ˜‰πŸ™πŸ»

Exuberance of Energy πŸ’ͺ🏻

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. πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’™

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…)
