Even Warriors Need Help

Do any of you warriors ask for help when needed? I guess it really depends on your situation but if you’re anything like me, it’s a challenge. Sometimes even an ultimate one. Warrior was also like that as he too didn’t want help in many areas of his life. That photo above is part of his WCW run but he references ideas in the Ultimate Collection DVD. He had some possible storylines involving his character then but actually admits: “I couldn’t do it all by myself.” Most might’ve thought he never bothered listening or working well with others but there were occasions when that wasn’t true.

In his professional days after wrestling, he even made a YouTube video asking anyone for help with his website and content design. He asked for resumes online! I was so surprised by that but very grateful to know Steve Wilton came aboard. We are all stubborn but that’s o.k. I usually exhaust all my resources before agreeing to any help. Asking for help is sometimes looked upon as a weakness when it truly isn’t.

When it comes to my website, I try as much as I can before contacting the publisher. It is my independent nature and once something gets accomplished, confidence matters. ***My kids are rarely sick but I’m not one of those mothers that calls the doctor over every little thing. If you do, that’s fine. After all, we hate to see them sick for long. I try my best first and she’s even complimented me on that. Guess sometimes I can rock this mom thing!

I remember when my daughter was learning to ride her bike. I bet some of you that are parents can relate if your kids are past that stage. She only wanted Daddy (of course) and then decided no more help was needed. Oh boy, was that ever a scene! I had a book I was reading at the time so found a spot while trying to distract myself from her antics. We have a really long driveway so she had plenty of room but no sidewalks nearby. She kicked that bike and yelled and screamed. I really thought she was going to pick it up and throw it! Well, she calmed down and did learn to ride after much trying without any more help.

She is quite the Gemini warrior girl still but her Mama is the Virgo warrior. We are very similar in that regard. My son was so much the opposite but now with age, independence kicks in. As parents, we still want to help but they do need to find their own way. We are quick to swoop in when they are little but then there’s that time to back off some. Becoming an independent adult is tricky but necessary for growth.

Us adults need help with some areas of our lives despite kids thinking we don’t. They also probably think learning stops when school eventually does. Nope, not that either. We should be life-long learners and ask for help along this journey. I know for me spiritually, at first never did I ask for help. Never. I didn’t think that was feasibly possible. Sure, we might be very vague with our questions but I had no idea those in Spirit really and truly HELP specifically. I have said before that I never invoked Warrior at all. Again, I was doing things that aligned with his areas of expertise but humility became such a factor.

It is a very different story now as I know the signs and can respond. No, I am not filled with constant expectations nor am I desperate. Our traits remain the same and I have never wavered. Alright, sometimes a compromise is needed but your thoughts do influence your actions.

Think of areas in your life where help is necessary. Maybe not but two heads are better than one, right? I can attest to that! It never means you can’t do something but just with a little inspiration, you can and will do it better. I know this is very true for me. I am certain it will be true for you too. There are topics I won’t compromise on so then that leads down a slightly different road. So what? Life is that journey with many gorilla slams!!

Ask for help when you need to warriors. Am sure you’ll get it in the best way possible. Maybe not what you expect but accept it anyway. Perhaps one day you can return the favor and help another thru their ultimate journey… ⚡️✨

The Magazine Maze

It’s week #2 of yet ANOTHER dream connecting Warrior to something in my life. This time it wasn’t teaching in the past but concerns the now in my present.

My spiritual group Harmonic Journeys hosts many events at the director’s home. How would her home involve Warrior? Let’s begin….

In this dream, I was arriving at HJ to attend a meeting. I am in a book club but no idea what event led me there that night. She has many things and I have gone for other classes sometimes. Her house was much larger and more suited to be a mansion instead of the historic charmer it truly is. Upon arriving, I saw many rooms all packed with people. She does want to expand but this space was filled!

For some reason, it became quite a labyrinth or maze leading me from one room to the next. I recognized a few people but never uttered a word to any. Some rooms were filled with laughter, food, talking, and other spiritual sessions. One room was silent as many sat in a circle meditating to soft music. The kitchen was smaller than most areas and I saw my director along with the facilitator of our book club. Their backs were to me but I continued on. No idea really if I was lost or just curious. Nobody ever greeted me but I made my way downstairs to the basement. That is when everything changed.

The basement reminded me so much of my aunt and uncle’s house as they have both passed now. What a great similarity as I was filled with such nostalgia. They were so many activities going on down there as that seemed to be the busiest area. The difference was that I saw kids- lots of them. My aunt and uncle’s house had a playroom for their many kids so this scene brought me happiness. I used to teach kids so it was very fitting.

I looked around and loved seeing all of the wonderful closeness experienced by this group downstairs. While making my way around the room, I saw some children seated around a table. There were adults nearby but these kids were well entertained. Such a different atmosphere than upstairs which seemed more structured with meetings. The basement was more of a big party setting as adults and youth interacted. The table contained books, puzzles, and games. It was then that I noticed something out of place and yet familiar…

That magazine you see above was placed on this table with all the kid stuff! I just stared at it like with another magazine in the grocery store years ago. That was in 1993, blogged about and mentioned in my book Spirit and Belief. So coincidental having a dream relevant to some life moments with Warrior. I’ve talked about other magazines before like The History Term Paper and also buying one in 1996 upon Warrior’s Wrestlemania XII return. How in the world is a magazine on this table from 1998? So many questions yet again. Did someone’s Dad bring it as a fun memory? How can this involve me being here?

After staring forever and looking around, a little boy said : “You can have that if you want.” Um—, WHAT? I told him how it belonged to someone else so am sure I couldn’t take it. He didn’t seem to care about my answer and said it was mine to have as nobody claimed it. Still no idea how it got there… 🤔 Well, it was then I woke up without ever really knowing if I took the magazine or not.

Warrior didn’t fully enjoy his WCW run but I’ve never had a reference with that so why not? After all, dreams are what we make them to be. It wasn’t that hard to figure out after a time. This dream was combining my past with my present. Warrior and my spiritual group together in the NOW. Or should I say O.W.N.? ( for all you Warrior fans!) He was in my past just like teaching kids but he’s also part of my present life. Always some humor or confusion and yet a lesson to look at. To get a message saying it was O.K. made me know it truly is. My Magazine Maze led me where I needed to be all along. 💙🙏🏻🏠😉

P.S. The Ultimate Warrior appeared on a few Nov. wrestling magazine covers. While thinking of this post a few weeks ago, I had started dinner. I turned on the radio and heard: “November Rain” by Guns N’Roses. Gotta always love my Nov. references!! I also heard “The Warrior” by Scandal shortly afterward. Earlier that day, I had also found a blue jay feather. My sign from Warrior… A 3 count for the WIN!

P.P.S. It’s also my Book Club tonight at HJ! 😄
