A Documentary and DREAMS… πŸ’™πŸ€žπŸ»πŸ’ͺ🏻😴🦬

*** A day early once again as I have quite the busy time tomorrow!***

Warrior Fans- how are ya? I totally forgot to mention last week about some possible great news. Recently I was contacted by a reputable producer/ writer/director of Roaming Buffalo Films. He is in the process of working on a documentary about Warrior with A&E. He found my blog and wanted to explore more in regards to Warrior’s spiritual side. We had a wonderful conversation as he has met Dana, her girls, and Warrior’s mother. I am so completely humbled as he wants to show some different aspects of Warrior’s life and asked my opinion on several. I will definitely share more as this fascinating story develops! STAY TUNED!!! All waiting on WWE approval as well. Also, I totally connected this to my dream of a few years ago: “Wild Warrior Buffalo Woman” blogged 10/16/19. ~~~ I was involved in a documentary with Warrior about buffaloes. Can you connect those ultimate dots??? WOW…

Well, it’s hard to top that while thinking about today’s topic. πŸ€”When these most recent dreams happened, I told myself they wouldn’t be blogged. Probably because I’m going thru a lot emotionally, spiritually, and physically right now and anything from Warrior is so personal to me. I decided to share since that’s what I do plus wanting to educate you all. It’s never to brag or boast so I hope you don’t think that.

The first dream took place at a beach with Warrior, Dana, and myself. It was so simple with us three enjoying the sand, waves, and watching the sun in the distance. β˜€οΈπŸŒŠπŸ–We were laughing and splashing each other while in the water up to our knees. I don’t live near an ocean and neither did they but it was so incredible. No memory of much conversation but oh so fun just being there content without any cares. I’ve had a few with Dana so it’s extra special seeing them both together and me included. PLUS, she was also in the Buffalo dream mentioned earlier. Check it out… Humility wins again as dreams just come sometimes with little control on our part. Look for the beautiful messages in yours too.

The next one is something so obvious and I am very surprised it has never happened before. I was actually in an arena watching the Ultimate Warrior do his thing! Get this– he was with WCW for the dream as I recently just used two WCW pics of him on this blog. No clue who his opponent was but both men were outside the ring. I had a front row seat so could see all the action. Don’t know who won as that really wasn’t included. Just the fact that I was there meant everything. You better believe I was ultimately excited!!! I always thought that would’ve been my first dream ever because it makes sense but nope, not at all. At least I was finally at a match. I’ll take it even if not WWF. (WWE) (:

The last two involved more of my spiritual life and very poignant for me. Over the past year, I’ve had so many different symptoms and discussed some with my psychic post late last Dec. 2019. They have intensified and can be quite scary at times. I have had medical help and am still but I do believe some require a different kind of healing. Some days are better than others but it’s been a long battle. I know it’s leading me somewhere so been asking for lots of guidance. I AM a warrior and we always believe!

A few Sunday afternoons ago, I decided to take a nap. Those are part of my life more as I have these energy depleting days. Well, while napping I remember two dreams both with the same message. TWO.. That’s when we need to pay attention more and of course they involved Warrior or I wouldn’t be sharing.

The first one showed me as an Energy Healer. There are so many kinds of healing methods and guess I was very well known as a healer in that area. I was asked to come heal Warrior with my energy. Here’s the more interesting part. He was some kind of tribal King with his “subjects” gathered around. Quite regal. I know wrestling fans are thinking “King of the Ring” but it was more like “The Lion King.” Remember that post of mine? More Native really. This might sound crazy to some but we all do need healing in many ways-inside and out. I was overwhelmed to be asked but so wanted to use my gift to help him. We spent some time talking and my training as a healer benefitted his energy so he could eliminate lots of negativity. I know this topic isn’t for everyone but truly think about it. All of us have trauma, past experiences, and toxic stuff we need gone. We don’t always need traditional medicine either. I know I have healing abilities but still not quite sure how to use them. Warrior’s energy I will take in any form so it was an amazing dream.

The last dream involved this same topic. I was sitting on my bed when the phone rang. I thought it was my husband saying he was running late from work. It was not him. It was Warrior as I just listened. He says: “Hey, it’s just me. I have to tell you all about this Energy workshop I went to recently. It was so cool and I feel so much better... truly amazing and I couldn’t wait to tell you!” *** There was a little more with his words as he was so happy and laughing all at once. I never spoke, just listened. I do plan on seeing an Energy Healer soon as it totally connects for me.

Many years ago, I got a different kind of message thru a phone call about my father-in-law who was alive at the time. That one’s in my book Spirit and Belief. To receive messages thru the phone is indeed remarkable and Warrior’s messages, I don’t ignore.

So, a documentary and dreams for you this week. Take it all in as you wish but I believe in messages always. Warrior is with me and to have so many dreams lately means the world considering what I’m going thru right now. Thank you all for reading. Keep track of your OWN messages however they come. You might be surprised how they influence your life. Warrior’s energy, mine, yours, and everyone are all connected. Let’s all be storytellers, dreamers, and healers to keep his legacy moving onward. ⚑️πŸ”₯

The Pressure to Perform

Hey warriors… Have you ever felt pressured to perform in front of a crowd? Of course. All of us have at least a few times in our lives. Giving speeches in school, acting in plays, singing, dancing, and yes- even wrestlers like the Ultimate Warrior. Was your performance based on a requirement, want, or pressure from others? Perhaps it’s a combination of all those. The Ultimate Warrior felt that pressure as many of his former colleagues jumped “rings” from WWE to WCW back then. Yes, he was paid well for a short time period but still wanted to incorporate new ideas into their Nitro program. Such pressure indeed.

The pressure can be good although many times we view it as bad. Maybe it’s the word itself. Sometimes we may even feel like we are in a pressure cooker and our performance either pops or fizzles out. It is very different for those involved in fame but again, we always have choices. Just showing up and performing at life is our best with or without anyone else thinking so. We may have to do things we truly don’t want to so the pressure is upon us. It’s all in how we handle it even when making sacrifices.

Think about anytime in your life where you had to make a decision on how to handle pressure. I can think of many. It doesn’t have to be physically performing let’s say in front of an audience but maybe something different. Standing up to a bully can be pressure but not performing exactly. It could even be arguing your point of view against another even though you don’t want to hurt feelings. There will always be consequences despite the best efforts but our free will determines the outcome. One day perhaps you’ll look back and know that pressure made you perform and without it, you never would – at least not in the same way.

I do and love a lot of activities but sometimes feel the need to conform based on pressure from others or what they do. It happens to us all. We may conform but then we may not. Our job shouldn’t depend on it but in some cases it seems to. If you find yourself in that situation, look for the best and perform positively despite pressure. If you really can’t, you’ll know how it affects you and others.

Warrior felt the pressure of performing his character with how wrestling always was in regards to gimmicks and such. He may have caved to some storylines but resisted the pressure to do things always in the business way.

The same can be said for all of us only with differing aspects. None of us parents the exact same way and yet we feel pressure to perform like all the others. We don’t do anything like another but that word of pressure always remains. How we perform under it is the main event.

Many times did I find myself caving to pressure to please or simply just to get it over with. I may still as some situations aren’t worth the fight as much but when it truly counts, I don’t cave. It is so much harder to withstand that pressure but your performance will be worth it. At least I hope it is for you. The easy road isn’t always the better one and you will be stronger for having that courage under pressure.

Some people like how Warrior was caved under pressure to prove to themselves mostly that they will follow thru. Not everything has to be a battle but if it is, win it the best even if under pressure to do so. Once he stepped away from that performing, pressure still remained for him but in new opportunities. He would always say striving to be more creative kept him going. While continuing to motivate or inspire others, his performance became less about the physical and more about the mental.

Our performances in life will sometimes fail or sometimes get standing ovations. Even if you don’t hear “BRAVO!” (not Dino, wrestling fans…) or see a sign cheering you on, know your pressure doesn’t have to be so big. Doing your best with what you’ve got is good enough to earn respect and should. We don’t need a wrestling arena, T.V. set, or movie screen to know performers as they are around us everyday. It’s in you, me, and everyone you meet. There will always be pressure in every area of your life but perform to be happy and the rest will come. If you are loving who you are and what you do, others will give that BRAVO or anything deserving.

We owe it to ourselves not to let the pressure of performing take over lest we lose why we are really us. Receive all that life has to offer but take the pressure off sometimes. Let’s just be performers enjoying our lives because they are ours to OWN. You are a warrior just like me. Be gentle with yourself, we need that more. πŸ’œπŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ’™

Be Spontaneous warriors

*** This post is a few days early as I have some other important matters coming up…

Are you spontaneous warriors or are you more of a planner? Perhaps you are both. I’m always about a balance but am sure you know your traits by now. I myself am more of a planner like Warrior was ( and still is!) but spontaneity sneaks in too sometimes. Some feel being spontaneous is ultimately freeing while to some it feels like all will go wrong. Hmmm, which is it?

I’ll share a few little positives about being spontaneous. This story is in my book Spirit and Belief and I did blog it a few years back. It’s a perfect example so I’ll abbreviate just a little. Back in 2016, many dreams started coming and one was about Warrior’s wife Dana. I decided on a whim to contact her on the website and did right before a yoga class. When I returned, an email was waiting for me in my inbox from Dana! I was floored and totally stunned. Am sure she wouldn’t do this today.

That printed email sits proudly on my dresser where I can read it everyday. That was being spontaneous with a great result. O.K., maybe not totally but I did it without any expectations at all.

Even though much of pro-wrestling is scripted, some things of course are not. They never know what the crowd will say or do. The athletes in the ring may respond or maybe they won’t. When The Ultimate Warrior insulted Hulk Hogan on an episode of WCW’s Nitro back in August 1998, spontaneity brought much fun. At least it was for me. Warrior began a speech and the crowd started chanting: “Hogan Sucks!” many times. He silenced them by raising his hand and saying: “Let’s talk about something he doesn’t know!” To think some people didn’t see Warrior’s funny side. I did and it worked.

We do need both and even if a spontaneous action doesn’t work, at least you can say you went for it anyway. You can’t always fully plan everything and we need the unexpected moments too. That WCW episode also had Warrior referencing the man behind Hogan as his “barber.” It was Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake but I didn’t know then. He later became “The Disciple” as part of the NWO storyline involving Warrior. No idea if they all knew Warrior was planning that comment but it’s a reaction that becomes spontaneous. Those responses can lead to much humor.

Can you think of a spontaneous moment in your life that worked? I bet you can if you try hard enough. Just because it might’ve failed, keep that spontaneity since it helps us stay balanced. Some life decisions have to be carefully thought out and planned as am sure you know. We can’t just run around amuck without any direction or guidance. Warrior referenced this as Eric Bischoff wanted the WCW to be spontaneous but it wasn’t working too well. Nowadays, no one can even just crash at a hotel for the night before making a reservation ahead of time.

If we’re too cautious, opportunities may pass us by but if we plan everything, the fun goes away. I’m not saying to take too many leaps of faith here but just small ones on occasion. If I never would’ve agreed to be set up on a blind date with my husband, we may never have met. The same can be said about Dana meeting Warrior. Sure, she wanted to get her resume out there but wasn’t intimidated by him and took that chance at his gym. These encounters might have bombed for both of us but they didn’t. Even if they did, I would never abandon taking a chance with spontaneity and am sure Dana wouldn’t either.

It’s all in your mindset warriors. Some decisions can’t be undone and may have bad results because of spontaneity. Those are lessons learned which make us stronger for the next time. As warriors, it can be a challenge since we get fixated on how it needs to be. It isn’t all or nothing even though it may seem that way,

Warrior was an extreme person and planned many aspects on how he wanted his life to go. There were “bumps” along the way but there were also moments of spontaneity– rare as it was. I wanted to find some old WWF bloopers with him but couldn’t find any! Sure, there are plenty of videos out there that are extremely funny but very few moments with him. Some former wrestlers have discussed his humor so it does exist! If anyone has some, let me know since I’d love to see them. Dana has also mentioned his silliness so I always loved hearing those stories as well.

Be spontaneous warriors even just sometimes. You’ll have good antics to share and it’ll bring out your funny side. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜œ We need planning but the fun needs to be part of that tag team too! Warrior has given me some funny spontaneous moments as a spirit and he knows my humor by now. Find that balance to work for you warriors and always believe in spontaneity. Just not ALL the time… πŸ˜‰

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… πŸ€” 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. πŸ’™πŸ™πŸ»πŸ πŸ˜‰

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! πŸ˜„
