โ€œI Canโ€™t Go Anywhere!โ€

Congratulations!

Today is Your Day.

You’re off to Great Places!

You’re off and away!”

~~~“Oh, The Places You’ll Go.”

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

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

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

Let’s rewind several years back yet again…

I Can’t Go Anywhere

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

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

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

I Can’t Go Anywhere…

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

I Can’t Go Anywhere…

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

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

I Can’t Go Anywhere…

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

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

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

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

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

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

Virgo and Gemini, I Get It

As you can see warriors, this post is about these crazy birth signs of ours so am referencing those gentlemen in the photo. Vince McMahon was always off-limits for me as I am not examining his relationship with Warrior or any other business related professionals. I am however, going to share my involvement in this as it always connects to me.

Have you ever read your daily horoscope? Not horror– for all you skeptics! Have you ever read up on astrological birth traits? If you have, you might tell where this is headed but if not– let me help you out just a little. I’ve mentioned Warrior and my daughter sharing that Gemini sign many times but Vince and I share the Virgo one. No, I don’t go looking up people but happened to come across this information on twitter a few years ago.

All those Happy Birthday wishes for Mr. McMahon and oh, so sweet! Once I realized we both are Virgos, how do you think I reacted? “OMG, I can’t believe it, how super cool!” Nope– not mine at all. I just said to my phone: “I get it.” What does that even mean? I cried a little which sounds weird I know… I understand what it’s like to be a Virgo and while some traits are not me all the time, most are. You can look up your own but just know mine involves stubbornness, a good work ethic, organized, and emotional. The emotion part is not what it seems. WE CARE A LOT.

I’ve read some quotes from Mr. McMahon and he has said the relationships with some of the superstars back in the day was: “never just business for me.” Warrior and him had a very strong personal bond. Virgos like being in control and being right but our heart is out there. I would always blame Vince for everything bad that I didn’t like with um, you know who. After all, “don’t cross the Boss!” Right? He was the obvious target until fans knew more of the story.

Another interesting so-called “fact” is that Virgos and Geminis are a bad mix and don’t get along. Let’s see— I’ve got that girl/girl dynamic with my daughter, Vince and Warrior had the guy/guy dynamic so I guess that leaves me and Warrior with the girl/guy dynamic. We actually share some traits but I can see aspects of clashing too. I have said also that I didn’t always agree with Warrior’s views but never lost respect for him, never… Geminis are stubborn too and put their heart into what they do. Respecting authority was sometimes difficult for Warrior but again– he didn’t have that much in his past which is the WHY. Forget all the “specifics” of what people say about possible opposites. I can clash with my daughter too but we come together when it counts the most.

I do believe and Vince has said this too but he and Warrior were more alike than different. Intellectual yet creative. They fought passionately for what they believed in and I do too. This helped me understand Vince a little more also and not just from a business perspective. My daughter is passionate too and in fact had to look up info several years ago as I became perplexed with her behavior. I needed more and it was very clear to me as to why she reacted the way she did in some situations.

I realize this isn’t for everyone and I don’t follow astrology regularly but it does provide some insight and it did for me. Sure, it can be fun just to see how your day gets played out but don’t get too caught up as it isn’t healthy. At least I don’t think so.

We should always look to the good and not the bad. When most think of those guys in that photo, negative memories will surface. Isn’t that a shame? I actually want to remember the good they did together despite their differences at times. This photo, great memory. Clashing yes– for a while but like I have stated before as well, you gotta get to the WHY and HOW not just the WHAT. Most people don’t. Things are not always what we think or how they seem. To be without emotion means you don’t care and they both did—- so much.

My relationship with Warrior in spirit isn’t one of clashing at all but it’s different energy in that way. We have so much in common and more than I ever thought. Of course it has nothing to do with money, (my book a little!) a character, fame, or any of that but the spiritual heart of him is the same. I am glad he did walk away from WWE actually since the possibility of being away from his family would’ve hurt his spirit more. He proved he could do other things in his life.

Here’s one final note to add: When I was first going thru all this with Warrior in the beginning, I wanted to use one word to describe him. That’s impossible! I was tired of hearing intense, energetic, disciplined, and others. The perfect word popped in my head— ENIGMA.

That was before I had the book where Vince used that word too. I walked away from the page knowing great Virgo minds think alike! Mystique was another great one but enigma is Ultimate!

I have had other moments when something popped in my head before ever looking at the book… “A Life Lived Forever.” I would then read or see things after I had an intuitive moment. My abilities and Warrior energy hard at work! ๐Ÿค๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

P.S. Virgos= earth

Geminis= air

~~~ I think this is perfect since we always need both. ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’จ

~~~ I know Virgo is a “maiden” but maybe Vince would prefer an Earth reference as “protector” of the WWE!

โ€œDo You Want to go Play Some Games?โ€

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… ๐Ÿ˜œ 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… ๐Ÿ˜‰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???!!! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜† 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. ๐ŸŽฎ

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! ๐Ÿ˜ด
