“At this point Grandfather pulls me back into his realm, where I find myself shape-shifted into the storm itself.
“My intention had been to transfigure into Storm’s divinity-maybe I have and maybe I haven’t-but I can feel Storm Spirit’s energy and personality. Its power is dazzling, and I am moved by the beauty of its lightning and tornadic fingers. As part of the storm, I can feel an intense desire to contact the earth. I feel a sense of searching for where to touch ground, for those places where energy is lacking or where there is too much power locked up. I realize how the intense rains connect the storm to earth. I revel in the storm’s ecstasy of carrying out its purpose for being. At last I fully return to myself, still in Grandfather’s domain. As I thank him, he repeats, “All you can do is to honor…” “
