As many of you have noticed our weather has been changing on its own. If we can believe a man who claims to have invented the internet, our planet is in trouble. Our recent category 5 Hurricanes and record numbers of tornadoes as well as record high temperatures would all seem to support a growing trend that could actually make me believe a politician could be right about the weather. Then again I am not used to trusting that sort of person and can take care of the weather with the help of my friends. Sorry did I forget to tell you I am a modern Shaman. I change the weather all the time, as long as it helps the people.
Last October I had an interview for a local paper in the Puget Sound area of North Western Washington and while chatting on the phone with the interviewer I told her that Hurricane Rita would be a category 5 at sea, 2 when it hit land and a 1 when it was over any cities. A week later that is exactly what happened. How do I do that you say, I ask the spirit of the weather to cooperate with me that’s how. You see in my world everything has a spirit. In your world too, sometimes you even notice it, ever had a car with a name? Did someone you know name their favorite tool? Boats often have names as well, I bet you have even talked to your car or boat asking it to cooperate with you at times.
To ask the spirit of the weather to cooperate with you is an easy thing. Now some folks will tell you that you need a blanket, music, blind fold and have to lay down. Those are the same people who claim to have invented remote viewing. What I am going to share with you in a simple way is what Shaman all over the world have done for 30,000 years or more. I learned this in a dream, and you don’t need any props to do it. Many of my students do this waiting in line at the grocery store or at the dentist office.
Take a deep breath or three and frame what kind of weather you want to ask for in your mind. Close your eyes or keep them open your call here. In your mind’s eye imagine that you are talking to the spirit of whatever weather you want in your area. Then ask them politely to change the weather to what you want it to be. Be specific about when and how this change should be, August 19th at 10:00 a.m. I would like no rain in Tacoma, WA. This should happen in a good way and last until 6:00 p.m. Usually I ask the Thunder Nation to give me a hand with this sort of thing, I see them as a storm cloud over the ocean or as a Native Warrior, and sometimes as a Thunderbird with lighting flashing from its eyes.
When I was new at this weather control ability I had a friend in Canada email me and ask for my help, here is a copy of her email:

Subject: Kelowna fires
Hi Shamanic friends:
My friend in Kelowna tells me they lost another 200 homes last night to fire. On a suggestion from her shaman in town (his name is Preben) I did a journey last night to help calm down the fire and the wind. It went well in my journey but all it did was change directions. At least that’s good it’s blowing east now away from the city but it’s still almost 75 km/hr in places and is fueled by the fire. I wonder if we all do a journey to calm the wind and fire if that will help?
What happened next was unthinkable to me. These other two folks are Shamanic Practioners and they said they would not be able to help because of the butterfly effect. Sorry wrong answer, Shaman are here to help the people. When people are losing their homes, I as a shaman should help if I can. In this case my friend had permission to ask for outside help from a local Shaman. These two wanna be’s couldn’t see past political correctness to do their duty as Shaman. I replied, sure I can help, we Natives have been changing the weather for thousands of years, if we had a charter it would be in there, Shaman change the weather for the good of the people and nature.
I did the exercise above, closed my eyes and saw a black storm cloud over the ocean. I called out to the Thunder Nation and asked them to have pity on these poor Canadians and put out the fire. They answered in my mind saying we can and will help in four days. I then had an idea that I should ask the spirit of the fire to have pity on these poor Canadians and stop burning down their homes. Behind me I felt heat, as though from a hot oven. I turned around and there was a large human made of black rock, he had orange cracks in the join areas that spit fire and smoldered. He sat down and I sat across from him. He said in my mind, “if you are brave enough I will do as you ask.” A shiver of fear ran down my spine, as this guy was about 8 feet tall and looked like he could break me in half with one hand. I looked at him closely and noticed he had what looked like a sword handle pointing towards me. A stray thought told me this was what he used to keep the fire going and spreading. On impulse I grabbed this handle and took his weapon away from him. He looked at me in a slightly disappointed way, as he didn’t get to break me in half, and walked away. I knew I had passed his bravery test. In four days there was a cloud burst over the area that put out the fire in 30 minutes. 10,000 Canadians were able to return to their homes.
