Final Tornado Showdown: Facing the Storm...

I've had tornado dreams my whole life. As a child, my mom told me that she had them too. Usually they were spaced out, but sometimes I would have them for several nights in a row.
Always, I would be standing in the kitchen of my childhood home. It has a fantastic view of the city and in the dream, I could see the clouds gathering and the tornadoes forming far off. I would know they were headed my way and it would launch me into a panic to gather important items and people, and head to safety in the basement.
They were always terrifying and typically coincided with general stress and a feeling of loss of control of various elements in my life.
Then one night, something changed.
I had the typical dream - standing in my kitchen. I could see the darkness of the clouds above the horizon and little twists of vorticular cloud were appearing all around me. I knew a tornado was imminent. But this time was different. I didn't run, even as I saw a monster of a twister touch down and head directly for me.
Strangely enough, I didn't even feel afraid. I was steadfast in my place, unflinching at the view. The tornado was moving fast and soon I was completely surrounded in swirling winds and lightning. I don't even remember the impact of the funnel as it slammed into me and the house, because it was gone as soon as it hit. It passed over me and was vanquished by will alone.
For the first time, I had faced the fear of imminent destruction - only to have it dissipate to nothingness. I remember being thrilled in the dream, but upon waking I felt the resounding effects as well. I felt stronger than ever before. I wish I could remember what was going on in my life at the time, that would coincide with such an event in the dream world.
I have since had perhaps a few tornado dreams. The twisters are always far in the distance and feel like more of an exciting possibility than a serious threat. They no longer approach me.
