According to the Dagra Culture, a West African form of Shamanism, the last digit of your birth year determines what element you are connected to. We have all of the elements in us; your birth year determines which is your primary. When you identify what element you are, it helps you understand yourself better. We are born with all of the elements in us and we move into all of them during different stages of our lives. Discovering your primary element helps you know when you are in or out of alignment and it also helps you become more patient with others in your life by better understanding them. People are not only reflected by the elements, but years are too! The year 2017 is going to be a Fire year. Fire for a culture can mean major transformation. Our human culture is being ignited to accelerate, change and transform. The interesting thing is, according to the ancient Hebrew Calendar, we just entered into the year 5777, TRIPLE FIRE!
If the last digit of your birth year ends in 0 or 5, such at 1990 or 1995, you are a member of the Earth Clan. Earth people are the caretakers. Earth is nourishment, support, comfort, and the feeling of inclusion. Earth loves to give and gives abundantly, but out of alignment earth can give too much, not take care of themselves or feel ungrounded.
If your birth year ends in a 1 or a 6, such as 1991 or 1996, you are a member of the Water Clan. Water people are very calming and see the world in possibilities. The water person thinks of community, relationship, love and harmony. A water person wants things to work for the greatest good. Water is also grief, reconciliation and can become a tsunami.
If your birth year ends in 2 – 7, such as 1992 or 1997, you are a member of the Fire Clan. Fire people have a deep connection to ancestors and spirit. The Fire person is the gatekeeper to the spirit world and can understand and interpret dream imagery. Fire people live in the future and find the other clans frustrating because they don’t see what Fire people see. They can be impatient, hyperactive and not sit still very well. Fire is also about transformation.
If your birth year ends in 3 – 8, such as 1993 or 1998, you are a member of the Nature Clan. Nature people challenge us to be real, to be ourselves. They challenge us to drop our masks because they can see who we really are. Nature people love to play and they are also great at manifesting. When they set their minds to something, when they are in alignment, they can do anything. Out of alignment, they can get caught up in drama.
If your birth year ends in 4 – 9, such as 1994 or 1999, you are a member of the Mineral Clan. Mineral People are storytellers, the keeper of the records, and they remember our purpose in this life. They have a bone knowing and when they are not in touch with their bone knowing (out of alignment) they will often search outside of themselves to find purpose.
The world will be on FIRE coming into the year 2017. Fire is also the state that our ancestors are in. It’s an extraordinary time for healing your ancestral/family lineage. There is a huge calling for it right now, especially in a triple fire year, according to the ancient Hebrew calendar. When you notice unhealthy patterns in your family, this is the time to heal your lineage seven generations back and seven generations forward! I studied with Shaman in Peru and they taught me techniques to sever those unhealthy patterns. This is the time to heal your family!
