The Element Of Earth
Toby Christensen, a prominent teacher and author on indigenous wisdom, introduces the “Dagara System™”, which recognizes five elements and their significance in our lives. The Elements are Earth, Fire, Water, Mineral, and Nature. In this system, the element of Earth holds a special place. This is where we start today.
Earth represents nurturing, abundance, welcoming, and home. It embodies the essence of being at home here on our planet, finding a sense of belonging, and feeling at home within ourselves. Just as a mother provides nourishment, support, comfort, and empowerment, Earth symbolizes these qualities.
The Aspects Of Earth
Located in the center of the medicine wheel between Fire and Water, Earth is associated with survival and healing. It emanates unconditional love and caring, embracing everyone without judgment and accepting each person’s unique qualities. In the presence of an Earth person, generosity abounds, and they find joy in giving abundantly.
If you were born in a year ending in 0 or 5, your birth element is Earth. People born in an Earth year often embody the role of community leaders. They understand the art of creating abundance and demonstrate it through their actions. They have a natural inclination to collect and stockpile resources, ensuring that the village has an ample supply of whatever it may need.
Charactoristics Of Those Born In An Earth Year
Hospitality is a characteristic trait of Earth people. When you enter their homes, you are greeted with warmth and grand gestures of welcome. They are nonjudgmental and strive to make others feel good, as it brings them joy. However, their dedication to the well-being of the community can sometimes come at the expense of their own self-care.
The color associated with Earth is golden yellow, radiating a sense of richness and warmth. The numeric values 0 and 5 hold special significance for Earth, representing the last digit of the years that mark the birth of individuals connected to this element.
Understanding & Embracing The Element Of Earth
Understanding and embracing the element of Earth can profoundly impact our lives. It teaches us to nurture ourselves and others, to create a sense of abundance, and to find our place within a community. By embodying the qualities of Earth, we can experience the fulfillment that comes from welcoming others, fostering generosity, and embracing the unconditional love that Earth offers.
In the vast tapestry of the universe, the elements play a vital role in shaping our existence. As we dance with these elements, we learn to navigate life’s challenges and embrace the wisdom they hold. Earth, with its nurturing embrace, reminds us that we are home, both on our planet and within ourselves.
