I was listening to a lecture on Astrology the other day and the teacher mentioned a VERY interesting concept. She said there is a sort of Alchemy to our DNA. The culture we are born into and how we see ourselves in the cycles of the Earth is tied to the Telluric grid of the region we come from.
WATER (Awareness/Spirituality) ~ African cultures
EARTH (Health) ~ Native American cultures
FIRE (Emotion) ~ European cultures
AIR (Logic & Reason) ~ Asiatic cultures
- Create an ancestor altar & learn voodoo.
- They should also purchase nostalgic crystals and herbs, and eventually move to a climate conducive to where there DNA originates from.
- Native Americans, South/Central Americans, & Aboriginals
- Using Astrology or medicinal herbs like Peyote & Ayahuasca
- It is very important for Native Americans and Aboriginals to be connected with the land. It is said that the aboriginals of India’s Andaman Islands have died of heartbreak when moved away from their land. 1 in 10 deaths of Native Americans are alcohol related. Generational alcoholism was a direct result of colonization.
- participating in dramatic art and music
- European cultures tend to have passionate, strong emotions which can be used for both creation and destruction. Europeans have been conquering and colonizing everything from natural resources to foreign peoples for many millennia – but this emotional energy could be channeled into incredible art. Those with European ancestry should work to transmute these powerful emotions into beauty.
AIR (Logic & Reason)
- Doing Qi, martial arts, and breathing/meditation
- Asiatic cultures tend to operate through logic & reason, and are very skillful and patient in times of war. Alternatively, when living in a chaotic environment, they are prone to experiencing stress and depression. The leading cause of death in many Asian countries is suicide, something directly linked to mental health.
Our elemental nature, based on DNA, makes it essential for us to acknowledge our strengths and weaknesses and live our lives accordingly. When we become disconnected with our DNA, it creates ripples in the natural flow of the Universe. I find it interesting that most of these alchemical ties are each culture’s greatest strength as well as weakness. When there is a disconnect from spirituality, nature, logic/reason, and emotion respectively, problems arise. As above, so below.
