I am resigning as Moderator of this forum. I feel that I have not contributed much over this last year, due to school and excessive homework.

I thank all of you for your patience and beliefs.

If there is a lexigram that is ultra-important to you and you need help, you can send me the info via a post here. I will be checking in periodically. Just make sure you add my name in the message line.

I understand where you're coming from. Just like we eliminated personal readings in Soul Unions, maybe we need to restrict personal name Lexies (just too much of a time burden on contributors). We should focus the Lexigram Forum on words and phrases instead. Any ideas?

Well, that's what I've been saying for the last year. It should be things that all can participate in, otherwise, how else will they ever learn? If it is a constant personal name requisition, the Moderator will carry the burden, but if it is words, phrases, etc, then all can participate.

I would have to agree with Randall and La-Tee-Da.

Lexigramming a name is a very personal matter, and in fact any lexigram is an individual task, all lexigrams are is an exercise in learing to communicate with your higher S-elf. The spiraling of the mind that leads to complexe prose formed by the re-alignment of the letters to reveal the hidden message is in fact a simple prop designed to open the paths of communication between the higher S-elf and the mind/soul/body temple. This is why lexigrams done of the same phrase or name may come out differently from two differetn people, they each are aware of different aspects. If you want to know more about yourS-elf, then the spiral must come from within, that which others tell you is just what they see, what you find for yourS-elf is what is true to you.

Altho I would give the word druids respect for seeding the lexi as well.

I don't think that name lexis should be eliminated. grayheart makes a good point about lexigrams and how there can be different depending on the person doing them. The thing that is of concern is that if someone is doing their own name they may put things there that they are not necessarily spiraling, rather their personal opinion of themself, if the opinion is bad...that's not helping anyone, least of all them. All that will do is re-inforce their negative thoughts of themselves. What about those people?
Also personally I haven't been able to get myself to do lexigrams. Logically I know how they are supposed to be done, but I can't get the vibe going; I would not have been able to have a lexi of my name if this forum excluded personal name lexigrams. There may be others out there in that position of needing help with that whole thing.
But on the other hand, I did not realize that personal name lexigrams were stopping other lexigrams from being done, because it seemed that many people who knew how to do lexis were helping out with all of the lexigrams.
I do appreciate the importance of doing mostly lexigrams of phrases and general words and I feel that that would ring truer to the forum purpose as I understand it to be.

Hi Silverbells

To quote grayheart (if I may )

The spiraling of the mind that leads to complexe prose formed by the re-alignment of the letters to reveal the hidden message is in fact a simple prop designed to open the paths of communication between the higher S-elf and the mind/soul/body temple.

This is how one reaches a true lexigram. By attaining wisdom from the higher s-elf spiraling into the uni-versal knowledge.The highers-elf DOES NOT hold negative thoughts about s-elf, ever! All comming from the ego/mind are anagrams not to be confused in any way with lexigrams.

Does that help any?

Silverbells......the list of name lexie requests, boyfriend-girlfriend requests, etc were mind-boggling!! If I lexied every name on my list, it would take me a good 6 months. In the mean time, the lexigrammer is exhausted from so much "listening" and the people coming to learn, are stymied because there are no lexi exercises to learn with. I think the really important name lexies should be addressed, but then again, how do you determine what is ultra-important?

Oh well, I guess what I am trying to say, is that lexie burn-out is a terrible thing!!

Dear La-Tee-Da, Thank you for your tremendous input, I will miss you. Even though I haven't contributed over several months, on looking back I couldnt keep up with all the names either. I felt that so many were asked on such a superficial level for what is a spiritual journey. My wonder is that you were able to do it for so long.
I sincerely wish you every success with your chosen career.
Love and Light, fuchela

Fuchela.....I, so totally, agree with you. I felt that alot of the requests were superficial and had my suspicions confirmed when I went on to lexi the names and posted the lexi and got a flippant response. It felt like little children playing games with a Ouija board....dabbling in something serious with no thoughts to the outcome or to the "drain" on the person doing the lexi.

Take care Fuchela and stay in touch!

Sorry I haven't been around, around for a little while.
I see.
I would be interested in doing lexigram exercises here when I am on an even keel energy-wise.

Greetings...

Sorry, I just have to add my two cents.

When I worked with Linda, we went to a Whole Health/New Age expo in California where Linda was to speak about Star Signs.

When she opened the floor to questions, she asked that they be GENERAL and in that way she thought that her replies would be more helpful and broad-reaching. I cannot tell you how many of the people that I brought the mike to asked purely personal questions. It was discouraging to be sure, Linda spent most of her time trying to re-direct the errant individuals.

I love Lexigrams, and find them a very useful tool for meditation, contemplation and exploration of the mysteries of the Universe. That being said...

I personally seldom, if ever, work a name Lexigram, unless the individual is of some major concern to the world at large. (such as Adolf Hitler, Abraham Lincoln, Jesus of Nazareth {Jesus Christ}, Mary Magdalene, etc.)

I think individual name Lexigrams are best left to the individual him/herself. This is only my opinion and may not be a popular one. It is for the same reason that I seldom look at personal horoscopes or individual Tarot spreads in any of the Forums... to do so does 2 things that are most certainly NOT beneficial:

1) It eats up vast amounts of the Interpreters time and energy. It would be impossible to Lexigram every name or personal request, there are not enough hours in a day for such an endeavor.

2) I think, as Nahtan used to say: (Star Signs, hardcover edition, p. 368) "Some Lexigrams must be solved by the Higher Self of each individual... You do not help people by doing all of their spiraling for them. No one becomes illuminated in this manner. They will see, and they will know, at the allotted time for each individual."

That having been said... Juniperb makes an excellent point about the Higher Self and it's messages being framed in the POSITIVE. Ego based and/or negative Lexigrams do not come from the Higher Self.

As always, this is only my opinion, and it may be an unpopular one at that, but I think it rings true to Linda's teaching; and is that not what this entire community is about?

I am all for HELPING, when one is stuck or stymied, but as Nahtan says, to do their spiraling for them benefits no one.

In the Light...

Aselzion, I think you make very valid points.

Perhaps we all need to practice more...and perhaps it would behoove us to do so here, with names of those who influence our lives, like George Bush, Tony Blair, etc. Just a thought.

Aselzion.......thank you for those words!!! It is what I have felt the entire time I was Moderator of this forum....a total drain. I felt like I had jumped on a treadmill and couldn't get off!!

The joy of this forum was at its highest point when we lexigrammed phrases and famous names. It became a drudgery when all the personal boyfriend-girlfriend requests started happening. I started to dislike coming here....the joy was gone. The Lexi-Bees were fun, as well. We shared and compared and grew.

I think this forum will continue to drag, until everyone works as a learning team....til the selfish is put behind and the sharing comes to the forefront!

I hope I didn't offend anyone, but I can only speak the truth and what is in my heart.

Dear LTD...

What can I say, I try to call them as I see them, in keeping with Linda's legacy.

I think we would all find more enlightenment and food for mental spiraling by sticking to Lexigrams of a more general/Universal nature, and then, if we so choose, to apply those same principles to our own names. But I think those are best kept to ourselves... other than that I tend to feel as though bandying about my name Lexigram would be nothing but pure EGO... what could you possibly gain or learn from the Lexigram of my name? And not to burst anyone's holy bubble, but I can pretty much speak from experience, Linda wouldn't spend overmuch time Lexigramming personal names unless they were of extreme importance in her personal life. Truth be told, she never wanted to write Love Signs, in her words, "Read about your Sun Sign and then read about B's Sun Sign (and Asc and Moon) from Sun Signs, and go from there!" I think her opinion of personal name Lexigrams would fall in that category.

To be perfectly frank, when I see thread titles such as "can you Lexie my name", I skip right over them... nothing personal, I'm just not that interested.

Speak your truth LTD, if you don't, no one will speak it for you!

Good Luck, and bright blessings...

Wise wise words A and LTD.

Now perhaps the veil has been lifted from the purpose behind Lexigrams and we can go forth to discover their truth and beauty in an egoless forum, devoted to the word druids, and their gift of knowledge found hidden in the themes of life.

Just a hope and opinion
