What is a Lexigram?
I first heard of the word Lexigram when I was reading the book Star Signs” by Linda Goodman. A Lexigram is similar to an Anagram, but different. A Lexigram decodes hidden messages in words or titles by putting together full sentences that convey a deeper meaning of the original word. It is a spiritual process. The word lexigram for example yields the following words: relax, mare, mail, rail, grim, am, ram, grime, me.
How do I lexigram?
Just like in an Anagram you find all possible the words contained in the original word, name or title. Write down each word or phrase that you can form from the original word, name or title. Then in the next step guided by your intuition, your Higher Self, put your words together “to form short phrases or sentences”. As you form your words and then sentences you will be surprised by the insights that come to light. Complete your final Lexigram(s) in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS and if necessary give it more meaning by adding lower case a, the or but. It is best to do so sparingly.
In the past I have tried to lexigram on a piece of paper by just writing down the words I could see. This time around I have created my own tiles, just like scrabble tiles. I used a font that gave my the tiles and then I printed them in MS Word and cut them out, glued them to old preprinted magnets and cut them out. Now I can rearrange the letters physically and this seems to help in finding new and interesting words. It is just like doing a puzzle, only I write down the words after I have found them by rearranging the letters. Also having the tiles lying around open on the table every time I walk by I find another combination I hadn’t thought of or seen before.
Are there Lexigram rules and what are they?
- 1. “If you lexigram a person’s name and it contains the word liar or the phrase he lies or she lies or any other such negative word, such as thief or steal and you do not have the letters N, O or T to cancel the negative meaning – he/she not a liar – then that person has a problem and needs to be made aware of it, so that they can learn to control their personal character flaw. If on the other hand the negative word can be cancelled by the letters N, O or T, then the person or word being lexigramed will have been accused of whatever the negative word implies, but is not guilty. The person or word is only guilty if the the word YES appears without the cancel power of the word NO or NOT”.
- 2. Each letter in the new word must come from the original word or name. You can use each original letter more than once for forming different words, but not in the same word, if the original word only contains that letter once. If the original word only contains one S you cannot lexigram a new word containing 2 letters S.
- 3. A word that contains all 5 vowels – a, e, i, o, u – cannot be lexigramed. It is best when at most 4 vowels are present, 3 or less vowels are better.
- 4. “The original word, name or phrase may not contain more than 15 different and separate letters. It ok for the same letter to occur more than once, then it will be only counted once – noon equals only 2 letters as both the N and the O occur twice” .
- 5. The reason for the previous two rules is that with a word or phrase containing all the vowels or more than 15 letters just about any word in the dictionary could be created and the Lexigram would not reveal anything valuable.
