Saxcerpts

Hey there, welcome to my Saxcerpts, excerpts from my wanderings, practices, research and downloads.

Language

To me, language is becoming sacred and I am exploring this shift through these Saxcerpts. Language is a gift to us as a human species, so often taken for granted. But it is a magically powerful way to influence our vibrational fields. What we think matters. What we say matters. Our language matters.

Saxcerpts

Origin of Language - Alex Grey | Saxcerpts | Megan Sax blog | Yoga, Sound Healing, Mantra | Raise your vibrationsI’ve always enjoyed journalling and writing. My favorite classes during school were the ones that included reading deep philosophical, existential, historical materials and writing essays. Processing information in this way helped me to learn and helped me develop a relationship with language. For this reason, some of my Saxcerpts writings are on the more scientifically researched side of things where I am digging deeper into topics and looking for explanations. The wisdom of the Sahasrara (Crown) Chakra is that we have a right to know. As science is coming around to explain what energy workers have known for ages, it feels stimulating to this Chakra to “know” of this world through the scientific lens.

 

Journalling has also proven to be incredibly healing. It is a suggested technique in a variety of healing modalities. Story telling is powerful. Writing, in so many ways, helps me digest an experience and “eliminate” it from my own system through the powerful process of expressing it through language. My meditations have been becoming powerful and I have been receiving so many downloads and insights. Writing helps me to explore, analyze, learn, and grow from these experiences.

 

And finally, I’m choosing to share these Saxcerpts with you because I know I am not alone. My experiences are not unique to me, although with my unique spice to them. My own journey consisted of much independent reading and researching to help me to understand and find my path. I came across a variety of books and blogs that became “online teachers” who helped me grow through their own story sharing. I hope to support you in your journey. Maybe something of what I have experienced and the work I have done will spark something within you and empower your own inner exploration and healing.

I am so excited it’s February! We worked hard in January (theme words, obstacles, path development) and now I want to ride the stress-free wave of all the hard work put in to begin the Co-Creation process of 2018. Besides, February is Heart Health Month, which means heart-openers and Anahata meditations!   I find it highly intriguing that February is founded in a purification ritual and from this space we now associate it with the heart. A transformation that......

February is here. When we think of this month perhaps we think of the super bowl, leap year, the shortest month, and Valentines Day. But do you associate this month with purification rituals?    The Roman month Februarius was named after the Latin term februum, which means purification, via the purification ritual Februa held on February 15 (full moon) in the old lunar Roman calendar. – Wikipedia   I love the idea that this month is about purification. We’re coming ...

Last week we looked at the obstacles before us. I’ve been reminding myself as I review mine, that I have chosen them. With each intention/resolution that we place before us, we choose the associated challenges. It is our choice to grow in the ways that we invite in through the cultivation of our desires.   [serious-slider id=”226″]   Obstacles loom before me and I know that it manifesting isn’t instant. But instead of looking helplessly at......

Earlier this month I shared a powerful practice I began last year. I shifted my opinions toward resolutions to encompass the powerful concept of intentions. But setting our intentions isn’t enough to manifest them. We need to do the work. As we move forward into January, I encourage you to consider the obstacles that are before you. Review your intentions/resolutions/theme words, and consider what’s on your path.   Part of doing the manifesting work is identifying......

2018 was a wild year of vastly different energies woven around me creating a river of life to ride. In so many ways it felt bipolar … the ups were phenomenal that illuminated so much beauty, while the downs had me scraping at the ground like I had just found a new level of rock bottom. While I encountered a plethora of challenges and celebrated successes, there were a few ideas that helped propel me forward....

It’s that time of year where we are setting intentions and resolutions. Last year, I wanted to strengthen the energies surrounding this space. I extrapolated from my intentions and resolutions and chose “theme words” that encompassed them. Words like compassion and beauty emerged.  I created a Mala to remind me every day of my words and to help me choose the path that continued me on my journey. I felt this was a powerful practice......

The Winter Solstice is upon us. The term ‘solstice’ means ‘sun stands still’ and has been celebrated since the Neolithic Ages. We in the Northern Hemisphere are in a time of the longest nights and the sun the farthest away from our tilting planet’s celestial equator. For the ancients, spiritual and cultural traditions developed into a celebration of fire and light to welcome the returning sun. It marked a new cycle, a turning of the seasons......

Thoughts + Prayers = Useless   Last week I was scrolling through my Facebook feed in a mindless and uncommitted way. My friends’ profile caught my eye. Now, this particular friend is funny. I’ve known her since college and I associate her with humor so I was excited about what she had posted.  As I took action to zero in on her post, I saw some languidly outstretched cats that immediately made me yawn and......

Our brain waves are produced as electromagnetic frequency through the brains pulsations and vibrations. Varying brain-wave activity correlates with a specific spectrum of frequencies. We hear about these when studying the affects of meditation, binaural beats, and sound healing on the brain as well as in dreamstate studies. Here is a quick run-down of what each of the waves is and what they are associated with:   Beta Waves(14-20 Hz):  are found in our normal waking......

Visionary doctors and quantum physicists are now echoing what ancient civilizations once suggested: everything is vibration. In fact, many religions and spiritual paths have understandings that the world was created through sound. Here are a few examples of beliefs that the world was created through sound:   In the book of Genesis, from the Old Testament, one of the first statements is: “And God said, Let there be light.” In the Gospel according to John,......

The Equinox is upon us! The colors are starting to change and the air is taking on a brisker quality. This is a day that has been observed throughout the ages and across civilizations.

I remember it being a bit of a challenge and now there’s probably a whole slew of facts surrounding that old......

The astronomical event of the bi-annual equinox has been celebrated for eons of time. For ages, it was through the cycling of such events that time was marked and celebrated. Ancient cultures were in touch with these cycles and made accurate, circular calendars to record it. They built sacred structures that aligned with these solar cycles and have infused these days with their energies, making them powerful days.    The Autumnal Equinox is a moment of......
