Question: Is “Om” equal to “Amen” and “I AM”?
Answer by Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels, given at a conference in Estonia 2019.
No, I will not say that it is. And the main reason is that the word amen has been used by Christians in such a way that they can’t be neutral about it. There are of course also some people in the East mostly Buddhists and Hindus, especially Hindus, who have created a certain overlay about the word Om. The reality here is that, a word in order to be effective, you have to give it in the most neutral frame of mind possible. That means you need to have as little mental or emotional overlay associated with that word as possible.
There’s so much overlay about the word amen, that I really would not even recommend that you try to chant that word as we do with the Om. In fact, you can use it as an ending prayer because it’s traditional, but I don’t recommend that you put much attention or emphasis on it. The word Om, is for many Westerners at least, more neutral and it is also more suited for chanting especially for taking in a very deep breath and letting it out over a long period of time. The I AM is not suited for chanting in the same way. You could use the word AM as you can chant that, but why not use Om unless you have as I said, some specific overlay associated with that word.
