Ash salam, salam alei
Listen to this! I got done sending the “ONENESS” message out in a bulletin. After, I went up stairs to take a shower. Here comes the wild part. I began chanting, “Ash salam, salam alei, Ash salam, salam alei…” I was filled with joy and began chanting louder and louder throughout the house, “Ash salam, salam alei.” I’m getting chills just telling you.
My son shouted, “Dad what are you saying? What does it mean?” I said, “I don’t know Jordan, but when we get to work we will get on the computer and see if we can find out.”
I went into the office and began my research. “What did it mean?” I spelled it out as best I could and began to Google it. Several different meanings for the various words began to materialize. Ash translated to “oasis”. Salam rendered two results. The first possible translation was “peace” and the second was that it was “a sign”. Alei came up as “By the well.” Finally, I came across the “Cyclopedia of India”. I searched for the meaning of Ash first which translated to “My constituents.” Next, I entered “Salam” and realized it is often a type of greeting. Now the last part was a little tricky. “Salam” was repeated once again. I had a clear vision of how “Alei” should be spelt before I began my research. Therefore, it seemed logical to group these two words into a phrase. I shouted, “Oh my God! They are channeling through me.” (Chills like crazy!!!) Once they realized that I knew they were sending me messages they decided to formally introduce themselves. Here is what they said. “Ash salam, salam alei!” “My constituent’s greetings! The peace and mercy of God be with you all.”
