4 Steps To Solving Problems

In this recent recording from a retreat in Moscow, Almine goes into how to solve problems. She discusses:

  • How do you scan your day?
  • Working with the high points and the low points of your day
  • Going through a problem in 4 steps
  • A personal story from Almine on a solution where everyone benefits

This is a recording made with a handheld recorder during a Russian speaking retreat. As such there is also a Russian translation that is part of this audio. However, we thought that the information was good enough to share in it’s raw format.

Listen to the full session of over an hour worth of questions and answers in August on I Am Presence: www.Iampresence.com

Heartwarming Letters from Eastern Ukraine

Almine contacted Sergey to inquire about the safety and comfort of our lightfamily of students in the Ukraine during recent political upheavals: did they have food, were they safe, etc? Instead of asking for anything, the students replied with many thanks to Almine for her presence in their lives. Today we want to share these very heartwarming responses and also want to thank you for your help in the last few weeks in meditation and ceremony.

From Olga Afanaseva
Sweet, dear Almine! We are very grateful for all that you give to us, for all that you bring into our lives, and just for the fact that you are. I write “we” because I am sure that everyone who is familiar with your work even just a little will agree. We love you very much!!!! From myself I want to express to you my deepest RESPECT and sincere LOVE, and all of this with deep GRATITUDE for all of the grandiose changes in my life and in me. You inspired me to brave deeds, which I doubtfully would have done if I was the same as I was a few years ago. Realizing that there are no mistakes, that everything is just the way it is supposed to be, I stopped worrying that I will do something wrong and have started to just enjoy life. Every minute, every second is just amazingly wonderful!!! I thank the Universe and you for this PEACE, which we have now. Today at the market I heard the phrase, “On the map you can see that the city of Stakhanov is now in the war zone, but there is PEACE in Stakhanov!!!” This phrase was said by many! We have a peaceful sky above us, and I believe that it will continue. Thank you for praying for us. With great LOVE and RESPECT

From Margarita Gaydenkova
Good day! My name is Margarita. I live, work, am joyful, get upset, I do yoga, I am raising my son, etc. in the small city of Stakhanov. This is in the southwest of Ukraine, in the region of Donbass. And as you already know, war is raging around us. At the present moment, we are like an oasis in the middle of a burning hot, barren desert. We have Peace. We are grateful for these peaceful days to God and to all of the people that pray for us. To speak the truth, we could have left a long time ago, or fallen into depression and panic. But doing yoga, and all of the knowledge that Svetlana gives us does not allow us to relax or let up, it drowns out the feeling of danger and fear. And the information that Almine is supporting us, and people who don’t even know us are wishing us happiness, gives us joy and optimism. Huge thanks to you for your sincere desire to help, inspire, support.

From Elena Bershak
My name is Elena Bershak. I live in the Lugansk region, in the city of Stakhanov. It is psychologically very difficult to be in our region now, as battles are raging very near, many people are in panic and trying to leave the city. Even in my family I have difficulty maintaining peace, because destructive information comes from everywhere. On my part, I am very grateful to Almine and all of the Light workers for their help. I can very much feel this support, and a confidence reigns in my soul, that everything will be fine, that Higher powers support us! With a sense of deep gratitude, Elena.

From Elena Melnikova
I sincerely want to thank Almine for her support and help in this difficult time. My daughter and I, also my parents, felt a surge of peace and confidence, a feeling of security has appeared. Thank to your help, the atmosphere in our city is quiet and peaceful. My fears and limitations, that have plagued me my whole life, have even started to dissipate, and finally, I am starting to, slowly, with tiny steps, step by step, live the way I want to, and to breathe with my whole chest. Our family has started to have more mutual understanding, harmony and support. the main thing is that the sky is peaceful over our city. I had headaches, but now I have a feeling of joy and happiness, we all are absolutely confident that everything will turn out just fine for us, our mood is happy like in summer. I feel with my skin that like layers of closedness, shyness and unwholeness are peeling off. We are indescribably joyful to have the honor of participating in the ceremony of Blessing.

The Spiritual Warrior’s Code

In this audio Almine explains about the difficult subject of throwing out your truths out of the window, spinning on a dime and changing in fluidity. Also, how does on deal with overwhelming odds? This is a golden oldie that you might have heard before from Almine, but it is great to listen to again. The spiritual warrior’s concepts are a key component of the art of balanced shamanism. As such we wanted to share this recording because 2 of Almine’s upcoming retreats will be her Shamanic Men’s and Shamanic Women’s retreats.

“Through ages of existence of cycles of life and death and ascension, there are those great lights on Earth who have felt the deep anguish of knowing this reality of man is not their own – that a higher reality beckons” ~ Almine about her Shamanic retreats

Satchevispata: 7 Wheels of Peace

Satchevispata wheels

Satchevispata – Blessing Your Home by Making it into a Sacred Space
Satchevispata is the method of healing, purifying and safeguarding the sanctity of your home and property. It can be done for others or yourself. The sacred ceremony can be performed in a small area of battlefields, or wherever trauma has taken place.

Download these 7 wheels here.


Important Note: 
The seven wheels of peace are a part of Satchevispata practice. The complete user guide for this practice will become available on iampresence.com from Friday July 25th and onwards. I Am Presence is a paid subscription blog. If you wish to join to find the complete user guide, please visit for July, here.

​These seven power wheels that are part of the practice ​​are Almine’s gift to you. For a general idea on how to use these wheels and all other wheels by Almine, please listen to this audio and read the accompanying text.

Question: How do I work with Wheels?
Answer: A wheel is a visual image that conveys non-cognitive, sacred and empowering information. They are similar to gateways through which specific healing frequencies are drawn and are power sources in the same way a holy object would be.

The wheels are alive and as we work with them they provide us with deep insights into the vastness and wealth of our own being, reminding us of all that we are.

Each wheel is a stand-alone wheel and can be used by itself. When wheels are used in a sequence, they tell a story and combine to make an equation.

Mystical practices have a beginning and a closure. If you are working with a sequence of wheels, do not stop in the middle as it leaks resources and energy. For this reason it is important that you always complete each sequence.

To access the information contained within the wheels at a deeper level you may place your hands on the wheels or run your hand across them — the left hand is receptive and the right hand promotes understanding.

Lying down, you may also place a wheel at your feet and upon contemplating its meaning, bring it up through your body from your feet to the Lahun Chakra 10 inches above your head. If a wheel feels ‘stuck’ anywhere, continue to feel the quality of the wheel until it moves freely. If you are working with a sequence of wheels, ensure that the highest numbered wheel is at the bottom and the lowest numbered wheel is at the top. Work with one wheel at a time and fully integrate one before moving on to the next. As you do, also contemplate how the qualities of each wheel combine and complement the other wheels within the sequence.

Possible Uses for Wheels include:

Meditate on a wheel.
Place on the walls of a healing space, office or a room in which you spend a lot of time.
With intention they can be placed into the body or placed directly on the body.
Specific wheels can be placed under a healing table when working on someone or under a chair that you frequently sit on.
Create your own personal mandala that you carry with you.

Oneness is Unstable (The Functional & Dysfunctional Feminine)

In this 10 minute video Almine shares the startling revelation that there are flaws within the much sought after state of ‘Oneness’. She explains how the feminine can become totally dysfunctional and needy, and what a balanced, functional feminine actually looks like. We highly recommend this video. It’s part of Almine’s ‘Perpetual Alchemy‘ video discourse on I Am Presence this month. Enjoy!

A Critique of Almine’s Art


Art Critique of Almine’s Work by Dr. Ingrid Gardill, Art Historian and Co-author of Internationale Kunst Heute 2014

The works of the artist Almine have been described as “Paintings of Light”. Indeed, it seems as though the images are lit from behind. The fluid, abstract shapes therefore may be said to resemble stained glass windows, highly color-intensive yet translucent. This effect makes the images expressive, adding to them an inner luminosity. Almine plays with the dissolving form and composition of colors. Sometimes there are intricate, scale-like layers of monochromatic color, that unexpectedly collide with another contrasting color value, often revealed as great harmonious and balanced fields, encompassing the visual experience. The possible combinations seem endless.

Almine uses her photographs as a starting point, which she then digitally enhances. Through her art, she seeks to free her audience from their visual and mental limitations by presenting to us that which has been forgotten in the course of our ordinary lives: the language of the “dream body”, which exists beyond imagined boundaries. Therefore, her art is referred to as “precious windows into eternity”. Her unique visual language does, in fact, elude any rigid definition, allowing for a deeper perspective. The dance of the fluid forms with their translucent appearance and exciting color scheme, gives the observer the opportunity to delimit his previous experiential horizon, if he lets himself immerse into these intriguing Paintings of Light.

- Dr. Ingrid Gardill, Art Historian

Blessings for the Inner Child

Outer Child – Inner Child
In this ‘golden oldie’ from Almine’s archives she gives a blessing to 3.5 week old Jacob. This blessing is both beautiful to listen to and something you can share for your own inner child.

Although this blessing was a gift to this wee one, the pebble dropped into the pond still ripples out today and we are so very blessed to be able to hear these sacred words once again.

Whether your inner child needs to feel this loving welcome from Almine or not, just being a part of the emotion that fills the void will surely help us birth into the new reality.

Recently we shared another golden oldy here on the diary about celebrating humanity’s greatness. You can find that audio here.

Keep an eye out on IAmPresence.com where soon we will announce the possibility to access almost all of Almine’s 15 year long audio archive. Or, subscribe to the newsletter to be kept in the loop that way.
