Question: When does service of the heart turn into exploitation? Define what you mean by exploitation …
Almine’s Answer: Using my health challenges as a self -promoting opportunity
Example 1: Even though I’ve intermingled her teachings with my own and fleetingly acknowledged Almine as ” one of my teachers,” I see her incapacity as an opportunity to get you all on my radio show so we can all stand together to “fix dear Almine”. People remember my name!
Example 2: I fleetingly mention Almine’s name in connection with a product of her material, but when you click on it, it leads you straight to my website and a description of me. In this way , when someone googles her name, they’ll learn about me.
There are many more examples of people ” channeling ” and using my teachings because its a word that sells their services. Some who attended ONE class are now life coaches. Others who made friends within the Lightfamily are now using these contacts to sell some other obsolete modality that they claim as their own.
Note: Bear in mind that throughout the years Almine has gone without a salary and labored long and hard to build up search engine optimization and a global student base … The estimated cost of that to date is well over a million hard-earned dollars.

As I sit hear reading this post I’m feeling real genuine anger rising in my blood and I’m not apologizing for it either! Since when does Almine need “fixing” ? It sounds like someone is “near-sighted” and still doesn’t have a clue that the Infinite makes no mistakes and that there is a higher reason & purpose for all things! Some folks may like stale bread, but the faithful prefer theirs FRESH and we’re not interested in following any self-serving false prophets or hitch-hikers! We have First Class tickets with Almine and those with egos can fly in coach. When the waves get high we’re not abandoning ship like rats, we just rise above the waves or allow them to carry us high above the storm. Do you know what a parasite is? Are you aware the Hummingbird catches a ride on the back of the larger birds … he’s a hitch-hiker. There are those who are able to fly on their own and then there are those who are too weak to make the flight by themselves and have no clue to how to navigate or read a Map … and guess what … now their map is out-of-date on top of everything else. The thief likes to operate when darkness falls, but when the lights come on all will see his handiwork. Well, I feel “all better” now that I have vented some of my anger! Make no mistake the Phoenix shall rise from the ashes!
Once the anger subsides, we can see that this too is the Infinite One playing the role of the many to show us what needs to be revealed next…there are no saints or devils… only the One Life revealing its grandeur for all to see… Almine has created these mirrors to see what is next in the unfolding truth of her journey…mirrors are always hostile to the One revealing the truth… may we work together with her in our own lives as each one of us has the power to align with Infinite Intent. These are the teachings that Almine has gifted us. Blessings to all.

Thank you Anna.
I Feel this like a roar resonating through my being 🙂 Yyyyyyaaaaaasssss. along with the previous post on topics of the silent retreat, these posts are helping me realize what my intuition has been trying to tell me. “Aint nothin’ like the real thing, baby.”:-)
Today I was guided to examine that which needs to be dealt within and without and I received the tool how to deal with that. What needs to be balanced is the following:
Nurturing of self through introspection
Personal goals through the nurturing community
The best way to address is to ask “self” the question: What game am I playing?
Other wise the illusion is playing the game on us, where we would be playing the role of an immature warrior.
So, I ask myself the question. What game am I playing. The answer I felt was that I was playing the game of being incapable. It helped me to realized that this is not really true about me, it is an illusion. From this realizations I was guided to come up with examples or list of examples of what I am capable of. And I was surprised with how many examples I came up with. It certainly helped me, and that is why I’m sharing this. This allowed me to support myself by giving to myself. As I become stronger by nurturing myself, the whole becomes stronger too and I can feel the strength of the whole in my self.
Awesome question Jana! “What game am I playing?” I have asked myself the question, gotten an answer, and I am making a list right now to dispel the illusion. Love it! And I second Dhani’s, “Amen Sister.”
