The Spiritual Journey’s office often receives requests for the use of Almine’s original work to create products and is responsible to approve every single product that you might want to create.
Here’s why: If a student requests to make a meditation based on a set of 96 Tones of Confidence, for example, this leaves only time for speaking and integrating the principles and no time for interpretation by the presenter. On the other hand, if someone wants to create a meditation on the pure emotions of Love, Praise and Gratitude, the answer from our office would be “no” due to the amount of time available for interpretation by the presenter.
Further comment from Jan:
When I recently contacted a student as to why she was posting Almine’s stand-alone work on her Facebook page while adding her own interpretation to it, and not crediting Almine, the unsatisfactory answer was: “Everyone knows this is Almine’s material. We talk about her all the time. Her name appears in almost every post”. However, I did not see credit to Almine or even her name on any of the numerous, random posts that I reviewed. This just isn’t acceptable.
Whenever Almine’s material is used, the guidelines are:
- Contact our office with any questions regarding proposed products.
- Credit Almine for her original work.
- Provide a link to Almine’s main website: www.spiritualjourneys.com
I would like to add to this, that I really enjoy when we are sharing our experiences, visions, insights and dreams. I find it very inspiring and very helpful, but that maybe just me.
Thank you to everyone for their posts! Jana, I agree that many people enjoy sharing their experiences of Almine’s teachings. It is the inspiration of her work flowing through each of us as a unique facet of creation that creates a symphony. Thus, we can share and inspire each other and all life.
Thank you for your question Malue. To keep it really simple: Yes, you are correct. Please contact our office if you are thinking of using the copyrighted, original work of Almine to teach others (for free or for profit) or to sell it to others as a product that they can study themselves. Copyright permission is required. In addition, do not add or subtract anything from Almine’s work as you teach it or make a product of it. Because if you do, very soon it becomes something other than what Almine received and shares with the world.
We don’t encourage anyone to add their interpretations to Almine’s work when they present it. Who can best interpret Almine’s work? Almine herself, due to the vastness of her perception. Perhaps our insights are unique and meant only for ourselves, like languages that may come to us or images, symbols, sigils, dreams, visions, etc. Almine has stated many times, that we keep this sort of information for our own use, perhaps in a notebook that we can refer to. It is not of value to everyone, but may be only for our own personal use.
It is one thing to demonstrate and teach Almine’s yogas, to give a testimonial as to how her teachings have changed our lives, or to share some personal experience, but quite another to attempt to ‘improve’ or make Almine’s work ‘accessible to others’ by interpreting it, and/or by combining it with our own ideas in order to create something we can then offer as a ‘new product’. It is like mixing the healing modality of Belvaspata, received by Almine, with some other healing modality, like Reiki. It just does not work.
You can read a post on Messages for Lightworkers titled, “The Differences Between a Seer, a Clairvoyant and an Oracle”. Almine is a Seer.
As we live our highest truth, in mastery, as self-sovereign beings, we illuminate the inspiration of the tools and teachings of Almine for all.
With love, praise and gratitude

thanks Jan – very clear !!
Thank you Jan,
I have found Almine’s work alchemical to the individual receiving it in its pristine form, it creates a magical essence that is unexplainable but it is received on a very intimate personal level.
Thank you for your presence Jan. 🙂
Thank You Jan!!?
Thanks for reminding us about copyright rules. I do have a question though. Please can you clarify the first bit of text about the meditations, as I don’t fully understand what is meant. The leaving room for interpretation is critical as I understand it? So if someone wants to create a product where they only repeat information (and credit Almine of course) it is ok, but if the product is based on Almine’s teachings or some principles or tones where the producer furthermore adds their interpretation/perspective/additional info (still crediting Almine), it is not ok? Perhaps I got this all wrong, so please bear with me 🙂
I realize that the integrity of Almine’s material and teachings need to be honoured and rules need to be specified in order to secure that. And I also know that we as individuals are encouraged to express our truth and inner wisdom, and for many of us this has come more and more online after studying with Almine. So I suppose it is also a balance to discern what is her direct teaching and what is inspiration from within each individual, emerging after having studied with her?
Of course all the concrete modalities that has specific protocols of use are not to be altered or added to/subtracted from (such as BVP and the yogas). But other teachings and insights that need to be lived and expressed by us individually to ground the information, I would think that that also includes teaching it to others or creating products based on what one has learned?
To be on the safe side – no matter what, best to always ask SJ office prior to creating anything that has to do with Almine’s material and teachings 🙂
With Love and Gratitude always,
