individuals may have difficulty absorbing her intuitive teachings, she
has profoundly influenced the lives of many, including myself. Even the
most scientifically inclined seem to open up to the seemingly miraculous
in her ethereal presence. It is difficult to logically think through the
Belvaspata-healing process. One must feel, sense, and tune into the
energies, surrendering to Shakespeare’s wisdom: “There are more things
in Heaven and Earth than in your philosophy.”
In spite of the
inherent challenge, I will try to place Belvaspata in a context that
will foster some understanding. Basically, as underscored by many
spiritual traditions, we are prisoners of our perceptual paradigms of
how we think the world should function. If we shift our consciousness
through, for example, Almine’s presence or Belvaspata-mediated
mechanisms, the perceptual prison starts to tumble, and mind-body-spirit
healing energies previously held in abeyance flow in.
healing is not just metaphysical hokum. Indeed, numerous studies
demonstrate that the consciousness, emotions, and attitudes we embrace
can affect our health. For example, scientists have started using the
emerging field of epigenetics to explain how consciousness can
affect gene expression and, as a result, our physicality and health. In
other words, we are not merely a hard-wired beneficiary or victim of our
genetics. We have choices; what we think and do can very much influence
which genes are turned on and to what degree.

“As the cell divides and creates
a new cell, our thought is implanted upon it…In the first cell,
all is perfect. That cell was first known as the Christ cell. It
is always just as young as ever it was. It never takes on old
age. It is the primal spark of life. When we implant in it our
thoughts of limitation or old age, or any condition outside of
perfection, the body responds. Cells born from the first cell
take on its image. Originally it is the image and likeness of
God. It is perfect in every way. But it becomes the form we
carry in our minds…if we carry the image of perfection always,
what will it do for these cells? It will build perfection.”
with Light & Frequency
Belvaspata heals with
light and frequency. It attempts to dispel the illusion underlying
disease that separates us from our greater oneness with all of its
healing potential. With Belvaspata, light is drawn to illusion and
frequency to distortion. Because polarity and duality crumble, healing
energies now become available to us.
facilitates the removal of the illusion of all disease as well as
distorted emotion and light; as such, it helps us to:

Focus and enhance the perfection,

Assist in the full expression of our being should it be

With Belvaspata, we
look beyond the physical appearance and manifestation of disease to the
existing underlying perfection, focusing on ‘what is’ (i.e., perfection)
and removing the focus from ‘what is not’ (i.e., imperfection).
Healing Oneness & The
This idea of healing oneness
resonates with the teachings of many of mankind’s spiritual
traditions and can be contextually understood within the ageless
wisdom of the “Perennial Philosophy.” In introducing The
Song of God: Bhagavad-Gita, Aldous Huxley described this
philosophy in which our individual consciousness is part of a
Divine Ground referred to differently in world religions (e.g.,
Godhead, Pure Light of the Void, Unity of Allah, etc):
“First: the phenomenal world of
matter and of individualized consciousness – the world of things
and animals and men” (including injured and diseased parts) “and
even gods – is the manifestation of a Divine Ground within which
all partial realities have their being, and part from which they
would be non-existent.”
Basically under this philosophy,
duality-based judgments create imprisoning perceptions which
separate you from your fellow man, greater unity, and larger
self. Through your duality-based judgments of good and bad, your
perceptual prison isolates you from the healing energies
available as part of your inherent connection to the
As discussed in
Almine's book (see bibliography) Belvaspata healing is mediated through
the use of unique sigils. Historically, sigils have been considered
magical or alchemical symbols. The term may derive from the Hebrew
segula, meaning a word, action, or item of spiritual effect, one
which improves a condition or protects one from harm.
In modern days, some
individuals have created their own sigils, devising unique ways of
charging them with metaphysical power. For example, English artist
Austin Osmand Spare developed a method by which “the words of a
statement of intent are reduced into an abstract design; the sigil is
then charged with the will of the creator.” He "elaborated his sigils by
condensing letters of the alphabet into diagrammatic glyphs of desire,
which were to be integrated into postural (yoga-like)
practices—"monograms of thought, for the government of energy."
Almine’s sigils are
ancient. Specifically, through her spiritual channeling, tapping into
deeply buried aspects of, as Carl Jung described, our collective
unconscious, she brought forth sigils from the mythical Lemuria.
According to Theosophical Society founder Helena Blavatsky, Lemuria was
an antediluvian civilization of an earlier race of men that predated
even the legendary Atlantis.
Sigils vs. Symbols
Sigils are not mere
symbols. Specifically, whereas a symbol represents something, a
sigil describes something. An example of a symbol is the
Mercedes-Benz logo, which triggers thoughts of affluence and engineering
quality. In another example, a Christian cross could generate very
different emotional reactions depending upon one’s religious background
and perceptions. Another cross that can also trigger widely differing
reactions is the swastika. Most familiar with the Nazi swastika and its
holocaust associations, Westerners are often startled to see swastikas
drawn on doors and entrances in Hindu communities. For Hindus, however,
the swastika is an ancient symbol inviting the goddess of wealth,
prosperity, and fortune to come in. Clearly, the psychic energy
triggered by a swastika is different for a Hindu than it would be for a
World War II veteran.
Words too are
symbols, conveying different meanings based upon individual perceptions
and consciousness. For example, the word “love” has diverse meanings
depending upon context. The ancient Greeks used eros for erotic
love, philos for love of friendship, and agape for divine-spark
love. In contrast, the sigil for love describes the quality or frequency
of what is meant. It maps out the exact frequency of the emotion,
independent of one’s perceptions. When it comes to energetic meaning,
they are the metaphysical “real McCoy,” not clouded by the ambiguity of
According to Almine,
sigils are “packed full of awareness particles,” an idea that resonates
with the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto, best-selling author of The Hidden
Messages in Water. Although not focused on sigils, Emoto’s work
demonstrates that word and image symbols energetically affect the
structure of water, specifically its crystallization. Basically, when
water is exposed to the positive, beautiful crystals are created, while
the negative produces unpleasing, asymmetrical patterns. For example,
the spiritual cornerstone words love and gratitude taped over a bottle
of water resulted in beautiful, perfect crystals. However, when harmful
intent words were used, crystals were ugly or didn’t even form.
Given our bodies
consist mostly of water, these findings suggest that our consciousness
can have profound effects on our water-based physiology. If the energy
behind ambiguous words can exert such an influence, one can only
speculate on the influence exerted by precisely defined, power-packed

appropriate use of sigils, illusion-displacing energies can be called in
to foster healing at many mind-body-spirit levels.
A Belvaspata session
is initiated by drawing three sigils over the body. The first sigil ‘Opening
the Mind’ is drawn over the forehead, and the sigil name is stated.
While gazing at a sigil for the corresponding Angel (an energy
associated with the sigil -see reference 3), ask the Angel to place the
Opening-the-Mind sigil within the forehead. The second and third sigils
‘Opening the Heart’ and ‘Receptivity of the Body’ are similarly placed
within the heart and naval area.
Opening of the Mind
Opening of the Heart
Opening of the Body
After the opening,
meditatively envision yourself expanding until you are as vast as the
cosmos and your consciousness is blended with all that is. Then place
the person you are working with (or yourself) within that greater
oneness, focusing not on the problem but the underlying existing
Next, draw the sigil
corresponding to the specific disorder, issue or anatomical structure
over the appropriate areas, calling out the corresponding Angel name.
For example, if you’re a diabetic, draw the sigil for blood sugar and
purification; if you have reproductive problems, use the sigils for the
genitals and reproductive organs; if you’re depressed, trace the sigil
for depression; and if you have pain use the corresponding pain sigils.
Each session should
be closed with the drawing of the sigils for praise, love, and gratitude
over the heart or body.
Spinal Cord Injury
For many years, I’ve
been involved in researching and writing about therapies that expand the
healing spectrum for spinal cord injury, often from a mind-body-spirit
perspective. Historically, spinal cord injury has been one of mankind’s
most devastating disorders. The ancient Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus
written in Egyptian hieroglyphics states that spinal cord injury is an
ailment not to be cured, a view that has prevailed for 5,000 years -
until recently. For the first time in mankind’s history, there is
beginning to be a shift in our consciousness about what is possible
after injury. Patients once resigned to the defeating
you-will-never-walk-again attitude that is deeply imprinted in
consciousness after injury are becoming more and more convinced that
some recovery truly may be possible. This shift by itself will greatly
accelerate progress. Belvaspata can help catalyze this shift.
Spinal cord injury
results in a multitude of secondary physiological problems above and
beyond paralysis. There are numerous sigils that may help some of these
problems. In addition to these specialized sigils, Almine has developed
an overall sigil for spinal cord injury to promote healing at different
mind-body-spirit levels. Ideally, this sigil should be used as described
above. In addition, to help absorb the sigil into your consciousness,
draw the sigil on paper and hang it in an area where a lot of time is
spent. It also can be placed under a sleeping
area or a massage table, etc.
Sigil for Spinal Cord Injury
According to a source
independent from Almine, Belvaspata, indeed, has ancient
Lemurian roots. It has an energetic that can be helpful with the
specific goal and aim of reducing thought, patterns, and
distractions until there is a sense of purity of consciousness
or simply of being. From this state, many things can outflow,
most of which can be quite healing. Used over time, sigils have
a useful effect and will connect to many functioning systems, in
particular the nadis of the physical body. [i.e., channels
through which life-force, prana energy circulates.]
shifts in consciousness, our perceptual prison tumbles like the walls of
Jericho, and we reestablish at-one-ment with the Divine Ground. This
renewed connection with our greater self allows healing energies to flow
in. As above, so below, our healed consciousness then percolates into
