This blog is inspired by an enquiry I received. It includes a lot of useful information that applies to many of my enquiries so I decided to turn it into an information article that covers many of the frequently asked questions I receive.
I hope you will find it useful! It takes the form of an email response…
“My dear Friend,
Thank you for your request for information.
Please find attached information manuals that explain about Mayastar Academy, Maya Magickal, energy healing, attunements, lightworkers as well as the current syllabus and other options available.
Most energy based systems combine very well with Reiki. Some are based on developing connections with light beings to guide your work and your life and others are more structured or vibrationally specific energies you can use alonside Reiki in healing sessions or on their own. Reiki forms a good basis for practicing within because it is structured but as you develop it’s natural to work in a more intuitive way and including new energies is a great way to do this.
The courses you are drawn to are usually the best place to start. If you feel feel guided to them there’s no better start than that. So for someone wanting to develop their energy healing and spiritual development experience I would recommend a variety – including empowerments to connect to higher beings, systems for healing that work well together and systems that are comprehensive and allow you to develop new ways to work.
A popular option is the Avalonian Trilogy which includes the Avalonian Alignment Programme, Star of Avalon Ascension & Avalonian Spectral Activations – incorporating working with meditation, healing, manifesting through the use of symbols, sounds and energy flows. These can be used together or separately but the system is very comprehensive and works with guardian spirits of sacred land/energy. The Avalonian beings are connected with Pleiadians and what we would call Faery or Earth energy Light Beings so it also allows you to build personal connections with the “tribe” so to speak which can help in many ways – providing personal and professional guidance and facilitating development. You can find more information about the Avalonian Trilogy at www.mayastar.net/aap.htm
This would be my personal recommendation too because it encompasses so much.
Based on your Angelic and Faery connections and experience with Usui Reiki as well as courses that combine well with Usui Reiki…I would recommend (in no particular order):
- Lightworker Archangelic Links
- Fairy Lightworker Program
- Magickal Lightworker Program
- Archangelic Flames
- Orb of Life
- Kundalini Reiki
- Ethereal Crystal Healing
- Violet Flame Attunement
- Rainbow Sequence Healing
- Crystal Rose Attunement
- Nature Deva & Fairies
- Magickal Shaman Lightworker
These are detailed on the complete course list page at www.mayastar.net/courses.htm so you can read more about them and see what resonates with you.
You can receive a personalised package discount if you buy 3 or more options: 20% for 3 or more options; 25% for 6 or more options; 30% for 10 or more; 40% for 20 or more. To enrol on a personalised package please email your order to me and I will send a paypal request reflecting the relevant discount so that you can pay online securely by credit or debit card. (Note – a personalised package can include magical options from www.mayamagickal.net and courses from www.mayastar.net).
As an example, were you to select all of the courses recommended above, the fee would normally be £1020 but with the personalised package discount this would be reduced to £700 with the Personalised Package Discount.
When you enrol on courses with Mayastar you will first receive your course manuals, study guides (Book of Inspiration Volumes 1-5), and an instruction email to guide you in the order to read the materials and explain how attunements work, how you receive them and so on. There is also additional information provided on vibrational healing, quantum theory, metaphysics, lightworkers, meditation, multi-dimensional philosophy and much more to give you an overview of where energy healing fits in to the grand scheme of things. This means courses are accessible to people with no previous experience and also provides inspiration to those who do!
Your attunements are set up by me personally and within 7 days of purchase you are sent your certification and confirmation with instructions.
All Mayastar Academy courses are web based and can be taken by people anywhere in the world. Manuals and Study Guides are in PDF format so you can study from your phone, tablet, computer or print them off.
All courses are accredited by the International Natural Healers Association and World Metaphysical Association; who also accredit Mayastar as an established (in 2004) academy and myself as a teacher/spiritual facilitator.
All courses are to Master level and enable the student to pass attunement on. And all courses can be upgraded (with a £20 administration fee) to a diploma. The Diploma certification requires you submit written work to demonstrate experience and understanding of that system.
Support for students is via email and is included as part of my service during and beyond your course.
There is no fixed time for you to call in an attunement once it’s ready. You can take it at your own pace and prepare for your attunements in the way that suits you. Many prefer this flexibility and privacy to the mass attunement options of seminars and other less personal options. Energy work and spiritual development is an intensely personal experience and over time I have ensured this is maintained while still being able to provide professional but tailored support for individual students.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope to work with you soon.
If you are new to energy healing, the idea of “studying” a subject you have no experience of can be off putting. Worrying whether you will “pass” or be “good enough” is sort of natural when most of our experience of learning is based in academia.
There are some natural healing or alternative therapeutic systems that require it. Acupuncture and reflexology mean learning a lot and remembering a lot of new information.
I receive emails from potential students who feel intimidated by the idea of learning something new – especially if they haven’t “studied” for a long time.
So I would like to address this in a blog! And of course I can speak only for myself and Mayastar Academy Online and the best way is to address how courses work.
The Energy Anatomy Diploma Course I teach is the exception and requires written assignments to complete the course and a final exam.
All other Mayastar courses are distance learning energy attunement based courses.
An energy attunement is like an “energy lesson” that is passed on from me to the student and can be passed on only by someone who is already attuned to that system. The attunement allows you to connect simply with energy vibrations of different frequencies for the purpose of healing or rebalancing the energy body.
Different systems have different methods for attunement and for application and may have unique purposes such as equipping the student to accelerate their spiritual development, enhance specific gifts, facilitate connection with light beings, for self healing or providing healing treatments to others.
When someone buys a Mayastar Course they receive access online 15 information & study guides that are exclusive to Mayastar. These contain information on attunements, energy healing, meditation, grounding, metaphysics and a variety of subjects that “support” all courses.
The course manual(s) specific to the chosen modality are attached to the instruction introduction email which is sent within 24 hours.
Each course is to Master level which means you can pass attunements on – however for those who intend to do so, check with your insurance provider because they may require certification that attests to your experience as well as to your ability. This is available by upgrading any course to a diploma level.
To qualify for a diploma does require an additional fee due to the time and maintenance of records. And it requires the student provide case studies to indicate their experience.
However most students take the basic course (the fees detailed on the website include the attunements, study materials, retention of student records and ongoing support for your chosen course), and are rewarded a certificate of achievement (accredited by the International Natural Healers Association and World Metaphysical Association) via email that also includes their lineage for that system. The course lineage details your place from the course originator up to date so a system originated by me would be me (Rev. Anna Louise May) and you. A lineage for an older system like Usui Reiki will have your lineage back to Mikao Usui. This is a way to validate you have received attunement from a qualified Master.
Before your attunement I recommend students read the first 3 parts of the Mayastar Study Guides (covering energy attunements and the process by which you receive them), then the course manual.
There is no written work for energy attunement based systems but you need to do the reading part. The attunement itself is like a meditation session. And the onus is on the student to gain experience by using the system or systems they are attuned to.
You can’t be “over attuned” but you will likely find there are systems you resonate with and work with more than others. I teach over 200 modalities through Mayastar but have been attuned to double that! I only teach systems that I have personally worked with. And this is an important point! An attunement may pass on the ability to pass on attunement to others but teaching is a unique skill and experience is something the student can only gain on their own.
Different energies can be compared to different notes or chords of vibration – each subtly different. The experience of attunement and working with energy healing enables you to develop your sensitivity to different frequencies as well as your intuition.
Most people start by learning a system that is a good all rounder like Usui Reiki – good for developing your skills, structured in application and suitable for personal development, self healing and healing others. Or by selecting courses for energy they feel drawn to such as angelic or crystal energies.
On the right hand side of the Mayastar site you’ll find course category menus to help you locate courses that work with energies you have a natural affinity with or may have some experience with.
If you would like more information about Mayastar Academy Online Courses and a copy of the current syllabus please email me at email@example.com to receive your complimentary copy.
And if you decide to pursue your study in energy healing, I look forward to working with you!

One of the most common problems people face after being involved in any context, with someone who is narcissistic (self centred…remember not everyone with selfish tendencies is classified narcissist but they may share some of the issues and create similar problems…resulting in similar fall out for those around them).
A narcissist is unconscious of the value and autonomy of people around them. In many ways their situation is like that of a child trapped in the “terrible twos” – complete with tantrums, deception and a childish belief that the world revolves around them.
Most grow out of this stage. It is the emergence of the Ego and in many ways the beginning of psychological autonomy. So it’s considered and is a natural growth phase. And beyond it the higher faculties are developed – empathy in particular and the ability to identify with others and to know humility.
In the narcissist something internal or external stunts this growth. Narcissistic brains tend to be highly intelligent and the process of maturation takes longer. It may be that certain stages are bypassed and emotional maturity is never achieved…it may be that being treated as an over achiever during their extended formative years means that those with narcissistic tendencies experience a longer period in which things can go wrong; that nature and nurture combine to inhibit the realisation of objective consciousness.
That’s just a theory. But as an autistic I have always found narcissists a curiosity and a proof that the theory about autistic people lacking empathy is not the case. I can only speak for myself in that and with my family members but early on I seemed to overly empathise. I never had tantrums. I never rebelled. And I think autistics with high functioning either develop so quickly through the ego phase or it’s so insignificant to our sense of reality (which is very abstract generally), we are the psychological opposite of narcissists in many ways.
I certainly feel narcissistic people seem to have a problem with me because their usual manipulations or attention seeking/self validating behaviours don’t exert the desired response from me.
Narcissistic personalities can be covert or overt and the abuse they perpetuate depends much on their type. Coverts can be very controlling and manipulative – mind games, martyr complexes and hyperchondria that means they can assume a victim role throughout life. Overts may be more obvious. Talking over you or verbally abusing you. They may even become physically abusive.
But the real damage is caused by the controlling behaviours however they are expressed. The genuine victim of a narcissist often questions their own sanity and wonders if they are the narcissist. And narcissists encourage that kind of blurring of the edges…where they end and you begin.
This kind of manipulation of reality that leaves you wondering just what you’re seeing and doubting yourself is called “gas lighting” and is a deliberate tactic in control and manipulation.
Of all abuses I think this gradual undermining of another’s sense of self and sense of reality has the most insidious side effects. It happens so gradually and is common to all narcissistic types and it casts the longest shadow in victims because of its very nature.
Addressing and removing yourself from s situation of physical or verbal abuse is easy to see. The damage done by the gas lighting really isn’t and it’s more prevalent because covert narcissists do the same thing.
Psychically this leaves the victim with the fear that they are the “bad one”; deficient in some way; unprofessional and to blame. A feeling that can take a very long time to move on from because of its nebulous nature.
Remember, the narcissist doesn’t ever stop to wonder if they are at fault. This is the chasm between the narcissist and others. Their sense of entitlement and lack of consciousness and self awareness. For them, it’s a given that the fault is someone else’s so if you are left doubting yourself, you are not the narcissist.
This kind of undermining of the victim creates problems though. Low self esteem. Anxiety. A tendency to over analyse or take on more responsibility in any given situation than is realistic. But worst I think is the sense of unreality. The victim buys into the narcissist’s view and sacrifices their own and regaining that centering isn’t easy.
On a psychic level this is the real damage of the psychic attack. There are implications on all levels and spiritually it can cause all kinds of ambivalence as the mind swings from idea to idea seeking a truth.
Many clients and students come to me to begin healing this sense of ungroundedness. And energy healing, meditation and certain rituals can certainly help. But it is as if you leave the relationship or connection with an addiction. An addiction to a person or a habit of allowing them to think for you. And that can feel disorientating or terrifying by turns for a long time. It takes time to heal and the first step is acknowledging you are not imagining it.
The psychological damage caused is what we would call a psychic attack and because you’re juggling the other attacks you may not notice it happening.
But despite the nightmare of it, if you choose the right tools to help you through, you can gain great insight into yourself and a unique perspective of the world and of life.
It creates an opportunity where you have to start again because you can’t go back to a point before happened. Starting from scratch with experience and wisdom means you have access to a greater potential happiness than you had in the past. It won’t be easy! But I can personally vouch for the fact that energy work, meditation and magick can make it easier!
It’s around now I start taking stock of where I am and where I want to be and what I should be doing now to make sure I end up where I want to be.
I guess you consider it like a time of new year resolutions but for witches the last harvest (Samhain or Halloween) marks the end of the year and I personally tend to begin my considerations from my birthday on 14th September…and implement them between 1st November and the Winter Solstice (just before Christmas!). So my Christmas celebration is more focused on successfully completing a cycle and starting the new one well. I don’t celebrate the numeric new year – for me it doesn’t have any energetic significance.
It was thinking about that, that made me realise non pagans have their own rituals for Christmas, New Year, Halloween and Easter that aren’t so dissimilar to my own. And although it may be seasonal energies that determine my cycles and how I align my life to them to make use of the natural tides…solar and lunar…most people have their own pattern to life an acknowledge certain days and anniversaries…bank holidays and so on…which essentially map their year in a unique way.
I am sure many people make use of these and add their own to the main ones…personal days of rembrance or significance…and impersonal ones too…the end of the financial year, the deadline for submitting their tax return…all kinds of dates form part of your annual cycle blueprint.
So anyone can use their own blueprint to include times of healing and cleansing, meditation, personal analysis, decision making, executing changes and hibernating. When the seasons change I tend to spend more time writing and reading and that’s the start of my “assessment” of the past year and the time I make note of changes to make and how I will make them.
It’s so much a part of my life that I don’t allocate time to it…it’s part of the natural flow of my life and it’s the acknowledgement of pagan fire festivals, solar and lunar tides over the last 28 years that has made it so much of my life.
On reflection I think it’s probably why I tend to be a high achiever…I tend to jettison time wasters or bad habits quickly and pay attention to what’s going on within and without myself, my life, my body and health, spiritual health and development and it really helps. There has never been a time I have seen a challenge in my life as insurmountable because my experience is that I roll with the punches in all areas of my life.
I would encourage other people to do similar…working into their own annual blue print. Start by writing down a list of significant dates or times in your personal year – birthdays and holidays as well…and then notice how the year is split into different parts…reflect on how what you do, enjoy and even eat changes seasonally and notice how changes coincide with different times on your blueprint.
Then think about what you naturally do or feel at those times of the year and how you might use that tendency to really make the most of things.
An example might be obvious that at the end of the financial year people decide about changes or developments to their business. In the summer they may feel more positive and use this time focus on their physical health and become more physically active. If you become bookish in the winter maybe choose the subject matter you’re going to focus on during that season and make a proper study of it.
Times that naturally lend themselves to family time like holidays and Christmas you might want to prepare for more mindfully and consider the real reasons you give and receive gifts and what you are celebrating.
We can give meaning to our lives and actions simply by paying attention to what we do. And while I advocate meditation and energy work because that’s what I teach through Mayastar Academy Online Natural Healing & Spiritual Development, I do believe a great deal can be achieved in our personal, professional, spiritual and health simply by becoming more aware of these things.
Self awareness & Mindfulness are definite the keys to experiencing the Wholeness of life!

The Crystal Rose is an ethereal crystal but is unique in that it has a particular form, colour and distinctive properties with specific means and purposes of application. The Crystal Rose itself is composed of subtle energy of a high vibration. It resonates with the etheric component of the human heart centre and is concerned with the healing nature of love and compassion.
The Crystal Rose was channelled through the Avalonian Light Beings and it’s concerned with the heart chakra on a spiritual level, assisting with healing love of the self and others. It’s a wonderfully nurturing feminine energy current and can be used on others too – it need only take a few minutes to work with it each day and it’s a wonderful way to end healing sessions with other modalities too! There is one symbol included with the system for those who find visualising the crystal rose a bit of a challenge but other than that, the system is very simple to work with. The 31 page manual is very detailed and has beautiful illustrations.
The course manual includes all of the information required to work with this system; to receive your attunement, teach others and so on. In addition, you will find information on energy exchange, Quantum Physics, the power of the mind, metaphysics, prayer, vibrational medicine & philosophy, the energy body, complementary therapies, energy healing and how it all works!
