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.

Perfect weather for working in the garden. #barlowtyrie #sunlounger. Fledge sitting on the table with us. #Chihuahua honeys snuggling into my blanket. Pouring with rain but we’re cosy and dry under the veranda.
Listening to #KateRusby at the moment and #daisyrock on standby for when I’ve finished working…or a book…or some sketching…depending when my bf finishes work I may work here for a couple of hours yet 🙂 Writing a new blog, writing channelled information from my #spiritguide down…he talks in images sometimes so I like to write it up in a more understable way. And reading the #happinessproject book.
Heavenly fresh rain grassy smell mixed with dog smell and a bit of #chanel no 19…so homely and cosy.
Big love #hippies and #hipsters!
We tend to think of healing as a single level but relaxation, the reduction of stress, assistance in sleep and pain management can be helpful in those to are about to make the transition.
It also provides a powerful way to connect – and creates a relaxed environment in which to talk about things the dying person might feel unable to with others or in more clinical settings. That’s not to say it won’t be challenging! But it can be an opportunity to share love as a family that is unique to our regular experiences.
My dad died of cancer last year. An inoperable brain tumour; and being able to provide him with the benefits of Reiki and my counselling/psychoanalysis experience…and natural forms of treatment, was intensely beneficial for us both. Being able to offer support and guidance in a situation that seems otherwise may seem bleak is an opportunity to reclaim the sacred aspects of this unique time. An opportunity beneficial (potentially) to all involved.
Natural Healing techniques can help relieve symptoms; we may benefit from healing on a spiritual and emotional level. Knowing you’re terminally ill can make people depressed – it’s rather a monumental time and rather monumental news. And it’s not unusual to experience shock and the stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining), when we hear the word “terminal”. But the shock part passes and we have to find a way to live with death. Something our life experience rarely prepares us for; it can make people feel unable to discuss the nitty gritty too – how death happens biologically. What to expect. What is a death rattle? Why do people who are dying usually go into a coma?
We can find these things out. And understanding the physical process can be reassuring. But creating an environment in which people feel they can connect and share in what is a very intimate experience…that’s the part no one teaches us! And I believe Reiki and sharing energy healing can be an excellent starting point for opening up and sharing our experiences and ideas together.
Death is a natural part of our lives – but we do tend to think of it as something that happens in a clinical setting with drips and medical staff…and ends with an anonymous phone call from a random doctor at 3am. We’ve stopped seeing it as being part of the cycle of life – and started to see aging and mortality as negative and to be avoided at all costs!
We are very distanced from our mortality in the modern world and this is emphasised in many ways by modern medicine…and probably also the fact many of us aren’t religious these days; also there is a way that even in some religions death is considered an inappropriate topic for discussion – or it’s discussed only in coded terms. The afterlife being focused on rather than death itself and the biological process of death.
Something important is lost in this I feel. Think back 100 or 150 years, people were used to seeing death first hand from an early age. Their family members usually died at home and often with the same treatments as end of life care provided now…counsellors instead of priests – but with morphine to control symptoms of the final days and hours.
If we saw this in our homes from a young age, we would undoubtedly understand death in a very different way. And while we consider such close encounters with the dying potentially depressing (tragic, unbelievable, despair inspiring) when they happen in the real world today, they don’t have to be. This modern perspective is rather new and our past understanding of the process can teach us a lot.
Death can be seen as part of a natural transition. The physical death of the body here marking its rebirth into the next world. A sacred experience when we see it from this perspective and allow ourselves to overcome our fears and resistance and to see…it may be messy or strange to us…so is the birth of babies! But we don’t have a problem seeing that as sacred. Death comes to all and yet we can go through most of our lives trying to remain “uninvolved”. I feel this is not only to our detriment but also to the detriment of those who are dying. And one day, that will apply to each of us.
Don’t be depressed…you will die one day; you will live on many others!
My dad received home hospice care during his transition and it opened my eyes in many ways to the very personal experience the dying person has. And how modern attitudes can be isolating and prevent a natural transition being experienced in a natural way by everyone involved.
There are some great books (especially those by Felicity Warner) about Soul Midwifery. And the Pagan Book of Living and Dying by Starhawk that offer some practical and philosophical ideas that can draw people together if things are experienced openly and this final journey considered something we take together and acknowledge for the sacred time it is.
I’m all for using Reiki as a complimentary therapy to assist in achieving a good/peaceful passing.
As I said, not all healing takes place on a physical level. The mental, spiritual and emotional benefits can be incredibly powerful for anyone involved – the person who is dying, the family and friends – Energy Healing can provide a way to share in the journey that can be powerfully healing for everyone.
XX ALM (Mayastar)
I was recently asked this on my FB group page. Answering without sounding so kookie people following the page who hadn’t heard the term might think definition meant answering it quite carefully! Some new age ideas are very old ideas but with new “jargon” or extensions of existing beliefs and ideas not new to all religions but somehow “reframed” out of context so they do come over sounding a bit far fetched!
It’s a criticism I have for the “New Age” in general. Lots of ideas without much basis and without any subjective or objective reasoning behind them…let alone citing sources that have existed for thousands of years that say the same thing in different words. I am also guilty of not citing sources. I have a really good memory (part of my aspergers – high functioning autism). But I draw a blank remembering faces. And apparently names too. When I am reading fiction I notice I almost blank names as I read them! So even if I remember the book…the cover…where I was when I read it etc, I won’t have retained the author’s name. My mind seems to consider names very unimportant which is why most people in my life have nicknames I’ve given them. It’s my weird “name blindness”.
Anyway…back to the topic…in answering the question referring to similar or associated ideas the person was likely to know instead of me rambling on with a lot of new age jargon, I feel I explained the concept well.
As a teacher of energy healing, attunement based spiritual development courses and meditation based courses, I am very aware of ensuring my writing is accessible to people who have no previous experience.
Also, I am not running a cult teaching new words for ideas that promote exclusivity…or fudge the details so people don’t realise they are not being told anything. Those are pet hates of mine.
Also, as a teacher I don’t want to alienate people who hold religious beliefs that may be different to mine. I don’t teach religion and I don’t like it when people dress ideas and philosophies as being facts. We can be as objective in our explanations as possible – but even the best articulated philosophical deductions are open to debate. (I do feel my Autism helps me to communicate higher concepts in a more accessible way because I have to do it so much as my normal life experience. It definitely helps rather than hinders my work!).
I promote freedom and empowerment so I won’t dogmatically preach theories as facts. I know some new age writers do this…but I think real understanding is only available when you digest information for yourself.
I may be hypersensitive to it…aware sometimes that a blog is addressed to people with a prior knowledge…I always try to pitch my writing so it’s useful to people without prior knowledge; defining terms sometimes makes all the difference!
Anyway…enough about my motivations for the way I addressed the question! In my own words, the answer goes something like this…
Some people believe in reincarnation. Some believe some of us had previous lives on other planets or stars perhaps in a different dimension not a physical body, but a life or origin that’s not of this earth and possibly not of this plane (dimension).
People who feel that often refer to themselves as “starseeds”.
For me personally, I think it’s very possible other worlds and types of existance are viable in addition to being a humans on earth with some kind of soul that exists beyond our biological reality.
I also do agree with the concept because as I child I recall feeling “homesick”. My Aspergers may have been part of that; some people also believe some “advanced” spiritual beings choose to reincarnate to help others achieve spiritual wholeness and that High Functioning Autism or some types of epilepsy are a part of that.
That’s not a new idea but the term “starseeded” is a new age term for it. They may also use terms like “earth angels”, “indigos” and “crystal children” etc…depending on the current trend in ideas or new ideas about old ideas!
I do feel I lived somewhere else before I came here as a human. And that it wasn’t like this. And I miss it. I think of it as being “homesick for heaven”. But I don’t claim to understand what it was or where it was. I do feel the work I do now in this life was chosen before I came here. And I feel it will continue when I leave (die). But I don’t have proof of that. It’s just something I feel so strongly it feels more real than real to me. And I have since met other people who also remember the “before life”.
Some people would suggest my feelings are born of delusion…failing to grasp that the Asper brain is not prone to delusion or irrationality; they are experiences more common to people whose beliefs are a reaction to their emotions. Rather than someone whose mind is hyper-rational. Our problems in being understood usually come from our capacity to naturally experience and express our experiences in a far more abstract way than our lower-functioning peers.
This capacity for abstract understand is why many High Functioning Autistics display unusually advanced language skills, may be drawn to mathematics and tend to show greater creativity. Not all share the same special skills or special interests. But I have no doubt that the work I do teaching energy healing and my magickal ‘career’ are advanced by my Aspergers in ways people of a neurotypical function wouldn’t experience. I wouldn’t trade my High Functioning brain for one that didn’t see music, feel colours or understand how to reweave karma (spells) the way I do. My work through www.mayastar.netand www.mayamagickal.net absolutely relies on my mind being as it is!
The long and short of it is some people believe people who are born with Higher Functioning Autism or Epilepsy (I have Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) were “god touched” thousands of years ago. That’s the phrase they would have used here centuries ago. And only relatively recently have the insights, perspectives and non-confirmity of people like me been negatively interpreted as a deficiency or fault.
This is beginning to change. With High Functioning Autistics being head hunted for their unique abilities especially in identifying problems quickly or irregularities in (for example) programming scripts that a Neurotypical wouldn’t be able to do so accurately or quickly.
And of course, the New Age has seen a revival in old spiritual and philosophical understandings that our uniqueness is a gift: an extra abilty not a disability!
