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.
