How Mayastar Online Natural Healing & Spiritual Development Courses Work & What sets Mayastar Academy Apart!

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.

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!

What are Starseeds? I High Functioning Autism | God Touched | Indigo Children | Witches | Lightworkers | Uniqueness & Non-Conformity as Spiritual Ideals

image

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!

Anna Louise May (Mayastar) Whispering Witch YouTube Channel | An Invitation & Gratitude ♡

image

I’m just uploading my latest Whispering Witch video to my youtube channel. It’s about applications for the Goddess Aradia Spell which is on the current special offer…but I had to end it with a massive THANK YOU to those people who are watching my videos, liking them, giving me feed back and subscribing to the channel at www.youtube.annalouisemay.net

I was really nervous about using this medium because I have Aspergers (a type of higher functioning autism) and sometimes it means, I don’t want to talk.  I couldn’t see a way I would be able to make a channel I could use consistently in a way that would be useful. Before my dad died last year, it was something I told him I really needed to do as my business is online and as other networks are become less useful, youtube has gone from strength to strength. I wondered if maybe I might even be able to just use it post up some of my music…but couldn’t see a way of using it that would be particularly useful for my work given my limitations.

Well…the ASMR trend was the answer. And although the channel’s only been running a month, or 3 weeks, it has 45 subscribers. I don’t pay to advertise it or anything – I so share it on my other networks – but to put that in context, my WordPress Blog which I spend a lot more time on, has 30 followers.  It does get more views but people don’t tend to subscribe.

Some of the videos I’ve posted have had a much higher number of views than I would have expected. And when I happened upon the ‘analytics’ page on youtube recently I was stunned to find almost 6000 minutes of view time has been racked up in the short time the channel’s been running.

I’ve had good feed back and I’m surprised that I’ve found a niche I can cater to; my style of vlogging is not typical but it’s gone down well – much better than I hoped.

So I post every night. And I will continue to. And thank you sooooo much to those who are already watching my channel…thank you to those who have shared it with other people…thank you for the feedback and thank you for staying tuned. I’m really, really pleased and surprised.

I would be most grateful to anyone who would share this with their friends…anyone who might be interested in my work. I will quote from the ‘blurb’ that comes up in the info area of my blogs and tells you a bit about it…

“Nocturnal Heart to Heart style vlog in ASMR soft speaking format from ALM, the Whispering Witch.

A bit about me, my vlog & the format I use…

I have Aspergers (a type of high functioning autism) means I’m more comfortable using ASMR “whispered conversation”. The mutual increased focus this initiates allows a more intimate communication & natural connection.

My intention is to use whispered conversation to provide a unique & informal style that will be relaxing to watch, pleasant to hear & with subjects accessible to viewers.

PLEASE wear headphones! (straining to hear a computer speaker isn’t relaxing!)

I plan to upload various vids; some may be general or personal updates; others may be more informative, based around my spiritual & magickal work;  general chats & reviews. Also, ‘streams of consciousness’…with no fixed ‘subject’.

Please be aware, I have photosensitive epilepsy and when it gets late and I’m winding down, sometimes this affects me so I tend to wear sunglasses indoors – it’s not an attempt to look extremely cool! That’s just a side effect! I’m aware this looks kind of weird to some people but it means I don’t need meds to control seizures so I use what works for me and doesn’t have side effects.

NOTE: Although Whispering is used in ASMR, I use this technique because it is more comfortable for my autism & is a natural part of my night when I’m winding down for bed. More info on my intro vid – https://youtu.be/dNPMSkX5q9I

If this sounds at all compelling, please tune in and please share the love! XXX

Maya Magickal Update | Price Increases for Magickal Intensives | Killing Moon Karmic Reversal | LightBody Activation Initiation Programme

image

The price increases for Magickal Intensives will take effect from June.  The options affected most significantly are those that are popular to the point that I’m over-booked now more months than I’m not!

So the Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30 Day Ritual Intensive – www.mayamagickal.net/killingmoon.htm which is currently £600 for the full 30 days, will be increased to £800 after the June cycle begins.

The LightBody Activation Initiation Intensive (which is a 21 day programme) detailed atwww.mayamagickal.net/healingintensives.htmwill also be increased from £600 to £800.

Magickal Intensives that include either or both of these options will also be affected. These can be found at www.mayamagickal.net/magickalintensives.htm

These changes will be taking effect in a matter of days so if you’re considering taking any of the options affected buying now rather than later would be recommended if you wanted to take advantage of the existing prices.

Additionally, if you would like information regarding reversal spells, psychic self defence, psychic attack and protection, as well as the details on the website that can be found at the links above, you may also wish to visit my blog at www.wordpress.annalouisemay.net where there are a number of articles that expand on the information on the site; the same goes for initiation work, self realisation and magick in general.  You can also find articles on my channel at www.youtube.annalouisemay.net.

“Through Our Eyes: Living with Asperger’s” | Aspergirl | Magick | Mayastar | Meditation | Energy Healing

https://youtu.be/2TSlti5bioQ

I’ve blogged abt my aspergers…vlogged about my aspergers. And being able to use my High Functioning to do my work and do it in ways that a Neurotypical couldn’t, is a fulfilling experience. Living within my means when it comes to social connection, sensory stimulation (have to be more careful because those thing can trigger seizures – perhaps more now than when I was younger), and managing the additional anxiety (aspies make less oxytocin than neurotypicals – that means we don’t have the same way out of stress – most of us develop strategies for that through experience though so that’s something that’s become much easier with time for me).

But sometimes…one of the most depressing things to hear, is someone saying my brain wiring is a syndrome…is your eye colour a syndrome? Would you feel weird if people said you had been born with curly hair syndrome?

I’m sure you would. I feel the same when people see my autism as separate to me. Or they disregard or judge certain aspects while celebrating others. As if certain parts of me are not really connected. I don’t feel that way in myself…I think perhaps it reflects a limitation of the neurotypical mind that it can’t conceive mine as integrated!

People who know me know the challenges I have worked with – my total recall memory for example…great for learning but a nightmare if something bad happens and you remember it.

For me…the best thing that ever happened to me was my formal diagnosis – it meant I could research it and many more things made sense. Also, when you understand the physiological root of some tendencies it’s far easier to look for useful changes in behaviour or habit that will make life easier.

My routine is vital to my well being for reasons different to those a NT would cite. But if it means I eat healthy, exercise, don’t drink or smoke, meditate regularly etc. These are habits that would probably benefit a lot of people!

My habit of being nocturnal also helps a great deal but it works well for me. Magick (the actual process of Self Realisation – not the card game and not conjuring!), was my special interest from an early age and now that’s a huge advantage in my work (teaching online courses for energy healing, spiritual development & meditation – and doing ritual work to help people).

If it wasn’t for the extraordinary advantages that come as part of my autism, I wouldn’t have the extraordinary life I have now.

So I absolutely in no way shape or form would trade myself as I am for a more “ordinary” version ♡
