Everything You Need to Know to Begin Energy Healing Work!

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.

And if you decide to pursue your study in energy healing, I look forward to working with you!

The Crystal Rose Energy Healing Attunement Course from Mayastar Academy Online 

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!

 

Course includes:

  • One distant attunement

  • Course manual by Rev. Anna May – 31 pages in pdf format by email

  • eBook: “The Book of Inspiration: Vibrational Medicine, Spirituality & Lightwork� Companion Guides Compendium by Rev. Anna May.

Mayastar Academy Online Energy Healing Courses: Pleiadian DNA Clearing & Activation Attunement Programme 

The Pleiadian DNA Clearing & Activation Attunement Programme is a series of 7 attunements facilitated by the Pleiadian Light Beings of the Star Alcyone.  These activations work on an etheric level to awaken and develop the full 12 strand DNA system that is the inheritance of all humans.  This awakens additional spiritual healing capacities and talents within us which can assist us and enhance our lives in many ways.

This system clears any blockages and activates the dormant elements of your DNA coding in order to fulfil the potential of your spiritual energetic blueprint.

 

This is a powerful system and one that affects the energy vibration on all levels; increasing the basal vibrational rate of the individual.


This is one of the most popular courses for spiritual development and healing I teach. Particularly among students who feel drawn to the Star People or as I ncarnated starseeds or indigo children.


The seven energy attunements form the course are usually received on consecutive days.

 

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!

How Energy Healing & Reiki can be used to assist those who are terminally ill

image

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.

Energy Healing & Reiki for Stress Management | Boosting Health | Immune System | Chakra Balance | Harmony

Usui Reiki is one of the most popular courses I teach through Mayastar Academy Online Natural Healing & Spiritual Development Courses. It was the first course I began teaching 12 years ago when Mayastar was established and because whenever energy healing is mentioned with regard to its effectiveness (assisting cancer patients or for pain relief), it remains the most “well known” of the systems I teach. It’s probably the one that’s most tested and some medical health practices will refer people for Reiki Healing despite it being considered a bit “new age”. Similar prejudices come up as a reaction against natural healing practices – Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Reflexology for example.

The big difference with Reiki is that it’s accessible and safe for anyone to learn and use. I wouldn’t recommend anyone start trying acupuncture without significant training and experience. But energy healing systems like Reiki provide a structured and specific practice that is not invasive and can be easily taught.

The founder of Usui Reiki included the structured forms of hand position sequences, meditation techniques, symbols and methods for sending healing distantly as well as on the breath. It is a versatile system but it’s structure makes it uniquely useful for beginners because it helps to build confidence in energy work as you go. So your intuition develops without your conscious mind being unoccupied and restrictive.

People learn energy healing for all kinds of reasons. Some wish to learn to provide healing to others; perhaps to pets or family members. Some are looking for ways to develop their spiritual senses and find Reiki an excellent way to do this.

But increasingly, I teach students that are looking at alternative or complimentary therapies to improve their health. Balance their energy to resolve health problems or assist with conventional treatments they are already using.

One of the most significant implications for ill health is stress. We are six times more likely to develop schizophrenia if we live in a city than if we don’t. Modern life has its benefits but it comes with increases in stress experienced by doing things that have never been natural for people to do.

Another example is the blue light from backlit screens on our computers, games, phones and televisions can interrupt our production of melatonin. The hormone that makes us feel sleepy and allows us to sleep. Yet, many have televisions and computers in their bedrooms and use them to “wind down”. Over time we don’t really know how much additional stress to the system could accumulate through this change in sleep quality. But the fact is if we don’t properly our bodies can’t repair properly.

If we have too little sleep on a regular basis there are implications for our health on many levels. Ultimately, if you get less than six hours of sleep in one go regularly, your life expency is reduced. Your risk of heart problems, cognitive problems and problems with immine immune function are increased.

These kinds of stress are often completely ignored. We know that a stressful job or relationship can make us ill. We know what stress feels like. We know that sometimes natural life events may cause us stress and when these happen we tend to try to take care of ourselves – death, changing career, moving home – and many other big changes we will all face at one time or another, will cause stress that we need effective ways to deal with.

Usui Reiki obviously isn’t the only answer. Meditation and breathing exercises are also very good. Changing eating habits to avoid stimulants or sugar can have big effect. Avoiding falling into the trap of relying on detrimental habits like drinking alcohol (which is considered by most people to be an “acceptable” way to deal with stress despite its negative effects on health), is important.

Change in life is stressful to some extent even in the most adaptable and well adjusted people. And change is constant. So the way we deal with experiences of stress needs to be something we make accessible to ourselves consciously and use regularly.

Daily exercise has been shown in clinical trials to be more effective in treating depression than many medications that are prescribed by medical professionals. That certainly doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take them! But it does mean we can make choices to help ourselves and that’s empowering.

Reiki is an excellent option for relaxation, self healing and boosting our immune function. It it useful in relieving stress and the symptoms of stress which can become chronic and debilitating.

My view is that a holistic approach is the best approach. Don’t rule out modern medicine. But do consider your diet and lifestyle. Look at the options you can take and weigh up the negative impact of some “acceptable” habits against the options that don’t come with a negative impact. What’s considered “normal” isn’t always what is natural or right.

It can be hard to break out of habits of thinking and behaviour we have been taught and which are reinforced by those around us. Sometimes being the odd one out means choosing what works for us as individuals despite our peers or negative views of individuality that are quite prevalent in some people’s lives.

If your friends think Reiki is kookie – the domain of hippies and vegans, don’t let it stop you trying it out. Lead by example. Don’t be afraid to try something new. Especially if trying something old isn’t working!

Bathtime Blogging | Aspergers | Social Media | Spiritual Development | Mineral Makeup | Reiki Healing | Meditation | Spells | Mayastar Specials

It’s me! #selfieoftheday showing Mineral Magic Mineral Powder (no concealer or anything…this is just the powder, appied with a kabuki brush over Creme de la Mer), eyebrows defined with wunderbrow & lush cosmetics strawberry bombshell tinted lipbalm. I am kind of testing the mineral magic. I don’t wear make up as a rule but when I do it is usually just powder, lipstain and a pair of sunglasses!

So I am wearing mineral magic when I sleep and over moisturiser, over serum, when exercising. Just doing as much as I can with it to see if it irritates around the eyes, dries the skin around my nose, causes spots etc. So far I absolutely love the stuff but am gonna continue my totally unscientific testing as I want to blog about it. I am sure I am not the only 42 year old woman who can’t be bothered with REAL makeup! So, along with my random blogs I think beauty tips and haircare is something that I consider enough to share with my followers.

image

By the way, I know many people who follow me are current, previous or potential students & clients of www.mayastar.net and www.mayamagickal.net – but I know some follow my artwork too. Or are into similar things (henna, magick, ballet, dance, hiphop, corsetry, preraphaelite art, poetry, tightlacing, meditation – I think some  probably find a bit of a kindred spirit because of my autism – I’m aspergers which is a kind of high functioning autism – or maybe just like my style!), but I really do appreciate it!

On my various social networks I have 29000 followers at the moment and it seems amazing – and flattering in a way too. I’m not a natural when it comes to putting myself out there but because my work is online (teaching distance learning courses for spiritual development & self realisation mostly), it’s important for me to be as accessible as possible while keeping a balance.

I think my students and clients find it reassuring…they are able to get a “feel” for me as a person and my principles…and also my interests. I think that can help connect in a more personal way than I would be able to do in real life. Not because I am antisocial but more because my autism means I relate and communicate far more effectively through writing than through speaking. In most ways I am a natural hermit…but that’s a bonus in the work I do. I also think people feel more able to open up to me in a constructive way when it means they have to consider their words and articulate their thoughts and feelings in a way that encourages selfawareness far more than speaking does.

This can be an essential part of tailoring magickal work for people. I don’t advertise my magickal work as so much comes from recommendations…which is a good thing!  I don’t ask people to review my magickal work because it’s v personal. I am a psychotherapist and qualified in counselling which I think also helps…but I wouldn’t advertise that either. So most online reviews are for my teaching work. There are quite a few on www.linkedin.annalouisemay.net and some of www.maya.mayastar.net (FB) too…and quite a few testimonials on the http://www.mayastar.net testimonials page. But for people interested in attunement work, I think the articles on MS – especially www.mayastar.net/courseswork.htm, help people to understand what I do and whether it’s a good fit for them. Likewise, the articles on Maya Magickal that explain what I do and my experience etc, are helpful to people considering whether my work may assist them in their personal goals.

Social media does seem a strange addition…my blogs are not exactly themed and pretty much cover my hobbies and thoughts. But I do think it’s an added dimension to online presence that’s helpful in a way that’s evolved with my work 🙂

Obviously if you work for yourself, regardless of how vocational you consider that work, advertising, marketing and letting people know you exist is important. An example is, if you wanted a new credit card you would put it in google and find the best fit for you. Whereas my services may sometimes be searched for but more often are found by people who didn’t know this kind of energy work was available – so people more often find me when looking for something similar rather than looking for me.

Gosh…that was a looong blog. I hope it makes some sense. In a nutshell, thank you to those who follow me! I really appreciate it. X

I better sign off…bubblebath blogging and the water is getting chilly…and my Teddy Boy is due for dinner and some Studio Ghibli entertainment soon.

Xxxx
