Mayastar Academy was founded in 2004 to provide distance energy healing and spiritual development courses. All attunements are individually prepared by Maya using the Orb of Life/Chi-Ball method which allows students to receive their attunements at their own rate. You can read about how attunements work here.


When you order from Mayastar, your course materials are sent to you by email within 12 hours (usually within minutes!). And attunements are sent within 3 days. An Certificate of Achievement is issued when your attunements are set up. You have the option to upgrade to a Diploma Certificate through payment of the administration fee of £20 & the submission of a 300-word essay about your chosen modality, and 3 case studies to demonstrate your experience and understanding. You can read about how Mayastar courses work here.


Maya's "Book of Inspiration" is supplied to all students as part of the study materials for every Mayastar course. This collection of essays includes detailed guidance on personal spiritual practice, energy anatomy, prayer, meditation, quantum healing, the structure & hierarchy of the spiritual dimension, the Age of Aquarius, light-beings & guides, angels, the Harmonic Convergence & much, much more! This 220-page eBook provides a grounding in spiritual philosophy & practice that gives beginner a broad base of understanding & offers inspiration, support and guidance.

I (Maya)  have been practicing energy work, ritual healing, magick & shamanism for over 30 years. If you would like the benefit of my expertise in selecting the courses and options that would best support and enhance your spiritual journey, please email me detailing your current level of experience and spiritual goals & I'll be happy to make tailored recommendations.

If you have no experience with energy healing or spiritual practice, I recommend you start your journey with Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki. Usui Reiki is the optimal foundation for all energy healing work! Its structured techniques support beginners and provide a framework to build upon in the future. Options that combine extremely well with Usui Reiki include: Ethereal Crystals Healing, Violet Flame Attunement, Archangelic Flames, Crystal Rose, Rainbow Sequence Healing and Kundalini Reiki. You can read about these options here. As an illustration, a personalised package that included all 7 of the courses recommended above, would be £270 instead of £360 (saving £90 on the individual fees). To take a personalised package of these courses or your own selection, please email me.

The Universal Life Church


I have been a member of the Universal Life Church (ULC) for many years as an ordained Minister of Sacred Light. 


Although Mayastar doesn't teach religion, when you work with spiritual energies for healing work or self development, you are bound to ask questions and hopefully a deeper relationship with the divine will grow from this too.  The ULC may be able to help you in this through some of their inspirational and thought-provoking publications and courses; and all are invited and encouraged to become ordained ministers...and to ACT on that ministry because a call to ministry, is a call from the divine and this is something that should always be taken seriously.


Unlike many churches that claim to be 'non-denominational' (but are in fact 'protestant' and 'Christian'), ULC is truly non-denominational and open to Christians, Pagans, Wiccans, Chaotes, Jews, Quakers, Lightworkers, Sikhs, Muslims, Mormons, Buddhists, Hindus...EVERYONE! You don't need to have a 'religion' to belong to the church; it is open to everyone!  Nor do you have to give up a religion to become a member of the ULC.  Everyone is welcome and considered and equal and valid member of the church.


ULC don't have a 'catechism'...just one very simple 'doctrine': That each person should "do what is right" - and that "Every person has the natural right (and the responsibility) to peacefully determine what is right."


ULC upholds that every person is empowered by 'God' to interpret what is right for themselves, as long as it doesn't interfere with the rights of others.  The church does not stand between you and your relationship with the divine; but rather encourages you to develop this relationship.


You are the master of your life and your path should be determined by you and your God (whatever name you know him/her by) and not by any other authority. If you trust and love God you will always endeavour to do what is right.  


I feel the ULC really empowers the individual and that this philosophy is in-keeping with Mayastar's philosophy as well as my own personal religious beliefs. 


History of the Universal Life Church

Founded in 1959 by Reverends Kirby & Lida Hensley, the ULC is a non-denominational church with congregations and individual members, of all religions and walks of life, all over the world; it's said 'the sun never sets on the Universal Light Church!'. Although much of their work is carried out online, they do have churches all over the world too. But their main headquarters in Modesto, California - where they are happy to welcome visitors should you ever be in the area!


The church is classified as a non-profit religious organisation.


The message of the founders is clear...


OUR GOAL - A fuller life for everyone

OUR OBJECTIVE - Eternal Progression

OUR SLOGAN - To live and help live

"Universal Understanding and brotherhood will bring peace"

What is a minister?

A minister is a 'servant' of 'God'.  Many of my students are Lightworkers, and most often refer to 'God' as 'The Light'; but whatever name you choose isn't of consequence.  We are dealing with the same Universal Life Force that we are all a part of.


ULC is a unique church in that the individual minister is as important as the President of the Board of Directors.  There is no hierarchy; and again, this fits so well with the philosophy of Mayastar and of the Lightworker.


Why should I become a minister?


If you feel called to ministry, then the ULC believe you have already been ordained by God and that your should be free to minister to others and to do what is right as the 'spirit' guides you.


The church can also protect some spiritual practitioners who are in US states that only allow energy healing if it is part of 'religious ministry'; as a non-denominational church, this allows energy healers and spiritual therapists in the US to work legally by being ordained through the ULC.  


In addition to this, acknowledgement of your sense of Universal community with those of a like mind, striving for a better world is a wonderful reason.  And if you feel called to be 'ordained', then 'God' (by whatever name you know him) has already ordained you.


A minister strives to do the work of any 'Lightworker'; to show love, compassion, trustworthiness and kindness and to inspire these qualities in those around them in order to help them grow spiritually and in happiness.


One of the greatest gifts a minister can offer is knowing how to deal with a situation as it arises; to take on the role of advisor, counsellor, confidante, friend, father/mother, brother/sister, peacemaker, comforter and so on. 


The minister who is capable of ascending in mind, thought and spirit above the cares of the world is capable of lifting others.  And the love given in time of need is not rejected or forgotten.


I will summarise this introduction by quoting the founder of the church, Rev. Kirby Hensley:


"We are a Universal Church.  We have people from all walks of life and from all religions.  We now have churches established all over the world.  The sun never sets on the Universal Life Church.  This is why we call it a Universal Church.


We have within this church a very liberal type of religion, but we also have conservative types of people.  I have never met a person who disagrees with our doctrine.  We feel our doctrine is Universal.


I believe that every person is a part of the Universal Life, and when people become conscious that they are a part of this Universal Life, they will look for people who are like-minded.


We are sure that the Universal Life Church is one that satisfies the majority of people.  We are searching and studying to find a way that all people can come together as One and work for the good of all people."


Universal means 'everywhere', Life means to 'Live' and Church means 'Spiritual Body'.  Everywhere life is, the Universal Spirit is there too.  Reverence for this life (even if you are not of a particular faith) comes through the knowledge of who and what we are and our relationship with God/The Universe/The Universal Light.  If you feel drawn to connect with others who of a similar mind to you, please visit the Universal Life Church website today...
