Tom Maples is the publisher of the Tennessee Valley edition of Natural Awakenings magazine and co-facilitator of the Huntsville Star Knowledge Circle. He is a member and serves on the Board of the Light of Christ Center. Tom has a broad interest in all things spiritual and metaphysical, with a particular emphasis on the healing arts. He has been an avid researcher of energy work and energy healing in all of its various forms, along with spiritual practices such as meditation, mantra chanting, toning, and shamanic healing. He has researched many different expressions of spiritual belief and practice in many of the world’s wisdom traditions. He sees the future of spirituality being an alchemy of ideas from many different traditions, coalescing around a few universal core principles, and focusing on the evolution of humans into luminous beings of Light with advanced energetic, spiritual and psychic abilities.  

As the earth energies and vibrations keep rising, more and more human beings are going to gain greater abilities to directly experience spiritual and psychic phenomena. I see the future of Spirituality as being one of direct experience for everyone with the Light, with Source, with higher dimensional beings and with spiritual energy and psychic powers. There will be ultimately no need for belief systems based on blind faith, theological argument or speculation of any kind about the nature of non-physical reality because the universal spiritual force will be readily experienced by everyone. As a result, spirituality will increasingly become Universalist in nature, meaning that many of the teachings, concepts, spiritual entities and ascended beings of many of the world’s great spiritual traditions will be referenced interchangeably for the truth associated with them.

The Star Knowledge material and the Huntsville Star Knowledge Circle is an excellent example of these trends, offering a powerful direct experience of spiritual energy and communication with higher dimensional entities, along with a Universalist interpretation of everything, drawing on the ideas and the voices of spiritual beings from all spiritual traditions.


The Star Knowledge Symbols were brought to a Lakota elder named Standing Elk on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in 1995. He reports being visited by what he describes as Star Beings from Orion. They gave him a metal bar engraved with 22 symbols, and they told him that each symbol represented the energies of Universal and Spiritual Laws that were gifts given to each human being and encoded in our DNA by Creator. These gifts can be activated by meditating on each symbol, especially in ceremonial sacred space. They all relate to spiritual and metaphysical knowledge, powers, abilities, and responsibilities of ascending humans, and are given to us to assist us as we evolve into Genuine Human Beings. Standing Elk, who was later renamed Chief Golden Light Eagle, then convened a group of elders that included Grandmother SilverStar to begin a year-long series of sweat lodge ceremonies, using the traditional Lakota spiritual methodology for contacting the higher realms, in order to gain further insight into each of the 22 symbols and their associated Universal and Spiritual Laws. Over the year of sweat lodge ceremonies, the group of elders was visited by what Chief Golden Light Eagle describes as 11th, 12th, and 13th dimensional beings, some of whom were Archangels and Ascended Masters associated with different spiritual traditions whom many of us recognize (St. Germain, Melchizadek, Archangels Michael and Gabriel, Buddha, Quan Yin, Krishna, Quetzalcoatl, Corn Woman, and Immanuel who is Jesus) along with many other ascended beings whose names are not as well known. Other types of beings who visited the group include animal spirits, Earth elementals or devas (“the Holy People of the Land”), Cosmic Beings, and Galactic Beings, such as Pleiadians, Sirians, Arcturians, Andromedans and other spiritually advanced ETs from around the Universe (the “Star Nations”).



Each of these entities delivered a message containing insight into the complex properties and nuances of one of the 22 Symbols and their associated Universal and Spiritual Laws. Grandmother SilverStar was appointed scribe for the group, and wrote down all of these messages. The result is the text that we use in our monthly Star Knowledge Circles. There is a Star Knowledge calendar that tracks moons rather than months (there are either 12 or 13 moons in a Gregorian calendar year). Each moon is associated with a Symbol, and each month on or around the full moon the Huntsville Star Knowledge Circle meets to anchor and activate the appropriate Symbol. We call sacred space in a traditional shamanic fashion, then talk and read aloud about the Symbol, meditate as a group upon it, and then talk about our insights, still following a ceremonial protocol (“talking feather”). By doing this each moon, we are calling in tremendous spiritual energy and raising the vibration, not only of ourselves, but for the surrounding area.


Everybody who has been to one of the circles will confirm that the energies are incredibly intense. Many people in the circle have incredibly vivid and intense visions during the meditation, and some connect directly with the higher beings who are the Guardians for each Symbol, or they connect with their own guides or other entities and receive important information meant for them or a message for others or for the entire group.

The messages in the Star Knowledge book itself is not any sort of dogma but rather is a Universalist association of connected ideas, truths, concepts, insight and advice that is very much open to additional spiritual interpretation by anyone. So essentially everybody in the circle gets a chance to teach, and it is a beautiful thing to see and be a part of.
