Emotional Energy

What is Emotional Energy Cleansing?

What are emotional energies, and why do they need to be cleansed away from us? They are a lifetime of beliefs, thoughts, habits, conditionings. They are perceptions of the world, those within it and ourselves, the ‘masks’ we wear to hide who we truly are for fear of ‘insert mask type’ (judgement, ridicule, shame, embarrassment, guilt, trauma…). They become blocked, stuck and stagnant in our energy body, (which is designed to flow freely with ease and comfort keeping us mentally, emotionally and physically well) when we are unable to comprehend the impact an event or trauma had on us, or when we are unable to otherwise deal in a healthful matter with the event or trauma. They are energies of fear, exposure, truthfulness unspoken, but where do they come from?

Little strings of gold

If you imagine yourself as strings, lots and lots of little strings, and each of those strings holds information about you within it. In a healthy, happy human being those strings are filled with joy, happiness, gold even, strings of healthy, happy gold-filled joy. In a person who has experienced trauma from a young age, who wasn’t offered pure unconditional love as a child, who wasn’t accepted for just being themselves, or who received condemnation or punishment for just being themselves - simple commands such as ‘stop doing that’, ‘be quiet’, ‘go to your room’, ‘I’m too busy’, ‘you’re grounded’, ‘did you not hear me’, ‘because I’m telling you to’, those strings become covered in something other than their natural state of gold. A healthy child is allowed to be themselves - themselves being open, accepting of all around them and the expectation of all around them being a community of support and wisdom), they are talked to, explained to, offered a say in their life and how the things around them are and appear to be; ‘would you like to eat this today?’, ‘will you be making noise for a long time do you think, as mummy needs to work soon’. An offering, an exchange, a share of the responsibility. But so few of us receive this environment and in the aforementioned environment, or worse, those tiny little fragile strings filled with gold collect lint, and that lint gets heavier and heavier, thicker and denser over time as lint collects more lint, until all that can be felt, heard and seen on those gold filled strings is thick, dense, heavy layers of lint, no gold, the gold completely hidden underneath all that lint, lint that collected more lint each and every time that very first initial spec of lint was ‘triggered’, causing more and more lint to appear on top of the first piece of lint. Now if you imagine gold as your purest, most truthful self, you as you were born to be, unlabelled, undefined by society or parents or other family members, you in truest form, and the lint as the toxic energies of labelling, judgement, unlovable, unwanted, not good enough. Of school, university, your first job, of embarrassment over not fitting in, wearing the wrong clothes, saying the wrong thing. Of that breakup that caused you so much pain, of the child you’ve never had, the love you’ve never experienced. Loss, guilt, shame, embarrassment, all collecting more of the same type of energy just like that ball of lint upon that gold filled piece of string. This is you, this is how you live life, lint filled, carrying it around with you everywhere, being triggered over and over with each trigger collecting more and more emotional energy, until one day the weight you carry is so heavy upon you, your body starts to creak, pain appears, illness, disease, mental trauma, anguish, grief, loss, you name it, it’s all possible when we carry so much weight upon us. And all because as that little gold-filled piece of string, you were made to feel that the truth of who we were created to be wasn’t right, that you had to conform, contort and twist your true nature into that of the society shaped box everyone else around you had been conditioned to squeeze into. A box so restrictive that no one should ever have been put into it, but that most, if not all of us were at some point in our very early lives by a societal regime that controls and undermines, over values and accepts uniqueness. And so what becomes of that that little piece of gold-filled string who just needed pure unconditional love and acceptance for all that it was and all that it brought into this world, it becomes another little light dimmed by a system of control, unable to just be itself until one day it feels the weight of all of that lint covering it and makes the brave decision to find their inner gold once more. 

So, what do you do with all this heavy dense energy?

You cleanse it away just as you would clean off that little piece of gold-filled string. You dust it down, wipe and wash all the smears and marks away, and you fill it with all the unconditional love and acceptance it ever needed to make it feel wanted, accepted, good enough, and you set in motion the truth of all that you ever were and always will be; on your true path in this life whatever that may be, with a purpose or without, experiencing the highs and lows of life without emotional trigger, without loss or grief. You go on to have those children you’ve always wanted, those partners you never thought you’d find. You stop hiding in that box, under those society approved masks and you go out into this world a different shape to those around you, loud, proud and full of gold! You use that throat chakra over and over, each and every time a truth must be expressed, you cleanse your own energy with each truthful word uttered. You breathe deeply, regularly, you meditate, sit, watch the world go by without judgement or regard, you live deeply, openly, freely, and you express as the unique, always wanted, always loved, always perfectly imperfect large gold-filled string you now are.

If this sounds like you could benefit from looking at yourself as a little gold filled string who needs to find it's inner light again, please do reach out. I offer 30 minute consultations to talk about you, your lint and all that can be done to cleanse, wash and wipe it all away. 

Peace and love

Enlightened Life xxx 

I had never had Reiki before but decided to try it after having tried medications and counselling for my depression and anxiety. After only a few sessions with Kerry I am amazed at how much my depression has lifted and I am no longer held back by anxiety. I would definitely recommend Reiki with Kerry to anyone.


I am amazed at how much better I feel, a lifetime of depression is gone, anxiety and fear a thing of the past, and as a truly amazing side effect the physical pain and discomfort I was in is also completely gone - no more neck brace! I would definitely recommend Reiki and Enlightened Life to anyone, it has given me my life back


Really restorative! Kerry uncovered a lot of current and deeper causes for the way I felt and helped me achieve a much greater sense of self-awareness and clarity. Give it a go!!


Kerry has made significant progress with my lower back and neck pain. The sessions have been undertaken in a wonderful relaxing environment and Kerry is a very warm and responsive Reiki practitioner. Highly recommend!


I have seen Kerry 3 times, and every time has been even more powerful than the last. She has managed to uncover issues in all areas of my life that I didn’t even know where there, so I could finally address them and shed the weight. 10/10!


I was really sceptical about this Reiki stuff, but I was surprised how relaxed I felt after my session with Kerry and have continued to go back as per her treatment plan suggestion. Would recommend anyone to give it a go


Reiki with Kerry is amazing, it's like learning your own internal gossip, that you had no idea was there
