What is Emotional Energy Cleansing?

I spent many years of my own chronic illness, convinced that my pain was physical. That something was wrong with my body, that something in me had broken. When emotional energy was first mentioned to me it didn't resonate at all, my body was falling apart and that had to be physical. I kept looking for the physical cause, the physical cure, but it never came. 

It never came because it never was and it was only when I started to remove the emotional energy and the negative limiting beliefs I had about myself that I began to feel well again, my energy levels increased and the physical parts of my body began their repair.

Human beings are emotional beings

Human beings are made up of energy. We have an energy body that just like our physical body can get muddy and dirty from life. We move energy around our bodies every second of the day; breathing, eating, laughing, crying. How many times have you been having a bad day when someone or something has made you laugh so hard that you instantly felt better? Or where you've cried yourself into am easier emotional state? Moving energy is not just good for us, it's necessary for our physical and mental health. Emotions are energy too - energy in motion. When we deal with an emotion in a healthy manner; laugh, cry, scream, rage or vent, it moves and flows freely through us. When we ignore an emotion, when we can't deal with it or don't want to deal with it, it gets stuck, and stuck energy causes blockages causing stagnant energy to accumulate until eventually our natural flow comes to a stop. When this happens, aches and pains, fatigue, sleep problems, gastro problems can all start, and then, the more we ignore it all, the more trouble it causes, illness, disease and mental health issues, sexual fatigue and dysfunction.

We are 'programmed' from a young age to hide our emotions 

We are taught from a young age to ignore strong negative emotions; 'what are you crying for? I'll give you something to cry for', 'get up and stop crying, it wasn't that bad', 'go to your room, I don't want to listen to you anymore', 'stop complaining, there are plenty children out there who aren't as lucky as you'. Whilst there is never any blame, and our parents were only doing what they knew and what they thought best, ignoring strong emotions is the worst thing we can do for our health & well-being.

An ignored emotion will become the Captain of your ship

Trapped negative emotions dictate our thoughts, our beliefs and behaviours, they essentially take over the driving seat of us whilst we are relegated to the back seat. They shape our belief system: who we believe we are, what we believe our worth to be, whether we believe we ARE worth something, whether we are enough. We are conditioned to believe that we don't deserve (one study showed that the average toddler was told ‘no’ on average 400 times a day versus ‘yes’ only 20 times), that we’re not good enough (how many times were you asked ‘who do you think you are?’ as a child?), we’re taught not to think for ourselves (‘just do as you’re told’) and most of us never learn how to express this emotional pain. This conditioning teaches us to suppress rather than process and so negative emotions get trapped inside of us. We start to carry the burden of lack; a lack of love, a lack of abundance, a lack of passion or happiness, we hate ourselves, blame ourselves, get angry at ourselves and the world. We have to work so much harder than others, and that starts to build resentment. Things don’t come easily to us because we are controlled by fear and insecurity and eventually, this starts to manifest as pain, mental / emotional illness and chronic disease.

Negative emotions disrupt our mental balance, throw our bodies out of balance and stop us from finding peace of mind. When we restore emotional balance, our lives change in ways we never thought possible.

The Mind Body Connection

In its simplest form, when you think happy, positive thoughts, you create a state of mind and body that supports ease, when you come at life with a negative viewpoint, fuelled by fear, anger, self-blame to name but a few, you create a state of mind and body that supports dis-ease. We are not autonomous machines, we are unique emotional beings who need to express rather than suppress. 

Does any of this sound familiar?

If you are unsure if your situation could be caused by emotional energy, then consider if any of the following relate to you?

Reiki can break the cycle

You don’t need to feel like this. Suppressing your true feelings, who you truly are, putting on a brave face, a show, is exhausting and this exhaustion takes a toll on you. Fatigue follows pain, which is followed by illness, then depression and anxiety, and the cycles go on. I am here you help as you don’t have to live like this. You can change it all, take control of your thoughts, emotions, health and life.

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
