About Epigenetics

A genetic predisposition is the increased likelihood of a person developing a particular disease based on a person's genetic makeup, resulting from specific genetic variations that are often inherited from a parent. This has been the foundation of modern day medicine’s view on disease since its inception in the early 1900’s. However there is a new science, Epigenetics, that states that genes alone are not the cause of whether a person develops their hereditary condition. Epigenetics studies the biological mechanisms that switch genes on and off, and has proven that environment is the core cause of whether a gene is switched on and hereditary disease activated. Essentially the environment in which our cells live is the differentiator between a hereditary condition being activated or not. If that environment is happy, healthy and full of love and positivity, the genes need never be activated. If the environment is one of negativity, of anger for example, then those genes can and will activate. The good news is, this is reversible, they can be switched off again. 

About Fred

When Fred and I first started working together, he was insistent there was nothing going on with him, that all was well. His family thought differently and in fact it was his wife who convinced him to try reiki with me in the hope that it would help bring the husband she knew and loved back. Fred had always been outgoing and full of life and he was funny, with him and his wife always finding something to laugh about together. Since he had retired three years earlier he had lost his zest for life, rising later and later in the morning (something unheard of for Fred who had worked offshore on oil rigs most of his life and was used to being up at the crack of dawn), and sitting around all day long watching TV. He had lost his passion for DIY, something he had enjoyed his entire life, he stopped talking, laughing and going out. Fred was a very angry man - he had always had anger in him but his temper had frayed considerably, he had no patience for anything or anyone, including his grandchildren. Relationships were strained and Fred was feeling it, always being told off for losing his temper or for his terrible and ever worsening memory - something that was also causing concern to his family. Vascular dementia is a hereditary condition in Fred’s family, his mother having suffered. On top of all of this, as if all of this wasn’t enough for Fred, his father had died of a heart aneurysm which Fred had been recently diagnosed with also having.

Fred’s Biology of Belief

When I first scanned Fred I found that his dementia gene had been activated and that his dementia was at an intensity 3/10. This did not seem sufficient enough to be causing Fred’s extreme memory loss but as I am no expert in dementia I had no reason to think there was any other cause for it. It made sense to me, his mother had it, her sisters, a parent and so on back through the ancestral line. Add to this Fred was full of anger - The Mind Body Connection correlates anger with dementia - and it all made sense. Fred also had hereditary genes for a heart condition, a condition his father had died from, which had also been activated.

Over the course of our first few sessions the core energies I picked up from Fred were anger (correlating to his dementia) and vast amounts of feminine wounding energy that was surrounding him. His anger was directed, mainly, toward his mother. She had been cruel to him, abusive both physically and mentally, and had shown him little to no love as a child. The belief system this had instilled in Fred was that he was undeserving of love and affection. A belief that under the science of Epigenetics would activate his hereditary heart condition; love and affection are our heart, if we never received this from the people we expected to, from the one person we should have received it from, and we believe we are not worthy of love, we close our hearts off thus activating the disease.

The Results

Fred was very sceptical of energy work, so much so that I worried he may not complete his course, but he came back every single week, seeing great shifts in how he felt each time. During session 4, having cleared all of Fred’s anger and mother energy, I scanned his dementia intensity and found it to be 0/10. During session 5, having cleared his limiting belief that he did not deserve love of affection, I scanned for his defective heart condition and found that to be at an intensity 4/10 (down from 7/10 only 5 weeks earlier). Although Fred was feeling physically healthier his memory was still quite poor, there had been some improvement in his lethargy and fatigue and general zest for life, but not enough. I scanned once more without all of the negative emotional energy blocking him and found that he had Borrelia, the bacteria causing Lyme disease. This fitted Fred’s lingering symptoms perfectly, and also made sense as Lyme loves a body with negative emotional energy in it. With no negative energy blocking his biofield anymore the Lyme was weak and at an intensity 4/10. With only two daily 30 minute sessions we killed the Lyme entirely and Fred’s memory returned instantly. Fred was up at 8.30am the next morning’s cooking breakfast for him and his wife (much to her disbelief!) he was talking, laughing, taking part in family life again, his passion for DIY returned and he and his wife were out and about again doing the things they had always enjoyed doing together. The experience of this healing journey allowed Fred to realise that he is not the person his mother conditioned him to believe he was, he is a good, kind man who was treated poorly as a child and who did and does deserve so much more.

In Fred's own words…​

“When Reiki was first recommended to me I was very much in denial and refused to even consider letting anyone know my business, however I decided to give it a go after having been persuaded by my wife.

I have worked all my life and always liked to be busy. I loved DIY and always had a project on the go, if not for myself then for a family member. My wife and I loved going out browsing antique shops, going for lunch or just taking our dog on long walks. After I retired I did nothing. I got up late, really late, in the mornings then just sat in the house all day long. DIY was a thing of the past. My temper would flare up for no reason and I was really quite nasty to people, especially close family. My memory was also suffering.

After the first couple sessions with Kerry she was telling me things that I have never discussed with anyone. She made me realise that the cruel way I was treated as a child does not make me cruel. I have had 5 sessions now and the difference in me is amazing. My memory is back to normal, my temper is so so much better and I’m more aware of other people’s feelings. I am a much nicer person.

I no longer lie in bed until almost dinnertime, I’m up early every morning, even weekends. My wife and I have started going on our little trips for lunch and antique browsing. I am looking forward to starting some little DIY projects and getting into the garden once the weather improves.

I feel alive again and can now look forward to enjoying life. Reiki has made all of this possible and I can definitely recommend it to anyone”.My husband retired three years ago and as well as giving up work he seemed to give up life. Before retiring he had been an avid DIY enthusiast, he always had some project on the go, if not for himself then for a family member or friend. We were out every weekend and used to love browsing through antique shops. He was always on the go. Then he retired and just seemed to lose interest in everything, he would get up late and just sit all day long in his chair watching tv. His memory also started to suffer, he couldn’t remember anything I had said to him.
Then he was persuaded to try Reiki, he was sceptical but agreed to give it a chance. He has had a few sessions now with Kerry and the difference is amazing.
He is now out of bed every morning at 8.30 making breakfast. He also quite often cooks dinner as well. The difference in his memory is amazing. Before Reiki I would have to tell him things over and over again as he just couldn’t remember anything. That’s now a thing of the past. We’ve started to go on our antique browsing trips again, having meals out and just enjoying doing things together. He also talks more, laughs more and seems to be enjoying life once again.
Reiki with Kerry has made such a big difference to him, and although he was sceptical at first he now recommends Reiki to other people.

We are awaiting the official results of Fred’s next heart scan showing definitively that his condition has improved...

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
