How Reiki rebirthed me 

When I became attuned to Reiki my life changed exponentially. I had started my path of spiritual awakening and had experienced moments of real understanding about who I was, what this all is, our interconnectedness, but my Reiki attunement took all of that further and connected me to all that I am and in doing so I quickly went from working with Reiki to channelling energy from multiple sources, learning how to decode and guide all energy forms, working out with the parameters of what most people define as ‘normal’ reality and in doing so I healed, cured and repaired my entire body, mind and spirit and connected firmly with the wholeness of Self.

So what is Reiki?

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a soft, gentle, non-invasive hands-on healing technique that uses spiritual energy to treat physical, mental and emotional manifestations without using any kind of pressure, manipulation or even touch if you would prefer not to be touched. Reiki is a holistic system for balancing, healing and harmonising all aspects of both the physical and energetic bodies. Reiki is also used to bring about personal and spiritual growth and awareness for those who are seeking that as part of their journey with the energy.

Reiki is a living creation that works through you using intention; the intention to heal, cleanse and wash away the clutter of life blocking your natural healthful flow.

Where does the name Reiki come from?

Reiki is a Japanese word (pronounced Ray Kee). It is said to translate as ‘universal life force energy’, however a more accurate translation is ‘spiritual energy’ but please do not feel that only those who are spiritual can benefit from Reiki. The energy does not discriminate or judge, it is there for the benefit of all living creatures on earth.

The word Reiki itself is divided into two elements:

Rei which is translated as ‘sacred’, ‘soul’, ‘spirit’, ‘wisdom and knowledge of all the Universe’ or ‘atmosphere of the Divine’. It means to feel something sacred,b transcending your natural state of being. It is a part of the Higher Intelligence that guides the creation and function of the Universe - the all-knowing that understands the cause of all problems, all difficulties and knows how to heal them. The name for this is whichever you feel comfortable with – God, Source, The Creator, The Divine, All That Is.

Ki is translated as the life force energy which flows through every living being – human, animal, plant – and is present in some form in everything around us. Conceptually it embodies that we are all energy, oscillating or vibrating at various speeds and frequencies. It is this vibration or oscillation that becomes stagnant when blocks become present within the energetic bodies and it is this that causes pain, illness and disease. Ki brings new life into tired energetic bodies creating a healthier environment for growth and oneness with All That Is.

What are Reiki’s origins?

Reiki is spiritual energy, direct from the Source of all Life Force and has been with us since the Universe as we know it was created. There are, however, two forms of Reiki used today; Japanese Reiki and Western Reiki.

In Japan, Reiki is any kind of healing using spiritual energy. In the West, it is the healing practice developed by a Japanese Buddhist Priest, Dr Mikao Usui in the 1920s, called Usui Reiki Ryoho, which means Usui Spiritual Energy Healing Method. It is this method that is now widely known as Reiki.

The story of how Mikao Usui (a scholar who taught in a Christian seminary) came across Reiki is this. One day a student challenged him by asking him if he believed in the stories the bible told of Jesus’ healing abilities, and if so, when were they to be taught to heal? As Mikao was a man of honour, it is said that upon realising he could not teach his students this, he dedicated the rest of his life to finding out just how Jesus and The Buddha had been able to work such wonders of healing. He travelled far and wide before ending up in a Buddhist monastery where he was told to meditate to find the answers he was seeking. He decided to begin a 21-day fasting retreat at the top of a treacherous mountain top. It was there cold, weak and close to death that he saw the great light above him and received his ‘spiritual empowerment’ (empower means to ‘give’ or enable’, and spiritual empowerment means to ‘transfer wisdom, insight and ability’ through an inpouring of spiritual energy). In his excitement to descend the mountain, he cut his foot. When holding it in his hands, the bleeding stopped, and the pain disappeared. And there, Reiki, as we know it now, was born.

How does Reiki work?

We talk about energy is many different ways; the calorie content of food, coal, gas, oil, electricity, however the definition of energy is so much broader. Quantum Physics demonstrates that at the quantum level (smallest) everything that exists in the Universe is energy, vibrating or oscillating at different rates.

It has also been established that the Universe is not stagnant, rather it is a dynamic web made up of energies, that everything in it can be described as part of the Zero Point Field, which can be described as ‘an ocean of microscopic vibrations that exist in the space between things.’ In 1944, Max Planck coined the much more accessible phrase of ‘the Divine Matrix’ to describe the origin of everything, from the birth of the stars to the DNA of all living things. It has taken until now for the majority of the scientific world to catch up with him and this profound concept.

What does this have to do with Reiki? At an atomic level, we are all energy. New Science's thinking explains that when we experience good health, it is because we are in a state of perfect subatomic communication between every part of the body. Conversely, when we are in a state of ill health, it is because communication has broken down. Basically, we become sick when our energy waves are out of balance.

A perfect example are the experiments carried out by both the US Army and the Institute of HeartMath (HeartMath Resilience Programs) that vividly demonstrated how everything is connected, and that our thoughts and our emotions (both of which are energy too) have a more significant impact on our health and well-being than previously believed. And as energy cannot be destroyed, this means that all negative thoughts and emotions you have ever had are stored in your body – or energy field. In a simplistic way, Reiki, being Intelligent Energy direct from the Source of Life Force, transmutes that energy from negative to positive, restoring balance and helping to return the body to perfect subatomic communication.

What happens during a Reiki session?

I am different to other Reiki practitioners in that I do not need to be with you, touch you, feel your aura or feel my way through your energetic blocks. I work with energy of a far Higher Intelligence and as such I work remotely, using my intuition, gifts and talents to transcend this dimensional space and time reality, taking your energy with me to be cleansed, cleaned, wiped and transmuted. We then return to this reality where your cells are 'alchemicalised', which is where embodiment of the energy of the Higher Dimensions takes place, bringing about a state of curing and repairing within each cell, system, function and organ within your body and mind.

I am more than aware of how bizarre this sounds to some of you reading this! My results really do speak for themselves though so please take a browse through Love Stories to read all about it all in my client’s own words. 


What does Reiki feel like?

Everyone will have a different experience of Reiki and more so when experiencing my energy. You may feel connected to something far greater than you’ve ever felt before. I have clients who describe blissed out states never experienced before, and these are non-spiritual people who have never meditated, describing states that serious practitioners of meditation experience only after many years of disciplined practise. You will see people and places, memories will arise within you, messages will be passed to you, shown to you, you will be guided by the energies I work with to all that you hold within you causing you pain, illness or disease, and it will show you the path to freedom from it. This is of course if you can relax into the energy and allow it to do this, otherwise you may feel completely blissed out, in tune with the rhythm and flow of the Universe and not much else, which in itself is pretty spectacular.

Most if not all Reiki clients feel the energy shift in their body, experience pain as the energy moves and unblocks, feel light and floaty as if they’ve gone off somewhere else, cry, laugh or feel so relaxed I almost have to carry them off of the table! It is not uncommon for Reiki clients to experience an almost instant change in consciousness, a sudden realisation of the underlying cause of why they are in pain or suffering.

How long does a Reiki session last?

Reiki sessions can vary in length. If we are working with a disease, illness, persistent pain or life block, I will inform you in advance of how many sessions are needed to heal, cure and repair you. Each session will last 1-2 hours, including time for us to talk about the treatment, what came up, what was released and expectations during the week in between treatments. We will also discuss different Reiki tools for you to use during this time to allow you to process the emotional energy being released and the depths of repair taking place.

How do I prepare for a Reiki session?

All I ask you to do is not have taken any stimulants or alcohol, wear comfortable clothing and be friendly and relaxed. The more relaxed your energy is when we start your Reiki session, the less time the energy has to work to calm you and so the more time is spent on your healing, relaxing and rejuvenation.

How much does Reiki cost?

Reiki session fees are all outlined on the Contact & Pricing page and range from £195 to £495. With all first sessions I do a full reading of your energy, pull together any relevant tools for you to work with at home in between sessions and offer a nutritional guide if needed. We also have a one hour chat to go through the energy scan in detail ahead of your first Reiki treatment. 

Where do you offer Reiki healing?

When I work with you, I am not working with your physical body, I am working with your energy, meaning you do not need to be at my physical location. Consequentially I offer Reiki healing via distance healing online using Zoom.

Reiki distance healing is just as effective as face-to-face and has the added benefit of not putting you in a stressful situation as you stay at home, calm and relaxed. 

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
