I am 45 and live in the Sacramento Area. Knowing Kerry and working with her and her gift for seeing has been one of the most positive and rewarding decisions I have made in my adult life.
I first met Kerry several years ago when my wife received a gift certificate from a friend to see her. My wife was impressed by her reading with Kerry and asked me if I too would like to see her, I said yes.
I will start with the most memorable experience with Kerry, the first phone call to schedule an appointment. Right away, Kerry stated that she saw an eagle. This was surprising to me. Since I am Native American and Caucasian, I have followed my native heritage for many years and frequently participate in many types of ceremony across many states. I had recently come back from a Native American ceremony known as the Sundance, which is unknown to most of the world and involves the eagle as an integral part of the ceremony. During the Sundance, I had begun working on a bone carving of an eagle based on my personal vision. I continued to work on this carving after the Sundance and eventually finished it. I have to say at this point I have no carving experience or training but the piece turned out beautifully.
Towards the end of our first meeting together, I told Kerry that I wanted her to hold something, and without looking tell me what she saw. Kerry closed her eyes. I carefully placed the tiny bone sculpture in Kerry's hand. As she held the bone a smile crept on her face. "I'm soaring! I'm an eagle over a great valley, and I'm enjoying myself." Kerry opened her eyes. "I didn't realize that eagles felt such strong joy for the sake of just flying!"
When Kerry opened her eyes I told her to look at the bone and it's carving. She saw that it was a tiny bone, but couldn't make out the carving without her reading glasses. "Is it an eagle bone?" she asked. I smiled.
Since then Kerry and I have visited each other, either on the phone or in person almost on a weekly basis both socially and at a professional level. I value Kerry as a one of my best friends and equally important for her gift as an intuitive with the ability to assist me with some life altering decisions and perspectives. For years I have consulted Kerry in matters related to my profession in the high tech industry, matters on financial investment, and of course relationships. Kerry has taken be through some amazing past life experiences and provided guidance in present and future. Working with her has benefited all my relationships, professional and personal. Career changes, personal health, and general well-being are some of the areas where her work with me has made significant positive changes in my life.
I would recommend Kerry to anyone who is considering consulting an intuitive. Her environment is comfortable, stable and non-threatening. There is nothing commercial about what she does. I have always felt that she has told me what she sees and not I wanted to hear just to validate a decision that I have made or am about to make. It is truly a blessing that I have the opportunity to have Kerry as a fulltime friend, and consultant when needed.
I am a believer of holistic healing and was trained over 20 years ago in both the Western practice of medicine and traditional psychotherapy. Ms. Kerry Van Dyke was enthusiastically recommended to me by one of my AIDS patients in 1998. Since I had seen clairvoyantly-gifted psychics since I was a child, this was not a new experience for me. I was, and continue to be, moved by the guidance and healing she offers me during our meetings. Ms. Van Dyke is a talented spiritual artist and counselor. On average I consult with her once or twice a year, especially when I find myself at major crossroads for life-changing decisions or events. She usually clarifies for me the intuitive feelings I have already had about my choices and upcoming decisions. Thus, I have left from our sessions with a bolstered sense of clarity and confidence as I move forward through life's many challenges. She is professional and yet also is warm and personal, like a dear, old friend. I have recommended that colleagues and friends of mine consult with her and many of them have also been pleased. She has a calm approach that I believe anyone would find, in itself, healing. I am grateful to have her as part of my support system.
I met Kerry at the Folsom Renaissance Faire in October of 1995 through a mutual acquaintance, Adel. Kerry stopped by Adel's Egyptian art booth to say hello. Adel had mentioned Kerry's amazing clairvoyant ability and since I had never had a reading before, I asked her if she wouldn't mind giving me one.
I didn't have any idea as to what to expect. But, taking me by the hand, Kerry closed her eyes and began revealing information so compelling to me that I could not help but accept and identify directly with her comments. The first thing she said to me was, "Oh, you're a real mother aren't you." I found this rather odd. But she proceeded. She told me that she saw me kneeling beside a strangely shaped crib. She said she had never seen such a crib before and that it had a cloth covering, and that I was mournfully kneeling before it. I kept thinking that she was referring possibly to an experience I had had when I was a child and lived in the town of Cedar Lake, Indiana. But she maintained that it was not this life or that place. Then, she looked at me intently. "You were just in England, weren't you?" she stated. I sat mesmerized. I had indeed been to England within the past few years, but hadn't told her or Adel. "You were expecting it to be different. It wasn't what you thought it would be." This was remarkable to me. I kept seeing the strange steel-blue-gray of London streets and thinking "this is not what I expected!"
In any case, by the end of Kerry's reading I had learned that the child that I mourned over had been my baby and had died of the plague. The time was that of King Charles and my husband had gone off to battle in the civil war then raging in England. I would never see him again and I had taken on the overwhelming anguish of guilt for the loss of our child. I traveled the country searching many different religions for solace, but found none. I ended up leaving the village and coming across the sea to the New World.
So much of the reading rang true. I even told her, "That explains everything." I had spent most of my childhood and adult life taking care of children and feeling a sense of guilt that no matter what I did it wasn't enough. I even maintained the peculiarly dark feeling as a young girl that the worst thing that could happen would be the loss of a family line because the potential father had been killed off in war. I had also belonged to many different religions looking for a peace of mind that escaped meŠ very strange! Kerry's reading clarified my struggles in this life and her continued counseling has led me to other developments that have advanced the spiritual influence on my life.
Kerry and I both visited the Koyosan Temple in Sacramento for the first time in 1997 to listen to a Tibetan Lama speak of his experiences and of Buddhism in general (as it turns out, this was the very same temple in which Kerry and her husband Spencer were married in August of 2000). By August of 1996, I had begun assisting Kerry by editing her book, at that point titled A Window in Time. As a consequence, Kerry Van Dyke became a close and cherished friend of mine; and our prolonged association has had a profound impact on my life. I have experienced the unexpected with her: an awakening of my spirit, and a relation to the timeless.
