I've called on Ryka's talents several times for insights to my work situation and re-settling after lots of personal change & disruption. She's helped me find words where I had none of my own or needed a new set of them to improve outcomes. Ryka's guidance is both practical and direct, which suits me well. You can trust her to call it as it is. True to her integrity - if she's not detecting a strong signal, she'll tell you that too. Whether you feel the world is on top of you, or you are on top of the world - Ryka is the right next step.

The first time I visited with Ryka, I was hesitant about the whole experience, what to expect, what to believe, how to listen to the advice I was given. What struck me as awe-inspiring, was the amount of emphasis on certain aspects of my life I was ignoring, but were most undeniable.

She helped me see problem areas within my career, and that wasn’t even on my list of topics to discuss. Her perception and guidance really helped me take hold of these difficult areas and reroute my life in ways that have strengthened me. The symbolic images she was given regarding aspects of my life still blow me away, but more so, have brought an awareness about myself and helped me to step out of my box, and see myself in a bigger, healthier way.

She also picked up on problem areas within my writing, which was another area I wasn’t expecting to discuss! I highly recommend anyone visiting with Ryka about any part of your life. You might be surprised to discuss something you weren’t expecting!

During my reading, which was so spot-on, Ryka was able to get to the root of an issue that had been plaguing me my whole life. I feel confident that I could never have resolved it on my own; I'd been working on it for nearly 10 years, and even therapists and psychologists couldn't help me make the shift. In one evening with Ryka, this issue was cleared. Now, my stress level is down probably 70%, and life is just easier since I feel so much calmer. I even experienced a family emergency a couple days later and was able to handle everything with strength and grace. She is AMAZING. I will definitely work with her again and recommend her to anyone.

I rarely get readings from others, and when I do, it's because I want someone reliable to give me the truth that I need to hear. Ryka is a truth speaker! Our session answered all of my questions, set me back on track, and gave me the clarity I had been looking for but couldn't quite seem to get on my own. Ryka is one of the very few psychics that I whole-heartedly recommend.

I met Ryka a few years ago and have called on her several times since. I wasn't sure what to expect at first, but quickly realized that she was clearly gifted, speaking about things she couldn't have otherwise known! She has helped me tremendously in my personal and business life. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Joe Casey
Clearwater, Florida

I discovered Ryka a few months ago and have seen her several times now. She is both gifted and kind, and shares from Spirit what is truly meant to heal. Although I did not intend to see her for therapy, much of what we have addressed is certainly beneficial in that area. She even called once to inform me privately of a medical issue I needed to address, and with her help it's now gone. Many thanks for sharing your gifts with us, Ryka.

Barbara Roeling
Austin, Texas

Ryka really helped me see how I can clear up many obstacles that have been keeping me from my full potential. I look forward to implementing some changes with her words of wisdom helping me along the way. Ryka has a gift and is serious about shining light on your path and helping you recognize and clear obstacles.

I had a reading today with Ryka and it was such a good experience! I felt like she lifted me up out of my dark hole and set me on my road, going again in the right direction. I needed some insight into health problems with myself and my son and she got us pointed in a new way to solve some lifelong issues. I was depressed about several other issues in my life and she helped me see how my past was still my present. (Read my mom!). I will be calling again!

Sara Nielsen
Houston, Texas

A year after my husband died from cancer, I had a reading with Ryka. At the time, I felt like I was drowning in my emotions- a sea of glass shards shredding constantly. Ryka's guides helped me let go of all the what ifs,
would haves, could haves & might have beens. Ryka channeled my guides to help me understand there was nothing that I could have done to change what happened. As a result of my reading, I have been able to let go of the pain, to live my own
life & be open to new possibilities.

Karla Seidel
Winona, Minnesota

I went to Ryka for a reading trying to gain wisdom after a very cathartic experience. I was amazed at how open I was to the experience and how much territory we covered during our session. Birth experiences, life experiences, current loves and losses were all explored and common themes were uncovered. She really did lead me to see my own pain and the pain of others as well as begin the healing process. I took notes during the reading and keep coming back to them and what I learned. I highly recommend Ryka and look forward to our next session.

V. Ford

I had my first session with Ryka yesterday, as I drove into her neighborhood I had this calming feeling move over me and the sensation that I was visiting an old friend- this continued as I was greeted by her wife Crystal and comfortably accepted into their home.... As our session started I became very aware of how gifted this woman is.. Subtle thoughts of mine would develop as she'd receive messages from my spirit guide and as our session grew I realized she was acknowledging the part of me that didn't want to accept or trust my intuition... Before arriving I had this full on desire to get gigantic revelations on the spirit world and she was able to bring me back to.... "but baby, you're not healed.... you're doing great, you're growing... but you have to love yourself first. Do you need to know how your pancreas works? do you need to tell your lungs to breath...so lets just handle the biggest issue today, you." She together with her gift of communicating with my guides, was able to ground me, give confidence, along with the guidance needed during a struggling time in my life. I will continue to call upon Ryka, as I know that she genuinely has helped bring me clarity. I would highly recommend this gifted and compassionate reader of truth to anyone needing guidance in all parts of life.

Austin, Texas

Ryka is truly AWESOME! She has many unique gifts, but her ability to quickly connect with you and determine what is causing you to be stuck, indecisive or just overhwelmed is AMAZING! She then works with you to help you heal the things that are causing you to not be able to move forward. With her guidance and expertise, I was able to work through a very old issue in my life and make HUGE progress in one visit, and I had been working on this same situation for many years, and never was able to make much progress. Her gentle, healing approach gave me the confidence and courage to make some key changes in this relationship and my life. I would absolutely recommend Ryka to anyone who is ready to get “unstuck”. THANK YOU so much!

Darlene Templeton
Austin, Texas

I had my session with Ryka today and I feel so back on track and peaceful. I am grateful to know that when I hit those "roadblocks" and confusing twists and turns in my life, I have someone I can call to help me navigate successfully through them. She helped me see where a situation I have felt some responsibility in and obligation with is not my responsibility at all. Whew! One less responsibility. Thank you, Ryka!

Anita Lane
Austin, Texas

I called Ryka when I realized that we had an uninvited visitor in our home. Our fire alarms would go off in the middle of the night, we always felt a presence in the home, and the night before I called, I actually saw an apparition. I was not sure what I thought about my experience or if a medium could help, but I called first thing in the morning. Ryka and Crystal
came to our house that night. They were able to connect to the spirit in our home (an old friend) very quickly. I was stunned at what she was able to tell me about my friend, stuff that she would not have known and I did not tell her.
She and Crystal were eventually able to get our friend to move toward the light, and our entire home instantly felt brighter. After our spirit visitor had left, Ryka spent some time with me. She helped me to understand that I am where I am supposed to be and quickly identified some ways that I can improve myself. I felt so much lighter after speaking with her, and for the first time I really felt like I knew what I needed to do to find my happiness. Crystal used her extraordinary gift to help my husband and I rid us of some negative energy that has been hanging around for a while. We both felt extraordinary after Ryka and Crystal left. Our home felt warmer, we both felt lighter, and we both knew what we needed to do to get closer to our happiness.

Courtney Ashenbeck

Thank you, Ryka. You have an amazing gift and I received more than I imagined from our session. The guidance I received not only helped me release situations that I had no idea were holding me back but helped me step back into my personal power. Amazing!

Janis C.

I had a two hour session with Ryka yesterday. It's the nature of these things that one reaches out for a consultation when things are not going quite as one wants or expects. At that moment one is looking for someone to say it's going to be alright.
This is where Ryka's real strengths lie: she is a wonderful therapeutic counselor. She has a lot of good advice for how to best see and work with your issues. She is an excellent listener and has a lot of experience with people who are struggling through transitions. The take-away piece for me is that we are all fully in control over what awaits us and much of it is guided not by Fate but by our attitude and our daily actions. One needs to be emotionally prepared for the outcomes we are hoping for and it would appear many of us are not and hence we get in the way of our own best interests.

Super interesting and I would certainly recommend her for people hoping to shed some light on what makes them really tick.

Lucy Price
Austin, Texas

I had a phone reading with Ryka and was amazed at how accurate the information was that came across. Ryka is so very gifted and she obviously loves what she does. She was able to connect with my spirit guides to communicate important messages to me from the other side. What I appreciated the most was Ryka's honesty and straight-forwardness. There were times when she would ask a question and I had a canned answer, and she called me out with the TRUTH from my spirit guides. I hadn't even realized I was giving canned answers and not speaking from the heart until she started calling me out. The truth can be difficult to digest sometimes, but it's always for the better and I am so much happier in my life now because of it. She has empowered me to be exactly who I am and I am so grateful for her time and gifts. Much love Ryka, I can't wait to work with you more in the future. Thank you for sharing who you really are!!

Today went from good to better! I had the a Reading with Ryka and wow, what a difference I felt! She confirmed what I had hidden in my heart. Her gift is a blessing and for that I am grateful. Now I can walk and not carry so much in my back. God has a Plan for me and I will follow his will. Thank You Ryka, Many blessings.

Brian Mateus Ramirez
Austin, Texas

Ryka has an amazing ability to connect to the spirit world. She said things to me only someone who truly knew me would know; and my spirit guides know me as no one else does. I went in with specific questions and received answers to help heal my physical body. That was great but then it got better; spirit took us to a place of emotional healing. Spirit gave information that helped me heal an emotional hurt that I just couldn't understand until they explained what went on with a person in my family that I was unable to forgive. With this new knowledge I could now have compassion for my abuser and forgive him for his transgressions. If you are seeking the truth and insight then you should have a session with Ryka.

Sandi B.
Austin, Texas

Ryka has an amazing amount of empathy and compassion. Conversation with her alone is gratifying in the sense that even without having known her, I knew she was already my friend! My session with her brought about powerful insight as well as knowledge that those who are no longer with us in human form, are truly amongst us via a higher energy, supporting us and guiding us in ways where if we follow our intuition- [they] will show through clearly. Thank you Ryka! Thank you for your guiding words and light.

Laurie LaRossa Cornell
Petoskey, Michigan

Ryka is amazing!!! She is definitely the real deal. She was accurate on what she was telling me. She knew things about me and my loved ones that passed on that only I knew. I was in total shock! She is worth a phone call or visit. She helped me find closure on something that has been bothering me for 12 years. She related quite a bit of messages to me from my guides and from my loved ones that passed on. It was something that I REALLY needed to hear. I will be contacting her again when the need arises

Diana E.

Austin, Texas

My reading with Ryka was the equivalent of having a team of personal life coaches. She provided information and perspective that I needed instead of focusing on what I thought I needed. The feedback was thought provoking and directed me back towards things I had drifted away from. She helped me to re-phrase, re-focus, and re-frame particular aspects of my daily life.

Omaha, Nebraska

Having known Ryka for a few years, I trusted my reading would be exactly what I needed. I was unsure of what to expect and yet once we got started things just starting flowing. I never expected to get a lifetime worth of clarity in just 2 hours. It was the perfect voice at the perfect time. The reading left me with so much weight lifted that I almost felt like I was floating. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for clarity and balance.

I wanted to thank you for a awesome reading yesterday. It was very heartfelt. I am glad things came up in the reading I was not expecting to talk about but it needed to come to light . Also thank you for giving me closure to something that has been haunting me for years , and now I am able to let it go. I look forward to working with you in the future. I wanted to let you know when I told my mom about the "clicking" sounds she just cracked up laughing. I feel that not only have you touched my life but you also touched my mother's. Thank you again

I believe everything happens for a reason and always at the right time and space for each of our individual journeys. My reading with Ryka was no exception, it came at just the right time. She is a genuine, caring person that helped me in so many ways. I went in with a list of questions, hoping for some guidance from my guides and to connect with loved ones I have lost, but also kept in mind, ultimately it was best to have no expectations. I knew whatever I needed to know at this particular point in my journey was what would come through and it was, plus so much more.

Not only did Ryka connect and deliver messages from my guides, she also gave me practical advice and taught me techniques that are helping me every day. I have found out along my path that I am sensitive to energies which has caused me unnecessary stress at times. She showed me how to ground myself and how to protect myself from harmful energies as I go about my daily life.

It has only been about two weeks since my reading with Ryka and her wisdom combined with the wisdom of my guides have already made a huge impact in my life. I will definitely set up another reading with her as well as recommend her to my friends.

Thank you Ryka for sharing your gift with the world. You truly are a gifted medium, psychic and teacher.

Kristen J.
Austin, Texas

I didn't really know what I was expecting when I called and scheduled a reading with Ryka. I called on a whim, got ahold of her right away, and scheduled our call. I panicked after we hung up, and throughout the week with what do I ask? What do I think I am going to get out of this? Am I sure I believe in this? WHAT AM I DOING???

Thankfully, our appointment rolled around, I had a "list of questions" I got from Google (they were my takes on questions, but with guidance of what to ask) and we started. Turns out, I used about 3 of the questions, but it flowed, and I started asking questions from the heart, and based on what was coming out. I got clarity and emotional healing on the biggest issue I had been dealing with, learned more about myself, I feel am more in tuned with myself overall, and was able to discuss things that I never thought I would discuss with someone else- now that was interesting!

I walked away feeling lighter, more guided, having better clarity on things and really felt like I was motivated to work through things. None of this would have been possible without Ryka, and it was amazing how comfortable she made me feel during our call. It was wonderful and I will definitely be doing it again. I would highly recommend her for a reading - whether struggling, needing guidance, or just wanting to get a reading.

Cynthia T.

The reading with Ryka provided me with profound peace and direction.
I felt totally at ease and many of the readings' elements came true... in a very positive way.
I highly recommend her and I will schedule readings again.

It was out of funny coincidence I found Ryka, who apparently had already read for some of my family members! I went in to my session ready and open to receive whatever answer was given to me. I cannot believe the emotional break throughs I was able to overcome. Through Ryka I was able to discover myself and develop more confidence, in myself and my abilities. It was nice to experience something different and more personable than the typical psychic reading. Her intuition is spot on and she hears very clearly, be prepared to be taken back at times! I would like to say thank you Ryka, for helping me step out of my shell and become who I am!

Nathan Millard
Austin, Texas

Ryka's reading came at just the right time in my life. She gave me the answers and guidance I needed to make certain choices regarding my future. Three different times in my reading with her the hair on my entire body stood up. That was proof to me that there was a true spirit connection. Unlike other experiences I have had with psychics, Ryka provided to me how
to change my outcome instead focusing on what the outcome would be in the future. Everything she had to say, I NEEDED to hear!  Thank you!

Cortney H.
Austin, Texas

Thank you Ryka! Started the conversation with trepidation, confusion & was lost, but after chatting with you....saw life with new eyes & new heart. Took your thoughts and words and applied them to my turmoil - and am now at peace. You're the best! Thank you!

Through a chance and serendipitous meeting, I recently connected with Ryka. Little did either of us know what direction that meeting would take us, but the deep trust and rapport we both felt was undeniable. Ryka is authentic to the her core and it ripples through to you whether you've physically met or not. Typically, I rely on my own intuition and wisdom for guidance, but I experienced a strong pull to have a reading with Ryka, in particular around some significant decisions and opportunities that I wanted clarity on. Ryka shed light on these areas and took it even deeper, uncovering some blockages that were keeping me stuck. She also revealed where I need to be focusing my energies in relationships, including my kids, that was very insightful and helpful for improving some current challenges. This whole experience was unlike any other. I trust Ryka for guidance, and would refer her to my friends and family anytime.

Jennifer Horton
San Diego, California

Ryka is an amazing gift to all of us and an incomparable reader. Her reading infused my life with new energy and confirmation of much that I already knew, needed to revisit and rediscover. I highly recommend her. She is fabulously accurate. So happy I found her.

Kate Rose Underwood
Austin, Texas

Thank you Ryka,  Just to let you know I have never thought about going to a psychic, medium, reader, or what ever they call themselves. For some part because they have a bad reputation for smoke and mirrors, and scamming. Mostly because I rely on God for everything. That is more for others. I do believe that some are for real though. Only because of my sister. She has told me and proved to me things that I cannot logically explain. She also said she can't see things for herself.

So when she found you, she said she knew you were the real thing. I didn't hear the end of your and her meeting for days. Then she finally convinced me to call you. My life was going unbelievably well so I really didn't feel the need to call. But I'm glad I did. I am a self improvement junkie. So when you helped me see something in my past that I never knew was there blocking my ability to have good strong and balanced relationships. I was grateful.

I took what you said to heart and "sold the horse". It helped me to be there for others. It also helped me to read the other person so I could be more receptive and actually be there for them. It made a profound difference in all my relationships in just one meeting with you. I see the difference in the responses of them. All of them. I cant thank you enough. And yes I am blessed with your help. I really do believe G-d works through you. Praise G-d and thank you Ryka.

Shawn Keller
Cleveland, Ohio

The time I spend with Ryka either as friends or during the reading I had with her has always been productive for me as I feel she can see inside my soul. She has truly been blessed with a gift of helping me look at the situations in my life differently and to recognize my feelings and to express them. The reading I had with her also answered some questions I had about my mom's passing last year which eased my mind tremendously. I came away from it with a renewal of spirit and a positive changed attitude not only about my past but for the future as well. Thank you Ryka!

Marilyn C.
Austin, Texas

Ryka told me that her goal was to give me a reading that was full of 'ease and grace.' I went to her because I sensed my life was opening in a new way and I wanted to be as open as possible to new opportunities that were presenting themselves in my life.  I was pleasantly surprised by the reading I received.  The messages given to me were about opening myself up and letting go of the inner barriers that were keeping me from my deep wonderful core.

Ryka is a wonderfully sensitive medium whose readings truly full of, 'ease and grace.'  Thank you !

Pete D.
Austin, TX

I want to thank you for the reading I had with you. It clarified some issues in my life. Some things I did not want to hear, but I know I needed to hear them, & the direct approach was best. I am still digesting all that I was given. I had some ah-ha! moments & have made a paradigm shift. I am still a "work -in-progress" &, hopefully, I'll be ready soon to do some "inner child" work with you. Blessings, Ryka ♥ ♥ ♥

Jan Ohman
Austin, Texas

Ryka helped me get some insight as to where my attention really needs to be focused right now and so I am going to try to find some tools that will enable me to do that with peace and acceptance. I will have faith that I will not, "miss the boat," so to speak.

Round Rock Texas.

I want to Thank Ryka for here wonderful reading! I just received. (From Facebook)
I was not looking for a reading when I came across Ryka, But decided," WHY NOT?"
I had some unanswered questions I had been praying about for years, Not sure which direction to go on them?
She answered all of them with clarity and precision. I no longer have the feeling of being lost or unsure. Now I am on a new road to self and happiness , I knew one day God would give me the answers and he did in Ryka gift. GOD BLESS!

Tori Marks
Belton, Texas

Ryka has an incredible gift, and I have been honored to receive one reading from her and to be present for another. Her insights are gentle, encompassing, and spot on.

The manner of delivery is so easy and conversational that at times you almost forget that there are guides involved in the transaction. It has all of the trappings of an earnest heart-to-heart with an old friend, except that she knows things you could not have possibly told her, and reflects on them from angles that you'd not yet considered.

I'm grateful for the wisdom and guidance that Ryka has facilitated, and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking clarity and direction in their lives.

Austin, Texas

I have know Ryka for *^}{% years. :^) I knew she did reading for friends who had glowing things to say. I never asked her for a reading until last week. I was not sure how to proceed because we are treading on the scalloped edges of my personal belief system. The time I spent with Ryka was revealing, thought provoking, highly amusing, clarifying, immensely interesting and all around a delightful experience. Some information was not new, some was very new, and some was surprising. I have much to process.

My recommendation: go in with an open mind, be specific, take what your given, and laugh a little!

Laura Blunk
Wimberly, Texas

I'm not where I would like to be in life, and felt something was missing. So, through the "Austin Alchemist " online advertisement I found Ryka. I got my reading, and discover important information, along with what direction my path would take me. I strongly recommend for anybody who needs a spiritual guidance one on one to do so with Ryka, the experience will help you, and change your life.

San Antonio, Texas

Thank you for helping me Ryka. I'm going thru hard times losing my dad, my best friend. I know he's still with me. Thank you for confirming I'm not insane and It's the intuitive gift that I did receive from him. Thank you for being patient to help me understand these gifts that are now more important then ever, how to effectively communicate, and read the signs. You have a gift & to take it upon yourself to help me understand mine, means so much! It's nice knowing I'm not losing it or that I'm not alone. I see the signs more clearly & I'm coping better with the steps you explained.
Thank you my friend.

Andrea Lehr
Austin, Texas

I don’t write testimonials as a rule, however my reading with Ryka was a gift on so many levels, I am compelled to share. I had no expectations at all, yet the experience was profound. Ryka is a true facilitator, because she connects you to your guides, then gets out of the way. The result is nothing short of magical … that is if you allow it to be! I hope you do, because Ryka’s the real thing!

Jennifer Baldwin
Austin, Texas

I had my first reading yesterday. I’ve always had a deep sense of closeness to my guides and angels so I was looking forward to having a more concrete conversation with them through Ryka. I came with many questions and after the 2 hours they were all answered. There was so much advice I received that I really regret not recording it. I’m remembering bits and pieces of very important answers that came through.

It was very accurate, of course, but more importantly I feel different today like something has shifted. I won’t go into detail but I was surprised how many different personalities my guides have. Some were a little sarcastic and some deeply compassionate about the most painful things I go through in life.
One of my guides actually made a comment during my reading that “I don’t know how to invest” and that “kissing a girl would blow my mind” Comments like this have created a deeper appreciation for the unseen protection around me. It’s because I know they know me so well and are always with me through every second of my life.

It was life changing experience and I will be seeing Ryka again with more specific issues. Thank You.

Chloe P.
Austin, Texas

I’ve known Ryka for several years now, but prior to a few months ago, only knew about her role as a doula. Upon seeing a recent post on fb about her readings, I inquired about this ability. In a phone conversation after the inquiry, she explained her history, and she convinced me to schedule a session in the future. We scheduled our session for about a week later. By the time the date arrive, I had written a list of several questions to ask. During the session, Ryka and I talked through all of the questions and I received answers. One particular answer and piece of advice that stands out is the decision to travel to a particular part of the country for art, so we'll see how that turns out, which I'm sure will be fabulous!!

She truly confirmed what I already knew deep inside, and helped me see the importance of action. With this knowledge, I know what to do!

Heather H,
Austin, Texas

Although my reading with Ryka was only 15 minutes (because we were at a holistic fair) it was powerful and provided information and confirmation that I had been asking my Guides for. I was impressed that information started coming through when we were just chatting, before I even told her I wanted a reading. I love that she does not filter or interpret the information, thus allowing exactly what the guides are saying to be conveyed clearly and directly. I admire Ryka’s skill and integrity, and highly recommend her services.

Sara Pencil Blumenfeld
Austin, Texas

Ryka's gift is a portal for helping people. She is gentle, open, yet straightforward. She validated a lot of what I already knew and confronted, but needed more context of how to do it successfully. She is like a coal miner that guides you to chip away at that darkness, find the diamond, and reveal your brilliance.

My journey with Ryka was delightful, productive, and necessary. I am grateful for my healing journey, her time she gives so selflessly, and her gifts.
Thank you Ryka.....thank you!

Shannon M.
Austin, Texas

I highly recommend Ryka's services as a psychic reader. She received so much helpful and practical information from my spirit guides, and shared it with clarity and compassion. It was a very positive experience for me.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada

I was truly "gifted" a reading with Ryka. During our time she told me things that were hard but necessary for me to hear. The results in my life have been astounding, I have kicked out the "alcoholic parent" that I had been carrying around with me for too many decades. Now I, and my friends, will "kick that alcoholic out" when I start down the negative spiral of self abuse, and I will remember that I can change my attitude in a heartbeat, and often do. Outside circumstances in my life haven't changed overly much but my ability to deal with them has. Thank you Ryka!

Laura W.

I had a "reading" with Ryka a few weeks ago - it has been on my mind since. We, together, discovered some things I really need to stop and think about. Ryka has a gift of helping you discover things you probably know but are not confronting. She lets you find your own way by leading you to answer some of your own questions and helping you find the answers or possible solutions. It is a "gift" and I encourage anyone that is considering taking the leap to do so. You will not regret it.

Janice Foster
Austin, Texas

I grew up with Ryka; we were neighbors in Hillside NJ and our parents were close friends. Though separated by two thousand miles, we've gone on to become very good friends ourselves.

I come to spirituality from a rather unique vantage point. I'm an artist by trade and temperament, and believe firmly in a Creator. Some of my friends in the art world are athiests, and see Life progressing without invoking a metaphysical component, though it has given my view of Life added layers of meaning. The creative spark taps into areas that many artists barely begin to scratch the surface of, even in their later years, and none of us really know just where it springs from.

I also come from a world of science; I am an illustrator of subjects with a strong scientific theme (ancient Life). While some in this field are open to matters of a spiritual or religious nature, others shy away from the entire realm of metaphysics, like many artists, preferring to accept what can be proved empirically. Personally, I fall in the middle of these - I've long accepted a Universe created by a Creator who then let it develop through Natural Laws. Having one foot in each world has given me a perspective that lets me accept and respect both, and ground me enough to steer clear of the fringe elements that debase both.

We all come to points in our lives where it can be immensely beneficial to seek insight from different sources and disciplines. The artist from time to time needs to listen to the scientist. The scientist on occasion can open new doors by tuning in to the mystic.

Ryka has a truly insightful gift. I had a reading today, and it was a fascinating experience. I've recently come to a crossroads in my life; I've finished some long term projects and felt poised to take them to the next step, and was curious as to what kind of helpful information I could get. I've long looked at Life as truly a learning experience, and any insight or information I haven't yet received I look upon  as a learning experience, and insight these days is especially beneficial.

Ryka has a very accessible and open approach, but she doesn't sugar coat anything. If you find you're at a point in your life where you could use listening to Insight from a different and special source, and are open to that, please, by all means, give her a call. It was most rewarding.I've always looked at Life as a learning experience, and insight these days is especially beneficial.

If you find you're at a point in your life where you could use listening to Insight from a different and special source, and are open to that, please, by all means, give her a call. It was most rewarding.

Thanks so much Ryka for sharing your wildly insightful gift with me and my family. You even connected with our dog's guides! We now see a series of chaotic, traumatic events in the context of growth, and are in a place of hope and gratitude. I'm amazed at the exactness and significance of key words and phrases you used in our conversation. Bang on - gave me shivers. More importantly, it gave me clarity and simple, 'doable' tools for healing and moving forward.

I've been to see many people over the past few years because of my anxiety. I called Ryka for a specific situation but she helped me immensely with my entire anxiety levels. She was compassionate and spoke what I needed to hear, not what I wanted to hear. It has helped me profoundly. She gave me tools to help me in the future if my anxiety got hard to bear again. I may not need to call Ryka again, but if I do, I will not hesitate.

Ryka did a reading for my father and I and it helped us to answer some of our pressing questions we had and helped me finally find closure with my grandfather. She has helped our family mend after 2 years of heartache. Her gift is definitely a blessing to everyone she has helped and I encourage anyone to contact her for a reading.

Utilizing someone with this type of gift can be intimidating, and when you are raised in a religious household there is an underlying fear of tapping into something evil. So I took the advise of a very smart person I work with and went in to the session with the attitude of asking a friend for advice.

I lost my fiancé in 2009 and had not really been able to move on. I was trapped in guilt and a sense of disloyalty when I considered looking for a new relationship.

The connection that Ryka made gave me reassurance that it was ok for me to seek someone new and that I had no reason to feel guilty. While, as I told Ryka, I was not sure if it was my fiancée that came through (didn’t speak as he did) it was someone who was most definitely there when he passed. This was very therapeutic for me- I feel a sense of peace and release. This is a wonderful gift.

Ryka and I met in high school and when I read that she had chosen to share her gift with others I started thinking that it could be a way to get through a terrible feeling of anger I had towards one person that had been festering inside of me for years. Then I read a testimonial from one of her clients and it spoke to me, it convinced me that this could help. We scheduled our reading and talked on the phone for two hours. I have been waiting to write my testimonial because I expected an overwhelming sense of peace and change, but the change has been subtle and thus I have to remind myself, again, to not have expectations. Now I see that the change has been gentle and peaceful as it should be. When I see or talk to this person now, I don't want to hurt him for what he did to me, I deal with it and it is good. I have also noticed I have been able to handle other parts of my life in a more calmer and less anxious way.

The information in my reading hit the bullseye. You answered all my questions and then some. The information - including your "lunch at the pool" story - was invaluable. I now understand how to help others without taking on their problems, when to steer clear, and how to have a more "health-ful" life. Many, many thanks, Ryka! I'll be calling you for another reading.

Austin, Texas

If you are here reading these testimonials it is because there is a seeker inside you looking for answers. But part of being open to the Universe is truly listening. Sometimes, the answers are not what you expect. Sometimes you discover you are not even asking the right questions.  Ryka's gift is helping her clients ask the questions that need to be asked. They may not be what you think they are. . . and that’s the greatest gift of all.

"My hour with Ryka was more productive than any time I've ever spent with counselors."

I have know Ryka for more than 12 years and I've been blessed to have had many readings with her. Ryka, herself, is an incredibly kind and genuine person. She lives and works in the gratitude of her gifts. She is an amazing channel, clear and insightful. Through her, my guides speak to me earnestly, with compassion and humor. The information is always timely and helpful. These readings are an integral part of the work I do to heal my past and live joyously and fully in the present. Whether you are looking for guidance to help you unravel old patterns and issues, or you are hoping to speak to a loved one who has crossed over, I highly recommend working with Ryka. She is a wonderful woman with an amazing gift.

My session with Ryka affected me profoundly. Ryka was able to give me insight and healing with issues surrounding guilt and shame. My spirit guides were able to take the metaphoric book bag of guilt and shame that I have held onto for years and release it. My Father came to me and embraced me with the love of his presence. Through this reading I have begun a path of healing and, the journey is a much lighter one without the burden I once carried.

Ryka is an amazing psychic and medium.  Operating with the utmost integrity, she will only tell you when something is really coming through; and when it does, it really does.  Her talent's have been guiding me for more than a decade and she has been accurate, and eerily so, the vast majority of the time.  Ryka, with her gift, actually predicted a very specific car problem. She told me to have the boot checked on my vehicle. The next day I took it to the mechanic and sure enough, the boot needed to be replaced, as well as the ball joint. Had I not done this at that time, I could have easily had an accident on the road. I was very fortunate to have that conversion and catch it in time to be safe. I am especially grateful for the last big big piece of insight that she shared with me, as it was instrumental in putting me on my path as a wellness coach.  Without her input, I may have been too busy or scared to listen, and missed my calling.

My experience with Ryka as a psychic was very timely. Our time together was relaxed and easy. She knew details that she had no way of knowing. She described the growing pains I was having in two separate relationships in a way that helped me release the tense energy I had been carrying. From what she said, I was reassured that I was on the right path with these relationships. She encouraged me to list what I was most grateful for in the one relationship, which allowed for a deeper and easier healing.

She told me that I was not breathing deeply, which I then noticed was true and as soon as I started breathing deeply again, I found myself more grounded and at peace. She described my spirit guides to me. For instance, she said one of them asked, "what are you doing for yourself? Why are you doing so much in one of the relationships and not doing for yourself?" which made me realize that I hadn't been doing as much art as would most deeply nourish me. I got a lot out of the reading I had with Ryka. I'd highly recommend working with her and plan to do so again. 


I have the privilege of knowing Ryka as a doula, but I never knew about her gift as a medium and a psychic. It wasn’t until a recent phone call that I learned of her gift. I was intrigued as she passionately spoke of her abilities and how it helped people. By the end of the phone call, I told her I wanted to schedule a psychic reading.

Honestly, I would have never thought to seek out a psychic, but because I trust Ryka I was willing to have a reading. It was exactly what I needed to confront questions I had regarding my life. The timing was perfect. I was comforted and challenged by what I learned about myself and my life. I am still processing the information because it spoke to me on many levels. It is an inward journey and Ryka is a wonderful guide. It’s a chance to take care of yourself emotionally, spiritually and physically.
Thank you, Ryka!

Ryka was able to confirm events and relationships in my life with amazing accuracy which helped me to know the connection was solid. The session was very relaxed and, because of the way she conducts them, very focused. I was able to ask specific questions and as a result received very specific answers. If you’ve never had a reading and are considering it, Ryka will make the experience very accessible and confirming. If you’ve had readings before you will find Ryka’s process and connections refreshing and solid.

I don’t know how she does it. Ryka has the ability to talk with spiritual support while she is having a conversation with you. During my reading, they guided me into the admission of a deeply held desire; one that once admitted to another person becomes more, “real”. Now I am working on the Creation Plan to manifest that desire. I highly recommend Ryka’s services when you need clarity in life.

Ryka is a consummate professional and someone with absolute integrity, as well as a very good friend. I did not once feel uncomfortable or ill at ease during our reading. She communicated things that helped me come to terms with some aspects of myself that I have been neglecting, as well as making me feel more comfortable with my chosen career path. I left with far fewer questions than I came in with, and feel far better about the answers than the ones I had been making up for myself. I will definitely be doing another reading.

I received a surprisingly insightful reading from Ryka, that opened up some unconscious areas in my psyche and paved the way for growth and exploration and a new way of being for me. I recommend a reading from this woman, who is able to pick up on subtle information streams and deliver guidance that is important and relevant in a very clear and direct way. My reading with Ryka gave me much to ponder and think about. Thank you Ryka! I am sharing your info with others!

Smithville, Texas

I have know Ryka since we were 10 years old. In recent years, I have come to know her gift and have found it especially helpful during the past year. On one occasion during a phone call, I was able to talk with another friend's son who had passed about a year earlier. This discussion brought comfort in the fact that the young man is at peace and gave me some ideas on how to attempt to comfort his mother.

More recently, I was able to have one of her readings. Like many of us, I am in a time of great transition in my life. Ryka's reading answered my most important questions and gave me confidence in the direction I am choosing for my life at this time. I also now have direction for my own personal growth within and beyond this time of change. Following the reading I have felt more at peace and confident with myself then I had in years. Thank you Ryka!

"My 'Reading by Ryka' left me feeling light and clear about complex issues. I'm grateful for the experience!"

Austin, Texas

Thanks for the wonderful reading. It gave me exactly what I was looking for…”Clarity”. Even though I had no particular expectations as to what the reading would be like, I was amazed at how close I felt to my guides when we spoke to them. If there was any skepticism in me before the reading, which I am sure there was, at least a little, it all dissolved when I felt the familiar comfort of being in the presence of my parents. There were no great changes as a result of the reading, other than the reassurance that I was already on the right path. That alone was worth a lot.

Austin, Texas

My experience with Ryka as a channel was beyond expectation. All my questions were answered with clarity and gave me a new perspective in areas I had struggled with all my life. The added bonus was receiving a healing which dissipated my attachment to the negative messages (about myself) I had heard from my mother which was affecting my relationships, prosperity and self confidence. I am so grateful and have a new-found sense of freedom!

Austin, Texas

I encourage anyone to contact Ryka for a reading! She really hit home on several things that I had questions about and gave me much to consider. I am still processing the conversation, and felt it made a lasting impact. One comment made the hair stand up on my arms, when I knew she had no way to convey a message to me other than being "connected" to my loved ones. Trying to implement my reading into my life in way that will help me move forward.Thanks Ryka for the gentle nudge,and reminder that we are all connected.
