I so thoroughly enjoyed Kerri’s first book, ‘Listen Like A Horse’, that when I heard she was writing a second book, I was so excited an could hardly wait to read it! I found Kerri’s second book, Spiritually Gifted, just as compelling as a story, but what I didn’t expect was on how many levels it spoke to me.
Spiritually Gifted does recount Kerri’s journey, but also conveys so much more. If your are highly intuitive or highly sensitive - or know someone who is- you’ll learn much about how to navigate the world without abandoning your gifts, as well as have a better idea how to connect with those you may know who are wired similarly. I had many matching pictures- and although the details were different- the learning and Knowing I got was the same- Truth is Truth! So in reading this book, that littler younger me felt seen, and heard in a very deep and real way. There were times I had to put the book down and just be in the pause while integration happened.
I am so grateful for this book, and for Kerri to have written it down and shared it with us. What a gift! Even though you may just hear what you already know to be true, You’ll most certainly get a deeper connection to your Knowing, and you just may learn something!

This book for me was like a tribute uniting all the sensitive people around the world, allowing us to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves through the author’s story. It is very easy and unpretentious reading that communicates valuable, pivotal, life-changing ideas in a simple way. The unique perspectives offered by Kerri will give you a new sense of awareness which just may be about the only thing that has ever made sense to you. Great reading, and this is coming from someone who struggles to get into any book because she can’t sit still long enough!
I have read the book and loved every bit of it. The whole story transcends all cultures. Parents, students & professionals from all walks of life can learn from the story Kerri has narrated. It touches your heart. After reading the book, the audience will like to re-visit the decisions that they take in their every day life.
My experience with Kerri has been truly life-changing. I was so blessed to be able to host one of Kerri’s workshops in Sydney, which completely opened my eyes to a new world of consciousness and awareness. I had been seeking a release from severe childhood trauma and PTSD, and Kerri’s tools allowed me to dissolve my barriers and move forward in a positive and authentic way towards true healing. Kerri’s beautiful parallels into the animal world made perfect sense, and her simple yet profound tools, are a beautiful foundation for humans living in complete harmony within nature. I have been using the tools in my own equine work with clients, and the outcomes have been incredible. Kerri’s books also provide a wonderful in-depth background to the concepts, as well as into Kerri’s life. I could not put the books down, I was absorbed in every word, as they provided such a beautiful insight into Kerri’s life journey and her spiritual process. I am so incredibly grateful for meeting and knowing such an incredible human being. Thank you, Kerri, for sharing your gifts with the world!
Words spoken, written in this case, from the heart are listened by the heart.
The simplicity of Kerri´s book is an extraordinary and helpful pinnacle of remembering that living from the heart it´s the way.
For all the people that are seeking for answers or questions about a meaningful life, I believe this book is a great companion in this wonderful journey. A lot of Kerri´s adventures are just like "next door neighbor" ones, but the difference is the clarity and awareness that she has that shows another way of sensing life and not just observing. It is not the situation itself, it´s the amazing clarity that Kerri offers as a gift for all.
This book spoke directly to the forgotten child within that had no voice. Consequently I find articulating and writing this review quite difficult.
Kerri remained spiritually aware and in full contact with her true essence and higher guidance as a child. In this very personal journey she explains how she consciously navigated her way through the expectations and incongruent family, friends and teachers and her strategies and ways of coping.
The sharing of this intimate story of her struggles to turn what seemed in her youth to be a curse into many blessings helped me see how I unconsciously conformed to become the way I am.
She holds a beacon of light to show that one can consciously change patterns and behaviors that don’t belong to your true self.
As a highly sensitive person, I found myself feeling the wholeness of Kerri's story as an emotional and spiritual journey in a way that served as a blueprint for me to do the same with mine. Because of the experience of reading this book I'm aware of the divinity of my own life in a richer way and have been activated to process and integrate my own journey in an empowering way that is still unfolding for me. I'm thankful for Kerri's willingness to share herself through her words as a support and guiding light for other spiritually gifted beings such as myself. Blessings to every soul who finds more of themselves in the pages of this book :)
What a beautifully written book! Keri shares from her heart and opens an opportunity for humans to feel truly accepted. Her words inspired me to see animals as my teachers, even more. Each chapter guides spiritually gifted beings (which is all of us) through an abundance of support and explanation to gain clarity.
Keri shares many sentimental and beautiful memories as a child through her life journey - the whole reason she is who she is and does what she does. My favorite story was when Keri was in Hawaii underwater dancing with the dolphins. Her words sucked me in as if I was there feeling the magic of the day. I've often imagined the experience of being with dolphins in such a magical way, and the tale brought me into that experience like no other. I really appreciated that moment.
Keri is very open to sharing her experience of being human again, fully awakened and aware. She spreads her love in every word she has written. What I most learned, most importantly, from this book is to trust in my own wisdom and connection, to animals, and absolutely everything.
