"Judging from the heart can never be cruel because true Integrity has only one purpose —to serve the whole in the spirit of truth and compassion."

The Perceiver


Who is this Archetype?

The Perceiver naturally senses when a pattern is flawed and has the gift of making improvements. There is no thinking in this processit’s simply his intuitive understanding that leads to a tireless service to the vision of perfection.

The Perceiver knows that life can be viewed through a variety of lenses depending on which eye-glasses of perception are put on. He knows that when he holds on tightly to his own opinions and judgments, it makes him unable to see things from a wider perspective and thus ineffective at correcting a situation for the highest good of all. When the Perceiver gets caught up in his own judgments and opinions, he can become critical of others and himself. 

The Perceiver works well with his partner, The Explorer, because she helps him see things from a higher vantage point. Together they can assess a situation and decide what the best course of action is for moving forward. 

The Perceiver is passionate about psychology, especially developmental psychology, and speaks about our development from birth in 7 year cycles. He loves to assist parents in taking full responsibility for their own childhoods, so they can guide their own children to reach true adulthood through role-modeling. 

Part of the process of becoming responsible is confronting parental conditioning in order to learn how to parent the self, the inner child. The Perceiver teaches parents how to hold their own space, to hold themselves, without reacting to judgments or self-judgments. He helps adults understand what made them the way they are in order to release the aspects of conditioning that do not belong to them. 

One essence of the Perceiver's message is that adults can undo damaging patterns from childhood and become whole again. It takes willingness and courage to uncover the wounds from the past and transcend false beliefs that no longer serve. 

The Perceiver has learned to not give his advice when someone isn’t open or ready for it. In this sense, he is more of a role model who shows others how to live in integrity and gives correction when asked.

The Perceiver never judges from his mind but instead perceives from his heart.  He knows his purpose is to view himself and others as the highest self and holds to the integrity of that gold standard. Knowing what others are capable of, he holds space for them to rise to their greatest potential.

Gene Key Patterns:

Victim of Judgment

Dilemma: Flaws


Repressive Nature:


This pattern first develops through our relationship with our parents, particularly during our teen years. If our parents judge us too harshly during these formative years, a pattern of self-judgment sets in. Your pattern is to turn judgment in on yourself. Out of your own self-judgment you become a conformist, going along with the majority instead of standing up for yourself and your own convictions. All judgment is based on comparison, and with self-judgment you compare yourself unfavorably to someone who you consider to be above you. This in turn gives rise to a deep-seated feeling of inferiority and a constant habit of undermining yourself.

From the Gene Keys

 Reactive Nature:


This judgment emerges as a constant need to challenge any authority figure, beginning with the parents. If the process of challenging your parents has not permitted a natural resolution, this behavior pattern becomes a permanent part of your character. It occurs when your parents do not maintain strong enough boundaries around you and instead fall victim to their own self-judgments. The urge to challenge then becomes cemented by an unconscious anger in the child that the parents were not strong enough to maintain their integrity. This translates in the teen’s life to a deep disrespect for authority and a belief that one is somehow above it. Others will perceive you as volatile since your very identity is built around the undermining of others.

From the Gene Keys

Questions to Consider:

Would you rather be right or happy?

Where do you tend to feel inferior or superior to others?

Do your high standards create problems in relationships? Who are you being hard on?

Where is self-judgment most alive in your life? How does it play out on a daily basis?

What are your patterns of self-sabotage?

Do you feel like you have inherited patterns or beliefs from your parents? Which of these are you ready to let go of? 

What can you do to shift these patterns? What do you need to work on releasing? Judgment? Forgiveness? Perfection? 

Where do you justify judgment?

If you are judging, what are you comparing?

When or about what do you compare yourself to others? 

When are you able to work well with others?

When does exploring with someone else create a better outcome? New perspectives? 

Are you a perfectionist?

Do you maintain healthy boundaries with others?

Are your boundaries respected? Pushed? Compromised? Frequently?  Rarely? 

What does integrity mean to you? 

Do you feel you are in integrity in all areas of your life?

How have you experienced integrity? 

What does integrity feel like in your body?

Do you get stuck in details?  

When have you experienced that you made things better?

When do you experience pure joy in life? Who do you experience joy with?

Phone Backgrounds

EMBRACE your shadows. Sometimes our shadows just need attention and love to be transformed. An embrace is a hug. We pull it in; we do not push away. Hug until it blends and transforms inside of you, revealing the GIFT within. The gift is then RELEASED within you and outside of you. You EMBODY the Siddhi when this essence vibrates through your whole being.

Use these phone backgrounds as a reminder for you through the transit.

The Healing Power of the Mind

This group meditation + alignment is centered around your mind and REPROGRAMMING it. We will be turning off portions of the brain that induce monkey mind (the default mode network) and turning up parts of the brain that center around mindful meditation and are conducive for healing, integration and focus (dorsolateral prefrontal cortex).



"As a fully healed adult, your purpose is to help others complete their childhoods, so they can finally enjoy their lives and pass on their integrity to their children."
