"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."
PSYCHOLOGY - IMPROVEMENT - PARENTING
Who is this Archetype?
This archetype is logical, observing, and discerning. The Perceiver naturally senses when a pattern is flawed and has the gift of making improvements. The Perceiver enjoys discovering, naming and challenging what needs correcting. There is not much thinking in this process—it’s simply this archetype’s intuitive understanding that leads to a tireless service to the vision of perfection.
Underneath his dissatisfaction lies a deep concern for human rights, and for what will keep society healthy and in balance. The Perceiver knows how to clean out what isn't healthy, and restore vitality to something that has been corrupted.
The Perceiver views life through a variety of lenses. 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 makes him unable to correct a situation for the highest good of all. The Discoverer (17) archetype provides this higher vantage point. Together they can assess a situation and decide what the best course of action is moving forward.
A close relationship is forged between the Perceiver and the Vital (58). They are both idealistic and have the vision of a world where people are happy, healthy, and empowered. They have made this vision their life mission. While the Vital focuses more on the aspect of the body and finding joy in everyday life, the Perceiver is more concerned about emotional and mental wellbeing.
The Perceiver is passionate about psychology, especially developmental psychology, and knows all about our development from birth until the age of 21, divided in three 7-year cycles we learn about in the Venus Sequence. He loves assisting 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 this process is about confronting their own parental conditioning, and to learn to parent and hold their own inner child, without reacting to judgements or self-judgements. 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.
The essence of the Perceiver's message is that adults can undo damaging patterns from childhood and become whole again. Becoming whole means to live beyond fragmentation. To stay intact is to stay in integrity. This is a state where a person’s body, emotions, thoughts and spirit are in harmony and allow the person to continuously evolve to a higher frequency.
The Perceiver has learned to not give his advice when someone isn’t open or ready for it. Healing can’t be pushed, it can only be chosen. He is a role model who walks his own talk and demonstrates what it is to live in integrity. As he shows up in this way, so do others to learn from him.
It takes willingness and courage to uncover the wounds from the past and transcend false beliefs that no longer serve and in this The Perceiver is a true ally to anyone that is committed to the process of becoming whole. As a fully healed adult, his purpose is to help others complete their childhoods, so they can finally enjoy their lives and pass on their integrity to their own children.
His purpose is to view himself and others as their highest self and holds himself and others to that gold standard. The Perceiver holds space for others to rise to their highest potential while simultaneously remaining detached from the expectation. He knows potential is not always reality. The Perceiver never judges from his mind but instead perceives from his heart.

EXPLORING THE ARCHETYPE
"Higher reality perceives the mind not as a mere function of the human brain but as a mental body or plane woven into the living aura. This mental body is both an individual construct in the human auric field and a great plane that unites all human beings as one."

"All judgment is self-judgment."

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.

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).
Victim of Judgement
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-judgement sets in. Your pattern is to turn judgement in on yourself. Out of your own self-judgement you become a conformist, going along with the majority instead of standing up for yourself and your own convictions. All judgement is based on comparison, and with self-judgement 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.
This judgement 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-judgements. 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.
The Victim Mind
“The more you complain, the more you damage yourself and the world.”
Taking on the World
“The 18th Gene Key thus determines whether a child enters adulthood as an integrated adult or as a wounded child posing as an adult.”
“Our genes are all bodhissatvas programmed to serve the whole until it has attained perfection.”
"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."
