Are You A SuperCeptor?

SuperCeptors (Super perCeptives) are intelligent, highly perceptive, intuitive people who are like huge satellite dishes in the middle of the desert, picking up every nuance in space including:

  • Other people’s emotions
  • Earth changes like earthquakes and storms
  • Solar events
  • Flux in the electromagnetic spectrum
  • The collective emotions
  • The nuances of a community state 
  • Communications with the dead
  • Past and Future events and Destiny lines

SuperCeptor is a term coined by Christina Allen as she came to terms with her own sensitivities and noticed the push back by many of her clients on the word "sensitive." Whatever you want to call them, there is a certain subset of the population that have been an integral part of the survival of our tribes and villages since humans first gathered in communities. The theory of evolution suggests that when trait of value is expressed genetically, you will see it selected for, or "chosen" in that community over an again. SuperCeptors are the "canary in the coal mines" and have been integral to tribal survival as they are the first to notice "a disturbance in the field." We can assume that they have been vital to early communities as we still see their genes continuing on, passed down through their families. Inheriting a trait, however, does not mean you know how to use it. Just because you have healing hands, are empathetic, have clear third eye sight, or can see spirits, for example, does not mean that you know how to differentiate between your imagination and true energetics or how to guide a person through a healing crisis. Nor does it mean that you know how to separate yourself from the feelings your client experiencing without taking them on. How do you distinguish your inner voices from those of Spirit? Are you projecting your own wounding onto your client, or is it truly theirs?  Finally, how do you deal with all of the overwhelm of your sensitivity and still remain productive? These are the questions that distinguish raw talent from skill.

Many SuperCeptors are initially unaware of the fact that they are running huge amounts of information through a relatively unconscious mind. They feel more crazy than gifted. Some come to their awakenings through trauma. To become and an effective SuperCeptor one must learn how to identify the fray of information streaming to them as such. They must learn how to separate their personal dramas, for example, their imaginations, paranoia, need for being special, and even their mental delusion, from what they are truly picking up with their intuitions and perceptive organs. Many unstable people find themselves drawn to the healing arts. But before they can hold the full spectrum of information that is available to them they often need to heal and get back into their bodies. How do you ground and develop trust in your perceptions? Unfortunately, these perceptive abilities have also been shunned and feared by religious communities in more recent times so the training required to hone effective perceptive skills has gone mostly underground as well. Without a positive context in our culture through which a SuperCeptor can see and recognize themselves, it is often difficult for them to own their abilities, let alone find a way to refine them. Many untrained SuperCeptors turn to self destructive and addictive behaviors like eating disorders, and self medication, to cope. Many finally break down into chronic diseases, and mental illnesses instead of answering their soul’s calling.

At Austin Shamanic Center we use the context of Shamanism to bring SuperCeptors back in line with their soul’s purpose in this day and age. The serious training and healing the indigenous initiate goes through in their shamanic training is the grounded intuitive education most of our current SuperCeptors need but are born into this world without. At ASC, Shamanic training is not about learning how to wear ponchos and shake a rattle, it is a way of preparing our vessel to hold, perceive, and transmit high vibrational energies, as the ancients have been doing for thousands of years. Because their teachings are still in tact, we turn to them for guidance, with honor and gratitude, and let them help us remember the way. As your perceptive skills become more accurate through your training, you remember how to become a highly functioning asset to your community, however that may look to you, as a lawyer, a parent, an artist, a contractor or a healer, just to name a few.

We use the following effective processes to extract SuperCeptor diamonds out of the rough so that they can truly shine:


Because most untrained SuperCeptors have faced misunderstanding throughout their lives most of them have some serious personal healing work to do before they can step into their true power. Many deal with rejection, abandonment, low self esteem and have difficulty with owning their strengths until this work is done. Because many do not know how to separate their own feelings from someone else’s they have to find out who they truly are and how to anchor that in before they can work effectively with others. They may also have imprints from former lives keeping them in fear of stepping in again.


Many SuperCeptors are born into families that do not understand them so they need people who do. They may need guidance on their personal lives, or their professional training track. Do you need help creating better boundaries? Do you need help distinguishing what is yours from what is someone else's? Are you carrying other people's stuff for them? All these things are places we can work to help you step out of victim and into your power. When we align with like minded people we recognize in ourselves our true nature. When we can seek guidance from someone who truly sees us, we thrive!


Raw perceptive ability requires proper training to be truly effective. Until we clear ourselves from our past and learn how to consciously hone and direct our perceptive skills, we can be a loose cannon. Many of us mistake the agendas of our egos for our higher selves. Further, we may be bogged down in cultural and ancestral paradigms that do not support us; we need to dismantle these belief systems that keep us powerless. We need to learn how to protect ourselves, define our boundaries and live with the discomfort of overstimulation. It is therefore important to be trained by someone else who knows the way, who knows which stars to reach for and which land mines to avoid. The paqo path at ASC understands this, it is the perfect way to hone your skills and make peace with the energetic universe. 

If you are interested in spending the weekend online with a group of fellow SuperCeptors, and exploring who you are, and are not, as an energetically sensitive being, please consider the Tools For The SuperCeptor class. The Online Introduction to Andean Mysticism is a place to start with the paqo (shamanic) path, while the Andean Foundation Training series is stepping fully onto the path. For those of you who want to hone your skills more seriously, try the Misha Carrier series. For those called to being a healer the Energy Medicine Certification program becomes an option once the Andean Foundation series and Misha Carrier are complete.


ASC creates a nurturing, accountable program and community for SuperCeptors to truly thrive. Are you one? Please join us today!
