FAQ & Myths


#1. MYTH:  Only a limited percentage of ‘gifted’ individuals can develop

extended perceptual abilities.


FACT:  The human nervous system is extraordinarily sensitive.


The simple truth is that the average person's nervous system continually DETECTS much more stimuli/information than they are AWARE of. Consequently, most individuals have the innate potential to develop extended perceptual skills.


What holds most practitioners back from developing extended perception abilities is that they  simply have never been shown HOW to go about getting access to valuable information that their nervous is detecting - outside of their 'normal' range of awareness.



#2. MYTH: A practitioner can (eventually) attain extended perception abilities by refining conventional perception skills.


FACT:  Conventional perception abilities and extended perception abilities are distinctly different skill-sets.


Extended perception and conventional (5-sense based) perception involve different neural pathways and networks in the brain.  In many instances, focusing on one of these forms of perception will inhibit, not promote, awareness  of the other.



#3. FAQ: Does it require a lot of time to develop extended perception skills?


FACT:  With the right assistance, most practitioners can significantly enhance their perception skills in a weekend.


Extended perception skills can be elusive, but they are not difficult to develop once a practitioner is shown exactly how to go about it.



In the past, science did not have a clear understanding of how extended perception worked. Consequently, each practitioner had to 'reinvent the wheel' and figure out what subtle responses to pay attention to BEFORE they could develop these perception skills. This preliminary discovery phase often took considerable time (years) and effort - with no guarantees of success. A practitioner can now skip this time-consuming step and obtain years of knowledge in a weekend workshop.


Neuroscience has a much better understanding of how subtle perception operates than it did just a few years ago.  The ACCESS Group continues to synthesize, and simplify, cutting-edge research into subtle perception training procedures.


You can still spend years trying to figure things out on your own using a 'hit or miss' approach, OR you can learn how to QUICKLY  develop this invaluable skill by participating in an Access Workshop.



#4. MYTH:  A practitioner's perception is limited to their 'standard' 5 senses.


FACT:  The nervous system produces many types of responses when it detects a stimulus - besides 'classic'  5 sense responses. If a practitioner learns how to become aware of some of these other responses, they can use them to extend their perceptual experience beyond the range of the conventional 5 senses.


For example, a practitioner’s nervous system produces certain subcortical/ brainstem responses  when it detects  'subthreshold' changes in a patient's physiology.  However, the nervous system

does NOT produce 'standard' conscious sensations when it detects these subtle changes.


If a practitioner knows how to heighten their awareness of specific physiological responses, they can tell when their nervous system is detecting these extremely-subtle changes, even though they cannot perceive them through their conventional 5 senses.



#5. FAQ: Has scientific research objectively demonstrated that the nervous system can detect subtle stimuli - from the outside world - outside of a person's awareness?


FACT: Yes. Scientific research has objectively proven this via several methods.


One method researchers use is to connect a subject to biofeedback instruments - so the subject's autonomic and central nervous system responses can be monitored objectively.   The subject is then exposed to a stimulus that is too subtle to be perceived consciously. Following this, the subject's biofeedback readings are reviewed. In a number of such experiments, the subject's nervous system produced subtle autonomic and central nervous system responses to stimuli that the subject was not consciously aware of.

Taking the Access Workshop was like coming home.

Somewhere in my being I knew that sometimes I just knew where to go and that to get results

didn't require a massive input. Rick put that into perspective and gave us the science behind it.

It is not a technique class. It is about using your technique with more certainty, confidence

and better results. Thank-you Dr. Wiegand.
