The Sixth Sense

THE SIXTH SENSE THE DOOR TO THE TEMPLE OF WISDOM

The Thirteenth Step toward Riches

Throughout our lives we all experience the Sixth Sense in one form or another. It may be in the avoidance of a life threatening incident, the need to call someone urgently for no apparent reason, the provision of a solution to a problem or simple a hunch or idea which could if acted upon enhance our business.

No one has isolated where in the Brain the Brain the Sixth Sense resides. It communicates voluntarily through the finite conscious mind of man with infinite intelligence using the transmitting ability of the subconscious mind and the receiving function of the creative imagination. The ability to use the sixth sense cannot be taught and will only begin to fully function in later life, over the age of forty, and comes with maturity of physical as well as spiritual life.

In my professional life I concur that this was in fact true, since the majority of my work involved the solution of problems in the steel construction industry. I developed a procedure of always carrying a notebook and pencil where ever I was. Note down the facts in the notebook and then move on. I found by doing this that there would come a hunch or idea within a short or may be a longer time as to the solution of the problem.

In my spiritual life there have been a number of instances where I have had no control over the changes being brought about in my life. One in particular is very vivid, being the day I committed to becoming a soldier in the Salvation Army. I do not remember the walk from the Gallery of the Hall to the front where I made the commitment. The Sixth Sense lead me there. It has continued to lead me for over 35 years now.

In my business life in the last ten years I have drifted away from the practice of recording ideas and hunches on paper, i.e. writing them down. Through studying TGR over the past nine months I have again started to carry a notebook and pencil everywhere. Anything I note down I revisit in the later part of the day and evaluate.

I have learnt that nothing is impossible and a better saying would be “I’m Possible”, not at this moment but in the future when my knowledge, the application of the Master Mind and Technology catch up. I believe this is how MFF has developed over the years and will continue to develop. This is particularly true in the latest developments associated with the Mentoring App.
