Chapter 14 : The Sixth Sense, quote from Hill.
THE “thirteenth” principle is known as the SIXTH SENSE, through which Infinite Intelligence may,
and will communicate voluntarily, without any effort from, or demands by, the individual.
Somewhere in the cell-structure of the brain, is located an organ which receives vibrations of thought
ordinarily called “hunches.”
The fact remains that human beings do receive accurate knowledge, through sources other than the
physical senses. Such knowledge, generally, is received when the mind is under the influence of
Any emergency which arouses the emotions, and causes the heart to beat more rapidly than normal
may, and generally does, bring the sixth sense into action. Anyone who has experienced a near fatal
accident while driving, knows that on such occasions, the sixth sense often comes to one’s rescue,
and aids, by split seconds, in avoiding the accident.
The sixth sense is not something that one can take off and put on at will. Ability to use this great
power comes slowly, through application of the other principles outlined in this book. Seldom does
any individual come into workable knowledge of the sixth sense before the age of forty.
More often the knowledge is not available until one is well past fifty, and this, for the reason that the
spiritual forces, with which the sixth sense is so closely related, do not mature and become usable
except through years of meditation, self-examination, and serious thought.
