Ctrl/Cmd+V The Sixth Sense
Hill says: “This principle is the apex of the philosophy. It can be assimilated, understood, and applied only by first mastering the other 12 principles”. However, he also says: “Understanding of the sixth sense comes only by meditation through mind development from within”. As to what it is, he says: “It has also been referred to as the ‘receiving set’ through which ideas, plans and thoughts flash into the mind. The flashes are sometimes called hunches or inspirations”.
As far as the mind is concerned, we are potential giants: we have only uncovered but a tiny fraction of what we are capable. We cannot approach our full potential without using the power of the sixth sense and we do this by practising the 13 principles of success. It all begins with desire: that is, we need to reveal our life’s purpose, read it daily along with a self-talk that sustains and strengthens it. When we are practising our daily self-talk with concentrated effort and with high emotion, the hunches or inspirations flow into our minds.
We become aware how we can improve so as to achieve our purposes; it may be something, such as getting rid of a bad habit, like rushing in with answers instead of listening. It could even be a reminder to smile more, especially while on the telephone. It is the small internal voice prompting us or guiding us towards improvement. It may be telling us that we should be more trusting of self and others, or it could be telling us how to go about looking for solutions to problems. Sometimes, we may even get intimations of a plan on how to accomplish our goals and when we do, we should write them down as soon as possible. In fact, we should write down all the promptings we get from our self-talk meditations, because it is that special time when we are fully present with ourselves and our purposes. Similarly, we will also receive these promptings while saying our self-talk as we perform other tasks during the day. I believe that Infinite Intelligence never stops guiding us when we are willing to listen and act.
This time of year is special as it reminds us of growth and re-birth, with flowers and trees and plants springing into life. For a Christian, it is also a time of resurrection. It reminds us how close we can be to Infinite Intelligence or the Creator of all life, if we listen to the still small voice within guiding us on our earthly journey in our self-talk meditations.
Regards and best wishes to all.
