Chapter14. The Sixth Sense (Review)
The Thirteenth Step toward Riches
The sixth sense can only be properly applied once
one has a mastery of the other twelve principles in
this book. This does not mean that you will not
have a flash of creativity received through the sixth
sense. But wouldn’t it be better to be dominated by
positive creativity and thought in managing our lives
and our businesses than the negative though that
can so easily dominate our day.
By mastering the other twelve principles you will be
able to hone the receptivity of the subconscious
mind by affirmation of positive orders to it rather
than allowing any random thought to enter,
particularly negative thoughts. A good start for
anyone is to participate in the 30-Day Mental
cleanse, where you begin to learn how to stop the
dominating negative thought process.
To understand why this idea is worth participation, do
an honest self evaluation. Picture a set of balance
scales. Now “honestly” weigh the volume of negative
thoughts entering your mind in a day compared to
positive thought. We must be HONEST and look at our
dominating feelings through the day. My guess is,
at best one feels neutral. It takes no power or effort
to have negative thought, but it does take our
strength and power. It requires our willingness and
perseverance to maintain positive thought. That is
why at Mentoring for Free it is suggested to do a
minimum of 200 positive self-talk affirmations a
day. If one uses the scale exercise from time to
time it will help us become more aware of what is
dominating our thoughts helping push that balance
to the “Positive”.
Hill says, “By mastering these principles we will
unleash our creative imagination where ideas,
plans and thoughts flash in, the “flashes”
sometimes called “Hunches” or “inspiration”.
Hill, “The sixth sense is not something that one can
turn off and put on at will. Ability to use this great
power comes slowly, through application of the
other principles outlined in this book. The starting
point of all achievement is DESIRE. The finishing
point is that brand of knowledge which leads to
understanding—understanding of self,
understanding of others, understanding of the laws
of Nature, recognition and understanding of
happiness. Hence the principle of the Sixth
Sense had to be included as a part of this
Here is some more good news. Hill says, “No
matter who you are, or what may have been your
purpose in reading this book, you can profit by it
without understanding the principle described in
this chapter. The chapter on the sixth sense was
included, because the book is designed for the
purpose of presenting a complete philosophy.”
The point Hill made earlier in the chapter and again
toward the end does remain true though. “The
sixth sense can only be properly applied once one
has a mastery of the other twelve principles in this book.”
Hill suggests that one can use this chapter “The Sixth
Sense” as a gauge to measure their growth and
understanding of the other twelve principles by
reading this chapter at the end of each book cycle
in helping you see your growth.
