“Your Sixth Sense: Unlocking the Power of Your Intuition”, by Belleruth Naparstek, is an excellent and sophisticated guidebook on how to recognize, cultivate, and direct the natural gift we are all born with: the sixth sense. She’s a psychotherapist and she uses her intuitive capabilities in tandem with her training to really discern what she’s hearing from her clients. It’s gratifying to read that her moments of wisdom are always guided by her sixth sense.
I’m always drawn to books that are down to earth and offer practical ways to access and decode intuitive “hits.” This book offers dozens of examples of this but most importantly for me, the underlying agenda of “The Sixth Sense” is that these skills can open the door to a life that includes inspiration, generosity and kindness.
Her chapter headings are indicative of her practical thinking: “How People Come to be Psychic,” “Letting It Happen,” and “Specific Things You Can Do to Cultivate and Maintain Psi.” Her chapters range from the psychology of how boundaries expand when we feel love, to abstract but absorbing physics concepts. There’s something for our brains that love information, something for those who want to expand their view of how the universe works, and lots of stories that might be instantly familiar to any of us and make us think, “Hey, that happened to me!”
Our sixth sense is enhanced and enabled by an open and empathic heart. There are many interviews with intuitives from all over the country and they have a fascinating resonance around the magic moment when an open hearted healer can deeply contribute to the healing of another. I love those stories.
For those of you with a strong sense of your intuitive abilities, the sections about HOW to interpret (don’t!) and how to report the information you are receiving are excellent.
As we close this year, it is my hope for all of you that your sixth sense and deep knowing flourish and nurture you. The winter solstice in December with its message of restoration, reflection and renewal is a perfect time to allow a more intimate connection with your own sixth sense.
