Using Your Sixth Sense

This Journal entry was born when I spotted these words printed on my tea bag: “Your head must bow to your heart.”

As a teacher, I know my sixth sense is the most important. While I honor the other five, I know that our sixth is the biggest in the scope of sheer power if utilized on a regular basis. Like a muscle, we can use it or lose it. It is the most divinely connected, like an always-available telephone line to our higher consciousness. It is always ready, just like a trusted friend who will gladly drop everything when you call.

I also know that the heart center is our largest energy center. Vibrationally, it is natural to come out of our heads and into our hearts. But most of us stay locked in our heads, analyzing, thinking, moving along as society tells us we must. Now don’t get me wrong. We’re here in Earth School now and we all get stuck in our ego or fear based selves more often than we like to admit.

I have a hunch, a funny feeling in the pit of my stomach…
hello sixth sensory vibrations!

A few tips to help open yourself to your Divine gifts:
Be Present. Yesterday is over and tomorrow isn’t here yet. In all you do in every moment- be there! Savor it, breathe into it, acknowledge it and make the most of it. No matter what you are doing, do it with presence.

But I am, you say! Consciously paying attention to your breath several times each day helps us to connect to our sixth sense. I find it to be an instant stabilizer. Whether happy, sad, furious, anxious, nervous, elated, it’s fun to breathe deeply and see what happens, feel the shift.

You do not have to set aside a long period of time each day. You would be amazed at what a mere 5 minutes can do. I’d be willing to bet 5 minutes will be very healing and will lead to another 5 minutes and so on. Before you know it, you will realize that you do feel better when you recharge by connecting to your higher self.

Pay Attention.
My teacher, Sonia Choquette, defines the subtleties of Divine energy: What am I feeling? How does this circumstance make me feel? What is my heart saying? What is making me feel tired, worn out, sick, or excited, happy, carefree, and fulfilled? I have a hunch, a funny feeling in the pit of my stomach, a light bulb moment, a chance encounter…hello sixth sensory vibrations!

So there you have it. The beginning of your journey into six sensory living is quite easy and simple…exactly the way Divine Spirit always intended it to be. I guarantee that if you start with these simple practices, you will notice a shift in the way that you look at your life.

While these sixth sensory tips seem too easy, I beg to differ. This is the foundation of your true self. Focusing our inner camera lens to help us establish a relationship with our higher consciousness. Everyone’s path may be a little different, but we are all ultimately headed in the same direction. Begin your journey!
