We know what is meant by our senses: Touch, Taste, Smell, Sight & Sound. We use these senses to help us to discover and survive the world around us.These senses are the first five senses and instinctive within us. The Sixth Sense however, works on a higher level and requires us to raise our awareness to fully access it. The 6th sense is another name for Intuition
How to activate our 6th Sense
To activate our 6th Sense – our Intuition – we need to understand that as well as our physical body we also have a personality, a soul and a spirit. Our personalities reflect how we feel, think and emotionally react and respond. We may be able to see and touch our physical body but we can’t see our thoughts or touch our feelings. We can’t hold them in the same way we can hold someone’s arm or hug them.
However, despite not being able to physically touch or see them, we know our personality traits exist.
The same applies with our Soul and Spirit
Some people find it difficult to get their head around the idea that we have a soul. Many are aware of something driving them from within, but not sure exactly what it is.
That driving force is our soul – or higher self – trying to guide our personalities to move in the direction that will satisfy the spiritual intention. (See also Soul Functions)
Have you ever wondered why, for some people, everything they turn their hand to turns to gold. While for others, no matter how hard they try, something often seems to get in the way, like obstacles preventing them from proceeding. There may be karmic reasons if this keeps on happening.
When we’re naturally in harmony with the universe – all is well. But when we’re out of step, it’s like trying to walk against the tide. It’s unlikely we will get very far before we eventually run out of energy.
Everyone wants life to work for them. No-one wants to battle in order to survive. It makes sense for all of us to attempt to align our personalties to the Will of the Soul and walk more easily in tune with the universe.
If we activate our intuition we can help ourselves to fulfill the desires of the higher self. Our higher self wants us to get it right. Our higher self wants us to live in peace and harmony with one another. Often, what stops us from moving forward, and enjoying our life, are our own personalities insisting on moving in directions, and staying in situations with people, that are not right or healthy for us.
Our higher self doesn’t want us working in jobs that conflict with the true nature of who we are, or becoming emotionally exhausted trying to make relationships work that are not meant to be.
If we paid attention to our intuition we would know when it is time to change jobs or move on from relationships that do not work.
The Qabalistic Tree of Life can help us in a very practical, down to earth way. The teachings can help us to become more aware of who we are and what we want, and to make that connection with the higher self, our intuition (6th sense).
This way we can free ourselves from negative attitudes and self imposed bondage, and start to:
Live our Life in a Way that is Right for Us
