On Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, Chapter 14, The Sixth Sense

I begin my journey of this book toward the end. With the end goal or step in mind, we will then learn the steps to reach it.

The Sixth Sense

“This principle is the apex of the philosophy.” Napoleon Hill

What is the “Sixth Sense”? Mr. Hill defines it as a path through which Infinite Intelligence can communicate to us thought the Subconscious Mind and Creative Imagination. This communication is received as “flashes”, “hunches”, or “inspirations” and is only developed from within.

Mr. Hill makes it clear that this final height must be reached through the mastery of the other twelve steps. These steps being the skilled use of: Desire, Faith, Auto-suggestion, Specialized Knowledge, Imagination, Organized Planning, Decision, Persistence, Mastermind, Sex Energy Transmutation, The Subconscious Mind, and the Brain.

“…it is a mixture of both the mental and the spiritual.” Napoleon Hill

Personally, while I was reading this chapter, I remember when I was younger, how I loved to read anything and everything I could get my hands on a bout “The Sixth Sense”. Most being ESP stories, paranormalism, clairvoyance, precognition, etc. I found it absolutely riveting. I was filled with wonder.

This chapter is very heartening to me. To learn that my belief in an intangible “Force” was right on the button; an Infinite Intelligence, of many names, was true. It has filled me with hope, happiness, joy and most importantly, an over powering DESIRE to once again peruse this knowledge, now not just for curiosity or entertainment, but to grow, achieve and share.

Through the journey of reading this book, I have begun to realize the alternate meaning of some of the words in these chapters. They truly did not used to mean other things before. It’s like another stage of wakefulness, that over these past months, has begun to manifest. Is The Law of Attraction drawing new knowledge to my subconscious? The beginning of manifestation of the Sixth Sense?

“Invisible Counselors” Napoleon Hill

Mr. Hill speaks of the creation of a group of individuals that inspired him in his life. He created in his mind, in his Creative Imagination, a counsel of these individuals to teach him every night on how to rebuild his character.

I found the “Invisible Counselors” concept very intriguing. To create in my mind through the Sixth Sense and Creative Imagination a personal, private, growth Mastermind Group in order to rebuild my own character. Who do I want to become? Who do I aspire after? Who has knowledge and skills that I want to learn? What Units of Life do I want to attract from the Great Ocean of Life? What dominating Thoughts, Desires and Self-Talk should I tie to it? This I must craft, a DESIRE in itself.

Imagine yourself seated at a large conference table with some of the most brilliant minds in history. Imagine that they are all gathered to help you. Now, ask them to teach you what you want to know…

“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.” Napoleon Hill
