Have you ever considered that the food you eat could be limiting your awareness or sixth sense? First, let’s come to some understanding about what we mean when we refer to the Sixth Sense. Like many things today, we have definitions based on what we were taught at school or our personal experiences and backgrounds. Often our definition has been shaped by advertising or a famous book or movie. For people who haven’t used their own sixth sense but have seen the movie, they may assume that it means you see dead people. The truth is far more practical.
The sixth sense is simply an innate ability to feel energy.
As human beings, we have the five senses that help us navigate our way through life in a physical body. Perhaps less well known is that we also come equipped with a sixth sense that allows us to feel energy. This sixth sense is also referred to as clairsentience. You may think that some people have a sixth sense but believe you do not have it yourself– because you have not experienced it. Is it possible you have experienced it but chose to ignore it?
Generally speaking, we were not taught, by parents or teachers, that we have a sixth sense, let alone how to develop it. Like any faculty, if you don’t use it, you lose it. Lets assume it has gotten rusty from lack of use but it is still part of our divine make-up as a human being. So how do we kick start the use of our sixth sense in our lives?
This is where the conversation about diet comes in. It is well known that drugs and alcohol can change our perception. Most would agree that these substances impede our ability to respond responsibly to whatever life throws at us. Obviously, if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you won’t be able to feel energy, you may not even be able to feel your body or engage your brain under these circumstances. So it is a given that alcohol and drugs will be a real hindrance to you developing your sixth sense.
A lot of research is now pointing to the fact that many common foods including sugar affect our brains and bodies in similar ways to drugs and alcohol. I have been experimenting for several years now, eliminating items one at a time. The first to go was caffeine. I cannot possibly feel energy if I am on an artificial buzz causing me to rush around. Sugar falls into this same category. Then I decided to eliminate dairy. I noticed how my saliva changed, the mucus in my sinuses cleared up and I felt less emotional. That all had to be beneficial in re-connecting to my sixth sense. Then I eliminated gluten. Gone were the bloating, stomach pain, and heaviness of dragging my body around. I’m sure this also contributed to my growing sense of ‘knowing’ things that I had no logical way of knowing.
I’m not suggesting you eliminate all of these things at once. Listen to what your body is saying. If you are a ‘journal’ type of person, this is a great way to record the experience of how you feel when you eat certain foods and how you feel when you do not eat certain foods.
You are your own walking science laboratory. Make lab notes. Get into the experiment.
Getting in touch with your sixth sense, or clairsentience, is not easy to talk about. Its not like you suddenly get messages from God in a big booming voice. Neon signs do not light up as you are driving down the road. Suffice it to say, it is more subtle than that, but it is clear.
One night I couldn’t fall asleep. It just felt like something was amiss in the house. I got up, turned on the lights and walked around slowly sort of looking, sort of sensing if it was in this room or what it was that was disturbing me. I couldn’t find anything so went back to my bedroom. As I started to get into bed, I realized I had left a light on in another room. As I got up to go turn off the light, I saw a cobweb across a door way that I had walked through a few minutes earlier. I could see the cobweb was going into my laundry hamper. I opened it up and found a very large red back spider. I was planning to do laundry the following morning and would have just plunged my hand into the hamper, no doubt getting a very nasty surprise.
When you are engaging your sixth sense, there is a knowing. You just know.
After changing your diet and starting to develop your sixth sense, you can continue the experiment in an expanding laboratory, the world. You’ll notice that when you were deciding which road to take, you had a clear knowing of which way to go. The next day you see in the paper that there was an accident on the road that you did NOT take.
You will develop a trust in your knowing. It’s a feeling you have. You will start to recognize this ‘knowing’ as your sixth sense. Don’t doubt what you know. Letting go of doubt is perhaps harder than changing your diet.
“The greatest destroyer of Truth is doubt.”
Truth can never really be destroyed – but we can certainly distort it with our doubt. Your Sixth Sense is alive and well. You just need to start listening. You know if your ears are plugged with wax, you have to get them flushed out in order to hear properly. Think of changing your diet as something similar, you’re flushing out the body in order to hear what it is telling you.
