“Sixth Sense”

1. What is sixth sense?Sixth sense, or subtle perception ability, is our ability to perceive the subtle dimension or the unseen world of angels, ghosts, heaven, etc. It also includes our ability to understand the subtle cause and effect relationship behind many events, which is beyond the understanding of the intellect. Extrasensory perception (ESP), clairvoyance, premonition, intuition are synonymous with sixth sense or subtle perception ability.2. How do we perceive and understand the unseen world?We perceive the gross or seen world through the five physical senses (i.e. smell, taste, sight, touch and sound), our mind (our feelings), and our intellect ...view middle of the document...

The ability to perceive or experience the subtle dimension through the five subtle senses, subtle mind and subtle intellect is known as one’s sixth sense.
3. Sixth sense perception through the five subtle sense organs
The world is made from the five absolute cosmic elements . These cosmic elements cannot be seen but make up all of creation. When our sixth sense gets activated, we begin to perceive these absolute elements progressively, beginning from the most gross to the most subtle. Thus, we are able to perceive them in the order of the Absolute Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether elements through our subtle sense of smell, taste, vision, touch and sound respectively.
The following table provides examples of positive and negative spiritual experiences that we may perceive through our sixth sense, that is, through the medium of the five subtle senses.

When a person perceives something through a subtle sense organ, e.g. smell, the source could be from a positive energy like a deity or a negative energy like a ghost.
4. How does one develop the sixth sense?
The subtle world is all around us; however, we cannot perceive this world. Even though we cannot perceive the subtle world, it impacts our lives to a great extent. In order to tune into this world we need a ‘spiritual antenna’, i.e. our sixth sense needs to be awakened. Our sixth sense grows when we do spiritual practice. With regular spiritual practice done according to the six basic principles of Spirituality, we increase our spiritual level and are able to perceive and experience the subtle world to greater degrees.

This is akin to a television set that gives a black and white speckled blur when it is not connected to an antenna. Even if the television station is transmitting signals, the television set cannot catch them until it is connected to an antenna. In the same way, the subtle world and God's presence is constantly around us, but we do not perceive it until we start doing spiritual practice which in turn enables our sixth sense.
Sometimes we see people who have the ability to perceive the subtle world from a very young age even though they have not done any spiritual practice. The reason for this is that they have attained the requisite spiritual level from spiritual practice done in a past birth (previous life). Another reason this may happen is because they have been possessed by a ghost (sorcerer) since childhood. In this case, it is actually the sorcerer’s sixth sense that is displayed.
5. Sixth sense and spiritual level
As our spiritual level goes on increasing, we are able to progressively perceive a greater extent of the subtle world through our subtle perception ability, that is, our sixth sense. The following table shows how our sixth sense grows with increasing spiritual level.

From the above table, we can see that the maximum that can be perceived by the subtle sense organs is achieved at the 70% spiritual level. Hence, with further increase in spiritual...
