THE “thirteenth” principle, known as the SIXTH SENSE, through which Infinite Intelligence may, and will communicate voluntarily, without any effort from, or demands by, the individual.

This principle is the apex of the philosophy. It can be assimilated, understood, and applied ONLY by first mastering the other twelve principles.

The SIXTH SENSE is that portion of the subconscious mind, which has been referred to as the Creative Imagination. It has also been referred to as the “receiving set” through which ideas, plans, and thoughts flash into the mind. The “flashes” are sometimes called “hunches” or “inspirations.”

The sixth sense defies description! It cannot be described to a person who has not mastered the other principles of this philosophy, because such a person has no knowledge, and no experience with which the sixth sense may be compared. Understanding of the sixth sense comes only by meditation through mind development from within. The sixth sense probably is the medium of contact between the finite mind of man and Infinite Intelligence, and for this reason, it is a mixture of both the mental and the spiritual.

It is believed to be the point at which the mind of man contacts the Universal Mind.


Some of her laws are so incomprehensible that they produce what appear to be “miracles.” The sixth sense comes as near to being a miracle as anything I have ever experienced, and it appears so, only because I do not understand the method by which this principle is operated.


There is a power, an Intelligence, which permeates every atom of matter, and embraces every unit of energy perceptible to man—that this Infinite Intelligence converts acorns into oak trees, causes water to flow down hill in response to the law of gravity, follows night with day, and winter with summer, each maintaining its proper place and relationship to the other. This Intelligence may, through the principles of this philosophy, be induced to aid in transmuting DESIRES into concrete, or material form. The author has this knowledge, because he has experimented with it— and has EXPERIENCED IT.

I knew, of course, that all men have become what they are, because of their DOMINATING THOUGHTS AND DESIRES. I knew that every deeply seated desire has the effect of causing one to seek outward expression through which that desire may be transmuted into reality. I knew that self-suggestion is a powerful factor in building character, that it is, in fact, the sole principle through which character is builded.

With this knowledge of the principles of mind operation, I was fairly well armed with the equipment needed in rebuilding my character. In these imaginary Council meetings I called on my Cabinet members for the knowledge I wished each to contribute, addressing myself to each member in audible words, as follows:


I have become rather addicted to meeting with my Imaginary Council, I am more comfortable to spend a longer time in this exercise than I am in meditation. 

One of our goals is to grow as Influencers sufficiently high that people invite us onto their Imaginary Council.

My extreme experience of the power of the Sixth Sense and the Imaginary Council is one night in my dreams my father who was terminally ill came to me to let me know he was ready to pass on. “I understand. When are you planning this” I asked “ the 1st” he said. “No, you can’t go on that day it is my sisters birthday and it will be a sad day for many years if you die that day. Can you wait a day or two?” I requested.  “OK I will go Wednesday” was his reply. “Ok I will get myself there before then” I shared. Next morning I phoned the airline, Australia was in the middle of an airline dispute flights were rare, I booked a flight for Tuesday. Monday I went into work and told them I was taking the week off as my father would pass on Wednesday. “Is he on life support?” “No he is just going to die” I said and then realized I was disturbing the heck out of them.

I arrived late Tuesday and with the whole family around him that evening we had a fabulous close time with this awesome frail man.  I thought I was going to have a fabulous day all day Wednesday with him and he pass that night. But alas he passed at 12:15am Wednesday morning… just making it into Wednesday. My initial feeling was that of being ripped off, my selfishness, until I acknowledge how much extra energy was required to survive the extra days.

Thank you Dad for those special few hours with you and as a close-knit family.

Thank you each and every one of you for empowering us through your sharing.
