Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Using the same guided imagery techniques she teaches her clients, Belleruth Naparstek shows the reader how to train and use the sixth sense in the same manner one would use any of the other five senses in order to perceive things beyond normal cognition. Naparstek's guided imagery approach not only increases psychic sensitivity, but benefits one's emotional and physical well-being. The approach taken in Your Sixth Sense is clear and systematic, revealing the mechanisms behind the sixth sense, and avoiding the sideshow tendencies of other books on the subject. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“Belleruth’s insights are practical, grounded, validating and helpful. This is a well-researched, thoughtful how-to book . . . There is truly something here for everyone.” (Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom)

“Excellent…sophisticated…I can’t recommend this book enough.” (Carolyn Myss, Ph.D., author of Anatomy of the Spirit)

“Psychic abilities are our birthright, part of who we are. They are also a razor’s edge, as every spiritual tradition has realized. Wise guides are needed in exploring this area. Belleruth Naparstek is such a guide. This is a fine contribution to exploring our human potential.” (Larry Dossey, author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things)

“Naparstek’s penetrating study of intuitives has informed this brilliant classic, which unites the logic of the mind with the wisdom of the heart…Grounded in the cultivation of empathy, the exercises in this book will open your heart and expand your sense of intimate connectedness wit this remarkable universe.” (Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind and A Woman's Book of Life)

“I have personally experienced what has been written. I believe we are entering a period when science will have to confront and study human potential. I suggest skeptics and all those interested in enhancing their psychic potential read this book.” (Bernie Siegel, MD, author of Love, Medicine & Miracles)

“One of the most brilliant books on the subject. A guided tour of psychic ability-what it is, where it comes from and how it words. Written with eloquence and humor, this work is destined to become ‘book of the year.’” (Ruth Buczynski, Ph.D., president of the National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine)

“I do not know of any other book that combines the wisdom of a psychotherapist, the knowledge of a scholar, the skill of a master hypnotist, the sensitivity of a psychic intuitive, and the memories of a remarkable collection of gifted practitioners. This book is a treasure!” (Jeffrey Mishlove, Ph.D., author of The Roots of Consciousness)

More About the Author

Psychotherapist, author, speaker and guided imagery pioneer Belleruth Naparstek is the creator of the popular, 59-title, Health Journeys guided imagery audio series. Her first book, Staying Well with Guided Imagery (Warner) is a widely used primer on imagery and healing. Her second book, Your Sixth Sense (Harper Collins), has been translated into 9 languages. Her latest book on imagery and posttraumatic stress, Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How They Heal (Bantam Dell), won the Spirituality & Health Top 50 Books Award. Highlighted in their 20th anniversary edition of their seminal book, Courage to Heal, Ellen Bass and Laura Davis call Invisible Heroes, "the most useful book for trauma survivors to be published in the last decade".

As Prevention Magazine recently noted, Belleruth has been quietly creating an underground revolution among mainstream health and mental health bureaucracies, by persuading major institutions such as the U.S. Veteran's Administration, The American Red Cross, Aetna U.S. Healthcare, Kaiser Permanente, Blue Shield of California, United Health Care, Oxford Health Plan, GlaxoSmithKline, Ortho Biotech, Roche, Abbott, Amgen, and nearly 2000 hospitals, mental health centers, recovery clinics and vet centers to distribute her guided imagery recordings, in most instances free of charge to recipients.

In addition, her audio programs have been involved in over two-dozen clinical trials, with over a dozen studies completed to date. Efficacy has been established for several psychological and medical challenges, most recently for PTSD at Duke University Medical Center/Durham Veterans Administration Hospital.

Naparstek received both undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Chicago. She maintained her psychotherapy practice for over 30 years and for several years taught graduate students at The Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, Case Western Reserve University. Earlier in her career, she supervised psychiatry residents at Cambridge Hospital/Harvard Medical School and was Chief of Consultation & Education at the Woodburn Center for Community Mental Health in Fairfax County, VA. She also did a brief stint as a musical comedy actress at Second City and The Tip Top Tap of the Allerton Hotel in Chicago, and says that her musical comedy skills sometime come in handy for teaching.

Customer Reviews

The book was bought as a gift for someone that does counselling and they are eager to read it.

YOUR SIXTH SENSE is probably one of the BEST books I could recommend to someone that believes they "may" have enhanced intuitive skills.
VickiVeil
I was delighted at the depth of her understanding of the topics of intuition and psychic experiences.

Format: Paperback
Each week on a spiritual live radio show, I review a book that will assist you as you open your senses and thoughts to universal energy. So I get to read for my job! How blessed.
I look for practical and understandable books that will explain in detail for the beginner, and continue knowledge and share new techniques of learning for the old hand. YOUR SIXTH SENSE is probably one of the BEST books I could recommend to someone that believes they "may" have enhanced intuitive skills.
Belleruth interviewed 40 ethical, practicing psychics and healers. She shares the common denominators that she found within this select group. Such as a high percentage of the sensitives were only children. A high ratio had suffered through either abuse of some form or extreme trauma before they noticed that they were receiving psychic information.
The book goes on to speak on how you can continue to engage in meditation, how to trust your intuition, she describes some of the terms you may hear as you venture into learning more about the use of psi, and my favorite part, she gives some terrific guidelines on spiritual and psychic ethics. Being psychic carries a huge responsibilty. I mean what do you do when you are chatting with someone, and all of a sudden you feel, hear, or see information (be it good or bad) on the person with whom you are chatting? Is it an intrusion to give information when it has not been asked for?
Read the book and see what Belleruth has to say.
I loved it.

Ms. Naparstek's new book is amazing. She shows us a whole new way to view the solid, material world that is incredibly liberating and intellectually interesting as well. (And she doesn't sound like she's writing a technical manual either, even when she's getting reeeeally technical, which isn't often anyway.) Her theories on intuition and "psychic" phenomena are incredibly un-"new-agey" and backed up with her own experience and a full set of credentials. Best of all, once she's finishing explaining it, she shows you how to enhance your own psychic awareness in simple ways you probably never thought about. No matter how skeptical you are (I am!), this book is definitely worth your time.

As a practicing psychotherapist, organizational development consultant and faculty member of the famed Gestalt Institute of Cleveland, I'll always be a lifelong student of human behavior and our collective possibilities. I've recommended B.Naparstek's guided imagery tapes to clients for the last five years. Always with great success. Her previous book, "Staying well with guided imagery" was a great addition to the well thumbed books I'll referr to for life. Her latest book, "Your sixth sense", is the tour de force that no, not even anyone baby psychic skills could have predicted.

The reasons "Your sense sixth" is such a major contribution to all the social sciences is because of its profound grasp of complex human phenomena that is simply explained. Naparstek allows anyone who reads this work TO OWN their psychic ability through "ah ha", I've been there re-experiencing AS THEY READ her work and she gives wonderfully clear suggestions about HOW anyone can enlarge their psychic knowing. For years, practitioners have been referencing the phenomena of energy and human energy field, Naparstek easily guides us through complex reviews to help literally wrap our minds around the physics of what energy is about and how we can have more of it. Frankly, I hope this text becomes the forever classic it so richly deserves to be. "Your sixth sense" is the most grounded approach to what has typically been the stuff delegated to metaphysics and practitioners of esoteric wisdom. Here finally, we can all get on the same wave of ancient thinking, honed with cutting edge insights and delivered in a manner that empowers any reader to enlarge their vocabulary of action for the complexities of everyday life.

Format: Paperback
The first half of this interesting and insightful book explores the questions of who,what,why & how psychic talent is developed based on interviews with 43 reputable intuitives and healers. The second half has practical, down-to-earth meditations for developing your intuition. She even explains sophisticated & complex theories such as Bebtov's Pendulum and David Bohm's theory on universal energy so that a layman can understand! I've read hundreds of books on the subject and this is one of the best. She is a gifted teacher and I thank her for this book.

Format: Paperback
As an Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Coach, I teach people to develop their emotional intelligence competencies, one of which is Intuition. As Naparstek is so quick to point out -- we all have it, it's just a matter of developing it and using. Now, the clients with relatively high Intuition already, know "intuitively" what it's all about. But those other folks?? They're the ones who need a good scientific explanation (empirical evidence, upon which my coaching is based) to help them bridge the gap. In a field such as coaching, empirical evidence (scientific fact) is rare. This gave me just what i needed, has helped me develop my own Intuition and stay safer. Read it and get to work!
