We all have the capacity to deepen and broaden our psychic abilities, according to Belleruth Naparstek, a psychotherapist and author of Your Sixth Sense: Activating Your Psychic Potential. It can come alive in conjunction with meditation, yoga, grief, a near-death experience, or guided imagery. And it can be stimulated by opening up the heart to others.

Naparstek believes that intuition is cultivated through receptivity and surrender to mysteries beyond the ego. She notes: "It's like going way inside, like Alice falling down the rabbit hole — you end up in a whole new territory without any boundaries." Hanging out with psychics can also serve as a catalyst to developing your own sixth sense.

Naparstek is convinced that more and more people are honoring psychic ability even though it is still marginalized in our culture where science and logic are king and queen. Increasingly, therapists and members of the medical profession are using their intuitive skills in the healing arts. Naparstek is a skilled and relaxed spokesperson for this fascinating phenomenon of the sixth sense.
