Checking Your 6th Sense

by Ron Kurtus (updated 18 May 2023)

Because of the large number of people who have had such extra-sensory experiences as foreseeing the future, seeing what seemed to be spirits, and possibly reading the minds of others, there is a good probability that all humans have what is called a 6th sense.

Some people seem to have it more than others. It is possible to verify that you have this sense and perhaps even improve your sensitivity to it.

Questions you may have include:

This lesson will answer those questions.

Everyone has all senses

Just as almost everyone has the senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch, likewise everyone has the 6th sense. Of course, there are some people who have unfortunately lost one or more of their senses, due to injury or illness, but in general everyone has all of these senses.

Since the 6th sense is a very weak sense, many people go through life without realizing their extra capabilities.

Just like some people have sharper vision than most other people, some people also have a more sensitive 6th sense than others.

Verifying you have 6th sense

Since this sense is also very unpredictable, it is sometimes difficult to verify that you have it. You may have experienced using the 6th sense and not even have realized it. One exercise is to try to recall events where your 6th sense was possibly working:

Recalling these events shows that there were times in your life when you used what appeared to be your 6th sense.

Improving your 6th sense

Just as it is very difficult—if not impossible—to improve your vision through exercises, it is also difficult to improve your 6th sense capabilities beyond what you were born with. On the other hand, you can improve your sensitivity to your 6th sense, just like you can be more aware of your other senses.

One thing to remember is that the 6th sense seems to work less the harder a person tries to use it. It seems to work the best when you don't try.

Consider the exercise above, where you recalled times when it seemed you were experiencing your 6th sense. Now think back and try to remember exactly how you felt when that event happened. Then try some predictions, guesses or other exercises similar to those explained in Sixth Sense Experiments.

By practicing using those feelings, you may be able to improve your 6th sense capabilities. Note that getting those feelings also includes being more sensitive to all of your senses.


Everyone seems to have the sixth sense. You can verify it for yourself by recalling times when you had experiences that can be classified as using your 6th sense. You may be able to improve your awareness of your 6th sense by trying to get the same internal feelings as you did on those times you used your 6th sense.

Being honest is a virtue
