You can practice Knowing When To Start by paying attention to the hum and the twinge. You may feel either sensation in your abdomen, a gut response, or your chest as a heartfelt feeling. Usually, the twinge arises from the gut, and will often give you a tight or uncomfortable feeling. The hum is usually felt in the heart area of the chest. It gives you a feeling of harmony or smoothness. But there are many variations to the possible feelings and where they are felt.
Knowing When to Stop sets boundaries, which puts guidelines in place. Kites have strings and rivers have banks for a reason. Your life needs boundaries to focus your intention and abilities to maximize your learning and strengths.
Knowing How to Control Yourself is of utmost importance in developing self-direction. You choose how to Control Yourself according to what you need or want with the people and situations in which you are involved. That choice is based upon two important skills of self-direction: self-awareness and self-reflection. Your self-awareness and self-reflection underlay the methods in which you direct yourself.
We might think of Sharing as giving away or reducing a part of what we have. However, Sharing is the foundation of abundance, as it is the true nature of the universe.

Cooperate is one of the broadest-reaching of The Six Principles. Cooperate means to combine your interests and efforts with those of other people to reach an outcome. However, according to The Six-Sided Circle, to Cooperate is intentionally accessing your stillness, then uniting your energy, thoughts, emotions, and actions to harmoniously achieve a common good.
Cooperation comes from within you as a desire and interest to integrate or extend beyond yourself to provide your 100% to someone, or something larger than you. Cooperation interweaves the needs and wants of the individual within various environments, with the needs and wants of other people and situations.
Selena stated, “The last principle is Communicate. Communication is critical because we are always communicating in one form or another.”
