6 Challenge | A Struggle To Be Accepting & To Release Control
Knowing your Challenge numbers and understanding their meaning can open a window of understanding during each phase of your Pinnacles.
To know what you’re up against is often half the battle of being able to fully embody your passionate purpose in life! Challenge numbers aren’t meant to be overcome—rather they indicate what you must become.
I view the Challenge numbers (particularly the 3rd or Main Challenge) as the KEYS TO YOUR CASTLE!
Why? Because most often, when the Challenge is mastered, it’s a vital yet mysterious missing link that becomes your best friend rather than your worst foe. Trust me on this.
The issue here is that when a number presents itself to you as a Challenge, it’s bombarding you with the destructive aspects of that number while simultaneously demanding that you operate in the constructive aspects of the number.
We can also see the Challenge numbers as indicative of certain weaknesses we have that we’re being asked to improve upon and turn into strengths.
The Challenge number by definition is confrontational. This number challenges you to overcome the opposing energies while becoming aligned with—and embodying—the constructive elements associated with a particular number.
The Challenge numbers indicate specific areas where there are shortcomings in your character.
I’m making the assumption that you know how to calculate the Challenges, or you wouldn’t be searching for information about the 6 Challenge!

When you experience a 6 Challenge during one of your Pinnacles, you’ll most likely feel burdened or overwhelmed by family (or career) obligations.
You’re learning to serve others and strike a balance between honoring your commitments to them with your commitments to yourself. This is no small task.
Remember: Even if you’re able to achieve some semblance of balance between giving to yourself and being there to support others, you can’t and shouldn’t try to avoid caring for others under the influence of a 6 Challenge.
If you’re operating with the destructive tendencies of the 6 Challenge, you may be myopically self-centered or self-motivated to the exclusion of being a helpful and nurturing presence to others.
This Challenge is often related to codependency, enmeshment, and giving for misguided reasons. Rest assured that you’ll be alerted when you’re taking care of others in an unhealthy way during this 6 Challenge. (ahem…)
You’re prone to demanding extraordinarily high standards from other people (and of yourself), which is in itself a setup for frustration and unhappiness. There’s no way others could live up to your expectations.
When leaning the 6 Challenge, you’re apt to come across as authoritarian, intolerant, and self-righteous. If you don’t step back into the constructive aspects of the 6 energy, your tendency during this time may well be to get lodged in cynicism, criticism, and judgment. And to burn a lot of relationship-bridges along the way.
Avoiding friction in relationships by emphasizing harmony, using diplomacy at every turn, and allowing others to set their own pace and live their own perfectly imperfect lives will be the key strategies for rising above the 6 Challenges.
Ultimately, your challenge lies in learning, embracing, and practicing unconditional love and acceptance.
Potential Destructive Aspects of the 6 Challenge
- Feelings of superiority and thoughts of judgment
- Being angry and disappointed with others and yourself to the point of anger or cynicism
- Becoming self-absorbed and uninterested in helping or supporting others
- Becoming such a perfectionist that you feel paralyzed and fearful
- Living in denial of your emotional life
- Health issues that are often chest related (including asthma)
