"To access the hidden layers of reality — through what is typically called intuitive, psychic or inner senses — you do not need any special knowledge or gift. You do not even need to know what to expect. All you need is an open mind. You cannot do this by trying to be open; an open mind is met through the transformation and release of fear. An open mind is a mind not limited by fear.
A mind that is open is curious and seeks what is unknown, instead of projecting what you fear onto the unknown.
An open mind assigns space for new meaning, instead of trying to make all experience fit into what is already known.
Closed minds atrophy through a need for consistency — an open mind wants to expand and change."
