Being A Sceptic Is Oh So Easy by Linn B Halton
Being A Sceptic Is Oh So Easy

It’s the easy option, isn’t it? As a sceptic you have nothing to explain or justify; if you see, feel or hear something unexplained, you can tell yourself you have an over-active imagination. Each experience becomes an isolated memory that you can conveniently file away in the attic of your mind. Keeping each very separate is the key, your subconscious tells you not to make connections and not to question. Until one day something happens and you begin to see that it is like a jig-saw puzzle and the pieces begin to fall into place. The truth is life-changing.

Being A Sceptic Is Oh So Easy by Linn B Halton

It’s the easy option, isn’t it? As a sceptic you have nothing to explain or justify; if you see, feel or hear something unexplained, you can tell yourself you have an over-active imagination. Each experience becomes an isolated memory that you can conveniently file away in the attic of your mind. Keeping each very separate is the key, your subconscious tells you not to make connections and not to question. Until one day something happens and you begin to see that it is like a jig-saw puzzle and the pieces begin to fall into place. The truth is life-changing.
‘Being A Sceptic Is Oh So Easy’ is the story of my personal journey to a point in my life where I can now say that I truly believe in ‘life after death’. It began with unusual experiences I had in houses I have lived in or visited, some with over 200 years of history. Then the loss of beloved family members triggered new and unexpected psychic connections. The grieving process was so hard to bear, but gradually I came to learn that they are still close and their guidance would end up taking me in a whole new direction. It would also make me take a fresh look at what I had so conveniently ‘filed away’ as unexplained or imagined, and the jig-saw began to take shape.

Excerpt from ‘Being A Sceptic Is Oh So Easy’:-
1. COMING OUT
I don’t think this book could possibly have had any other title, and for me it is a statement that holds more truth than the words impart.
I have to admit that I’ve been a ‘closet’ believer in the existence of life after death for a number of years. Looking back over what has happened, the real turning point for me was probably in June 2004 and you’ll read about that significant event a little later. However, despite continuing experiences that were increasingly difficult to ignore, I still managed quite successfully to let any trace of belief slip quietly to the back of my mind until fairly recently. When you see, hear or feel ‘a presence’, the memory tends to stay with you, but it’s very convenient to just let it settle undisturbed and out of sight. You never completely forget – you just hide from it for a while, because then you don’t have to deal with the reality of what it implies.
As you read this story, you will learn that my husband Lawrence and I are ‘serial’ movers; we’ve lived in thirteen very different properties to date. When our last house was on the market, I stood chatting to the Estate Agent whilst the young couple he brought along wandered around the property. I told him that I had fallen in love with the house the moment I walked through the little gate at the front, over which the branches of a large holly tree dipped quite splendidly. I told him that I knew we would live there, even before we had stepped inside the front door. This started a discussion about the different atmospheres that houses can have, and having spent a couple of years working for an Estate Agent carrying out viewings myself, we began to swap stories.
I’m finding that is quite a typical reaction. People are hesitant to raise the subject, but as soon as it crops up everyone seems to know of someone who has had a brush with paranormal activity. What is amazing is the number of proclaimed sceptics who have actually had an experience themselves. This doesn’t sound very logical, until you realise that as a sceptic you have nothing to explain or defend. I’m afraid ‘coming out’ is the really scary part. Both of my parents are now on the other side and it is with their help that I have been able to move forward with my beliefs. They head up a long queue of loved ones who aren’t content to let me sit back any longer.
This is my personal journey, it explains how I have arrived at this turning point and why I can now say, with heart-felt sincerity, I really do believe in life after death.


2. OK, I GIVE UP, I’LL SIT DOWN AND WRITE IT


It might be helpful if I start by explaining that this isn’t an autobiography; it’s also not my intention to try to turn readers who do not believe, into believers. I think you have to experience this for yourself and if you don’t, then you ‘aren’t ready’ to see the bigger picture. So this is simply the story of how I came to believe that life after death really does exist. I have been shown that those who have ‘passed’ are still around us, and are influential in our lives on a daily basis.
…and that is how the story begins……..
