ZEN+ : Helping you Stay Young and Age Well

Do you believe in ghosts?

By Marcus Santer


With it being the 6 week school holidays, Clarabella, Ollie and I decided to go to Berry Pomeroy Castle yesterday.

Now after my visit, I’ve a couple of issues…

One, It’s the least castley-castle I think I’ve ever seen.


Two, It’s supposedly the most haunted castle in England.

R == E == A == L == Y

But it was a great place to visit, have a picnic, hang out with my family and fool around for a few hours.

Now then…

Do you believe in ghosts?

I don’t.

I want to.

I want to believe in:

And I also want to believe The Secret works.

But you know what?

I haven’t seen, heard or experienced ANYTHING to back up these beliefs as having any validity to them.

Now some say: ‘You’ll see it when you believe it.’

Well, between the ages of 17 and 40 I researched, practiced and threw myself whole-heartedly into:

And more Woo than you could shake a magic stick at.

And I believed and I saw nothing.

Even as a child I was fascinated with monsters and as soon as I was old enough to be let out of the house on my own I was travelling and camping all over Dartmoor – at well known sites – hunting for ghosts, pixies and phantom dogs to name a few.

And guess what?

Apart from scaring myself a few times I never saw, heard or experienced ANYTHING to back up the claims.

So from my own direct experience (accept no substitute folks) I’ve reached the conclusion that I will believe it when I see, hear or experience it.

And that’s why after about 24 years of being a true believer in the supernatural, The Secret and all the other woo-woo stuff out there I gave it all up and embraced science.

Here’s the thing I love about science:

Science is constantly in flux and always being updated
and you can change your mind when new data emerges.

Do realise how liberating that is?

Yes the scientific community has its problems with positive results being favoured over negative results and so on – but you know what?

You can use simple scientific rules:

  1. Test ideas by experiment and observation
  2. Build on those ideas that pass the test, reject the ones that fail
  3. Follow the evidence wherever it leads
  4. And question everything

From Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey

And so much more.

Make me choose between: Science



And I’ll choose science every single day of the year.

And it’s thanks to following the evidence wherever it leads that I can hand on heart say if you apply what you read in my ZEN+ book you can stack the odds of a longer, healthier and happier life in your favour.

Not because I say so…

But because the repeatable evidence proves it.

Bye for now
