Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to be a paranormal investigator in a well-known haunted location? It takes a special kind of person to take the plunge and venture into the unknown. Imagine a small group of investigators who find themselves alone in a long dark hallway of an abandoned hospital.
They set up equipment to begin their investigation. They’re laughing and joking around with each other, when out of nowhere the atmosphere changes. They feel eyes peering at them from the shadows within patient rooms and detect the presence of someone, or something, closing in on them. A fear so deep that it’s unrecognizable begins to settle in and tighten their chests. Without speaking they take a deep breath and prepare to leave. As they calmly turn to walk down the hall, they feel as if a being is breathing down the back of their necks. Even the staunchest skeptic couldn’t deny the feeling. What do they do? Are their feelings valid or are they letting their imagination get away from them? Are they about to encounter an actual ghost? They sit on the cold floor mid-hall, and turn their flashlights off to start asking questions. Will they get answers on their digital recorders or readings on the EMF detectors…or any of their equipment? As their eyes get accustomed to the darkness, they can see details of the walls and door frames breaking up the long flat surface. At the end of the hall they watch the darkness become darker and a figure begins to manifest right before their eyes. Instinctively they slowly reach for their cameras fearful that the movement or flash will make the figure disappear but at the same time fearful that it will make a full manifestation.
Before they have time to raise their cameras, the dark mass morphs into a human figure. It’s obvious to them by the broad shoulders that taper down to a narrow but muscular waste that it’s an adult male. Then he appears to take a step toward them. They all press down on the camera button and flashes start to light up the hall. Being seasoned investigators they know that its best to take pictures in three’s and have their camera settings adjusted to take three photos in rapid succession.
The flashes created a strobe effect and to their surprise the figure that was just a shadow began to show details, the man was actually wearing scrubs and he didn’t seem happy about them being there. In a blink of an eye the man in scrubs was there then vanished before their eyes, not only did the figure vanish, but the feeling of impending doom and near paralyzing fear was gone. It was as if a tornado ripped through the hall and was suddenly gone and had never happened. The team composes themselves then begins to search for the man and try to make contact but with no luck. They decide to review their equipment to see if they caught any evidence of what had just occurred. To their disappointment they only caught themselves on the recorders and the frantic flashing of their cameras only caught the hallway.
When you go into a haunted location, be prepared to get a fright, meet a spirit, have no questions answered, and possibly go home empty handed with only the story of an unbelievable spirit encounter. But then again, you may walk away with plenty of evidence that you mingled with the dead.
- Evaluate if your feelings are valid or if your imagination is running away from you
- Take pictures in rapid succession of three’s
- What you see isn’t evidence if your equipment doesn’t catch it, it’s a personal experience

An awakening was not scheduled in Michael Linenberger’s calendar, but it happened anyway. Fortunately for us, he was paying attention, and the result is Simple Awakening: The Power of Inner Silence (New Academy Publishers).
Michael Linenberger is a successful businessman, a former VP in a large management consulting firm with several best-selling books on workday management to his credit. Starting in late 2012, Michael experienced an extraordinary, positive change happening spontaneously in his life. A profound inner silence began developing, one that grew stronger and stronger each day. From that silence, a fundamental set of life transformations emerged:
•Work became easy, life became easy, and all striving ceased.
•All fears and doubts disappeared.
•Unconditional happiness—bliss—moved in.
Perhaps most important, a profound and accurate intuition began guiding his life to greater and greater achievements, both in his business and personal life. All these changes occurred through something Michael calls simple awakening—which he feels nearly everyone has the potential to achieve.
In an extraordinarily practical way, Michael tells the story of this amazing transformation unfolding over three years in Simple Awakening: The Power of Inner Silence. Most important, he explains what awakening can mean to you: what it looks like, how you might cultivate it, and the many ways it could revolutionize your entire life.
Michael Linenberger has held major roles in the field of information technology and business management for over twenty years. A former vice president at a large, international management consulting firm, he also worked as head of technology at U.S. Peace Corps. An expert on managing work tasks and communication, Michael has written seven books on workday productivity, among them several best sellers.
Michael holds a B.S. and M.S. from The University of Massachusetts. He started his career in 1976 as a scientist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In the 1980s, he worked as a civil engineer designing foundations for some of the largest buildings in San Diego, California. For more than forty years, Michael has also been interested in the development of consciousness. He is a popular speaker with insightful talks and seminars on how to improve one’s business and personal life.
Michael’s story of awakening is so heartfelt. This book will keep you turning the pages as you realize that the blissful core of who you are is available to you, just below the surface, in simple silence.

This book has taken me by surprise! Michael is a beautiful writer and, he’s written something so important, of great value. I love this book!
– Jennifer Read Hawthorne, coauthor, #1 New York Times bestseller Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul and author, The Soul of Success
Michael demystifies the process of ‘awakening’ as he explains his experiences and their meaning. Michael has masterfully conveyed the real-life impact and potential of awakening—and how simple it is!
– Susan Marcinelli, PhD, former Senior VP, Innovation & Leadership, Best Buy
Michael’s book is so needed! It’s very inspirational because it shows that awakening is achievable. It gives people hope that they can actually get to that place of expanded consciousness.
