Metal in cemeteries can be a problem, or a sign of something paranormal.
First, the problem with metal in cemeteries
Metal can retain magnetic charge.
It’s so common, you must do a baseline check of anything metal near your equipment.
That includes things that might contain metal, such as:
- Reinforced cement walls
- Gravestones with metal supports (inside) or broken headstones repaired with metal.
Case Study – Northfield, NH (USA)
At a Northfield (NH, USA) graveyard, we kept seeing fleeting EMF spikes near the stone wall surrounding the cemetery.
Looking closely, we discovered that a tree had grown around some barbed wire. It was barely noticeable at dusk.
We double-checked it the next day, on follow-up visit in daylight.
To our surprise, parts of the wire had magnetic energy.
So, look carefully for any metal that might need a baseline check.
But… what if…?
Consider the flip side of that.
Metal might attract ghostly energy, as well.
So, I recommend looking for metal when you’re in a haunted cemetery.
As long as you do baseline checks, so the metal doesn’t skew your EMF readings, you might be in a “hot” spot for hauntings.
Here’s what I’ve found:
- Metal – and I don’t mean just shiny, reflective metal – seems to increase the likelihood of orbs. As you can see in the photos, below, orbs show up around old, corroded and mossy metal.
- We seem to record better EVP around metal in cemeteries. Is it acting like an antenna or an amplifier? Maybe.
- Often, the metal – especially wrought iron – seems to get twisted. But how? It’s unlikely anyone did that with their bare hands.
Yes, reasonable explanations exist for some twisted cemetery fences… but not enough to explain the volume of distortion in haunted cemeteries across the U.S. and Britain.
Typical metal in haunted cemeteries
These photos show metal in some graveyards and cemetery plots.
Watch out for metal that can skew your EMF readings.
Look for twisted and deformed metal that’s just plain weird.
