I use ley lines for ghost hunting. It’s how I discover haunted places that others overlook.
It’s a little difficult to explain, and that’s why I’m working on a second edition of my related book.
This one will include more information and more maps.
I’m hoping a picture (or a map) really is worth a 1000 words.
Here’s the TL:DR version…
I research all the weird things that happen in or near a known haunted (or creepy) location.
I keep researching, as long as I keep finding things that make me pause and mutter, “Wow, that’s bizarre.”
It could be a ghost story, a Bigfoot sighting, or a UFO report. It might be a Guinness Book event, or a crime that’s truly out-of-place for that locale. If it’s weird, I add it to my list.
Sometimes, my research covers hundreds of miles. And, I put a dot on the map for each and every story or event that I find.
And then I take out a ruler, and see which dots align.
Connecting the Dots… sort of
Though I call it “connecting the dots,” there’s more to it. I’m also looking for repeating patterns – dates, times of day, names, or whatever is most quirky about whatever-it-is.
History and geography are big components, but so is intuition.
The latter is the most difficult to explain in text… whether it’s here or in a book.
Talking about this to audiences hasn’t been much easier. But, when I show one of my maps, it can make more sense.
The fact is: some of my maps are so accurate, I’ve been able to predict – within feet – where people will report something ghostly. And, I can do that even if I’ve never visited the site.
Since the 1990s, I’ve studied ley lines to improve ghost hunting results.
My research is unique.
When I first noticed the alignment of some haunted sites, I contacted ley line researchers like Paul Devereux.
At that point, it looked like no one else had considered using ley lines for ghost hunting.
No one I contacted had heard of that use, anyway.
Since then, this has been an extraordinary adventure. My ley lines have been reliable, from paranormal reports in the White Mountains of NH to haunted sites in Salem, Massachusetts, and from ghosts of New Orleans’ French Quarter to UFOs in Quebec, Canada.
However, even before I could get the facts into people’s hands, word spread about my research.
So, in 2012, I threw some of my notes together as a book.
That wasn’t one of my better ideas. In my haste, I left too many questions unanswered.
What I do…? Apparently, it’s a more intuitive process than I’d realized. People complained that the book wasn’t thorough enough.
And, re-reading it from their perspective, they were right.
I quickly withdrew it from publication.
I’m working on a complete overhaul of that text, with a lot of additional maps to show how this works. I hope to publish the book soon.
It will be released with lots of supporting media and materials, to make ley lines useful for paranormal researchers in all fields.
As of late 2018, the book is nearly complete, and I’m editing it.
- Salem’s Haunted “Judges’ Line” – One of three ley lines that connect haunted sites in Salem and vicinity. This one connects major authority figures, especially on the legal side of the Salem Witch Trials.
- A Connecticut ley line, and some other ghost news stories that – if you mark their locations on a map – seem to line up. (Is it a ley line? Maybe.)
- Two parallel ley lines in northern New Hampshire, near the hotel once owned by Ghost Hunters’ Jason Hawes & Grant Wilson.
Here’s my book information:
Ley Lines for Ghost Hunters, by Fiona Broome (2nd edition in progress)
With a list of local haunts, a map, and a ruler, you can determine the best locations for paranormal research… even haunted places no one talks about.
In this book, I’ll show you how to find ley lines (sometimes called “energy lines”) that seem to connect paranormal, sacred, and unusual sites.
Book ETA: 2020 (Really. I mean it, this time. 2020 is my year to stay focused on updating my sites and my books. So far, so good!)
