That the graves all gaping wide,
Every one lets forth his sprite,
In the church-way paths to glide."
Ley lines are Paths of the Dead
Many old churches and burial mounds were built on ley lines. Washington DC is thought to have been built on ley lines so it could draw from the natural energy, in turn making it a powerful city. Some cultures such as the Laos dispose of a corpse by delivering them in a straight line to the burial site.
But what happens when a structure is built over these lines? This might explain why some spirits are seen walking through walls.
Dowsing rods are used by ghost hunters to detect these places of energy. In the paranormal community it is thought that spirits need energy to communicate with the living. Can they get this energy from ley lines?
Unless we discover ancient knowledge that has been missing from our past about the correlation between ley lines and spirits, for now it is just a theory.
