Nexus Points

Nexus points are most often discussed in conjunction with Ley Lines. Ley Lines are said to be invisible lines across the surface of the Earth which possess or enhance magical or paranormal properties at their intersecting points. While much has been made of them in certain circles and amongst certain enthusiasts, no real conclusive anything has come to light.

While there are some interesting coincidences as to how certain landmarks and features seem to line up (particularly in Europe), my personal theory is that this was a practical matter for ancient peoples who used these landmarks as exactly that: travel guides. Of course, they may very well have felt that there were some mystical properties to these features and/or the way they lined-up, but we may never know. Still, I tend to largely discount anything having to do with Ley Lines.

On quite the other hand, I believe there is some kind of evidence for "nexus points" - places, locations, areas which for whatever reason lay at the center of, or form a bridge between, our corporeal world (the Prime Material Plane, in many cases) and The Other Side (Spirit World, Dead World, even sometimes the Astral Plane - though this latter is incorrect). In particular, there are places such as the Borley Rectory, which do not seem to fit into any preconceived notions of your typical haunted house.

We've all heard the concepts of how, if a house is built on consecrated, holy, or "haunted" land, the structure itself will play host to the spirits there. True to form, when the Borley Rectory was destroyed, the remains of a young woman were found to be buried beneath the basement.

But there is a question as to "Veridical Imagery," or "Afterimage," a term with which even experienced investigators might not be aware, though they all know the concept: that great distress, pain, or emotional hardship can leave what is basically an emotional photograph on an area that becomes visible or even active (as emotional motion pictures) at times and/or to different people (often called "Sensitives," "psychics," or "mediums").
