I have a recipe for hot foot powder that includes graveyard dirt. There is a cemetery nearby. However, I don't know anything about anyone buried there. I am afraid of acquiring it from the wrong grave for the wrong purpose. It doesn't seem right going to just any grave. I know that I can get GD online. I purchase from AzureGreen for many of supplies. However, I am trying to start making my own ritual supplies, if I can.
I have seen other recipes that do not include GD. Is it safe to assume I can make the powder without GD?
you can purchase it, like you said, there are a bunch of outlets for that.
collecting your own dirt....basically you need to collect it from a grave of someone who died. so if youre doing that randomly, that can work against you.
if youre going to collect your own ...and its probably best that you do... try to find a person that lived or is somehow tied to the intention you have. So for hotfoot powder maybe the grave of a soldier who protected others?
Really look into it though, if you grab something random it could mess you up. Talk to the spirit and ask permission, try to wait for a response, some kind of sign. Talk to the dirt too, tell it what you need it to do with you (all your ingredients need to be talked to)
Anyways, good luck with the job, Hoe it works out for you
For whatever its worth, collecting your own stuff...typically...is better, the whole process is one of mindfulness and connecting with the spirits involved. lus the introspection and focus of doing the job.
