Graveyard Dirt, Hoodoo Rootwork Tradition

Over the past year now I have been collecting “oddities” on a regular basis. One of my newest additions is “bought” graveyard dirt. Although I do not practice “spells” or “magick”, I think of it as a sign of protection considering the grave I chose. Read on for more information and history on the subject. Graveyard dirt is used in African American Hoodoo rootwork. The magical connection of the dirt is more significant than just being from a grave, what’s more important is the person who’s inside the grave. Dirt from the grave of someone you loved could be used in love magic, while dirt from the burial site of a very wicked person might be incorporated into malevolent workings or curses.

The History of the Ouija Board

Thai Spirit House

Spirit Worship is as old as mankind itself. In Thailand the phenomenon goes back to the ancient days when the Tai’s were beginning their slow migration from the Red River Delta in northern Vietnam to all parts of the Southeast Asian region. Spirit Worship, or Animism, was a religion by which the entire world lived at one time, and when Buddhism came to Southeast Asia, it developed side by side with the ancient spirit religion. Today, many of the old animistic beliefs are intertwined with Buddhism and some animistic practices still exist in Thailand. One of these which is practiced by every Thai is the Spirit House. The Spirit House can be seen at a prominent spot outside every business establishment in the country. They are built on the grounds of Buddhist temples, outside caves in the mountains, near fishing ponds in the valleys, and occasionally in the middle of an otherwise uninhabited forest. Most…
