In the death work community, most people emphasize gathering graveyard dirt and bones. Yes, these tools are significant: they connect us with the deceased when we're outside of a cemetery. But in my practice, I rarely collect graveyard dirt when I visit the dead's resting place. Instead, I practice other forms of devotion, spirit communication, and magic.
I don't recommend packing up grave dirt during your first trip to the cemetery for a couple of reasons:
On my tumblr, I've received a lot of questions about how to contact the dead in a cemetery without using a divination vessel. Like any method of spirit work, this connection with the deceased develops through practice. The best way that I can answer this question is to respond with what I, personally, do in graveyards. Every death witch practices differently. Hence, this post is just here to give you ideas about how to advance your death witchcraft.
When I enter a new cemetery, here's what I'll do.
While we're talking about cemetery trips, here are some etiquette/safety tips to keep in mind:
I hope this post inspires you to view cemetery visits as more than a way to gather tools. These visits allow us to communicate with the dead, advance our abilities, and build a reliable reputation with the spirits. I wish you best of luck in your path.

Hello, I would like to contact a specific spirit at their grave. They were just buried a few days ago. Dirt is still fresh on top of the burial site. What’s the best way to go about sitting there and contacting him? I haven’t felt his presence since he passed i’ve gone to the grave twice and i’m just dying to know that he hears me or for him to show me any sign that he knows i’m there. I had to fly across the country to be here that’s why it’s important for him to know i did come. We also had plans that i’d come home to see him i promised him. So that’s one of the many reasons i just need to know that he knows i am here. Let me know i have to fly home May 18th. it is the 12th. hopefully you see this in time. if not, the grave will always be there. just figured the sooner after the burial the better.

Hey Jacklyn! I hope I replied in time.

The way I see it is that not all people who pass become spirits. If they felt content that all is well within the family they don’t usually linger. Or may be with one of their family close by as they need the most help. Also what you got to remember also is, millions of people have died but not millions of ghosts. It’s only some who stick around for what ever reason

Hi I’m just wondering I have this cemetery nearby and I’m trying to find out if I can just keep going to the cemetery and communicate with a spirit that I don’t know in the over world will I still be able to let them open up and be friends with me?

I want to bury a sour jar at the graveyard with all the people that have been bullying my friend online. How do I go about that?

Hi Ree. I'm a little confused about your question. You said the bullies are buried there?

Hi Giulia, sorry for the late reply. If you want to commune with a spirit in a cemetery niche, you can gather the dirt around it or take a photo of it. Visuals can help you contact with spirits.

Oh don't worry you've been already too kind by answering me!

I'm looking to make contact at a cemetery that only has numbers for headstones and a list is said to be lost with the total 710 names and dates. Its sad place that I visit often despite the sad feeling I get when onsite. Just seems like alot of lost souls all at one place.

Hi, I went to a favorite cemetery today and came home feeling a very interesting energy around me. It took me a few hours to realize that I think I may have taken a spirit home with me. Whatever/whoever it was was talking to me a lot and I like their energy, they feel kind of witchy or magical somehow. I didn’t visit a grave but I walked through and walked in the woods that’s attached to it, and I’m pretty sure they were with me the whole time. but is it safe or a good idea for me to keep them around? What should I do about it? Thank you so much

Hi! You said that even if you don’t bring graveyard dirt home, you may perform magic for the spirit when you get home. If I want to perform magic for the spirit when I get home, how would I do that? Where would I do it? What materials would I need in order to do this? Thank you!
