FAQ: In regards to the graveyard dirt spells. I purchased the dirt from over the heart of my grandmother's grave who loved me dearly when she was with us. A couple of things, I purchased the dirt during the day using a regular dime. Will the spell still work or did I waste my time? Also, the spell I'm working calls for vandal root which is also called valarian root. but could not find the actual root but have the powder from capsules, will this work or I need the actuall vandal root?

Where I live, cemeteries are gated and locked up every night at 6PM (sunset) and open again at 7AM (sunrise) (yes our days are shorter up here in the North). what that means is, there is no such thing as getting graveyard dirt after dark because it is illegal.

Secondly, it is also illegal to leave things in cemeteries (including coins, tea lights, flowers, etc). However it is not illegal to leave small food items (as bugs, slugs, birds, and squirrels will eat them within a few hours).

So in my area, we have to work around the law.

I often use dirt from my grandparents graves, and leave a favorite food. For example, Grammy Eva loved tomatoes, she used to buy huge bags of them, and eat them raw like apples. So when getting dirt from her grave I always leave her a big ripe tomato. Also, my grandmother had a deep dislike for wealth and money and actually would be offended if someone left coins on her grave. So don't think of it in terms of "buying" dirt from them. Instead think of it as leaving an offering of something they enjoy as a thank you gift for letting you gather the dirt.

 And as Hoodoo is all about using what you have (if you live in Maine you use ONLY local plants grown in Maine, you DO NOT mail order plants native to Georgia!) substitution is the RULE not the exception. What this means is, ask yourself WHY you are having a hard time finding vandal root? Answer: because it's not locally grown! When you are doing herbal medicine you need the exact item, but in Hoodoo it's not about the physical makeup of the herb, it's about the type of energy it gives off. For example Vandal Root is used to for protection and warding off evil, so it can be substituted for any other herb that does the same thing; these include: Aloes Wood, Barberry, Boldo, Broom, Butterfly Bush, Devil's Pod, Knot Weed, or Salt.

Hope that helps.

Ever wonder what it was like to live with Autism?  
--------------------
I have Autism. For more of my life I rarely spoke and was considered "too crazy" to ever live a normal life. I communicated via writing instead of vocally. I did not attend school. Psychologists said I would never drive a car, never get a job, never go to college, never function as a meaningful member of society, never be able to take care of myself or live on my own. They said there was no hope for me, I would need full-time care my whole life. 
--------------------
My progression was long and slow and very hard. Things other people found easy to do (getting dressed, brushing teeth/hair, walking across the street, etc,) I found extremely confusing and hard to learn. I was prone to wandering off and getting lost (I still am). Driver's ed takes most people a few weeks to learn - it took me 5 years. 
--------------------
I determined to prove the doctors wrong, but it was far harder to do, than most people would imagine. I got my first job working at Macy's at age 30 (a very difficult job as I had to deal one on one with customers and I still at that point was not talking in a manner that could be understood by others). I got my GED at age 34. I got my driver's license at age 35. I started college at age 36. By age 37 I had become a Phi Theta Kappa Honor Student and I was finally able to speak to others in full spoken verbal conversation for the first time in my life.
