Graveyard work has its place in Hoodoo. Some rootworkers work with the spirits of the departed. Not all rootworkers will do this type of work and with good reason. This type of work can be dangerous, not only to the worker but also to innocent people. This type of work should only be done by experience rootworkers. A new rootworker should not try to do this type of work. I'm not trying to scare anyone, I'm just speaking from experience.

I know it has been said that you can work with any dead, well yes you can but let me tell you this is not safe. If the person you want to work with is unknown to you then you could be headed for trouble. You don't know anything about this person, just because this person was a soldier, a mother, or a father doesn't mean they will do what you command them to do. They can turn on you and take over the work. Again I am speaking from experience.

The best advice I can give you is if you choose to do graveyard work then please work with people who knew and loved you in this life. Just because someone has passed on doesn't mean they have changed, if they were nasty in life then they will be more so in death. Petitioning the dead to come to your aid is a very powerful work; but in the hands of a novice it can be very, very dangerous. Again I am speaking from experience.

Please don't just go willy nilly and jump into something you know nothing about because you read how to do the work somewhere. I don't care who wrote the information; not even myself. If you don't have experience in this type of work then don't try it! If you want to do graveyard work then find an experience worker who can give you HANDS ON TRAINING.

If you don't ever listen to anything else I say please listen to this. My view as a teacher has changed on this type of work. Instructions on this type of work should not be taught by me or anyone else unless it is hands on training. People who know me and know my website know that I don't write about something this serous without a reason and they are right. In October of 2009 I was contacted by a client of another worker. This client wanted me to bury something in the graveyard for them. The minute I heard this my spirits said to get that package. To find out what happened next click on the link below.
