A Guide To: Graveyard Snow
I had a thought the other day speculating the concept of graveyard snow, and after thinking about it for a few days, I’ve finally come up with a proper post on it !
What is graveyard snow?
Graveyard snow is, well, snow that’s gathered from a graveyard.
What makes graveyard snow different from graveyard dirt?
While graveyard dirt holds the essence of the dead, graveyard snow also holds the properties of snow water.
Graveyard dirt is used for cursing, luck, and protection. Snow is used for transformative magic, cleansing, purification, and protection.
So essentially, graveyard snow is a mix of that.
So what’s more powerful?
Here’s is a list from least to greatest gaging the power of graveyard dirt and graveyard snow.
- Graveyard snow (gathered from the ground or from nearby stones/trees).
- Graveyard dirt (not gathered from a gravesite).
- Graveyard snow (gathered from a headstone or gravesite); is just a bit more powerful than regular graveyard dirt.
- Graveyard dirt (gathered from a gravesite).
The reason that dirt is generally more powerful than snow is because dirt has been sitting there longer. It has gathered up more of the energy and essence of the dead than graveyard snow.
Think of it like this, if you pour water into snow, it melts away and doesn’t hold that well, but if you pour water into dirt it holds the water a lot better. The same can be applied with energy!
How to gather graveyard snow:
Graveyard snow can be gathered from the ground, or from nearby trees and rocks. Snow that has been sitting longer will hold more power, so try to gather older snow if possible.
If gathering graveyard snow from headstones or gravesites, you should provide an offering to the spirit like flowers, coins, etc. Please be considerate and respectful to the spirits there!
