So I’ve been wanting to do some spirit work for a while now. I don’t know very much about my identity at all and, I’ve been wanting to contact my grandmother who died when I was about 11 in order to try and form a relationship and learn things from her. I’m very sure we would have gotten along very well, but in her life she always lived in another country to me so we never got to have a relationship.
With spirit work they always recommend offerings of their favourite food, drink or an object of theirs – but I don’t have anything or know anything. What should I do? Would this attempt even work?

Water is always good, as everybody gets thirsty. A small assortment of foods, tiny portions, that were popular in the time period you are reaching out to. And for an object, their name on a piece of paper, and/or a picture, is plenty if you have those. BB.
