Ok. I've been practicing various forms of magic for a little over seven years now. A few months ago I had a weird manifestation episode and a voodoo (I know, it's not the right spelling) practitioner at a FANTASTIC little shop in Chicago told me I'm an open channel (open head is apparently the voodoo term).
Long story short, I've been talking with Papa Legba about once a week for the past month. I've got the veve and the altar all set up and everything. Here's the thing, though. I'm TERRIBLE at talking to spirits one on one. Papa Legba said (through my girlfriend the mega-channel) that my head is too full. I've gotten better, but she's gone for the next week. I've got no seer. I've asked a friend who practices, but he doesn't know the method for talking one on one with loa.
