you mean a S?ance? personally i've never done one with the whole hold hands and chant in the hopes someones possessed or a full apparition appears. cast a circle to protect everyone, wear a protective charm, and of course get sage smudge for after. spirits can sometimes linger around even if you ask them nicely to leave, so you should do a cleansing after working with spirits. i wait until the middle of the afternoon on November 1, mostly because that's when the rest of my coven is leaving and we say goodbye to all the spirits who came to visit on Samhain. after everyones left, i use sage in my whole house and wash the floors, doors, and windows with a lemon, rosemary and salt mixture. if you happen to have other spirits who live in your house, you should say a chant that says they can stay. i also think everyone in your family should do a purification bath just to be safe. hope the s?ance went well.
