Now, onto business. Before you can make a connection-
Ah, excuse me. By "connection", I mean it in a form of calling out to said deity like praying, channeling, working with, or any other method of contact such as contact through tarot cards or pendulums. I thought I should make that clear.
Now before you do such things, it is very very very very important that you research this deity. You research it's role in lore, what it is the deity of, it's attributes, what animals/flowers/trinkets or any other thing it is associated with. It is also helpful to see if you can find any firsthand accounts that others have experienced with said deity. If there are none, well...you're in for a surprise, I'd say!
Once you have done your proper research and you feel that you are ready, then you would start calling out to the deity.
First things first:
Always show respect
Don't force them to talk, don't force them to respond, don't force their presence.
Let it happen naturally. It takes some time.
And always be kind. Be happy to be speaking to them.
