Connecting with African Deities

When newcomers begin to embrace African spirituality they often desire to start with African deities from the door. They usually overlook important spirits like their ancestors and Ori at the beginning of their journey. Like other energies discussed in previous episodes, the Orishas, Lwas, Vodun, etc. are vital components of your spiritual team.

However, one should always approach these energies with caution and respect. These highly-regarded spirits are very powerful in many respects. As such, it is important to understand which energies you should connect with, and how, when, and why to connect with them. I discuss each of these elements in this episode. So join me as I explore the concept of connecting with African deities.
