Hi, everyone! First time poster and fairly new to the community.
Name's Jessica - I am 26 and live in Orlando, Florida.. and I have some questions for ya'll. I have scoured the internet up and down to try and find the answers ( as well as looking for a more particular LJ community ) but I still come up diddly-squat; If anything, instead of answering my questions, more were created.

My apologies as this is really more Santeria related then Voudou - but as I said I strained to find another community able to help me.
For at least a year now I have been feeling the pull of Yemaya. I keep getting the impression that she wants to communicate with me and has teachings for me. My problem and concern is this: I want to follow my gut instinct and work with her. Problem is that I dont have the finances to even begin becoming an initiate of Santeria. I come from a Wiccan background so the concept of working with a female Deity is not unfamiliar. I simply do not know the proper way to approach this. I do not want to let this call go ignored but I feel as though my hands are tied. Is it appropriate to still set up an altar and speak with her as she seems to be trying to speak with me? Would she even listen to a non-initiate?

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I am feeling so conflicted.

I can answer a few questions in private email if you'd like to drop me a note.

Absolutely... set up an Altar and communicate with her. Fuck human standards and prerequisites for working with Loa, or Orisha, or spirits, angels, deities, etc.... allow Yemaya to instruct and direct you.

My opinion of course

Do you work with the Loa or Orishas? How does this approach work for you?
Thanks very much for your opinion! :) I can use all the help that I can get.
