You must experience the loa ,to understand the loa. You will never understand the loa just by reading books ,and reading about them on the internet. I asked a young lady on one of my post if she had ever had someone call the loa for her. She did not reply. I can tell who has ever experienced the loa. Because they have a deeper understanding of the loa. Even from just a brief interaction. Last year I went to Haiti, and I went to a local Bokor to call Dantor for me. I wanted to hear her speak. Ezili Dantor does not speak in my house. I like to go different places and learn different things. Brave Gede told me I need to do this. So the Bokor sends Papa Loko to my house in Delaware to tell my Ezili Dantor to come to his peristyle in Haiti, and speak to me. So we waited for Dantor to reach. Oh my goodness. When Dantor reached, she was upset! So upset! "Dantor fache!, Dantor fache!" ,someone yelled. Dantor asked me what I was doing in Haiti. She said because I did not go to my altar before I left and announce to her I was going, that I had no protection from her on my trip. I learned from that, I don't make a move without telling Dantor and asking if it would be good for me. I don't take her protection for granted anymore. Here Dantor is looking for me at home and Papa Loko comes to tell her I am in Haiti. I am sure Dantor was like, "what the heck is she doing in Haiti? Okay, I am coming!" Lol! I laughed about it later. Dantor still protected me and carried me home safely.
