Its curious how despite Im from Brazil, I cant give much of a care about adr spirits. I’ve attended to a Umbanda house for years when I just started in the occult, but even though I found it a nice experience, I couldnt find the answers and energies that would satisfy me. Now, I just started attending as a psychography medium in the same house, even though still not agreeing with their philosophy and even finding their energy very lacking somehow. The fact is that I go there coz I like the people and the spirits that drop by there. They are a spiritualist Umbanda house, which means they are focused on spiritual affairs through a right-hand path approach. The spirits there doesnt ask for alchohol nor tabacco, and they dont dress up accordingly to their status and class. Id say its a clean house, but very lacking on how to handle mundane affairs, as their philosophy is more about giving the other cheek than destroying your enemies.
In comparisson to them, the other spirits I find in more traditional houses seem nasty many of them even trying to regain their experiences as incaenated spirits through yheir mediums. Of course, there are evolved spirits that wont scam you for their personal deeds, but my advice is to keep your eyes open when dealing with these spirits, specially if they start claiming the task is way too hard to accomplish or if they start demanding too much from you. They’re deceased spirits that are trying to identify themselves with the african archetypes, but still remain their human nature, so try to attract those of a more evolved nature.
