What's the proper way to start the conversation with a spirt?

What’s the protocol for speaking to a spirit? Can anyone help me with how to properly communicate with a spirit?

It is like a casual conversation with a friend?
Or is it more like a superior?
And if you are talking about someone (love interest) do you have to show picture ofbthat person or just by the mention of their name is enough?

Just mentioning the name is enough.

It’s a bit of both. Think of it like you are a king talking to another king. You are the one in charge, as they have come to your kingdom at your call, but you are still respectful of their own power and authority.
