Poete. I appreciate you sharing what you know but not the disrespectful way you delivered it! My questioning is valid. I am the first to admit I’m wet behind the ears. I can be expected to get stuff wrong. That doesn’t mean you get to talk down to me. Remember, you were at one time, wet behind the ears and full of questions.
UndeadGod, awesome, thanks for the heads-up. I’ll go and check him out. As for setting up an altar, honouring my ancestors, I’m already onto that. It’ll be done once I’ve got the place straighter (not long moved in). I’ve been reading Jason Miller’s book, The Sorcerer’s Secrets which discusses the importance of making offerings etc.
Jakob, from little info I’ve been able to gather (mainly from the websites of houngans and mambos), no, anyone can get started and you don’t have to be initiated to honour your ancestors and the loa. But I think to get further knowledge, you need to be initiated or become a houngan or mambo.
But don’t quote me, if I’m wrong please correct me.
