At our altar, we both call forth our deity and feed the deity ( give offerings). You can tell by the signs, omens, and overall energy if the deity is truly living in your atmosphere. My buddhist friend, who chants before his altar, you can definitely feel the Buddha . There are some goddess deities that are so intense, they are not called forth inside the house or temple. They are contacted outside, usually underneath a tree. You will learn to recognize when the deity is in your circle. Of course, it is possible to be calling up more spirits than deity. This, too, has a definite feel to it.
