According to voodoo lore, a spiritual marriage offers something for everyone. The spirit gains entry to the human world, where in dreams or visions it makes its proposal of marriage to the person. If the proposal is accepted, the spirit is honored and celebrated, in exchange for which its earthly spouse is promised divine protection from life's misfortunes. Sally asks Papa Legba for permission to speak with those that come across her path.
