Thoughts Needed!

I am really interested in what you all think of this, so please comment away!

Ok, so on New Years Eve, I was "attempting" to meditate.  I say attempt, because I'm not sure if what I do is actually meditating.  So I was lying on the floor in front of my altar, which I had just decorated for Yemaya, and did some deep breathing.  Since I am a daughter of the Goddess, I usually only work with Feminine energy (except Anubis, but that's another story).  I was figuring I would think about Yemaya or Oya, or Aphrodite, as she is my latest pocket doll from Dancing Goddess Dolls.  But the only thing that kept repeating in my head was "Damballah... Damballah... Damballah..."  It wouldn't stop.  This has sort of happened before; it's how I met Aine.  I am a firm believer that there are no coincidences in life and if someone's name repeats in your head over and over, then someone is trying to tell you something. 
I kind of thought I was predisposed to thinking of Damballah, as I had picked up a book and was kind of skimming thru it and ended up on a guided meditation to commune with  Him.  I've read that book several times and was always a little intimidated by Him, so I kinda always skipped over that part.  I've done a little more reading about him and I can't figure out why He would want to get my attention.  What do you all think?  Has this ever happened to any of you?  Got any ideas?  I'm thinking about making an offering for Him on my altar of flour and a white egg.  He seems so vast (for lack of a better word) what would he want of me?  And why does a little white girl from the sticks keep attracting African/Voudoo/Santerian deities?  Please let me know what you think!
