What do you mean by direct?
Personal...as in not through the medium of a book or some other indirect source...a mystical experience might be a good way to put it.
I have had mystical experiences with the Voodoo loa. I know many Voodooists become fully possessed by a particular loa (god/spirit). The loa I work with does not fully possess me, but I can feel him in the back of my mind and hear him whispering to me. (No, I do not mean auditory hallucinations or any other symptoms of psychosis. It is a matter of spirituality, not mental health) I can also feel his presence, like the chill in the air during a thunderstorm just before a lightning strike. Although many fear him, equating the Lord of the Crossroads with the Devil, I find him benevolent and supportive .
