Do the Northern gods/goddesses talk to mortals?

Do the Northern gods/goddesses talk to mortals?
If you were to ask me this question 20 years or so ago, I would have answered with an emphatic yes! But my training along both academic and the magical disciplinary arena have led me to the conclusion that not everyone is ready to accept the existence of life outside their own physical realities. Pity that! Most folk I have met or personal broke bread with in Asatru, with very few exceptions are not privy to what we call walking the worlds. Those who can rarely share their own unique experiences with deities online. The Tivar/Regin choose in my opinion those who they wish to communicate to in their own time and their very own special way. Many through dreams but not especially so. Experiential encounters are not proof of their existence nor the subject of debate. It remains a matter of personal faith and should never be used as either evidence for debate regarding the nature of the Northern gods or goddesses or to promote a personal agenda minus the burden of proof. No two human beings on this planet experience in the same way, nada not a single man or women. So validity and reliability go straight out the door. Back to the question. Based on the past 30 years of working alongside the gods, goddesses, in my very personal view the Regin not only communicate to their folk but they also walk the earth. Both gods and goddesses as do their counterparts. What is more, they do not care for the colour of your skin or your mixed bloodlines! Note carefully also that as far as I am aware, not a single human being in the West today can prove genetically racial purity. Not one!
