FAQ 11


The other day, I was told by a psychic that I was obsessed by Jinrei Tanuki(人霊タヌキ, a human spirit which takes on a form of a racoon dog). I heard the word for the first time. What is it?

When an ascetic or a psychic who made money by cheating others dies, they can’t go to heaven and their spiritual body can change into the one of a form of a mean racoon dog. One’s nature and character are projected on the spiritual body. An image for an animal in the consciousness of the human race changes the form of a spiritual body like that. It has nothing to do with the actual animal’s spirit of a raccoon dog.

A human spirit taking on a form of a racoon dog has religious knowledge and is cunning. Sometimes it obsesses someone and makes him into a psychic and manipulates him into cheating others and doing the wrong things. Many of the pay psychics are obsessed by such a thing. They are likely to get plump like a racoon dog as they get obsessed deeper and make more money.

The psychic who told you so was seeing himself spiritually. There are a lot of cases pay psychics are actually seeing the spiritual beings obsessing themselves. They cheat his clients out of their money, saying unscrupulous things and scaring them, but the truth is they are seeing themselves spiritually. You are to blame too to get in touch with such a pay psychic.
