FAQ 42

Question:

One of my close friends work as a psychic counselor. I met her about ten years ago, and I think it was not an accident. Did her Kenzokushin(眷属神), a kind of guardian deity, see to it that I met her?

  • psychic 霊能者
  • accident 偶然
  • see to it that S+V SがVするよう取りはからう

Answer:

Psychics, including me, have some deeper karma than ordinary people and their energy of thought is strong. You have to be careful in associating with psychics. As long as you get along well with a psychic, there is no problem, but once you disagree with the psychic or some trouble happens between you two, the psychic can cast a curse on you unintentionally. Since pay psychics, in particular, receive and are burdened with huge spiritual dirt from their clients possessed with and affected by evil spirits in return for money, to meet such a psychic just once could cause you to be infected with spiritual bad influence the psychic has or your good fortune might be absorbed by him/her. Some psychics use their acquaintances unconsciously as a spiritual sacrifice in place of themselves. So be careful.

FAQ 41

Question:

I visited the grave the other day. When I put my hands together, should I wear a Buddhist rosary? I don’t have it, so I think it’s time to buy one. If you have any advice on what kind of rosary I should buy, please let me know.

  • grave 墓
  • the other day 先日
  • rosary 数珠

Answer:

If you don’t hold enough memorial services with gratitude for your ancestors, your aura is thin. So it is not bad to wear a rosary when you visit the grave so as not to be possessed. To be extreme, any ring makes do. The one made from hemp would be much better. Just as a headband makes you concentrate, the ring on the wrist tightens your spiritual body, keeping you from being possessed by spirits. However, if you wear it everyday, the feeling of tense will soon dull and its effect will fade. Therefore you had better not wear it all the time.
