There are two types of illness in human. Any type of illness that could not be explained, diagnosed, treated or cured medically, it is called spiritual illness. The foreign spirits that occupy the body of a living person are usually deceased relatives or close friends, aborted or miscarried child. People who had conflicts with the person in the past, or foreign spirits in the house. If foreign spirits have been occupying a person’s body for an extended period of time, this person would experience physical illness, bad temper, misfortune, and facing difficulties in career or studies.
In the Age of Dharma Decline, with the recitation of Little Houses, we are able to eliminate our karmic obstacles due to negative karma, and transfer merits to foreign spirits and help them to proceed to a better place.
