Familiar spirits on the other hand are clearly off the table - very off limits. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22698415
'Familiars' generally refer to LIVE animal companions. After they pass on, some believe the spirit remains.
Ever know your pets needs? Without them being able to tell you? That is the connection between you and your pet.
Some would refer to that as a 'psychic' connection. But again that is just another label.
Tell me, have you ever been visited by a deceased pet in dreams or otherwise?
Once one is able to see through the programing jargon to what the TRUE meaning behind the 'labels' are, they come much more prepared for what really exists behind the veil.
Tell me, what is worse...believing in the existence of a deceased pet spiritual remains. Or burning people alive for that belief?
Fear of the mystical causes Man to act irrationally.
