In March 2002, Mr. /Ms. Hioki visited me and gave me Johrei. I was led to a branch and felt something bright which was emitted from the teacher of the branch. The teacher said, "If you practice Johrei, you will improve in health and it will bring you good luck. So if you don't do it, you'll make a loss." I asked for joining Kyusei Shinkyo with a light heart to have a try at it for the time being.
My 85-year-old father-in-law got well by joining a faith. As turning my eyes to those around me, I realized that there were many who had trouble and anxiety, such as a rheumatic friend, a diabetic friend, and a mother whose child is a truant. And I did Johrei to them one after another. When miracles happened and moved me greatly, the miracle which happened to a former high school classmate was especially impressive.
She suffered from toxemia of pregnancy and gave birth prematurely to a baby girl. Her daughter had an epileptic seizure at the age of two and was a little developmentally disabled. She herself also had an epileptic seizure in high school. When she took medicine, she often felt so sleepy that she could not study. Now she is not taking medicine, and she does not want to have her little daughter take medicine.
In August her daughter's fit was the severest so far, and my friend contacted me in a panicked voice. When I rushed to her place, her daughter was being stiffened up. As I prayed fervently to Meishu-sama and did Johrei to her, her fit subsided as if her stiffened body came loose little by little. I was touched by that I was blessed with the capacity to cure an illness by simply holding my hand up to the girl. I was convinced of Johrei's wonderfulness again.
The teacher of the branch advised me, "I understand epilepsy is a disease related to ancestors, so tell her it's better to relate with Meishu-sama and hold a memorial service for the repose of her ancestors." She, who had had a strong prejudice against religion, finally accepted it, saying "I hate being scared like that." She and her daughter were admitted to become a believer together, held a memorial service for their ancestors and began to do Johrei healing. After that, the bad fit was gone suddenly. I learned the preciousness of joining Kyusei Shinkyo and the importance of a memorial service for ancestors.
Also, a man, who was allowed to join Kyusei Shinkyo in December last year, has lived alone up to the present of thirty-six years old since he lost his mother to an unnatural death at the age of two and his father to myocardial infarction at age of twenty.
He told me that he had felt weak at the knee when I had led him to a church for the first time. When passing in front of the church, he had felt some kind of spirits. Then, Johrei from the teacher of the branch was painful and hot for his body and fearful. He said, "I'm very flattered, and I want to go to the church, but for some reason I'm afraid to go inside."
On the morning of an initiation ceremony, I went together with him to the church, but he was frightened like a child, "I'm scared to go in." After all, he was not allowed to join Kyusei Shinkyo in the month, yet I told him the importance of relating with Meishu-sama and receiving the Divine Light. As the result of his effort, he was allowed to become a believer the next month. When he received a Mihikari-sama, I was so moved and experienced that his spiritual clouds were dispelled by continuing to do Johrei.
And during the second week of the connection with Meishu-sama, he encountered a kindhearted woman, and their happy relationship started. I have to offer thanks to Meishu-sama for the blessing given early like this.
Moreover, I also received blessing for myself. On the morning of a monthly service in the branch, I felt dizzy on standing up and became sick. A ceiling began to spin even if I lay down. I was afraid of what would happen.
As I immediately made contact with a person who was looking after, I was cheered up, "For Meniere's disease, do Johrei to the right temple and kidneys thoroughly. Hang in there!" Considering, "Why did I become Meniere's disease?" I fretted a little about that I could not do anything.
Still, I recalled that I had been taught by the teacher of the church, "Human beings are spiritual beings with the body, so you have to value notions and words." So I changed my mind to that I would be surely all right, and continued Johrei praying to Meishu-sama.
After a while, I felt better and could somehow move myself by the grace of teachers' prayers. I prayed to visit the branch without any trouble and drove holding a plastic bag and bending forward. I arrived safely at the branch. As Johrei from the teacher of the church began, I felt something like a central core come off my head and got better. Thanks so much.
I appreciate a lot of protection and blessing received, and I am going to practice Johrei to transmit the Divine Light of Meishu-sama to as many people as possible.
