I damaged my lower back some years ago and strained my back in November 2008. While I was suffering pain when I walked and slept, my friend Kaori Matsui came to my home to give Johrei. I doubted whether it would improve with such a thing, but I received Johrei if it would ease my pain even if only a little.
While I was given it, there was no change but I had diarrhea that night. As I was anxious and asked Kaori, she taught me, "That is said a function of purification, and it's a good function to remove bad substances and impurities in your body, so there's no need to worry about it." After the purification, my back pain that had ever been painful almost went away miraculously and I felt relief very much. According to a doctor's diagnosis, it required more than a week for recovery but I have recovered in about four days. I was so amazed.
Just around the same time, my mother also suffered from an acute pain in her left shoulder with an unknown cause, and as she received Johrei from the teacher of a branch and Kaori's mother, her pain eased. Taking this opportunity, my mother and I determined to join Kyusei Shinkyo half in doubt.
After we received Mihikari-sama ('Mihikari-sama' is a kind of amulet with the character of "Hikari" written by Meishu-sama.) in February 2009, we began doing mutual Johrei every day. We held a memorial service for ancestors, and then mother's left shoulder pain eased very much. Thereafter, I have had almost no lower back pain and haven't used medicine, to which I resorted before, at all. I underwent purification of getting a high fever above thirty-nine degree C twice but recovered without taking any medicine but only with Johrei afterwards.
My grandfather was entering and leaving a hospital frequently for Parkinson's disease and pulmonary emphysema and had been under medical treatment for four years. After joining Kyusei Shinkyo, my mother and I visited the hospital to do Johrei to him every day.
During Johrei, changes occurred. The alarm of the cardiopulmonary and pulse machine which was connected to him suddenly rang, his pulse rate quickened, his closed eyes opened wide, and his right hand that had never moved started moving dynamically. We were so surprised at and deeply moved by the Johrei power.
My grandfather, who had been almost unconscious and had no response to a call, got better so that he could exchange words in response to our call. He was given a lot of "Mihikari," the Divine Light of Meishu-sama, by receiving Johrei from many people and departed for the spiritual world peacefully with a calm face without feeling the slightest pain afterward.
After that, I strongly hoped that my father and grandmother, who had been still unbelievers in my family, would be allowed to join Kyusei Shinkyo.
Around the end of July, I developed a stomachache with unknown cause, and the pain continued even after one week. At a hospital, I was just diagnosed with weariness from the summer heat. Nevertheless, my condition was getting worse and worse after that. As I asked the teacher of the branch, I was taught that your grandfather in the spiritual world was urging you, using your body, to let your father know wonderfulness of the faith in Meishu-sama as early as possible.
Come to think of it, while in the hospital, my grandfather underwent surgery on just the same part, where I had a stomachache, and was cut a hole in his stomach. My cough with an unknown cause that I had every day since he had passed away, also seemed to overlap with the symptoms of his asthma, and I was convinced of the teacher's teaching. I deeply reflected upon that I neglected mutual Johrei because my mother's work had been busy since last July.
My mother had talked to my father about God, but he had not made a clear answer yet. On that day I also spoke to him, but he still disagreed.
My stomachache and cough still lasted after that, and I sometimes became so painful that I could not sleep. When I sent an e-mail to Kaori in such a case, she came to my home even late at night. I could barely sleep by receiving Johrei from her.
One day, I visited the branch together with Kaori and was given Johrei from the teacher of the branch, and then an acute pain that I had never experienced, shot in my abdomen, so that I could scarcely breathe. My mother called my father at once, and he learned that I had been afflicted, and determined to join Kyusei Shinkyo. The moment he said, "I'm going to receive Mihikari-sama," I was able to breathe easily, and the stomachache that had been so terrible was also relieved. Those who were there and I were so surprised.
I have done mutual Johrei with my mother every day without fail and have almost never suffered from the stomachache and the cough ever since.
I am grateful from my heart to Meishu-sama for a number of miracles that I gained. Hereafter, I will practice Johrei for people who are close to me, and actively tell them the miracles that I have been given.
