I had suffered from constipation since I was a schoolgirl. I occasionally had no bowel movement for two weeks, and medicine did not work. In addition, I was intensely shy of strangers. So I asked for entering Kyusei Shinkyo to improve such condition and weak point with turning to God for help in December 2007.
In my initiation ceremony, I was taught, "The medicine is harmful and bad for your health." Yet I could not bear constipation pain and the fear and I kept taking medicine after joining Kyusei Shinkyo. Eventually, even though I increased the dosage of a suppository, a laxative and tablets, they were not effective against the constipation, and it was getting worse and worse.
My mind was preoccupied with the distress, and I used abusive language and grumbled against the god and my family and was not wearing Mihikari-sama. One day Ms. Ihara in charge of a sub-branch visited me and gave Johrei to me after work. Then the next day, I smoothly had a bowel movement as if the suffering until last night were not true.
I thought I must never betray God and Ms. Ihara, who heartily looked after me, and I determined never to take the medicine again. Thanks to God, at present the constipation has been relieved only by Johrei.
In the next April, I did Johrei in earnest to my mother, who had been suffering from stiff shoulders, dizziness and nausea. With cooperation from the person who was looking after us, she was relieved about a month later. My mother was glad that after joining Kyusei Shinkyo, my personality became more cheerful than before and I tried to positively relate to those whose ways of thinking differed. Then she was allowed to join Kyusei Shinkyo in May of that year.
A half year later, to make a restart all family members together in the New Year, my mother and I began to do Johrei to my grandmother and uncle. When the teacher of the branch gave Johrei to my grandmother before, our ancestor came to address him, "The god you believe in is great, so please lead her." Such a thing happened, and she was also allowed to join the faith Kyusei Shinkyo in December.
To change the subject, this past April I got food poisoning by eating a box lunch that had been left in a car for half a day. I felt something wrong around my esophagus about three hours after lunch, and thirty minutes later, I felt sick to my stomach.
Then I left for Mr. Sawahira's house, and I was relieved a little as soon as I arrived there. I became better as I received Johrei before God for thirty minutes. However, as I got in my car to go home, I gradually felt unwell, and nausea and a headache grew worse when I arrived home.
I took a bath to go to bed early, but my hands and feet were numbed and cramped. My heart beat was fast, and I had difficulty in breathing so I got out of the bath in a hurry and lay down. My condition was getting worse and worse, and thus I asked Mr. Sawahira to give Johrei again and received remote one.
The next day, when I woke up with the stomachache, I had watery stools. I frequently went to the bathroom and vomited everything I had eaten. In spite of that, I had necessarily to go to Matsuzaka city on business on that day. As soon as I got on a train, I got a stomachache, felt sick by vibration and went back and forth to the rest room many times for about three hours until it arrived. Somehow, during the business, the symptoms disappeared. Then nausea and a stomachache began again after it ended. As I returned to Kumano, I went directly to Mr. Sawahira's house and received Johrei. Fortunately, my condition improved, and the symptoms went away.
The next day, I also had purification of fever. As I saw a doctor just in case, bacteria were found in my stomach, intestines and esophagus, and they were inflamed. So I was prescribed medicine. However, believing in Meishu-sama's teaching, I did not take any medicine. Mr. Sawahira and my mother prayed for me and gave Johrei to me every day. A week later, I got well and I realized the importance of Johrei.
I have an elder sister in Aichi Prefecture. I was praying for her suffering from her illness. Then one day, I had a wonderful experience that she dropped in on me and I could did Johrei to her.
I would like to try hard in order that her family will be connected with Meishu-sama as soon as possible.
