I had suffered from an autoimmune disease called "pemphigoid," accompanied by blisters and an intense itch, since around 2003 because of constitutional predisposition and stress.
I kept taking medicine prescribed by a doctor, and yet repeatedly relapsed when I reduced the dosage even if the symptom was relieved once. I was so worried how long my condition like this would last or whether I would really get well, and thus tried diverse remedies as I was recommended. However, it was getting worse and worse and was quite painful.
Around September 2008, I met Ms. Abe through the introduction of my friend and received Johrei for the first time. Hoping it would cure my disease soon, I joined the faith, Kyusei Shinkyo, with my husband in October of that year.
My purification was severe because I had taken strong medicine for more than five years. Every time I received Johrei, I ran a fever and also got blisters all over my body. Even my ankles swelled up, and I often cried beyond the limit of my endurance with the extreme severity. Ms. Abe encouraged me each time, "It is purification! You'll definitely get better!"
Then, since about five months after joining Kyusei Shinkyo, a slight fever that I had constantly had come down, and the swelling in my feet also had been subsiding little by little. I also became able to go and worship.
To convey my joy, first of all, I led Ms. Hasegawa, who was my student of the dance, to a branch. She got a blood clot (thrombus) in her eye and had difficulty in seeing down, but as she received Johrei from the teacher of the branch, he/she seemed to feel much relieved.
Besides, Ms. Terashima in the neighborhood had had a pain in her knee and had not been able even to ride a bicycle from the beginning of September. She had suffered from colon cancer complicated with liver one before, and so I was worried about her very much. After telling my own experience and did Johrei to her, I led her to the branch. Her way of walking has been much better since she received Johrei, and she is glad of it.
Ms. Niwa to whom I recently did Johrei, was worried that she was tending to anemia and that her eyesight weakened after cataract surgery. When she received Johrei for the first time, she said, "I feel hot all over my body, especially the liver region." She strongly felt the Divine Light of Johrei from the teacher of the branch and did her back extraordinarily heated.
Also, I was concerned for long time about Ms. Murakami, who was pressed with care of her husband required care level 3. Although she had stiff shoulders and neck badly, after receiving Johrei she was glad that she felt refreshed with her head, and went home.
Accumulating Johrei experiences like these, it has been a year since I joined the Kyusei Shinkyo faith. I was cured of my disease considerably, and I also have been motivated and got well. I am deeply grateful that this is by the grace of Meishu-sama. I will continue to tell my own experiences and to convey the wonderfulness of Meishu-sama to many people.
