When I was delivered of my first daughter, I nearly had a miscarriage two times but could give birth to her safely. However, she was prematurely born in the ninth month of pregnancy and suffered from terrible jaundice. I was told that her brain might be damaged, and so I was worried every day. I continued daily Johrei and prayers, and she was able to leave the hospital in about one month by the grace of God. Afterward, she grew up in good health and attained womanhood.
On the day following my second daughter's birthday, I was informed that she might have a hole in her heart, and I was plunged into despair. And then we saw a doctor at a university hospital, there was no hole but heart murmur was heard. So she had to undergo periodic checkups.
Her four-month check-up was the day when the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake occurred on January 17, 1995. At 5:46:52, my husband was usually to drive a truck and be passing the bridge which half collapsed from the earthquake at that time. However, he was taking a holiday for her medical examination on that day. Meishu-sama protected him. Besides, I found that the person who had driven in place of my husband was all right, and my heart was full of gratitude.
Moreover, even though she had been said that check-ups for heart would be necessary
until she entered elementary school, we were told at the medical examination
on the day that she would not need to undergo the check-ups anymore. We were
doubly delighted at it.
When the second daughter was eight months old, my breast was fully swollen, and I ran a high fever of almost forty. I went to a hospital, and I was diagnosed with 'mastitis' and my breast would have to be cut. The doctor told me that I need to see the doctor for injections for two or three days, and I went home on that day.
The next day, I did not go to the hospital where I was told I would have an operation, because my baby ran a fever, and I took her to the hospital where I gave birth to her. I consulted the doctor there that I was diagnosed with mastitis by a pediatrician. Then, he/she examined my breast and said, "With this condition, you will be cured if you give your baby the breast." When I put her to the breast as I was told, her and my fever went down, and the pain in my breast also disappeared. It was very wonderful indeed.
When the second daughter entered a kindergarten, I decided to work part-time only for a half day. About two months since I started working, I contracted Basedow's disease. A doctor said, "This disease never cures completely and you have to live with it for your life," and I was so depressed.
I was told that I would have to change medication with age and the condition because it was influenced by hormone balance. At first, I suffered from a badly swollen throat, a throbbing heart and high blood pressure. It is said that some doctors would cut it at once, yet I could avoid it and received treatment with medicine only.
At the hospital which I went to every other week, my progress of medical examinations
was satisfactory and my condition eased by receiving Johrei. Actually, I took
medicine only at the beginning, but after that I only received Johrei without
taking medicine. The doctor seemed to have thought that there was no abnormality
because the medicine worked.
When my attending doctor changed, I told him the truth that actually, I had not taken the medicine for months anymore, and he said to me, "Well, you're OK now. If your condition gets worse, please come and see me." However, I have not gone to hospital since the day and have been living in good health now.
Besides, I gained a lot of protection such as that I was stopped just before
running over a child on a bicycle in the blind spot when I put my car into a
garage, that my younger brother completely recovered from nephrosis and was
only slightly injured in a serious accident of head-on collision, that my husband
was protected from a localized torrential downpour in Fukuoka, Kyushu.
I express my deep gratitude to Meishu-sama and would like to convey my emotion to many people also into the future.
