When I was 25 years old, I came to Japan with my former husband, who I met in the Philippines. After 6 years of marriage, my sight was suddenly beginning to fail and so I had my eyes examined by an eye doctor. Following the doctor's instructions, I was gradually losing my sight and became blind in a month. The doctor made a wrong diagnosis. A brain surgeon of the municipal hospital diagnosed, "Brain tumor had wound around an optic nerve. If you had come here and had the tumor removed one week earlier, you would have been able to see. But it was too late for it. And if you left tumor as it was, there would be no guarantee of life. So you must have an operation." Then I underwent major surgery.
I was still 31 years old then. I had had good sight, but suddenly lost my sight, so that my life changed very much.
Furthermore, my sickly husband passed away in 2010. I owed him my life and he taught me various things. When I was thinking about how I would carry on living in Japan from now on, I met the teacher of the branch. She told me that my eyes would get better and gave me Johrei. Then I felt very good. So I received Johrei from her for several days.
But my present husband, who disliked religion, declined, saying that he didn't want the teacher to visit us anymore. Still the teacher came to my place to listen to me many times, and we went out together and gradually became friends. Every time I received Johrei, I felt light on the part, which I had a tumor. Everyone said to me, "The look in your eyes was gradually changing," and I became happy.
When I met the teacher of the church, I decided to have my Mihikarisama and was allowed to join Kyusei Shinkyo. Now I do not take medicine at all and do not go to the hospital as often as before.
In 2013 I heard about my father's condition from my younger sister on the phone. His limbs were swollen and even going out was bothersome for him. And he couldn't work and lost his spirit. So she worried about him. When I told the branch teacher about my father's condition, she said, "Let's go to the Philippines together." Then I returned home with her in May. I hadn't seen my father for a long time, and it was all he could do to lie down and get up. I did Johrei to him every day and he got well as he could go shopping together. We went shopping together to buy papaya because he wanted the branch teacher to eat it before leaving the Philippines. During our stay, I was allowed to do Johrei to more than ten people with the teacher of the branch each day at the places, where we went around the neighbors to say hello.
My cousin, Laya's headache was relieved when she received Johrei. So she decided to have Mihikarisama, and we agreed on her joining Kyusei Shinkyo and coming back to the Philippines in July.
Two months later, we went back again to the Philippines with the teacher of the church to hold Laya's initiation ceremony. I suddenly felt a severe pain in my head on the plane like a lightning bolt flashing. My forehead gradually began to bulge. I could not open my eyes with a sore around the eyes and skull seemed to split. The pain has moved from left to right. I clenched her hand of the branch teacher. I was screaming the name of Meishu-sama, breaking into a cold sweat. The teacher of the church also gave Johrei to me and encouraged me by saying, "You'll be all right." Strangely the pain stopped abruptly the moment the plane landed at the airport in the Philippines and I stayed well without having a headache there. Moreover, I gradually came to feel dazzlingly sunlight shining to eyes from then and my sight is becoming brighter. I thank Meishu-sama.
My family and people in the neighborhood were guided to the teacher of the church and received Johrei. Most of them felt the Divine Light and said that I felt better and it is wonderful Light. Four people have joined the faith. My father, who couldn't move around, became healthy having a meal and taking a shower by himself every time he received Johrei. Carmen, who became a believer, was surprised to know bad part of recipient's when she does Johrei to people. Lerma, who has skin disease, feels well the Light on the part, where she was receiving Johrei and she is glad that she is mitigated and gets better.
I am going to tell the wonderful Johrei to people not only in the Philippines but also in the world, wishing Johrei spread all over the world.
Philippines but also in the world, wishing Johrei spread all over the world.
