I was allowed to join Kyusei Shinkyo faith through a grandmother of my granddaughter's friend. That was when I was taken to the sacred ground (the headquarters of Kyusei Shinkyo) for the monthly festival. When I was receiving group Johrei from Kancho teacher (the chief administrator). I was like getting carsick with a feeling of dizziness, and I thought that I fell down here.
A few days later, I was not well and was in bed for several days. I was not able to have much meal, so my family told me to go to the hospital, but I didn't feel like going there for some strange reason. I had a fever of thirty-nine degrees, but I thought it would be all right if took a little rest.
Meanwhile I came down with watery diarrhea and so went to the bathroom many times. Although I was worried, the fever went down the next morning, and I became/felt refreshed that all bad things in my body were out.
I went to the hospital just in case, but I was told, "There is nothing wrong with you at all." I thought this was purification. Thanks to Meishu-sama, I stopped taking medicine for high blood pressure, which I had taken for forty-five years, and I am grateful to Meishu-sama.
My granddaughter began to refuse to go to school when she was in the eighth grade. I drove her to school in the morning, but there was day after day when she went just to submit papers without going into the classroom. I began to go to the church with her on our way home and to render services for about half an hour after worshiping so that things would somehow change for the better. In the meantime, she was always waiting for me in the car.
One day, she said, "I work with you," and we were able to serve together. However, the next day she was waiting in the car again. The teacher of the branch taught me, "If your granddaughter is reluctant to get inside, how about weeding outside with her? She will receive the Divine Light and her 'spiritual clouds' will be eliminated little by little."
The next day I could not serve inside because of the church's circumstances. As she told me that she worked with me, we did the weeding outside together. On our way home, she suddenly said, "I'm going to school this afternoon." Though I was surprised, I took her to school with pleasure.
Then she gradually began to go to school. Her teachers were kind to her, and she was able to return to school. Thanks to God, she is now attending a high school.
The granddaughter suffered from hay fever, but had no symptoms last spring by the grace of Johrei. However, when summer was approaching, she had a hard thing beside her navel and said, "It hurts when a skirt belt touches it." As I touched it lightly, no abnormalities were seen on the surface, but there was a hard lump of the size of the little finger tip.
It was diagnosed as "folliculitis" at the hospital, and medicine was prescribed. It was not malignant, so at least I could feel relieved. After a meal, the medicine placed on the table seemed not to be opened at all. I realized that the granddaughter herself knew "harmful effects of medicine" better than I do.
Without taking any medicine, the folliculities did not fester and she was fully recovered by receiving Johrei every day.
Moreover, the last summer was terribly hot, so it was really hard for my 88-year-old mother. Only just moving a little, she immediately sat down on a chair and seemed to have difficulty in breathing. She lost her appetite. She also had to go to the bathroom frequently, so sometimes couldn't make it to the toilet, and she wet her pants. I felt sorry for her. She had to make frequent journeys to the toilet while sleeping, so that she was not able to sleep well.
She lay in her room, and seemed not to feel like doing anything at first, but while I was doing Johrei to her, she started waiting for Johrei. She has gone to the bathroom less often and been able to sleep well when I kept doing Johrei to her every day. Her spirits picked up, and she got better that she could cook boiled food.
Mother was strict with herself and others, but recently began to often say, "thank you." She putting her hands together and receiving Johrei is very pretty, and looking at her, I am relieved.Wishing for the happiness of people, I will make an effort for doing Johrei to many people.
