I was diagnosed as an ovarian crystoma and took a leave of absence from work
to be hospitalized on December 20th, 2007.
Normally, if a tumor is about 5 cm in diameter, it needs to be removed surgically.
Mine turned out to be about 12 cm in diameter and so swollen that it was pressing
other organs. My doctor said, "There is no other way but take your ovary out."
I often fainted with anemia and suffered from excruciating pains during my period.
I found out that bleeding in my ovary was the cause of these symptoms.
I thought of accepting the surgery once, but I was still single and wanted to
have children in the future. I tried to be cheerful in front of people, but
I felt very discouraged inside and used to cry when I was alone.
Then, I received a phone call from my senior associate Mrs, Yokota. I hadn't
mentioned anything about my disease and surgery to her, so she was very concerned
about my leave of absence. She said to me, "I have something I'd really like
to tell you." The Next day, I visited her house.
She began explaining about the power of Jorei. When she said, "Daily Jorei healed
a person with an end-stage cancer", I felt that a miracle could happen to me
too. Before she finished telling me the whole story, I said " I wanted to receive
a Mihikari-sama to practice Jorei".
I received a Mihikari-sama and did Jorei to myself everyday. I could feel some
sensation in my hands and enjoy doing Jorei.
When I was hospitalized on the 20th of December, Mrs. Yokota came to see me
and did Jorei. While she was doing Jorei, her hand didn't move from the place
where I had the tumor, so I told her, "How do you know? That's where my left
ovary is". Her reply was, "I could feel very strong sensation in here." I was
very surprised to hear that.
Mrs. Yokota did Jorei for me on the day of the surgery. Although it was my first
surgery, I could face it with very calm and relaxed state of mind.
The next day of the successful surgery, my doctor explained to me an outcome
of the surgery, and I was stunned by it. He said, "We could save your ovary.
Both of your ovaries are functioning fine, so please relax." It was indeed a
miracle. Every time I had consulted him prior to the surgery, his response had
been "Remove the ovary." I was very impressed by the miracle and truly felt
how wonderful Jorei was.
My progress after the operation was fine, so that I could leave the hospital
four days earlier than expected. I am now problem free and leading a very healthy
Since I received my Mihikari-sama, Mrs. Yokota and I have been contacting each
other almost every day to exchange the miracles and blessings we have received.
I have never imagined my life filled with such delightful and happy days. I
feel so happy to be able to share the graciousness of Johrei among my friends,
and I will pursue my faith more than ever.
