I was allowed to join the faith in August two and half years ago. At that time,
I got tired easily from even a little work and had been in bed for a few months
once I got sick. I was fine when I was young. However, I started to be in bad
shape after I moved from Tochigi to Mie 23 years ago at the critical age of
32 years old. I was not able to walk straight and was unsteady on my feet because
of dizziness and a shortness of breath. Although I had medical examinations
at several hospitals, the cause was still unknown and doctors said, "There is
nothing wrong with you at all." Since then, I tried whatever I thought good,
such as acupuncture and moxibustion, massage, chiropractic treatment, oriental
medicine, breathing techniques and a nature cure, but some had no effect at
all. Even effective ones worked for only a few days and I had a relapse.
When I was 49, seventeen years after the onset, a dentist in Kobe diagnosed
my illness as mercury poisoning. Half of silver amalgams for fillings is an
alloy of mercury. Mercury has been used for a filling on the assumption that
it does not melt, but in actual fact it melts out. Especially when mercury is
exposed to electromagnetic waves, it seems that mercury melts out in large quantities
because metal receives waves as an antenna.
After removing all amalgams in teeth, acute pain turned into dull pain and I
felt as if a storm raged in my mind calmed down suddenly and I was in a warm,
sunny spot of spring. However, I still have a dull pain, and symptoms such as
dizziness, shortness of breath, getting tired easily and being laid up in bed
The dentist said, "mercury melted from your teeth has been accumulated and is
still in your body. It is important to remove it from now on," and the treatment
ended. Although I tried various other treatments, my physical condition didn't
While I was in trouble, Ms. Hioki, who had been a stranger, visited me to preach
the teachings of Kyusei Shinkyo. What she told me was the same as what I heard
from the person introduced at my friend's house about ten years ago. At that
time, I couldn't ask her (the friend's acquaintance) to come over to my place
every day because it took about 30 minutes by car, and I did not have enough
power to go to her place by myself, so I gave up. I was not cautious of her
because I found that it was the same as what I was told ten years ago.
After that, I received Johrei from the teacher of the branch and felt a slight
pain in my ears. He said, "I'm doing Johrei toward kidneys," and taught me about
the relation between kidneys and ears. I felt that Johrei had a special power.
I asked to join the faith easily, given the words from the teacher, "You should
just try it."
I was easily very tired, and so I felt uneasy about sitting. Then, Ms. Fukanishi
visited me and did Johrei to me every day until I joined the faith. Thanks to
her, I could attend the initiation ceremony without collapsing.
I heard at the first lecture of religious instructions that it was important
for me and my husband to do mutual Johrei and to receive it every day, so I
led him to the branch the next month. As he asked to join the faith, Ms. Fukanishi
came to pick us up the following morning. We live in Yokkaichi city and she
lives in Misato town in Tsu city. He scolded me saying, "It's not good to ask
her who lives in such a distant place from here to pick us up," but we were
impressed by how kind and great she was. She'd do such a hard thing for others.
The delightful surprise and gratitude of that time are parts of our motivations
to keep our faith.
Since I joined the faith, I have had various purifications and I got a little
better and better each time. I am no longer laid up with sickness and can almost
always walk straight without tottering steps now.
My mother was allowed to join the faith in July the following year and so were
my husband's aunt and her husband in November. I heard that the aunt was suffering
from some diseases such as diabetes, dementia, and heart disease and those around
her recommended several different religions. Her husband (my uncle) said, "I
hate such religious things and so refused all of them. But, I was inclined to
try it because Hisayoshi (my husband) recommended."
While saying, "I don't know well if it is effective even when I receive Johrei,"
my husband talks to his colleagues, who he is concerned about, and does Johrei
I am very grateful to God for helping me, who was exhausted physically and mentally,
to become healthier and also for allowing me to apply myself to services of
God for saving people and follow the path of the Meishu-sama faith with my husband.
We enjoy practicing Johrei in harness together and would like to be strong in
faith with the whole family.
