Causes lie in you


Many people think they have to have a purification ceremony held or clear themselves of evil spirits when something bad or weird happens to them. This is because they’ve got an idea that a thing that has nothing to do with them comes from outside. Did it really come from elsewhere ?

  • purification ceremony お祓い
  • clear A of B AからBを取り除く
  • evil 邪悪な
  • weird 気味の悪い
  • have nothing to do with A Aと何の関係もない
  • elsewhere 他の場所

There are cases that an evil spirit appears in a photo, or rapping sound is heard, to be sure. If they have the idea of clearing something coming from outside of yourself, when they experience some unpleasant things again, they will want once again the purification ceremony or the one for driving away evil spirits. The person in question seem to feel secured temporarily by doing such mumbo jumbo thinking “The symptom has gone” or “I’ve got really better.”

  • case 場合
  • rapping sound ラップ音
  • to be sure 確かに
  • drive away A Aを追い出す
  • experience 経験する
  • unpleasant 不快な
  • in question 当該の
  • feel secured 安心する
  • temporarily 一時的に
  • mumbo jumbo マジナイ
  • symtom 症状

But, the true factor of the effect is just a sense of security that he/she had a seemingly reliable person do such ceremony by spending a lot of time and money. The truth is he has got better just because of his own sense of security. If he had been unlucky, he would have been possessed with the psychic’s evil spirit and his mind locked up. In this case, he couldn’t feel nothing because his mind is bound up by the psychic.

  • factor 要因
  • effect 効果
  • sense of security 安心感
  • reliable 頼れる
  • spend 費やす
  • because of A Aのために
  • unlucky 運が悪い
  • be possessed with A Aに取り憑かれる
  • psychic 霊能者
  • lock A up Aを閉じ込める
  • be bound up 縛られる

Any psychic who holds a ceremony for driving away evil spirits in exchange for money is dangerous. No matter how good they appear, they need to make a living by making their clients repeaters. Unconsciously, they try not to let the clients go away. And as a result, the clients end up coming to the psychic again and again regularly.

  • in exchange for A Aと引き換えに
  • dangerous 危険な
  • make a living 生計を立てる
  • client 顧客
  • unconsciously 無意識に
  • try not to~ 〜しないようにする
  • as a result 結果的に
  • end up ~ing 〜するはめになる
  • again and again  何度も
  • regularly 定期的に

More than 80% of the spiritual phenomenon people feel is due to their own mind. A sense of guilt, reaction of a curse of his own, frustration, or despair about the present situation etc, are all its cause. I hear that in the U.S. there is always a girl around twelve of age at the house where poltergeist phenomenon take place. Girls who are at an impressionable age are very sensitive and their discontented mind causes the strange phenomenon.

  • more than A A以上
  • phenomenon 現象
  • be due to A Aが原因である
  • sense of guilt 罪悪感
  • reaction 反作用
  • curse 呪い
  • frustration 欲求不満
  • despair 絶望
  • the present situation 現状
  • cause 原因
  • take place 起こる
  • impressionable 多感な
  • discontend 不満な

While having an idea of purifying or driving away, their fear never disappear. Because the cause is in their mind. When their mind is satisfied, most of the unnatural phenomenon will disappear.

  • disappear 消える
  • satisfy 満足させる
  • unnatural 奇異な

The remaining 20 percent of the spiritual phenomenon is often due to the place itself. Only the person in question can solve this problem, not a filthy psychic who receives money from his/her client. Holding a memorial service for ancestors with three incense sticks and devoting gratitude to Ujigami(氏神),the local god, will take care of all the factors of the phenomenon.

  • remaining 残りの
  • filthy 汚れた
  • receive 受け取る
  • memorial service for ancestors 先祖供養
  • incense 線香
  • devote 捧げる
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • local 地元の

The hint is specified in the oharae no kotoba(大祓言葉)of Shinto, great purification words,too.

In the last part of Norito(祝詞),congratulatory prayers, there are words of “Hayaakitsuhime toiu kami Mochikaminomitemu”(速開都比売と言ふ神 持ち加加呑みてむ)and “Nenokuni sokonokuni nimasu Hayasasurahime toiu kami Mochisasurai usinaitemu”(根国底国に坐す 速佐須良比売と言ふ神 持ち佐須良比失ひてむ)

This prayer means that when sins or impurities need purifying, gods do not drive away or keep in a place or keep away from them, but “swallow and digest them.”

  • specify 明記する
  • congraturatory 祝いの
  • prayer 祈りの言葉
  • mean 意味する
  • impurity 穢れ
  • need ~ing 〜される必要がある
  • keep away from A Aを遠ざけておく
  • swallow 飲み込む
  • digest 消化する

As long as people are afraid of spirits and try to run away from them, the fear will never disappear. Any ceremony by a psychic for driving away evil spirits knows no bounds and is nothing more than a performance to collect money. If they begin to have gratitude for the fundamental truth that you are kept alive, the fear of spirits will be gone.

  • as long as S+V SがVする限り
  • be afraid of A Aを恐れている
  • run away from A Aから逃げる
  • know no bounds 切りがない
  • be nothing more than A Aに過ぎない
  • collect 集める
  • fundamental 根本的な
  • be kept alive 生かされている
  • be gone 無くなる

In the World of Reality, living humans are more powerful than spirits. Humans can be much more horrifying than spirits. Don’t be overwhelmed by a mere shadow.

  • the World of Reality 現実界
  • powerful 強力な
  • horrifying 恐るべき
  • overwhelm 圧倒する
  • mere 単なる
  • shadow 影

I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te  A Ri Ga To U Go Za I Ma Su

Thank you much for keeping us alive.
