Karma decides your family name

伊勢2

Most of us don’t know about our ancestors more than three generations away. Even if there have been marriage, divorce, adoption,etc, we use our family name now owing to some karma. Karma to uses a family name is sometimes stronger than that of a blood relation. It can be said that before you were born, your family name had already been determined.

  • most 大部分
  • ancestor 先祖
  • generation 世代
  • even if S+V  たとえSがVするとしても
  • marriage 結婚
  • divorce 離婚
  • adoption 養子縁組
  • owing to A Aのために
  • blood relation 血縁関係
  • be born 生まれる
  • determine 決める

When a person’s name is changed by getting married or being adopted, years later, he/she will receive the family line’s karma of both good and bad or some spiritual background.

  • receive 受け取る
  • background 背景

In extreme cases, when your name is changed, your character, countenance and fate are also changed. Some people change their names influenced by onomancy, but to change a family name is a matter of great importance, in terms of law as well. In a family line, there are a huge number of ancestors if you trace back to the past a little. Wandering spirits would often come to a spiritual line of their offsprings as there is no one to depend on.

Children, combined with blood, have strong karma with their ancestral spirits of their father’s family line. As long as they ignore the spirits in trouble who have to do with the family name, some adverse circumstances will constantly emerge in this world.

  • combined with A Aと相まって
  • ancestral 先祖の
  • as long as S+V SがVする限り

Some people hold the right memorial service in earnest instinctively, even if they don’t worship God. Such people are likely to be fortunate about worldly matters, stable mentally, and have money to spare. In my spiritual eyes, they seem surrounded by golden aura and protected by a group of ancestral spirits.

  • memorial service 供養
  • in eanest 熱心に
  • instinctively 本能的に
  • worship 崇拝する
  • be likely to~ 〜しそうである
  • fortunate 幸運な
  • worldly 世俗の
  • matter 事
  • stable 安定した
  • mentally 精神的に
  • have money to spare お金に余裕がある
  • surround 囲む
  • aura オーラ
  • protect 守る

It is the ancestral spirits who watch over you, giving every possible help, like your parents. The Holy Spirit has no concern in the matter of individual happiness or unhappiness. Apart from the ancestors, nothing but evil spirits try to have concern in such individual matters.

  • watch over A Aを見守る
  • give every possible help 手取り足取り助ける
  • parent 親
  • the Holy Spirit 神霊
  • concern 関係
  • individual 個々の
  • apart from A Aは別として

By the way, the effect of a memorial service by devoting hot tea on ancestral spirits is only about 30% compared with that of three incense sticks plus Tanzaku plus gratitude. It just comforts the spirit a little, which is no more than an early stage of saving them. If there are many wandering spirits in your family line and you don’t prepare Tanzaku or a memorial tablet, undesirable phenomena could happen because there is nowhere the spirits alight on and as a result of it they can obsess one of your family members. So be careful when you hold a memorial service just by using hot tea without Yorishiro, for there is no place for a spirit to stay at temporarily.
