Don’t be afraid nor make light of spirits.


In spring, I sleep well and feel good. It seems that physical bodies perceive the change of seasons during sleep and switch their sensors from the one for coldness to the one for warmth.  Apart from this reaction of a physical body, you can feel sleepy because of a spiritual reason.

  • perceive 知覚する
  • apart from A Aは別として
  • reaction 反応

There are a lot of people who have a car accident because they feel sleepy suddenly in passing a spot where a fatal accident took place in the past. You can be very sleepy when you go to a place which used to be a battle field a long time ago, or an office or a house where a lot of wandering spirits gather.

  • suddenly 突然
  • fatal accident 死亡事故
  • take place 起こる
  • used to be ~ 以前は〜であった
  • battle field 戦場
  • wander 彷徨う
  • gather 集まる

You have to be careful when you begin to yawn suddenly at some place. Even if it has nothing to do with spirits, you can yawn suddenly due to high-voltage lines affecting physical bodies magnetically or some other physical causes.

  • yawn あくびをする
  • even if S+V たとえSがVするとしても
  • have nothing to do with A Aと関係がない
  • due to A Aのために
  • mangetically 磁気的に

Also, there are some cases where children won’t stay in their rooms or can’t concentrate on homework feeling sleepy because of the effects of spirits. Of course, it is mainly because they just don’t like to study, but when their parents start to hold memorial services for their ancestors, the effects of wandering ancestral spirits on the children will decrease as the spirits feel at ease. As a result, such children come to concentrate on study and their grade will improve. I know a lot of cases like this.

  • concentrate 集中する
  • memorial service 供養
  • ancestor 先祖
  • decrease 減る
  • feel at ease 安心する
  • grade 成績

I have just written a lot about the relation between sleepiness and spirits. Well, then, what should you do when you feel sleepy? It is not good that you, afraid of spirits, try to avoid or remove them. It is worst to have the thought of “driving away” spirits. Self-appointed professional psychics swindle their clients who are scared of spirits out of their money in exchange for performing rituals to drive away spirits, but you would end up covering your spiritual dirt with other different spiritual dirt.

  • relation 関係
  • avoid 避ける
  • remove 取り除く
  • swindle 騙し取る
  • in exchange for A Aと交換に
  • ritual 儀式
  • end up ~ing 結局は〜することになる

Even living human beings would get mad if they are avoided or excluded, so would spirits. Also, if they are made light of by people, they will try to make them know that they do exist. So it’s important that you are not afraid of spirits unnecessarily nor make light of them.

  • get mad 怒る
  • exclude 排除する
  • make light of A Aを軽んじる
  • exist 存在する
  • unnecessarily 不必要に

When you feel the existence of spirits or feel sleepy extraordinarily, you should think “Thank you so much for keeping us alive.” This phrase includes subtle spiritual meanings which are not that you’re afraid of, making light of or attacking spirits. With this phrase, you can handle a wide range of spirits ranging from low-level to high-level spirits.

  • extraordinarily 異常に
  • include 含む
  • subtle 精妙な
  • handle 扱う

From now on, the new age will come when this World of Reality plays the main part. That is, living human beings will play the main role. Human beings with Inner God in their hearts will not be controlled by invisible spiritual beings like they were in the past. Therefore you don’t have to be afraid of spirits.

  • the World of Reality 現実界
  • main part 主役
  • Inner God 内在神
  • invisible 見えない
  • therefore それ故

A few people might get sleepy in holding a memorial service for their ancestors, which means that there a lot of ancestral spirits and spirits related to them who have longed for the service. If you practice holding memorial services with gratitude for them, with a Tanzaku, a strip of fancy paper, set securely and three incense sticks offered, everything around you are sure to change gradually for the better. Looking back later, you would understand it.

  • practice 実践する
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • be sure to~ 必ず〜する
  • gradually 徐々に
  • for the better 良い方向に

Today too,
