Strange Effects Metals Have on Human Beings


Turning on the TV, I found a TV program featuring Sedona in Arizona, the U.S. According to the program, Sedona is now the second most famous tourist attraction as a spiritual place behind Grand Canyon and the sightseeing for that town is booming.

The red huge rocks made by nature are magnificent. The color means that the rocks contain a lot of iron. Anyplace with a vein of metals underground can have effects on human bodies.

  • huge 巨大な
  • magnificent 壮大な
  • contain 含んでいる
  • vein 脈
  • effect 影響

One reason that Kukai(空海)chose Mt.Koya(高野山)as a place for Buddhist training was that there was a vein of mercury in Mt.Koya. The vermilion color used for the pillars or walls of temples is made from sulfur and mercury.

  • mercury 水銀
  • vermilion color 朱色
  • pillar 柱
  • sulfur 硫黄

Mercury is poison lethal in human bodies but the undulation it gives off brings about a stable state of mind and concentration. I think the reason that the walls of temples are painted vermilion over and over is to prevent the rot of the wood and to influence human minds.

Metals have various good and bad effects on human beings from mental aspects to physical ones. Also, by mixing metals the effects are complicated and wide ranging, which is related to spiritual alchemy in the Western magic arts.

Sedna has a climate similar to that of desert, so even the clouds of dust there seem to contain iron. Iron is essential for human bodies, contained in vegetables too, though. But too much is as bad as too little. Anything, taken in excessively, causes harmful effects inevitably. If you take in too much iron, it will make you age faster and your skin wrinkle by weakening your cells because iron has strong oxidative effect.

As a lot of greedy people who seek for weird experiences begin to come together, any sacred place turns into a bad spot which makes their fortune decline, far from uplifting their fortune, because the ground with a lot of iron inside accumulates bad energy as well as good energy. It is best to do everything in moderation in this world.
