My Personal View of Ghost Pictures

81pvowlMOmL

Yesterday, I watched a TV show featuring ghost pictures, where three judges commentated on ghost pictures. Though comments about ghost pictures have been often quite different from mine recently, those made by judges who appeared on TV in Showa era would often correspond with mine. A famous psychic Aiko Gibo(宜保愛子) or Mr.T, who was a founder of a new religion and famous in Kansai area, were capable of seeing the spirit world, aside from the level of the spirits behind them and that of their spirituality.

  • ghost picture 心霊写真
  • correspond 一致する
  • be capable of~ing 〜することができる
  • aside from A Aは別として

The producer of the TV show must have tried to make the TV program as objective as possible by having three judges commentate on ghost pictures in advance and introducing a judgement common among them. However, the comments in this program were very different from mine.

  • objective 客観的な
  • in advance 前もって
  • common 共通の

Since the spirit world is invisible, there is no proving the existence of the world. So comments about it on TV are often accepted as they are without being verified. I think it’s more important in such programs to impart the knowledge of, and an appropriate attitude to, the sprit world  to viewers rather than just introducing judges’ comments. Now I’ll explain about ghost pictures from my spiritual point of view.

  • invisible 目に見えない
  • prove 証明する
  • existence 存在
  • verify 検証する
  • impart 教える
  • appropriate 適切な

In some of the ghost pictures shown in yesterday’s program, part of a subject’s body was transparent or missing. This phenomenon mostly suggest notices from ancestral spirits. The person in such a picture has to heed the part of the body because there is a possibility of the part or the whole body becoming ill sooner or later.

  • subject 被写体
  • transparent 透明な
  • phenomenon 現象
  • notice 知らせ
  • heed 気をつける

A certain judge in the program said that such a phenomenon was due to the possession of an evil spirit. But it’s wrong. If the spirit had been an evil one, the part of the body in question would have had a color or been hidden by a strange form of the spirit because the spiritual body of an evil spirit is very coarse.

  • be due to A Aが原因である
  • possession 憑依
  • in question 問題の
  • form 形象
  • coarse 荒い

When an ancestral spirit wants to let a descendant know his/her physical problem, the spirit covers up part of the descendant’s body to make it transparent on a picture. The spiritual body of an ancestral spirits who can protect its descendants is so clear as to make part of their descendant’s body transparent or invisible. In the case of evil spirits, on the other hand, the subject’s face is made black or an unnatural form appears in the picture.

  • let A 原形不定詞  Aに〜させる
  • so … as to~ 〜するくらい…
  • on the other hand 一方

In yesterday’s program, a picture of an elementary school student was shown. His face was deformed in the picture. This was due to lack of his parents’ memorial services for their ancestral spirits and a spirit of an aborted child. It’s easy for children to be affected by evil spirits, depending on the way their parents live.

  • deform 変形させる
  • be due to A Aが原因である
  • aborted 中絶した

In another picture, only clothes were appearing behind a subject. In this case, the phenomena was due to the work of a wondering spirit who didn’t want to surprise nor worry the subject yet wanted to attract attention. It’s just like a person who is fond of standing out is waving his hands before a television camera. The judges in the program made serious comments about this picture, but there’s no cause for worry, for evil spirits normally appear at the under part of a picture and evil gods at the upper part as strange forms.

  • wonder 彷徨う
  • yet にも関わらず
  • attract 引きつける
  • stand out 目立つ

The judges suggested that the picture be taken to a psychic to have it burned or purified. But this is not good because the owners of such pictures can fall preys to bad psychics. When you want to do something with ghost pictures, it’s best and safest to put it in an envelope and throw it away with other domestic waste. Do not try to burn it by yourself because it’s dangerous when an evil spirit gets out of the picture. Put it in a white envelope and seal it with glue or rice. Since evil spirits hate to be thrown away, it may make you forget the day of taking it out. So it’s better to put it in a garbage bag with other waste before collection day.

  • suggest 提案する
  • burn 燃やす
  • purify 浄化させる
  • fall prey 餌食になる
  • domestic 家庭用の
  • envelope 封筒

A picture in which an evil god appears can generate spontaneous combustion though not so often. So be careful about the place you put the garbage bag with ghost pictures in it before a garbage day. It’s better to put it on  a conspicuous place under which there is no combustibles so that you won’t forget forget the day you take it out. Also, if you go to a shrine or Buddhist temple to dispose of it  by car, you can have a car accident on the way. So it’s best to put it at a garbage collection area in the neighborhood.

  • spontaneous combustion 自然発火
  • garbage ゴミ
  • conspicuous 目立つ
  • Buddhist temple お寺
  • dispose of A  Aを処理する
  • on the way 途中で

You may think “Is this picture OK?” or “What about that picture?” But don’t worry. You are not affected by such strange pictures as long as you hold a memorial service for your ancestral spirits every day. All you have to do is throw such pictures or films away or delete them. What I mentioned above is my personal view. Please use it as reference. Comments about ghost pictures on TV might change from now on, don’t they?

  • memorial service 供養
  • delete 削除する
  • mention 言及する
  • reference 参考
