The Way of Holding Memorial Services for Animals Different from That for Humans


I’m going to tell you about the way of holding memorial services for souls of animals. I know how you feel when your pet dies and you might wonder where your pet’s soul goes, because I have kept a cross-bred collie dog before.

  • wonder かしらと思う
  • cross-bled 雑種の

Seeing souls of animals, I feel that it takes centuries for animals to be reincarnated into humans. Frankly, it seems almost impossible. There is such a huge difference and distinction between human souls and animal ones in the spirit world.

  • century 生気
  • be reincarnated 転生する
  • frankly 正直に言えば
  • impossible 不可能な
  • difference 違い
  • distinction 区別

On the other hand, it is possible for humans to be reincarnated into animals. I have seen some animals who used to be Caucasian in their previous lives. I have never seen any animals who used to be a Japanese or a Jew so far. I’m not sure if I see such animals in the future, though.

  • on the other hand 一方
  • used to be~ 以前は〜であった
  • Caucasian 白人
  • previous 以前の
  • so far 今のところ

I feel that this has something to do with a secret of DNA related to the origin of the human race or their dietary habits. Well, a physical aspect and the reincarnation of a soul who resides in the physical body are related, in fact. Also, there are cases that an errand for the holy spirit possess an animal to express his will. But in this case, once his will is expressed, the energy of the holy spirit leaves the animal soon.

If you hold a memorial service for your pet animal, please do it like the following;

  1. If you kept the animal outside of your house, put a round bowl to put an incense stick in where your animal would often be and then stand one or two half-broken incense sticks there. If the place is soil, you can stick them into it.
  2. If you kept the animal inside of your house, put a round bowl on the floor where your animal would often be and then do the same thing. ※ You don’t need Tanazku(短冊), or a strip of paper, in either case.
  3. If you hold a memorial service for animals that were used for some research or eaten or killed in car accidents for example, stand a half-broken incense stick in the center of the bowl and offer gratitude to them after you hold a memorial service for your ancestors with the use of Yorishiro and three incense sticks and then the smoke is gone.

When you hold a memorial service for your pet animal, it’s important not to empathize with it too much. Please do it formally and calmly. Because animals are born into another world in fast cycle, your sad feelings to try to prevent them from leaving will do them no good. Just see them off positively.

  • empathize 同情する
  • formally 形式的に
  • calmly 穏やかに
  • in fast cycle 早いサイクルで
  • prevent A from ~ing Aが〜するのを妨げる
  • do A good Aのためになる
  • see A off Aを見送る
  • positively 明るく

The reason why you use an incense stick for animal spirits which is different in length from the one for human spirits is that they go to a different spirit world from the ones human souls go. It is not that the longer, the better. If the smoke of an incense stick doesn’t reach the animals, it means nothing.

  • length 長さ
  • the longer, the better 長ければ長いほどいい
  • mean nothing 意味が無い

Laws of nature work like magnet in the spirit world much more than we think. They act on souls according to their levels like human feelings don’t matter at all in a way. You can make the smoke of the incense stick reach your pet animal by showing a different “form” of holding a memorial service from that for human souls.

  • act on A Aに作用する
  • according to A Aに応じて
  • matter 重要でない

The World of Reality where feelings or compassion is valid is a precious dimension. That’s why it’s sometimes hard to live there, though.

  • compassion 情け

  • precious 貴重な

When your spiritual body leaves your physical one, you are to be attracted to another world according to the magnetism etched into your spiritual body. I hope you etch good magnetism into your physical body as long as you live. If you do so, you are to go on to another world automatically that matches with the amount of the good magnetism.
