Sins Committed Through Ignorance

I have seen a lot of people in trouble. I feel evil effects of corrupt, fee-based psychics to be more serious problems than their immediate ones. Especially as to how to deal with living spirits, such immature psychics, not knowing the spiritual truth, make huge mistakes.

  • corrput 堕落した
  • immediate 目の前の
  • especially 特に
  • immature 未熟な

A long time ago, I was asked for help by a man who lost his wife. Taking care of his two small children, he had difficulty managing chores and work. He told me that the cause of her death was unnatural and he was not convinced by it, and asked me if she was resting in peace.

  • chore 家事
  • cause 原因
  • convince 納得させる

Taking a look at her through my psychic vision, I found that she had been in pain for about three years. One of the reasons for her pain was that she was worrying about her children but this was not the major one for her pain. Her spiritual body was tied up with spiritual ropes in layers because of an occult art. At the sight of it, I knew that some psychic did a wrong thing to her.

  • psychic vision 霊視
  • pain 痛み
  • in layers 何層にも
  • occult art 呪術

I said to him “You’ve met a psychic before, haven’t you?”  He told me that, one year before his wife died, he was suffering from work-related stress and had a mental breakdown, so he asked a psychic for help. The psychic was famous in his neighborhood and had written several books.

  • work-related 仕事関係の
  • mental breakdown ノイローゼになる
  • neighborhood 近隣

He was told by the psychic that his wife’s living spirit had possessed him. Since he had a quarrel with her many times in those days, he was surprised to hear that and thought what the psychic said was accurate. The psychic performed a ritual of clearing his spiritual body of her living spirit two times. He paid the psychic fifty thousand yen at each time. He told me that his wife became weaker and weaker since then when he thought back.

  • possess 憑依する
  • accurate 正確な
  • ritula 儀式
  • clear A of B AからBを取り除く
  • think back 振り返って考える

Living spirits are not ones of dead people. Therefore they are not the subject of exorcism. Low-level psychics lump all kinds of spirits together and  perform the same spiritual ritual. Though there may be psychics who they say can perform different rituals depending on the subjects, they only know a few types of rituals at most. They throw a rough, aggressive magnetism at the subject, not knowing what they’re doing. The fee-based psychic was responsible for his wife’s death. Later, she managed to rest in peace thanks to her husband’s grateful memorial services.

  • subject 対象
  • exorcism お祓い
  • lump 一緒に扱う
  • at most せいぜい
  • aggressive 攻撃的な
  • responsible 責任がある

There are not a few people losing their luck because of their dependence on something spiritual or strange. Lucky persons, more often than not, make efforts in real life and have no relation with religious groups or weird psychics. Living persons give off their living spirits so often that you cannot cope with them all. If you meet someone and feel something strange, all you have to do is utter words like “Go back where you were,” or “I’m sorry” together with his/her name. Adding “I am grateful for his/her being kept alive,” makes the words much more effective.

  • luck 幸運
  • dependance 依存
  • more often than not 大抵
  • relation 関係
  • utter  発する
  • effective 効果的な

When you have a bad feeling about someone and your living spirit is about to arise, just try to be grateful for being kept alive and remind yourself of gratitude to your ancestors. You don’t need to say his/her name, nor do you need to turn to fee-based psychics who exaggerate possession or exorcism. Rather, your present situations would be worse. You may feel it’s good at first, receiving help from the psychic but later you’re sure to regret what you’ve done, when you’ll find yourself having lost a lot of precious money and good relationships.

As long as you live in this World of Reality, you cannot avoid falling ill, having a broken heart, making a blunder in your work and so on. These are the right things to happen, for you’ve come into this world for the purpose of experiencing unavoidable circumstances such as propensity, aging, sickness and death. Do not waste your great adventure called life.

Hidden True Name

廃墟の中の鳥居

All the Western sorcery and occultism are influenced by Egyptian magic. And this Egyptian magic seems to originate from Kotodama(言霊) magic, which was used in the Japanese civilization tens of thousands of years ago and passed on to Egypt through regions and ages.

  • sorcery 魔術
  • originate 始まる
  • civilization 文明
  • pass on A Aを伝える
  • region 地域
  • age 時代

In Egyptian myths, it is regarded as fatal for a god to have others know its hidden true name. The names of gods known to the public are false names, not true ones. Once the true name is known to someone, the god loses its power and ends up in being used by the caller.

  • myth 神話
  • regard A as B AをBと見なす
  • fatal 致命的な
  • hidden 隠された
  • false 偽りの
  • end up in~ing 〜するはめになる

This is a truth which shows a spiritual aspect precisely.The same thing can be said about exorcism, too. If you see through the name of an evil spiritual being attacking you and call the name, the evil spirit makes off and in turn begins to attack the person who has ordered it to do so. Evil spirits betray and go over to the stronger easily.

  • aspect 側面
  • precisely 正確に
  • exorcism 悪魔祓い
  • attack 攻撃する
  • make off 退散する
  • go over to A Aに寝返る

To see through a true spiritual name, it is necessary that you have more powerful spiritual ability than that of the other. A spiritual battle has to be fought without letting the other know each other’s spiritual name.

  • necessary 必要な
  • ability 能力
  • battle 戦い

In wars in the Western world before the medieval period, it was regarded as important to know the name of a spiritual being the enemy worships and spiritual, magic battles were fought together with military ones. The same kind of spiritual battles were fought in Japan too in the Age of Civil Wars.

  • the medieval period 中世
  • worship 崇拝する
  • together with A Aと一緒に
  • military 軍事的な
  • the Age of Civil Wars 戦国時代

Well, if you feel sick or have a concern after you had a quarrel with someone, think of his/her name and try saying “Mr. So-and-so, just go back!” or “Ms. So-and-so, go back where you were !” If the wraith of that person has come to you, the wraith will come back to the person himself and he will suffer all the curses he himself put. To cut off the negative chain with the other, you have only to recall to your mind repeatedly “Mr./Ms So-and-so, thank you so much for keeping us alive.” This is very effective.

  • feel sick 気分が悪い
  • quarrel 口喧嘩
  • concern 気がかりなこと
  • think of A Aを思いつく
  • try ~ing 試しに〜してみる
  • so-and-so 何々

There a lot of false psychics in the world who say “This is a word of so-and-so deity,” “This is the revelation of God” or “My guardian deity is the great so-and-so god” abusing gods’ names. Such a people are far from psychics because they are giving the name of gods. They’re pathetic people who reveal that they have no ability to sympathize with holy spirits at all. It is because they are not sympathizing that they cling to the bombastic name of gods and try to bluff to give themselves authority.

  • revelation of God 神示
  • guardian 守護
  • deity 神
  • abuse 濫用する
  • out of the question 問題外の
  • say out A Aをはっきり言う
  • reveal 明らかにする
  • sympathize 共鳴する
  • cling こだわる
  • bombastic 大げさな
  • bluff 虚勢を張る
  • authority 権威

In the future ahead, all human beings have to turn to their own Inner God. The name of God you can utter will be “Inner God” or “God.” It is a very good thing for the people living in Japan, including foreigners, to remind themselves of the name of God “A MA TE RA SU O HO MI KA MI”(アマテラスオホミカミ), which only corresponds with its true name among gods and is known to the public. The name has the holy energy which dispels evil energy.

  • turn to A Aに向かう
  • Inner God 内在神
  • enough 十分な
  • including A Aを含めて
  • correspond with A Aと一致する
  • dispel 祓う

FAQ 15-16

Q15.

I started to hold a memorial service for my ancestors, and I had a question the other day. Is it OK to write my surname in Joyo Kanji (常用漢字), the commonly used Chinese characters, on the Tanzaku I use during the service ? In the case where the Kanji I use daily is different from that of the transcript of the family register, such as 斎藤 vs 斉藤, 大澤 vs 大沢, 渡邉 vs 渡辺, which character should I write?You said before that it’s better to write the words written on the Tanzaku should be easy to read because ancestors staying in the lower of level of the World of the Dead have bad eyesight. So that’s why I’m a little bit worried.

  • the other day 先日
  • surname 苗字
  • commonly 一般的に
  • transcript of the family register 戸籍謄本
  • It is better to~ ~した方がよい
  • eyesight 視力
  • that’s why  S+V そういうわけでSはVする

Answer.

The surname you write on the Tanzaku should be the one you’re now using. So hold the service using your Chinese characters you use in daily lives. There is a spiritual meaning in using the Chinese characters you use now. People in Japan had been using the name of a house before they began to use their own name. In the process of changing the name of a house to a surname, a word in the name of a house was used again in the new surname. So the spiritual current has been taken over in this way.

  • daily lives 日常生活
  • process 過程
  • current 流れ
  • take over A Aを引き継ぐ
  • in this way このように

Q16.

My family visits a temple of Fudo(不動)every year to have a Buddhist priest pray for avoiding disasters and make a fire-offering for each mebmber of our family. Should we stop this deed for fear some spiritual dirt might be attached to us ?

  • Buddhist priest お坊さん
  • aviod 避ける
  • disaster 災難
  • fire-offering 護摩
  • deed 行為
  • for fear S+V 万が一SがVするといけないので
  • attach くっつける

Answer.

Strictly speaking, the deed is unnecessary and you’ll have a spiritual handicap. On the contrary, an occult art for personal desires to be realized like this is no good. The fact that you paid money for luck might ease your mind but it is nothing more than solace. In the future ahead, you had better not take on unnecessary magnetism of such a magic ritual. Since the beginning of the Heisei period, more and more people have had an accident just after receiving a magic ritual for a personal profit. The accidents are caused in part by carelessness out of a sense of security, but the age has already begun when anaclitic faith has the opposite effect to what was intended.

  • strictly speaking 厳密に言えば
  • unnecessary 不必要な
  • occult art 呪術
  • solace 気休め
  • had better not~ 〜しない方がよい
  • take on A Aをおぼる
  • magnetism 磁気
  • magic ritual 祈祷
  • profit 利益
  • anaclitic 依存的な
