Only Genuine Shinto Prayer is the One Yamatohime-no-mikoto Received from Above

There used to be high government officials called Jingi-kan(神祇官), who  had supported shinto rituals held by the Imperial Family since the age of the ancient Ritsuryo system(律令制度). The position was handed down from parents to children because of the secrecy of the rituals. It’s like if your father has a powerful position in the Imperial Household Agency, you are supposed to enter it, too.

  • official  役人
  • ancient 古代の
  • secrecy 機密性
  • be supposed to~ 〜することになっている

As a result, powerful families who have occupied the position of Jingi-kan came to express their own authority. They, trying to gain Emperor’s favor, took advantage of the high position and came to be haughty in their behaviors. They also formed their own shinto sects to make money

  • authority 権威
  • haughty 傲慢な
  • sect 流派

Inside the Imperial Court, they furiously competed against one another for promotion, keeping an eye on the others. Holding back rivals from achieving success, they were absorbed in factional strife. They sometimes went so far as to hurl imprecations at their rivals.

  • compete 競う
  • promotion 昇進
  • keep an eye  見張る
  • absorbed 熱心な
  • factional 派閥の
  • imprecation 呪詛

There seems to be the same kind of rivalry among politicians and high government officials in the modern world, too. The character of privileged people has been the same since ancient times. Human societies have not made much progress in this respect.

  • the modern world 現代世界
  • privileged 特権を持った 
  • progress 進歩
  • respect 点

The problem is that some powerful families asserted that they had been involved in the secret rituals by the Imperial Household since the age of Emperor Jinmu(神武天皇), and made up shinto prayers that they said had been handed down only in their families. Most shinto prayers handed down to the present day are fake ones made up like this. It’s natural that such prayers should have no effect on holy spirits.

  • assert 主張する
  • make up A Aをでっち上げる
  • hand down  A Aを伝える
  • the present day 現代
  • fake 偽の

In modern times, a certain family was expelled from the Imperial Court because the family was defeated in a factional struggle against Yoshida family(吉田家) and condemned by Emperor Meiji(明治天皇) for their spirituality in shinto rituals. This family had also formed their own shinto sect. It is said that when the family left the Imperial Court, it predicted that without their shinto rituals, the Imperial Family and its nation would be perish, which is nothing more than a parting shot by those who cling to power.

  • modern times 近世
  • a certain ある
  • expel  追放する
  • defeat 打ち負かす
  • condemn 避難する
  • predict 予言する
  • perish  滅びる

The system of Jingi-kan has gone now, but somehow a shinto prayer that is said to have been handed down in a certain family, who has already died out, is popular these days. Some self-appointed psychics or healers are making a lot of money by telling their clients this shinto prayer. They really don’t know what this shinto prayer is like and its spiritual background. They buy the license of using it from a bogus psychic and with unfounded confidence sell it to those unfortunate, not knowing what they do makes their and people’s Inner God disappear.

  • somehow どういうわけか
  • self-appointed 自称の
  • background 背景
  • bogus インチキの
  • unfounded 根拠のない
  • unfortunate 不運な

A personal god of Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami(天照太御神) feels sad about this. A personal god of Susanoo(スサノオ) tells me that he will catch at once all of the scoundrels, responding to the false shinto prayer. The only genuine shinto prayer from the World of Gods is the one Yamatohime-no-mikoto(倭姫命) received from above −Oharae-no-kotoba(大祓詞). The other ones are what humans made up.

Smoke of Incense Sticks has the Power to Cut off Negative Magnetism

81pvowlMOmL

In my opinion, bad dreams are phenomena that happen instead of the realization of them. I think that bad dreams are not to be realized in the World of Reality and their negative energy is sublimated in the dreams. For example, if you have a bad dream of a car crash, you will drive more carefully or stop driving for a while. As the result, you can avoid a car accident. If you have a good dream, on the other hand, you might make more effort so as to realize the dream, which may make it happen.

  • opinion 意見
  • phenomena 現象
  • sublimate 昇華させる
  • car crash 衝突事故
  • on the other hand 一方
  • effort 努力

There is a good way to prevent bad dreams from happening intentionallyーholding thankful memorial services for your ancestral spirits with the use of three incense sticks. Holding such a memorial service every day, even for a couple of minutes, generates magnetism of gratitude, and this magnetism counteracts accumulated negative energy. The simple action of a few minutes in the morning like this can offset what otherwise would happen later that day. Magnetism of gratitude does neutralize accumulated negative magnetism.

  • prevent 妨げる
  • intentionally  意図的に
  • thankful 感謝の
  • ancestral 先祖の
  • incense stick 線香
  • generate 発生する
  • magnetism 磁気
  • counteract 相殺する
  • otherwise さもなければ

Smoke of incense sticks is very effective not only for appeasing ancestral spirits but also for cutting off negative magnetism. It’s more effective than salt. My impression is that “cutting ” or “cutting off”  is more suitable expression than “purifying.” Spiritual magnetism, or ectoplasm, looks like smoke. It differs in color and subtlety according to its dimensional level and content. I perceive that the spiritual magnetism of holy spirits, for example, has a certain color and consists of fine particles, while that of low-level evil spirits feels damp and sticky.

  • effective 効果がある
  • appease 慰める
  • cut off A  Aを切断する
  • impression 印象
  • subtlety 精妙さ
  • dimension 次元
  • consist 成る
  • particle 粒子

Spiritual magnetism and smoke of incense sticks are so similar in complexion and physical matter that the smoke can have a strong influence on spiritual magnetism. The smoke can give comfort or solace to your ancestral spirits or other spirits related to you and counteracts negative spiritual magnetism.

  • similar 似ている
  • complexion 様相
  • influence 影響
  • solace 慰め

I know various kinds of methods to corp with evil spirits, whose spiritual magnetism is negative,  but the use of incense sticks is one of the most effective methods for repelling them. This is derived from a secret ceremony of Taoism and very effective in cutting off a target. Incantations or prayers can’t match the power of smoke of incense sticks. One of the reasons that the successive Imperial Families have adopted Taoism in performing rites is that an Emperor who first adopted it was very surprised at the effectiveness of smoke of incense sticks.

  • varous 様々な
  • corp with A Aに対処する
  • repel 撃退する
  • be derived 由来する
  • Taoism 道教
  • target 対象
  • match 敵う
  • the Imperial Family 皇室
  • successive 歴代の

The secret ritual with the use of incense sticks is not performed in modern shintoism. But incense sticks used to be used at rituals in the past when Taoism was introduced in shintoism.  I feel the secret ritual was passed down to the Imperial House and became the origin of Kodo(香道), the cult of incense-burning. In Taoism, long incense sticks are still used in performing rituals.

  • modern  現代の
  • used to~ 〜したものだった
  • pass down A Aを伝える
  • origin 起源

The essence of my personal method of holding the memorial service with the use of incense sticks lies in spiritual phrases and the timing of saying them. While you’re holding a memorial service, great things are happening in the other world you cannot see. The smoke of the third incense stick for other spirits related to you keeps you away from negative spiritual magnetism of evil spirits and erases your own negative magnetism.

  • personal 個人的な
  • lie 在る
  • the other world あの世
  • keep A away from B AをBから遠ざける

However hard you try to cover up your own bad things, you can’t bring good fortune as long as you keep it inside. The World of Reality is where you get something with a struggle. Running away from reality gets you nowhere. I don’t recommend my personal method to anyone, especially those who lack the will to practice it on their own, because it can have adverse effect on such people. The holy spirit helps those spiritually who try to help themselves and others gratuitously.

  • however~ どれくらい〜でも
  • cover up A Aを隠す
  • fortune 運
  • struggle 苦闘
  • get A nowhere どうにもならない
  • lack 欠く

The Original Form of Shinto Remains in Ryukyu Shito in Okinawa

Yamatohime-no-mikoto(倭姫命), who managed to reach Ise carrying the Sun God Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami on her back, and Himiko(卑弥呼), who mastered occult magics and governed the country, and the supreme priest of shintoism were all women. In the modern Japan, only Ise Grand Shrine has barely inherited this tradition.

  • manage to~ 何とかして〜する
  • govern 支配する
  • supreme 最高の
  • barely かろうじて〜する
  • inherit 継承する

The modern shintoism, however, has a male-centered structure, where shrine maidens have a low rank and are forced to retire at young age. Since God’s will is going to have effects upon the World of Reality, bureaucratic shinto priests will go away.

  • structure 構造
  • shrine maiden 巫女
  • be forced to~ 〜せざるを得ない
  • effect 影響
  • bureaucratic 官僚的な

Mt. Asama(浅間山, 朝熊山)erupted and an earthquake occurred at Kumamoto around the same time before and after Setsubun Day, which was the sign from the holy spirit that God’s will would begin to prevail in the World of Reality. The eruption of Sakura Island was just an omen of the eruption of Mt. Aso(阿蘇山).

  • erupt 噴火する
  • earthquake 地震
  • prevail 広まる
  • omen 前兆

The chinese character “熊” came from China, meaning”bear,” and the word “bear” stood for “sacred” “God” “the origin” in ancient times. Mt. Asama in Ise was a holy mountain where the Sun God and Hakusan-Kukuri- Hime-kami(白山ククリヒメ神) were syncretized and enshrined. When Naiku (内宮)of Ise Grand Shrine(伊勢神宮) was founded, the most important place for Hakusan faith was concealed. There are only a few shrines in Mt. Asama now.

  • stand for A Aを表す
  • syncretize 集合させる
  • enshrine 祀る
  • faith 信仰
  • conceal 隠す

I feel the spiritual line between the sacred mountain Mt. Hakusan and Mt. Asama is the prototype of the super-ancient land of the Japanese Archipelago and still the lifeline of Japan and the earth. The restoration of spirituality of Mt. Asama is a key to the future.

  • prototype  原型
  • lifeline 生命線
  • restoration 回復
  • key 鍵

Unexpectedly, the original form of the women-centered structure of shintoism remains in Ryukyu shinto in Okinawa. In Ryukyu shinto, they worship the sun and the eastern direction. Female priests of Ryukyu shinto, called Noro, carry incense burners with them, which is the most important ritual article for them. The smoke of incense sticks has been thought to attract the sun God and and recognized as essential for being with god. The incense burners are called Konjin by Noro and regarded as god itself.

  • unexpecetedly 意外にも
  • direction 方向
  • incense burner 香炉
  • attract 引きつける
  • essential 不可欠な

I hear that, in the Ryukyu Kingdom period, tax collectors, when collecting taxes from the licensed quarters, counted the number of incense burners put by the kitchen range so that the number of prostitutes couldn’t be fudged. Incense burners were what men were not allowed to touch and all women had. All women had their own incense burners in those days.

  • tax 税金
  • licensed quarter 遊郭
  • kitchen range 竃
  • fudge 誤魔化す
  • allow 許す

In old houses in Okinawa, each of the houses used to have a lot of incense burners women who had married into the families brought. So the number of the incense burners in a house showed how many generations had lived there and how old the house was.

  • marry 結婚する
  • generation 世代

I feel it’s meaningful that the worship of the sun, the eastern direction and Konjin has existed in Okinawa where the original form of shintoism still remains. Konjin is another name of Kunitokotachi-o-kami(国常立太神). Asama and Konjin-the true shinto that has been hidden for centuries is about to wake up from Ise-Hakusan Dou.

Keeping Shrines Clean Leads to the Dawn of the World

81pvowlMOmL

Yesterday was February 1, Sunday, before Setsubun-Day. Our family decided to visit  a couple of shrines in the local area. I knew there were two shrines in a village near my house, but I had never visited there before. So we paid a visit to the two shrines.

  • neighborhood  近所
  • village 村
  • pay a visit to A Aを訪れる

Entering the precincts of a small shrine, I saw a few children playing and found that the shrine was kept clean by someone because there was no trash there. Its explanation board said that Emperor Oujin(応神天皇)was enshrined at the shrine.

  • precinct 境内
  • trash ゴミ
  • explanation 説明
  • enshrine 祀る

Thinking that, since deities enshrined at shrines in the country were often Inari-shin(稲荷神) or Hakusan-shin(白山神), the shrine was a rare one, I was walking in the precincts, when I saw the light of a holy spirit leading to Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami(天照太御神). I thought that small shrines only local people visit were were pure and good because they didn’t visit there to pray for some unnecessary, selfish desire.

  • deity 神
  • rare 珍しい
  • lead 繋がる
  • pure   純粋な
  • desire 願望

To maintain the soul of a holy spirit, shrines should not necessarily be open to the public, I thought. It is the good care of local people that attracts the local holy spirit, regardless of the name of the enshrined deity.

  • maintain 維持する
  • necessarily 必ず
  • the public 一般の人々
  • attract 引きつける
  • reagardless of A Aに関係なく

Unexpectedly, Susanoo and Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami were enshrined at the other shrine. Though I saw nothing special there, I found that the shrine was also kept clean by someone. Then, I saw a vision that, with the aging of the Japanese population, more and more old people would help to maintain shrines of their neighborhoods voluntarily and  small, nameless shrines all over Japan would be kept more and more clean and rites and festivals would be held at shrines more often and as the result of it, the divine will of the parental God would begin to “thunder” from such small shrines.

  • unexpectedly 意外にも
  • the aging 高齢化
  • voluntarily 自発的に
  • divine 神の
  • thunder 鳴る

I hear that a lot of inexpensive PCs can be linked with one another to become more powerful than one supercomputer can be. Similarly, I anticipate that small shrines in the World of Reality will bring about a revolution in the World of Gods. It may have been inevitable that a lot of old people born in Showa era enjoyed Japan’s prosperity and luxury in this century because their souls who have realized the futility of the material civilization will take on the work to call back holy spirits.

  • inexpensive 安価な
  • similarly 同様に
  • anticipate 予期する
  • inevitable 必然的な
  • futility 虚しさ
  • material   物質的な

I feel that the magnetism of gratitude the readers of this blog, Ise-Hakusan Dou, offer to all shrines in Japan, including Inari shrines, will overwrite and change the spiritual magnetism of the shrines and cause them to function well. If you live abroad or an area far from shrines or you’re too sick to visit shrines, why don’t you worship the morning sun and offer your gratitude to it every day? Holy spirits know what you do.

  • overwrite 上書きする
  • cause A to~ Aが〜する原因となる
  • sick 病気な
  • the morning sun 朝日

A holy spirit tells me that when all people living in Japan, including foreigners, keep small shrines within four kilometers of their houses clean and offer their gratitude to them, the dawn of the world is near in all senses.

  • including A Aを含めて
  • keep A clean Aを綺麗に保つ
  • in all senses あらゆる意味で

Shrines and Temples Encouraging Visitors to Pray for Things Blaspheme their Enshrined Deities

81pvowlMOmL

During the times when the World of the Dead had great influence on society, such as Edo period, a lot of people doing business would often enshrined Inari-shin(稲荷神) at their shops or restaurants. Though Inari-shin is the god of agriculture originally, they used it for money making.

  • the World of the Dead 幽界
  • enshrine 祀る
  • agriculture 農業
  • originally 元々は

Inari-shin has a lot of minions called fox spirits, and some of them become corrupt and delinquent. They escape from their group, wander around the street, and possess pedestrians, making them drink alcohol to taste it or making them fall in love with someone to enjoy their love.

  • minion 子分
  • corrupt 堕落した
  • delinquent 不良の
  • wander ぶらつく
  • possess 憑依する

Once a fox spirit has enjoyed a man’s love affair, it gets tired of it and leaves the man, trying to possess another man. The moment the fox leaves the man’s body, he loses interest in his lover and breaks up with her. So if you’re in love, it’s important for you to make sure if you’re possessed with a spirit. Seeking your friends’ objective advice is good, of course, for as long as you’re possessed, all you can think about is your loved one. Your friends or parents may say to you “Why him?” or “What do you like about her?” You don’t need to accept everything they say, but try to listen to what they say.

  • once S+V 一旦SがVすると
  • get tired 倦きる
  • make sure 確かめる
  • objective 客観的な
  • as long as S+V SがVする間は

As you hold a memorial service for your ancestors with gratitude for being kept alive every day, you’ll come to be able to see the other person objectively and make right decisions.

  • come to~ 〜するようになる
  • make a decision 判断を下す

Going back to the subject, as such bad fox spirits fool around, they become tired of hunting people. They begin to seek for places where they are offered food and shelter constantly. And they look on small shrines on streets or in shops as convenient for them and stay on there. But it often happens that another fox spirit has already occupied the place and fight each other for the place. Just as a murder sometimes takes place where a homeless man kills another over a place to sleep, the same kind of thing happens in the World of the Dead, too.

  • fool around 遊び回る
  • offer 提供する
  • constantly 継続的に
  • convenient 都合が良い
  • occupy 占領する

If you have a psychic power and visit a shop where Kami-fuda(神札), a kind of talisman, of Inari-shin is renewed every year and food is offered to it every day, you can find a fox spirit sent by its boss. Idle fox spirits are no match for such trained ones belonging to groups. They possess people walking by to make them buy things. The instant he leaves the shop, the fox spirit leaves the person. Later he wonders why he bought such an unnecessary thing.

  • renew 新しくする
  • idle 怠けた
  • be no match 敵わない
  • trained 訓練された
  • walk by 通り過ぎる
  • article 品物

The problem is that every time the shop owner gets help from the fox spirit, the boss of the fox spirit absorbs life energy from the owner’s family line. Family lines who use fox spirits to meet their selfish desires begin to go to ruin in three generations or so. If the shop owner understands the mechanism of the World of the Dead and begins to offer only magnetism of gratitude for being kept alive to his small shine, the fox spirit will turn into the righteous one. Once it becomes a righteous fox spirit, it tries to have contact with another boss in the higher dimension because its spiritual vibration cannot be attuned to that of its old greedy boss. Ultimately, all spiritual beings, good or bad, are connected to the Primordial Being.

  • every time S+V SがVするたびに
  • collect 回収する
  • family line 家系
  • meet 満たす
  • go to ruin 衰退する
  • generation 世代
  • righteous 正しい
  • attune 合わせる

Shrines and temples that encourage visitors to pray for deities so that they can fulfill their personal desires blaspheme their enshrined deities. You should know that it’s very dangerous to visit such shrines and temples to pray for things. Also, it’s more dangerous to visit a self-appointed psychic or a spiritual healer or guru who are in bent on gain and charge a lot of money for consultation. If you’re acquainted with such people, you’ll be induced to come to them again and again. That is, misfortunes will happen to you one after another, and you’ll end up asking them for help everytime. Getting acquainted with such villains causes you to suffer fatal handicap. They make their livings taking advantage of others’ misfortunes. You’d better swear never to meet such people again.

Ise Grand Shrine was Established Guided by Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami

Ise Grand Shrine(伊勢神宮) has an important traditional ritual called Shikinen-Sengu(式年遷宮), where the old main building in one site is tore down and Kami, or “God” in Japaneseis transferred to a new one built in the other site every two decades. In this ritual, new ornaments and treasures are offered to Kami.

式年

  • ritual 儀式
  • tear down A Aを取り壊す
  • transfer 移す
  • decade 10年
  • ornament 装飾品

It has been discussed since a long time ago why this ritual takes place every two decades. There are a lot of theories about this, but I think it should be accepted as it is as a divine will because it has been held in this way since ancient times. The base of shinto is sun worship, and therefore shinto rituals are based on the movement and features of the sun.

  • discuss 議論する
  • take place 行われる
  • theory 説
  • divine 神の
  • ancient 古代の
  • worship 崇拝

For example, when the main building of Ise Grand Shrine is switched to the new one on the right site,

  1. The new main building being built on the right site means “The sun is born and rises as the morning sun.”
  2. The main building being torn down in twenty years means “The sun sets as the evening sun.”
  3. A new building being built on the left site again means “The sun is born in another world, or a foreign country.”
  4. The main building on the left site being torn down in twenty years and a new one being built on the right site mean “The sun turns the morning sun and is born in the original country. “
  • site 用地
  • rise 昇る
  • original 元々の

I feel that forty years it takes to perform the Sengu ritual twice is equivalent to twenty four hours of the sun movement. It can also be said that one day in the World of Gods is equivalent to forty years in the World of Reality. So, if you stay in the World of Gods for two days and come back to this World of Reality, you’ll be an old man or women over eighty years old. The left site of Ise Grand Shrine symbolizes the World of Reality and the physical body, while the right one the World of Gods and the spiritual body.

  • equivalent 同等の
  • symbolize 象徴する
  • physical body 肉体
  • spiritual body 霊体

This meaningful, mysterious ritual was started by Emperor Temmu(天武天皇), a very interesting person. Ooamano-ouji(大海人皇子), his former name,  who was a younger brother of Emperor Tenchi(天智天皇), raised a rebellion called Jinshin War(壬申の乱)over the problem of Imperial succession, defeated Ootomono-ouji(大友皇子), a son of his older brother, and named himself Emperor Temmu. This karma of the Imperial family has been passed on to this day, like Emperor Kammu(桓武天皇)drove his younger brother Sawara-shinnou(早良親王) to his death.

  • Emperor 天皇
  • rebellion 反乱
  • succession 継承
  • defeat 打ち負かす
  • the Imperial family 皇室
  • pass on A  Aを伝える
  • drive A to one’s death Aを死に追いやる

Taking a look at Emperor Temmu with my psychic power, I find that he was under the influence of Taoism introduced from the continent of China. Before Jinshin War, he left the Imperial Family temporarily to become a priest and went to Yoshino region of Nara prefecture, where he experienced Shugendo(修験道)and shinto rituals performed in Ise and Kumano regions. Since the former Emperor was interested in the dispatch of troops to Korean Peninsula, he had a strong connection with foreigners who mastered Taoism. It was Emperor Temmu, who mastered Taoism and Shugendo, that established rules for Shikinen-Sengu of Ise Grand Shrine.

  • Taoism 道教
  • introduce 伝える
  • temporarily 一時的に
  • region 地方
  • dispatch 派遣
  • peninsula 半島

It was only 2000 years ago that Yamato-hime-no-mikoto(倭姫命), inspired by the eighth level entity of Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami(天照太御神), visited Ise and established Naiku(内宮) of Ise Grand Shirne there. Holy stone pillars had been brought to Ise from a spiritual mountain Mt. Hakusan in ancient times. According to my inspirations,

*A holy stone pillar, which contains a breath of the Primordial God, exists at Geku(外宮) of Ise Grand Shine.

*Another holy stone pillar, which contains the tenth level entity of Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami, the Sun God, exists at Izougu(伊雑雑宮), whose official name is Izawa-no-miya.

伊雑宮2

  • holy 神聖な
  • contain 含む
  • breath 息吹
  • primordial 原初の
  • official 公式の

I feel that there has been an indigenous faith worshipping the stone pillar at the two areas since before Yamato-hime-no-mikoto visited Ise. During the period of Shikinen-Sengu, the local people gather white pebbles to put around the main building of Ise Grand Shine, which is a remnant of the historical fact. The reason why Yamato-hime-no-mikoto came to Ise seems to me that the eighth level entity of the Sun God was attracted to her mother, the tenth level entity of Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami, at Izougu.

  • indigenous 土着の
  • faith 信仰
  • gather 集める
  • pebble 小石
  • remnant  名残

In Japan exists Kuni-tama(国魂), the spritual entitity of the mixture of Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami and Kuni-to-ko-tachi-o-kami(国常立大太神). Guided by Kuni-tama, a lot of family lines, persons or souls have been summoned to this country to rule it.

Accumulation of Your Original Magnetism Brings Out the Power of Your Inner God

I bought nursery plants of Hon-Sakaki(本榊) and planted them in my garden in August last year. At that time, I put two Hon Sakaki plants on both sides of my shinto altar. They looked a little bit dreary because I wanted them to look like forests. Unlike Hi-Sakaki(非榊), which has dense leaves, Hon-Sakaki’s leaves are sparse and its stem has several large leaves. I added a Sakaki plant to each of them later, which made me satisfied.

  • nursery plant  苗木
  • shinto altar 神棚
  • dreary 侘しい
  • dense 密集した
  • sparse まばらな

I have not changed the plants put at the shinto altar since then. Half a year has already passed, but they still look fresh and green. Only a few leaves died and fell because they absorbed spiritual dirt. You don’t need to care about whether your Sakaki plants last long or not. It’s no use asking the meaning of the phenomenon. It’s important to change the water of the Sakaki plants with a positive mind every day.

  • absorb 吸収する
  • last もつ
  • seek for A Aを求める
  • phenomenon 現象

Offering gratitude to invisible spirits everyday, even for a few minutes in a busy day, discharges your negative magnetism, your original magnetism being accumulated at the same time. Wearing only your original spiritual magnetism does good to your health and luck. Those who believe in yourself without depending on any spiritual goods or religious organizations can easily show the power of their Inner God. I think that many successful people have this kind of attitude.

  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • invisible 見えない
  • discharge 放電する
  • accumulate 蓄積する
  • depend 依存する

In contrast, those who wear a lot of spiritual goods being sold by psychics in the name of God or mistakenly believe in evil spirits of the World of the Dead are likely to make wrong decisions and lose their luck because such dependence impedes their original magnetism. Their life force will weaker and weaker and their destinies will be changed for the worse.

  • in contrast 対照的に
  • decision 決定
  • impede 阻害する
  • for the worse 悪い方向に

Their ancestral spirits will protect them with an effort, but they, taking their help wrong, will end up buying more spiritual goods, devoting themselves to their bogus spiritual gurus. Gathering negative magnetism without offering gratitude to your ancestral spirits may make you feel happy temporarily, but your later life won’t be good. It’s the desire to take a shortcut in life that attracts unnecessary spiritual handicap.

  • with an effort やっとの事で
  • take A wrong Aを誤解する

There have been evil spiritual beings since ancient times that try to make people dependant and submissive like robots. They have been spreading the kind of beliefs that spiritually bind up people and weaken their Inner God, with the use of their minions who appear good but have ugly natures. It’s time to be disillusioned. You can never be free unless you find out the divinity inside yourself.
