There is a summer event in Shinto called “Chinowa-kuguri”. The event is to pass several times through a large loop made out of kaya-kusa, sedges, and bamboos. By doing so, it is said to cleanse you from sins and epidemics, and clear away evil spirits.
I sense “death and resuscitation” in this act of “passing through the loop”. And when I did a reading on the origin of this event, I started to see the ancient agricultural age. After the harvesting, people made a hut with the same materials, sedge and bamboo. The farmers would stay in the hut quietly for two weeks to experience the oneness with god. It was to heal the body from all the work, but also to apologize and cleanse the sin for killing the small creatures in the soil during the production of the crops and to capture animals for food. The idea of “vow and cleanse” is the basics in Shintoism. As the time goes by, people felt that they didn’t have enough time to sit for two weeks, so it had been simplified into the event of “Chinowa-kuguri”. In the ancient times, people shut oneself in a hut once a year in order to experience the oneness with god, and to cleanse one’s sins.
The cells that construct our body are repeating the cycle of “death and resuscitation”. Even in a healthy body, cancer cells are produced every day and immune cells are fighting against it on a daily basis. When the cancer cells are little stronger then the immune cells for a certain amount of time, it will form a focus. Whether the cancer is malignant or benignant depends on one’s emotions. If one is cursing another, complaining all the time, selfish, or worried and having no sense of gratitude, these feelings will help to increase the cancer cells. On the other hand, feelings that will help to increase the immune cells is to have the sense of gratitude that you are led to live by the source, the Root. Everyone possesses both cancer cells and immune cells. As long as we live, we will make mistakes and create sins. Everyone carries both “Sin and Goodness”. If you know that you have sinned in the past, don’t forget about it and keep adding more goodness into your life, so at the end, goodness overcomes the sins. If you know you have sinned, you have more fate to be saved. Today, the “Chinowa-kuguri” can be done by saying “Ikashite-itadaite Arigato-gozaimasu. Thank you for letting us live.”

Q… During my high school and college years, I had social phobia and depressed most of the time. When I couldn’t communicate with people, I became depressed. Sometimes, it was so severe I couldn’t even sleep. Three years ago, I went to a psychiatrist who prescribed me anti-depression pills. I continued to take them for six months but it didn't really help. I know I had to do something about it, so I researched about the idea on “ki (chi)” energy. I started to do yoga and chi-gong exercises and another exercise called shiko-fumi (stamping of the ground done in Sumo wrestling) 100 times. The shiko-fumi is said to ground one’s energy. I also have been going to acupuncture treatment. In addition, I started the ancestral worship with gratitude after reading your book. As a result, I don't know what is really working for me, but I am less depressed and enjoying my daily life. My major at school was in the field of science and I plan to work in the same field. Therefore, I didn’t believe in the ideas about spirits and chi energy that I cannot see with my own eyes. However, recently, I couldn’t stop thinking that the experiences I had have something to do with the invisible energy. It is just my feeling, but I would appreciate if you could help me to understand a little more.
A.. This kind of depression, most of the time, comes from having lost souls in your ancestral pipeline. In his case, his problem started around the growth period. Most of the time, this means it’s not a physical cause. The descendents who have parents with expectations tend to be influenced by his/her ancestral spirits. Stop the gratitude sending to your ancestors and try doing just the other exercises. You will find out that the exercises only work for a while. Eventually the depression will come back on you.
The lost souls are not enjoying giving a hard time to their descendents. While you are alive, you might have sworn not to interfere with your descendents’ lives. However, when you die, you might think differently. All the people who exist here today are a result of something like a super complicated lottery that picked the combinations from time before time. The line that created You is only one line of combinations, that is your family line. On this single line, all of your ancestral spirits reside. When you die in peace with no regrets, you are able to choose another spirit line for your own growth. However, when you are not in peace and lost, you will remain in the same family line. The more lost souls in the ancestral line, the harder the descendents’ lives will be. When the pipeline is plugged, the spiritual force from the Root cannot reach you. All creatures derive from the Root. The breath from the Root becomes the life force for all humans.
Some people pay a lot of money to some ghost busters, trying to get rid of the lost souls. This is not the right way to solve your problem. Instead, it will worsen the situation. The only way to solve your situation is by sending gratitude to your ancestral spirits. This will clear your pipeline and increase life force.
Modern science understands only the surface of the magnetic fields. I sense that magnetic fields contain memories of the past and future. I sense that the human’s DNA, that format a physical body, is affected by his/her individual magnetic field. I believe this idea will be the key to elucidate the mystery about the universe. It will influence the concept of space and time. With the limiting knowledge of today’s science, the truth about the spirit world cannot be comprehended.

Q.. How are the Japanese Gods dressed?
A.. I have never seen a true god dressed nor in a human-like figure. I only see a shape of a fluid light or shall I say the light is forming a fluid shape. When I see something that forms a human-like figure, I immediately leave the place. The lower level existence tends to take the shape of a human figure.
From my experience, the color of the light is important. The existence cannot control its color. They cannot pretend to be another color no matter what. I can only tell the color when I have the permission.
Q.. What is a dragon ? Is it an entity that we cannot see in this dimension? Or did we use to have them on this earth plane?
A.. When the deities move around, the energy warps just like the flare on the surface of the sun. The ancient people were able to see this movement of energy and described it as dragons. There is another type of dragon figure entities that is the spirit of dinosaurs. 「竜神」is a spirit of dinosaur. There are two different dragon spirits. 「龍神」and「竜神」.
They can both be read as Ryujin, a dragon entity, but it is a totally different entity. 「竜神」has once had a physical body of a dinosaur in the ancient time. It comes from the World of Ghosts. At present, I sense that chickens inherit this dinosaur’s spirit body and DNA. At The Grand Shrine of Ise, they keep chickens free at the sacred ground which has to do with the sun worship tradition. Knowing that they have the spirit of dinosaurs, makes me feel excited and in wonderment. 「龍神」has never had a physical body. It is another form of divine energy. It looks like a dragon when it is moving from one place to another twisting its fluid energy body. The people in the ancient time were able to see this. The ranks of these two spirits are quite different.
