Summer Vacation 5

When you go to Ise, you will see a shimenawa (twisted rope ornament) at the entrance of every store and household. When I look at the Ise style shimenawa, it reminds me of the sumo wrestlers ceremonial apron of yukozuna (highest rank.)

The features of shimenawa are : (1) Strongly grounded (connected to earth.)  (2) Orange (energy of the sun.)  (3) Seaweek (kami of the sea).  (4) Bundle of rice (uniting the whole.) These qualities are symbolic features attracting good fortune.

According to the Japanese mythology, the origin of shimenawa begins when the sun goddess Amaterasu-ohomikami became tired of the worlds poor condition. She locked herself in a rock cave. Her brother and others try to cheer her up and did some dancing (5) outside the cave. The sounds of happiness and laughter (6) made her come out from the cave. And from then, the entrance of the cave was decorated with shimenawa (7) to prevent her from going back.

We are children of Amaterasu-ohomikami. And we modern people are experiencing the same symptoms as she had experienced locking herself in the cave.  The above seven tools would help you prevent from depression.

Futadama-no-mikoto-kami (太玉命神) was the one who concealed the rock cave (the dark) by the shimenawa. Through my psychic vision, he was a spirit that took a human form who derives from the Tribe of Gad (one of the Ten Lost Tribes of ancient Israel.)

Believe it or not, the one who saved Amaterasu-ohimikami, the root of our Imperial family, was Jewish. The spiritual reflection of this matter is or will be mirrored in the world of reality.

According to the old documents, the descendent of Futodama-no-mikoto lives in Shikoku as Inbe (忌部) Family.  For the Daijosai (大嘗祭), the enthronement ceremony, held for the new Emperor, the fabric for the costume is made by the Inbe Family since the Taisho Emperor (1912~1926). Through my psychic senses, Meiji Emperor (1868~1912) was the one who decided that the fabric has to be made by the Inbe Family.

I would suspect that the design of the Inbe weaving (today their relative Miki Family takes over the tradition) has some traces of symbols used by the Tribes of Gad from the ancient Jews.

The Emperor is also called Mikado. Mi (御) is used in front of a word in means to pay respect. Kado must have come from Gad. A Romantic ancient memory came into my vision.

I really admire Meiji Emperor in many ways. He has done so many amazing works, a great spiritual revolution. And it is still going on.

Thank you for letting us live
I would like to spread the Gratitude Awareness towards ancestral spirits and everything around us so 5% of the world population will start acting on it on a daily basis.
