The Divine Revelation on the Summer Solstice

Wrote : June 21st

Today is 夏至(geshi), the summer solstice. The longest daytime during one year, which means the sun is with us the longest. In Japanese Shinto, the supreme god is the Sun Goddess. Thus, this is one of the most important day.

The day of the summer solstice is when all of the Shinto shrines hold festivals to charge up the spiritual energy from the sun goddess, Amaterasu-Ohomikami.

Through out Japan, the shrine holds the Nagoshi-no-Ooharae (夏越の大祓), the grand purification of the summer. During this festival, a ceremony called Chinowa-kuguri (茅の輪潜り) is held. The ceremony is to pass several times through a large loop made out of kaya-kusa, sedges, and bamboos. The turn goes from left and then right and then left again making the shape of an eight, three times. By doing so, it is said to cleanse you from sins and epidemics, and clear away evil spirits.

This morning I chanted the Ooharae-no-kotoba (大祓詞). Just when I finished the chant, a divine message came through.

“ Unfortunately, a right turn fylfot (the opposite to 卍) has an image of an evil design because it was used by Hitler who was influenced by a Western mystic who told him to use this design as his logo. But for the World of Gods, both right turn and left turn fylfot is equally important. It has been used in many different ancient civilizations, and there are many traces throughout the world. It is a design to show one significant pattern of movement of divine energy."

The god tells me, thanks to all of you, "the vertical divine energy between Haku-san and Ise is now activated. For the past 1500 years, the yin energy of the left turn 卍had been dominant which made Japanese Buddhism prosper. From now on, the right turn fylfot, the yan energy will become dominant.”

Right now, the vertical line has appeared and it needs to grow the horizontal line to complete the fylfot shape. The key places for this shape to appear will be the Togakushi-Jinjya (戸隠神社), Kumano-Hongu-Taisha (熊野本宮大社) and Tamaoki-Jinjya (玉置神社).

From now on, when you are visiting a shrine, please make sure you are in silence and no thoughts in your head until you reach the main Honden shrine. An only send gratitiude. The kenzokus will be watching you. If you are not serious about this, you might experience some bad luck - unnecessary spiritual incidents may occur.

Once the fylfot is completed and start turning clockwise, the gate that is now hiding the Great Dragon god of Japan will be unlocked. When the Dragon is set free, all the people living in this dragon shape Japan will be awakened.

When my morning ritual was done, the sakaki leaves on the altar had blossomed. Just before the chant, the flowers where still a closed bud. The sakaki flowers are white and have five peddles. It looks like the Star of David. I felt this was a very good sign.
