How to pacify your house and land

How to *kuyō or bless the ground( your house and your land) 

From the very early stage of this blog, I have been mentioning about the lowest level spirits such as grass, trees, stones, house… all nature spirits will start to speak out very soon.  Due to the recent high development of cameras and videos, we are now starting to witness these little spirits on the ground and floors.
Until now only people with psychic visions were able to see them, but from now on, it will be seen in everyone'e eyes. These spirits were called the 地霊 ji-rei (ground spirits) from the ancient time. And in Japan, we have a 地鎮祭 ji-chin-sai (a Shinto ground ceremony to pacify the local guardian spirits) when building something new on top of a land.  However, in the recent years, this kind of ideas honoring the local spirits are performed less and less. And there are far too many new religions that only tries to make money, teaching wrong ways of kuyō that is not really working for the spirits. The spirits who live in the lower area than your knee height are very clingy and affect the living human beings. 
We sometimes see death spots (the dot patterns that appear on the skin on a corpse). These are actually marks from the clinging spirits on the human being around the ankles. People do get affected from these spirits and change the fate of the family or the individual's life. 
If you are feeling some kind of weirdness about your home or the land, I suggest you to do this floor kuyō. Make a *tanzaku, thick washi paper small board and write "The place for the spirits of the house and the land" (or in your own words equivalent to this). Put it on a tray and place it on the floor.
However, it may not have an effect if you have not been doing ancestral kuyō for over a year. I would say, don't do it since ancestral kuyō should come first. You will need the guard from your ancestors in order to have this work properly. If you do sense spirits in your house that are an unpleasant experience, this will work quite quickly.  You don't have to do it if you don't have any weird feelings about your place. If things are normal it is unnecessary.
The reason why it has to be on the floor and not on a higher altar with the ancestral kuyō is because these spirits are the lowest level spirits and they literally cannot come up to any higher places than the ground/floor level. The gravity is pulling them down and they don't have the power to go any higher. In order to pacify the spirits of the ground/land/house, you must make another altar on the floor separately from your ancestral kuyō alter.

When doing ancestral kuyō, the ancestral spirits will come around one by one in the right time to receive the blessing. But with the lower level spirits, they will come swarming and craving for the human's compassion and the scent of the incense. They will continue to throng around until they had enough. And they will eventually be able to move to the next dimension to the right place where they belong depending on their karma.
In Japan, there is a common custom to place a pile of salt at one's door way. But this will only avoid the spirits. And it only works temporary. This will not able the spirits to move to a higher place(dimenson). Therefore, in order for the spirits to leave your place for good, you must give them an altar and incense(the scent is like food for the spirits.)

Details on how to do the floor kuyō for the spirits in your land and/or house.

  1. Make a *tanzaku, thick washi paper (if not washi, best to find material made out of tree bark, natural material paper) small board and write "The place for the spirits of the house and the land" (or in your own words equivalent to this). Put it on a tray and place it on the floor. Better to have a stand for the tanzaku  (see example: or something to hold it straight up.
  2. On the tray, you will also have an incense burner. Light up one incense daily.
  3. Put your hands together and say this or something equivalent, " To the spirits who reside on this land and house, I thank you for letting me live in this house and this land. I offer this scent to you." The main purpose here is the scent of the incense. It's like giving food to them. It will nourish their soul. So the words can be very simple. 
  4. Once that prayer is done, leave the place.
  5. After one hour, if you need to move the tray you can. Make sure the incense is out completely.
It is best to do it for 7 days and preferably everyday. If you can't do it consecutively, that fine. But do it for 7days. After that you don't need to do it, unless you felt something is unpleasant at your place. 

Once again, you don't need to do it if you don't feel there is any problem. If you are not sure whether to do it or not, it means you don't need to do it. If you need to do it, you will know right away with your ancestral spirits guidance.

The right location for the kuyō

  • The location to place the tray(alter) would be usually (North~East) which is called the kimono(鬼門, demon's gate). Place it on that direction where people don't hang around. But if this location feels not right, the next ura-kimon(裏鬼門, the opposite demon's gate) would be (West~South).
  • The hallway or kitchen is another good place. Without thinking about those direction, if you feel this is the right place, then go ahead and place it there. When doing it in a hallway, it's better to keep the door closed if there is a door at one/both end of the hallway while doing the prayer.
  • Avoid the entrance area where people walk with shoes on.
  • Another good location is where you find an area that feels coldness. If there are several places like that in your house, do it in all locations one by one. (It can be done in the same day, but don't do it all at the same time. )
  • If you are living in an apartment building, the floor you live on would be the ground floor for you. 
※ The floor kuyō should be at least one meter away from your ancestor's alter.
※ You can move the tray within 7 days but do one place at a time. Best to do one place a day. 
※ And before you place the tray, best to clean the floor.

The right time for kuyō

You can do it any time. For ancestral kuyō, we avoid the unstable hours (one hour before and after the sunset. Midnight to 3am). But for the floor spirits the hours are irrelevant.

The tools for kuyō

  1. The tanzaku paper board (place for the spirits to reside). It should be at least 30cm long. Best if it has a gold rim. Use a black ink pen/marker when writing the words. The gold or other colors are hard to see for the spirits.  ※once you are done with the kuyō, you can just put the tanzaku in the trash.
  2. A stand or something to hold the tanzaku. It needs to stand straight. Best to use a wooden stand. You can just use two pieces of small wood and cut the middle so the tanzaku fits in. Make sure the wood was not used for anything else before.
  3. Incense. Use one every time. The longer the stick the better. 
  4. A tray. A wooden tray is the best. Color, size, shape is irrelevant. Better to have a plain one without too much drawings or letters painted on it.
※ Other points to consider: Best to sit down when praying but it's okay to be standing depending on the location. The lights can be on or off, it doesn't matter. You can do it for your summer/second house, a shop or any other types of business place as long as you own or renting the place. 
※ Don't rush it. Prepare it well and do it only when you find it necessary.

*Kuyō 供養: A memorial service or sending a prayer, blessing to honor the deceased. (ancestral worship)
 *Tanzaku 短冊 : A rectangular shape thick washi paper normally used in writing Haiku ( short poem). Common size is 366×62 mm (14 ½ x2 ½ inches).

What will you be inheriting?

   This morning at sun rise, once again , I felt the divine energy coming from Ama-no-hitsugu Shrine on my right arm.

    It is telling me that the true identity of the god of Ama-no-hitsugu (meaning 'the one who inherits the sun from heaven') is the sun god from the super ancient times who has been nurturing the human beings and all living creatures on Earth. Ama-no-hitsugu is the form that expresses the will of the sun. It also tells me that the time we are living now signifies the summarization and sort of an account settlement of the past 3,000 years, even 30,000 or 300,000 years. We will be entering a huge turning point towards a great evolution.

   The creation of the DNA of our physical body started from the fragments of meteorites that flew from other planets together with the five basic elements contained in the soil and rocks on Earth. 

   Izanagi (the sun) and Izanami (the moon) worked together to create human kind here on Earth. We humans are still the middle of our development, and the mental evolution will start happening from now on.   Will we be the one to inherit the life force of the sun ?  Or, will we be the one to lay inside the coffin ?  It is time. The greatest turning point for us human beings.

    We will be tested. Are we able to save ourselves? Will your ego be able to save your conscience (the sun) ?

    You do not have to go anywhere nor see any special person. The sun's will who raised us for 300,000 years is wanting to see whether we the children are able to become the savior for ourselves. He(she) also wants to see those who express sincere gratitude to Mother Nature (mountain, rivers, the sun, the moon…)

    We must first help ourselves. Humans have created a bad habit to be cruel, hard on self and at the same time keep looking at others and compare.

    When you are able to help yourself, only then, you have the potential to help others.

    Lets start by sending gratitude to ourselves, the greatest gift from the sun.

When the Angels' Trumpets are sounded

Yesterday, after the typhoon passed, in that afternoon, even in the forest where I live, I could here the strange omnious sound echoing in the sky.  I have never ever heard such weird sound in the passed.  

This phenomenon has been happening all over the world for the last few years. And no one really knows the cause of this. If it was an ordinary natural phenomenon, there must be records of it in history. But no one has ever heard this sound before in any country until few years ago.

This has been heard in cities and also in the forest where there are no artificial devices. Around the world, this mysterious sound phenomenon has been said to be the Angel's Trumpet, one of the prophecy in the Christian Bible, the Apocalypsis Johannis, the Book of Revelation.

The Book of Revelation was written to the Seven Churches of Asia surrounding Turkey where the ancient Christianity took place. I sense that this number 7 is actually talking about the G7 of today. It is a message, a warning, to the seven countries. And it makes sense that here in Japan, we are now hearing the Angel's Trumpet.  
The Book of Revelation writes about what would happen at the end of the world through Johannis's prophecy (
 According to the 12 categories in this book, the time schedule would be as followed (how I am sensing):
No.4   I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. 6:8-5
First Seal: A white horse appears, whose crowned rider has a bow with which to conquer. (6:1–2)
Second Seal: A red horse appears, whose rider is granted a "great sword" to take peace from the earth. (6:3–4)
Third Seal: A black horse appears, whose rider has "a pair of balances in his hand," where a voice then says, "A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and [see] thou hurt not the oil and the wine." (6:5–6)
Fourth Seal: A pale horse appears, whose rider is Death, and Hades follows him. Death is granted a fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and with the beasts of the earth. (6:7–8)
Fifth Seal: "Under the altar," appeared the souls of martyrs for the "word of God," who cry out for vengeance. They are given white robes and told to rest until the martyrdom of their brothers is completed. (6:9-11)
・・・・・the above was a prophecy up until 1990s.

Sixth Seal: (6:12–17): Earthquakes and Natural disasters
Interlude: The 144,000, from the twelve "tribes of Israel," are sealed as servants of God on their foreheads. (7:1–8)
A great multitude stand before the Throne of God, who come out of the Great Tribulation, clothed with robes made "white in the blood of the Lamb" and having palm branches in their hands. (7:9–17)
Seventh Seal: Introduces the seven trumpets (8:1–5) There will be silence for a while and then the prayers will be offered.
No.5 Seven trumpets are sounded (Seen in Chapters 8-6 to 11-19).
・・・・From No.5 is now. 
The Angels's Trumpets are sounded now to the G7 countries.
The below are the phenomenon that would happen from now on. Everything will become 1/3 in the prophecy.
  1. First Trumpet: Hail and fire, mingled with blood, are thrown to the earth burning up a third of the trees and green grass. (8:6–7)
  2. Second Trumpet: Something that resembles a great mountain, burning with fire, falls from the sky and lands in the ocean. It kills a third of the sea creatures and destroys a third of the ships at sea. (8:8–9)
  3. Third Trumpet: A great star, named Wormwood, falls from heaven and poisons a third of the rivers and springs of water. (8:10–11)

・・・・・The satellite orbiters would fall and create great pollution.

  1. Fourth Trumpet: A third of the sun, the moon, and the stars are darkened creating complete darkness for a third of the day and the night. (8:12–13)

・・・・・unexpected solar and lunar eclipse kind of phenomenon would be seen.

  1. Fifth Trumpet: The First Woe (9:1–12)
・・・・・pests creating devastating starvation
  1. Sixth Trumpet: The Second Woe (9:13–21)
    1. The four angels bound to the great river Euphrates are released to prepare two hundred million horsemen.
    2. These armies kill a third of mankind by plagues of fire, smoke, and brimstone.

・・・・Four countries would go reckless and kill many.

 The little scroll. (10:1–11) John is instructed to eat the little scroll that happens to be sweet in his mouth, but bitter in his stomach

The contamination of food. Artificial sweetener.
Two witnesses prophesy for one thousand two hundred and sixtydays, clothed in sackcloth. (11:1–14)
Seventh Trumpet: The Third Woe that leads into the Seven bowls (11:15–19)
The temple of God opens in heaven, where the ark of His covenant can be seen. There are lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.

・・・・ The Convent hidden in Ise, the Tablets of Stone will be revealed.

Just with a quick glance, I am able to see these through my psychic vision. However, this will not happen. The key is to send gratitude to Mother Earth from the bottom of your heart. It is the moral living, the action we all take. This could change the prophecy.
Prophecies are telling us that this could happen and if this happens, it would end this world, so watch out. It is a warning to tell us that we need to change. Don't fear that these things will happen. Live your life with gratitude from your heart. And things will go on without too much disasters.

Words of Sri Ramana Maharshi

He was a true holy man who lived in south India from 1879.12.30 to 1950.4.14.  

The original "TALKS with Sri Ramana Maharshi"
(note: my English translation may not be the same as the original)

Maharshi was visited by an educated young man. 
The man questioned Maharshi.

"Why do you say that the heart is in the right? The biologists say the heart is in the left."

(Maharshi): You are absolutely correct. The physical organ is in the left.  I will not argue with that. But the heart that I am talking about is not the physical one and it only exists on the right side. This is based on my experience and there is no other explanation.

However you will be able to find proof in the original text of Ayurveda and The Upanishads. And Maharshi repeatedly read one phrase from each book.

(My thoughts)

When talking about spirituality, one must be careful how to use the word "heart." There are many meanings in this word. 

This young man is talking about the physical heart. And of course Maharshi knows the existence of the actual heart on the left side. But the heart Maharshi is referring to is the true heart, the innate god or the center of the divine. And this only exists on the right side.

Through my personal experience in this dimension, I sense the spirit body of the heart on the left side (but it is very close to the center of the body). Then as I move deeper into my senses, and I could feel the existence of the innate god on the right side about 3cm towards the right side of my body. Then further, I could see the ∞ shape rainbow color light moving in a circular cycle.   

This the picture of what it looks like looking from the front.

It is also important that the green light is seen at the center of the Möbius band. This is also known as the heart chakra.  

The left one (right on self ) is the innate god center and the shape is a hexagram. 
The right one (left on self) is the physical and spiritual center and the shape is a pentagram. 

In Kyoto the Kamigamo Jinjya(shrine), there is a two cone shape small mountains made out of sand. There are two mountains behind the main shrine and I believe they have transcribed the mountains onto the sand garden. But when you look at the ground you will see the circular movement described between the two corns.

You will find these two rising points and the middle point kind of shapes hidden i
n many ancient buildings around the world. This is the truth about the relationship between human and life. 

When you think about the nipples of the human breasts it is quite symbolic considering the location as well right above the heart. When the baby is drinking milk from her/his mother's breasts they drink it from both sides. They are not only drinking the milk but also consuming the spiritual energy from the left and the divine energy of the innate god from the right.

Women have bigger breasts than men. I think it may have to do with giving birth to a child. The women has more life/vital force than men in order to do so. Even when a man tries to surgically become a woman and take hormones it is still difficult to have the breast grow so big. Therefore, I think the women who have bigger breasts tends to have a bigger life/vital force. The vital energy force from within creates a specific image on the body. 

The important point of today is that there is the divine energy source on your right heart and the physical and spiritual energy source on your left heart. And know that every feeling and thoughts you have is recorded in your hearts. Send gratitude daily to both of your hearts. This would be a significant value to yourself.
