Reported by I.H. in Ehime on 13 August 1952
About thirty years ago, I started to fear for thunder and this fear grows year by year. I become extreme astraphobia recently. I know that it isn’t worth for my age but I gave up that nothing can do. Besides, my phobia is very peculiar. I feel sick on a cloudy day in summer. When we cannot get good reception on the radio because of the weather, I started to have a palpitation. I feel as if each beat shortens my life and soon creep into bed. Even if I sleep deeply, I suddenly wake up soon after hearing the slightest sound of thunder in the shade of mountains. When I have a feeling that it’s thundering, I can never go out even one step. I am in trouble in such a situation.
Shortly after I became a believer in Sekai-Meshiya-kyo, I knew that an instructor Mr H visited us on 10 July. It was threatening to rain on that day. I usually never go out but felt like picking him up for some reason. I walked for 12-kilo meters with an umbrella to pick him up. When going back to home, I heard that a fairly intense thunder roared soon after I left. I was pleased that I didn’t have to hear it as I went out to see Mr H. It kept raining through that day. When I woke up at dawn because of thunder, I didn’t know why but I was calm state even though I heard the roared sound of the thunder. As for my wife, she had been awake in bed for an hour. The sound of a tremendous lightning strike interfered with her sleep. Thanks to Meshiya-sama, my terrible astraphobia was completely cured by his divine virtue. I was really convinced how great spiritual virtue of God is. I immediately asked to enshrine the holy object of worship and the holy folding scripture. I hope to save and help worried people as many as possible. I thank Mashiya-sama very much and ask him to protect us as much as possible. Thank you very much, Meshiya-sama.
