Light of God
said founder Mokichi Okada, "endeavors to raise the individual
to a more enlightened state of consciousness. The invisible
Light of God, focused through Johrei, reaches the inner soul
and transforms it even when received with a skeptical attitude.
It awakens our divine nature by bringing it into direct contact
with the Light of the Spirit."

or chain around the neck. This sealed locket is worn inside
the clothing an contains the calligraphy (kanji) for "Light."
serves to magnify the energy of Johrei, making it more available. In addition,
every Johrei center contains a dedicated Scroll that emanates very high vibrations
and acts as a focal point for that center. People do not worship the Scroll;
rather, they worship before it. To align themselves with its vibration, givers
bow to Spirit in front of the Scroll before giving Johrei. This also recognizes
the Law of Order in Johrei: divine energy comes from God and the individual simply
serves as a focus.
members are not "healers," they simply focus divine
purifying energy during a Johrei session. Members are not authorized

happens during a Johrei session?
a typical Johrei session, you will be invited to sit comfortably facing the Johrei
member, who will sit with his/her back to the Scroll. The member may ask you
if you are experiencing anything specific that you'd like him/her to concentrate
on. Before beginning, the member will put their hands together, bow their head,
and say a silent prayer asking that the energy serve you for the greatest good.
You may join the member in focusing the energy in a silent prayer to open yourself
to the universal energy for purification of spirit, mind, and body, or you may
simply take this time to center yourself. You need not think about
anything special while receiving Johrei, however it helps
to maintain a quiet mind if possible, visualizing spiritual light
as it is focused for your benefit. Most receivers also find
that closing their eyes during the session helps in maintaining a quiet mind.
Generally, Johrei is given without speaking, but if you have a question or concern
during a session, please speak up.
touching you, the Johrei member will raise one hand and direct
the energy towards your forehead, head, throat, chest, and
abdomen from the front, for five to ten minutes. You will then be asked
to face the opposite direction for about another fifteen minutes.
The energy will be directed toward the back of your head, your
shoulders, your kidneys, and several areas along your spine.
These are called the vital points of Johrei. They act as distribution
centers for your spiritual and physical bodies. You may feel
warmth, tingling, or other sensations as Johrei is given to
you, or you may simply feel a sense of spreading relaxation
or peacefulness. You will then be asked to face the front once
again, and here you can join the Johrei giver in a final silent
prayer of gratitude.
member will then bow again before the Scroll. You may do the
same or sit quietly and assess your feelings if you like.
invited to ask any questions you may have and to return to the
Center as often as you desire. You will never be pressured to
learn about Johrei or to join the organization.
If you are new to Johrei, it is not necessary for you to bow
before the Scroll or perform any action that is unfamiliar or uncomfortable.
In fact, you need not even believe in God for Johrei to benefit you. You may
want to view Johrei as the simple transfer of universal energy for your well-being.
We merely ask that you respect our customs while at the center.
does Johrei do?
energy, or the divine light, when focused on the spiritual body
of an individual, dispels "spiritual clouds" or negativity
from the spiritual body. This in turn raises the spiritual vibration,
thereby causing reactions in the spiritual, mental, and physical
bodies. Through the process of Johrei, the spirit is uplifted
and the divine nature unfolds itself more and more, causing the
finest spiritual qualities of the individual to come to the fore.

Many plants which have been weakened from insect blights, extremes
of weather, or other destructive forces have been revived through
Johrei, and the quality of the soil itself has been improved.
When the seeds and the soil have become sufficiently purified,
a considerable improvement is seen in the quality and quantity
of crops too. There are also numerous cases of Johrei helping
sick or injured animals.
