Utilization of Supernormal Abilities
In order to take part in the Fa-rectification, Dafa disciples directly send forth righteous thoughts with supernormal abilities--a special phenomenon in this special historical period. This is a honor and it's also left as a reference for the future universe. In the process of using supernormal abilities to eliminate the evil, however, some erratic situations frequently occur, especially for those practitioners who cannot see through their Celestial Eye. These practitioners don't know what forms their supernormal abilities take. Since they don't know the effects in other dimensions, their being "unable to see" has become an obstruction. I would like to discuss some of my experiences and realizations, so if something is wrong, please point it out.
1. Faith in Dafa is the Key for Using Supernormal Abilities to Eliminate Evil
"Actually, every Dafa disciple has abilities. It's just that the abilities do not manifest in the surface dimension, so they think that they don't have supernormal abilities."("Dafa Disciples' Righteous Thoughts are Powerful")
As I understand it, when Teacher told us the relationship between body and mind, he was also entirely breaking the shell of our human bodies. Because the form of Dafa's cultivation breaks through from the most microscopic origin towards the surface, the surface body will be totally changed in the end. Supernormal abilities take effect on our cultivated side at the microscopic level. Therefore, the effect of joining together mind and body all depend on one's faith in the Fa. Such faith comes from your xinxing foundation, which develops through strict cultivation.
From the Fa, I realized that we need to maintain a pure and righteous state of mind while using supernormal abilities. In addition, Teacher is strengthening us and Dafa is harmonizing our power. The key to eliminating evil by using righteous thoughts is that our human side obeys (but doesn't restrain) our cultivated side which has a firm belief in the Fa and the faithfulness to resolutely safeguard the Fa. Mixing in human concepts is a big hindrance. When I discovered that a person was sent to our practice site to monitor us, I sent out righteous thoughts to get rid of the evil. Afterwards, that person never came again. Although I couldn't see anything clearly, I have never doubted my supernormal abilities cultivated through Dafa; I could feel Master Li strengthening my power while eliminating the evil.
2. Keep a Pure and Calm Mind
"Incorrect thoughts--such as fearing the evil, wavering in your thoughts when you use your supernormal abilities, or doubting whether they will work--can affect or interfere with the outcome of the supernormal abilities." ("What Are Supernormal Abilities")
When sending forth righteous thoughts, many practitioners felt nervous, unstable, or even angry, which caused them to fall short of their goal. So why does a calm and peaceful mind have a better effect? I've realized that when the primordial spirits leave the body of practitioners with unlocked supernormal abilities, their main conscience (which is in other dimensions using its divine powers) would rarely be affected by our bodies in this dimension. On the other hand, it's different for practitioners whose supernormal abilities are locked. Their supernormal abilities in other dimensions are easily affected by our bodies in this dimension and are thus being restrained. The more ones human side is tranquil, the less negative effects this human side will have on the supernormal abilities. The more the divine side is free, the more likely divine powers will be used with ease. Conversely, raw particles such as feelings and emotions may affect the microscopic particles, thus interfering with supernormal abilities. The more pure and simple, the closer it is to and the more it's in accord with original nature.
3. Developing a Pure and Compassionate Field with Righteous Thoughts
"With your ever-increasing Gong potency, the energy scattered from the Gong in your body will also be quite powerful." (Zhuan Falun)
The energy field in the surface dimension is constructed from surface level particles. The size of the energy field is, therefore, all determined and supported by microscopic dimensions. The higher level you break through, the more you will assimilate to the nature of the universe, and the more powerful the energy field from your body will be. Therefore, under the effect of this field, you can restrict and influence everything without even using your mind. The Dafa disciples' energy cultivated from the Fa is a pure, righteous, and compassionate power.
In daily life, or in arranging and distributing Dafa materials and doing Dafa work, Dafa disciples carry their own energy and messages with them while the effect of this righteous thought-field is a natural state, that's to say a very natural state for ones original true self. Would divine beings need to think of what time to send forth righteous thoughts? In practicing cultivation, we continuously improve and strengthen our energy fields and all the places we have been will have Buddha-light illuminating everywhere. This is eradicating the evil.
Master Li said, "The effect you have had in eliminating the evil with righteous thoughts has been truly significant. A great number of evil beings have been wiped out, and some have been partially wiped out. This has knocked the life out of them, has eradicated the evil in many dimensions not yet reached by the Fa-rectification, and has had the effect of eliminating and frightening the evil persons." ("The Effects of Righteous Thoughts")
Using supernormal abilities to eradicate the evil is definitely an important aspect of Fa-rectification for Dafa disciples. I want to help beings assimilate to the Fa, validate and safeguard the Fa, and become mature in cultivation during the Fa-rectification--may we all move towards consummation.
