Wondrous Things Happen to a True Practitioner
(Clearwisdom.net) Since I began to practice Falun Dafa, many wonderful things have happened to me. I had many different illnesses before and I suffered for a long time. I had tried other qigong practices, but they did not help me. After I began practicing Falun Gong, my illnesses disappeared without a trace. My experiences have shown me that as long as we believe in Master, believe in Dafa, and are truly cultivating, good things will happen along the way.
Cultivating in Falun Dafa, regaining a healthy body
I began practicing Falun Dafa on August 15, 1995. One year before, I saw the book Falun Gong on my colleague's desk, so I took a look through it. I liked the content; it was clear and clean. So I went to get a copy for myself. However, since I had practiced other qigong for many years and could not let go of them, it might not have been the right time for me yet.
Later, someone told me there would be a more comprehensive book published. After several months, I found the book. It was called Zhuan Falun, and it thoroughly explained what cultivation is. After I finished reading the book, I looked for an exercise site the next morning. That was August 15, 1995.
I had a gastro-duodenal ulcer since childhood, and I had stomach pain before each meal. I had to be hospitalized several times each year. After practicing Falun Gong for two years, the ulcer disappeared, and I have not relapsed since. Even when I was held in prison and was on a hunger strike to protest the persecution, my stomach never hurt.
Six months after I began practicing, my right ear began leaking water, pus, and then later blood. Since I did not read the Fa much, my xinxing level was low. I did not realize that the symptoms in my ear were a form of karma elimination. I could not handle the pain and went to a hospital. The doctor said, "You will be deaf if you do not start the treatment now." I received an injection. After that I told a practitioner about this, and after our discussion realized that only Falun Dafa can eliminate illness from the root and purify the body constantly; hospitals can only postpone an illness, and cannot remove the karma. It was likely that I would have the illness again in the future. After this realization, I began to study the Fa and exercise daily. My right ear continued leaking blood, and it was very painful. Soon my right ear was completely deaf. Shortly after that my left ear began leaking water, pus, and blood, and my hearing had sharply declined on the left side. Under such circumstances, would I still practice Falun Dafa? I never doubted Falun Dafa even a bit. I believed in the Fa, so I continued to study the Fa and exercise daily.
One day, when I practiced the second exercise, during the holding the wheel position in which the hands face the ears, I suddenly felt air come out of both ears. I did not pay attention to it and finished the exercise. Afterwards, both of my ears were open, and I had regained my hearing! My excitement and gratification was beyond words. The beginning of the deafness to regaining my hearing was a two year process. It was because my xinxing elevation was slow. From this I came to believe in Falun Dafa even more.
All of the illnesses that I had were gone within two years of practicing. In the last fifteen years of practicing, I have had no illnesses at all. I've never used a penny of my health insurance. We are so fortunate living in the era of Falun Dafa's spreading. It is most fortunate for one to be able to obtain the Fa. Master rescued me, cleansed my mind, and purified my body so that I could cultivate. I am so fortunate to be a cultivator, I will be a true cultivator and follow Master home.
Sending righteous thoughts and saving sentient beings
The Fa Master has taught is full of wonders. As long as we abide by the Fa and truly cultivate, there will be miracles along the way. Master granted us the gift of righteous thoughts, which is truly powerful.
With powerful righteous thoughts, I was able to visit a relative in prison
One day, I went to visit my relative, who was in prison for being a practitioner. The prison guard who handled registrations asked me, "Do you practice Falun Gong?" I said yes, and he asked again, "Do you still practice Falun Gong now?" I said, "Of course, it is such a good practice." He said, "We have rules. We will not let a Falun Gong practitioner visit." Another guard added, "Don't you know what kind of crime she committed? And you still practice Falun Gong?" I said, "She has been held for two years, why don't you tell me what kind of crime she has committed? What kind of crime is it to practice Falun Gong?"
The guard picked up a phone, "Come here, there is a Falun Gong person here, take him away." I immediately sent righteous thoughts, "Eliminate all evil factors behind him, the Fa rectifies the universe, the evil is completely eliminated." Another guard came, and I continued sending righteous thoughts. It was very pure, with no other thoughts in my mind, and no fear. He walked towards me and then changed directions, "He isn't doing anything right now, why should I arrest him? You may call the warden." He walked out.
I continued sending righteous thoughts. Soon, the guard who handled registrations called out, "Bring the Falun Gong practitioner out, her relative is here." He threatened me, saying that I had better watch what I said, and that the visit would be interrupted at any moment if he felt there was anything inappropriate. With righteous thoughts, they not only did not arrest me but let me visit my relative.
A big glass window separated me and the relative. My relative held a phone, and a female guard held another phone to listen in. I stared at the guard and thought, "Make her mind wander." I told my relative, "Remove your human thoughts and evil will naturally die out" ("Don't be Sad" from Hong Yin II). We discussed cultivation for half an hour, and by the time the guard awoke, we had finished talking. I learned that this was an example of how Falun Dafa practitioners can use their supernormal powers to handle prison guards.
Sending righteous thoughts corrects a tense situation
One day, after I purchased some fruit from a vendor, I handed him a piece of truth-clarifying material. I said to him, "This is Falun Dafa truth-clarification material, it will benefit you to read it." He took it and said, "How dare you still do this?" As I walked across the road, he was waving to a policeman seven or eights steps away. I sent righteous thoughts immediately, "Eliminate all evil factors behind him, the Fa rectifies the universe, the evil is completely eliminated." The vendor then looked down, got distracted, and began handling his fruit. The policeman came over and picked up the flyer. The policeman walked away with the flyer and began to read it. His head was turned away and I was able to walk away safely.
Sending righteous thoughts makes a police officer walk away
I handed a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party to a vendor after I had purchased some vegetables. He accepted it, but a man behind me suddenly snatched the book and said to me, "Did you give him this book? Where did it come from?" I immediately realized that he was a plainclothes police officer and tried to get the book back without success. I told him, "I picked it up on the road." I also began to send righteous thoughts, "Eliminate all evil factors behind him, the Fa rectifies the universe, the evil is completely eliminated." The policeman threw the book down and walked away as fast as he could.
During my cultivation, there have been numerous wonders along the way. When we truly cultivate, we will discover that when we reach the level of selflessness, and save sentient beings with strong righteous thoughts, our righteous thoughts are boundless and powerful. At that that moment, Master's Fashen and all the righteous gods in the universe will help us.
This is my individual understanding; please point out any shortcomings.
