Faith in Dafa Brings Miracles
(Minghui.org) After a major car accident I was able to heal completely in less than 20 days. I believe this occurred as a result of my diligent cultivation and faith in Master and Falun Dafa. I enlightened to the understanding that when practitioners have solid faith in Master and Dafa, they are able to lay aside all conventional notions, and completely deny arrangements by the old forces. When we strive to thoroughly cultivate every thought of ours, the miracles of Dafa will be demonstrated. I wish to share my experiences in the following story.
Surviving a Major Car Accident
After distributing Shen Yun Performing Arts brochures in a neighborhood, five of us practitioners prepared to go to the next neighborhood to distribute more brochures. At a crossroad, a large Jeep hit our vehicle in the right rear door where I was sitting. Immediately, I experienced extreme pain in my right leg and my chest felt like exploding. I was holding my chest, unable to speak. At that moment, I called out in my heart, “Master save me! Master save me!” Master’s teaching appeared in my mind right at that time:
“When I was teaching the Fa and the practice in Taiyuan, there was a practitioner over fifty years old. She and her spouse had come to attend my lectures. When they walked into the middle of the street, a car drove by very fast, and its rearview mirror caught the elderly lady’s clothes. With her clothes caught by the car, the lady was dragged for a distance of over ten meters and brought down to the ground. The car stopped after moving beyond twenty meters. The driver was very upset after getting out of the car: 'Hey, you weren’t watching where you were walking.' Nowadays, people behave this way and will first of all avoid responsibility upon coming across a problem, regardless of whether they are at fault. The passengers inside the car said: 'Find out how badly the lady was hit. Let’s take her to a hospital.' The driver came to his senses and rushed to say: 'How is everything, ma’am? Are you hurt? Let’s go to a hospital and take a look.' This practitioner slowly got up from the ground and said: 'There’s nothing wrong. You can leave.' She brushed off the dirt on her clothes and left with her husband.” (Lecture Four in Zhuan Falun)
The Jeep driver came to our car and asked how I was. I told him sincerely that I was fine. However, the car had spun 180 degrees and was now on the opposite side of the road. We could not open the rear door on the right since there was a huge dent. The trunk was also stuck, and the right rear wheel was about to come off. The car was no longer drivable. The Jeep’s bumper was also broken off.
The practitioner who sat next to me also had chest pain, and his nose was bleeding. The other three practitioners were fine. My head also hurt after the accident. However, without Master’s protection, our car would have been totaled, and I probably would have died. Master helped to keep the damage to a minimum. We all felt very grateful for Master and Dafa.
Searching Inward for the Cause of the Accident
The violent collision caused extreme pain in my neck and down my entire body. Severe swelling made it difficult to use my hands. It was hard for me to get up and walk, and it was even more difficult for me to lie down. My body felt stiff and heavy, like an iron plate. My movements became very slow. I completely denied the old forces' arrangements, and was very calm the entire time. Those who did not know about the accident could not even tell what I was going through. I firmly believed that Dafa was omnipotent, and that if I had faith in Master and Dafa and completely denied the old forces' arrangements, miracles would occur.
I searched inside and asked what had caused the accident to happen. I saw that I had slacked off in Fa-study and practicing the five exercises. Sometimes, I could not finish reading one lecture a day, and I had not regarded Fa-study as a priority. Since becoming a Dafa disciple more than a dozen years ago, I had pledged to study at least one lecture and do all five exercises each day. Since I lacked sufficient Fa-study, some of my attachments surfaced, such as a bad temper, competitiveness, showing off, trying to dominate others, and stubbornness. I realized that all those attachments were very dangerous, yet I had failed to closely watch my thoughts. In the past, as soon as I got into a car, I would recite “Lun Yu”, and send forth righteous thoughts. However, in the days before the accident, I chatted with others casually, and slacked off in my cultivation. Thus, the old forces took advantage of my loopholes to persecute me.
Vowing to Walk My Path Well
Even though I had loopholes, I knew Dafa would help rectify me, that Master would take care of me, and that no other beings could interfere and persecute me. I vowed to only walk on the path arranged by Master. At this crucial moment, I should spend more time on Fa study, do the exercises, and sending forth righteous thoughts. I should not give any opportunities to the old forces.
That afternoon, I went to a fellow practitioner’s residence, and in spite of the searing pain in my right leg, I crossed my legs and began to meditate. Then we sent forth righteous thoughts, and studied one lecture of the Fa. I kept my legs crossed the entire time. In the evening, my body hurt so badly that I could not lie down. I asked my child to help hold my head and neck so that I could move my body a little bit. My cheek was very painful, so it was impossible for me to sleep. I listened to Master’s lectures until 2:00 a.m.
I got up the next morning at 3:45 a.m. to send forth righteous thoughts, and do the exercises. I moved very slowly and could not stretch very much. The bones in my shoulders made cracking sounds, and every movement was very difficult. I made sure that I did every movement accurately. After that, my body felt relaxed and not as painful.
Denying the Old Forces' Arrangements
The next day we were to gather as a group to send forth righteous thoughts for the Shen Yun Performing Arts show. I told my child to take me to the group because I did not want to miss it. The old forces planned to trap me inside my home, but I absolutely denied their arrangement. I was not scared at all when the accident happened. However, when I saw a soccer ball size bruise on my chest the next day, and particularly the darker color in the area of my heart, I began to feel afraid. Before cultivating in Dafa, I had experienced symptoms of heart disease, such as palpitations, shortness of breath, arrhythmia, and angina. Now, suddenly, all these symptoms recurred. The old forces had indeed come to take my life this time!
I knew I must spend more time studying the Fa, doing the exercises and sending forth righteous thoughts. My body must heal fast. During those days, I regained the condition of “...always cultivating as if you were just starting...” (“Fa Teaching at the 2009 Greater New York International Fa Conference”) I witnessed Master’s protection, and miracles of Dafa. I could feel strong energy flow through my body. When I practiced the exercises, my body gradually melted like ice. I could see changes in my body every day. Some fellow practitioners told me several times that it would take me months to heal, but I told them that since I am a Dafa disciple, I was different from ordinary people because I had Master to protect me. Dafa is omnipotent. I absolutely denied the old forces' arrangements.
The Miraculous Healing of Dafa
I thought that I could help with household chores on the fifth day. After studying the Fa, I picked up the cutting knife and found that I could cut vegetables. Although I could only move slowly, and my body still hurt, I was happy that I could make some simple meals in such a short period of time. I knew that Master helped me, so I said out loud, “Thank you Master!” On the seventh day, I told myself that any symptoms that still lingered in my body were not mine. I completely denied all the false symptoms I experienced, and desired to return to my original and best condition. Ignoring the pain, I repeatedly recited Master’s Fa on the topic of benevolent resolutions.
The next morning, I felt very refreshed and light, as if I had shed a heavy shell. Master had helped me eliminate karma. My body had completely healed in less than 20 days. I have broken through a test of life and death. Thank you revered Master! Heshi!
