Elderly Practitioner Recovers from Pancreatitis in Eleven Days
(Minghui.org) A fellow practitioner of mine, a 68-year-old housewife, started practicing Falun Gong in 1997. She had suffered in the past from many ailments, including rheumatism, headaches, gynecological and stomach problems, hypotension, and anemia. They all went away after she began practicing. She read Zhuan Falun, along with other books and articles by Master.
She would like share how she passed the test of sickness karma in eleven days.
“One day, I had a pain in my chest when I was at a group Fa-study, but I continued to study the Fa with the other practitioners. That night, it got worse, and I also felt hot around my chest.
The next day, although the pain in my chest was sharp, like I was being burned, I still studied the Fa as usual, made calls to tell people the facts about Falun Gong, and went out to distribute informational materials.
On the third day, the pain worsened. In the morning, I still made my phone calls and gave some materials to fellow practitioners. But by the afternoon I wasn't able to endure it, so I called other practitioners for help. At 4:00 p.m., two practitioners came to send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the sickness karma. I looked inside and found an attachment to sentimentality. Moreover, I had another obvious attachment, to fear, as I always hid my Dafa books and materials at home.
At around 5:00 p.m., I felt a little better and they left. But at 8:00 p.m., the pain suddenly became acute. My husband, a non-practitioner, took me to a hospital to be tested. I had an ultrasound, urine analysis, and blood tests.
The doctor said I had pancreatitis, which was caused by calculus in the bile duct moving into the pancreatic duct.
The doctor said I needed to be hospitalized at once. According to him, it was a fatal condition for an older woman, and that I should be prepared for big medical bills. He said some patients did not recover even after spending thousands of yuan on treatments.
I kept sending forth righteous thoughts to deny the old force's arrangement. I said to myself, “It's impossible! Was I actually cultivating for these ten years?” With this righteous thought, I felt the pain suddenly lessen. I said to the doctor, “I won't be hospitalized! I'm going home.” But he didn't agree with me.
A fellow practitioner showed up promptly. She said, “This is all caused by the evil factors. We do not acknowledge it, as we are being cared for by our Master. We just believe in the Fa and Master. We don't worry about anything else. Let's send forth righteous thoughts!” When the doctor asked us to pay 2000 yuan in advance to reserve a hospital bed, the fellow practitioner said, “She isn't ready. Let her talk about it with her family.” We told him that we didn't have enough money, so the doctor suggested we borrow some.
To comfort my anxious husband, the fellow practitioner said, “Don't worry! Look! She can speak clearly and walk without a problem. Nothing will happen! Let's just go home and have a good rest.” My husband calmed down, and we left the hospital.
When we got home at 11:30 p.m., I asked my husband not to turn on the lights and wake up our kids. The fellow practitioner advised him to rest and said that she would stay with me.
We sent forth righteous thoughts at midnight, ate something, and then recited the Fa:
"Gong is the Law, and the Law is gong, for mind itself is matter." (“Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Houston”)
“If what arises is a righteous thought, and you take the position that all of this is false, that it’s the old forces meddling, and you remind yourself of how long you’ve cultivated Dafa for and that no such thing is possible, if that thought truly comes from within, instantly the problem will vanish.” (“Fa Teaching Given at the 2010 New York Fa Conference”)
“All beings in the cosmos are repositioning themselves. Humans aren’t worthy of testing this Fa, and neither are Gods. Whoever touches it commits a sin. They’ve seen all of this as well.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Great Lakes Fa Conference in North America”)
“For a cultivator, looking within is a magical tool.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2009 Washington DC International Fa Conference”)
“'I'm Li Hongzhi's disciple, I don't want other arrangements or acknowledge them'--then they won't dare to do that. So it can all be resolved. When you can really do that, not just saying it but putting it into action, Master will definitely stand up for you.” (“Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference”)
We kept reciting the Fa and did not give the old forces any loopholes to exploit.
We sent forth righteous thoughts every hour on the hour, and at the same time, recited the Fa about “Benevolent Resolutions” to clear up my field.
I drank a lot of water throughout the night. I later had hiccups and bloody urine.
When I washed my face at 3:40 a.m., and burned incense in front of Master’s photo, I noticed that Master was smiling at me. Then I said, “I'm sorry! I brought a lot of troubles to you!” The other practitioner said, “Ask Master to strengthen our righteous thoughts to resolve the persecution!”
We joined group excises at 3:50 a.m., and sent righteous thoughts at 6:00 a.m. I then napped for about an hour. My fellow practitioner kept sending forth righteous thoughts for me.
At 8:00 a.m. on the fourth day, I ate some porridge and drank water on and off. At 3:00 p.m. I still had bloody urine and started to have a fever. A big blister formed on my lip. We continued to study the Fa and send forth righteous thoughts. I ate as much as I could.
On the fifth day, we studied a chapter of Zhuan Falun together in the morning, then the fellow practitioner left at noon. I attended the group Fa-study that afternoon.
On the sixth day, my condition improved, and I was able to eat and sleep normally.
I had recovered completely by the eleventh day.
