The Importance of Cleansing One's Own Field
(Minghui.org) I called my 79-year-old mother one morning. She sounded odd on the phone. I went to her house. Instead of coming out to greet me as she always did, she stayed in bed quietly.
She had a fever and couldn't sit up. Her face was swollen, and she looked older than usual. She couldn't stay focused to study the Fa and hadn't done the exercises for three days. I believed that my mother was in real trouble this time because she always was able to hold her righteous thoughts and do the exercises no matter what happened to her physical body.
I sent righteous thoughts for her that afternoon. She improved somewhat but was back to the same way that night. I had my brother find other practitioners to come and help send righteous thoughts.
One came, and we sent righteous thoughts for an hour. My mother was able to sit up, and her complexion got rosier. Another practitioner came, and the three of us sent righteous thoughts for another hour. My mother improved even more. By the next morning, my mother's condition had stabilized.
That night, my mother's condition worsened again. She was feverish and short of breath. The next morning, I had another two practitioners come to send righteous thoughts for two hours. My mother got well as a result. That afternoon, another practitioner came and sent righteous thoughts for two hours. The day after, three more practitioners joined. All of us sent out strong righteous thoughts. My mother was well after that.
One of the practitioners could see in other dimensions. He said that my mother's field was filled with evil. I knew it because since 2006 I hadn't seen my mother sending righteous thoughts to cleanse her own field. She didn't listen to my warnings and told me that she didn't feel comfortable sitting still for that long to cleanse her dimension. I knew that it was the evil in her dimension interfering with her physical body to make her feel that way.
I want to use my mother's story to remind everyone never to make the same mistake. We should listen to Master and cleanse our own fields. We should not allow evil to interfere or cause problems for us and others in saving people.
I also want to express my deepest gratitude to the practitioners who helped send righteous thoughts for my mother. I was very moved by their selflessness and prompt availability. They truly did what Master says in “Teaching the Fa at the Washington, D.C. Fa Conference,”
“The next person's things are your things, and your things are his things.”
