Encounters While Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts
(Minghui.org) I started learning how to practice Falun Dafa from my father earlier this year.
On May 13, I got up early to practice the first four exercises, before sitting down with my father to send righteous thoughts for an hour and a half. Within the first half an hour, my legs began to hurt and my right hand began to tremble.
My father noticed my condition and told me, “This is caused by interference from the evil spirits and rotten ghosts from other dimensions. Disintegrate them with strong righteous thoughts!” My father continued encouragingly, “Today is World Falun Dafa Day and also Master's birthday. Cultivating to the best of our abilities is the best birthday present we can give to Master.” My father’s words strengthened my determination to persevere.
By the time an hour had passed, my legs were badly hurting and my hands, which were in the lotus position, were violently shaking. My father noticed me trembling and advised, “In cases of very strong interference from evil spirits, you can ask Master for help to disintegrate them.”
Amazingly, my hands stopped trembling soon after I sent a silent request to Master for help. However the evil spirits refused to admit defeat and increased the level of interference. Within half a minute, my hands began trembling so severely that I had difficulty keeping my palms and fingers together.
With my father’s encouragement, I continued asking Master for help while sending righteous thoughts. In the midst of this, I saw a large number of people sitting in the lotus position observing me gravely. I also heard a pitiful voice, calling my name and begging me not to continue sending forth righteous thoughts.
I managed to persevere until the entire hour and a half hour had passed. At that point, my hand suddenly stopped trembling, the pain in my legs receded and Master suddenly appeared before my eyes, happily calling out my name before exclaiming, “That was wonderful!”
Master proceeded to open my celestial ears and eyes, allowing me to see and hear scenes in other dimensions. Master also strengthened my ability to eliminate evil beings and cleansed my body. From then on, I began encountering xinxing tests while practicing the sitting meditation.
Once, while in the sitting meditation, I was lifted to a very high level where I saw the dazzling sight of Master smiling while sitting on a lotus flower. Just as I was surveying the scene delightedly, I was suddenly pulled down to stand before a tall and mighty god. This god told me, “Come and learn from me. I am so tall and powerful that it is certain I follow the righteous way.” I immediately felt something amiss and recalled Master’s teachings,
“One day you may suddenly see a large, tall immortal. He gives you a few complimentary words and teaches you something. If you accept it, your gong will be messed up.” (Zhuan Falun)
With this in mind, I told the evil being, “I will not learn from you. I will only cultivate Falun Dafa. Don’t think you can intimidate me with your size. Once my supernatural powers manifest, I’ll definitely be larger than you.”
Just as these words left my mouth, I suddenly became as big as the universe. That evil being was even smaller than a cell! At this point, Master appeared in front of me, laughing happily.
Yet another time while sitting in meditation, three beautiful girls materialized before my eyes and began to dance. I immediately recalled Master’s teachings,
“I’m not an ordinary person. I’m a practitioner. You shouldn’t treat me this way, for I’m a Falun Dafa practitioner.” (Zhuan Falun)
In an instant, the three beautiful women turned into scary demons and advanced towards me threateningly. I remained unmoved and thought firmly, “I am a Dafa practitioner. I am not afraid of you.” At this point, one of the demons attempted to strike my head with his stick, though his attack was stopped by an invisible force. I knew this was a sign of Master’s protection. As the demons were relentless in their attempts to cause harm, I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate them. In response, a gap filled with fire suddenly cracked open in the ground. The three demons fell into the pit of fire and were instantly turned into ashes! On seeing this, I immediately burst into tears.
After my celestial eye was opened, I encountered tribulations each time I entered the sitting meditation. A firm righteous mind has helped me to overcome each tribulation encountered. Fortunately, I was granted the opportunity to become a Dafa practitioner. I am grateful to Master for purifying my body, strengthening my righteous thoughts and for arranging a smooth cultivation path!
