Returning to Cultivation
Dafa Gives Me Back a Healthy Body
I am 60 years old and live in a small town. Life was difficult for me before I encountered Dafa.
My parents passed away when I was little, and growing up with just my sisters was hard. After I got married, my new life was not much better. My husband was a layabout and degenerate gambler. My child had health issues and got sick often. My own body was mess, too, and I suffered from many health problems.
One of my relatives introduced me to Falun Dafa to me a couple of years after it had been made public and was already very popular. After I read Zhuan Falun, Master began to cleanse my body. My head felt as if it were splitting open and I could hear my skull being scratched. I also couldn't stop running to the bathroom, where I passed clots and bloody urine.
Miraculously, all of my ailments were gone after a few days, including neurasthenia, headache, tinnitus, rhinitis, gastritis, pleurisy, arthritis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and lumbar hyperplasia. I could dry clothes with my hands and walk long distances again. My cold body became warm.
One morning while I was sleeping, I heard wind blowing on top of head. I opened my eyes and saw a big golden Falun rotating above my head. After than, I did my morning exercises every day. But I did not know much about studying the Fa.
After the persecution of Falun Gong began in July 1999, local officials and police officers came to my home and told me that Falun Gong was banned. They forced me to hand in my Dafa books and exercise music tapes, and sign a statement promising to give up the practice. Since I did not study the Fa well, I ended up doing the wrong thing. I regretted it very much.
Master Leads Practitioners to Me
However, Master did not give up on me. In the fall of 2005, when I was tending my stand in the market, a stranger approached me and asked me if I still practiced Dafa. I told him about my situation. He was a practitioner and later brought me Master's lectures and copies of Minghui Weekly.
Nine practitioners came to find me. None of them had known me before. They helped me to return to cultivation. I knew that Master had arranged for them to come to wake me up.
After falling behind for a long time, plus my lack of a solid foundation in cultivation, I had a lot of interference when I first returned. One night, I went out to distribute truth-clarification materials. It was so dark that I had a hard time finding people's doors. Another time when I went out to put up Dafa posters, the wind blew so hard that my posters were blown out of my hands.
I also encountered interference during Fa study: I could not read fast; the characters were blurry; thought karma made me curse or told me to give up the practice; and an evil spirit came to scare me or make me drowsy.
I used to have a possessing spirit before I cultivated Dafa. It came back to me during the time that I stopped practicing. Now it interfered with me during Fa study. In the meantime, many people in my village practiced a kind of qigong with possessing spirits. They also looked for me and wanted me to join them. I told them no.
I kept up with my Fa study, doing the exercises, and sending forth righteous thoughts. I tried my best to do all three things according to Master's requirements, even though the interference was still intense. After some time, Master removed my possessing spirit. I vomited some unusual stuff. I knew that I could not have made it without Master's compassionate protection.
After I returned to Dafa, Master encouraged me and showed me many miracles along the way. A practitioner delivered a new printer that he'd bought for us, and we assembled it. As the first page began to print, we could hear firecrackers going off outside for a very long time, even though that day was not a special holiday.
After we told an elderly woman in our village the facts about Dafa, she began to burn incense for Master and went around telling other people that Dafa was good. Now she is 101 years old and in good health. She was not hurt even a bit after falling down. Another elderly lady kept reciting, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” after I told her the facts about Dafa. Later, she saw Falun in her home and heavenly beings in ancient dress.
At another time, I ran into an elderly man near a reservoir, who intended to commit suicide. I told him about Dafa and that Dafa could save him. He knelt down and kowtowed to Master and decided to live.
When I saw the CCP flag hanging up somewhere, I used my righteous thoughts to eliminate it. It fell down shortly afterward. When I passed by the places where Falun Gong practitioners were persecuted, I sent forth my righteous thoughts to destroy them. I saw a door fall off the hinges.
I knew that all that I encountered were Master's hints and encouragement. I cannot express my gratitude to Master with words.
Now I cultivate myself daily and do my best to do the three things well. Since the beginning of this year, after I finish the exercises, I hear the sound of a gong from my MP3 player. I've enlightened that Master is telling us to follow the pace of Fa-rectification and not to fall behind.
I will follow Master's teachings, study the Fa well, and save more people. Thank you, Master, for your compassionate salvation.
