[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] Witnessing Miracles from Practicing Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am a 50-year old practitioner of Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong. Like many practitioners, I have experienced extraordinary events on my path of cultivation. To celebrate World Falun Dafa Day, May 13, I would like to share some of them to illustrate Dafa’s supernormal ability.
Incredible Journey of Becoming a Dafa Practitioner
I was on maternity leave in 1997. One day, my whole family was invited to my sister's home. My younger brother took a book from the bookcase. After reading it for a while, he left the book on a bed near me. Out of curiosity, I picked up the book and opened it.
On the first page was a photo of a solemn, amiable man sitting in the lotus position and showing hand signs. Gazing at him for a long while, I was deeply and incomprehensibly moved. Endless respect and homage arose in my heart. I blurted out, “It’s wonderful! This is what I’ve been looking for! I want to learn it!”
“Sure, you always want to learn everything, but it only lasts a short while,” my husband laughed.
I asked my brother-in-law where to buy the book. He said he did not know and that someone had given it to him.
I did not go home that day. I stayed up the whole night at my sister's home and finished reading the book. When I was halfway through, I started bleeding from my left nostril. I had had this problem for a long time. I felt comfortable after the bleeding stopped. It was clear that Master purified my body at that time.
On my way home the next morning, I thought it would be nice if I could own this book. I wished that someone would tell me where I could buy it.
As soon as I sat down on the bus, I saw a seated woman holding a book up high. I raised my head and looked at her again. Wow! I could not believe it! It was Zhuan Falun! I was stunned and could not believe this was real. How fortunate I was!
I went over to her and asked, “Auntie, where can I buy this book? I would like to have one.”
She said, “It’s very good that you really want to have one. Come with me after we get off the bus.”
We got off at the same stop. Actually, we lived in the same large courtyard. She told me where I could get the book and where I could learn Falun Gong.
I finally got my wish and became a Dafa practitioner.
Master, the founder of Falun Gong, said:
“Perhaps everyone has heard this statement in Buddhism, 'When one’s Buddha-nature emerges, it will shake the World of Ten Directions.' Whoever sees it will come to give a hand and help this person out unconditionally. In providing salvation to humankind, the Buddha School does not attach any condition or seek returns, and it will help unconditionally. Accordingly, we can do many things for students.” (Zhuan Falun)
Although this event occurred many years ago, I am still moved by it. I would not believe it if it had happened to someone else. But it really happened to me.
The Fa that Master has taught us is real and true. I thus decided to practice Dafa diligently.
My Cultivation Experiences
A few days later, I joined other practitioners in Montenegro in a public event. We did the first four exercises in front of a temple. During the second exercise, the Falun Standing Stance, I sensed a flower continuously blossoming, layer by layer, inside my forehead. The scene was as beautiful as Master had told us. Master was opening my Celestial Eye.
“After a period of cultivation, one will discover that it gradually begins to be bright inside the forehead, and then it turns red. At this time, it will blossom like the flowers seen on television or in a movie in which the flowers blossom in a second. Such scenes will appear. The red color will start out flat, and then it will suddenly stand out in the middle and turn constantly.” (Zhuan Falun)
As I studied the Fa more, I could often see a small Falun (Law Wheel) accompanying me as I read Zhuan Falun. The Falun was gold in the center and had various colors on the edge. Sometimes, when I studied the Fa, each word on the page turned into a circle that rotated slowly and orderly, and then they formed a large stack of circles. Sometimes, I could see Master's Fashen extending to the back...
Once, I fell asleep while studying the Fa. At the moment I woke up, I saw a colossal universe instead of words in the book. This universe included mountains, lakes, and oceans. But the image disappeared when I tried to look at it more closely.
My husband came home one day when I was reading the book in the living room. He asked, “It’s so dark already. Why didn't you turn on the light? What are you doing?”
“Reading,” I said.
“Can you see the words?” he asked.
I said, “Yes. Every word in the book glows with golden light. I can see them clearly. Believe me. This is a heavenly book.”
I often felt a warm current spiraling and slowly flowing down from the top of my head. At around 2 a.m, one day, as soon as I lied down, I felt a strong energy flow coming down from my head. I knew that Master was doing guanding on me to purify my body. I was deeply moved and cried uncontrollably.
Whenever I meditate, I always feel a strong electric current, heat flow, and numbness in my two palms. As a result, my palms would become stiff as if they were held by a strong magnet. One time, my husband and I made the bed together after I finished meditating. When my hand accidentally touched his, he yelped and quickly pulled his hand back. I asked if he had been shocked by the current. He just calmly looked at me with a smile. I could tell that he was gradually gaining a new attitude toward Dafa.
Dafa Expands My Wisdom
I was computer illiterate before taking up cultivation. But Dafa expanded my wisdom. A couple of years ago, another practitioner helped me buy a used laptop and taught me how to use a computer and access the internet. Now, I can skillfully upload and download information online. When I typed in front of the computer, my husband always made fun of me and said, “Wow! You can use a computer to type now! You even didn't know how to use a cell phone.”
Years ago, our old computer was very noisy. My husband had twice hired a repairman to fix it, but the problem remained. I opened up the computer case and noticed that the fan was covered in layers of dust. I carefully removed the dust with toothpicks and tweezers. The computer no longer made a noise. My husband was ecstatic. He did not expect that a person like me was able to fix the problem.
Our washing machine broke down a few years ago. I took the washer apart and re-assembled it but didn't have a chance to put the case back on. I was busy making dinner and asked my husband to finish the job when he came home. “I don’t know how,” he said. “You are so brave to do it. Why don't we get someone to repair it?” When the washer worked again, he thought it was unbelievable.
The old water pipe under the kitchen sink started to leak one day. My husband replaced it with new parts, but it still leaked. He tried repeatedly and finally gave up. After he left, I took off the pipe, cleaned it, and wrapped it in plumber’s tape. It worked. When I told my husband that the leak was gone, he said, “I admire you!”
In addition to being good and healthy people, Dafa practitioners also look younger than their age. On one occasion, I attended a meeting at my daughter's high school parent association. The next day, a classmate asked her, “Was the person at the meeting yesterday your older sister?” My daughter laughed, “What’s wrong with you? She’s my mom!”
When we renovated our house, I went out with my husband to buy some materials. People on the street gave us strange glances from time to time. I quickly looked at myself and my husband and did not see anything abnormal. As we checked out the materials, the owner whispered to me, “Is he your old boss or someone related to you?” When I told her that he was my husband, her eyes went wide.
Master Saved Me from Danger
As I left my sister's home one winter day, when I was ready to cross the street, I suddenly felt someone come up and hold me tightly. I wondered who it was. When I looked around, I did not see anyone just a big truck that had grazed me. The truck had run over my foot and left a tire mark on my shoes.
I immediately realized it was merciful Master who protected me using his own body. If it were not for Master, the consequences would have been bad. Even today, I still cannot find the words to express my gratitude to Master.
Dafa Benefits My Whole Family
Master said in Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia, “with one person practicing, the whole family benefits.”
When my husband went on a business trip to Changqingdao, Liaoning Province, a few years ago, the small van he was in collided head-on with a heavy truck. The van was mangled, but my husband was not seriously injured even though he was in a front seat. After a few days in the hospital, he was discharged to recuperate at home and fully recovered. A police officer was surprised that my husband survived. He said, “This section of road is very strange. No one has ever survived an accident here. It really is a miracle! Your family must be blessed by Gods!”
My daughter was abducted from a bus station one winter evening three years ago. She was taken to a warehouse, where several pretty young girls had been locked up. My daughter suggested using their socks to protect their hands and worked together to push open the gate. All of them were able to escape.
Both my husband and daughter believe in Dafa and have quit the Chinese Communist Party and its organizations because of its persecution of Dafa. I believe they were blessed as a result. Thank you, compassionate Master, for saving my family. Thank you, Falun Dafa, for keeping our family whole!
