Breaking Through Tribulations to Join Group Fa Study
(Minghui.org) I only learned that there were Fa study groups several years after I started practicing Falun Dafa. I found a group near me with the help of an elderly practitioner.
My husband was interfered with and created three tribulations to stop me from going to group Fa study. I was able to break through them all.
The first occurrence was when my husband sat on a chair at the door and would not let me leave the house. As I approached the door, he stood up, dragged me to the living room, and pushed me onto the couch. When I tried to stand up, he pushed me again and hit my arm.
I was a little upset, couldn't maintain my xinxing, and yelled, “Why did you hit me?” He said, “I hit you because you are stubborn.”
I still thought I was dealing with my husband so I lightly hit him back. He then hit my head very hard, which made me a little dizzy. He pressed me to the floor, kicked me, and almost stepped on my face.
I calmed down and looked at him. His face was distorted and yellow in color, his eyeballs protruded, his lips were shaking, and he was breathing hard. He looked very ugly.
I immediately realized that this was not my husband, who loves me a lot. My husband is very gentle, good looking, and his eyes don't protrude. I realized that he was being manipulated by a demon. It possessed his body to test my determination to improve and be diligent, and to eliminate my sentimentality toward my husband.
I looked inside and saw that I had a competitive mentality and sentimentality toward my husband. These were used by the demons to persecute me. I thought that I shouldn't face my husband as a soft and fragile wife at this moment. I am a Dafa practitioner and I must be serious and firm. I must also maintain my xinxing.
“In practicing cultivation of our school, you will not have any problems as long as you can conduct your xinxing well, since one righteous mind can subdue one hundred evils.”(Zhuan Falun)
“Under trying circumstances of any type, you must all keep steady in thought. Just by staying unaffected you will be able to handle all situations.” (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in the Midwest-U.S.)
I thought: “I will attend Fa study. My will of being diligent hasn't changed.” I was no longer angry or yelling at my husband.
I said to him with a calm, but determined voice, “Get away from here. I'm going to study the Fa with the group. Master tells me to join the group Fa study. How dare you try to stop me. Aren't you afraid of retribution?”
I then slowly but firmly walked toward the door. I was not afraid that he would hit me. He pushed me back and I walked to the door again. He pushed me to the floor. I got right back up and calmly walked toward the door. I was not angry and ordered him to move away.
Just like that, he said: “I can't do this anymore. I'm done. I've been sitting here for four hours. I've fought you for four hours. I'm done. I won't try to stop you anymore. I can't. Go ahead. Go ahead and go to Fa study.” Just like that, the demons that were manipulating him were eliminated.
Another time, he tried to stop me again. He dragged me and hit me and wouldn't let me go out. I knelt in front of Master's photo and said, “Master, I want to join the group to study the Fa.” Tears filled my eyes. Then I heard a voice say, “Go ahead.”
I immediately got up and said to my husband, “I'm about to go. I'm going to Fa study.” My husband was like a completely different person from how he was a moment before and very gently said, “Okay.”
Eliminating Interference with Strong Righteous Thoughts
Sometimes the demons saw that forceful ways didn't work so they would manipulate my husband to act in a softer way. He held me and spoke sweet words to try to keep me at home. That was when it was most difficult to recognize that demons were causing his behavior but when I did I sent strong righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil in another dimension. I kindly told him that Master is with us and that I saw in a dream that Master was very worried about my situation. My husband was touched and let me go.
Another time, when I was studying Zhuan Falun, my husband took it away from me, pulled the book apart, and threw it in the trash can. I was very hurt. I instantly picked up the book and apologized to Master. I strongly warned my husband about the horrible consequences of such actions and told him to repent immediately. Even though he wouldn't admit that he had done wrong, he took the book and sewed it back together.
That night, I looked inside to see why he would grab my book when I was studying the Fa. I realized that I had argued with him while studying the Fa. Doing that was disrespectful to Master and the Fa, and it showed a strong attachment of competitiveness. An evil demon took advantage of my shortcomings and manipulated my husband to have both of us be disrespectful toward Master and the Fa. How evil it was.
I fell asleep in front of Master's picture after reading the book. In a dream I saw a fat, evil female coming towards me. I was not afraid. I stood up and saw that my body was several times larger than hers. I quickly pinned her to the ground and she became very small.
Then I saw a huge hand lifting away a demon that looked like a leather pouch. It seemed to be the demon who possessed my husband when he wouldn't let me study the Fa. Then I saw a young man about 20 years old, floating in the air sitting in the lotus position.
From then on, my husband no longer tried to stop me from going to group Fa study. As soon as I looked inside to correct myself, Master helped me to eliminate the demons that had been affecting my husband.
I was finally able to break through after three tribulations. Master saw my determination to study the Fa and would no longer allow the demons to interfere with me.
