Miraculous Healing of Comminuted Fractures
(Minghui.org) I would like to share some of my personal experiences to validate the extraordinary power of Falun Dafa and to express my utmost reverence and respect to Master [Li Hongzhi].
The Comminuted Fracture of My Femur
I was hit by a convertible when I was crossing the street with my electric bike on August 16, 2018. The impact propelled me over two meters into the air; I landed on the ground, rolled over and hit my head on the pavement.
An egg-sized purple lump immediately appeared on the right side of my forehead. However, I was conscious and called for the driver of the car to pull me up. I stood on my left leg, but my right leg was weak and at an odd angle. I could not put my right foot on the ground no matter how hard I tried to unbend my leg.
My daughter and my son-in-law rushed to the scene and took me to the central hospital in the city for treatment.
My husband also rushed to the hospital to be with me. Enduring the excruciating pain in my back and right leg, I said to him weakly, “I'm alright. Everything will be fine when I get home to study the Fa and do the exercises. You'd better take me home quickly.”
He refused to and insisted that I follow the hospital's orders. The results showed that I had a comminuted fracture of my femur, with small bone fragments the size of a fingernail and other pieces the size of a palm.
Only then did I realize that my right thigh was so badly swollen that it looked like a water bucket: one piece of broken bone pushed up and out, my kneecap had fallen to the right side of my leg, and my calf was reduced to a lump of flesh with my right foot barely dangling at the end.
Doctors said that the break was so severe that they had to take out all the small shattered pieces of bone and fix the fractured big pieces in place with steel rods. They also said that because it broke near the ball of the femur, it could cause femoral head necrosis if an operation was not done in time, and I would become permanently disabled.
In fact, they said that even the operation could not guarantee my full recovery, but at the very least I could manage to handle my daily life. The doctors decided to put me on anti-inflammatory drugs for seven days before the operation. My family agreed with the decision.
I was too weak to speak at the time, but I said in my heart: “None of you can make decisions for me. I only listen to what Master Li says and only follow the arrangements Master has made for me. I'm in charge of my body. All these are false appearances. My leg in the other dimensions is perfectly fine.”
A little while later, a nurse came to put me on an IV. I refused and she left with the drip bottle. Not long after, I felt that someone was pressing my arm down, and when I opened my eyes, I saw two nurses by my side – one holding up the drip bottle, the other putting an elastic band on my arm. I knew they were trying to put me on a drip.
“What are you doing?” I asked.
“Giving you an injection,” one of them said. “The doctors said that a clot could be formed any time within 24 hours after a fracture without an IV, and when that happens, you could die in no time.”
The other nurse went on and said, “Your leg is so badly swollen. If you refuse to have an IV, your leg would become inflamed and that would be the end of it.”
I didn't say anything but used all my strength to pull my arm back from their grip. Getting nowhere, the two nurses left helplessly. I heard someone shouting outside the ward, “Tie her up if necessary!”
I was very firm and held onto one thought: None of you can do anything to me.
Master Brings Me Back from Death
At night, I experienced an unbearably excruciating pain all over my body. Suddenly I felt as if I were tied up by many ropes and that a heavy weight was pressing down on my chest. I could hardly breathe. I was shaking involuntarily and felt I had come to the extreme point of what I could handle. My clothes were drenched in sweat.
Before I lost consciousness, I reminded myself: I must not die. If I died, everyday people would form misunderstandings about Dafa. I have yet to fulfill all of my missions in this world.
I called in my heart: “Master! Help me......” Just at that moment, Master's words appeared in my mind,
“When you are truly able to let go of the thought of life and death, you can truly go there. This is the difference between a human and a God. If you can let go of life and death, you’re a God; if you can’t let go of life and death, you’re a human—this is the difference.” (“Teaching the Fa in New York City” from Lectures in the United States)
“And you shouldn't acknowledge them either. Do things well in an upright and dignified way, negate them, and strengthen your righteous thoughts some. 'I'm Li Hongzhi's disciple, I don't want other arrangements or acknowledge them'--then they won't dare to do that. So it can all be resolved.” (“Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference”)
Then I felt a strong wave of energy surge throughout my entire body.
I felt no fear in the face of death. I was very calm and felt that Master was right beside me. I sent out a strong righteous thought: I'm Master Li Hongzhi's disciple. My Master does not acknowledge any arrangements made by the old forces, and neither do I. I completely negate all arrangements by the old forces and eliminate all interference.
I kept reciting the verses for sending righteous thoughts; at the same time I measured my actions by the Fa principles and rectified every single thought I had.
All of a sudden, I felt that all the ropes on me broke and that the heavy substance on my chest had toppled over.
During this time, my daughter kept wiping away my sweat and shouted in panic, “Mom, what's wrong with you!”
I could not open my eyes, but I could feel she was really scared. I said to her with a smile, “I'm fine now. Master has brought me back from death.”
The pain subdued and my whole body felt relaxed.
My Daughter Signed the Statement of Responsibility
All my pain disappeared the next morning, even the places where the bone was fractured.
The doctors told my daughter that if I refused to have an operation, she would have to sign a statement of responsibility.
“Let's follow the discharge procedure and go home,” I said to my daughter.
“But Dad wouldn't agree. He insists that you have the operation,” my daughter said anxiously.
“Just go and sign the statement. I have gained a never-degenerating body through cultivation. No matter how good modern medicine may be, I have nothing to do with it. Don't worry. As long as I conduct myself according to Master's requirements, Master will fix my leg in no time.”
My daughter was in tears and still appeared reluctant to sign the statement. Just then, a scene in a strange dream that I had recently flashed into my mind.
I told my daughter, “I had a dream a few days ago that I was flying in the sky. You and your husband tried to catch me. I asked you why you were trying to catch me, and you two said that you wanted to draw out all the blood from my heart. I thought you two were so heartless, as I had done so much for you. I was trying to fly away from you but you kept chasing me. Then I heard a voice saying: 'You will die if you bleed.' You two did not catch me in the dream, but you did catch me in real life and you brought me to the hospital. If I have an operation, I will bleed, and I will die as a result. Haven't you noticed that I was not bleeding at all even though I was so badly injured?”
I told my daughter that she and her husband were wearing the same clothes in my dream as when they brought me to the hospital and that Master had dropped me a hint about what would happen to me in my dream.
“I only believe in Dafa and Master. My leg will definitely heal with Dafa cultivation. If you force me to have the surgery, I will definitely die,” I said firmly.
Hearing these words, my daughter turned around and signed the statement of responsibility.
“How dare you!” my son-in-law shouted. “Do you want Mom to die?”
Just then, another practitioner came to see me. My daughter asked her doubtfully, “If my mom hasn't cultivated to a high level, will Master still take care of her? I could not stop my hand from shaking when I signed the statement.”
“Don't you worry. Your mom has cultivated to a high level and Master will certainly take care of her,” the practitioner said to her.
With this assurance in mind, my daughter changed her attitude completely and she tried her best to convince her dad and her husband, but they still would not listen.
My Husband's Stubbornness Yields to Reason in the End
My husband tried to get me to agree to an operation. He asked everyone he could contact in the hospital to persuade me to undertake an operation, including the top administrator of the hospital.
I said to the head of the hospital, “I'm a Falun Dafa practitioner. My leg will heal without an operation.”
“It's impossible,” he argued. “How can your comminuted fracture heal without treatment? There is no such precedent in medical history.”
I told him that I used to suffer from severe spinal periosteal inflammation and colitis. I sought treatment from various hospitals including this one, but nothing worked. After I started practicing Falun Gong, all my illnesses disappeared.
“Dafa can help with everything. My leg will be healed,” I said.
He shook his head as he walked out, saying, “It's absolutely impossible!”
All the other medical staff went quiet.
My husband then asked all our friends and relatives to talk me into agreeing to the operation.
For a few days, my ward was filled with people who all tried to get me to agree to the operation.
I took that opportunity to clarify the truth to them, starting from how I regained my health through cultivation in Dafa, to the broad spread of Dafa around the world, and then to the staged self-immolation and finally to the movement to quit the Chinese Communist Party.
However, my elder brother and younger brother refused to listen. They were angry with me and told their children to come to intimidate me; some of them even cursed me. No matter what they did, I kept a calm mind with no resentment or regret.
My mother-in-law said to my husband, “Don't you worry. I'll go and talk to her. If she doesn't listen, I will kneel down for as long as it takes.”
She is already in her 80s and I felt really sorry for the trouble she had taken to come to see me. I kindly told her what had happened to me and what I had experienced.
After I finished, she turned around and yelled at her son.
“What operation are you talking about?! Can't you see that she is in no pain even though her leg is so badly swollen? It's obvious she is protected by gods. She practices Dafa and her Master is protecting her. Take her out of the hospital quickly. She will be fine in a few days.”
I knew in my heart that Master was helping me.
My husband still argued, “If your Master is protecting you, then you would not have been hit by a car in the first place. How come you were hit? How come you cannot move and walk? You are being so unreasonable!”
I told him calmly that if I had no xinxing problems, the old forces wouldn't have even dared to do such a thing to a Dafa disciple. Now that it happened, I would negate it and I would not acknowledge it. If I take this attitude, then my Master can do anything to fix the problem because the power of Dafa is immeasurable.
I went on to explain to him, “My Master has made use of what had happened to balance the sins I committed in history – an act that ultimately saved my life. I only suffered a little while he endured much of the actual suffering for me. You will never understand this with a human mentality. No human language is ever adequate to express what Master has given me. Think about it. Would I be able to survive the way I was hit if I had not practiced Falun Dafa? Master has brought me back from death! My leg would heal far quicker if you stopped urging me to have an operation.”
My husband finally seemed to get the point. He calmed down and turned silent.
The Miraculous Healing of My Shattered Leg
I spent most of my time in the hospital studying the Fa, checking myself with its standards and fixing the flaws in my thinking. As I still could not sit up, I sent forth righteous thoughts in bed.
From time to time, medical experts, professional authorities, and doctors would come to lecture me with their reasoning. Every time the doctors and nurses came by on their daily rounds, they would glance at me patronizingly as if I were something strange.
Sometimes they talked quietly among themselves and the nurses would turn around and laugh. Some of them could hardly hold their backs straight as they laughed at me so much.
“We have a monster here, who refuses treatment even with a fracture,” one of them said.
I ignored their disrespectful remarks and always spoke to them pleasantly. I knew in my heart that they would change in the face of reality.
Ten days later, after an x-ray, the director of the orthopedics department announced that all my broken bones had realigned themselves where they belonged and were healing well. There was no need for an operation and I would be able to walk as normal!
My whole family was overjoyed. The other practitioner jumped up and said, “It's a miracle! Thank you, Master!” Everyone present clapped their hands.
The director went on, “We have been wondering in our department why this lady didn't feel any pain.”
He then gave me a thumbs-up and said, “You're a warrior of steel!”
“I'm not a steel warrior, but a Dafa disciple!”
Everyone in the room burst out laughing.
Having witnessed the miracle, two of the nurses started to practice Falun Dafa. I taught them the exercises and they also obtained Dafa books. All my friends and relatives quit the communist party and its affiliated organizations, as well as some doctors and nurses.
I was able to stand up only a month after I got back home; two months later, I could walk with extra help; by the fifth month, not only was I able to walk, I could also do all kinds of household chores!
My whole family witnessed the miraculous power of Dafa and everyone was totally convinced that Falun Dafa is good! Now, they are all very happy and healthy. My husband's stubborn gout also disappeared; he now burns incense every morning to pay respect to Master. My 91-year-old mother-in-law is also in good health.
“Falun Dafa Is Miraculous!”
To say that everyone was surprised is an understatement. My story quickly spread from family to friends to strangers.
My elder brother said, “How can you heal without treatment? I now understand that there are truly gods out there if you believe in them.”
My doctor said, “You've recovered quicker and better than you would have even with an operation. Falun Dafa is truly miraculous!”
One of the nurses commented, “You're extraordinary! You have truly pulled through. Weren't you scared at the time?”
A veteran rural doctor said, “No plaster casts or splints, and the bones reset themselves. This is nothing short of a myth in the human world!”
A neighbor of my mother-in-law said, “Falun Dafa is so magical. Isn't Falun Dafa's Master a true Buddha? In my view, all those who persecute Falun Dafa will get what they deserve in the end!”
Now, I'm not only completely back to normal physically but have also experienced great positive changes both mentally and with my appearance. I'm always full of joy and happiness.
Looking back, I have stumbled and fallen again and again on my cultivation path. But each time, it was Master who helped me up and guided me to walk more steadily, while encouraging me to measure my conduct with the Fa principles and learn from my mistakes. Every step I have taken is saturated with Master's immense compassion and sacrifice. I'm determined to do better and better as a Dafa disciple.
