(Minghui.org) Greetings to Master! Greetings to all fellow practitioners! I would like to share something that happened to me before I took up cultivation, as an account of a miracle of Dafa that I experienced myself.
I was born into a family of practitioners and have always been exposed to the high-level teachings and principles of Dafa. As a child, however, I wasn’t entirely serious and didn’t take it to heart, even though I did believe in the teachings. My father, who was also a Dafa practitioner, did the exercises with me, read the book Zhuan Falun with me, and answered any questions I had.
Things went well until I hit puberty. Throughout my life, I have been chubby, with more than a few pounds to spare. However, in my early teens, I went from being chubby to fat to severely overweight. As a result, I contracted Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), and my hormones spiraled out of control.
I remember complaining about severe abdominal pain to my parents. After the doctor ran a few tests, he told me that I had developed ovarian cysts, which were too big to be dissolved with medication. At the young age of 13, I was admitted to the hospital and had to have minor surgery to have them removed.
The entire experience was daunting, and I desperately hoped that my life would return to normal. But it didn’t. The cysts continued to recur over the next few years, and I had three surgeries for the same problem.
During one of my visits to the hospital, the doctor spoke privately with my parents about an additional problem that they didn’t tell me about for years, worried about how it would affect me. It turned out that the cyst, because it was so large, had actually twisted my ovary to such an extent that it was cutting off its blood supply; if it didn’t twist back into place in the next few days, they would have to remove the ovary. The chances of this happening were small, but real.
The doctors were surprised to find that, miraculously, and without any medical intervention, the next sonogram showed that my ovary was back in its original orientation with its proper blood supply restored. I was thus spared from going back under the knife and losing an important organ.
Of course, I now understand that everything I faced was for a reason and caused by a large amount of karma. Yet I am immensely grateful for everything that Master did for me even before I started cultivating.
