Extraordinary Phenomena Experienced on the Path of Cultivation
(Minghui.org) I have personally experienced many extraordinary phenomena on my 20-year path of cultivating Falun Dafa.. The examples I describe here are only a few of the countless things I have seen and experienced.
My Son's Disorientation Resolved
During the summer of 1999, my son’s teacher was concerned about his performance and called me to her office to inform me that he seemed absent-minded and showed signs of an abnormal mental state.
I went to talk with her, and she described how he was unable to answer even the simplest math problems and always seemed distracted. When I got home, I found him sitting at his desk holding a book in his hands, but the expression on his face was blank.
My husband looked at him and asked, “Are you okay?” He didn’t respond. I was sure he would be fine, but my husband was very worried.
We found out later that he had been secretly staying up all night watching videos on his computer.
Master Li taught,
“Psychosis occurs when a person’s Main Consciousness becomes too weak. How weak can it become? It is like a person who can never take charge of himself. A mental patient’s Main Spirit is just like that. It no longer wants to be in charge of the body. It is always in a daze and cannot become conscious. At this point, the person’s Assistant Consciousness or foreign messages will interfere with him.” (Lecture Six in Zhuan Falun)
I sat down next to him and asked, “How are you doing?” He started talking incoherently. I felt my scalp tingling and knew that it was not his true self speaking.
I got his attention and said, “It is not you who is talking to me.” He was surprised and said, “Really, are you sure?” “Yes, I am sure.” He started babbling again, but I stopped him and talked to him about my understanding of what he was experiencing based on what I had learned from studying the Fa. He listened intently and nodded his head showing that he accepted my explanation.
I reached out to put my hand on his shoulder. When I touched him, he about jumped out of his seat. It seemed as if there was an electrical grid around him, and he had been shocked by my hand. My husband was scared, but I stayed very calm and said to him, “How about I read Zhuan Falun to you, okay?” I read the first lecture, and he listened to the whole thing.
The Fa entered his ears and suppressed the bad things that were bothering him. When I was finished with the lecture, he fell into a deep sleep.
I began to read Zhuan Falun to him every day, and we also practiced the exercises together. Soon he relaxed and his spirit lifted. Gradually, a smile replaced the frightened expression on his face and light came back to his eyes.
In just seven days, his symptoms of a mental disorder disappeared completely. His performance at school shot up, and his teacher complimented his attentiveness. My husband and I were very encouraged. Our whole family was bathed in Dafa's grace.
I was very weak and got sick often before I took up cultivation. But soon after I began to practice Dafa, I became healthy and strong. I started to walk with a spring in my step and a smile on my face. At the time, it seemed like a miracle was sweeping all of China. Falun Dafa was growing fast and everyone who took up the practice was experiencing good health and improvement in their lives in countless ways. My mother-in-law witnessed my transformation and was very impressed. She supported Dafa, even after it came under attack.
Soon after the episode of my son’s mental problem, our world turned upside down. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched a comprehensive persecution to eradicate Falun Dafa. The entire media fiercely besmirched Dafa with a constant barrage of fake news, rumors and lies about the practice. The unprecedented persecution continues to this day.
My Mother-in-law's Steadfast Support
Along with hundreds of thousands of other innocent Falun Dafa practitioners, I was sent to a forced labor camp and persecuted for refusing to give up my faith in the practice.
With a strong faith in Dafa, I was released and returned home. My mother-in-law hugged me and cried. She said out loud to everybody in the room, “Falun Dafa is not superstition. It is the highest science! Falun Dafa is good!” Everyone fell silent.
Even in those dark days when the CCP’s persecution and disinformation campaign against Dafa were raging, she understood that the practice is great and had the courage to speak out positively about it. Though she had never been to school, she could tell good from evil and right from wrong, and she always stood on the side of good.
My Grandma’s Hair Turns Black
My relatives gathered together for the Chinese New Year. When we were having our dinner celebration, my young nephew pointed out to all of us, “Grandma’s hair is turning black!” Everyone came over to take a look. Sure enough, black hair was filling in under her white hair. Everyone was amazed. No one had ever seen that before. I explained to my family that even in the midst of the persecution and slander against Dafa, Grandma always supported me in my practice. She wasn’t afraid to talk about how good the practice was, and she helped others learn the truth that Dafa is truly wonderful. Not at all what the CCP had made it out to be.
Soon after the new year had passed, I was arrested again. This time I was locked up and persecuted for seven long years. By the time I was released and returned home, my mother-in-law‘s hair had indeed returned to its original shiny black color. She lived to be 100 years old and passed away peacefully without any illness. I told my family that because she always supported Dafa and refused to believe the lies that the CCP spread about the practice, she was blessed and would surely go to heaven.
More recently, I took a bus to go get a new ID card. I visited a friend on the way there which made me late getting home. The zipper of my backpack had broken, so I held it in my lap to make sure everything stayed in.
I got in late that night, so I stayed with a fellow practitioner who lived near the bus station. I went to bed without opening the bag or checking its contents.
When I got up in the morning and opened the bag, I found that my wallet was missing. I shouted, “My wallet is gone!” The couple that I stayed with helped me search the pack for it. We took everything out, but there was no trace of my wallet.
My heart froze and fear gripped me. I searched inside trying to find my loophole. I realized that I was stirred by emotion, and that I needed to calm down and eliminate my fear and strengthen my faith in Dafa. I knew that in order to improve myself according to Dafa, I could not allow any omission to remain in my character.
A few more practitioners arrived and we all sent forth righteous thoughts to negate any old force arrangement. When Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, taught disciples how to send forth righteous thoughts he said,
“...thinking about eliminating the bad thoughts, karma, bad notions, and external interference in their minds. As you’re like this, think that they die, and then they will be eliminated. Five minutes will do.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2001 Canada Fa Conference” in Guiding the Voyage)
I recited this Fa principle word by word to eliminate the bad elements in my mind. Then I cleaned out the evil factors in other dimensions. While sitting quietly, I had the thought in the back of my mind, “Master, please transport my lost wallet back to me.”
When we were done sending forth righteous thoughts, low and behold, my wallet was laying on my backpack! I cried out loudly, “My wallet is back!” The other practitioners came to see for themselves. Tears flowed, and a fellow practitioner said, “Open it and take a look.” I opened the wallet and found all the money and documents were there. It was as though the wallet had never been lost.
Master's benevolence touched us deeply. The experience showed that cultivating Falun Dafa is a path to the divine. I am so lucky to be a Dafa practitioner, and I am eternally grateful for Master's boundless compassion!
