Dafa Has Saved Me and Many Others
(Minghui.org) In the 23 years, I have been practicing Falun Dafa, I have had many amazing and miraculous experiences, way too many to count. We will never be able to repay what Master Li Hongzhi has given us. Here I would like to share with you some of the wonderful experiences I have had in my cultivation and hope that you will benefit from the practice like I have.
Dafa Has Saved Me
I am 55-years-old and a born and bred rural village resident. Even when I was very young, I was aware what a struggle it was for my family to send me to school so I was very keen to help my parents out on our farm during the weekends or on school holidays. During my last year of senior high school, I developed a heart condition, which occurred after I had a wash with cold water from a well one afternoon after having spent a few days harvesting wheat. Many hospitals we visited had no effective treatment for my heart condition. One doctor told my parents, “Let her rest at home and make sure she does not do any chores that are slightly demanding physically, not even sweeping the floor.” As a result, my life took a drastic turn. I had no energy for anything and had to give up going to school. Like an invalid, I stayed in bed most of the time.
After getting married at the age of 24, I was pregnant with my first child. The hospital in our township was reluctant to deliver the baby due to my severe heart condition. It only got worse after I gave birth. At its worst, I was so weak that I could not even make myself heard and was frequently wrapped up in thick clothing in the height of summer. Desperate to find a cure, my husband and I tried some qigong practices but they did not help.
Fortunately, Falun Dafa spread to our local area in June 1996 and my husband and I were able to listen to the audio recording of Master Li’s lectures in Jinan. As I listened, I came to understand that as human beings we need to live in accordance with the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. And that the karma we have accumulated over our many lifetimes is the fundamental cause of our illnesses and hardships in life. In my heart, I told Master: “Dear Master, I am glad I have found you. I want to become a virtuous person!”
After I finished listening to the lectures over the course of nine days, my health was magically transformed. I felt a lightness to my body I have never experienced before, so much so that I could feel my heels lifting off the ground when I walked. I was overjoyed and indescribable happiness filled my days.
Sometime later, Master began cleansing my head. My headache caused me to hold my hands over it and bang it against the wall for relief. Not wanting to scare my family, I told them: “Please go out and leave me alone. Master is cleansing my head for me. I will be all right.” I told Master in my mind: “Thank you, Master, for looking after me. I know this is a good thing.” I did not get any sleep through the night but was wide awake and alert the next day. My headache went away and my sleep has since improved. A few days later, a chill spread all over me and every part of my body was aching, including the joints. I realized it was Master clearing out my karma for me so I just ignored it. The condition went away after a few days. About a year later, I had a bloody nose one day. The bleeding was so heavy that I had to catch it with a tub. The bleeding would stop when I went out but would start again when I got home. Again, I was certain that it was Master rooting out my heart disease for me. It lasted for only half a month.
In the winter of 1997, some fellow practitioners and I gathered to read Zhuan Falun. On the first night, I noticed my fingertips were black as if stained by black ink. I tried washing them off but it did not come off. Strangely, the black color disappeared the next day. The same thing occurred nine days in a row. I figured it was because I had performed healing with my hands before and Master was cleansing them for me. Having experienced one cleansing episode after another, my faith in Dafa and Master became ever stronger.
In 2010, I had a large festering wound on the top of my right foot. Pus and blood-soaked through the socks I put on during the day. When I took them off at night, I also ripped off the skin and flesh that got stuck to the sock, exposing my raw, bloody flesh. However horrifying that appeared, I knew from my understanding of the Fa that Master was cleansing my body at a deeper level. That situation persisted for three years. One night I cleaned my wound as usual and went to bed. When I woke up the next day, I was surprised to find my foot completely healed; not even a scar could be seen.
While reliving those memories today, I am especially in awe of the amazing and almighty power of Master and Dafa. Thank you, Master!
Dafa Has Saved Many Others
All these years, in the face of the vicious persecution in China, I have persevered with my cultivation, persisting in doing well the three things, including improving my xinxing and clarifying the truth to save more people.
On New Year’s Day 2018, I went out in the morning to clarify the truth. I greeted a man in a park, “Happy New Year!” I then asked him, “Sir, have you heard about withdrawals from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations in order to secure your own safety?” He said in an unfriendly tone, “I don’t know what you mean. I am from out of town. I am only here for the New Year.” I asked him, “Where are you from?” He said he was from Jilin. I thought, “No wonder he could not understand my Mandarin.” Anyhow, I told him when he left to please remember, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
To my surprise, he smiled and took his cell phone from his pocket and said, “You people have done really well here. I took a photo of a sticker that says, ‘Falun Dafa is good’ in a building corridor. We seldom get to see anything like that in our area because of the harsh suppression there.” I asked him, “Do you know anything about Falun Dafa?” In a leisurely manner, he started to tell me about his family’s story. “My mother was a Falun Dafa practitioner. She passed away in her eighties. She enjoyed good health while she was alive and passed away peacefully. While she was still alive, my wife and I did not oppose her faith but we did not believe in it ourselves. She pointed to the book Zhuan Falun and told us with her last breath, “That is a treasure! You have to cherish it!” We did not think much of what she said at the time.
Last year, my wife fell ill and it turned out that she had late-stage cancer. She was put on a wait list for a hospital bed. When we got home I remembered my mother’s last words, so I took out Zhuan Falun and said to my wife, “My mother said this is a treasure. Why don’t we read it together?” So we started reading it every day. Half a month later, the hospital called my wife to go for a checkup in preparation for an operation. We were dumbfounded when the results of the checkup found my wife was cancer-free! My wife was puzzled as to why. I was surprised myself – we did not do anything differently except for reading Zhuan Falun. Falun Dafa is amazing! Since then we have been reading it every day.”
“Big brother, I have also witnessed myself many cases of cancer or lupus patients regaining their health after taking up the practice of Falun Dafa. Dafa is phenomenal. Please do cherish it!” I explained to him about quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations and he did not hesitate to quit. He asked me, “How do we cultivate in Dafa?” I told him, “You have to study the Fa, do the exercises and improve your xinxing. Please look for some practitioners in your local area and they will be more than happy to help you.”
A few days later, on January 4, I met a smartly dressed woman. I struck up a conversation with her and tried to clarify the truth to her. She said, “I believe in Jesus, but I am not opposed to Falun Dafa. I know Falun Dafa is amazing.” I was pleasantly surprised, “How come you know so much about Falun Dafa?” She told me the story about her coworker, “I have a very close coworker who suffered from a bad heart condition. Some years back, she had a heart attack. She stopped breathing while she was in the hospital emergency room. As she was wheeled to the morgue, a Falun Dafa practitioner came over and screamed at the family members and friends gathered around: “Quick! Recite Falun Dafa is great, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great!” In desperation, everyone did as they were told. Lo and behold, their voices woke up the dead. She told me afterward, the voices seemed to have come from a really faraway place. She has since become a sincere Falun Dafa practitioner herself and has never wavered in her faith. Her whole world has changed – she is now healthy, not so attached to many ordinary people’s things, not fighting over personal gain and has become very considerate of other people.”
Quietly listening to her story, I had that wonderful experience of being immersed in Master’s bountiful grace. I give thanks to Master, to Dafa.
