(Minghui.org) Many people who took up Falun Dafa have had miraculous experiences after they started to practice. The three practitioners below, who all live by Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, recount how Master Li protected them in times of danger.

Two Close Calls on My Tricycle

One practitioner wrote, “I started to practice Falun Dafa before the persecution started in 1999. In July 2015, I was driving a customer on the back of my motorized tricycle. Halfway to the customer’s destination, a truck came barreling from the opposite direction. Suddenly, a steel cylinder about nine meters long flew out of the truck directly toward us.

“There was no way to avoid it since it was headed directly at my chest. If I dodged, my customer sitting behind me would be hit. My first thought was, ‘I'd rather it hit me than my customer.’ Miraculously, the cylinder stopped right in front of me and dropped to the ground. It then bounced up about three meters and rolled into a deep ditch next to the road.

“My customer witnessed what happened and was so scared that his face turned pale. The truck stopped a hundred meters away. I knew it was Master who protected me.

“Another time, in the spring of 2016, I was headed home on my tricycle. Due to construction, I had to take an unpaved road. It was very bumpy and I was going very slowly, but the ground was so uneven that my tricycle turned over.

“I crawled out from under the tricycle and looked around. No one was there. And I was miles away from my village, and it was impossible to get the tricycle back on the road without help because it weighed nearly 700 pounds.

“I put my palms together and asked Master Li for help. Surprisingly, I was then able to lift the tricycle up and get it back on the road all by myself. I was so excited and appreciative of Master.”

Handcuff Opened by Itself

In the spring of 2006, a practitioner was detained in Hebei Province Detention Center for practicing Falun Dafa. Police officer Wang took him to meet with his lawyer.

In the meeting room, Wang ordered him to sit in a metal chair and handcuffed his left wrist to the arm of the chair. The practitioner had to speak to his lawyer through a metal grill. Then someone outside called for Wang and he left.

After talking with the practitioner, the lawyer also left. Alone in the room, the practitioner thought, “I follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a better person. And I did not do anything wrong. Why should I sit in this chair?” With that thought, the handcuff clicked open.

The practitioner stood up and walked out. A policeman saw him, ran over, and asked, “How did you get out of there?”

“The handcuff opened by itself,” the practitioner replied.

The officer did not say a word as he took the practitioner back to the detention center.

After that, officer Wang no longer yelled at the practitioners.

A Bolt of Lightning Out of the Blue

The third practitioner wrote, “The police arrested me and sent me to a women’s forced labor camp in May 2009.

“Inside the labor camp, the guards tortured me to try to force me to give up my belief. But I’d already made up my mind that, no matter what, I would never do that.

“They arranged for over 10 inmates to help 'transform' me. Five or six of them held my lower back and four limbs and twisted my left arm backwards, while another one grabbed my right hand to force me to sign a statement.

“At that critical moment, I cried out in my mind, “Master!” Suddenly, at 3 p.m. on a sunny day, a bolt of lightning came from the clear blue sky. It came down directly on the building, as if it would split it into two. Everyone in the room was stunned and stopped. The torture just ended like that.”

The practitioner knew it was Master’s doing. In the past, she’d only heard about “a bolt out of the blue.” Now she has witnessed it with her own eyes.
