Truly Helping a Practitioner Overcome Sickness Karma
(Minghui.org) Ming recently suffered from severe back pain and received treatment at a clinic. The massage they administered, however, only made her pain worse, and she couldn’t get out of bed.
I went to visit her and shared my understandings from the Fa, especially about staying true to just one spiritual practice. I believed that her problem resulted from a neglect of Fa-study.
She said that she had asked her son to take her to the hospital for a checkup the next day. I told her to remember to sincerely recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
She later shared two amazing stories about the power of reciting the “magical” phrase. The first was when she had to bike back home from work against a strong wind while her back was in pain. She continuously recited “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and the pain dramatically subsided.
Another time, she was reciting the sentences while waiting for her checkup at the hospital. After some time, she could stand up and walk around by herself. Her son was confused by her sudden improvement and asked if she felt better. She replied that she was fine. After the exam, the doctor said that she suffered from lumbar muscle strain and needed to rest at home.
I kindly reminded her of her predestined relationship with Dafa, Master Li Hongzhi’s (the founder) magnanimity, and to look within to find her own shortcomings. I also asked her if she wanted study the Fa with me every day, to which she agreed.
During that time, I was able to eliminate my attachment to laziness, as I was hopping from two different homes and cooking separate meals for her and my own family members.
Yet, I didn’t miss a day of studying the Fa, doing the exercises, and sending forth righteous thoughts.
Studying the Fa
Ming was home alone when her son went to work. She continued to be in a lot of pain and couldn’t sit up in bed, so she studied the Fa while lying down. After a while, she struggled to read clearly because her eyes hurt. I then started reading each sentence for her to repeat.
One afternoon, as we prepared to send forth righteous thoughts, she experienced back spasms with such severe intensity that she couldn’t even recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
I asked her to repeat the sentences after me, but she couldn’t endure the pain and wanted to give up. I encouraged her to maintain righteous thoughts and ask for Master Li's help.
I told her to continue saying the sentences while I sent strong righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil that was interfering with her.
The evil tried to exploit my sentiment towards Ming by showing me her painful expressions. I remained unmoved and continued to send righteous thoughts.
Even more hideous expressions then appeared in an attempt to scare me. I overcame my fear, so the evil beings began marching towards me. I asked for Master’s help to eradicate the evil so I could calm down.
I then saw snakes, scorpions, and ghost-like creatures trying to control her. I remained calm and continued to focus on sending righteous thoughts. All the evil beings eventually died in the end.
At that moment, Ming slowly got up, and her pain subsided. I suggested that she continue to ask for Master’s help so she could fully recover and be able to study the Fa, send righteous thoughts, and do the exercises.
She strengthened her righteous thoughts and miraculously stood up. She then felt well enough to walk around and do some housework.
Her relatives were happy for her recovery, and that she could do things again without needing assistance. She was excited to overcome the ordeals and move freely again.
Thank you, Teacher, for helping us overcome these obstacles!
