When True Faith in the Power of Dafa Emerged, I Recovered from the CCP Virus
(Minghui.org) The daughter of a Falun Dafa practitioner was attending graduate school in Wuhan City when the coronavirus began spreading. She went from having clear symptoms of pneumonia to a full recovery by reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” The following is her story.
Chinese New Year was approaching, so I headed home from Wuhan on January 17, 2020. The city wasn’t sealed off at that time, and we had not been notified about the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus. A few days after I got home, news of human-to-human spread of the virus hit us like a bad storm. Because I had lived in Wuhan, the local authorities ordered me to go into self-quarantine.
I stayed at home and reported my temperature to the authorities every day. On January 29, my temperature was a little high, and I took some medicine to keep it down. The fever broke out again on February 1 and I measured 99.5ºF (37.5ºC). I couldn’t have been more terrified, especially since I had just learned that my teacher in Wuhan had tested positive for the CCP virus.
I thought of my mother who practiced Falun Dafa. She was not at home. I called her in tears and told her what had happened. She comforted me and said, “Sincerely recite the phrases: ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ and the illness will be gone.”
I didn’t listen to her right away. I was born and raised in China, and the influence of atheism and the CCP's indoctrination was powerful. I believed in science and hospitals. I asked my father to go to a hospital with me. The test came back negative–I was so happy!
My luck ran out a week later when my throat started tickling. I coughed and had a hard time breathing. I developed diarrhea and my whole body ached.
I started to worry about my family and the people I had come into contact with, now almost certain that I had the virus. I couldn’t sleep at night because I was feeling so scared and sick. I knew that it was serious.
I decided to recite the phrases my mother told me, as well as two phrases from Master Li Hongzhi’s book Hong Yin V. Each time I recited these phrases, my thoughts would wander off. I thought about going to the hospital again to seek treatment. My symptoms lingered.
My grandmother, who is also a Falun Dafa practitioner, came to visit me and also suggested reciting the phrases. I told her that I had been reciting them for days, but I wasn’t getting any better. “Do it sincerely and Master Li will definitely help you,” she said. “Think about it, you want Master to save your life, but you couldn’t even recite a phrase wholeheartedly. Do you really think that’s how it works?”
Grandma’s words woke me up. I couldn't ask for a favor sincerely, even when my life depended on it. I was deceiving Master and lying to myself, intending to cheat my way through. As soon as I caught my mistake, I felt wonderful and a stream of warm energy ran through me.
I stopped thinking about my health and sincerely recited the phrases whenever I had time. My health substantially improved over the next two days. By the third day I had a high fever and felt unbearably warm. I didn’t care, nor did I take my temperature. I kept reciting the phrases until I fell asleep.
I woke up the next morning and felt more comfortable than I ever have before! All of my symptoms were gone. I washed my face and hands and prayed in front of Master’s picture to express my ultimate respect and gratitude.
