My Granddaughter's Story
(Minghui.org) I am almost 80 and have cultivated in Falun Dafa for 20 years. I have been very energetic and positive since I became a practitioner. Master told me to consider others first, so I got rid of my aggressiveness and the attachment to selfishness.
I have two sons, and their wives each had a baby. One was born in 2001 and the other in 2002. The babies were born one year apart, but had the same birthday. I presume they have a predestined relationship. Since they were born into our family, I know that I am responsible for leading them to cultivate. My older son had to work in a city outside my hometown, so my grandson moved away with his parents.
I took care of my granddaughter. One weekend, we watched Master’s lectures together. She sat on the sofa and watched the video for an hour. She pointed at the television and said to me that she saw trees and a beautiful pavilion. She drew a picture of what she had seen and explained it to me.
Then, she held an amulet with a girl sitting inside a lotus flower on it and told me that the girl was moving and the white cloud nearby was drifting past. I said that I could not see these things. She told me to stare at the image without thinking about anything else. I was very happy and told her: “You are a good girl. You have a good relationship with Dafa. Master opened your celestial eye and let you see such a beautiful scene.” She was smiling.
One day, I taught her to draw. She stood in front of Master’s Fa picture and said: “Grandma, I want to cultivate in Dafa. I will be more diligent than you.”
Hearing her say, “I want to cultivate Dafa,” was so precious. I replied: “Great. We should study Dafa firmly.”
Surviving an Accident
I took my granddaughter to play on the sidewalk one weekend morning. A lady, around 40 years old, rode a motorcycle up onto the sidewalk, hit my granddaughter, and drove over her body and both arms. I cried out and ran up to her. The woman was scared too and said: “Let’s take her to the hospital. Is she alright?”
My granddaughter was shouting: “Grandma, I don’t want to go to the hospital, I am okay.” I was so astonished when I heard, “I am okay.” She had such righteous thinking. That woman was around 160 lbs, plus the weight of the motorcycle. Both went over a small girl’s body. I couldn't imagine how terrible the damage could be. What would I tell my son and his wife if something happened to her? I felt very scared.
I still took her to the hospital to have her checked over. She said she was fine. Only her arms had a few scratches, which healed after three days. My thinking was not as righteous as hers.
Whenever I thought about that accident, I felt scared. If my granddaughter had been an everyday person, I could not imagine the tragedy that could have been. Master protected my granddaughter and saved her. I really appreciate Master’s grace.
During the summer break, my grandson came back to our town. The children watched the movies “Story of the Great Flood” and “Nine-Color Deer.”
One day, we read articles about Master helping people get rid of illnesses. All of a sudden, my grandson kowtowed to Master. My granddaughter saw her cousin and did the same. My grandson said, “Master is so great.” He did that after reading the story about Master remotely curing an ill child in France. Both grandchildren admired Master from the bottom of their hearts.
When my granddaughter was going to middle school, she sometimes came to my home for lunch. While she was there, I read Minghui articles about young practitioners' cultivation experiences to her. Then, we read a few pages of Zhuan Falun.
One day, she told me that she had a stomachache while in school. She said she recited “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great” and “Falun Dafa is great” and the pain disappeared.
Explaining a Dream
She also shared a dream with me. One day, she heard a huge sound and all the houses collapsed. Someone covered her and one of her classmates with a big pot so they wouldn't be hurt by the falling bricks. When they stood up, the person was gone. They walked west and found a cave. They went into the cave and found that it opened onto a wide plain... Then she woke up.
I shared my understanding about her dream. I said it might indicate that there will be a disaster, like a flood or an earthquake. Master might tell you that you and your friend are protected and send you to a wide plain to start a beautiful future. Meanwhile, your classmate must have a predestined relationship with Dafa. You should clarify the truth to her and save her.
One day, my granddaughter came to my home for lunch. I said: “There are materials that provide information about Falun Dafa. You can take some and put them on your neighbors' door handles.” During the new year, my granddaughter and grandson helped me put up informational posters.
When my granddaughter was going to high school, she told me that her workload was very heavy and it made her very tired. I printed some articles from Minghui such as “Falun Dafa Changed Me to a Better Person,” and brought them to her when I visited her every week. I waited for her in front of her school. She said that she was too busy and only had time to recite “On Dafa.” I encouraged her to continue her righteous thoughts and recite “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great.”
She finished high school smoothly. Her math was weak but she got the highest mark in her class by the end of high school. Dafa gave her wisdom. She was admitted into a well-known university.
Thank you, Master.
