(Minghui.org) I am a senior practitioner who started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998. In facing the persecution against Dafa, under Master Li Hongzhi's (Dafa’s founder) protection, I have made it through good times and bad. Below is my experience of how Master helped my husband and me pass tests of sickness karma.

My husband was admitted to the hospital after the doctor found there was a polyp in his abdomen that needed to be removed. Since nothing happens to practitioners by chance, I realized that the old forces were trying to stop me from doing the three things well. I knew I should be aware of this interference, eliminate it, and fulfill my responsibilities to assist Master in Fa rectification. I shouldn’t allow the old forces to take advantage of my loopholes.

Remaining Calm Under Pressure

I didn’t want to go to the hospital, and my children didn’t push me; they were worried that I would become anxious upon seeing my husband's condition. I was actually very calm.

Master said, “… with one person practicing, the whole family benefits ...” (Teachings at the Conference in Australia)

My husband knows Falun Dafa is good, and he treats fellow practitioners very well when they come to visit. Once he said, “You practitioners are all good people!” He has helped me with many Dafa projects.

When he had surgery, I was preparing truth-clarifying materials, which was very time-consuming.

One practitioner asked, “Your husband had an operation today. It seems you are not worried about it.” I replied, “I have asked Master to take care of everything.”My daughter called me that afternoon, and said that the operation was successful. The operation took about six hours, and he should be allowed to come home for the Chinese New Year.

However, not long after he returned, he had an infection and was admitted to the hospital again. They thought he would be fine a few days later, but when he had a check-up, the surgical incision didn’t recover well. This lasted almost half a year, and my daughter visited him more than 20 times.

The hospital was over 60 miles away, and each time she told me that the wound would soon be fine. But the last time she went, she returned and said, “I can’t tolerate it anymore! The doctor said each time they changed their father’s dressing, the infection went deeper and deeper. If this continues, a bigger operation will be needed. I didn’t tell you because I didn’t want you to worry.”

I was concerned, but I didn’t want my daughter to know it. I asked her to return home, and said, “Let me find a solution.”

Afterward, I looked within. I couldn’t find anything wrong so I knelt down in front of Master’s portrait, pleading “Master, I don’t know what I have done wrong. Please give me some hints and help my husband pass this tribulation.”

That night, as I was falling asleep, I saw a woman who died long ago pass by our window with a gloomy expression. Then a ghost with long hair pressed its face against the window. Later a duck flew by, which I sensed may have been killed by me. A mom and her son who lived across the street before they died then appeared.

I realized that they were demons. I was alarmed and shouted out the verses for sending forth righteous thoughts and asked Master for help. I cried for a long time before sending righteous thoughts.

The next night, I dreamed of the head demon. It looked tiny, and was locked in a birdcage because it had committed the crime of persecuting Dafa practitioners’ family members. I pointed at it and said, “Mie!” (eliminate) and it disappeared.

My children were shocked when I told them and remarked, “Fortunately, you asked Master for help. Otherwise, we don’t know what would have happened.”

My daughter went to the hospital again a few days later. When she returned, she exclaimed, “The doctor said he’s recovering well. He’ll need to spend two more days for observations before being able to return home!”

My husband is now in better health. He is 77 and doesn’t feel tired after walking up and down from the fifth floor of our apartment building. He also has no problem carrying a bag of rice (55 lbs), and says he can do anything, such as shopping, cooking, or going out to sell goods.

We had witnessed the miracle of Dafa. Master has given him a second life. Thank you Master! Thank you Dafa!

Passing Through a Tribulation in Three Hours

On the morning of September 8, after I finished studying a lecture of Zhuan Falun, I felt very dizzy. It became worse, and I could hardly move. I didn’t dare to open my eyes. I was about to vomit and struggled to get to the restroom in time.

My husband was working nearby anxiously asked, “What happened? You looked fine a moment ago.”

I said I was OK. After vomiting, I returned to rest but still felt dizzy. I was about to vomit again and went back to the restroom. I then cried in my heart, “Master, please help me!”

I thought to myself: “I have Master’s law bodies and the eight groups of Heavenly Law-Guardians, as well as righteous gods to protect me. No one can move me!” Then Master’s Fa appeared in my mind,

“If you are a true practitioner, our Falun will safeguard you. I am rooted in the universe. If anyone can harm you, he or she would be able to harm me. Put simply, that person would be able to harm this universe.”

“Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s Master.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)

I looked within and saw many attachments, such as jealousy, resentment, personal gain, showing off, lust, and selfishness.

Each test is a rung on the ladder to heaven. We should seize the opportunity! Only after we truly improve our xinxing can we raise our realm of cultivation.
