(Minghui.org) When I was a teenager, I was fortunate to live with an aunt who practiced Falun Dafa. She often shared her understanding of the teachings with me, and took me along to study the Fa with other practitioners. I was moved by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and the practitioners I met were compassionate people.
After realizing that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecuted good people, I asked my aunt to help me quit the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers, two CCP youth organizations. I also signed a petition calling to bring Jiang Zemin, the former head of the CCP who started the persecution of Falun Dafa, to justice. Although I hadn’t begun practicing Falun Dafa, “Falun Dafa is great, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great” have been engraved in my heart.
After I left my aunt’s home, she and other practitioners stayed in touch with me, and helped me break through many difficulties in my life. I’m so fortunate to live in the warm light of Falun Dafa.
I would like to share the amazing experience of how Falun Dafa protected me and my baby.
When I missed my period, my doctor suspected that I had an ectopic pregnancy, and ordered an ultrasound exam. Lying on the cold examination bed, I wept in fear. I remembered and started reciting, “Falun Dafa is great,” and, “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great.” I kept saying these words until the end of the ultrasound.
My husband tried to comfort me by saying, “Don’t worry. It’s not ectopic.” We went to the hospital together to get the ultrasound result the next day. While waiting, I repeated in my mind, “Falun Dafa is great! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great!” The doctor confirmed that I was pregnant. We were thrilled. However, she told me that she still couldn’t rule out the possibility of ectopic pregnancy. Her words made my heart sink and I started crying again. My mother-in-law said we would seek a second opinion from a better hospital at the end of the month.
I repeated the Falun Dafa phrases in my mind every day. After going through a thorough examination in another hospital, the doctor there told me that everything checked out normal about my pregnancy, and I should come back in a week to check the fetal heart. When we returned one week later, the baby’s heartbeat was fine.
When it was close to my labor, I was told that my baby was too big. I had hoped to give birth naturally, but the news shattered my hope. One of my uncles who practices Falun Dafa told me, “Talk to your baby, and ask him to come out naturally. He will understand.” His encouraging words gave me hope. Throughout my pregnancy, I found myself repeatedly reciting the nine words in my mind—I didn’t even need to remind myself.
I doubted if I could give birth naturally when the labor was most painful. I asked myself if I could persist. My family kept encouraging me to hold on. My doctor told me that my baby was in a malposition, and we probably needed a C-section, or an episiotomy at the minimum.
I was frightened and in my heart, I kept begging Master Li (the founder of Falun Dafa) to help me. My baby was eventually born smoothly, without any surgery. He was healthy and alert and kept looking around at us. My doctor was amazed. She said, “Look at his big eyes! He started inspecting everyone as soon as he was born!”
When the nurse put my baby in my arms, I couldn’t stop my tears. My doctor told me there was no episiotomy or any tearing. She praised me for being strong and said she had rarely seen any baby come out so easily.
I knew that it was Falun Dafa’s Master who has protected me and my baby!
The next day, my baby had jaundice. I was told not to nurse him. I continued to repeat the nine special words about Falun Dafa. My baby recovered soon, and has been in good health since!
Thank you, Master! Thank you, Falun Dafa!
