(Minghui.org) For many Falun Dafa practitioners, this ancient spiritual discipline has not only improved their character and health but also blessed and protected both them and their family members in life-threatening situations.
A practitioner and her husband went to visit his brother during the 2022 Chinese New Year. While drinking herbal-infused spirits, her husband suddenly vomited and fainted at the dining table.
Everyone at the gathering was frantic. The practitioner’s brother-in-law wondered if his brother had choked, but he didn’t gasp or struggle to get a foreign object out of his throat. The practitioner patted her husband’s back, but he was still unconscious.
Someone called out, “Let’s take him to the hospital!” At that critical moment, the practitioner asked for help from Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa. She recited the auspicious phrases, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
Even before she finished saying them for the third time, her husband opened his eyes. She continued reciting the phrases until he completely regained consciousness. Everyone was relieved when he stood up.
After a brief rest, the practitioner and her husband took a taxi home. The practitioner talked to the taxi driver about Falun Dafa and urged him to quit the Chinese Communist Party, which has done much evil in persecuting practitioners. The practitioner’s husband didn’t stop her like he used to, knowing that Falun Dafa had just saved his life. He has also become more supportive of her efforts to raise awareness of the persecution.
Another practitioner told the story of her daughter-in-law, who lives with her. The young woman was taking her two children to visit her own mother when she had an accident and her car went into a ditch. The front bumper fell off and the wheels were ruined, but the three of them were unhurt.
The daughter-in-law later told the practitioner that she had taken a bag of Falun Dafa amulets with her that day and she believed it was Master Li who protected them in the accident.
The daughter-in-law has always supported the practitioner in practicing her faith. She took over the household chores when the practitioner was busy. When other practitioners came to visit, she always welcomed them. And when the police came to harass the practitioner, her daughter-in-law spoke up for her.
A 66-year-old practitioner recounted a head-on crash with a motorcycle while she was riding her bike in July 2005. The motorcycle swerved into the wrong lane, and she ended up flying into the air.
When the driver of the motorcycle came over to check on her, she told him that she was fine and she got home by herself. She had some pain in her neck and back, but it was gone in a week after she did the Falun Dafa exercises more often.
In June 2019, the practitioner took her six-year-old grandson to her hometown for a visit. The little boy fell down the stairs, but he was fine.
Practitioner Wang’s daughter-in-law owns a salon. One of her regular clients lives next door to the salon. The client was recently diagnosed with late-stage rectal cancer. Despite the medications and treatment, she was getting worse. When the pain became unbearable, she often went to the salon to chat with practitioner Wang’s daughter-in-law.
When Wang went to the salon one day, the client was telling her daughter-in-law how the treatment and medications weren’t doing her any good.
“I know something that might cure you,” Wang said.
When the client asked what it was, Wang replied, “Recite the auspicious phrases, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
“I’ve tried so many different drugs and treatments, but none of them improved my condition. How can reciting a couple of phrases help me?”
“Why don’t you give it a try? It won’t cost you a thing.”
The client’s son got married soon after. It turned out that his mother-in-law was also a Falun Dafa practitioner. When she heard about the client’s situation, she also urged her to recite the phrases and explained to her that Falun Dafa is a Buddha school energy practice and reciting the phrases could bring one blessings.
The client became very supportive of Falun Dafa. In addition to reciting the phrases, sometimes she also went out with her in-law to distribute informational materials about it. Her condition kept improving and she was fully recovered shortly after.
Last fall, she rode a bike to a farm far away and harvested dozens of pounds of corn. On her way back, there was a big hill. When she felt she didn’t have the strength to climb it, she recited the phrases to keep herself moving. In the past, she would have been exhausted the next day. But to her surprise, she woke up the next morning full of energy.
Editor’s note: Falun Dafa is extraordinary and magnificent, and its mighty power reaches both the macrocosm and the microcosm. The case detailed in this article is just a tiny manifestation of the power of Dafa on the level of the secular world. While Dafa can bring blessings to humankind, Dafa's extraordinariness and magnificence are more for people to return to their true origins.
