(Minghui.org) I’m 63 years old and have practiced Falun Dafa for 26 years. I would like to share my experience on how two illness tribulations helped me make a breakthrough in my cultivation.
Singing Dafa Songs Helps Me Overcome Illness Tribulation
I rented a flat in 2014 during the winter when it was bitterly cold. I seemed to catch a cold. I had the chills and I felt dizzy. As soon as I got up from bed, my head felt as if it had cracked open. I could only lie in bed.
My husband went to work and brought noodles home every day. He boiled them and that’s all we ate. I thought that no matter whether I wanted to eat it or not, I had to eat. It took all my energy to get up from bed to add coals to the stove so that the room would be warm. I began to sing some Falun Dafa songs I remembered.
I previously watched a DVD of Dafa songs, and the lyrics were from Hong Yin III. The other practitioners gave me some MP3 audio players with songs composed by practitioners. After I listened to them a few times, I remembered some of them. When my husband left for work and I was alone, I sang them over and over again. Sometimes I was so touched by the lyrics that tears came to my eyes. I understood that it took a tremendous amount of effort for Master to save us. Master, thank you!
During the singing, I felt that my mind was cleansed and my dimensional field purified. I continued to sing for a few days, and I recovered from my illness. When I was back to normal, I could go out to clarify the facts to people, study the Fa, do the exercises, and send forth righteous thoughts. Believe it or not, I was cured after singing the Dafa songs. This is a manifestation of Dafa’s power.
I gradually learned to sing many new songs. Each one of them sounded very nice and could be freely downloaded from the Internet. Some practitioners hum regular people’s songs, even the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) songs, which are full of negative substances. It’s great if we sing Dafa songs. Of course, we can’t go to extremes. Practitioners need to walk our paths correctly. We don’t have to use blocks of time; bits and pieces of time will do.
I think that as practitioners, we should sing Dafa songs if we want to sing, and browse the Minghui website when we go online. When we read, we should read Zhuan Falun. For non-practitioners, when they watch TV, it would be good if they watched the NTDTV programs, and when they read newspapers, they should read the Epoch Times. When they watch a show, they should watch Shen Yun. When they go online, they should check out the uncensored websites. When they read, they should read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, The Ultimate Goal of Communism, and How the Specter of Communism Is Ruling Our World.
Breaking Through a Tribulation Through Reciting the Fa
I recently overcame another illness karma tribulation. I was on my way home after group Fa-study on the afternoon of December 18, 2022. I felt a bit chilly, so when I got home I lay down and covered myself with blankets, but I felt worse. When I tried to send righteous thoughts at the global set time, I was shivering so hard that I couldn’t continue. I felt drowsy all night.
When I woke up the next day, I still felt dizzy and my body hurt. I could not eat, but I fell asleep. As soon as I woke up, I repeatedly recited, “On Dafa” and Hong Yin. I felt weak and didn’t feel like singing this time. No matter how terrible I felt, I read Zhuan Falun. After reading a few pages, I stopped and took a break. I kept going until I finished one lecture.
I felt better that night. I went to bed after I ate something. I sent forth righteous thoughts at midnight, then got up to do the exercises at 3 a.m. On the morning of December 20, when I did the third set of Dafa exercises – penetrating the two extremes, I felt my arms floating up and down by themselves. I experienced the state that Master talked about. I had never experienced this before! It was truly amazing! When I did the sitting meditation exercise I truly felt as if I was sitting in an eggshell. I also felt warm. That kind of feeling was just like what Master described. I was so happy!
I have practiced Dafa for so many years, but this is the first time I’ve had this feeling. Thank you, Master! Thank you for your saving grace! It’s truly great to be your disciple. I went out to clarify the facts about Dafa to people again on the 21st. Even though the street was empty, I still helped two people renounce their memberships in the CCP. I am determined to be more diligent.
I don’t know how to write sharing articles. Due to my limited level, please point out anything inappropriate.
Thank you, Master! Thank you, fellow practitioners!
