Handling Police Raids with Righteous Thoughts
(Clearwisdom.net) I started the practice of Falun Gong in 1998 and have experienced many miracles from the practice. I used to be well known for being a sickly person and suffered from various illnesses, such as arthritis, insomnia, headaches, dizziness, cystitis, pharyngitis, and more. All these conditons disappeared after I started to practice.
After the persecution started on July 20, 1999, my whole family still supported me in continuing to practice Falun Gong, and my husband, my son and daughter-in-law, my daughter, and my elder sister all helped me distribute information materials about Falun Gong and they have all benefited from doing so. For the past nine years, we have never stopped doing this. Each time I went out to distribute flyers, I would first stand in front of Master's photo and press my hands together in the heshi gesture of respect. I would ask Master to strengthen me to clear out all the evil factors that were damaging Dafa where I was going, so that all sentient beings in those places would be saved. Each time I came home safe and sound.
In 2007, I set up a material production site in my home. Soon afterward, the evil started to interfere. One day in August at around 4:00 p.m., five police officers broke into my house and started searching. I was not afraid for my personal safety at all, but I was very worried in my heart about the material site. I asked Master to help save our material site. At the same I kept sending forth righteous thoughts to clear out all the evil factors behind the police. There are five rooms in the house and the police searched four of them. They did not dare to go into the room where we produce Falun Gong materials.
In July of this year, one day it was about 6 o'clock in the evening. I had just gotten home from working in the fields, when about six police officers broke into my house again. At that time, my Falun Gong books and some information materials were lying out in the open in three places. I thought, "I must not let the police take them away. The materials are for saving sentient beings. I must face this situation with divine righteous thoughts and clear out all the evil factors controlling the police." I asked Master to protect the books and the materials. As a result, the police searched everywhere, but could not find anything. They left my home, feeling dejected.
