Amazing Recovery from Serious Burns
(Minghui.org) I am a 77-year-old female Falun Gong practitioner from a rural village to the west of Hebei Province. I would like to tell you how I recovered from serious burns in only 10 days. I hope that my experience will help raise awareness about the magnificence of Falun Gong, and its benefits. I hope everyone with a good heart will be endowed with a life of blessings and happiness.
It was in the summer of 2003, when China was plagued with the SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) epidemic. It was the busiest time of the harvest season, and my family was shorthanded. My son and daughter-in-law came to help harvest our wheat.
I was home alone making cookies on a coal-burning stove around noon. Before I could finish, I noticed that the stove was running out of fuel, so I grabbed some wood beside the stove and put it into the stove with one hand, while holding the frying pan filled with oil in the other. As I bent down to turn the stove handle, oil from the frying pan ran out onto the stove. A flame sprang up from the stove to the ceiling. The roar of the flames assailed my ears, and the heat scorched my face.
Bearing in mind that the kitchen was made of flammable materials that were quite out of date, I knew I must do something right away to put out the fire, even before I could assess myself. I picked up a nearby aluminum pot filled with water and poured it onto the stove. Fortunately, it was enough to put out the fire. I then turned to look at myself. I saw that my shirt was so burned that it had shrunk into small balls, my sleeve was entirely burned away, and my eyebrows were burned.
After a little while my children came home from their work and were astonished to see my condition. I told them what had happened and said to my two daughters-in-law, “You will cook today, I will go read my book.” I was not afraid at all and did not feel any pain. To my amazement, the burned part of my body felt like it had been dabbed with cooling ointment. I was quite confident that I would be fine because I was a Dafa practitioner.
After reading for a little while, I felt my face drawing up, and I was soon unable to see. The burn left a big blister on my head and some smaller ones on my arms. In his anxiety, my husband asked me to go to see a doctor, but I insisted that I did not want to go, knowing that I was in the process of eliminating karma.
The next day my youngest son came home to see me. He called out “Mother” when he entered my room. I responded, but I could not see him. I wondered where he was and thought it strange that I couldn't see him. I could not open my eyes as my eyelids had stuck to each other because of the blister on my face. I manually opened my eyelids and saw him leaning against the radiator, weeping. He felt so bad to see the condition I was in.
He said, “Mother, let's go to see a doctor.” I said, “No.” He said hastily, “If you do not go to the hospital, I can look after you for seven days at most, but I cannot miss work for too many days.” I said, “Don't worry--I will recover in less than a week. You can return to work in seven days.” He said, “No, you will not recover that fast.” I said, “Let us see then. Put your hand on my head to see if it is cool or fevered. You have been burned before, and you know how it was in your case.” He felt my head and exclaimed in surprise, “Mother, your head is cool.” I said, “That's right. That should convince you that I am not suffering from the burns at all, although I look quite bad. I am a cultivator, and I am eliminating karma through this, so do not worry as I will be fine. Do not ask me to go to the hospital anymore.”
After a while I said to him that I wanted to go see our sow, who had just had piglets, but he insisted that I should not go, saying, “I will look after everything, so you do not need to worry about it.” I stayed home and rested in bed. In the afternoon fluid began to flow out of the blister below my cheekbone. The fluid was viscous, and the towel I used to drain it was soon fully soaked, so I had to get a new one. The blister drained for more than 24 hours. However, I remained calm as I knew Master was cleansing my body. Perhaps I would take on a new and better look after the filthy elements in my body were purged.
On the fourth day the fluid was drained and a scab formed over the blister. After that it began to itch so unbearably that I could not help picking at it all the time. Very soon the scab began to peel off. I used a mirror to pick off all the scab. The skin on my face was shiny red. When my children came home from work they exclaimed in astonishment, “Mother, how strange you look.” I said, “I am fine. It was very itchy, but that it was a good sign. I peeled off the scab and it was fine.” After a while the itching was gone, just as I had expected.
On the tenth day my elder son came home, saying, “Auntie heard that you were burned and she wants to see you. Can you go see her?” I said I would. He drove me to my sister's on his motorcycle. When she saw me she said in surprise, “Sister, weren't you burned? Your face looks fine, so where is the burn?” I said, “Take a closer look.” However, she still could not see the burn. I rolled up my sleeves and said, “Look here, two blisters on my arms. They quickly broke and released a lot of fluid, but I did not have pain.” She said, “I will call our older sister and ask her to see you.”
My older sister is also a Falun Gong practitioner. When she saw me she said, “From your appearance I can tell that you are truly cultivating very well, as you are so healthy and you look good. Your face that used to be tanned is now reddish white, and looks very pleasant. Do your arms hurt? ” She could tell I had been injured from the scar left from the broken blisters on my arms. I then told her what had happened to me. She said, “There are no traces of the burn on your face, and no scar at all. You even look better than before. Let's go to our nephew to tell him your story, so that they will see the power of Dafa.” We went to see our nephew. Everyone there was convinced of the magnificence of Dafa. After I returned home, all traces left from the burn were completely gone.
My story is truly remarkable. Could I have been healed in ten days if I had gone to the hospital? If I had, I might have ended up suffering a lot and being left with an ugly scar on my face. I wrote my story as a testimony to the magnificence of Falun Gong.
My husband had suffered from many diseases like cervical pains, protrusion of the lumbar disc, and piles. He was very feeble and he could not work. After he began practicing Falun Gong, he recovered very soon, without taking any medicine. He is 74 years old and I am 77. We have about six acres of land and breed two cows. Every day he is busy ploughing the land on his tractor but he never feels tired. Nothing can be more valuable than good health, and we are so blessed by Dafa!
The above is my true experience. I hope people with good hearts will come to know the beauty of Dafa from my story. I wish all good people happiness and peace.
