(Minghui.org) In this article, a 72-year-old woman shares her miraculous experiences in Falun Dafa cultivation practice.

How I Began Practicing Falun Dafa

One day in April 1997, one of my ankles was suddenly dislocated and I could hardly walk. I went to get it repositioned three times, but it didn’t work. My daughter took me to get massage treatment, but it only aggravated the swelling and pain. I was then taken to a hospital for an X-ray, and the doctor said I had a fracture in the bone and sent me home with some medication. Not long after, my other foot became swollen too, and I became completely bedridden. I was bored and in pain.

Not knowing what to do, the book Zhuan Falun came to mind. My cousin had given me a copy of it some time earlier. I asked my daughter to get it out for me. I was stunned when I opened the book. It was shining like gold, with beautiful colors. Each character in the book was big and circled with a line, which kept changing color, from red to green and from green to red. I was extremely excited: This is truly a book from heaven, a truly precious book!

I could not stop reading it, and when I read the paragraph about Master planting a Falun in us, I felt something in my lower abdominal area rotating very fast. When I read the part about Master cleaning out practitioners’ bodies, I started to have diarrhea myself.

In just two days, my feet were completely back to normal and I could ride my bicycle and do all kinds of chores. It was truly miraculous! Furthermore, all my chronic illnesses, such as nephritis, hematuria and rheumatoid arthritis, all disappeared. I have not needed to take a single tablet or have any injection since then. I had fully regained my health!

Master opened my celestial eye as soon as I started practicing Falun Gong, and I have seen many wonderful scenes. When I was watching Master’s Fa lectures, I saw Master turn into a golden Buddha one moment and back to his human form the next. When I was doing the exercises with fellow practitioners on a local square, I saw we were surrounded by a golden belt, about 20 cm in diameter, just like what Master said in Zhuan Falun,

“Many of our people with supernormal abilities have seen that this Falun Dafa site is shielded by a red light so it is red all around.”

I also saw that every practitioner had a shining circle above his/her head; when I was reading the Fa or doing the exercises, I often saw some little animals coming close to me, with their eyes wide open and listening attentively.

I began to see beings everywhere, on the floor, on the table, even inside the concrete floor. Some big, some small, and they were running around everywhere. Some were in human form, as small as 20-30 cm tall, and others were in other forms. I also saw a great variety of lives everywhere. Sometimes, I wanted to catch them or step on them, but I couldn’t. Later I understood that they were lives in other dimensions. Master said in Zhuan Falun,

“In addition to human beings and animals, plants are also lives. In other dimensions any substance can manifest life.”

Master’s Protection

In July 1999, while I was doing the sitting meditation, I saw a large amount of black substances pressing down from other dimensions. I didn’t know what was happening at the time. Soon after, Jiang Zemin started the persecution of Falun Gong.

I was determined to keep practicing Falun Gong no matter what happened. I also wanted to go to Beijing to validate the Fa, but was called back at the railway station by a practitioner, who told me that Master had written a new article and we needed to print it out and pass it to fellow practitioners. So I took up the responsibility to pass on Master's new article to practitioners living dozens of miles away.

Even though the evil persecution was rampant, I didn't run into any problems.

Once I went to two villages to distribute materials. A Party secretary in a village said to me, “Don’t come here again. The police want to arrest you.” I replied with confidence, “No, they can’t.” As I was walking along the road with a bag of Master’s new articles, a lady on a motor bike came up to me and asked if I was a Falun Gong practitioner. I said, “Yes.” Then she took me through the two villages, and we gave Master’s new article to all the practitioners there. Everything went smoothly with Master's protection.

Suppressing the Evil

In May 2003, a fellow practitioner at our truth-clarification materials production site was illegally arrested. Later I was arrested too, and taken to a detention center.

My body temperature shot up to 39° C as soon as I arrived at the detention center, and it would drop down to 36º when I was brought back to the police station. I was taken to the detention center twice a day and my temperature went up and down each time.

Fifteen days later, the police sent me to a brainwashing center. I sat on the floor and recited the Fa every day. Many fellow practitioners told me that the security guards and their helpers were very vicious. But none of them bothered me. I understood that it was the power of Dafa that dissolved the evil elements behind them, and that was why they had become powerless.

Later I was released on bail with the help of people in my village, who appealed for my release.

When practitioners started to sue Jiang Zemin, there were rumors in our area that many practitioners would be persecuted. When I was doing the sitting meditation, I saw a name list through my celestial eye, and my name was on it, too. I knew that the evil wanted to do bad things again, so I started sending righteous thoughts to negate all the evil arrangements. I also shared with fellow practitioners, and we understood on the basis of the Fa that only what Master says counts, and that as Dafa disciples we only follow what Master told us to do. We clarified the facts to relevant personnel via various channels, and at the same time intensified our sending righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil. In the end, we successfully dismantled the evil arrangements and continued to do the three things steadily.

It has been almost 20 years since I started cultivation in Dafa. I’m only an ordinary housewife, yet I have witnessed numerous miraculous incidents. Master has opened the way for sentient beings in all dimensions to return home. Let us cherish this precious opportunity.
