(Minghui.org) This year, Shen Yun came back to Australia and performed in seven cities. I was selling tickets in a shopping mall on February 4 with our local coordinator. She received an urgent text message that Shen Yun was about to perform in another city, but there was a sudden power outrage that affected that whole city! The show was scheduled for 2pm, but the local utility company said that the power would not be restored until around 5pm.

The main coordinator of the Australian Shen Yun tour sent out an urgent text message that every Australian practitioner be notified about the power outage and asked to send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the interference.

When I initially heard the news, I felt so helpless. What could we do with only a few minutes until it was time for the show to start? I knew that the evil factors behind the outage must be extremely vicious. My tears were gathering, ready to run down my face, but deep inside, I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil interference!

I gathered myself together, just stood there and forced my mind to be calm. I held the thought “Completely eliminate all evil factors interfering with Shen Yun performances, encompassing all of it.” Then I recited Master's Fa-rectification verses. I was very focused and felt that my entire body was surrounded by an energy that was growing stronger and stronger.

Suddenly a picture appeared in my mind. A silver dragon with blood red eyes had been knocked to the ground. The powerful righteous thoughts being sent out by practitioners all over Australia were just like hammers, pounding the dragon. Finally, it spit out blood and died. The way its head and body had been pounded by the power of practitioners' righteous thoughts played over and over in my mind.

I stood still there, quietly sending forth righteous thoughts. My mind was empty.

Within five minutes, the coordinator sent out a new message. The power was back on! Shen Yun would perform on time!

I really feel that from the moment the message that the power was received, every one of our Australian practitioners’ hearts were together. When we collectively sent forth righteous thoughts, the energy emitted created a magnificent field. It must have been a scene beyond description in other dimensions; truly shaking the ten directional world. Through this event I came to realize the awesome power of practitioners righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil completely.

It was just like what Master said:

“Dafa Disciples’ Righteous Thoughts are Powerful” (Essentials for Further Advancement II)

“...if your righteous thoughts are strong, the power is enough to split a mountain—just one thought will do it.” (“What is a Dafa Disciple” from Teaching the Fa at the Conference XI)

Sending forth righteous thoughts is one of the three things that a Dafa practitioner must do. Yet in the past, I didn't really pay enough attention to sending forth righteous thoughts. But after this experience, I came to realize how powerful our righteous thoughts truly are, and just how important it is to send forth righteous thoughts. When every one of us Australian practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil that was interfering, it died!
