Stories from My Journey: The Wonder and Power of Dafa
(Minghui.org) During the more than 20 years I've practiced Falun Dafa, I've experienced Dafa's wonder and power. I would like to share a few of my experiences with you.
Painful Corns Disappear
One evening after sending righteous thoughts, I planned to go out and distribute truth clarification flyers. When I stood up, a sudden sharp pain on the bottom of both my feet made me sit back down. There were corns on both of my feet. They hurt if I walked a lot, but never this badly.
What should I do? I told myself, “Nothing can stop me from saving people. I will go out.”
I took the flyers and walked out of the building, limping. I focused on distributing the flyers and I soon forgot about my pain. When I finished, I realized my feet no longer hurt. When I returned home, I checked my feet—the corns were gone and never returned!
Master Helps Me
It was drizzling one winter morning when I went out to talk to people about Falun Dafa. By the time I headed home that evening a thin layer of ice covered the ground. It was slippery as I tried to push my bicycle up the steps on a bridge.
Halfway up, one step was much higher and I couldn't push my bicycle up. I couldn't go back either since it was too slippery. I stood there, holding the bicycle and I dared not move. I wished some passer-by would give me a hand.
Suddenly, the bicycle started to move on its own. I carefully moved along with it. I thought someone was behind me, helping me, but I dared not turn around and look. Holding my breath, my bicycle and I moved upward step by step.
When I reached the top, I took a long breath. I turned around to thank whoever helped me but—no one was there!
I burst into tears. I immediately understood that Master protected me and helped me!
Saving People During the Pandemic
When the CCP virus (coronavirus) began spreading, I knew I should hurry to save more sentient beings. While I was out one day, I noticed a young lady on the street. When I walked towards her she saw me and hurried away to avoid me. What should I do? It would look odd if I ran after her.
At that moment, she reached into her pocket for her phone. When she took her phone out, some money fell out. She didn't notice and continued walking.
“Lady! You dropped your money!” I shouted after her. She turned around. “Thank you auntie!” she smiled and walked back to pick up the money.
“I'm not asking for your thanks,” I smiled back. “I want to tell you something important.” I began to tell her how she can keep herself safe during the pandemic. She listened carefully. In the end, she happily agreed to withdraw from the communist Youth League and Young Pioneers. She also said she would remember “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
I know that Master arranged this opportunity.
“A Good Person Like You Should Live More than 100 Years!”
Several female workers were painting the hallway of my building. I asked them if they needed anything, such as water or to wash their hands. I invited them to come to my apartment to use the restroom instead of going to the public restroom far away.
They were very touched and said, “A good person like you should live more than 100 years!”
I wanted to tell them the truth and save them. I told them I practice Falun Dafa. I told them the basic facts about Dafa and why millions of Chinese had already withdrawn from the CCP. They listened carefully while they worked. They asked me some questions. Then all of them asked me to give them nicknames to withdraw from Youth League and Young Pioneers.
I then told them many people feel blessed after saying, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”. I told them to pass this message to their family members, friends, and neighbors. They were very happy and kept saying “Thank you!”
I said they should thank Falun Dafa's founder.
When I got back home, I saw my fingers were glowing with layers of colorful lights. I knew Master was encouraging me!
The Surveillance Camera Doesn't Work
I was detained at the Liaoning Province Women Prison, and the prison cell had a 360-degree rotating surveillance camera. I wasn't afraid. Whenever I passed it, I sent a strong thought: “Stop working!”
While the others watched TV in the evenings, I meditated.
In 2014, two prisoners escaped so the guards tightened prison controls. Prisoners were required to use white sheets and white comforter covers. I kept my flower-patterned bed sheet and cover. The cell head said, “You refuse to use a white sheet. What if the officer sees this through the surveillance camera?”
“The surveillance camera won't work,” I said peacefully.
One day, a section chief came to our cell and saw my sheet was not white. He yelled at the cell head. The cell head did not say anything. I had told her about Falun Dafa and the persecution and she knew the truth.
Soon, a group of workers were sent over to repair the camera. While they tried to repair it, I kept sending righteous thoughts. They were unable to repair it. In the end, they replaced the broken camera with a new one.
Whenever I passed the new camera, I sent this thought: “Stop working!”
Two months later, another worker came. He said the camera was not working so he came to repair it. I heard the worker calling and talking to someone in the monitor room. The person on the other end kept saying the picture was not clear. The worker said, “We've already installed a new one, but it's still not working.” The person on the other end said, “Forget about it then.”
No one came back to try to repair the camera or replace it.
It was like what Master said in a poem:
“When disciples have ample righteous thoughtsMaster has the power to turn back the tide” (“The Master-Disciple Bond”, Hong Yin Vol. II)
“ It's a Miracle!”--Recovering from a Bad Fall
When I was detained in November 2017, I slipped on the wet floor while washing dishes. The back of my head hit the ground and I lost consciousness.
When I came to, I was surrounded by people. I tried to move, but couldn't. My entire body hurt badly, even my internal organs were in severe pain. I felt like my body had fallen apart.
I heard someone say, “Let's get a stretcher and take her to a hospital.” I said, “No, I will not go.” They asked, “Will you be all right without going to hospital?” I replied, “Certainly.”
I thought, “My back is injured.” After a while, all the pain stopped except my back kept hurting. For the next two weeks I was unable to sit up or turn over in bed.
I kept sending righteous thoughts and looking inward. One day I remembered that it was my wrong thought: “My back is injured.” Haven't I been acknowledging it by lying in bed?
Gritting my teeth, I immediately sat up by leaning on the wall. I repeated what Master said,
“I'm Li Hongzhi's disciple, I don't want other arrangements or acknowledge them"--then they won't dare to do that. So it can all be resolved.” (“Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference”)
“We negate even the very emergence of the old forces and everything that they've arranged; we don't even acknowledge their existence.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Chicago Conference”)
I sent righteous thoughts. Meanwhile, I asked Master to give me strength. About ten minutes later, I heard three clicking sounds in my spine. The pain vanished instantly. Master resolved my issue!
I stood up. The others were shocked: “You recovered?!” I smiled and nodded.
“Wow, with such a bad injury, you recovered so fast without any medical treatment,” an inmate said. “It's a miracle!”
I've experienced many amazing things during my cultivation. Sometimes the characters in Zhuan Falun turned gold; I've also seen flying celestial maidens; sometimes the pages in Zhuan Falun turned into different, beautiful colors. Once, a Buddha, a Tao, and an immortal came out from the book.
I know that Dafa is merciful, majestic, extraordinary, and magic. Master is always here to protect me.
“Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s master.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)
