(Minghui.org) As a physician and a Falun Dafa practitioner, I have witnessed the power of Dafa during my 22 years of cultivation. I would like to recount one such experience—when a local practitioner came back to life overnight after the doctor had told the family to prepare for her funeral.
In the past, this practitioner had severe dilated heart disease and heart failure. In the late stage, her body was so swollen, she could not even put her arms down. Finally, the hospital could do nothing more for her and told her family to take her home. Her husband heard that Falun Dafa was very good, so he took her to learn the exercises. Within a short time, she could go to the Fa-study by herself. When she recovered from her heart disease symptoms, she could help with the family business selling produce.
She gradually slacked off in her cultivation after the persecution started in 1999 because she could no longer attend group Fa-study. The heart disease symptoms returned, and her family took her to the hospital when it became severe. She was usually able to return home after a few days in the hospital.
Then, in 2008, a practitioner who lived near her called me to visit her in the hospital. I said I was busy right then but could go the following day. The practitioner said I had to go immediately. I realized it was urgent and asked another practitioner to come with me to visit her in the hospital.
We saw her husband in the corridor outside the ICU. He told us that his wife had not eaten anything for nearly 10 days, and the doctor had told the family to prepare for her funeral. He took us to the head nurse and asked that we be allowed to visit the patient. The nurse at first refused, saying the patient couldn’t tolerate mood swings. Her husband insisted that we were the people the patient wanted to see, so we were finally allowed to visit her, one at a time, for five minutes only.
I saw she was attached to an IV, an oxygen cannula, and heart monitoring wires. She was very weak and could barely speak, “I didn’t cultivate well. I didn’t pass the tribulation test.”
I said, “It is good since you see the problem yourself. You can cultivate your xinxing even though you are lying in bed.
I reminded her that Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, said,
“No matter what it is you've experienced, as soon as you realize the problem just correct it immediately; if you fall, just get up and continue to do what a Dafa disciple should do.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Vancouver, Canada, in 2003,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. II)
“It is because in another dimension there lies a being in that place. That being is in a very deep dimension.” (Lecture Seven, Zhuan Falun)
I added, “Think about it. When you are in pain, isn’t it that being that is responsible for your pain? You can’t allow it to be comfortable in its dimension. You can send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate it. You can recite the Fa, any sentence you can remember. If you can’t bear it, ask Master to strengthen you.”
She was too weak to speak and just blinked her eyes to tell me that she understood.
I visited her again the following day. In the corridor, I noticed the three strangers her husband had called in to help with the funeral arrangements were gone. I went into her ward and saw that she was sitting up in bed eating some cherry tomatoes. All the tubes and wires were gone. It was nothing short of a miracle that someone on death’s door could have revived in such a short time. I was sure that she had been reciting the Fa, sending forth righteous thoughts, and asking help from Master since last night.
She was happy to see me and we talked for a short while. Her eyes were wet when she said, “Thanks to Master, I am alive again! I will be diligent when I return home.”
Her husband said emotionally, “Falun Dafa is so amazing and so incredible!” I thought it was amazing, too.
“…When disciples have ample righteous thoughtsMaster has the power to turn back the tide”(“The Master-Disciple Bond,” Hong Yin Volume II)
Shortly after this practitioner returned home, her niece needed help to host a feast to celebrate her newborn baby’s one-month birthday. Other relatives were busy, so she agreed to help her niece. Her younger sister (the mother of this niece) asked if her health would allow her to help out, as she had been so sick recently. She said she was fine.
Her brother-in-law, the father of this niece, drove the practitioner and her husband to the niece’s house over 100 kilometers away. She helped out and returned home the following day.
On the way back, her brother-in-law said, “Sister, Falun Dafa is truly amazing. Anyone else would be exhausted after such a busy day and traveling such a long distance. But you even had a brush with death not long ago. I truly respect Falun Dafa!”
This practitioner had asked her relatives to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations before, but a few refused to. After they witnessed her recovery, they all agreed to quit the Party.
