(Minghui.org) Dafa has changed me from being an atheist to a cultivator, from someone who suffered from countless sicknesses to a healthy soul who is filled with happiness, and from an ordinary person to someone with high morality who puts others first.

In my 24 years of cultivation, Master Li Hongzhi has put in so much compassionate effort on my behalf. My relatives have also benefited immensely.

As a disciple, I have no adequate words to express my gratitude towards Master.

Celestial Beings Appear

The moment I decided to take up Falun Dafa cultivation, celestial beings appeared in front of me. I then realized Master was already taking care of me, allowing me, an atheist, to see divine beings with my own eyes.

From childhood, I was educated in atheism and did not believe in anything. However, I was puzzled by many things in life. For example, I often wondered, “Why do humans live in this world? If Gods and Buddhas do not exist, where do the words God and Buddha come from? Why do these two words exist at all?” I was baffled.

In my thirties, I developed more and more physical problems. I had neurasthenia, lumbar vertebra hyperosteogeny, sciatica, kidney deficiency, and pelvic inflammatory disease.

I used over 40 packets of herbal medicines prescribed by a famous doctor, but it had no effect. I was afraid of wearing short sleeves in summer. This was especially the case when I sweat under a breeze. The unspeakable agony in my arms made me feel that I would rather have them amputated.

I visited many major hospitals in Beijing and the provincial capital, seeking medical treatment everywhere. I tried Chinese medicine, Western medicine, acupuncture, massage, and qigong, but none of them had much effect.

As I was seeking treatment, I came to a realization that the human body possesses inherent supernormal abilities and that one can cultivate into a divine being.

One day, I thought that when I retire, I would go to a deep forest in some remote mountain to practice cultivation. Just with the flash of this thought, an extremely beautiful scene appeared in front of me: I saw a large circle that was so clear and translucent. Inside the circle were coconut trees and a fairy in white, with a fairy child on her right and another on her left.

I was stunned. I stared at it for a while until it disappeared. I wanted to see it again, but I could not. Because I didn’t have any concept of Gods since I was young, I didn't know who they were. I was later told that I saw Bodhisattva Guanyin and that the fairies on her sides were the Golden Boy and Jade Girl.

After Obtaining Dafa, I Grew Stronger Through Tribulations

May 2, 1996 is an unforgettable day in my life. On that day, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Dafa, which someone might not come across in eons.

From that day, I began watching Master Li's lecture videos. After watching the nine lectures, my worldview underwent a fundamental change. I was enlightened on all the things that used to puzzle me. I was so excited!

I was confident that whoever encountered such a good practice would want to learn it, so I told everyone I met, as well as relatives and friends, to come and learn Dafa.

When I first began the sitting meditation, I felt my body grow bigger and bigger. It was fascinating! The extraordinary states that manifest in Dafa cultivation kept showing up within me, just as Master described.

I cultivated my mind to be compassionate in accordance with Dafa’s requirements of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and practiced the five sets of exercises. Beyond my expectation, all my health problems were gone before long.

Even my problems of over-hydration and severe motion sickness were gone. From that day, for more than 20 years I have not needed to take medicine or visit hospitals.

I no longer have to avoid air conditioning, electric fans, the wind, sun, or rain. I can now take care of the elderly and grandchildren and feel that the greatest joy in life is to be healthy and in a good mood.

On July 20, 1999, the head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), Jiang Zemin, launched the harsh persecution of Falun Dafa. Under Master’s compassionate protection, I have prevailed over many hardships, one after another.

The supernatural power of Dafa constantly manifested in me. To give an example, I was once arrested for my faith. I protested against the illegal detention by going on a hunger strike for eight days and nights. Not only did I feel no discomfort, but when I recited the Fa or recited the verses for sending righteous thoughts, I entered an extremely tranquil state (ding). It was just like what Master described,

“There is another state in which as one sits for a while, one finds that the legs are gone, and cannot think where the legs went; the body is also gone; the arms are also gone; the hands are also gone—only the head is left. As one keeps practicing, one finds that the head is gone as well, leaving only one’s own mind, a little thought that one is practicing here.” (Lecture Eight in Zhuan Falun)

During my time in the detention center, the officers asked other prisoners to carry me out for force feedings with a tube. Looking at the officers and the prisoners, I felt sad.

I tearfully told them, “We are not doing things for our own sake. People are morally corrupt and facing danger, and we are here to help you be safe. I don’t want to see you participating in the persecution of Dafa disciples. It’s not good for you.”

I then asked Master to metamorphose me into a karma elimination state. In an instant, my whole body began convulsing.

They put me on a bed, and a prison doctor listened to my heartbeat and took my blood pressure. He repeatedly called my name, and I eventually responded. I was told not to move because I was in shock. They were not able to conduct the force feeding after all.

Subsequently, they tried to do an IV on me but failed because they couldn’t find a blood vessel. I was discharged shortly thereafter.

Unscathed in a Near-Fatal Accident

It was past 10 p.m. on March 6, 2002, and I was riding my bike home from a friend's house where I stayed to avoid being harassed by the police.

A motorcycle was coming from behind at high speed and hit me on the right side of the road. I fell in front of the motorcycle, and the rider fell into the edge of a wheat field.

I immediately got up and glanced around. There was no sign of my bicycle, and one of my shoes was gone.

It was very dark, so I bent over to search. I found my shoe and the bike basket in the middle of the road. The bicycle was on the opposite side of the road 5 or 6 meters away from me.

The driver did not move at all. I told to him, “How are you?” He didn't make a sound.

I didn’t know what happened to him, but I couldn’t leave him alone, as there were very few cars passing by at that time. I wanted to hitchhike to get him to the hospital, but the cars drove around me and none of them stopped.

I stood there for a while until he moved. I quickly stepped forward to help him and kept saying, “I practice Falun Dafa, and my Master told us to be good people. I'm fine, and I wouldn't trouble you with anything in any way.”

He didn't say a word, and I helped him lift up the motorcycle. We could hear the fuel flowing out from a puncture in the tank. He then told me that his headlamp was broken and he couldn't see me in time.

A car happened to pass by, and when the headlights illuminated everything, I saw the motorcyclist was a young man; he also saw me.

He said emotionally, “Ma'am, I’m so lucky to meet such a good person like you. Otherwise, I would have had to go to the hospital with you regardless of what happened to me.”

I told him Dafa requires us to be good people under all circumstances and that our Master asks us to consider others first.

I also mentioned, “What has been reported on TV about Falun Dafa was all fabricated. Nothing is true, so please don’t ever listen to the propaganda in the media.”

I was trying to walk my bike, but the wheels didn't turn. I squatted beside the bike and pet it with my hand, thinking that with Master taking care of me, the bicycle shouldn't be like that. I stood up and tried again, and the wheels turned. I was able to ride home.

After I told my husband about the collision, I confided, “If not for practicing Dafa, I might have lost my life today.”

My mother told me she had a dream the night before in which a knife stabbed into the door of my house. It was said to be coming for me and was meant as one of my tribulations.

The next morning, my husband walked around the bicycle, looking at it again and again. There was no sign of it being hit, not even a dent to the rear basket, except for the taillight being knocked out.

Nothing was wrong with me, my shoes, or clothes. He laughed in amazement, as he once again witnessed the miracle of Dafa.

Reciting the Auspicious Phrases Manifests Miracles

On June 28, 2013, we hired someone to do the steel roof for our house, and they needed to use high-voltage electricity.

It was around eight in the morning, and my husband was climbing on a metal ladder to install a wire to the electrical switch three meters above.

There was a wasp nest there, so he knocked it down. While he was connecting the wire, a wasp suddenly flew in front of him. He unwittingly tilted his head and shifted his hand. With a bang, the wire caught fire. He immediately chanted, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” while jumping off the ladder.

Our neighbor came out upon hearing the noise. They saw the that skin on the back of my husband's hand was burnt, with some places charred or blistered, and all the finger nails on his left hand were black.

I asked if he was okay. He didn't seem to be bothered a bit, told me he was fine, and kept working on the wiring.

The neighbor told him to see a doctor or his hand wouldn't be healed. But he finished the wiring and went on to other jobs as usual.

In the evening, I looked at the back of his hand and asked, “Does it hurt?” He said, “Just briefly at the beginning.”

I asked, “You must have been reciting the two phrases?” He said yes.

It was very hot then, and he was afraid of being infected, so he started applying some burn ointment. After three or four days, his hand did not seem to get any better.

I said to him, “There is no medicine that can keep you from pain, so I would suggest you stop using it and just keep reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good.’” He did as I suggested. After two or three days, his hand was pretty much back to normal.

On the ninth day, it was completely healed. When I saw him washing something under the water pipe, I asked, “How’s your hand?” He said, “Totally fine now.”

This is simply unimaginable from a medical point of view!

In late July 2013, he was replacing old window panes. When he tried to take the old glass outside, he accidentally hit the glass on the inside of his calf and punctured his artery.

I was in the yard at the time and heard him calling, “Come quickly! My big blood vessel broke!” As I rushed inside, I told him to recite “Falun Dafa is good” immediately.

I saw his hand was on his calf; the lower part of his calf was full of blood, and his shoes and socks were all soaked in red as well.

I got gauze and cotton balls to dress the wound. He was still bleeding, but the flow lessened a lot after reciting the phrases. The next day, he climbed up the ladder to clean the water pipes.

I asked him how his leg was, and he said, “Oh, I almost forgot about it. I only felt three pulses of pain at noon. That's because Master was healing my wound.”

I asked, “Didn't you remember to recite the two phrases when it happened?”

He replied, “For such a big wound, the blood was gushing out at first, and I thought you would for sure take me to the hospital. But you told me to recite the phrases immediately. I did it, and the bleeding became much slower.”

About half a month later, he removed the gauze. The wound was about 1.5 cm (about 0.6 inches) long, and it had healed very well.

I have been cultivating for 24 years, am in good health, and have never used any medicine. My husband witnessed the miraculous phenomena of Dafa and has benefited a lot. He has hardly needed medicine either.

Once he had a backache and couldn't pick up a bucket of water. He was diagnosed as a having lumbar intervertebral disc protrusion and given a prescription, but he did not use it. He just sincerely recited the two auspicious phrases and recovered in a few days.

He has not yet started practicing Falun Dafa, but he is very respectful to Master. Whenever we purchased fresh fruit, if I was away, he would always offer them first to Master while burning incense.
