(Minghui.org) My sister was diagnosed with cancer several years ago. She couldn’t afford medical treatment, so she started to practice Falun Dafa. Through practicing Dafa, all of her diseases went away. However, my brother-in-law and nephew didn’t really acknowledge the healing power of Falun Dafa.

In spring of 2020, seven years after my sister started practicing Falun Dafa, her illness reappeared. When her family urged her to go to the hospital, she refused at first but gradually became unsure. I encouraged her to view the sickness karma as a cultivator, but her family, especially her son, were strongly opposed. My brother-in-law stood on the side of his son.

My sister had endured a lot of domestic violence during her marriage. She caved to the pressure from her husband and son and eventually went to the hospital. During the time she was ill, her son often came to my home and made a tremendous fuss. He even threatened to throw me in prison.

My sister’s condition didn’t improve after several rounds of medical treatment. She took medicine and did the Falun Dafa exercises after she was released from hospital. Her son forced her to take the medicine, but her health still deteriorated.

My brother-in-law was then diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer, and after a few months he could hardly walk. I realized that his bad comments about Falun Dafa had incurred karma, so I wanted to further clarify the truth about Falun Dafa to him. I hesitated to go to see him because I assumed that he and his son would become angry when they saw me.

When my husband came home during the Chinese New Year this year, he wanted to go see my brother-in-law, so I decided to go with him. Before the visit, I begged Master to help me get rid of my human notions and save my brother-in-law.

We went over to their house and started chatting with my brother-in-law. My sister told me that she had been telling her husband to repeat “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I encouraged him to repeat these phrases sincerely and to watch videos about Dafa. He said he couldn’t take in what the videos were saying. I asked him, “Have you said bad things about Master?” He replied that he hadn’t. I asked, “Have you said anything negative?” He nodded. “Would you like me to write a solemn declaration to apologize to Master?” He said he wanted me to do that on his behalf.

A few days later, my sister and brother-in-law went to visit their daughter in town. They invited me to meet them there. When I saw them, I noticed that my sister looked much better. I asked my brother-in-law if he wanted me to help him quit all of the Communist Party organizations that he had joined. He said he wanted to quit. I told him several real-life stories about how people had restored their health by repeating “Falun Dafa is good.”

When I called my sister today, she told me happily that her husband had a dream after they got home. In the dream, several people pulled him up to heaven, where he saw a Tathagata with curly hair. Many people sat below the Tathagata. He looked for a place to sit and spotted one in the corner, but he woke up before he could sit down. My brother-in-law told my sister about his dream. My sister was happy to hear it, and told him in tears that Master had started taking care of him. Ever since that day, my brother-in-law’s health has improved. He can now walk and eat much better.

I looked inward and realized that my notions had blocked me from saving him earlier. I must have many other notions that I still haven’t realized. In other words, various notions have blocked Dafa disciples from saving sentient beings. If we don’t cultivate well, it affects not only ourselves but also the salvation of sentient beings.
