(Minghui.org) As Dafa practitioners, we came to this world to safeguard and validate the Fa. Only when we are in line with the Fa, the power and miracles of the Fa will make themselves known. I have practiced Falun Dafa for more than 20 years and have experienced many ordeals. But, the Fa is always in my heart.

Recovering from Sickness Symptoms

My husband asked me to get up to do the exercises with him one morning. I felt cold, dizzy and had no strength. My body was covered with small red bumps. I was muddle-headed, but my main consciousness was very clear. I knew it was an illusion. My body was as solid as a diamond, and nothing bad would happen to me. I recited Master’s Fa in my heart again and again. 

Master said,

“After all, a cultivator is not an ordinary human. So why doesn’t the side of you that is your original nature rectify the Fa?” (“Expounding on the Fa,” Essentials for Further Advancement

“So your human side must stay aware. More importantly, your side that has attained the Fa must be clear.” (“Expounding on the Fa,” Essentials for Further Advancement

“In fact, Dafa is not only to save human beings—it is also taught to all beings in the various dimensions. Your enlightened, original nature will automatically know what to do.” (“Expounding on the Fa,” Essentials for Further Advancement

I am a disciple who assists Master in the Fa rectification. I exist with the Fa. I must let my original nature be instrumental when rectifying the Fa. I would not allow the illusion to exist. Then, the red bumps disappeared. All symptoms disappeared as if nothing had happened. My husband was stunned when witnessing this. 

I stayed with a practitioner who had a tumor in her breast one summer day. I studied the Fa with her in the afternoon and evening, and sent forth righteous thoughts for her late at night. I went back home in the early morning and slept for about an hour before I was going out to clarify the truth to people with my husband. I stretched my waist when getting up and found my left breast swollen, and painful. I found an egg-sized tumor in my breast. Then a thought came into my mind: the bad thing came to you and how did you handle it? My left arm became numb, bloated and painful. Fear was spreading into my whole body. I panicked and asked my husband to send righteous thoughts for me. 

We sent righteous thoughts for an hour. I constantly corrected his posture in case he dozed off or did not concentrate. I looked outward and relied on him completely. I didn’t have righteous thoughts at that moment. One hour later, he wanted to leave. I asked him to keep helping me. He said: “This is only your suspicion!” Oh, yes. He was right. The word “suspicion” reminded me of Master’s Fa.

Master said,

“There is another type of person. Someone was told in the past that he had spirit or animal possession. He felt that way as well. However, upon having it removed for him, his mind still worries about it. He always thinks that the condition still exists. He still thinks that it is there, and this is already an attachment called suspicion. As time passes, this person may bring it to himself again. One should give up this attachment, as this spirit or animal possession no longer exists.” (Lecture Three, Zhuan Falun)

Master had cleared our names from the list in hell. Thus, this should not happen. This was my suspicion. It didn’t belong to me and I didn’t want it. 

But a thought in my mind told me to touch my breast and see if the tumor was still there. I knew that this was not my thought. The illusion wanted me to acknowledge, its existence. I warmed my hands and arms and said: “You are part of my body – I am your boss. The tumor is an illusion. I don’t acknowledge it. You shouldn’t acknowledge it either. If I don’t ask you to move, you shouldn’t move at all.” The illusion asked me to touch my breast with my arm to see if it became bigger or it was painful. But, I held my thought: This was just a suspicion. It was not me. I didn’t want it. At the same time I watched my hands and arms and didn’t let them move. I didn’t acknowledge it. I knew it was nothing. 

I coughed badly several years ago. I sent forth righteous thoughts for 40 minutes and overcame it. I fell asleep after several sleepless nights. But the cough came back after I woke up, and it worsened. It must be that my attachments of seeking comfort and complacency took advantage of me. I held fear. My breathing became difficult and weaker. But my mind was clear and calm. I looked inward and asked myself what I still could not let go. Fame, interest, or sentiments? The answer was no. I could let go of everything. I was not afraid of death. I didn’t have any regret now because I am a Dafa practitioner. But, I was still young. What would my neighbors think of Dafa? I didn’t want to bring any damage to Dafa. I would let Master decide whether I should stay or leave this world. All of a sudden a gust of fresh air came into my body. I could breathe. All uncomfortable symptoms disappeared. I knew that I must trust Master and the Fa. I should recite the Fa.

Master told us:

“The Fa can break all attachments, the Fa can destroy all evil, the Fa can shatter all lies, and the Fa can strengthen righteous thoughts.” (“Drive Out Interference,” Essentials for Further Advancement II)

Thus, I no longer paid attention to my thoughts and recited the Fa again and again. 

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. When you can really do that, not just saying it but putting it into action, Master will definitely stand up for you. What’s more, there are lots of Fa guardians around Master, there are lots of Buddhas, Daos, and Gods, and there are even greater beings, and they will all participate, because forced persecution that’s not acknowledged is a crime, and the cosmos’s old laws don’t allow it either—irrational persecution absolutely is not allowed, and the old forces don’t dare to do it if that is the situation. So you should do things as righteously as you can.” (Teachings Given on Lantern Festival Day, 2003)

I recited the above Fa many times, and felt my mind became empty. There was nothing there except the Fa. The more I recited, the more comfortable I felt. I went home safely. Dafa showed its divine power again. 

I had a terrible toothache one time, and I couldn’t eat or sleep well. I knew my teeth were okay. It was that spirit acting up again. I sent forth righteous thoughts. It didn’t help. I looked inward, but didn’t find any attachment. So what was wrong? It was a spirit. I was not wrong on that. It was an illusion. I didn’t acknowledge it. At that moment a weak thought came into my mind. It was fire tooth. That was it. I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate it. Instantly my teeth didn’t pain any more. It seemed like that nothing had happened. 

During a summer holiday, I vomited terribly and had diarrhea for nearly one week. It was close to the time for me to go back to work. My colleagues all knew that I practiced Falun Dafa. In order to avoid seeing people, I chose to work night shifts. For the first night, I rode my bicycle to work. I changed into my work uniform, and instantly it became soaked with sweat. Then, I thought I must fight conquer the evil. I would not acknowledge its existence. I would negate it. 

While at work I did manual labor work with two strong men. My supervisor saw me squat on the ground, and I was weak. He asked me to take a rest. I thanked him, but told him that I was all right. During the whole shift I was reciting the Fa. I waited until everyone else finished their showers before I went into the shower room. I collapsed onto the ground, and let the water pour over me for quite some time. I finished showering, put on my clothes, and went out of the door. When my hand touched the bike handle, I suddenly felt hungry. I knew I had succeeded. The illusion was gone. I felt as if it had been a dream. Looking back, I felt I was lucky. I believed in Master and the Fa at the time. I didn’t have any doubt or seek the result. I completely put myself into Master’s hands. 

In late autumn of 2018, I went to a neighboring city by bicycle and didn’t return until night. It was sunny during the day, but very cold at night. My back and legs became sore. I couldn’t sleep, lay down, or stand. I had to walk all the time. So I tried to recite the Fa during my walk. But, I couldn’t remember any Fa. I didn’t feel any energy when sending forth righteous thoughts. What was wrong? Finally, I remembered this sentence of the Fa: “Dafa Disciples’ Righteous Thoughts are Powerful” (Essentials for Further Advancement II). But, I couldn’t feel the energy of the righteous thoughts. Regardless, Dafa practitioners’ righteous thoughts must have power. I recited this sentence again and again. Then, my mind opened, and I could remember the Fa. I recited the Fa until dawn. My back and legs became normal. The illusion was just an illusion. I witnessed the power of Dafa again. 

Witnessing the Power of Dafa When Helping Practitioners Pass Tests

Last spring a practitioner displayed symptoms of gout. His body became deformed, and he had to use crutches. After talking to him, we learned that he gradually stopped cultivating after his wife passed away. He became an everyday person and didn’t believe in Dafa. Although he was not old, he had lost his vitality. He played games on his mobile phone. He got angry, swore at people, and wanted to commit suicide. 

His mother looked after him. She had been a lay Buddhist for many years. She was in poor health as well. We talked to him and asked him if we could study the Fa at his home. He didn’t say yes or no. But he felt that it was good for him if there were people around. 

So we set up a Fa study group at his home. We read two lectures of Zhuan Falun, and a few sharing articles about sickness karma from the Minghui website every day. Then we shared our insights and experiences. We didn’t say anything about his sickness or weaknesses. We just cultivated ourselves and rectified ourselves in the Fa. When we shared on the third day, he shared as well. He said that after studying the Fa and reading the sharing articles, he understood that he didn’t do well, and didn’t believe in Master and the Fa enough. 

On the fourth day his mother told us that he practiced the exercises in the morning by himself, although he did it while seated. He hadn’t practiced the exercises for a long time. On the fifth day he sent forth righteous thoughts in a proper way. He felt light and was motivated to study the Fa. His mother started to read Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa, and saw that every word on a page was Master’s smiling face. 

On the sixth day he practiced the first set of the exercises while standing. He also realized that using crutches was seeking outside help. He felt his legs became warm. On the seventh day he gave up one crutch and completed the first three sets of exercises by standing. On the eighth day he felt lighter, and said that he wouldn’t play on his mobile phone any more. 

On the ninth day he gave up the other crutch and walked to the other room independently. He finished all the exercises. He no longer used crutches. He asked another practitioner to keep his mobile phone on the tenth day. 

Actually, we didn’t do anything. We only acted according to the Fa and walked a righteous path. Every practitioner in the Fa study group followed the Fa principles and rectified themselves in the Fa. We conformed to the characteristics of the universe. Dafa’s divine power then manifested for us.
