(Minghui.org) I came across a practitioner at a market one day in May 2021, who asked me for some truth clarification materials. We rode my electric bicycle to my home to get the materials. The road was uneven, and my hands and body were shaking trying to control the bicycle.

It felt like the handlebars were loose and out of control, so I stopped the bicycle and got off. My left hand and leg felt weak. Only then did I realize that there was a problem with my body, not the bicycle.

I sent righteous thoughts to completely deny this state and asked Master Li (Dafa’s founder) to reinforce my righteous thoughts. The practitioner asked me to move the bicycle, but I couldn't. I held the bicycle against a wall of a building and kept sending righteous thoughts.

Remembering a Dream

When I sent righteous thoughts, I remembered a dream I had a few days earlier. The place where I was standing now was exactly the place I saw in my dream. There was a muddy and turbid pond, with a person in a small boat on the pond. I was with a practitioner on the fourth floor of the building. I told the practitioner that the pond was built by the property management and it seemed to be a tourist spot. I wanted to go down and take a look, to see if we could save someone. As we walked and talked, I felt that the road was narrow. Then I woke up.

I didn't think much of the dream at the time. While I was standing against the wall I realized that the muddy pond was not a good thing - it was interference. I immediately sent forth righteous thoughts to clear it out, thinking that no matter how bad the muddy pond was, I must get over it. I also realized that “property management” in Chinese sounds like “pay attention to karma.”

Master arranged for me to go through the tribulation (what seemed to be the symptoms of a stroke). Perhaps it was “karma” that caused the tribulation, as there is a history of this kind of illness in my family.

Asking the Lives in My Body to Strengthen Me

I asked Master to strengthen me and kept sending righteous thoughts, saying in my mind: My human body is a universe. I can't make my universe incomplete. My physical body is here to help Master rectify the Fa. The old forces are not allowed to persecute my physical body for any reason.

I said to every life in my body: Any life that has assimilated to the Fa, go and rectify the Fa. From the macrocosm to the microcosm to the surface, disintegrate all of the old force factors. For all parts of my body that have not assimilated to the Fa, quickly assimilate to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. My hands and feet are mine and must be controlled by me. If I tell you to move, you have to move.

I had no fear and kept repeating the words “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” for over ten minutes. With Master's strengthening, I felt that my energy field was very strong, and told the practitioner with me that we could go now. She also had been sending forth righteous thoughts for me.

She worried about me riding the bicycle, but I assured her that I was OK. I thought to myself: I am a Dafa disciple and I am in control.

Master Can Help When We Have Righteous Thoughts

I constantly strengthened my righteous thoughts and was able to ride all the way home. However, when I reached the entrance of the building where I lived, I got off the bicycle and couldn't move again. The practitioner set the bicycle aside, and I leaned against the wall. I kept sending forth righteous thoughts. It was almost noon, and I let the practitioner go home and have her lunch.

I sat on the step of the entrance to my apartment building, grabbed my left hand with my right hand, and together held onto my left leg, making it move.

My daughter came about 10 minutes later. I told her about my situation, and she suggested that I go to a hospital, but I said no. I asked her to drive me to my bungalow in another area. My bungalow is a Fa-study site, and every afternoon we have group Fa-study there. I needed to go there to open the door for the other practitioners.

My daughter helped me into the car, and she drove a short distance to pick up her child. As she was walking to the nearby school, I saw a practitioner passing by. I was about to say hello but then changed my mind. My first thought was that this practitioner can help me, but then I realized that I can't have this thought of seeking external help or relying on others.

While I was waiting for my daughter to come back to the car, I managed to push the car door open. I got out and a miracle happened. I could walk! I walked back to the apartment building, went upstairs, then returned to the car.

I realized that this was because of Master. My righteous thoughts became even stronger. When my daughter returned to the car I told her that we can go home for now. I went upstairs with my daughter, and she witnessed the miracle.

I sent forth righteous thoughts at noon. The karma recurred twice, but I completely disintegrated the interference with righteous thoughts.

I went to the bungalow at 2 p.m. to study the Fa as usual. The symptoms recurred twice during Fa-study. I couldn't hold the lotus palm position with my left hand to send righteous thoughts, so I sent righteous thoughts to my left hand to disintegrate all the old force factors that caused the left hand not to function.

My left hand had more movement by 5 p.m. and was completely back to normal an hour later. It took six hours to eliminate the karma with righteous thoughts.

Although the time was short, Master endured a lot for me. If I didn't practice Dafa in this lifetime, I might have been paralyzed on the left side for the rest of my life.

Master said:

“Think about it, everyone: With cerebral thrombosis, how could one walk around and move both arms and legs again so quickly? Instead, he blamed Falun Dafa for making him go wrong. He did not think about it: How could he recover so quickly from cerebral thrombosis? If he had not practiced Falun Dafa at that time, he might have really died there when he fell. Perhaps he would have become paralyzed for the rest of his life and would have indeed had cerebral thrombosis.” (Lecture Six in Zhuan Falun)

After breaking through the tribulation, I didn’t know how to express my gratitude to Master. Now when I recall that period of time I can’t stop crying.

Looking Inward

I looked inward to find out why this happened. Maybe the old forces took advantage of my sentimentality toward my husband. My husband loved to play Mahjong. After studying the Fa, I knew that it was not good for him and wanted him to stop but he didn't listen, and I couldn't let it go.

I am determined to put aside my complaints about my husband and put validating the Fa as a priority in the future. Without Dafa, I would not have a healthy body.

I would like to remind practitioners that when we encounter dangerous situations or serious sickness karma, we shouldn't generate any human thought. We should just believe in Master and let go of life and death.

Master said:

“When you are overcoming a real hardship or tribulation, you try it. When it is difficult to endure, try to endure it. When it looks impossible and is said to be impossible, give it a try and see if it is possible. If you can actually do it, you will indeed find: "After passing the shady willow trees, there will be bright flowers and another village ahead!" (Lecture Nine in Zhuan Falun)

We should constantly send righteous thoughts to eliminate the old force factors that interfere with our bodies and cause incorrect states.

When studying the Fa, I realized that when our cultivation paths are very narrow, we could have problems if we deviate even slightly on our path.

I came to realize that the vivid things I saw in my dream already happened in the fast time-space, but hadn't occurred in this time-space. Master said: “There is one kind of dream that concerns you directly. We should not call such a dream a "dream." (Lecture Nine in Zhuan Falun)

We should use the Fa to measure the things that happen in a dream. If you feel that the dream is not good, you should immediately send forth righteous thoughts for a long time to clear any bad substances out, and at the same time, look inward regarding what happened in the dream.
