Power of Dafa: Recovering from a Severe Spinal Fracture

Aug. 19, 2021 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in China

(Minghui.org) At the end of 2016, I fell off a four-meter-high ladder and landed on my back, which caused a severe fracture to my lower back. Despite enormous pain, I managed to make it to my bed. After that, I couldn't move any more, not even a bit. 

One tiny move would cause severe pain, and made me feel as if I was suffocating. My family members asked me to go to the hospital, but as I am a Dafa practitioner, only Master (Falun Dafa's founder) can save me. 

I put on my headphones and began listening to Master’s Fa. Gradually, I fell asleep, and when I woke up the pain was greatly diminished. 

The next morning, I noticed that my phone was still playing Master’s Fa. I thought about taking off my headphones and taking a rest, however, as soon as I took off the headphones, the severe pain immediately recurred. I put the headphones back on and continued listing to Master’s Fa. Instantly, I felt the pain fading away. 

I was lying on the bed without moving, and only listening to Master’s Fa. Sometimes I would fall asleep while listening, and I didn’t know how many times I had listened to the Fa. 

One day, I didn’t feel the pain anymore. Even the severe pain in my lower back seemed to have disappeared, so I got out of bed. By looking at the calendar, I realized that I had lain in bed for a total of nine days and nights! 

I walked to a mirror, and saw that my face was sallow and I had thinned down a lot. I knew that without Master’s protection, I could not imagine what would have happened. 

Aftermath of the Accident

When I turned around, I saw a big lump on my back when I looked in the mirror. I also couldn’t stand up straight no matter how hard I tried. I touched my lower back and felt a hard lump there as well. Some time later, I went to the hospital for x-rays. 

The doctor said surgery was needed, which would cost 200,000 yuan. 200,000 yuan was an astronomical number to me. I had just been released from the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) illegal imprisonment, and the CCP agents had ransacked my home many times; I could not even afford 2,000 yuan. 

The doctor showed me the x-rays, and he said that the vertebrae in my lower back were squeezed into a triangle. The joints were damaged, and excessive growth was already occurring in the area. 

He said that without surgery, I would have major trouble with my back in the future. I knew I had Master and Dafa, and didn’t have to worry about anything. So I took the x-rays with me and went home. I thought that I should do whatever I needed to, without limiting myself. 

My life was not affected much by having two big lumps on my back. I didn't rest any additional days, and in fact worked every day. 

However, gradually, I felt that my lower back was not comfortable. My lower back started to ache. My kidneys were as hard as two peaches, and my legs became very weak. I knew it was caused by the oppressed joint. 

Experiencing the Power of Dafa

I then thought that I could straighten my back on my own. From then on, every day I found various ways to straighten the joint – against the table edge, the edge of the bed, or against the outdoor iron fence. Sometimes I would ask someone to sit on my lower back. Every time, I could feel the bones making a light cracking sound. 

Once, as I did the sitting meditation on a bed, I leaned my back against a hard object behind me. All of a sudden, my entire spine jumped up, which almost brought up my whole body. 

I knew it was Master helping me straighten my injured spine. Thank you, Master and Dafa!

Gradually the lumps on my back became smaller and smaller. 

I didn’t wear tight tops before, because the lump on my upper back was very obvious. Now, when I wear tight tops, the lump on my back is barely noticeable. The lump on my lower back is also flatter. My whole body is straight now when I stand. My lower back pain disappeared, and I can walk and work normally. 

One day I bumped into someone I knew. He asked me, “Are you recovered?” I answered, “Yes!” 

When he asked me how I did it, I told him I practiced Falun Dafa. 

He said, “If I didn’t see it for myself, I wouldn't believe it.” 

Master and Dafa helped me recover from such a severe injury. I don’t know how to express my gratitudea. Falun Dafa is good! Falun Dafa is truly great! 

Some time ago, some people from the local police station and street administration committee came and harassed me again. They asked me, “Are you still practicing Falun Dafa?” 

I said, “ Yes, I do! Falun Dafa is my strongest spiritual support.” 

I then told them about my injured back. One of them asked, “Is your body now like a weather forecast when the weather gets bad?” 

“No,” I said, “no matter whether it rains or gets windy, I am not affected at all.” They didn’t say anything and left. 

It has been four years, and I have recovered completely. Nobody can tell that I have ever suffered from a severe lumbar fracture. If this had happened to an ordinary person, he or she would probably never be able to recover, and might have to lie in bed or be in a wheelchair for the rest of their life. 

During these years of cultivation, I have studied and worked hard. My skills improved as well, which made me excel at work, and clients are very appreciative of the quality of the products I make.

Master gave me a new life. Falun Dafa is the only hope of saving sentient beings. I hope that sentient beings will be awakened and cherish Falun Dafa. I also hope that fellow practitioners will become more diligent in cultivation, be qualified Dafa practitioners, and live up to Master's compassionate salvation! 

Thank you, Master! Thank you, Falun Dafa!
