(Minghui.org) I am a lecturer and I began to practice Falun Dafa in 2012 after reading about it on the Internet. I did not find other practitioners at the start, so I was not diligently reading the Dafa teachings. 

I’d like to tell you my experience of breaking through a life and death tribulation after coming down with the symptoms of COVID.

On January 19, 2020, I went to my hometown Wuhan to celebrate Chinese New Year. On January 23, Wuhan went in lock-down due to the epidemic, and on January 24, everyone had to undergo a mandatory temperature check. I began to experience a sore throat and increasing body temperature just three hours before the temperature check.

I realize that everything arranged by the old forces that happens to a practitioner could easily be affected by human notions. Unfortunately, I didn't pay attention to this and failed to negate old force interference.

My temperature was 37.6 Celsius (99.7 Fahrenheit). The doctor called the Epidemic Prevention Center in a panic. I didn’t believe I would contract the virus, because I am a Falun Dafa practitioner, but all my family members felt I had the symptoms. They immediately took me to be tested and the test came back positive, so I had to remain in hospital quarantine for three weeks!

The day before, I was thinking I would never contract the virus because I am a Falun Dafa practitioner, and even if I did, there would be nothing to worry about. This unrighteous thought caused me to be quarantined for more than 20 days.

Now that I reflect on it, there were two problems with that thought. The first one was, “I will never contract the virus since I practice Falun Dafa.”

It seemed I thought I had life insurance by practicing Falun Dafa. I had the attachment of using Dafa as an umbrella of protection.

The second one was, “Even if I contract it, there’s nothing to worry about.” Wasn’t I acknowledging old force arrangements by thinking this way?

Master answered a question in Teachings Given on Lantern Festival Day, 2003.

“Student: Why do the old forces dare to kill Dafa disciples in the persecution?

Master: There are two situations here. One is that in the past the old forces felt that a type of mentality arose among Dafa disciples, which is, once you cultivate in Dafa you think it’s like having insurance, and there’s nothing to be afraid of, there’s no sickness or death, this or that won’t happen, and everybody just has good fortune. But, once that mentality arises there’s going to be trouble. The old forces will do what they want to do, and once you unknowingly acknowledge their arrangements they will have excuses to control you and create various types of danger for you.” (Teachings Given on Lantern Festival Day, 2003)

I believe that the illusion of my contracting the virus was a manifestation of the old forces using my unrighteous thoughts as an excuse to create trouble for me.

On January 25, I was put in ICU (intensive care unit). All the doctors and nurses wore isolation suits. Their language and behavior showed they feared contracting the virus.

I also felt the pressure of public opinion. My family and friends were upset after they learned of my diagnosis.

The symptoms and discomfort I felt was as if I had the disease: there was a shadow on my lung after repeated X-rays, and my temperature remained above 38 degrees for more than 10 days, which was concerning to those around me. I insisted on not using medicine or ice to lower my temperature. The doctor was so anxious that he threatened to force feed me the medicine.

I made a little joke at his threat. He immediately said, “Do you realize the consequences if your temperature does not come down?” I said, “It’s very easy to bring it down. I just need to do the Falun Dafa exercises!” After I finished the standing exercises, my temperature indeed came down. But half an hour later, it went up again.

Therefore, every time before I had my temperature taken, I did a set of exercises. The doctors and nurses were amazed. I realized the reason my fever lasted so long was because I did not negate the old force arrangements sooner. After I sent righteous thoughts to negate the arrangements, my fever broke the next day.

As Master said,

“If thoughts are righteous,evil will collapse”(“What’s to Fear?” Hong Yin Volume II)

I knew my life was not in any danger because I am a Falun Dafa practitioner, so I remained calm and unmoved. But, the people around me didn’t see it that way. Many people were dying from the virus, so they were extremely nervous.

The physicians were attached to their authority and upheld science, so they had a hard time understanding and accepting alternative ways of healing. Their attitude was filled with CCP arrogance.

Despite my physical discomfort, I smiled at them no matter what their attitude. One thing for sure was that, they were not saving me, but I was there to save them.

They believed in what they knew about medicine, but my presence was putting a dent in their perceptions.

Later on, my relatives and friends as well as a psychologist urged me to cooperate with medical treatments, and even the police department officials instructed me to do the same, but I understood they were arranged to test me. I believe in Master and the Fa, and I negated the old force arrangements with righteous thoughts.

The more uncomfortable I became, the more sober my mind became. During the quarantine, I did not forget to do the three things. I only had a cell phone with me. I could not afford to care about phone security because I felt the epidemic was here to weed out people, but too many people hadn’t yet been saved.

I used WeChat to contact those whom I clarified the truth to before. but did not quit the CCP and its youth organizations. One by one, I helped more than twelve people quit the CCP organizations. My mind was filled with nothing but righteous thoughts, leaving no loopholes for the old forces to take advantage of.

I am grateful for our esteemed Master’s compassionate protection! I did not take a single pill or injection, and I walked out of the hospital completely cured. In the follow-up phone call from the Epidemic Prevention Center, the caller said, “I admire you so much! You are the only one who recovered on your own without medical treatment.”

I am glad I was able to overcome this hurdle with righteous thoughts and righteous actions as well as firm belief in Master and Falun Dafa.
