(Minghui.org) With the Fa-rectification progressing our level of cultivation increases, and the requirement for our cultivation is higher.

In the past, I would have dreams that would come true during the next few days. At first, I was pleased, thinking it was my supernormal abilities of precognition and retrocognition.

Then in a dream in 2019, I saw myself being reported while telling people about Falun Dafa. In the dream, I was holding a yellow bag. When I woke up, I knew I should not acknowledge the arrangement from the old forces, but I did not know how to negate it. I threw away the yellow bag I had in my real life and thought I would be safe. It was true that I had no encounters with the police.

Then in 2021 I again had a dream about police coming after me. In reality, I was reported a few days later while out clarifying the truth. I was held in a local police station for a few days before being transferred to a detention center.

I looked within and realized I placed too much importance on my dreams, yet I didn’t know how to handle the interference with righteous thoughts.

Master taught us:

“The problem of provoking demons is sure to arise when a person is cultivating to high levels.” (Chapter III, Falun Gong)

I realized that the demons at different levels (the old forces act as demons during the period of the Fa-rectification) would use different methods at different levels. They may create false appearances, including information, images, sounds, and fantasies, or take advantage of the practitioner’s attachments and the human heart to impose a set of arrangements of their own.

If we don’t make any discernment at the time and accept its arrangements, they will have an excuse to create tribulations for us.

Why can the evil appear in my dreams? I realized it was because of my thought that since I was out talking to people every day, I would eventually face the persecution head-on.

Master said:

“For example, once a person develops a bad thought, it is very dangerous.” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)

When the bad thought came out, I did not promptly negate it but acknowledged it unknowingly. After I was arrested and detained, the old forces attempted to amplify my fear by manipulating my dreams, knowing that I would believe in those dreams. It formed a vicious cycle, where I was drifting further and further away from the Fa.

After seeing through the evil’s tactics, I firmed up my thoughts to reject anything I saw in my dreams and those beings responsible for interfering with me would be held accountable. If they insist on carrying out the interference, they would be eliminated. From then on, interference in my dreams was gone.

This is my understanding at my current level, please kindly point out anything not on the Fa.
