(Minghui.org) I’m 68 years old and I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1997. I recently experienced sickness karma and I’d like to tell you how I pulled through each time with compassionate Master’s help.

While I worked in the fields one day, I suddenly began drooling. My tongue was stiff and I couldn’t speak. I asked Master to help strengthen my righteous thoughts and eliminate this persecution by the old forces. I was fine ten minutes later.

The second incident happened when I was making dumplings. I suddenly felt dizzy and light-headed and then fell to the ground. The right side of my body was immobile.

My husband (also a practitioner) helped me up. He called out, “Master, please help us.” He then repeatedly recited, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

I begged Master to help strengthen my righteous thoughts to dissolve the persecution of my body by the old forces and to eliminate all the evil elements in my dimensional field. After sending righteous thoughts, I was able to practice the five exercises. Three days later, my body returned to normal.

From these experiences I understood that for practitioners, sickness symptoms are illusions. What happened to me was a reminder from Master to encourage me to walk my cultivation path well. As long as I have total faith in Master and Dafa and completely deny the illusion of sickness karma, I will pull through the tests.

A Cultivation Test

When my son learned what happened he insisted that I go to the hospital for a checkup.

“There’s no need. I’m fine now,” I said.

“I’m not saying that you should go for medical treatment,” he said, “It’s only for a checkup. If the doctor says everything is normal, then I won’t worry about you.”

I felt a bit unsure and discussed the situation with another practitioner, who said, “If you feel fine, it does not matter if you go for a checkup just to reassure your son. This is also validating the Fa.”

Ten days later, my son drove me to the hospital for a checkup. One patient was lying on a metal bed, motionless, and breathing shallowly. Her children were crying and calling out, “Mom, wake up. Please wake up.”

I felt very sad for them, thinking how wonderful it would be if more people had the opportunity to learn Falun Dafa. I had similar symptoms but recovered in three days, thanks to Dafa’s blessings.

When it was my turn, my son explained my situation to a specialty doctor, who said it could have been a stroke (cerebral thrombosis), and that I needed to undergo Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

The test showed that a blood vessel in my brain was blocked, but the dangerous period had passed. The doctor then checked my blood pressure and said, “Your blood pressure is very high. You need to be hospitalized for treatment.”

My son agreed with the doctor’s advice and insisted that I stay in the hospital to have the blood vessel unclogged. I refused and my son told the doctor I wanted to go home.

“It’s very dangerous for her to go home in this condition,” the doctor told my son, “I can consult with a couple of other specialists if you would like to hear what they say.”

Two other doctors assessed my condition and also came to the conclusion that I needed to stay in the hospital for treatment.

My son also agreed with them. I suddenly realized that all this was interference from the old forces, and my symptoms were just an illusion imposed by the old forces.

I asked Master to strengthen my righteous thoughts and quietly said, “Master, I made a mistake by coming here. I completely deny everything imposed on me by the old forces. Please help me strengthen my righteous thoughts to dissolve the effects of the old forces as well as all those dark minions and rotten demons and to clean up all the bad elements in my dimensional field and those in my son’s so that he agrees to take me home.

I told my son, “Let’s go home. I don’t belong here.” The doctors were surprised, and my son said he wanted me to be admitted to the hospital for treatment.

I said, “You are a filial son. Just listen to me and take me home.”

Seeing that I would not change my mind, he agreed. On the way home, I explained, “I was well-known in the village for my poor health before I started practicing Falun Dafa. Since I took up the practice I’ve been very healthy. For the past 20-odd years, I never needed to take any medication. When I had those symptoms I could have easily passed away if it had not been for Master’s protection.”

I’m in perfect health, and my family is very happy. They truly feel the power of Dafa. There are no words to express my deep gratitude to our compassionate Master. Thank you, Master!
