New Practitioner: My Experience of Cultivating for Five Months

( I chanced upon the television news produced by the New Tang Dynasty Television on Youtube in the middle of February 2021. I was impressed and liked it very much. The news anchor’s opinion of many news matters impressed me and touched my heart. Later, I found out that he is a Falun Dafa practitioner. That made me really feel like finding out what Falun Dafa is all about. Therefore, I went online to search about it and I finally had the chance to see Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa.

I truly started digging into learning and practicing Falun Dafa on May 23, 2021, and I am grateful that I have found this great practice.


Feelings After Reading Through Zhuan Falun Twice

Since the start of my cultivation, I began to read  Zhuan Falun and other lectures of Master’s daily. Master said,

“No matter how many times you read this book, you will still find it to be novel; no matter how many times you read this book, you will continue to gain new understandings of a particular passage; no matter how many times you read this book, you will still feel that there are many inner meanings within it that you have yet to discover.” ( Fa-Teaching Given at the Conference in Sydney)

I have a deeper understanding of reading  Zhuan Falun now.

Master said,

“After reading the book for the first time, you will find that it teaches the principles of how to be a good person; if you read the book again, you will find that what it explains are not the principles of ordinary people and that it is a book that goes beyond ordinary people’s knowledge; if you are able to read it a third time, you will find that it is a heavenly book; if you keep reading it you won’t be able to put it down.” (Fa-Teaching Given at the Conference in Sydney)

Last weekend, while I was sharing my cultivation thoughts with fellow practitioners, I talked about my feelings after reading Zhuan Falun for the first time. At that time, I shared that through studying the Fa, my initial thought was to abide by Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and to be a good person in ordinary society. However, when I read through the book for the second time, I could not help but become teary-eyed. I felt that I was really lucky to be able to obtain the Fa, and I could also feel that Master gave us so many things.

Later, there were many times when I would also become teary-eyed when I was studying the Fa. I thought that I must study it and practice the exercises even more so that I could share these experiences of mine to help more people obtain the Fa. This is my wish and I also want to achieve the three things which Master asked that practitioners do.

Master said, “This is why high-level gods have said, “You have left humans with a ladder to heaven— Zhuan Falun.” (Fa-Teaching Given at the Conference in Sydney)

A person is really lucky to obtain Dafa in this lifetime! Therefore, I must cultivate myself well and be diligent in my cultivation!


Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts for the First Time

When I had only been practicing for less than a month, I kept hearing fellow practitioners mention that Master wants us to do the three things well during their cultivation experience sharing at our weekly group Fa-study sessions. One of the things is to send forth righteous thoughts.

For the first time when I sent forth righteous thoughts, I prepared myself before the actual time in the afternoon. As it was my first time, I had yet to memorise the words used for sending forth righteous thoughts. Thus, I wrote them down on a piece of paper and was going to recite it by looking at the paper. However, after just reciting two words, my phone rang. I was not distracted and continued to recite the words. Within the ten minutes’ time of sending forth righteous thoughts, my phone rang four times. Despite this, I continued sending forth righteous thoughts until the time was up.

This incident taught me a lesson. I must remember to silence my mobile phone when I am going to send forth righteous thoughts the next time. After that, I thought about it. Was this a test by Master?

During normal times, it was quite impossible to have four phone calls coming in within a short ten minutes. That evening, at 6:00 Beijing time, I sent forth righteous thoughts again. During the first five minutes of cleansing my thoughts, a thought came into my mind: I am a new practitioner who has just started to practice Falun Dafa, will my righteous thoughts have power?

The time to send forth righteous thoughts started and I suddenly felt that I was being enveloped by a very strong gust of energy. I had never felt such a strong concentration of energy before.

When I sent forth righteous thoughts the next day, the same thing happened. The energy field around me was very strong. I even sweated and heard very strong “Wong, Wong” sounds of vibration. I felt Master was encouraging me.


Looking Within During Times of Problems, and Improving Xinxing

Once, during a big group Fa-study and cultivation experience sharing, a practitioner shared his experience when he studied the Fa together with his wife at night. He said that when they studied the Fa, his wife felt sleepy at times.

He would then have the thought, “I am so tired at work every day, but I still persist in studying the Fa when I come back from work. You are staying at home all day, why are you still feeling sleepy?” When he said this, I thought that if I were him, I would definitely think like that too. However, that practitioner suddenly took a turn and said that Master asks his disciples to look within and find the problems in themselves first whenever they face any problems. Therefore, he said, “This time, I thought about where did I not do well.”

When I heard him say that, I was touched by his words and I recalled that for these two weeks, I had been copying the Fa with my daughter. Every time when we were about to finish the copying, my daughter would say to me, “Mother, I really feel like throwing a temper.” Every time, I would say, “You must persist and persist. Do not lose your temper. This must be the devil that is trying to disturb you.”

However, when I heard what this practitioner had shared, I was really intrigued. I thought, “Did I do wrong somewhere so that my daughter would have such a reaction?” Therefore, today, when we have just started to copy the Fa, I thought in my heart, “I must start thinking about myself today. I must take note of my behavior.”

Just as I was having this thought, I suddenly had a stomachache and felt as if I had to go to the bathroom. Therefore, I told my daughter, “You start copying the Fa first, and recite it as you copy it. Do not wait for me as I need to go to the restroom for a while.” By the time I returned, my daughter had already copied three more rows than I. She was very serious as she copied and recited the Fa, and she did not lose her temper even after she finished copying the whole content. This was also the first time that she completed copying the Fa and felt happy.

This made me realise that Master must have known that I was starting to look at myself, look within and make sure to abide by the Fa when I face problems. In order to enlighten me, I was led to the washroom which helped me realise that the reason why my daughter was so angry after copying the Fa sessions was because I was always faster than her in copying it. As she was feeling anxious, she would feel as if she was losing her temper. Whenever we have any thoughts, Master will know and enlighten us in a timely manner.


Cleansing My Body

For the last two years, I have had severe constipation. Despite trying different curing methods, things not only did not improve but my lower back was affected too. Whenever I did housework for more than half an hour, my lower back would feel so tired that I could not straighten myself up. Later, an X-ray taken by the doctor also told me that the constipation affected my waist. The doctor prescribed some medicine and suggested that I use a waist guard to support my waist. Despite this, my condition was still not so good at times.

Two weeks after I started to cultivate in Falun Dafa, my constipation was no longer a problem. It has already been four months, but I no longer have any constipation and my waist no longer hurt. Even the problem that I had about not being able to sleep properly due to my need to get up to go to the restroom at night was also resolved. Now I can sleep very well through the night and my sleep quality is very good.

In the past, I would still feel lethargic in the day despite sleeping for more than eight hours a day. Now, I wake up naturally after just sleeping for six hours and I am energetic throughout the day. I know that Master has cleansed my body.


Making Phone Calls to Clarify the Truth

Not long after obtaining commencing the practice, I would always hear practitioners share about their phone calls to China to clarify the truth. Every time I heard about it, I wanted to help them. I had only just arrived from China in 2018.

At that time, I felt that life in China was quite good. For these 20 years, people’s life in China has been so good and people are so rich in China. However, after coming overseas to make a living, I realised that all that I heard when I was in China were lies. I was really shocked.

In such an environment in China, we really have no way to know what is the truth and what is not. Therefore, I really want to quickly go clarify the truth so that more people who are living in China can also hear the truth.

A fellow practitioner helped by giving me a lot of materials about clarifying the truth. I also read The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and How the Specter of Communism Is Ruling Our World. After making many preparations, I finally started to make phone calls to clarify the truth and persuade people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organisations at the start of August – that was two months ago.

When I first started making phone calls, many of those on the other end of the line hung up very quickly once the call got through. Gradually, through experience, there were some people who would finish listening to all the truth, and there were also others who were willing to quit the CCP organisations.

Now, before I make the calls, I will first look at the news for that day, such as the flood on July 20, the recurrence of the pandemic in Yangzhou and Xiamen, the power cut in over 20 provinces during the China National Day period, the current Shanxi thunderstorm and the flood discharge without any warning, etc. Through these topics which are known to the common folks in China, I start off the conversation to clarify the truth.

Master said,

“However hard the situation may be, you still must do the three things well. Saving sentient beings—that is a Dafa disciple’s responsibility!”(“ Fa Teaching at the 2013 Greater New York Fa Conference”)

I am clear in my mind that I will abide by Master’s teachings and I also know that only by studying the Fa well will I be able to improve my xinxing and do well in the projects to awaken sentient beings.

The above is my cultivation experience for the past five months. Kindly correct me if there are any areas for improvement.
