Recovering from Serious Injuries in Nine Days
(Minghui.org) I had the amazing experience of recovering from a serious car accident in nine days.
On the evening of May 11, 2016, I was out on my electric bicycle putting up truth-clarifying posters. I planned to visit four villages, which were about three miles away.
I had visited three of the villages by midnight. It was about 1:30 a.m. when I finally finished at the last one. I had expected to return home at around 2 a.m. The electric bicycle saved a lot of time and I planned to use it again.
I got to the main road and it was very busy, even at that late hour, so I took extra care. Then something happened.
When I came to, I found myself lying on the ground. I tried to sit up but I couldn't move. Every part of my body was in agony. My head felt like it had been hit by a baton.
I couldn’t recall what happened at all. I finally sat up and found myself at the side of the road, my electric bicycle lying next to me. The road was still busy.
I felt a warm liquid flow over my ear and I thought it was raining. When I wiped it off with my hand, I discovered it was blood. I checked my bicycle again and noticed the back seat was broken. I realized that I had been hit by a car.
My first thought was to send forth righteous thoughts. I didn't think this was a big deal. I believed that I would recover soon after doing the Falun Gong exercises.
I tried to stand up, but I couldn't. I thought I should call my husband, but I realized that he didn't have a car to come get me. I decided to get home by myself.
I started to pray to Master and recite the Fa:
"I'm Li Hongzhi's disciple, I don't want other arrangements or acknowledge them"--then they won't dare to do that. So it can all be resolved. When you can really do that, not just saying it but putting it into action, Master will definitely stand up for you. (Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference)
After I recited the Fa a few times, I felt better and found that I could stand up. I checked the bicycle again. The handlebar was a little bent but I was able to straighten it. My sense of direction was off, so I leaned on my bicycle and began to walk along the side of the road.
Now I realized how badly I was hurt. My hands hurt when I grabbed the bicycle handle. My left palm was bleeding, and I felt many injuries on my face. I felt two cuts on the back of my head where blood was oozing out down to my ears. My left elbow was injured. My ribs might have been broken, since every movement was very painful.
I didn't stop sending forth righteous thoughts. When I was almost back at my village, the road conditions were worse. I could hardly continue. I was dizzy and wanted to vomit. I really wanted to stop, but I knew that I couldn't. I prayed to Master to help me get home.
Finally, I was there. My husband was waiting for me, and it was 3 a.m. When he saw me, he was shocked. “Were you attacked? Why are you bleeding?” I told him that I had been hit by a car. Then I realized that the bleeding had already stopped.
My husband helped clean me up. I felt dizzy and nauseous again. He said, “You must have suffered a concussion.”
With his help, I changed and cleaned myself. The dizziness and nausea came and went, but I was not affected. Instead, I kept sending forth righteous thoughts. When I felt better, I laid down and fell asleep.
The next day, my eyes, lips, and the left side of my left face were badly swollen. A neighbor visited me and urged me to go to the hospital. I told her that I was fine.
“My head was bleeding on the way but it stopped before I got home— Master helped me.” I told her that I didn't need any medication. Doing the Falun Gong exercises was a hundred times better than any remedy.
I did the exercises and studied the Fa every day, and soon the left side of my face and left eye recovered. The right side of my face and my right eye had turned black. My husband said it was because there was blood in my brain. I told him I would be fine. I knew Master was helping me. Four days later, my face and eye were fine.
By this point, nine days had gone by, and all my injuries had healed. I had totally recovered. Falun Dafa is so amazing!
Besides doing the exercises and studying the Fa during those nine days, I also looked inside. I discovered that I often blamed other practitioners for things.
Before the accident, the practitioners in my area were busy working in an orchard. Each of them only took few copies of truth-clarifying materials to post, so I had to take a lot more copies. I blamed them for not helping more. That loophole gave the old forces a chance to persecute me.
I don't know how to thank Master enough. Only with Master’s help could I have recovered from a serious accident in nine days. I realized that, as practitioners, no matter how difficult the situation, as long as we are steadfast in our faith in Dafa and Master, we will eventually get through.
