A Broken Washing Machine Helps Me Enlighten to the Power of Righteous Thoughts

A Dafa practitioner in New York

[PureInsight.org] I was given some time from my husband, as he took my two young children out on Saturday morning, and I used it to clean the house. I was thinking what a great, thorough job I was doing, and thought it’d be great to also cleanse myself that thoroughly by sending forth righteous thoughts while working. I had missed the early morning time at 6 am.

At 12:13 pm, I realized I had just missed the midday righteous thoughts as well. I sat down and started, really trying to concentrate and improve on my often-distracted state while doing them. I had a load of washing on and had to keep an ear open for it because it hadn’t been working properly lately and didn’t spin properly at the end and stopped multiple times during the washing cycle, so I had to push start again to keep it going. But, as I kept sending righteous thoughts, trying really hard to focus, the washing machine didn’t stop. I stayed doing Fa Zheng Nian for about 40 minutes and realized that the washing machine had finished the cycle with out any problems for the first time in weeks.

I enlightened to the fact that master had been using the washing machine to show me that my righteous thoughts weren’t working, and I was often distracted while doing them, and stopped completely as I drifted into stray thoughts. It was affecting many things in my life negatively, and I had many tribulations recently that I couldn’t pinpoint the root cause of. Also, using the washing problem as a metaphor, because it wasn’t spinning the clothes properly, I had to either ring them all out by hand afterward, which was very time consuming, or use the dryer, which took twice as long and wasted power — basically, it was like a ripple effect.

An example of other things that had been very chaotic since my daily righteous thoughts had become so poor, is that my three year-old boy began having nightmares, followed by coughing all night, keeping us and him awake — it was very frustrating. It manifested like asthma. He was becoming more fearful by the day, and so was my 1.5 year-old girl, very frightened easily, all out of the blue. I had been a very scared child, able to sense evil around me, and also had asthma and coughing every night too – so I knew their issues were my issues, but I didn’t know what.

Now I realize that my field was filled with bad things because I hadn’t been sending righteous thoughts well, and after my powerful session of sending them today, know how to take control of my environment again, and take full responsibility for it.

The following is an excerpt from Master’s article, “Eliminate the Dark Minions With Righteous Thoughts”:

“Along with this, when you send righteous thoughts you need to have your mind be more focused, purer, and steadier, so as to mobilize your greater abilities, disintegrate all of the dark minions and rotten demons, and eliminate the final disruptions that are in other dimensions.

Stop letting the evil exploit gaps, and stop being interfered with by human attachments. Do well the things that Dafa disciples should do, and walk the last leg of the journey well. Righteous thoughts, righteous actions.”

I hope my experience can help other practitioners. Please point out anything you think will help me improve my understanding, or doesn't seem right.
