(Clearwisdom.net) At age 60, I retired from my career as a college professor in 1991 due to my failing health. In April 1996, I began to practice Falun Dafa when, through reading Zhuan Falun, I went through a spiritual awakening and began to fully understand the true meaning of life. Since then, I abandoned all my worries. More amazingly, after a mere two months of practice, my gallstones that had plagued me for 20 years disappeared.

One day in April 1996, I saw a book on a subway bookstand. It was Zhuan Falun. For some reason, before even glancing through the table of contents, as I normally do, I bought the book immediately. I couldn't wait to read this book. In the next few days, I read it day and night and completed the whole book in a couple of days. I was overjoyed that I found Falun Dafa. I was even more excited to have found my Master. I hoped to get a chance to see Master Li in person.

One morning, when I was reading Zhuan Falun, I entered into an alternate state of awareness. I saw a transparent cabinet. There were many Falun and of various sizes in the cabinet. They were all spinning. I was so happy that I yelled, " Falun!" Afterward I told my husband what I saw.

My husband located a practice site. When we arrived at the practice site, some assistants were teaching the exercises. They taught us all the moves with great patience and compassion. In addition, they gave us copies of materials for free. We felt so grateful. Three of us from my family, all over 60-years old, began attending regular practice and study sessions there. Every day, we would walk more than one hour to the site and practice from 1 to 1 hours. We did not feel tired at all but felt that we were doing the most meaningful and enjoyable thing.

Everyday I read Zhuan Falun and went to the park to practice. After a few days, one night, I felt an intense heat in my body. The next day I had a sharp pain in my abdomen. It seemed as if water were boiling in my abdomen, especially in the gall bladder area. The contractions were severe and the pain was unbearable. I had suffered gallstones for more than 20 years and over the years I received four ultrasonic treatments. But a few pieces of stones that were 1.6 cm, 1.3 cm, 0.8 cm, and 0.7 cm in diameter still existed. On the 3rd day, I felt a bitter taste in my mouth and my abdomen felt full although I hardly ate anything for three days. On the 4th day, I began to excrete the softened gallstones. The stones had completely melted and passing them was not painful at all. Three days later, the discharge was over. When I touched my abdomen where I could usually feel the gallstones, I felt nothing. They were totally gone. I felt so comfortable.

Years ago, a bone in my hand was broken in a car accident. The injury reduced the function of my hands and legs. Now everything has changed. I feel so much better and I can continuously do the exercises for one and a half hours and walk for 3 to 4 hours without feeling tired.

These are the miracles that happened within the first 2 months of practicing Falun Dafa. It is Zhuan Falun that has guided me on the path of Dafa cultivation.
