16. My Migraine Headaches And Heart Disease Disappeared,

My Husband Quit Smoking, Drinking And Gambling

  My name is Lin Meili, and I am a Falun Dafa practitioner from Singapore. I have practiced Falun Gong for five years and benefited greatly in both my mind and body. Below I will talk about the changes cultivation in Falun Gong has brought about in me.

  Before I started to practice Falun Gong, I suffered from many illnesses, with migraine headaches and heart disease being the most prominent. When I had a heart episode, it was very difficult to breathe. I could feel my heart stop beating as if my life had come to an end. This often happened at night and it was excruciating. When the headache came, it would hurt so much that I trembled all over and could not fall asleep. These two illnesses afflicted me for most of my life.

  Since I was introduced to Falun Dafa on May 1, 1995, I have practiced the exercises every day. Because I had no schooling in my whole life, I couldn't finish one full sentence of Zhuan Falun, (1) let alone understand the underlying principles. When I studied the Fa (2) at that time with fellow practitioners, I remembered one character after another while listening to them. It was quite amazing that I could read the whole book of Zhuan Falun after one year. The Fa gave me wisdom, and now I also have a very healthy body and look younger and younger. All of my past illnesses have gone away.

  I would also like to talk about the huge changes in my husband after cultivation. My husband's parents had expelled him from their home when he was a teenager because he would not go to school, didn't listen to his parents and had become addicted to smoking and alcohol. His parents were unable to teach him. After we were married, his old habits still remained, and he was also prone to gambling. He would smoke three to four packs of cigarettes a day. I tried all kinds of ways to help him get rid of those bad habits, but nothing worked. He was hot-tempered and often fought with others or verbally abused them. He often shouted at me as well, so our children were afraid of him.

  After we started to practice Falun Gong, I could hardly believe how he changed to a completely new person. He quickly got rid of his 40-year-old smoking habit and became a kind-hearted and gentle person. Falun Gong removed his bad habits in a very short period of time. He no longer smokes cigarettes, does not gamble or drink alcohol, and no longer fights with others or verbally abuses them. He has really become a good father and a good husband. Our children said, ^Father has changed. He has changed into a different person after learning Falun Gong. ̄Our family has become harmonious. Falun Gong has saved our family. I am grateful to our Teacher, who has given me a happy family. Since the persecution in China began, newspapers in Singapore have reported the news from China. I know that Falun Gong is a righteous cultivation way. Considering the positive changes in our family, how could Falun Gong not be good? Teacher teaches us to be good people with high moral standards and I am a beneficiary of cultivation, so I have kept on practicing. I distribute literature about Falun Gong on my way to and from work so that more people may learn the truth about Falun Gong and benefit from it, like my family and I have.
