(Clearwisdom.net) I started practicing Falun Gong in August 1995. At the time, I was 74 years old and was suffering many illnesses. Being extremely weak, the first time I went to the practice site carrying my pad to sit on, I sat down to take a rest every several steps. Due to serious diabetes, I had to urinate many times. I seldom drank water but still could not control having to urinate often and I often had incontinence of urine. My monthly medical expenses were over 600 Yuan RMB. Many years of diabetes had led to glaucoma, which distorted my eyesight. In my eyes, the moon was not round, but a two-inch long rectangle.

Later on, someone introduced Falun Gong to me, saying this cultivation teaches people to be good, does not accept money and has miraculous effects. After hearing this I became very interested and decided to go to the practice site to give it a try.

Then miracles began to occur. I felt stronger after just ten days of practicing. It was really surprising that on my way to the practice site, I had to rest several times; but on my way back I felt very light and went home without a break. I used to go to the hospital in Shijiazhuang city, but my illnesses were not alleviated even after I spent a lot of money. But only several days after learning Falun Gong, I have felt effects. This gave me determination and confidence in cultivation.

Speaking of health, I used to suffer from many illnesses. My feet were so swollen that I could not put my shoes on. My eyes hurt so much that I could not open them. I had Nephritis, cirrhosis, heart disease, and diabetes. I went to four hospitals, but there was no improvement. After learning Falun Gong, I have recovered from glaucoma and diabetes. I eat more than before, yet I lost weight. I used to weigh 165 Jin (about 180 pounds), but now I weigh 134 Jin (about 148 pounds). I have a good appetite and I sleep well. I stopped playing Mah Jong and my life became normal.

My feet were bound when I was 7 years old, and were unbound when I was 14 years old. Although my feet were released, the ten toes were curved and deformed. At the beginning of practicing Falun Gong I could not even hold the Falun Standing Stance for three minutes. But now I can maintain the positions for more than an hour, as all of my ten curved toes have become straight. My whole body became more youthful. These changes thrilled me.

One day when I was exercising at the practice site, I could see my Tianmu (Third Eye) with my eyes closed. I also saw a cover of light around my body. It was yellow at first, then became blue and transparent. Although I am over 70 years old, I feel strong after practice and can keep up with young people when working. I feel that the longer I practice, the stronger I am.

All this is from my own experiences. I hope everyone comes to know more about Falun Gong.
