The Joy of Regaining My Life

September 03, 2005 |   By Xin Sheng, a new practitioner in China

(Clearwisdom.net) I am retired and live in Hubei Province. I used to have diabetes, high blood pressure, a breast tumor, uterine tumor, and dislocations in the lumbar and cervical regions of my spine. Because my blood vessels and nerves were compressed all the way from neck to waist, my muscles had atrophied and become stiff. My hair turned gray, and I was unable to take care of myself. Every day, I lay in the bed, and used a heavy extension apparatus to stretch my spinal column. The stretching force I used was four times stronger than a regular patient. The extension was so painful that I sweated profusely. I spent all my money on medication, but saw little improvement in my illnesses. I sometimes thought about death, but after all, I was just over 50 years old.

When I was suffering tremendously and worrying about future medical expenses, Falun Gong practitioners helped me, so that I was able to regain my life.

Unable to move, I could not hold Zhuan Falun to read but could only lie in bed to listen to Teacher's lectures. As I was listening, my entire body felt warm and comfortable. Within one week, my physical health improved fundamentally. I no longer needed the extension apparatus, and I was able to walk around. I was also able to hold Zhuan Falun to read and do the exercises.

During those days, I could clearly feel the changes inside my body, and I knew Teacher was completely eradicating my illnesses. Sometimes, I felt very painful in the left breast, and sometimes painful and sour in my stomach. I knew Teacher was cleansing my body, so I did not complain. I was also solidifying my faith in Teacher and the Fa.

When starting to the do the exercises, my back and neck were extremely painful. My legs were also painful and sore after standing for a few minutes. I kept reciting "It's hard to endure, but you can endure it. It's hard to do, but you can do it" (Zhuan Falun) to encourage myself to continue. When I began to do the fifth exercise, my legs turned blue or purple every time, and it took me a long time to separate them. I knew it was because my karma was being pushed to the surface. When I listened to Teacher's lectures, I felt like I wanted to vomit. I know it was because my body was being cleansed, and karma was struggling before being eliminated. Throughout the process, other practitioners helped me improve my understanding of the Fa according to my situation. In this way, I kept listening to the Fa until I was able to hold Dafa books to read.

Now all of my stiff muscles have become supple. In addition, I also do all the home chores such as shopping for groceries, cooking, hand-washing clothes (I do not use a washer), cleaning the floor, etc. All these changes have happened in just a few months!

My husband used to say that my muscles were all dead. Upon seeing my change, he was no longer against my practicing Falun Gong.

I heard about Falun Gong a long time ago, but I did not practice due to the Chinese Communist Party's vicious propaganda. That is why I spent all my money and still suffered so much, until I was on the verge of collapse.

When I first started to practice, my husband was very much against it, saying he would throw away the Dafa books and the tape player. My children also called home, yelling at me to stop practicing. All these were the consequences of the CCP's vicious, slanderous propaganda. It was this way until the May 1 holiday, when my children came back home, saw my changes, and got rid of their misunderstandings of Dafa. They also discussed buying a new TV and DVD player to help me study the Fa and do the exercises.

It is Falun Dafa that let me regain my life, which also benefited the whole family. I want to say aloud to everyone, to the world, and to the heavens that, "Falun Dafa is good! Falun Dafa is really good!"

Because of the CCP's slanderous propaganda and brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, many people here are still poisoned by the lies. For example, several days ago police broke into and ransacked a practitioners' home. Right now, I do not have the courage to clarify the truth to people in public, because I worry that my children and husband will be affected. But I believe one day I will courageously step forward to tell people on a large scale about how I regained my life. I will tell people that Falun Dafa saved me, and tell them how the CCP lied. Falun Dafa is giving an opportunity to all beings, and I hope people will not miss this unprecedented chance. This moment is indeed very precious.

I have quit the CCP and all of its subordinate organizations. I also hope all kind Chinese people can come to know the truth of Dafa, quit the CCP organizations, and walk towards a bright future.
