(Clearwisdom.net) I am a veteran Falun Gong practitioner who began learning Falun Gong cultivation practice in 1996. In the beginning I neglected Fa study and took many detours off the path during my course of practice. With constant help from two fellow practitioners over many years, I continued practicing Falun Gong. I'd like to offer my deepest appreciation for the benevolent compassion and salvation offered to me by the founder of Falun Gong, Teacher Li Hongzhi, and the consistent help from my fellow practitioners.

My husband already believed "Falun Dafa is good" well before 1999, when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began illegally persecuting Falun Gong. At that time, yielding to immense pressure from the CCP, my husband did everything possible to interfere with my cultivation practice. I firmly believed in Falun Dafa so I was able calm his fears and continue my cultivation. Over the years, many miracles happened to me. I would like to encourage more people to take up the practice of Falun Gong, so I will share my experiences with you.

I began practicing Falun Gong in early spring 1996. At that time, I was suffering emotionally over the death of my dear son. I wasn't mentally alert at the time and I didn't have a strong will to live. I stayed in my house all day and isolated myself from the outside world. While I was lost in the maze of my life, local practitioners persuaded me to start Falun Dafa cultivation practice. They told me that Falun Dafa could help a person understand the truth of life thus solving many mysteries in one's life. They also told me that whoever practices Falun Dafa can have a good future. At that time, I didn't believe what they said. Then with compassion they said, "Well, you can give it a try and at least you can regain your health." So with that basic understanding, I started walking the path of cultivation.

When I first began learning the second exercise, while holding the law wheel position, I felt that there was something between my arms rotating, and I felt very comfortable. Fellow practitioners told me that it was the law wheel purifying my body. After some time, my mental and emotional state improved and I felt happy and free of the incessant worries of life. Soon everything in my life became peaceful and balanced.

Just as I was experiencing the wonders of Falun Dafa cultivation, my husband said ironically, "Can you obtain oil or rice from practicing Falun Gong? I answered, "I can't obtain either of them, but at critical moments it can save my life! Whenever I ask Teacher Li for help, I may be saved from dangerous situations." My husband once had coughing fits for several days, and the doctor told him to drink some boiled soup made from sesame oil, sugar and eggs. However, it was late in the evening and I could find no sesame oil at the stores. He felt very ill and he then thought of what I had told him, about asking Teacher Li for help, and soon after he just stopped coughing. He told his friend, "Falun Gong is so wonderful that I didn't cough after I recited it." I then knew that he also believed in the goodness of Falun Gong.

One day I felt particularly warm while doing the Falun Gong exercises, and I was thinking in my heart that it would be good if there was some wind to cool me down. In less than a minute, a stream of gentle wind blew over me. Another time, I had an acute stomachache and my head was sweating. I called out to Master for help and the pain stopped as soon as I had this thought. My grandson also witnessed the miracles of Dafa. When he once had toothache and couldn't sleep, he silently recited in his heart "Falun Dafa is good," and he felt well very soon, and fell asleep.

As I was running along the road one day, I collided with a young man who was riding his bicycle very fast. He was thrown off his bike several meters away, and I fell to the ground. I was unconscious but could still hear people talking. There were many bystanders, and my son was cursing the young man who was riding the bicycle. I regained consciousness and remembered that I was a cultivator in Falun Dafa, and that I should not extort money from others under any circumstances. Having this thought in my mind, I stood up and said to my son, "I am fine, please let him go." My only regret was that I did not tell the young man that I cultivated in Falun Dafa.

My husband had experienced the power of Dafa yet because he was not cultivating in Dafa he was still afraid of being persecuted by the CCP, and at times he still interfered with my cultivation. One day he suddenly lost consciousness and his face was sweating. He couldn't speak and he lost control of the left side of his body. My son carried him to the car and took him to the hospital. As I was following them I asked Master to save my husband. If something happened to him, as the major breadwinner, it would have an effect on my ability to clarify the facts of this persecution to all the Chinese people who have been deceived by the CCP's slander and lies. When we arrived at the hospital and just before we got out of the car, my husband's symptoms suddenly disappeared and he was even more energetic than usual. He said he was fine, and we went home. In the afternoon that same day, we took him back to the hospital for a final examination. The X-ray results showed that everything was perfectly normal.

In fact, all the miracles that have happened to me in the past years of practicing Falun Dafa are commonly experienced by cultivators. I realized that every Falun Dafa disciple has had similar experiences as we cultivate in Falun Dafa!
