(Clearwisdom.net) Three of my sisters and two of my brothers passed away in their twenties and thirties. I experienced the great pain of parting forever with my siblings too early.
After experiencing so much hardship, I felt no sense of hope in my life. I became more and more depressed, emotional, and always worried that something bad would happen and that my family members would get sick or die. I was severely stressed out and developed a nervous system disease.
In the fall of 1997, I felt unwell and had to go to the hospital for a check up. The results showed that I had very severe heart disease and hyperthyroidism. The thyroid caused diseases in many parts of my body, including pharyngitis, menstrual disorders and gastroptosis. We visited almost every hospital nearby, and I tried both Chinese medicine and western medicine, but the treatments were ineffective. The president of the city's Chinese Medicine Hospital told one of my family members in private, "Her heart disease is very severe. She might die at any time when she is unable to catch her breath."
I sensed that my siblings' fate was upon me. I felt heartbroken thinking about my young children and my mother, who had already lost five children.
In the fall of 1998, my family members obtained the book Zhuan Falun from a doctor. After I finished reading Lunyu, I was immediately attracted by the profound teachings of the Fa that I hadn't found in any other books. I kept reading and felt very comfortable and peaceful. In this book I found answers to all my questions about life and death. The book Zhuan Falun lit a lamp in my confused heart and brought hope to my life.
I had a good night sleep's that night. I hadn't had a good night sleep for many years. Since then, I said goodbye to the insomnia which had bothered me for many years. As soon as I began practicing Dafa, my body was purified and soon I was living a healthy normal life again.
Falun Dafa changed me and taught me how to be a better person, a selfless person who benefits others by following Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I have become cheerful and optimistic as a result of cultivation. I became a totally new person.
My family and relatives were very impressed by Falun Gong's amazing effects in healing illnesses and improving physical health and fitness, and as well as the power of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. They were all surprised at the great change in my physical and mental health. They told everyone they met that Falun Gong was amazing. My son even "kowtowed" to Master Li Hongzhi's photo to show his gratitude.
My family witnessed my miraculous recovery and listened to Master Li's lectures with me every morning. My husband used to drink alcohol every day, as well as gamble and indulge in other bad habits. He has changed a lot gradually and said he would cultivate Dafa someday.
However, in 1999 the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Dafa. As a result, my husband was too frightened to listen to the Falun Dafa teachings, and his old bad habits returned. I felt so sad and couldn't understand what was wrong with this government that would cause them to persecute such a wonderful practice. Falun Gong benefits the people and the country and was once promoted on TV and approved by the Ministry of Public Security. Why had the government broken its own promise and forbidden people from practicing Falun Gong, and even spread rumors to frame Falun Gong?
At first we thought we could practice Falun Gong secretly in our homes after work. However, facing the CCP's ruthless propaganda campaign, we needed to step forward to talk with people about Falun Gong, and clarify the truth to save those who were deceived by the lies. For eleven years, millions of Dafa practitioners have been clarifying the facts about Falun Dafa with their personal experiences.
I have been testifying to the goodness of Falun Dafa using my life, which was prolonged by Master Li, as an example. During these years, I have experienced a lot of harassment and threats from the CCP, and even detention. I have experienced a lot hardship in my life, but I still have strong belief in Falun Dafa. My health is still very good. I gained a new life from Falun Dafa. There are so many similar recovery experiences like mine. These are all facts that will outlast all of the rumors and fabrications.
