(Minghui.org) I received years of education and have worked in the medical field for quite a long time. Why do I practice Falun Dafa? Why am I steadfast in cultivation and clarify the truth after 13 years of persecution? The answer comes from my personal experiences and the miracles that I've witnessed.

Academic Achievement, but Failing Health

School studies were smooth sailing for me. I went to a nursing school and worked in a large hospital after graduation. Shortly after, I became the head nurse. I seldom thought about others, and pursued reputation and personal benefit.

Hepatitis B runs in my family. We lost five family members due to the illness, including my mother, two uncles, two aunts, and one brother. They passed away between the ages of 45 to 60. My in-laws were Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials, and my husband has five brothers. Among the five daughters-in-law, I am the only one who came from a farm. The other daughters-in-law all have different backgrounds. My husband was raised by his grandmother. His parents wouldn't let us live with them, so we rented an apartment and later purchased our own home. His parents purchased the other siblings' homes for them.

My health deteriorated daily. I had constant diarrhea, generalized weakness, and fatigue. I was so exhausted when I came home from work that I couldn't do the laundry or other household chores – I just wanted to sleep. I caught colds whenever the weather changed, with low grade fever and headaches. I felt sick all year around and became short-tempered. My medical bills were over 10,000 yuan yearly. I understood the illnesses well, and the prognosis was not good. I'd probably end up with cirrhosis of the liver, accumulation of fluid leading to abdominal swelling, bleeding, and liver cancer. The normal lifespan for a person with hepatitis B was not over sixty years old. I was miserable in this condition.

Miraculous Recovery from Hereditary Hepatitis B

Someone introduced me to Falun Gong in 1996, and explained that Falun Gong had miraculous healing effects. Provided that you abided by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, Teacher would protect you. Influenced by modern empirical science and atheism, I smiled – but didn't believe it.

Teacher is compassionate however, and didn't forget about me. Later, a patient of mine who was very sick and constantly needed medicine and injections visited me. I saw great improvement in his condition, which he said had begun after he started practicing Falun Gong. The change in this patient enlightened me, and I came to understand why so many people from all walks of life practiced Falun Gong. Falun Gong is so good. I began practicing Falun Gong in 1997.

As soon as I began reading the book Zhuan Falun, and watching Teacher's Fa lecture series, Teacher adjusted my body. I felt the rotation of Falun in my head, legs and body. I understood the meaning of life, learned the principles of karmic retribution, and that there were reasons for everything that happened in life. I no longer resented anyone.

I began abiding by the principles of Dafa, watching my words and deeds, caring less about fame and benefits, searching within whenever problems surfaced, and keeping a compassionate and peaceful heart. I became considerate of my patients' difficulties, and lived in harmony with my family. My xinxing improved quickly after I started practicing, and the changes in my body were enormous – all the discomfort and illness symptoms were disappearing, and I no longer felt fatigued.

After a physical examination in 2003, a lab technician called me at night, “Congratulations! You've developed antibodies for hepatitis B! It's a miracle, since as you know, it's impossible to develop antibodies for hereditary hepatitis B. I tested your results three times today because I was afraid that I'd made a mistake, but I'm on-call tonight and did it again – the results are the same! That's why I called you. It is amazing!”

I knew the results without needing to hear the lab results. I have now been cultivating for six years, and all the symptoms are long-gone. This modern-day test method verifies the power and wonder of Dafa. Many hospital staff knew that I had hereditary hepatitis B, and that several members of my family had passed away in our hospital – this was enough to expose the CCP's lies about Falun Dafa.

Miracles in My Family

The recovery of my health, and the sincerity, kindness, and tolerance developed from cultivation, influenced the people around me. Even though the CCP used its full force to slander Falun Gong, many people were able to discern good from evil, and persevered in their belief that Falun Dafa is good. They subsequently received blessings.

As a Dafa practitioner facing the lies spread by the evil CCP, we have the responsibility to display the wonder of Dafa to the world's people. I learned the Falun Dafa teachings as much as possible, used the principles to guide me, and my changes also influenced the surrounding environment.

Our Family of Over Twenty Acknowledges Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance

My in-laws and other relatives witnessed my enormous changes. My in-laws are retired and in their eighties, and looked down on me in the past. The kindness which I cultivated from Dafa also influenced them, and they understood that Falun Dafa is good. They enjoy talking with me. My brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law also respect me. They appreciate the fact that I'm always considerate of others and generous.

When the persecution of Falun Dafa began in 1999, several relatives stood up for me in such a terrifying atmosphere, and they rescued and protected me, and made their stand for justice.

Our family of four generations and over twenty people live in harmony. No matter who has issues, they love talking with me, and I guide them with Teacher's Fa. They always feel comforted and relieved after the discussion.

Last year during a New Year's Eve dinner, my father-in-law commended me, “I like to listen to you. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is so right. I like to hear that.” His five sons agreed in unison. Our big family lives in peace and harmony, and is just as Teacher says, “...the Buddha-light illuminates everywhere and rectifies all abnormalities.” (Zhuan Falun)

My Brother Recovered from a Near-fatal Accident

One night in 1998, my brother was hit by a car and thrown more than 18 meters. He was left in a coma. A doctor diagnosed him as having a cerebral contusion, and he was in critical condition. There was no improvement after several days. I told my sister-in-law, “You may ask the Falun Dafa Teacher for help. Only Dafa can save him!” I showed her Teacher's picture and she nodded her head in tears. Because she could not read very well, I let her and my brother listen to Teacher's lectures. The next day at noon, she saw a Falun when she was half awake, and she began cultivation practice that day. During meditation, I saw a pair of hands grasp a pile of dark coal-like material from my brother's head, and knew that Teacher was cleansing his brain. Several days later, my brother woke up.

My brother was hit by a company car from his workplace, and when it was time for a settlement, my sister-in-law didn't ask for compensation. She knew that Teacher saved her husband, so how could she extort money from others? She just told them, “Remember that Falun Dafa is good. I am a Falun Gong practitioner.” Many people in the village didn't understand her, and thought that she was quite foolish not to accept the compensation. She wasn't swayed by the gossip, and held one thought, “If you didn't have that amount of karma, you wouldn't have such huge tribulations. If it is not ours, I absolutely can't ask for it.”

My brother recovered pretty much back to his normal state, and can do any work he needs to – up on the roof of a house or out in the field; the only residual effect from the accident is that when he walks, his legs are slightly bent.

Severely Injured Cousin Regains Health after Family Recites “Falun Dafa is Good”

One day in October 2009 at around 3 p.m., my cousin was in a car accident. Two cars hit head-on; his car was demolished, and he was dragged out. He was taken to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and was intubated. After I arrived, I told his brother, wife and sons, “Do not cry, recite 'Falun Dafa is good', and ask Teacher for help.” I had previously clarified the truth to them, so they believed me and recited as instructed.

I visited my cousin the next day, and his brother told me, “It is working! He's been getting better and better since 11 o'clock last night.” They witnessed the wonder of Dafa, and understood that Falun Dafa is a Buddha Fa of great power. They also understood why practitioners explain the facts about Falun Dafa while facing such brutal persecution. They know that we are truly saving people.

My cousin recovered completely except for slightly decreased vision in one eye. His brother said, “Falun Gong is really good! It's amazing!” One night he heard dogs barking, and when he came out he saw a practitioner distributing truth-clarification materials. He said to him, “Go ahead and distribute the materials – I'll go ahead of you to chase away the dogs.” Those words were from an everyday person who knew the truth.

Reciting “Falun Dafa is Good” Saved a Van-load of People

A distant cousin once came to visit me, and I explained the truth about Dafa. He told me one day, “Sister, Falun Dafa is wonderful. Several days ago on a snowy day, I was driving a van on a mountain road. The brakes stopped working on the way down, and it was very dangerous. One person reminded us to recite 'Falun Dafa is good', so we all recited together, and my van stopped in the middle of the road. All six of us were saved – what a close call!”

Brother-in-law Receives New Life after Practicing Falun Dafa

In July 2010, my brother-in-law complained about a stomachache, and later found out that he was suffering from a colon obstruction. He underwent exploratory surgery that day and they found that it was cancer. I went to the operating room. His abdomen was covered with peritoneal mesothelioma and was already swollen. The surgeon just wanted to stitch the skin, but I asked him to get rid of as much of the tumor as possible. They put the tumorous material in a basin to show his family. The surgeon told them that his wound wouldn't close, and that he'd only live for another two months. I told my brother-in-law to recite “Falun Dafa is good,” and had him listen to Dafa lectures in his hospital room. He was very sincere, and after seven days, his wounds healed and he was discharged from the hospital. This miracle can't be explained by modern medicine. After he returned home, he read Zhuan Falun and watched Teacher's Fa lectures daily. He later told me, “I had a dream. I shed one inch of dark skin from my entire body.” He knew that Teacher had purified his body. He often read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, and watched New Tang Dynasty TV and the Shen Yun Performing Arts shows. His celestial eye was also opened, and he often saw Falun rotating. He is very grateful to Teacher for giving him a new life.

I am filled with tears as I write these stories about my relatives and myself, who've benefited so much from Dafa. Every true Dafa practitioner has endless stories like these. Teacher has endured so much for His practitioners and all sentient beings.

At this unprecedented historic time with mighty Buddha light illuminating the world, if you're still not awakened, you'll miss the opportunity to be saved. I advise you to hurry and seek the truth, and receive protection from Dafa.
