New Practitioner: Cured of Multiple Health Problems after Twenty Years of Suffering
(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Gong in 2012. My initial experiences were truly amazing.
I went to work with a family as a nanny in May. It seemed rather coincidental that whenever it was time for me to go home, it would start to rain. I got soaked from the rain several times. Soon my rheumatism relapsed. It felt like I was wearing heavy armor, and I felt sore all over. My joints itched and hurt at the same time, as if there were nails hammered into them. My left knee was especially bad. I could not climb any stairs, as my left leg had to remain bent.
The lady of the family I worked for noticed my situation and started to talk to me about Falun Gong. She also shared her experiences practicing Falun Gong over the past 16 years. Because I had heard all kinds of slanderous propaganda broadcast by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), I did not pay much attention to what she said.
In June, my rheumatism relapsed once again after I got soaking wet during a thunderstorm. By coincidence, I noticed some writing on a one-yuan bill that I had. It read, “'Falun Dafa is good.' Enjoy endless blessings if you recite it often.” I read it out loud once. I then heard some noises that sounded like water about to boil and peanuts being fried.
I was curious and stood up to look for where the sound came from. I suddenly realized my legs didn't hurt when I stood up. When I touched my left knee, to my utter shock it felt hot. I could not believe it and asked my son to touch it. The moment his hand touched my knee, he yelled out, “Mom, it is so hot!” I then stretched my arms and legs and walked around the room several times without any problem. Who could have expected that suddenly, in just one moment, the rheumatism that had bothered me for over 20 years could disappear? From then on, I felt a sense of relief and lightness in my body that I had never ever experienced before.
The next day, I asked the lady I worked for, “Do you have any Falun Gong books that I can borrow?” She gave me a copy of the book Zhuan Falun and several pamphlets. I picked up a pamphlet, and after I had read only a couple pages, I could feel something spinning in my lower abdomen. She was happy and said, “You have such a predestined relationship with Falun Gong! It is the Falun adjusting your body.”
After returning home, I read Zhuan Falun until dawn and once again experienced a miracle. I had been in a car accident when I was 17 years old. The injury to my back caused hyperostosis in levels 5, 6, and 7 of my thoracic vertebrae. The bulges could easily be felt, and hurt whenever I sat down or lay down. Sometimes the pain was so unbearable that I could not breathe. As I was reading the book that night, it felt as if a saw was being pulled out slowly from the location of the hyperostosis. After I finished reading, it felt like the saw had been completely pulled out. Although I did not sleep a wink all night, I had an incredible amount of energy the following day.
I had fluid in my ears as a child, so my hearing had been poor. As I started to do the exercises, my ears felt as if they were stuffed with two balloons, which got smaller and harder. They turned into two eggs and then into two metal balls. As I shook my head, I could hear the balls moving around and giving off clear noise touching each other. The process lasted about three hours, after which I could hear much more clearly than before.
I used to suffer from synovitis in my right ankle and had no luck with medical treatments. The situation worsened after I sprained my ankle several times. It hurt badly if I stood or walked for a long time, on cloudy or rainy days, or even if I was angry or anxious. I had relied on sticking plasters for relief from the pain through the years. Sometimes the plaster was left on the ankle for too long and peeled the skin off when it was removed.
One day as the lady talked about cultivation with me, although she was speaking fast I could hear her voice as slow and rhythmic in other dimensions. Each word she uttered was crisp and clear, and hitting my ankle like a knock on the wooden fish (also known as a Chinese template block, a wooden percussion instrument used in Chinese temples). At the same time, my ankle felt very comfortable. After that my ankle was completely healed after decades of suffering.
I also previously had heart problems. One afternoon, I suddenly felt tightness in my chest. My heart felt like a growing balloon and my body like it was constrained by a rope. The more the balloon grew, the tighter the rope became. My face turned purple and breathing was difficult. The lady said to me, “Recite Master's Hong Yin.” At the time I had not read Hong Yin. So she said a sentence and I repeated it after her:
“Dafa does not leave the body,
The heart harbors Zhen-Shan-Ren;
In the world is a great Arhat,
Spirits and ghosts fear greatly.”
("Mighty Virtue" from Hong Yin)
Right after I recited the verse, I could feel a sharp knife cut the ropes that were constricting me, and the pain in my heart stopped immediately. I could vividly feel a few ropes slipping down from the sides of my body. The feeling of relief lasted a long time. My heart pain disappeared from that point on.
I have been practicing Falun Gong for over a year now. So many miracles have since happened in my life. I have shared just a few of them here. Words can't express my gratitude to Master. Every time I recall how I started practicing and all the miraculous things that have happened, I cannot hold back my tears. I must advance diligently in my cultivation to be worthy of Master's great benevolence.
