Practicing Falun Dafa Cured My Chronic Ailments
(Minghui.org) I have practiced Falun Dafa for 15 years and have benefited from it tremendously. I would like to share some of my experiences.
I used to have many ailments such as heart disease and different forms of arthritis. Because of my herniated lumbar disc, in particular, I had to take a six-month sick leave, and I had to be careful even when yawning or lying down.
I tried various therapies--Western medicine, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, and electrotherapy--but none of them worked. I thought of suicide, but I was worried about my two young children, so I gave up that idea.
My daughter's coworker gave her a copy of Falun Gong in late May 1998. She brought the book home and I really liked. We went to a nearby group exercise site that evening and learned the movements. I got up at 4 a.m. every day for group exercise and studied the Fa in the morning and in the evening. Because my daughter was already married and my son went to school in another city, I had plenty of time to study the Fa and tell others about Falun Dafa. That laid a solid foundation for me to remain determined when the persecution started later on.
One day when I watched Master's video lecture, I began menstruating, even though I had stopped more than two years before. I could not understand it and complained to another practitioner. She surprisingly said it was a good thing. I then realized that my body was cleansed and had become younger as a result of the practice. I was very thankful for Falun Dafa and Teacher.
In addition, all those ailments that had bothered me earlier, even the most troublesome herniated lumbar disc, also disappeared. I felt very comfortable and energetic--like a young person. Seeing the changes in me, my daughter was delighted and said she would also practice sometime later.
I was born in a seaside city in Shandong Province and married a marine officer. My husband returned to his hometown after retiring from the marines and found a job there. I followed him and took care of our two children. Despite the big changes in our lifestyle, we got along well with each other and had a happy life.
A woman at his workplace found my husband attractive and they had an affair. It was already too late by the time I found out. I have a mild temper and did not know how to deal with it. Plus, the children were still young and my family was far away. I was often in tears and even thought of suicide.
It was the practice of Falun Dafa that later helped me understand where our hardships come from. Because of karma accumulated in the past, including previous lifetimes, we encounter this or that kind of trouble. Only by being moral and cultivating ourselves can we stop the cycle of hardship and sorrow and return to our original, pure state. I felt so fortunate and happy to be a practitioner.
Miracles I Experienced
When I was riding my bike in August 2004, a motorcycle ran into me. I was thrown three yards before I landed in the road and passed out. Upon waking up, I saw a crowd around me, including the driver, a young woman. I slowly sat up and said to her, “I know you did not hit me on purpose, plus I am a Falun Dafa practitioner and my Teacher told us to be considerate of others. You can leave now and I will not ask you for money. Please do keep in mind that ‘Falun Dafa is good’ and ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’”
A middle aged man said, “Please stop joking, the traffic police will come soon. I have a taxi cab and I can take you to a hospital.” I thanked him but got up and left. As soon as I got home, I did the chores and prepared the meal as usual. When my children returned from work and saw me a little different, they asked what had happened. I briefly told them, and they insisted on taking me to a hospital for an X-ray. I said no, but they did not give up.
The X-ray showed that even my backbone deformity associated with my herniated lumbar disc had disappeared! I was very happy. When doing the second exercise that evening, however, I found it difficult to raise my arms. Plus, my stomach felt stiff and I could hardly eat anything. I ignored it all and kept doing things as if nothing had happened.
When I was washing dishes three days later, there were some noisy movements in my stomach. I knew Teacher was correcting my stomach and I did not worry at all. Everything went back to normal the next day, from my arms to my stomach. I was very thankful for Teacher’s help.
Above are some of my experiences. I am so happy to be a practitioner and be blessed by Falun Dafa. Please look into Falun Dafa, and you may experience some of them yourself.
