A Rocky Life Is Renewed by Dafa

July 10, 2013 |   Narrated by a practitioner in China; Transcribed by Qing Zhen

(Minghui.org) I came from an impoverished and disadvantaged family. Now my life is full of wealth and happiness, all because of Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong). Words are insufficient to describe my gratitude to Master Li and Dafa. All I can say from my heart is “Thank you Master! Thank you Dafa!”

1. A Difficult Life

In January 1982, when I was 19, through the help of a close relative I was introduced to and married an honest and kind young man in the neighboring village.

Although poor, we were very happy because we loved each other so much.

In September 1982, my mother-in-law wanted to split the properties among us, and I refused. Because of this and some other minor household conflicts, frictions between my mother-in-law and I started to develop.

Our relationship got worse as time went by. I wanted to leave the house, but I couldn't let go of my dear husband. Although it became unbearable for me to tolerate the abuse of my mother-in-law, I didn't want my family (on my mother's side) to think that I was not filial to my in-laws. Because of this stress, I felt extremely bad and believed I was possessed by an evil spirit.

From October 1982 to January 1983, I was depressed day and night. I would yell at people for no reason. I couldn't sleep well at night. One day, after I woke up in the middle of the night, I grabbed a broom stick and started hitting my sleeping husband on the nose. In the past, no matter who I cursed or hit, he never bothered to care. But this time, he was furious and started hitting me back.

I couldn't control myself. A lot of people in my village also hit me, and I made many enemies with them. I was a very nasty person who would disclose people's private matters in front of others without any consideration of their feelings. I had even yelled at my own mother.

During this period of time, my family and relatives took turns watching me, fearing that I would go crazy and kill myself.

In January 1983, I became a bit more stable. My mother-in-law again brought up the issue of splitting the properties. After the split, my sickness recurred. In order to cure it, my husband went all over the place looking for doctors. In 1983, I gave birth to a son, and later, to a daughter. Over the next 21 years prior to obtaining Dafa in 2004, these demonic symptoms would recur whenever things went wrong. Because of my illness, I caused a lot troubles and headaches for both sides of my family.

When I came to my senses, I cried uncontrollably to my husband who had been taking care of me all these years, and said, “I will end my life soon, so that you can find a good woman to marry and have a happy life.” I secretly saved money for my husband to remarry a better wife. My husband didn't take what I said seriously. Instead, he watched me even more closely, fearing I would commit suicide. My heart was so tormented that I didn't want to live, and yet I couldn't take my life.

2. My Life Was Renewed By the Fa

In 2004, my high-school daughter suddenly got sick. She would vomit whatever she ate. She vomited a substance that looked like sticky foam. Sometimes her abdomen would swell up and it looked scary. My husband and I took her to many hospitals but they couldn't do anything to help her.

On October 22, 2004, feeling helpless and desperate, I went to look for a healer and asked her to treat our daughter's illness. On my way there, I had to cross a river which was very deep. There was no bridge and I couldn't cross it. So I came back. On my way home, I stopped at my mother's house. My heart was shattered and I felt so bad that I cried like a baby. My nephew said, “Auntie, Falun Gong practitioners say that all your diseases would go away if you recite 'Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. You should try it.” I nodded my head and remembered his words.

That night, I laid down by the fire and started to recite “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” over and over again until I fell asleep. I had a dream at about 2 a.m. about someone giving me three moon cakes. I took a bite and suddenly felt a being spring out of my body. After that, I instantly felt lighter and more relaxed. When I woke up, I surprisingly realized that the evil spirit that had possessed me for so many years had disappeared. I realized that Falun Gong is truly amazing and miraculous. After I took up cultivation in Falun Dafa, I understood that Master had cleared away the spirit for me so that I could start practicing Dafa.

The following day, I badly wanted to learn the Falun Gong exercises. I called my husband and told him that I wanted to practice Falun Dafa. He said on the phone, “I won't allow you.” He was afraid that I would be persecuted by the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP). After he hung up the phone, he slumped on the sofa. I called the practitioner who lived next to my mother's house and invited him to come over and teach me the exercises at night.

In the morning of August 11th, I woke up early and went to the river to throw away all the stuff I used to worship the evil spirit. I just had one thought: “I want to practice Falun Gong. Now that I have Master, I will be saved, my daughter will be saved and my whole family will be saved.” I told my daughter the magical power of Dafa, and as long as she recited “Falun Dafa is good” and reads Master's books, all her illnesses will be removed. My daughter recited “Falun Dafa is good” and started reading Master's books. As soon as she did this, she became very energetic. Although she hasn't entered the door of Dafa yet she has benefited from my practice in Dafa. Gradually, she completely recovered!

Later, with the help of fellow practitioners, even though I was illiterate I gradually learned to read Zhuan Falun on my own. I also learned the five sets of exercises. Shortly after I started the practice, all my illnesses disappeared. I felt the lightness of not having any illness!

It's been 10 years now since I started practicing Dafa. No matter where I am, at home, in society, or with my neighbors, I have always used Master and Dafa as my guiding principles. I have always put others' interest first and looked inward when I have conflicts with others. I try to be a good person under all circumstances. I used to say to myself: “If my mother-in-law was still alive, I would have treated her differently. I would forgive her and live harmoniously with her.” I enlightened from the Fa that all things and matters have karmic relationships, and that I should treat everyone compassionately, including my relatives. My family is blessed, all because of Master!
