(Minghui.org) I'm a 66-year-old practitioner from Jinan City in Shandong Province. I started practicing Falun Gong on February 17, 2013. This is my miraculous story.

Many Serious Illnesses

I had heart disease and high blood pressure. After having surgery to remove blood from my brain, I suffered from dizziness, headaches, confused thinking, and insomnia. I spent a lot of money on medicine but it didn't help. I became comatose if I became angry or worried. My children were very concerned about me!

I also had psoriasis for 48 years. I took medicine and applied ointments but they didn't help. I was busy during the daytime and could ignore it, but my skin itched intolerably at night, and I couldn't get a good night's sleep. My skin was a bloody mess, and I didn't dare wear short pants in the summer, because I was afraid people would see all my scars.

Relative Introduces Falun Gong

A relative came to visit me on February 16, 2013. She was familiar with my condition and sincerely urged me to me practice Falun Gong. She introduced the beauty of Dafa to my family. I was suffering greatly at the time and was very moved by her compassion.

I started practicing the next day with the encouragement and supervision of my children. Within just a few days I started seeing some interesting results. I no longer felt so dizzy, and was much more comfortable. I thought that this practice was really amazing, and I wholeheartedly threw myself into practicing Falun Gong.

Illiterate but Able to Read Dafa

I practiced the exercises early every morning, and studied the Fa with practitioners in the afternoon. I was illiterate, and at first, I could only read slowly, one character at a time, and then one sentence at a time, with the patient help of my fellow practitioners. Zhuan Falun is such a thick book to me, over 300 pages, but I didn't get discouraged. I knew that I definitely needed to study. Master opened up my wisdom, and I was quickly able to read the Fa. I've since read Zhuan Falun more than 20 times in one year.

The True Meaning of Life

From the Fa, I came to understand the true meaning of life... to return to our true selves. Through practicing Falun Gong, I gradually returned to my true self. I started practicing with the desire to become healthy, but I became a true practitioner.

I know how to be a good person, to raise my xinxing, and how to take fame and personal gain lightly. I went from being a small-minded person, to being broadminded. I no longer haggle over losses and gains, I no longer fear my husband yelling and swearing at me, and I no longer talk back. I'm happy all day long.

Illnesses Disappear

Without my realizing it, all of my illnesses disappeared, including the heart disease and high blood pressure. The psoriasis completely recovered, and my skin became white and completely smooth. Even the scars disappeared. It was truly a miracle!

I was so fortunate to start practicing Falun Dafa. I'm so happy. Dafa is truly extraordinary!

Relatives and Friends Know that Falun Gong Is Good!

I've studied the Fa, practiced the exercises, and sent forth righteous thoughts continuously for one year. I'm in good health and seem to float off the ground when I walk. I used to be covered in wrinkles, and my cheeks were sallow, but now my color is flush. I also look much younger. When I run into friends and neighbors, they say, “How did you become so young looking? You're so pretty!” I tell them, “Falun Dafa improved my health!”

My friends and family were amazed when they stopped by for the New Year. They asked, “How did you become so young and healthy looking? What kind of tricks do you have? Please tell us.” I earnestly told them, “I practice Falun Gong. Falun Gong has given me this. It is a miracle!”

My relatives gave the thumbs-up in approval and said, “Falun Gong is good! Continue to practice. We will also practice in the future!” I told them about Falun Gong and the persecution, and also about withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. They all understood and withdrew from the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

My family was very moved when they saw the changes in me after I started practicing, and they encouraged me to continue.

My husband has benefited from my practice as well. He had serious gastric disease, prolapse of the stomach, gastric ulcers, and severe stomach pain. His health has improved a lot.

I'm deeply grateful for Master's great and mighty compassion. Falun Gong is very profound, righteous and good! I definitely need to continue to study and cultivate well.
