Falun Dafa Saved My Family from Misery Time and Again
(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995. My entire family has benefited from Falun Dafa during the past 19 years, and I wish to recount below some of what we have experienced.
My Family Suffered Hard Times
I was born in the 1950s and lived through the Cultural Revolution. My family was targeted for persecution because we were considered capitalists and royalists. My brother and sister were forced to march in the street, wear high hats, kneel on a bench, and shave their heads. I didn't escape, because people spit or threw stones at me when I was outside. My family endured a lot of hardship.
The red guards ransacked our home late one night. I suffered amnesia and my memory didn't return until after my mother died at the age of 59. I came down with neurosis and insomnia and had to rely on medication to sleep. My brothers and sisters moved on with their lives and I was left by myself.
I got married at the age of 24. I was diagnosed with tuberculosis at 25 and by the time I was 27 I was unable to work. I had to take extended sick leave and my salary was cut by 60 percent. Although I returned on and off to work, I had to take a lot of sick leave because I came down with many illnesses.
At the age of 45, in 1995, I had a stroke that could have led to paralysis. It worried me because I had to help support our family.
Becoming a Falun Dafa Practitioner
When I was at my wits' end, my friend told me about Falun Dafa and gave me the book Zhuan Falun. I fell asleep after reading several pages and slept until the next day. When I awoke, I felt that my mind was clear and I was at ease. After reading the book once, even before I started to do the exercises, my entire body was very light, my hands and feet became warm, I felt no more pain, and I had boundless energy.
Reading Zhuan Falun, I came to a much better understanding of the true meaning of life and how to be a good person. I decided to practice Falun Dafa and live by its principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I could no longer be bribed, considered others first in everything I said or did, and tried my best to do my job well. I disciplined myself to be a good person.
After stepping into the practice and doing the exercises, I returned to good health. My colleagues and acquaintances all said I had changed. Witnessing the improvements in me, my sister and two nieces also began to practice Falun Dafa.
Recovering from a Brain Hemorrhage
My mother-in-law was diagnosed with heart disease in 1993 and suffered a stroke in the hospital. The prognosis was not good, and the doctor said she might die or end up in a vegetative state. She was in the hospital for about a month. After she returned home, she was bedridden. She couldn't take care of herself and had been bedridden for two years by the time I became a practitioner.
I watched videos of Master's lectures with my mother-in-law. Soon after, she could get out of bed by herself. Gradually, she could walk without holding onto anything. She walked slowly, but she could take care of herself. After that, she told everyone that Falun Dafa is good.
Working Against Time
My brother was an official. He had been diagnosed with late stage cancer in 2002, as the cancer had metastasized and spread to his lymph nodes. It was a great shock to the family. After 10 days there was a growth on his neck, and five different-sized growths appeared within a week. They were hard, and he couldn't straighten his neck. The cancer grew quickly, and the prognosis was that he would die within less than six months. We prepared for the worst.
My sister and I went to see him. We practiced Falun Dafa and knew that it had healing powers. Besides, we had all benefited from Dafa, so we wanted him to learn it, too.
Unfortunately, it was when Jiang Zemin had begun to persecute Falun Dafa, banned the practice, and ordered all police departments, domestic security divisions, armed police, radio and television stations to denounce the practice. The Chinese people were deceived, including my brother. It was a difficult problem to figure out how to let him understand the facts about Falun Dafa, especially since time was running out.
We told him how we had benefited from it. We spoke not only about us but of many people we knew who had suffered from illnesses and who had returned to good health after stepping into the practice.
Cancer Cured Within Three Days after Listening to Dafa
My brother agreed to read Zhuan Falun. My niece let him listen to Master's (Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa) lecture recordings. He listened carefully to one lecture each day.
Listening to Lecture Three one morning, he suddenly came down with a high fever. He just had taken medication to relieve the fever, so we could not give him any more. We washed him with hot water, and around 3 p.m., his fever went down. But then he got diarrhea and suffered until about 6 p.m., when he fell asleep. He got up late in the morning the next day. He said that he had never slept that well before.
When he got dressed, he noticed that his neck was straight, and all the growths had disappeared. He was very surprised. I told him, “You listened to Master's lectures. It is Master who removed your disease. The diarrhea yesterday removed the bad things in your body.” My brother smiled. After breakfast, he listened to Master's lectures and then one or two lectures a day.
He said that he couldn't understand why the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the authorities went against Falun Dafa. He had listened to the lectures and read the Dafa books, but had only found principles on how to be a good person. He understood that Jiang Zemin was denigrating the practice. He was certain that if everyone learned Falun Dafa, society would improve.
My brother's miraculous recovery from cancer changed the thinking and attitude of many people around us. Some started to recite “Falun Dafa is good,” and some began to read the Dafa books. People who did not practice Dafa in our family also changed their understanding about Dafa.
Baby's Heart Disease Disappeared
Because of gestational hypertension, my daughter had to have a Caesarean in 2006. After the baby was born, the doctor said he had congenital heart disease. My son-in-law was devastated, because the child of one of our relatives had had the same thing and had died two years before at the age of 16. Other children in our family had the same illness, and we have experienced the problems associated with that illness.
The baby was taken to the high-risk intensive care unit. His face turned yellow and the doctor undertook emergency measures. I begged Master to save the child. After a while he improved.
The director asked for suction, as the baby weighed only 3.3 lbs and was sick. They were afraid that he would suffocate. I told the baby, “Baby, ask Master to help you spit. Hurry!” Immediately the baby spit three times, and his face regained its color. Since it was only our family in the room, I let the child listen to Master's lectures every day and read Dafa books to him. After he was out of danger we took him home.
At home, I continued to let the baby listen to Master's lectures, and his grandma also recited "Falun Dafa is good" to him. At one month his height and weight were normal.
When he was 42 days old, we took him back to the hospital. The tests showed no abnormality, and he was in good health. Now he is in the first grade. He is the tallest in his class and very healthy too.
Witnessing Dafa's miracles, many of our relatives started to practice Dafa and also benefited from the practice. They all know that Dafa is good and won't believe the CCP's lies.
I wish to tell everyone, "Please believe that Falun Dafa is good. You will benefit and have good health and a bright future!"
