Greetings, esteemed Master! Greetings, fellow practitioners!

Stunning Changes after Starting to Cultivate

I was born with a brain disorder that contributed to my very bad temper. As a baby, I would cry until my face turned purple. I left school after the first grade, because I was unable to remember anything taught at school.

My husband is a military officer. I used to get angry with him for no reason. He had to cajole me and let me have my way. He did all the household chores because I was unable to do any type of work.

I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, at the age of 26. At first I could not read Zhuan Falun, but I listened to other practitioners during group Fa-study. I thought, “I am a Dafa disciple, how can I help Master rectify the Fa if I cannot even read?” I asked Master to help me, and after I did so for a third time, I could read every word in the Dafa books!

I also became more thoughtful and tolerant toward my husband. As I cleaned up after he threw up because he drank too much, I thought, “I cultivate Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. He will stop drinking on his own.” The next day when he woke up, my husband apologized and said he would no longer drink hard liquor.

After my husband saw the changes in me, he became very respectful of Dafa. He always tells his colleagues, “My wife became so much better after she started practicing Falun Dafa.”

Non-practitioner Understands Dafa's Requirements

After the persecution started, I began to make my own Dafa truth-clarifying materials. At first my husband did not understand why I would tell strangers about Falun Dafa.

“If it weren't for Dafa, I would not have changed for the better,” I said. “If someone who had a stroke becomes healthy after accepting the Dafa informational materials and from reciting 'Falun Dafa is good,' how blessed is his family?” My husband understood, became very supportive, and believed in Dafa.

When he broke his arm, he did not go to the hospital, but recited the two sentences “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” His arm did not get better and was swollen for a month, so my mother got worried and suggested a folk remedy.

“I am not going to take any folk remedy. If my arm gets better, was it because I recited the two Dafa sentences or from the remedy?” Just as he finished his sentence, the swelling began to go down rapidly. A few days later, his arm was as good as new.

My husband also makes dinner whenever he has time so that I can focus on my Dafa work. He often says, “Our home is the best. I don't even want to go out and spend time eating and drinking with my friends.”

I am grateful to Dafa for showing my husband the preciousness of Dafa.

Ordinary Person Looks Within

A few years ago, my older sister and I opened a hair salon. My sister likes to dress up, and she looks young. After several customers told her that she looked younger than me, I decided to visit a beauty salon. I thought about buying some expensive make-up.

After I got home, my husband scolded me for visiting a beauty salon. I thought to myself, “I have changed so much from cultivating Dafa. I earn money at the hair salon. What's wrong with me going to a beauty salon?” But he said, “I haven't felt this angry since I married you, but now I want to hit a wall!”

Suddenly I remembered Master's Fa:

“Dual cultivation of nature and longevity means that while cultivating your character, you are also cultivating longevity, or in other words, you are transforming your innate body. While your body is transforming and human cells are being gradually replaced by high-energy matter, the aging process slows down. Your body will show signs of returning to youth, returning gradually and transforming gradually. When it’s finally completely replaced by high-energy matter, your body will have been entirely transformed into another kind of physical body. That kind of body, like I said, will have gone beyond the Five Elements, it won’t be within the Five Elements anymore. And your body will never degenerate … On a lighter note, young women like to do facials to get fairer and better skin. I’d say that if you truly do a dual practice of nature and longevity you’ll naturally get that, and I can guarantee you won’t need to do facials.” (Zhuan Falun)

I was ashamed that I had considered buying beauty products instead of believing in Master's Fa. Master said that practitioners' bodies are made of high-energy matter. I did not have strong enough righteous thoughts to believe in the Fa. I should be looking young and validating the Fa. Once I realized my mistake, my husband told me that he was no longer annoyed.

I told him that I was wrong about going to the beauty salon. My husband said, “You practitioners should look young naturally. There is no need to visit a beauty salon, right?”

He also told me that he had “learned how to look within, You have changed so much since you cultivate in Dafa. I was wrong in bullying you about going to a beauty salon.”

Thank you, Master and Dafa. We both have changed.

Negating the Illusion of Persecution

One night I dreamed that a fellow practitioner and I were arrested. I woke up and felt surrounded by negative energy. I had planned to distribute Dafa informational materials in a nearby village with fellow practitioners the next day. I believed that the evil in other dimensions was trying to stop me from saving people--and that my dream was an illusion. I sent forth righteous thoughts to cleanse my environment.

After some time, I felt that I was no longer afraid and I was filled with righteous thoughts. The next day, a fellow practitioner stopped by and said that she had lost her house key. She thought that this was a bad sign and wanted us to cancel our trip.

One of my sisters, who is also a practitioner, came to my home and said that someone had followed her. I went outside and noticed a neighbor coming home, so she was not followed.

Another practitioner arrived wearing the dress I saw in my dream. I was determined to negate the illusion. I picked up the bag of material, and then realized it was the same bag as in my dream. I was just about to put it down, when I thought, “Am I going to acknowledge the illusion?” I walked out the door with the bag of materials.

As we were getting into the car, my husband accidentally locked the car key inside. He tried to open the door with a clothes hanger but couldn't. I asked Master to strengthen me, then walked up to the car and pulled the handle. The door opened.

We distributed the materials without any problem, just as we had planned.

When we returned home, my husband commented on how good he felt. I learned that, because I did not acknowledge the illusion and did what Master had wanted us to do, Master strengthened us.

Over the past 17 years I have changed from someone who could not read and had a bad temper into someone who can read Dafa books and is a Dafa disciple with righteous thoughts. I am determined to be more diligent in doing the three things and save more people.
