(Minghui.org) My mother started to practice Falun Dafa on August 6, 2012. Since then, she has experienced great benefits. However, it was not easy to help her understand Dafa and embrace it.

Unwilling to Quit the CCP

She joined the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in 1960. I told her that the CCP was corrupt and that she should quit it. However, she refused to listen.

She had many illnesses including severe disorders of the heart. She was on daily medication and she had a large number of western and Chinese medicines.

She got worse when she was 79 years old and could not sleep. I told her to recite “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” But, she refused and said that it was just superstition.

I took her to a heart specialist and she seemed to get better. She then suddenly experienced different symptoms, but the doctors were unable to diagnose her condition.

Running Scared

One particular night she was very cold and wanted to get into warmer clothing. She extended her hand and touched a hairy hand. My father got up, but he saw nothing. My mother was scared and asked if she could stay at my house, because this episode scared her.

A fellow practitioner visited me and talked to my mother about Falun Dafa. My mother admitted that I changed a lot since I started cultivating Dafa. For example, she said that I no longer argued with my husband, did all of the household chores and treated people better.

Because of the changes in me, she began to practice Falun Dafa, and within three months she no longer felt the symptoms of any of her illnesses. She could sit cross legged when she did the Falun Dafa meditation exercise.

She quit the CCP after she read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and said: “I was cheated for over 50 years.”
