Truly Blessed to Be Practicing Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I started to practice Falun Dafa in 2011. Amazed by the miraculous health benefits that I experienced, many of my family and friends also started practicing. I have been putting my heart into telling people about the persecution and that Falun Dafa is truly good.
No More Migraines
I had suffered from severe migraines for decades before finding Falun Dafa. Every time the headaches attacked, I rolled around on my bed, pricked myself with needles, and took pain killers. This was common knowledge at work and among my friends. Friends would even give me pain killers as gifts when they returned from a trip abroad.
In 2011, the migraines began to make me lightheaded. The pain was worse than a headache. I had to remain very still when the migraine struck, or I would feel dizzy and vomit. An ambulance frequently came to my home during these attacks. Within a few months, I lost 30 pounds. It was so painful that I wanted to die.
Doctors of Western medicine could not determine what was wrong with me. Doctors of Chinese medicine tried various herbal treatments. Nothing worked. I was so desperate that I tried alternative treatments: drinking aconite water, burning mugwort sticks, and hiring the service of witch doctors. My headaches only got worse.
After six months of this excruciating pain, a Falun Dafa practitioner visited me and gave me Master Li's lectures. The first day I listened to the Falun Dafa lectures, I began to cry for no reason. The headaches that bothered me for decades and the dizziness disappeared.
I was determined to continue this practice. I threw away all my medicines and other qigong books. Other than eating or sleeping, I spent all my time studying Falun Dafa books and doing the exercises.
At first I endured the migraines without taking any medication. The last time it happened was at 3 a.m. one morning. I felt dizzy and could not stand up. I asked my husband to read Falun Dafa books to me.
As he read, I began to feel relaxed and fell asleep. I woke up three hours later without feeling any pain. I then did the five sets of Falun Dafa exercise as usual.
My daughter was amazed by what she saw. “Mom, if this happened before, you would have called an ambulance. I should have videotaped this. Falun Dafa is miraculous!”
Since then, the migraines have never returned.
Other chronic ailments that had bothered me for more than twenty years—frozen shoulder, cervical spondylosis, and uterine fibroids—also left me.
Family and Friends Change Their Attitude Toward Falun Dafa
Witnessing how I miraculously recovered my health through Falun Dafa, my husband also began to practice. My daughter told others about my experiences of practicing Falun Dafa, and liked to listen to the experience sharing of practitioners. She said, “I have not started to practice Falun Dafa yet, but I will practice it in the future.”
My experiences helped my parents and sisters change their prejudice against Falun Dafa. All of them became supportive. Some of them started to read Falun Dafa books or do the exercises.
A friend that I call Grandma Wang used to be against Falun Dafa. I visited her in 2013 and told her about how my health returned after practicing Falun Dafa. She was very interested, but said she did not have time to do the exercises.
I told her to remember “Falun Dafa is good!” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance is good!” She agreed and recited these two phrases every day. Within twenty days, she told me that her hypertension was gone. She has now started to practice Falun Dafa. Now she has completely recovered from her cardiac diseases, and her hair has turned from gray to black.
Grandma Wang urged me to tell her friends about Falun Dafa. We visited a store owner and her sister who were Grandma Wang's friends. Both were very supportive. They quit the CCP and the older sister started to read Falun Dafa books.
I later had a chance to visit Switzerland. There I met an old friend from France, and told her about how I recovered my health. She immediately looked up Falun Dafa on the Internet. Soon she ordered Falun Dafa books and DVDs, and asked me to teach her the exercises.
Many of my friends saw the goodness of Falun Dafa through my personal experience. After some of them started the practice, they told others about their own experiences. We formed a group to read the Falun Dafa books regularly in my home, and to share our experiences so that we could improve together.
Urging People to Quit the CCP and End the Persecution
One day as I stopped by a hospital, I realized how fortunate I was. I could have been like the patients there, on the verge of death, if I did not practice Falun Dafa. I then made up my mind to end the persecution towards Falun Dafa practitioners by helping people to quit the Chinese Communist Party.
I met a retired government official in my neighborhood. I told him that the CCP had killed more than 80 million Chinese people.
He agreed. “More than 80 million. I know this party well because I have been a part of it.”
I asked him if he knew about Falun Dafa. He raised his thumb in approval. “Falun Gong is great! Li Hongzhi is amazing to attract so many followers!” He soon agreed to quit the party.
I have been telling my friends about Falun Dafa and also helping them to quit the CCP. Some are government officials.
I also wanted to help people whom I do not know. Last year, I started to make phone calls to strangers. Whenever I hear someone renounce their affiliation with the CCP, I feel gratified and happy for them.
I am very fortunate to have a supportive family and a group of friends who practice Falun Dafa together. I cannot express how grateful I am for Falun Dafa.
I am determined to diligently cultivate myself so that I may be worthy of Master's great compassion.
