(Minghui.org) I am 76 years old. I began practicing Falun Dafa in May 2005.

I had a bad cold in November 2004 and spent over 10 days in a hospital. My health got worse and worse. According to my doctor, I had hypertension, bronchitis, tachycardia, insufficient cerebral circulation, and vascular obstruction in the brain, among others health problems.

I had to keep the windows closed all the time, or else I would catch a cold. Because I took so many drugs, I felt sick at the sight of any medication. I lost hope and thought it would be better if I just died.

One day I talked to my husband about some Falun Dafa practitioners I knew. “I admire my Dafa practitioner colleagues,” I said. “They seem to be free of illness and don't ever have a cold. I want to give a try.” To my surprise, he encouraged me to learn the practice.

On May 3, 2005, I visited Ms. Zhou, a practitioner, and she showed me how to do the exercises and also played the lecture video for me. She lent me her book Zhuan Falun and encouraged me to read it every day.

After I returned home, my husband's attitude toward Dafa changed totally. He accused me of joining some political organization and said it would mean big trouble for our family. He attempted to tear the book, so I grabbed it out of his hands. “You cannot do that!” I said. “Do you realize who Master is?” He came to his senses and gave up his aggression.

As a Dafa practitioner, I tried my best to do the three things. However, my husband was worried about my safety and always tried to prevent me from attending group Fa-study and clarifying the truth.

In 2008, after I just returned home from group study, he hit me. I said in my heart, “As a practitioner, I will not hit back when hit.” I sat on the bed and said calmly, “You can beat me as you wish. I am not angry with you.” Although he hit me with a belt across my back, legs, and shoulders, I did not feel any pain. I knew Master protected me against any physical harm.

Actually, I got stronger and stronger after I started practicing Falun Dafa. Soon my health problems disappeared, and I became free of illness and always felt light, happy, and energized. After witnessing the great changes in me, my sons and daughters came to understand the wonders of Falun Dafa. My son-in-law said, “I cannot understand why the government banned such a great cultivation way.” But my husband turned a blind eye to these facts and kept harassing me.

My husband watched my every move, and our home became a kind of detention center. I gradually lost contact with other practitioners, cultivated half-heartedly, and at last started to behave like an ordinary person more and more. I had a recurrence of an old ailment and had to be hospitalized from January to May last year.

Perhaps my husband finally realized what he had done that caused this nightmare, because when I came home from the hospital, he had changed his attitude towards Falun Dafa completely. He now does more cleaning and cooking at home so that I have more time to study the Fa and do the exercises.

I know that Master helped me resolve this agonizing conflict. Without the Fa and Master, nobody could change my stubborn husband. Here I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to Master once again.

I will cultivate more diligently, save more sentient beings, and return to my original home with Master.
