New Practitioner: The Changes I Experienced After Cultivating for One Year
(Minghui.org) I found an old friend online one day at the end of 2007. Jingxin and I lost contact 13 years ago and were so happy to encounter each other online. During our communication, I found she was hesitant to talk about something. I told her to speak frankly, as we were true friends. She asked me, “Did you withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)?”
The CCP's slander of Dafa at that time was overwhelming, as most people's only channel to learn about Falun Dafa was through the media which was controlled by the CCP, and it was intent on destroying Falun Dafa. As a friend of Jingxin, I did not want to lose the friendship and did not want to disappoint her, so I withdrew from the CCP immediately when she asked me to do so.
Questions about Falun Dafa
I had a question in my heart. What was Falun Dafa? Why were there so many people practicing it and why was it being persecuted by the CCP? I only had one thought at that time: I want to know more about Falun Dafa.
I took the train to Changchun from Shandong Province in 2008 to meet with Jingxin. She told me about Falun Dafa and about the torture her husband suffered when he was arrested, just because he practiced Falun Dafa. I was in tears hearing of his suffering. I also met with other Falun Dafa practitioners there. They were all good people. All my concerns were gone. Jingxin gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun and a CD that teaches the exercises. She said that it may help my hearing loss of more than 30 years if I practiced Falun Dafa.
I listened to Master's lectures when I got home. I did not believe fully in Dafa at that time. While listening, I felt a powerful force flowing into my ears. It scared me at the time. In retrospect, I knew that Master was taking care of me and was cleansing the problems with my ears. However, at that time I had nobody to talk to about it, so I stopped listening to Master's lectures.
I fell sick in 2013 and went to the hospital for a check up. There was a tumor as big as an egg in my stomach. So I had an operation to remove it. This was the second time I had an operation to remove the tumor. After the operation, Jingxin asked me if I studied the Fa. I looked within myself, and I realized that I was totally lost in ordinary society. I wasted two years of time and was driven by fame, benefit and other attachments. I had been in a bad mood and had been unhealthy physically and mentally.
I started to study the Fa and do the exercises everyday. I behaved in accordance with the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I gradually started to understand the teachings of Falun Dafa. I felt the rotation of the Falun (law wheel) and my body being purified.
Whenever I did the exercises, I could feel the cleansing of blackish things from my ears. The wound from my last operation had already healed, but it started to have water come out from it without hurting at all. I knew it was Master Li (the founder of Falun dafa) cleansing my body from the root.
I previously had serious allergies on my face. Thus I dared not use any lotions. In addition, there was a large area of a dark brown mark on my face. During that period, my face hurt whenever I washed it. This lasted for a few days. When this stopped, there were no allergic reactions on my face, and the dark brown mark on my face became barely visible. My skin became white.
My young daughter had a conflict with my husband after the 2015 New Year and refused to have dinner. I went over to amuse my daughter. However, when my two hands touched each other, I felt my wrist was broken. It was so painful that I could hardly stand it. My husband supported me to stand up. I then found that the small tumor I previously had that was as big as a peanut on my wrist had disappeared. My whole family was so happy.
Many Blessings from Falun Dafa
I have only practiced for about one year, but I have changed a lot. My temper became much better, and I became gentle. My hearing improved a lot. Previously, I could hear nothing without my hearing aid, but I can now talk with people normally and can hear even subtle sounds.
I bought new clothes and necessities for my parents-in-law every year and gave them an allowance. My mother-in-law was so moved and told people she has a daughter now. My family environment also changed, and there has been no fighting at all. Everything became harmonious.
All these changes occurred because of my cultivation practice. My mother used to refuse to listen to the truth about Falun Dafa; however, she started practicing after witnessing the changes in me. I know I am just beginning my journey of cultivation. It is impossible to express the blessings we have received from Master. We can only study the Fa well and be diligent.
This is just my personal sharing. I hope all new practitioners and those who were not diligent will become diligent in cultivation. We should cherish this precious opportunity!
