Once Only Able to Crawl, Elderly Woman Sees Amazing Change After Learning Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) One day in August 1998, I sat and rested on my grandson's wagon after crawling to the bank of a creek in front of my home. Soon, a friend who practiced Falun Dafa, happened by. Seeing how much pain I was in, he suggested that I try doing the Dafa exercises.
I was anxious to alleviate my suffering, so, despite the pain, I crawled to his home by pushing myself along on the wagon. His wife taught me the exercises. I withstood the pain and learned the movements. As I did the exercises, the pain subsided, and my body gradually straightened. It was amazing!
After I learned the exercises, I was able to walk home. When my husband saw me walking instead of crawling back, he was stunned. I've practiced Falun Dafa ever since.
I'm 72 years old now. However, before I became a practitioner, I was always competitive with a strong personality and little tolerance. I would argue with anyone who irritated me. Years ago, while doing a folk dance, my left leg was injured. Soon afterward, I was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, and my left leg became much thinner than my right leg. My back was in constant pain, and I eventually became humpbacked.
When I went to the county hospital, I was told that my spine had become dislocated. I tried various treatments, including massage and deep tissue heating, but nothing helped. I could move only by using a chair or by crawling on the floor from the bed to the sofa. The pain was excruciating and beyond description. I did not sleep well at night. This situation went on for more than six months.
Even though my husband was in poor health, he had to do all the household chores. He suffered a stroke when he was only 45 years old; as a result, one of his arms was partially paralyzed.
I Became a Kind Person After Learning Falun Dafa
One day shortly after I began doing the exercises, I felt as though someone punched my back. My spine became normal. My left leg soon started to go back to normal. My other illnesses gradually disappeared. I resumed doing all the household chores. I was overjoyed!
By following Dafa's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in my daily life, I became more reasonable and kindhearted. I understood the meaning of life.
My Family Is Grateful That I Practice Dafa
My family witnessed my miraculous recovery and support my practice, even after the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) its persecution of Dafa. Because my husband feels that our whole family has benefited from my practicing Falun Dafa, he helps me raise awareness about the persecution.
My husband is 73 years old. He had a stroke 28 years ago. After I began practicing Falun Dafa, his stroke symptoms went away, and he didn't need his medicine anymore. In fact, he became very healthy. My son, daughter, and grandsons all know that Falun Dafa is good, and they send holiday greetings to Master every year.
I cook for my whole family, including my son, daughter-in-law, and grandson. I appreciate Master Li (the founder of Falun Dafa) for saving me and giving me good health and a happy family.
Using my experience as an example of how wonderful Falun Dafa is, I've talked to all my friends and neighbors. One lady my age lives close to my apartment. Whenever she sees my walking briskly up the stairs, she tells everyone, “Look at her! At her age, climbing the stairs so quickly. Falun Dafa practitioners are all very healthy. Falun Dafa is good!”
