Life Renewed After Beginning to Practice Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) I am 68 years old. When I was thinking about ending my life 18 months ago because of my bad health and the loss of my husband, Falun Gong saved me and gave me a new life.
Beginning the Practice at a Desperate Time
I had to retire at 44 due to severe problems with a lumbar intervertebral disc. In the past 20 years, I had developed high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, optic atrophy, pheochromocytoma and more. I spent a lot of money on treatment. I took so much medicine but got no better. I had to visit emergency rooms every year.
I experienced many changes in 2014. I suddenly suffered brain infarction in March. My hands and feet became numb, and I had difficulty walking. Even worse, my husband passed away at the end of the year. I completely broke down mentally and wanted to end my life.
Several of my colleagues and friends are Falun Gong practitioners. They came to comfort me and share their cultivation stories. They wanted me to learn the practice and told me about its miraculous effectiveness. With no other way out, I wanted to try as well, but I still had doubts.
One of the practitioners brought me the books Zhuan Falun and Hong Yin and other Falun Gong materials on November 17, 2014. I began to read Zhuan Falun. While reading chapter three, I became extremely happy and excited, and felt that I suddenly understood everything. I had found the true meaning of life. Since then I have been deeply drawn by the principles in the book. I read two chapters every day and do the exercises daily.
Since I had trouble walking, I got around with the help of a walker. It had been troublesome for me to push it around. However, shortly after I began the practice, one day, when I went out, it was really easy for me to push the walker around. I was so surprised and happy at the same time. I knew that Master was helping me.
Another time, my child was driving the car while I was in the passenger seat. When another car suddenly changed into our lane in front of us, I felt our car was about to hit it. I cried out, “Falun Dafa is good!” Our car immediately stopped, and a potentially terrible crash was avoided.
One day as I watched the Falun Gong exercise teaching video, I suddenly became dizzy and sweaty while holding the wheel in front of my body. I collapsed to the floor, but I did not feel any pain, nor was I afraid.
I remembered Master's teaching in Zhuan Falun, “If you do not cultivate, they will not take care of you. If you do cultivate, they will help you all the way to the end.” So I asked for Master's help. An hour later, I was back to normal.
After the incident, my tinnitus, which had bothered me for a long time, disappeared completely. My insomnia and dizziness got better, as well. I became more steadfast in believing Dafa. I also realized that I should let go of my illnesses. I no longer took any medicine or got injections.
Now I am a completely new person. Not only did I regain a healthy body, I also came to understand the meaning of life. This is truly a miracle.
I sincerely thank Master for his compassionate salvation and thank fellow practitioners for their help and support.
