(Minghui.org) Taking up the practice of Falun Dafa was the most significant and happiest event in my entire life. It has even made the difference between life and death!
I was a sickly child from birth, just skin and bones as a baby. Everyone who saw me despaired at my chances for survival.
As an adult, I went through two divorces. My first husband divorced me and remarried when our child was only one year old. We were forced to leave his home. The pressure brought on by the divorce almost caused me to suffer a nervous breakdown.
Two years later, I entered a second marriage. Only after we were married did I find out the reason for his persistent pursuit for my hand. It was not because he loved me, but because he wanted to take advantage of my ill health and simple kindness.
He built a false facade of a respectable home in order to pursue extramarital affairs. It wasn’t until after we were married that I found out about his mean-spirited nature, and not until after his death that I learned about his philandering ways.
Because of my severe illnesses, it was not unusual for me to spend up to half a year in the hospital. I was a familiar sight to both the doctors and nurses. But I held on to life knowing that my two young children had no one else to rely on.
In 1992, during an operation to remove two tumors from my bladder, I nearly died due to an allergic reaction to the anesthetic. In 1993, I fractured my left hip. As I was unable to afford treatment and forced to bear the pain on my own, it rendered me unable to stand straight. I walked hunched over at a 40 degree angle.
In 1994, my previously benign ovarian cysts developed into malignant tumors. Not long afterwards, the doctors detected a tumor in my brain. By that time the pain was almost unbearable and my future looked hopeless!
But somehow, as if an invisible hand was working to save my life at every critical juncture, I managed to live through each near death experience. How I managed to survive puzzled me greatly.
After I began practicing Falun Dafa, I soon realized that Master Li had prolonged my life to give me the chance to find Dafa.
In 1995, my daughter suggested I try practicing qigong. However, despite learning a few schools of practice, none of my illnesses were cured. Towards the end of 1995, some acquaintances introduced me to Falun Dafa. The practice was being taught in the park for free.
Curious, I sought out the practice site where a friendly woman gave me an introduction to Dafa, adding, “As long as you adhere to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and come here to practice the exercises, your illnesses will be cured by Falun Dafa’s Master!”
Upon hearing her utter the three words, ‘Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance,' I immediately exclaimed, “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance is wonderful!” I repeated this phrase a few times and immediately felt a soothing, comfortable feeling at the place where my hip bone had fractured.
Without even starting the exercises, I was able to straighten my hunched back and stand up straight. People around me were amazed by this. I call it a miracle. I had suffered from a severely hunched back for many years, yet with Falun Dafa’s amazing power, I was able to straighten up immediately!
I felt uncertainty while learning the second exercise. I had suffered from a number of cardiac arrests, which had required emergency resuscitation. My body and heart were both weak. I was unsure if I could sustain the position of holding my arms up in front of me. As soon as I raised my arms to eye level, both my back and heart began to hurt. The pain was excruciating, but I resolved to stand firm!
While standing there with my arms in front of me, I felt the amazing sensation of a big Falun rotating above my heart! Soon an indescribable comfort embraced me. I was filled with a profound gratitude for Master Li. With Master's care and support, I managed to accomplish 45 minutes of the exercise.
My heart condition was cured from that point on, and I felt a Falun visit each place within my sick body and exert its healing powers. Wave after wave of comfortable warmth engulfed my body from head to toe. Ever since that initial phase of my practice, I do not feel cold even in winter. I’ve even quit smoking.
“...it is not an easy thing if one wants to practice cultivation. I have said that this is a very serious matter. It is something beyond ordinary people and more difficult than anything of ordinary people. Isn’t it supernatural? Therefore, the requirement for you is higher than any matter of everyday people.” (Zhuan Falun)
After experiencing the miraculous power of Falun Dafa, I decided to live my life in strict accordance with Master’s teachings and always be a good person. To that end, I got rid of my impatience, short temper and habit of scolding people.
Although I ran our family on a shoestring budget, I refused to accept any ill-gotten gains and always tried to be considerate of others. Once I picked up a folder containing a hundred yuan. By following the address written on the folder, I returned the money to the delighted owner. On two separate occasions, I returned excess change to the cashier upon realizing their error.
One day I was hit by a car, but under Master's protection, I came away from the incident without so much as even a scratch. I did not blame the perpetrators, and my heart was filled with gratitude towards Master. In another incident, a motorcycle crashed into me from behind. My face was badly scratched, and my bicycle was destroyed.
When that happened, I recalled Master’s teaching:
“The driver indeed drove the car too fast, but how could he possibly hit someone on purpose? Didn’t he do it unintentionally?” (Zhuan Falun)
With this in mind, I refused the other party’s offer of compensation.
As my level of morality improved, Dafa continued to purify my body. But I still had a tumor in my brain and felt sleepy each time I heard Master’s lectures. This situation resolved itself within a few days, though, and I no longer fell asleep.
After a period of diarrhea to remove the unhealthy substances from my body, my swollen stomach receded, and I felt incredibly energetic. With my body feeling as light as the wind, I relished the simple pleasure of being able to walk as fast as I liked.
About a month after I began practicing Falun Dafa, I shocked my doctor while undergoing a regular health checkup, “Did your tumors disappear?”
Unable to believe his eyes, he called over two other doctors to verify his diagnosis. After repeatedly checking me over, he exclaimed, “What miracle drug have you been taking? Your illnesses are completely cured! This is an impossible miracle!” I loudly replied, “It was Falun Dafa that saved my life!”
My colleagues who had accompanied me to my appointment exclaimed, “Falun Dafa is really amazing!” Several of them immediately began to talk about wanting to learn the practice right away.
I was completely cured, although I had only practiced Falun Dafa for two months. Now I tell everyone I meet, “Falun Dafa’s Master is good! Falun Dafa is good!”
The Chinese Communist Party's (CCP's) suppression, framing and persecution of Falun Dafa has confused so many Chinese people. They believe the lies of the CCP. I sincerely hope that my personal story will help them see that Falun Dafa is truly good!
