How My Mother and Mother-in-Law Have Benefited from Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) My mother and mother-in-law are both 87 years old. My mother-in-law was sick again in October 2016, with her long-standing health issues, and there was nothing the hospital could do.
Around the same time, my mother fell, resulting in broken bones. They are both fine now however, and doing very well. I would like to share their stories.
My mother-in-law had heart disease and pulmonary emphysema. When she was sick again in October and taken to the hospital, her health worsened. The hospital gave her steroids for two days and then discharged her, saying that this was all they could do for her.
She became very asthmatic after returning home and could not lie down. She slept sitting on the couch. My sister-in-law felt helpless, and was simply hoping her mother could survive the Lunar New Year.
Seeing how my mother-in-law suffered, I gave her an amulet and asked her to repeat to herself, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I told her that by doing so, it could relieve her pain. She promised to recite the phrases.
She improved every day, and on the third day she was feeling good. No longer asthmatic, she could sleep and eat normally.
She said to me, “Every time I tried to lie down, I said to myself, 'Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' I could then feel my breathing improve.”
A couple months have passed and she is still doing well. She also looks younger than ever. Both of her daughters, who used to be biased against Falun Dafa because of the slanderous propaganda, changed their minds. They now encourage their mother to continue saying, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
My Mother's Story
My mother began practicing Falun Dafa in 1999. Soon thereafter, the persecution began. She was frightened and gave up her practice. She then turned to religion. In November 2016, she fell in her kitchen and fractured her femur and neck, and had to have surgery.
Before she went in for surgery, I urged her to repeat to herself, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She did not respond. She suffered with a lot of pain after the surgery, so I again asked her to say, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I also told her my mother-in-law's story. She knew about my mother-in-law's health issues. I reassured her that I only had her best interests in mind and that she should trust me.
“I cannot,” she said. “I have been with this religion for many years. A person in my religion left the group and had a bad experience.”
I then knew where she was blocked.
“I am not asking you to leave your religion,” I said. “If you understand the truth and the goodness of Falun Dafa, that will be enough.” She seemed to understand and said okay before she fell asleep.
When mother woke up, she said, “My legs feel fine, my legs feel fine! When I was sleeping and stretching them, they felt very good, as if they’d grown longer.”
I said to her, “Your trust in Falun Dafa healed you.”
She smiled and nodded in agreement. Now she truly knows—Falun Dafa is good.
