Practitioners Recall Touching Cultivation Experiences
(Minghui.org) Practitioners in our village and other local villages got together and talked about our cultivation stories. We opened our hearts and recalled the many touching stories we had experienced during our cultivation. I would like to share a few of them here.
Reading Zhuan Falun For the First Time
Fifty-four-year-old Lizhen said that the first time she opened the book Zhuan Falun, she saw a huge character for the word “Joy” on every page, and that every word and page glowed. She decided to immediately begin cultivating in earnest.
Soon after, her waist pain and leg pain were gone. She could stand up straight and work. She was so excited that she continued to do the Falun Dafa exercises every day.
One day, she started to do the exercises after lunch. Two children came and ran around her. When she grabbed a broken chair to move it out of the way, she cut both her hands, which started bleeding heavily. However, the wounds on both her hands were completely healed the next day.
Lizhen later began to experience chest pain. The pain was so terrible that she could hardly breathe. She had to stay in bed for a week. She went to see a doctor but was told that she was perfectly healthy. When it dawned on her that she was a cultivator and shouldn't have any illnesses, the pain disappeared. Ever since then, she's never felt sick.
“Medicine Jar” Becomes Healthy
Yumei told us she used to be sickly before she began to practice Dafa. She had bronchitis and arthritis. Her breathing was as noisy as an old bellows. She couldn’t do anything physical. All she could do was to take her medicine and get injections. Her husband loudly complained that all his hard-earned money was given to hospitals and thrown into the “medicine jar” (his wife).
Soon after she started practicing, the former Chinese Communist Party leader Jiang Zemin launched the persecution of Dafa. After her husband watched TV programs that slandered Falun Dafa, he strongly opposed her practicing. One evening, they had a heated argument about it. Yumei decided that she would continue to practice, but she cried herself to sleep that night.
When she fell asleep, she dreamed that she spat out gallons of blood. The next morning, she saw that the mucus she had blown out of her nose was bloody. However, she's felt very energetic since then. She is now able to do physical work and no longer needs any medicine.
Because the “medicine jar” is now healthy, Yumei's husband stopped opposing her cultivation practice.
Husband Supports Wife's Appeal Trip
Seventy-one-year-old Jizhen said she used to cry every day after her 28-year-old son died in a car accident. She also had unbearable pain in her leg and a tumor in her thyroid. She and her husband were nearly overcome with grief.
After she started practicing Falun Dafa, Jizhen's illnesses were gone. She now smiles every day. Joy has returned to her family. Her husband told her, “I'm benefiting from your cultivation.”
When the persecution was launched in 1999, Jizhen wanted to go to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. However, she didn't have enough money for the trip. Her husband borrowed 500 yuan from his friends for her trip. Jizhen has been detained four times for telling people about Dafa. Her husband does his best to rescue her every time.
Blessings from Dafa
Forty-five-year-old Zhenqi was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism in 1997, only one year after she got married. She tried all kinds of expensive medicines and supplements but couldn't get pregnant. One day in 1999, when Zhenqi went to visit her grandma in a hospital, she heard someone mention that Falun Dafa is beneficial to health. She asked around where she could learn Falun Dafa and began to practice Dafa in May.
Soon after, she felt healthy and energetic. A medical exam showed that her thyroid was normal. She had a healthy son in 2001. Her whole family was overjoyed and grateful for the blessings from Dafa.
My Neighbor Stops Persecutors
Seventy-three-year-old Xiu'e suffered two major tribulations. Her 20-year-old son died in an accident, and then her husband fell ill and passed away. Xiu'e couldn't withstand such heavy blows and became sick herself. She was so upset she couldn't sleep and vomited at night. Since she couldn't afford any medical treatment, she didn't go to see a doctor. A Falun Dafa practitioner in her village taught her how to do the exercises and suggested that she read Zhuan Falun. Even though she never went to school and couldn't read, within 18 months, she was able to read Zhuan Falun.
After she understood the principles of Falun Dafa and why things happen unexpectedly, she was able to accept her son's death. She also recovered her health.
Having witnessed how Xiu'e became peaceful and healthy, her next-door neighbor was completely convinced of Dafa’s goodness. One time, local authorities came to look for Xiu'e. Her neighbor stopped them and told them that she wasn't home. When they tried to enter her home to search for Dafa books, Xiu'e's neighbor stopped them by threatening them with his shovel.
