My Husband Became a Believer When My Faith Became More Genuine
(Minghui.org) When I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1995, my husband was very supportive. He said that it was good to practice cultivation and maintain health. He often reminded me to do the exercises, study the Falun Dafa books and send forth righteous thoughts. Moreover, he often helped me hand out truth clarification materials. My husband never complained about the money I spent to make the materials we handed out.
However, he did not believe that cultivation could allow one to reach Consummation. The other practitioners and I tried to explain it to him many times, but he always said, “If you guys can fly just one inch off the ground, I will believe you.”
Therefore, I just treated him as a person with low enlightenment quality.
One day in October 2007, someone reported me to the authorities in for talking to a student about Falun Dafa. About eight officers arrived at my home to arrest me. I locked myself in the kitchen and refused to be taken away. They could not get in and threatened to arrest my mother and husband instead. My husband was so traumatized that he was not able to concentrate after the incident. He was absent-minded and couldn't work.
Even though my husband was in a fragile condition, police officer Liu Dongsheng often threatened him and extorted money from him. Liu warned him that I would be arrested if he exposed Liu’s blackmail and harassment. By the time I learned of this, my husband had already given him two thousand yuan.
During a hospital exam in 2013, we discovered that my husband had some health problems. The results showed that he had many chronic issues, such as high blood pressure, fatty liver, lacunar infarction, and hydrocephalus. He also had a herniated lumbar disc, which is what we had initially gone to the hospital to check.
He had a stroke in May 2016 and half of his body became paralyzed. Moreover, his hydrocephalus caused brain atrophy, and he developed dementia. He often scratched his scalp with his fingers, and his scalp constantly bled. Although his stroke was under control, his hydrocephalus could not be cured.
He fell on December 13, 2016, and fractured one of his vertebrae. After lying in bed for two months, he could sit up. Then, he fell off the bed and damaged other areas of his spine. After being bedridden again for two months, he could walk by himself. A couple of practitioners and I saw this and were happy for him. However, he then suddenly fell in front of us and hurt another vertebra. We took him to the hospital, and the doctor said that there was no hope for him and that he would be bedridden for the rest of his life.
One of the practitioners said to me, “It's the first time I came to your home, and he fell down. It seems that I still have problems in my cultivation!”
I was shocked by what she said. Then I remembered that Master said in “Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia:”
“… one person practicing, the whole family benefits ...”
I thought, “What she said makes sense. Why did my family member not benefit from my cultivation?” Therefore, I told the practitioner, “If you have any shortcomings, mine are much larger than yours.”
Rethinking my husband's illnesses and wounds, I clearly understood that I had a lot of problems in my cultivation. With help from other practitioners, I started to diligently study the Fa and found a lot of loopholes, which had been dangerous to ignore for so long.
I was alarmed to find that I had so many shortcomings. How could any family member benefit if I did not cultivate myself well? I felt really apologetic to Master and to my husband.
I told my husband, “You have suffered so much all because I did not cultivate myself well. Let us together ask for Master's forgiveness.”
Therefore, we pressed both hands together in front our chests (Heshi) and asked for Master's forgiveness and salvation.
On June 17, 2017, my husband fell again.
Four days later, he sat up in bed and wanted to stand up. I held his hands and helped him stand up. It was a miracle. He started to walk. I kept reciting, “Thank you, Master! Thank you, Master!”
My husband cried and shouted, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Thank you, Master!”
My husband then threw away more than 10 types of medicine that he used to take. He started to practice Falun Dafa, clarify the truth to people, and send forth righteous thoughts. So far, he has helped three people to resign from the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated associations.
A few days ago, my husband had a physical examination. His fatty liver was gone, his blood pressure was normal, and the lumbar disc herniation had disappeared; all without taking any medicine.
His health is back to normal now, except that he is a little slow in walking. My husband experienced the miraculous nature of Falun Dafa.
