My Experience After Practicing Falun Dafa for Five Months
(Minghui.org) I am a 58-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner who has been practicing for five months.
I was addicted to playing mahjong (a game commonly used for gambling) before I practiced. As soon as I sat down to play mahjong, my mind went blank, no matter how much I lost at the games. I even sold a gold ring for some cash so I could keep playing.
My husband was very upset with me for playing mahjong day and night and tried to stop me from going out. When he did that, I refused to cook for the family and said life was meaningless without mahjong.
I upset him so much that he began to have chest pains and felt dizzy.
My elder sister is a Falun Dafa practitioner. She often told me not to play mahjong and that Falun Dafa would enrich my life.
I knew Falun Dafa and my family had seen my sister change completely after she started practicing. Once I donated 100 yuan to make truth-clarification materials. During Chinese New Year, I passed out truth-clarifying calendars to other mahjong players.
A Dream That Changed Me
My sister once read me the poems in Hong Yin III. I felt a twitch in my heart. Several days later, I had a dream. In the dream, a huge flood surrounded me. I had no way out but I suddenly remembered to chant “Falun Dafa is Good!” Then I woke up.
The next day, after I closed the small diner owned by our family, I went to my sister's house to tell her about the dream. Then I said I wanted to practice Falun Dafa. She encouraged me by saying that Master Li (its founder) would take care of me if I made up my mind. I told her that I was serious and wanted to be a Falun Dafa practitioner.
After I returned home, I took out 6000 yuan that I had hidden from my husband and handed him the money, and then told him that I decided to practice Falun Dafa and I would quit mahjong immediately. He was very excited and speechless because he knew Falun Dafa could change a person just like my sister had experienced.
He supported me to study the Fa and practice the exercises after working at the family diner. Since I started practicing recently, in order to catch up to other practitioners, I will often get up very early to study the Fa and practice the exercises.
One morning, the alarm clock went off at 3:50 a.m. as normal, but I felt lazy that morning and wanted to sleep more. I pushed the button to turn off the alarm, but it buzzed again a short time later. I had never encountered this in the past 50 days since I started practicing Falun Dafa. I immediately woke up and the notion to sleep more was gone.
While meditating that morning, I realized that Master was watching over me and it moved me to tears.
Falun Dafa Blessed My Whole Family
My husband began to smile more than ever before and his taxi business was making more money. The second day after I started practicing, the family diner made the most money in a single day since it opened. My granddaughter, who would chant “Falun Dafa is Good” 30 times every day, got the highest score in her class. My son's temper got better. Three generations of my family now enjoy a harmonious life.
I am a new practitioner so I am not very experienced in telling people the facts of the persecution, as well as persuading people to quit the Chinese Communist Party. I asked Master Li to give me wisdom. Like magic, I could open my mouth to talk to strangers and several people quit the Party through me.
I also joined other practitioners to distribute truth-clarification materials in the villages. I didn't fear anything at all.
I have encountered many tests of my moral character, but I didn't pass all of them well because I am still attached to fame, gain and sentimentality.
I keep reminding myself not to fear hardship, study the Fa more and be a genuine Falun Dafa practitioner.
