My Whole Family Is Blessed by Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) It has been 21 years since I started practicing Falun Dafa. Before practicing, I had eight different illnesses, including a variety of stomach problems and migraines, but all were cured in less than a month after practicing Dafa. I have never taken any medicine since then. I also became generous and humble, unlike my previous self, who was narrow-minded and arrogant.
I personally feel that if we truly practice Dafa, getting a healthy body and improving moral values are only a matter of time. Just take myself and my family as an example.
My Father Quits 30 Years of Smoking
My dad has been addicted to smoking flue-cured tobacco for over 30 years. He was rarely seen without his pipe.
In November 1998, I brought home the main text of Falun Dafa, Zhuan Falun and introduced Dafa to my parents.
He read “The Issue of Eating Meat”” in Lecture Seven the next day. As soon as he reached the part where Master Li mentioned smoking, he suddenly had no interest in smoking anymore and would even vomit at the mention of smoking.
“Others couldn't quit smoking even after taking great pains to do it. I only read this book and I quit it instantly. This book is too amazing!” he exclaimed.
The rheumatism in my dad's lower back was also cured after reading Zhuan Falun. Although he does not practice himself, he believes in and is very supportive of Dafa.
My Mother Escapes Twice from Life-Threatening Danger
On the morning of September 11, 2013, my 69-year-old mother had dropped off my niece at school after rowing our small boat across a river. When she came back, she accidentally fell head first into the river.
She does not know how to swim and tried shouting for help. Instead, she choked on the water. Gradually, she felt herself drowning, but for some reason she was not afraid.
She suddenly remembered the words on the amulet that I had given her and recited repeatedly in her heart “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good”.
Later, she saw a thick nylon rope appear beside her and she grabbed it. She pulled the rope and slowly reached the shore half an hour later.
When she looked down at the river, no one was in sight. She realized that Dafa had saved her. She later told everyone in our family what had happened.
To express her gratitude to Master, she decided to buy some firecrackers and set them off during Mid-Autumn Festival.
On August 17, 2013, my mother was picking persimmons in the backyard. She had climbed high into the tree when the branch she was standing on broke off, and she fell more than three meters.
The right side of her body was scratched by the broken branch. Her rib cage was also seriously scratched and her neck seemed to be broken as she could not lift her head.
She had no strength and could not open her eyes, nor could she hear anything. But she knew that reciting “Falun Dafa is good” could save her. She recited the words loudly, over and over again.
Initially, she could not hear herself but after reciting a long time, she gradually heard her own voice. As she recited, she could open her eyes and got up. Finally, she could even carry a bag of persimmons back home.
The whole incident lasted two hours. She did not take any medicine when she arrived home, and went to harvest rice the next day like nothing happened.
After these two incidents, my mother began practicing Dafa and is now in her seventies. She is still of sound mind and has perfect vision, not needing glasses even for her embroidery.
My Wife Starts Practicing After Witnessing the Miracles Experienced by Mom
My wife gained respect for Dafa after witnessing the two miracles experienced by my mother. Each time after I left for work, she would read Zhuan Falun secretly.
In the past, our family was persecuted badly because I practiced Dafa. She could not handle the suffering and always tried to prevent me from practicing. Now, she wanted to practice, but was afraid I'd laugh at her if I found out – so she never told me that she read my book.
After practicing, her rhinitis and constant coldness in hands and feet during the winter were cured. She has also become more caring to my parents, siblings and their children.
My Youngest Brother's Depression Disappeared After Reading Zhuan Falun Three Times
My youngest brother works in another town and has anxiety. He always felt that a mishap will happen at any time and was always afraid. His face was always gloomy.
In March 2013, when he came to my house, two practitioners were also present. Upon seeing my brother's pale complexion, one of them exclaimed, “What bitterness!”
My brother then told everyone that he's always felt an inexplicable fear and decided to listen to the suggestion to practice Dafa.
He took a few days to read Zhuan Falun three times. Finally, he said with relief, “I feel better now. My heart feels more calm.”
One week later, he decided to travel by bus to Hunan province to look for projects. When on the way there, a huge boulder rolled down the hill towards the road he was traveling on. It landed one meter away from his bus and the bus driver slammed on the brakes. My brother was not perturbed and remained very calm.
As he continued to practice, he became healthier. He used to be a hunchback but has now straightened up. His wife and his wife's family saw his changes and approve of Dafa.
My Nephew and Niece Also Benefited
Both my nephew and niece also benefited from Dafa.
When she was less than a month old, her maternal grandmother came to visit her. As she was eating lunch, she fed my niece rice – which included chilis. This was too much for her infant digestive tract.
Since then, my niece had suffered from a loss of appetite and had severe oral ulceration. The family tried seeking medical help, but it could not be cured. Eventually, they gave up on medical treatment due to financial difficulties.
In recent years, my niece has fully recovered after following my mother in reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good”.
My nephew is one year younger than my niece. When he was 7 months old, he had severe epilepsy. The doctors at the city hospital could not determine the reason for the epilepsy. They suggested visiting a bigger hospital in Beijing instead. Due to financial difficulties, the family could not bring the child there.
At 6 years old, my nephew still could not talk or walk. He could not sit up and was always drooling. Finally, the family got enough money to visit a prominent hospital in the province in July 2014.
The child was diagnosed with tuberous sclerosis (a rare multi-system genetic disease) and there was no specific medication to cure it. They gave up on the medical treatment due to the financial difficulties.
The whole family placed their hopes in Dafa. My mother always whispered into his ears, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” The child finally uttered the word “good” after some time.
After the Chinese New Year in 2015, we saw an obvious improvement in his condition, as he started walking. In the second half of the year, he became more stable in his walking and could understand our conversations. Since 2016, he could run and say more words.
The main text of Falun Dafa, Zhuan Falun has this sentence: “Since you practice a righteous way, your practice will benefit others.”
As many of my family members started practicing Dafa, it would only make sense that my nephew, too, would benefit along with everyone else.
