(Minghui.org) My parents were divorced when I was four-years-old. The memory of their unhappy marriage was imprinted in my mind for a long time. My grandmother took me in, but she had a bad temper; often scolded me, and hit my head with a broom handle. I grew up experiencing abuse instead of love.

When I reached adulthood, I hoped to find a good husband who treated me well. I ended up marrying an Air Force engineer, who was anything but a good person. He beat me to the point that I was thinking of paying someone to hurt him.

The miseries in my life gave me not only mental, but also physical problems. Among many of my illnesses, I had chronic nasal problems, anemia, and hepatitis. I always looked pale, and people asked if I was sick. Most of my salary was used for medication.

Because of my poor health, I was moody and often lost my temper. Although I worked for the provincial health services, a position that others envied, the complex interpersonal relationships, coupled with my poor health, made my life miserable.

Experiencing the Extraordinary Power of Dafa

When I hit a low point in my life, I was introduced to Falun Dafa and decided to start practicing it. I came to understand many truths about the meaning of life. My mind was opened; I became peaceful and came to understand that all the pains and sorrows in this world are due to bad deeds committed in this or a prior life. I followed Dafa's standards of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. All my illnesses disappeared within a short time!

Two months after I started to practice Dafa, I wanted to take a shower after returning home from Fa study. But, the water was cold. But I decided to take a shower anyway. To my surprise, the shower room was filled with warmth, and I did not feel cold at all.

After practicing Dafa, I had a lot of energy and could carry heavy objects for quite a distance to the sixth floor.

My father once told me to take a nap because I looked tired. Instead of taking a rest I did the Dafa meditation for 40 minutes. When joining my father, he was surprised because I looked energetic. He was amazed when I told him that I did not sleep, but practiced the meditation.

When on duty at the reception desk, a guest told me to take a rest because I looked tired. I just went to a quiet corner and recited some of the teachings of Falun Dafa. When this lady saw me again after a few minutes she said, “Sister, your eyes suddenly look bright and you look energetic. Your cultivating Dafa is so extraordinary. I also want to practice it.”

Turning Into a Kindhearted, Responsible and Conscientious Person

Before I practiced Dafa, I was reimbursed about 400 yuan each month for medical expenses. After I began to practice in 1997, my medical expenses dropped to zero.

I was transferred to work at the front desk, and in the cafeteria as a cashier soon after I started to cultivate. The financial procedures had many problems, but I did the best I could under the circumstances.

Once there was a difference between the cash received and the actual amount on hand, with a shortage of over 90 yuan. There was no procedure to correct this mistake, nor was there anyone who could help remedy the problem. Thus, I made up the cash shortage with my own money.

When the management found out that the cafeteria revenue had substantially increased, they realized that I was not corrupt and gave me a bonus.

After a flood, the employees were asked to donate some money. I thought to donate 1,000 yuan. I was told that managers at the department level and above donated 500 yuan. To avoid embarrassing others, I also donated 500 yuan.

“After she started practicing Falun Dafa,” the head of my working unit remarked, “her biggest change is her character. Her character improved, her interpersonal relationships improved, and she is much more responsible for her work. She no longer takes a lot of sick or personal leave.”

Falun Dafa not only saved me from the brink of destruction but also gave me a second life. I changed from a despaired and depressed person into someone who is optimistic, open-minded, confident, and healthy.
