(Minghui.org) I am 74 years old and live in a mountainous area of Northeastern China. I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. I had numerous ailments back then, including heart, stomach, and kidney disease. In thinking back on how sick I was all those years, I can’t imagine how things would have turned out had I not started practicing Falun Dafa.

Before I started cultivation practice, not only was I very sick, I also had mental problems. I was famous for beating people. I once even beat my own mother!

My mental problems started when my daughter was four months old. I heard a strange noise coming from the ceiling of my house. When I went to take a look, a big snake fell from the rafters onto the floor. I was so frightened! I grabbed my daughter and ran out of the house.

Soon after that incident, I started to become mentally unstable. I had anxiety and ran around getting distracted by one thing after another. Soon afterwards, I began beating and verbally abusing others.

My conditions got so bad that I couldn’t even do housework. My mother and husband had to do all the cooking and cleaning for me. My husband struggled to make a living and searched everywhere for a treatment that could cure my diseases and solve my mental problems. Sometimes my mind went way off, and I passed out completely. I spent 34 years of my life in that wretched state! My entire family was very concerned.

Every once in a while, my mind would clear up. And when I realized how poor we were and how dire our situation had become, I would fall into a deep depression. I often thought about committing suicide.

I visited a friend of mine one day, and told her that I had come to say goodbye, and that I planned to commit suicide. She said that I should not commit suicide, and that if I did, it would only make matters worse. She then told me about Falun Dafa.

She said that Falun Dafa was an advanced cultivation practice of the Buddha school, and that it could improve one's health, and teaches people how to be genuinely good. She added that there was no charge, and that anyone who wanted to try it was welcome.

I said, “I want to learn Falun Dafa.” She was very happy for me. She then taught me the five exercises and played me the recordings of Master Li Hongzhi's lectures.

Then a miracle happened! Within just three months, my diseases and all of their symptoms completely disappeared. And my mind became clear! I felt blessed, and was grateful to Master for purifying my body.

Master Saved My Sisters and Daughter

When my relatives, neighbors, and local officials heard that my diseases had disappeared, they were amazed. One by one, they came to my house, and I told them about Falun Dafa and my amazing recovery. Thirteen people came to learn the practice after seeing for themselves just how healthy I had become.

I had several siblings who were poor and could not afford to have their diseases treated. I told them about the amazing healing power of Falun Dafa. My fourth youngest sister had kidney disease and severe edema, and was in critical condition. She was determined to learn to practice Falun Dafa and recovered a few months later.

My fifth youngest sister had severe heart disease, and her symptoms disappeared within three months after she started practicing Falun Dafa.

My sixth youngest sister had gallbladder disease. Her pain disappeared three days after she started to practice. Later, she fractured a bone. Her friends asked her go to see a doctor, but she just stayed at home, studied the Fa, and did the exercises. She recovered completely in just 20 days!

My daughter had a birth control ring, but it was implanted incorrectly. During an procedure to remove it, she began hemorrhaging. Her doctor could not stop the bleeding and asked her to seek treatment at another hospital. But no other hospital would accept her.

Fortunately she remembered that I had told her to say the words, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” if she was in any kind of trouble. She began repeating those words.

Five days later she heard a voice say, “The ring is gone.” She could not believe it and went to the hospital for an exam. The contraceptive ring could not be found, and there was only a shining spot where it had been in her abdomen. After the experience, she also started practicing Falun Dafa.

My House Did Not Catch Fire

I went out to harvest crops one summer and asked my brother to help. I was eager to leave and forgot to turn off the stove, which was on high to boil water.

I returned home to prepare food two hours later, and there was smoke throughout the house. The stove had overheated and was out of order. However, only the door was burned; there was no big fire!

Our house was built with wood. Without protection from Master, it would have caught fire. I thank Master for saving us. No words can express our gratitude for his boundless mercy.
