[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] My Family Members’ Survival Validates the Power of Dafa
(Minghui.org) I have practiced Falun Dafa for nearly ten years. Master said that families of Falun Dafa practitioners benefit from this self-cultivation practice. The power of Dafa manifested by saving my son's and mother’s lives.
Son’s Ailments Disappeared Without Medication
When my son was five months old, he was diagnosed with heart failure, asthma, pneumonia, a dysfunctional lung, a tumor under his armpit, and anemia, as well as allergic reactions to over 300 substances. He did not gain weight or grow between the ages of two and five. He was rushed to the emergency room a dozen times over five years. Each time, I would ask the Master of Falun Dafa in my heart to save my son, and my son pulled through each time.
Nevertheless, after we had spent 150,000 yuan in medical costs in those five years and went into debt, none of his illnesses were cured.
When we reached a dead end and were about to lose our son, I decided to have my son practice Falun Dafa with me and asked for other practitioners’ help. Within three months, all of his illnesses disappeared without taking any medication. This was nothing short of miraculous. It was the Master of Falun Dafa who saved my son!
Mother Once Maligned Dafa But Was Saved by Dafa
As far as I could remember, my mother always had stomach problems and ulcers. She also had a herniated disc and an inflamed gallbladder. She was in constant pain and could only eat small amounts of soggy, cold food.
She suffered from stomach cramps in June 2017 and could no longer eat. Her weight quickly dropped. Because her father and brother had died of stomach cancer and she experienced similar symptoms, she was able to predict the outcome of her suffering.
Having experienced my son’s recovery, I believed that Falun Dafa could save her. I told my father about my son’s experience and suggested that he and my mother should practice Dafa and recite, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance is good.”
I had given my parents informational materials about Falun Dafa, but they had not looked at them. Now, my father read to my mother cases of practitioners whose terminal illnesses were cured after they began practicing Dafa. He told my mother that only Falun Dafa could cure her.
Because of the persecution of Dafa by the communist government, my mother believed the Party’s propaganda and used to malign Master and Dafa. I suggested that this may be related to her present condition, but if she decided to practice Falun Dafa without any reservations, she would recover.
My parents came to stay with me. The minute I saw my mother, I knew that she was dying. I almost could not recognize her. She was emaciated, her face was dark, and she did not have the energy to talk or move her head.
I showed my parents photos of my son’s skin ulcers before he practiced Falun Dafa. When they saw how healthy he looked now, my father could not stop smiling and told my mother, “Take it seriously, and you will recover by practicing Falun Dafa.”
The next day I watched Dafa lecture videos with my mother and taught her the exercises. She slept well that night. The next day, I meditated with her and watched more lecture videos. On the fourth day, I told her to continue our prior days’ activities before I went to work. I reminded her that Master had said, “Falun Dafa is good – true thoughts alter all disasters” (“The Source of All Fa” from Hong Yin IV).
When I got home that evening, my mother’s face was no longer dark but slightly rosy. She had the energy to speak and make eye contact. I hugged her and said, “You are not going to die. You were saved by Dafa!”
My father could not be more supportive of the practice. Both of them wrote a solemn statement, “The disrespectful things we said, did, and thought about Falun Dafa are null and void.”
On the seventh day, we asked her to quit smoking, a habit she had had for more than 50 years. I asked her to read the seventh lecture of Zhuan Falun, in which Master said, “When you smoke a cigarette again, it will not taste right.”
When she tried to sneak a smoke behind our backs, she felt dizzy and vomited. She admitted that it did not taste right. That was the last cigarette she ever smoked.
Since that day, she has watched the Dafa lecture videos, read Zhuan Falun, and done the exercises no matter how terrible she feels. She started to gain weight 20 days later.
However, she still had doubts, so she went to the hospital for an exam. All her test results were normal. She had recovered completely, all her internal organs were fine, and there were no cancer cells in her stomach.
It has been eight months since she began to practice Falun Dafa, and she has regained her former weight and has a good appetite. My father said, “Please put my name on the petition to end the persecution and to rescue practitioners. Falun Dafa is good. It will be redressed one day, and justice will be served.”
