Falun Dafa Gave Me a New Life
(Minghui.org) I am 64 years old and a retired pharmacy director. I have practiced Falun Gong for over a year.
I was 44 years old in 1997, and worked in a well-known local hospital as the chief pharmacist. It was the highest position, and I was named "advanced worker" every year. I was known as a strong woman since graduating from high school, and everything I did was said to be outstanding.
Illness Smashes All My Dreams and Leaves Me with Endless Suffering
I went to Beijing to buy some equipment in the summer of 1997. It was very hot and I sweat profusely. Suddenly it started to rain, and I got a chill. That same day, I had a hard time breathing. I also couldn’t lie down to sleep that night. I had to sit up in the hotel room all night long.
I checked into a hospital when I returned home and was diagnosed with asthma. For a month I could hardly breathe and slept siting up at night. If I did lie down, I couldn't breathe. Every relapse seemed near fatal, and I was rushed to the emergency room.
In the hospital, I couldn't walk. There was a restroom seven or eight steps away, but it seemed like miles away for me. I had to take a break several times just to walk those few steps. It was hard even to move. Each trip to the emergency room landed me in the hospital for over 30 days with IV's.
Even worse, I also had bacterial dysbiosis, late-stage disseminated herpes neoplasms, urine in my blood, and sinusitis.
I was on hormone replacement therapy and hurt all over. Month after month I sweat and weeped due to the pain. To distract myself, I read novels. Due to sinusitis, it felt like there was a worm moving inside my nose.
I took medicine daily and was on hormone drugs. When it was cold, I froze. Even in May I had to wear a coat. From my waist down I felt icy cold. If someone walked by me the little breeze would make me catch cold, which was often followed by an asthma attack and hard breathing.
I suffered like this for 19 years, and I didn't even go out for five years. I went to many hospitals and took all different kinds of prescriptions. All were in vain.
Marvelous Recovery after Practicing Falun Dafa
I got a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, on August 15, 2016. I read it three times in a row. I read it whenever I wasn't eating or sleeping. I thought the book was so good.
From reading the book, I understood that my suffering was due to my karma. The book pointed out that to rid oneself of suffering and change one's life, one must follow the universal principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a good person. Master said:
“The space of the universe is inherently good, and its nature is to be True, Good, and Endure, and when a person is born he has the same nature as the universe. But as more beings are created, community-like social relationships form. Some of the beings might grow selfish and gradually lower their levels, so they can’t stay at that level and have to drop. But then at the next level they become not so good again, and again they can’t stay there, so they keep dropping down and down, until at some point they finally drop to this level of human beings.”
“People only have health problems and suffering because they did bad things in the past and made karma.”
“If they want to get healed, get rid of adversity, or eliminate their karma, then they’ve got to cultivate and return to their original, true selves. That’s how all the different cultivation ways see it. A person should return to his original, true self—that’s actually the true purpose of being human.” (“The First Talk” in Zhuan Falun)
I started doing the exercises. When I did the second one, I sweat a lot and my heart beat very fast.
I had a high fever for over two months after I started practicing Falun Gong, but I believed in Master Li Hongzhi and Dafa. I was not afraid, because I knew that Master Li was cleansing my body. All of my illnesses disappeared after that.
For over 20 days after I began practicing Falun Gong, my urine was turbid purple. I did not take any medicine, and all the symptoms soon disappeared. I have been healthy and normal ever since.
When I was young, I had neurasthenia and had a hard time sleeping. Now, as long as I sleep for an hour a night, I am fine.
I was able to handle the household chores and cooking for the 2017 Chinese New Year. I cooked all the meals for the entire family without any help.
I did not have a good relationshop with my mother-in-law, but I now treat her with respect and compassion. She says that I am the best daughter-in-law. She agrees with Dafa.
One day I as I did the exercises, when bending down I saw that my whole body was aglow. After a few months, I even started to menstruate again. At that time, I was 63 years old. I really was rejuvenated. Master said,
“What will happen is that when you go sit there you’ll feel wonderful, like you’re sitting in an eggshell...” (from “The Eighth Talk” in Zhuan Falun)
When doing the meditation, I really have reached this state. I felt that my hands and arms were gone. I felt I was gone and couldn't feel anything. It was as wonderful as sitting in an eggshell.
I sometimes can't believe that I was really reborn. My celestial eye has been open since I started practicing Falun Gong. When I did the exercises, I saw that Master was purifying my body. I saw a tumor in my trachea as dark, like an oily stain in a chimney. I saw Master pick up my bad lung and throw it away. I saw Master take two bones and connect them easily.
Once when I was doing the exercises, my celestial eye saw a pathway with golden stairs. I raised my head and saw a Buddha sitting up there. There was a vacant seat beside him. He said it was mine.
When doing the exercises in the car, my celestial eye once saw that I was rising into the sky and standing at the top of Wuyue mountain. My body was huge. I once saw that the big cosmos had reorganized and the celestial bodies had changed positions.
I once saw Washington DC and then the ancient city of Rome with tall buildings and people dressed in togas.
I now often see lotus flowers when I do the exercises. They are so beautiful—beyond description. I know this is Master encouraging me.
Those Who Know How Sick I Was Know Dafa Is Good
I visited my son once when the weather was cool and I wore short sleeves. My daughter-in-law couldn't believe it because I used to wear sweaters even in the summer. She said, “You are now the strongest one in our family. You are fine when everyone else catches cold. Without seeing with my own eyes how you have changed, I would not believe that Falun Gong is so good.”
I told my children, “You all should appreciate Falun Dafa. Without it, how could I help you take care of your household chores?”
My grandson once had a high fever and started to foam at the mouth. I recited “Falun Dafa is good.” After a while, the fever went down. He came to my house and pressed his palms together in front of Master's portrait, saying, “Greetings, Master! I will love Master forever!”
Raising Awareness of the Persecution
I also clarify the truth and raise awareness about the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution so that people can learn the facts about Dafa and benefit from it.
My immediate family members are not the only ones who are grateful to Dafa. Seeing how I recovered, my relatives and friends have all learned about the power of Dafa. Four friends have since started practicing Falun Gong.
I go out to talk to people about the persecution and the evil nature of the CCP. The persecution has lasted for 19 years. Hundreds of thousands of practitioners have been arrested and imprisoned. The CCP is even involved in stated-sanctioned live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners. I advise people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations to ensure a bright future.
I am in tears after sending righteous thoughts every day. I say to Master, “Master, you gave me a new life. I must follow you to return to my true home!”
