Journey of a Diligent Practitioner
(Minghui.org) Although I suffered from many diseases, including heart disease and kidney disease, the hospital was no longer willing to take care of me. So I tried to consult a witch doctor and a fortuneteller, yet both refused to see me.
I then went to see another fortune teller in October 1995. As soon as he started telling my fortune, he was stricken by excruciating stomach pain. “I can't tell your fortune,” he said, panting. “It's beyond me, please go. I won't charge you.”
My younger brother and his wife listened to my story of failing to cure my illnesses. That’s when she handed me Falun Gong, the introductory book to the cultivation practice of Falun Gong. She asked me to read it as soon as I could.
Extraordinary Power of Falun Gong
I asked my husband to check out the Falun Gong practice site. When he came back from checking it out he brought back Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong, and I read it that night.
My third eye had opened during this time, which allowed me to see that the book Zhuan Falun was shining in a golden light. This book felt as if it weighed around 80 pounds, and when I opened it, every character was moving. Besides, I saw people in red and white robes, children sitting in meditation, and many Falun (the emblem of Falun Gong) while holding Zhuan Falun in my hand.
When doing the exercises at the practice site, and when reading Zhuan Falun, I felt many bad substances being eliminated from my body. Within three days, I no longer felt any sickness symptoms, and my body felt light.
When taking a nap one day, I saw through my third eye how Master Li (the founder) and four people were operating on my chest. Master looked exhausted, so I told the team to take a break. Master said, “No, your body is too complicated. I have to finish what I'm doing no matter how tired I am."
After the operation, I woke up. My back pain, palpitations, and every discomfort I had suffered from were gone, as were the black spots on my face.
Taken to Brainwashing Center More Than 20 Times
Since the onset of the persecution of Falun Gong, my husband and I have twice gone to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong. We were arrested and detained for 15 days both times. All in all, we’ve been taken to a brainwashing center more than 20 times.
We put up “Falun Dafa is Good” banners and stickers in our local area during the Chinese New Year in 2001. A few days later, we hung banners with the words “Falun Dafa is Good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is Good,” throughout our township.
When I was visiting my parents, the local authorities arrested my husband and took him to a provincial brainwashing center. I asked other practitioners to take care of my 14-year-old son, as I was trying to rescue my husband.
After I explained the purpose of my visit to the staff of the brainwashing center, they not only refused to let me see my husband but also detained me there for a month.
My husband was viciously beaten, so I said to the director that I would take whoever beat my husband to court. They then took him for X-rays and claimed that they had punished the person who beat my husband.
The police department sentenced my husband and I to three years of forced labor after one month in the brainwashing center and then transferred us to the labor camp. While in the labor camp I talked to guards about Falun Gong and they were sympathetic to my situation.
Practitioner's Energy Breaks Machine
Five days before the end of the third month in the camp, two guards took me to a car and said that I would be taken to have a checkup, and if I was healthy, I would remain in the camp; however, if I was sick, I would go home.
An exam in the hospital showed heart problems, and it diagnosed me with high blood pressure. Then the doctor had me wear a device and told me to jump, run, and climb stairs with it but I did not do as I was told.
The guards then took the device to the hospital to get a reading, but it broke the new reading machine. The hospital had to call the manufacturer for maintenance to have the machine fixed. On the third day, they had me wear the device again, but I refused to do as I was told. On the fourth day, the hospital's reading machine broke again.
When the doctor called the manufacturer for advice, he told them that a Falun Gong practitioner was wearing it. The manufacturer said, “Her electric current is greater than the maximum amount the machine can take.”
The doctor refused to keep me in the hospital, although the chief physician wanted to keep me for experiments. I told him, “Am I an animal? Why on earth do you want to experiment on me? You would be committing a crime.”
My release paperwork was done immediately. The 610 Office was called to pick me up. But I negated that arrangement and had my relative pick me up.
Distributing Falun Gong Informational Materials
Because the authorities where I worked constantly colluded with the 610 Office, I was forced to leave home to avoid persecution.
I sought shelter in a relative's home and became involved in the distribution of Dafa truth-clarification materials. I helped practitioners establish a material production site.
While still on the run in 2003, my hometown practitioners asked me to come home to make truth-clarification materials with them. They had purchased copiers and printers and put them in my home.
I also realized that being homeless was not right and that I should resist the persecution by going home.
With the help of practitioners, I wrote a letter about the persecution that my family had suffered, including my father's death, and distributed many copies in our area, which had a very positive effect on the police and authorities there.
I returned home and reclaimed my computer from the police department. I bought a DVD burner and started making truth-clarification materials at home. We supplied a large area with our materials. This slowly improved our cultivation environment.
When my husband was released and returned home, we distributed materials to every door on every street, which had more positive effects.
We were computer illiterate, and no tech-savvy practitioners were available. Through wisdom given to us from Falun Gong and computer instructions, we were able to make materials in large quantities.
After the publication of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, practitioners shared understandings and decided to help people to quit the Party and its youth organizations.
We first went to the many construction sites in our area. We made sure to talk to the managers first. After they quit the Party, they allowed us to tell the situation to their construction workers, as well as any new worker who came aboard.
There were people who refused to listen, threatened to report us, swore at us, or hit us. Yet we always handled these situations with a smile and looked inside to improve ourselves. Once we resolved the problems, these people no longer obstructed our efforts but also decided to quit the Chinese Communist Party.
