A Disabled Woman's Life Changed
(Minghui.org) After my son was born in the spring of 1997, my abdomen gave me a lot of pain. Since I was breastfeeding him, I tried not to take medications, but the pain was so bad that I did take some painkillers.
By July, my body was in bad shape and always leaned over to one side, and my weight had dropped to below 90 pounds. I went to the hospital for a check-up when my son was ten months old. I was then diagnosed with lumbar vertebrae tuberculosis, and I had to have an operation on my spine. While in the hospital for surgery, they found that I had tuberculosis in both of my kidneys and that my left kidney was totally dysfunctional and it had to be removed. In addition to that, I had a thoracic bone spur.
When I got home from the hospital, I was bedridden and couldn't take care of myself. One day, about a month after my surgery, I got into a heated argument with my husband. My mom was there at the time. My husband told my mom that he didn't want me anymore because I was disabled.
He went next door and borrowed the neighbor's car. He carried me out and put me in it and told my mom to take me home with her. My mom was so upset, she cried on the way home. I thought that I would never forgive him.
A New Life in Falun Gong
I was still living at my mom's house in March the next year when my brother-in-law came over to invite me to practice Falun Gong. He told me that it was a practice that belonged to the Buddha school.
“This practice is just so wonderful,” he said. “You don't have to do any of that stuff from other practices. Just follow what's said in the book Zhuan Falun, and you’ll be fine.”
Several days later, he brought the book over. As soon as I saw the color of the book, my eyes lit up, and I felt my heart became bright again!
Improving My Character
Ever since my surgery, I had kept thinking about divorcing my husband. But after reading Zhuan Falun, I came to realize that I should drop the idea. Five months later, my husband came to take me back home, so I went with him.
Once I returned home, I got in touch with the local Falun Gong practitioners. I joined their group Fa study. At first, my abdomen hurt so much that I could hardly sit. But three days after I started group Fa study and was doing the sitting meditation at home, I felt something of extreme density descend inside my body. It started in my neck and traveled downward. It split in two at my waist, moved down both of my legs, and finally came out the bottoms of my feet. After that, my body became very light. My abdomen never hurt from then on.
At that point, I started taking part in all the strenuous chores on our property. My neighbors in the village all witnessed how quickly I became healthy and capable after practicing Falun Gong. Another local villager had the same disease as me but it took him three years to recover, whereas I could work hard in the field within a few months after I started practicing Falun Gong.
My mother-in-law had always been mean to me. But I let go of my old grudge toward her and now there is harmony in our family. My husband is also happy and his whole family wholeheartedly supports me practicing Falun Gong.
My Son Benefited from Dafa
A coal burning stove was used to heat the room where my son worked. My son’s coworker poured some oil into the stove to heat it up quicker. My son wasn't aware of it. He opened the door and used a hook to loosen the burnt coal dust in the stove to improve the draft. Suddenly a big flame burst out of the stove door and instantly burned his whole face. The flame burned off some of his hair, and his eyebrows and lashes were gone.
After he rested for half an hour, he went to a pharmacy and bought some burn cream to apply to his face. When he came home, he asked me to turn on a fan to cool his face
My son's face was covered with blisters large and small. It was frightening to look at! I thought, “He just turned 20 years old. What if the burns leave scars on his face?” I then realized that Master Li (the founder of Falun Gong) would help, and I immediately felt much more composed.
I then remembered Master's words in Zhuan Falun: “You can read this book to a patient. If the patient can accept it, it can heal illness. But the results will differ according to each person’s amount of karma.”
I then asked, “Son, can I read Zhuan Falun to you?”
He was open to it, so I began to read. After a little while, he fell asleep, and when he woke up later in the evening, his pain had lessened, and he began to smile. He could hardly open his mouth, and his eyes were still swollen, yet his face overall had seemed to improve.
So we read Zhuan Falun together for half an hour every day.
On the fourth day, the skin on his face began to peel off. His new skin was clear and almost scar-free. Only one tiny scar was left because he had scratched at it. (Even that tiny scar has disappeared now.) When my relatives saw how fast his face had healed, they were amazed. They all believe that Falun Gong is truly good.
