My Husband Changed When My Cultivation Improved
(Minghui.org) I’m 52 years old and have been practicing Falun Dafa for 22 years. Although my cultivation path has been bumpy, I have never given up faith in Master Li (the founder of the practice) and Falun Dafa.
Diseases Cured and Hearing Recovered
I developed an incurable disease that caused my body to not make blood cells and platelets normally in the early 1990s. I also had severe rhinitis and gastroenteritis. A Chinese medical doctor said there was nothing that he could do for my condition. I felt hopeless.
I then heard about Falun Dafa's miraculous health benefits and made up my mind to practice it. I studied the Fa, did the Falun Dafa exercises, and followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in my daily life. Less than a month later, I was completely cured of all my disorders. I was energetic and healthy again!
When I was five years old, I was playing with a hairdresser's ear pick out of curiosity. An adult then yelled and startled me, and I accidentally ruptured my eardrum with the pick. Since then, I could not hear in my right ear. Within a year of practicing Dafa, I recovered my hearing.
Husband's Temper Changes
My husband used to have a bad temper. Whenever he was unhappy, he would gamble, have affairs, and verbally abuse or kick me. He would beat me more if I tried to persuade him to stop. I hated him and no longer wanted to live with him.
After I began practicing Falun Dafa, I became more tolerant, compassionate, and stopped arguing with him. Although he had many shortcomings, he still had some good points.
Master Li said,
“And what does that look like, in practice? For starters, a practitioner should be able to hold back from retaliating, and patiently endure. Anyone who succumbs to retaliating could hardly be called a practitioner. ” (The Ninth Talk, Zhuan Falun)
Three years ago, he brought his mistress home. When I was telling him to not do it again, he hit me with a stick. I used my right forearm to protect myself and the stick broke. He grabbed another stick to hit me, but I protected myself with my other arm. I didn't say anything or fight back. Both of my arms were injured, but I still continued to study the Fa and do the exercises. Ten days later, my arms were healed.
During the Chinese New Year, my husband brought some friends home to play poker. I told him I had invited my side of the family to have lunch with us and asked him to help me.
His friends then left. While I was busy preparing food, he kicked me in the center of my back. I tolerated the pain and stayed quiet. My first thought was, I was too busy preparing for lunch and didn't greet his friends. I was at fault. My back recovered eight days later.
When I encountered these situations, I looked within and continued to care for him. He has gradually changed, and has become more good-tempered and polite. He no longer verbally abuses me, gambles, or visits prostitutes. He became a righteous man and now helps around the house.
“Similarly, your field could have the power to alter any improper thoughts that might be going through the mind of someone immoral who is in your presence. Or it might cause someone who was about to use foul language to change his or her mind suddenly and not do so. But this is only possible with the field of energy that comes from doing true spiritual practice. You should now be able to understand a religious saying that goes, 'Bathed in divine light, conduct and thought become right.'” (The Third Talk, Zhuan Falun)
My Son Spreads the Goodness of Dafa
When my son was in second grade, his teacher called to say that he had a fever and asked me to pick him up right away. I brought him to see a doctor who diagnosed him with the mumps.
On our way home, I told my son to recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
When we arrived, he said, “Mom, I am fine now. I don't have a fever anymore, so there's no need for medicine.” I replied, “That is good. If you are fine, there is no need for medicine. It is Master who got rid of your illness.” My son then thanked Master.
I usually teach him to be kind, to get along with his teachers and classmates, and to be a good student. One time, I heard him say to his little cousin, “You catch colds easily. You may want to recite, ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good'. Each time when I recite this, my cold goes away.”
