(Minghui.org) I was born when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) took power, living through the suffering and chaos of the Great Cultural Revolution. Besides having to work to make ends meet, I had to care for my young children, manage the household affairs, and also provide financial assistance for my parents. Because of the excessive physical and mental burden, my health began to deteriorate. At one point, I suffered from nephritis, gastric ulcer, cervical disk degeneration, hypoglycemia, and numerous other illnesses. I was unable to stand for even a few minutes without fainting.

I came to know of Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) in October 1994, at age 45. A fellow colleague loaned me a copy of the book Falun Gong. That same night, I finished reading the book from cover to cover. Though I could not fully understand the concept of cultivation, I was incredibly impressed by its contents. I learned that my suffering was caused by my own karma, while the pursuit of fame, fortune and social status would only bring harm. I was so impressed that I resolved to practice Falun Gong!

After cultivating for ten days, the butterfly rash on my face disappeared and my skin became smooth and rosy. Within two weeks, the rest of my illnesses vanished as well. Even my post-concussion symptoms, caused by a car accident 20 years ago, disappeared without a trace. Before, I was so weak I could barely climb the stairs. After cultivating Falun Dafa, I was, to my amazement, able to carry a fifty kilogram sack of rice to the fourth floor with ease!

After more than a month of cultivating in Dafa, I suddenly came down with a high fever. However, its symptoms were very unique. Though I experienced discomfort at home, my symptoms would disappear while I was at work. Moreover my fever only persisted for two days. Before cultivating Falun Dafa, I frequently fell ill from colds and fever. Despite aggressive treatments, including infusions, injections and Chinese herbs, my illness would drag on for two weeks or more. Now, such illnesses are a thing of the past.

Over the course of cultivation practice, I experienced some of the phenomena Master describes in his lectures. While asleep one night, I suddenly saw a large, bright eye looking at me intently. Also, due to my attachment to eating meat, I experienced all the effects Master described in his teachings regarding this. After a year of repeated reactions, I was finally able to relinquish the attachment. Another example is that one day I discovered the upper half of my vision blocked. This phenomenon lasted three days, after which my eyesight returned to normal. After reading Master’s teachings, I realized that this transient effect was due to movement from certain cultivation mechanisms.

In 2004, I was illegally detained in a forced labor camp where four police officers tortured me in an attempt to force me to give up cultivation. They applied electrical shocks to my face, neck, ears, back, hands, legs and feet. As a result, I developed many large blisters, especially on my face and neck. As I had Master’s help, I felt no pain and my ruptured blisters remained uninfected. Within a week, the blisters crusted over and the skin fully recovered after just two weeks.

On the evening of August 5, 2017, I experienced a sudden, severe itch on my left arm. Four small white welts appeared afterwards, and I experienced intense itching on my arm, along with a high fever. Perhaps I had been bitten by a poisonous insect. I suffered an uncontrollably high fever over the following two days and three nights. On the third night, while semi-conscious, I silently begged, “Master, please save me! I can’t hold on any longer!” I repeated my plea till I fell asleep. The following morning, I discovered that my fever had miraculously disappeared.

Over the past 20 years of cultivation, Master has been constantly caring for me and purifying my body. From the depths of my heart, I am grateful for compassionate Master’s infinite warmth and boundless protection!
