(Minghui.org) I used to suffer from many illnesses, including serious problems with my liver and heart. I had insufficient blood supply to my brain and fainted whenever I got angry. I also had a stomach ulcer, neurasthenia, a herniated disc, sciatica, and cervical spondylosis.

Sometimes my symptoms suddenly developed when we were having a meal. Adults called the doctor and the three children all cried. Everyone in the family was nervous all the time.

We spent our money on treating my illnesses. My youngest daughter once walked about 12 miles to see her sister and borrowed 50 cents for school in order to save money for me. Our poverty and my illnesses made me despair and I wanted to die. My temper worsened. No one dared to speak loudly so as not to aggravate me. The conflicts in our family were neverending.

When All Hope Was Lost, I Found Falun Dafa

Someone told me about Falun Dafa, shared her experiences, and told me about the power of Dafa just when I had lost all hope. I was eager to learn it after hearing what she said. I experienced the power of Dafa from the very beginning.

I saw Teacher’s photo when I opened Zhuan Falun and was stunned. I said, “This cannot be a mortal.” I began to learn to read day and night, as I had never gone to school and was illiterate. I slept very little. My bad temper soon improved, and I no longer got angry with anyone in my family. They all witnessed this and were delighted. They helped me learn to read. Fellow practitioners taught me the five exercises in 1997.

All the illnesses that had bothered me for 18 years disappeared within a month. I became a healthy person. I was so happy that I was like a child. I never dreamed that I could learn such a wonderful qigong practice. I did not expect Falun Gong to be so great and supernormal—I literally got my life back. I could do the household chores, as well as work in the fields. I could visit neighbors and friends. Many of them began to practice Dafa after they witnessed my recovery. Soon we set up a practice site at my home.

From studying the Fa teachings, I learned many principles that solved things that had puzzled me. I understood the reasons for my past tribulations.

Teacher said:

“The ailments and miseries that people experience result from their karma, and karma is the product of past wrongdoings. So the ordeals that people face are how they pay for their karma.” (The First Talk, Zhuan Falun)

“Not even considering about past lives,” I thought, “just in this lifetime I have not been truthful, and I judged right and wrong based on communist indoctrination. Intentionally or unintentionally, I have done so many bad things. How could I not have illnesses or tribulations? How many bad things was I going to do if I had not cultivated Dafa? That would have been truly tragic.”

When Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), began to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, I became a target locally. Aside from many illegal arrests and detentions, I was sentenced to four years in prison. I was taken to a forced labor camp three times. No matter how bad the situation and how much pain I suffered, my steadfast heart of cultivating in Dafa never wavered. I cherished Dafa, which gave me a new life. I would never succumb to any outside pressure. I would not give up my conscience and defame Dafa. I made it a point to be a good person at all times.

Entire Family Immersed in Dafa

No matter how bad the persecution was, my family always supported Dafa. They also were protected by Dafa and rewarded with good fortune.

My eldest daughter was nearsighted. She had nine accidents in the past, but nothing serious happened. People all thought she was lucky, but my family knew that it was Teacher who protected her. My son-in-law once had cervical spondylosis and other ailments. He recovered without medical intervention.

My niece was not particularly smart. She graduated from medical school and got a very good job. My youngest daughter was infertile but got pregnant and gave birth to a son after she recited sincerely “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and supported Dafa.

My entire family respects Teacher. We thank Teacher before we eat. It has become routine in our household. We have all, under our given names, filed criminal complaints against Jiang Zemin with the Chinese Supreme People’s Court and the Chinese Supreme People’s Procuratorate.

No one in our family has taken any medication during the past 18 years. I have not been given any injections or taken medicine during the past 21 years. We are all healthy and happy. This is all given to us by Teacher. We all are deeply indebted to him.
