(Minghui.org) Below are the stories of several people around me who were blessed and protected after coming to understand the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution.

Husband Recovers from Bulging Disc

My husband had a serious back problem. When it flared up, he could not get out of bed, as the pain immobilized him. He was deceived by the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) propaganda and tried to stop me from practicing Falun Dafa. I never gave up on him and clarified the truth about Dafa and the persecution to him. He first was against Dafa but gradually accepted it and began to change his attitude.

One day, his bulging disc flared up again. He was in such pain that he could not get out of the bed. I told him, “Take it easy and just recite 'Falun Dafa is good', but you must sincerely believe it. Then, Master will help you.” He was skeptical but did as I asked. Just with that thought and reciting the phrase, his pain subsided! He was amazed and kept reciting the phrase. Once he got up from the bed, his pain was gone!

He also began reading Dafa books and completely changed his view. “Falun Dafa is great! I might not meet the standard of a cultivator, but I promise to become a better person,” he said.

He grew more honest as well. When doing business, he gave back money if someone overpaid him–it was sometimes hundreds or even thousands of yuan. He no longer suffers from a bulging disc and looks 10 years younger.

Neighbor and Family Benefit from Dafa

Lin is 10 years younger than me. Her husband is an army officer, and she is a stay-at-home mom. We used to live in the same subdivision, but we seldom ran into each other. One day, her son was crying because he was bullied by other kids at elementary school. After I consoled and comforted him, he calmed down.

The next day, Lin thanked me. I asked her why. She told me whenever her son was bullied, he would cry for a long time, which upset her as well. But, this time, he told her that he no longer hated these kids but instead felt pity for them.

She wanted to know if I had any secrets in how to raise a child. I told her that my knowledge came from one book. I took out Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, and said, “If you are interested, you can read this. You might learn how to rear your child in a different way. You might change, and your thoughts about how to handle conflict might change as well. Your life will be more positive and meaningful.” After reading Zhuan Falun, she began to practice Dafa!

She became happy, positive and upbeat. She came over almost every day and shared her understandings of what she had read. In following the teachings, she no longer gossiped, got rid of unhealthy habits, and became more selfless.

She had saved a lot of money without telling her husband. Once she realized that she must be truthful, she apologized to him. He was amazed at her change. She told him it was Falun Dafa that changed her.

She went to her hometown, as she wanted her family and relatives to understand Dafa. Lin's mother had heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and other illnesses. She had a short temper as a result. After her daughter talked to her about Dafa, she recited the phrase “Falun Dafa is good.” She shortly recovered from her illnesses and could start doing house chores. She is approaching 70 but walks with the vigor of a young woman. She no longer loses her temper and is always in an upbeat mood.

Lin's sister was able to see entities in other dimensions, which greatly disturbed her. She felt exhausted and had trouble sleeping. She was also depressed to the point of wanting to end it all. She felt hopeful after Lin had talked to her. Whenever the entities appeared, she would recite “Falun Dafa is good,” and they would disappear. She saw them shrinking until they no longer disturbed her.

Former Party Champion Learns the Facts

One day, I saw an older gentleman. I greeted him and we began chatting. I told him that I practiced Falun Dafa and wanted to tell him about it. He told me that he used to teach Communist Party history in school. He believed that Falun Dafa practitioners were instigated by overseas forces to go against the Party. He wanted to change my mind.

I sensed that he was a kind person who had been deceived by the Party’s propaganda. I asked Master to strengthen my righteous thoughts so I could help him. I said, “Since you studied the CCP history, you might also know that the Party has a habit of tampering with history. Its power is maintained by lies and violence. Whatever you learned from the media regarding Falun Dafa is a lie. We are a group of cultivators and are not involved in politics. Nobody can manipulate us. We follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, which are accepted worldwide. It is only persecuted by the CCP. The worst of it is that practitioners’ organs are harvested by the CCP for profit.”

He listened attentively. I suddenly noticed his face change–he was in pain. I asked, “Are you alright? Do you have any discomfort anywhere?” He replied that he had numerous illnesses, and some were chronic.

Looking at this tall and thin gentleman, I felt sorry and really wanted to help him. I told him, “It must be a predestined relationship. I saw you across the street and wanted to talk to you. I am sorry to see you suffering like this. If you trust me, I have ways to help you alleviate pain.”

I told him that Falun Dafa is a Buddha Fa and that as long as he had righteous thoughts toward Dafa and sincerely recited the phrase “Falun Dafa is good,” the founder of Dafa would help him. He stood there quietly for a few minutes, and suddenly his facial expression changed. I knew then that he had recited the phrase and that Master had helped him.

After I told him about Dafa and the persecution, he agreed to quit the Party. We waved good-bye. From a distance, I still saw him waving and his body radiating light.

Inmate Rewarded after Learning About Dafa in Detention Center

Another practitioner and I were reported to the police for talking to people about Dafa and the persecution. We were held in a detention center for 10 days.

We told many inmates about Dafa and the persecution. Many people agreed to quit the CCP and its youth organizations, including Ms. Wang, who was in her 60s.

Ms. Wang was held with another practitioner in another cell. Both were transferred to my cell. Most of the inmates in my cell had quit the Party.

The other practitioner told me that Ms. Wang had a deep misunderstanding of Falun Dafa and reminded me to be careful. I felt sorry for her and did not want to give up on her. I found a chance to chat with her about the persecution. She asked several questions. I answered them one by one, and she agreed to quit the CCP. I was so glad that I had not given up on her no matter how “stubborn” she seemed to be. Many practitioners had already paved the road well, and I only finished the task.

When she recited “Falun Dafa is good” repeatedly, she felt a warm current flow from head to toe. She was relaxed and comfortable. She asked me what was going on. I was happy for her and told her that the founder of Dafa was purifying her body since she had a sincere heart.

She had been taken to a detention center because her rental house caught on fire for an unknown reason. She maintained her innocence and felt depressed and hopeless. Since she started reciting “Falun Dafa is good” every day, however, she felt more hopeful for the future and not as depressed.

In the detention center, I never memorized the rules and regulations, wore the uniform, attended classes, or did anything else required of inmates. The guards were not happy, but since they could not change my mind, they left me alone.

Ms. Wang asked why the guards allowed me to do this while mistreating others for resisting. I said, “I am a Dafa practitioner. I did not commit any crimes and should not be here. They are persecuting good people, and I am trying to stop them from committing a sin by not cooperating with them. They all know that we are good people, so they choose to leave me alone.”

She stated that she also did not commit any crimes and stopped participating in required inmate activities. When a guard ordered people outside, everyone except Ms. Wang and I left the cell. The guard told her to hurry. Ms. Wang asked why I did not have to leave the cell. The guard said I was excused because I was a Falun Dafa practitioner. Wang said with firm conviction that she was also a practitioner. The guard smiled and said it was alright. I whispered to her, “Welcome!”

She told me a lot afterward, including how she now knew that the CCP had deceived her. She saw that we practitioners were good people and said she would practice Dafa after she was released.
