An Elderly Woman Counts Her Blessings
(Minghui.org) I'm now 81 years old. After I began practicing Falun Dafa in May 1997 both my mind and body improved tremendously. My family and I have benefited so much and we are grateful to Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa.
I used to suffer chronic illnesses – cirrhosis, a herniated disk and rheumatoid arthritis, just to name a few. Hospitals and modern treatments did not help me. I eventually became bedridden.
After I started practicing Falun Dafa everything changed. I got up early every morning and did the exercises. After breakfast, I read the Fa for hours. A month later, all my illnesses were gone and I never had to go to the hospital again.
A few months later, shingles appeared on my abdomen. The pain was excruciating. My husband and children urged me to go to the hospital. I said, “Master will take care of me, I'll be alright.”
Two months later I was fully recovered. I knew Master endured and eliminated much karma for me.
One time at a public bathhouse, I suddenly felt like I was picked up from behind and dropped on the floor. I lost consciousness. I awoke to the sound of women loudly exclaiming that one of my wrist bones was sticking out.
Sitting up, I used my other hand to straighten my wrist. I stabilized it with a wooden brush, wrapped it in a towel and went home.
When I woke up the next day, my wrist did not hurt so I resumed my normal routine.
I reflected on my cultivation to see why this happened. Three days before I fell, my husband was drunk and yelled at me. I couldn't control my anger, and I shoved him. He fell next to the radiator and his head barely missed the sharp metal corner. The hand I used to push him was the hand that was injured.
I realized that I did not live up the standard of Forbearance, and I needed to improve. Two months later, my wrist was fine.
I am thankful to Master and Dafa from the bottom of my heart. When I clarify the truth to people, I often get teary-eyed when I talk about my amazing personal experiences.
No words can express my gratitude. I can only do the three things well.
I'd like to tell you how Falun Dafa blessed my family.
My Husband Benefits
My husband is 85 years old, but he is not a practitioner. When he went out for a walk five years ago he was struck by a car. He couldn't stand up so the driver who struck him took him to a nearby hospital.
My husband refused to allow the doctor to exam him and said he wanted to go home. After the driver and the car owner brought my husband home they urged him to go to a hospital. One man lifted my husband’s pant leg and pointed out, “His right knee is swollen...he is 80 years old. Shouldn't he see a doctor?”
I asked them to help my husband into our apartment. I explained that I'm a Falun Dafa practitioner and I would take care of it.
When they tried to give us money I handed it back. After resting for 15 minutes, my husband was able to move his leg. The driver and the car owner said it was miraculous.
I used this opportunity to clarify the truth to them, and both of them quit the Chinese Communist Party-affiliated organizations they had joined.
They came back a few times to see how my husband was. On the fifth day, my husband could walk on his own. The driver was very happy and said that he wouldn't have believed it if he hadn't seen it in person.
While he recuperated, I had my husband read Zhuan Falun with me and repeat “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He soon fully recovered.
My oldest son is a college professor and remains in good health. He hasn’t spent any of his medical allowance. My younger son recently began practicing Falun Dafa.
