(Minghui.org) I was born in 1965 and have retired from a state-owned enterprise. I suffered from many ailments until I started to practice Falun Dafa. Not only did I regained my health but I have also become strong, optimistic, and tolerant. Having practiced Falun Dafa for 21 years, I'd like to share my experiences thus far.
Right after my child was born, I was diagnosed with postpartum depression. My depression grew worse by the day, and I lived in pain and without hope. I had frequent meltdowns and was not able to control my emotions. Even worse, I later found out that I had rheumatoid arthritis, and my knees began to deform. Constant swelling made my knees stiff, and I eventually found it very difficult to walk.
My doctor told me frankly, “Don't even dream of a cure. It’s impossible. In fact, you should consider yourself lucky because others with the same condition can be paralyzed.”
I knew the doctor was right, but I was desperate.
Not only that, I hadn’t reached rock bottom yet. Next, I developed tracheitis. I had to take pills and go to the hospital every day for an IV infusion. I didn't get better until the doctor prescribed the most expensive medicine. The entire treatment lasted six months and the tracheitis was not completely cured.
My miseries ended in October 1998 when my brother told me he was practicing Falun Dafa. He’d tried many types of qigong before, but none could compare to Falun Dafa in improving health. I was very interested in it and wanted to learn more.
I joined a Fa study group with my brother and watched Master Li Hongzhi's video lectures. The first time I saw his picture, I felt like he looked so familiar. I learned that all illnesses, all difficulties, and all pain were actually the result of the karma we ourselves accumulate. To begin practicing cultivation, we should start by being a good person.
After we finished watching Master's lecture videos, I turned to reading Dafa books and decided to start practicing.
After I started to read the teachings, I experienced major physical changes. My deformed knees were gradually returning to normal and the pain faded. I knew it was Master purifying my body.
“The root cause of your illness has been removed, and what remains is only this bit of black qi that will come out on its own to let you suffer a little and bear a little hardship. It wouldn’t do for you to not bear even a little bit.”(Lecture Two, Zhuan Falun)
I was so fortunate that I had a great Master. I told my husband, “See, I took medicine for so many years but I didn't get better. Instead, my health was getting worse and worse. I only watched Master's lectures once and I’ve recovered so much!”
Indeed, as Master said, “Actually, such an opportunity does not come along in one thousand years or even ten thousand years.” (Lecture Three, Zhuan Falun).
An employee at my enterprise was diagnosed with late-stage liver cancer. His doctor told his family to take him home and prepare for the end.
After he was discharged from the hospital, instead of waiting for death, he started to practice Falun Dafa. Amazingly, he was cured without any medical intervention.
Many people where we worked were in awe at our recoveries.
I live by Dafa's principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance. I am healthy and my family life is happy. Almost everyone who knows me knows that Falun Dafa is wonderful.
Countless practitioners around the world have benefited from practicing Falun Dafa, not only physically but also mentally. More and more people believe Falun Dafa is good and are blessed by it.
When my grandma was 91, she started to lose energy quickly. My aunt told me that my grandma only had a few days left, so I rushed back to my grandma's home. When I passed by the small garden in her residence area, I saw her sitting on a bench, and she did look very fragile.
I was very sad. “Grandma,” I said, “here is a Dafa keepsake. Do you see the words ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good?’ If you recite them sincerely every day, you might get better.”
Grandma replied, “OK, I believe Falun Dafa is good, I knew the media was framing it. I will recite these phrases every day.”
I went back to see my grandma about five days later. To my surprise, she looked very perky. When she saw me, she said, “No wonder you never gave up practicing Falun Dafa, it is indeed very, very good. Your Master is great!”
She proceeded to tell me she’d had insomnia for over 12 years and no medicine was helpful. But after reciting the phrase, she was able to fall asleep and slept very well. She was very excited and went out of her way to express her appreciation for Falun Dafa.
I hadn't seen my grandma for some time when I met her at my aunt's home. She told me, “I fell several times, and even rolled down the stairs a couple of times, but I wasn't hurt at all. So amazing. I thought Master Li was protecting me.”
I replied, “No doubt about it! You are over 90, and even a young man who fell down the stairs would be injured! You are definitely blessed!”
On my way to work, there was a street stall selling fried food. The owner knew Falun Dafa was good and she’d also quit the Chinese Communist Party and its organizations. She often recited, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
One day in the summer, when there were no customers, she was bored and threw a big chestnut into a pot of hot oil. The chestnut exploded and hot oil flew all over the place. She was scared because lots of oil splashed onto her clothes and bare arms. Surprisingly, she didn't feel any pain.
Afterward, she ran to tell me what had happened. I looked her over and didn’t see any burn marks. It was amazing. We thought, “Without Master's protection, that would have been impossible.”
