How My Family Benefited from Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1999. I am now 70 years old. I have benefited both physically and mentally from this wonderful practice. Furthermore, my husband and seven other family members are also practicing Falun Dafa.
I’d like to share some of our experiences, in witness of Falun Dafa’s magnificence and boundless grace.
How My Husband Became a Falun Dafa Practitioner
Before I began practicing Falun Dafa, I was a very self-centered person. Everyone in my family had to follow my orders, and I wouldn’t let anyone take advantage of me. As a result, I often quarreled with my husband over trivial matters.
Sometimes, my husband couldn't bear our fights and he would hit me. I once ended up with a black eye and a laceration on my face.
However, things completely changed after I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1999. A few months later, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the persecution against Falun Dafa. My husband knew how brutal the CCP is and was very scared that our whole family would be implicated because of my practicing Dafa. Thus, he was strongly against my continuing to practice.
One time when I went to my uncle's home to drop off some Falun Dafa materials, my husband was so angry that he yelled at me. I was angry too.
But suddenly I remembered what Master said,
“...for example, maybe you’re around ordinary people and somebody insults you, but you don’t say anything back and you’re totally calm inside, or maybe somebody punches you, and again you don’t say a thing and you just shrug it off, and you get through it. Then that shows that your character is high. You’re a practitioner, so what should you get? Don’t you get gong?” (The First Talk, Zhuan Falun, 2003 Version)
I tried to calm down and didn’t fight back. Similar confrontations happened a few more times. After seeing that I no longer fought with him, my husband also changed and stopped verbally abusing and beating me. Gradually, he was no longer against my practicing Falun Dafa.
To better tell people about Falun Dafa and the persecution, I began to print truth-clarifying materials and provide them to other practitioners for them to give out.
At the beginning, my husband was worried about our getting into trouble because of producing these materials. However, after he occasionally read the materials I produced, he was curious to know more about Falun Dafa. He asked me to teach him the five sets of exercises. A few days later, his third eye was opened and made him more determined to learn Falun Dafa.
Starting from October 2019, he began to practice the exercises with me every morning. He even joined me in exposing how the CCP deceives people and how it brutally persecutes Falun Dafa practitioners. He is now a practitioner, too.
How My Son Benefited from Falun Dafa
My son is a policeman. He witnessed my changes after I practiced Falun Dafa and he sincerely believes that Falun Dafa is good. Several times when the city planned to arrest Falun Dafa practitioners, he informed me in advance so local practitioners were able to avoid the arrests.
I believe he was blessed for his support of Dafa.
Once, he drove to Beijing to visit his friend. It was a long drive and he was fatigued. His car swerved off the road and was about to hit a tree. It was too late to hit the brake. He closed his eyes and thought that his life was about to end. Suddenly, his car stopped in between two trees. It was incredible and he believed that it was Master who saved him.
My Brother-In-Law Recovered from Cancer
One of my brothers-in-law is almost 80 years old. He believed the CCP's propaganda and bore deep hatred against Falun Dafa. He often told me to stop practicing Falun Dafa over the phone and didn't allow me to visit him simply because I am a Falun Dafa practitioner.
Later he was diagnosed with two different cancers. He had a hole in his abdomen that wouldn’t heal no matter what medicine was applied. He visited hospitals all over the country. One hospital in Beijing simply refused to accept him and told him to go home.
He was desperate. At that time, I brought him recordings of Master's lectures and told him that Master might be the only one who could save him. He believed me and started to listen to the recordings. His situation was much better in 3 days. On the 11th day, the hole in his abdomen healed without any treatment.
Then he started to do the Falun Gong exercises. Gradually, he could go grocery shopping and do laundry himself. As his life went back to normal, he is very grateful to Master and often tells people how wonderful Falun Dafa is.
My Little Brother Started to Practice Falun Dafa
My little brother lives in a village and often goes to the city to work. In April this year, he was stopped by policemen because he didn't bring his ID with him. He was sent to a detention center where he was required to undergo a medical check. The ultrasound revealed a big shadow on his liver, which suggested that he might have liver cancer.
He was scared to death. However the detention center wouldn't send him to the hospital. He could do nothing. At that time, he suddenly remembered that I'd told him before that when he encountered difficulties, he might be able to overcome it by sincerely reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
He kept on reciting the phrase during the 15 days in the detention center. After he was released, he went to a hospital for a second opinion. This time, no shadow was found on his liver. He was healthy. After experiencing first-hand how amazing Falun Dafa is, he started to practice Dafa.
My Nephew's Story
My nephew has been married for years. He and his wife had prayed to have a child for many years but had no luck. The doctor said that it was impossible for his wife to get pregnant because both of her fallopian tubes were blocked.
However, two months after they started to recite the phrase “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” as I'd told them to, a miracle happened. His wife got pregnant. Their baby is now two years old.
