Blessed with a Healthy Baby
(Minghui.org) I was born in a small village to a large family. My health problems began when I started college. My first physical was a year after I got married. I was diagnosed with serious diffuse hyperthyroidism, caused by chronic mental anxiety. I was told there was no cure and was advised to stay calm and take medicine to prevent flare-ups. I was also told that, in the future, I would get diabetes and rheumatic heart disease.
Over the years, I developed more ailments, such as gastritis, ovarian cysts, and lobular hyperplasia. My immune system was so weak that I easily caught a cold and had to wear extra clothes, even in the summer.
I had many miscarriages. My husband and I tried for five years to have a baby but to no avail.
I was sick all the time and lost all hope. My small salary went to pay my medical bills and student loans and we weren’t able to save anything. My in-laws commented that we were the poorest family in the village. My husband was their only child, and I knew they longed for grandchildren. In desperation, I made a wish in my heart that I would do anything to become healthy. I knew it was just a dream.
A Turning Point
Little did I know that my dream would come true. Not only did I regain my health, but I also became healthier than ever. The changes started when I began to learn Falun Dafa.
It was difficult, at first, for me to believe in a spiritual practice. I’d studied Marxism, materialism, and dialectics in college, so I spurned any belief in divine beings. When a kind neighbor tried to introduce Falun Dafa to me for health and well-being in 1997, I scoffed at her.
In late 1998, I went to a neighbor’s house and saw a video of Teacher Li Hongzhi, Falun Dafa's founder, demonstrating the third exercise. Just watching it made me feel good, so I asked the neighbor if I could borrow her copy of Zhuan Falun.
I leafed through the book occasionally without following my neighbor’s suggestion to read it from beginning to end the first time.
When I went to return the book, I came across another neighbor who teased me for reading about an energy practice. I was embarrassed and worried about what people might think of me believing in superstition. But strangely, all of a sudden, I decided to read the book again – this time all the way through.
When I went back home, I started to read it conscientiously. I had two days to myself, so I spent most of my time reading. By the afternoon of the second day, I had already read more than 140 pages.
I had visited two well-known doctors to see about the painful lumps in my right breast. One doctor said that the lumps were lobular hyperplasia. As I read the Zhuan Falun, I suddenly felt a strange rotating sensation in my right breast and then a hot feeling enveloped my whole body. I stopped reading for 10 seconds to observe the sensations. I later learned that it was a Falun (law wheel) cleansing my body.
After the sensation disappeared, I touched my breast and was surprised that the painful lumps were gone. I had been going to the doctor's for more than six months to treat the lumps, and now, all of them just disappeared in 10 seconds! I was fully awake—it was not an illusion. My feelings were indescribable.
I did not believe in supernatural phenomena back then, but a miracle still happened. My prior mentality was challenged, and I could not come up with a practical explanation. I finally admitted to myself, “This is real, everything in this book is real. I will practice Falun Dafa!”
I continued to read Zhuan Falun and my body was further purified. Shortly after, I started to learn the five exercises and formally started to cultivate. Two months later, all my illnesses disappeared. My face turned rosy, my weight increased, and a smile returned to my face.
My family life was filled with joy. My husband and I were then blessed with a healthy and beautiful baby. The pregnancy went smoothly, despite my history of miscarriages. The doctor thought that I would need bed rest for nine months with medication to keep the baby safe. However, I knew that I had regained my health after practicing Falun Dafa. I continued to work until the baby was due.
One day, I walked six miles with my mother to visit my sister and then walked another twelve miles over the hill to my uncle’s house. My friends and family were surprised by my dramatic changes and thought my improved condition was a miracle.
Twenty years have passed since I began to practice Falun Dafa. My life completely changed, and I no longer spend money on medicine. My mind became clear, compassionate, and peaceful. I could now stay grounded in the complicated and confusing society. Moreover, I was blessed with a happy family.
My dream indeed came true and all because of Falun Dafa. I cannot imagine how my life might have ended up otherwise. I'm extremely grateful for Teacher Li's salvation!
