My Steadfast Faith in Dafa Renews My Body and Soul
(Minghui.org) I was introduced to Falun Dafa in December 1998, but it wasn't until May 1999 that I watched Master Li Hongzhi's lecture videos for the first time. I was shocked by the teachings and really wished that I had learned them sooner.
I have always been weak and often fell sick. I had some severe illnesses including stomach ulcers, bulbous ulcers, atrophic gastritis, duodenal ulcers, and eventually stomach bleeding. Some factor in my blood also caused raised bumps to form on my body if I was exposed to cold water or rain. I then suffered serious heart disease in my twenties. To make matters worse, I became allergic to all kinds of medicine when I was young.
Here are my experiences of eliminating sickness karma.
Stomach Diseases Eradicated Overnight
A month after reading the book Zhuan Falun, I was up late one night in July 1999 making clothing. At about ten o’clock, I drank some water and went to bed. Before I fell asleep, I had stomach pain, accompanied by churning sounds. The pain increased, and it felt like a knife was being twisted in my abdomen. I then became nauseous and spit up a dark substance stained with blood. My head felt like it was being split open!
I rushed to the bathroom and excreted some black bloody things. I spent most of the night vomiting and passing watery stools. I passed out at least twice. I didn't feel any pain at the time. I begged Master Li to help me survive. Then my consciousness became a little clearer, and I again had vomiting and diarrhea. I could only crawl on the floor, and it took me a long time to get back to bed. I told Master in my heart: “I know that you are eliminating karma for me, and I will endure it. It doesn’t matter.”
When it was almost dawn, my stomach felt better, and I fell asleep. When I awoke, I immediately dressed, washed my face, and prepared to go to the market. My husband hurried over and said, “After suffering all night, don’t go shopping today.”
“Why not? Do you think I look like I suffered all night?” He saw that I was full of energy and was impressed by the miraculous effects of Falun Dafa. He said that he would make me something to eat. I said there was no need, but I ate pancakes and chili sauce dip with sauerkraut hearts. I ate even more later and said half-jokingly that I was hungry because I worked so much overnight, like I had been dumping trash.
After breakfast, I rode my bicycle to the market with the clothes I had made. I was busy all day, and no one noticed anything different about me. When I got home in the evening, I did not think of going to bed early, even though I had almost no sleep. I went to bed after ten o’clock as usual and got up at three o’clock in the morning. It seemed like nothing unusual had happened.
Afterward, it felt like Master had replaced my gastrointestinal tract with a new one. That was 20 years ago, and my stomach has never ached even if I eat something raw, cold, or hard. By faithfully believing in Master and the Fa, my illness was healed overnight.
No More Bumps!
Whenever I was exposed to cold water or rain, I would develop bumps all over. My eyelids would also swell, which affected my vision, so I avoided going outdoors on cloudy or rainy days.
Before the persecution of Falun Dafa started in July 20, 1999, I occasionally went to study the Fa with fellow practitioners. One day, it rained heavily on my way home and I got wet all over. My whole body became swollen and looked scary.
I got back home with great difficulty. My child quickly helped me get in bed, covered me with a quilt, and tried to warm up my bed (Heat relieves the puffiness, and I was used to this treatment).
One day, as we were topdressing the cornfield, we ran out of fertilizer. My husband asked someone to tell my father-in-law to bring us some fertilizer. My father-in-law told me what was needed, so I poured out half a bag of fertilizer and took it to him. When I got to the cornfield, my clothes were soaked in dew. My husband became frightened and shouted: “Who asked you to come? Look, your clothes are all wet!”
I rolled up my sleeves to look at my skin, and, amazingly, there were no bumps. I raised my arms and proclaimed: “Look! I no longer have any swelling!”
My husband stood up from the four-wheeler and shouted ecstatically, “Long live Teacher Li!”
After I learned Dafa, not only did I become healthy, but also my temperament and personality changed a lot. In the past, others dared not criticize me because they were afraid that I would become angry and fall ill.
I also became gentle and considerate. I would think of others first, respect the elderly, and work hard for the family without complaint. I am happy every day. Whenever neighbors got into a quarrel, my mother-in-law would say: “Just go see my daughter-in-law and let her tell you about Falun Dafa. I promise you will get over it immediately!”
My husband also gave heartfelt remarks on the New Year: “I am the happiest man in the world. Today, I give respect to my parents and to heaven and earth and show my respect to the great Master Li Hongzhi. Master Li, you are so great!”
I deeply felt Master’s compassion for all beings. Illness is nothing to true practitioners. We have the omnipotent Dafa and Master and can handle any tribulation. I remember a passage of the Fa Master taught,
“A demon will never be higher than a Tao.” (Lecture Five, Zhuan Falun)
Heart Palpitations Immediately Disappear
In July 2018, I was working in a restaurant owned by someone from Sichuan province. The boss and I were the only employees. I followed Dafa's standard of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance strictly. The boss noticed and understood that practitioners are different from ordinary people. I took care of everything.
He often visited his child at his father-in-law’s house and left me alone to run the restaurant. I used these times to clarify the truth about the persecution to the customers.
I was alone one day when 20 people walked in. As I worked hard to serve those customers, I broke into a sweat as my upper body started convulsing. I was having an episode of heart palpitations. I knew these symptoms were trying to make trouble for me. I remained calm, looked inward, sent righteous thoughts, and asked Master not to let so many sentient beings see me go through this.
Some customers helped me when they saw that I was so busy and sweating. Suddenly, the phrase “Golden Monkey Splitting its Body (Jinhou Fenshen)” (The Great Way of Spiritual Perfection) came into my mind. I immediately understood Master’s hint. I remained composed while I was chatting with customers.
Some of the customers remarked I should hire someone to help as they thought I was the boss. Someone who knew me asked where my boss was. They admired my attitude and asked how I managed to not be upset.
“I practice Falun Dafa. My boss knows me very well and often leaves me alone. He feels assured because he has secretly observed me many times. If I forgot to charge a customer for a bottle of water, I would pay the two yuan myself. In the three years I have worked for him, I may have paid about two hundred yuan.”
One of the customers asked, “You are so good, did your boss accept that money from you?”
“The boss refused to take it, but I insisted to meet the requirements of Falun Dafa.”
At that moment, a customer suddenly stood up and shouted, “Falun Dafa is good!” Then everyone joined in, “Falun Dafa is good!”
I also raised my right hand and exclaimed, “Falun Dafa is good!” Afterward, my heart palpitations immediately vanished.
