Cultivating Falun Dafa Gave Me a Healthy Body
(Minghui.org) My name is Yu’er. When I was 10 months old, I had tonsillitis for more than 10 days. One morning, while my mother was dressing me, I fell onto my bed and appeared quite ill. I was brought to a private clinic for evaluation.
My illness worsened after five to six days. The lower half of my body became paralyzed and I was unable to eat. My mother decided to take me to a local hospital. I was still able to hold a cracker and eat it during my first day of hospitalization, however on the second day, my hands were paralyzed. My mother was very worried and asked the doctor what was wrong with me. The doctor said he did not know what was happening either. After several days at the local hospital, my tiny fists were held very tightly in a ball and I was crying hysterically. My body and mouth were twitching constantly, even my facial features looked deformed. My mother was extremely anxious and requested that I be transferred to another hospital.
I was then transferred to the Fourth Military Medical University, currently known as the Air Force Medical University in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province. I was there for two weeks but still showed no signs of recovery. One day, my mother asked the doctor about my illness, the doctor said, “To tell you the truth, your child’s life is in danger. You should go home and have a second child. Even if you spend all of your money, this child will be mentally disabled her whole life and you will be stressed your whole life.” My mother had no choice but to bring me home.
After returning home my mother, who is a Falun Dafa practitioner, played the audio lectures by Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa cultivation practice. She played Master’s lectures for me to listen to every day while I was in bed. My mother knew Master once said:
“...with one person practicing, the whole family benefits?” (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia)
My mother carried me in her arms until I began to walk at around three or four years old. When I was little, I had bone marrow aspirations twice, so my spine was really weak. Hence when I learned how to walk, I would frequently fall over, unlike a healthy child. My mother also needed to assist me when I was walking, if not I would fall on my head. When I was able to stand by myself at around five to six years old, my mother taught me to practice the Falun Dafa exercises.
I am now 20 years old and under Master’s protection I have grown to be a healthy, happy and cheerful college student. The mental disability predicted by the doctor does not exist! I am able to help my mother with daily household chores like cooking and washing the dishes.
Though I am not diligent in my Falun Dafa cultivation, Master has always blessed me. Master has never once given up on me and was constantly protecting me.
Overcoming a Tribulation with Righteous Thoughts
One day after school when I was in fourth grade, I was hit on my knees by a bicycle because I was not paying attention when crossing the road. I fell down and a security guard helped me up and asked if I was okay. At that moment, I thought about what Master said:
“We have said that good or evil comes from a person’s spontaneous thought, and the thought at that moment can bring about different consequences.” (Lecture Four, Zhuan Falun)
I told him that I was fine. When I got home later in the evening, my legs were swollen and very painful. I knew that because I am a cultivator, everything would be fine. In a few days, my legs were no longer swollen and I knew that Master was protecting me.
One time, I had a fever and was coughing and vomiting for several days. I looked very thin because I was not able to eat properly. My aunt was worried and asked if I wanted any medication. I shook my head and said no. I had strong righteous thoughts and since my aunt was also a Dafa cultivator, she did not say anything else. I know Master was protecting me and that I would be fine. Several days later, my aunt came again and wanted to take me outside for a while to get some fresh air. While outside, we bought a drink, and then we got home. I recovered without taking any medication. My aunt jokingly said: “It seems like you were just waiting for that drink to get better.” I knew once again Master was protecting me. Thank you Master!
Clarifying the Truth to My Classmates
I had a really close friend at school and I clarified the truth to her, telling her about the persecution and how the Chinese Communist Party persecuted Falun Dafa. I also told her that to become good people Falun Dafa practitioners follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I also gave her Falun Dafa information materials and told her about divinely inspired culture and tales. She accepted everything willingly.
In middle school, there was a girl who always bullied me. I followed the standards of a Dafa practitioner and was always very considerate of her. Later on, we became best friends and it was also an opportunity for me to clarify the truth to her. She said: “Thank you for telling me all these wonderful, wonderful things.” During the process of sharing information about Dafa, I could truly feel people awakening to the truth.
In secondary vocational school, I was the assistant monitor. My classmates were very mischievous and not well-behaved. I knew many had a predestined relationship with me so I followed Dafa’s standards and treated them with compassion. I would patiently reason with them and bring out their compassionate thoughts. During these two years of being an assistant monitor, there weren’t any fights or rule breakers. My teacher said: “I do not have to worry because you are here.”
I also had a very good male classmate. During winter break, he invited me to go to the movies. I thought of using this opportunity to clarify the truth to him. Initially, my mother did not want me to go and I could understand why. However, I told my mother that I needed to take this opportunity to clarify the truth to my classmate. At the movies, I told him about how Falun Dafa has spread worldwide and he was willing to accept what I told him.
I also clarified the truth to my physical education teacher while she was recovering from major surgery. I told her about Falun Dafa, and how the practice teaches people to abide by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to become good people. I told my teacher to sincerely recite: “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” She happily agreed.
There was also this female classmate of mine who had a good temperament and her family was pretty well to do. However, her physical body was very unhealthy. She was diagnosed with several different sicknesses. Once when she had a headache, I told her to sincerely recite: “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I also clarified the truth to her and she accepted it. It seems as if people are waiting to be saved and Master has already arranged our paths.
I am so grateful to Dafa and Master Li Hongzhi. I will listen to Master and continue to help Master in Fa-rectification!
