My Family Members Benefit from Remembering “Falun Dafa Is Good”
(Minghui.org) I’m a Falun Dafa practitioner in Jiamusi. I would like to share some stories of how my family members had been helped by remembering and saying, “Falun Dafa is good!” My whole family has witnessed the power of Falun Dafa and Master Li Hongzhi’s great compassion. As Master said,
My 92-year-old mother-in-law is a kind woman and likes to help others, but she is stubborn and has trouble restraining herself. She said she was afraid at night and had to have someone with her. She has a drinking problem and when she drank too much, she would lay on the floor and refuse to get into bed. She often scratched the sofa, destroying the fabric. She had trouble staying still and had to keep moving around, complaining that something was disturbing her mind. I realized that she probably had spirit possession. My wife told me that her mother has been this way since she was young, but no one could help her.
My mother-in-law read the book Zhuan Falun once and learned the Falun Dafa exercises, but she stopped after a few days. After my father-in-law passed away, she moved into a nursing home and continued her old behaviors. I couldn’t persuade her to continue to cultivate, because her children didn’t believe in Dafa. However, every time I visited her, I asked her to remember to say, “Falun Dafa is good.” She couldn’t remember it by herself so I repeatedly said it with her. She fell several times and injured herself, so we hired a nurse to take care of her. She wouldn’t follow the doctor’s orders to rest in bed and insisted on getting up. Her injury wouldn’t allow her to walk or sit, but she constantly moved around and moaned in pain.
I finally got a chance to spend time alone with her on the nurse's days off. I asked her to repeat “Falun Dafa is good.” She agreed and began to say it regularly. Gradually, she quit drinking and smoking. Her abdominal injury got better, and her hair regained some of its color. Eventually, she was able to walk. Even better, she calmed down and found peace of mind. Falun Dafa brought her amazing changes!
One time, my mother-in-law suddenly couldn’t breathe smoothly or speak clearly. Several family members went to see her. As soon as I saw her, I said, “Let’s all say ‘Falun Dafa is good’ together!” I could tell from her lips that she was repeating the sentence with me. After repeating it twice, she was able to talk normally and didn’t need to go to the emergency room. She was well enough to go to the bathroom by herself.
My mom is eighty-nine. Even though she hasn’t received any formal education, she follows traditional values and believes in Buddhas. She is very compassionate and believes that good will be rewarded and the wicked punished. She learned how to do the Falun Dafa exercises, but she didn’t continue. After the persecution of Falun Dafa was launched in 1999, she still enjoyed watching the video recordings of Master Li’s (the founder) lectures. She told me, “What Master Li said is so great and so true!” She respects Master so much that she offers incense in front of Master’s portrait.
One day, a neighbor blamed Falun Dafa practitioners for posting messy fake medicine advertisements in our building hallway. My mom said, “How can you blame it on Falun Dafa?”
Mom used to be sickly and weak. After she watched Master’s videos and repeated “Falun Dafa is good” for some time, her health improved. Her hunched back became straight, and she could do some chores. Most of her gray hair became black. Her elderly friend asked her, “How do you stay so young?”
My mom had chest pains around the Chinese New Year in 2018. After having CT and X-ray examinations, her doctor told me that she had an 80% chance of having lung cancer. I didn’t tell my mom but kept reminding her to say, “Falun Dafa is good” every day. She said she would. When the biopsy results came out a few days later there were no cancerous cells. We were very happy.
All my brothers and sisters know that mom believes in Dafa, and they have no objection to her watching Master’s lectures. Mom and all three of my brothers have quit smoking and benefited from believing in Dafa.
One day when my father-in-law was in the hospital due to diabetes complications, he choked on food and couldn’t breathe or talk. By the time I arrived, more than ten people from my family were already in the hospital room. The doctors and nurses were busily working on him. My father-in-law looked terrible. I told him, “Hurry and say, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’” To our surprise, he managed to cry out these words loudly. After he loudly said these sentences a couple of times, he threw up a dark glob and was fine. The nurses removed their equipment. Everyone was amazed by the power of Falun Dafa!
