How Fortunate I Am to Be a Falun Dafa Practitioner

Dec. 12, 2021 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Heilongjiang Province, China

(Minghui.org) I was 32 years old in 2012 and I was fortunate to begin practicing Falun Dafa that year. Within one month, all my illnesses were resolved and I became healthy. 

What troubled me most was chronic cholecystitis. I took injections and Chinese and Western medications, but nothing helped. I avoided eating eggs, as they caused me terrible pain. Every time I became pregnant I miscarried. After I began practicing Falun Dafa, I became pregnant. I also ate more than 200 eggs during my confinement period and I was fine. When my family saw the changes in me, they felt that Dafa was miraculous. I truly experienced how Dafa can make a person healthy and elevate their moral standards. 

Facial Paralysis Resolved in 14 Days

When I got up on February 16, 2018, my face felt strange. When I looked in a mirror, one side was bigger than the other and I couldn’t close my left eye. When I smiled, my mouth tilted to the right. I was shocked. I couldn’t chew when I ate breakfast. I used a straw to sip milk, but I couldn’t suck. Except for talking, my mouth was completely useless.

I was really stunned. I was only in my early 30s and my child was so young. What would people think when they saw me? I started crying. Then I remembered I was a practitioner and I began to look inward. I realized that I paid a lot of attention to my looks. I always put on makeup before going out, as I had a strong attachment to vanity. So I kept studying the Fa and doing the exercises. As my family were all practitioners, although they were worried about me, they also encouraged me a lot. 

After a few days, my appearance improved. This happened during Chinese New Year, and I usually attended a lot of parties. But this particular year I didn’t have any to attend, so I could focus on my cultivation instead of facing questions from my relatives and friends. As to my facial paralysis, I believed that with Master and Dafa here, I would be able to pass this test. When I didn’t smile it was hard to tell that my face was crooked. But I had trouble reading the Fa aloud, as I needed a lot of strength to pronounce every word correctly. But on the surface I looked fine. 

Fourteen days after my facial paralysis started, an old classmate invited me over for dinner. What to do? Should I go or not? I said to Master, “Master, you saved me from Hell.” When I began practicing, I dreamed that I'd already descended into Hell but Master saved me. I continued, “I don’t want to be beautiful, I just want a normal face so that I can go out to clarify the facts to people.” Perhaps because I had the wish to save people, I immediately felt much better. After I returned home, my face was back to normal. In 14 days, my condition was resolved without going through any treatment. 

When I told my relatives what happened, they all said that Dafa was truly miraculous. Afterwards, I heard that one of my relatives also had facial paralysis, and was diagnosed as having a stroke. He went all over the place to get treated, and only got better after having acupuncture treatments for a few months. 

Through this experience I eliminated my attachment to being beautiful, which in the past cost me a lot of time and money. I no longer applied cosmetics to my face and I felt very comfortable. 

Returning Money to My Old Company

In 2004, my former company sent me to Southern China to explore the market. As I was a very diligent worker, my boss trusted me. He placed me in charge of the market in a certain province. I met my husband there and we got married. He liked playing games on the Internet so I also started playing them. I was so preoccupied with video games that I slacked off at work. 

I applied for funding to explore new clients. There was 20,000 yuan that I didn’t use, so I pocketed it. When I became a practitioner, I debated with myself whether I should return the money or not. But since it had happened so long ago, I forgot about it after a while. 

This year I visited my parents during the Chinese New Year. When my parents were rearranging the furniture they found my old business cards from when I worked for that company. As soon as I saw the business cards, I realized I should return the money. 

We purchased a house and in order to pay the mortgage we had to be thrifty. When I checked my bank account, it showed that the balance was 23,000 yuan. When I talked to my husband about returning the money, he didn’t agree. However, since he was also a practitioner, he later said to me unhappily, “You should return that money, but you have to keep at least 5,000 yuan in your bank account to cover our daily expenses.” 

I thought about it for a couple of days. As I was a practitioner, I should return the money that I owed. I had another bank account. When I’d checked it earlier, I thought that I had a balance of a few thousand yuan. I also thought that if it was under 5,000 yuan, I’d just sell my jewelry to get some cash so that at the end of the day, I’d still be able to maintain 5,000 yuan in my other account. 

I made up my mind to do things according to Dafa’s standards. I looked up my old boss’s phone number and called him. When I told him that I wanted to return the money, he did not know what I was talking about. He told me that I didn’t have to worry about it. But I insisted on returning the money. He finally agreed, but wondered why it was more than the original amount. I said the extra was to cover the interest. I apologized for not returning the money immediately. 

I returned the money with interest to the company 15 years later. 

When I checked my bank balance the next day, I had 20,000 yuan more than I thought. I couldn’t believe my eyes! When I mentioned this to my husband he was amazed. 

My Home-Based Materials Production Site 

A few years ago I bought a printer so that our family could print truth-clarification journals, desk calendars and other materials. My daughter and I went to residential buildings to pass them out, or handed them out to people face-to-face. Sometimes, we also printed informational materials for fellow practitioners to distribute. In the beginning, we occasionally had issues with this printer. I did not realize that the key to resolving these issues was to cultivate my xinxing. After I understood this, the printer gradually had fewer issues.

My daughter always listened to the recordings of Master’s lectures. Now she is four years old and can recite many poems from Hong Yin. She can also read most of the words in Zhuan Falun. She has never needed to take any medications. Every time she feels physical discomfort, she says, “Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!” She also listens to the recordings of Master’s lectures and she feels fine. 

When my daughter was one year old, another practitioner and I took her with us to clarify the facts to people. No matter whether it’s in the freezing cold winter or under the scorching sun, or when the pandemic was most severe, we kept going out to clarify the facts to people face-to-face.

Master said, 

“Also, with those people that you run into by chance, who you run into in daily life, and the people you run into at work, you should all clarify the truth to them.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Atlanta Fa Conference,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. IV)

I don’t think too much when I talk to people—I only follow the natural course of things. When my cultivation state is good I talk to whoever I meet while I run errands. There are times when I had fear and wasn’t courageous enough to talk to people, and I felt regretful afterwards. My daughter has learned to look inward, and she also helps me by pointing out some of my attachments. 

In the process of writing this article, I truly feel that if I did not practice Falun Dafa, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am so fortunate to be able to become a Fa-rectification period Dafa disciple. Only by cultivating diligently and saving more sentient beings, can I not let down Master’s saving grace.
