(Minghui.org) I am 70 years old and I have practiced Falun Dafa for several years. I’ve witnessed many miracles from Falun Dafa and had several moving experiences. I’d like to share two with you.

A Blessing in Disguise

My son has a friend, Ms. Xi. One day in 2014, my son told me she had scleroderma, a rare skin disease, and she was coming to our city for treatment. She arrived that night. My son did a search on the internet and said there is no effective treatment for the disease. He planned to take her to dinner that night. I knew her too, so I accompanied my son.

I was shocked when I saw Xi. I'd always known her as a pretty girl with fair skin. Now her face was reddish-black and swollen. When she spoke, her facial expression was stiff as if she was wearing a mask. I could barely recognize her.

I sat next to her at dinner and touched her hand. It was hard like steel. She said emotionally, “I was diagnosed with scleroderma, a kind of autoimmune disease, and have been going through treatments for six months. I’ve seen both Western and Chinese medicine doctors and have taken countless pills. Nothing has helped.”

When she learned that the foremost medical expert practiced in our city, she took a plane with her mother to see him. 

She was only in her 30s then and was planning to get married when she suddenly became ill. One can imagine what a blow it must have been for her and her family. Due to time constraints, I was only able to tell her briefly about Falun Dafa and the health benefits of the practice. I told her if she could sincerely repeat, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” it would surely help her condition. She went to see the doctor the next day and was given six months of medication. She returned home with her mother immediately afterward.

Six months later, she came back to get more medication. I noticed that her condition had gotten worse. She said, “Now I can’t bend my arms and I need help putting on or taking off my clothes.” She could not clench her fists. Her toes were swollen and discharged liquid. The joints in her body ached and she had difficulty walking. I asked her if she tried reciting the phrase. She said she had doubts about that. I understood. How could one who was educated from childhood that there is no God and taught to believe only in science be expected to believe that her illness could be cured by simply reciting a phrase?

I felt sorry for her. I patiently explained what Falun Dafa is and its health benefits. I invited her to my house to learn the exercises. She saw that I sincerely wanted to help her and agreed.

I first showed her various DVDs explaining about Dafa and the health benefits of the practice. She was moved. She said, “I’ve only realized how good Falun Dafa is after seeing these materials. The Chinese Communist Party is shameless, resorting to lies to find an excuse to persecute the practice. We have been deceived.”

I then played Master Li’s (the founder of Falun Dafa) exercise tape and taught her the movements. Although she had never done them before, she managed to do the exercises for one hour.

I noticed that she cried nonstop as she did the second exercise. I asked her about it afterward. She said she silently asked Master Li, “I want to practice cultivation. But I have so much karma, is it possible? Please help me, Master.” She saw Master’s law body appear in front of her eyes. She thought, “It’s true, Buddha does exist! Master knows everything in my thoughts!” She was very excited! Her atheist notions, indoctrinated by the CCP, were completely broken through. She could not stop weeping.

Xi stayed at my house for two weeks. Her mother called her many times urging her to return home. She even lied and claimed that her grandmother was seriously ill and insisted that she immediately return home. I felt that her mother was misled by the CCP’s lies and she was afraid that her daughter was duped.

When Xi went home, she no longer needed help getting dressed and she was able to walk normally. Her parents were overjoyed by her transformation. Her mother phoned me and said, “Thank you! Xi is getting better day by day. I was in doubt before but now I cannot help but believe that Falun Dafa is good.”

Xi told me she hand-copied Zhuan Falun (the principal teachings of Falun Dafa) once after returning home. She does the exercises and studies the Fa every day. She also reads articles by other practitioners on the Minghui website and has benefited tremendously. She learned how to look within. She said, “I often lost my temper with my parents previously and resented everyone around me. I blamed others for my illness. I don’t know what I would become if I didn’t practice Falun Dafa. Indeed, the scleroderma has been a blessing in disguise.”

Xi sent my son a video afterward. I saw that the black skin on her face was gone and she'd regained her past appearance. She told her classmates and friends about her recovery. Many people learned how extraordinary Dafa is. She said she will cultivate diligently and not disappoint Master.

I Can Run Now

My colleague has a daughter named Jing, who is in her early 40s. Her health has not been good and she often went to the hospital. She’s consulted Chinese and Western doctors, undergone acupuncture, massage and has even tried qigong to heal her illness. She is still single and her mother is her only close relative.

Jing developed another new ailment in 2020. Her body became swollen and when she walked, it was so painful she could only take small steps. She had a high fever every few days, and she said her lungs were damaged. She went to see Chinese and Western doctors. It eventually got so bad that Jing could not walk at all.

Her mother is getting on in age and her health is also failing. Other relatives and friends took Jing to see the doctor, pushing her in a wheelchair. After going to many hospitals, doctors concluded that she had connective tissue disease. According to Jing, this is an autoimmune disease and considered incurable. Patients can only rely on steroids for some relief, but the steroids cannot stop the disease from progressing to the organs. In the later stages of the disease, the digestive tract, lungs, heart, kidneys and other organs can fail. 

Jing was prescribed large amounts of steroids to sustain her life. She had to take 10 pills every day. Steroids are extremely damaging long term, and her body became swollen. Her face was swollen beyond recognition. Who knows how many times her mother wept in secret. The old woman herself had many health problems brought on by long periods of anxiety, and she frequently called me to bemoan her fate.

I never stopped telling both mother and daughter about Falun Dafa. I gave them many DVDs and other materials. I even showed them books on the teachings. But both of them said they only believed in science and medicine. The doctors could not save Jing, and they gave up all hope.

I asked Jing again to practice Falun Dafa. I told her about Xi who also suffered from an autoimmune disease, but recovered soon after practicing Dafa. Jing still had doubts. She asked me to give her Xi’s phone number and said she wanted to ask Xi herself.

Xi patiently told Jing about the changes she experienced after she began practicing. Although she was not totally convinced, Jing decided to give it a try. I gave her Zhuan Falun, Master’s recorded lectures, and an exercise tape. In this way, Jing began to practice Falun Dafa.

When Jing began to do the exercises, she was in so much pain she could not stand still. Yet she gritted her teeth and persisted. When the pain was unbearable, she took some pills then continued on with the exercises. She told me, “I yawn, have a runny nose and I’m covered in sweat every time I do the exercises.” I assured her it was a good thing and that Master was adjusting her body.

In a short time, Jing went through a great transformation. The swelling subsided and her body returned to normal. She said, “I never perspired when I was sick. Now, after the exercises, I feel that all my sweat pores are open and my body is relaxed.” Now Jing loves to do the exercises.

Her triglycerides were high in the past. Recently, she had a physical examination and was told that everything was normal. She told me delightedly, “Not only can I walk, now I can run! I can do any chores as well. The other day, I went to work the whole day. After work, I even cleaned my car.” This was impossible in the past.

I am truly happy for Jing. I told her to study the teachings of Falun Dafa more often and strive to improve her character. Jing spends a lot of time doing the exercises but does not read the teachings often. Yet, Master has begun to take care of her.

Falun Dafa is a virtuous Way that cultivates both mind and body. Dafa has created many medical miracles. Xi and Jing’s stories are just two examples.
