(Minghui.org) I became a Falun Dafa practitioner in 2000. At the beginning of my cultivation, I merely practiced by imitating fellow practitioners. As a result, I did not truly improve my character (xinxing), so I stumbled through many difficulties in life. Gradually, I learned to follow Master Li Hongzhi's (the founder of Falun Dafa) teachings to look within, which is a magical tool for improvement. So I naturally began to handle life's obstacles well. 

As I improved, my family members also received benefits. Here are a few of their stories below:

Overcoming a Feud with my Father-in-Law

My father-in-law and I did not get along for a long period of time. I was new to the family after marrying my husband, and it was inevitable they would be wary of me. 

My father-in-law used to help us raise sheep. He felt it was unfair to herd the sheep for free, however, so he always wanted to get paid in return. 

One day, I found one sheep was missing, and I thought that it ran to my father-in-law’s flock. But when I drove the sheep to the pen that night, the missing sheep did not return. 

Someone told me: “Your father-in-law sold the sheep.” I immediately felt unbalanced: “Why didn’t he tell me? Why didn’t he give me the money after selling the sheep?”

I was consumed by my attachment to fighting for profit and felt very agitated. The more I thought about it, the angrier I became! I could not let go of the incident, so I finally went to the village leader (cadre) for justice. 

The grudge between my father-in-law and me got deeper and deeper over time, so he stopped herding our sheep. I then raised the sheep myself and eventually sold them all in a few years. 

I would often ignore my father-in-law when I ran into him herding sheep for other relatives. One day, near the Chinese New Year, my father-in-law became very ill and could no longer eat. 

I heard that he also could not urinate due to kidney failure. Injections did not help, and the medicine made him vomit; his body was swollen all over. 

Despite that I had not talked to him for years, I was concerned for his health. On New Year’s Day, I asked myself: “Are you Master Li's disciple? If you are, you should listen to Master and go see your father-in-law!” 

I finally took an MP3 player with the recordings of Master’s lectures and visited my father-in-law. If I didn’t practice Falun Dafa, I wouldn't have been able to let go of all the grievances in my heart.

When I walked into his home, everyone was surprised. Even the family members from my side did not expect me to come! 

Lying in bed, my father-in-law could not talk, but he opened his eyes briefly to look at me as if trying to greet me. I felt very upset seeing him in critical condition. 

Without saying anything, I went up to him and put the MP3 earphones in his ears so he could listen to Master’s teachings. The more he listened, the more strength he gained back. 

The swelling in his face and feet also disappeared little by little. After a while, he sat up, leaned against the wall, and told me, “I smell a fragrance of flowers, not a normal fragrance, but a fragrance unavailable in the human world.” I knew that Master helped him! 

My father-in-law had also lost the ability to have a bowel movement so his abdomen was as big as a pregnant woman’s belly. Before I came, many relatives thought that he would pass away in a few days, so they began to prepare for the funeral. 

They could not believe seeing him drink three bowls of porridge that night without vomiting afterward. Everyone was surprised he could eat again.

I then took my father-in-law to my house, which was very close by, so I could continue to help him. He walked very slowly with my support. 

Along the way, three people saw him so weak and commented that he had little chance to survive and work in the field again. After arriving at my house, my father-in-law could practice the energy exercises conveniently because my home was a Dafa practice site at that time. 

It was extremely difficult for him to do the exercises under his poor condition. Nevertheless, he endured hardship and persisted in practicing for 20 days with his health improving greatly. He began to eat and have bowel movements regularly. My father-in-law returned home like a new person! 

Many months later, he told me that he and his wife had similar dreams one night. In his dream, he felt that a big hand slapped him. In his wife's dream, she saw a big hand holding a piece of flesh and sticking it onto his waist. Since then, my father-in-law’s kidney illness has been healed. 

I knew it was Master who replaced the kidney for him. My father-in-law is over 80 years old now, and he enjoys good health and can do work as well; Master has extended his life! 

My father-in-law’s experience is one of the many stories of Falun Dafa blessing all sentient beings!

My Mother-in-Law's Miraculous Recovery

My mother-in-law is hunchbacked. She became very ill last year and would vomit after eating. Her condition became critical in a short period of time. I was concerned about her health, so I wanted to help her by taking care of her at my home. 

She was not clear-headed at that time, but I was able to take her to my house in a motor vehicle. After getting out of the car, she became motionless and failed to recognize me. I spoke loudly to help her regain her consciousness. 

She kept asking, “Who are you?” and mumbling, “Mom, Mom!” She was very confused and could not control herself. I then asked for Master’s blessing and sent forth righteous thoughts for her. After a while, she regained her senses.

She could not listen to the recordings of the Fa lectures due to her hearing problems, so I taught her the energy exercises instead. The movements were difficult for her because she could not stand. 

I asked her to sit on a stool to practice. After doing the exercises for a few days, she improved dramatically and started to walk again; she recovered fully in half a month!

My Sister-in-Law's Back Injury

My sister-in-law was suffering from a herniated lumbar intervertebral disc issue last year. She could not squat nor turn over her body, and she needed support from others to get around. 

My father and mother-in-law visited her and brought her Dafa books and exercise music. She began to study the Fa and practice the exercises, and within a short time, she no longer felt pain in her waist. Now she can go out and do heavy lifting work, including moving sandbags and cement.

Blessings for My Son and Daughter

My son and daughter recognize that Falun Dafa is good, and they often recite “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance is good!” Their righteous attitudes for Dafa helped them receive Master’s protection. 

I am grateful to Master and Dafa for blessing my family!
