(Minghui.org) In my many years of practicing Falun Dafa, not only have I benefited tremendously, but so has my extended family, both in terms of their physical health and their mental wellbeing.
I have a sister-in-law who is 92 this year. Last spring, she suddenly became very ill and couldn’t eat. After two weeks under a doctor’s care, she still hadn’t improved much. Not hopeful that she would survive much longer due to her age, her children asked me to come see her for the last time. I live far away.
It pained my heart to see her sallow face and how thin she was. She cheered up when she saw me. I comforted her and urged her to recite the auspicious phrases “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” as many people have been cured by doing so. She knows that Dafa is great and kept saying them.
I visited her again a week later. She told me that she always felt happy and at ease to see me.
A few days later, her daughter called me and said that her condition had improved and she’s started to eat.
When I visited her this Chinese New Year, she had completely recovered. Her face glowed and she’d gained much weight. She held my hands and said, “I can eat anything now and my energy is back. I know Dafa saved my life! I will continue to recite, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!’”
One of my cousins was diagnosed with cancer last year and had an operation in August. When I went to see her after she was discharged from the hospital, she looked haggard and quickly became short of breath after saying just a few sentences. The incision caused her persistent and lasting pain.
I told her about Falun Dafa and that it would help her if she could sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She agreed to give it a try and she improved a week later.
When she returned to the hospital for another exam a month after that, the doctor said that, for most people, the pain usually lasts a year. But for my cousin, all of her discomfort disappeared in three months. She is in remission and has started to cook for all seven of her family members.
My husband’s younger sister is in her 70s. Last October, one of her sons had a heart attack. He had an operation and had a stent put in. Only a month after he returned home, he had another heart attack and died before they got him to the hospital. His death devastated my sister-in-law. Because she also had a heart condition, we all worried that the grief would take a toll on her own health.
I encouraged her to carry on. I also encouraged her to recite the Falun Dafa phrases to cheer her up and help her to stay positive. Having witnessed how other family members and I have benefitted from Dafa, she did. She soon calmed down and was no longer overwhelmed with sorrow.
