Practicing Falun Gong Let Me Say Goodbye to Insomnia
(Clearwisdom.net) When I came to the United States four years ago, I had difficulty adjusting to the new language and culture. I suffered from insomnia as a result of the added pressure from school and work. At its worst, I could only sleep four or five hours a week. On average, I got an hour of sleep per night. I became anxious every night when bed time came. I tried hard to sleep but could never fall asleep. This insomnia tormented me, and each day felt like a year. I went to many hospitals for treatment but to no avail. I took different sleeping pills and exercised more, but nothing worked. I almost lost the confidence to continue living.
My friends were concerned about me. They urged me to try Falun Gong. I had doubts at first, so I only did the exercises. My condition didn't improve after two weeks. Veteran practitioners cared a lot about me, telling me to sincerely cultivate. They told me to genuinely understand "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance," the characteristics of the universe. They urged me to read Zhuan Falun and other Dafa books more. So I watched the video recording of Master's lectures and read Dafa books online every day. In the morning I practiced the exercises at the practice site.
After six months of cultivation practice, I unreservedly said goodbye to insomnia. Now I sleep peacefully for about six hours every night. I stopped all the medications I was taking. Furthermore, my energy level and mood have all improved. I personally experienced "Falun Dafa is good," and am determined to continue with my cultivation.
