(Minghui.org) I'm forever grateful for the blessings from Dafa and would like to share a few stories from my family.
When my son was six-months-old, he grew a purple lump underneath his armpit. We took him to the hospital for a checkup. Doctors said that he had a ruptured capillary and it was quite normal, so we didn't think much of it at the time.
Later, my son grew more purple lumps here and there, and one on his buttocks was as big as an egg.
We invited a doctor to our home to take a look. He said it was a boil and it could be cured with plasters. Plasters didn't work.
We got scared and took our son to a big hospital in Zhengzhou, where he had a blood test. Experts said he had blood dilution and could not be operated on. They treated him with traction, so severely that his legs became deformed. We sought help from a spiritual healer out of desperation, but all was in vain.
We then took him to Beijing for treatment, but doctors said that they could not treat him after comparing his blood with that of others. We went home in total despair.
One day, a Buddhist nun saw my son crawling on the ground and said to me, “Come and practice Buddhism. Then your son may be cured.”
So my son and I became followers of Buddhism. We burned incense and bowed to the Buddha statues. We even invited the nun to our house to chant scriptures to ward off calamities. Still, nothing worked. I cried to myself all day long and didn't feel like talking to anyone. I felt completely helpless.
I visited my mother one day in November 1997. My second eldest sister was there and she encouraged me to practice Falun Dafa.
My mother was also sick at that time. Since she was illiterate, she asked her granddaughter to read the Falun Dafa book Zhuan Falun to her out loud. In the evening, my sister taught us the exercises.
When I was doing the second set of exercises, “Holding the Wheel in Front of the Lower Abdomen,” I felt a Falun rotating in my left palm at a very fast speed and my palms felt very hot. It was an extremely nice feeling. Both my son and I had similar feelings.
When my son was seven years old, I said to him: “Go to school now. Master is purifying your body.” Indeed he felt well after he came back from school.
My son’s legs had been deformed, with one thinner than the other, and both without kneecaps. He began to feel pain from time to time, and his then kneecaps began to grow, bit by bit. Gradually he grew new kneecaps and his legs became normal!
Master also purified his head. One night his head swelled up like a big ball, but the swelling was all gone three days later.
One day when my son was taking a nap at lunchtime, he vaguely saw a man taking blood from his body with a syringe. I knew in my heart that Master Li (the founder of Falun Dafa) was changing blood for him and my son's body was purified one more time.
On another occasion, my son could not eat for three days and was running a high fever. I knew that Master was purifying his body again. On the evening of the third day, he ate a bit of rice and his auntie gave him a small bottle of a kid's drink. He vomited some blood clots and was completely back to normal the next day. Master had saved my son.
Jiang Zemin, the former leader of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and his political cohorts started persecuting Falun Dafa in July 1999. I was not afraid at all and told everyone I met that Falun Dafa is good.
Each time the police came to my house, I would tell them the stories about my son. No hospitals could cure him, but he became healthy by practicing Falun Dafa.
One day, I was on my way to mending some clothes. As I was riding my bike, the door of a car parked by the roadside opened all of a sudden, knocking me to the ground. The driver didn't dare to come out for fear that I might extort money from him.
I picked myself up and said to the driver: “Don't worry. I won't cause you any trouble. I'm a Falun Dafa practitioner.” I then talked to him about Falun Dafa and told him about the “quitting the CCP” movement. His mother was also listening inside the car. In the end, both of them agreed to quit the CCP.
Once, my son went back to our hometown to visit his father. Because he ignored Fa study and doing the exercises his legs began to hurt again. His father called me and asked me to take him back. I told him to take our son to a friend’s home (who is also a Falun Dafa practitioner) and that he must study the Fa.
At the same time, I looked within and checked myself. I realized that I still held a lot of sentimentality for my son. When he came back, we studied the Fa together and his legs were soon back to normal.
Recently, I had a very bad toothache. When I looked inward, I found various attachments I still held, such as a combative personality, resentment and jealousy.
My daughter-in-law's mother does not practice Falun Dafa. She spends a lot of time watching TV and is in poor health. I had been trying to change her by pushing her to practice Falun Dafa. I realized I was wrong, and my toothache was soon gone.
My daughter-in-law used to have a negative attitude towards Dafa, but now she also recites “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” because she has witnessed the wonderful things that happened to my son.
Once, she had some pain in her stomach but soon felt better after reciting “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” is good.”
My husband left me when I needed him most. My daughter was 16 and my son was only 13 at that time. I didn't want a divorce, but he was already living with someone else. It was really hard for me.
I thought that maybe this was how my life had been arranged and I must let go of everyday emotions. I didn't get angry with him and helped him to know that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.
Now, everyone in my daughter-in-law's family knows Dafa is good and they have all quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
I always try to adhere to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in my daily conduct and never fight with others for personal gain.
I must do well in being a diligent practitioner so I can talk to more people about the facts of Falun Dafa and awaken them.
