(Minghui.org) My intense headaches were so severe that I lost the desire to live. I was suffering with many other health problems as well, such as a gastric ulcer, neurosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and chronic bronchitis, to name a few. So I decided to learn Falun Dafa to improve my health.

My Journey to Dafa 

I had sought medical help from many experts, but to no avail. I was desperate and even had thoughts of suicide.

One day my child came home and told me that a group of people were sitting in the snow with their eyes closed. That piqued my interest. My child said that they were in a nearby wooded area but he did not know what they were doing.

I later found the group in a park close to my house and discovered they were doing something called Falun Dafa. When I spoke with them, they were very kind to me. After hearing how I was suffering, they told me that many people with health problems even worse than mine had recovered after practicing Falun Dafa.

A friendly, elderly lady took me to her home to help me learn the exercises. I found out that she was once so sick that she could not even hold chopsticks, and her children thought she was going to die. However, she regained her health after attending Teacher Li Hongzhi's lectures. She had been practicing Falun Dafa for many years.

In her home I saw a picture of the founder and teacher of the practice and felt numbness on the top of my head. The sensation was like electricity passing through my whole body toward my feet. When I told her what I was feeling, she said, “You have a predestined relationship. Teacher Li has started to watch over you and is cleansing your body.”

I was happy and thought that Teacher was so compassionate—and he seemed so familiar!

When I was doing the first exercise, I felt a stream of cold air going down my body. After that, I felt hot, yet comfortable. I raised my arms and held them in the shape of a circle for the second exercise and felt something spinning around my arms. The practitioner told me it was a Falun (law wheel) spinning. She also encouraged me to improve gradually but steadily when she noticed that I was not yet able to cross both of my legs in the lotus position to do the sitting meditation.

On the third day, during an afternoon nap, I felt something rotating in my lower abdomen. I knew that Teacher had installed a Falun for me. I was too excited to sleep, so I got up to listen to recordings of his lectures.

In addition to learning the exercises, I also began to study the Fa teachings. When Zhuan Falun was first published, there were far fewer books than practitioners, so many people shared one book and took turns reading it. 

Because I was a new practitioner, I was given priority to buy one. Other practitioners explained to me that the book was precious, so I had to treat it with respect. They suggested that I wash my hands before handling it, not write in it, and not fold the pages. I also made sure to always keep the book in a clean place.

My Dramatic Recovery

Several days after I began to learn Falun Dafa, my health problems disappeared, including the painful headaches. Teacher Li saved me from such desperation without asking for anything in return. Whenever I think of it, I am infinitely grateful to him!

A month later, we had our regular physical exams at work and I was given a clean bill of health. Everyone at work knew about my quick and dramatic recovery after practicing Falun Dafa. My work unit then decided to start a practice site for people to learn the exercises and study the Fa during their lunch break. Many people attended, including supervisors. 

On the weekends, other practitioners would come to my home to watch Teacher's lecture videos. Some traveled far to attend and stayed late to finish watching. Many commented on the amazing energy field. 


These memories are from 25 years ago when I was a new practitioner. I am over 70 years old now. I have remained in good health and live on my own without assistance from my children or other relatives. I often take care of them, instead, and lend a hand whenever needed.
