(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in the spring of 2013. My daughter brought back several copies of the book Zhuan Falun from Canada to me in China, and since then I have been studying the Fa and practicing the exercises.

In the past seven years, I have truly experienced the greatness and power of Dafa. Not only did it cure the illnesses that had bothered me for most of my life, Dafa also taught me how to improve my xinxing so that I can overcome my fear and clarify the truth about Dafa to people in China and abroad.

I used to have a lot of ailments, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. My legs and feet were in bad shape, my body began to sag in my 60s, and I could not stand. Doctors said I needed a knee replacement as well as back surgery, but I declined.

The many medications I took could not really help me. I could not eat much because of the disease, and I always feared that my illnesses could not be cured, which gave me a lot of psychological pressure.

This heavy burden was lifted when I started practicing Falun Dafa. With the help of Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, I feel that my body has become light without any illness.

Master saved my life again last December, when my husband and I were still in China. We had booked tickets to Canada for December 30th. On the 12th, he had to climb up to the attic, so I helped hold the ladder for him. When he was almost done, the big metal ladder suddenly fell. The ladder hit me on my forehead and again on my thigh, and my husband fell to the ground. I almost lost consciousness. I stood there and felt like I was going to die.

As soon as I gained a little consciousness, I began to say, “Falun Dafa is good.” I then saw my husband lying on the ground, not breathing. Someone came and put my husband on the sofa. When my husband started to breathe slowly, I asked him to say “Falun Dafa is good” with me. We both survived, and I knew very well that it was Master who had saved us.

Although my forehead and leg were swollen, I believed that I would be fine if I cultivated Dafa and truly conducted myself as a practitioner. The next day, my entire face was bruised, and my thighs became purple. I walked with a limp, but I continued to do the Dafa exercises every day. Soon these bruises disappeared, and I could walk normally. I am very grateful to Master.

Since childhood, I have had a strong attachment to fear. But after I started to practice Dafa, I was not afraid of anything at all. Although Falun Dafa is persecuted in China, through cultivation I overcame my fears and could stand in front of the Chinese Embassy holding up banners, talk to Chinese tourists on Parliament Hill about the persecution, distribute flyers, and call my family, friends and other people to tell them to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party.

When I was in China, although I could not clarify the truth to people as freely as in Canada, we still played Dafa music and practiced the exercises at home every day and wrote ”Falun Dafa is good” on paper currency. (Editor’s note: Some practitioners in China use bills with these messages to raise awareness of the persecution because they have been denied all legal forms of appeal.) I feel that as long as I have righteous thoughts, I do not need to worry. When sometimes a slight thought of fear comes up, I will say to myself, “I have Master. What am I afraid of?” And then I can calmly continue doing what I should do.

I sincerely want to thank Master for giving me this precious opportunity for cultivation. I will cherish the opportunity and practice Dafa more diligently.
