Falun Dafa Saved My Husband
(Minghui.org) My 77-year-old husband is a veteran of the Chinese Army. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) shaped the rude and stubborn person he eventually became. He had also developed the habit of drinking alcohol since he was young.
In 2002, my husband was diagnosed with a rare disease. His neck became severely swollen and his back was covered with tumors. He visited many hospitals, but the disease couldn’t be diagnosed or cured. He gave up on ever finding a cure. When he felt uncomfortable, he would take some general pain medicine for temporary relief. Feeling depressed and isolated, he would go out for a walk every day even if it was rainy.
I was very worried about him. I tried many times to talk with him about the beauty of Falun Dafa cultivation practice. But he always refused to listen and even slandered Falun Dafa. After the CCP launched the persecution, he opposed my practicing Falun Dafa.
My husband developed a severe respiratory condition in 2017. For four days, he couldn’t eat anything. Lying in bed, he tearfully said to me, “I can’t make it.”
I thought to myself that deep down my husband had a good heart. It’s the CCP who poisoned his mind. I should try to save him. He shouldn’t be dying for the CCP. I asked Master [Falun Dafa's founder] to save him. I said to my husband, “Only Master can save you. You need to sincerely repeat the nine special words ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ If you can’t say this aloud, you can recite the words in your mind.” And I further clarified how people were saved by saying those words with dedication.
About fifteen minutes later, he told me, “Go to sleep. I’m fine now.” I could feel the strength in his voice. I knew that he was out of danger and Master had saved him. I put my hands together and thanked Master.
I could barely sleep that night as I was still worried about my husband. At about five o’clock the next morning, while I was doing the exercises, I heard him open the door and go outside.
He returned an hour and a half later. As soon as he opened the door, he said, “I’m so relaxed. I feel so peaceful.” I asked him what had happened while he was out. He responded with tremendous joy, “I went out and repeated those nine words loudly. Looking at the sky, I said those words. Looking at the earth, I said those words. Looking at the trees, I said those words...”
He was able to eat a good breakfast that morning and didn’t drink any wine. At first, I thought he had quit drinking. I was a little disappointed when he started to resume drinking alcohol at lunchtime. From then on, he often recited the nine words I had taught him.
A year passed. I was expressing my gratitude to Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, on World Falun Dafa Day in 2018. I suggested to my husband that he also express his gratitude to Master for saving him. He immediately looked at Master’s photo and said, “I’m not a qualified Dafa student yet. But I will discipline myself in the future.”
My husband took out his wine bottle the next morning and said, “Let’s give it to our son. I won’t drink any more.” I couldn’t believe it! He had been drinking for over fifty years. Could he really just stop all of a sudden? He was indeed sincere and determined.
My husband has changed a lot since then. From the bottom of his heart, he acknowledged that Falun Dafa is indeed good. He listens to recordings of Master’s lectures every day. He doesn’t forget to repeat the nine special words I taught him and joins me in truth-clarification activities. He tells his friends about the beauty of Falun Dafa and truly puts his heart into doing the three things.
As my husband’s xinxing improved, his body underwent a dramatic change. The swelling in his neck has been significantly reduced. Amazingly, a disease that could not be explained by modern medicine is cured by Falun Dafa. It is definitely a miracle!
