Falun Dafa Cured My Son’s Mental Illness and Saved My Father's Life
(Minghui.org) My son has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD. He has difficulty focusing, is never able to properly answer questions, and is always living in his own world. Back when we used to be in China, my son’s teachers would always force him to go to doctors and test his IQ (in reality, his IQ is 130 and he does quite well in his academics). The doctors would prescribe a lot of medication for him, and the medications have made him lethargic, which resulted in a loss of appetite, and oftentimes he would also have a blank stare. He is also disliked by his teachers and classmates.
I believed that my son could do better, so I decided to have him study abroad. I wanted to do what I could to protect my son and give him a normal life.
My son’s ADHD symptoms improved after moving overseas and he became more outgoing and happy. At times, he would still twitch and make noises in his throat and twitch his eyebrows.
Encountering and Receiving Blessings from Falun Dafa
Last year, two of my friends who cultivated Falun Dafa (Falun Gong) taught my son the way we should conduct ourselves. Miraculously, my son stopped twitching! I was very happy! However, due to the influence of Chinese media, I did not continue learning about Falun Gong. My friend lent me the book Zhuan Falun, but I had no interest in reading it at all.
My son’s twitching worsened this past October. Not only was he making noises in his throat, but his shoulders were also twitching uncontrollably. I became very scared. He completely lost control of his shoulder, facial and throat muscles. He was also in extreme discomfort. I was terribly anxious! What should I do? If I’d gone to the doctors, all they would have done is prescribe him more medication which might not even work!
I suddenly thought about how my son’s twitches disappeared after my friends taught him some principles about Falun Dafa. I thought maybe I should give it a try again. I immediately called up my Falun Dafa practitioner friend. She told me to recite: “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” My son also got on the phone and started to recite “Falun Dafa is good” with the practitioner.
After reciting “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” several times, my son stopped twitching! Thinking back now, it was truly unbelievable!
My son’s physical state became normal the next day with occasional noises coming from his throat. We went over to the practitioner’s house and wanted to see if there was any way of stopping the noise from his throat. Upon stepping in her house, the noise from my son’s throat completely disappeared! It was a miracle!
That friend of mine taught us how to recite Lunyu and how to practice the fourth exercise. She also told us to read Zhuan Falun and helped me download an online version of it.
Upon returning home, I hand-copied Lunyu from Zhuan Falun. Whenever we had time, we followed my friend’s recommendation and I started to recite Lunyu with my son. However, I’d never once thought about reading Zhuan Falun. Perhaps it was not time for me to obtain the Fa yet.
Falun Dafa Gives My Father a Second Chance at Life
One afternoon, a relative from China called and said that my father was in critical condition and was sent to the emergency room. I started to panic. Without any hesitation, I called my practitioner friend who was very calm and told me to have my relatives and I recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She also told me to start reading Zhuan Falun. I called back home in China and told my relatives to recite the “nine special words.” My relatives all had a good impression of Falun Dafa since they knew how my son no longer twitched after encountering Dafa.
I was able to open up the book Zhuan Falun. Initially, I had a lot of interference and did not want to open the book. However, after intensively reading Zhuan Falun, I actually had tears in my eyes! I sincerely asked Master Li (the founder) to save my father!
After reading a section in the book, my relative told me that my father had a tube put in his trachea to administer medicine and was in stable condition.
When I was calling my friend, my father’s life was actually in imminent danger. While tolerating my anxiety and sadness and reading the first lecture in Zhuan Falun, my father’s condition became stable and he was sent to the intensive care unit (ICU).
My friend told me: “It is pointless for you to be scared; you should read Zhuan Falun and have your relatives in China recite, ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’”
According to the doctors in China, my father was supposed to have the tube in his trachea for at least two days, but he only needed it for 24 hours. After another 24 hours, my father left the ICU and was transferred to the cardiology intensive care unit. Two days later, he was transferred to the general ward and they removed the tube.
During the time my father was hospitalized, my son and I read Zhuan Falun three times and my son memorized two paragraphs of Lunyu. In the past, my son disliked reading books; this time, however, he voluntarily memorized Lunyu and I was quite surprised!
We learned how to practice the first four exercises of Falun Gong and did them every day alongside studying the Fa. The day before yesterday, while I was practicing the fourth exercise, my abdominal area felt very warm. I inquired about this occurrence and my friend told me that Master is installing a Falun (law wheel) for me!
I am truly grateful to Master! Great and benevolent Master has cured my son’s twitching and also saved my father! I have also benefitted!
Blessings I Have Received from Dafa
I’ve had insomnia for many years. Each time that I’d read Zhuan Falun I would feel very tired. I persisted in reading one lecture before taking a nap. After waking up from a 30-minute nap, I would feel very refreshed! I was also able to fall asleep at night! My shoulders would also feel very sore when I did the second exercise because I have issues with my cervical spine. Even so, I would persist in doing the second exercise every day. My shoulders felt very comfortable after three or four days and my arms felt more at ease doing the third exercise.
My son would feel something supporting his arms whenever he’s unable to hold the position for the second exercise. This was truly amazing! He is now able to hold the positions for a longer period of time!
This proves that Dafa is boundless and great! I am very grateful to Dafa! Dafa has protected my family and given us a peaceful life. Thank you, Master, for saving us!
In addition, I’ve also benefitted a lot from studying the Fa. In the past, I would yell and be angry at my son. Now, I don’t get so angry and the relationship between my son and I improved a lot. Prior to studying the Fa, my son would be very picky and could not handle being wrong. He would also be very stingy and complain to me. Now, he is stronger mentally and would not be angry even if he was wronged. He happily asked me: “You see, did I tolerate it well?” He is also slowly assimilating to the new environment in Europe and I am truly happy for him.
I’ve only studied the Fa for a week-and-a-half and my understandings of the Fa are not that deep yet. I will study the Fa and cultivate myself well with my son. I’ve already managed to have my mother, father, mother-in-law and father-in-law quit the Chinese Communist Party and its youth organizations.
My practitioner friends say that I am now a Falun Dafa practitioner as well! This is a very fortunate thing! I am filled with happiness and feel blessed every day!
Thank you, Master! Thank you, Falun Dafa!
I am very grateful to my Falun Dafa practitioner friends!
