Husband Overcomes Illness with Sincere Belief in Falun Dafa

Nov. 1, 2021 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in China

(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. My husband witnessed my improved physical and mental health and knows that Falun Dafa is good. He occasionally reads Falun Dafa books, too.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners on July 20, 1999, and I was illegally detained in a labor camp. As a family member, my husband also experienced the physical and mental trauma caused by the persecution. He is a good and upright person, and he knew Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is righteous. Recently, with my encouragement, he began to practice Falun Dafa.

Husband Experiencing Sickness

My son’s parents-in-laws wanted to take my husband and me out for dinner on March 8, 2021. My husband went out to buy some fruit to bring to the dinner. When he took out his cell phone to pay, he suddenly had vertigo, and everything, including vehicles, became blurry. He was alarmed. He told the street vendor to hold the fruits for him because he needed to go to the nearby pharmacy immediately.

He walked to the pharmacy in a haze. He had his blood pressure taken, bought some anti-hypertension medication, and took it immediately. He felt an inexplicable fear and did not know what to do, so he panicked. After a while, he could gradually see clearly again. He walked out of the pharmacy and picked up the fruits. He was barely able to ride his electric bicycle to join us at the restaurant.

He told me what happened as soon as he saw me. He looked fine except a little gloomy.

When we got home after dinner, he wanted to lie down. I said, “Don’t be afraid. Sincerely recite ‘Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!’ and you will be fine. Plus you are practicing Dafa now, Master is watching over you, and nothing bad will happen. I’m completely healthy because I’ve been practicing Dafa for so many years. You know that.”

He said, “I’m not as diligent as you are. Will Master take care of me?” I said, “If you truly believe in Dafa, Master will take care of you.” He did not ask to go to the hospital. He believed Master was helping him get rid of karma.

My mother-in-law was living with us, and my mother was staying with us for a few days. My husband looked fine the next day, except that he lacked some energy. He helped me with housework in the morning.

On the third day, he had no energy. He did not want the two older women to worry about him, so he pretended everything was fine and chatted with them. But very soon he had to lay down and rest.

He looked pale, his gaze was confused, and he was under a lot of stress. I asked him how he was feeling. He said, “I am so dizzy that I can’t walk. The back of my head hurts so much on the left side.”

I said, “Don’t be afraid, this is all good. It’s because you have begun practicing Dafa, and Master is eliminating karma for you and purifying your body. Just endure and you will be fine. You must believe in Master!” He said, “I know.”

He was in bed all day and did not eat anything. My mother-in-law was worried and checked on him from time to time.

At night, he suddenly began to vomit non-stop. He hadn’t eaten anything so nothing but bitter liquid came out. He said he had poor digestion for a few days. My mother-in-law was even more worried [translator’s note: It is believed in Chinese culture that emptying one’s inside is part of the dying process].

My mother, who is also a Dafa disciple, kept encouraging my husband, “I’ve suffered illness karma a few times, and each time I felt better given my steadfast belief in Dafa. Otherwise, I would have died a long time ago. Just believe in Dafa and believe in Master, and you will be fine.” My husband nodded, “I believe. I believe.” His painful expression revealed he was still under a lot of pressure.

On the morning of the fourth day, my husband asked me not to do any stir-fries because he could not bear the smell of oil frying. I made some millet porridge and served it with some pickles as a simple breakfast for the elders.

My husband managed to get up and walk. He wanted to get some fresh air and insisted on going by himself. The elders were so worried watching him leave, especially my mother-in-law.

After a little while, my husband called me on the phone. He said he couldn’t walk any further and was sitting by the flower bed in the neighborhood. I was taken aback. I put down my chores and went looking for him.

Before I shut the door behind me, I told my mother and mother-in-law, “Mom, relax, Dafa’s Master is in charge. He will be fine. Starting this moment, please keep reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!’ while visualizing him. This would be the greatest help you can give him.” They agreed, “Yes, we will do it.” Their frowns were relaxed and they became a little less nervous.

I walked out of the apartment building and saw my husband sitting on the concrete platform of the flower bed with his head down, drawing something on the ground with a twig. I walked to him, and he looked up. His painful expression reminded me that life is short and painful. He had told me in the past that men in his family lived short lives and all died in their 50s. He was 60. He must be feeling so sad and helpless!

I asked him, “How are you feeling?” He said, “I can’t walk anymore. I’m dizzy and about to fall.” He put his hand on his heart and said, “I’m feeling pain here.” I knew he was under a lot of pressure, and with the illness being so real and with such a short time of Dafa practice, he was not certain whether Master Li would take care of him.

I said, “You went through a medical check-up a few years ago and were diagnosed with high blood pressure, high blood lipids, and coronary heart disease, and your digestive system was having some problems too. As you get older, who knows what other health problems may surface. If you go to the hospital today, you will have to pay for your treatment up front.”

“Putting aside the money you will be spending and the pain you will endure, hospitals only give you medical treatment, but not a guaranteed cure. I know you’re suffering, and I understand the mental pressure you are under. You’re worried that your life would be in danger if you don’t go to the hospital now. In my view, you still do not truly believe that Falun Dafa can bring you physical and mental health.”

Recalling Family Recovering from Sickness

I continued saying, “I started practicing Dafa in 1996, and I’m so healthy that I have not taken a single pill in 24 years. My oldest nephew was born with severe asphyxia due to the umbilical cord wrapping around his neck and causing the brain to be deprived of oxygen. Experts at the major hospital told the family that the baby was doomed, and even if he survived, he would be a retarded person.

“My youngest sister’s twin grandsons were born prematurely, one weighed 1.8 jin (2 pounds) and the other weighed 2.2 jin (2.4 pounds). The parents and grandparents didn’t want them, worrying the twin would become disabled and they could not afford their treatment. Aren’t all of these children healthy now?

“Isn’t it because our family members sincerely recited the nine true words, ‘Falun Dafa is good!’ and ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!’ so that miracles occurred? You have personally experienced all of this. Why do you waver and not believe in Dafa? Master Li doesn’t want a penny from you. As long as you believe in Dafa, he can purify your body.”

Listening to me talking, tears quietly ran down his face. I asked him, “Do you believe in Dafa?” He lifted his head and said firmly, “I do.” His voice gave me such peace of mind because I knew he was saved.

I said to him, “Please sit here and wait, I’ll go get something from the supermarket, and we’ll go home together.” He nodded. I quickly went to the supermarket and bought several bags of vegetables and fruits. I carried them to him and said, “Let’s go home!”

He said, “You go ahead first. I’m too dizzy to walk, I’ll fall.” But he obviously had strength in his voice. I said, “It’s okay, just give it a try. You won’t fall.” He looked up at me, and I was smiling at him. Hesitantly, he stood up and slowly took a few small steps. I followed him and said, “Aren’t you doing just fine?”

After a few more steps forward, he turned around and said, “Let me help you. Give me two bags.” I said, “Are you sure?” He said, “Yes, I’m sure.” I said happily, “Look, you were saying you would fall, but look at you, you are walking and carrying things. Awesome!” He walked steadily with two heavier bags in his hands. Compared to a moment ago, his change was incredible.

When we got home, I greeted my mother and mother-in-law. They saw my husband walking in with bags in his hands, and said happily, “You are well?” My teary-eyed husband replied, “Yes, I am well.”

Putting down the bags, my husband burned incense in front of Master’s portrait, and then, he knelt down and kowtowed to Master with hands in Heshi. Tears were streaming down his face as he thanked Master for saving his life.

After he got up, my mother-in-law also knelt down in front of Master’s portrait with hands in heshi, thanking Master for saving her son’s life. My mother and I also had tears of gratitude for Master.

Over the next two days, my husband’s condition got better and better, and all the symptoms of his various diseases eventually disappeared.

Later, my youngest sister and her husband who both worked at a hospital learned about the incident. They arranged a comprehensive medical checkup for my husband, and the results showed that everything was normal and he was in good health.

My husband said emotionally, “I now know why Falun Dafa practitioners are so steadfast in their belief. I now know what true faith is. I have truly felt the extraordinary power of Falun Dafa and the Master’s compassion. Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”

This was the true story of how my husband experienced a sudden attack of an illness, and how he was completely cured by developing sincere faith in Falun Dafa.
