(Minghui.org) Twenty-five years ago my life was fulfilled and happy. Many people admired me. In my forties, however, things changed. I began feeling dizzy and didn’t dare to move when the illness hit me. If I moved, I would vomit. I began having stomachaches and sweated a lot. I didn’t sleep well for years.
I was diagnosed with lumbar disc herniation in 1995 and was treated in several big hospitals. Nothing helped and my condition became worse. I couldn’t do any household chores or look after my child. Instead I had to be taken care of and brought much trouble to my family. I was irritable and often lost my temper. I felt depressed and angry and cried a lot. Life became meaningless.
My family had almost been broken apart when a friend visited me and told me about Falun Dafa. After I practiced Falun Dafa for one month, my stomachache and dizziness disappeared. The lumbar disc herniation which had tortured me for six months became less severe. I could walk again and look after my child and my family! I cried with excitement and kowtowed to Master to pay my respect. Thank you, Master, for giving me a second life. I said to whoever I met that Falun Dafa is wonderful and miraculous.
Denouncing the CCP
Out of jealousy and despite the objections of millions of people, former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader Jiang Zemin started to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners nationwide in 1999.
One day the Party secretary of my company showed me a piece of paper on which it was written that I was a good person, how well I completed the job and how hardworking I was. At the bottom it said that the leaders talked to both me and my husband several times about my practicing Falun Dafa and they would talk to me again the next day. Due to my lack of compassion and my combativeness, I became agitated. “Sheer nonsense!” I said. This angered the Party secretary. She didn’t say anything. I questioned her, “When did you talk to me? When did you talk to my husband? Why did you talk to him since he doesn’t practice Falun Dafa? She was speechless. As a CCP cadre, she openly lied in order to maintain her power.
The next day the leaders talked to me and warned me that I would be demoted and my Party membership would be canceled if I didn’t give up my faith. I was told to make a choice. I certainly knew how precious Dafa was. I was not moved and said without any hesitation, “I choose Falun Dafa!” The Party secretary was furious and criticized me for being stubborn. I was demoted to the lowest level.
I am a Dafa disciple and will not tarnish Dafa. With a heart of saving sentient beings and letting go of the attachment of being afraid of losing face, I came to work with ease. I regarded this place as a huge cultivation opportunity and a place to save sentient beings. I felt the workers were my family members. I told them the facts about Falun Dafa and gave them truth-clarification materials whenever there was an opportunity.
One day all my colleagues were in the office. They asked me many questions. Master opened up my wisdom that day and the answers popped up in my mind. We talked all afternoon. After this conversation, three coworkers read Zhuan Falun and two people obtained the Fa and became genuine Falun Dafa practitioners.
After Master’s article “Turning the Wheel Towards the Human World” was published, practitioners helped all of the staff members in our workplace quit the CCP. I felt such a relief. I didn’t regret my choice. Though I suffered a bit in the lowest level, I helped two people obtain the Fa and dozens withdrew their memberships in the CCP.
Overcoming Family Tribulations
Family tribulations are harder to bear. My husband is a kind, upright and considerate person. He had a good impression of Falun Dafa seeing my great changes after I began practicing. He was very supportive. Before July 20, 1999, over thirty practitioners came to my home to study the Fa and practice the exercises. He didn’t complain at all. He helped clean the house and put cushions on the floor. In summer he swept the yard and kept it clean and tidy for us. Fellow practitioners praised him and respected him.
After the persecution started, I asked him what he would do if he was implicated and lost his job. He replied, “I can find a job somewhere else.” I was almost moved to tears.
He changed completely after I was illegally detained. He was so frightened that he didn’t allow me to study the Fa or do the exercises. I couldn’t even mention Falun Dafa. He knew Dafa was wronged, but he knew how evil the CCP was and he was terrified. When the TV programs smeared Dafa, he started fights with me. In order to pressure me to give up practicing, he cursed me and beat me. He hit me so hard with a belt that it was broken. But I didn’t hate him. I knew he was frightened by the CCP.
One day when he tried to force me to give up, I said, “This Fa I will surely study. This exercise I will surely practice. It is absolutely impossible for me to give up. So you do whatever you want!” Hearing this, he laughed instead. He didn’t interfere with me anymore. Sometimes he urged me to get up early to do the exercises in the morning. My life went back to normal. I passed this test with determination.
The Importance of Clarifying the Truth
One day my husband’s good friend came to visit us. I clarified the truth to him. My husband was afraid and tried to stop me. He said that his friend was a candidate for a Party secretary position. I wept after he left. My knowing side might have known what was about to happen to him. Several days later we learned that he became ill and was in a vegetative state. I told my husband that he had made a mistake and perhaps this would not have happened to his friend if he hadn’t prevented me from clarifying the truth to him. My husband was stunned and no longer interfered with my clarifying the truth to people.
One of my husband’s colleagues often visited us. Somehow I didn’t clarify the truth to him. He was sent to a city in the South to take training sessions. He suddenly fell to the ground during a meeting, foaming at the mouth and convulsing. He didn’t get any better after he was admitted to the hospital. My husband received a phone call from another colleague saying the hospital had issued a critical illness notice. I felt sad when I heard this. Why didn’t I clarify the truth to him? I pleaded to Master in my heart, “Master, I didn’t do well. Can you please give me another chance and give him another chance? If he gets better, I will definitely clarify the truth to him and his colleagues.”
The word “meningitis” flashed through my mind. I told my husband that his colleague suffered from meningitis and asked him to tell the doctor to give treatment accordingly. But another colleague told us that the doctor said that the medication he took might have caused his illness. The doctor issued another critical illness notice and a third notice in the evening. I told her urgently to tell the doctor to treat him for meningitis.
The next morning the colleague called and said he was finally diagnosed with meningitis. He got better after the treatment and was discharged from the hospital ten days later. The doctor said that he rarely saw anyone recover so quickly. The colleague came to see me first after he came home and was very thankful. I told him to thank our Master because Master asked me to save him. I clarified the truth to him and gave him a copy of Zhuan Falun. He held the book tightly.
I took this opportunity to clarify the truth to my colleagues and many other people. They knew that Falun Dafa is saving sentient beings.
Dissolving Negative Entities with Righteous Thoughts
My husband is a kind person and pays respect to Buddhas. But he didn’t know that Buddhas no longer occupy Buddha’s statues. In other dimensions foxes, weasels, ghosts, and snakes and other messy stuff occupy Buddha’s statues. One day he insisted that he bring a Buddha statue home. I tried to stop him.
I was studying the Fa at about 10 a.m on December 26, just before Chinese New Year. My husband came in happily carrying a Buddha statue. A man and a woman followed him. They put the statue in a good place. The woman used a mirror to do consecration, and the man murmured some words to the Buddha statue, telling it that it had to listen to the CCP.
What were they talking about? I would not allow those messy things in my home. I went to another room and sent strong righteous thoughts. I asked Master and righteous gods to strengthen me and eliminate those unrighteous things. I sent forth righteous thoughts for five minutes. I heard the man scream for help. I was surprised and didn’t want anyone to die in my home. I stopped sending righteous thoughts and went into the other room. The woman’s face was pale. She lay on the floor with her eyes closed and sweated heavily. My husband stood there dumbfounded. When my eyes met his eyes, he understood everything.
The woman regained consciousness after a while. We helped her up into a chair. Practitioners know that the evil spirits on her body couldn’t bear my righteous thoughts. After the evil spirits were removed, she became normal. I told them what Falun Dafa is and what Buddha is. I explained that the Buddha law taught by Shakyamuni had been around for more than two thousand years while the Communist Party had only existed for decades. How could Buddha listen to the Communist Party? I clarified the truth to them for half an hour. They gradually understood.
Not Missing Opportunities to Clarify the Truth
My mother lived on the 15th floor. There was a sudden power outage while she was moving to another house. Many things were piled up in the corridor, but we had to stop. The lady opposite our apartment came. She looked fragile and said to me in a weak voice, “Can you please come in and have a look at my air conditioner? It doesn’t work.” I found that the air conditioner couldn’t be closed off because the power was out.
She was very hospitable, moved a chair and asked me to sit beside her. Wasn’t it an opportunity Master created for me to tell her about Dafa? So I told her how people around the world practice Dafa, why the "Tiananmen self-immolation" was a hoax, what Falun Dafa was, what Communism was, why Jiang Zemin persecuted Falun Dafa, and why people need to quit their membership of the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I talked in an orderly way. She listened attentively to me and looked better and better.
Finally she said, “I had a dream last night that a big god would come to save me. So the big god is you!” She happily withdrew from the CCP and its affiliated organizations and thanked me again and again from the bottom of her heart. I asked her to thank the Master of Falun Dafa, as Master had arranged everything. She earnestly said, “thank you, Master” twice.
The power then came back on. I thanked Master for this opportunity to save her.
The police came to harass me at home many times in the past twenty years. My husband saw how terrible communism is and gradually developed righteous thoughts. A police officer called my husband since they couldn’t find me during the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008. My husband reprimanded them harshly. The police never contacted him again.
One day a police officer tried to arrest a practitioner but missed her. He decided to come to my home to have a look. When he was entering our yard, my husband returned and asked me who he was. I shouted that he was a police officer and wanted to search our home. My husband got angry and scolded him, “Who are you? What’s your name? Why do you come to my home?” The policeman said he didn’t feel it was the right time and left in a hurry.
My husband and his friend opened a small tea shop. One night he came back late and said that he told people about Falun Dafa. He often talked about the goodness of Falun Dafa and how I had changed for the better after I practiced. He even gave an audio player with Master’s lectures and the exercise music to a former practitioner and urged her to come back to Dafa.
My husband often attended parties and talked about Falun Dafa and how Dafa benefited his family. Several government officials and their families had a party and invited my husband. He asked me to go with him. I didn’t want to attend just to eat and have fun—but he insisted I go. One official mentioned Falun Dafa. He asked where a person came from, what was the purpose of coming to this world, and where people go after death. I answered his questions one by one according to Falun Dafa’s principles.
He also mentioned philosophy. I told him that Newton, the great scientist, was a pious Christian and that Einstein also believed in God in his later years. Why? When science reaches its limit, it can’t explain everything because science is limited. My husband said that what I said was correct. Everyone around the table gave me a thumbs up. I talked about the quitting the CCP movement after the meal and gave them keepsakes with words about Dafa. My husband said that I didn’t come in vain and suggested I attend more parties.
I attended another party without hesitation. When Falun Dafa was mentioned, my husband told them two stories of my diagnosing illness and how I helped eliminate a negative entity. Everyone said that Falun Dafa was powerful. I told them that our Master did it, not me.
I took this opportunity and clarified the truth to three people, gave them keepsakes and helped them withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. One official repeatedly thanked me. I felt happy for them and thanked my husband for offering me opportunities and helping me clarify the truth. He smiled.
One day I met an old classmate who worked in a government department. While I talked with him, my husband helped me and said, “Yes, quit the CCP. It is the trend now.” Encouraged by my husband, my classmate agreed to withdraw from the CCP without any hesitation.
My husband accompanies me when I distribute truth-clarification materials. He gave QR code cards and keepsakes to his friends and asked them to find more information online by circumventing the CCP’s firewall. Some people scanned the code immediately.
Local practitioners say that my husband looks younger and energetic. Some said that although he doesn’t cultivate, he’s in a state of cultivation. I asked him to practice Falun Dafa. He replied that he had his own mission. I understood that he meant the old forces would not harm him because he was not a practitioner. His mission was to protect me.
