(Minghui.org) It has been 23 years since I started practicing Falun Dafa, and I’ve had some amazing experiences that enabled me to further understand the profound, extraordinary, and magnificent power of Dafa—the great Way of the universe. My family members and I have also experienced the immense and boundless compassion of Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa.

I Regained My Health in Two Weeks

I began to have high blood pressure when I was 32. As time went on, I was plagued with more ailments, including heart disease, cerebral vasospasm, glaucoma, rheumatoid arthritis, an ovarian cyst, and cervical hyperostosis. I was taking handfuls of medicines every day and my face looked sick and sallow.

In the spring of 1996, I fainted at work and was taken to a hospital emergency room. I was so sick that the hospital issued a “notice of critical condition.” I couldn’t go to work anymore and had to go to the hospital frequently. I was taking all kinds of medicine, both Chinese and Western, every day, and had an operation to have an adrenal tumor removed. But nothing helped.

Life became even more miserable after I came down with rheumatoid arthritis—all my joints got swollen and painful. I could not use an air conditioner or electric fan in the summer, nor could I touch cold water any season of the year. Within six months, my joints began to deform and the pain was unbearable. My family spent all our savings to have me treated and started to build up debts.

Even though my husband and our son and daughter took great care of me, my condition kept deteriorating. Life was miserable for all of us, and the happiness and joy we used to have in abundance was gone.

To get better, I tried two kinds of qigong, but nothing worked and much money went down the drain. So when someone told me about Falun Gong, I was very skeptical and shook my head. However, as the pain in my body became worse, I went to the local practice site just to give it a try. It turned out to be a day that I would never forget. On that day, October 25, 1998, I began to practice Falun Gong.

I learned the first four exercises in the first week and the fifth one, the meditation exercise, the following week. When I was meditating, I could feel something rotating all over my body, from my head to my neck and shoulders, to my hips and knees, but I couldn’t see anything. I asked others about it, and they all smiled and told me, “It is Master adjusting your body with Falun.” That was the first extraordinary experience I had.

Apart from joining the daily group Fa study, I also read one or two lectures in the book Zhuan Falunevery day, from which I’ve understood many profound principles, such as the origin of one’s life, the purpose of being human, why we get ill, and that, as a cultivator, one must be strict about conducting oneself according to the universal principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I was completely convinced by these principles and eager to keep reading the book.

Gradually, my head stopped aching and I could sleep very soundly at night. I no longer needed to take the quick-acting pills to relieve heart pain. My blurry vision became clearer and the pain in my hand joints disappeared when I touched cold water!

All this happened in just two weeks after I took up the practice of Falun Gong. It was truly incredible! I realized that I was completely cured. Happy and excited, I threw away all my medications, and for 23 years now, I have never needed to take any medicine, nor have I spent a cent on medical treatment.

My family was overjoyed to see the miraculous changes in me, from someone at death’s door to someone with glowing health in such a short time, especially my husband, who started to learn Falun Gong with me that same day. My daughter became a practitioner a month later. Even though my son doesn’t practice, he believes Falun Dafa is good and has always been very supportive of us.

Family Members Blessed for Supporting Falun Dafa

Like countless others, my family has also suffered all kinds of persecution and pressure since July 1999 when the Chinese Communist Party launched the nation-wide suppression of Falun Gong.

I was unlawfully given one year of forced labor; my daughter was held in a detention center for months and sent to a brainwashing center; and my husband endured two years of forced labor and passed away on December 21, 2004.

All these dealt heavy blows to my son and my daughter-in-law, who were under enormous pressure. Still, they have always stood by us and supported our cultivation in Dafa.

I started to clarify the truth to people and persuade them quit the CCP organizations in 2005 when the campaign to do that was launched. Straight away my son and my daughter-in-law quit the Youth League and the Young Pioneers they had joined when they were young.

They kept the Dafa amulets with them all the time and often quietly recited, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

A former schoolmate of my son’s came to our place for a visit. As I was about to clarify the truth to him, my son said, “Mom, let me do it this time.” He told his friend about Falun Dafa with good reasoning and told him why people should quit the CCP organizations.

His friend listened, agreeing with everything my son was telling him, and agreed to quit the Youth League and the Young Pioneers on the spot. I felt really happy for my son for what he did.

In September in 2005, a plainclothes officer stopped me on my way home from grocery shopping. He ordered me to go to the police station with him. I refused and called out for my son.

We live on the ground floor and my son happened to be home that day. He came out as soon as he heard me calling him and challenged the officer, “What do you want? Why do you stop my mom from going back to her own home?”

The man became a bit timid and said, “My superiors want your mother to go to the police station. I’m only following orders.”

“Tell me what my mother has done wrong that she should be summoned to the police station,” my son challenged the man again.

“I don’t know,” the man murmured. “They just want her to go there, and it won’t take long before she comes back.”

“No way! My mom is not going to any police station,” my son said.

“I haven’t violated any law by practicing Falun Gong,” I said. “Why should I go with you?”

All of a sudden, the man took a few steps back as if he’d been pushed. My son took the opportunity to pull me inside and lock the door.

Then I heard someone else said to the man, “How could you let her get away?” Apparently, there were two of them outside.

“Go and tell your supervisors that you have met me, but I refused to go with you,” I said to the men from inside the door before they left. “Tell them you have done your bit today, but don’t do anything like this again. It’s not good for you.”

Back in the room, my son tried to light a cigarette, but his hands were shaking. I could tell that he was in a panic after what had just happened.

“Don’t be afraid, son. All will be fine,” I encouraged him as he calmed down.

As I recalled how the man suddenly took a few steps back for no apparent reason and my son was able to pull me inside, I realized that Master had protected me at that moment. Tears of deep gratitude filled my eyes.

I wasn’t very good at truth-clarification at that time and didn’t have enough compassion. I regretted that I failed to clarify the truth to the two men who came to my door.

In 2013, my daughter was home on her own when someone knocked on the door and she opened it. Several people barged in and took her to the police station. She managed to call my son on the way.

My son and my daughter-in-law went straight to the police station and asked everyone they came across about my daughter, but they all tried to pass the buck and refused to release her.

My son had to go to work, so my son-in-law, my grandson, my daughter-in-law, and I went to the police station again in the afternoon. There were three female police officers on duty and we told them why we were there. They gave us the cold shoulder and totally ignored us.

Seeing that they were hostile to Falun Gong, likely due to the slanderous propaganda put out by the communist regime, my son-in-law clarified to them the facts about Tiananmen Square Self-immolation hoax in 2001. It was one of the worst propaganda stunts to defame Falun Dafa, and many people were scared of the practice because of it.

“First, the man’s padded clothes were burned, but his hair wasn’t, and the plastic Sprite bottle filled with gasoline remained undamaged. Second, how could the young girl who’d supposedly had a tracheotomy after suffering severe burns speak so clearly and even also sing a song?”

As he was talking, the three police officers began to show signs of surprise. One of them offered to make an inquiry for us but was told they could not release my daughter just yet.

We lingered outside the police station to look for opportunities to talk to the officers. I was sending forth righteous thoughts continuously, and some fellow practitioners who learned about what had happened to my daughter also sent forth righteous thoughts to support her.

At around 4 p.m., a police officer brought my daughter out. He was in charge of our neighborhood and I had clarified the truth to him a number of times before. “So your whole family supports Falun Gong!” he said when he saw us outside the station.

“Yes, all my family members support Falun Gong!” I said with a smile.

Later, my daughter told me that she kept sending forth righteous thoughts while she was detained and clarified the truth about Falun Gong to everyone she saw. With Master’s protection and our righteous thoughts, my daughter overcame the tribulation without any harm.

My son and my daughter-in-law are also blessed for believing and supporting Falun Dafa. My son’s chronic gastric ulcers and bleeding has disappeared, and my daughter-in-law is also freed from the stubborn purpuric nephritis. They both are very grateful to Falun Dafa and Master Li.

My son also survived a serious accident unharmed. He was test riding a motorbike after getting it repaired and crashed into a big truck parked by the side of the road. He was thrown into the air, landed in the middle of the road, and lost consciousness. When he came to, he touched his head, hands and feet, and realized they were all fine. So he picked himself up and walked a few steps, again, with no problem. He noticed that his clothes and pants were torn in a few places and there were some bruises in his hands and feet, but there was no pain or bleeding. But the motorbike was in pieces, a complete write-off.

Even though my son was not injured, he was in shock and took off work the next day. He went back to work the following day. When he called me and told me what had happened, I said to him in tears, “You know, it was Master who saved you. We must forever cherish Master’s kindness and great virtue!” “Yes, Mom. I’ll remember,” my son said sincerely.

My Relatives Are Blessed after Quitting the CCP Organizations

We are a large family—there are six siblings in my family and seven in my husband’s, and there are more than a hundred of us when we include everyone in our immediate family and close relatives.

I have clarified the truth about Falun Gong to all of them on various occasions, such as weddings, birthday parties, festive gatherings, etc. Most of them quit the CCP organizations after learning the truth and are blessed for supporting Dafa.

In 2007, my son-in-law’s mother was suffering from depression. She was often in a trance and tried to jump off a building or into water. She would stay up all night and throw up whatever she ate. The doctor said there was a bulging pouch between her stomach and intestines, messing up her digestive system.

She lost weight rapidly, from over 60 kilos to around 40. I suggested that she have the pouch surgically removed, but my son-in-law said that due to the unusual location of the growth, she would likely end up with intestinal adhesions, which could lead to long-term suffering.

When I visited her, she was very upset and kept weeping. I further clarified the truth about Falun Gong to her and told her instances of how people recovered from illnesses by sincerely reciting the phrases “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

She listened carefully, believed what I told her, and tried to recite the two phrases. As she is illiterate, I taught her to recite the phrases word by word.

By the end of the day, she felt a lot better and much less depressed. Still, she had trouble sleeping and eating. I told her daughter to keep reciting the phrases with her mom whenever she had time. By the third day, her mom managed to sleep for over an hour at night, and when she woke up in the morning, she said she wanted to eat some porridge. After that, she got better every day and was able to sleep longer at night and eat more solid food during the day.

On the fifth day, she asked me, “Can I also say ‘Master Li is truly good’ at the end of the two phrases?”

“Of course you can!” I held her hands and encouraged her, “You can! Just keep doing it!”

Three weeks later, she was completely back to normal, with a rosy complexion and a normal weight of 60 kilos as before. Fourteen years have passed since then, and she is still happy and healthy, because she keeps reciting the two precious phrases every day.

There have been other amazing experiences among my relatives. For example, my brother-in-law suffered from a herniated lumbar intervertebral disc. His condition did not improve after rounds of treatment within traditional Chinese medicine, Western medicine, massage, and physiotherapy. When I told him about the two phrases, he started to recite them straight away, and to everyone’s amazement, the pain in his back disappeared ten minutes later!

Witnessing what happened, his elder sister exclaimed, “It’s magic! I’ll recite the phrases, too!”

She had been suffering from lung disease for years, and whenever she fell ill, she would cough so such she vomited blood. It was common for her to be hospitalized three or four times a year.

One day she called me and said, “I haven’t been sick for a whole year, no hospital stays, and I now go for a walk in the park every day!”

My Colleagues Also Learned the Truth

I play an essential role at work and have always been conscientious and productive, I so I had a good reputation and my colleagues respected me.

Due to the defamatory CCP propaganda, many people in China, my colleagues included, developed misunderstandings about and even hated Falun Gong. My colleagues who believed the lies started to keep away from me.

I didn’t take it to heart and clarified the facts to them whenever possible. Gradually, their attitude changed.

In the past, due to poor health, I was known for being “always sick” or “a medicine jar.” After I took up the practice of Falun Gong, I glowed with health, with no more hospital visits or reimbursements for medical expenses.

“Is it true that she no longer gets reimbursed for any medical expenses?” some of mycolleagues asked the accountant in disbelief.

“Yes, she hasn’t claimed a cent for medical treatment all this time,” the accountant confirmed.

This amazing fact helped many of my colleagues change their attitude towards Falun Gong.

Many of them have traveled abroad and were very surprised to see Falun Gong practitioners everywhere, doing the exercises or clarifying the truth to people, especially in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

“I saw many Falun Gong practitioners in Taiwan!” one of them told me.

Other colleagues took a trip to Pingtang County in Guizhou to see the mystical “Hidden Character Stone,” which was discovered in 2002. There are six clearly visible characters that read “The Chinese Communist Party Will Perish” on the surface of the boulder. According to repeated geological investigations by China’s top experts, the stone and the characters were formed naturally from the dark-gray limestone around 270 million years ago.

The findings were sensational and reported by over a hundred media outlets across China, but as one would expect, all of them left out the character “perish” in their reports. However, anyone who has seen the stone in person or a photo of it can see the full message contained in the six characters.

“It’s true,” one of them told me. “I saw the six big characters on the stone, very clear, very big! What you told us is true!”

Now, most of my colleagues have quit the CCP organizations and six of them have been promoted to mid-level or higher management positions.

I feel really happy for my colleagues, who are enjoying good health and a successful career after they severed their ties with the CCP.

The devastating pandemic is still raging across the world, along with other disasters and misfortune. I hope more people will learn the truth and keep reciting the precious phrases “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” which has proven to have helped many people escape harm in difficult situations.
