(Minghui.org) I suddenly fainted while I was doing housework on April 9, 2009. My family took me to the local hospital, but the medical staff refused to admit me. I was transferred to the Second Affiliated Hospital, the best in the area. I slipped into a coma and became blind. The doctor said I’d had a brain hemorrhage.

I woke up over a week later, but I continued lapsing into unconsciousness. I had an odd symptom during my waking moments—I moved around frantically, and no one could hold me down. I could not control myself. I had an abnormal sleep pattern, and I thought I was losing my mind. The doctor had no idea what was wrong.

The doctor planned to operate. As my family bathed me, I began to have heavy menstrual bleeding. I was 53 years old and had been menopausal for years. Having an operation during a menstrual cycle is risky, so the doctor decided to postpone the surgery and continue with more conservative treatment.

As I teetered between life and death, one of my two sisters-in-law came to the hospital and brought recordings of Master Li Hongzhi’s (the founder of Falun Dafa) lectures. She put the MP3 player next to my ear and had me listen to the lectures. She also told me, “Make sure you sincerely recite, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,’ and Master will help you.”

I felt much better after reciting the phrases many times. My sister-in-law said, “Dafa will save you. Since I’m a practitioner, you will benefit because you are my relative. It’s not a coincidence that you menstruated today. It might seem strange, but there is a reason for it. A major surgery costs at least 100,000 yuan. And maybe you’ll recover some other way. Falun Dafa is very powerful!”

I recited “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” every day. I wanted to listen to the lectures, but I fell asleep as soon as I did. My younger sister thought I was using them like a lullaby to help me sleep. My sister-in-law explained, “Master is adjusting her body and her mind.” She told us what Master said:

“A few of you might fall asleep during the class, only to wake up after I finish my talk. That happens because there was something wrong with your head, and it needed to be put right. You needed to be anesthetized so that you wouldn’t feel anything. Yet in some cases the faculty of hearing isn’t affected, and you won’t have missed a word even if you were sound asleep. Afterwards you will feel invigorated, and you might even go on for a couple of days without needing sleep. You might be coming here with any of various conditions. But whatever they may be, they all need to be dealt with since your whole body must be purified.” (The Second Talk, Zhuan Falun)

I listened to the lectures every day, and my body and mind kept improving. The medical staff thought I was recovering better than if I’d had the surgery. They all said that Dafa was amazing!

My experience helped more people understand that Falun Dafa is a good practice, and they condemned the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for persecuting practitioners.

I was discharged from the hospital two weeks later. My family and friends saw the extraordinary effect Dafa had on me. Consequently, both of my sisters and my other sister-in-law began to practice Falun Dafa.

I hereby pay my respects to Master Li: “Thank you for giving me a new life!” I gave myself the pen name Chen “Zaisheng,” which means Chen “Reborn.” I will make good use of my new life and tell people, “Falun Dafa is good!”
