(Minghui.org) I worked very hard for 16 straight years trying to maintain the household and make a living. My health was ruined as a result. I had mini-strokes and heart disease. I also suffered neck and back pain and lung problems. I often felt dizzy and vomited blood.
When I went to the hospital, the doctor was unwilling to prescribe medicine for me, and implied that I didn't have much time left. After I insisted, the doctor gave me some medicine and sent me home.
Desperate, I remembered a Falun Dafa practitioner in our village who told me that practicing Falun Dafa can help one stay fit and healthy. I really wanted to learn Falun Dafa.
With that thought, two Falun Dafa practitioners in our village visited me the next day. What a coincidence! They told me that they suddenly wanted to come teach me the Falun Dafa exercises.
On the first day, I was able to do the Falun standing stance for 30 minutes and meditated for another 30 minutes. I finished all five sets of exercises that day. The two practitioners were impressed. “You did so well, as if you learned Falun Dafa before.” Maybe that is what people meant about predestined relationship. I also received the precious book Zhuan Falun that night.
The practitioners came every day for a week to exercise with me. I stopped all my medicines on the third day.
I was delighted to find out that I could eat fruit again! I had been eating nothing but porridge for six years, as that was the only thing that my stomach could handle. A fellow practitioner encouraged me, “You are a Falun Dafa practitioner now, and you have nothing to worry about.” They were right. I no longer had any stomach pain or discomfort after eating fruit. I could handle all sorts of foods from that point on. It was just wonderful.
After just a few weeks of practice, my complexion improved. I was in good spirits and my energy improved greatly! I was able to work with my husband in the fields in the spring and did not feel tired!
Upon hearing that I’d gotten better, my neighbors came to see me. They were happy for me, “We support you. You should keep learning Falun Dafa and learn it well.”
One day, my middle sister called me, asking how I was doing. I replied that I was well. She did not believe me, thinking I was suicidal, as I had those thoughts in the past when I did not see any hope of getting well. She hurried in to see me. When she saw me, she hardly recognized me – I looked so well, so healthy!
“Your change is amazing! Simply incredible. What happened?”
I told her that I began to practice Falun Dafa. She was relieved, “Great, do it well, so we do not have to worry for you anymore.”
My husband had to work extra hours to pay for my medical expenses. We spent so much money on my treatment, without any improvement. Now I am healthy without spending a penny. Not only did we save money, but I am also able to work and contribute to the family financially. My husband is very grateful for Dafa’s saving grace.
My elder sister’s husband retired and had a stroke. I told him about Falun Dafa and asked him to recite the auspicious phrases, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
He immediately said out loud, “Falun Dafa is good! Just by seeing the changes in you, I believe Dafa is good.”
When I visited him again a month later, he has completely recovered and he continues to say the phrases daily.
Practicing Falun Dafa also helps me handle my family relationships better. I used to fight with my husband often. If he called me names, I would return the same. After I became a cultivator, I no longer do that.
My husband has three brothers. My mother-in-law lives with her youngest son. When he and his wife are busy, we often go there to take care of her. I cook for her and get her bed ready. She is grateful that I have always thought of her and take such good care of her. I told her that I now practice Falun Dafa and Dafa’s Master (Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa) teaches me to be a good person.
