Terminal Illness Healed after Returning to Dafa

May 29, 2022 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in China

(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997 and was a civil servant before I retired. Dafa and Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, gave me a second life.

Practicing Dafa Improved My Physical and Mental Health

Before practicing Falun Dafa, I had been plagued with ailments for a long time: my stomach was bloated; my menstrual periods lasted a full week with heavy bleeding, and I also had shingles, which was very painful. I went to the hospital frequently.

In 1997, I had the privilege of learning Falun Dafa. After that, I lived in strict accordance with Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. As I continued to practice Dafa, my state of mind and body changed dramatically, and all my illnesses were cured.

As my body got better, my mental wellbeing also improved. The sickly me was no more. The long-term patient became healthy, active, and energetic. I could be busy all day without feeling tired. Food tasted much better. I was at ease and my body felt light.

Before I retired, I was a key employee where I worked. I took personal gains and losses lightly. One year, we had to choose one person out of over 30 in my office to be the chief staff member, so we voted by secret ballot and I won. One of my coworkers was annoyed that she wasn’t chosen. I could not bear to see her displeased, so I told our manager to give her the position. He said, “How can you be so stupid? Everyone sees how much you do. It is obvious to all.” They still ended up giving the position to me.

There was an old county Party secretary to whom I often told the facts about Dafa. He saw with his own eyes my steady positive mental state for decades, witnessed the miracle of Dafa, and in his heart he understood that Falun Dafa is good.

Terminally Ill after Turning Away from Dafa

On July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party led by Jiang Zemin began to persecute Falun Dafa, and all media outlets across the country slandered the practice to justify the persecution.

That night, several other practitioners and I were detained at the police station and were forced to have our pictures taken. The next morning they did not release us, so I called my workplace, and my boss sent someone to take us back. 

In the following days, I was constantly harassed and threatened, and my home was searched. Faced with such a horrible government, I was afraid. To keep my job and live in peace, I gave up Dafa. After a while, the health problems I had before came back: my stomach began to swell again, and I ached all over and was weak.

In 2002, after I hadn’t practiced for over a year, I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. After my uterus and lymph nodes were removed, I was in pain and so weak I was bedridden. Even in the summer, I had to wear a cotton-lined top and pants—and a hat.

I was that way for more than a year, living a life that was worse than death while suffering both physical pain and mental anguish.

Experiencing the Miracle of Dafa Again

I was desperate, and compassionate Master did not give up on me. A fellow practitioner found me and persuaded to return to cultivation. 

After the operation, I was not able to sit in the lotus position. If I did, my abdomen would hurt. I told her I couldn’t do it. She encouraged me and said, “If you just add one minute a day, you will be able to cross your legs for five minutes in five days.”

With Master’s blessing and that practitioner’s encouragement and help, I finally overcame the pain. I could sit in the lotus position again to do the meditation exercise. From then on I did the exercises and read Dafa books every day. My health gradually improved. In less than two months, I’d recovered completely.

Once again, the miraculous power of Dafa was shown to me. I thank Master and Dafa from the bottom of my heart, because it is Dafa and Master who gave me a second life.

Negating Persecution by the 610 Office Head

Before one Chinese New Year, I went out of town to deliver some goods to a friend. When I got there, my son and daughter-in-law called me in a panic, asking where I was, because the new people in charge where I worked wanted to see me. I rushed back to the office and met them. I had already clarified the facts about Dafa to them, so they usually treated me very well. During our conversation, the head of the 610 Office came in, and I realized that he was behind it.

I clarified the facts about Dafa to him and then said, “If you threaten my family again or something happens to them, you will have to answer to me. Also, I heard that you are critical of how well I am paid. I work hard and I am paid what I deserve.”

After that, whenever I saw the 610 Office head again, he always greeted me warmly, shook my hand, and commented on my good health.

Working with Fellow Practitioners to Clarify the Facts

For more than ten years, I have been going to the countryside with fellow practitioners to distribute informational materials about Dafa. Two or three days before we go, we send righteous thoughts to clear evil interference from other dimensions so that people are more willing to accept our materials.

During farming season, we go to the fields to distribute the materials. Many villagers are eager to get them. Once, a villager said, “I have been looking for you people for a long time. Many of us here want your materials.” When we saw how much people were longing to find out the truth, our fatigue and suffering vanished, because we were doing this to clear up their misconceptions and learn the truth.

When the local fairs were held, we would go to the markets to distribute materials, clarify the facts about Falun Dafa, and encourage people to quit the CCP. We looked up the dates of the fairs in all the towns and visited each one.

One time we lacked righteous thoughts and were struck by fear when we saw the crowds. 

I suddenly remembered Master’s words:

“Should you have fear, it will seize upon youIf thoughts are righteous, evil will collapse...”(“What’s to Fear?” Hong Yin Volume II

My righteous thoughts suddenly arose, and the fear disappeared. In a short time, I distributed dozens of the DVDs I had and people were asking for more. 

Sometimes we went door to door in the countryside to distribute keepsakes and encourage people to quit the CCP. In the city, we usually went out for two hours a day to make truth-clarification phone calls. To keep the police from tracking us down, we would make the calls as we walked, whatever the weather.

I am 76 years old now, but my hair is still black and shiny, with only a few gray hairs. I walk with great energy and am happy all day long. With a rosy complexion, I do not look my age at all. Colleagues who haven’t seen me for years are amazed and ask me how I’ve stayed so healthy. I say, “The secret to my health is practicing Falun Dafa.”

On the path of cultivation, I have been more proactive in doing things to clarify facts about Dafa at all times, listening to Master’s words, and staying diligent on the path to Divinity. Thank you, Master.
