(Minghui.org) I was diagnosed with severe uterine fibroids in 1994. I had an operation and the test results showed they were malignant. I endured chemotherapy but my condition did not improve, and I went from bad to worse. My belly and face swelled up, I could not straighten my back, and I was always out of breath. I had to take a break every few steps I took.
The doctors could not help me anymore and said, “Just go home and take care of yourself.”
I was only 50 at the time and had been given a “death sentence!” I was miserable and in pain.
Falun Dafa Helped Me Regain My Health
In the autumn of 1995, one of my brothers came to see me, very excited. He said, “I found a qigong book at a street bookstore. It’s called Zhuan Falun.” He told me that the book was so good that he was determined to stick with this practice and asked if I wanted to practice it, too. I asked him to get me a copy of the book as soon as he could. So he did.
After reading just a few pages of the book, I thought, “It would be wonderful if I could find someone to learn the exercises from.”
At the beginning of 1996, my daughter went to her aunt’s, where they were watching a video of Master Li, the author of Zhuan Falun, giving Fa lectures. My daughter called me and asked me if I would like to come over and watch, too. “Of course I would!” I said, and a minute later I was already on my way.
Her house was a few miles away but it didn’t take me long to get there. I was surprised that I didn’t feel short of breath or tired while I was walking. Everyone else was just as amazed to see me get there so quickly, and in such good shape.
They replayed the video for me from the beginning. As I watched and listened to Master lecture, I felt an inexplicable emotion and I felt like crying, but I held back my tears in front of so many people.
After watching the video, all my illness symptoms disappeared and I returned home like a brand new person.
I went to watch again the next day and the next—it took two and a half days for me to watch all the lectures. After that, I was completely free of the pain of my illness! I studied the Fa with fellow practitioners every day and experienced the brilliance of Falun Dafa.
As more and more people came to learn Falun Dafa, we soon ran out of copies of Zhuan Falun in our area. A fellow practitioner and I took the train to another town to get more books. We brought back two boxes of books, about 20 kilos a box. We each carried one on our backs and didn’t feel tired at all.
I am 80 years old now, and I still feel light and healthy. I cook three meals a day for the family. That would have been completely impossible in the past.
Dafa has not only purified my body and given me a second life but also purified my soul and helped me learn how to be a decent human being. I had a very bad temper in the past and resented everyone. I found fault with everyone, including my own children.
After I took up Falun Dafa, I learned to be considerate of others and tried to be a good and even better person by following Master’s teachings and the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
One day, I heard a neighbor say to my son-in-law, “Falun Gong is truly good. Your mother-in-law used to scold people so much in the past. She swore at people every day. But now I don’t hear any of that anymore.”
The Power of Righteous Thoughts
In July 1999, the former head of the communist regime, Jiang Zemin, began to suppress Falun Gong, jealous of its enormous popularity.
On September 4, 1999, my husband and I were at a gathering with 30 fellow practitioners to share our understanding about the situation when the police broke in. They took everyone except me and two other elderly female practitioners to the detention center.
The male detention was plagued with an epidemic of scabies. My husband was infected and passed it to me after he was released.
I had a terrible case of scabies, and my whole body festered. It itched so badly below my waist that I couldn’t even sit and had to kneel. My hands were covered with big pustules and were badly swollen, so I couldn’t even scratch where it itched. This tribulation lasted for more than five months.
In May, a fellow practitioner came to see me and told me that she was going to Beijing to validate the Fa. “I will go with you,” I said immediately.
“How can you go in your condition?” she said doubtfully.
“I can,” I said. “My feet are fine, so I will go to validate Dafa!” I made up my mind that I would go no matter what.
The day before our departure, I packed up and bought the ticket. By that evening, the swelling in my hands had gone down and I could clench my fists again. The day after we arrived in Beijing, all the pustules on my hands burst open when I took a shower in the evening.
When I woke up the next morning, I saw dry scabs all over my hands and arms. During the whole time I was in Beijing, I didn’t feel any pain or itchiness, and I could sit and walk like normal. In the evening after I took off my clothes, I peeled off the scabs.
In just four or five days, the scabies and even the scabs disappeared. My skin looked as good as it used to, without even a tiny scar. I knew that Master had once again purified my body and I had witnessed another miracle of Dafa!
Escaping a Life-Threatening Catastrophe with Faith in Master and Dafa
On New Year’s Day 2011, I went to pick up some truth-clarification materials from a fellow practitioner. As I was crossing the street and had almost reached the sidewalk, I heard a loud “bang” and felt as if I was flying. I realized that a car had hit me, and then I lost consciousnesses.
When I came to, I found myself lying on the ground. I thought: “I can stand up” and started to pick myself up. A woman driver in a car next to me came over and said, “Oh my goodness, you scared me to death!”
As it turned out, I was hit by a car and thrown several meters. I’d landed next to her car. She was terrified, thinking I might be dead.
The driver who hit me never got out of the car, probably because he was too scared. The person in the passenger seat got out and asked me how I was and if I needed to go to the hospital.
“I’m fine,” I said to him. “I’m a Falun Dafa practitioner, and my master protects me. I’m 71 years old this year. I don’t really know what happened just now, but you saw it all. Your car hit me and I landed some meters away. Can you imagine what would have happened to me if I was not practicing Falun Dafa?”
“Yes, yes, you’re right. It’s amazing, truly amazing!” he agreed and kept nodding.
I went on to tell him the truth about Dafa and helped him quit the CCP (Chinese Communist Party). I told him that, as a Dafa practitioner, I would not seek compensation, and let them go.
I had a blood blister the size of an egg on my arm, and my feet hurt when I walked. I went home after picking up the truth-clarification materials. As soon as I got home, I thanked Master for protecting me.
That night, my body started to ache, and the pain in my left ribs was so sharp that it felt like they were all broken. I clenched my teeth to bear it.
I couldn’t lie down, so I held my arms tight and threw myself on the bed. But then I found it hard to get up again due to the unbearable pain.
My family only knew that I’d been hit by a car, but they didn’t know how bad it was. I didn’t tell them for fear that they would be worried. I endured the enormous pain silently.
In spite of the pain, I kept up with Fa study and doing the exercises every day, as well as doing all the household chores, including laundry, cooking, mopping the floor, etc. Because of the pain in my ribs, I found it hard to keep my back straight, but in front of my family members, I tried to walk as normally as possible. After a month of studying the Fa and doing the exercises, I was completely back to normal.
I have had many other miraculous experiences in my Dafa cultivation. The above are just a few of them to validate the greatness of Falun Dafa and to express my enormous gratitude to Master for his compassionate salvation.
Master has extended my life and I’m determined to be more diligent in cultivation and in doing well the three things required of us, and save more sentient beings.
