(Minghui.org) I am a 68-year-old female Dafa practitioner who lives in the countryside. While raising awareness of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of Falun Gong, I have encountered many amazing things. Below are a few examples of what people experienced when they started to practice Falun Gong.

How My Son Overcomes Long-Time Fever

My son was attending a boarding high school in 2003 when he came down with a fever. Medicine didn't help, so the doctors started giving him intravenous injections. After two months, he saw no improvement in his symptoms, so my son was scared and asked his teacher's permission to return home. SARS had just broken out in China, so his teacher readily agreed.

My son continued to get intravenous drips at home. His fever persisted despite half a month of treatment. The doctor eventually refused to continue treating him and advised us to consult another hospital.

After seeing the doctor off, I moved the television and DVD player to my son’s room and started playing a video of Master’s Fa lectures in Guangzhou. I let him watch it alone. My son had been deeply indoctrinated by the CCP’s propaganda at school, and I knew anything I said to try to convince him would not work. I could only hope he would be willing to watch the videos himself.

My son was so entranced by the videos, he watched them for a long time and forgot about his illness. He eventually found me and exclaimed, “I think Master is a great Buddha.” We discovered that his fever had subsided, and his appetite returned. He told me that he could smell the fragrant scent of apples. He had recovered his sense of smell. My son had suffered from chronic rhinitis since he was three years old, and it robbed him of his sense of smell. Nothing had healed him, no matter how many doctors we consulted. But his illness was cured after watching Master’s lectures for half a day. My son was amazed. “It’s incredible, it’s amazing, it’s extraordinary. If I hadn’t experienced it personally, I would never have believed it. Master is truly a God, wielding supernatural abilities that cannot be explained by modern science. I want to learn the practice.”

My son became a Falun Dafa practitioner and experienced many miraculous things. While practicing the second exercise, Falun Standing Stance, he saw light shine from his hands. He saw Srivatsa symbols moving along the cloth of his pants. After putting Master's portrait in a picture frame, he saw colorful light emitting from the image. He spent seven minutes in the sight, reluctant to leave. 

Having received these signs of encouragement from Master, my son cultivated diligently on his own, trying his best to read Master's teaching, send righteous thoughts, and raise awareness of the persecution.

How My Relative Yanzi Healed Her Back

My relative Yanzi lives with her 70-year-old mother and teenage son. They were unable to afford their own home, so the family lived in a rental home. One day, Yanzi injured her back while lifting something heavy. She became confined to her bed at home, unable to move, and she couldn't afford the hefty hospital cost. 

She invited a folk therapist specializing in the treatment of spinal prolapse to her home, who spent months treating Yanzi in her home. Yanzi regained her ability to stand, but she remained unable to bend over.

I visited Yanzi and told her the truth behind the persecution of Dafa. I explained the miraculous healing powers Falun Gong has and advised her to quit the CCP to ensure her safety. I told her to recite the two phrases “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Yanzi was a young, educated person who used to hold an accounting job at her work unit, and she remained skeptical about my claims, despite my assurances.

Perhaps my sincerity made an impression on her, because one day on an impulse Yanzi suddenly visited my home. I believed that Master had arranged for her to come, so I took the opportunity to clarify the truth to her that night. I had more time to explain things in detail, and Yanzi was able to accept my words. She even asked me, “Is it really that amazing? Let me borrow a copy of the book to read.” Yanzi became so engrossed reading the book, she didn't surface until hours later. Afterward, she sat on the edge of the bed, hitching her legs up to tie her shoelaces, forgetting that this movement had been impossible for her. After realizing that she had regained the ability to move her waist freely, Yanzi was stunned. After eating dinner, she took the book home with her.

Two days later Yanzi visited me again, this time on her bicycle with her son seated behind her. She excitedly told me, “I threw away my entire stash of medicine, worth more than 1,000 yuan. Both my mother and I want to practice Falun Gong. Teach me the exercises!” I agreed.

After learning the exercises, Yanzi went home to meditate and saw a Falun appear on the wall. A few days later her rental home sprung a leak, and Yanzi was able to climb a ladder to repair the leak. She also helped a neighbor carry water. Her elderly mother recited the phrases “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and regained her health.

Yanzi found a job in a spa in the city. The job paid relatively well, so she was able to put her son through college, purchase a home, and contribute financially when her son started his own family. She has continued to walk steadily on her cultivation path.

How an Elderly and Illiterate Stroke Patient Recovers and Reads Dafa Books

In the spring of 2006, I spotted an old lady walking with great difficulty past my home. I invited her in and clarified the truth about Dafa to her. I also told her that miracles would happen if she recited the phrases “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” sincerely. The old lady wholeheartedly agreed.

After reciting the phrases for a few days, she told me she had regained movement in her toes. When I further explained the miraculous effects Falun Gong had in curing diseases, she told me, “I want to practice too,” but confessed that she was illiterate. I reassured her, “I went to school for only a few days. I barely recognize any words, and only knew how to write my own name. It doesn’t matter. You can listen to the audio recordings of Master’s lectures first.”

Over time, the old lady’s health improved, and she stopped taking medications. She learned the five exercises and rapidly improved her character. Seeing me reading Dafa books, she said, “If only I could read the books on my own.” I replied that Master would certainly help her: “Many illiterate Dafa cultivators gained the ability to read Dafa books.” I cited a few examples from the Minghui website. The old lady gained the confidence to attempt to read on her own.

According to conventional beliefs, it would be nearly impossible for an illiterate person in her 70s, who had suffered a severe stroke, to read a 300-page book. However, Master granted her wish and gave her the ability to read. Aside from reading Zhuan Falun, she also read articles from the Minghui.org website and Master's other teachings. She would consult me or her grandson when she encountered unknown words. The old lady began to read Dafa books on her own and even accompanied her grandson when he was admitted to a distant high school a few years later.

There are many more examples, which I hope to share later. These magnificent, supernormal abilities from Dafa can manifest within our lives, as long as Dafa practitioners cultivate diligently.
