(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Dafa in 2016. Over the past few years, my body and outlook on life have undergone earthshaking changes. My psoriasis was cured by practicing Dafa. Besides studying the Fa teachings and doing the exercises, I also recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” whenever I have time and can sense every cell in my body resonating.

I was running a business, and life was good. Just as business started to boom, I came down with psoriasis. It was really bad, covering my body, especially the joints and skin folds. There were spots of blood all over my clothes and quilts. Skin flakes covered the bed and floor in the morning. I used countless different kinds of medicines, both by mouth and externally, but to no avail.

When the psoriasis was severe, I had to take six or seven baths a day to relieve the itching. Later, when the itching intensified, I washed it with salt and an antiseptic water mixture and also tried every other method I could think of. In the end, I even tried folk remedies, but they didn’t work either. The picture only shows the skin on my arms, but psoriasis also covered my head and other areas of my body. It was horrifying.

My mother-in-law began practicing Falun Dafa before 1999. She is very healthy and is never ill. She advised me to practice, too, but I hesitated. I was afraid that if I didn’t drink and smoke, it would be inconvenient for me to entertain my business clients.

Ultimately, the misery was beyond words. I used an antiseptic solution to wash my body and hair. I had generalized edema and pain, and my hair was sticky and thinning; I was desperate. I finally listened to my mother-in-law and began practicing Falun Dafa.

I began with meditation, initially 10 minutes, then 20 minutes, and a few days later, 40 minutes. The pain in my legs was intense, but I persevered—sweat ran down my face. But I felt so much better physically. When I began to do the standing exercises, I felt cold energy coming out of my neck. A month later, I couldn’t feel anymore cold energy leaving my body, and I realized that Master had pushed the unhealthy things out of me. The most amazing thing was that my psoriasis was gone!

After I recovered, I gradually slacked off in my cultivation, and soon after that, my psoriasis flared up again. I did not realize at the time that cultivation was not just doing the exercises: I had to study the Fa and behave according to the teachings. I could not just pursue Dafa’s healing benefits—I needed to change from within.

I began studying the teachings and copying them by hand. I understood the answers to many problems that I couldn’t solve before. It turns out that, because people are clinging to so many things, they live tiresome lives. I was the same, fighting and struggling for fame, profit, and power. I wanted to follow Master’s teachings and let go of the mindset of fighting and competitiveness, care less for profit and fame, and improve my moral character to be a truly good person. Cultivation is not child’s play, and I had to take it seriously.

At that time, because of the Chinese Communist Party’s policies, my business lost a few million. Initially, I was pretty angry, but when I thought about myself as a cultivator, I let go of all the anger in my heart. Moreover, the losses were recovered in another business venture within a few months. In the past, I would have been so angry that my psoriasis would get worse. But now that I am a Dafa disciple, I remained calm and my psoriasis didn’t flare up.

I will work hard on cultivating my mindset forevermore. Dafa is the most precious thing in the world. I have found the meaning of human life. People do not live for the sake of living but should have nobler and higher pursuits.

My heart has changed, and it is all because of the power of the Fa. I also realized that cultivation is serious. I have been copying the Fa for five years and I’ve never stopped doing the exercises daily. I feel so much healthier, and my psoriasis is hardly detectable.

The psoriasis is almost gone now.

There is a process for improving one’s xinxing, especially when dealing with loved ones, and one should look more at one’s own shortcomings. I used to argue and quarrel with my family, but now I practice forbearance, and my family is much more harmonious.

When I deal with everyday people, if I were to compete and fight like them, my xinxing would fall and my psoriasis would return. I pay attention to looking at my shortcomings, hold myself to the standards of the Fa, and keep a calm and peaceful mindset. My skin condition is a thing of the past.
