(Minghui.org) I’m 68 years old and I’ve practiced Falun Dafa for six years. I’d like to tell you how I gained a new lease on life after taking up the practice.

I suffered from many ailments. Due to migraine headachess, I always felt there was a thick “hat” on top of my head. My stomach always felt bloated, and I had heart disease. The worst, however, was bronchial asthma, which led to emphysema. I coughed all year round. Whenever I had an attack, I had difficulty breathing. Only those who suffer from chronic serious health problems can understand how it feels to be tortured by illnesses. No hospital could help me.

In the depths of despair, I suddenly thought of Falun Dafa. Despite the persecution, I knew many practitioners continued to practice—and they were healthy. They could even tell people the facts about Falun Dafa. That was definitely not easy. I felt I should give it a try, so in 2017, I decided to practice.

I knew about Dafa for more than 20 years. My older sister started practicing before 1999 and once told me that every word in the Dafa books glittered. She also saw the Falun emblem in different colors. I didn’t believe any of this. It was only when my incurable health issues tortured me beyond my endurance that I thought of practicing.

Compassionate Master didn’t give up on me and continued to care for me. When I picked up the book Zhuan Falun to read and do the exercises, I didn’t see the words in the book glitter or the Falun emblem change colors. But I could feel and hear Falun rotating throughout my body! Nevertheless, I didn’t really believe it at first because I’d been so thoroughly indoctrinated by atheism. Not long after I started to practice, however, amazing things started happening to me, and I was convinced.

When I did the exercises on the third day, I felt as if I were stepping on “fiery wheels.” My legs were hot and I couldn’t bear it. I shouted, “Master, could you remove the fiery wheels for me?” In an instant, the “fiery wheels” disappeared and my legs were no longer hot.

My exercise movements were not accurate at first. I saw Master’s law body Fashen beside me. I quickly realized that I had to correct my posture.

I couldn’t hold my head up due to the “thick hat” from the migraines, but in a few days, that feeling suddenly disappeared and my stomach no longer felt bloated. I felt energized and my confidence in doing the practice grew. I also realized that I had truly obtained the Fa.

Master cleansed my body several times after I started practicing, and sometimes I could see it happening. Several years ago, I fell down and hurt my ribs. After doing the exercises, I saw Master use a big hand to push on my ribs three times, and they stopped hurting. Once in a dream, I saw two divine beings who were so tall that I couldn’t see their heads or their feet, as they worked on me. As their hands went into my stomach to remove the problem, I felt a sharp pain. They took it out, and I was instantly cured. Another time, I dreamed that doctors and nurses were operating on me. After I woke up, the problems I’d had with my stomach and intestines were gone. I know that Master showed me these things to encourage me.

I used to have serious problems with my lungs and trachea. As I was doing the exercises, I saw Master twisting my lungs like wringing out a towel before smoothing it out. That cured my emphysema. Master straightened my trachea like straightening out a rope, and then my trachea was fine. Having experienced these miracles, I know that I must cultivate to the end and never give up no matter what happens.

Strengthening Righteous Thoughts and Passing Tribulations

I once encountered a very difficult karma elimination test. I suddenly started to cough very badly—it was like I was having an asthma attack. I couldn’t sit or lie down. I couldn’t sleep and often coughed up blood. I felt I couldn’t take it anymore and wanted to give up. I said, “I’m sorry, Master. I really can’t take it anymore. I can’t cultivate. I want to die.” When I had this thought, I saw Master’s law body carrying a baby and I understood that Master was encouraging me, telling me that if I could persevere, I would have cherubs. With that encouragement, I held on and finally overcame the test. Since then, no matter how unwell I feel when eliminating karma, I continue to study the Fa and do the exercises. I leave everything to Master to decide and just continue to work on improving my character.

In 2020, I dreamed that there were three big mountains on the horizon and a tall stone wall blocking my way. I felt this meant there would be tests and that I would be able to overcome them. After I woke up, I thought, “No matter what kind of test, I will get through it! I have Master and the Fa. I’m not afraid of anything. I will continue to have righteous thoughts and not be moved.”

The tests came not long after. I was meditating when I saw Master’s law body folding small strips of bark into eight or nine triangular shapes, and putting them on my chest. I didn’t understand what they were and thought they must be bad things. I shouted to Master that I didn’t want them. They disappeared instantly. After meditating, I couldn’t move and had no strength. I then started to cough, and my heart felt uncomfortable. I knew that I was eliminating karma and I had to overcome it—like the three mountains and stone wall.

A few days later I encountered something else. Every night after 5 p.m., the Falun would rotate behind my back and in my internal organs. They started out rotating slowly, but over the course of a week, they rotated faster and faster with each passing day until I couldn’t stand up. Even if I was lying down, I couldn’t take it and shouted for Master to save me. I then felt Master push the Falun to spin a few more times at an ever faster pace until I coughed out a few mouthfuls of phlegm. I recovered.

On another occasion, I dreamed that Master took out what looked like a bunch of yellow elephant grass from my lungs. A young man said, “I’m showing this to you.” Instantly, I felt very relaxed and happy, something that I never felt before. I was so happy that I shouted out loud. I understood that my trachea and lungs had been so damaged by karma that they could no longer function normally. Master installed three triangle-looking things to open up the blocked areas of my trachea, lungs, and even heart blood vessels so that the Falun could fix them. After repairing them, these triangular things were removed. I could feel that I completely recovered.

Elements of Communism Make Trouble for Me

Not long after I started cultivating, my daughter had a baby and she wanted me to help her look after it. As a mother, this was my responsibility and I couldn’t shirk it. But as a cultivator, I had to study the Fa and do the exercises no matter where I was. I had to ensure a cultivation environment for myself. I told my daughter, “I can look after your child because Falun Dafa has given me a healthy body. But I must continue to do the exercises and study the Fa while I’m there. If you and your husband do not support me or are unhappy, I will not come.” Having witnessed the benefits of Falun Dafa, my daughter and her husband agreed.

When I first got to her house, I encountered some interference when I did the exercises. Every time I sat on the bed to meditate, I felt animals and worms crawling on the bed and me. This happened a few times and I didn’t know what was going on. Once, I felt three things climbing up me and one of them ended up on my back. I was startled and thought, “There must be bad things in this room.” I searched the room and found three copies of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) bylaws. Both my daughter and her husband are CCP members, as is my daughter’s father-in-law. I could feel that whatever was on my back had something to do with those things. I got rid of all of them.

After that, I was still interfered with. Many bad things were crawling on the bed and interfering with my doing the exercises and studying the Fa. I thought there must still be bad things in the room. I searched it carefully and found six books with the Party bylaws in them in my daughter’s drawer. These things and the elements of communism behind them were interfering with me. If I didn’t get rid of them, they would not only interfere with me but also harm my family. After I removed them the interference stopped.

I had the same dream twice. I dreamed that there was something like a big diamond hitting the eaves of the house. I thought that there could still be Party things in the house and searched again. I found my son-in-law’s cap with the CCP emblem on it. I didn’t remove the emblem when I first found it and just put it back. When I had the same dream again, I decided to remove it. There was no more interference after that.

After I cleaned up those things from my daughter’s house, I told the other practitioners and they advised me to send forth righteous thoughts to remove the interference in other dimensions since sending righteous thoughts can eliminate evil.

I have been practicing for six years now and, amazingly, have a healthy body. Like other practitioners, I became a healthy and peaceful person. I sometimes dream of magnificent archways, immortals and celestial beings, beautiful peonies and lotus flowers surrounding me, and a big red sign indicating that I obtained the Fa.

Having gotten rid of pain and suffering through practicing Dafa, I hope that people will not be deceived by the Party and can remember and understand that “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” because reciting these words can bring blessings.
