(Minghui.org) I am 53 years old, and I have been practicing Falun Dafa since 2005. I noticed I was having trouble speaking on June 18, 2023. The next day I couldn't use one of my legs. My family took me to the hospital, and the doctor said that I’d had a stroke. After a few days of treatment my condition worsened. My mouth was crooked, my speech was slurred, and the right side of my body was weak.

I told my family that the longer I stayed in the hospital, the worse the outcome would be. I wanted to go home to study the Fa and do the exercises.

My family has a good understanding of Dafa, so they agreed to take me home. I immediately began to do the exercises as usual, studied the teachings, and sent forth righteous thoughts.

My condition stabilized, but the improvement was slow. I was anxious and thought about trying the physical therapy I’d learned at the hospital. But then I felt Master was reminding me to “do the exercises more.”

From that day on, I did the first, third, and fourth exercises three times a day and the one-hour standing stance twice a day. I still meditated as usual. After a few days, I was able to straighten my arm and make a fist, my face was back to normal, and my speech was clear again!

During the next month and a half, fellow practitioners came to study the Fa and send forth righteous thoughts with me. I studied attentively, copied the teachings by hand, and had faith in Master and the Fa.

Two months after the incident, I had recovered completely. I am deeply grateful to Master for his compassionate protection.

Now I do the exercises, study the teachings, send righteous thoughts, and clarify the truth about Dafa every day. I will keep up my cultivation to repay Master for his saving grace.
