I became a Falun Dafa practitioner in 2003, when I was at a low point of my life. I had married a man who was eight years older than I in 1982. He had many debts, a low income, and smoked and drank a lot. Life was very stressful!
When I was pregnant with our first child, he beat me to the ground, and I lost the baby. We fought over the smallest issues, which affected our family life. All the disharmony resulted in my coming down with severe heart problems, a brain aneurysm, and other illnesses. I became a financial burden to our family and felt that dying was better than living.
Benefiting from Dafa
I started to practice Dafa in 2003, and two months into my cultivation, I had returned to good health. I then disposed of all my medications!
My new outlook on life taught me to be tolerant, see the good side in people, and look within when encountering conflicts.
My family members witnessed the changes in me and supported my practicing Dafa.
My husband started Dafa cultivation in 2006. He quit smoking and drinking, and gave up his previous practice that he had joined 30 years ago. He turned from being grumpy into a good and caring husband. Dafa brought harmony to my family!
My husband’s colleagues witnessed that he had given up his bad habits, including smoking and drinking. So they understood that his Falun Dafa practice was a good thing.
Mother’s Hunchback Disappeared
My mother has been ill ever since I can remember. She could not work or tolerate cold water. When her gallstone illness recurred, the doctor said that there were stones in her bile and liver ducts. Since my mother had heart disease and was weak, the doctor said that surgery might shorten her life and told us to take her home.
Mother was a little over 60-years-old, but she looked like an 80-year-old person. She was very weak, lost her teeth, and had a hunchback.
I taught her the Dafa exercises in August 2003. She could not read, so she listened every day to the Fa teachings. Within six months, she recovered from all her illnesses, and her hunchback disappeared.
Mother asked me how she could repay Dafa for the benefits she and her family had received.
“We can only cultivate well,” I said. “We also tell people how much we benefited from Dafa, and how to be a good person. We should follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”
The people in the village witnessed my mother’s changes and now believe that Falun Dafa is good.
