My Family Is Blessed
(Minghui.org) My mother started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998. I started about three years ago. Almost everyone in our family has benefited from Falun Dafa, either directly or indirectly. I would like to tell how we regained our health and have met with good fortune.
Dying Mother Recovered
My mother had suffered from poor health ever since I could remember. She had blurred vision, numbness on one side of her body, an ulcer, and arthritis. She always seemed to be in pain.
I remember keeping a nightlight on next to me. If I didn't hear her moaning at night, I would put my hand under her nose and make sure she was still breathing. Years of medication did not help.
She heard that Falun Dafa could cure illness, so she tried it and soon realized that it was better than any medicine she had ever taken. One time, as she was sitting in meditation, she felt someone pat her head. When she opened her eyes, everything was crystal clear. She burst into tears because her world had been a blur for so long.
After she regained her health, she was able to do all the housework and even help me take care of my two children. Falun Dafa also improved her character and temper. She could calmly resolve family conflicts by looking within for shortcomings. Our family was happy again.
Kidney Stone Passes After Reciting “Falun Dafa Is Good”
Three years ago, I was in excruciating pain from kidney stones. My mother told me to recite “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” over and over. I decided to give it a try.
When I got to the hospital, the ultrasound showed a large kidney stone, and the doctor said I would need surgery to have it removed. After I went to the restroom, they re-examined me, and the kidney stone had disappeared!
One doctor said I had passed the stone. Another one looked at my ultrasound and said, “That's a miracle. I have been a doctor for over a dozen years and have never seen such a large kidney stone just disappear. Congratulations!”
After that experience, I started practicing Falun Dafa.
Falun Dafa Prolongs Grandma's Life
My grandmother started practicing Falun Dafa when she was 73. Back then, she was diagnosed with late stage rectal cancer. However, the Communist Party's persecution of Dafa started soon after, and she gave up the practice due to fear. However, she protected other Falun Dafa practitioners at a critical moment.
Now, she is 89 and still healthy. We believe it is because of her good deed.
My 7-Year-Old Daughter
Until she was 4, my daughter was sickly. When she had a fever, she would faint or speak nonsense. When my husband took my daughter to the hospital for an injection, my daughter never cried, but her face would quickly turn blue.
She begged her grandfather, “Help me! I don't want a shot! Grandpa, help me!” Her grandfather would then let her skip the injection and take her home. My husband couldn’t do anything about it.
When she got home, I would play audio lectures given by the founder of Falun Dafa for her. She usually recovered very quickly. After many similar experiences, my husband discovered this secret. He now plays the lectures for my daughter himself.
Whenever she and her older brother starts to fight over something, she always concedes, so there is harmony and peace in our family. Even the grownups recognize that one need not fight back when being bullied.
Changes in My Son
At 16 years old, my son had bad manners and used profanity like many children his age. His grades were not good, either. But the more I reproached him, the worse he got. When his grandmother said he spent too much time on his cellphone, he pushed her aside. He even hit me with a slipper. I felt I couldn’t teach him anything and was very sad.
In a dream one night, I was in a class where the teacher was explaining the Chinese character that makes up the word “chatter.” She said, “In Chinese, part of the character means ‘working hard,’ and the other part means ‘mouth.’ The part that means ‘mouth’ shows words coming out of a mouth like knives, poking here and stabbing there.”
Then, I saw myself criticizing others in front of a classroom full of children. But I was dressed in pajamas, sat sideways, and leaned on a chair. Although the children stared at me in surprise, they all sat up straight in their seats. I was so embarrassed.
Then, I saw the teacher write the characters for “exhort.” She said that if we want children to listen to their parents, every sentence must be in accordance with Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. “As a parent, you must dress and behave properly and kindly. The child’s attitude will then naturally be correct. When you respect him, he would open his heart to you,” she said. “Compassion and dignity go hand and hand. You have the power to control, change, and harmonize everything. Rectify yourself first!”
After that dream, I started to pay attention to my own behavior and attitude. To my surprise, my son appeared to change overnight. He became more polite and started paying attention to his studies. He ended up getting into a very good high school.
My Husband's Family
My husband served in the military for over a decade and had fully absorbed the atheistic notions promoted by the Communist Party. But after he got to know some Falun Dafa practitioners, he became very supportive of us. He helped practitioners who were persecuted and their families. He also told his co-workers about how wonderful Falun Dafa is.
I often visit and take care of his parents. I told my mother-in-law about Falun Dafa and asked her to recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She told other family members, “This daughter-in-law is as good as a daughter!” That made my brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law very happy. They also recognize the goodness of Falun Dafa.
