My family members repeatedly witnessed the miracles of Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) over the past decade. I am sharing these stories to let more people know about Falun Gong. I dreamed that a middle-aged woman approached me and asked me to practice qigong in June 1999.
“What qigong?,” I asked.
“Pipa Gong,” she replied.
“What does it do? No ... ,” I said haltingly.
“What do you want to practice,” she asked.
I thought about it and said, “There seems to be a Falun Gong. I would like to try it” She pointed towards the people in front, “They are practicing Falun Gong. You go there.”
I went there to learn. While I was doing the Falun Standing Stance posture, someone pushed me out of the group. I turned around but found no one. I started to quarrel with that person, “Why did you push me? It was not easy for me to find Falun Gong. Now no one is around. How can I find them?” Then a tall man came and kindly asked me, “What's going on?” I told him what happened. “Follow me,” he said. It was an interesting dream even though I did not know about Falun Gong. I went back to sleep but was unable to rest. I woke up and went to the parks nearby to check out where people were doing morning exercises. While I was walking towards a park, I heard a voice say, “Wrong place.”
I stood there and wondered where to go. Then I heard music coming from the science and technology building. I followed the music and saw people lined up for the exercises and inquired. “We are practicing Falun Gong,” someone answered. I stayed to learn the exercises. They also happened to be watching Master Li Hongzhi's (the founder of Falun Gong) nine-session lecture series and asked me to join. When I watched the videos, I was astonished. The person in my dream who asked me to follow him was Master Li! I became very interested in Falun Gong.
I went on vacation in June 1999 and returned after July 20th. I had not learned all the four sets of the standing exercises nor the sitting meditation. During this period, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched a massive persecution against Falun Gong. I knew there was nothing wrong with Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, the principles of Falun Gong. Shouldn't we accord with these principles? The CCP said Falun Gong is not good. What was the truth?
I did not have Falun Gong books and did not know anything about the exercises . But I knew the sitting meditation involved crossing the legs. I kept trying to cross my legs, even though all I could do was to place one leg on top of the other. I could only practice two to three minutes by gripping my legs with my hands to prevent them from slipping out of position. Then a miracle happened while I was sitting crossed-leg: I felt some sensation in my back and neck. Whenever I stopped crossing my legs, it went away. I did not think about it much. Gradually, I was able to cross my legs longer. I then realized that my illnesses disappeared.
I had numerous ailments including rheumatism, cervical disease, uterine fibroids, bone hyperplasia, indigestion, and a heart arrhythmia. I used to go to the hospital for treatment before and took medicine. Nothing helped. By doing the crossed-leg exercise, all my illnesses disappeared. It was unbelievable, miraculous! I thought I would like to read the Dafa books and keep practicing Falun Gong. The persecution persisted. People were misled by the slanderous media and were forbidden from practicing Falun Gong in public. However, I came to know the goodness of Falun Gong.
My mother-in-law had severe hemorrhoids which resulted in a painful, bloated stomach. She went to see a doctor and was told that her condition was severe, and surgery was too risky. The only treatment was to apply external medicine. I changed her treatment dressing daily, but her condition did not improve. My husband knew Falun Gong was good. However, the CCP's brutal persecution terrified him. He did not want me to practice. But I was firm and resolute with both my husband and in-laws about practicing Falun Gong. I told them about my health recovery. “Falun Gong is good and hope you keep practicing. Your aunt practices Falun Gong. She is healthy now and does not need any medicine,” my mother-in-law announced one day.
She then packed up her things to go home after breakfast the next day. I asked her, “You have not recovered yet. Why are you leaving?” She said, “My illness was cured. Last night my illness disappeared. ” Miraculous! My mother-in-law just said that Master removed her illness! My mother is over 80-years-old. She had varicose veins and her legs were swollen. The doctor stated it was incurable. I told her to sincerely recite “Falun Gong is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She listened to me and did not spend a penny. Her legs are good now. She said, “Absolutely amazing! The doctor could not cure my illness. By reciting these words, I am well now. Thank you Master Li.”
My older sister had a thyroid tumor a few years ago. The tumor was about the size of an egg. The doctor called for an immediate surgery. Her husband was sick too. She wanted to delay the procedure. I advised her, “Do not have surgery. Sincerely recite Falun Gong is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She followed my advice every day and slept well. Then one day, she found the tumor was gone. She said excitedly, “Falun Gong is extraordinarily amazing. I want to learn it too!”
We both went to visit our mother. I had some fish and a fish bone dislodged in my throat. I had difficulty swallowing and spitting it out. I tried to swallow a steamed bun and drink vinegar, but it did not help. My mother suggested going to the hospital. Then I remembered and begged Master to help remove the fish bone. After a while, the bone was gone. I thanked Master in my heart. I told my sister that the bone was removed. She asked how. I told her Master did it. “Amazing!,” she exclaimed.
