I was distraught and unable to sleep one night. My husband and son were sleeping soundly. When they did not respond after I called out to them, I poured cold water all over them.
This happened, however, before I learned Falun Gong. I had strong attachments to fame, fortune, and jealousy back then. I had swollen legs and severe back pain and was only able to sleep for about an hour at a time in bed. Then I had to sleep sitting up the rest of the night. Due to insufficient sleep, I was very short tempered, which got worse over time.
At the end of 1996, I “happened” to meet a Falun Gong practitioner who told me about the practice. I went to the practice site the very next day. As I did the exercises, there was a warm feeling on my back, which felt very comfortable. My heart was filled with happiness. When I slightly open my eyes, the sky was almost orange. After we'd finished, my body became relaxed and all my symptoms had been alleviated. It was something I had never experienced before. I immediately bought all the Falun Gong books I could.
Later, my home became a group study site. I studied the Fa teachings and did the exercises every day. I looked to the teachings to guide my life and to become a good person. Instead of being cold and introverted, I became cheerful and outgoing. Moreover, all my illnesses were gone. My family also benefited tremendously from my practice of Falun Gong.
One morning when I woke up in 1998, my left eye itched severely. It was swollen to the size of an egg. My husband persuaded me to go to the hospital. Several experts said that my eye was rotting. They said that I’d come to the hospital too late and that immediate surgery was now required to remove my left eye. The doctor said that, if the surgery was successful, I would only see some light with my right eye, and, if the surgery failed, I would be completely blind.
While my husband was completing the admission procedures, I was overwhelmed with the thought of losing my eyes. But then I realized that I was a Falun Gong practitioner and should remain calm. Suddenly, I felt compelled to leave the hospital right away. I stood up and managed to push through the crowd. I trotted out of the hospital, found a taxi, and left for home.
I was not home for long when my husband returned. He tried to drag me back to the hospital. I desperately clung to the door and told him that I would rather die than return to the hospital. He called our relatives. Over 20 of them came to our home. They were shocked when they saw my eyes and found out about the diagnosis. They cried and encouraged me to go to the hospital for surgery.
I knew well in my heart that the hospital could not cure my eyes—only Falun Gong would be able to help. I had no other options. However, my husband still insisted that I go to the hospital for surgery.
“Falun Gong is purifying my body as I eliminate karma,” I said. “Please give me two days. I will study the Fa and do the exercises at home for two days. Then, if my eyes improve, we will not go to the hospital. If it does not change, I will go to the hospital.”
He agreed, saying, “And if your eyes can be cured by doing the exercises, I will practice Falun Gong, too.”
So I calmed down and read Zhuan Falun in tranquility. I could not open my left eye and could not see well with my right eye. I was in tears. Then I asked my niece to read to me. My niece read in tears. She read and cried, read and cried. I said, “You should not treat me this way, you should have faith that my eyes will recover; if you believe, then miracles will happen. You must support me and believe that this is the real truth of the universe.”
Then we both calmed down. I listened attentively, and suddenly I felt my eyeballs moving. I no longer felt sick. After everything quieted down during the evening, I felt like I had a lot to say to Master Li Hongzhi (the founder of Falun Gong). I put Zhuan Falun on the table and knelt down. “Master, please save me!” I said. “Please give me two eyes. I am only 43 years old. I still have a long way to go.” Then I started to meditate in the full lotus position. When I hurt, I recited to myself, “When it’s difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it’s impossible to do, you can do it.” (Zhuan Falun)
When I woke up the next morning, my mind was crystal clear. I could open my left eye slightly without tearing. I then went to the practice site to do the exercises. I felt as if I levitated up high when I was doing the first exercise. When I opened my eyes, I saw practitioners in neat rows. While I was holding the wheel on both sides of the second exercise, I felt someone holding my arms and correcting me. I thought it must be Master encouraging me.
Two weeks later, my eyes were completely recovered. My family and relatives all witnessed the miracle of Falun Gong. Many of them got Falun Gong books and started to practice.
But three weeks later, my left eye was red and swollen for over a week. It happened several times. My husband still wanted me to go to the hospital. I kept looking inward and found out that I was not considerate of my husband: I was stubborn and attached to myself, often insisting on my own way. Even if I was wrong, I would ask him to be the one to apologize. No loss, no gain! Once I came to understand this principle of the teachings, my husband no longer mentioned going to the hospital, and my eyes did not trouble me again.
On July 20, 1999, the CCP started the brutal persecution of Falun Gong. My husband gave fellow practitioners 20,000 yuan and supported our efforts to go to petition in Beijing. A group Fa-study was held in our house and there were many experience-sharing conferences in our house as well.
My husband stood guard outside whenever there was a conference. When the practitioners who were forced to flee their homes stayed in our house, my husband often treated them warmly without thinking of personal gain and loss.
My husband suffered from lower back pain. When it became severe, he could only stand for a few minutes. In 2010, the doctor recommended he have spinal surgery. Our son sought the experts from Beijing to treat him. My husband asked me to pack up his stuff to prepare for the surgery. I said, “I do not agree with the surgery. Can they guarantee success?”
My husband said nobody could guarantee it. I replied, “Falun Gong can guarantee that. You have witnessed the miracle that happened to me.”
Thinking that I meant that I did not want to take care of him, he rushed out in anger. I immediately sent righteous thoughts asking Master to help my husband. I knew he should not have the operation.
About two hours later, my husband came back with his bag. He said, “Did you send righteous thoughts for me?” He said the doctors had recommended a conservative treatment, which required high technology. If the surgery was unsuccessful, he would be paralyzed for life.
Then my husband started reading Zhuan Falun, one chapter a day. He also watched the Shen Yun Performing Arts DVDs and read other truth clarification materials. Sometimes, he did the exercises. Two weeks later, his lower back pain was cured without any medical treatment. Moreover, all his other illnesses were gone. He is now in perfect health. However, he has not started to seriously practice due to fear of the CCP’s brutal persecution.
