[Pureinsight.org] My name is Christine. I am a 38-year-old research scientist who has been practicing Falun Dafa since January 5, 2004. In the short amount of time that I have been practicing, Falun Dafa has truly saved my life. I wish to share my experiences with you; but I feel that before I can do this I need to say that all of the miraculous things that are happening to me are happening because of the Dafa and not because of anything I can do by myself.
When I first heard of Falun Dafa I had been plagued by different illnesses since 1999. I had been searching for ways to improve my failing health, and was turning more and more to oriental medicine. I had been receiving acupuncture for several months, which had improved my health a bit. Then I started a new job where a group of Falun Dafa practitioners shared their experiences with me as well as their knowledge of Dafa. When I decided that I wanted to practice, they brought me books and videos and showed me how to do the exercises. Prior to practicing I had been diagnosed with urinary retention, chronic bladder cystitis, migraine headaches, acid reflux disease, clinical depression, premature menopause, seizures, osteopenia, allergies, rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis. My daily medications included Hytrin, Macrodantin, Vioxx, Topamax, Midrin, Migranal, Protonix, Zoloft, Estrace, Prometrium, Phosomax, Zyrtec, antigen therapy and Metrogel. Every time my physicians would get a health problem "under control" with medication, a new, worse health problem would arise requiring even more drugs. I felt like I was dying.
I began reading the Falun Dafa books on December 18, 2003. During the first week of the reading I forgot to take my Macrodantin, Hytrin, Vioxx and Phosomax over a period of a week. The following week, I forgot to give myself my antigen shots. By December 31, 2003 I realized that I had been forgetting to take these medications, and that I felt better. During this period of time, I also was able to see and feel the Falun rotating as well as being able to see and feel things that I previously could not. All of the things that I was able to see emphasized to me that I was following the right path by choosing to practice Dafa.
Once I began doing the exercises, my ability to see and hear things became stronger. I could see Fashen and a cute little baby coming out of the Lotus flower picture. I could also see demons, and the karmic blackness that I carry. And I could hear nature talking to me from all around?I could feel if plants were happy or sad, and also how angry the earth is with the invasion of big machines, industry and pollution. I began having dreams in which demons would tempt me to follow them, or would try to torture me into submission, and only when these demons were told, "I am a Falun Dafa practitioner" did they leave me alone. I also began having dreams of events that had not yet happened. As a small child I had these dreams and had blocked them for years because they frightened me, but they returned. I also had dreams in which the vital importance of practicing Falun Dafa and of trying to heal the world and mankind through Fa-rectification were made clear. I realized on January 17 that I had not been taking my Topamax, Midrin, Migranal or Protonix. I got scared that my diseases would come back, so I took my Topamax on January 20 and 21. I felt horrible, like I had a poison leaking out of my pores. I did not take the Yopamax again, and on January 22 I discontinued all of my other medications as well.
Discontinuing my medications was like being awakened from a nightmare in which I had been dying. My body began to feel truly alive for the first time in years! I could get up in the morning with energy, and go home in the evening knowing I had done good work, and could be a good wife. My performance at work was greatly enhanced. I grasped concepts I would have never understood before. The way in which I performed my research experiments changed completely as well: in performing experiments I felt like I had an inner voice guiding me, and rather than ignoring it I followed its advice. Experiments and procedures that I had never performed before became like second nature to me. I was suddenly able to perform them, altering the established protocols to follow the advice of the wise voice that seemed to guide me. The results that I obtained from these new experiments were even better than could have been expected from the old protocols. It was as if my mind had been asleep for a very long time, and I woke up able to think and do experiments using my mind and my newly obtained wisdom in partnership. I just suddenly knew how to do things, and my boss and I agree that it is nothing less than a miracle to suddenly have this wisdom. All of this is thanks to Dafa.
Doing the exercises after quitting the medications became a bit easier? I no longer vomited and had diarrhea after the exercises every morning. Although the exercises are still very difficult (physically they require great effort for me), what they give me cannot be expressed adequately in words. My body and my soul are alive! I am healthy, and I am a better human being. I am able to be truthful, compassionate and tolerant in all my interactions with people and with the world. This Dafa has truly saved my life and given it meaning. I am so grateful to Master Li for allowing me to practice and for giving us Dafa. I am also grateful to you for letting me share the miracles Dafa has worked in my life with you.
