The Making Of Paper Soldiers (剪纸成兵)
Below magic will transform paper manikins into our physical
helpers. The original manuscript has it that once one has completed this
ritual, on a blow of breathe a paper manikin will transform into a physical
solder. But I would interpret this in another way: The paper solder will
indirectly bring the person an additional physically helper. So, if you feel
that you are the odd man’s out in your office; then this ritual will suit you
First one must prepare 7 pieces of colour paper each: white,
yellow, red, green, blue, purple and black. He/she would also need a piece of
granite to press onto the paper manikins, paper and pen.
When everything is readied, then the person should cut a
total of 49 paper manikins: 7 each for 7 colour papers about 7 inches tall.
After a paper manikin is completed, he/she should bow a breath of air onto the
manikin and recite the below mantra:
(With the spiritual
power of upmost Jade Purity, he who helps the endangered and the poor. I now
cut paper into a soldier. Three souls into left, seven ‘po’ (魄)
into right, hastily wake up as my will; so mote it be!)
After all of the manikins are completely cut out, they
should be pressed under a piece of granite. A piece of ‘seal talisman’ (the
left one) shall be used to seal the spirits of these paper manikins.
A further empowerment ritual should be carried out for 49
days. One should use cinnabar to draw the ‘conjuration talisman’ (the right
one) 49 pieces; one piece for one manikin. When the items are readied, the
magician should take a piece of manikin, recite above mantra 7 times and blow a
breath onto each manikin. All of the 49 pieces of manikins should be blessed
When all of the manikins are fully empowered, they are ready
to be deployed. When a person feels that he is being cornered in his office and
desperately needs a helping hand; then he/she can take one or seven pieces of
paper manikins, recite the below mantra:
(The emperor of subtle
state, I am watching over the spirits in my alchemy lab. After choosing the
armours, come and help me to exorcise evil and support the righteous. The
positive energy covers my body and stored in my dantian (丹田)
hence stunning all armies.)
After the ritual, rest assure that helps will be around the
corner; but he/she must embrace changes and all possibilities as the spirits
may perform anything to get the person out of troubles.
