FU Talisman 101
LING FU 靈符 – or Talismans as what most calls it by, is what we call the “language that communicates with the sky”. The sky for every lineage is different, just like the boss of every company is different. The FU itself is like a ticket, which allows us to request for help from the source that we connect to, which is our “sky”. The word LING for LING FU, is basically to be able to connect, and trigger a response, for the source to react and give help according to the requests.
In short, a FU is a ticket that submits to the source which we connect to, and ask for help. The power will be then bonded and contained to the FU, which we can deploy it by taping, carrying, burning, drinking, and such.
FU is often called FU LU or FU LOOK (cantonese) 符籙 meaning that the FU is in a record, the record of a lineage, for the power source to understand the “codes”. That’s right, you can’t just copy them off the book and expect it to work. In order for things to work, you need to be accepted as a disciple of the lineage, and being given the authority to use the FU, and now the FU will work when you use them accordingly. Records of FUs are like codes of a programming language, they do not share among other lineages, and so copying FUs off another lineage’s book isn’t going to work either. In fact, many scammers on the market are just purely buying FU books from other sects, copy them off and make money by selling these fake FUs on ebay, Esty, Amazon, and such. These FUs doesn’t work, because they are not even done by a legit disciple of a lineage, which connects to the source that understands the language of that FU. What’s even worse, is that the language is not even real, it could be just some made-up scribbles by someone – since there is no guarantee from the bookstore on the market…!
A real LING FU must be drawn by the one who is authorized by the source, with the special magical tools, such as the special brush, paper, ink, and so on. These are not ordinary tools, they are consecrated tools, like how special papers are used for making money. Having said that, any FU made by an ordinary person will not work, since they have no connections to any source of power, then it is like printing money at home with your ink jet printer.
To write FU, we must invite the powers from the source, and chick the tools that we use. CHICK 勅, means to bond in the power to the tools. Some people use the word consecrate, if it sounds more “fancy” to you… We keep it simple – just bond in the power to a subject, is chick. The brush, paper, ink, water, and many other tools involved in the FU writing process is chick’d at the altar to bond in the powers that they connects to. Then, with proper procedure, we start writing the FU, just like how words are being programmed one by one, strokes by strokes, injecting the “guts” into the lines as we write.
After the FU is written, there is also stamping work to be done, with the special stamp that marks the authority of the higher powers. Then, the FU is made… but not yet ready to be used.
The FU will also need to go through a CHICK FU ceremony, which requires us to fire up the altar, invite the power to come in, and bond in the power to the FU. This ceremony not only bonds in the power to the FU, but also submit the requests and ask for the approval of the FU too. If the FU fail to go through this process, then it is like a cheque submitted but bounced. Once it is approved, and ceremony is completed, then we will pack it up and ship them out to the person who requested the FU. Here is a Chick FU ceremony on our YouTube channel:
The FU of our lineage connects to our source, which we call Saam Law, and it is powerful! Yet, the source only help those who have heart, and is really seeking for help. If a person uses our FU with doubt and not fully trusting it, the heart they output will result in the amount of help they can get. Just like we say, don’t trust if you use, don’t use if you don’t trust. Same to the FU and magic too, because the energy in the FU can sense your heart, and if your heart is not there, it won’t help you.
