Taoist 7 Steps Exorcism Method (七步驱鬼法)

She gave me a creepy smile from the mirror...

The Taoist 7 steps exorcism method is one of the most powerful exorcism methods available out there to exorcise any spirit out from a place. It is not easy to perform this ritual as the magician must be powerful enough to control the spirit he or she wishes to cast out. Furthermore, this 7-step method is a very rude way of saying to the spirit to go to hell with one-way ticket.

I have only performed this ritual once, in Taiping.

For those folks who know Taiping quite well, they must know that there is a market place where people congregated to bet on rain falls (赌雨).  On both sides of the market there were and there still are rows of double story pre-war buildings.
My friend's face looked very dim and her eyes look tired… there must be something troubling her.
She would comb her hair repeatedly alone in front of her makeup table in the dark. At times she would sing and smile at the mirror. When I asked, she would ignored my queries and her only reply was a cold smile that sent shivrs down my spine!
I looked at my watch and it was around 2pm, so I figured that it will be better to visit after nightfall. I will need to make some preparations before I go for my own safety.
8pm. I was at the doorstep, though the temperature was pretty warm, there was a sense of chillness that came out from the apartment.
SHE was sitting in front of her mirror combing her hair. She looked skinnier and instead of greeting us, she continued to do what she liked best while her eyes veered at us from the reflection with a very strange smile that somehow showed her hostility.
She was possessed.  I drew seven small circles on the floor with the final circle facing the main door. After that I burned a piece of joss stick and started to chant while stepping on the first circle…
As I chanted, the atmospheric pressure in the place suddenly increased. For every step forward, the pressure increased still until I stepped onto the last circle where the room was pressurized to the max. At this point, she collapsed on to the floor and I could not breathe…
Finally I stomped my right foot, broke the joss stick, pointed to the main door and shouted: “Get out!”
At this point, the door suddenly slammed opened, a gust of wind rushed out of the house and I was thrown about 10 feet back with my back slammed heavily onto a wall as if a kite that has lost its string.
Within seconds, the pressure inside the room was gone. She laid fainted face down on the makeup table.  She woke up and she has no recollection of what so ever of her experience.
I won’t want to engage in anything similar anymore. That was the most horrible experience I had ever experiences as the power and the danger were so real and powerful!

Chinese Lantern Festival a.k.a. Yuan-Xiao Festival is on the 15th day of the first lunar month in the Chinese calendar. The Chinese Lantern Festival of 2018 falls on March 2, 2018, Friday, in China.
The first day of the first lunar month is the Chinese New Year Day. Chinese celebrate Chinese New Year Festival for 15 days. The Lantern Festival is the last day of Chinese New Year festival. 2018 is the Year of the Dog. The theme of Chinese Lantern Festival will be related to Dog.
The Lantern Festival is a traditional Chinese festival since Han Han Dynasty Dynasty more than 2000 years ago. In the early Tan Tang Dynasty (618-907AD), it was called the Shan-Yuan UpperDollar Festival, because of Taoism. in the late Tan Dynasty, it was called the Yuan-Xiao Yuan-Xiao Festival. It was called Lantern Night in the Sun Sung Dynasty Dynasty (960-1297 A.D.). The Lantern Festival was used in Ching Ching DynastyDynasty (1644-1911 AD).
According to Taoism, Shan-Yuan Upper PeriodDollar (first period of the year) Festival is the birthday of the Heaven Officer who blesses human luck. On the 15th lunar day of 7th lunar month is Chung-Yuan MiddleDollar(middle period of the year) Festival, which is the birthday of the Hell Officer who has right to pardon ghosts. On this day, all the ghosts can leave hell to human world for food. So the 7th lunar month is called Ghost Month. Many Chinese won't get married in this month. The 15th lunar day of 10th lunar month is Xia-Yaun lowerDollar (last period of the year) Festival. This day is the birthday of the Water Officerwho can rescue people in trouble. 
On the 15th lunar day of the year, some Chinese families worship the Heaven Officer of Taoism and pray for luck at home or temple during the daytime. Traditionally, Chinese should decorate the light lanterns around the house and children carry the candle paper lantern on the street at night. It might the safety concern, not too many follow this custom today. In stead, many people will attend different activities of the Lantern Festival.

Chinese Sky Lantern

The sky lantern probably was invented before Late Han Dynasty. A prime minister Kung-Ming used sky lantern for military liaison purpose during Three Kingdom epoch (221A.D.). Some people still call the sky lantern as Kung-Ming lantern.
During the night of lantern festival, Some people in Taiwan will fly the sky lantern by writing their wishes on the paper lantern and pray their wishes come true. Long time ago, people thought the lantern will fly up to the heaven. The god of heaven will receive their messages and will give them blessing.
Lantern Festival is also called. Yuan-Xiao Festival. This is because Chinese eat Yuan-Xiao on this day. This custom originated from the Eastern Jin Dynasty in the fourth century, then became popular during the Tang and Song Dynasty.
Yuan-Xiao Yuan Xiao just like Tang-Yuan SoupCircle. They are made of sweet rice flour into sticky glutinous balls. They can be filled in with sesame, red-bean or peanut butter paste. Usually, they are severed with sugar water. But some people still  make salty Tang-Yuan. 
The difference between Yuan-Xiao and Tang-Yuan is the way they are made and cooked. This is because that Chinese in different geographic area prepare the food in different way. Chinese call the one they eat on Winter Solstice Day is Tang-Yuan. The one they eat on the Lantern festival is called Yuan-Xiao.

Another Lantern Legendary Story

In Han Dynasty, Mr. Eastern is a favorite advisor of the emperor. One winter day, he went to the garden and heard a little girl crying and ready to jumping into well to suicide. Mr. Eastern stopped her and asked for why. She was a maid in the emperor's palace and her name was Yuan-Xiao. She never have chance to meet her family after she worked at palace. She missed them so much every 12th lunar month. If she couldn't have the chance to show her filial piety in this life, she would like to die. Mr. Eastern promised her to find a way for her family reunion.
Mr. Eastern left the palace and put a table on the street and disguised as a fortuneteller. since his reputation, many people asked for the fortune. But every one had the same prediction - severely fire accident on 15th lunar day. The rumor spread quickly. Everyone worried about the future and asked Mr. Eastern for help.
Mr. Eastern said, "On the 13th lunar day, the God of Fire will send a fairy lady in red to burn down the city. If you see a lady in red with green pant on the black horse on that day, You should ask for her mercy." Yuan-Xiao acted the red fairy lady on that day. When people asked for her help, she said, "Yes. I'm the messenger of the God of Fire and come to check on the city and going to set up fire on 15th. This is an order from Jade Emperor. He will watch from the heaven. I give you a copy of imperial decree from the God of Fire. You should go to ask your emperor to find a way out." After she left, people went to palace to show emperor the decree which is written - capital city is in trouble, fire burns on the palace, heaven fire burns all night long on the 15th.
The emperor of Han Dynasty was greatly shocked. He called and asked Mr. Eastern for the advise. After pondering for a while, Mr. Eastern said, "I heard the God of Fire likes to taste Tang-Yuan. Does Yuan-Xiao often cook Tang-Yuan for you? On the 15th lunar day, let Yuan-Xiao make Tang-Yuan. Your Majesty takes charge of the worship ceremony and gives order to every house to prepare Tan-Yuan to worship the God of Fire in the same time. Also, deliver another order to ask every house in the city to hang red lantern and explode fire crackers. Plus, inform that everyone in the palace and people outside the city to carry their lanterns on the street to watch the lantern decoration and fireworks. In this way, Jade Emperor wouldn't be deceived at heaven. Then everyone can be out of fire accident trouble." The emperor happily followed the plan.
Lanterns were everywhere in the capital city at the night of 15th lunar day. People were all moving on the street. Fire crackers kept making noisy. It looked like entire city on fire. Yuan-Xiao's parents went into the palace to watch the lantern decoration. Yuan-Xiao made a big lantern and wrote down her name outside the lantern. they happily reunited together after her parents called her name. Everybody was safe during the night. The emperor of Han Dynasty had a new order that people should do the same thing every year. Because Yuan-Xiao cooked the best Tan-Yuan, people called the day as Yuan-Xiao festival.

Guo Nian (survive the Nian monster's coming, aka "Happy Chinese New Year.")

Nian, an ugly bloodthirsty monster emerges on the last night of each year to destroy villages and eat people. A wise elder advised villagers to scare the monster away with loud noises. That night, they set fire to bamboo, lit fireworks, and banged their drums. The monster, afraid of the loud noises and lights, ran away to hide in its cave. In another version of the myth, an old man persuaded Nian to turn its wrath on other monsters, not the villagers. Before he was seen riding away on Nian, the old man, actually a god, advised the people to hang red paper decorations in their homes and set off firecrackers on the last night of the year to keep Nian away.

On the first day of the new year, the villagers celebrated, greeting each other with the words Guo Nian, which mean “survive the Nian.” That tradition that has continued to this day, with Guo Nian now meaning “celebrate the new year.”
