Doing Spells

Lighting a candle and chanting some words over a flame does not mean you are actually casting a spell. Before you begin down the path of magic, you should understand how it works.

The universe is energy; and on and within the Earth, we live within these energies. They surround us.

These energies must be used correctly or they can disrupt the flow of our lives or the lives of others. Therefore, it is important to be patient and learn what you are doing before you accidentally do harm when you intended to do good.

I would also like to say that I am a believer in Personal Consent and in the Law of Return.

Personal Consent means that we need to get permission before trying to "help" someone.

The Law of Return is a rule which states that in accordance with the laws of physics, energy that is directed in one direction will eventually return in the opposite direction. For every force there is an equal counter-force. Thus, positive spells are returned, as are the negative.

Wiccans believe in the Law of Three. That spells (energy) sent for good or evil return to the sender in threes.

Therefore, if you follow, it's wise to have the knowledge necessary rather than trying to do magic thru the back door.
