Positive and Negative Magick
Wiccans do not practice negative or “black” magick as none Pagans say. We believe that doing harm in any form goes against our beliefs. The Law of Three states that what you send out or do, good or bad, returns to you three fold. In other words Karma.
I always try to think of the Law of Three in all that I do. I try to be kind to others knowing that it will be repaid to me three fold. And it doesn’t have to be something extravagant but something simple like letting someone out of a parking space into traffic when it’s backed up. Or just a simple smile. I do not lie as that is another form of sending out bad energy. Plus it feels good and makes me happy to be kinds to others, even people I don’t know. This should also apply to not saying something bad about other people . Say something good or as the old saying goes “If you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all.”
As with everything though there is a negative side to magick. There are people who practice negative Witchcraft . I wish it wasn’t so but I feel you should understand as in all things there are negative sides . But I am happy to say I have not met such people. Negative magick is any form of magick that harms another, including yourself. It just doesn’t make sense to use negative magick, why would you bring all the bad energy back to yourself? No matter what you think you are gaining you are only hurting yourself in the end along with others.
I’m sure you are asking what a negative spell is. A love spell used to make a specific person fall in love with you is negative magick. You take away their free will and this manipulates them. You never take away someone’s free will. The same goes with a spell for revenge. You do not need to “get revenge” because whatever someone does to you will return to them three fold. Sometimes a spell you think is meant to help someone can really be hurting them. Before you perform a spell for anyone you get their permission. If you cannot you send them only the energy they can use. When my Grandparents were very sick I would send them healing energy but say only what they can use or send them loving energy. That way they can accept what they want, which in some cases may be nothing. But you give them the option to choose.
