Ethical, Powerful Witchcraft (Pt. 2)

Hello, readers! I hope your Friday’s been as nice as mine!

   As I said in yesterday’s post, magick can be a very powerful force, but under the wrong circumstances, it can cause a lot of pain and problems. There are two reasons why certain spells can be harmful:

  1. They attempt to take away an individual’s free will.
  2. They attempt to harm an individual.

So magick shouldn’t be used on others, and it shouldn’t be used for the purpose of hurting others.

   But wait? What about love spells? What if you have a certain someone in mind? What if you want to heal someone, or perform a spell for a friend? Don’t stress about it. There are plenty of ways to handle this situation.

  1. Figure out why you want to perform the spell. For example, it’s perfectly alright to want to bring love into your life, but if the plan is to get back at someone (and I have heard of people wanting to do this), I would avoid performing the spell. If you want to bring a specific person into your love life, I would also avoid it. Why? Because this starts to creep into unethical territory, since you’re now making someone fall for you. This can also be an unhealthy move, as this person may not be a good match for you.
    • To Avoid This: create a spell that asks for the right person, not necessarily the one you want. It’s okay to bring up the traits you’d like in a partner, but a spell like this is general enough for the universe to do its job.
  2. Ask for permission. If you’d like to perform a spell for a loved one, asking for permission can ensure that nothing comes back with any side effects. Just asking “Can I perform a spell for you?” can be enough. If it’s a yes, explain how the spell works and the purpose for any tools used. Your loved one can then decide if they still want the spell done. If they say no, simply provide a prayer if you pray. If that doesn’t feel like enough, generalize the spell. For example, if you want to do a healing spell for someone, do it for a community or the world instead. Ask for healing for everyone, not one specific person.

   So that’s what I have today. If you have any comments or questions, let me know in the comments. Blessed Be!
