The 3-Fold Law


The 3-Fold Law

In magik this is often called the Law of 3-fold, meaning what you put out
will be returned to you 3-times over. So be careful what you wish for, YOU
will get it!
What Is The 3-Fold Law ?


A belief that any energy put out into the divine universe will return to
the sender three times.
Ancient beliefs state the energy will return to the senders mind, body and
spirit, thus the threefold concept.

Law of 9-fold


The 9-Fold law (also called the 3x3x3 law) is also practiced by some Craft
traditions. The concept is the same, however, the return is a little
different. In these traditions, the essence of the mind
holds within itself the energy of mind, body and spirit. The essence of the
body holds within itself the energy of it’s own mind body and spirt. And so
for the essence of the spirit. When energy is returned, it comes back 3
times to the Mind, 3 times to the Body and 3 times to the Spirit.

The Laws of Magickal Rights


The Laws of Magikal Rights
When you’re performing a ritual, rite or spell, karma is always in affect.
As a Shaman, or witch you must always think of the spiritual implication of
your intent. Here are some basic do’s and don’ts for the magikal practioner
to adhere to. Follow these simple rules and the laws of karma will not come
back to bite you and knock you off your feet.
The Do’s:
1.All actions should be of positive intent.
2.Conduct a spell or right with happiness, love and kindness.
3.Hold respect for all living things.
4.Accept the responsibility for your actions.
The Don’ts
1.Never cast a spell or right out of anger, jealousy or greed.
2.Never cast a spell for harm or to endanger another living being.
3.Never conduct a spell or right that requires harm to another living
being.
4.Never cast a spell or right to force someone into following your will
and desire.
The Reasoning Of The Laws
Now that you know the basics, think about why they’re in place to begin
with.
The most important and ultimate lesson of any spiritual belief system is to
learn, practice and live unconditional love. Above all else, this is the
underlying goal of all spiritual paths. Unconditional love is not an easy
path to follow. We are all human and we do make mistakes. But as a magikal
practitioner you must make the extra effort to adhere to this path. And the
lesson starts with yourself.
But why do you think this one lesson is so important and is the underlying
reason behind all the laws of magikal right? Well look at the laws. Your
actions in life and in magik should be positive in their intent. Having
respect for all living things is part of being positive and practicing
unconditional love. You wouldn’t harm a living creature if you loved it
unconditionally.

The Witches Pyramid


The witches Pyramid really worked to help me understand and get POWER out of my spells and other castings.

To Know, To Will, To Dare, and To Keep Silent. These make up the witches Pyramid.. Follow them with every spell casting and see how miraculous you’re results will be.

To Know
-corresponds to Air
-represents the witch’s reason/intellect/intuition/wisdom and other more mystical understandings…

This means know what you are doing, intellectually and practically. To have knowledge of spell work & magick, what may work best in your situation, what you are able to handle, are comfortable with, how to execute what you want. Know your spell. Research it, think of ALL possible outcomes. Know what element of spell it should be candle (fire), incense (air) and so forth. If you choose a candle spell, then know why you want to do a candle spell. If you choose a certain type of spell do it b/c you like it or b/c it speaks to you in a certain way. This is all about you and your energy don’t do what another is doing, do what is right for you.

Now that you have decided on the type of spell, learn about and know the steps/process. Always gather your tools in advance. Make each spell your own…For example…Let’s say you are feeling nervous and tense and want to do a relaxation spell on yourself. You find a the perfect spell for you BUT the spell calls for Lavender (lavender buds, lavender oil, lavender scented candle) but you relate pink to relaxation and roses make you feel calm..So tweak the spell to suit you. Instead of lavender use roses (rose oil or rose water, rose petals, rose scented candle). If you complete the spell using elements you don’t like. The spell will NOT work, b/c your energy will be focused on your dislike for lavender…

To Will
-corresponds to Fire
-represents the witch’s Will/Discipline/her skills in the arts of magic and life.

To Will – refers to magickal will. This means to be able to generate enough emotional and psychic energy to accomplish your purpose. I can’t stress enough that you must believe. Believe in your work, believe in your words, believe in your craft, believe in yourself and believe in your inner power. It’s not only your conscious mind that has to believe in the spell. Every fiber of your being must BELIEVE.

My spells still make me feel all giddy and nervous inside. I gather my tools and talk to the Goddesses and/or Gods I will be working with or if my spell does not involve a God or Goddess, I still talk to them while I prepare and thank them for previous spell works.

You should also respect the spell by turning off all distractions (t.v, radio put your cell phone on vibrate). I like to play Enya while I’m casting ( Enya-Only Time or Enya-Orinoco flow) or I like complete silence with no music. Remember this is your spell so do what is right for you. Your spell feeds off of your thoughts and energy, and if you don’t feed it well, it will not prosper.

To Dare
-corresponds to Water
-represents the witch’s Emotions/Heart since the word courage derives from a word that means “heart”

Until you act, the spell will be nothing more than a particularly vivid daydream. Yes, thoughts are real and can have an effect upon the world, but for an effective spell, you have to go through the motions. You don’t have to wait until you have your own private temple and the bestest altar and a perfect relationship with your Deities. You can make do with a few basics. Intent is the key here. Intent comes under Will and Dare. Are you making the best of your time, energy and resources? If you can’t afford actual granulated Frankincense, charcoal and a brazier, a stick of frankincense incense will do. If you don’t have your own permanent stone altar, a nice altar cloth spread over a convenient surface will suffice.

To Keep Silent
-corresponds with Earth

To Keep Silent– means to Shut Up About It!!! Don’t talk to anyone about it. Your positive energy is very important to a spell but someone elses negative energy can effect your spell also (even if they were not part of the ritual). Have you ever heard of a hater..Then you should understand why you should keep silent. There are even a rare few people who will go home and actively craft a counter-spell Witches have always been a secretive lot. In the old days of persecution, of course, there was a life-or-death need for secrecy. Today, Witches are more likely to be discreet about their spells and workings. There’s a practical reason for this: spells seem to work better when they’re not blabbed about. Indeed, some traditions believe that, after the spell is cast, it must not be spoken of nor thought about until the desired result has been achieved and verified. Many groups will not even discuss the particular working while in Circle, believing that this has a tendency to “pull back” the power and negate the working.

Not only that I just think it is bad etiquette to talk about such a sacred act.

I hope this helps

Brightest Blessings,

Witches Creed


WITCHES’ CREED
Hear Now the words of thee witches,
The secrets we hid into the night,
When magic was our destiny’s pathway,
That now we bring forth into light.
Mysterious water and fire,
The earth and the whispering air,
By hidden knowledge we know them,
And will and keep silent and dare.
The birth and rebirth of all nature,
The passing of winter and spring,
We share with the life universal,
Rejoice in the magical ring.
Four times in the year the Great Sabbat
Returns, and the witches are seen
At Lammas and Candlemas dancing,
On May Eve and old Hallowe’en.
When day-time and night-time are equal,
When sun is at greatest and least,
The four Lesser Sabbats are summoned,
And Witches gather in feast.
Thirteen silver moons in a year are,
Thirteen is the coven’s array.
Thirteen times at Esbat make merry,
For each golden year and a day.
The power that was passed down the age,
Each time between woman and man,
Each century unto the other,
Ere time and the ages began.
When drawn is the magical circle,
By sword or athame of power,
Its compass between two worlds lies,
In land of the shades for that hour.
This world has no right then to know it,
And world of beyond will tell naught.
The oldest of Gods are invoked there,
The Great Work of magic is wrought.
For the two are mystical pillars,
That stand at the gate of the shrine,
And two are the powers of nature,
The forms and the forces divine.
The dark and the light in succession,
The opposites each unto each,
Shown forth as a God and a Goddess:
Of this our ancestors teach.
By night he’s the wild wind’s rider,
The Horn’d One, the Lord of the Shades.
By day he’s the King of the Woodland,
The dweller in green forest glades.
She is youthful or old as she pleases,
She sails the torn clouds in her barque,
The bright silver lady of midnight,
The crone who weaves spells in the dark.
The master and mistress of magic,
That dwell in the deeps of the mind,
Immortal and ever-renewing,
With power to free or to bind.
So drink the good wine to the Old Gods,
And Dance and make love in their praise,
Till realms of the Gods receive us
In peace at the end of our days.
And Do What You Will be the challenge,
So be it Love that harms none,
For this is the only commandment.
By Magic of old, be it done!

Hear the Witches Plea


WITCHES PLEA
We are not evil
We don’t harm or seduce people.
We are not dangerous.
We are ordinary people like you.
We have families, jobs, hopes, dreams.
We are not a cult.
This religion is not a joke.
We are not what you think we are from looking at t.v.
We are real.
We laugh, we cry.
We are serious.
We have a sense of humour.
You don’t have to be afraid of us.
We don’t want to convert you.
And please don’t try to convert us.
Just give us the same right we give you–to live in peace.
We are much more than you think.

Pagan/Wiccan Etiquette


These are just general guidelines. Always remember to show respect to others even non-Wiccan/Pagans

* It’s a huge NO-NO  to identify anyone as participating in Wicca or as having Pagan beliefs. This can be extremely harmful and detrimental to the person who has been “outed”. It may seriously harm someone to share this information with even one person! Wiccans and Pagans  are still subject to persecution, ridicule,prejudice and harassment. In many cases this includes our own family.  A Witch may “come out of the broom closet” to only certain people. Never assume it to be your responsibility to share that information with others. Always be mindful of what you say. If you follow the Wiccan Rede (“An Ye Harm None, Do What Ye Will”) remember that outing someone can be harmful and is never acceptable.

* Even if you accidentally tell others about someones beliefs, tell the Witch involved as soon as possible exactly what was said.She may want to do damage-control. This is not a time to become defensive, remember you were wrong and it’s common respect to give him/her fair warning before she is confronted and caught off guard.

* Don’t “evangelize” others. No wants wants to feel as if  they are being forced to convert their beliefs. You can tell people about your spiritual path of course.  But no religion benefits by being forced down other peoples throats. This is basic Wiccan etiquette, that all religions would be smart to follow.

*Never cast spells on other witches. Never use the power against some else who has the power. If someone has “the power” they are connected to the Divine. So another person connected would be damaging their own power by working against another also connected.  Performing magick against other Witches brings the repercussions back to the sender.

*If you know of a Witch who is casting spells  against another tell the other Witch immediately. Harm will never come to the Witch that a spell has been cast against but harm will come to the sender. It is best for you both to disconnect from that individual and try the “friendship” again later after the individual has had time to grow and mature.

*Remember some individuals get arrogant after learning about the “Craft” and use their powers to stroke their own egos. It is best to disconnect from these types.

*Using magick irresponsibly goes against the Rede

*Never use magick against another that is in the craft.
