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.

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.
