This was floating through my mind recently. Everyone talks of spells that bring positive intentions with the focus of "harm none", but I often wonder if there are those out there(you may reply anon here, just be nice) who cast and never have a lick of bad luck thrust upon them. I have always chosen to live by the law harm none do as ye will.
If you do spellwork and have had the 3 fold law come back to you, what happened?
I hear of people doing "dark" spellwork and often wonder if they have lives that are constantly happy or dark and dreary. It seems like those of us that work positive spells seem to have more incidences of bad things happening, jsut from random observations of friends recently. I guess a follow up question here is:
Do you think a witch needs to do dark/light magic for balance in their life??
And non pagan moms, please refrain from bashing or joining in if you do not have any answers to this question.

I have only cast a few spells and not one since I was a teenager. I cast one on a frenemy. It was a revealing spell. It was supposed to show who her true nature (which in her case, was rotten) to everyone. I think it worked. Her friends and family turned their back on her for a few years and she got a real reality check. I do recall thinking that I paid the price for it too, but it was so long ago, I couldn't tell you exactly why anymore.
I also cast a mild love spell on my son's father. Bad, bad, bad idea. He was not the one for me, and all we ever did is fight and argue.

"Do you think a witch needs to do dark/light magic for balance in their life?? "
This is a very good question, and I honestly think that there needs to be some balance in this respect. However, finding that balance can be difficult I think. I don't think someone should go around casting dark spells just to try to gain balance. I do think that there are times when certain spell that could be considered dark can be used and it is during those times that we reach a certain balance. But it's not like I think we should cast one 'dark' spell for every 'light' one we cast. As far as using spells for defense, I agree with anon :50 on that one. I should be able to defend my self any way I see fit, including using magic. But I would never use it to assault or attack someone, but to only prevent them from harming me.
And why on earth does this discussion remind me of Richard Rahl from the Sword of Truth books? LoL!
