Question about casting spells?

Every where I read you can not cast spells that interfere with others lives, However what about protection, healing, prosperity, and good spells for family and friends?

  • I boils down to, "thou shall harm none".... changing someones free will, for example, "to save them from themselves" would be in a way, harming them..

    wishing them better from an illness, or wishing for protection isn't harming, nor changin their free will, so it would be fine.

  • what i learned when i got interested in the whole spell casting thing was that there is black magic, grey magic and white magic. black magic is only used for evil, grey magic spells cast is left to find its own way turning into either evil (black) or happy (white) itself, and white magic was used only for good. so if your casting a nice spell on your family and friends i might first ask them if they mind you doing that, and make sure its a white spell lol

  • Ask 12 Pagans or Wiccans about a matter like this and you will get 13 different answers. Again it revolves around your intent.

  • pnwmom's got it right! I find it's best to ask permission.

  • At least IMHO, it's best to ask permission. Some people would welcome a little metaphysical help, others would rather you not bother. This doesn't apply to sending positive energy to someone or lighting a candle for them, but for a full working, yeah I would ask permission first.

    But I also agree with pnwmom, you're going to get lots of different answers to this question.

  • Here's the thing. Any time you are casting for someone else you are interfering with their free will. I read an example once of a woman who was terribly unhappy in her marriage. Her husband cheated and was abusive. Her sister, a witch, thought she was being helpful by casting a "release" spell which would allow this woman to leave her husband without regrets. While the woman did leave her husband she also lost her job, due to her hubby and boss being friends, and her children were put in the custody of abusive husband because he had the income. The woman ended up even less happy and lost much more than she would have had she stayed put.

    The point of the story was that we can't always see all the different factors in someones life. Obviously if someone has cancer and you're casting to help the Chemo work, you aren't going to harm them, but anything which could interfere with free will is a no-no without permission - Generally.

  • Sabrina said it pretty well. Also you are not harming anyone by using a protection spell. You do have a right to defend yourself and protect what is yours. Nothing wrong with healing spells.Use caution with wording and intent. Spiritual Power group here on CM has some good posts and nice ladies who might be able to help you out. Check the group out. It's not a real active group, but they have lots of good information.

  • As already stated, best to ask permission first. If the person is against the use of spiritual help then your energy will not be well recieved. Even with healing spells, sometimes they can backfire. For instance if someone is terminally ill and your doing a healing, they may not wish it. Perhaps their perfect end is to not suffer anymore and pass on. If your trying to hold them to this life, that is creating more harm than good. Understand that everyone has a natural cycle of life, and sometimes your wish is selfish. Make sure its what THEY want.
