Curiosty about Wicca and Life.

Hi everyone, Iím thinking about trying out Wicca but Iím a bit scared and confused especially with the three folds law. Does that apply to everything or just Wicca? Because there are many different beliefs in every religion but only one has to be correct right?Unless our lives are based off what we believe? Iíve kinda always thought we go to a realm of our beliefs when we die. Anyway Iím scared about the cons of anything in Wicca. What draws people to it? What are the pros with it along with the cons. Iíll state some more of my concerns.

Charging salt or charging crystals is it okay to do and can it have negative precotions are we supposed to protect ourselves in everything we do spiritual wise or just Wicca and whatever other belief goes by the same factors like pagan for instance if they believe the same thing. Praying is something everyone does for instance but we donít protect ourselves in that unless it doesnít count as a spell someone has to tell me lol I donít even know if negativity can occur from praying.

Thatís why Iím getting at maybe itís the certain beliefs of what religion or spiritual background you have that matters. I donít know if Iím right lol

Thanks for the help! Sorry if this was confusing and please let me know so I can do better next time. Im not good with writing and putting my thoughts together.

Hello

The threefold law was taken out of context from a book called High Magic Aid written by Gerald Gardner.

The popular misconception that there is a Wiccan Rule or Law of Three or Threefold Return comes from a misinterpretation of a passage in a work of fiction written by Gerald Gardner, the grandfather of modern Wicca. The book was called High Magic’s Aid, and he wrote it with the permission of his High Priestess. It had to be fiction because at that point, witchcraft was still illegal in Britain. In that book and its fictional story, the protagonist undergoes a sort of initiation rite in which he is taught “mark well when thou receivest good, so equally art bound to return good threefold.”

The witch is herself the agent of a threefold response, not the universe. Thus, when a witch receives anything positive; the witch is bound to return the favor threefold. However, anything negative sent out to someone, and that someone finds out; the witch deserves the retribution for sending out a poorly spell.

Wicca: Threefold Law

The positive side of Wicca is a nature-based 'religion'. Wicca is an offshoot of traditional british witchcraft wrapped in ceremony and pseudoreligion. I would recommend reading A Witches' Bible: The Complete Witches' Handbook by Janet Farrar and Stewart Farrar for further information on Wicca.

The negative side of Wicca is the neo-Wiccans who preach that Wicca is all "goodness and light" and often refuses to learn, refuses to think, and refuses to consider the possibility that they could possibly ever be wrong.

Charging is fine. There's nothing wrong with charging salt or crystals, in fact many charge crystals during a full moon to empower and infuse them with energy to work with specific properties. However, when one is using their own energy to enchant or empower you might need to cleanse yourself from any negative attachments both mentally and physically. That's how I feel anyway.

I've never heard of any negative experiences through prayer.
