T is for the Threefold Law

Welcome to Frankly Scarlett's April A to Z Blog Challenge.

This year my theme is A Goddess' Glossary and we are looking at terms utilized by Goddesses, Priestesses, Shamans and Witches. These are terms that might occur in my new fantasy series, Paisley Cove.

 T is for the Threefold Law

The Threefold Law or Rule of Three is a belief held by Pagans and Wiccans that whatever energy you put out into the world, will come back to you three-fold. This law applies to both positive and negative energy and is sometimes believed to correspond with karma.

I wrote earlier in the month about free will. If a Wiccan is casting a protection spell, for example, she cannot simply place a curse on another or compel another to do something against his/her own will, but she can say that whatever that person was to wish upon her will be reversed three-fold.

Maybe this is where the old saying, "Be careful what you wish for," comes from. I hope you are having fun with the Goddess Glossary and we are in our final week of the A-Z challenge. If you aren't leaving me comments, please do. I can promise if you put your blog link in the comment, your visit will be returned to you at least a single fold.

  1. Hmmm, wondering if "Bad luck comes in threes." comes from this as well.

  2. The Threefold Rule also applies to signs from the Universe. When you are seeking answers, wait for 3 signs. Works every time! I'm loving your pieces!
