Why I Don’t Do Magic for People


As a rule of thumb, I do not do spells for friends. One is because I value my privacy and theirs. By doing a spell, I would intimately know their business. Moreover, they have no assurances that I would not do spells against them if an argument breaks out in our group. As for me, I dislike being used as a tool much like a hammer.

Since my objectivity is non-existent, I would naturally want to help my friend. If I do a spell for them. I may enable them to do something unethical. Not only that, I may have prevented them from facing the consequences of their actions.

Therefore if a friend asks me to do spell, I would refuse. However, if they are considering something illegal, I would alert the authorities. If it is something unethical, I would tell them why I think that. Otherwise, I would consider it none of my business, whatever they wanted to do.

  1. I’m bothered a little that people might want anything done for them. Isn’t the idea to use these things for your own self empowerment to chart your own path. Looking for a quick fix is the way of the world. Power without the discipline to attain it…dangerous.

    • One thing that I run into are money spells and love spells. People want the quick fix in those areas. I tell them get a job or get financial counseling. As for love, I consider those spells unethical since they are trying to force someone to love them.

  2. I’ve always understood that spellcraft is more effective if you do it yourself, with your own intentions, rather than for others, anyway. I’d never dream of doing a working for anyone else, but I might help show someone how to do it for themselves.
