Retrieving Your Lost Power
Please make my "ex" love me again.
How can I make Joe/Jane do the things I want?
The problem with these requests is that they involve compelling someone against their will. Manipulating people in the physical world isn't great, and it's not great in the magical realm either.
Magical manipulation steals a person's freedom to choose their own path. And while this can be tempting against jerks, depriving someone of their freedom feels wrong to me. I was bullied relentlessly as a kid, and while I've dreamed manyyy times of exacting revenge, I haven't done it, because that would make me a bully too.
Manipulative magick can seriously backfire. The universe is a place of equilibrium,1 and if you send out negative energy in the form of manipulation or curses, what do you think you'll get back?
I experienced this "bounceback" effect in small doses when I first started doing magick, and it wasn't pretty. A magick spell may "return to sender" with its original level of force — but it can also come screaming back home in a corrupted or more powerful form that turns out to be far worse than what was sent out into the cosmos originally.
In witchy terms, the above is known as The Threefold Law: anything you send out will come back three times, or with three times the ferocity, so it's best to err on the side of love and compassion.2
Some witches don't believe that The Threefold Law is real, and that the universe permits firing off curses willy-nilly because we're creatures with a "shadow side" that needs to balance the light with the dark. This sounds great in theory, but I'm not sure I'd want to be standing anywhere nearby when those negative spells come roaring back home!
In her great occult book, Positive Magic: Occult Self-Help, the famous witch Marion Weinstein is crystal clear:
So, a spell with an intention like this:
Sending out positive vibes may not get the exact outcome you imagined, but it will
likely be the best overall outcome for you in the long
