This is wrong right??
Post # 1
While rethinking my priorities, I noticed that I am using a lot of my magick for personal gain. I didn't even realize it, but it's kinda like second nature. I started to notice it when I kept a light green while driving today. I feel really bad about myself right now.. I have been abusing my abilities and I am seriously thinking about binding myself.. I just wanted to know, this is wrong right?? I am confused because the Wiccan Rede says "harm none do what ye will". However, there are some things that say magick for personal gain is wrong as well. Please let me know if I am over reacting, if I should just try to control it on my own, or should I keep considering binding myself??

This is something that is largely open to interpretation, and many traditions will provide you differing opinions on the matter.

You're certain to get tons of people telling you their own opinions on it here, too.

The bottom line is that you have to live with yourself at the end of the day. Do what's right for you, and what leaves you feeling good about yourself at the end of the day.

Don't bind yourself. I don't think you did anything wrong. You didn't use magic to hurt anybody and that's what counts. Humans naturally want to find ways that make their lives easier and using magic to make a light green longer is no exception. If you want to avoid using magic for personal gain just stop and think about what your using magic for before you do it. Ask yourself, who is this helping? Who is it affecting? Will it help others in a good or bad way? Will it affect others in a good or bad way? And is this spell benefitting me? And am I the only one who will benefit in this spell? Do this and you should be fine. Also, go easier on yourself if you're using magic for personal gain, everyone does it from time to time.

If using magick to get personal gain is forbidden, then why do people use magick at all?

You see, magick is considered nudging reality and that is it's nature. If you don't want to alter or nudge reality then don't do magick. We use magick for benefit, not for malevolent things. If you are doing good for yourself then that is great. Do what you gotta do to earn up the ranks but play fair too.
