The Threefold Law

The Threefold Law, is probably one of the most misunderstood things in Witchcraft.

It is often described as an act of Karma, but that’s not how it works.

Attributed to Gerald Gardner, the idea is whatever energy you send out to others, will be returned three times as strong. Not in a Karmic way, but as a response. In this way it is a code of conduct amongst witches:

“Though hast obeyed the Law, but mark well, when thou receivest good, so equally art bound to return good threefold”.

So when you receive blessings from someone, you should return them three times. The same goes for the opposite.

This does not mean that whatever energy you send out into the universe will somehow come back to you, three times as strong. (That is the Boomerang Effect, and “threefold” in this instance is more metaphorical than precise.)

Of course, this is a tenet only held by some; not every Witch or Wiccan follows The Threefold Law.
