Pagan/Wiccan Religion/Witches Pyramid-Be Silent


The whole be silent aspect of wicca:
Is it true that talking about magical work will weaken it, and if so is there ever a case when this is not true....and you can discuss your plans, or magic performed already before the next moon cycle ect?
The three fold rule-
By allowing someone to harm you to my understanding you are breaking the an harm none rule, so you have to perform a protection spell or something.
Well what if someone has done you way wrong and has caused events to alter in your life because of lies ect how can I not necessarily "get them" but have justice, or would this still fall under the three fold rule....little confused books don't say much on these topics

thank you

Greetings Lady Stella,

This is an interesting question and one that many people discuss. When one does a magical working it is important to follow the "steps" of creation and manifesting. It is useful to review all the steps as you have opened the door!

These steps of course are:

1. Intent
2. Consensus
3. Due Diligence
4. Working it
5. Keep silent

Intent - What exactly are you looking to accomplish. Be specific in what you are intending and make it a realistic and within the balance and harmony of the universe.

Consensus - Seek opinions from those who are in one's own elders counsel if you have one, and meditate on the specific working to be able to add power to the working and to see its benefits to self and others.

Due Diligence - Do those things in the mundane world that relate to the working. For example, if you do a working for a new job u need to send out resumes!

Working   - do the appropriate magic

Keep Silent   - This is the point for your question. Keep Silent is related to continuing to focus on the working. By this I mean that once the working is done, "checking on it" like looking over your shoulder to see if it is coming actually pushes the working away. As you said discuss your plans, or magic performed already before the next moon cycle   - is NOT a problem. The Keep Silent portion of any working is related to "accepting" that the work is done and working toward your goal or manifestation.

I hope this helps.

Bright Blessing,
