Scott Cunningham’s Magickal Principles
Scott Cunningham‘s Magickal Principles
1. Magick is natural.
2. Harm none, not even yourself, through its use.
3. Magick requires effort. You will receive what you put into it.
4. Magick is not usually instantaneous. Spells require time to be effective.
5. Magick should not be performed for pay.
6. Magick should never be used in jest or to inflate your ego.
7. Magick can be worked for your own gain, but only if it harms none.
8. Magick is a divine act.
9. Magick can be used for defense but should never be use for attack.
10. Magick is knowledge – not only of its way and laws, but also of its effectiveness. Do not believe that magick works – know it!
11. Magick is love. All magick should be performed out of love. The moment anger or hatred tinges your magick you have crossed the border into a dangerous world, one that will ultimately consume you.
