This is a detail that I’ve only heard of recently, and it’ got me in a bit of a long dazed period of contemplation. I’m having a bit of trouble rapping my head around it and was hoping for some clarification.
I’ve heard from a few people, here and there, form all sorts of places, that in order to throw a curse upon an enemy, one must get permission from… something? It wasn’t exactly clear.
I’ve heard you need permission from the spirits associated with that person - assuming of course that person even practices or is in contact in the first place.
I’ve heard you must get permission from the spirit you’re calling upon that it’s okay, and that they agree with it… assuming you’re using a spirit. This one kind of makes sense, but if they don’t agree, then why not just thank them for their time and then get your own hands dirty?
If you’re not using a spirit, would it be the power of magick itself you’d need permission from? How would that work? Is right and wrong not subjective, especially to magick and the universe itself?
If this is how I’m understanding it, it seems to be a big part of curse-working… and isn’t nearly brought up as much as it should be (IMHO), especially in writings and grimoires aimed at beginners; how are they suppose to be aware of that? I’d imagine they’ll end up hurting themselves if they don’t know what seems to me like a very crucial detail!
I guess I’m just confused on this factor of curse-working, as I’ve sparsely heard of it and am wondering if it’s a important step and how important exactly the step itself is.
To get spirits on your side is one thing, but to require permission from them like children, and not Gods with will and intent, “can I go curse the bad people pwease” just isn’t clicking in my head, and I really want to understand it. If someone needs to pay, they need to pay; why would it matter what else anyone or anything thinks otherwise of the situation?
