The Threefold Law
All good that a person does to another returns three fold in this life; harm is also returned three fold.
Also called ‘The Rule of Three’, the Threefold Law is the belief that any harm or good that a Wiccan does to someone else will come back on them, either to benefit or hurt and it will be magnified three times over. To Wiccans, this is a very powerful motivator for us to do no harm and a strong incentive to do good, as three times the good will come back to us. The Threefold Law acts as a reward for those who follow the Wiccan Rede and a punishment for those who violate it. It also helps us to carefully consider the possible consequences and effects of our actions on others and on ourselves.
