Went Against My Pagan Beliefs, Cursed a Woman I Didn't Know
I have been running an online/offline Wiccan service for the past 2 years. I practice and offer positive, white magick. But recently I had a client message and request a curse. I would have turned her away, but her reasons were compelling. They are confidential, but so you can get the gist of it: a coworker was following her home after work, harassing her at the workplace, and basically trying to get her fired. This woman was so distressed that she came to me for a curse.
Even though I haven't practiced this sort of magick before, I felt bad. So I accepted the request and did what she wanted. Two weeks later she calls me to let me know that the money was well spent. She explains how her coworker had a heart attack on the job and was hospitalized until further notice. She doesn't know the details yet but her boss elaborated and said they would be in physical therapy for at least three months, in order to make a full recovery.
I understand the consequences, but I also understand that I helped an innocent person keep their job. I feel guilty though, for not staying firm and going against my beliefs. I have Wiccan friends who specialize in this sort of magick. I could have referred her to them instead, but I agreed anyway. I'm not sure how to feel about it. I feel like I just fell into the "witch" stereotype that crazy Bible-thumping Christians blow up my email raving about.
So, I decided to put orders on a halt for a few days, until I can mentally recover. Whether you believe in my practices or you don't, please put yourself into my shoes. Did I do the right thing? I need an outsider's moral perspective on this.
