While some people may say magic is magic and all magic is the same, that could not be farther from the truth. Black magic and white magic differ greatly. When you come across spells that work, it is important to note whether the spells are an example of black magic or white magic. You want to be responsible with magic. While metaphysical knowledge exists to empower you and to help you get the life that you want, it is important to do no harm to others when you are working with spells of any type.
The definitions of white magic and black magic differ slightly depending on the user’s perspective, but in general black magic is considered malicious or evil, while white magic is considered benevolent or good. In addition to differences in outcomes, black and white magic are distinguished by their differences in intent as well as the source of the power that they draw upon.
The most obvious difference between black magic and white magic is the result. In simplified terms, black magic is used to hurt, while white magic is used to heal. Black magic includes the dark arts, such as malevolent curses. In addition to being used to harm people, black magic spells are often related to satanism, animal sacrifice, and necromancy. White magic, on the other hand, relies on natural magic rather than spirits or the dark arts. White magic primarily involves healing and divination, but it can also include spiritual magic for the purposes of gathering information and blessing rather than haunting the living. The most destructive kinds of white magic are reversing a spell back on the castor or binding an attacker.
Black magic, white magic and intention
Black and white magic differ in intent as well. Black magic stems from malevolent motives, whereas white magic comes from goodhearted intentions. Magic used to harm another person would be classified as black magic, whereas magic used to help others is classified as white magic. Black magic is more aggressive, as its users generally do not concern themselves with ethics and it has no spiritual consequences.
White and black magic differ in terms of the types of power they draw on as well. White magic spells rely primarily on benevolent spirits, while black magic can involve necromancy to harness the power of evil spirits or satanism to employ the supernatural powers of Satan. Most white magic draws on incantations, prayers, incense, talismans, amulets, charms, and meditation. Whether someone uses black magic or white magic depends on their purpose in using magic, as well as their strengths, abilities, and ideology.

Magic and responsibility
Every person must decide on their own whether or not they will practice black magic. When making that decision, it is important to consider the role of karma, which is a universal law that ensure that what you put out is what you give back. When you intend harm to someone, the Universe ensures that harm is intended for you. It’s metaphysical law.
Think very carefully before working with black magic. Even if you feel the use of black magic is justified, understand that if someone has done you harm, the Universe and karma will ensure that they receive what they got. You don’t need to take matters into your own hands. Black magic does not have to be used as retribution or punishment for someone’s actions.
