Laws of the Universe – 3

“8. The Law of Challenge. We have the right to ask of another his or her intent, identity, and whatever pertinent information we feel we require. Ask your questions three times (using the same words each time) and you will be given the correct information. ”

The Wiccan version of this law relates to encounters with spirits or non-physical beings and is written as follows:  “We have the right to ask of another his or her intent, identity, and whatever pertinent information we feel we need when encountering a disembodied being.  Those who come to us in the roll of information givers, don’t mind being challenged. Ask the entity your question three times using the same words each time and you will be given the correct information.”

In my experience, when presented with visions, symbols, or a non-physical entity, asking for clarification several times usually provides a much clearer understanding of the message being delivered. Isn’t this just practicing more effective communication?  However, the number three seems to hold a certain magic in metaphysical terms.  When challenging spirits or requesting help, Wiccans rely on ‘The Law of Three Requests’ to bring in a stronger energy.

In Michael Sheridan’s Dream Dictionary, he also describes the meaning of the Number Three in Dreams as follows:

“Three has to do with commitment to the subject matter of the dream. It stands for mind, body and soul and is a request to commit mind body and soul to improving yourself in the direction indicated in the dream. Three will often appear in dreams about the heart as people who have suppressed their feelings often lack passion and commitment for new things in life. It is also similar to a broken 8 in appearance and 8 always symbolizes the heart. A triangle or pyramid also indicate commitment and request the dreamer to meditate on the subject matter of the dream.”  (http://www.dream-analysis.com/dictionary/page1.htm)
