Recently during a very painful moment I looked at someone I cared about and told them that I hope that karma would return the pain that they had caused me and my family. I followed that up by using candle magick. My emotions were high and strong as I focused on energizing my candle. I believe that never has my magick been so strong. Maybe because of the intense emotions involved...

Today I was told that because when I focus my intent the energy that I put out is so strong, that even by wishing Karma on someone, that could be considered casting. It was also stated that that could be considered bad magick. If that is the case, then my candle magick, which was also regarding Karma would also be bad magick, would it not?

Since my understanding of Karma is the belief any action done out of malice or unkindness results in the individual incurring a Karmic debt. A lesson brought about from the universe, not the person who the unkindness heas been dealt. At the time, since I considered it something the person had earned, I did not consider it to be destructive magick... Now I have doubts. And if it was indeed destructive magick, can it be undone?

 Any opinions would be very helpful...

You'll find someone, somewhere will consider just about any type of magic you can think of bad because somehow someone or something might be harmed. And "wishing Karma on someone" doesn't change into something more nasty just because you can put a lot of power behind it.

IMHO, what you did wasn't bad.  Wishing karma on someone isn't a bad thing, it's just like watching Court TV or something and wishing the defendant gets what he deserves. And giving karma a little push isn't bad either. You didn't choose the punishment. The universe will take care of it. Remember, if you do bad things, bad things come back to you. Maybe not in a timeframe that you can associate the two, but they do. No one ever really gets away with anything, not really.
