Sacrifice To Get What You Want

Updated on January 29, 2013

Opposites Cannot Exist In the Same Place

The real question is what are we willing to give up, in order to receive what we desire? Is it really a trade off? The answer is yes! A magnet cannot have opposite polarities on the same side. One side is positive, the other side is negative, and it has to be turned over to experience the opposing affect. Positive and negative polarities cannot co-exist; they each have their own places away from each other.

Two Sides On A Magnet

There is a north and a south, a positive and a negative, yet both sides attract and collect things
There is a north and a south, a positive and a negative, yet both sides attract and collect things

Sacrifice and Receive...Isn't That A Contradiction?

Am I really saying we have to sacrifice to get what we want? Yes! This is not a contradiction, this is magnetism in our lives. We cannot experience poverty and wealth at the same time, we have to choose and experience each one separate of the other. To have and receive wealth, we have to sacrifice poverty, give it up all together.

Sacrifice sad to be happy; Sacrifice hatred to have love; Sacrifice anger for calm; Sacrifice fear to have faith and hope; Sacrifice lack to enjoy abundance; Sacrifice sorrow to experience joy!

There are many things we are hanging onto standing in our way of experiencing and receiving the things that we all want and desire so strongly. The sacrifice seems to large how can we give anything up, we need it all. We cannot experience the opposite at the same time. Everything is just a choice away from our grasp, if we are only willing to make the sacrifice to get it.

Just like the magnet, both sides attract things to it and accumulate more. No matter which polarity we choose, we will magnify it in our lives.

Sacrifice versus Investment

Once we decide what we want it is usually followed with a plan. This plan commonly consists of the investment required and occasionally looks at the sacrifice in relationship to the investment. The resources we consider as we make this plan are our time, money and personal resources. Sometimes we see the trade off in that once those resources are spent in one place they cannot be spent in another. This is the investment with the sacrificial trade off.

The Investment - The Risk-The Losses

With any investment even with insider tips so to speak there is a myriad of percentile outcomes. The return can be 100%, 50%, 25% or even 0%. Any investment is therefore a risk at best; you can get it all, a part or wind up with nothing at all, including loss of the investment. This is the point at which we assess our sacrifice. If we invested everything and got 100% return it was worth it, it paid off. If we invested 100% and got nothing we have sacrificed everything, all we have is gone and there is nothing to show for it.

Our time is gone, our money is gone, our resources are gone...how did this happen? How can it all be lost? Going after what we desire with nothing more than an investment plan can work, but it can also leave us empty handed unless we have made the proper sacrifices and added them into the plan from the beginning.

The Sacrifice Plan Works 100% Every time

A sacrifice is made every time any decision is made and it is a 100% guarantee that we will receive what we chose. Calculate the sacrifices as the investment plan is made, and then we will know exactly what we are investing in and what our return will be. Each sacrifice has a north and a south, a positive and a negative they repel each other and cannot exist in the same space. By choosing one thing we have automatically chosen to sacrifice its opposite.

Calculate each choice what is lost, what is gained. Whatever choice is made, it will be magnified and attract more of the same.

Start Sacrificing Now To Gain the Things We Want

Make sacrifice the first part of our plan to get what we desire, before investing anything. Calculate what we are willing to sacrifice to get what we want, then invest our time, money and personal resources.

Now is the time to start sacrificing, there has been enough of what we don't want in our world. One by one let's start sacrificing war, hatred, poverty, fear, and anger. Give it up; let it go, experience the loss, the sacrifice is necessary to get what we want.

Now that things have been sacrificed, lost and given up, now only the opposite remains. We now live one by one together with peace, love, wealth, faith and calm. The majority is seeking these things, we just need to make the sacrifice and let go of their opposites to experience them as individuals and as a collective society.

      That was great....and so true. It reminds me of Wallace Wattles talking about wealth can not exist in a mind filled with poverty and vice versa.Sacrifice is the beginning of success. Thanks for the piece it was illuminating

      The only freedom is without cravings. All of us should separate our needs from our wants. What all of us really need is minimal. Before I began earning a really good paycheck, my life was less stressful but I didn't have any toys if you know what I mean. Buddha definitely got it right! Thank you again, emohealer! You have sun fascinating hubs!

      As usual emohealer, another thought provoking hub, and I'm still thinking about this paragraph. (Make sacrifice the first part of our plan to get what we desire, before investing anything. Calculate what we are willing to sacrifice to get what we want, then invest our time, money and personal resources). And I'm planning to implement the advice there-in.

      Another great hub, emohealer. I was concerned at first when I saw the word sacrifice, as I think too many people are hung up by the idea that they have to 'sacrifice' the thngs they want and enjoy and lead a hard life to please their god. But I totally agree that you have to give up one thing and create a void and different thought pattern before you can attract another. Do you read the Abraham books?

    • Universal Laws profile image

      Universal Laws 7 years ago from UNIVERSE

      Great Hub. As always you have an interesting way of describing, this time "The Law of Sacrifice". As with all the Universal Laws this one is working whether you are intending it or not. If you consciously intend it, then it does not sneak up on you. Having this one sneak up on you is not always embraced in the first instant! Think of the bankers losing their money - may take a while before some of them realise the other things they are gaining because their perspective was so out of balance.

      All of the 11 forgotten Universal Laws according to Bob Proctor and Mary Morrisey -

      THE LAW OF THINKING

      THE LAW OF SUPPLY

      THE LAW OF ATTRACTION

      THE LAW OF RECEIVING

      THE LAW OF INCREASE

      THE LAW OF COMPENSATION

      THE LAW OF NON-RESISTANCE

      THE LAW OF FORGIVENESS

      THE LAW OF SACRIFICE

      THE LAW OF OBEDIENCE

      THE LAW OF SUCCESS

      Emohealer: I have been focusing on getting things done, and its so empowering, it can be a mundane task, but I am teaching my mind to follow through. Your reminder to chose one or the other makes much sense to me. Its the split mind, wanting one thing or the other that keeps us from moving forward. Choosing to be positive or negative involves a sacrice to stay focused. Just thinking out loud as you hub got me tho thinking. LOL!

That was part of what brought me to this understandiong and sharing. Yes, I have read the Abraham books, it has been quite some time however, very enlightening and some of the books that opened my mind to different possiblities.

      It's always good to look at familiar topics from a new angle and I like the way you grabbed our attention with the word 'sacrifice'. I associate sacrifice with giving up the things that give me pleasure, so I confess to having recoiled at the idea! There is more to sacrifice than giving up calories, however, and your hub has certainly given me some food for thought.

      Amanda,

      Thank you so much, I know how so many view sacrifice as you said and intended to reach both those who do and don't see it that way, because I truly believe in the message I wrote of embracing the pleasures and joys life has to offer. Enjoy the food, it is calorie free and flavor full. I appreciate your sharing and shining your light here! (I apologize for taking so long to respond, I have been in the North Carolina mountains at the onset of building a healing retreat and learning center) Thanks for your patience also!

      LOL, I like your perspective on it. The same thing can be seen from so many different angles. Maybe I would sacrifice the idea that they are naughty and choose to enjoy them. Diets don't appeal as they die with a "t" on the end, I prefer to choose living. Thank you for appreciating the idea and as you sacrifice that you will find the joy!

      I would also add ignorance, intolerance, and campaign contributions to the list of things to start sacrificing. All of the above only contribute to the election of and continued presence in office of representatives who bestow bailouts upon multi-billion dollar, "too big to fail" bankers such as Goldman Sachs, et al.

      As I read your Hub and I sat back and thought about it I can say this hub is a hub of great wisdom! For every positive their will be a negative and for every negative their will be a positive!

      In my life time I have been a blessed person (Not that I am worthy of it by no means) however it is when I am blessed that I realize that I have sacrificed to others and God has blessed me for my faithfulnes. God does not bless greed nor does he accept lazyness God expects us to ask, seek and knock!!

      Great Hub emohealer. I don't often use the word "sacrifice" to express the word "relinquish"; however, I've often pondered the meaning of the Tarot card 'the hanged man', as the traditional interpretation of the card is that you must "sacrifice" something in order to evolve. That was often worrisome, but Ta-da!..I see how it can be quite liberating. Thanks for the epiphany!

      If I have plenty of time, instead of a lack of it, I can do my yoga in the morning and take breaks from computer work during the day. I stay healthy, and the time used is paid back with a more alert mind that helps me work more efficiently. I like that . . . a lot.
