Oracle Reflections – Sacrifice
Sacrifice. To let go. To give up something. To clear space for something new. Clear space for something more useful.
Sacrifice was a word that used to make me feel unsettled and a bit fearful. Because I had given so much of my time and gifts to things and people who didn’t value what I had to offer. It was often painful and unpleasant. I was left to feel like I was giving and receiving nothing in return.
But a shift in perspective has come and I see a new picture. I no longer view Sacrifice as an uncomfortable or unpleasant action. It is not losing anything, instead simply releasing one thing that has served it’s purpose and no longer benefits me. Sacrifice is clearing a new space for something more excellent to enter in.
I am happy to say that to give up something or to release perhaps a relationship that no has run its course in the present form. To make room for it to flourish in a new and exciting way is a beautiful gift to give to yourself and the other. For it ushers you both forward into the new space that awaits you to share with others the beautiful gift that is you.
So to view Sacrifice as a beautiful act is to give yourself a fresh start. A new beginning.
Affirm: To Sacrifice is to give myself a gift of allowing something new to enter. To Sacrifice is to release all that is out of season to invite a new season.
