Do you believe in Santa Claus? Jolly Old St. Nicholas is a fundamental element of western society and many of us matured using this magical icon. Recently I came upon the idea that Santa represents a distinctive archetype. In Jungian psychology, archetype is described as an inherited memory represented within the mind by way of a universal symbol and observed in dreams and myths.
While seeking for these particular symbolic images with this dear old man I realized that which Santa Claus is short for could also be used to motivate us in creating for that new year. I see him as a fun-loving guy which brings us joy, love, excitement and happiness. It’s said he makes all of our dreams and wishes become a reality. Throughout this season our company is packed with expectations, the brilliance of light-filled homes, the enjoyment of being with friends and neighbors to celebrate life, along with the joy and gratitude of giving and receiving.
I realize that proof of santa reflects several archetypes. He can be seen within the Innocent archetype, helping us to trust, to hope as well as think that a greater day lies ahead. He or she is clearly driven by faith and trust, bring that hope and giving us that faith and the trust that all will be well.
The Caregiver archetype, however, is not really inside the exercise of power which is the motive, however the drive to bestow care on those who need it: the care, concern and nurturing they lack but deserve. He or she is about giving to others fulfilling their requirements. And then he fails to require anything in turn except a cookie, glass of milk or some eggnog. He seems to be a strong guy, settling on who gets a new Nintendo and who gets t-shirts or shoes. When we are great of course, if we think, Santa will ensure we receive everything you want.
An important aspect of Santa’s story is definitely the magical transformation from his rising up a chimney with the touch of his nose as well as his yearly trek around the globe. And besides that, his flying reindeer without GPS onboard is literally miraculous, indeed. He magically brings gratitude, compassion and love to all, one child’s heart at the same time. Santa will be the quintessential Magician archetype helping us transform and transcend current reality to locate new methods of dealing, being and succeeding.
When we are coming up with our dreams, our visions, and our selections for 2010, let’s all remember to use our Santa Claus model in conjunction with the Law of Attraction, Creation and Allowing. While you have selected and then more clearly defined your options in creating your 2010 Journey, make use of this method to shift your beliefs and allowing of this you desire.
Sometimes just the subtle shift from viewing our images from a grown-up part of looking to force, worrying over and wondering how things will change, on the wide-eyed expectations and faith of kids. An integral element of the ability of Allowing is always to let go and let God. Releasing our attachment to old beliefs, ideas and teachings permits us to accessible to the Infinite Likelihood of the Universe.
Then too, we could liken Santa’s management techniques to a universal manager. Could you envision him bringing toys to everyone, world-wide, in only one night? And all on time and within budget? That’s what we’re taught the Universe can do for us, whenever we transform it over to God/Source. Inside the book “Ask & It Can Be Given” one of many Proven Processes is catchusanta it over to the manager. While we set our goals, it’s like delegating to your Universal Manager. So that as we step back, and permit the Universe set things in place, we CREATE! Remember, we’re not giving up choices, we’re merely turning over all the information and creating our choices.
I urge you to target giving up to your Universal Manager all the stuff you really feel you must do in this holiday week. You’ll think it is amazing that when we shift our focus of reality, our reality changes. I’ve done this personally when I’ve felt overwhelmed by each of the chores I feel I must do. Amazingly, some get done, some don’t, and some just don’t seem very important. I’ve had occasions when my daughters and daughters-in-law would offer to complete a number of the baking. I’ve learned to take help and reply having a grateful “Yes!” This technique is priceless in every aspects of life, not only the holidays. What The Law States of Attraction is unfolding and orchestrating all that must happen to bring me my desires, Now.
