Would you rely on Santa Claus? Jolly Old St. Nicholas is an integral part of western society and a lot of us grew up with this particular magical icon. Recently I came upon the idea that Santa represents a distinctive archetype. In Jungian psychology, archetype is identified as an inherited memory represented from the mind by way of a universal symbol and observed in dreams and myths.
In searching for such symbolic images of the dear old man I realized that which Santa Claus stands for can also be used to motivate us in creating to the new year. I see him as a fun-loving guy that can bring us joy, love, excitement and happiness. It’s said he makes all our dreams and wishes becoming reality. Within this season we are loaded with expectations, the brilliance of light-filled homes, the fun being with friends and neighbors to celebrate life, along with the joy and gratitude of giving and receiving.
I realize that capture santa in your house reflects several archetypes. He can be viewed within the Innocent archetype, helping us to trust, to hope and to think that an improved day lies ahead. He or she is clearly driven by faith and trust, bring that hope and giving us that faith and also the trust that all will probably be well.
The Caregiver archetype, however, is not from the exercise of power this is the motive, nevertheless the drive to bestow care on people who need it: the care, concern and nurturing they lack but deserve. He is about giving to others fulfilling their requirements. And he will not ask for anything in exchange 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. Once we are excellent and if we believe, Santa will assure we get everything we wish.
A significant element of Santa’s story may be the magical transformation from his rising up a chimney from the touch of his nose along with his yearly trek worldwide. And besides that, his flying reindeer without GPS onboard is nothing short of miraculous, indeed. He magically brings gratitude, compassion and want to all, one child’s heart at a time. Santa is the quintessential Magician archetype helping us transform and transcend current reality to discover new methods of dealing, being and succeeding.
While we are coming up with our dreams, our visions, and our alternatives for 2010, let’s all be sure you use our Santa Claus model along with the Law of Attraction, Creation and Allowing. While you have selected and then more clearly defined your options in creating your 2010 Journey, utilize this method to shift your beliefs and allowing of the which you desire.
Sometimes only the subtle shift from viewing our images from a grown-up element of attempting to force, worrying over and wondering how things can change, for the wide-eyed expectations and faith of kids. An integral component of the Art of Allowing is to let go and let God. Releasing our attachment to old beliefs, ideas and teachings permits us to open to the Infinite Possibilities of the Universe.
Then too, we can liken Santa’s management skills to some universal manager. Are you able to envision him bringing toys to everyone, world-wide, in only one night? And on time and within budget? That’s what we’re taught the Universe can perform for people, if we transform it to God/Source. In the book “Ask & It Can Be Given” one of several Proven Processes is catchusanta it to the manager. As we set our goals, it’s like delegating into a Universal Manager. And also as we take a step back, and enable the Universe set things in position, we CREATE! Remember, we’re not quitting choices, we’re merely turning over every detail and creating our choices.
I urge you to concentrate on giving over to your Universal Manager everything you are feeling you should do in this holiday week. You’ll discover it amazing that when we shift our focus of reality, our reality changes. I’ve done this personally when I’ve felt overwhelmed by all the chores I feel I have to do. Amazingly, some get done, some don’t, while some just don’t seem so important. I’ve had instances when my daughters and daughters-in-law would offer to perform several of the baking. I’ve learned to just accept help and reply with a grateful “Yes!” This procedure is priceless in most aspects of life, not just the holidays. The Law of Attraction is unfolding and orchestrating all that needs to happen to bring me my desires, Now.
