Do you rely on Santa Claus? Jolly Old St. Nicholas is a fundamental part of western society and many people grew up using this type of magical icon. Recently I came upon the notion that Santa represents an exclusive archetype. In Jungian psychology, archetype is defined as an inherited memory represented within the mind by a universal symbol and observed in dreams and myths.
While seeking for these particular symbolic images of this dear old man I realized that which Santa Claus stands for can also be used to motivate us in creating for the new year. I see him like a fun-loving guy that brings us joy, love, excitement and happiness. It’s said he makes all our dreams and wishes become a reality. Throughout this season we have been full of 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 proof of santa reflects several archetypes. He can be seen within the Innocent archetype, helping us to trust, to hope as well as to believe that a much better day lies ahead. He or she is clearly driven by faith and trust, bring that hope and giving us that faith as well as the trust that all is going to be well.
The Caregiver archetype, however, is not within the exercise of power this is the motive, but the drive to bestow care on those who require it: the care, concern and nurturing they lack but deserve. He is about giving to others fulfilling their needs. And then he fails to request anything in exchange except a cookie, glass of milk or some eggnog. He appear to be a strong guy, settling on who turns into a new Nintendo and who gets t-shirts or shoes. If we are perfect of course, if we feel, Santa will guarantee we receive everything we want.
A tremendous aspect of Santa’s story may be the magical transformation from his rising up a chimney by the touch of his nose in addition to his yearly trek worldwide. And on top of 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 any given time. Santa is definitely the quintessential Magician archetype helping us transform and transcend current reality to get new means of dealing, being and succeeding.
While we are creating our dreams, our visions, and our choices for 2010, let’s all make sure to use our Santa Claus model along with the Law of Attraction, Creation and Allowing. When you have selected and after that more clearly defined your options in creating your 2010 Journey, utilize this method to shift your beliefs and allowing of the that you desire.
Sometimes only the subtle shift from viewing our images from a mature aspect of trying to force, worrying over and wondering how things changes, to the wide-eyed expectations and faith of kids. A key aspect of the Art of Allowing is usually to let go and let God. Releasing our attachment to old beliefs, ideas and teachings allows us to ready to accept the Infinite Probabilities of the Universe.
Then too, we could liken Santa’s management techniques into a universal manager. Could you envision him bringing toys to everyone, world-wide, within one night? And all by the due date and within budget? That’s what we’re taught the Universe is capable of doing for people, if we transform it to God/Source. In the book “Ask & It Is Actually Given” one of several Proven Processes is catchusanta it up to the manager. As we set our goals, it’s like delegating to a Universal Manager. And also as we take a step back, and allow the Universe set things into position, we CREATE! Remember, we’re not quitting choices, we’re merely turning over every detail and creating our choices.
I urge you to focus on giving onto your Universal Manager everything you sense you have to do within this holiday week. You’ll think it is amazing that when we shift our focus of reality, our reality changes. I’ve performed this personally when I’ve felt overwhelmed by all of the chores I feel I must do. Amazingly, some get done, some don’t, and some just don’t seem essential. I’ve had times when my daughters and daughters-in-law would offer to accomplish some of the baking. I’ve learned to take help and reply by using a grateful “Yes!” This method is priceless in all elements of life, not only the holidays. What The Law States of Attraction is unfolding and orchestrating all that must eventually bring me my desires, Now.
