Would you believe in Santa Claus? Jolly Old St. Nicholas is a fundamental element of western society and many of us matured with this particular 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 from the mind from a universal symbol and observed in dreams and myths.
While seeking for such symbolic images with this dear old man I saw that which Santa Claus is short for can also be used to motivate us in creating for the new year. I see him being a fun-loving guy that brings us joy, love, excitement and happiness. It’s said he makes all our dreams and wishes be realized. During this season our company is loaded with expectations, the brilliance of light-filled homes, the fun for being with friends and neighbors to celebrate life, and also the joy and gratitude of giving and receiving.
I learn that catch santa reflects several archetypes. He can be seen within the Innocent archetype, helping us to trust, to hope and to think that an improved day lies ahead. He is clearly driven by faith and trust, bring that hope and giving us that faith and the trust that most is going to be well.
The Caregiver archetype, however, is just not inside the exercise of power that is the motive, nevertheless 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 he will not request anything in turn except a cookie, glass of milk or some eggnog. He is apparently an effective guy, settling on who receives a new Nintendo and who gets t-shirts or shoes. Whenever we are good and when we know, Santa will assure we get everything you want.
An important part of Santa’s story will be the magical transformation from his rising up a chimney with the touch of his nose along with his yearly trek around the globe. And besides that, his flying reindeer without GPS onboard is nothing short of miraculous, indeed. He magically brings gratitude, compassion and like to all, one child’s heart at one time. Santa is the quintessential Magician archetype helping us transform and transcend current reality to discover new means of dealing, being and succeeding.
While we are creating our dreams, our visions, and our alternatives for 2010, let’s all make sure to use our Santa Claus model in conjunction with the Law of Attraction, Creation and Allowing. While you have selected after which more clearly defined the options in creating your 2010 Journey, use this method to shift your beliefs and allowing of this that you desire.
Sometimes simply the subtle shift from viewing our images from an adult facet of trying to force, worrying over and wondering how things will alter, for the wide-eyed expectations and faith of kids. An important element of the skill of Allowing is always to let go and let God. Releasing our attachment to old beliefs, ideas and teachings allows us to ready to accept the Infinite Possibilities of the Universe.
Then too, we can easily liken Santa’s management techniques to some universal manager. Can you envision him bringing toys to everyone, world-wide, in just one night? And all sorts of on time and within budget? That’s what we’re taught the Universe is capable of doing for us, whenever we turn it onto God/Source. Within the book “Ask & It Is Given” one of several Proven Processes is catchusanta it onto the manager. Since we set our goals, it’s like delegating to some Universal Manager. And also as we take a step back, and let the Universe set things into position, we CREATE! Remember, we’re not letting go of choices, we’re merely turning over all the information and creating our choices.
I urge you to concentrate on giving onto your Universal Manager all the things you feel you have to do within this holiday week. You’ll think it is amazing that as we shift our focus of reality, our reality changes. I’ve carried this out 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 essential. I’ve had instances when my daughters and daughters-in-law would offer to accomplish a number of the baking. I’ve learned to accept help and reply using a grateful “Yes!” This procedure is priceless in every facets of life, not only the holidays. The Law of Attraction is unfolding and orchestrating all that needs to eventually bring me my desires, Now.
