Would you have confidence in Santa Claus? Jolly Old St. Nicholas is an important part of western society and many of us matured with this particular magical icon. Recently I came upon the notion that Santa represents a unique archetype. In Jungian psychology, archetype is identified as an inherited memory represented inside the mind by a universal symbol and observed in dreams and myths.
In searching for these particular symbolic images with this dear old man I realized that which Santa Claus represents 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 of our dreams and wishes becoming reality. During this season we have been filled with expectations, the brilliance of light-filled homes, the enjoyment to be with friends and neighbors to celebrate life, and also the joy and gratitude of giving and receiving.
I discover that santa in your house reflects several archetypes. He is seen from the Innocent archetype, helping us to trust, to hope as well as believe 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 the trust that most will probably be well.
The Caregiver archetype, however, will not be within the exercise of power that is the motive, nevertheless the drive to bestow care on individuals who need it: the care, concern and nurturing they lack but deserve. He is about giving to others fulfilling the requirements. And he will not ask for anything in return except a cookie, glass of milk or some eggnog. He appears to be a strong guy, settling on who turns into a new Nintendo and who gets t-shirts or shoes. Whenever we are good and when we feel, Santa will guarantee we get everything you want.
A tremendous aspect of Santa’s story is definitely the magical transformation from his rising up a chimney by the touch of his nose in addition to 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 enjoy to all, one child’s heart at the same time. Santa is definitely the quintessential Magician archetype helping us transform and transcend current reality to find new methods for dealing, being and succeeding.
As we are creating 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. As you may have chosen then more clearly defined your options in creating your 2010 Journey, take advantage of this method to shift your beliefs and allowing of that which you desire.
Sometimes simply the subtle shift from viewing our images from a grownup aspect of trying to force, worrying over and wondering how things will change, on the wide-eyed expectations and faith of kids. A key element 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 available to the Infinite Possibilities of the Universe.
Then too, we are able to liken Santa’s management skills to your universal manager. Are you able to envision him bringing toys to everyone, world-wide, in only one night? And all sorts of by the due date and within budget? That’s what we’re taught the Universe is capable of doing for people like us, whenever we change it over to God/Source. From the book “Ask & It Is 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. So that as we take a step back, and permit the Universe set things set up, 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 pay attention to giving over to your Universal Manager all the stuff you are feeling you should do during 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 every one of the chores I feel I have to do. Amazingly, some get done, some don’t, and some just don’t seem very important. I’ve had instances when my daughters and daughters-in-law would offer to accomplish a number of the baking. I’ve learned to take help and reply having a grateful “Yes!” This method is priceless in most elements of life, not only the holidays. The Law of Attraction is unfolding and orchestrating all that must occur to bring me my desires, Now.
