Can you rely on Santa Claus? Jolly Old St. Nicholas is a fundamental part of western society and a lot of us matured with this 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 from the mind from a universal symbol and observed in dreams and myths.
In searching for these symbolic images with this dear old man I saw 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 literally brings us joy, love, excitement and happiness. It’s said he makes all of our dreams and wishes becoming reality. Throughout this season we have been loaded with expectations, the brilliance of light-filled homes, the enjoyment for being with friends and neighbors to celebrate life, and the joy and gratitude of giving and receiving.
I discover that santa picture in your house reflects several archetypes. He can be viewed from the Innocent archetype, helping us to trust, to hope as well as 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 as well as the trust that is going to be well.
The Caregiver archetype, however, will not be inside the exercise of power that 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 needs. And that he is not going to require anything in exchange except a cookie, glass of milk or some eggnog. He appear to be a strong guy, settling on who gets a new Nintendo and who gets t-shirts or shoes. If we are good of course, if we believe, Santa will assure we get everything we want.
A significant aspect of Santa’s story is definitely the magical transformation from his rising up a chimney from the touch of his nose in addition to his yearly trek world wide. And in addition, his flying reindeer without GPS onboard is literally miraculous, indeed. He magically brings gratitude, compassion and love to all, one child’s heart at a time. Santa is definitely the quintessential Magician archetype helping us transform and transcend current reality to discover new methods for dealing, being and succeeding.
Since we are creating our dreams, our visions, and our options 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 chosen and after that more clearly defined your choices in creating your 2010 Journey, use this method to shift your beliefs and allowing of that which you desire.
Sometimes only the subtle shift from viewing our images from an adult facet of seeking to force, worrying over and wondering how things will alter, on the wide-eyed expectations and faith of kids. An important aspect of the skill of Allowing would be to let go and let God. Releasing our attachment to old beliefs, ideas and teachings permits us to open to the Infinite Likelihood of the Universe.
Then too, we can easily liken Santa’s management skills to a universal manager. Can you envision him bringing toys to everyone, world-wide, within just one night? And all sorts of punctually and within budget? That’s what we’re taught the Universe can do for all of us, whenever we turn it up to God/Source. Inside the book “Ask & It Really Is Given” one of many Proven Processes is catchusanta it over to the manager. Since we set our goals, it’s like delegating into a Universal Manager. So when we take a step back, and enable the Universe set things in place, we CREATE! Remember, we’re not stopping choices, we’re merely turning over every piece of information and creating our choices.
I urge you to pay attention to giving over to your Universal Manager all the stuff you sense you should do during this holiday week. You’ll believe it is amazing that since we shift our focus of reality, our reality changes. I’ve carried this out 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, while others just don’t seem very important. I’ve had times when my daughters and daughters-in-law would offer to do several of the baking. I’ve learned to simply accept help and reply using a grateful “Yes!” This method is priceless in all areas of life, not only the holidays. Legal Requirements of Attraction is unfolding and orchestrating all that must occur to bring me my desires, Now.
