Do you have faith in Santa Claus? Jolly Old St. Nicholas is a fundamental element of western society and most of us grew up with this magical icon. Recently I came upon the notion that Santa represents a unique archetype. In Jungian psychology, archetype is described as an inherited memory represented from the mind by way of a universal symbol and observed in dreams and myths.
In searching for these particular symbolic images on this dear old man I realized that which Santa Claus represents can also be used to motivate us in creating for your 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 of our dreams and wishes be realized. Within this season we are filled 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 realize that capture the magic reflects several archetypes. He is seen inside the Innocent archetype, helping us to trust, to hope as well as to think that a better day lies ahead. He is clearly driven by faith and trust, bring that hope and giving us that faith along with 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 those who require it: the care, concern and nurturing they lack but deserve. He or she is about giving to others fulfilling their requirements. And that he is not going to require anything in exchange except a cookie, glass of milk or some eggnog. He appears to be a strong guy, settling on who receives a new Nintendo and who gets t-shirts or shoes. When we are excellent and in case we feel, Santa will guarantee we have everything we wish.
A tremendous element of Santa’s story will be the magical transformation from his rising up a chimney from the touch of his nose in addition to his yearly trek world wide. And besides that, his flying reindeer without GPS onboard is literally miraculous, indeed. He magically brings gratitude, compassion and enjoy to all, one child’s heart at any given time. Santa will be the quintessential Magician archetype helping us transform and transcend current reality to locate new methods of dealing, being and succeeding.
When we are creating our dreams, our visions, and our selections 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 chosen after which more clearly defined your alternatives in creating your 2010 Journey, make use of this technique to shift your beliefs and allowing of that particular that you desire.
Sometimes simply the subtle shift from viewing our images from a grownup part of looking to force, worrying over and wondering how things will change, towards the wide-eyed expectations and faith of kids. A vital aspect of the skill of Allowing is to let go and let God. Releasing our attachment to old beliefs, ideas and teachings permits us to accessible to the Infinite Likelihood of the Universe.
Then too, we are able to liken Santa’s management skills to your universal manager. Can you envision him bringing toys to everyone, world-wide, in just one night? And all of on time and within budget? That’s what we’re taught the Universe are capable of doing for people like us, once we change it onto God/Source. Inside the book “Ask & It Is Actually Given” one of many Proven Processes is catchusanta it onto the manager. Since we set our goals, it’s like delegating to a Universal Manager. So when we take a step back, and allow the Universe set things set up, we CREATE! Remember, we’re not giving up choices, we’re merely turning over every piece of information and creating our choices.
I urge you to target giving onto your Universal Manager everything you sense you have to do during this holiday week. You’ll believe it is amazing that when 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 have to do. Amazingly, some get done, some don’t, while some just don’t seem so important. I’ve had times when my daughters and daughters-in-law would offer to do several of the baking. I’ve learned to just accept help and reply by using a grateful “Yes!” This method is priceless in all facets of life, not just the holidays. Legislation of Attraction is unfolding and orchestrating all that needs to occur to bring me my desires, Now.
