Will you believe in Santa Claus? Jolly Old St. Nicholas is an integral part of western society and a lot of us matured with this particular magical icon. Recently I came upon the notion that Santa represents a distinctive archetype. In Jungian psychology, archetype is identified as an inherited memory represented in the mind by a universal symbol and observed in dreams and myths.
While seeking for such symbolic images on this dear old man I realized that which Santa Claus means could also be used to motivate us in creating for your new year. I see him as being a fun-loving guy that can bring us joy, love, excitement and happiness. It’s said he makes all of our dreams and wishes become a reality. Within this season we have been loaded with expectations, the brilliance of light-filled homes, the enjoyment to be with friends and neighbors to celebrate life, as well as the joy and gratitude of giving and receiving.
I discover that capture the magic santa reflects several archetypes. He is seen from the Innocent archetype, helping us to trust, to hope and to assume that a 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 every will likely be well.
The Caregiver archetype, however, is not really within the exercise of power this is the motive, although the drive to bestow care on people who need it: the care, concern and nurturing they lack but deserve. He or she is about giving to others fulfilling their requirements. And then he fails to demand anything in return except a cookie, glass of milk or some eggnog. He appears to be an effective guy, settling on who turns into a new Nintendo and who gets t-shirts or shoes. When we are perfect and in case we think, Santa will assure we get everything we want.
A substantial facet of Santa’s story will be the magical transformation from his rising up a chimney by the touch of his nose as well as his yearly trek around the globe. And on top of 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 is the quintessential Magician archetype helping us transform and transcend current reality to get new ways of dealing, being and succeeding.
While we are creating our dreams, our visions, and our alternatives for 2010, let’s all be sure you use our Santa Claus model along with the Law of Attraction, Creation and Allowing. When you have chosen after which more clearly defined the options in creating your 2010 Journey, make use of this strategy to shift your beliefs and allowing of the that you simply desire.
Sometimes just the subtle shift from viewing our images from a grownup aspect of attempting to force, worrying over and wondering how things will alter, for the wide-eyed expectations and faith of kids. A key component of the ability of Allowing is to let go and let God. Releasing our attachment to old beliefs, ideas and teachings allows us to available to the Infinite Likelihood of the Universe.
Then too, we are able to liken Santa’s management techniques into a universal manager. Can you envision him bringing toys to everyone, world-wide, within 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, if we turn it over to God/Source. From the book “Ask & It Is Given” one of several Proven Processes is catchusanta it up to the manager. While we set our goals, it’s like delegating to some Universal Manager. And also as 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 detail and creating our choices.
I urge you to concentrate on giving to your Universal Manager all the stuff you really feel you want to do during this holiday week. You’ll think it is amazing that as 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 very important. I’ve had occasions when my daughters and daughters-in-law would offer to do a number of the baking. I’ve learned to simply accept help and reply with a grateful “Yes!” This technique is priceless in every aspects of life, not simply the holidays. Legislation of Attraction is unfolding and orchestrating all that must happen to bring me my desires, Now.
