Do you have confidence in Santa Claus? Jolly Old St. Nicholas is an important part of western society and many people grew up with this particular magical icon. Recently I came upon the idea that Santa represents an exclusive archetype. In Jungian psychology, archetype is defined as an inherited memory represented within the mind from a universal symbol and observed in dreams and myths.
In searching for these symbolic images with this dear old man I found that which Santa Claus stands for can also be used to motivate us in creating to the 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 our dreams and wishes be realized. In this season our company is filled with expectations, the brilliance of light-filled homes, the enjoyment being with friends and neighbors to celebrate life, as well as the joy and gratitude of giving and receiving.
I discover that put santa in your picture reflects several archetypes. He is visible within the Innocent archetype, helping us to trust, to hope as well as believe that a better day lies ahead. He 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 just not from 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 is about giving to others fulfilling the requirements. And he fails to require anything in turn except a cookie, glass of milk or some eggnog. He seems to be a powerful guy, settling on who turns into a new Nintendo and who gets t-shirts or shoes. Once we are perfect and if we think, Santa will guarantee we receive everything we want.
A substantial facet of Santa’s story may be the magical transformation from his rising up a chimney from the touch of his nose as well as his yearly trek around the world. 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 the same time. Santa will be the quintessential Magician archetype helping us transform and transcend current reality to locate new methods for dealing, being and succeeding.
As we are coming up with our dreams, our visions, and our selections for 2010, let’s all make sure you use our Santa Claus model along with the Law of Attraction, Creation and Allowing. While you have selected after which more clearly defined your alternatives in creating your 2010 Journey, use this method to shift your beliefs and allowing of this you desire.
Sometimes merely the subtle shift from viewing our images from a grownup element of trying to force, worrying over and wondering how things will alter, on the wide-eyed expectations and faith of kids. A key part of the Art 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 could liken Santa’s management techniques to your universal manager. Could you envision him bringing toys to everyone, world-wide, within just one night? And all sorts of by the due date and within budget? That’s what we’re taught the Universe are capable of doing for people, if we turn it up to God/Source. From the book “Ask & It Is Actually Given” one of many Proven Processes is catchusanta it to the manager. As we set our goals, it’s like delegating to some Universal Manager. And as we take a step back, and permit the Universe set things in place, we CREATE! Remember, we’re not giving up 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 really feel you should do during this holiday week. You’ll think it is amazing that while we shift our focus of reality, our reality changes. I’ve performed 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 some of the baking. I’ve learned to just accept help and reply using a grateful “Yes!” This method is priceless in every aspects of life, not just the holidays. What The Law States of Attraction is unfolding and orchestrating all that must eventually bring me my desires, Now.
