Can you have confidence in Santa Claus? Jolly Old St. Nicholas is an important part of western society and a lot of us grew up using this type of 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 in the mind by a universal symbol and observed in dreams and myths.
In searching for these particular symbolic images of this dear old man I realized that which Santa Claus is short for could also be used to motivate us in creating to the new year. I see him like a fun-loving guy that literally brings us joy, love, excitement and happiness. It’s said he makes all of our dreams and wishes be realized. During this season we are filled with expectations, the brilliance of light-filled homes, the fun to be with friends and neighbors to celebrate life, and the joy and gratitude of giving and receiving.
I realize that put santa in your picture reflects several archetypes. He can be viewed inside the Innocent archetype, helping us to trust, to hope and also to feel that a much better 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 all will probably be well.
The Caregiver archetype, however, is not in the exercise of power this is the motive, but the drive to bestow care on people who require it: the care, concern and nurturing they lack but deserve. He is about giving to others fulfilling their requirements. And the man does not request anything in turn except a cookie, glass of milk or some eggnog. He appear to be an effective guy, settling on who turns into a new Nintendo and who gets t-shirts or shoes. If we are great and if we know, Santa will guarantee we obtain everything we want.
A substantial facet of Santa’s story will be the magical transformation from his rising up a chimney with the touch of his nose along with his yearly trek around the world. And besides that, his flying reindeer without GPS onboard is nothing short of miraculous, indeed. He magically brings gratitude, compassion and like to all, one child’s heart at a time. Santa will be the quintessential Magician archetype helping us transform and transcend current reality to find new methods for dealing, being and succeeding.
When we are coming up with our dreams, our visions, and our selections for 2010, let’s all make sure to use our Santa Claus model along with the Law of Attraction, Creation and Allowing. When you have selected then more clearly defined your alternatives in creating your 2010 Journey, use this technique to shift your beliefs and allowing of that particular that you desire.
Sometimes only the subtle shift from viewing our images from a grownup part of seeking to force, worrying over and wondering how things will alter, for the wide-eyed expectations and faith of kids. An important component of the ability of Allowing is usually to let go and let God. Releasing our attachment to old beliefs, ideas and teachings permits us to ready to accept the Infinite Possibilities of the Universe.
Then too, we can easily liken Santa’s management techniques to your universal manager. Can you envision him bringing toys to everyone, world-wide, in just one night? And all sorts of punctually and within budget? That’s what we’re taught the Universe is capable of doing for people like us, whenever we transform it up to God/Source. From the book “Ask & It Is Given” one of many Proven Processes is catchusanta it to the manager. As we set our goals, it’s like delegating to a Universal Manager. So when we step back, and allow the Universe set things in position, we CREATE! Remember, we’re not giving up choices, we’re merely turning over all the details and creating our choices.
I urge you to focus on giving over to your Universal Manager all the stuff you sense you want to do in this holiday week. You’ll find it 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, and some just don’t seem essential. I’ve had instances when my daughters and daughters-in-law would offer to accomplish some of the baking. I’ve learned to take help and reply with a grateful “Yes!” This technique is priceless in all of the elements of life, not only the holidays. The Law of Attraction is unfolding and orchestrating all that must eventually bring me my desires, Now.
