Can you rely on Santa Claus? Jolly Old St. Nicholas is an important part of western society and many of us grew up with this magical icon. Recently I came upon the concept that Santa represents a unique archetype. In Jungian psychology, archetype is defined as an inherited memory represented in the mind with a universal symbol and observed in dreams and myths.
In searching for these particular symbolic images with this dear old man I found that which Santa Claus represents can also be used to motivate us in creating for 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 our dreams and wishes be realized. During this season we have been loaded with expectations, the brilliance of light-filled homes, the enjoyment of being with friends and neighbors to celebrate life, along with 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 to think that a greater 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 is going to be well.
The Caregiver archetype, however, is not within the exercise of power which is the motive, nevertheless the drive to bestow care on those that need it: the care, concern and nurturing they lack but deserve. He is about giving to others fulfilling their needs. And he will not ask for anything in turn except a cookie, glass of milk or some eggnog. He seems to be an effective guy, settling on who turns into a new Nintendo and who gets t-shirts or shoes. If we are excellent and in case we believe, Santa will guarantee we receive everything you want.
A substantial facet of Santa’s story is definitely the magical transformation from his rising up a chimney with the touch of his nose as well as his yearly trek around the world. And in addition, his flying reindeer without GPS onboard is nothing short of miraculous, indeed. He magically brings gratitude, compassion and enjoy 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 means of dealing, being and succeeding.
When we are creating our dreams, our visions, and our alternatives for 2010, let’s all remember to use our Santa Claus model in conjunction with the Law of Attraction, Creation and Allowing. As you have chosen and after that more clearly defined your choices in creating your 2010 Journey, make use of this technique to shift your beliefs and allowing of the which you desire.
Sometimes merely 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 vital component of the skill 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 Possibilities of the Universe.
Then too, we are able to liken Santa’s management skills to your universal manager. Are you able to envision him bringing toys to everyone, world-wide, in just one night? And all sorts of on time and within budget? That’s what we’re taught the Universe is capable of doing for people, whenever we turn it onto God/Source. From the book “Ask & It Really Is Given” among the Proven Processes is catchusanta it onto the manager. Since we set our goals, it’s like delegating to your Universal Manager. So that as we step back, and enable the Universe set things into position, we CREATE! Remember, we’re not quitting choices, we’re merely turning over all the details and creating our choices.
I urge you to focus on giving onto your Universal Manager everything you are feeling you have to do within this holiday week. You’ll discover 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 all the chores I feel I must do. Amazingly, some get done, some don’t, while some just don’t seem very important. I’ve had times when my daughters and daughters-in-law would offer to accomplish a few of the baking. I’ve learned to just accept help and reply using a grateful “Yes!” This process is priceless in every areas of life, not only the holidays. Legal Requirements of Attraction is unfolding and orchestrating all that must afflict bring me my desires, Now.
