challenges and difficulties
Alec Baldwin has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Baldwin is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Alec Baldwin takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
It may be difficult for Alec Baldwin to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Alec may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Alec Baldwin also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Alec Baldwin instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Alec Baldwin needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Alec Baldwin becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Alec Baldwin needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. Baldwin also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Alec Baldwin tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Baldwin's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Alec Baldwin needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Alec Baldwin back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Excessive thinking, rationalizing, talking, and overuse or misuse of Baldwin's intellectual abilities, as well as dissipating Baldwin's energy in trivial activities.
The following are specific activities that will support Alec Baldwin in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Baldwin, and often there is some feeling of resistance or initial awkwardness about doing these things, but they are important on his path to wholeness.
Alec Baldwin should develop faith and confidence both in him and in a higher power which can guide, nourish, and help him. He needs to expand his willingness to dream and envision better things in life by studying religion, philosophy, and other subjects that enable him to see a larger, more inclusive view of his and the world.
Being generous with his time, energy and resources in helping others achieve a better life will in turn benefit Alec Baldwin.
Alec Baldwin should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and the underlying unity, by involving himself in generous and charitable activities, and by opening up his psychic channels. Meditation practices that develop Baldwin's intuitive abilities, and learning about the unseen side of life through his own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Alec's path.
Also, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
Alec Baldwin tends to be a bit too idealistic and may place too much hope on his relationships, resulting in frequent disappointments. Alec could be attracted to naive people, but some of his contacts also may turn out to be swindlers.
