challenges and difficulties
Breton both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to André, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. André Breton is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Breton.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and André Breton works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. André wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. André Breton becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and his occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which André Breton 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 André Breton needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Breton's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
André Breton has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. André Breton should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The following are specific activities that will support André Breton in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Breton, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
André Breton should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put himself "out there", be seen and shine. André needs to be willing to take on a leading role. He needs to be a hero - a protagonist in his own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities he possesses. Doing creative work that he is proud of - anything that comes from Breton's heart and bears the stamp of Breton's individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than he is a way for André Breton to grow and become more whole himself.
Breton is somewhat shy and tends to feel inferior when he is with others. André Breton is inclined to establish relationships more with weak or sick people and is always willing to help or take care of them.
