challenges and difficulties
Andrew Lawrence has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Lawrence is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Andrew Lawrence takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Andrew. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Andrew Lawrence is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Lawrence wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Andrew wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Andrew Lawrence 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.
His vitality tends to be a bit low and Andrew may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, Andrew Lawrence is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps his upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in his relationships with his parents.
Andrew Lawrence tends to suppress his feelings and may be a bit inhibited in love relationships. Often times he may feel rejected or he may give the impression of rejecting others himself. Perhaps his mother or father has a difficult time showing their affection.
Andrew Lawrence tends to be somewhat gloomy and may feel that life is difficult and that his will is blocked in some way. Andrew could find it hard to make decisions and to concentrate on his goals and may consider them not worthwhile.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Andrew Lawrence 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 Andrew Lawrence 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 Lawrence'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.
Andrew Lawrence 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!
It is deep within himself, as Andrew Lawrence faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Andrew Lawrence keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
