challenges and difficulties
Charlie Murphy has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Charlie is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Charlie Murphy often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Murphy's that may inhibit him a great deal. Charlie Murphy must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
He is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Charlie Murphy tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Murphy withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Charlie's silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Charlie Murphy 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 Charlie Murphy needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Charlie stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Charlie Murphy has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Charlie Murphy feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Charlie Murphy calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Charlie Murphy needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Charlie Murphy between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Charlie Murphy seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Murphy's task.
The following are specific activities that will support Charlie Murphy in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Murphy, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Charlie Murphy should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. He needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with his family or a community that can support him and give him a sense of safety and belonging.
Charlie Murphy should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Charlie Murphy has to learn to trust his own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. He needs to care for himself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Charlie Murphy's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from his past and use it in a new way. (If he is so inclined, Charlie may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
