challenges and difficulties
Chet Atkins takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and Chet enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Chet Atkins also fears entrapment in close relationships.
Chet Atkins takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Chet can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Chet Atkins is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Atkins can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
He is likely to have very intense experiences in his emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Chet Atkins could be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Chet Atkins 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 Chet Atkins needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Chet Atkins' path lies in his development as an individual, the discovery of his own strengths and joys, the capacity to express his uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Atkins' instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Chet Atkins is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, he may believe that striving to do his personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Chet should let go of this notion. Finding his own center and doing what gives him delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Chet Atkins can offer the world at large.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Atkins' inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Chet Atkins needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Chet Atkins back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
The following are specific activities that will support Chet Atkins in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Atkins, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Chet Atkins should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up his psychic channels. Meditation that develops Atkins' intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through his own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Chet's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
