challenges and difficulties
Isaak both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know him intimately does not come easily to Chris, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Chris Isaak 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 Isaak.
He is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Chris Isaak tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Isaak withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Chris' silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Chris has an inner conflict between idealism, hope and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. Chris Isaak needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Isaak will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Once he decides what he wants to do, Chris Isaak will pursue his goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for his deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Chris feel a little out of step with others. Chris Isaak takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Chris feels and how driven he is about the things that are important to him. Chris Isaak has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to him, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Chris Isaak 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 Chris Isaak needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Chris Isaak to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Chris Isaak needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Chris directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Isaak's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Chris Isaak is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Isaak's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
