challenges and difficulties
Craig Bierko often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may sense both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for Bierko.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Craig from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Craig Bierko feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Bierko remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Craig Bierko needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Craig accomplish this task.
His upbringing may have been either too demanding or somewhat lax. Craig Bierko resists any attempt to restrict his freedom and has the ability to devote extraordinary efforts toward overcoming any inhibitions or difficulties that he may have.
He is inclined to be rather serious and withdrawn. As he feels very uncomfortable in the presence of others, Craig Bierko shies away from social contacts and prefers to be by himself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Craig Bierko 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 Craig Bierko needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Craig Bierko is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of him, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering his tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Craig Bierko's growth. Craig Bierko needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both himself and others. Letting himself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Craig Bierko has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Bierko will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Craig Bierko back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of his desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
