challenges and difficulties
Crosby either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. David Crosby may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times David Crosby feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
His fears revolve around money and material security, and David Crosby works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. David wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. David Crosby 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.
He is inclined to exercise self-control and tries to suppress his inner excitability or irritability. Crosby can be somewhat self-willed, though, and strive to be independent. If David Crosby feels that someone is holding him down too much, he may suddenly break up the relationship.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which David Crosby 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 David Crosby needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways David Crosby copes with stress. David Crosby also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable David Crosby to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Crosby's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
The following are specific activities that will support David Crosby in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Crosby, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). David Crosby has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. He needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. David Crosby has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.
David Crosby 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 Crosby's 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 David's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
David has an inclination to gossip and spread stories or he could be the subject of gossip himself at times. His perception of partnership and family relationships tends to be somewhat unrealistic, and David Crosby may put up a good front and pretend to have a harmonious life.
