challenges and difficulties
David Nelson 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 Nelson.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and David Nelson 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.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of David's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for David Nelson to sort out his true values, especially when he is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Nelson in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
His ambition and desire for power may be somewhat out of proportion and Nelson can be quite ruthless when faced with potential obstacles and difficulties. David Nelson must learn to control his temper and be willing to compromise.
He is inclined to feel inferior and may easily be taken in by others. David has to guard against being deceived or used by others, though his intentions may be good. David Nelson must not let his desire to have things cloud his ability to see what is really happening.
Nelson is aware of his own shortcomings and is able to overcome many frustrations and limitations. He concentrates on his aims and goes about achieving them, even if he has to sacrifice something in the process.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which David Nelson 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 Nelson needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for David Nelson to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. David Nelson needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until David 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 Nelson's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is deep within himself, as David Nelson faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that David Nelson keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
The following are specific activities that will support David Nelson in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Nelson, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.

Being generous with his time, energy and resources in helping others achieve a better life will in turn benefit David Nelson.
