challenges and difficulties
Donald Sutherland often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Sutherland.
Donald Sutherland takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Donald can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Donald Sutherland is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Sutherland can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Donald's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Donald Sutherland 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 Sutherland in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
His vitality tends to be a bit low and Donald may have to fight against the tendency to be inactive. Easily discouraged, Donald Sutherland is inclined toward pessimism. Perhaps his upbringing was too authoritative, causing problems in his relationships with his parents.
He is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, Donald Sutherland may withdraw from situations and people periodically.
Basically shy, Sutherland tends to be somewhat inhibited in love relationships and may feel uncomfortable or awkward expressing his love for someone. Donald Sutherland longs for love relationships and dreams about love, but he is also inclined to torment himself because of a seeming lack of affection.
He is not afraid of hard work and leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of his objectives. Donald Sutherland has a strong desire to overcome any difficulties or obstacles in his way and will do this at all cost, even if it means having to use force.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Donald Sutherland 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 Donald Sutherland needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Donald Sutherland has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Donald Sutherland needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, he has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, he may encourage others to depend on him emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Donald Sutherland needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Sutherland's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Donald Sutherland needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Donald Sutherland back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being excessively egocentric or proud, needing personal recognition and applause, wanting to be center stage all the time, needing to be important and special.
Staying in relationships with domineering, controlling, abusive people or being manipulative. Donald sometimes abuses his own power to use others to his own selfish ends.
