challenges and difficulties
Ed Broadbent 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 Broadbent.
Broadbent is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Ed Broadbent does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Ed Broadbent better than being with groups of his own peers.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Ed's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Ed Broadbent 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 Broadbent in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ed Broadbent 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 Ed Broadbent needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Ed Broadbent has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that he is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Ed Broadbent 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. Ed Broadbent needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Ed Broadbent has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Broadbent 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.
Ed Broadbent tends to be fascinated by new and obscure things and may be strongly attracted to the occult. He may contribute to the spontaneous forming of groups and may gain spiritual enlightenment together with others.
