challenges and difficulties
Powers both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Ed, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Ed Powers is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Powers.
Powers 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 Powers 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 Powers better than being with groups of his own peers.
He is inclined to be somewhat withdrawn and has a hard time discussing important matters with his family and close relationships. A serious and deep thinker, Ed Powers would like to explain his views to others, but has a difficult time finding the right words.
Ed wants to go his own way and tends to withdraw into himself. He prefers to be alone and tends to cut himself off from other people. Ed Powers could be a bit too serious and conservative.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ed Powers 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 Powers needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Ed Powers to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Ed Powers needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Ed 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 Powers' larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is deep within himself, as Ed Powers faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Ed Powers 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.
Powers always looks to establish relationships with groups or associations and has the ability to blend in unobtrusively. Ed Powers has a way of integrating others needs and feelings, at the same time realizing and considering the proceedings of the association.
