challenges and difficulties
Eddie Murphy has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Eddie is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Eddie Murphy often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Murphy's which may inhibit him a great deal. Eddie Murphy must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Eddie Murphy takes both his work and his health very seriously, but he may demand so much of his at work that he compromise his health. Eddie can become a workaholic, not so much because he has lofty ambitions, but because he never feels like he has done enough. Eddie Murphy is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that he may not enjoy it at all.
Murphy can also get overly involved in self-improvement or his health, and he tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Eddie Murphy pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and he is willing to takes his time, advancing slowly and steadily on his way towards his goal.
Sometimes Eddie Murphy underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Eddie could find it difficult to express himself and consequently he feels inhibited and lonely at times. He tends to isolate himself from others and his relationships seem strained. Conditions in Eddie Murphy's parental home may be oppressive and constrained.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Eddie Murphy 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 Eddie Murphy 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 Eddie Murphy copes with stress. Eddie Murphy 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 Eddie Murphy to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within Eddie Murphy between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. Eddie Murphy seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Murphy's task.
The following are specific activities that will support Eddie Murphy in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Murphy, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Eddie Murphy's path to wholeness involves confronting his dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming himself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Murphy's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Eddie.
Eddie Murphy seems to be a loner, rather serious and quiet. Perhaps he is burdened by family conditions that weigh him down. Eddie prefers to associate with older or more authoritative people and is happier in a subordinate position.
