challenges and difficulties
Elvis has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Presley.
He is serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly, personal interchanges.
Elvis Presley tries to be strictly accurate and he is critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little about. Presley withholds his thoughts and opinions until he has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Elvis' silence discomforts others.
His mental concentration is very good but his breadth of understanding may not be.
Elvis Presley tends to be his own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of himself and harshly criticizing or persecuting himself when he does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in his life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Elvis' belief that he must struggle alone.
He is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Elvis Presley develops his power and inner strength. However, Elvis Presley should not make life harder than it is. He must give himself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that he is only human.
Presley knows 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 for it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Elvis Presley 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 Elvis Presley needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Elvis Presley's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Presley's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Presley's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Presley's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Presley's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Elvis Presley needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Presley's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Elvis Presley needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Elvis Presley should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Elvis Presley in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Presley, and often there is some feeling of resistance or initial awkwardness about doing these things, but they are important on his path to wholeness.
He needs to give and receive affection, love, and pleasure (especially using the qualities described previously). Elvis Presley has to learn to respond to, appreciate, and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. He needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Elvis Presley has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships, and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.
