challenges and difficulties
Gabriel Byrne has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Byrne knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Gabriel Byrne may be something of a hypochondriac also. Gabriel must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Gabriel Byrne works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Gabriel Byrne 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 Gabriel Byrne needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Gabriel Byrne - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Byrne tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Gabriel Byrne is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Byrne's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Gabriel Byrne needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Gabriel Byrne is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Gabriel Byrne needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Byrne.
The following are specific activities that will support Gabriel Byrne in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Byrne, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Gabriel Byrne should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. He needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with his family or a community that can support him and give him a sense of safety and belonging.
Gabriel Byrne should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Gabriel Byrne has to learn to trust his own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. He needs to care for himself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Gabriel Byrne's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from his past and use it in a new way. (If he is so inclined, Gabriel may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Gabriel Byrne 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.
