challenges and difficulties
Isiah Thomas has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Isiah is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack the capacity for joy and play. Isiah Thomas 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 Thomas' that may inhibit him a great deal. Isiah Thomas must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob him of the playful, imaginative side of life.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Isiah Thomas 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.
His aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Isiah Thomas pursues his aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and he is willing to take his time, advancing slowly and steadily toward his goal.
Sometimes Isiah Thomas underestimates what is possible, and holds himself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Isiah Thomas tends to suppress his feelings and may be somewhat inhibited in love relationships. He may often feel rejected or he may give the impression of rejecting others himself. Perhaps his mother or father found it difficult to express their affection.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Isiah Thomas 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 Isiah Thomas 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 Isiah Thomas copes with stress. Isiah Thomas 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 Isiah Thomas to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
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 Isiah Thomas is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Isiah Thomas needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Thomas.
The following are specific activities that will support Isiah Thomas in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Thomas, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Isiah Thomas' 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 Thomas' 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 Isiah.
