challenges and difficulties
Jesse James often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may sense both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for James.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Jesse James may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Jesse may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Jesse James may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jesse James 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 Jesse James needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively he is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Jesse stands alone when he does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Jesse James has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that he must be self-reliant and that only he can come up with the answers he needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate him from others, or make Jesse James feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Jesse James calls social "games" do not come naturally to him. Jesse James needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in trying to strike a balance between James' inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Jesse James needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The following are specific activities that will support Jesse James in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to James, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Jesse James 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. Jesse James has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.
Jesse James tends to associate with weak or negative people and is inclined to find most of his relationships rather unfulfilling. Feeling like an outsider, James gets the impression that others try to restrain him.
