challenges and difficulties
Jim Henson often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Henson.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Jim Henson 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, Jim 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 Jim Henson may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
Jim has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Jim Henson needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Henson will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Jim's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Jim Henson to sort out his true values, especially when he is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Henson in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jim Henson 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 Jim Henson needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Jim Henson to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. Jim Henson needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Jim directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Henson's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Henson's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
The following are specific activities that will support Jim Henson in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Henson, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Jim Henson 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.
Jim Henson should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Jim Henson 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 Jim Henson'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, Jim may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
