challenges and difficulties
Hamburg either overvalues or undervalues his possessions and assets. He can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. John Hamburg may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times John Hamburg feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague John. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, John Hamburg is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Hamburg wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which John Hamburg 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 John Hamburg needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Hamburg's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and he can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
John Hamburg has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. He should let his feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use his imagination and let his dreams emerge!
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. John Hamburg should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
