challenges and difficulties
John Tesh takes his personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort, and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing. He may feel that relationships in general require more of him than they are worth, and John enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. John Tesh also fears entrapment in close relationships.
He may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if John Tesh does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend himself from its dangers and its unknowns. John Tesh must learn to overcome his ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which John Tesh 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 Tesh needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
John Tesh's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Tesh's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Tesh's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Tesh's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Tesh's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, John Tesh needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Tesh's unique gifts can benefit others.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. John Tesh should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold John Tesh back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Staying in relationships with domineering, controlling, abusive people or being manipulative. John sometimes abuses his own power to use others to his own selfish ends.
The following are specific activities that will support John Tesh in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Tesh, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
John Tesh 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.
John Tesh should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. John Tesh 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 John Tesh'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, John may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
