challenges and difficulties
Fiennes 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. Joseph Fiennes 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 Joseph Fiennes feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Joseph from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Joseph Fiennes feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Fiennes remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Joseph Fiennes needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Joseph accomplish this task.
He may frequently feel hindered or oppressed by other people and may suddenly join forces with others in order to overcome difficulties. Joseph Fiennes seems to be afraid of his own courage and may find it hard to express his desires.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Joseph Fiennes 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 Joseph Fiennes 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 Fiennes' 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.
Joseph Fiennes 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!
It is in his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Joseph Fiennes needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Joseph Fiennes should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Joseph Fiennes in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Fiennes, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Joseph Fiennes 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.
Joseph Fiennes should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Joseph Fiennes 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 Joseph Fiennes' 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, Joseph may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
