challenges and difficulties
Kenneth Branagh has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Kenneth is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Kenneth Branagh often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Branagh's which may inhibit him a great deal. Kenneth Branagh must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Kenneth Branagh takes his commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. His strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Branagh a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but he often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between him and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Kenneth Branagh and it may seem that he is always "working on" his marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Branagh will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Kenneth Branagh 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 Kenneth Branagh needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
His natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing his situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing his situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Kenneth Branagh copes with stress. Kenneth Branagh also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
His development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Kenneth Branagh to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Branagh's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Kenneth Branagh needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The following are specific activities that will support Kenneth Branagh in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Branagh, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Kenneth Branagh 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.
Kenneth Branagh should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Kenneth Branagh 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 Kenneth Branagh'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, Kenneth may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
Kenneth Branagh's path to wholeness involves confronting his dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming himself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Branagh's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Kenneth.
He is highly emotional and tends to display his feelings in a theatrical way. Kenneth Branagh seems to enjoy being somewhat eccentric and finds it difficult to adapt himself to others. Although he may seek emotional fulfillment, Kenneth does not do well in relationships and team work.
