challenges and difficulties
Lionel Barrymore often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something he cannot name or specify, and he may sense both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over sensitivity is an important task for Barrymore.
It may be difficult for Lionel Barrymore to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
Lionel may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, Lionel Barrymore also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
The side of Lionel Barrymore that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension as a result, and at times Lionel finds it hard to relax. Lionel Barrymore may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses. Barrymore's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in his life.
Lionel Barrymore has a tendency to feel inadequate, perhaps even unlovable, and he tends to withdraw from others. Consequently, Barrymore may feel lonely and out of touch with everyone, and that he has no support from anyone.
He may frequently feel hindered or oppressed by other people and may suddenly join forces with others in order to overcome difficulties. Lionel Barrymore 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 Lionel Barrymore 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 Lionel Barrymore needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Lionel Barrymore's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Barrymore's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Barrymore's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Barrymore'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?" Barrymore's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Lionel Barrymore needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Barrymore's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Barrymore's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Lionel Barrymore needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Lionel Barrymore back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of his desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
Lionel Barrymore is not in the least bit selfish and he has the ability to share the joy he feels with other people. Lionel seems to have a gift for getting more reserved people to open up, teaching them how to give and receive love and affection.
