challenges and difficulties
Michael Beck has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. He is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that he discourages himself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Beck knows it should be done.
He frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Michael Beck may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Michael must learn that he does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax his unnecessarily high or strict standards.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Michael from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Michael Beck feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as Beck 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, Michael Beck needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Michael accomplish this task.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Michael Beck 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 Michael Beck needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Michael Beck - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Beck tends to look outside himself for approval or answers, and he leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge his own path through life is a key factor in his self-development.
Michael Beck is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about his intentions or desires, and he can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Beck's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Michael Beck needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is deep within himself, as Michael Beck faces his own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of his life that Michael Beck keeps hidden from public view where he is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
The following are specific activities that will support Michael Beck in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Beck, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Michael Beck 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.
Michael Beck should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Michael Beck 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 Michael Beck'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, Michael may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
