challenges and difficulties
Mickie James has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way James knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Mickie James may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Mickie must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
She is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with her duty, her public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Mickie James understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and she is capable of much self-discipline and patience once she sets her sights on a goal.
But Mickie James is very judgmental and hard on herself if she fails to attain success, and she can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize her efforts.
Mickie James strives and struggles a great deal with her ideals or spiritual aspirations. She may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or she may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, she can never quite divorce herself from her idealistic concerns.
She is subject to rash decisions and impulsive actions that may have sudden, unexpected consequences and undesirable results. As she lacks the capacity to adapt, Mickie James may encounter considerable tension in her relationships and is likely to have disputes or even violent fights with others.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Mickie James instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Mickie James needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Mickie James copes with stress. Mickie James also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Mickie James to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in her public life and career that Mickie James is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact James' reputation and standing in her community or professional circle, as well as how Mickie James achieves her important life goals and aspirations.
The following are specific activities that will support Mickie James in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to James, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Mickie James should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put herself "out there", be seen and shine. Mickie needs to be willing to take on a leading role. She needs to be a hero - a protagonist in her own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities she possesses. Doing creative work that she is proud of - anything that comes from James' heart and bears the stamp of James' individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than she is a way for Mickie James to grow and become more whole herself.
She needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Mickie James has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships.
