challenges and difficulties
Balmain doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Pierre is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for him.
Balmain is generally not a "joiner" and he does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Pierre Balmain does participate in a group, he may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or he may simply feel that he does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Pierre Balmain better than being with groups of his own peers.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Pierre Balmain 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 Pierre Balmain 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 Balmain's 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.
Pierre Balmain 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 fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Pierre Balmain is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Pierre Balmain needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Balmain.
The following are specific activities that will support Pierre Balmain in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Balmain, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Pierre Balmain 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.
Pierre Balmain should develop his listening skills and deepen his understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Pierre Balmain 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 Pierre Balmain'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, Pierre may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts he has already developed).
