challenges and difficulties
Amoo both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Ryan, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Ryan Amoo is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Amoo.
Amoo 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 Ryan Amoo 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 Ryan Amoo better than being with groups of his own peers.
He is suspicious of groups, crowds, and social organizations. Amoo is quick to pick up on social charades and insincerity and avoids the limelight and glamour. Ryan Amoo is direct and to the point in speech and manner, stubborn and inflexible, and often unwilling to communicate his innermost feelings and thoughts.
He is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, Ryan Amoo may withdraw from situations and people periodically.
Ryan dislikes tense or frustrating situations and has a strong desire to free himself from them. Acting quickly at times, Ryan suddenly overcomes his inner inhibitions. Ryan Amoo also has the ability to grasp difficult situations correctly and to use them for his advancement.
He is inclined to be somewhat withdrawn and has a hard time discussing important matters with his family and close relationships. A serious and deep thinker, Ryan Amoo would like to explain his views to others, but has a difficult time finding the right words.
Although Ryan Amoo generally is happy, at times he could become a bit inhibited and because of this, he may let good opportunities slip by occasionally. Although he is interested in people, Amoo also tends to seek seclusion periodically.
Ryan Amoo strongly rebels against any restrictions and may have the desire to break away, over-throwing all thought of responsibility. On the other hand, limitations in his live also could suddenly pass away, leaving Amoo free to do his own thing.
Ryan tries to build his life on solid ground, but may find it difficult to move forward, because he always tends to look back. This could result in feelings of inferiority and periodic moods of depression.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ryan Amoo 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 Ryan Amoo needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Ryan Amoo needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Ryan's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Amoo's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Ryan Amoo to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Ryan Amoo is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Ryan Amoo needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in his marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. He may see the qualities that he needs to develop more fully (described above) in his partner. It is important for Ryan Amoo to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in his life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them himself. Ryan Amoo has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about himself through others.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Ryan Amoo 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.
Ryan Amoo tends to be a bit too idealistic and may place too much hope on his relationships, resulting in frequent disappointments. Ryan could be attracted to naive people, but some of his contacts also may turn out to be swindlers.
Ryan Amoo tends to be fascinated by new and obscure things and may be strongly attracted to the occult. He may contribute to spontaneous forming of groups and could gain spiritual enlightenment together with other people.
