challenges and difficulties
Seal has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave him feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with his peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Seal.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Seal may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Seal may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and Seal may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his step!
Seal strives and struggles a great deal with his ideals or spiritual aspirations. He may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or he may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, he can never quite divorce himself from his idealistic concerns.
His disposition is somewhat melancholic and Seal may have a rather pessimistic outlook. Seal has an inner need to be alone and to engage in deep meditation. Seal takes life seriously and may have been taught early on to learn from his mistakes.
When he is with others, Seal may often suddenly become inhibited. He is inclined to be afraid of confrontations and probably will avoid group activities as much as possible.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Seal 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 Seal needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Seal is apt to shut off the flow of his emotions and ignore his needs and feelings in order to do what he perceives as his duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of him, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering his tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Seal's growth. Seal needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both himself and others. Letting himself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in his dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Seal needs to integrate in tangible ways: how he makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what he does with the resources he has. Seal should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
Seal has a sympathetic understanding of other people and the ability to easily adapt himself to them. His emotional fulfillment is likely to come through his relationships with others and Seal will probably feel a soul-affinity with many of them.
He may have an inner fear of separation and could feel left out or ignored at times. Either Seal did not receive much affection while he was growing up or it had to be shared with others. Seal may find it difficult to show his love in his relationships.
