challenges and difficulties
Freud doubts his own intelligence and mental capacities, and he may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Sigmund 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.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Sigmund. He strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for him.
On another level entirely, Sigmund Freud is very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Freud wants to keep his own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Sigmund has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Sigmund Freud needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve his aspirations. Freud will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
He is inclined to feel inferior and may easily be taken in by others. Sigmund has to guard against being deceived or used by others, though his intentions may be good. Sigmund Freud must not let his desire to have things cloud his ability to see what is really happening.
Freud knows his own shortcomings and is able to overcome many frustrations and limitations. He concentrates on his aims and goes about achieving them, even if he has to sacrifice something for it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Sigmund Freud 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 Sigmund Freud 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 Sigmund Freud - so much so that he seeks them out at his own expense. When he is under stress, Freud 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.
Sigmund Freud 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 Freud's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Sigmund Freud needs to cultivate his ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on his own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in his work and his relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Freud's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
The following are specific activities that will support Sigmund Freud in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Freud, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
He needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Sigmund Freud has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. He needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Sigmund Freud has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.
He is very social minded and it is easy for Sigmund Freud to show his affection. His family or community probably provided good possibilities for his development. Freud may love to show off a little and he thrives on being involved with others in joyful group activities.
He enjoys relationships with others who can tune into the spiritual world and Sigmund Freud is likely to join groups or associations that sponsor psychics and that explore the connection with karmic influences.
He is gay and cheerful in the company of others and happy to be with them. Sigmund Freud is fond of telling jokes and is likely to entertain everyone. His relationships with others are inclined to be for a common purpose.
