Spike Jonze may deny himself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of his labors. He may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Spike Jonze feels that he does not have "enough" to make him feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) he has!
His childhood or his relationships with his parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Spike from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Spike Jonze felt deprived in some manner, whether or not he actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of his needs and feelings may typify his early life, at least as Jonze remembers it. Forgiving his parents and/or letting go of any resentments he has about the limitations that he experienced early in his life is crucial. Also, Spike Jonze needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Spike accomplish this.
The side of Spike Jonze that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with his urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension due to this, and at times Spike finds it hard to relax. Spike Jonze may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on himself, in an attempt to strictly control his "wild" impulses.

Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Spike Jonze 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 Spike Jonze 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 Jonze'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.
Spike Jonze 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!
