challenges and difficulties
Ted McGinley has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. McGinley is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Ted McGinley takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
His childhood or his relationship with his parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Ted from allowing other people to get close to him in later life. Ted McGinley feels that he was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether he actually was or not. His early life - at least as McGinley remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of his needs and feelings. 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, Ted McGinley needs to build his own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into his home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Ted accomplish this task.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ted McGinley 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 Ted McGinley needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
He is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on his path, but when under stress Ted McGinley becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what he has, he is apt to ignore the subtle signals he receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Ted McGinley needs to learn the limits of his ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for him. McGinley also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward his appetites and desires, as Ted McGinley tends to overindulge and/or deny himself excessively.
It is in his way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Ted McGinley is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In McGinley's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, he needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Ted McGinley back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in his life.
The following are specific activities that will support Ted McGinley in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to McGinley, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
Ted McGinley should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up his psychic channels. Meditation that develops McGinley's intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through his own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Ted's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to him.
He is a born leader and has the ability to persuade members of a group or association he belongs to. McGinley always promotes the fostering of good fellowship and teamwork, which ensures the success of any plans or joint undertakings he may pursue.
He is very social and his relationships with others are very warm and expansive. It is essential for Ted's emotional welfare to be surrounded by people and he is an active member of groups or associations he belongs to.
