Growth for a Six comes when they become more trusting in themselves and more open to life and others. Empathizing with others; seeing the view of others even though it may be foreign to their own view. Also, learning to relax, be present in the moment and not be so hyper-vigilant. For Sixes, your relationship with fear is also a helpful indicator of health. Is fear controlling you by making you afraid of everything and everyone? Or, are you able to use discernment with these instincts so that you can tell when there is clear danger and when there’s not?
Growth Areas for the Six:
Try to relax and be calm before talking about issues
Analyze your thoughts and see which are insight and which are projection
Be open to views other than your own
Be less defensive, evasive and anxious; especially when stressed
Embrace the feelings that typically cause self-doubt and suspicion
Rely on yourself for guidance and support
Think before questioning or defying authority
Take a chance on fighting for yourself before fighting for your beliefs
Use your internal resources to handle life’s challenges rather than relying on outside support
Be confident in your own mind and judgment
Ask yourself when you will have enough security
DEVELOP A NEW MINDSET:
You always pride yourself in being cautious because you want to avoid being exploited in any way.
What if you found more ways to be more self-confident in your own ability to discern the truth in order to limit the times you feel anxious?
TAKING TIME FOR YOU:
Stop using self sabotaging behavior. It limits your happiness. As a Six, your fear that you are not capable enough to provide for yourself tends to influence your behavior. However, don’t forget that the more you doubt yourself, the more you begin to question the abilities and behaviors of others. This limits the strength of your relationships.
Creating a Boundary Circle works especially well for Type Twos and Type Sixes. Determine your time and energy, create a “boundary circle,” and then visualize your needs.
