challenges and difficulties
Aaliyah has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Haughton knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Aaliyah may be something of a hypochondriac also. Aaliyah must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
It may be difficult for Aaliyah to play spontaneously or just let her hair down, for she tends to inhibit that side of her by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression she is making.
Aaliyah may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for she wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though she may indeed be outstanding, Aaliyah also needs to learn to relax and enjoy herself more.
She is inclined to be somewhat withdrawn and has a hard time discussing important matters with her family and close relationships. A serious and deep thinker, Aaliyah would like to explain her views to others, but has a difficult time finding the right words.
At times circumstances seem to be pushing against Aaliyah, and she may have to withstand severe challenges. Aaliyah will probably have to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning her hard and cold hearted in her decisions because of it.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Aaliyah instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that she is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for her. The direction Aaliyah needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Aaliyah copes with stress. Aaliyah also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Aaliyah to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
The arena she is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Aaliyah should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials she feels she possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The following are specific activities that will support Aaliyah in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Haughton, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Aaliyah should foster self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility. She may shoulder an inordinate amount of responsibility as well as burdens that sometimes limit Haughton's activities and opportunities in life. However, this is a maturing and ultimately empowering process. She is also likely to be offered positions of tremendous responsibility, whether Aaliyah really wants such jobs or not, usually because she has invested real effort and made some sort of substantial contribution.
There may be considerable obstacles in her path - more adversity than others seem to face - and Haughton's task is to learn to cope with pressure and persevere.
