challenges and difficulties
Rai fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance herself or deny her needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that she will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Aishwarya Rai may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Aishwarya.
Her attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Aishwarya Rai may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to her. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Aishwarya may tenaciously cling to her grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
Her overall outlook on life is serious, and Aishwarya Rai may feel that life or God will punish her if she does not watch her steps!
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Aishwarya Rai has for her life are firmly held in check by her sense of reality. At times she may wish for more freedom, but Aishwarya also fears it and hang back. Aishwarya Rai may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Aishwarya Rai will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Aishwarya feel a little out of step with others. Aishwarya Rai takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Aishwarya feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Aishwarya Rai has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
At times Aishwarya Rai struggles with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, she may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of her mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Aishwarya Rai has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if her religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting herself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Aishwarya occasionally.
Aishwarya Rai tends to suppress her feelings and may be a bit inhibited in love relationships. Often times she may feel rejected or she may give the impression of rejecting others herself. Perhaps her mother or father has a difficult time showing their affection.
Lacking confidence in herself, Aishwarya Rai has the feeling that her luck has abandoned her. She is inclined to sit and wait for the right opportunities to come along, placing too much emphasis on wishful thinking and is disappointed when nothing happens.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Aishwarya Rai 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 Aishwarya Rai needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Aishwarya Rai to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Aishwarya Rai needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Aishwarya directs her attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Rai's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Aishwarya Rai is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Rai's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Aishwarya Rai back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Aishwarya Rai's rigid self-control overly restricts her ability to freely express herself or explore possibilities. She is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. She tends to be fearful, judgmental towards herself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside herself. Aishwarya Rai should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Rai's responsibility.
The following are specific activities that will support Aishwarya Rai in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Rai, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
She needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Aishwarya Rai has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. She needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Aishwarya Rai has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating her ability to love and to receive love.
Aishwarya Rai has a strong desire to take part in social functions and entertainment and cultivate an active exchange of thoughts with others. Aishwarya also appreciates associations and has the ability to carry enterprises to a successful conclusion in team-work.
