challenges and difficulties
Annette Bening has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Bening is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Annette Bening takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Annette from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Annette Bening felt deprived in some manner, whether or not she actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of her needs and feelings may typify her early life, at least as Bening remembers it. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Annette Bening needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Annette accomplish this.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Annette Bening 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 Annette Bening needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
She is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on her path, but when under stress Annette Bening 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 she has, she is apt to ignore the subtle signals she receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Annette Bening needs to learn the limits of her 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 her. Bening also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Annette Bening tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Annette Bening is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Bening'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 Annette Bening back, or which she 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 her life.
The following are specific activities that will support Annette Bening in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Bening, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Annette Bening should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. She needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with her family or a community that can support her and give her a sense of safety and belonging.
Annette Bening should develop her listening skills and deepen her understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Annette Bening has to learn to trust her own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. She needs to care for herself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Annette Bening's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from her past and use it in a new way. (If she is so inclined, Annette may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts she has already developed).
Annette Bening should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up her psychic channels. Meditation that develops Bening's intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through her own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Annette's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to her.
She is a born leader and has the ability to persuade members of a group or association she belongs to. Bening always promotes the cultivation of good fellowship and teamwork, insuring success in any plans or joint undertakings she may pursue.
Because of rigid and somewhat unpleasant family relationships, Annette Bening is inclined to seclude herself from others. She may prefer to live in archaic surroundings and could be interested in antiques.
