challenges and difficulties
Dahl both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know her intimately does not come easily to Arlene, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Arlene Dahl is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Dahl.
Her childhood or her relationship with her parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent Arlene from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Arlene Dahl feels that she was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether she actually was or not. Her early life - at least as Dahl remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of her needs and feelings. 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, Arlene Dahl needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Arlene accomplish this task.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Arlene Dahl 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 Arlene Dahl needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Arlene Dahl's path lies in her development as an individual, the discovery of her own strengths and joys, the capacity to express her uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Dahl's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Arlene Dahl is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, she may believe that striving to do her personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Arlene should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Arlene Dahl can offer the world at large.
It is deep within herself, as Arlene Dahl faces her own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of her life that Arlene Dahl keeps hidden from public view where she is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
