challenges and difficulties
Arlene Francis often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something she cannot name or specify, and she may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Francis.
Her fears revolve around money and material security, and Arlene Francis works very hard to ensure that her assets are solid. She may be very conservative, even stingy, with her money because she is afraid there will not be enough. She may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Arlene Francis will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Arlene feel a little out of step with others. Arlene Francis 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 Arlene feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Arlene Francis 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.
Although Arlene Francis generally is happy, at times she could become a bit inhibited and because of this, she may let good opportunities slip by occasionally. Although she is interested in people, Francis also tends to seek seclusion periodically.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Arlene Francis 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 Francis needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Arlene Francis is apt to shut off the flow of her emotions and ignore her needs and feelings in order to do what she perceives as her duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of her, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering her tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Arlene Francis' growth. Arlene Francis needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both herself and others. Letting herself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. She may see the qualities that she needs to develop more fully (described above) in her partner. It is important for Arlene Francis to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Arlene Francis has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
The following are specific activities that will support Arlene Francis in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Francis, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Arlene Francis 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 Francis' 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 Arlene's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to her.
Arlene Francis tends to have far-reaching associations and has a strong desire to be involved with people of high society. She is likely to achieve great success through joint ventures with others and could do well in some political activity.
