challenges and difficulties
Ling either overvalues or undervalues her possessions and assets. She can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Bai Ling may deny herself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of her labors. She may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Bai Ling feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
It may be difficult for Bai Ling 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.
Bai 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, Bai Ling also needs to learn to relax and enjoy herself more.
She may feel hindered or oppressed by other people frequently and overcoming difficulties jointly with others could come suddenly. Bai Ling seems to be afraid of her own courage and may find it hard to express her desires.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Bai Ling 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 Bai Ling needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Ling's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Bai Ling has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Bai Ling needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Bai Ling should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
