challenges and difficulties
Camille Claudel takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Camille enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Camille Claudel also fears entrapment in close relationships.
She may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Camille Claudel does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Camille Claudel must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
She is likely to have very intense experiences in her emotional life and should guard against feelings of depression and inhibition. Camille Claudel may be plagued by inner turmoil and obsessive ideas or notions.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Camille Claudel 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 Camille Claudel 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 Camille Claudel 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.
Camille Claudel 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. Claudel also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Camille Claudel tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
It is deep within herself, as Camille Claudel faces her own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of her life that Camille Claudel 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.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Camille Claudel back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Staying in relationships with domineering, controlling, abusive people or being manipulative. Camille sometimes abuses her own power to use others to her own selfish ends.
Claudel cooperates with others in a vigorous and energetic way. Her motto seems to be "one for all and all for one", and she feels strongly connected with others. In fact, Camille Claudel looks upon other people as necessary for a worthwhile life.
