challenges and difficulties
Carey Lowell has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Carey is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack the capacity for joy and play. Carey Lowell often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Lowell's that may inhibit her a great deal. Carey Lowell must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob her of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Carey may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. She strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for her.
On another level entirely, Carey Lowell is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Lowell wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Her aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Carey Lowell pursues her aims in a systematic, disciplined and thorough manner, and she is willing to take her time, advancing slowly and steadily toward her goal.
Sometimes Carey Lowell underestimates what is possible, and holds herself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
The side of Carey Lowell that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with her urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension as a result, and at times Carey finds it hard to relax. Carey Lowell may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on herself, in an attempt to strictly control her "wild" impulses. Lowell's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in her life.
Basically shy, Lowell tends to be somewhat inhibited in love relationships and may feel uncomfortable or awkward expressing her love for someone. Carey Lowell longs for love relationships and dreams about love, but is also inclined to torment herself because of a seeming lack of affection.
She is inclined to be rather serious and withdrawn. As she feels very uncomfortable in the presence of others, Carey Lowell shies away from social contacts and prefers to be by herself.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Carey Lowell 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 Carey Lowell needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Carey Lowell copes with stress. Carey Lowell also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Carey Lowell to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in trying to strike a balance between Lowell's inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Carey Lowell needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Carey Lowell back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Excessive thinking, rationalizing or talking, the overuse or misuse of Lowell's intellectual abilities and the tendency to allow her energy to be dissipated in trivial activities.
The following are specific activities that will support Carey Lowell in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Lowell, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Carey Lowell's path to wholeness involves confronting her dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming herself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Lowell's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Carey.
Her relationships with others may be rather unstable and unreliable. With a somewhat negative attitude and weak will, Carey Lowell avoids opposition and escapes her responsibilities. In her relationships she is likely to choose people who are asocial.
