challenges and difficulties
Joanie Laurer doubts her own intelligence and mental capacities, and she may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Chyna is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for her.
Her fears revolve around money and material security, and Chyna 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.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Chyna's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Chyna to sort out her true values, especially when she is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Joanie Laurer in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for her.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Chyna 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 Chyna needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Chyna's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Joanie Laurer's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Joanie Laurer's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Joanie Laurer's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress she is likely to become overly focused on herself and her own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Joanie Laurer's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Chyna needs to strike a balance between doing for herself and doing for others, by discovering how Joanie Laurer's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Chyna is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The following are specific activities that will support Chyna in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Joanie Laurer, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
She needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Chyna has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. She needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Chyna has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating her ability to love and to receive love.
Chyna should take extra care in her relationships with people, for she could easily end up in the wrong crowd. Chyna could be the victim of fraud and falsehood or through association may become an accessory to malicious action.
