challenges and difficulties
Clara Bow 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 Bow.
She may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Clara Bow does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Clara Bow 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.
Clara has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Clara Bow needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve her aspirations. Bow will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Basically shy, Clara may become a bit inhibited when talking with other people. Clara Bow tends to withdraw from others and likes to live a humble, quiet live in seclusion. She may get involved with a group of a secretive nature, although Bow is not one to join groups in general.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Clara Bow 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 Clara Bow 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 Clara Bow copes with stress. Clara Bow 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 Clara Bow to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in her work and her relationships with co-workers, employers, and employees that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Integrating the qualities described above into Bow's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Clara Bow back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Clara Bow's rigid self-control overly restricts her ability to freely express herself or explore possibilities. She is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. She tends to be fearful, judgmental towards herself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside herself. Clara Bow should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Bow's responsibility.
The following are specific activities that will support Clara Bow in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Bow, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Clara Bow has to learn to communicate and express herself through the written or spoken word. It is best for Clara to study, learn skills and develop her intellectual interests and capacities. Bow needs to become involved in sharing and exchanging information with others and in developing her intellectual reasoning ability. Clara Bow should practice using her mind, her thinking skills and her ability to be objective. "Work smarter, not harder" might be a motto for her.
Writing, teaching, recording, transcribing, dialoguing, negotiating, mediating, communicating, or facilitating clear communication are significant activities for Clara Bow to pursue.
Because of rigid and somewhat unpleasant family relationships, Clara Bow is inclined to seclude herself from others. She may prefer to live in archaic surroundings and could be interested in antiques.
