Crown Princess Masako
challenges and difficulties
Princess Masako has an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave her feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with her peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for Masako Owada.
She may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Crown Princess Masako does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Crown Princess Masako 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.
Crown Princess Masako strives and struggles a great deal with her ideals or spiritual aspirations. She may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and in-depth study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or she may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals; however, she can never quite divorce herself from her idealistic concerns.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Crown Princess Masako 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 Crown Princess Masako needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress, Crown Princess Masako is apt to shut off the flow of her emotions and ignore her needs and feelings in order to do what she perceives as her duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation dictate. This can lead to a certain rigidity and inflexibility. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of her, makes life more of a burden than an adventure.
Fostering her tender, caring, feminine, and nurturing aspects is an important step in Crown Princess Masako's growth. Crown Princess Masako needs to learn how to nourish and lovingly tend to both herself and others. Letting herself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
It is in trying to strike a balance between Masako Owada's inner, personal life and her career or involvement with the world at large that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Crown Princess Masako needs to focus attention on her home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Crown Princess Masako back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The tendency for self-indulgence, laziness, and over-reliance on the generosity or affection of others, as well as making love relationships, social life and superficial pleasures more important than anything else in her life.
