challenges and difficulties
Woodward both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know her intimately does not come easily to Dani, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Dani Woodward is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Woodward.
It may be difficult for Dani Woodward to play spontaneously or just let her hair down, for she tends to inhibit that side of her by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression she is making.
Dani may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for she wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged and recognized as special in some way. Though she may indeed be outstanding, Dani Woodward also needs to learn to relax and enjoy herself more.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Dani Woodward 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 Dani Woodward needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Dani Woodward needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Dani's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Woodward's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Dani Woodward to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Dani Woodward is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Dani Woodward needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
It is deep within herself, as Dani Woodward faces her own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of her life that Dani Woodward 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 Dani Woodward back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive anti-authoritarian attitude. Dani Woodward seeks constant (and often purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable people, and individual freedom at any cost.
Woodward is somewhat shy and tends to feel inferior when she is with others. Dani Woodward is inclined to establish relationships with weak or sick people and is always willing to help or take care of them.
