challenges and difficulties
Barrymore fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance herself or deny her needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that she will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Drew Barrymore may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Drew.
Her fears revolve around money and material security, and Drew Barrymore 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.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Drew Barrymore will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Drew feel a little out of step with others. Drew Barrymore takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Drew feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Drew Barrymore has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
At times Drew Barrymore struggles with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, she may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of her mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Drew Barrymore has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if her religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting herself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Drew occasionally.
Drew Barrymore has a tendency to think on the dark side, is somewhat gloomy and touchy and easily disappointed. She may find it hard to keeps her attention on the real world and could become obsessed with strange ideas and fanciful beliefs.
Drew Barrymore has a desire to break away from tradition and to free herself from restricting conditions. Somewhat inflexible and rigid, she may suddenly become inhibited before she initiates her objectives, which could work out to Barrymore's disadvantage.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Drew Barrymore 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 Drew Barrymore needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Drew Barrymore to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Drew Barrymore needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Drew directs her attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Barrymore's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
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 Barrymore's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
The following are specific activities that will support Drew Barrymore in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Barrymore, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Drew Barrymore should become more aware of the spiritual side of life and its underlying unity by getting involved in charitable activities and opening up her psychic channels. Meditation that develops Barrymore's intuitive abilities, as well as learning about the unseen side of life through her own dream experiences or altered states of awareness, can be important steps in Drew's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to her.
