challenges and difficulties
Piaf 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, Édith Piaf 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 Édith.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Édith. She strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for her.
On another level entirely, Édith Piaf is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Piaf wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
The side of Édith Piaf that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with her urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension due to this, and at times Édith finds it hard to relax. Édith Piaf may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on herself, in an attempt to strictly control her "wild" impulses. Piaf's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in her life.
Édith Piaf has a tendency to be too critical of herself. She may be plagued by feelings of guilt about some past events, leading to further self-doubt. Édith must learn to handle her frustration, depression and discontentment and try to overcome her lack of self-confidence.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Édith Piaf 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 Édith Piaf needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Édith Piaf's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Piaf's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Piaf's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Piaf'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?" Piaf's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Édith Piaf needs to strike a balance between doing for herself and doing for others, by discovering how Piaf's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in her way of thinking, processing information and communicating that Édith Piaf is most likely to wrestle with these issues. In Piaf's relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, she needs to try to bring out the qualities described above.
The following are specific activities that will support Édith Piaf in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Piaf, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Édith Piaf should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen her ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. She needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Édith can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Édith Piaf has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
She is very social minded and it is easy for Édith Piaf to show her affection. Her family or community probably provided good possibilities for her development. Piaf may love to show off a little and she thrives on being involved with others in joyful group activities.
Édith Piaf has a strong desire to take part in social functions and entertainment and cultivate an active exchange of thoughts with others. Édith also appreciates associations and has the ability to carry enterprises to a successful conclusion in team-work.
Édith has the power to influence people to her way of thinking and may forcefully try to obtain the leadership in her community. Others cannot help noticing her, and Édith Piaf will probably be the leader in any clubs or associations she may decide to join.
