challenges and difficulties
Elissa Sursara has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Elissa is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack the capacity for joy and play. Elissa Sursara often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Sursara's that may inhibit her a great deal. Elissa Sursara must avoid becoming cumbersome and cynical, or a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose sense of practicality and realism rob her of the playful, imaginative side of life.
Elissa may be plagued by fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death. 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, Elissa Sursara is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Sursara wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
She is serious and sincere about her interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Elissa wants her inspirations to become reality and she does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. Elissa Sursara becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and her occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
Elissa Sursara has a tendency to be overly critical of herself. She may be plagued by feelings of guilt about certain past events, leading to further self-doubt. Elissa must learn to handle her frustration, depression and discontent and try to overcome her lack of self-confidence.
She is a bit skeptical, somewhat irritable, and others may find Elissa Sursara quarrelsome or nagging. Her nervousness seems to stem from her tendency to over-work herself, and Sursara should try not to make more demands on others than they are able to handle.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Elissa Sursara 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 Elissa Sursara needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Sursara's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Elissa Sursara has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Elissa Sursara is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
