challenges and difficulties
Kim is wary of becoming emotionally dependent on 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, Gail Kim 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 Gail.
Her fears revolve around money and material security, and Gail Kim 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.
Gail has an inner conflict between idealism, hope and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. Gail Kim needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve her aspirations. Kim will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Gail Kim 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 Gail Kim needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
She is capable of withstanding outside influences and remaining constant and steady on her path, but when under stress Gail Kim becomes downright obstinate and implacable, resisting any change no matter how necessary or desirable the change may be. Tenaciously trying to preserve the status quo and hold on to what she has, she is apt to ignore the subtle signals she receives about needing to do something differently, which often leads to a crisis.
Gail Kim needs to learn the limits of her ability to control life, and to accept and even embrace change and loss of the familiar, in order to allow for new life and growth. "Letting go" is a major life lesson for her. Kim also needs to develop a balanced attitude toward her appetites and desires, as Gail Kim tends to overindulge and/or deny herself excessively.
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 Kim's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
The following are specific activities that will support Gail Kim in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Kim, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Gail Kim should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. She needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with her family or a community that can support her and give her a sense of safety and belonging.
Gail Kim should develop her listening skills and deepen her understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Gail Kim has to learn to trust her own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. She needs to care for herself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Gail Kim's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from her past and use it in a new way. (If she is so inclined, Gail may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts she has already developed).
Gail Kim seems to be a loner, rather serious and quiet. Perhaps she is burdened by family conditions that weigh her down. Gail prefers to associate with older or more authoritative people and is happier in a subordinate position.
