challenges and difficulties
Grace Metalious takes her personal relationships so seriously that they may seem more like work, constant effort and compromise, rather than a free and enjoyable sharing experience. She may feel that relationships in general require more of her than they are worth, and Grace enters into any close relationship cautiously and conscientiously. Grace Metalious also fears entrapment in close relationships.
She may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Grace Metalious does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Grace Metalious must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
She is inclined to be somewhat timid and afraid to start something on her own, preferring that someone else tell her what to do. Grace Metalious can easily be deterred from pursuing her goals, which makes her advancement in life rather slow.
Her emotional life is likely to be somewhat strained and she has a tendency toward pessimism. Grace Metalious may not feel as close in her relationships to her loved ones as she would like to, and Grace may find it difficult to give and receive love.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Grace Metalious 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 Grace Metalious needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Grace Metalious' path lies in her development as an individual, the discovery of her own strengths and joys, the capacity to express her uniqueness and to stand out in a crowd. This involves becoming a leader, even though Metalious' instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Grace Metalious is apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, she may believe that striving to do her personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but Grace should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Grace Metalious can offer the world at large.
It is in her public life and career that Grace Metalious is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Metalious' reputation and standing in her community or professional circle, as well as how Grace Metalious achieves her important life goals and aspirations.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Grace Metalious back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
The following are specific activities that will support Grace Metalious in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Metalious, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Grace Metalious 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 Metalious' 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 Grace's path.
Moreover, musical and artistic or imaginative endeavors will be important to her.
