Behind Gracie Lantz's rather cool, conservative, somewhat impersonal and businesslike demeanor (as described on the previous page), she is much more passionate and emotional. Grace Stafford often conceals her vulnerability beneath a veneer of toughness or indifference.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, she is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Grace Stafford is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and she only allows a special few into her inner world. Like a wary animal, she is cautious and mistrustful of those she does not know until "he sniffs them out". She is highly instinctive and intuitive. Grace Stafford usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though she may be unable to clearly articulate why she feels the way she does. Her feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Grace Stafford also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and she forms very intense love bonds and attachments. She is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that she perceives as a threat to her relationship with someone she loves. When Grace Stafford commits herself to someone or something, she is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Grace merges with or "marries" the person she loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for her, and often stormy and nasty. When Gracie Lantz has been wounded, she is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Grace will most certainly never forget the hurt and she often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to her.
Whatever she does, Grace does with passion and fervor, and she often goes to extremes. Gracie Lantz can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Gracie Lantz can also be very narrow-minded: either she is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for her at all. Rarely is Grace Stafford emotionally detached and objective. She definitely has a fanatical streak. She is also immensely strong-willed and her tenacity in pursuing her objectives often borders on obsession. She is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Grace Stafford loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Grace never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Grace Stafford tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Gracie Lantz.
Grace Stafford has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy her mind much of the time.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Grace Stafford, between her conscious attitudes and aspirations, and her deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs, and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Grace may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with her subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in her body may well be a signal that Grace Stafford is denying or suppressing the messages from her subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Grace Stafford will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of her and to express both of them. If she cannot do this, Gracie Lantz is apt to attract many relationships into her life with people who reflect her denied or repressed qualities, and who seem to make her life difficult. (Read also chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
Grace has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. Her self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit her in an almost magical way. Her optimism and cheerful generosity also win Gracie Lantz many allies and successes in life.
Grace Stafford tends to become excited and upset at the slightest cause, generating tension with others. Grace also could encounter strange experiences or coincidences with others. She may have a feeling of being different than others and she wants to be her own person.
