challenges and difficulties
Bergman 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, Ingrid Bergman 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 Ingrid.
Bergman is generally not a "joiner" and she does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Ingrid Bergman does participate in a group, she may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or she may simply feel that she does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Ingrid Bergman better than being with groups of her own peers.
The side of Ingrid Bergman 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 Ingrid finds it hard to relax. Ingrid Bergman 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. Bergman's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in her life.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Ingrid Bergman 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 Ingrid Bergman needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Ingrid Bergman's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Bergman's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Bergman's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Bergman'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?" Bergman's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Ingrid Bergman needs to strike a balance between doing for herself and doing for others, by discovering how Bergman's unique gifts can benefit others.
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 Bergman's work and daily routine will lead to greater satisfaction, improved health, and personal growth.
The following are specific activities that will support Ingrid Bergman in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Bergman, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Ingrid Bergman 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. Ingrid can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Ingrid Bergman has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
Ingrid Bergman tends to feel inferior and her attitude in the presence of others could be a bit negative or weak. She is inclined to shy away from groups and would be a rather quiet and passive member of an organization or association.
Ingrid has an inclination to gossip and spread stories or she could be the subject of gossip herself at times. Her perception of partnership and family relationships tends to be somewhat unrealistic, and Ingrid Bergman may put up a good front and pretend to have a harmonious life.
