Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Janis Joplin 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 Janis Joplin needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Janis Joplin's 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 Joplin's instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress Janis Joplin 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 Janis should let go of this notion. Finding her own center and doing what gives her delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution Janis Joplin can offer the world at large.
