challenges and difficulties
Jean Auel often has a sense of longing or homesickness for something she cannot name or specify, and she may have both: great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.
Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for Auel.
Jean Auel takes her commitments to others very seriously, especially in close one-to-one relationships. Her strong sense of responsibility to the other person makes Auel a trustworthy and dedicated partner, but she often feels that marriage or any binding commitment between her and another person is too restrictive and burdensome, and thus seeks to avoid it. Close relationships may be more work than pleasure for Jean Auel and it may seem that she is always "working on" her marriage rather than enjoying it. However, Auel will persevere and ultimately grow through the process.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Jean's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Jean Auel to sort out her true values, especially when she is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Auel in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for her.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Jean Auel 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 Jean Auel needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Jean Auel has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Jean Auel needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, she has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, she may encourage others to depend on her emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Jean Auel needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
The arena she is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Jean Auel should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials she feels she possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The following are specific activities that will support Jean Auel in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Auel, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Jean Auel 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.
Jean Auel should develop her listening skills and deepen her understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Jean Auel 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 Jean Auel'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, Jean may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts she has already developed).
Jean Auel has a strong desire to take part in social functions and entertainment and cultivate an active exchange of thoughts with others. Jean also appreciates associations and has the ability to carry enterprises to a successful conclusion in team-work.
