challenges and difficulties
Lumley 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, Joanna Lumley 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 Joanna.
Her attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Joanna Lumley may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to her. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Joanna may tenaciously cling to her grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
Her overall outlook on life is serious, and Joanna Lumley may feel that life or God will punish her if she does not watch her steps!
Joanna has an inner conflict between idealism, hope, and faith in the future versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. Joanna Lumley needs to develop discipline and patience in order to achieve her aspirations. Lumley will grow by learning to accept frustration and to persevere in spite of obstacles.
Joanna Lumley strongly rebels against any restrictions and may have the desire to break away, over-throwing all thought of responsibility. On the other hand, limitations in her live also could suddenly pass away, leaving Lumley free to do her own thing.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Joanna Lumley 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 Joanna Lumley needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Joanna Lumley needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Joanna's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Lumley's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Joanna Lumley to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Joanna Lumley is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Joanna Lumley needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
It is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular in cases where Joanna Lumley has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Lumley will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency involved. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
The following are specific activities that will support Joanna Lumley in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Lumley, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Joanna Lumley 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. Joanna can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Joanna Lumley has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
She is a born leader and has the ability to persuade members of a group or association she belongs to. Lumley always promotes the cultivation of good fellowship and teamwork, insuring success in any plans or joint undertakings she may pursue.
Lumley cooperates with others in a vigorous and energetic way. Her motto seems to be "one for all and all for one", and she feels strongly connected with others. In fact, Joanna Lumley looks upon other people as necessary for a worthwhile life.
