challenges and difficulties
Bowen either overvalues or undervalues her possessions and assets. She can also go to extremes in dealing with bodily needs and desires, being either hedonistic or ascetic. Julie Bowen may deny herself sensual pleasure and enjoyment of the fruits of her labors. She may also be stingy and unable to give freely. Many times Julie Bowen feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
Bowen 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 Julie Bowen 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 Julie Bowen better than being with groups of her own peers.
Julie Bowen tends to seesaw between hope, optimism, and faith versus doubt and oppression by limitations and practical realities. She needs to overcome impatience and restlessness in order to achieve her dreams and desires for a better life.
The side of Julie Bowen 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 Julie finds it hard to relax. Julie Bowen 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. Bowen's task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in her life.
Bowen works quietly to get ahead, but may have to work harder than others to gain recognition for her efforts. Reserved and shy, Julie Bowen tends to build a wall between herself and others and she seems to be more receptive to older and mature people.
She is somewhat pessimistic and prone to states of depression. Julie Bowen may feel like withdrawing from everything and that she is not adequately equipped to handle her life. She may need someone else's point of view to balance her overly pessimistic outlook.
She is inclined to be rather serious and withdrawn. Feeling very uncomfortable in the presence of others, Julie Bowen shies away from social contacts and prefers to be by herself.
Julie tries to build her life on solid ground, but may find it difficult to move forward, because she always tends to look back. This could result in feelings of inferiority and periodic moods of depression.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Julie Bowen 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 Julie Bowen needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Bowen's deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Julie Bowen has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in her public life and career that Julie Bowen is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Bowen's reputation and standing in her community or professional circle, as well as how Julie Bowen achieves her important life goals and aspirations.
The following are specific activities that will support Julie Bowen in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Bowen, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Julie Bowen should develop true self-confidence and the willingness to put herself "out there", be seen and shine. Julie needs to be willing to take on a leading role. She needs to be a hero - a protagonist in her own story - by cultivating the courageous, active, and positive masculine qualities she possesses. Doing creative work that she is proud of - anything that comes from Bowen's heart and bears the stamp of Bowen's individuality - is important. Also, being a mentor, a helpful, encouraging force in the life of someone less experienced than she is a way for Julie Bowen to grow and become more whole herself.
Julie Bowen has a tendency to shy away from other people, and she reacts toward others in an almost fearful way. Bowen seems to lack confidence in herself and for this reason may feel that she lacks the ability to adapt easily into relationships with others.
