challenges and difficulties
Knightley both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting herself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Keira, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Keira Knightley is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Knightley.
Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Keira from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Keira Knightley felt deprived in some manner, whether or not she actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of her needs and feelings may typify her early life, at least as Knightley remembers it. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, Keira Knightley needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Keira accomplish this.
She is suspicious of groups, crowds, and social organizations. Knightley is quick to pick up on social charades and insincerity and avoids the limelight and glamour. Keira Knightley is direct and to the point in speech and manner, stubborn and inflexible, and often unwilling to communicate her innermost feelings and thoughts.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Keira Knightley 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 Keira Knightley needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Keira Knightley 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 Keira's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Knightley's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Keira Knightley to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Keira Knightley is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Keira Knightley needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
It is deep within herself, as Keira Knightley faces her own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of her life that Keira Knightley keeps hidden from public view where she is most likely to wrestle with these issues.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service or ministering to people in need.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Keira Knightley back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Escapism through fantasy, intoxicants, or passive, vicarious activities (television, movies, etc.), waiting for a miracle instead of taking constructive steps to help herself, aimlessness or an inability to make and keep commitments, and self deception regarding other people. Keira has a tendency to be a martyr.
