challenges and difficulties
Liona Boyd has a penchant for order and precision, and an almost compulsive attention to detail. She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Boyd knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyzes or picks things apart mentally. Liona Boyd may also be somewhat of a hypochondriac. Liona must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.
Her attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, Liona Boyd 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, Liona 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 Liona Boyd may feel that life or God will punish her if she does not watch her step!
Very cautious and reserved, Liona Boyd may find it difficult to express herself. She is a bit inhibited around others and does not seem to derive much cooperation from them, which causes Liona to be disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Liona Boyd 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 Liona Boyd needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Liona Boyd - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Boyd tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Liona Boyd is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Boyd's most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Liona Boyd needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
The arena she is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Liona Boyd should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials she feels she possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
