challenges and difficulties
Ray doubts her own intelligence and mental capacities, and she may work very hard at studies in order to compensate for this. Lisa is often overly serious and disinterested in light or superficial conversation. Spontaneous communication, social give-and-take, and making small talk are likely to be difficult for her.
Ray 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 Lisa Ray 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 Lisa Ray better than being with groups of her own peers.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Lisa's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Lisa Ray 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 Ray in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for her.
She is inclined to be somewhat withdrawn and has a hard time discussing important matters with her family and close relationships. As a serious and deep thinker, Lisa Ray would like to explain her views to others, but has a difficult time finding the right words.
Ray may find it difficult to relate to people and express her feelings, especially in love relationships. On the hand, Lisa Ray wants relationships yet on the other, she would rather be by herself. A sense of personal inadequacy makes Lisa withdraw from others and feel lonely as a result.
Lisa 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 depression.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Lisa Ray 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 Lisa Ray needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Lisa Ray's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Ray's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Ray's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Ray's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress she is likely to become overly focused on herself and her own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Ray's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, Lisa Ray needs to strike a balance between doing for herself and doing for others, by discovering how Ray's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in her marriage and other intimate, one-to-one relationships that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. She may see the qualities that she needs to develop more fully (described above) in her partner. It is important for Lisa Ray to recognize, appreciate, and listen to the people in her life who express such attributes, as well as to develop them herself. Lisa Ray has to put energy and attention into learning about others, and about herself through others.
Ray makes a big impression on everyone she meets and has the ability to attract many people. Others find Lisa Ray very fascinating and she is likely to see herself as their model in groups or associations.
Lisa Ray has a strong desire to break records and set an example for others through her own achievements. Lisa tends to spur others on to improve results and her relationships with others serve to better conditions.
Because of certain people and circumstances in her environment, Lisa Ray may sometimes find it difficult to follow her ambitions. It could be to Lisa's advantage to sever her relationships with those who control or try to abuse her.
