challenges and difficulties
Mahoney both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know her intimately does not come easily to Lorelei, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Lorelei Mahoney 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 Mahoney.
Lorelei Mahoney has a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life that colors everything she does. Caution and realism are her virtues though Lorelei limits herself at times by being too careful, shy or fearful, not believing in herself enough, or lacking the required assertiveness. Others find Lorelei Mahoney difficult to get to know intimately, as Mahoney tends to distance herself from them or to outwardly adopt a rather stern, "adult" demeanor.
Mahoney forges ahead diligently, but may have to work harder than others to gain recognition for her efforts. Reserved and shy, Lorelei Mahoney tends to build a wall between herself and others and she seems to be more receptive to older and more mature people.
Lorelei tries to keep her sensuality under control and is likely to suppress the tension she feels in her love relationships. At times she could feel somewhat emotionally inhibited, while at others, Lorelei Mahoney may have a strong wish to break all moral barriers.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Lorelei Mahoney 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 Lorelei Mahoney needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Lorelei Mahoney 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 Lorelei's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Mahoney's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Lorelei Mahoney to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Lorelei Mahoney is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Lorelei Mahoney 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 Lorelei Mahoney has merged emotionally, legally, or financially with another person - that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Mahoney 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 specific habits which are likely to hold Lorelei Mahoney back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Lorelei Mahoney tends to over-rely on luck or grace, living for tomorrow and gambling. Lorelei is overconfident and tends to overextend herself and take on more than is humanly possible. Lorelei is often dogmatic about her philosophy of life or religious beliefs.
She enjoys relationships with others who can tune into the spiritual world and Lorelei Mahoney is likely to join groups or associations that sponsor psychics and that explore the connection with karmic influences.
