challenges and difficulties
Agnes Bojaxhiu 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. Mother Teresa 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 Mother Teresa feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Mother Teresa from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Mother Teresa 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 Agnes Bojaxhiu 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, Mother Teresa needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help Mother Teresa accomplish this.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Mother Teresa 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 Mother Teresa needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Mother Teresa benefits by becoming more aware of the rhythm of the seasons and the natural world, learning to slow down and allow life to unfold in its own time. Nurturing a garden, a child, or some other living, growing thing gives Mother Teresa a sense of inner balance.
Mother Teresa has a tendency to be deeply suspicious, to not take anything at face value and to see hidden agendas and dark motives even where none exist! Life does not have to be a constant conflict... Mother Teresa needs to learn to accept things as they are.
Agnes Bojaxhiu also needs to develop patience, peace and stability by grounding herself in her daily work and behaving consistently and reliably towards others.
The arena she is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. Mother Teresa should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials she feels she possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The following are specific activities that will support Mother Teresa in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Agnes Bojaxhiu, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Mother Teresa should care for and nourish children, plants, pets or other people. She needs to make a home, create and sustain strong relationships with her family or a community that can support her and give her a sense of safety and belonging.
Mother Teresa should develop her listening skills and deepen her understanding and appreciation of women and their perspective. Mother Teresa has to learn to trust her own feelings, intuitions and emotional needs. She needs to care for herself in an accepting, non-judgmental way.
It is in Mother Teresa's best interest to take all that is good and helpful from her past and use it in a new way. (If she is so inclined, Mother Teresa may want to explore the potential of past-life regression to tap into gifts she has already developed).
