challenges and difficulties
Nan Martin has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Martin is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Nan Martin takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Her fears revolve around money and material security, and Nan Martin works very hard to ensure that her assets are solid. She may be very conservative, even stingy with her money because she is afraid there will not be enough. She may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
She is likely to find it hard to make decisions, looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm on the one hand, but afraid of misjudgments on the other. Never quite sure about anything, Nan Martin may periodically withdraw from situations and people.
Nan dislikes tense or frustrating situations and has a strong desire to free herself from them. Acting quickly at times, Nan suddenly overcomes her inner inhibitions. Nan Martin also has the ability to aptly grasp difficult situations and to use them for her advancement.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Nan Martin 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 Nan Martin needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Nan Martin 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 Nan's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Martin's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable Nan Martin to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Nan Martin is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Nan Martin needs to cultivate her ability to live in the present!
