challenges and difficulties
Nina Hartley has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. Nina is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but she may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. Nina Hartley often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Hartley's which may inhibit her a great deal. Nina Hartley must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Her fears revolve around money and material security, and Nina Hartley 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.
Her aspirations and dreams are always tempered by realism and practical considerations. Nina Hartley pursues her aims in a systematic, disciplined, and thorough manner, and she is willing to takes her time, advancing slowly and steadily on her way towards her goal.
Sometimes Nina Hartley underestimates what is possible, and holds herself back unnecessarily due to a lack of faith or an overly cautious attitude.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Nina Hartley 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 Nina Hartley needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Her natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively go along with whatever is easiest, refrain from clearly analyzing or assessing her situation and perhaps even try to escape from seeing her situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways Nina Hartley copes with stress. Nina Hartley also has trouble setting limits and saying no.
Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Nina Hartley to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
It is in her public life and career that Nina Hartley is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The latter will impact Hartley's reputation and standing in her community or professional circle, as well as how Nina Hartley achieves her important life goals and aspirations.
The following are specific activities that will support Nina Hartley in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Hartley, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Nina Hartley's path to wholeness involves confronting her dark and hidden recesses, bringing them out into the open, and transforming herself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of Hartley's willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Furthermore, bringing light to the darkness and pain in the world without becoming overwhelmed by it is a significant challenge for Nina.
Nina has the power to influence people to her way of thinking and may forcefully try to obtain the leadership in her community. Others cannot help noticing her, and Nina Hartley will probably be the leader in any clubs or associations she may decide to join.
