challenges and difficulties
Norma Shearer has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Shearer is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Norma Shearer takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
She is serious by nature, and may have difficulty making small talk or participating in friendly, personal exchanges.
Norma Shearer tries to be strictly accurate and is critical of people who exaggerate or discuss subjects they really know little about. Shearer withholds her thoughts and opinions until she has thought everything through quite thoroughly, and sometimes Norma's silence discomforts others.
Her mental concentration is very good but her breadth of understanding may not be.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of Norma's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for Norma Shearer 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 Shearer in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for her.
At some point in her life Norma Shearer may experience a tragic love relationship that affects her deeply. She may remain heavily burdened by certain disturbing experiences, thereby rendering Norma cold or bitter.
She is inclined to feel inferior and may easily be taken in by others. Norma has to guard against being deceived or used by others, though her intentions may be good. Norma Shearer must not let her desire to have things cloud her ability to see what is really happening.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Norma Shearer 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 Norma Shearer needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for Norma Shearer to become distracted from her path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to her. Norma Shearer needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until Norma directs her attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", she is apt to dabble, scatter her energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for her life and aligning her daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Shearer's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward her personal development.
It is in her dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions that she is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above are ones Norma Shearer needs to integrate in tangible ways: how she makes a living, building assets and a secure material base, what she does with the resources she has. Norma Shearer should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The following are specific activities that will support Norma Shearer in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Shearer, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Norma Shearer should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen her ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. She needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. Norma can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. Norma Shearer has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
