challenges and difficulties
Rita Wilson has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Wilson is more rigid and dogmatic than she realizes. Her approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Rita Wilson takes her own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if she is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
Wilson is generally not a "joiner" and she does not feel comfortable in clubs, organizations or other groups of people that are centered on some common ideal or interest. If Rita Wilson does participate in a group, she may find the rules and procedures restrictive - or she may simply feel that she does not fit in with the others.
Being alone or with older, more experienced people suits Rita Wilson better than being with groups of her own peers.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Rita Wilson 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 Rita Wilson needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Instinctively she is a fighter and an individualist who can stand alone when necessary. Very often, however, Rita stands alone when she does not need to, not realizing the support, assistance, and resources others may have to offer. Rita Wilson has a tendency to "reinvent the wheel" and to feel that she must be self-reliant and that only she can come up with the answers she needs. Implicit in this attitude is a kind of arrogance as well as a rather competitive approach, which - at its worst - can alienate her from others, or make Rita Wilson feel that "it is me against the world".
Social skills and graces and what Rita Wilson calls social "games" do not come naturally to her. Rita Wilson needs to learn how to share and join others, and how to negotiate and resolve conflict with others in a cooperative way.
It is in fostering a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether through religious or philosophical studies, education or the wisdom of distant lands or cultures that Rita Wilson is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Rita Wilson needs to cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to Wilson.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Rita Wilson back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being bound to past events and experiences because of her desire to belong, deep attachments to family and the familiar (even if they are neither nourishing nor helpful), the desire to nurture or be nurtured by others, and a strong resistance to cutting the umbilical cord.
The following are specific activities that will support Rita Wilson in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Wilson, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
She needs to give and receive affection, love and pleasure (primarily with the qualities described previously). Rita Wilson has to learn to respond to, appreciate and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. She needs to be aware of aesthetics and to do things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Rita Wilson has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating her ability to love and to receive love.
