challenges and difficulties
Parks 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. Rosa Parks 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 Rosa Parks feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
She may have nebulous but ever-present guilt and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Rosa Parks does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Rosa Parks must learn to overcome her ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Basically shy, Parks tends to be somewhat inhibited in love relationships and may feel uncomfortable or awkward expressing her love for someone. Rosa Parks longs for love relationships and dreams about love, but she is also inclined to torment herself because of a seeming lack of affection.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Rosa Parks 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 Rosa Parks needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking harmonious interpersonal relationships, cooperation, and togetherness, as well as the desire to please or appease other people, are drives that come very naturally to Rosa Parks - so much so that she seeks them out at her own expense. When she is under stress, Parks tends to look outside herself for approval or answers, and she leans on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Rosa Parks is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies". Stark honesty - both inward and toward others - is the only way out! This, however, leads to the need to confront some of Parks' most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if they do not like me?" and "what if I have to go through this alone?".
Rosa Parks needs to cultivate her ability to be assertive, take initiative and act on her own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are imperative.
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Rosa Parks is most likely to wrestle with these issues. The qualities described above need to be channeled into some sort of group effort or experience, or have some impact on society at large.
The following are specific activities that will support Rosa Parks in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Parks, 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). Rosa Parks 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. Rosa Parks has to start enjoying life, nurturing friendships and cultivating her ability to love and to receive love.
She is reserved and somewhat conservative in presenting her viewpoints to others and prefers a philosophical discussion rather than small talk. Rosa Parks is quite selective in her choice of subjects and only wants to study what is really of interest to her.
Parks is inclined to seek out relationships with people who have the same interests and she has a desire to work with them toward obtaining mutually shared objectives. Some of Rosa's contacts or introductions could come about suddenly.
