challenges and difficulties
Fadal fears of becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance herself or deny her needs for relationships of closeness and intimacy so that she will not be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, Shannon Elizabeth may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for Shannon Elizabeth.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague Shannon Elizabeth. She strongly resists changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for her.
On another level entirely, Shannon Elizabeth is very careful about joining forces, and especially her material resources, with others. Fadal wants to keep her own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
Her faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions Shannon Elizabeth has for her life are firmly held in check by her sense of reality. At times she may wish for more freedom, but Shannon Elizabeth also fears it and hang back. Shannon Elizabeth may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for her own inhibitions.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Shannon Elizabeth will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Shannon Elizabeth feel a little out of step with others. Shannon Elizabeth takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Shannon Elizabeth feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her. Shannon Elizabeth has a deep inner resolve and is willing to struggle to do the things that are really meaningful to her, rather than follow an easier but less meaningful course in life.
At times Shannon Elizabeth struggles with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, she may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of her mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Shannon Elizabeth has to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if her religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting herself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over Shannon Elizabeth occasionally.
Lacking confidence in herself, Shannon Elizabeth has the feeling that her luck has abandoned her. She is inclined to sit and wait for the right opportunities to come along, placing too much emphasis on wishful thinking and is disappointed when nothing happens.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Shannon Elizabeth 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 Shannon Elizabeth needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Shannon Elizabeth has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Shannon Elizabeth needs to foster mature self-discipline, self-control, and personal responsibility.
When under stress, she has a strong instinct to retreat back to the nest, to be a child again, or to become overwhelmed with feelings and longings to be taken care of. Also, she may encourage others to depend on her emotionally (and otherwise) to an unhealthy degree. Shannon Elizabeth needs to learn how to set limits and to turn off the flow of support when necessary.
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 Shannon Elizabeth 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. Shannon Elizabeth should try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.
The specific habits which are likely to hold Shannon Elizabeth back, or which she is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Shannon Elizabeth's rigid self-control overly restricts her ability to freely express herself or explore possibilities. She is excessively concerned with work, duty and security. She tends to be fearful, judgmental towards herself or others, and can feel alone and cut off from sources of nourishment outside herself. Shannon Elizabeth should try to learn to relax and recognize that not everything is Fadal's responsibility.
Shannon Elizabeth tends to be a bit too idealistic and may place too much hope on her relationships, resulting in frequent disappointments. Shannon Elizabeth could be attracted to naive people, but some of her contacts also may turn out to be swindlers.
