challenges and difficulties
Belafonte both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know her intimately does not come easily to Shari, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. Shari Belafonte is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Belafonte.
Belafonte 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 Shari Belafonte 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 Shari Belafonte better than being with groups of her own peers.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Shari Belafonte 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 Shari Belafonte needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Shari Belafonte has a great capacity for sympathy, tenderness, and caring, which is a gift that she is apt to over bestow at times. For balance, Shari Belafonte 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. Shari Belafonte 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 Shari Belafonte 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. Shari Belafonte 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 Shari Belafonte in her growth. These may or may not feel natural to Belafonte, and she may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to her path to wholeness.
Shari Belafonte should become a warrior and cultivate a positive, victorious, active approach to life and to any problems she faces. It is in Belafonte's best interest to act on her own behalf instead of stalling, waiting or hoping someone else will do it for her. Shari Belafonte needs to assert herself openly and courageously and not to be afraid to make mistakes or stumble; there are bound to be a few trial runs to any new initiative. Shari needs to foster a healthy fighting spirit, pick herself up, and go! She also should learn to appreciate conflict and confrontation as a means to grow.
