challenges and difficulties
Rhimes 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. Shonda Rhimes 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 Shonda Rhimes feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
She may have vague but ever-present feelings of guilt and fear that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It is as if Shonda Rhimes does not trust Life itself, and is always seeking ways to defend herself from its dangers and its unknowns. Shonda Rhimes 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.
Shonda Rhimes tends to seesaw between hope, optimism and faith versus doubt and oppression due to limitations and practical realities. She needs to overcome impatience and restlessness in order to achieve her dreams and desires for a better life.
At times Shonda Rhimes struggles with nebulous worries, insecurities and fears that may be difficult to pinpoint. Mostly, she may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of her mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. Shonda Rhimes 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 Shonda occasionally.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Shonda Rhimes 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 Shonda Rhimes needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance Rhimes' deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, she is apt to try to rigorously analyze and focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and she can easily become problem-oriented and lose sight of the big picture.
Shonda Rhimes has to learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. She should let her feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use her imagination and let her dreams emerge!
It is in any involvements she has with teams, clubs, organizations, networks, and the like that Shonda Rhimes 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.
Shonda Rhimes seems to be a loner, rather serious and quiet. Perhaps she is burdened by family conditions that weigh her down. Shonda prefers to associate with older or more authoritative people and is happier in a subordinate position.
She is reserved and somewhat conservative in presenting her viewpoints to others and prefers a philosophical discussion to small talk. Shonda Rhimes is quite selective in her choice of subjects and only wants to study what is really of interest to her.
Shonda Rhimes often tends to feel sad and may sympathize with people who are "in the same boat". She is likely to cling to old things and wants to pass on her traditions.
