Diversity

OBSTACLES

Self-confidence

Seeing your Self through the eyes of others, through what they think, and what they want you to be, is not who you are. This dilutes your confidence in making decisions based on your own nature. Be your Self no matter how others perceive you.

The masculine part of you, the potent, assertive, leadership energy, may be repressed. Tapping into this energy and integrating it in a gently sensitive energetic way will facilitate a healthy expression. Strenuous physical exercise will help integrate intense emotions and release them consistently and constructively, avoiding inappropriate displays.

 

Power

You are coming into your own and claiming your own power. The fear of expressing your Self may make you shy.

The experience of being wrong validates your sense of Self because you took the risk. Taking a stand is more important than the outcome.

 

Dependence

You may tend to be overly dependent, relying on others to fulfill your needs. You may feel let down when others do not read your mind. A healthy relationship occurs when two people bolster each other’s identities as separate individuals while working toward a common goal. Remain in your own power while participating in relationships.

 

Excessive Giving

You may give beyond the point of balance and drain your life force energy. Allow your internal sense of moderation to regulate your giving. The sharing of energy needs to be mutually regenerative.
