Essences of Nature: Break Free to Flourish

Essences of Nature: Break Free to Flourish Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

As the new year approaches, I find myself incubating what the flowers want to share. Sometimes it is fairly straightforward, as they make their intentions known. This time, I feel that they want to address the breaking-out-of-the-seed process. They want us to feel that burst of energy to break through and break free, to fulfill our flourish.

I like the feeling of flourishing. The word feels like the action it describes. How will we flourish in the upcoming year? I feel many of us have been through the germination phase as we prepare to embrace a fuller expression of our gifts and capacities. Now we have to believe it or, better yet, we have to act more. Breakthroughs require movement and ignition. I like to say, “When in doubt, move all about.” Movement begets movement. Strike the match, and catch the fire.
