Essences of Nature: The Success of Failure

Essences of Nature: The Success of Failure Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

What is the worst thing that can happen? We don't get it right, we don't understand, or we fall flat on our faces? Often we think we are behaving stupidly when it's just that we don't want to look bad or ignorant. We are so concerned about not doing it right or not getting it right that we lose sight of the bigger picture.

Think about what you learned from doing it wrong. Think about how much you remember and adjust your perceptions by what you didn't do or what you didn't see. If you were right all the time—as many of us are—what would wrong look like? How do you make something right that you did wrong? How do we make peace and find productivity from our mistakes?

Penstemon Essence for Perseverance in Troubled Times

Penstemon essence is the essence for hardship and adversity. This is the essence for when you find yourself asking, "Why is this happening to me?" Use this essence when you feel everything is stacked against you and you cannot gain any traction or forward movement. This is the essence for when you feel that you have been treated unfairly or have been singled out for whatever reason. The tone for taking Penstemon essence is unfairness and undue burden.
