Essences of Nature: Take the First Step

Essences of Nature: Take the First Step Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

Where do we start when we want to begin something? Do we start at the beginning, the so-called first step? Do we take the fool's journey by jumping in and hoping that the safety net will appear? Do we plot and plan and use our astrological charts to align with the most auspicious of times? Do we cross ourselves and put one foot in front of the other?

No matter how and what we do, we have that starting point. We have the first step or the first intention to begin something new. What do we do when we get there? Do we wait our turn? Do we jump the line? Do we time it just right, as if trying to jump in a double dutch game without tripping over ourselves? How do we get to the right place at the right time?

Goldenrod essence helps us to seek our own counsel. It ushers us to embrace that milestone at which we are less concerned about what others might think and moves us to being okay with what we think and know. It teaches us to trust our judgment and be who we are.
