Essences of Nature: Driven to Distraction

Essences of Nature: Driven to Distraction Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

Have you ever had the experience of really wanting to do "your thing," such as set aside writing, painting, or even hiking time? You make a plan, you schedule it in, and then all heck breaks loose. That specific time you set aside seems to have the power to magnetize every challenge and catastrophe for exactly that time spot. You repeat this cycle many times, and maybe you have come to the conclusion that you are not supposed to do that thing.

This is another version of getting a $2,000 bonus. You are so excited about having a little extra, and you start making some plans. Maybe you will go on a trip. Or maybe you will buy those cool boots. Or you may even pay off that credit card. Then the transmission blows, costing that $2,000. Or you have an emergency medical or dental procedure that costs $2,000. What is that mechanism that wants us to stay in place? What is this process that keeps us invested in the distraction rather than full expression?

Blackberry Essence for Dealing with Immobility

Blackberry essence works with us to break through our personal underbrush. We may be tangled in our vision, dreams, and projects. We don't know where one starts and the other ends, and we find ourselves dealing with immobility even though we can clearly see what we want and how we can get there. The problem is that there is often something in the way. We get stuck by being stuck.
