The first thing to do is simply make one change in your playing. In the basic scale, if you always start playing the flute with all 6 holes covered, then simply start with the third hole from the top covered and the rest uncovered. If you always play in your living room, get outside to play or play in a corner of the house to see what the flute sounds like. Give yourself permission to discover the sounds of the flute and try new things. It doesn't have to be "right" . Your growth as a player is connected to how much exploration you so with your flute. If you have never played to a drum beat, find a simple drumbeat song and play along with it. The moving beyond the basics or the stuck pattern that you are in only requires that you change one or two little things you do. These will quickly become part of your flute playing tool box. Think of yourself as a musical explorer. It's what I do when I play.
Here's to a happy few moments of exploring the flute.!
