When she was only four years old, she could play the guitar very well. I think her talent was flourished too soon.
She was a child prodigy.
Is the bold part correct? The verb flourish is correct? Or you suggest another verb?
'I think her talent blossomed too soon.'
'I think she peaked too soon.'
Both of those presuppose that her talent subsequently diminished.
"Flourished" is OK, but you don't need "was".
