The essence

Cerato is for people who distrust their own inner voice. They are convinced that others know better. Own decisions can only be wrong. Such deep self-doubt can keep you remaining in stagnancy, since each poor decision could aggravate the mess you are in. While a Cerato personality is still struggling whether to apply for a job or not, it is already taken.

Cerato is apparently unable to make decisions, but seeks the illusion of certainty in the judgment of others. Everyone is asked, no counsel is followed, since with every new advice new doubts arise. In the end he does not come to a decision at all and watches helplessly how others decide for him, sometimes against him.


This flower essence helps you discover an inner guide for life, a sense of how decisions can be taken like an artist has a sense of which color to use. Self-confidence means to trust yourself. Cerato gives us the energy for it.
