Cerato is the remedy for people who lack faith in their judgement. Faced with the need to make a choice they can come to a decision without too much trouble – something which differentiates them sharply from people in a Scleranthus state. Problems come after the decision is made. Doubts creep in and they are no longer sure if what they have decided is right. They go around asking for the opinions and advice of others, and end up confused or doing something that they know in their hearts is not right.
Cerato helps us have more faith in our judgement so that we can listen to our inner voice and trust our intuition.
Horses with Cerato imbalance suffer from a lack of self-assurance and confidence. They follow and copy others and seeking for approval in almost everything they do. They rarely show initiative. They overly depend on their human caretakers, cannot relate with members of their own species, remain juvenile in behavior and lack confidence as a general characteristic. Because of this behavior they might look foolish, but they are certainly not, it is their insecurity that makes them indecisive. They tend to be very sensitive to criticism, so show or make fun of them will only make the problem worse. Your conscious attention and patience in taking things slow, and one at the time is what they need to increase their self-esteem.
The remedy Cerato helps to hear that inner voice, listen to it and let you guide by it. These horses will no longer be dependent on the judgment of others and develops their inner wisdom and strong intuition. With certainty, they can now make clear judgments and show with confidence what they want by taking initiative.
Things to look for:
- Horses who seem to need more reassurance than others
- Horses who copy other horses more readily than most, and so behave out of character
“Those who have not sufficient confidence in themselves to make their own decisions. They constantly seek advice from others, and are often misguided.” Dr. Edward Bach ~
