Bach Flower School – Cerato for aligned choices
Julie: a case study in Cerato
Julie is a Toronto born and raised contracts attorney working at a mid-sized downtown law firm. Her goals include making more money and keeping some semblance of a work/life balance.
Let’s consider how her life is now, and then see how the Bach Flower Cerato can help her make more aligned choices so she reaches her goals with greater ease and success.
Julie is a great lawyer with exceptional contract drafting skills. She’s also reluctant to ask for better compensation because she’s nervous about being refused.
However, a week ago Julie finally overcame her fears and requested a salary increase.
To Julie’s extreme disappointment, her request was rejected. The reasons Julie’s firm provided included poor teamwork skills.
On the one hand, Julie feels frustrated that her firm inadequately considered her exceptional legal talents. However, she also understands their perspective regarding teamwork, for she generally agrees with others’ ideas rather than advocating her own. She does this because she trusts the judgment of other attorneys more than hers.
Significant Life Decisions
This inclination of not sufficiently trusting her own instincts repeats itself at home. Julie’s partner Tal is currently pushing to relocate to New York because Tal has been offered a great job there.
Julie feels confused about the situation. On the one hand, she’s opposed to moving because the last thing in the world she wants to have to do is qualify for the New York Bar. In addition, Julie’s entire social network is in Toronto and she hates the idea of losing it.
However, Julie also relates to Tal’s perspective. The job opportunity is fantastic, and were Julie in Tal’s shoes, she might also press for relocation.
Julie figures that in the end, they’ll likely move because that’s what Tal wants, and Julie follows Tal’s lead. Even when there’s a little niggling voice inside of her telling her otherwise, like there is now.
And as if all this wasn’t enough, Julie overstretched during a yoga class two days ago and is now suffering from a painful pulled thigh muscle.
The injury occurred when Julie’s instructor adjusted her stretch against Julie’s better (but unspoken) judgment.
Julie is kicking herself about the injury because even at the time she knew the adjustment was too much, but she didn’t say anything. She kept quiet because she respects her yoga instructor and figured that if her yoga instructor thought her stretch should be deeper, it must be so.

An interesting aside about the Bach Flower Cerato
There are 38 different tinctures in the Bach Flower set, and all of the flower essences save for Cerato are created from wildflowers. Dr. Edward Bach, the developer of the Bach Flower modality, selected wildflowers for their hardiness.
However, Cerato is a domesticated flower, not a wildflower.
Story has it that for this reason, Dr. Bach deliberated for some time whether or not to include Cerato in the set of Bach Flowers. He ultimately selected Cerato because he was convinced it was the best remedy for the emotional states for which it is intended.
Now, isn’t this absolutely perfect? The Bach Flower Cerato is used to support making aligned choices through listening within and not to how things are “supposed” to be done. And it is the only flower essence in the Bach Flower set created from a domesticated flower, showing how much inner wisdom went into its selection.
Have a wonderful day,
