The following Bach Flowers can help if you have difficulties making  decisions.

Some of us want a lot from life or maybe just some little things to get, but we dont know how  to decide what? where? when? how?

These Flowers have also to do with  not trusting our instincts, not beeing in contact with ourselves.

  • Having a feeling for the right decision, but not trusting your instincts
  • Maybe decision-making is easy, but immediately after that, you always bring your decisions into question
  • always asking others about their opinion for a decision and often beeing misguided
  • collecting a lot of information about anything you want to get, buy, about every decision you need to make~
    but all the information doesn`t help you and confuse you even more, makes it more difficult orunpossible to decide for the right thing
  • getting on others nerves   for asking about their opinion on every little thing
  • Following the opinions of others is not a good choice and after You`ve  decided something on the opinion of others, you mostly say ” oh, this wasn`t a good decision, I should have followed my own insticts. I knew better!

Differentiation of Bach Flowers for indecisiveness  and insecurity:

CERATO – everyday decision problems and always asking others, collecting information, having a feeling, instict for the right decision

WILD OAT – searching for the big plan in life, life-changing decisions, lots of wishes and talents and possibilities

SCLERANTHUS – mostly a decision between 2 options, NOT asking others,
beeing more the quitely suffering, silent type of person, positive feeling for the one or other option changes quickly

Maybe you need 2 flower remedies of the above mentioned:
Wild Oat and Scleranthus or Wild Oat and Cerato

Scleranthus and Cerato at the same time doesnt make sense. Maybe you are in a Cerato state for a while and some other time in a Scleranthus state. Then choose the one remedy that represents your state of mind right now.
