This remedy is indicated for those who blame themselves not only for their own mistakes but also for the mistakes of others and in fact for anything that goes wrong!

We may have been severely told off as children and come to believe that everything was our fault.
The purpose of this remedy is to enable us to see that we are not to blame for everything.
We realise that other people also make mistakes and it is not necessary to ‘beat’ ourselves up as we are all perfect just the way we are.
