Blasting Blocks with Hematite and Garnish

So, how do you feel about garnish?

Yesterday morning, while making my breakfast green smoothie, and choosing to save one of the strawberries as garnish for my glass, I had this unsettling college memory resurface:  A girlfriend had invited me to her dorm-room to study together.  She offered me a glass of pink-lemonade, and she added a lemon-wedge to the glass.  With a brightly colored bendy straw, too.

As she was slicing the lemon, I remember protesting… telling her to not go through all that trouble.  I didn’t feel used to it.  Or deserving of it.  A wedge of lemon!  She ignored me and, instead, created the most lavish glass of lemonade ever made.  I tried my best to simply enjoy it.  But I was too busy feeling guilty and puritanical.  As if that wedged lemon caused a harmful global deficit.

Thankfully, I’m not in that place anymore.  I’m an unapologetic sensualist now, who takes full advantage of my glorious nervous system.  But remembering how much I shrinked away from that piece of garnish… feeling like the added color, beauty, effort, citrus-zing, was some monumental prize I wasn’t worthy of… it revealed a lot to me about my former state of self-worth, deservedness and pleasure.

I see now that working through this book with such a wide-open expectancy is going to cause quakes and cleanses.  And I welcome them, because I want to be free of those lurking programs that cause me to downplay my value.

More garnish, please!

And add a little hematite, while you’re at it.

Wedding bands.  Cross-necklaces.  Military dog-tags.  Corporate ID badges.  Blonde highlights.  Fluevog shoes.  We all have things we wear as statements or as reminders.

Yesterday I picked up a pocket-sized piece of hematite (which shares the properties of magnetite that I mentioned in an earlier post) to remind me that:  I am magnetic; I attract and share great things; and I am deserving of such!
