Apple Essence doesn’t heal physical symptoms, as explained in an earlier chapter. It does, however, aid in stimulating the mindset that promotes true healing. Whatever we feed into our bodies is, in part, what they become. Remember the fashionable saying, “you are what you eat.” A healthy mental diet is the keynote of Apple. This essence can help us to remain always calmly active and actively calm. While a diet of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains is health-promoting to the body, so also a mental diet of courage, wisdom and happiness is clarifying to the mind and the feelings of the heart.
“I took Apple for fear of a repeat experience,” explained a chiropractor, forty years of age and working on clarity related to his physical constitution. “Three months ago, I suffered a mild stroke with resultant motor loss in my right hand. I experienced four strokes in five days from a narrowing of the carotid artery. This was unexplainable since I’ve had low cholesterol all my life and have been vegetarian since I was eighteen.”
The doctor admitted to a serious fear of illness and disability, saying that he would rather lose his life than the use of his hands. “I use my hands to heal and I love my work. Literally within half an hour of taking Apple, my mental clarity returned. I felt safe and whole and that I would get better. The healing was dramatic from that point on. I experienced a really strong sense of inner well-being.” He also reported that he has regained ninety percent movement and usage of his right hand.
The positive Apple state reveals an understanding of the importance of clarity on all levels-a spiritual diet of meditation, proper breathing and uplifting company and reading material; a certain brightness to our thought processes; and health-promoting exercise, diet and living habits to restore us to perfect well-being.
People who are strong in the positive Apple qualities are often drawn to health-related fields of work, including physically, psychologically, or spiritually. Their clarity of energy is invigorating to their clients.
Apple is also indicated for recovery periods following surgery, illness or accidents-or any time we are wanting to regain the subtle balance between the body, mind and spirit. “I muscle-tested (kinesiology) much stronger with Apple,” one man wrote following a hip replacement surgery. “When I started taking it, I felt much better.”
Apple deals directly with the law of magnetism. When we embrace mental and physical health, we draw to ourselves more of the same. When we live with a lack of peace, we draw exactly that. When we catch that flu that’s been going around-the one that took half the office staff by surprise-it may be the magnet of our own fear and resultant sense of susceptibility that opens the door and invites it in! If your attitude is, “Oh, I’m going to get sick, I just know it”-you’re probably right.
The negative Apple state manifests as “the fear that magnetizes fear,” especially if infused with enough energy. In fact, we could even define fear as a negative wish, phrased as innocently as, “Gee, I hope I don’t get sick.” Have you ever experienced a fear of:
- a problem recurring
- a communicable or terminal illness
- catching that “something going around”
- an imagined illness with no substantiation (hypochondria)
- diseases we read or hear about
- illnesses to which we are genetically predisposed
Add to this list any worry, doubt or the absence of mental clarity, and we have the indications for taking Apple. Remember that the presence of any one of the above thought patterns is reason enough to administer this clarity-promoting essence.
Repeat the Apple affirmation several times a day, especially when feeling a lack of clarity.
Practice the Apple visualization whenever you feel the need.
Eat “an apple a day,” and associate the crisp freshness of its taste and texture with the clarity of your thoughts.
Spend ten minutes a day in direct sunlight with a good sunscreen, either in the early morning or late afternoon. Consciously draw the sun’s healing energy into your mind and body.
For this visualization, you’ll either need to be out in direct sunlight, or to imagine that you are.
Now, sit on a patch of grass. Place your palms face down beside you, directly on the greenery. Connect with the earth. Feel its magnetism of strength and solidity flowing into your palms, up your arms and radiating throughout your entire body. You and the earth are one. Its wholeness is yours.
Now turn your palms comfortably upward in such a way that they can receive the sunlight pouring into them. Be as receptive as possible, much like an empty vessel. Draw in the sunlight. Let its healing rays find a home in your hands. Through the posture of upturned palms, imagine that your entire consciousness is uplifted, broadened and expanded. Feel your body, mind and spirit drinking deeply of this direct source of life force. Your thoughts are as radiantly clear as the sunlight.
