Apple Tree- My Experience
I stepped out from my pleasant little apartment for this particular mission, and went on a quest to find a real Apple Tree. I wanted to have my own unique experience before I read about the ancient mythology and the specific meaning of that “fruit of Eden”.
Did I find the Tree?
Oh, I found it! In a small garden by the sea. I often ride a bicycle through that small street so it wasn’t that hard. It is a private garden but no one lives there at the moment and there is no fence. And the tree was quite handsome, with the round leafy treetop and full of red apples. There were apples on the ground too. I took one, nice red juicy apple! I sat down, I leaned against the tree and ate it. While I was eating, I listened to the waves of the sea near by, relaxing, enjoying the sun going down… well scroll up to see the picture again :). That is THE moment.
I remembered the Garden of Eden. They taught us that when Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil everything changed. The first sin! And we are all great sinners!
Is it OK that I don’t feel that way?
I really like to contemplate. To talk to myself. Or God. I don’t know how to describe it, but everything is as if was heavenly orchestrated. And for me, God is good. Pure love. And love is the most important thing of all. When I love myself I am feeling well and my health is good. Love of the self, others and of life connects me with the energies and prosperity of the Universe. Self-love goes hand in hand with self-expression and allows for creativity and fulfilment.
The big lesson I received that day from the Apple Tree:
Love yourself and love your life.

And what does the Ancient Mythology say about the Apple Tree?
Apple is one of the most sacred trees and symbolises good health and future happiness. Since ancient times it has also been known as the “Tree of Love” and it is associated with Aphrodites, goddes of love.
Mother Gaia gave Hera, the supreme goddess, an Apple tree when she married Zeus. The sacred tree was nurtured by the Hesperides, Daughters of Evening, and fiercely guarded by the dragon, Ladon.
The Goddess Idunn is guardian of the apples which she fed to the gods and goddesses so they remain forever young. Apple wands were also used in Norse rituals as they symbolise good health, happiness, wisdom and eternal love.
Celtic mythology often mentions apples as the fruit of the gods that brings a sense of wholeness, healing and connection with nature.
