I'm sure that you've had moments in your life when you are in the "zone" - you just know what to say, and things just work! That's your Apple Tree showing up - the you that knows just what to do and say, effortlessly. When we are in our Apple Tree zone, we impact others lives in a powerful positive way, we inspire, empower and move others. And of course, we also feel fulfilled and "on purpose".

Your Apple Tree is your true, natural, liberated you. An Apple Tree doesn't have a choice about being an Apple Tree. We can fight with our destiny and true nature OR free it. Turns out that freeing our Apple Tree brings incredible peace, joy, wisdom and fulfilment.

Instead of these moments being rare and random, when you FIND your Apple Tree and learn how to 'tune in' to your Apple Tree wisdom, you can operate in this zone all of the time. It does take some focus and practise, but once you find your Apple Tree, it's like discovering gold. You see, the Apple Tree teaches us that we don't have to "become" someone. We only need to free the natural self that is already there.
FIND your Apple Tree. It's waiting for you.

So how do we do this? To FIND your Apple Tree you need, what I call IN-tuition - which is the language of your Apple Tree.
Apple Tree IN-tuition can help you to tune in to your deeper truth, your wisdom and true expression. It can help you to find your path.
What I have seen, is that when you find your Apple Tree and FREE it, you make the difference you were born to make, by being all that you were born to be!

Once we find our Apple Tree, true, powerful, liberated natural self, then it's up to us to fully Realise it. What does this mean?

Our Apple Tree is usually restricted or even totally shut down by one of several inner obstacles. To fully Realise our Apple Tree potential and to realise the truth of our free self, it helps to understand these obstacles. Sometimes by just seeing the obstacles for what they are, they are removed. Some more stubborn inner obstacles need coaching work to remove.

So what obstacles are in the way of our Apple Tree full realisation?
1. The first obstacle is ignorance - not having the knowledge of what we truly are. When we don't know what we really are, we invite the 2nd obstacle, one that causes a lot of suffering...
2. Mistaken identity - we make the mistake of thinking we are something we are not. Like an Apple Tree that doesn't know it's an Apple Tree and then makes the mistake of believing the Orchard of life and thinks that it's purpose it to make oranges.

From these 2 inner obstacles arise many other painful obstacles. Like taking on others burdens, and losing our wholeness, struggling to make decisions and even relationships issues... Once we heal the root obstacle, which is IGNORANCE, then the other obstacles are virtually cut off from their power supply and so they die off. We are liberated.
So after finding the Apple Tree, we work to Realise the true self. Have a look at the Empower step for more about the inner obstacle work that can be done to assist this process.

So now after we find our Apple Tree and Realise it's full expression by removing inner obstacles, it's time to Empower it.

It's no good trying to Empower our Apple Tree and build our dreams until we have the tools to transform our inner obstacles. Inner Obstacles sabotage our success, they are worse than outer obstacles (like money and time). Inner obstacles like fear, procrastination, carrying others burdens, having hidden blocks, etc need to be transformed to give our dreams their best shot at manifestation.

You can work on both, your inner obstacles and dream at the same time, but I do suggest that you don't ignore the power of inner obstacles, so equip yourself to deal with them.

To empower yourself to make your Apple Tree dreams a reality (your career, business or full creative expression) I recommend the following:
1. ILS Master Communicator Coaching Skills
2. ILS 7 Step Dream Builder
3. ILS Empower tools (for inner obstacles)

ILS is my loved brand InnerLifeSkills and coaching system - it contains everything you need to Find, Realise and Empower your Apple Tree self.

For some it is enough to Find, then Realise and then Empower their Apple Tree - they find freedom, success and the heart's joy of doing what they love, and loving what they do. The make a difference and reap the rewards of being their authentic selves.

And then there are a few who feel called to more. For seekers of deep truth the journey is not done until it's done. For them the seeing of the true self must go all the way. We who find ourselves designed to seek total liberation cannot settle for anything less that total truth. The Apple Tree seeks total and complete liberation, it seeks enlightenment.
The good news is that natural real enlightenment is exactly that, natural and real. It happens in board rooms and temples, to anyone, anywhere and is not fluffy - in fact the real process is as gritty and harsh as it is tear evoking awe inspiring liberating. For those who find themselves here, I offer EAT - Enlightened Apple Tree work.
