Apples are sacred and special to many pantheons. The Celts believed that their sacred isle of Avalon was the Isle of Apples; the heroes of the Nordic lands ate apples for strength and health. Modern nutrition tells us the apple is the source of many essential nutrients and promotes good health. Magically, the apple is used for love, power, and healing. Cut the apple across its waist rather than the traditional way and see the seeds arranged in a five-pointed star, the pentacle. Name each point of the pentacle for the magic you wish to invoke in a general way ("healing, magic, rest, power, love") or more specifically ("strong feet, strong hands, steady head, calm stomach, strong heart"). Chant your pentacle mindfully as you eat the apple. With each bite, chew and swallow, envisioning those things filling you.
