The Apple Experiment (The Power of Words)

by JulieSouthgate on December 16, 2015

A few months ago I attended our local yes group meeting with Nikki Owen of The Charisma Model and I was reminded about the apple experiment that I had heard of previously. I came home and decided to try the experiment for myself.

Basically, the apple experiment proves the power of our words, including thoughts, on ourselves, our family, our friends and work colleagues and when you see the results it totally makes you aware of how we can be damaging our bodies by sending negative words towards it. Working with my clients, I often make them aware of the language they choose for themselves and once you have an awareness of something you are able to change it. The results of this experiment aids the way you treat yourself and others. Self-love is the most important type of love. “Be your own best friend.” “Make yourself number one in your own life.”

So, to begin, you take an apple and cut it in half. You place each half of the apple into its own jar and seal it so that it becomes airtight. Next, you label one jar ‘LOVE’ and the other jar ‘HATE’. For the next two weeks you speak lovingly to the apple in the Love jar (Yes, it feels silly at first but if you want to prove a point this needs to be done!) You’ve probably guessed by now that also in the two weeks you speak harshly and angrily to the apple in the Hate jar (quite good for anger releasing actually!) The apple in the Hate jar can also be ignored and not spoken to at all, this has the same effect.

3 Days


After 3 Days the apples are doing well but some brown spots are appearing on the Hate apple.



8 Days



After 8 Days it is much clearer to see the deterioration in the Hate apple and the Love apple only has one small brown mark on it.





12 DaysAfter 12 Days the Hate apple is covered in bruises and mould and the Love apple has the beginnings of more brown marks but still quite a lot of whiteness.

15 Days

15 Days and the end of our experiment shows how much more slowly the Love apple deteriorated than the Hate apple.

So there it is… Pictures and evidence of how negative words or being ignored can affect us and the difference when we are treated lovingly and direct positive thoughts and words towards ourselves and others. Apples are used in this experiment as they are made up of 84% water. Human bodies are approximately 60% water and the brain is 95% water!

“If we are able to create this level of decay with our words and thoughts in an apple, just imagine the effect of our own negative self-talk on our bodies” ~ Nikki Owen

Will this experiment now change your own self talk from negative to positive? Be aware of the power of your words and thoughts.
