Transformation Goddess Interviews
Award Winning Author, Mali Apple
When Joe and I met eleven years ago, we immediately began a conversation about love, life, relationships, and spirituality—a conversation that has continued to this day. I couldn’t imagine letting our ideas just slip away, so I took notes on our conversations right from the start.
We eventually realized that our own relationship was something quite special: we are honestly as connected as I can imagine two people can be. We realized that we could just keep enjoying this very special connection for as long as we lived—or we could write about what was making it possible in order to help others have their own “soulmate experiences.” We spent the next four years going even deeper into our ideas, sharing our discoveries with others, and putting it all together in a book we called The Soulmate Experience: A Practical Guide to Creating Extraordinary Relationships.
In the four years since that book was published, we’ve coached people around the world in applying our ideas to their own lives and relationships. Their questions about how to keep their sexual relationships passionate and compelling led us to new answers—and to this sequel.
My most influential teachers have been books. Having been a nonfiction book editor for over two decades before becoming an author, I simply think in books. There’s something about holding a volume of wisdom in your hands, being able to turn to it whenever you could use inspiration, that makes me feel warm and safe and supported. So being able to share, through our own books, what we’ve discovered about love, passion, happiness, and connection is just a joy!
What lessons will women come away with after reading your book?
For one, that our bodies are here to be loved, cherished, honored, and enjoyed—just as they are. That we can fully own both our feminine and our masculine energies and, in so doing, come into our full potential as human beings. That our natural aging process is something we can embrace and allow to contribute to our experience rather than detract from it. That there is so much we can heal through our sexual connection. That love, intimacy, and passion are boundless. And that there may well be more paths to our own pleasure than we’ve been imagining!
What is your heart message and how does it help women?
Intimate, sexual, passionate connection involves all aspects of our beings, not just our bodies—and certainly not just our genitals! So much of what we women are already more open to, such as the languages of the heart, intuition, and the like, are essential to deep, lasting intimacy—and they are available to everyone. So one of the topics we go deeply into in this book is how to invite one’s partner to open up and deepen our connection—not only on a sexual level, but on every level.
How are you uniquely qualified to teach and serve women?
Writing and coaching together with Joe actually helps me immensely in my own work with women, because of having access to such a thoughtful and intuitive male’s perspective.
What is the most difficult obstacle you’ve experienced and overcome?
I grew up in a family consumed by fear in all its forms: anger, suspicion, jealousy, rage, and resentment were our daily fare. I don’t recall ever hearing the word “love” being used in my household. When I left home at 19, I was on a mission to find another way to do this thing called “family” and “relationship.” I read and studied and traveled and read some more. Eventually I began my own spiritual group, a group that met weekly for seven years, to continue exploring these questions and ideas more deeply. When I met Joe, everything came together. It is very clear to me now that my childhood experiences, and my desire to overcome them, are precisely what led me to be ready for such an amazing, soul-deep connection with another human being.
Now that you’ve birthed your second book, what are you focusing on?
At some point during the writing of The Soulmate Experience, we realized that we weren’t to write just one book, that there would be a sequel. About halfway through the creation of The Soulmate Lover, we knew that this was actually to be a three-book series. It honestly feels like we were meant to be together in this lifetime for this purpose, so it is a joy and an honor to just continue our journey together, writing, coaching, and offering workshops for singles and couples. We are truly grateful for this incredible experience!
