This is a fundraiser video to help raise $150,000 to Empower the Philippines by releasing the traumas of over 10,000 children and building 200 sustainable buildings including schools.

On November 8th, Typhoon Haiyan made landfall in the Philippines. The Philippine news soon reported that super typhoon Yolanda was responsible for an estimated 10 000 deaths. When the 15 foot (5M) storm surge came, there was no place for the people to go. They were trapped. Many got stuck in their houses where they drowned. Months later, how many people died in the Philippines typhoon is unsure. But the death toll in the Philippines is estimated over 7000.

After the Philippines typhoon, those who survived struggled for days without food, shelter or clean drinking water. By the roadside, scores of corpses were piled high. The stench of rotting flesh filled the air.

Tacloban went through the most severe trauma of all the islands. The trauma these people experienced is unfathomable. Our initial focus to bring emotional release and empowerment will begin here.

Emotional relief (in the form of EFT: Emotional Freedom Techniques or “tapping” – visit our site for more info on this scientifically proven to work technique to rapidly release negative emotions and overcome trauma) is just part of the empowerment.

When visiting the islands, I saw many living in makeshift tents. The islanders lost their houses, and schools. With their schools detroyed and without houses, there was no place to stay safe from the threat of another storm.

Since both the Volunteer teams “Yong Pioneer Disaster Response Team” and “Volunteer in Cebu” were already involved in rebuilding schools, and had plans to build sustainable houses, if they could get further funding, it was obvious we needed all to join forces to offer a more complete program for their empowerment.

We need $150 000 or more to heal & empower the Philippines. With this money we will:

1 Provide Emotional Empowerment

– Release 10,000 traumas
– Train 100 Filipino psychologists in EFT

2 Provide Safety Empowerment

– Build 200 sustainable houses
– Build 5 storm-proof classrooms

The more money you donate to the Philippines relief efforts, the more help we can offer.

Thank you for your support!

EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique - is a relatively brand-new discovery and a fast-evolving therapy within the area of Power Psychology which is capturing the focus of healers, researchers, spiritualists and also lay individuals.

Typically referred to as "Psychological acupressure", the technique functions by releasing clogs within the power system which are the source of emotional strength as well as pain. These blockages in our energy system, in addition to challenging us mentally, typically lead to restricting ideas and behaviours and an inability to live life harmoniously.

An EFT treatment includes making use of fingertips instead of needles to touch on completion factors of energy meridians that are situated simply below the surface of the skin. The therapy is non-invasive as well as services the values of making adjustment as easy and also as discomfort free as possible.

EFT is a common sense approach that draws its power from Eastern discoveries that have been around for over 5,000 years. Actually Albert Einstein likewise informed us back in the 1920's that whatever (including our bodies) is composed of energy. These concepts have actually been greatly neglected by Western Healing Practices and as they are revealed in our present times, human process is resuming itself to the failed to remember truth that every little thing is Energy and the capacity that this uses us.

In the short time since it's creation by Gary Craig in the 1990's, EFT has actually supplied thousands of people with remedy for all manner of problems and also problems, typically in startlingly double-quick time as well as after lengthy and agonizing durations of searching for a cure. The variety of effective treatments have actually varied from injury and misuse, fears, self screwing up behaviour patterns, to deep set emotional problems of anxiousness and clinical depression, dependencies, physical ailment, to name yet a couple of.

EFT is upstaging the broad range of recovery professionals; from the researchers to the spiritualists and everybody in between. It goes to the heart of the rejoining of the old and also brand-new standards.

EFT brings back recognition and rely on the natural recovery capacities of our mind and body, providing ground-breaking chances to accomplishing physical and also emotional well-being in a faster period.

Because the techniques are so simple, they could be used properly as a self-help device, which encourages individuals to actively contribute to their own healing as well as advancement procedure. This promotes a much faster relief procedure, formerly thought difficult by health care specialists who advocated prolonged (& often excruciating) hours in psychotherapeutic or treatment, usually with limited outcomes. These techniques do not challenge the medical and also psychotherapeutic professions, however rather offer to add to an all natural recovery process.

EFT works to clear such interruptions and eliminate the resulting emotional action or strength to bring back emotional consistency and deal remedy for physical pain.

This is done by focusing on the details issue whilst touching with fingers on the end points of energy meridians. The combination of sending kinetic energy to our energy system, whilst uncovering as well as focusing on root causes, facilitates a "straightening" of the power system thereby eliminating the "brief circuit" to the body's learnt reaction or negative emotion.

It started in the 1980s, with a psychologist by the name of Roger Callahan, and also an individual with an extreme phobia of water. Mary's concern of water controlled her life and kept her from everyday tasks. She was incapable to take her kids to the beach and also was unable to drive near the sea; she grew afraid when it drizzled, and also might not even endure the sight of water on television. She had dazzling headaches including water.

Callahan as well as Mary had actually been working with this problem together for over a year. Lastly, Mary developed the guts to rest within sight of the pool at Dr. Callahan's house. Also doing this triggered Mary extreme distress, and though she discovered ways to manage the intense worry as well as emotional discomfort, she did not overcome her fear. They discussed her issue, as well as how to conquer it, yet without success.

Dr. Callahan had actually just recently been examining conventional Chinese medications, as well as discovering about meridians. Keeping in mind that there was an acupuncture factor for the stomach meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to tap there, believing it might heal her stomach pains.

Also more astonishingly, her fear of water vanished, also! She ran down to the pool and also started sprinkling herself with water, expressing joy in her newly found freedom from fear.

Based on this discovery, Dr. Callahan started a collection of investigations to establish and also refine this technique, which he labelled Thought Area Treatment. Gary Craig trained under Dr. Callahan's tutelage in the 1990's, learning the procedures for TFT. As time passed, Craig started to observe some troubles with TFT, facets that he saw were unnecessary issues.

TFT called for specialists to touch on a specific series of meridians (called a formula) for every different problem. Identifying the problem called for a technique called muscle mass testing, where the professional would certainly measure the relative strength of a muscular tissue, while the patient checked out numerous thoughts or declarations.

Gary Craig observed duplicated scenarios in which the problem was improperly identified or the professional tapped out the meridian factors in the wrong order, yet the client was still aided. Based upon these observations, he wrapped up that it did not matter where order the meridian points were touched.

Gary Craig created EFT as a streamlined, enhanced variation of the ideas behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one basic, basic sequence of points to touch, whatever the scenario.

Because of this, countless individuals have actually utilized Tapping for ailments as well as to solve emotional troubles. Touching specialists have actually examined the techniques and also trained to take on much more difficult and also difficult situations, and these committed practitioners report even more effective applications daily. A growing number of people are discovering and exploring Tapping. Several are discovering exactly how Tapping can change their lives.
