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 exploration and also a fast-evolving treatment within the area of Power Psychology which is catching the interest of therapists, scientists, fortune-tellers as well as lay individuals.

Usually referred to as "Psychological acupressure", the technique works by releasing obstructions within the energy system which are the resource of emotional strength as well as discomfort. These blockages in our power system, in addition to testing us mentally, often lead to limiting ideas as well as practices and a lack of ability to live life harmoniously. Resulting symptoms are either emotional and/ or physical as well as include uncertainty and also self esteem, sensation stuck nervous or depressed, or the development of uncontrollable and habit forming practices. It is also currently ultimately widely approved that emotional disharmony is a key factor in physical signs as well as dis-ease and for this reason these techniques are being thoroughly utilized on physical concerns, including chronic illness with typically astonishing results. Because of this these techniques are being approved a growing number of in clinical as well as psychiatric circles as well as in the series of psychiatric therapies and also healing techniques.

An EFT treatment involves using fingertips instead of needles to tap on the end points of power meridians that are positioned just underneath the surface area of the skin. The therapy is non-invasive and also services the ethos of making change as easy and as discomfort cost-free as possible.

EFT is a sound judgment strategy that draws its power from Eastern explorations that have actually been around for over 5,000 years. In fact Albert Einstein likewise told us back in the 1920's that every little thing (including our bodies) is made up of energy. These suggestions have been mainly disregarded by Western Recovery Practices and also as they are introduced in our current times, human procedure is resuming itself to the neglected truth that everything is Energy and the capacity that this uses us.

In the short time since it's beginning by Gary Craig in the 1990's, EFT has actually supplied thousands of people with relief from all manner of issues and problems, often in amazingly double-quick time as well as after long as well as excruciating durations of searching for a cure. The diversity of effective treatments have actually ranged from trauma as well as misuse, anxieties, self messing up behaviour patterns, to deep collection emotional problems of anxiety and also anxiety, dependencies, physical disease, to call but a couple of.

EFT is drawing attention from the wide spectrum of recovery professionals; from the scientists to the spiritualists and every person between. It is at the heart of the rejoining of the old and also new paradigms.

EFT recovers understanding and rely on the all-natural recovery capacities of our mind and body, providing ground-breaking chances to accomplishing physical and emotional wellness in a faster period.

Since the techniques are so basic, they can be made use of successfully as a self-help device, which equips individuals to actively add to their own healing and growth procedure. This promotes a much faster relief process, previously thought difficult by health care professionals that promoted lengthy (& commonly uncomfortable) hrs in psychotherapeutic or medical care, commonly with minimal results. These techniques do not challenge the medical as well as psychotherapeutic occupations, but rather offer to add to an alternative healing procedure.

EFT functions to remove such disruptions as well as remove the resulting emotional action or intensity to restore emotional harmony and also deal relief from physical pain.

This is done by concentrating on the details trouble whilst touching with fingers on completion factors of energy meridians. The mix of sending out kinetic energy to our power system, whilst revealing and concentrating on root causes, helps with a "correcting" of the energy system therefore getting rid of the "brief circuit" to the body's found out response or adverse emotion.

It started in 1980, with a psychologist by the name of Roger Callahan, and a patient with a severe anxiety of water. Mary's concern of water regulated her life and kept her from daily tasks.

Dr. Callahan and Mary had been functioning on this issue with each other for over a year. Mary worked up the nerve to sit within sight of the pool at Dr. Callahan's home.

Dr. Callahan had actually lately been researching typical Chinese medications, and also discovering concerning meridians. Keeping in mind that there was an acupuncture point for the tummy meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to tap there, believing it might treat her belly discomforts.

Even extra remarkably, her anxiety of water went away, as well! She ran down to the pool and started sprinkling herself with water, rejoicing in her newly found freedom from fear.

Based upon this discovery, Dr. Callahan started a series of investigations to establish as well as refine this technique, which he called Thought Area Therapy. Gary Craig educated 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, aspects that he saw were unneeded complications.

TFT needed practitioners to tap on a certain sequence of meridians (called a formula) for every different issue. Diagnosing the issue required a technique called muscular tissue screening, wherein the expert would certainly measure the family member stamina of a muscular tissue, while the client explored various thoughts or declarations.

Gary observed repeated scenarios where the trouble was incorrectly identified or the practitioner touched out the meridian points in the wrong order, yet the patient was still aided. Based upon these observations, he concluded that it did not matter where order the meridian factors were tapped.

Gary Craig created EFT as a simplified, boosted version of the principles behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one fundamental, straightforward sequence of indicate tap, whatever the situation.

Due to the fact that of this, thousands of individuals have utilized Tapping for diseases and to settle emotional troubles. Tapping specialists have actually researched the techniques and also trained to take on extra complicated and tough instances, and these committed experts report more effective applications daily.
