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 fairly brand-new exploration and also a fast-evolving treatment within the area of Energy Psychology which is capturing the focus of therapists, scientists, fortune-tellers and also lay people.

Commonly referred to as "Mental acupressure", the technique functions by launching clogs within the energy system which are the resource of emotional strength and pain. These obstructions in our power system, along with challenging us mentally, often bring about restricting ideas and behaviors as well as a failure to live life harmoniously. Resulting symptoms are either emotional and/ or physical and include uncertainty and also self-confidence, feeling stuck distressed or clinically depressed, or the development of uncontrollable and also addictive behaviors. It is likewise now ultimately commonly approved that emotional disharmony is a vital consider physical signs and dis-ease and consequently these techniques are being extensively utilized on physical problems, including chronic health problem with often impressive results. As such these techniques are being approved more and more in medical as well as psychiatric circles in addition to in the variety of psychotherapies and recovery techniques.

An EFT therapy includes using fingertips as opposed to needles to tap on completion points of energy meridians that are positioned simply beneath the surface of the skin. The treatment is non-invasive and also deals with the ethos of making adjustment as simple and as discomfort totally free as feasible.

EFT is a sound judgment technique that draws its power from Eastern explorations 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 made up of energy. These ideas have been mainly neglected by Western Recovery Practices and also as they are revealed in our present times, human procedure is resuming itself to the neglected fact that everything is Energy and also the capacity that this offers us.

In the short time because it's inception by Gary Craig in the 1990's, EFT has supplied thousands of individuals with relief from all type of problems and conditions, commonly in startlingly double-quick time as well as after lengthy as well as uncomfortable durations of looking for a remedy. The variety of successful treatments have ranged from injury and abuse, anxieties, self sabotaging behavior patterns, to deep set emotional conditions of stress and anxiety as well as clinical depression, addictions, physical ailment, to name however a couple of.

EFT is drawing attention from the wide range of healing specialists; from the scientists to the fortune-tellers and also everybody between. It is at the heart of the rejoining of the old and also new standards.

EFT restores understanding and also count on the all-natural healing abilities of our body and mind, offering ground-breaking opportunities to attaining physical and also emotional wellness in a faster time frame.

Because the techniques are so simple, they can be utilized efficiently as a self-help device, which equips individuals to actively add to their own healing as well as growth procedure. This assists in a much faster relief procedure, previously believed impossible by health care experts who supported lengthy (& typically excruciating) hours in psychotherapeutic or healthcare, usually with minimal results. These techniques do not reject the medical and also psychotherapeutic careers, however rather serve to contribute to an all natural recovery procedure.

EFT functions to clear such disturbances and remove the resulting emotional response or strength to bring back emotional harmony and 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 kinetic energy to our energy system, whilst uncovering and also focusing on source, assists in a "straightening" of the power system thereby removing the "short circuit" to the body's learnt response or negative emotion.

It began in 1980, with a psycho therapist by the name of Roger Callahan, as well as a person with an extreme fear of water. Mary's anxiety of water regulated her life as well as maintained her from everyday tasks.

Dr. Callahan and also Mary had been working on this trouble together for over a year. Mary worked up the courage to rest within view of the swimming pool at Dr. Callahan's residence.

Her fear of being near the water triggered Mary stomach discomforts - a common "gut reaction." Dr. Callahan had just recently been studying typical Chinese medicines, and also discovering meridians. Unexpectedly he had an inspiration. Bearing in mind that there was an acupuncture point for the belly meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to touch there, assuming it could heal her tummy discomforts.

Even more amazingly, her anxiety of water disappeared, as well! She ran down to the pool as well as started sprinkling herself with water, rejoicing in her newly found freedom from worry.

Based upon this discovery, Dr. Callahan started a collection of examinations to establish and improve this technique, which he labelled Idea Field Therapy. 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 issues with TFT, facets that he saw were unnecessary complications.

TFT needed experts to touch on a particular sequence of meridians (called an algorithm) for each and every various trouble. Detecting the issue required a technique called muscle testing, in which the practitioner would certainly measure the family member strength of a muscular tissue, while the person explored various ideas or declarations.

Craig observed repeated situations where the trouble was improperly diagnosed or the expert tapped out the meridian factors in the wrong order, yet the person was still helped. Based on these monitorings, he concluded that it did not matter in which order the meridian factors were touched.

Gary Craig established EFT as a streamlined, improved variation of the ideas behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one standard, straightforward sequence of indicate tap, regardless of what the situation.

Due to the fact that of this, thousands of people have actually made use of Touching for health problems as well as to deal with emotional problems. Touching professionals have actually examined the techniques and educated to take on a lot more challenging as well as tough cases, and also these committed professionals report more effective applications everyday.
