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 Power Psychology which is capturing the interest of therapists, researchers, fortune-tellers and lay people.

Commonly referred to as "Mental acupressure", the technique functions by launching clogs within the energy system which are the source of emotional strength and also pain. These clogs in our power system, in enhancement to challenging us mentally, typically lead to restricting ideas as well as behaviours and a lack of ability to live life harmoniously.

An EFT therapy entails the use of 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 treatment is non-invasive and also deals with the values of making change as straightforward and also as pain totally free as possible.

EFT is a good sense approach that attracts its power from Eastern discoveries that have actually been around for over 5,000 years. Albert Einstein also informed us back in the 1920's that every little thing (including our bodies) is made up of power. These ideas have been greatly ignored by Western Healing Practices and also as they are unveiled in our current times, human procedure is resuming itself to the neglected fact that everything is Energy and also the capacity that this offers us.

In the brief time given that it's beginning by Gary Craig in the 1990's, EFT has provided countless individuals with relief from all type of problems and problems, commonly in amazingly quick time and also after lengthy and also unpleasant periods of searching for a remedy. The variety of effective treatments have actually varied from injury and misuse, fears, self sabotaging practices patterns, to deep collection emotional conditions of anxiousness and clinical depression, addictions, physical ailment, to call yet a few.

EFT is drawing attention from the wide spectrum of recovery specialists; from the researchers to the spiritualists and every person between. It goes to the heart of the rejoining of the old and new standards.

EFT restores understanding and also trust in the natural healing abilities of our mind and body, offering ground-breaking possibilities to achieving physical as well as emotional well-being in a faster amount of time.

Since the techniques are so basic, they could be utilized successfully as a self-help tool, which empowers individuals to actively add to their own healing as well as development process. This promotes a much faster relief process, formerly thought impossible by medical care professionals that promoted extensive (& commonly painful) hrs in psychotherapeutic or treatment, usually with limited outcomes. These techniques do not challenge the medical and psychotherapeutic professions, but instead serve to add to an alternative recovery process.

EFT functions to clear such disturbances as well as get rid of the resulting emotional reaction or strength to restore emotional consistency and also offer remedy for physical discomfort.

This is done by concentrating on the particular issue whilst touching with fingers on completion points of power meridians. The combination of sending kinetic energy to our power system, whilst revealing as well as focusing on origin, helps with a "straightening out" of the energy system thus removing the "brief circuit" to the body's discovered reaction or unfavorable emotion.

It began in the 1980s, with a psychologist by the name of Roger Callahan, and also a patient with an extreme fear of water. Mary's fear of water managed her life and maintained her from everyday tasks. She was incapable to take her children to the coastline and also was incapable to drive near the ocean; she expanded scared when it drizzled, and also could not even hold up against the view of water on TV. She had vivid headaches involving water.

Dr. Callahan as well as Mary had been functioning on this issue together for over a year. Mary worked up the nerve to rest within view of the swimming pool at Dr. Callahan's home.

Dr. Callahan had actually recently been examining traditional Chinese medicines, as well as finding out regarding meridians. Remembering that there was an acupuncture point for the belly meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to touch there, thinking it may cure her tummy pains.

Mary tapped her cheekbone as directed, and also this little action altered medicinal background! The response appeared incredible, to both Mary and Dr. Callahan. Her belly discomforts vanished. However much more astonishingly, her fear of water vanished, too! She diminished to the pool and also started sprinkling herself with water, enjoying her newfound freedom from fear.

Based on this discovery, Dr. Callahan began a series of investigations to develop and improve this technique, which he described Thought Field Treatment. Gary Craig educated under Dr. Callahan's tutoring in the 1990's, discovering the procedures for TFT. As time passed, Craig began to observe some troubles with TFT, facets that he saw were unnecessary complications.

TFT called for specialists to tap on a specific series of meridians (called an algorithm) for each various issue. Identifying the issue called for a technique called muscular tissue screening, where the expert would certainly determine the relative stamina of a muscle mass, while the client explored numerous ideas or statements.

Craig observed repeated circumstances in which the trouble was inaccurately diagnosed or the specialist tapped out the meridian points in the wrong order, yet the client was still assisted. Based upon these monitorings, he ended that it did not matter in which order the meridian factors were tapped.

Gary Craig created EFT as a simplified, enhanced variation of the principles behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one fundamental, basic series of points to touch, no matter what the circumstance.

Because of this, thousands of people have used Tapping for diseases and also to solve emotional issues. Touching specialists have examined the techniques and trained to take on more complex as well as tough instances, and these dedicated experts report even more successful applications day-to-day.
