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 new exploration and a fast-evolving therapy within the area of Energy Psychology which is capturing the interest of therapists, scientists, fortune-tellers as well as lay people.

Frequently referred to as "Psychological acupressure", the technique works by releasing obstructions within the power system which are the source of emotional intensity as well as discomfort. These clogs in our energy system, in enhancement to testing us emotionally, commonly lead to restricting ideas and also practices and also an inability to live life sympathetically.

An EFT treatment entails using fingertips as opposed to needles to touch on completion factors of energy meridians that are located just underneath the surface of the skin. The therapy is non-invasive and works with the ethos of making modification as straightforward and as discomfort free as possible.

EFT is a good sense approach that draws its power from Eastern explorations that have been around for over 5,000 years. In fact Albert Einstein also told us back in the 1920's that whatever (including our bodies) is made up of energy. These suggestions have actually been mostly ignored by Western Healing Practices and as they are introduced in our current times, human procedure is resuming itself to the neglected truth that whatever is Energy as well as the capacity that this uses us.

In the short time considering that it's creation by Gary Craig in the 1990's, EFT has given countless people with remedy for all manner of problems and problems, commonly in amazingly double-quick time and after lengthy and uncomfortable durations of searching for a remedy. The variety of effective treatments have actually varied from injury and also misuse, fears, self undermining behaviour patterns, to deep collection emotional conditions of anxiety as well as clinical depression, addictions, physical ailment, to name but a couple of.

EFT is upstaging the wide range of healing specialists; from the scientists to the spiritualists and everybody in between. It is at the heart of the rejoining of the old as well as new standards.

EFT restores understanding and rely on the natural recovery capabilities of our mind and body, giving ground-breaking possibilities to accomplishing physical and also emotional well-being in a faster timespan.

Since the techniques are so basic, they can be used efficiently as a self-help device, which empowers people to actively add to their own recovery and advancement process. This promotes a much faster alleviation process, formerly thought difficult by health care experts who promoted prolonged (& usually uncomfortable) hrs in psychotherapeutic or medical care, often with limited outcomes. These techniques do not discredit the medical and also psychotherapeutic professions, however instead serve to add to an alternative healing procedure.

EFT works to clear such disturbances as well as remove the resulting emotional response or strength to bring back emotional consistency as well as offer remedy for physical pain.

This is done by focusing on the details problem whilst touching with fingers on completion points of energy meridians. The combination of sending kinetic energy to our energy system, whilst revealing and also concentrating on source, promotes a "straightening out" of the energy system therefore eliminating the "brief circuit" to the body's discovered action or adverse emotion.

It started in 1980, with a psycho therapist by the name of Roger Callahan, as well as a client with an extreme anxiety of water. Mary's anxiety of water managed her life as well as maintained her from everyday activities.

Dr. Callahan and also Mary had actually been working on this problem with each other for over a year. Mary worked up the nerve to rest within sight of the pool at Dr. Callahan's residence.

Dr. Callahan had recently been researching typical Chinese medications, and discovering regarding meridians. Bearing in mind that there was an acupuncture point for the belly meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to tap there, thinking it might treat her belly pains.

Even a lot more incredibly, her anxiety of water vanished, too! She ran down to the pool and also started spraying herself with water, expressing joy in her newfound freedom from concern.

Based on this exploration, Dr. Callahan started a collection of examinations to establish and fine-tune this technique, which he called Idea Area Treatment. Gary Craig trained under Dr. Callahan's tutelage in the 1990's, learning the treatments for TFT. As time passed, Craig began to observe some problems with TFT, facets that he saw were unnecessary complications.

TFT called for specialists to tap on a certain sequence of meridians (called an algorithm) for each different issue. Detecting the problem required a technique called muscle screening, wherein the specialist would certainly measure the relative toughness of a muscle mass, while the person discovered numerous ideas or statements.

Gary Craig observed repeated scenarios in which the issue was incorrectly detected or the specialist tapped out the meridian points in the wrong order, yet the patient was still assisted. Based upon these monitorings, he concluded that it did not matter in which order the meridian factors were tapped.

Craig developed EFT as a simplified, boosted version of the concepts behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one basic, straightforward sequence of indicate touch, whatever the scenario.

Since of this, thousands of people have made use of Tapping for ailments and also to settle emotional problems. Tapping specialists have actually studied the techniques and also educated to take on extra difficult and also difficult cases, and also these committed practitioners report even more successful applications everyday.
