    EFT - Tapping Through Your Blocks and Worries with EFT Universe's Dawson Church

    in Self Help

    EFT means "Emotional Freedom Techniques" and is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease. Clinical trials have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress.  Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, and accelerate healing.


    Dawson Church, PhD, has edited or authored many books, and collaborated with leading authorities including Larry Dossey, Bernie Siegel, Christiane Northrup, and others. His award-winning book, The Genie in Your Genes, pioneers the field of Epigenetics, explaining the remarkable self-healing mechanisms now emerging at the juncture of emotion and gene expression. He has authored numerous scientific studies through the Foundation for Epigenetic Medicine, and is the editor of Energy Psychology, a peer-reviewed journal. He shares how to apply these breakthroughs to health and athletic performance at EFT Universe, one of the largest alternative medicine sites on the web.


    The new edition of the EFT Manual is authored by Dawson Church PhD, Executive Director of the National Institute for Integrative Healthcare, who has conducted many clinical trials of EFT. Says Church, “This comprehensive yet user-friendly version of the manual makes EFT understandable to the many medical professionals who are using it in primary care settings, as well as the millions of people who use it as a self-help practice.”


    The book covers 48 distinct techniques used in Clinical EFT, the method used in research. EFT has been used successfully to remediate PTSD in veterans and other traumatized groups, and the new edition includes specialized “gentle” techniques for working with psychological trauma as well as physical diseases.

    BLACKOUT MEDIA CHANGING THE NARRATIVE OF BLACKS IN THE MEDIA

    in Self Help

    Butterfly Evolution is turning the mic over to Amber Ivy and Jeremy Johnson/Blackout Media.  Blackout Media reports...


    According to the New Pittsburgh Courier and Free Press, there were some 18 black-owned stations in 2006, only 1.3% of all TV stations. In 2012 that number dropped to 5 and by 2013 it was zero due to buyouts by larger companies.


    It is painful to see how our black brothers and sisters are portrayed on the news, television, and even movies. In 2015, directors continue to deal with systematic issues that cause black films with good storylines to not get funded because there is not a market for "good black films".


    We have a trillion dollar buying power, so guess what WE are the market FOR?  Join us as we discuss blacks in media and changing the narrative.  We will also discuss the Black America 2.0 campaign to blackout media starting in May.  Any media that continuously shows blacks in less than desirable light, we encourage you to stop watching. Yes to include, Hip Hop and Reality TV.  


    Join Butterfly Evolution in welcoming Blackout Media, Host, Tammy Gaitor and Rodney Jordan are looking forward to this discussion. Listen/comment at 818-691-7406 or register as a follower of the show in order to join the live chat.  www.blogtalkradio.com/butterflyevolution.org

    Thugs running wild or the voices of the unheard?

    in Culture

    Richard Sherman attempted to bring this to light almost two years ago, Larry Wilmore has sparked even more debate, & even a clown like Charles Barkley has acknowledged the fact that “Thug” has become the new N-word. Dog-whistle politics & coded racism has been a staple in mainstream media for decades. Since the murder of Freddie Gray & the riots that have taken place in Baltimore coded racism is being thrown around more than ever. We will discuss this topic in depth on this week’s episode of Tee & Jay Radio.
