Today is the International Day of Peace

International-Day-of-Peace

Tapping can help bring peace to our world.

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. The first Peace Day was observed in September 1982.

It is an annual day of non-violence and cease-fire. The United Nations invites all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.

Please join us at Callahan Techniques, and the TFT Foundations in sharing our documentary, From Trauma to Peace. It is due to be released at the end of the month. Help us to create greater awareness that there are powerful tools available to all of us to begin healing the trauma and violence in the world.

View the trailer here and share with all of your mailing lists. WWW.Trauma2Peace.com .

You can learn simple self-help procedures from the TFT Foundation’s free trauma relief site: www.TFTTraumaRelief.wordpress.com .

A Day for Remembering and Healing – September 11

As the 13th anniversary of September 11 approaches, we are reminded of the great need for trauma relief and healing in our world. We remember all those who lost loved ones on that tragic morning. We remember them, as well as the countless others who have suffered in wars and disasters. Please join us in remembering September 11 and offering healing tools to all who know the pain of loss and grief.

There are numerous ways to participate in the healing of trauma through Thought Field Therapy (TFT).

The TFT Foundation’s documentary, From Trauma to Peace, about healing from the genocide in Rwanda is a powerful example of the transformation of a people. Please share this link to the trailer and help us create an awareness that there is a way to transcend trauma and begin healing: www.TFTFoundation.org. Scroll down and view the brief trailer. Perhaps with the healing of trauma we can begin to break the cycles of violence around the world.

If you know someone who has suffered from 9/11, or any other disaster, reach out and share the healing tools of TFT with them. The TFT Foundation’s trauma relief website has the trauma relief protocol in video and print in 14 languages. This material is free to all who need it. The web site is: www.TFTTraumaRelief.wordpress.com.

However you choose to commemorate the 9/11 anniversary, thank you for joining us as we take a day to remember and begin healing others.

New Web Site Resources – “Tools of the Trade” for TFT Practitioners

toolstrade

Now we have one simple place that you can go to find the “tools” that many of our TFT practitioners use for themselves as well as their clients.

We are often asked, Where can I get Rescue Cream?, or, What is a therapeutic dose of zeolite?, or, What is the model # of the voltmeter you use?, I am constantly negative, what can I do about it? These questions and more are mentioned in our special issue of the Thought Field, Tools of the Trade, also found on the web page.

Description, order information and examples are now all in one easy to find location: http://www.rogercallahan.com/tools/

You can feel confident that all of the things we recommend on this page are used and have been tested by us both on ourselves and our clients. We test them with Heart Rate Variability (HRV) as well. Over the years we have searched for the best values for our systems like the HRV scanners we use and the new brainwave EEG system. This represents a valuable resource for TFT practitioners and customers alike.

While none of the so called “tools of the trade” for TFT are needed in order to effectively make improvements, there are several tools that we have used over the last three decades that can greatly enhance our skills, increase our success rate, maintain improvement and improve overall well-being.

These TFT tools are applicable to all levels of TFT users. They are a combination of both time-tested tools that Roger discovered over 30 years ago to some that are just being introduced and even some that we are currently testing.

Some of the articles and cases in the newsletter available on the Tools page will discuss the importance and offer ways of use. Click here to get a copy of the newsletter and visit our new “Tools of the Trade” web page.

 

 

What are the “Tools of the Trade” for Thought Field Therapy (TFT) Practitioners?

tftnewsaugWhile none of the so called “tools of the trade” for TFT are needed in order to do an effective job, there are several tools that we have used over the last three decades that can greatly enhance our skills, increase our success rate, maintain improvement and improve overall well-being.

Tools of trade is a term generally used in bankruptcy law to determine what property a person would commonly use for the purpose of making a living, as items that are tools of trade are separately exempt from attachment with an additional amount above that normally given for a person’s property.

The TFT tools that I share in our latest newsletter (you can download it here) with you are applicable to all levels of TFT users.  They are a combination of both time-tested tools that Roger discovered over 30 years ago to some that are just being introduced and even some that we are currently testing and not even available to the public. 

From Trauma to Peace – Making the Impossible Possible

Exciting news! The TFT Foundation’s documentary From Trauma to Peace is completed and there is a all NEW trailer:

The film is undergoing color correcting, subtitles and credits now and will be submitted to film festivals the first of September.  DVD’s will be available in the next month or so.  Note: There is still room for a couple of sponsors credits so if you would like your name on the film credits contact joanne@TFTfoundation.org .

Earlier this month, Suzanne Connolly, Joanne Callahan and Prosper Ishimwe, their Rwandan translator and TFT trainer, had the privilege of spending a week in Hawaii. They were working on the final shooting, editing, and translations of the documentary, From Trauma to Peace, Making the Impossible Possible.

Tap Away the Blues

Unhappiness Is On The Rise…

Most people really come to TFT and try tapping because they want to be happier or improve their quality of life. They believe that if they could reduce their stress, fears, anxiety, pain and many other negative emotions or conditions they could be happier, they could find their ideal mate, get a better job, or attract greater success into their lives.

A quick internet search on Depression shows that the number of cases is growing at an alarming rate. It also shows that areas with higher rates of depression have high rates of other negative health outcomes, such as obesity, heart disease, and stroke. Individuals suffering from depression are more likely to be unemployed or recently divorced than their non-depressed counterparts, and women experience greater risk of depression than men.

Despite these facts, many people suffer symptoms of depression without seeking care, and that undiagnosed depression costs the U.S. millions of dollars each year. Now a global health issue, depression awareness, diagnosis, and treatment are matters of crucial significance in building a healthier, happier world.

Depression

What are some of the causes of depression?

A Google search lists a number of factors that may increase the chance of depression, including the following:

The healing of trauma

The healing of trauma is becoming more and more important – WHY?

  • Traditionally recognized reasons:
    • PTSD and symptoms including fear often develop
    • Long-term and chronic health issues – lowered HRV
    • Decreased quality of life – nightmares, anxiety, anger
    • Overall negative effect on society – cycle of violence
  • Additional reasons that may be relevant:
    • Dramatic rise in trauma around the world
    • NewTrauma of Life is PASSED DOWN in SPERM – affects our children and even our grandchildren (see below)

The TFT Foundation’s documentary, From Trauma to Peace, is in the end stages of post-production.  An early version will be premiered at the ACEP Conference in Arizona at the end of this month.  Attend and be the first to see this ground breaking work and hear from the many Rwandans whose lives have been transformed.  To view our new trailer, go to:  www.TFTFoundation.org.

The model it presents is a model for large scale trauma relief that can be implemented anywhere in the world.  If we hope to find peace in this world, it is becoming clearer every day that we must begin healing the trauma in our lives.  This latest study shows us the health of our future generations depend on this healing.

How the trauma of life is passed down in SPERM, affecting the mental health of future generations:

  • The changes are so strong they can even influence a man’s grandchildren
  • They make the offspring more prone to conditions like bipolar disorder

Tapping for Optimal Health

What is Optimal Health—Really?

“According to the World Health Organization, health is defined as: “A state of optimal well-being, not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.” Wellness practitioners believe that optimal well-being requires a balance between wellness dimensions that comprise the whole person.”

Joanne CallahanWhen we began to consider offering TFT Voice Technology in and to groups, we needed to come up with a name for the new course. Roger wanted something that clearly stated the benefit of what attendees would be receiving—and Optimal Health was that benefit.

During his long years of discovering and developing TFT, Roger used the dictionary frequently as he strove to define and name what he was observing. I remember when he found the definition for “perturbation” and his excitement at how it fit the concept he was wanting to define. We shared that same excitement for Optimal Health as we developed that course.

Eliminating Performance Anxiety

Jim McWhorter on Peak Performance Trading
(originally published March 31, 1991 – Club 3000 News)

performanceI would like to take time from trading to recommend a person who can show traders how to achieve peak performance in trading. I speak from personal experience that his techniques are easy to grasp and they work. His name is Roger J. Callahan, PhD. And he currently resides in Indian Wells, California.

In the mid 1980’s, Dr. Callahan authored the book “Five Minute Phobia Cure”. This book brought national attention to Dr. Callahan where he was able to demonstrate the effectiveness of his techniques by treating total strangers with severe anxieties and phobias on live syndicated talk shows. His most celebrated patient was Tom Snyder, who was cured of a severe fear of heights on his own talk show, the Tomorrow show. During this time, I was not aware of Dr. Callahan’s teachings and it would be 1990 before I would become interested in his work.
