As with most phobias, the fear of public speaking tends to develop in response to past experiences, either due to a single traumatic event or through gradual conditioning/association. The fear is then compounded by both negative emotions attached to memories of the past and anticipation/expectation of future poor performance, failure and/or ridicule...
Editor's Note from Natalie Jovanic: Worthiness does not have any prerequisites. However, our thoughts might tell us "you are not good enough" or "you aren't worthy." You may doubt your worthiness because you have experienced trauma and abuse. This guided meditation helps you to connect with your worthiness. Always remember, you are worthy as you are right now, no matter what.

Here is the obvious. If you use EFT yourself or with others, you are using the process of memory. If you are seriously doing EFT with others, if you have not yet, then you will run into trauma...
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Memory - why is it that you might forget where you left your keys yet a traumatic memory from years past keeps rearing its ugly head? If you have practiced Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) on yourself or employ it as a modality in your health practice, you have probably encountered traumatic memories.
Dr. Craig Weiner helps you understand how trauma alters memories in a simple, concise explanation of the neuroscience behind memory. Knowing how trauma is stored explains how random, seemingly unrelated memories arise during a tapping session. As well, Dr. Weiner explains why the emotional flood gate might open when recalling a past trauma.

For many people grief is an option. Looking at my own life, I realized it is a matter of life and death. In fact, throughout my life, grief has been an important theme from crying for food as a child to dealing with deep pain of losses as I grow older...

Editor's Note from Carolyn White: In November 2013, Hurricane Yolanda, one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded, devastated the Philippines. Yolanda wrecked havoc over the area, causing over 6,000 fatalities and leaving 7.9 million people homeless. In the wake of the magnitude of this destruction, many survivors suffered from debilitating trauma. A group of volunteers went to the Filipino community of Tacloban with the mission to empower these survivors through Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) tapping. From very young to old, the Filipinos learned how to overcome their trauma via EFT. Tom Wood Fin was instrumental in documenting this project and getting the video online. The volunteers included Steve Wells, Tania Prince, Rehana Webster, Dr. David Lake,Sue Beer, Emma Roberts and Gene David Monterastelli. This core group founded Empowering the Philippines, which is dedicated to to bring emotional and safety empowerment to over 10,000 Filipinos after Super Typhoon Yolanda. This humanitarian relief effort shows EFT tapping at its best.
Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: Children at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital, St.Vincent, receive art therapy to help them deal with anxiety, an adverse diagnosis, pain and the possibility of a lifelong illness. Doing art helps them gain a sense of control, of comfort, of being able to play in sometimes traumatic circumstances. The art therapy program can also leave the parents with much-loved mementos created by their children.

Conventional science has believed that our genetic inheritance is set in stone – that our DNA is what solely determines our health, personality traits and intelligence. Like a roll of the dice, you get what you came in with, and that’s it. Many people still believe this today. But, discoveries have been made that confound previous research; a simple change in environment can turn your genes on or off...
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation has been scientifically proven to alter genetic structure. So, as Marlise showcases it here... we each have the ability to change the "predisposed" and seemingly uncontrollable aspects of our lives based on our energy and thoughts. Read the studies on trauma, for example, and how it can affect the genetic makeup through generations. Powerful stuff.
