The best way to understand what we do is to hear it from some of our Veterans!
Master Sergeant Pat Baisden
My name is Master Sergeant Baisden and I am a Bronze Star Afghanistan Disabled Veteran and was placed on so many prescribed drugs by doctors that most of my days were spent walking around like a zombie. So I was looking for an alternate way of coping and very willing to try the holistic approach.
So when God placed Mrs. Toni Colley-Lee and Silver Lining Villages in my path to help me get out of pain without medications I was in like Flynn. My first session had me so relaxed that I thought that I was drugged and the funny part about it is that I did it to myself by using the tapping EFT method.
My anger aggression issues, depression issues, and PTSD symptoms and issue need more EFT healing and thus the need more attention for me to continue to heal. Supporting Silver Lining Villages will help millions of my Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans that will benefit from this holistic technique. I will be making many more appointments to deal with my issues and if you are a Veteran with TBI, PTSD, Anxiety, Anger Aggression issues and you need help simply email them!
Thank you for helping me.

I am the co-author of the certification coursebooks in EFT. I also am a professional with a full practice. Silver Lining Villages does not only have a top notch program process but also implements an excellent training process for volunteers and staff. This provides a safe and knowledgeable environment for all those needing assistance. I have worked with many many military personnel with EFT and the relief is instant. Our vets deserve this assistance. Silver Lining Villages with Toni at the helm will change many lives.

Captain Joseph Cheser – Veteran
My name is Captain Joseph Cheser. I am an active-duty AMEDD Army Officer. I served in Iraq in 2009-10 in a Combat Support Hospital. While I did not experience direct combat in this role, I came back with my own emotional baggage. Shortly after coming home, one of my children starting experiencing major emotional issues and was having a hard time with life. Traditional mental health approaches were not helping much and medication caused bad side effects and was very unpleasant. Desperate for something better, I discovered EFT and used EFT for both myself and my child. The results were fast and significant. Today my child is a happy adult and I have eliminated my “baggage” from my deployment. EFT works!

Letticia Ramsey – Former Army Reservist
I have been working with an EFT practitioner for about 18 months. My life has changed since I began using EFT on a daily basis. My energy was very low prior to EFT. I was in search of some deep healing around a very stressful traumatic experience that occurred in my life that left me feeling abandoned, broken and living in guilt and fear. Today, I am thriving and moving forward in life one step and a time. I am feeling lighter, balance and free.
As a former Army Reservist who worked with the Family Support Team, I worked with veterans who suffered from depression and PTSD. I truly believe EFT will be have a positive impact on our military veterans and their family members.
Lisa C. Anderson – EFT Practitioner
I have used and am trained in EFT and I’ve seen traumas go away very quickly. My father had PTSD from WW2 and I wish I’d found this before he passed away. I’ve seen the trauma from rape disappear in 30 minutes of tapping and other stuck energies and traumas and I believe our Veterans that experience this technique will heal very quickly. I think this is crucially important work.
Sonia E. Simon – Veteran
As a combat veteran, disabled veteran and homeless veteran at one point in my life I have tried so many different types of medication, therapy, therapist, psychologists, psychiatrists that finally I gave up. When a fellow veteran and former roommate and her children were found dead in her apartment due to a suicide/murder, at their memorial service I found (well I should say she found me) the help that I had been seeking to start addressing depressions, PTSD, anxiety etc. This woman practiced EFT. She called me and has been meeting with me since February and helping me to take a holistic approach to healing. EFT helps to deal with the root cause of pain and takes you back to the moment happenstance to address the trauma caused during that experience.
She helped me to alleviate the trauma I faced when my camp was hit with incoming when stationed in Iraq and many other things. I do hope that this service is made available to other veterans to help them overcome the trauma they are facing on a day to day basis.
Thank you Silver Lining for all you have done.
Master Sergeant Gladys Kelly – Veteran
Absolutely love the EFT technique and was introduced to it by Silver Linings Villages!! I feel that it saved my life! Not an exaggeration either. Living, acknowledging and coping with PTSD is life changing by it’s own right. Thanks to Toni Colley and Silver Linings Villages, I am on my way, wanting to get better, be better and tell other veterans!

Russ Douglas – Veteran
Being a veteran I know how difficult it can be to get quality help needed to deal with issues from service and every day life. Veterans in need face a daily challenge when it comes to obtaining proper care. Unfortunately the VA is overwhelmed and mismanaged, hurting veterans chances in recovery. As a small business owner I also understand how difficult it is to build and maintain something successful. We need to do a much better job at identifying ideas and organizations like Silver Lining Villages that are dedicated to helping veterans. I think Silver Lining Villages has a very unique and effective plan on getting veterans the help they need.
Baye Sebahive – Veteran
As a Vietnam era Navy Veteran, I have used EFT under the tutelage of Silver Lining Villages’ Practitioners, and found it to be very useful for stress reduction and pain reduction for physical ailments. When I started, I had some vague, and not so vague physical issues from years of working hard as a Master Plumber. My exact words in that first session were “There is not a bone or muscle in my body that doesn’t ache!” But four months later, I was sitting in a restaurant talking about life with a friend, and the work I’d done with EFT when I realized that I did not have one pain in my body! Not one of the nagging issues I had dealt with from crawling under houses and in all kinds of spaces. They were simply gone!
Gerald E. Boyd MDiv., CADC, ICADC, CAMS Founder/Executive Director – Eastern Shore Training and Consulting, Inc. (ESTACI)
For more than a year Toni Colley-Lee co-lead a substance use disorder counseling group with me as an intern. Toni put forward the theory that “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system” I found that to be a valid discovery statement and thus incorporated it in each of the sessions we facilitated with Toni taking the lead in facilitating EFT practices to both my and the client’s complete satisfaction.
I am convinced that when EFT is practiced persistently and aimed at specific emotional events all aspect of problems experienced by an individual will be removed.
