For many years I have used and taught EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) as as a way of self-healing. EFT is quick and usually works immediately, it is so simple that children can use it. This verse was written to help children remember where to tap using the basic version of EFT. The ‘tapping’ part of the verse is repetitive to help children remember easier.

by Trina Graves

“Tapping”

Whenever I am feeling sad
Or something has made me mad
I know what I can easily do
To feel better all day through

While thinking of what’s bad
I tap and soon I will feel glad
Within a minute or two
It’s what I like to do
Tapping around my eyes I go
With my fingers, not too slow
Above, beside and below
It’s easy when you know
Next is above my lips
Then below where my chin dips
On to the bottom of my neck 
I’ll be finished in a sec
Under my arm is last
This tapping’s really fast

Even if I feel unwell
I don’t need to dwell
Upon the way I feel
‘Cos I know how to heal

While thinking of what’s bad
I tap and soon I will feel glad
Within a minute or two
It’s what I like to do
Tapping around my eyes I go
With my fingers, not too slow
Above, beside and below
It’s easy when you know
Next is above my lips
Then below where my chin dips
On to the bottom of my neck 
I’ll be finished in a sec
Under my arm is last
This tapping’s really fast

If I hurt myself one day
I know just what to do and say
To help me feel better fast
Bumps and bruises don’t have to last

While thinking of what’s bad
I tap and soon I will feel glad
Within a minute or two
It’s what I like to do
Tapping around my eyes I go
With my fingers, not too slow
Above, beside and below
It’s easy when you know
Next is above my lips
Then below where my chin dips
On to the bottom of my neck 
I’ll be finished in a sec
Under my arm is last
This tapping’s really fast

    Thanks for sharing Amira ❤
    Have you ever tried EFT? It is truly amazing, I have had astonishing results with different people over the years, covering topics such as phobia's of needles & dogs, easing heartbreak, increasing self-confidence and many more. What I love most about it is that it is a SELF healing tool and works so fast in comparison to other healing techniques.

    1. Hi Trina! Yes, I have tried it with success as well, it’s based on acupuncture points, and tapping is just another way of stimulating those points instead of using needles, or moxibustion (Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called “moxa” are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body) or electrical current. However, I must admit that I needed your reminder to re-visit this method again! 🙂 So Thank you for writing this poem and for bringing this back to my attention!!!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

        I didn’t know about moxibustion, so thank you telling me about that. I too have been reminded by your sharing of this poem to use EFT again. From 2002 until a few years ago I was using it often (for myself and others) but have let it slip, so I will take this as a nudge to get back to it!
        Bless you. ❤

    1. I am so glad to hear this dear Linda! Yes, we accumulate emotions in our bodies that cause blockages in our natural energy flow. This technique uses the ancient acupuncture points to stimulate those points and help release those blockages. I am also “re-learning” and “re-membering” things I had not used any more 🙂 For this I have to thank all the friends that help us to remember…<3
