Recently I was asked to teach EFT to ninety 11 year olds.

They had come for a week`s stay at the Bridgetown Rural Camp School. (250 klm south of Perth in Western Australia)

Seeking a quick/catchy heading for the Camp Newsletter that would go to a prospective school we called it 'Dealing with Feelings'.

I have been practicing EFT for three years and one of my passions has always been to work with children and empower them through EFT and here, finally, was my chance.

We divided them up into groups of approx 20 but I can tell you even 20 11year olds - if you`re not used to them - can make quite a lot of noise and for a minute I wondered what in heaven I'd got myself into.  But I'd done plenty of pre-tapping and I was quite relaxed and positive.

As the session progressed I noticed they were starting to pay more attention and by the time I hit the last 20 minutes and called for volunteers to be tapped on I was confronted by a sea of hands.

I picked the Class Clown (there's always one) who had been most unflattering in his whispered comments.  Out he came.  Did he had a problem/feeling he'd like to work on.  He stood there suddenly looking downcast.  "My gran died last week, I lived with her more than my Mum, I`m really sad, I`m missing her real bad." 

So, away we went.  We tapped on pain, on missing her, on his feeling of loss, on the fear of him maybe now being alone .... this one hit the mark.  It was incredible to see the change in him.  His body language completely changed, his shoulders went back and his skin tone which had been pale, flushed pink.  His eyes which had appeared almost lifeless, sparkled.

It was so dramatic even the children noticed it.

One little boy had asked me earlier if EFT was good for headaches ... I gave him the reply that it was brilliant but that if he was having lots of headaches he must tell his Mother becaus e..... He replied that this one was caused because the boys in his dorm had talked all night and he couldn`t get enough sleep.  So he was next out.

We did one round and the headache was gone.  He just stood there almost non-believing and then shaking his head resumed his seat.   After the session he came up to me and said.  "Miss, you are Amazing!!  EFT is Amazing!!! you know what I think YOU should do?  I think you should rent a shop downtown and charge everyone who comes to see you for EFT a thousand dollars because that is what EFT is worth!!"   THAT comment, to me, WAS worth a thousand dollars.
