Low Energy

Not having much energy is a common problem for most of us.  Below is a tapping exercise that may help to improve the situation. When I first used this one, lots of other issues popped up that needed tapping as well.  You may want to have your tapping journal handy to jot down some notes.

If you are new to tapping, check out the Tapping Points video on the Meridian Tapping page before moving on.

Rate this statement on a 0-10 scale where 0=not true at all and 10=completely true, “I have low energy.”  Write down the number.

Say these statements while tapping on the karate chop point: I don’t seem to have much energy lately. It is hard to get going and even harder to keep going.  I just don’t seem to have the stamina I used to have and I want it back.  Even though I’m lacking energy I love and accept myself completely. Even though I have no stamina, I am open to loving myuself anyway.  Even though I have much less energy than what I think I need, I choose to accept myself just as I am.

Eyebrow…No energy

Side of Eye…Low energy

Under the Eye…Lack of energy

Nose…No stamina

Chin…Not enough to get going

Collarbone…Not enough to keep going either

Under the Arm…No energy

Top of Head…Need more energy

Eyebrow…No stamina

Side of Eye…I want more stamina

Under the Eye…I really miss having energy and stamina

Nose…It is bothering me

Chin…I am committed to improving my energy

Collarbone…I am open to raising my energy level

Under the Arm…I am eager to understand my current energy

Top of Head…I accept myself with or without energy and stamina


Take a deep breath and release it gently.  Now say the statement again “I have low energy.”  Rate it on the 0-10 scale.  Has there been a change?  Did any other thoughts come up?  If the rating number is lower, you can tap on those new thoughts or continue tapping with statements similar to the ones above.

Book Review – Energy Tapping: How to Rapidly Eliminate Anxiety, Depression, Cravings, and More Using Energy Psychology

Energy Tapping by Fred Gallo and Harry Vincenzi was one of the first books on Energy Psychology (EP) that I  read and I’m delighted to have read it again after more than a decade of doing EP with others.  In addition to being a great introductory text for EP work and tapping, this book has features that set it apart from many other books in the genre including a chapter about energy toxins, a great description of beliefs and their impact on feelings and behavior, and perhaps the best chapter anywhere on Psychological Reversal and Self Sabotage.

Beyond the basics of how to do tapping, the authors provide easy to follow instruction and numerous case examples so that the reader can feel confident in addressing a variety of emotions and situations.  The page formatting and easy to understand graphics add to the experience and the ease of use.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in improving their life circumstance.  Whether you are a seasoned health care provider or new to energy work, this book has much to offer.
