"This question still puzzles me: Why does instantaneous healing happen in some cases, and not in others?"
This allows the person receiving the flow of energy to shift and heal at the exact right time and in the exact right way for their unique situation.
The cause of one's challenge is quite often never brought to conscious awareness during a Quantum Touch Healing Session; but as we allow the flow of healing energy to be directed in a powerful way, energy blocks can either be easily and instantaneously released, or, slowly over time.
Since we are working with subatomic particles in the Quantum Field, we do not always visually or kinesthetically notice when an energy or tissue has shifted into a greater state of well being on any or all levels -- physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
Over time, I've noticed that if it is supportive for a person to become consciously aware of the source of any challenge, that this will eventually come to light, as they are ready, willing and able to do so.
If there seems to be no apparent, energetic connection, movement or sensation whatsoever, I will bring it to the person's awareness during their Quantum Touch Healing Session.
Quite often, this is all that is necessary for someone to notice that some part of themselves was stopping them from receiving the flow.
This will generally support them in allowing themselves to receive.
Most people, especially someone coming to receive healing energy, greatly desire to feel better and experience healing, and so flowing a tremendous amount of life force energy, while at the same time sending with patience and releasing attachment to outcome, almost always brings wonderful results.
If not, then maybe the timing is not quite right, and the reason is not always important.
Sometimes relief can even be experienced several hours, days, or even months later.
As a Quantum Touch Practitioner, I am holding that bright light of healing energy and vision of seeing you already sound, whole and complete, and then let your body intelligence do the rest.
In any and all cases or situations, all is well!
Sending Lots of Love & Light!
