The beauty of Quantum-Touch is that these techniques can benefit all areas of your life. It's not just for physical healing, but for bringing more joy into our lives. In this way, I believe these techniques are basic skills we can all benefit from.
I recently used the energy techniques for a family outing. Now, this wasn’t just any outing. This was house hunting: 2 hours from home, 7 houses to see across a few townships, and due to our circumstances, my husband and I were bringing along our 3 kids (ages 7, 4, and 2)! To add to this situation, we needed to be back for a neighbor’s birthday party at 4:00 p.m. The birthday girl was a friend of our kids, and they did not want to miss it.
Overwhelmed at the task ahead of us, I began to run the energy. I sent intentions that this would be the beginning of an adventure for our family. That the kids would be excited to see new places and they would be in good spirits with the drive and busyness the day would bring. I intended that we would arrive at each house viewing punctually, and my husband and I would have the time we needed to properly assess each house to see if it would be a good fit for us.
I continued to run the energy - bringing in feelings of gratitude that this was working even better than expected. I smiled, knowing that this was going to be a fun day.
As I prepared for the upcoming day, I got the idea that a sure way to keep the kids happy would be to have plenty of snacks, so they would be satiated! When I did my weekly grocery shopping, I picked up extra snacks that would be new to them, and food to bring as a picnic lunch.
I decided to wrap the snacks up with the plan of giving it them as a gift after each viewing. So that when it would be time to hit the road again between viewings, the kids would run and get into their seats excitedly as they waited for their surprise snack gifts!
The day approached and even my realtor thought we were a bit crazy. She had told a colleague and they bet that we wouldn’t make it to all the houses in our time frame. My husband and I got up early, ate breakfast and then made breakfast sandwiches we could give to the kids once we hit the road. At 6:45 a.m., we woke the kids up, and by 7:00 a.m., we were on our way for the first viewing.
After a 2 hour drive, we arrived and viewed the first home. It was a lovely house that fit our criteria with a nice backyard. And then time for the next viewing. The kids rushed to their seats in the van for the first mystery snack! This continued and the kids were loving the thrill of unwrapping mystery snacks, and viewing different houses.
At house number 4, our realtor surprised us, saying she had a gift for each kid! She had hid them in the house so kids would have to find them. This was so much fun - now the kids got to hunt for their gifts. Once they found them, they played with the small toys and stickers until we were ready to leave.
After house number 5, we had a longer break as we were right on time! We found a nearby park for the kids to play at while eating our picnic lunch. Honestly, the kids weren’t even that hungry from all the snacks they had been eating.
Two house to go! At house number 6, the realtor surprised the kids with fresh cut French fries. Then making it to the last house, we all sighed a big sigh of relief that we were able to see all 7 homes that spanned just over 60km of driving in under 5 hours!
We started on our way home, arriving 15 minutes before the birthday party was to begin. Our oldest grabbed his bike to head to the party, and we told him we’d meet him there after settling in at home.
The day turned out to be a fun adventure, and the kids still talk about the mystery snacks and all the fun spaces we saw along the day. We didn’t find our home on that trip, but we got a really good sense of the area we would be moving too. As for the house we will buy, I will continue to run energy into the happiness it will bring our family.
