Where does addiction come from? How can Quantum Healing access the subconscious beliefs, traumas and unresolved grief that motivate us to numb our pain. The addicted person has to be emotionally ready to heal the original pain and then they will be more empowered to stop the sabotaging behaviour. If you are not emotionally ready, make a promise to yourself, and to others, that when the time is right, you will engage in a healing process.
