While making affirmations I feel a strain in my mind. As though a wave is going from front to

top of the head.Should I carry on them or am I doing it wrong?

I wouldnt, not if its causing you pain.

I would read "Ask and it is given" or follow some of Stingrays links.

In the past ive used affirmations that rebelled against my mind.I was overstretching my faith and couldnt deep down accept them.

After using some of the Hicks methods im far more comfortable in myself,and far more confident in a positive outcome.

Its helped me a lot,it may help you to.

A lot of affirmations like to use the NOW perspective regardless of how ridiculous it is for our minds to accept.

Example: "I am now a millionaire!" Wow that feels so good to say and think but then after that moment of owwwww how exciting the thought, it disappears as not believed because I see no evidence.

But if I change this slightly to "I am now becoming a millionaire!" My brain again says WOW that is exciting this is so great I feel great. My mind has a harder time doubting this as there needs no evidence. Who knows what is in the future, this can not be disproved that I am now becoming a millionaire, I have money I keep getting more every time I am paid maybe I am becoming a millionaire! So the brain accepts this much more easily and thus keeps the faith that is acceptable and true.

In my experience, this strain is an indication of you communicating your affirmation. I mean like, it is happening, you are open and connected! So I wouldn't worry about it.

You're doing great! Keep it up! Lots of love, namaste

Deniele- i have found that iof an affirmation is not working or showing any sign of acceptance from our sonsciousness,then we should mold our sentence or words which could be accepted.

It appears that you are overwhelming your self, and it would be wise for you to slow down, and to be more patience with your self. Sometimes if you try to overload the brain it makes matters worst for you to focus, and to concentrate to get the desired result you want. So, be cautious, and take care of your brain!
