As I try and increase my vibrations to a higher scale on various issues in my life, I find that there is a constant battle inside me to replace doubts and negativity with positive feelings. I am not fighting doubt per se but as soon as I feel low I replace it with positive affirmations and revisiting best feelings from my Foucs Blocks. The problem is that everytime I do this I start feeling a dull throbbing around my temples. Am I doing something wrong? Any tips on how to prevent this?

I wouldn't say you are doing anything wrong.

Molding your beliefs is the same as resculpting the world around may seem like all you are doing is writing some words down on paper, or typing onto a computer screen...BUT...

Never forget that this is powerful stuff - you are literally reworking the fabric of your physical reality!

As you acclimatize to a new belief, it can disorient you for a while - especially if you are making rapid progress. A headache is just an indication that you are not quite up to speed yet but it's nothing to be concerned about.

Your headaches will disappear in time as you become used to a new level of vibration regarding the subject you are working on. If you experience any discomfort (like headaches), just take a break and come back later. It's nothing to worry about.

Sometimes, if I am shifting a belief that has been with me for a long time, I will yawn, feel tired and sometimes even dizzy. For lesser beliefs, I will often experience a bit of a cold shiver or tingling sensation up and down my body. Often, after a major belief-molding session, I will need to lie down and have a nap.

As I said, it's nothing going wrong - it's just you getting used to a new reality :)

I don't think you are doing anything wrong. I think the dull headache is actually an indication that you are doing something right.

Often when we begin this kind of internal work and begin changing ingrained, conditioned beliefs that have been with us for a while, our old way of thinking won't always be willing to let go easily and will show us this in the form of an ache or blockage in our physical body.

This can often be a good thing because it means the thought or feeling is ready to be released and the key is to just try and watch it and let whatever happens be okay without adding negative thinking to it. It is just an old way of being struggling for survival ( a bit like a child throwing a temper tantrum when they don't get their own way), when we don't give into the tantrum, it subsides pretty quickly.

Michaela, you remind me of Elizabeth Gilbert from "Eat , Love, Pray" . Your insights are always helpful and always reassure me. Thank you so much.
