I'd like to know, what's the best affirmation I can make to get rid of my chronic headaches? They are very incapacitating and I have them daily. When I do, I cannot work properly, nor read, nor watch tv, nor listen to music, nor anything. Can you please help me?

Louise Hay has a wonderful book called "Meditations to Heal Your Life".The mental patterns of thinking we are not good enough, or the need to make ourselves wrong, are what usually contribute to recurring headaches so the key is to turn this negative inner dialogue into a positive,loving dialogue.
Two of the affirmations she recommends for headaches are - "I am wonderful just as I am at this very moment" and "I approve of what I see in myself".
Instead of self criticism, the affirmations will nurture thoughts of self approval. Good luck:-)

Everybody that knows me well tells me I am too self-demanding. I believe so too. That's why I think it must work. :)

All of us have unresolved issues in our lives. What it means that we are more often than not allowed by society to express our true feelings about certain things. We fake our smiles and pretend that things don't bother us. The feelings that are not expressed freely become suppressed feelings and suppressed feelings reside physically in our body and they can manifest in many different ways. The most common way for them to manifest are physical dis-eases. Here is a piece of information from another book on how you can identify why you feel pain in some parts of your body and what suppressed emotions stand behind them.
Specific body parts: The head signals thoughts and ideals - the way we think life ought to be.
The face has to do with what we are presenting to the world. If our presentation is different from what is actually happening inside, our two “faces” are in conflict. As a result, acne may develop.
If we have negative thoughts, resentment, and feelings of being inadequate, mucous will develop in the sinuses. Phlegm, the fluid in the throat, is also an indication of negative emotions.
Headaches often constitute repression of memories. They can also signify a conflict between the left and right brains. For example, our right brain knows that we are all-powerful beings— that every one of us is a consciousness superimposed over All That Is. If the left brain opposes it, we develop a headache.
Ear problems can mean there are things in our environment that we don’t wish to hear: abusive language from a spouse; nagging from a mother; or disrespect from a child. When we protect our boundaries, yet realize that we cannot control the behavior of others, this heals. It is also helpful to see the abuse as their reflection, not ours, so that we don’t take it personally.
The thyroid is where we suppress anger at not being heard. If there are pieces of our reality that don’t fit, and we try to ignore them, it effects the thyroid.
Teeth and their roots are connected to bones, therefore, they indicate conflicts with parental figures or societal attitudes. Teeth have to do with how palatable parental teachings were. If we cannot accept a life situation, our teeth may become hypersensitive. Teeth also pertain to the need for aggression.
Problems with gums indicate something we cannot swallow in life. It is stuck and bothering us, so it becomes an abscess in the mouth.
The neck is where thoughts and ideals meet - reflecting the way life is for us. Light workers often have neck problems because the way they would like life to be and the way life appears, is at variance. That conflict meets in the neck.
A lot of people have atlas problems, meaning the head isn’t on straight. This indicates a dramatic conflict between ideal and reality and an inability to embrace the folly of mankind. If we can start to see the perfection underlying all things, by looking at the larger picture, this conflict goes away.
The shoulders, arms and hands reflect that which is done to us or that which we are doing to another. The hands indicate the present moment. Arms mean it may be less obvious or more under the surface. Shoulders indicate that we have been trying to push it into the past. If our feelings were hurt today, it manifests in the fingers.
If we are still hurting over something that happened last week, it will possibly manifest in the arm, up toward the elbow. If there are issues from our childhood or from past relationships that we suppress, we find that in the shoulders or back.
Specific areas of the hands indicate different things. The top joint or section of the fingers has to do with ideals and the mental. The middle joint has to do with emotional issues. The lower joint has to do with the physical body.
For example, when someone is hostile towards our spiritual beliefs and makes fun of a sacred object or a spiritual book we hold dear, we may develop a problem with the top joint of the finger. If someone makes fun of our intellect or our ability to solve problems, it also manifests in the top joint. One young woman who had developed a huge tumor in the brain came to me. Her husband’s favorite nickname for her was “brain dead.” That was an insult to the mental and she continually injured the top joints of her fingers.
The area below the shoulders down to the hips has to do with our desires and passion and our self-expression of the things we love to do.
Liver problems indicate anger. Kidney problems indicate fear. Sacrum problems indicate that we feel unsupported.
The hip area is where we balance between how we desire to live and how we are actually living. For example, a man wants to be an artist but his parents forced him to become a lawyer. Therefore, he develops problems in the hips.
The pubis bone can lock in the front. There is a cartilage joint that should move, and if it doesn’t, it throws the back out of alignment. It locks when our sexuality is being drained. For example, when a young boy is expected to be the man in the family, he may start to shield his masculinity because he feels his energy being drained. If a woman is abused sexually, the pubis will lock.
Sexual organs relate to our ability to be active in reproduction.
Legs reflect how we are moving forward through life. The man who becomes a lawyer instead of an artist may also be prone to hurting his legs. Since his artistic talent is part of his feminine side, and the masculine is crowding it out, it will likely manifest in his left leg.
Knees reflect our flexibility towards what is happening to us. For example, a woman may have a sore right knee when she is being inflexible with her husband.
Problems with the feet indicate how we are moving through life in the present moment. For example, a man has many wonderful ideas at his job but his boss won’t give him the freedom to follow those ideas, so his masculine side becomes stuck. He may have a car accident and jam the bones of his masculine foot, because his life is jammed from moving forward at this time. (excerpt from 'Life of Miracles' by Almine)
PS. I know I posted this reply some time ago where it was "edited", but finding it seems like sooo much hustle ..

Thank you very much for your reply, very informative! But still I'd like to know (since you're not to ask in the negative, as: "I don't want more headaches", what's the best affirmation I can make?
(05 May '10, 14:08) BridgetJones09
Ok, so when the headaches come up.. DON'T TRY TO GET RID OF THEM! Those are your emotions or belief systems that are out of alignment with who you truly are, your Higher Self. The headaches are a way that your body is beckoning you "Hey, look here, you've GOT to look at this". Once you look at something you can change it. You can not change something you do not own. And the headaches, if you want to believe me or not, ARE YOURS! You have created them at one point or another in your life for a reason, now it's time to find out what that reason is. So, once you have a headache, don't feel ..
(05 May '10, 14:52) wildlife
frustrated. Instead, feel excited because now you are finally ready to look at YOURSELF, because that's what this is all about. Once you look at it it will go away. Will it be pleasant at first? Of course not. Why? Because you have been running away from it for all this time. Why have you been running away from it? I don't know, but I know someone who knows. You know who that is? You. You know what these feelings are that you don't want to acknowledge and make yours. So, when you feel the headache, just relax and ask "What can I learn about myself from this" and breath, breath, breath, breath.
(05 May '10, 14:55) wildlife
Let all those emotions that you haven't allowed yourself surface and DON'T judge yourself for having them. EVERYONE has got them and if they say they don't is either because they are to ignorant to know this or they are lying to you to use you. Either way that's what it is and siting with those feelings, letting them surface and NOT judge them as "bad" will help get rid of them. Will it happen the first time you do it? Maybe not, but it will be a start and the more you do it the more you release and the faster you will be free from them. Affirmation? "God, give me strength to face myself".

Here are my 2 cents worth. This is a technique that usually works for me when I get physical problems which either occur for no reason or if they persist despite any medication etc. I usually close my eyes and ask my sub-conscious if this is a signal and it is trying to communicate with me. I ask my sub-conscious that if this is a signal can it please de-intensify the pain so that I can be sure it is a signal (if it is a pleasant or bearable signal such as a certain sensation or a twicth etc I ask it to intensify it, but best to de-intensify discomfort or pain). If it is established that it is a signal (there is a subsiding of the pain) then I ask my sub-conscious to let me know what it is trying to tell me through my conscious mind and please make change this signal into something more bearble or pleasant. Usually I get a thought or a sudden insight later on.
A painful signal usually means that our sub-conscious has been trying to contact us for a long time but we have'nt paid attention so now it has resorted to signals which are impossible to ignore.
Talk to your sub-conscious as if you are trying to build a relationship of trust with someone. Remember it is yourself you are talking to and if you are not sincere you would know. Promise your sub-conscious that whenever it wants to communicate with you you will listen and act upon it.
Be patient don't try to rush it - if you have ignored it for a long time then chances are it will test you for a while. But I promise that once this contact is established it will be like having your best friend with you at all times who always guides you correctly.
Hope this helps.

Very interesting! I'll try this too... Anything that helps me with my headaches :P
(06 May '10, 15:25) BridgetJones09
Let me know if it works, whether this method does or something else I hope you find relief soon.
(06 May '10, 19:07) I Think Therefore I Am
Dear Bridget, You have many varied answers here but here is something that could be causing your headaches and doctors seem to miss this most of the time. I shall give you my own example.
I started noticing that every time I ate white grapes I woul develop a bad migraine headache afterwards and it would last for 24 hours and ocasionaly 36 hours. I started doing reaserch and discovered that for different people it would be different foods. For most it would be cheese or chocolate. Take note next time you get a headache what did you have to eat beforehand. Could you have intolorances that are the cause of your headaches. Maybe you can test yourself by leaving certain foodstufs out of your daily diet and see if there is a differance. You can have intolorance testing done for it is a quickest way to find out.
Another thing that can cause headaches is hormonal imbalance. The tests will show everything is fine but this mostly happens to menopausal woman. Middle aged men whose testosterone is low can also have migraine headaches. If you are too young to be on menaupause than dont worry about it and if you are of an age where hormones could be a problem seek medical or alternative hormonal suplementation.
Another cause of headaches is to do with the weather and preassure. Some get headaches when the atmpspheric preasure drops and others get headaches when the preasure lifts.
Hope this helps some.

Nice answer. One should observe oneself and see when he does have headaches and when he does not. I know it seems like a big task to someone who's never done this before - but a notepad and pen is your friend. When headache appear, note done everything what happened to that moment. Because cause for headache are too many. It might be just one, or combination of many. I usually get headache if I don't drink enough water or from not fresh air. Drinking more in my case, fixes the problem...

Shakespeare said in Hamlet "There is special providence in the fall of a sparrow." - In other words, there is always a reason, even if unknown to us for things to happen. Nothing happens without reason.

This works for me and I hope it can work for you. I am very seldom ever sick, not even with a common cold. The reason for this is no accident. I am very conscious of my thoughts and of my emotions. I do not allow emotions to go unresolved or negative thoughts to linger. However sometimes I get busy with life and things slip through into my subconscious and I start to feel stressed. As soon as I feel that way I know that I can identify something going on in my life that is contributing to the problem. As soon as I identify the problem and deal with it, I am ok. I usually do this very quickly.
As someone mentioned before, the Universe has a way of signaling to us that we are on the wrong track and usually we ignore the signals until something really serious occur. If we respond to signals immediately then we reduce the chances of it developing into anything big.
Coming back to your problem, I do agree that you should see a Doctor and get medication as an immediate response. Then take the time to do some soul searching and be honest with what is going on in your life and make some decisions to change the things that you can. You can move at your own pace and within your own comfort zone. I hope you feel better soon.

A simple remedy for a headache is to lie down with a hot rag over your head. As soon as the rag cools, keep dipping it in hot water so it remains hot.
(06 May '10, 23:25) Drham
I have seen Drs. That's the reason I am so frustrated. There's nothing wrong with me bodily speaking... And thanks for the tip :) Where I live we use cold water. I didn't know about hot! I'll try it!

Here is an affirmation. I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.
answered 07 May '10, 14:15
Thank you! It must work. I've started thinking, since it's not a body problem, that my self-esteem is a bit battered :p

I have been in situations at work where I stayed in my comfort zone for months and headaches, lack of energy and motivation. Then I stepped out of the box and asked for a meeting with my boss to go over my goals. It was the hardest thing to dial the phone to set the meeting. He was very receptive and within a month I was promoted also. After I made the call, no more headaches.

Another method propagated as a remidy for Headaches is to close the right nostril and breath through the left nostril. Do it for ten minutes continuously. The problem should disappear.

Thank you, Gill!! I'll do it! :)

Say outloud, "I am whole and perfect and free of pain." Then do Two Hand Touching, put the palms of your hands together and and close your eyes. Quietly in you head ask yourself, "What do my hands feel like?" Without trying to name the feelings, feel the answer in your hands. Don't try to think or not think, just feel your hands.
Or just do the THT until the headache goes away. That's what I do first for headaches, stomach aches, etc...
It would be good to do THT every morning with or without affirmations, and throughout the day, to prevent the stress buildup that is causing the headaches. THT with the Deletion system really clears some crud. You can also use it with affirmations for wonderful effects.

Try alternating cold packs and heat packs. The cold packs that altheltes use with the gel inside work great. I keep several in the freezer at all times so that they are ready. I use a thin shirt or similar and place the ice pack in it and then on the main source of pain in the head. Try to lay down or relax when applying. Go to sleep if possible.
Heat packs can also help. Sometimes I alternate between the cold and hot. Basically anything to change what is happening in the head to cause the pain. Splash hot and cold water on your face.
Massage areas around the head and neck and concentrate on the areas that hurt.
Good luck and take care.

The most powerful affirmation - despite the horrible pain I know you must be feeling - is that you do not have chronic headaches but unsettled, troubled energy that has settled into your mind/brain and which is physically disturbing the brain's soft tissue. Follow by all means the safe and worthwhile treatments and advice your doctor has given you. But a way in which you can help yourself could be to ask if there's anything from your past or present that is troubling you. Our thoughts and memories are perhaps one of the most precious resources we have, yet they can also be the 'phantoms' that haunt our days and dreams. Is there anything or anyone that hurt you and which emotionally and mentally is still hurting you? Is there a scenario that is causing you to 'hit your head against a brick wall'? If so, stop hitting and stop hurting (smiles). If someone or something did hurt you, identify it. Name it and when you do it, you will have the power to stop it in its tracks. You see, when you name it, you'll shame it and when you shame it, you'll weaken it and once it's weakened, you will become stronger and better placed to remove it from your mind and rid your physical brain/skull of these horrible head pains. So, if it's helpful, here's something you can try:
This exercise is designed to help rid you of any memories that may be hurting you. Please let me know how you get on (smiles)

Have you consulted a physician yet? Headaches can be symptoms of a physical problem.
I had. There's nothing wrong, bodily speaking. I had a blod test done and an EEG. Got the best results.
