What do I do if my log in at says "too many authentication attempts failed"?

I was migrating my Minecraft account over to the Mojang website as instructed. I was at the last step (which was choosing the security questions) and once I was done with that I entered my Minecraft password in and it didn't accept. I then figured out I had to authorize it through my e-mail and so I did. Once I went back to put in my password, it said "too many authentication attempts failed". I was just wondering if there was anybody else who was dealing with the same problem or who knows how to fix this, because now I can't log in to play Minecraft at all. Any info about the situation would be great!

    Just wait 24 hours. The site probably blacklisted you IP like a bruteforcer. You may also wana try cleaning some of your cache or just logging in the client itself.

    you will need to use the contact us button on the website, the system must have logged your error as an attempt to login so locked the account.
