Affirmative Prayer (5 Step Process)

“Affirmative prayer” is a five-step-process and I will here describe the short version of it.

Step 1:

  • Recognition that God IS.

What is it that you are praying for?

This has to be positively written, because God IS only positive things.

For example you could write:


Anything that you desire in your life right now, write it down and acknowledge that God is those things.

So if you are depressed for example; what it is that you want to experience and feel instead of depression?

If you are broke, what would you want to experience instead of that?

If you worry and feel fear, the what is the opposite of that?

Step 2:

  • Unification.

Because we are made in the likeness of God; that mean that what we just described God to be, we must be too.

Recognize that Oneness you have with God. You ARE that what God IS.

Recognize it, despite what your physical eyes are telling you. Everything is created twice; first in mind then in form.

Step 3:

  • Realization.

Set the intention to be the outlet and channel for that which you are praying for.

Describe the fulfillment of the desire, how does it feel now that you are FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT, have PERFECT HEALTH, INNER PEACE or whatever you wrote in step 1?

Write it down, describe it in the first person and in present tense:
“I AM PEACEFUL, FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT.. etc and it feels: wonderful, free, content..” etc.

Step 4:

  • Thanksgiving.

Know that the prayer has now been heard AND answered, and feel the gratitude of that knowledge.

Bask in it and know that your needs are met NOW. Feel gratitude for all that you asked for, because it is already yours.

Know that the positive change is now happening in your life.

Step 5:

  • Release.

Release it to God, let go and let God take care of it.
It is done unto you in a perfect way and you just surrender everything to God.

A transformation is taking place NOW.

Be aware of any nudges, hunches etc and act on them when inspiration strikes!

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless. Maria is beyond amazing. Had I not experienced it myself, I would probably not believe it. I recommend anyone who is trying hard to be truly free and really start walking down the path of self fulfillment and happiness to book a session with her.

I’m overflowing with gratitude and joy! Life has changed dramatically for me after our time together. I have truly realized on a fundamental level what is creating my reality and it has given me confidence for the first time in my life to finally be ME, I feel liberated to be my authentic self!

The whole session felt as if it was operating on another level

If you can trust one thing in your life right now, trust Maria. You can trust her with your heart and soul. It’s hard to explain, the whole session felt as if it was operating on another level. I’ve never had that kind of experience before. It just felt so much bigger than I anticipated. I can tell you with absolute honesty and conviction that having a session with Maria is life-changing!

I’ve never had a conversation like that before

I just wanted to say thank you so much again for our session yesterday, I’ve never had a conversation like that before and it was truly amazing. I could feel weight lifted as we were talking and for the first time my mind did not try to make sense of things, it was all truly felt in the heart space.

I have never felt more aligned to my true self

Maria’s awareness of energies and the conditions of the mind are truly impressive. She knows exactly what’s going on. She is so attuned to other peoples’ energy that she just knows where you’re at. After working with her I have never felt more alive and aligned to my true self.

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

During and after our session, something happened within me that I cannot explain nor would it even make sense to anyone. There was a part of me that felt my being been taken over by a real peacefulness that I’ve never encountered before. Sounds odd but it’s the truth.

Maria is the real deal. You will sense it the moment you lay eyes on her. She offered much, much more than I’ve derived from other teachers; highly specific and personal recommendations. It is as though I got a crash graduate course from spirit. Could not more highly recommend!

    Hello Maria, first of all I want to say thanks for the five steps of afirmative prayer.
    But, I am not more clear on the idea and if you don’t mind please make it more clear to me.
    Thank you again.

  3. Hi Amanuel,

    Thanks for your comment and question.

    Could you tell me more clearly what it is that you don’t understand? The steps are pretty straight forward, although the ‘concept’ might be a bit difficult to comprehend perhaps.

    If you tell me what specific step you don’t quite understand, I’ll explain it to you.

    In the meantime, this other post can bring some insight to you, it’s a similar process:

    The main thing about any (affirmative/scientific) prayer is to ask with a certainty of prayer being answered and remove doubt completely. (meaning no begging and pleading 🙂 )

    Peace and Blessings,
