What To Do When Our Prayers Has Not Been Answered? (1/2)

There is but one answer to this question and that is: Understanding.

Above all it’s always best to ask for understanding and wisdom about something before you ask for the thing or desired change itself.

Ask to understand yourself better, ask to understand God better, life better, the situation better, and so on.

Ask sincerely; what am I not seeing clearly here? What am I missing?

What is there for me to see that I’m not seeing?

Am I avoiding something, or refusing to see something? What is that?

Here’s an article that you might find helpful: mariaerving.com/transformative-prayer

The old thought pattern and behaviors around prayer (and seeking answers) has to be interrupted if you find that your prayers has gone unmanifested or if you feel the pressing need to find solutions to a challenge that you find yourself in at the moment.

You can absolutely ask for the answer and solution directly from the all-knowing Source, and this is what this two part article series will be about.

There is a solution to any question you might have, although asking for understanding and wisdom opens up for even more than direct solutions will.

But let’s focus on all types of questions that you might have. No limits. 

First, I want to invite you, and maybe even challenge you, to go to the mirror and look yourself in the eyes and say:

”Be still and know that I am God”.

Go ahead, do that right now before we continue because it will help you put yourself in the right frame of mind.

Because God is not outside of us, in fact; just as we live, move and have our being in God, God also lives, moves and has Its being in us.

And we can learn to live in this awareness and function from it by letting go of the conscious mind on a daily basis by going into prayer and meditation where we turn to the intuitive mind.

All the answers that we seek already exist, so there is no need to be begging and pleading a God ‘out there’ to hear your prayers, but instead go into prayer assuming that answers already exist, because they do.

They already exist in the superconscious mind (the God-mind), and by silencing the conscious mind we allow the wisdom that is already there to come forth.

While the subconscious mind is a memory bank and can help you find solutions that has worked in the past, the superconscious mind has the capacity to give you something you have never known before; new ideas, new thoughts, new inspiration, new ways of doing and seeing things; it’s innovative and has infinite capacity to bring forth the perfect solutions to any questions or challenges we have.

There are no limits to the presence; it’s the God-mind – the all-knowing mind.

That’s where intuition, inspiration and direct knowing comes from.

So it’s an intuitive process where we release the power and wisdom we all have within us and we do it by silence.

So whenever you find yourself fretting over something, or struggling to get an answer on something, or if you feel the need to an answer that will bring you out of any difficulties, or if you lack inspiration, whatever it might be for you personally, then stop the doing, and be still.

Just stop, and BE.

Spend time in nature for example, and when you come back home your mind will be refreshed and ‘new’.

There’s a saying; ”don’t just do something – stand there!” that really fits into what I’m trying to convey.

Don’t try so hard with your conscious mind to fix something, but instead go out for a long walk in nature, walk in silence and ‘talk with God’.

Find a spot somewhere where you can sit and meditate and receive what you need to know, receive new inspiration, receive solutions.

Or just sit at home and pray and meditate. It’s the silence that is important.

The usual ”please God help me”-prayer is not going to help, but instead I want to invite you to know that there is already an answer and that you have access to it by listening within.

In that stillness you will receive it, whatever it is that you need.

It will come as a flow of ideas, inspiration and knowingness; it will inform the conscious mind and you will find the path forward illuminated, but probably not in the way you have thought you would.

Be open to newness, ‘infinite possibilities’ if you will.

Open up to something you have never considered before, or seen before, or understood before.

Sometimes it helps to write the questions down and then when you have done that, then go into the silence.

Here’s a couple of articles that I think you will find helpful:

Meditation and Intuition: How To Receive Answers 

Write Questions To Your Intuition (Journal) 

An important thing to know is that there’s a way in which we are to listen, and it sounds contradictory, but we should listen without trying to listen.

Don’t strain to hear or listen, but let go and allow the answers to come to you.

You remain attentive with the intention to receive answers, but you don’t try to make anything happen, you let the process happen, so it’s important to be very still and give it some time.

(The ego can become restless in this process but just give it some time.)

After a while things start to flow and you will feel the presence of God and then you can begin to ask questions, or simply listen if you have written the questions in your journal before you went into the silence.

Then you just let whatever that wants to come to just emerge from within. Let it come to you. 

Remember to assume that the prayer has already been answered and that all you need to do is to become aware of what is already within you.

In the silence you are one with the God-mind, so you listen to the superconscious mind, or the ”Father”, ‘who’s great pleasure is to give you the Kingdom’.

Go into this process knowing that the God-mind wants to fulfill Itself through you, it wants to give you the Kingdom.

The answers are already within your consciousness, and you get access to them by moving from the lower level of consciousness (the conscious mind) to the higher level, and you do it by silence.

Here’s one of my books ”The Power of Aligned Thought – How The Mind Works And How To Use It” where you can learn more about how the conscious, subconscious and superconscious mind works and how to access the God-mind:

The Power of Aligned Thought E-book.

So to receive answers and guidance we must open ourselves to whatever greater possibilities there are for us, and we can expect to receive guidance that we may never have thought about before, so let the God-mind within you suggest something to you that you haven’t known or been aware of before.

Center yourself in God by silence, knowing that God is already centered in you, waiting for you to make conscious contact with it.

Behold, the Kingdom of God is at hand”.

A calm came over me

I could feel the tension leaving my body and a calm came over me by just being in her presence. Everything flows so naturally with her and my life is more beautiful and I feel at peace knowing I have her by my side. I feel blessed to have her in my life.

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.

Val, Melbourne, Australia

You have really made a difference in how my mind works

I don’t know if I make sense, but all I can say is that I feel blissful. And I can’t thank you enough for that. I don’t know exactly how you managed this, but you have really made a difference in how my mind works.

I cannot believe what you were able to achieve in one session

I don’t really know where to start. I find myself at a loss for words. All I can say to you is Thank You. This was unlike any healing session that I have ever been in and I say that from the bottom of my skeptical, over analytical heart who had literally tried everything one could think of. I cannot recommend you enough to other people, you are a gift. I also cannot believe what you were able to achieve in one session, to me it is groundbreaking. Thank you!!!

Rosie Bebawi, Marbella, Spain

I had a complete turnaround to my situation

The distance healing was amazing. I had a complete turnaround to my situation so many thanks for helping me transform something I had lost hope about. It’s a miracle and the outcome could not have turned out better! If you want to see a real shift not just psychological but spiritual shift, then Maria is the lady to see. I am so glad I found you!

– Sophie P

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.

Andrew B, San Diego, CA, USA

Connecting with you is magical

Maria THANK YOU. Sometimes just by connecting with you even briefly gives me instant clarity, it’s really magical, thank you so much. I trust your guidance so much, I’m just so grateful!

Maria helped me recreate my life

Maria is amazing. She is a gift to this world with an incredible intuitive ability. She has helped me to refocus my energy and recreate my life.

C. Málaga, Spain

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!

– Lisa, USA

Profound shift

I can’t put into words how much you have helped me. I couldn’t have kept it all together had I not experienced a PROFOUND shift during and after my session with you.

Maria is leading people to a new way of being

Maria is changing the world by her presence. She’s leading people to a new way of being. She’s rare because she’s able to see where you are at in your journey and can show you the way forward. I feel so incredibly grateful that she has been a companion during this time of change. If you feel drawn to connect with Maria I encourage you to move forward with confidence.

– Carolyn W. Asheville, NC, USA

I experienced a PROFOUND shift 

I can’t put into words how much you have helped me. I couldn’t have kept it all together had I not experienced a PROFOUND shift during and after my session with you.

I needed help in getting my life back

From the first sentence you spoke directly related to what I was going through, I felt so uplifted and light. It still blows me away when I think about it now! Never once did I feel judged, or uncomfortable in any way. I feel like this heavy weight of negativity has fallen away from me and I couldn’t get those awful feelings back if I tried. I can’t stress enough what a gift it is to be able to work with somebody like Maria. Talk about amazing grace!

I was taken over by a peacefulness

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.

It was more than I could ever hoped for or expected

My experience with Maria was more than I could ever hoped for or expected. I had such a positive experience working with her. I feel like a huge weight have been lifted and I have so much more perspective on what I have been struggling with. She cleared up my energy and I feel more myself, more at peace and all around better mentally and emotionally since my sessions with her.

Miriam, Espoo, Finland

More transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried

I highly recommend Maria! I don’t even recognize the person who started working with her a few months ago. Maria clearly sees what is blocking, stopping or limiting you. Working with her has been more transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried. There have been profound shifts in the way I see myself and the world, so many shifts in my energy and life. I find myself so much lighter and freer. Thank you Maria!

Britt, Marbella, Spain

Can’t recommend her enough!

Working with Maria was one of the best investments I ever made in myself. I’ve seen immediate shifts in my energy as well as learned to work with my own energy and mind. It has been one of the single most transformational experiences of my life. Can’t recommend her enough!

– Chris, USA

My life has changed dramatically

Since plugging in to your words of wisdom my life has changed dramatically. You pointed me in the right direction and that gave me courage to continue moving through whatever process I may find myself in and the ability to take refuge in the truth within me.

 I am so glad that I reached out to you

Maria, you are truly godsend. I cannot describe how happy I am. I have no idea what you did and how you did, but I am truly grateful to you. My words in this email cannot thank you enough. Today is the first day that I woke up feeling as if I am ready to take on the world. I am so glad that I reached out to you. I am truly grateful to you. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family!


Her unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough

Maria’s intuitive abilities have been instrumental to the personal growth I’ve experienced as a result of working together. I’ve had HUGE shifts in my beliefs. Her undivided attention, presence and unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough and release old patterns and replace them with new self-empowering practices that have truly shifted my life. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone. I am forever changed and forever grateful!

Joanna, USA

Could not more highly recommend

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!

Catherine Rondeau, Westport, Connecticut, USA

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

With only that one session and the healing she carried out, I’ve been without grudges, feelings of being hurt or anything on those lines. 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.

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

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.

– A.

My life has radically changed for the better

I finally know my worth. I feel so different now, I feel lighter, happier and more self confident and it’s easy to let go of people and situations that don’t serve me. I treasure the time I spend talking with Maria and look forward to my sessions with her. There has been big changes in my life, synchronicities showing up like magic and I’m constantly blown away at the business and opportunities that I’m attracting. My life has radically changed for the better after I met Maria.

— Robin, New York, USA

Thank you, Maria!

I couldn’t be more grateful to have Maria in my life. Her guidance and energy is profound!

– Robert, CA, USA
