    The Gentle Way Books

Welcome to this edition of my Benevolent Outcomes Blog for everyone that enjoys inspiring stories from around the world from people using this simple, yet powerful spiritual tool each day in their lives.  It makes life so much easier when you do.  You start with the simple, mundane requests such as a parking spot or seat on a subway or train to gain trust that this WORKS!

As an example, you would say, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for a parking space next to _________, thank you!” Now you don’t do this one minute before arrival—you make the request as long in advance as possible to give your Guardian Angel (your GA) time to set it what with another GA so that a person who was planning to leave, leaves at the exact time you arrive.

Please feel free to visit my website, where you can also read or listen to my weekly F.R.E.E. newsletters, articles I’ve written for magazines, a couple of chapters of my first book, and more!  You can even print out signs to help you to remember to request Benevolent Outcomes each day.

This week I’m going to discuss how to ask for Benevolent Outcomes for other people. The earthquake in Haiti is a good example, so let’s begin.


Susie writes:  “I know you are being flooded with emails concerning the earthquake in Haiti and all the suffering that is going on there.   I’ve been asking my GA and other spiritual beings to help these people but I guess my question is how can I be sure that my requests are being heard?  Hope this is not too trivial.  I really enjoy reading your newsletters.”

When you say a Benevolent Prayer for someone else, you don’t always see immediate feedback as you do with many of your MBO requests.  In my first book I described how saying a BP for a couple on a plane, who had left her purse at security, and seeing the joy they felt when she returned with the purse.  So you do have to say these and have faith that they do work.

In this case have you not read nor seen on TV the massive amount of aid both from governments and the general public, it is huge.  So the question is, have you said a Benevolent Prayer for these people yet? If not, say RIGHT NOW, “I ask any and all beings to assist the people in Haiti affected by the earthquake to be rescued, and to be aided in recovering from this disaster, and may the results be even better than we can hope for or expect, thank you!” You say “ask” instead of “request,” as a whole different set of angels responds to these Benevolent Prayers INSTANTLY!
If we have hundreds more people saying this prayer, think about the ENERGY that is created!  Pass this along to your friends, and perhaps lead your group in everyone saying this—not just you.


Peggy writes:  “Hearing you talk about requesting MBO’s has changed our lives here in Ohio.  We’re having some major construction work done on our home so I requested a MBO for our carpenters’ workday.  Before they left that day they remarked that they didn’t know what happened but their work just flowed effortlessly and they got so much done!  I told them I asked for a MBO for them.

”I told my husband Joe about MBO’s and he was so excited about trying this.  We both do it every day now and throughout the day for everything–it’s a wonderous feeling to know none of us are alone in this journey.  This past Monday Joe asked for a MBO prior to leaving for an out of town 2-day workshop he was teaching.  His fellow teacher came in to work that day horribly sick–so Joe said he could handle the class all by himself.  His co-teacher has 16 years experience–Joe is a new teacher with 8 months experience in teaching weatherization techniques.  8 months ago he was milking cows at an organic dairy and working at Wal-Mart.  Our area is so economically challenged and it took him 2-1/2 years to find his present job.  Everything was on the line with this class.

”The class turned out so great–his 27 students all wrote great reviews of their experience with him.  His new bosses were so impressed that he was willing to handle this class by himself and that he did so well.  Joe’s confidence has soared and his future looks bright with this company and in this new field.

”I do upholstery and continually ask for MBO’s on every piece of furniture I work on.  I was so behind in all my orders because of a recent move we made and all the construction work going on around here.  Now I’m completely caught up and once again feel professional, on-time and excited about the magic of creating beauty with great workmanship.  I was assisted in clearing the back-log by my angelic helpers.  Thank you Tom, for sharing this incredible awareness in so many of us!”

And thank you Peggy for sharing some great MBO’s!


Laurie writes:  “Here’s another example that our guardian angels are ALWAYS listening:  Recently, my mom came home from the grocery store and realized that she didn’t have her purse.  (It’s a small clutch, not a big handbag.)  After some confusion and worry, she remembered what I’d told her about MBOs and asked God and the angels to help her find her purse.  She didn’t use the exact language of “I request a most benevolent outcome for…” but the message went out!  She returned to the grocery store parking lot two hours later (having first cancelled all her credit cards just in case), and while she and one of the managers were combing the area where she’d parked, the fellow bringing in the shopping carts came up to them.  He held up my mom’s little clutch purse and said:  “Are you looking for this?”  Not only had he found the clutch, he’d found it only a few minutes before encountering my mom.  It had been wedged in the flip-up seat of the grocery cart.  (Nicely hidden.  Thank you guardian angels!)

”And what a great case of synchronicity.  The purse had been sitting in the cart, out in the parking lot, for TWO HOURS, before my mom, the manager, and the cart collecting employee all merged.  Wow!

”I write fiction for a living, but if I wrote this incident in a story an editor would say it was contrived!”

Recently here in Dallas my son could not find his very expensive cell phone (to call it just a cell phone does not do it justice).  He looked all over his bedroom and office in our house and then looked in his car and so on.  Naturally he called his cell phone from all over the house but couldn’t find it.  I reminded him to request a Benevolent Outcome and he did.

My wife asked me to search his car once again, so I took my cell phone to ring his along with a flashlight.  When I rang it and heard no sound, I said out loud to myself, “It’s not here.” After it went to voice message, I dialed again and as it was ringing, my son came up behind me with his cell phone ringing.  It had been buried in a drawer in his desk and for some reason he didn’t hear it ringing before.  I got to go back to TV after 11 hours in the office.  A nice, quick MBO!


Daphnee in Vienna, Austria writes:  “I read your newsletter with interest and there was a request about marriage in the last one. I am trying also to formulate an MBO so that my marriage dissolves without having to go through drama and trauma.  Can you help me with a formulation that is more positive?”

For Daphnee and anyone else going through a divorce right now, I would suggest, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for dissolving my marriage in the most benevolent way possible, and ask that the emotional cords that are connected to my spouse be severed in a most benevolent manner, thank you!”

Then you can also say a Benevolent Prayer for you and your husband–“I ask that any and all beings assist and comfort both my husband and me so that this divorce be as amicable as possible and may the results be even better than we can hope for or expect, thank you!”

I Hope this eases the process for both of you and for any reader in the same situation.


Previously I included in a couple of blogs about my trip to Cannes, France and the Frankfurt Book Fair in October, but was a trip to England I took last March.

I requested a large number of MBO’s during the trip.  I now always request MBO’s for the safe arrival of my luggage, for getting through the Security line with no problems, and for sitting next to an interesting person on the plane. I always travel business class if I have enough mileage to upgrade, and on the Continental Flight to London from Houston, I did just that, but the plane was not full and there was no one next to me.  That allowed me to “spread out” with things in the seat next to me, and there was no sound of someone eating while I went to sleep after taking a Melatonin (vitamin that helps you sleep if you are not familiar with the name).  Plus it was easy getting up to go to the restroom without having to climb over someone else in the middle of the night.

I requested a MBO to easily find Val Stoner at the London Heathrow Airport, and had stood there waiting at the coffee shop for less than 5 minutes when she arrived.  I stayed at a very nice Bed & Breakfast in their largest room Val had arranged.

The B&B was only a one-block walk to the railway station, where on Thursday I went to Windsor for lunch with one of my DVD company clients in the UK.  I had to change trains twice and requested MBO’s for getting to the right train. At each of the two stops there were kind people who directed me to the correct track.  I even sat near a gentleman from Philadelphia who’s a “head-hunter” living in Windsor and a lady going to a play that was headed for the West End in London.  They directed me in the right direction to Don Beni’s restaurant.  The waiters sing there.  Fun place if you are ever in Windsor visiting the castle.

On the way back I requested a MBO for the trip and was OK with the first change, but arriving in Twyford, I wound up following a sign saying Henley, but it was incorrect.  There was NO ONE on that platform to ask.  Then suddenly out of nowhere two ladies appeared, inspecting some construction work on the platform.  I asked and they said that the train was on a different platform and pointed to the train already sitting there.  I thanked them and ran up the stairs, over the bridge and down to the platform, thinking they might close the doors any second.  They didn’t until 3 minutes after I entered the train car.  Now THAT was a Benevolent Outcome!

We had a great time in the workshop and I had requested a MBO for that, and had everyone request it too. Then on Sunday Val and her husband Jim took me to the London City Airport for the flight to Nice, France.  I naturally requested a MBO for the drive, as we had to go through the middle of London. We arrived in plenty of time.  I really must publicly thank Val for all the work and friendship.  She’s a great lady and a catalyst for Benevolent change in the United Kingdom.  Mine was the first workshop she arranged in the UK, but she has several more in the works.  If there’s anyone else that would like to sponsor a workshop, let me know soon, as I must plan months in advance.

The London City Airport is such a small airport that they close the Security line down at times.  Naturally I requested a MBO for my luggage to arrive on time, and for my trip through the Security checks.  I also requested a MBO to sit next to someone interesting on the plane. The Air France commuter jet I flew on holds 81 people and it was stuffed with people attending the world TV market I was headed for.  There was a jolly English chap that sat on my row in the plane and we exchanged business cards.  He’s the managing director of an internet supply company and has already sent me an email upon my return suggesting we do some business.  The runway is so short that the pilot kept the brakes on while revving the two jet engines up to full power, then letting off the brakes and off we went like a catapult.

Upon arrival in Nice, it was in a downpour.  I had been given a free bus pass as part of my “platinum card” service (earned through many years of attendance at this market), so I requested a MBO to not have to wait too long after I picked up my luggage, and the wait was a short 10 minutes. Again there were lots of market people on the bus to talk to.   As it was raining, I hurriedly walked the two blocks to my hotel with an umbrella stuck in my jacket while I rolled two bags.  After checking in, I requested a MBO to pick up my badge with no problems and that went smoothly—with no lines. I had requested a MBO for someone interesting to sit next to for dinner, and it turned out to be my old friend Dominique, as a dinner with a French client had been cancelled when they decided not to attend at the last minute. It was nice to catch up, as I know that having these dinners will not happen as often in the future; Theo has told me that our paths will divide more in the future, especially when requesting Benevolent Outcomes becomes widely known in the next couple of years.

Each day at the market (as I do every day) I would say the EXPECT GREAT THINGS TODAY mantra (found on the website under the SIGNS tab for new readers of this blog).  And then I would request a MBO for all the meetings that day to be productive, and the results to be even better than I could hope for or expect.

I won’t bore you with the rest of the details of the business portion.  I requested MBO’s for not having to wait long for the bus back to the Nice Airport and it was again less than a 10 minute wait. I was hoping for an upgrade to business class for the flight to Paris, but it was all coach.  The MBO was that I had gotten in the Elite or Business Class line so my wait was much shorter than the coach line, and two of my clients from Japan were in line and they got me an invitation to the Elite lounge where I had a free sandwich and cola.

In Paris, my bag showed up in reasonable time and the wait for the shuttle bus to the hotel was not too long.  I flew back to Houston on Air France the next morning next to an attorney whose main client in Europe was Airbus, and he was pleasant.  On the plane I mentioned just a little about The Gentle Way.  As we approached the Passport Control there was a huge crowd there from two 747’s that had arrived before us.  As we went through the queue, I saw there were two lanes that were roped off.  I quickly requested a MBO for them to open, and they did open just three people in front of me. I told the attorney that this was an example of THE GENTLE WAY.

This Blog is for people just discovering the simple, yet powerful spiritual tool of requesting Benevolent Outcomes in their lives. You’ll find that requesting Most Benevolent Outcomes (MBO’s) will lower your stress and fear levels, and give you a more successful and calm life. It does not mean that you will not have challenges in your life—they’ll just be easier to work through.

Please go to my website , where you can read two sample chapters of the book to get your started. I also have articles there you can read that I’ve written for various regional, national, and international magazines to give you even more suggestions.


Heather writes: “Dear Tom, I just had to write and let you know just one story that happened to me and there have been many since I originally found your website. We just moved 2 weeks ago to a wonderful house in the country. That was part of 1 MBO. But the one I wish to tell you about is the one that saved my family. We had just been here 3 or 4 days when a huge thunderstorm kicked up.

“Now I love a good storm but this one got nuts fast. And all of the sudden I realized we had a tornado heading straight for us. I could hear it coming and see the way the wind was blowing the debris. I shouted for my children so we could run down the basement and as we running towards it I mentally requested a MBO for the storm to not cause damage or injury, and just like that it slowed right down and it died to a more gentle rain.

“To say I was completely in awe would be an understatement. And I know this saved my family and the house we just moved into. I say a huge Thank you everyday for finding your site. And I cannot tell you how many times I have made a MBO and it has worked. So again, Thank you!!”

I do recommend that you say your MBO request out loud. In this case I’m sure there was such emotion and danger involved that there was an exception made.


Patrice writes: “I would like to tell you about a neat story that happened to me as a beginner using MBO’s. I was taking my son to the Special Olympics, which is a big event in Boston. We were nervous about parking because the event was huge and parking is few and far between at these events, especially in Boston. So you can imagine how handy MBO’s can be around here.

“We entered the parking lot and there was not a parking space to be found. So… I immediately requested a MBO for a parking spot to open. In the back of my mind I thought this probably won’t work but I’ll try anyhow. My husband looked at me like okey what are you doing ….then within seconds someone backed out and in we went to the space.

“My husband was so surprised. He turned to me and with a smile remarked “Nice job!” I was so, so delighted and stunned. Now this was quite a feat considering there were no parking spaces at all in this crowded lot in downtown Boston. It was quite remarkable.”


Diana writes: “I had another amazing experience with MBOs this summer holiday. “We went to Turkey, and I requested an MBO for the city where my in-laws lived, to be cooler and life more bearable at that time. In the city it was raining (a little) and so turned cooler than normally at that time. It never rained there in the summer. Even my mother-in-law was surprised at the weather. I had a huge smile, and of course thanks for my GA.

“Another thing was: my husband was requested to urgently meet a former business partner to “finish an accounting matter”. In the past they always hinted that we owed them money (we did not); they pushed us out after it become successful. Anyway, we thought they will again ask for that money. I requested a MBO for the meeting. The morning of the meeting, the guy forgot about it. But later in the day they had a meeting. My husband told me: the former partner handed him 2,000 usd in cash as a settlement of accounting. My jaw dropped. I like to think that my MBO was helping that.

“Recently 2 nights ago, I requested a MBO for help in organizing our office space as I have had some quarrels with my husband about that. I had almost instant insight about the situation. And my husband agreed that the idea was good on how to re-organize space.”


Darlene in Texas writes: “I always say an “MBO for Divine protection, keen awareness and defensive drivers all around me and a safe, uneventful trip to work” each morning before I back out of my driveway.

“If I’m running late I always “request an MBO for a compression of time to arrive and be able to punch the time clock at the precise time I am supposed to clock-in”. It has worked for me each and every time I have requested it. Sometimes, in my mind, I just know I’m going to be late but I never voice it. My GA’s always get me there.

“Last week I went to see my parents, 6 hours away. As I was returning home I went through a small town and in my haste to get back home, was pulled over for speeding (48 in a 35 mph zone). I only received a warning. Thank you for enlightening me on MBO’s. I use them ALL THE TIME!!!”


Gail writes: “My story is about a benevolent outcome I asked for when looking for a new kitty to add to my household. I requested just the right kitty for our family, and that when introduced to my old, huge cat and our dog, that there be none of the hissing and even fighting that usually happens at first. I still marvel at how complete and wonderful the outcome was.

“We found the most loving, sweet kitty (one year old) who is a complete joy for us. The extent of her gentleness and congeniality is unusual for a cat. And, from the first moment she met our cat and dog, she got along splendidly with them. Anyone who has introduced a cat into a household with another cat knows what a miracle this is.

“The Gentle Way helps us in our every day lives, reduces our anxiety, and is a good tool for turning our life challenges, big and small, over to a Higher Power.”


Kathy writes: “I have a MBO experience to share. A couple of months ago, I moved back to my small hometown in East Texas from the Dallas area. It has been a challenge to “slow down,” as the way it is in small towns, everyone moves at a leisurely pace.

“One morning on my way to do errands, I was stopped by a train. A lllooonnnggg train. I immediately recognized that this was a message from the Universe to slow down. I turned off my car ignition and while waiting, I recalled childhood memories of waiting for this train, which was quite relaxing, or so I thought. At the first sign of the last car
in the train, I started my ignition and zoomed across the tracks while the red lights at the railroad stop were still flashing.

“As I crossed the tracks, I saw a police car waiting on the opposite side, and remembered that I’m to wait for the flashing lights to cease before crossing. The policeman immediately turned on his lights, did a u-turn and I pulled over. When the officer approached my car, I had registration and insurance papers in hand and immediately apologized stating that I was wrong and didn’t wait for the lights to go off. I also added that it had been decades that I had to wait for a train.

“As he went to his car to run a check on me, I began thinking that I did not have the money to pay for a ticket and said the following MBO, “I request a MBO in this situation that I receive a warning ticket or may it be an outcome better than I could ever expect or imagine. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

” The officer came to the car and said, “I’m going to give you a warning; however, I don’t have my warning book with me. This ticket would cost you $300 or more. You need to learn to slow down and take it easy. Okay?” “Yes Officer, I will.” And then I said to my GA, whose name is Lillian, “Thank you Lillian!” ”


Lynn writes from Oregon: “I so enjoy your newsletters and reading about the MBO’s. Just wanted to let you know that MBOs fill my life now…even without asking. Yesterday my friend Diane and I drove to Portland, and hour trip over the coast range. I always ask for safe expedient smooth journey when I do this. She says that she forgets, but feels like they happen anyway. And as we talked, I realized I feel the same way… Now that I got my angels in action, I think they are just there. I will still ask, but not worry as much if I forget? Just wondering if you think this happens, we are putting our angels into action?”

My Guardian Angel Theo has told me that even as long as I have been requesting Most Benevolent Outcomes (MBO’s–around 14 years now), if I were to stop requesting MBO’s tomorrow it wouldn’t be too long that I would be just like everyone else reacting to events and not being protected and guided.

Remember, one of the major benefits of requesting MBO’s is it keeps you on your soul contract or life path that YOU LAID OUT prior to your birth for the purpose of gaining the most knowledge and having the most experiences which this life can provide you.


Annette writes: “I had a very stressful time when we were beginning work on writing our RFP (Request for Proposal) for our Federal contract. I left my second job to be available to work on this and honestly, after sitting in a few meetings, did not want to be involved (my gut told me we would lose a portion of our contract) but….this was part of my job.

“My friends and family had been telling me that I needed a break after working 2 jobs for 3 years, dealing with my Dad’s passing and my Mom 800 miles away and the contract issues at work was just too stressful. My GA kept telling me that I needed to get some rest and several times I would say to my GA – “I can’t take a break right now, I’ll take one
when all this is over”.

“On December 24th at 7:45am – I fell and broke my ankle outside of a shopping center while getting that last minute Christmas gift on my way to the office. I looked like something from a cartoon; I slipped on ice and one leg went one way and one went the other – I landed on my more than ample backside, slid down the ice and since I was wearing boots with excellent tread, when my foot hit the pavement my right leg twisted up behind me and TADA – a nice spiral fracture, dislocated foot/ankle and a few other interesting, but minor injuries.

“The first person to see me was an off duty paramedic who came running to me followed by an on duty police officer. In the ER we had to use my new flannel PJ’s I had picked up for myself as an impulse buy (they were only $5.00!) after they cut my jeans away and as I lay in the ER for 10 hours I heard my GA say “You needed to take a break”. They reset the ankle, but I would need surgery on the leg and would have to wait a week to let all the swelling go down.

“I had a great pity party Christmas morning as I was in some pain (my husband – such an Angel) and a week later, had surgery. I was 8 weeks out of the office and 12 weeks in a wheelchair. While out of the office the person that one of the managers wanted to write the RFP got to write it. I worked some from home with our Budget Officer and learned
two very important things:

“1) Be careful what you ask for….like not wanting to work on the RFP
2) Listen to your GA when they looking out for your health – they have
your best interest at heart
3) My GA has a sense of humor
4) My GA took care of me completely; off-duty paramedic, police
officer, the flannel PJ’s. My GA had everything ready.
5) Sometimes what seems at first to be a negative thing turns out to be
a positive thing.

“I learned several “lessons”, some serious and some humorous – all of which made a big impact on my and facilitated some changes that have been positive.

“So slow down and “smell the roses” everyone!”

And with that I’ll wish you a Most Benevolent Week everyone!
