Benevolent Outcomes Blog 3-24-12




Welcome to the Benevolent Outcomes Blog, and welcome to everyone who subscribed in the past week.  This Blog is for people just discovering how to use a very simple, yet powerful and effective spiritual tool you can use every day the rest of your life.  It will lessen the stress and fear of life in general, and will make your life easier.  It’s so simple a lot of people say “It can’t be this easy,” but it is, because IT WORKS!  This reconnects you with your Guardian Angel, or higher power, or whatever your belief is.  You simply say, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for…….., thank you!”  When you read the stories below, sent from all over the world, we use the acronym MBO for Most Benevolent Outcomes, GA for Guardian Angel, and BP for Benevolent Prayers (what you ask for other people).


I have some new signs that you can print out on my website under the SIGNS tab to help you remember to request MBO’s.  Check it out at

Have you bought one of The Gentle Way books yourself yet?  If not, why not?   On one MBO forum a lady posted that this is better than the Secret or anything she has ever tried, because IT WORKS!  You can buy them online by simply going to my website and clicking on the images on the side (which takes you to, or you can call my publisher direct at 800-450-0985.  The first book is also published in Germany and Greece.  

Subscribing to this blog is easy, just go to  the column on the right side and click on the RSS button.  You can also find on the website a couple of sample chapters of my first book to give you more suggestions on requesting MBO’s.  Please forward this blog to your friends if you enjoy reading it.  In the Articles & News section I have a Search Function you can use to search all my articles and newsletters by simply entering a word or phrase.  And be sure to request to be my Friend on Facebook.  I give extra information during the week there.   

Please email me your MBO stories to show others how to use this simple tool to TomTMoore6(at)  Now for some inspiring stories.


I’ll begin with an MBO story of my own.  I NEVER get in a car without requesting a MBO for the drive to wherever I’m headed—even if someone else is driving (which I called THE RADIANT EFFECT in my first book).  In that book, I told the story of renting a car to drive from the Nice, France airport to Cannes with my trunks for a world TV market and requested a MBO for the drive; a little French car just in front of me on the highway lost control, slid into to median rail divider and popped out right in front of me.  Had I been five seconds sooner I would have hit him, but easily avoided by going all the way to the right side of the roadway and slowly passed by.

This time, after I started the program to send out the newsletter, I drove down to have a haircut.  After requesting a MBO for my drive back to the Kroger grocery store near where I live in Plano, I took the North Dallas Tollway back and exited at Legacy Drive, for those of you who know the area.  A large black pickup truck turned onto Legacy in front of me and was on the outside of the three lanes, so I took the middle in order to not be right behind him.  As we both approached the signal light for the entrance to the Shops at Legacy, I could see another black smaller SUV car in the turn lane to turn left into the north end of the Shops at Legacy and could just barely see a car in the opposite turn lane to turn south.  

Suddenly the black SUV started to turn; obviously she had not seen the black pickup as her vision was blocked by the other car in the opposite turn lane.   I’m sure my eyes became as wide as saucers, as I saw there was no way the pick-up truck, traveling at about 40-45 miles per hour (65-72 kph) could stop.  The truck slammed into the SUV and literally lifted it off the pavement.  I came to a stop about five feet or so from the SUV that had been turned 180 degrees after the collision.  

Here I was stuck in the middle of the intersection.  I had room to go in between the two vehicles, but there was debris all over the road, so I backed up (luckily the SUV behind me had stopped before the intersection) and turned right as if I was entering the Shops road; I planned to park on the brick and concrete divider to check on the lady, as I could see she was dazed, but the SUV turned right behind me and another car was in the right lane too, making it impossible to stop.  People were running out of the shops to the lady’s car to check on her, so I decided it was best to keep the traffic from piling up preventing access by the emergency vehicles.  I turned down a lane with parking spaces parallel to Legacy and drove on.  I immediately said a Benevolent Prayer for both drivers to fully recover from any injuries they had experienced.  

So may I remind you to ALWAYS request a MBO wherever you go, even if it’s just to the local supermarket.  


Dong in the Philippines writes:  Thank you again for accepting my friend invitation in Facebook last week and for sharing your work to everyone. I haven’t read your book yet (I don’t think it is available here in the Philippines) but I have read all articles and newsletters in your web site. I’ve learned about your work a few months ago and immediately started requesting MBOs. I’ve noticed after a few weeks that life has become gentler – less stress driving, less stress at work and even the banks and collection agencies are more forgiving when I miss my payments. I also noticed that when I don’t get what I requested, I would get an explanation (or at least an idea) why. Here are a couple of MBO experiences I had involving rain (I’ve been having an urge for days to send you these stories and I think it’s my GA shouting in my ear).

My wife is a real estate agent and last month she had a client who wanted to look at two development sites. It had been raining since the night before the tour and when we met the client, there was no indication that the rain would stop anytime soon. So, on the way to the sites, I whispered a MBO for the rain to avoid the places we were going to. When we approached the gate of the first site the rain died down to only a drizzle and completely stopped as soon as I parked the car. As we stepped out the car the clouds above us broke just enough to show the sun while it still rained on the surrounding area. It stayed that way for more than two hours. Just as we were leaving the site, the clouds became dark again and it started to rain. The same thing happened when we got to the second site. The rain stopped and the sun came out again when we arrived and stayed that way for a few hours. The rain didn’t start again until we were already leaving. Of course I thanked my GA, the Sun and Gaia for the wonderful experience.

A few weeks ago, while I’m on my way home from work, it started to rain. Naturally I requested a MBO for the rain to stop for a while when I arrive – just long enough for me to get in the house without getting wet. I was surprised when the rain did not stop when I arrive but I trust the process. The next day at work I suddenly had an “aha” moment and suddenly realized what happened the previous night and why my request was not granted. I think my GA shouted in my ear because I wasn’t even thinking about the event. There is a stray dog that stays outside our fence. We can’t let it in as we already have three dogs that are very territorial, but we feed him and my father-in-law would set up a beach umbrella by the fence for the dog whenever it rains. Because it was raining when I arrived home, my father in law opened the gates for me and that’s when he saw the dog getting wet from the rain. So he set up the beach umbrella for the dog’s shelter. It turned out to be a most benevolent outcome after all. Now I know definitely that angels also look after our animal friends.

Oh, and I request a most benevolent outcome for these stories to help in any way someone new to requesting MBOs and help attract more people to the gentle way and may the result be even better than we can hope for or expect. Thank you!


Rhonda writes on Facebook: My husband and I use MBO’s and BP’s constantly, with great effect. I can’t tell you how many times I have found things using MBO’s. This weekend, I was putting together the 25-30 page newsletter that I do each month and I was having trouble coming up with a visual format that pleased me. I was grumbling about it to myself, saying things like, “This sucks. This doesn’t work. I hate this.” Finally, I realized I hadn’t done an MBO, and while I was fixing myself a cup of coffee, promptly said something like, “I request the Most Benevolent Outcome for inspiration for the newsletter format. Thank you thank you thank you.” I IMMEDIATELY thought of something, went back to the computer and came up with a stunning visual format. That made me happy the rest of the day! Thank you, Tom, for bringing this to so many people’s attention! Our angels rock!!!


Kostya in the Ukraine writes:  Yesterday was a nice sunny day; I had a nice walk on a Dnipro river. But my mother stayed at home for the whole day. This morning I woke up, saw another sunny day and requested an MBO for my mother to come out of the house today. In 30 min she said that she’ll go to a dacha. Great!

Just a reminder for anyone living in the northern latitudes.  Gaia says she’ll give you one sunny day a week, but you have to ask for it.  So early each week request a MBO for a Sunny Saturday!


Lee writes:  Hi, Tom. I have an MBO for you. My grandson has a “comfort” stuffed animal that we call his “Woobie.” He was getting ready for bed and we couldn’t find it anywhere. We looked high and low. Finally I remembered MBO’s and said one immediately for help in locating his most sacred possession. Within 3 seconds a thought popped into my head and I asked my husband if it was still in his truck from when he picked the baby up at nursery school. He went outside and looked and there it was in the car seat! Tragedy averted and very quickly!! I said thank you, thank you, thank you!!


Ann writes: My MBO story happened this winter. After going to bed one evening, I woke with severe acid reflux. I was quite sick and very disturbed. I thankfully remembered to do an MBO. The moment I said thank you, the acid reflux was gone immediately. I wasn”t surprised, but I was so thrilled that it worked immediately. I asked to remain free of this acid reflux, and I have not experienced it again. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tool with us to do MBO’s. I do them all the time about everything, and not only do they work, I feel so good about doing them. I have shared with many people and hopefully they will benefit from them also. I know some already have.  Thanks again for all you share with us.


Fredrick writes:  What could be a more benevolent outcome than coming back to Oklahoma thinking I would have to bury my father, but instead I’m taking him fishing! He is 96 years old, frail, and was in the hospital with pneumonia and end stage kidney failure. We were ready to order the flowers. Many people were praying for him in their own ways, but my sister was using Most Benevolent Outcomes. I had never heard of this, but felt it was something I could do, so I chimed right in.

Now, the physical therapist at his nursing center has organized a little fishing expedition for the two of us at a nearby lake for tomorrow. Dad has been my fishing buddy for the last 50 years. I don’t think he likes to eat fish all that much, but fishing was a way for father and son to spend time together. To go fishing with my father  another time is a precious gift for us both.

Thank you for teaching this great approach. 

Fredrick wrote later to say the fishing expedition had gone great.  They didn’t catch any fish which was a MBO for the fish.

Benevolent Outcomes Blog 11-20-10




Welcome to this week’s edition of my Benevolent Outcomes Blog, and welcome to everyone who subscribed in the past week.  This Blog is for people just discovering how to use a very simple, yet powerful and effective spiritual tool you can use every day the rest of your life.  It will lessen the stress and fear of life in general, and will make your life easier.  It’s so simple a lot of people say “It can’t be this easy,” but it is, because IT WORKS!

As we are in the middle of the Christmas Season, please keep in mind that Angel books make a great Christmas or Hanukkah gift! So please give one or both my books as presents to your family and friends.  Book II has great inspirational stories that can really encourage someone to start requesting Benevolent Outcomes in their lives.  You can order them from, your local bookstore, or from my publisher, Light Technology (  If you don’t have book II yet, put it on your Christmas list for your family to buy for you!

Subscribing to this blog is easy, just go to .  I also email a weekly newsletter with more advanced topics, which you can subscribe to by going to  Here you can also read a couple of sample chapters of my first book to give you more suggestions on requesting MBO’s.  Please forward this blog to your friends if you enjoy reading it. In the Articles & News section I have a new Search Function you can use to search all my articles and newsletters by simply entering a word or phrase.  And be sure to request to be my Friend on Facebook.  I give extra information during the week there.

I am doing something a little different with this Blog.  As this is the Holiday Season with lots of family reunions, I thought it timely to present an article that has been published in many regional and even international magazines.  The title, as you saw above is:



Copyright 2010

The months of  November and December are generally viewed as great months of parties, dinners with friends, and reunions with families.  But it can be a highly stressful time when you’re in charge of the dinner, or you have to travel, or you and your family are worlds apart in lifestyles and/or beliefs.

I’m going to give you some tips and suggestions to make this time period much less stressful and a lot more pleasurable.  About twelve years ago, in reading spiritual articles and books, I kept noticing the word “benevolent” used in stories about angels and their relationship to us.  As this is not a commonly used word in the English language, it was quite noticeable to me.  One day I read a suggestion to request benevolent outcomes for events in your life. I decided to try it out, and was amazed how PERFECTLY it worked for everything, from small requests such as a parking spot next to a busy restaurant or a seat on the subway to the really important situations in my business and personal life.  After having made these requests between 10,000 and 15,000 times over the years, I am firmly convinced that our Guardian Angels are there to assist us in living more gentle lives.  We just have to ask.

So how do you request Benevolent Outcomes from your Guardian Angel?  If you are cooking for your friends or family, consider saying, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome that the food I prepare will be perfect for my group, and that our time spent together will be enjoyable, thank you!”  Always thank your Guardian Angel, and the more emotion you can put into these requests the better.

These requests need to be said out loud or in writing and must be for something that is specifically for you.  Certainly you can change the wording to fit the circumstances, but remember that the requests have to be benevolent for not only you, but also all those involved in the request, as even if you request something that is not benevolent for others in error or on purpose they will not work.  This is your best friend you are talking to, so be assured that you can speak directly to them and in these simple terms.  You can never “use up” your requests.  Webster’s dictionary defines Benevolent as “A kindly disposition to promote happiness and prosperity through good works, or by generosity in and pleasure of doing good works.”  Doesn’t that sound like what we would imagine our Guardian Angel would do if given a chance?

If you must travel during the holidays, there are a variety of requests you can make.  You can request Benevolent Outcomes:

  • That you remember to pack everything for the trip;
  • That the drive to the airport or to the place you are going to be safe and free of traffic;
  • That the check in at the airport be fast;
  • That your luggage will arrive safely and on time;
  • That you speed through the Security Line with no delays;
  • That your plane and any connections you make be on time;
  • That (if you are traveling alone) you sit next to someone interesting, or, if you need to sleep, next to someone who will not want to talk;
  • That your friends or family are there on time and easy to find;
  • That if you are taking part in any sport during your holiday, from touch football, to skiing, to scuba diving, you remain safe from injury.

As examples I request Most Benevolent Outcomes (MBO’s as I call them) for everything.  While packing for a trip, I’ll say, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for remembering everything I need to take on my trip. Thank you.”  When it comes time to go to the airport, I request a Benevolent Outcome for the drive to the airport in safety and with no delays.  How many people have you heard about that have missed a flight because of a traffic jam or wreck on the freeway?

At the airport, I’ll say, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome that my bags arrive safely and on time.  Thank you.”  Don’t forget to say “thank you” to your Guardian Angel.  David in St. Louis emailed to tell me he requested a Benevolent Outcome for making it through the Security check line with no problems (nothing can slow you down more than being “randomly” chosen for a full search).  There were two lines, one that traversed back and forth and the other for flight personnel.  Just as the person ahead of him was directed into the maze, the gatekeeper closed off that path and let David be the first person to pass through the fast-path route through security.  As he said, “that was cool!”

David also mentioned that he likes to request MBO’s for meeting interesting people on the plane.  I tried that out on a business trip back from Washington DC, and after a gentleman offered to trade seats with a young lady sitting next to me so she could sit with her friend, he turned out to be a buyer that I had not seen at the book market.  I was able to give him some information, which will result in a sale.  That’s how Benevolent Outcomes work.  It is so much fun to see how your Guardian Angel makes these things happen!

My wife and I went to a conference in Mt. Shasta, California—a really beautiful place.  On our way back to the Sacramento Airport, I requested a MBO for a safe and problem free drive.  On the car radio, there was a news bulletin that the California Highway Patrol was getting tough on Interstate 5 and would be ticketing anyone barely over the speed limit.  As we were driving along, I had passed several slower moving cars when an oversized pickup came up behind me.  I decided to let him pass, although there was still another car to pass ahead of me. As he passed, I started to move out again to pass the car when suddenly out of the bushes in the median roared a CHIP’s patrol car with lights blinking. I jumped back in line and watched as the pulled over the pickup.  That could have been me.  I have found over time that after requesting a MBO for a drive, the highway patrol cars are either turning off, going the other direction, or have just pulled someone over as I pass by.

One time I rented a car in Nice, France for the 20-minute drive to Cannes on a freeway.  Naturally I requested a MBO for the drive.  A few minutes into the drive a small car passed by me at a speed of approximately 90 miles an hour.  About 100 yards up the road, he tried to weave in and out of traffic, lost control, spun out and bounced off the guardrail ending up straddled across two of the three lanes of traffic.  Had I been five seconds earlier, I would have been in danger of being involved.  I was able to slow down and creep by the car on the far right lane.

Jean from Ontario, Canada emailed to tell me she was in Seattle on vacation.  She was exploring the city via their “excellent” bus service.  She asked for a Benevolent Outcome for her ride downtown.  As the driver approached his stop in front of the Seattle Center, home of the Space Needle, a parcel delivery truck suddenly stopped in front of him.  The bus driver had been looking at the bus stop to see if any passengers were waiting.  “Something” told him to look ahead, and he did, bringing the bus safely to a stop within inches of the truck.  No one was injured, and Jean was able to joke with the driver about all the paper work he had just avoided!

Perhaps you wish to share a taxi with someone to cut down on costs.  The Milan, Italy airport is a long drive outside the city, so I checked with the hotel concierge to see if there was anyone else that had ordered a taxi for the very early drive to the airport.  He had no one scheduled at 5:00 am in the morning, so I requested a MBO for someone to share my taxi.  The next morning when I checked out of the hotel there were no people in sight, so I was resigned to paying for an expensive taxi, when in walked five or six doctors from the Mayo Clinic who had been in Milan for a cancer conference.  They had hired a mini-bus to take them to the airport and invited me to join them, at no charge!

You can request a Benevolent Outcome that your visit with your family or acquaintances be cordial and pleasant.  Just say, “I ask that during the time I am at (name the location) that my experience be delightful.  Thank you.  This may seem like you’re asking a lot in some instances, but REQUEST THE IMPOSSIBLE!

Under this category comes family members or people you know will be at the party or reunion with which you have had a difficult time.  The reasons could include alcoholism, drug use, or you have had a difficult relationship with them in the past.  I suggest saying something like, “I ask that any and all beings come to the assistance of (name) so that they remain sober and pleasant during the time I’m there, and that they receive assistance in overcoming their problem.”  This is a “Living Prayer” that you can say for other people.  Change the wording to fit your circumstances.   Or you can say, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for having a pleasant relationship with (name) during the time I am with them.”  Again, change the wording to fit your particular circumstances.

If you are worried about you and/or your children’s safety while in the presence of someone whom you know to be physically, mentally, or sexually abusive, then say,  “I ask that my safety and that the safety of my children be guaranteed now and in the future in a way that is Benevolent to us all.”  This can also be said if you are currently in a relationship where you are fearful for the same reasons.

If your job involves working during the Holiday period, then you can request Benevolent Outcomes that you will be safe at work each day, that your commissions will be higher than you hope for or expect, and that your time at work be pleasant with your fellow employees and customers. As an example say, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome that my commissions be higher than I can expect or hope for.  Thank you.”  Don’t limit yourself to asking for a specific amount.  You might be asking for too low an amount!  That also goes for requesting a Benevolent Outcome for your annual Bonus.  If you must work to late at night, request a Benevolent Outcome for your walk to your car or bus or train stop.

There is what I call the  “Radiant Effect” when you make these requests.  Many of these requests will be benevolent for all of those around you, such as when you travel. Other people are affected by your request for safety in driving or flying.  If there are people in your car or on the bus, train, or airplane, they will travel in safety too.  When you request a Benevolent Outcome or say a Living Prayer for a pleasant time with someone who has caused everyone problems it has a Radiant Effect.   When you request Benevolent Outcomes for yourself, it also affects others who are present at the dinner, party, or reunion with you.  It makes for a much more pleasant time for everyone!  These simple requests can lower your stress and make your family’s holiday much more congenial and joyful!

Have a Most Benevolent Holiday period this year!

Benevolent Outcomes Blog 1-16-10


    The Gentle Way Books

    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.

Hi everyone and welcome to this third edition of my continuing blogs about a simple, yet powerful spiritual tool you can use every single day to make your life less stressful, less fearful, and much more enjoyable!  You accomplish this by simply requesting Benevolent Outcomes each day for the mundane things like driving to work each day, for more important things like a business meeting or for having a good day earning tips or making retail sales, to the really important things in your life like requesting the PERFECT JOB for you, the PERFECT HOME for you, and the PERFECT MATE for you.   You can read two sample chapters of my book on my website

This blog covers my trip to Cannes, France from London in October on a business trip I take two times a year for a world TV and DVD market, as I do international film and TV program distribution.   It will show you how often you can request Most Benevolent Outcomes (MBO’s) for all sorts of circumstances.

I’ll start at the first, with my flight from London’s Heathrow Airport on KLM with a change of planes in Amsterdam.  I made the mistake of forgetting to ask for a Benevolent Outcome for going through security and was stopped by a security guy and asked to put my roller bag in the metal form to see if it fit.  The wheels made it too long by about one inch or less, and he made me run back to check the bag in at KLM;  I knew I had a problem because of the combined weight of the two checked bags was at the maximum allowed, even though I was traveling business class.

They said I was at my limit and were going to charge me 130 GBP (about $200) overage.  My only option was to run downstairs (along with my roller bag and briefcase) to a store at the far end of the terminal and buy a cloth bag to throw everything into.  Naturally by now I said, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for buying the bag and resolving this problem, thank you!”.  I bought the cheapest bag they had which was 15 GBP (about $24) and ran back upstairs and started transferring virtually everything in the bag over to the cloth bag.  I then attempted to check the small roller bag and it weighed a total of 4 kilos (8.8 pounds).  The supervisor said that they would have given me 2 kilos, but since it was 4 they were going to charge me 50 GBP ($80) for the overage.  I started taking literally everything out of the bag including tissues and putting it on the floor next to the bag.  The two supervisors were called away and the lady at the counter told me to quickly give her the bag before they returned and she checked it.  That was the Benevolent Outcome to that problem!

Next back to the security line and of course I requested a MBO.  The guy who had made me return to the airline counter let me up to the front of the line, even though he said KLM had not paid for “fast track.”  I made the flight with time to spare and had a pleasant chat with a lady to Amsterdam (naturally I requested a MBO for someone interesting to talk to).  I had a long layover in Amsterdam before taking the flight to Nice, which I spent in a KLM lounge with free drinks and food.

I had requested a MBO for my bags to come out quickly in Nice and they did come out in plenty of time to make the bus to Cannes, which was filled with people going to the TV market.  I had requested a MBO to sit next to someone interesting, and I wound up sitting next to the British chap I had sat next to on the plane from London to Nice last March!  We still may do some business.  He even dragged one of my bags to my hotel, as he was traveling very light (what a great MBO!).  I showed him where to pick up his badge on our way, as he did not have his yet, and I was able to pick up my Guide book with everyone listed who was attending the market; this meant I did not have to return to pick it up, a very nice MBO!

One problem I had before commencing my trip was that when the head of the New York Reed Midem office had left in May or June, the new people denied giving me a “Platinum” card which allowed me to have meetings in the VIP Club.  After experiencing congestive heart failure (and a MBO of a full recovery) in 2006, my doctor said he didn’t want me to have the stress of having a booth or “stand” as they’re called in Europe.  I decided I could use the Buyers Club if needed, but requested a MBO when I twice emailed the head of the TV department at Reed Midem requesting the Platinum card.  I never received a response from her, so as I TRUST MBO’s to work PERFECTLY, I knew the Buyers Club would be best, and it was.  I met several buyers there that were not on my list of 60 appointments I had for the 4 days of the market and we had meetings either when there were no-shows for appointments, or in the few remaining times I had left.  Needless to say I was exhausted each night, as I didn’t leave until about 7:00 pm.  I did reconnect with the two young ladies from Canada I mentioned in my weekly newsletter last year at the Buyers Club and they’re still requesting MBO’s.

Monday night I was invited to a buffet dinner at the Majestic Hotel Beach and requested an MBO for someone to talk to.  I met an interesting gentleman by the name of Julius who does the PR for the World Music Awards each year in Monaco.   He says I should be drinking a glass of water each day with cayenne pepper, so I’ll have to investigate that.

I shipped a box weighing 17 kilos to Frankfurt, so I would not have to pay 10 Euros ($14.70) per kilo overage on Lufthansa.  This proved to be a MBO, as I had to roll three bags to my hotel in Frankfurt from the train station.  More on that in the next blog.

I did a 45 minute walk each morning after the Cannes Market finished all the way from my hotel to the end of the sea wall at the “new port” as they call it and back.  I walked along the Croisette before sunrise, but still daylight.  It was interesting to see all the big hotels that line the Cannes beach, but also the cruise ships that lie off shore and all the people preparing the restaurants that sit directly on the beach for the day.  I requested a MBO each morning for my walk to be interesting and it varied each day.

Much work and deliveries happens, with the sidewalk washed each morning by the “city jet” crew with a small water truck that went down the sidewalk with them, the garbage men picking up the trash in the bins that line the sidewalk, the crew building a large temporary structure on the beach, probably for a large party for the upcoming Duty Free Market the following week, walkers, joggers, and even a homeless man that sleeps against the seawall I walk on top of heading for the huge yachts at the end of the wall.  He’s a real character that feeds the birds and somehow fixes what appears to be tea, in a glass cup and saucer.  I said “bonjour” to him each day and he cackled a “bonjour” back to me.  He had clothes and lots of other things spread out on the huge boulders that lie against the walkway below the sea wall. More about him in the next blog.

Until then, have a Most Benevolent Week, and a Most Benevolent Thanksgiving!
