SAVING A CHILD’S LIFE
Luzmarie writes: I am a teacher in Houston, Texas and have been teaching for 23 years. One morning, I asked for a Most Benevolent Outcome that I would see the Creator’s power in my life and that I would be a vessel for His work. It was a time when I really wished to feel close to the universe (as I do now).
That day, I went to the office to make copies for my class and walked through the pre-kinder hallway-- something I rarely do because my classroom is outside in a portable building. I stopped by the water fountain, when I saw a teacher aid running down the hallway. When I asked her what was wrong, she just kept shaking her hands and saying " Oh no, Ms.A, Oh no.."
For some reason, I ran into Ms. M's room and I asked what was wrong. There were three adults in the room: The teacher, an aid and an office secretary. They were crying and saying that they had tried everything. In the room was a three year old boy who was limp and was turning blue. They said that he was not breathing.
I said, " Give him to me!"
I don’t know how I did it, but I stood behind him, threw him in the air and caught him on his way down. I was able to give him the Heimlich Maneuver and he threw up his cereal. I don't know why, but I kept on doing the maneuver, and he finally threw up a large purple grape! At last he could breathe!
I felt so grateful and blessed and I feel that I was chosen to be a vessel for his work and to see his power in my life. To this day I continue to ask for MBO's and truly believe that they work! Later that day, the principal came to my room and thanked me for saving Eli and her from having to make the worst phone call someone could make to a parent.
I hope that my testimonial about MBO's brings a smile to your face, as Eli's life was saved and he now attends kindergarten :) I thank YOU for The Gentle Way, for Theo and for the bond I now have with my Guardian Angel!
Kenda writes: Hi again. So I finished reading your book and had a question that wasn't covered: can one put time limits on one's benevolent outcomes? For example, can I say something like "I request a benevolent outcome to find a competent and good new physician for me by tomorrow?”
I asked my Guardian Angel (GA) Theo in meditation this question: Theo, can you put time limits on MBO requests and if so how effective can they be?
As you guessed Tom, it all depends upon the MBO request, the soul contract, and what is being requested. If it is assistance that may well be needed immediately, then certainly the GA will pull strings shall we say for that MBO request. If it is something general like the perfect job, home, or mate, then it will take as long as it will so that it will fulfill the request of the person who requested it.
And we must not forget soul contracts, as there are times when someone wish something to happen, yet their soul contract calls for the person to experience something as a learning lesson for them. The MBO does not prevent the event from happening, only the severity. So you see Tom, each MBO request is treated perhaps much differently from another. If there is truly a time limit on the request it is looked at most carefully.Deleah writes: Tom, I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of your ebooks for my nook however I am finding myself at a time in my life when I need MBO's more than ever so I hope you will not mind if I ask you these three questions I have had for a long time now: First of all, should you say an MBO and then forget about it and release it to the angels or should you keep saying the MBO until something happens? Secondly, will MBO's work if you write them in a journal? I saw this somewhere and thought it was a neat idea or do they need to be said too? Thirdly, do you need to direct the MBO to the angels in general or does this cover the angels, archangels as well as your spirit guides, etc.
You only have to say a MBO once, Theo says, but he also says humans are a little fearful (or a lot) and if it makes you feel better to say the MBO multiple times that's ok--same with writing it down. When you say it out loud you are "cocreating with spirit".
I was "inspired" to create just the simple saying you use--which anyone with any belief system can say. He says you can limit yourself somewhat if you direct it to a specific angel. Just make the request and know it instantly reaches where it's supposed to go.
MBO’S FOR DAUGHTER, HUSBAND, TRIP
Peggy writes on Facebook: Said one for daughter having a back operation. She is home now. Not out of the woods yet but doing better every day. Said one for my husband and he said this has been one of the best years he has had. Said one on our trip and had no problems. Every day I say one for all those who want to are in misery or want to ascend including the animals and all on earth they may get whatever they need to survive and enough to share as well. Peace and love.
MBO FOR SHORT TRAIN, DRIVE
Sandy writes: I get up in the morning, say my 3 "affirmations" (from your site), as I've done every day for over 2 years now. I had to drive over to the auto shop, my husband needed to drop off his car to get some work done and he needed a ride back home. I had a meeting with a friend, and it was going to be tight scheduling, so to speak. Here's what happened for me the rest of the day:
#1. I get in my car, say my regular MBO. I'm leading the way over to the auto shop, and I come to this stoplight where we go over a RR crossing. I see the red of the traffic light, and beyond that - the blinking red of the RR gate...indicating a train was coming. I'm like "Oh, rats, just figures, the one morning I'm in a bit of a hurry..." So I quickly say an MBO (and these are the exact words) "I request a most benevolent outcome for this to either be the crew working on the track, or a really short train (exact words); I heard the whistle, and within a minute, the train comes into view. I kid you not - it consisted of an engine, a car, and a caboose. That was IT. I laughed all the way to the shop - and couldn't help but tell my husband - all about MBO's and what had happened (a leap of faith, there).
#2. I drive my husband back home, drop him off and quickly say another MBO for my trip downtown to meet my friend. It's a routine drive, and as I exit the highway and go into the city, I'm expecting there to be a place available where I usually (due to an MBO!) park on the street - free. There wasn't. I thought, I will drive around the block, give someone a chance to leave, and try again. As I was sitting at the red light, waiting to make a left turn out of a one-way street, my attention wandered for just a split second and the light turned green. I slowly pulled out and because of a truck or van parked to my left at that corner, my view was completely blocked and I did not see the older white sedan barreling through a red light at 30 mph or more. It never even slowed, but I slammed my brakes on and he missed me by all of 2 feet. (small meltdown, but over and back to center in less than 30 sec.). I went on and made my final turns, and sure enough, a car was just pulling out and there I was with my parking place.
#3. Later that day, my husband was trying to call about his car, and kept getting put on hold. He tried waiting twice, to no avail. He hung up the phone and was getting really "agitated". It was 3:55 pm. I said out loud (because hey, my cover was blown - about MBO's - from this morning!) "I request a most benevolent outcome that the auto shop calls here in the next 5 minutes to let us know about the car." They called 3 minutes later.
And if you think all of that is great (which I do!), in the following week and a half I have told more people about MBO's than in nearly the 2 years since I found out about them. And I'm hearing back from those people that they are using them!
I truly feel like I've raised my own vibration once again - and simply wish to thank you for your efforts and both of US - for having "set it up" to meet each other way back whenever...:-) Thank you Tom.
MBO FOR AIR TICKET CONFIRMATION
Subir in New Delhi writes on Facebook: I would like to share a very recent MBO that happened with me. There occurred some problem with flight ticket issuance of my Aunt; she asked me for help and even I was not able to get the same confirmed. Day before yesterday, I made a MBO and went to sleep; to my surprise when I awoke I received the confirmation of the ticket from the airline in my mailbox in the morning. I thanked my guardian angle for his help. I will be always be thankful to you for connecting me with my guardian angle.
MBO FOR BOOK DELIVERY
Lee writes: Hi, Tom! Once again, thank you for making my life easier! I ordered a book from Amazon.com on May 3rd. It was due to ship the week of May 17 to 22. We planned a short notice trip and would not be home until after the book was delivered. I really wanted to read this book and it was not available on Kindle yet. When I found out about the trip I said an MBO that I receive the book by May 12, before we were leaving. I got an e-mail saying I would receive the book by May 14. I didn't worry, just said if I am to receive it in time then I will. Today, May 9, I got up and was reading my e-mails and had one from Amazon.com. Guess what? My book has shipped and I should have it by May 11! Thank you!
MBO FOR LOST GIFT CARDS
Laurie writes: My work gives movie tickets, Starbucks, and gas cards as incentives. I normally save up these cards in a plastic baggie in my purse, and a couple of times a year will treat myself when I am having a tight money week. Well I used one of the gas cards and remember putting them back in the bottom of my purse. A few days later I decided to treat myself to a Starbucks, but couldn't find my gift cards. I was upset, but did say an MBO for the return of the gift cards. Then I felt bad and said another MBO stating that who ever had found the gift cards at the gas station, I hoped they really needed them. A few days later I went to visit my mother and low and behold she had found the baggie of gift cards on the floor. It must have fallen out of my purse. Needless to say I was very happy to have them returned to me after I had assumed they had been found and used up.
LOTS OF MBO’S FOR MOVE
Beverly writes: I have just been in the process of selling my main home in the UK and buying another that was suitable for Mike & I plus our daughter and 2 teenage grandchildren. We will only be back there for 2 weeks every 3 months. I said an MBO for the whole thing and for individual processes as they came along.
First we found a buyer within 2 weeks, in fact we found 2 buyers that meant we achieved 35K above the asking price. The buyers had nothing to sell and the house we are buying, their sellers are going into rented accommodation. We put an offer on the 1st house we viewed as it was a perfect match for us. No bedroom walls were touching and a down stairs bedroom large enough for a sitting area for our daughter with her own patio. 4 bathrooms which is a miracle!
I traveled to the UK last week to move out of the main house and put my furniture into storage until we can move into the new house. The mover let me down at the last minute, which meant it all could have fallen down. I said an MBO and I found a better mover who could do it a day earlier and as I forgot about cleaning the property had a day over to arrange this! Also on the day I would have moved it rained all day so glad it all changed.
Then on the moving day, the buyers solicitor emailed for a copy of the original planning application for our extension. As they already had the completion certificate I had boxed it and thought it was long gone. I was very frustrated as have bent over backwards to accommodate the buyers. The movers heard me telling my friend who was helping me and it transpired the box with the papers in it were still in the garage as they could not fit in the container! So more MBO's than I can put down happened and on the way home a very kind friend upgraded me to Business Class which as it is OTC in Houston was another MIRACLE!
Trust you're doing great and much love to you and yours.
DISNEY TRIP MBO’S
Lee writes: Just returned from a 4 day trip to Disney filled with short lines, great weather, no traffic and nice people all around. All thanks to MBO's before I left! One thing I forgot was to say an MBO for the room we has the night before going on Disney property. All I can say is yuck! Too late to change the room so I said an MBO for the least effects and we were out of there the next day early! How I forgot that one step of the trip I'll never know! What a difference an MBO makes!! Thanks, Tom!
MBO FOR JOB
Chrissy in Brisbane Australia writes: I have been saying mbo’s for several weeks because my time at the project I work at was coming to an end – my last day on that part of the project being 30th April. Weeks ago I started saying an mbo for a job closer to home, on the North side of the city and without having my pay reduced. Construction companies pay better than private enterprise for office staff.
Every so often I will either add something to the mbo that I think would be better or remove something I thought I didn’t need. I know that we don’t have to say our mbo’s more than once, but I get myself into a routine and they make me feel better in myself when I say them on a regular basis.
There is a job with a colleague with whom I used to work that I would like and it is with the same company. Recently, I changed the MBO to include that job.
Of course, my Angels had other ideas – so long story short – last Thursday I was offered an administration job, still on the project but in another area and at another site office. I started this week and will take someone's place who is leaving this week and I will have to learn new software but find that a challenge.
I have been thinking about the original MBO and realized that the Angels have given me what I initially asked for – north side of the city, closer to home, without a drop in pay. How could I doubt that they would come through? I got exactly what I asked for. What I now realize that I didn’t include was permanency as this job is for another 3 months or slightly longer.
Amazing how they give us what we ask for – we just have to be specific or in my case, more specific.
BP’S, MBO’S FOR BOY SCOUT TRIPS
Marian writes: I say several BPs (safe trip, perfect weather, great time, etc.) and ask my son and grandson to indulge me and say MBOs for Boy Scout activities. The troop attended canoe races weekend before last. They all won 1st or 2nd in their events, had a great time and a safe trip.
MBO FOR CROSSING BORDER
Koro writes: Said an MBO for crossing the border from the usa to canada, never got asked even one question just swiped my passport and sent me on my way,what a happy day for me.
MBO FOR DRIVE TO WORK
Sussana writes on Facebook: I've been meaning to write about my MBO’s! I do the one about driving, daily, "I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for a smooth and safe drive home (or to work) with any stops in between, thank you!" I immediately take a deep breath, and feel the gratitude. One day last year on my way home on a three-lane highway; a Pontiac passed me going at least 10 miles over the speed limit, weaving in and out. I sent up a quick 'thank you' as he went on his crazy way. About 10 miles after that incident, I came upon the Pontiac and another vehicle, which had been in an accident!! I sent up another 'thank you for keeping me safe.' I like doing this simple daily request, because it keeps me in practice. Once I reach my destination, I say "Thank You for getting me (here) safe." I love this idea of MBO’s, it puts me into a fantastic, pleasant vibration.
MBO FOR GOOD WEEK
Kate writes on Facebook: Tom, I did a general MBO for the week. The sun came out when I went for a walk after a dismal week of cold wind and gray. It went back to cloudy within a minute of me getting back from the walk. That is not an exciting one, but it made me take notice. I also found myself face to face with Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont yesterday in our coop market. I turned around and there he was next to me, his face only inches away, so I had the opportunity to thank him for being practically the only "sane" voice in Congress!
MBO AT GAS STATION
Cary writes on Facebook: Tom, every time I go to the gas pump, I ask for a MBO for a short line. Three weeks in a row I have pulled in with no one in front of me. Next time, it's going to be an MBO for a healthy shopping cart at the grocery store! I didn't ask! Got a flat tire on the cart and jerked my back out. I wasn't in tune.
MBO FOR TWO PARKING SPOTS
Robin writes: You asked about a MBO, well I did one for a parking spot for a girl at work and me. We both drive a work van so parking by each other is hard let alone just finding one spot. When we pulled up to the place there was 2 parking spot side by side. That has never happened the past 4 yrs we have been going there. Thanks!
MBO FOR MEDICAL BILL
Ron writes: Here's another MBO Story for you Tom. My wife had to go into the hospital for some testing and we don't have insurance for her now so we got a bill for $3,000.00. She called the hospital to get financial help and they told my wife that they would take her info, name, phone number and address and get back in thirty days. After she talked with them she made an MBO for having the medical bill paid in full. Thirty days later she got the bill again with a letter stating that the balance had been adjusted to 0. How does it get any better than this? Thanks Tom for teaching us how to make MBO's and I know that they work too. By the way my bingo players are having fun too making their MBO's to win playing bingo.
MBO FOR LEGAL DECISION
Emily writes: Thank you for all you do to get us the information you give us.
I have been reading your newsletters regularly for a while now--I think it might be about a year. I have also been using the MBO requests as much as I remembered to. Of course I am getting better at it...over the last few months I have been making a practice of almost using it daily.
There has been one particular issue in my life in which I have said MANY MBO's for. It was a legal matter that had been going on for almost three years. Whenever the thought came to me I would say an MBO for that legal matter. About a month ago I asked Carol (a great friend) to also say an MBO on my behalf for this legal matter to be solved. The case went to trial on April 16 & 17, and on April 18th the judge ruled in my favor. This ruling is a major relief on my life as well as a wonderful blessing.
Needless to say, I now don't leave the house without saying an MBO for anything and everything I may encounter while I am out and about. Thank you again for all you share and teach us.
ANOTHER MBO FOR LEGAL MATTER
Lee writes: My husband has been going through a very complicated lawsuit concerning an auto accident. His frustration level has been mounting by the day. Finally, yesterday I quietly said an MBO for him (he does not like any of that "wooky-wooky" stuff) that the suit would wrap up soon and he would get more money than he expected. Lo and behold, the lawyer called him today and told him that he would be getting more money than he expected (the lawyers exact words!). The suit is not wrapped up yet but we are a lot closer to completion. Thank you for your beautiful spirit and gift to all of us.
MBO’S FOR DRIVE TO CANADA
Jo, who’s new to requesting MBO’s writes: I did notice some great blessings from my MBO's immediately like when I asked for a benevolent drive home from Texas to Canada, drivers were literally moving out of my way and then other nice things were happening too like doors being opened when I had my hands full so I am seeing some wonderful results and many thanks again.
MBO CHANGEUP FOR WORKLOAD
Ruth writes: For the first time ever, I had to ask for a reversal. I had asked that I have a benevolent outcome for my work because I was tired and had worked for two weeks in a row. Well, I had a very peaceful week (the answer). However, I realized quite suddenly that I was not making any money (work on commission). So then, I asked again that I have a benevolent outcome for my work and my commissions.
Actually, they both worked and apparently the angels knew that I needed a break for a few days. Many thanks for introducing me to MBO's.
MBO’S TO AND FROM AIRPORT
Laurie writes: Here's a recent MBO success story for you.
I agreed to pick up a friend at the airport. I was worried about meeting her on time since her plane was delayed by bad weather. I tracked the flight on the airline's website, and the arrival time got later and later into the night. I said some BPs, and at last the schedule firmed up. My friend was in the air and on her way.
Unfortunately for me, I now had to drive on I-95 very late at night. I'm really uncomfortable about driving in the dark, and even more nervous about driving on I-95, which has gotten to be an extremely congested highway even at the best of times.
Well, I must have said about 20 MBOs for safe driving conditions. All of them were granted. Traffic was light, there were very few cars around me as I drove to and from the airport, and there was only one nutty speed demon who came out of nowhere and swerved around me. Whew! I also requested another set of MBOs to meet my friend on time at the airport. We had agreed that she would come out to the curb at Arrivals. I didn't want to be too early, or too late. I requested an MBO to coordinate meeting her perfectly. Well, you can guess what happened! She came out of the door no more than 30 seconds after I pulled up at the curb. She remarked: Wow, that's perfect timing. I replied: Thank the angels!
MBO TO MAKE IT TO GAS STATION
Queenie writes: My great grandson, who I started using MBO's called me Friday the 13th; he had run out of gas and his car stopped on him. He asked me to come take him to get some gas. On my way to him, he called and said he did 3 MBO's and a sign I taught him to use for protection, and the car started and he was able to make it to the gas station. He also got a promotion and a raise on his job using MBO's.
MBO FOR WASHING MACHINE
Anon writes from Australia: Last year in November I moved in with my fiance ahead of our wedding in December. Around December time our washing machine started making weird sounds and would at times not complete a wash cycle. Seeing that we might need to get it fixed or buy a new one altogether, I said a MBO plus wrote it down in my MBO journal a few days later (sometimes when I feel my words won't be or are not effective enough to bring about a MBO quickly, I write it down as well for back up). I said out loud and wrote that we be able to get the washing machine fixed at a cheap price or be able to somehow afford a new washing machine - not knowing where the money would come from since we had spent a lot of our saving on our wedding which was to come in a few weeks and just didn't have any spare cash.
Well a day or two later after writing the MBO we received a £250 cheque in the mail from my fiance's grandparents as an early wedding present. I remember being a little confused when we received the cheque as it was sent before I wrote down the MBO and it was the exact amount we needed to buy a new washing machine plus delivery charges. I guess the MBO I had said out loud earlier on still worked despite me not having any feeling or strong belief that it would come about. It was once I had written it down that I was more confident it would be taken care of by the angels.
So my question to you Tom is, does it really matter if you believe the MBO requested would be taken care of for it to work? As in my case, said the MBO but didn't put much faith in it till I wrote it down. But wouldn't know how to explain the cheque being written and sent a day or two before writing my MBO down unless it was all a coincidence!
You just have to say the request. When I began requesting MBO’s I had no idea if it would work, and was probably a little skeptical, as I had tried many modalities that did not work. But I discovered they worked PERFECTLY, and with each one I requested I became more confident.
MBO FOR CLEAR BREATHING
Hi Tom, this was my 90 year old brother who is actually doing very well with golf, etc. I thought you would like to see the MBO's at work.
Hi Jim. Tuesday evening I went into a chill that lasted over two hours, then came 102ºF+ temperature and blood pressure at 199. The immediate decision was that I had become dehydrated on the golf course, and that brought it all on. The solution was to go on antibiotics, take some aspirin and drink lots of fluids. The next day I felt much better, but far from normal. And here's the MBO part. We went to bed about 11:00 Wednesday night, but I kept both of us awake with the noise of my gurgling breathing. Leslie was about to leave the room when I suddenly thought to say an MBO to clear my breath. My very NEXT breath was absolutely clear, and it has stayed that way ever since. It happened so fast, I was actually startled.
Just wanted to tell you about it. Guess I better go get some more GatorAid.
I love this story, because it does demonstrate that we’re never too old to learn something new!
MBO FOR PACKAGE DELIVERY
Janet writes: Hi Tom, I have a nice story for you. Last week I decided to mail a small parcel to my son. It wasn't tiny, the box was a cube of around ten inches or so on all sides. I live in Toronto, Canada, and my son lives in Bend, Oregon.
The postal outlet told me that if I paid an extra $20, the parcel could be there within three business days. I didn't want to spend so much money, and the contents were nice, but not important that he get the parcel quickly. So I opted for the cheapest delivery selection, which was around two weeks from the time of pick-up. I was there after the daily pick-up on Friday afternoon, so it wouldn't have been picked up until Monday. As I was leaving the outlet, I made an MBO for the safe and quick delivery of the package to my son.
You can imagine my surprise - and delight - when my son informed me that the parcel had arrived YESTERDAY - within the three business days of the expensive option I had shunned. Even better, the subject line of the message he sent to tell me about it said "Angel Wings" - which referred to the fact that I had sent him a small porcelain angel that I had made in a ceramics class last year. I haven't told him about MBOs, so he didn't know his message actually had a double meaning!
Thanks again Tom, for all these wonderful "embroideries" onto regular, ordinary life!
MBO FOR DANCING & SCHOOL BOILERS
Nancy writes: I always say an MBO for Tim and I as we travel Thursday nights to our dance class and to do our errands later. We are taking West Coast Swing, as well as ballroom dancing. WCS is lots harder than ballroom for us, so I always say an MBO for having fun and learning our new steps. Well, during our last class Tim was having trouble with a new move we were learning, and was getting really frustrated. I thought he was going to blow a gasket! We are not dance wizards, and sometimes the steps are hard. The move involved a double-spin for me, and it kept throwing me off balance. Somehow Tim didn’t explode, but he was unhappy that he hadn’t learned the move. I reminded him of how hard hustle was for us initially, and how now it’s one of our better dances, and told him he’d get it tomorrow. Meanwhile, I started trying to reverse engineer it in my mind. When we practiced the next day, I was able to help him continue to move me past him as he spun me, and he got it. He had been reversing my motion, which was what was throwing me off. It was wonderful to see him get it, and feel better about the dance. No, he didn’t get the move during the class, but one day later is pretty good!
I have a request for the MBO community. Please say the following MBO for my school. Like all schools, it is having financial problems. We need to replace to ancient boilers. Our situation is different because we are a private Hebrew Day School, but we serve the community too, and our students are happy and learn a lot. I’m not even Jewish, but I love this school and the children we teach. I know that there are people in the community who could offer great financial support...so.....
“I ask any and all beings for a Most Benevolent Outcome for the Hebrew Academy’s financial problems, including the immediate need for new boilers, to be solved better than can be expected or anticipated, and I thank you so much!”
Thanks to everyone in advance who is willing to say this MBO to help us out!!!!
Have a Most Benevolent month everyone!
