A Guest Column For You

I have been writing about Benevolent Magic, which I've channeled about extensively for twelve, fifteen years now. I believe in its value because of its benevolent impact on my life and the lives of many others.
My friend Tom Moore has come up with his own version of Benevolent Magic that I sometimes think of as Shorthand Benevolent Magic. I've decided to share his article that he wrote in 2002 here on this blog in case you may be interested to read about it. Tom will be updating his work on this subject in his own web site and when he has that on line I'll put a link here for it.
Goodlife to you all.


From your reading and studies, you understand that we are all Creators-in-training. We are supposed to be learning how to create from the ground up, with the third dimension as our training ground. Now we are entering a new phase of learning how to benevolently create events. Robert Shapiro, in his latest book, THE COUNCIL OF CREATORS from the Explorer Race series, channels, "Seek out more benevolent experiences for yourself. Seek out more benevolent companions and experiences of benevolence for you and your companion or your family or your people."
Sometime around six or seven years ago, I kept noticing that benevolent
outcomes were mentioned in channelings. As I understood that words have great power, I started to say out loud that I requested a Benevolent Outcome for almost every physical event that was occurring in my life. Amazingly, everything that happened turned out for the best-including those difficult" lessons in life" that we have contracted to experience in each of our lives.
So before we go too far, I would like for you to say, out loud (you can
whisper if it would disturb someone or bring unwanted attention to you), "I request the MOST BENEVOLENT OUTCOME from reading this article." Did you say it? Humor me and give it a try. Now that you have, does this sound a little "weird" or "funny"? We'll discuss this later.
Now the title of this article mentioned a tool for your toolbox. I discovered that there are a number of metaphysical tools available to help us through these earth lives. You just have to make use of them.
As an example, back in 1968 I was operating a ski club for single adults as a business. One day, on the front page of the local newspaper, an astrologer predicted that the Dallas Cowboys would not make it to the Superbowl that year, but would go the following year. At the end of the American football season, the astrologer was proven correct. I booked 300 airline seats a year in advance to Miami and became the first tour operator in Dallas to ever run a trip to the Superbowl for Dallas fans. I started scheduling all of my ski club meetings and parties to coincide with benevolent (there's that word again) astrological aspects. This was highly successful, the club grew to be the largest in the region, and many couples met and eventually married. I also had to open a travel agency, and it eventually became one of the largest wholesale tour companies in the Southwest USA, selling tours through 3,000 travel agents nationwide. This success inspired me to search out other metaphysical tools to use.
Another tool available is numerology. If you haven't done so, buy a book and figure your own charts. It will contribute to understanding who you are.
I began recording my dreams on a daily basis in 1979. Recording dreams each morning in my dream journal has been a major tool in my toolbox. Over the years, since 1979, I have recorded thousands of dreams, with many of them precognitive. My dreams also guided me to change careers. It's the closest you will get in this life to your immortal self. I highly recommend it.
I have also learned to dowse. Many dowsers can find, besides water, lost items and missing persons, do map dowsing, and much more.
Again, it's another tool for your toolbox.
Which brings us to Benevolent Outcomes. What an important tool! This will allow you to learn and experiment with co-creation while on the physical level. It will give you immediate feedback-very important since we are never sure whether we are really manifesting something or not.
As an easy-to-do exercise, let's say you're going to a shopping center, or to dinner or a movie at a location where it is typically hard to find a parking space. You say (well before you arrive), "I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for finding a parking space near (say the place you're going to.)" Now I have had some friends say, "But Tom, I use my 'parking angel' already." Here is why I think requesting a
Benevolent Outcome is better. If you just request the nearest parking
space, your angel or guide will comply, but that might not be the most benevolent place to have your car parked. Someone could open their car door too hard and "ding" the side of your car. Or someone might back into your car and dent it. By being too close you might miss that old friend of yours you haven't seen in ages, or the sale you would have not known about if you had not walked past it on the way to your destination. But Benevolent Outcomes work perfectly!
Recently on a visit back to Sedona, our friends and we drove to the "uptown" section of Sedona for Mexican food. For many of you who have visited Sedona, you know that the parking there can be quite problematic because of the many gift shops and restaurants. I requested a Most Benevolent Outcome when we left the hotel. Every single parking space on both sides of the street was taken until we reached the restaurant. There, right at the front entrance, was "our" parking space. Again, this was immediate feedback that we were creating!
Two of our friends, Joy and Bob, recently drove to Las Vegas from Dallas. They requested a Most Benevolent Outcome for their drive, hotel, and parking. Each time they passed a police radar speed trap, they were behind trucks and other traffic that had slowed them down. In Las Vegas, they were given exactly the floor of the hotel they wanted and a view of the "strip." And they found the perfect parking space where their car would not be "dinged."
Joy and Bob also just purchased a home in the country. Every time they have closed on a house in the past, they experienced problems at the closing-mistakes in the paperwork, etc. This time they requested a Most Benevolent Outcome for the closing and "sailed through" the process with no problems.
Some more examples: My son, two friends and I flew to Salt Lake City, Utah and camped all the way up to Yellowstone National Park and back. What a wonderful trip! I knew that our flight back to Dallas was oversold, so I volunteered the four of us to be "bumped." Typically, the airline compensates with free tickets, which I thought we could use the next year. Naturally I requested a Most Benevolent Outcome. They did not need our seats, but for volunteering, they gave us four First Class seats. My son, his friend and dad had never flown first class, so this was the treat of their lives. The following summer our schedules did not coincide and we were not able to return-therefore truly a Benevolent Outcome!
Another example: My family and I took a cruise from Houston. My daughter and I played bingo the first day, but other activities kept us from playing again until the last day of the cruise. I had requested a Most Benevolent Outcome the first day, but we did not win anything, and so I requested again on the last day. The "coverall" pot had not been won during the week, and on the last day they play until someone wins it. I won half of an $8,400 pot along with a young man that was sitting right next to me. I'm sure people thought he was my son. What synchronicity! It paid for our cruise, as we had already been given 50% off, thanks to a Benevolent Outcome on the same cruise the year before.
My son returned from an all-night high school graduation party with a Sony Play Station he had won in a drawing. Although it was the second largest prize, it was the one he really wanted. He explained to me that he had requested a Benevolent Outcome "two times." Once was really enough.
Another couple in our metaphysical group have a very 'high end' painting contracting business. With the economy in Dallas and the rest of the USA in retreat, things have been tough for them. Billy hasn't gotten used to requesting Benevolent Outcomes yet, but his wife, Jo, and I both requested a Most Benevolent Outcome for their business to pick up. Just in the past week they picked up a 20,000 square foot house, which will take a year to complete; he is about to sign a contract on a second large house, and will probably be awarded a third contract in the next two weeks.
Recently, I added to my request. I requested a Most Benevolent Outcome for my sales trip to a TV market in Budapest, but I added, "and may it produce better results than I expect or hope for." I was invited to a meeting where a Russian/Ukrainian TV network agreed to become a co-production partner in a movie to be filmed in Siberia, and our company will be the worldwide distributor. I flew from Budapest to Athens and requested the same thing. Not only was my business successful there, but also my colleague in Athens asked me to help him sell his TV productions on historical Greece.
Does requesting Benevolent Outcomes sound strange, or weird, or "funny?" It does take a little getting used to. Some of my metaphysically oriented friends have slowly adopted using the request, especially as they see more and more positive results. But it has been difficult for others. I can't help that. I did not "invent" the words. I just started using what the channeling entities used as part of their language. When I started using this statement, there was very little written about Benevolent Outcomes. More is being written, and it seems that we are using Benevolent Magic.
The request has to be done physically, either verbally or in writing, as we are in a physical world. It seems we are communicating at a super-conscious level with other higher selves to co-create these requests. These Benevolent requests are probably only "training wheels" in our learning to co-create, but it should give all of us a basic understanding of creating benevolent events. You will receive immediate feedback, which will increase your confidence in its use as a tool. I also like to say "thank you" three times when I receive a Benevolent Outcome. It's just nice to acknowledge the assistance you received.
Keep in mind that you must be willing to accept the Benevolent Outcomes. If you request a Benevolent Outcome for a dear one's recovery from an illness or injury, the Benevolent Outcome may be that they transition peacefully. If you ask for a Benevolent Outcome for a job interview, and they choose someone else, you have to accept that there is something better on the way for you.
If you have had a number of successes with the more mundane incidents in your life, it will be much easier to accept the outcomes for those more major events that come along.
Please test this out for yourself. It is a "habit" that is created by repetition.You have to consciously think to use it for some time until it becomes natural. But the potential results will mean an easier life for you, your family, your friends and ultimately all of us. I believe it will contribute to a rise in our vibrational rate. So please email and give me examples of your use of requesting Benevolent Outcomes and send this article to your friends if you like. I'm sure you will have some great events to share with me if you'd care to.

Musical Support

I've been listening to one of my favorite pieces of music. It is called Planetary Unfolding by Michael Stearns.
Way back, many years ago when I was first training for the type of work I'm involved in now I would listen to Planetary Unfolding. Oh it is true that in the beginning I listened to Pachelbel Canon like many other people did who were engaging in benevolent spiritual pursuits but it didn't quite do it for me even though I do find it beautiful and I came across and felt drawn to the tape, that was pre-CD time, the tape of Planetary Unfolding. I bought it and I thought I'd try it and the moment I put the music on I was able to assimilate and relax into the most nurturing energies.
For some years afterwards, after I'd started to Trance Channel, I would for a half hour to forty minutes before hand listen to that music so as to relax and be in a benevolent receptive state before the channeling. Nowadays I do not need to listen to music before channeling but I do it sometimes - listening to Planetary Unfolding just to enjoy that profound energetic experience which I find these days is even more profound.
I'm just passing this along because it has been a benevolent and nurturing source of musical support for me over the years.

Seeing. Now And In The Past.

Lately I've been noticing a great deal of energy activity. I see a lot of lights and shadings. I'll explain.
Very often I'll see a beautiful patch of light in the air. It is originally something I could see with what I would call Subtle Vision - meaning that I would remove my glasses, I wear glasses, and then I would be using my natural vision. Granted maybe not as crystal clear as high definition television but pretty good and things, how can I say - I could see more. Isn't that ironic? Take off your glasses to see more but that's how I originally trained for this.
Now I can see things with my glasses on but I needed to train with them off for a while and originally I would see quick flashes of light - usually a pinpoint of light and then it would be gone and there would be nothing else, just that. Usually it would be white light, then eventually there were other colors.
I recall a time when seeing an unusual shape. It had sort of almost square like or blocky shapes, like a big square on the bottom and then a couple of other squares sticking up from the top - hard to describe in words and at this time I don't have the means to show you a picture here - sorry, I'm not to technical - I'll do the best I can though - and that was sort of a dull green color. I'll tell you the story about that some time but today I want to say that learning how to see with Subtle Vision trained me so that I was able to wear my glasses eventually and still see. I believe I may be able to see more with my glasses off at times but at other times - glasses on - doesn't make any difference.
Nowadays I've been seeing a lot of these patches of light - yes I still see pinpoints but more patches of light and I notice them longer. Sometimes I'm able to observe them at length. They are usually shapes, not what I would call anything that looks like a human being though there was something like that once - I'll tell you that story someday too but I want to keep in the present here. The big difference these days though and for several years now is that when I see these patches of light - beautiful colors usually - blue, purple, sometimes other colors, green - when I see them there is now a wonderful energy that I feel with them, it is really quite spectacular.
I've also been seeing something more frequently lately that is not quite the same - it is like a grayish color, sometimes there seems to be a motion with it. I'm pretty sure I know what that is though there is other possibilities.
The grayish light is something I observed out in the California desert years ago when I used to go out there with two friends. We had places we could go to observe activity in the skies - we might refer to it here as UFO's. One time there one of my friends that I went out with at that time, I will refer to him here as E, began noticing something. Usually he would be looking in one part of the sky and I would be looking in another part but on this one occasion he and I were both looking at the same place and it wasn't the sky at all, it was towards the land in the distance and I started describing what I was seeing.
It was like a superimposition over the landscape of something that looked like a silhouette of human beings although they were in motion - seemingly quite fast. I asked him what he was seeing and he described the same thing. It was like seeing - imagine a - a screen over a screen - the landscape was still there but this sort of pantomime - there was no sound - was present. We decided at the time that it was a second dimensional reality which isn't to say that it was a lesser reality but that was our model for understanding our reality at that time.
That experience may be coloring or creating a bias for me looking at these grayish images which I see in patches and also at times snatches of that same kind of motion and pieces, you might say, of it. Nothing that makes any sense in our world.
I don't feel that benevolent energy from it though so I always do what I've been trained - to emanate a benevolent energy towards it and interact with other Beings to do what I can for those patches of color in the gray to slightly darker color. The energy feels like it needs help so that's what I do.
I cannot say and I don't wish to interpret what it all means at this time but the activity has picked up greatly and I'm just bringing it to your attention at this time because I think there might be those of you who have had experiences like this before as well. I've been approached and asked about it at times in the past from people who wish to have channeled sessions or were experiencing forms of ET or UFO contact that were difficult for them to assimilate and carry on with their lives in ways they would care to. Those are the exceptions. Most people have benevolent forms of encounter or recall them but there are these exceptions.
I don't feel threatened in any way by seeing these grayish images. I do not buy into the idea of evil aliens. I think that's a - something that is mostly disinformation. I grant that there are possibilities to have unpleasant experiences - Contactees have been known to have these - I grant that that's so. In my experience with Contactees however, the vast experience is benevolent.
I'm just providing these few comments for you because I've been telling stories from my past and I will tell more perhaps but I want to also share with you things that I see now. There's a great deal more but I will just share little bits with you from time to time. I wish you all well and hope that these comments will give you something not only to think about but to consider. I will add this one short recollection.
Once when appearing at a conference in Brazil widely attended by people from all over the world, I talked about something I had seen in the skies. It was one of my recollections about UFO's seen or lights seen.
I had a moving experience afterwards sitting in a booth area where people could come after the talks. A young man came up and told me about an experience he had had as a child when an image of light came to their very small town. Many people greeted the light with happiness and it felt wonderful to them but there were a few people that were frightened and those feelings in them were also heightened.
He had suppressed the experience since after the experience was over in the small town, people didn't know what to make of it. Those that had had a good experience cherished the memory. Those that were frightened including this young man's relative - I believe was his Grandmother - had a bad feeling about it and urged him to try to forget about it and he had until I'd given that talk at that time.
He didn't pass any judgement on it but he said that when he saw it it felt wonderful to him but that he had forgotten it and suppressed the memory because of what his Grandmother said. I found that moving at the time because as he was telling the story he was going through the feelings and I could see that on the one hand it was thrilling to him to remember it and he remembered it with fondness and on the other hand it was painful for him to remember it since his Grandmother had been so frightened. I don't know whether to say this was something that was good or bad. It is just something I recall and I'm passing on.
Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Meeting The Weather On Benevolent Ground

Once I remember walking in a park in Southern California with a friend of the time. She was talking to me about something she had attempted to do that I admired very much. She had decided once that she wanted to try something that was identified at the time as exclusively a man's job and that's that she wanted to try - being a Professional Roofer.
I was very impressed with what she had to say about it even though she didn't last on the job very long because it is truly a very difficult job - you have to carry very heavy loads to say nothing of the fact of the sexual harassment she experienced. I remember being very impressed with the fact that she tried though, that was impressive indeed.
I'm bringing this up also though to mention something that happened on that walk. She was asking me about her spiritual studies and practices and I recall that as a person of the world she was very sophisticated, she needed to see physical evidence right away that something could be done not just spoken about theoretically.
I remember at that time thinking, well, what to do and then feeling - perhaps it would be acceptable with Mother Earth to do this and so we stopped walking on the path and I raised my right hand up to the clouds - it was a cloudy day - and moving my hand back and forth and directing a benevolent energy in that direction from Mother Earth, requested that the clouds part just a little bit to reveal some blue sky.
There had been a few showers also so that was another motivation and the clouds immediately parted directly over where we were and there was rain all around us but not where we were. I had never done that before and it was my first experience of working with the weather which I've been taught how to do extensively.
I felt good about that moment and as I recall it now feel good about sharing it with you all.
