& THE HOLIDAYS
TOM T. MOORE
The month of December
is generally viewed as a great month 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 ten years ago, in reading spiritual
articles and books, I read a suggestion to request benevolent outcomes
for events in your 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
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.
Here are some Holiday travel
requests for Benevolent Outcomes:
· Your drive be safe and free of traffic to the airport or destination;
· Your luggage will arrive safely and on time;
· You speed through the Security Line with no delays;
· Your plane and any connections are on time;
· You sit next to someone interesting, or, if you need to sleep,
next to someone who will not want to talk;
· Your safety participating in sports.
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 ASK FOR THE
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. 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.
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 request a Benevolent Outcome for a pleasant time with someone who
has caused everyone problems. When you request Benevolent Outcomes for
yourself, it also affects others—in this case those who are 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 Benevolent Holiday!
