Benevolent Outcomes

by Joe Vitale on January 23, 2011

Tom Moore wrote a couple of cool books that are helping me fine-tune my intentions these days.

The Gentle Way and The Gentle Way II are “self-help guides for those who believe in angels.”

I love the niche of the titles: if you don’t believe in angels, pass up these books. But I don’t think believing in angels is crucial to using the method Moore describes.

In short, he suggests that you ask for a “benevolent outcome” for whatever you are about to do or request.

For example, I might say, “I ask for the most benevolent outcome in writing this blog post.”

Or you might say, “I ask for the most benevolent outcome in meeting with my potential new employer.”

There are many ways to word these requests, but basically the phrase “benevolent outcome” is key.

gentle way book

“Benevolent” means, in my own words, highest good. So you’re asking for the highest possible good to come out of whatever you are doing or requesting. (My favorite word is “benestrophe” which is many good things happening at once; the opposite of a catastrophe.)

When you’re asking for a benevolent outcome, you’re releasing your ego’s need to control the result. Yes, you still want what you request, but you’re open to something better.

There’s a freedom in using this method to set intentions. Too many requests are based in fear and desperation. Bad move. The energy hiding in such a request will either block your desired outcome or bring you something to match the feeling of desperation and fear. You don’t want either.

I wrote in my book The Attractor Factor, and in many other places, that you can have virtually whatever you want, as long as you don’t need it.

The key word is need. When you need something, you are putting life and death stress on your request.

Instead, state your request with the disclaimer that you are open to the best possible outcome, which may be something you don’t see right now. The ego has blinders. The Divine does not.

The beauty of the method Moore describes is you get to make your request and remain open to something better.

Moore wants you to ask these requests of your guardian angels. I’m all for it. I’ve been doing it just that way, too. But if angels are a stretch for you, consider that you are making the requests of your unconscious, wiser, higher, deeper mind. Either way, you get the benefit.

Here are tips from Moore on how to make these requests:

Request the Benevolent Outcomes out loud, whisper, or in writing.
Start with easy requests for immediate feedback.
Be very specific with your request.
Make requesting Benevolent Outcomes a habit.
Requesting a Benevolent Outcome with emotion and feeling reinforces the request.
Don’t be afraid to ask for the impossible.
You can request that the outcome be even more than you can expect or imagine.
Thank your Guardian Angel for fulfilling your request.

Experiment with benevolent outcomes today. Before your next call, or email, or visit, or anything, ask “I request the most benevolent outcome for…”

I am experimenting with being very specific while still letting go of attachment.

For example, I might state, “I request the most benevolent outcome with my writing songs that inspire and are fun and hit the Billboard charts.”

Moore’s books are breezy reads. They are great places to learn more about the specifics of this easy method, and to see countless examples of them in use from people like you and me. I recommend them.

Ao Akua,

Oooh! I LOVE this. Asking for the most benevolent outcome. I’m having one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” moments right now. Really, it could not be simpler than this. Thank you, Joe!

You personally gave me an example of Benevolent Outcome
when you created the win-win guitar purchase from me.

Is there a way to send you an email reguarding a goup of amazing folks addressing homelessness and many adjacent issues, grassroots style? No, I am not affiliated with them nor getting paid in any way to promote what they are doing…


Joe Vitale January 25, 2011 at 8:27 am

My email is right on this blog. Joe

What a beautiful post in many ways. I love what you wrote …’The ego has blinders. The Divine does not.’.

I am a firm believer in Angels, my whole extended family is, as we have had proof of their existence, with many witnesses, on more than one occasion. Once again, you have pointed out what should have been obvious to me, but went right over my head.
Thank you so much for that.

Lots of love to you and yours.

I have been using Most Benevolent Outcomes for over a year now and believe me, it really does work. Who cares how? I just happen to believe strongly in angels but it works with whatever floats your boat. Using this offering of Tom Moore’s also gives you a calmness and peace your wouldn’t believe.

Try it. it’s free, and you’ll really like it.

Joe, thank you for passing Tom’s message on because you’ve given many, many people an immeasurable gift including him.

Thanks, Joe, for this support of Tom’s work. My family and friends have really benefitted from his books, weekly newsletter, and blog. Quite a bit is mind boggling!, to be sure; but it’s a good boggle that gets that gray matter stirring and that’s a good thing. I have to admit I only “kinda knew,” was “pretty sure” that angels were active in our lives, but Tom’s work cinches it for me. No doubt about it anymore. Following his suggestions for requesting help, I’ve had awesome outcomes, the Most Benevolent Outcomes I could hope for. :-)

Hi Joe,
I came on over from Tom’s newsletter link where he told us about your blog post. I like what you wrote about the benevolent outcome requests, and Tom’s books. I’ve been practising MBO’s (Most Benevolent Outcome’s) for a year or so now, and I have to say the results have been remarkable for me, from parking spots to getting my girlfriend’s home loan for her dream house approved at the 11th hour, when all else had failed.
The Secret gave me a look into a possible world that was there for the asking. The Gentle Way builds on it and helps us focus on the things we really want, or better. Imagine if everyone had this info – wow, what a beautiful world!
Glad you got on board with Tom’s work Joe. :o ) Tom is an amazing man, TOO!
Cheers from Perth, Western Australia.

Tom is the real deal.
I have Tom’s books and Benevolent Request work.

I have been using them for 40 years and it makes me glad that Tom is spreading the secret to the world.

Shane May 10, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Guardian Angel, I request a most benevolent outcome for establishing and progressing successfully and prosperously in my own consulting business, with many many confirmed and pending contracts and abundant resources to provide absolutely wonderful, high quality and effective and efficient services using inter alia, established methodologies with which I am and welll versed and dynamically sensitised and educated, for a phenomenal, consistent income for a minimum of at least the next 10 years, such that I am able to live an absolutely fantastic, blessed, healthy and affluent life, with much travel and adventure and personal development, all in the most benevolent way, RIGHT NOW, and may the result be even better than I can hope for or expect. THANK YOU!
