About thirteen 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 we utilize these requests with our pets? As an example, we found one of my dogs, Sandy, at a local animal shelter. They had discovered her on the side of a busy highway. A beagle-dachshund mix, she will roam the neighborhood if we accidentally leave the gate open, which certainly at the very least could mean the permanent loss of a sweet, lovable dog. When this happens, I have immediately requested out loud, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for finding Sandy safe and sound. Thank you.” You always thank your Guardian Angel and make these requests with emotion, as that works best.
We always find her, although one time some workmen were holding her in a house being remodeled down the street from us. When they saw us searching the grounds of the house for the third time (I “felt” that she was nearby), she suddenly appeared. Another time she ran across four lanes of traffic on a busy street that we live next to. Most of the time we can find her socializing with other dogs within a block radius. Requesting a Benevolent Outcome always puts me at ease, as I KNOW that I’m going to find her. It takes the stress and worry away.
I will explain how to take the stress and worry out of caring for a sick pet below, but first let’s back up a little. When it’s time to add a pet into your family, you say, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for finding the perfect pet for our family. Thank you.” If you have definitely decided upon a dog, cat, or other animal or bird, you can be specific in your request, but if you have not decided, let your Guardian Angel and the universe assist you.
It works this way. Perhaps when you go to an animal shelter, possibly one of the attendants there points out a pet that just arrived that morning, even just a few minutes before you arrived. Or you will just be drawn to one particular animal that in your heart you know is the perfect companion for your family. Possibly even before you go out searching one of your friends calls and says their dog or cat just had a litter of puppies or kittens. They ask if you would be interested in coming over to take a look at them. Your Guardian Angel works in amazing ways, and I can assure you it’s FUN to sit back and see how the pieces of the puzzle come together when you make requests for MBO’s (as I call them). Just remember that requesting Benevolent Outcomes has to be benevolent for all concerned.
Next, you have to choose the right food for your new companion. There are so many foods on the market today that I think it’s best to request a Benevolent Outcome for choosing the right food for your pet. Even your vet can make a mistake in recommending a certain brand. Let yourself be guided in choosing the right formula and the right amount to feed your pet. And don’t forget to request a MBO when choosing vitamins to help keep your pet healthy and live a long life.
When your pet is sick, that can really cause you to be concerned and worry for their welfare. One lady that had previously read my articles on requesting Benevolent Outcomes told me how her cat was recently in distress; so she took her cat to the veterinarian and requested a MBO that the cat would be fine. She was greatly relieved to be told by the vet that it was an easy problem to treat.
Your pets normally are quite afraid of their trips to the veterinarian. I always say, “I request a Most Benevolent Outcome for our (pet’s name) visit to the vet.” One of our dogs is so afraid of going to a vet (after being given up twice by other families) that I have to leave his leash off until we are ready to go inside. One of our previous female dogs had a parvo type disease that is fatal 99 out of 100 times. We requested a Benevolent Outcome for her recovery, and then had the “inspiration” to start feeding her large amounts of the same vitamin E we took for our health. Her blood count slowly increased to the point where she completely recovered.
I’m going to give you something else that works when you see an animal on TV that has been injured, tortured, or trapped. If you love animals (and you wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t) you feel quite frustrated that you can’t help that animal in person. You can do something. You can say out loud, “I ask that any and all beings come to the aid of this animal and comfort, aid, and assist this animal in any and all ways. Thank you.” These requests are not acted upon by your Guardian Angel, but by other Angelic beings, and INSTANTLY. You do not limit the request to humans, as it could be other animals or Angelic beings that actually physically assist that animal in distress. You use the word “ask” instead of “request” as that is a more general request. Then you will feel better that at least you did what you could to aid that animal. This confidence will be higher if you have been previously requesting Benevolent Outcomes in your life, so you know from direct experience and knowledge that making these requests really work!
So, a Most Benevolent Outcome for you life with those loving companions who do so much to make our lives more enjoyable! Your life with them will be much less stressful and worry-free when you request Benevolent Outcomes from the time that you wish to add them to your family and all through their lives with you. I wish you all a Good Life!
