MBO FOR CONTACT LENS
Dianne in the UK writes: I have to tell you an amazing MBO which happened to me this week.
Some time ago I had put an MBO around my contact lenses so that I never lose one. I wear the old style hard contacts. Since MBO-ing my lenses I have had had some near misses but none which prove MBOs work more than this one.
In The UK we have had an unprecedented snowfall this week, which has caused chaos. One very early morning, after struggling to the station the train was just pulling in, for which we were extremely grateful for as you can imagine, when the peak of my hat fell down and knocked a lens out And I was standing knee deep in snow!
My daughter thought she spotted it however I was highly dubious as everywhere was glistening like a billion possible contact lens. Anyway she gave this handful of snow to my son in law and we sat on the train while the snow thawed in his hand. Sure enough, nestling in his palm was my contact lens!
I was so grateful and so grateful to you and to MBOs, Tom.
I requested a MBO too for not losing my glasses, as I was constantly forgetting where I left them, and had to return to a restaurant a couple of times to retrieve. So far, so good.
MBO’S FOR CAR AND BOOK
Grace writes: I wish to tell you about a car I had wanted for sometime. I said a MBO prayer as you stated and visited two days later to the house of my friend. His first words were he was finally going to sell this car. I had been with him when he bought the car…so I did know that only one owner had owned the car, before my friend, and how good the car had been handled.
I had not expected him home. I went there to drop off a card. He was home, and I walked away one day later with the car at my price.
I drove this car for the holiday (Thanksgiving) to Palm Springs to visit my deceased brother’s wife’s family. The brother of my deceased sis-in-law asked about the book. Turns out the brother is best friends with a Ghost writer…one whom has won many awards, very successful and willing to give me pointers on how to catch an agent or publisher’s eye. He has offered to help me, as soon as I get the second book ready. It is being illustrated now.
You are a gem to help so many folks. I thank you so very much for being such a friend to all.
MBO’S AT WORK IN COLLEGE
Marie writes: I’m always saying the MBO’s, especially teaching it to others, more often with my college classmates and students there. Writing down the MBO’s to help them remember. So far the MBO’s have done extremely well on my courses, getting 90`s and 100′s with the few lower scores in reading, averaging 88 in reading. The MBO’s helps my confidence, especially before I took my last (half of my reading final) I received a 96% while two in my class who are doing better than me received a 78% and 85%. I decided to believe in the MBO’s I said.
MBO FOR LOST RING
Richard writes: I really enjoy the newsletters and I have just about finished reading your book which by the way has really opened my eyes about guardian angels.
Yesterday my wife and I were raking leaves at our home and later on that night I noticed that I had lost my wedding band (we got married on October 23rd) we went outside and searched the entire yard and then searched again with a metal detector and the ring was nowhere to be found, my wife and I finally decided to go back into the house and try to look the next day. On the way into the house I remembered to say the MBO request to my guarding angel and when I finished the request I walked on the other side of the yard and reached down and there was my wedding band, and to beat it all it was where we both had gone over with the metal detector. The request really does work if you only believe.
Thanks for your book and making us aware of what is going on around us each day, I could almost hear the wings of my guardian angel going off to deliver my request when I said the prayer.
MBO FOR CHARITY
Carol in Canada writes: Recently I found and ordered your books. I have been practicing you MBO for about 2 weeks. Last Monday I received a call out of the blue from my art dealer. My great-Uncle’s painting of a Tibetan Abbot was sold for $25,000. After deductions for restoration and percentage of the sale I will receive about $16,000. I was actually in shock. I had requested a MBO for some more $ to be able to donate the last $1400 to a charity I support. So that will happen for sure.
I am convinced MBOs work because I asked my guardian angel to tell me his/her name in a dream two night ago and I woke up with the name in my head. I had mispronounced the last syllables but upon reading your book 2 I realized that I had made a mistake e.g. an i instead of e.
Thanks so much for sharing and a blessed Christmas to you.
THE ORIGIN OF CHRISTMAS
How did December 25th become the day that is celebrated as Jesus’ birthday? The origin of this celebration dates back many centuries to the time when the early Catholic Church was trying to convert large numbers of pagans to Christianity.
Roman pagans at that time celebrated the holiday of Saturnalia from December 17-25 when the pagans would force one person from each community to gorge on food and drink for one week and then sacrifice that person. During this time the Roman courts were closed, so there was widespread intoxication, sex, rape, and people going from house to house singing naked. They also consumed human-shaped biscuits.
In the 4th Century, the Catholic Church was able to convert masses of pagans to Christianity by promising them they could continue their celebration. The church chose December 25th at the end of the celebration as Jesus’ birthday. The singing in the streets was the forerunner of caroling today.
In order to convert more pagans, the Catholic Church allowed the Asheira Cult, which worshiped trees in the forest and brought them into their homes, to continue this practice—thus the origin of the Christmas tree.
The origin of Christmas presents dates all the way back to pre-Christian times during that same Saturnalia celebration where the most despised citizens were forced by the emperor to bring him presents. Later there was general gift giving among the citizens, and so the Catholic Church changed it to the supposed gift giving of St. Nicholas.
Nicholas was a Bishop involved in assembling of the Bible during the Council of Nicaea in 325-327. He was not given sainthood until the 19th Century. A group of sailors moved his bones from Turkey to Bari, Italy where they rid the community of a lady nicknamed Grandmother who filled the stockings of children, and established a cult of Nicholas. They sent each other gifts on December 6, the date of Nicholas’ death. The cult spread north and was adopted by pagans who worshipped Woden. Woden sported a white beard and rode a horse through the heavens. This was changed into riding the horse through the winter heavens with heavy winter clothing. The Catholic Church adopted the Nicholas cult (in order to convert more pagans) and changed the gift giving to December 25th.
In 1809 Washington Irving referred to Saint Nicholas by his Dutch name Santa Claus. In 1822 Dr. Clement Moore wrote the famous “Night Before Christmas” referring to Saint Nicholas.
You have to admit it is really amusing that all of our Christmas traditions and rituals were from pagan celebrations. And you can also look upon it as tragic, that the early Christians would stoop to incorporate pagan practices in order for their church to grow and PROSPER—as that was the name of the game.
I have read where there are doubters as to Jesus’ actual existence. I would remind you that three of the largest religions of the world, all of which began in Israel, include him in their histories, with three quite divergent opinions of his significance. This man was the Master of Love, whatever else you believe.
