I have been pondering whether I should ask this question for a solid couple of months now. I finally feel it's time to come out and bring it into the open, since I am getting no personal progression on this item (both in life experience and analytical satisfaction).
So here, my authentic asking of your opinions and answers, goes:
First off, to lay some amazing context here, I feel it would aid if you could please watch this quick 30 second clip of a man stopping a woman from jumping to her death.
My question is: How can I attract a situation, in a similar fashion, where I feel and am possibly viewed as a modern day good samaritan? I want to be a Spiderman.
Bare in mind, this is different to just a random act of kindness (which I'm not belittling). I'm after something in which case my beliefs would label as something extreme and big.
On top of that, it would be most helpful if someone could lay the foundation of the basic metaphysics at work here (I'm totally lost). What are the emotional roles of the man, the woman, their general belief systems and the heroic act itself? Though I have learned many things since joining IQ, I am still mind boggled over how something like this can play out on earth? Did the man attract his 'heroic act'? Did he even view it as heroic?
Oh, and yes, I can already anticipate much 'ego' harrament about this one, yet I'm still yearning to learn all about how some people are viewed as heroes with situations, and some aren't; ego answers are welcomed, just as non-ego perspectives are as well.
Is there anything I can do to manifest this, or is it merely just some "put this in the manifesting box like everything else" style material. If that's the case, I already am extensivley rehearsed with info on that, so no probs :)
Thanks cool people. And enjoy keep enjoying your life experience, wherever you may be vibrationally ^.^
While I can respect your joy for wanting to be a hero and helping people, saving people, BUT I don't want to attract situations into my life where someone needs saving.
I was first on the scene of a terrible nighttime auto accident. Car flipped over and was sinking in a swamp beside the road. I got down in the water because I heard muffled screaming from inside the car. It was a young girl, trapped and trying to stay above water level. I managed to get a door open, crawled in, could not free her, so I held her above the water until a wrecker arrived and pulled the car over.
Three other people died in that car. Two were killed outright and I could hear one moaning, but could not get to him. There was danger to me, I did not know if the car would sink deeper, trapping me also. There was a lot of spilled gasoline and oil. The fumes and smell of death were all around me. A friend, who was traveling with me, bent over to talk with me and started to light a cigarette. I yelled at him. He put it away, but I didn't know if others would be so wise.
I was felt an emotional detachment, focussing on getting the young girl distracted from the carnage around us. When the car had been pulled upright and she was ok, just a broken arm. It all hit me and I threw up.
Another time I had to shoot someone who was about to shoot a friend. The smell of burnt gunpowder, feces and blood have remained with me for the last 40 years. I was also detached emotionally and threw up later.
The movies make a hero seem glamorous, but in these situations, and a few others I am repressing, I felt like Jack Bauer in "24" (which I don't watch anymore). He saved a major American city, maybe an entire state from destruction, but lost friends, had to do dreadful things that he really did not want to do and lost his beloved wife in 24 hours.
When it was over, he went out to his car, broke down and sobbed. I understood.
No, I don't watch dramatic struggle movies like "24" anymore. Not only did they bring bad dreams, I seemed to be confronted with struggle scenes in my life, nowhere as bad as in "24", but bad enough! I regret bringing these things above into my consciousness.
I once saw a person drown. I can't swim except with fins which I did not have. It would have been suicide for me to try to save them, the water was deep and swift. I yelled for help, but I did not jump in and try to save them. I could not find anything to float on and paddle out to them. I did feel huge guilt after they went under.
But somehow, I asked for these situations. I wanted to be a hero. But the aftermath made it very hard to "enjoy". Would I do these things again? Probably. Do I want to attract these things into my life? Do I want to attract situations like this? I want peace, harmony and joy.
I need to go take a shower and meditate on Beauty and Joy. I have let Darkness come into me. But maybe some people will think through exactly what situations they want to attract and see if would really be worth it to them.
To me there is now a false joy in getting into a struggling awful situation and making it better. I would rather have good situations that do not need my struggling input.
If what I did made me a hero, I truly want be something else.

Nikulas, By writing this question you have probably already set your Intention in motion:)
I would start right where you are.Start small, help out in whatever way you can and then appreciate that you can help out.
The more you appreciate being able to help, the more the Universe would have to facilitate you in bigger and grander ways to help out.
By the way you already are a hero and an inspiration to some of us here:)
We need to define what heroism actually is.
Yes there was a movie I just watched that one man saved another man, he lost his life to save the other man. He did not think of his self, he saw what was coming but could not stand back and watch his partner get killed in an avalanche. Furthermore he knew this man had a baby on the way and a good woman while he himself lived every day alone because his wife died years ago. He couldn't stand back and let his partner die so he rushed and attached himself to his partner just as the avalanche fell. He saved his partner but when his partner came back up off the cliff he found the one that saved him was dying.
Now that guy was a hero not because he wanted his picture in the paper or to wear a medal or even to have a whole town to cheer for his saving his partner. No not for any of that but because he cared about others enough to make the sacrifice. He didn't live to see his picture in the paper or the store dedicated to him yet he was hero.
There are those in the Military that are heroes every day that sacrifice their own lives to save those of their fellow soldiers. They do not do this for recognition but because they care. They don't do this for medals, even though they receive medals and many times it cost their lives.
Then there are Firemen, Policemen, Doctors, Search and rescue service, Emergency Management, Nurses, even Security guards can be heroes. It is just about doing what is right and caring enough to do what is right.
There are everyday heroes, for example the homeless man that is hungry and the man that buys him a sandwich. That is a hero to that homeless man he made a difference.
There are other everyday heroes, like the person whom tells someone that drinks and is depressed about Jesus and this changes his life. He decides to repent and change his life and this changes his families life as he becomes a good man that knows he is not alone and what he can not handle God can handle. That person made a difference and is a hero to that family.
I have myself talked people out of suicide many times over the years on the Internet. To those people I may be their heroes because if it wasn't for me they would not be alive today. If they were not alive today all the people they affected since I talked them out of suicide they would not have helped. My actions affected many maybe hundreds or thousands because I cared about someone to do something about it.
I don't usually talk about this that I helped stop people from killing themselves because really I didn't do it to be recognized as a hero. I really didn't and still don't care about that title I just care about people.
While we are on the subject do you realize something you wrote on here may change or save someone's life and that makes you already a hero?
Two more everyday heroes that don't get enough credit.
The father that sacrifices his body, mind and time to work to support his family and the mother that sacrifices her body, mind and time to spend the day taking care of her family physically and emotionally. They could say I don't care I am going to party, the kids will be alright alone. No, they care about their family enough to want to make things livable maybe even good for their family.
Nikulas, I think that if you adopt and nurture the dominant thought that you would like to be of service, then the opportunity to be of service will be provided for you.
As you know, the Universe will give you a match to your vibration on the subject, so if you can be of service in some small way, any small way that presents itself to you, you will get the feeling that you are after. Then you can dwell on it, magnify it, and really enjoy the feeling. I believe that will increase the intensity and raise the vibration of the message you are sending out, (I REALLY want to be of service!) and increase the intensity of the the experiences you are offered, too.
I also think that having a very good look at why you want to experience this would be very helpful in defining and refining the request you are presenting to the universe.

Dearest Nikulas, Being a hero is simple and the Coke commersial that CalonLan posted says it all. Give A Little Love And It All Comes Back To You. Truer words were never spoken. So now you know how to become a hero go ahead and spread love wherever you go. No I'm not talking of romantic love but love for life itself.
Smile more often and be more friendly and be aware and appreciate the world and beauty arround you.
Go ahead and watch that Coke commersial again bearing in mind that it wont be exactly like that but it will be a beginning to a life of heroism for after all in the world where dog eats dog to find someone that smiles apreciates and cares is a refreshing and heroic act.

Set the intention, or pray every day that you are blessing to somebody. I do that when I remember. While walking to church on Sunday, I noticed a woman standing on the corner trying to get accross the street, but the cars wouldn't stop. They are supposed to stop if someone is standing on the corner, every corner is a designated crosswalk here. So I waited for the appropriate time, stepped into the crosswalk, waited for traffic to stop, then waved the woman accross the street, she was on the other side. She said, "You're awesome!" and I continued on to church. I felt like a hero for that moment. Even if I didn't save any lives, I helped out another person where I could. I look for opportunities to be a blessing to others.
I also learned to only look for the ones that I can do something about. I have injuries, so I don't look for things that would hurt me more.
One time I was driving home and I saw a man in a motorized chair who had fallen over in his chair and was stuck in the street. So I went around the corner and parked. I got him sitting up so he could get his chair going again. I wouldn't have been able to pick him up, or move his chair, but I could push his upper body to an upright position.
Another time I was driving home and all of a sudden it started pouring, dumping down water, not even rain drops, buckets. I saw a woman and her child in a stroller stranded under an awning along the street. I stopped and helped them into my car and gave them a ride home. It was so drenching that I was soaked in the little time it took to open the back so she could put the stroller in.
Even silly stuff like I will open an automatic door for someone and wave them through saying, "Let me get the door for you," with a big smile. Even helping people reach or find things at the store. Making someone laugh when they are feeling down can feel heroic.
So if you have the intention to bless or rescue someone and then you look for opportunities, you will find them. Only create situations you can handle.
I am a little embarrassed sharing this. I am not bragging, just sharing some of my experiences. I also have always wanted to be a superhero and save people. I have hurt myself helping people before, so I learned to only attract situations where I can help. I also got tired of living in a reality where there were so many people that needed saving. Especially since I would like to make some friends and it would be nice if we were equally yoked so to speak.
For a technique, try this. Do Two Hands Touching then say, "I am super." Do THT
Say, "I can do great things." Do THT
Say, "I have great powers." Do THT
Say, "I use my awesome powers for good." Do THT
Say, "I allow myself to be great." Do THT
Say, "I can leap over buildings in a single bound." Do THT
Say, "I can see how powerful I really am." Do THT
Say, "I can see beyond the illusion of limitation." Do THT
Say, "I can remember all the great things I have done." Do THT
Say, "I salute the Divinity within me." Do THT
Say, "I salute the Divinity in others." Do THT
Be humble, and ask God to use you for good.
Pray to be of any service to your fellow man or woman.
Then, set the intent out into the Mind of God, and watch what happens.
It is quite simple, in the end.
If you want God to use you, He most certainly will- on His terms, not yours, however!
