I am new to these boards but not to the Law of Attraction. My story is pretty long, please bear with me as I try to explain this the best I can. I am currently in a job that uses the LOA so perfectly but in the negative way, they will focus on all the negative things employees do wrong. Everyday we get told about the negative things we do wrong, they never focus on the positive stuff. In the mornings, they will have meetings that are 15 minutes long, they might focus on one positive thing for about five seconds. However, after that, the rest of the meeting is all about how everything is our fault on how things are going, and just dwell on the negative side of things.
From my understanding with the LOA is, what you focus on, doesn't matter if it is good or bad everything is energy, you will attract to you what you focus on. Well, what I have been doing lately is just focusing and be grateful for having the job that I currently have, even though I don't want to be in this situation anymore. I know that I have created this situation from my past actions, thoughts, feelings. I have been focusing on trying to attract a new career that is more in line with the LOA in a positive side, where they focus on the positive things. I am good with computers, and I would like to work in a company that deals with computers, sort of like an IT position may be. That they're grateful and appreciative of their employees, they talk in positive terms, show their appreciation. I have been trying to rid my subconscious mind of negative thoughts, feelings from the past and re-frame them into positive things, but at this point it just feels like no matter what I have done, I am still in this job that, in my opinion, feels like a dictatorship. The reason I say that is because they(the bosses) have stated that if you don't like how we do things here, then you need to go find another job. It is just hard sometimes to stay positive when your bosses tell you that kind of stuff, does anyone have any tips on what to do here?
Now, I want to get some input on this other situation that is going on that seems not to change in our favor at this point. My step dad is using the LOA just like how my employer is using it, he is very negative. I need to give a background history so you can understand where we're(my mom and I) at currently. My step dad's dad died when my step dad(I will call him Bob) was in his 20's, I believe. Bob was going over seas for something, he found out his dad died, and that he wasn't there when it happened. Bob still blames himself for his dad's death, he hasn't gotten over it at all, plus his mom walked out on him and his dad when he was young. The next thing, Bob went through a nasty divorce, and Bob's kids walked out on him, they took their mom's side. His ex-wife turned all of Bob's relatives against him, then he married my mom, they have been married almost 14 years now. However, when 9/11 happened, it changed both my mom, and I live forever, it started us on journey to find ourselves and to live a better life. Once we found out about the LOA, things started to change, Bob started to become more negative, Bob started making fun of my mom because she believes in animal communication, life after death, psychic abilities, he says none of that stuff is real, your thoughts can't change things, etc..... He works two jobs, basically working seven days a week.
To make a long story short, we have been able to read his thoughts, he has thought, how can I get rid of these animals without her(my mom) knowing? This morning one of our dogs died, my mom confronted him about it, he basically admitted that he wishes all of us, were dead. Since his kids don't talk to him, he told my mom that your worthless kid doesn't do anything, I am the only one that does anything, because I work two jobs. For a few years, my mom wasn't feeling well when she started working on changing her thoughts(she is in her 50's, and she had a very negative mother who made her feel worthless and have a low self esteem) I was the one that gave her the emotional support, she needed to help her get well. Bob never once asked her how she was doing, or if she needed anything, he just made it all about him, that his life is a miserable, I work two jobs, I don't have time to do anything. Has anyone read the Three Feet From Gold story? The story is basically about a guy giving up 3 feet from gold after he couldn't find anymore gold and in the story, it talks about people giving up when they're met with temporary defeat. Well, at this point, no matter how hard we work to change things and work on ourselves, Bob seems to create all of his negative stuff and cause death on our animals. Does anyone have any suggestions or in sight to these situations? Both my mom and I desire a new life with positive people, a positive supportive new husband who loves animals, knows all about the LOA, etc.... We know what we want, we know that we have to be grateful for what we have in this moment. However, how can you be grateful for a brain dead moron that has no respect for my mom or I and our animals, he just wishes that we're all dead. Just this year, a lot of things have come full circle from both of our past issues, plus we felt that we have made a lot of positive progress in growing into ourselves. However, being in this house with Bob, it just feels like a death house and that Adolf Hitler is here because he is nothing but filled with negativity!
We feel that we have been doing all this work, and he hasn't done anything and all he is doing is using his thoughts to kill our animals and feel sorry for himself, instead of taking responsibility for his own actions. He hasn't once taken any responsibility for anything in his life, whenever my mom tries to talk about his issues or how things are around here, he just says it is your fault, or it is your kid's fault. I know that this a lot for people to read, but I feel it is important for you to get the full history so you can help us better understand what to do. We can't just up and move somewhere, because we don't have any large amount of cash to use, or any place to go with our animals, and we are not going to leave them behind to die at the mind of Bob. Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
