Apathy – Level 50/1000
Apathy is a level of consciousness that is characterized by poverty, neglect, hopelessness, and despair.
I was once at a level of severe grief and apathy in late 2015. I have manic-depression and I was coming down from a manic episode. It took me about 4 months to see light at the end of the tunnel. People who have apathy have a “why bother trying” mentality.
In my therapy groups, I have witnessed clients who are going through apathy. This state can be induced by mind-numbing medication. Low states are also the result of the law of rhythm and ego backlash. When we have glimpses into our true nature and merge with oneness, the downward spiral can have us wishing to return to a more nirvanic state.
Euphoria is often followed by dysphoria. The opposite is also true. To rise above the depression that an apathetic person is at, one must allow themselves to feel the feeling fully so it can be released. When I went through the dark night of the soul, I allowed myself to withdraw from my life so I could sleep and heal. Depression could also be called “deep rest”. We go through life in seasons, there is a season to be depressed, and a season to be in bliss.
Most of life feels normal, but this normal feeling is usually at your baseline level of being. My baseline consciousness is about 220-250 on the scale of consciousness. With a mindfulness practice and going higher through surrender, I can reach higher states for short amounts of time. In higher states, life is effortless. In lower states, we feel like we must make a huge effort to get things done.
I’m a believer in goal free living.
Someone with apathy may not be in a place to set goals. The reality is the feminine way of operating with the law of attraction is far more powerful than using the masculine way. I believe in trusting the universe and allowing the bigger picture to take care of itself. Your states of consciousness are all tools for a certain job. While in high states it’s common to get attached to the joy and bliss and when it begins to recede and lower back to normal, this can result in intense boredom.
People who are at levels 200-250 struggle with boredom. As I make this article I’m about neutral which is actually good for writing. When I wrote my last article, I felt a lot of bliss and my connection with life was more profound.
The power of now is a concept that states there are no problems until you are in position to fix them. To solve problems on the outside takes effort, but if you are in a serene state, the problems will dis-solve.
The apathetic condition will invoke the law of attraction to create circumstances to bring about more and more apathy.
People who are stuck in a hell like level of being like apathy are far less likely to get over their inertia. Action over inertia is a huge part of rising above depression. You have to give yourself a reason to feel good.
The bottom line is that true joy requires no reasons. Reason is a level of being that is around 375-400 on the scale of consciousness. To have faith in the divine requires reasons to, self-belief also requires reason. Logic is strong in the 3-400’s and one will be able to come up with a very reasonable way of looking at life. Serenity is needed to access reason fully. Once one is in a state of true nirvanic bliss, reason takes a backseat.
I’m on the autism spectrum with Asperger’s Syndrome, my soul is very powerful in the realm of reason. I was able to solve arithmetic at age 6 and could read at age 4. The older the soul, the faster one will become their soul’s expression.
Many older souls struggle to fit in on Earth because the energetic expressions are higher in an older soul’s higher reality. Re-incarnation is the return on soul-information. The soul doesn’t re-incarnate per se, but consciousness is in all beings. The soul is like a memory stick. All people are a unique expression, but the energy of souls move from life to life. The linear timeline makes us think we move forward in time, but the soul is not time-bound. The mind-body is timebound, but the soul can reincarnate from the past or the future.
Old souls are not interested in money or status, they are more interested in knowledge, minimalism, and inner peace. The older the soul the more depressing the world can seem. Coming from higher dimensions and incarnating onto a vibratory plane like Earth can require a huge adjustment.
Apathy is treated best through behavioral activation. This means engaging in simple but meaningful activity. To feel sad requires one to elevate their state to grief. Anger is an upgrade to this level of consciousness as well. To feel sadness is to let a lot of pent-up feelings go. Feeling angry is another way to release negative energy. Expression of your true state will help with transcendence.
Honesty and courage are a massive part of making conscious breakthroughs. Honesty is the ability to say what you think and not keep secrets. The 5th chakra can get blocked from lying to oneself or others. If you feel low, don’t try to escape the state, explore it instead. The honest and authentic responses to reality will allow one to get higher access to better states. Higher states also facilitate honesty.
