Change vs Transformation

Hearing the word change creates anxiety in me while transformation sparks an incredible joy in my heart.

So many factors of Life do in fact change. A job change, moving, or rearranging your schedule is change. Change makes it seem as though what you just went through is wrong and should be forgotten. This whole process can be hard and uncomfortable but necessary. Change also signals short-term. I am always hearing “do not worry, things will change.” I fell into that trap before with an ex of mine. I kept thinking that if so and so happened, change would occur until I finally realized it was not change I actually needed. I needed a complete overhaul. I want to make sure you know that I do not think change is bad. I welcome change (and sometimes I am not so friendly about it), but it is a part of this human experience
It was a complete transformation that I really was looking for.

Transformation implies permanence. It does not treat the past as wrong. It just transforms it and assists in creating the person you are today. It can make the past easier to comprehend and learn from. It can also open up all sorts of opportunities now and give you hope for the future.
Once it all makes sense to me, then I know I am on the right track.

Opportunities will only be presented to you when you are ready. The only way to know you are ready is that ‘feeling’ you get deep down that says to go for it; that you are at the point where that is possible. That is Spirit and you. That is what most people forget. You know yourself better than anyone else. So, why would you even think of questioning yourself? So, before you go and try to change others or even certain situations, please work on the most important person first: yourself. And, always listen intently to your heart whispers and soul echoes; you are being guided to personal transformation.

The awakening of your soul is such a private and personal experience and this major transformation cannot be undone. Once you go through that, you are done with the way it was before, whereas change means that you can always take it back or make a different choice. Change often keeps people stuck. It is so easy to just redo things or change things around, which threatens the validity of the action in the first place.
So, for me: transformation = permanence and change = temporary.

As for me, I have gone through many changes and transformations alike. I have gone through various jobs, cars, places to live, relationships of all kind and even the type of juice I am drinking at the time. I accept myself and all of the varying things that are going on at any given time. I accept that I am capable of undergoing a complete transformation when needed and I know that if a major change comes my way, I am well-equipped to handle it.

“Very often, a change of self is needed more than a change of scene.” – Arthur Christopher Benson

Change is inevitable. There will always be something going on and whether you are on board with it or not, the change is still going to take place. As for transformations, you will know when you are on the brink of a major one and just ride it out. Let it take you to the stars and back. Breathe everything in and smile because you are right where you are supposed to be.
