Transform Your Life

Creating a space where change can happen takes a lot of work. Created by Amber Rae, author and motivational speaker, the “pyramid of transformation,” is a model that brings you through the stages of transformation when making a change in your life. You must be open and honest with yourself throughout the pyramid of transformation. To get to a place of joy within yourself after a change, there must be some transformation. Today, Pinnacle Recovery will review the transformation that occurs after an addiction.

Awareness

Realizing that something needs to change is the first step toward transforming your life. Many people who are struggling with an addiction aren’t even aware that their habits are a problem. Their friends and family may be telling them they need help, but they may not agree or even see the issue. There will come a time, however, when the person is finally aware of their addiction. If you find yourself finally realizing that you have an addiction, creating a space of awareness is the first step toward change. 

Responsibility

Taking responsibility for your actions is the next step, once you have become aware of the issue. You must learn that you create your own truth. Until you realize you are in control of your actions, you will never be able to change. Take control of your actions and commit to change. It’s not going to be easy, but it will be worth it. 

Forgiveness

Once you have taken responsibility and committed to making a change, you must forgive yourself for all of your wrongdoing. Release the blame you put on yourself. Stop shaming yourself for your prior actions. What is in the past is done — you can’t change it. What you can change, however, is what’s in front of you. You control your destiny. Make it a sober one. 

Peace

Creating a peaceful place to practice sobriety creates a safe place to work toward changing your habits. Practicing peace within yourself gives you the clear sense of mind you need to practice better ways. When you feel safe, you can make better decisions that lead to joy.

Joy

As you work toward ending your relationship with alcohol or drugs, you must acknowledge where you are. Being present and real with yourself is a necessary step toward moving forward and creating better habits. Grounding yourself through meditation is a step forward that can bring you the joy you deserve, free of substances.
