Stages of a Transformation

Stages of a Transformation

Written by


There can be many reasons why you say “NO MORE” & want to make changes to your life, but sometimes when you’re in the thick of living your life, it can be hard to step back and see the changes that have transpired in your life and from the inner work you are doing.

So, how can you tell after an RTT® session if you have received the results you want?

The results after a session can appear in 1 of 3 ways:

💎 Instant - instant results.  You can instantly see and feel the results.

💎 Accumulative - changes have compounded overtime.  Small incremental changes occur over a period of time.

💎 Retroactively - when you have reflected back over the time after the session you noticed results and areas in your life that have improved.  

The results you can experience are different for everyone and there is no right or wrong.  Healing isn’t a linear journey and no 2 paths are the same.

What is a personal transformation?

A personal transformation is a unique experience of expanding consciousness and a elevation in life and mindset and releasing past conditionings.  During this process it is normal to become critically aware of old and new self-views, patterns and behaviours and choose to integrate these views into a new self-definition and self-version.

When it comes to a personal transformation in your life and taking the action to make changes, there can be 7 stages:


  1. Cry for Help and longing for change - In the first stage of transformation, you realise that something needs to be changed, can no longer continue or something is missing in your life. You might be asking yourself questions like: “Is this all there is?”, “Is there more to life”, “Will this be how the rest of my life is going to be”, “Is this the only way of living I am destined for?”


  1. The Initiation - The cry for help has been answered and you have found support to help guide you along the journey. This is where you start to see the patterns of your life and behaviours all come together and start to gain clarity on why your life is the way it is.


  1. The Dark Night of the Soul – This is where you question absolutely everything and feel like your whole life is changing.  Sometimes a huge shakeup is required to be able to put all the pieces back together to form a different picture. This is where you feel that you experience a death and rebirth. This represents a period of transition and transformation where all that is no longer needed or relevant is shredded away.  


  1. The Distant Dawn – It’s time to do the shadow work and face the inner demons. Embrace the art of surrender and learn to just let it go and accept.  Pushing and fighting for control only makes the process harder and keeps you stuck in the place that you have been before and just come from. Go with the flow and surrender to having to know what the next steps will look like. Step into uncertainty and trust the process.  Lean Into your inner guidance and let your intuition lead you.


  1. Tapping into Purpose – Through questioning it all, embracing the shadow work and leaning into your inner guidance it can clear the pathway for clarity on your life’s purpose and passion.  Without the distraction of the “automatic going through the motions” and making the changes you are now free to ignite the passion for living a life filled with purpose.


  1. Balance and Foundations - This is the time that you choose how and where to lay the new foundations.  Like putting together a jigsaw puzzle,     you have all the pieces laid out in front of you and you know need to take the time to put the picture together. This is an exciting time as you are now taking control and choosing a different version of you and your life.


  1. Inner Power – Step up and shine! Take responsibility and aligned action to create your reality.  When you stand  in your sovereignty and power you can control yourself and your response  to your external environment easier and in a more relaxed and calm state.  You are in control of your life and the outcomes for living your best life.


What makes a transformation successful?

Any transformation is not about short-term cures and quick fixes, but long-term and deep healing. A successful transformation provides healing, elevates you to another level, inspires changes in your life and in the lives of those around you, builds momentum for lasting changes and moves you on from a current and past situation to a better future.

To transform yourself in any area of your life; first, you must decide you want to change and be ready to do the deep inner work and take aligned action to make it happen. Second, have a vision of what the transformed you will look like or the outcome and new version of you that you want to be living. The biggest transformations come from shining the light onto the shadow side, diving in deep, taking inspired action and being consistent in the pursuit to step into and live your best life and best evolved version of you.

To help your transformation along its journey:

·      Get clear on what you want, how you want your life to be and what you are working towards and want to call in.

·      Take aligned action, even if it is just one small step at a time.

·      Learn from others. There have been others that have been on a similar journey who can help you to fast track your own results.

·      Live and breathe the energy of what you want to call in.  Keep your vibrations and energy high and aligned.

·      Embrace the shadow side and make the uncomfortable comfortable.  Growth comes from change and pushing to the other side of the comfort zone.

·      Be your own cheerleader! Feed yourself a positive script and words daily and don’t give up on yourself.
