Three Spiritual Tools for Gracefully Dealing with Change

The first step toward change is acceptance. Once you accept yourself, you open the door to change. That’s all you have to do. Change is not something you do, it’s something you allow.

~Will Garcia

Change is around us at every single turn. Often it appears as a gentle ripple in the fabric of our lives, and yet, that ripple branches out and alters more for us and within us than we could have imagined. Sometimes, we may like these ripples of change and their results, and sometimes we may not like them at all, but we aren’t being forced to be tossed aimlessly about by life’s currents. We have more empowerment and capability than we know waiting within us to be utilized. These are tools that we can use not only to deal with the changes that happen to us and around us, but to also assist and support us in being catalysts for positive, substantial change in our own world.

Here are three tips and tools that you can begin using right away to successfully navigate through change.

  • Accept that change is constant. Changes are ongoing, but as scary as they sometimes appear to be, all changes aren’t negative. Every day, people are working to bring about wonderful changes that will alter lives for the better. People are working to cure diseases, bring species back from the brink, and create art, songs and stories that will delight and inspire many. change can be positive. If we can cultivate acceptance, then we can also learn to deal with changes gracefully. Acceptance does not equal passiveness!
  • We can choose how we respond to changes. If changes are going on that you don’t like, you don’t have to sit by quietly. Let your voice be heard. One person’s message is not futile. How would you like to be a catalyst for positive change? Your efforts matter. Consider joining an organization that means something to you. Reach out and share your thoughts on topics which you hold dear. Remember that you are valuable and you can inspire and empower by the actions you take and the words you speak.
  • Ask yourself, what ripples of change are you personally creating in the world? Are they positive or negative most of the time? These don’t have to be waves, remember… ripples of positive change can effect massive transformation. Who did you speak to with kindness today? At whom did you smile? Did you show yourself some love recently? You can be the change. yes, I’m talking to you. You are not insignificant. You are valuable. You matter more than you probably realize. You can alter someones perception with a compassionate word, uplift someone’s spirit with a smile, or alter someone’s entire life trajectory through the light you radiate. You make a difference. What ripples do you choose to make today?

Wishing you joy on the journey!
