שינוי, הארה

the most accurate word in hebrew for change is shinuy (שינוי)- in most contexts, including this one, it is the simplest choice.
However, the word he'arah (הארה) might also suit your context. It is equivalent to the word illumination, but used in this sense more often than in English. Note: it necessarily implies a change for good in one's viewpoint.
