Before I tell you the 8’Rs of Restoration, you need to know the deeper meaning of the word restoration from a spiritual and natural standpoint.
The spiritual meaning of the word Restoration is to receive back more than has been lost to the point where the final state is greater than the original condition. Someone or something is improved beyond measure. God blesses people for their faith and their faithfulness through their hardships by making up for their losses and giving them more than they previously had before.
In the dictionary, the meaning of restoration is the action of returning something to a former owner, place, or condition. Words for restoration means to repair, fixing, mending, refurbishment, reconditioning, rehabilitation, rebuilding, reconstruction, remodeling, restoration, revamp, makeover, overhaul, upgrade, remold, reorganize, and redo. It is the act or process of returning something to its original condition by repairing it, cleaning it, the act of bringing back something that existed before, but even better and brighter.
It is also a returning of something that was taken or stolen — returning to a normal or healthy condition — the restoration and rebuilding of peace after war.
Now I want to tell you what the number 8 means. The number 8 is very significant. It is used in the Bible over 73 times. It is the symbol of resurrection and regeneration. In the Bible, Number 8 means New Beginnings. It denotes a new order or creation. It is a re-birthing of one’s life, purpose, and destiny. It is a new birth of being born again when you are resurrected to new life by the spirit into eternal life.
Since 8 comes after 7, the number of completeness signifies an end to something; it applies 8 is associated with the beginning of a new era or that of a new order. 8 is symbolic of New Life.

In your life right now, it is time to see all things being made new. What once was faded, black and white, are now returning in full color like a rainbow. It is your time to be restored through peace and rest after the war. Awards are awaiting you because you have endured the process and won the battle.

Time to rejuvenate your superpowers where you return to full vigor, seeing and feeling young again.

It is possible to redeem the time and to turn back the clock and start over again if you are willing to make the necessary changes no matter how uncomfortable and time-consuming it may seem to make the change.
Rejuvenate Tip #1 Time to make exercise fun. Find a hill you can climb. As you climb, envision each step that you take that you are taking back your superpowers, your health, your youthfulness, and zeal for life again. When you get to the top of that hill, take a deep breath in and say, I’m backkkk, and I have come, and I will conquer this new territory that I am entering into with great courage and confidence. I’m here with my tears and my fears, and I am moving on to victory! Bring a flag as a sign of Victory and wave it back and forth and then stick it in the ground to say, “I have taken ground, and I will possess the promise land of my now future.
Rejuvenate Tip #2 Pray while you are on that hill, drink some fresh water to cool you off and let the water flow in your soul to release all negative emotions that have caused toxins in your body. Tell those negative mountains to move out of your life. Think about what new things you want to do and dare to try, discover a renewed joy for the current blessings in your life.

In this new season of your life, it’s time to work with God and the angels to recreate the new you. Are you ready to bring your faith to a new level of trusting his Love? What may seem impossible is possible if you believe. Right now, you many see ashes, but God sees beauty. God is so powerful; he can take the dirt and breathe life into it and create man. He speaks and says, Let there be, and there is! Where there has been darkness now becomes light. God is the great creator of the heavens and the earth, but even more beautiful than his splendor and majesty of nature is his love for you. His greatest work in the universe is humankind. He created you in your mother’s womb supernaturally with one seed. Look how beautiful you are. There is no one like you. Now that is a miracle!
He never stops remaking and remolding you like a potter is to the clay. He is always with you, building you up and speaking to you through his word, nature, signs and wonders, and others around you. If you will be still and listen to his gentle voice of Love and guidance, he will show you the path towards life. He will also send others your way to help you to work on the restoration process to recreate you and make you better than you were ever before.
Recreate Tip #1 Call in your local area and see if there is a nature center where birds, butterflies, animals, flowers, and trees are thriving. When you get there, start walking, listen, and observe how God is taking care of nature with no effort. He’s in control. Anoint yourself with oil. Cedarwood has a warm woody balsamic fragrance that promotes relaxation. Also, you can spray this oil on your skin to protect you from insects. Fill up a shaker cup with purified water and lemon oil to drink to give you a boost of energy and cleansing. Reset your mind on the God of nature. Meditate your mind on Miracles that you see as you walk, you being the greatest miracle to see how far you have come. Miracles start happening in our lives when we choose to believe and have faith. Speak life over yourself as you walk and keep walking until you see the finished restoration process of a new life formed.
Recreate Tip #2 See if they have a butterfly garden there where you can see the beauty of the many colors of butterflies that are now birthed from their cacoon displaying freedom and now flying. Take the time to remember that butterfly was a caterpillar at one time, ugly and wrinkling, making its way on dirt, eating on the ground. The caterpillar hides for a time from everyone and is isolated to go through the transformation process to become not a better caterpillar but a butterfly, a brand new re-creation. Something he wasn’t before but now is.
Recreate Tip #3 When you get home study on the butterflies’ journey and see yourself in that process being prepared for your freedom to take flight. A butterfly, once it takes flight when it comes out of that cacoon, will never touch the ground again. That butterfly will always be flying and enjoying the beautiful flowers of the garden, spreading it’s goodness and Joy everywhere. Pray and ask God to wash your mind, your imagination, your emotions, and your body with fresh water. Take a bath in Epsom salt and lavender oil to soothe muscles and joints.

When it’s time in your life to revitalize, it means something is being restored back to your life with energy and vitality. Revitalizing adds newness and strength. Since vital things are alive, strong, and flourishing, when something gets revitalized, it is returned to health or life.
The word vitality is derived from vita or “life.” In the physical sense, this vitality refers to feeling healthy and capable and energetic. Psychologically, this state of aliveness brings a sense that one’s actions have meaning and purpose.
Vitality is the state of being full of life and energy; it is exuberant physical, mental, and emotional strength. It is also the capacity for survival, the power giving continuance of life. Emotional vitality was defined as a sense of positive energy, an ability to regulate behavior and emotions, and a feeling of engagement in life.

Pick any activity—stretching, running, dancing, even just walking, and do it often. You’ll reap some big benefits—including help your body detoxify. Your lymphatic system, a whole network of vessels, is the body’s drainage system and helps remove waste from the blood. But lymph doesn’t get pumped through the system by the heart the way blood does. Rather, it gets moved through other ways, including breathing and muscle contractions—which is why exercise is so critical to the process.
