RE-Train: Dream-Sizing Your Mind

By on September 3, 2013

By Vicki Norris –

I am in the process of retraining my brain for the expansion.

You see, here at Restoring Order, we are in a transition. We are becoming more of what we were meant to be. We are graduating up into maturity and fullness.

We are still – with enormity of mission – helping people reclaim their household and their work.

And we have been becoming more for a quite some time.

We have moved into helping people reclaim their soul, their health, and their finances. We are now speaking into areas that we’ve gained the experience to restore. Our scope of restoration has expanded. We are beginning to see dreams move from the ethereal into the now.

And whenever transition happens, our minds must shift lest we get stuck dragging the old into the new.

In the old model, we knew what to expect. We knew what worked and didn’t work. We had a rhythm.

And now, we are learning new dance steps – sometimes clumsily at first – to move to an expanded score of music.

I am choosing to retrain my mind as this transition season progresses.

I’ve always loved ideas and dreamed B-I-G, so I’m not opposed to change. It’s just that I sense this particular change must be handled in a profoundly different way than change from the past.

There will be no striving, no chasing, no presupposing. There will be no morphing to the newer, bigger mold.

Instead, this change will come by looking up, tuning in, and letting it flow on in.

I am determined to move OUT OF “chronos” time (chronological time) where things change due to the marching of time or the forcing of prerogatives – and into “kairos” time (the fullness of time). The kairos moment does not come because we forced it or positioned all the pieces perfectly; it comes because we rightly perceived it, agreed with it, and stepped into it.

I am having to retrain my mind to take the lid off of what is possible for us and for Restoring Order and for you. I am retraining my thinking to make room for an unlimited scope.

Instead of thinking just about an expansion of products and services as seen in traditional business growth, I am opening up my grey matter to make room for a viral expansion.

1. I see an army of those who’ve been restored helping to restore others.

2. I see myself investing my time creating training and inspiration that will equip the masses to reclaim what they gave away. (I see giant people unfurling and standing up from their capped existence stepping out into the world and reclaiming what is rightfully theirs.)

3. We’re perceiving that many will be invited into this organism that is Restoring Order – that those with common DNA will come and participate in helping the world reclaim their lives.

4. We’re preparing to lead all who will come into their purpose and priorities. (We will soon be offering a series that’s a treasure hunt to help people discover their purpose in life!)

In retraining my mind, however, I am working against what’s natural, I must admit. We have a way as humans of getting used to “the way things are”. Even if we think about things changing, we tend to chart an “acceptable course” for that growth. We allow our minds to expand linearly or horizontally or vertically – to known outcomes, to things we’ve seen before.

But if there’s one thing I know, it’s that our family and greater household- through Restoring Order – is called to pioneer what has never been seen.

We are pulling people from the bondage of anything that separates them from the abundant life….but not just so that they can exit the chaos. We see restored people returning to the original intent for their lives – to that beautiful garden where there is perfect order and wholeness in every area of life. And we see those garden dwellers becoming tour guides leading weary travelers back to the garden that they’ve discovered and enjoy.

Retraining our minds to expand, to refuse limits, and to perceive the design of things – this is the work of those dedicated to living nothing but the victorious life.

When you retrain your mind to expand to the dreams planted in you, you will discover that those dreams actually move toward you rather than you having to chase them.

Will you join me in dream-sizing our minds?
