The healing power of telling your story

When you struggle guilt and regret it can seem like you are in a cage. You lock yourself in that cage day after day when you can’t move past damage you’ve done or the damage others have done to you. What if you could experience freedom from carrying all that pain? Mindie Kniss carried around her fair share of guilt and regret. She made some poor financial decisions when she was younger and owned a home that she rented out to a family. Since that incident, Mindie carried around the baggage of regret. This year she found freedom from that pain by starting to tell the story. The lessons she has learned from this experience are life changing.

The Four Heart Keys

How do you find your deepest identity and purpose? Is there a way to identify important pillars or keys to live by? Mindie Kniss discovered “Four Heart Keys” and she would like to share them with as many people as possible. The “Four Heart Keys” are:

  1. Gratitude and Appreciation. Mindie says Tony is a HUGE example of living a life centered on gratitude. She also explains that getting to gratitude is a huge way to get out of your own head and to feel the emotion of the heart space.
  2. Love. Love, not in that cheesy “Hallmark” or even in a romantic sense. Mindie teaches this love as a primal force of the universe that can be a driver toward our destiny. A guide on that path toward our purpose.
  3. Forgiveness. This is all about clearing out all of that old energetic gunk and being able to reclaim your energy. Instead of letting the past pain and regret weigh you down, embrace forgiveness.
  4. Trust. Trust knowing you are on the right path. Trust knowing you are always guided by your heart or by a higher power. Stay on the path of trust

What is “Heart Intelligence?”

In our culture, we focus on the role of the mind. Your brain calls all the shots, it is the center of all decision making. With all the focus on the brain, where does that leave the heart? What about “Heart intelligence?” Heart intelligence is the concept of shifting your focus from running all your decisions through your intellect and allowing your heart to have some influence. It’s allowing your heart to call the shots on things like relationships and deciding what passions in life to pursue. The role of the heart is expansive, it not only impacts the flow of our body, it can have effects on others as well. Mindie Kniss wrote her dissertation on “Heart intelligence.” She brings all her insights and knowledge to share on this episode of Entrepreneur Unplugged, you don’t want to miss it!
