Heartset Coaching by Kemetia ‘Kem’ Foley
What does heartset mean to you?
Heartset means accepting and sharing my experiences ~ the good and the bad, knowing it is serving a higher purpose.
I am often reminded that acceptance doesn’t mean I have to like what is happening or what I see. To me it means that I can keep these experiences in context, in perspective. Sharing my stories, my experience with others is the center of heartset for me.
How does heartset make mindset easier?
The world is filled with strong-willed, highly-opinionated people. Often their energy can sway others, cause them to doubt their own mindset.
My heartset allows me to remember that I don’t have to agree with others, I can honor my own perspective and point of view without vilifying yours. I don’t have to diminish my own beliefs to gain the approval of others.
It allows me to step back from a judgmental mindset, recognizing that each person — including me! — has their own journey to travel. It allows me to get away from derisive self-talk and ponder new and different perspectives.
How can people practice heartset?
Practicing heartset requires two things: Quiet and Questions.
When the anxiety or challenge arises, try to take a moment of quiet and not immediately jump in to take action. Instead, in the moment of quiet – ask yourself:
Why do I feel this way? Or, what is my motivation here? Am I operating out of my own trusted heartset or am I reacting to discomfort?
I try to take an hour of quiet in the morning to ask a great universal spirit to help me hear and heed my internal voice. If I need to during the day, I step outside, and take three long, deep breaths and repeat to myself, “I know who I am. I know who I want to be, I know I can accept this moment exactly as it unfolds.”
At the end of the day, I journal on the topic of what was good about my day.
What is the key to a limitless mindset?
Operating from a mindset of hope, not fear, is the key to a limitless mindset. There are so many things out of our control on our spinning blue marble. What we can do is choose how we approach each moment, each person.
If we are diligent in keeping a spirit and mindset of belief in the good, belief that all will be as it will, then fear of the unknown and unresolved, is diminished.
