In today’s competitive business world, challenges to the integrity of a brand are part of the journey. Working with your brand’s spirit guides can help in a number of ways.
Benevolent Sacred Space Holding and Protection
To stay on a path that is true to you, it is especially important to keep the energy vibration of your brand as you set it and protected. Spirit guides love the job of sacred space holding for a brand. To call in these type of Spirit Guides, simply decide what vibrations you would like to have in the sacred space that is your brand–ie joy, peace, love, laughter–and then ask the Divine for benevolent spirit guides to uphold and protect it as such.
Experience Affinity with Inspirational Muses
The idea for your brand probably came to you in a moment of inspiration, perhaps even from an inspirational muse which is a type of spirit guide. Inspirational muses are co-creators for whom you have great affinity. Affinity is the fourth chakra ability to experience universal oneness with yourself, others and the world. When you are in affinity with your brand’s spirit guides, your heart sings as you work and you naturally attract those who also have an affinity for what you are creating.
I became aware of the Aspen Oracle spirit guides about two years in and ever since, working “on the business” (something many entrepreneurs dread) has never been so much fun! Whether I am working on financials, the website or a fun new design, my heart sings. Some of what they have to say even inspired the Aspen Oracle Cards and Seasonal Gatherings.
Clear Confusion and Receive Guidance One Step and Time
Confusion can affect the creative process of establishing and growing your brand. Confusion is that tangled web of being aware of so many possibilities but not knowing which is best to choose. Confusion leads to an incessant need to have it all figured out which ultimately creates either being frozen or over-acting like a chicken with its head cut off. If you notice yourself in the downward spiral of confusion, it is a good time to ask your spirit guides for some clarity. Since they are not in “it” they are able to direct from a birds-eye view, giving you answers one step at a time.
The Spiritual Women Leaders Equinox Gathering that Aspen Oracle sponsored is an example of allowing spirit guides to light the way. The two women and I who co-created the event all received messages from our spirit guides about coming together to create the brand and event. Throughout the entire planning process, we consulted the spirit guides who were in support of it. They helped guide us through challenges to create a beneficial gathering for many. The Spiritual Women Leaders event was also where the Aspen Oracle Seasonal Gatherings and Manifesto, which continues to light the way for Aspen Oracle, was birthed.
Prioritize and Re-frame Failures as Success
On the journey of clearly defining and staying true to your brand, it is normal to have things not work out as you once thought they might. Your Spirit Guides can help you focus on what really matters which includes the lessons you learn along they way and how those ultimately are a form of success.
The creation of Tough Shit Tarot: A Deck of Rude Awakenings is an example of being led to deeper meaning by Archangel Metatron. Archangel Metatron is a spirit guide who helps anyone who asks. He specializes in helping people get their priorities straight as well as to clear invalidation and remove blocks which he does with his sacred geometry cube (pictured here).
Tough Shit Tarot was birthed after the author, Nami, and I went to give readings at an event in hopes of sharing our gifts with new clients. When no one came to us for a reading at the event, we decided to choose a card for ourselves from the Indigo Angel Oracle by Charles Virtue. What we received was a message from Archangel Metatron and later that night the deck was written by Nami. From there, Nami and I created it as we learned many lessons. Over and over again, we have prioritized letting Spirit guide despite any challenges and roadblocks.
