The story behind the logo

Behind The Logo… June 2020
I thought it may be nice to know the story behind the logo and to share my journey.
I have been on quite a journey over the last year. First, leaving the world of dentistry, after 23 years in February, then loosing another job, working in a local Spa, within the same week, closely followed by COVID-19 and understandably, having to close my doors. From everything to nothing, I asked the universe for a less busy diary, be careful what you wish for!
It has been a strange time and quite a journey we are all on collectively. I am so grateful for the time I’ve had with family and to be able to spend so much time in nature has truly been a blessing. It’s been a huge thing for us all to adjust to, but I have been happy to hear stories of people reconnecting with what they love, be that gardening, reading, walking, painting, whatever lights you up and feeds your soul. It's so important for us to keep our mental health bank topped up, so that we can evolve and bend to the ever-changing things that have been affecting us all.
I invested in a wonderful soulpreneur coach at the back end of 2019 and been doing the soul work I needed to do, to come into my own flow. I changed my business name to Karen Bradley, Intuitive Guide as I feel the name encompasses everything I do. When I first started the process I was unsure about using my own name for my brand (I feared looking self-important, a common misconception) but as I soon learnt, I needed to believe in me and be my most unapologetic authentic self, something I teach my clients. I needed to step into my name and own it!
The logo needed to represent me and everything I do. I feel blessed to possess a calm and peaceful nature and I love the peace of a seated Buddha, so that was very natural for me to choose. Then, I wanted to add elements of my native American heritage, (my maternal Grandfather,) and show my intuitive spiritual side. This is my way of respecting my ancestors and allowing the flow of my innate intuition to be there in the background, surrounding the seated Buddha in support.
Feathers represent freedom, transcendence, and communication with spiritual realms. Like a bird that soars through the boundless sky and has a view of all things from above, feathers symbolise the ability to transcend and move beyond mental barriers and limitations, to see the larger picture and understand what really matters. To me, it’s a representation of how I feel when I am in flow, treating and supporting my clients, at peace.
And so it is, Karen x
