Experience Freedom in 2017!

I hear so many of my healing clients and voice students yearning for freedom in their life. They have freedom as a value in their life but somehow are not fully embodying that value. They are, in a nutshell… Stuck.

I talk a lot about this in my latest blog entry on How to experience freedom by setting your authentic self free.

Authenticity is often underrated. It’s more than being honest with the world or speaking your mind. It’s about being honest with yourself and who you are and how you are being. There are many advantages to being authentic. Most importantly, you’ll no longer feel the need to change your words and actions to impress others. Being in authentic is EXHAUSTING! What other people think of you is none of your business. You can relax and be yourself.

Before you can be completely authentic, it’s important to know yourself. Who are you really? You need to develop a certain level of self-awareness. This includes clarity around your values and goals. This also includes developing a relationship with your higher self. Developing communication with your inner self and tuning into your body consciously on a regular basis. Authenticity becomes possible when you know what’s truly important to you as a person and as a spirit.

The first steps to take to experience freedom by setting your authentic self free are:

  1. Give up the need to appear perfect. When you don’t need to appear perfect, you’re in the position to be honest. If you are spending to much time thinking about this you are in your head or listening to you negative ego. If you are in your heart and doing what is authentic you are not hiding or covering up anything. You are transparent. No one can be perfect and honest at the same time. Avoid putting on a show for the rest of the world. You’ll only feel bad about yourself later. It’s okay to be less than spectacular. Be the best at being yourself.
  2. Know your values and live by them. If you know your core values and live by them consistently, you’re already doing well in the authenticity department. More importantly I want you to embody your values. When you are congruent with the energies or your values you actually begin to emit those energies to others. You can only do this my writing them down and referring back to them on a regular basis. Make it part of your daily practice. For myself some of my values include: Freedom, Self-Expression, Creativity, Light-heartedness, Love, Authenticity, Compassion, desire to learn and my list goes on….
  3. Notice when you’re not being authentic. It’s not easy to be authentic all the time. You might find yourself transforming based on the situation. A first date is a good example. Or going into a networking event trying to size up a new group. Are you being authentic or pretending to be someone you’re not? Are you able to share what you are about or do you clam up?

Give some serious thought to the tips above if you are ready to experience freedom by setting your authentic self free. Be willing to look deeply inside and know that you are the only one who can make the changes you desire to free yourself.

Here is wishing you a wonderful and prosperous 2017!


7 Tips for Enhancing Your Intuition

7 Tips for Enhancing Your Intuition

Hey goddess- Are you tapping into your intuition?

enhance your intuition

Why do some of us seem to have better intuition than others? Perhaps you believe that you lack intuition all together. Your mind is constantly giving you feedback. You’re either not receiving the message or you’re misinterpreting the signs because trust me, you will ALWAYS get an answer. When you’re uncertain about how to proceed, your intuition can provide valuable feedback if you take the time to tune in and listen to what it has to say.

It’s a mistake to only rely on logic when you have other tools at your disposal. Give your intuition a chance.

Learn to cultivate and use your intuition:

  1. Practice addressing and listening to your intuition. You probably already do this, just not at a sufficient level. When faced with multiple possibilities, give your intuition a chance to chime in. Start with little things. “Should I go to the movie with Sally or stay at home?” Ask yourself these types of questions as they come up in your life and notice the response you receive.
  2. Notice how your intuition communicates with you. It might be in the form of a verbal response. In many cases, you’ll get a feeling in your body that might take the form of a feeling in your stomach, chest, or head. It could reveal itself as a sense of calmness, knowing, or anxiety. You already experience these types of feelings. When faced with something you fear, your intuition is speaking to you. You already know how that feels. You also know when something feels “right.”
  3. Follow your intuition blindly in trivial matters. Show your intuition that you’re willing to listen. When faced with non-pressing matters, such as whether to have a cup of coffee or tea, just do what your intuition tells you. You might go for a joy ride and allow your intuition to choose all the turns. Pay attention to where you end up!
  4. Meditation helps. Your intuition might be talking to you, but you’re not getting the message. With everything else going on in your head, you might not even notice that your intuition is trying to communicate with you. Meditation can quiet the mind enough to notice what your intuition is saying.
  5. Spend time in a new environment. Your thoughts and feelings become habits that are partially dependent on your surroundings. You tend to think and feel a certain way at home. The same goes for work. Give your intuition room to maneuver by spending time someplace out of the ordinary for you. Time at the library, park, or coffee shop might open the lines of communication.
  6. Do something that engages your mind at a low level. Have you ever noticed that many of your best ideas come while taking a shower, driving down the highway, or coloring? It’s because your mind is partially occupied. You have to pay attention to what you’re doing, but your mind isn’t so engaged that it can’t wander a bit.
  7. Keep track of your results. In general, is your intuition providing helpful and accurate feedback? Notice the situations where the results are positive and those that are negative. You’ll be able to trust your intuition in more areas of your life over time.

It’s important to understand that your intuition is flawed. It’s flawed because of your fears and misconceptions. For example, you’ll never get a good vibe about spending time with someone new if you have social anxiety issues.

However, you already know a lot of things. And you already have a lot of life experience. The vast wisdom resulting from those two things is locked inside of you. Your intuition uses that information to guide you – if you’ll listen.

8 empowering beliefs to increase happiness

8 Empowering Beliefs to increase your happiness

Your experiences are shaped by your thinking. By adopting some of the beliefs below you can empower yourself to be happy. Even obstacles have a value when you can see it. You can develop convictions that will help you to feel happier and achieve more, regardless of the situation.

I am blessed
I am blessed

Consider these empowering beliefs that you can start using today to transform your life through the power of positive thinking.

  1. I understand my potential. You can achieve amazing results when you put your mind to it. Feel excited about reaching your true potential. I hereby grant you permission to let yourself be ALL that you can be.
  2. I count my blessings. List each thing that you have to be grateful for. Remember to include the smaller items, like warm socks, instagram or tart cranberriesExpressing your appreciation reminds you of how rich you are. I think you can find more of these each day if you put your attention on it,
  3. I learn from mistakes. You can make setbacks work for you by focusing on the lessons that they contain. Flubbing one job interview can teach you how to ace the next one. As a performing artist I cannot get upset over one word I forgot at the last concert. My mastery come in the form of how resilient I am and how well I recover.
  4. I find meaning in adversity. Tough times can be the most rewarding phase of your life. Know that you can emerge from any challenge with greater wisdom and courage. I hate to say it but that old adage of “that which does not kill you makes you stronger” has a tiny bit of truth to it! Look back at the obstacles you’ve already overcome, and reassure yourself that you can handle what’s ahead.
  5. I embrace change. Accept that life is a series of changes. Focus on the present moment, and prepare yourself to adapt to whatever circumstances come your way. If all else fails… practice this mantra: “change is good, change is good, change is good!”
  6. I dream big. Expand your wish list. Do not play small if you want big results. Setting demanding but attainable goals gives you adventures to look forward to each day.
  7. I practice forgiveness. Lighten your load by clearing away any resentment you’re holding onto from the past. Set reasonable boundaries while you respond with compassion when others disappoint you. While you are at it, Pardon yourself too. If you are like me you can be pretty rough on yourself at times and while that fuels you to get better you do want to temper it with a some of that golden compassion you tend to grant others.
  8. I give generously. Sharing your blessings makes you more powerful and joyful. Volunteer in your community and speak kindly to each person you meet today. Buy coffee for your co-workers or give your receptionist a flower.

Dream big and stay positive. You can achieve all of the goals you set out to achieve.


Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you or your business.

I look forward to hearing from you.



Aeriol’s top 10 tips to building online influence with Facebook Live

10 easy breezy tips to get started building online influence with social media: Facebook Live

Those of you who may know me personally know that I am a Social Media Evangelist and a bit of an Audio- Visual geek! lol. well, I just made that up but the truth of the matter is I absolutely LOVE Facebook and I am currently immersing myself in Instagram as well. Both of these Social Media Platforms have a video function which is great news for business’s who would like to build their online visibility and influence.

Instagram currently lets you take or upload short videos up to 60 seconds long. This is great in and of itself but I see this as interesting opportunity to create a promotional buzz to promote longer videos and host video shows on FB live. I see both these platforms (both owned by Facebook coincidentally) really working together to support each other in social media marketing and influence building.

Today I wanted to give you just a couple tips on getting your FB Live Broadcast ready to go. Here are 10 easy breezy steps to get you started:

  1. Have a script or outline for your topic. I can’t stress this enough- I know we all think we can be impromptu but you are going to want to have at least a an outline to keep you on track to make sure you don’t wast any of your broadcast time. Try to have bulleted points or 3-5 “hot tips” that you can share and then talk about a little more in depth to expand.
  2. Ideally you should do a preliminary sound check and also check your lighting and surroundings on your camera so you can see how you look before shooting. This ensures quality picture that your audience will enjoy.
  3. Log into your Facebook account on your phone from your profile, business page or group depending on who you want to see your video.
  4. Touch the “Publish” icon to create your video post.
  5. Touch the “Live Video” icon.
  6. Write a super juicy title… (to see more tips please click link)

Ascended Master Oracle Reading by Aeriol

Ascended Master Oracle Reading by Aeriol

For this month’s New Moon Manifestation Reading I am using the Ascended Master Oracle Deck by Doreen Virtue.

Here are a few suggestions to create the sacred space of a New Moon Manifestation reading:

  1. Have an intention. An intention is different than a question. One can use questions to gather information that can get to a desired outcome. But keep in mind that it is not the same as asking a question. An intention is a desired result. For example: healing. Or perhaps: clarity. knowledge. peace. It is what energy or state of being you want to draw forth in your life. The New Moon is a perfect time to set manifestation intentions.
  2. Have a an energetic protocol to ground yourself and to connect with your higher self.
  3. Have energetic support: Call in your Angels, Healing Masters and Spiritual Guides across time and space and ask that the information you receive be of the highest purity and clarity and of the greatest good of all concerned.
  4. Have Fun!

is our Thriving Woman of the Week!

Aeriol Headshot

How long have you been in business? I have been a Spiritual Entrepreneur and Intuitive Healing Artist since 1994. I play
in the areas of Holistic Heath as well as Music and Arts Education. My Healing Center Reiki Angel Intuitive Arts has been open since June of 2014.

Why did you choose to start this business? I received a 30 day notice at the space I was running my Reiki Angel Massage Practice because the Acupuncturist whose space I was subletting was expanding her business. My Reiki Angel Massage practice had been very successful for me and was voted “best” massage in Silicon Valley by the San Jose Mercury News four times. I REALLY did not want to move! Not to mention the fact that I had just remodeled a new home so that my mother who had just broken her hip could move in with me literally the same weekend I was supposed to be out of the space. I was at a crossroads of whether or not to continue. I remembered a compelling vision that I had for myself when visiting a Medicine Woman friend of Mine in Mount Shasta in 1998. I had seen myself having a Healing Center and speaking at retreats in various locations. Upon having this thought I looked up and realized that the opportunity was right in front of me…literally! I was in my car in the parking lot of my old space and I looked up to the “for lease” sign on the other side of the parking lot. Voila! My
healing center.

What solutions does your business provide? Space really. In my vision I just saw my healing center as a sacred gathering and healing site not only for myself but for many practitioners, therapists, healers, teachers etc.
I run my Reiki Angel Healing Practice and do Intuitive Consultations at the Center. I hosted 36 events at the center last year! Continue reading Aeriol Ascher

New Moon Manifestation Reading May 2016

New Moon Manifestation Reading May 2016

I am so excited to post the New Moon Manifestation reading this month! For anyone who has been looking at our monthly readings you will notice that one of the Goddess Cards from last month shows up in our reading again this month!

I like to use the Goddess Guidance Oracle Deck by Doreen Virtue when I am wanting the practical kind of advice that you would get from a good girlfriend. You can always count on the Goddess Oracle Deck to provide deep and soulful guidance in tangible and practical ways that you can apply in your everyday life in order to manifest exactly what your heart desires.

The New Moon is a time to set intentions and delve into our subconscious minds in order to bring forth new creations. Intentions set on the new moon set into action our innate powers of manifestation. Take time to create sacred space and set your desired intentions on this New Moon and allow your angels, healing masters and goddess guides light the way to your Heart’s Desire.
