We had the good fortune of connecting with Daisy Draper and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Daisy, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risk taking is the ultimate action of high self worth. When you take divinely inspired action, which is normally a risk of some sort, you are conveying that you have ultimate trust in yourself and the unseen forces that exist around us. It’s the ability to tell society to f*ck off, rebel against constructs that keep us caged in imaginary safety, and choose yourself above all fear.

My entire life has been risk after the risk. I joined the Army when I was 17 years old so I could obtain a college degree. I took a risk because I knew I wanted more. After college and finishing my time in the service, I ended up in an emotionally abusive dynamic with my partner at the time. Not only was my partner emotionally taking advantage of me, my friends challenged my boundaries and did not fully see nor accept me for who I was. This led to the decision/risk of leaving everything behind to move to Los Angeles. I left with nothing but two suitcases and less than $500 to my name.

Fast forward to today, I’m exactly where I’ve always dreamed of being. After overcoming homelessness, illness and psychological abuse, I’m living in alignment with my highest self. I’m finally releasing my debut single, “Did You Think,” as my first solo musical project this Summer of 2021.

If you’re faced with a risk that could ultimately lead to everything you’ve ever wanted – always choose yourself. No matter the gut-wrenching fear and anxiousness it may cause, it is worth every moment because you WILL make it to the other side. There are powerful forces that want us all to succeed and reap the absolute bliss of living in alignment with our divine blueprints.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a Spiritual Pop Artist and Intuitive Healer! This means I merge spirituality with pop music, and inspire others to expand into their most authentic, divine selves. As an Intuitive Healer and Akashic Channeler, I seek to make spirituality more “modern” and palatable. By expressing sincere vulnerability in my music and openly discussing topics such as shadow and inner child work, my goal is to create a path to help people awaken to their personal truth, wisdom and divinity.

​I discovered the significance of emotional and energetic work through my deep interpersonal relationship with illness. I found I was able to “feel” the trauma and energetic imbalance that contributed to my dis-ease. Through inner child therapy, shadow work and channeling the Akashic Records, I was able to deepen my practice and spiritual gifts. We all have the ability to access our inner healer by slowing down, practicing awareness and alchemizing wounds that present themselves. I now work with many clients to help them radically transform their lives and strengthen their intuitive abilities.

My debut single, “Did You Think,” will be released this Summer of 2021 as well as my workshop series “Earth Angel School.” This is a four-part module series that will touch upon the steps of healing and navigating a spiritual awakening (or what is often referred to as “The Dark Night of the Soul”). These workshops will be collaborations with other healers in my community that have helped me heal and ascend, so you won’t want to miss it! I also love mentoring people on an intimate level and work 1:1 with clients utilizing the Akashic Records or tarot.

Overall, my mission is to help facilitate higher ascension and inspire others to embody their most free and authentic expression. Through remembering our sovereignty and unity with the Universe, we can embody the “Earth Angel” archetype (or in other words our most authentic, whole selves). My work is a means to help people awaken to their personal truth, wisdom and divinity.​

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My favorite spots in LA would have to be Cafe Gratitude in Venice, Lechuza Beach in Malibu, and JuneShine in Santa Monica (basic, I know). I am OBSESSED with health and wellness, and I love love love the energy of the ocean. If someone were to stay with me for a trip, they’d have to be prepared for lots of organic food and beach lounging. I also enjoy live music (which is coming back soon!). I’d definitely recommend checking out local performances for inspiration and to support my community of talented artists!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Soooo many people have helped me on this journey, but I’m going to shoutout three powerful healers that have made the most impact on my journey of self love and self reclamation.

1. Chelsea Hayden @hearthofthesoul
This extraordinary goddess is my absolute best friend and mentor. She is a POWERFUL divine priestess healer and divine feminine embodiment leader. She is reiki attuned and deeply, deeply intuitive. She specializes in the topics of grief and helping women (and men) move through transitional periods while learning to love every aspect of their existence. This woman has seen me at some of my lowest moments, and she has never given up on me. Her mentorship and unconditional love has helped me become the woman I am today. I love you Chelsea!

2. Nicole Torres @ouroboros.healing
This angelic goddess queen is also my dear friend and a mentor of mine. I worked 1:1 with Nicole for 5 months after enduring one of the most traumatic heartbreaks I’ve ever experienced. Nicole taught me the foundations of self love and self reclamation, as well as the ability to identify my trauma based patterning that no longer served my highest path. Nicole is an intuitive energy healer that helps women transform and HEAL after leaving toxic relationships. I highly recommend her 1:1 sessions and healing programs.

3. Kaia Ra @kaiaraofficial
One of my biggest expanders in the spiritual community, this earth angel warrior’s work has really transformed my life and my perception of the universe. I highly recommend everyone read a copy of her visionary sacred text, “The Sophia Code.”
