Indigenous Intuitive Healer Ascends to Her Higher Self by Lifting Up Others

Daisha, also known as The Rooted Ascendant, at the Amado Khaya Healing House located on Native Pomo Land.

From the fire that created Islan Guahan, so too, comes the origin of Daisha, an Indigenous Intuitive Healer known as The Rooted Ascendant who aspires to live their truth as an Indigenous Woman in a capitalist world.

“It has always been important to me to stay grounded and rooted to the truth of who I am as I continually ascend toward my higher self,” Daisha said.

Daisha’s healing journey began in 2016 while living in North Carolina. At the time, she did not feel she was living her life’s purpose. That was until she discovered the words of Spanish painter Pablo Picasso: “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”

She began looking into community work and detoxing her mind and body with juicing, veganism, and intermittent fasting. In 2019, Daisha accepted a job opportunity in California that led to her path of alignment where they could dive deeper into their holistic health journey, utilizing body and energy work and intuitive massage in the process.

“Everything I do is intuitive and based on my connection with ancestors. My gift is like a light that I have inside me,” Daisha said. “When I meet people, I can connect with their energy and see into their past, present, and future. I can intuitively read where they’re at and know what they want. I can guide them onto an accelerating path of alignment to gain what they want and need to bring those different things to fruition in their life.”

As a healer, Daisha recognizes how trauma is attached to the body and must be identified in order to heal. Their ability to tap into a person’s energy and feel their trauma stems from their intuitive abilities as a healer and lived experiences as a child born from and into an environment surrounded by violence.

“By the time I was born, I had already experienced what most people do not experience in their lifetime,” Daisha said. “I’m able to identify and see people differently because of the ancestral trauma and all the adverse experiences and traumas I’ve survived at such a young age.”

Daisha defines healing as a process that happens every day and throughout the day. Embarking on a healing journey to mend past traumas requires an open mind and prioritizing one’s mental, physical, and emotional health.

“Prioritizing yourself is not negative. It’s powerful,” Daisha said. “Being centered and grounded in yourself will give you the ultimate direction. It’s your internal compass that will tell you exactly who you are and where you need to go.”

Looking ahead, Daisha wants to pursue higher education in feminist studies and policy and law while maintaining their practice of decolonization and offering their services free of charge.

“We’re taught in Western culture we’re not good enough until we obtain degrees, high paying six figure salaries, or have families and are “settled down,” or that it’s not enough to wake up and exist in the world,” Daisha said. “But we are enough. Our existence is meaningful and powerful far beyond the capacity of the human mind. We are the gift that keeps on giving every day.”
