Jodi ChapmanJodi Chapman is passionate about helping others reconnect with their soul. After experiencing a spiritual awakening in 2010, she went from being a complete skeptic to a believer in miracles. She now lives her life with love and faith in the driver’s seat, and she hopes to leave a trail of inspiration wherever she goes. She believes that we each have the ability to hear our soul’s whisper and create our best lives. 

What does being an Everyday Goddess mean to you? 

It means I am comfortable in my own femininity. It means I live an empowered life that blends spirituality with practicality. It means that I take time each day to reconnect with my soul, while still embracing this life here on Earth. (This artwork sums it up.)

Quote from Jodi Chapman

At what age did you awaken to the presence of the Divine Feminine and would you describe it as a sudden awakening or a gentle unfolding?

It's definitely been a gentle unfolding for me that continues to this day. I was molested as a child, and so I stepped out of my body and my femininity for many years. As an adult, it's been a slow process of reclaiming my body as my own and loving myself enough to embrace my own femininity. It's in the small moments of enjoying my femininity that get to awaken a bit more: painting my toenails, snuggling with my cats, brushing my hair, putting on a cute outfit, etc. It's in these moments that I feel so grateful to be a woman and to be brave enough to step into my own femininity again. 

What roles in your life had to transform in order for you to live authentically?

I needed to believe that I was worthy of sharing my true self with the world. I had to believe that my authentic self was good enough – that I didn't need to try to be something more. So I needed to let go of any belief that was no longer holding this authentic vision. What I love is that the more I showed up authentically, the more I was embraced by others. That was such beautiful confirmation for me to continue doing so.

What have been some of the greatest inner gifts you’ve experienced since stepping into your feminine power?

While this is definitely still a process for me, I will say that I'm feeling more comfortable in my own skin. I love being a woman. I love embracing each part of myself and seeing all of my traits as blessings. I've also found that stepping into my own feminine power gives others permission to do the same – it's a beautiful ripple effect. 

Can you share some of your favorite sacred feminine rituals?

I absolutely love my soulful writing ritual. I go into my office and close the door. I light a candle, and I pull either an Angel card or a Soul Clarity card. I open up a Word file and place my hands on the keyboard. I close my eyes and let my spirit guides know that I'm ready to listen. And then I begin to type whatever comes through in that moment. Oftentimes, I'll close my eyes and will only open them when the message has stopped. It's such a great collaboration, and it's always such a magical experience.

I also recently started taking dark showers. I'm very sensitive, and sometimes by the end of the day, I feel pretty drained from all of the energy that I've taken in. And so I've found that stepping into a hot shower in a pitch-black bathroom is a wonderful way to allow the cleansing water to pour over me and take with it all of the energy that isn't mine. It washes the day down the drain, so that I'm left with a clean slate before I go to sleep. It's a great way to lovingly say goodbye to the day.

Is there a particular Goddess that you are intimately drawn to and why?

I am inspired by any woman who has stepped into her power and is living from that divine source. It's not so much what they're doing – it's their essence. You can sense that they are full and at peace.

Is there a personal message that you would like to share with women? 

You officially have permission to be yourself. Period. So often, we think we have to be something or do something or get somewhere or have something before we can be okay with ourselves – before we can truly love ourselves. What if we dropped all of the conditions that we have placed upon ourselves, took a deep breath in, and bravely shared where and who we are right now with the world? How empowering would that feel? That's what I wish for all of us.
