Heart of the Soul

A Heartfelt Invitation

Beautiful Soul - Jodi ChapmanWelcome to my new blog, Heart of the Soul! I’m Jodi Chapman, and I’m so excited to join the Beliefnet family.

I wanted to start by sharing my intention for this blog and then extend an invitation to you.

I believe that we all are made from love and that we all have a beautiful soul at our core – a part of us that is heart-centered and wise and connected to everything in the universe.


And oftentimes, that all-knowing and all-loving part of us gets covered up by all of the urgencies of life – all of the have tos and should dos. This beautiful part of us gets forgotten due to all of the pain that we have suffered and all of the disappointment that we have experienced throughout our life. Sometimes we have gotten so far away from our essence that we can feel completely disconnected from ourselves and also from our life.

This is definitely how I felt not that long ago. I felt like I was walking through my life on autopilot. I didn’t feel connected to anything, especially not my soul or the universe. I was just trying to get through each day – and sometimes even that was a struggle.

Three years ago, I received a helping hand. Someone reached out and helped me see that everything was going to be okay. He helped me realize that I was a beautiful part of a much bigger, absolutely loving whole. He helped me realize that it was safe to open my heart and let love in. He helped me see that I could trust myself, others, and the universe. He helped pull me out of the disconnect and into the light.


And that’s what I want to offer to you through this column: a helping hand.

I would love to offer inspiration and guidance and support and love. I would love to offer you an invitation to join me in the light. To know that you are so worthy of living a life that you are excited about, that feeds you, that you feel is a directly reflection of who you are – at the soul level.

I would love to walk this journey together. I would be honored.

We’re so powerful on our own, but we’re even more powerful when we come together. 

I hope this blog becomes a space of healing and love for you. I hope it helps you reconnect with your beautiful soul. I hope that it helps you see just how amazing you truly are.


I look forward to sharing and growing together.
