Happy 2-Year Birthday to Soul Speak!

ss-birthdayI am so excited that we get to share this special day together! Soul Speak turns 2 today! :)

I am so happy that you’re here to celebrate with me. I know without a doubt that it wouldn’t have become this amazing community without your support. I know that it wouldn’t be this living and breathing space without your love and your comments and your interaction.


I wanted to thank you face-to-face. I really felt that simply writing “thank you” just wouldn’t be enough. So I recorded a video especially for you. I hope you enjoy it!

(If you are reading this via email or a reader, please click here to watch the video.)

In the video, I ask three questions that I would love for you to answer below. Connecting with others on the soul level is one of my favorite things to do, and I definitely want to know what lights up your heart, what you’re passionate about, and what your soul shares with you when you slow down and listen to it.

Here are the questions:

1. What does your soul want you to know?

2. What makes your soul sing?

3. What dream are you ready to leap into?

(I go into detail about each question in the video.)

Feel free to answer all of them or just choose the one that speaks to you in this moment. And then leave your answer below. It will be a wonderful way not just for me to get to know you better but also for each of you to get to know each other, too! I can’t wait to read your answers!

Thank you so much for sharing this space with me. I am forever grateful to each of you, and I am excited to see what the future holds for us all!

Please help celebrate Soul Speak’s birthday by commenting and sharing this post on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. Congratulations, Jodi! Two year milestone and many more to come. ♥
    Your video was terrific. I like what you said about dreams. My song is evolving, right now it’s in a sleeper stage, I’m afraid. But I know it’s going to wake up and tell me how to get in tune. Thank you so much. ♥

    • Thanks so much, Gloria! :)
      I can’t wait to hear about your dreams – be sure to come back and share them with me when they become more clear. I know that we all have them, and sometimes all it takes is giving ourselves permission to dream, which allows them to surface. Big hug to you!

  2. Wow two years ! congratulations :~)

    what does my soul want me to know ? that I truly am surrounded and supported by an amazing sea of love, because I am that love and it radiates from me, through me, to me constantly ♥

    What makes my soul sing ? love in every shape and form, the more I look the more I see, the more I sing.

    What dream am I ready to jump into ? Well I’m about to live one.. taking 6 weeks off work, and am going to spend 4 weeks by myself driving and going for walks all over Ireland, something I’ve always wanted to do but hadn’t because I hadn’t found someone to do it with, and all the while when I’d see something about Ireland I’d sigh and feel that pull of soul that kept saying, ” come home ” so.. am I afraid ? nope ! excited as all hell, everytime fear comes up I remind it how loved we are, how much we’ve always wanted to do this, and most importantly how good I am at listening.

    thank you for asking
    thank you for sharing :~)
    and here’s to another day of celebrating life and soul

  3. I am truly blessed to be part of this community. I just love, love, love your video, and for some reason I was’nt going to watch it (too many things to do) lol …. so what does my soul want me to know? Leap, take that leap of faith, just do it. You say it so well, “Say yes to life”. Beyond that I’m not sure but I do know that I was suppose to watch your video, so thank you Jodi Chapman for speaking to my soul. Happy birthday Soul Speak.

    Much love from a sunny Africa.

    • Hi Theresa! Thank you so much for your kind words – I’m so glad you watched the video. I do that, too – think that I don’t always have time. So I’m extra glad that you did! And I’m so happy that you’re here – celebrating this moment with me! I just love that your soul is asking you to leap! So now each time you’re ready to leap, and you have that doubt creep up and wonder if it’s really such a great idea after all, you can come back to this knowing inside and remember that your soul is supporting you each step of the way. I’m so excited for you! Big hug!

  6. Congratulations on 2 years.
    I’m not sure yet what my soul wants me to know, but I’m working on it.
    My soul sings quite a lot of the time, when I’m out walking with the dog, listening to music, watching a sunrise or sunset, watching the birds feeding in the garden…………….
    I don’t know what my dreams are yet but I’m working on them as well.
    I’m just letting my soul sing along as it wants and try to listen to what it’s saying and hope I understand when it says something important.
    Thanks again for your blog. I really enjoy it.

  7. Congratulations, sweet Jodi – what a milestone and journey! Happy, happy 2nd birthday, Soul Speak!!!

    Here are my answers, which won’t surprise you:

    – My soul wants me to know that I am amazing EXACTLY as I am.
    – My soul sings when I connect and share with like-minded souls. And when I make time for fun!
    – The big dream I’m ready to leap into? Sharing my voice on a much larger scale with the world.

    Love to you!
