An interview with Spiritual Life Coach Jordii Chevalier
I recently had the honor of interviewing Jordii Chevalier, a passionate Certified Spiritual Life Coach with a focus on life transitions. Jordii specializes in helping people navigate their path through life-changing events such as grief, career changes, divorce, and those in the LGBQ Community. Jordii guides her clients through the process of rediscovering themselves by empowering them to speak their truth and helping them overcome blocks, fears, and limiting beliefs, driven by the lessons that Jordii herself has gathered in her own journey of self-discovery.
Jordii tells us of her unexpected journey from corporate finance, through divorce and depression, to discovering her life’s purpose.
Like many of us, Jordii’s path was not linear, easy, or always perfect, but it was the awakening she needed to start living a fulfilled, abundant life in service to spirit. This is a story that demonstrates so many incredible life lessons from picking up on the signs that point towards your life purpose, the reasons we ignore these signs, and the tools that help you break the pattern of a life that is not aligned to you.
What called you to be a spiritual life coach?
Life happened to me. And as I went through the journey, I realized I’m not alone in this and a lot of people experienced the same things that I did, so what led me here was living it myself and realizing that people are in pain and it’s a lot easier to walk in that with someone else.
What were you doing before you were a spiritual life coach?
I was in the financial industry. I was a mortgage loan processor for about seven years. Very successful, great money, but it was a really masculine environment. So when I started healing and trying to find myself, I realized it wasn’t in alignment with me.
When you were making that shift did it seem possible?
Oh my gosh no. No, no, no. I was a completely different person. I was a go-getter, a top performer working 14, 16 hour days, weekends, and holidays. I couldn’t imagine a life where I had time, time to slow down, time to meditate.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Well, I grew up very traditional. I’m from the Dominican Republic. I wanted to be a mom and have kids, and I got married very young at 21 years old. Marriage was not my forte. It was a very toxic relationship and I realized that I didn’t really have any passions.
I didn’t really have a dream until later in my twenties. I felt like there was a certain point in my twenties when my life started happening quickly and I was just kind of catching up. And then when I looked back and realized what it became, it was my dream all along – to help other people, to teach other people, and just give love.
Looking back at your life were there signs pointing to your life’s calling?
Oh, always. Yeah. I went to college, I started wanting to be a Spanish teacher. Then I transitioned into psychology. I was passionate about it, but it was too emotionally draining for me. When you look at my career today, it encompasses all three parts.
I am a teacher, I focus on the mind and the soul. And then I also take pride in the business aspect.
So there were always signs, and all of my skills aligned with what I do now.
I just didn’t think it was a possibility, you grow up wanting the nine to five and you think that when you have that, you made it… and you’re unhappy. You go to bed stressed to wake up stressed. You’re on anxiety medication.
Somebody sold me a dream that wasn’t mine.
And I woke up one day like, how was this my life? So there were signs. I just didn’t know how to read them. I followed the pattern of what was put in front of me.
You said you felt led through life – can you explain?
Well, let’s go back to my divorce. I was 26 years old. At this point, I had been married five and a half years. And coming out of that, I was really unhappy.
People would ask me, Hey, what do you like?
I had no idea.
What do you like to eat?
I don’t know.
Do you like to travel?
I don’t know.
I realized I was a 26-year-old who didn’t know what I like to do, what I like to eat, where I like to go.
I’m in this career, I’m working super hard trying to get out of debt, and it started happening slowly at first, meaning I was able to get out of debt, and then I was able to start enjoying reading and getting into self-help books. And then I would find something in a book that led me to another thing.
And then I heard about “a life purpose” and I was like, Ooh, I probably have one of those!
So it started with moving to Florida, having depression, and finding a spiritual teacher. I felt like I was rediscovering myself, and as I was doing that, there were nudges, “The life purpose”, That was literally the name of the Institute where I got certified!
I hit probably the lowest point in my depression, but also my wake-up call when everything crumbled.
And at this point, I signed up to become a life coach. I realized that I was a natural and I loved it. I’ve always wanted to save people, but it was uninvited, telling people what to do. But with coaching people wanted it. They were asking me. And then I started to realize I was meant to be doing that all along, but it took my own healing. It took my own breaking down for me to discover what was inside because I had been conditioned for so long.
But the truth is I didn’t really get to experience me until I lost everything.
And then when I did, I rebuilt it from the heart. It came from a book or a person or a conversation, and one thing led to another and here we are.
My life completely changed for the better.
Jordii’s story is one that really speaks to my heart, there are many correlations between this and my own (if you haven’t yet listened to Answer Your Unique Calling: Why I Answered my calling and you should too, you can do so HERE).
