I used to journal almost every day from my preteen years through my first year of graduate school. And then life took over and my journaling practice faded. I discovered Mari McCarthy and her Create Write Now community at a time in my early adulthood that I felt like I was losing myself. Journaling, with the assistance of Mari's prompts, brought me back to my authentic self. And when I lost my way again, I knew I could return to my journal for guidance. Now, after one of the most dramatic life changes one can experience, parenthood, I find myself in need of a journaling practice more than ever. I am confident that Mari's newest journaling book will help me recover my authentic self yet again.
Mari writes with passion from personal experience about the many benefits of a regular journaling practice: reduce physical pain and overcome illness, heal emotional wounds from past traumas, conquer limiting beliefs and fears, and more. She also backs her claims with a summary of research from 300+ scientific studies.
Beyond convincing readers of journaling power through anecdotes and research, she provides practical tips and plenty of prompts so readers can engage in the practice and experience its power firsthand. She draws on ideas from other prominent writers and journalers, like Julia Cameron, author of The Artist’s Way, but puts her own stamp on morning pages to make them accessible for everyone, not just artists, as well as offers prompts she created to target positive life goals like emotional wellness, health, and prosperity.
Journaling Power is a necessary resource for writers, artists, students, and any person looking for an alternative way to find life fulfillment, joy, and wellness. I’m going to keep this book beside my journal for guidance and inspiration.
