--- Interview by Nicole Pyles

WOW: First of all, let me just say congratulations on your book Heal Your Self with Journaling Power! What inspired you to write this book?

Mari: Thank you. I’m very proud of it and excited to get other journalers stories out into the world. As for inspiration, well, it was all part of my plan to have a Journaling Power trilogy. My first book was Journaling Power: How to Create The Happy, Healthy Life You Want To Live, a self-help memoir (a new book genre), which introduces journaling power to the world. This second book shares journaling journeys of just 10 of the thousands of people who use journaling daily to solve their emotional, physical, mental and spiritual problems. My third book will be more spiritual and closer to the format of Journaling Power and focus on transforming self-sabotage into everlasting self-love.

WOW: I love that this will become a trilogy! For those who were a fan of your first book, Journaling Power, what can they expect from your latest book Heal Your Self with Journaling Power?  

Mari: It’s about the Journaling Journeys of ten journalers (and an update about my Journaling Journey now in its 21st year) with chapters on Nurturing Your Inner Wisdom, Managing Your Mind and Expressing Your Emotions and much, much more. They’re talented, creative people who use journaling to meet and master life’s challenges and readers will learn that journaling is the all-purpose self-healing tool. And…four of the stories are from guys. Yay!

WOW: The power of journaling is so profound! I was amazed to read your own story about how journaling put you back on the path to better health. I don't think people realize how journaling can transform you physically as well as emotionally and mentally. What would you say to them if they are in doubt about the impact of journaling? 

Mari: Read my book! :) Journaling helps us reclaim our power that we’ve given away to the medical establishment. We are our own primary healthcare providers and we need to find health care resources that will partner with us to improve our health. I would encourage them to grab a pen and notebook, put a question like “How do I get off of all these drugs?” or “How do I get rid of these extra pounds I’ve been carrying around?” or “Why don’t my doctors listen to me?” or… and then write, write, write. They’ll be blown away to discover how disconnected they are from their body because they’ve been living in their head since forever. Journaling reconnects all the parts of us and makes us whole again.

WOW: Those are such powerful questions to start with - I love that! You teach and inspire people everywhere to transform their lives! What is it like to see people's lives changed because of the impact of journaling? 

Mari: It’s the best part of my life to be celebrating people’s AHAs with them and to read and/or hear them realize they do have the power to discover, uncover and recover their authentic self and that they already have all the talents they need to pursue their passions and change the world.

WOW: How inspiring that is! What do you hope readers take away after reading your book? 

Mari: That they accept that they are a universe of infinite possibilities and by using the ultimate self-empowerment tool, Journaling, they can heal the issues in their tissues that they’ve been carrying around since childhood, learn to live in the present from the inside out, and create the happy, healthy life they want to live.

WOW: I love that - "heal the issues in their tissues." What is next for you? What are you working on now? 

Mari: I’ve just come out with a new CreateWriteNow.com self-healing journaling power workbook (I think that makes it our 22nd or so workbook). It’s called Empower Your Self which is our June featured workbook of the month.

I’m also planning out the third book in the Journaling Power trilogy, Create Unconditional Self-Love: A Journaling Power Book, which I’ll release March 15, 2022. I have a draft of the front cover and I’m currently working on the back cover. My book writing process is to create the front and back cover design and content, and then plan out the structure/flow, and then all that’s left to do is write, write, write.

WOW: I love your approach with writing and I can't wait to see what you publish next! Congratulations again on your book and good luck on the tour!

Nicole--Thanks for doing this interview.

Mari--Congratulations. The "heal the issues in their tissues" statement is powerful. Being able to become more healthy through journal-writing is an important message to share.

Beginning with the front and back cover, and AFTER that writing the book is a fascinating approach.

Good luck with this book and your future writing endeavors.

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in October 2012, at the age of 44. I woke up one morning with numbness in my lower back and legs, I couldn't feel my feet touching the floor. I saw my doctor and had an MRI to see if I had a disc problem, it was negative and she told me she feared MS. I was sent to a neurologist, had two more MRIs, and was told that night that I have four lesions on my spine MS. I tried every shots available but nothing worked. In 2015, my neurologist and I decided to go with natural treatment and was introduced to Organic Herbal Clinic natural organic MS Herbal formula, i had a total decline of symptoms with this treatment, the numbness, terrible back pains, stiffness, body weakness, double vision, depression and others has subsided. Visit Organic Herbal Clinic official website www. organicherbalclinic. com This treatment is a breakthrough for all suffering from Multiple sclerosis, i am strong again!

Great interview, ladies!

Mari ~ Wow, 21 years journaling is amazing. I don't think I told you this, but my husband had a recent cancer diagnosis and he just had surgery and is going to start chemo in July. Nurses have been encouraging him to not only eat healthy and do light physical activities like walking, but also visualize his body healing, emphasizing the importance of a positive mental outlook. I was a little surprised (and happy) to learn that this is becoming more common among progressive medical professionals. They are finally recognizing the power of the mind. Now, if I could only get him to journal... ;)

I just cracked your book and I'm going to be doing a review soon, but wanted to say how much I'm loving it already. :) I'm also excited about your tour! It looks phenomenal.

I also can't wait for your third book! You're always so organized and plan ahead. That's a really interesting strategy to create the front and back cover design and content first, but it makes sense. When I did NaNoWriMo, they want you to upload a book cover design before you write the book, and it helped me visualize the project as a physical book. So I agree, it works!

Good luck on your tour, Mari! :)

I've been journaling little by little.. I know that it would be better for my mental health if I did more.. I've been trying to read more books to help me improve my quality of life and always possible, as well. Blogs like yours give me hope
