Meet Mari - The Journaling Guru

mccarthy_4_copyHi, I’m Mari L. McCarthy, Founder and Chief Inspiration Officer of CreateWriteNow.

I thank Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for introducing me to Journaling Power, also known as Writing Therapy or 'Journaling for the Health of It'. 

About 20 years ago, I lost the feeling and function of the right side of my body and I had to learn to write with my left hand.  I began using a journaling technique called Morning Pages which started my personal transformation.

As I wrote, my MS symptoms improved, but more importantly I uncovered, discovered and recovered my true Self and tapped into talents I never knew I had.

Thanks to my daily writing practice, I’ve now created a perfect life at my Boston beachfront home, where I can enjoy my great loves: writing, singing, reading, walking my beach, meditation, photography, organic dark chocolate, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and raising roses and consciousness!

The right side of my body is now 75 percent functional and I no longer take any prescription drugs (haven't for 13 years) or over-the-counter medications (haven't taken these for 8 years). I haven't carried health insurance in over 13 years. I've not been sick in over 8 years thanks to my journaling which guided and supported me in making major dietary changes: no gluten, no dairy and no processed foods. I write with both hands now, and thanks to my daily pen-to-paper journaling, I routinely sleep through the night for seven or eight hours. My energy increases each day. My Journal and I are work, work, working on accomplishing my 2017 Goal: Heal My Self.

And..through journaling, I rediscovered my passion for music, and my dream of becoming a singer. In 2015 I released my third album ‘Lady With a Song’,   I'm currently working on my 4th album: Well-Written Songs
