Taking the Time to Heal

Christina Souza Ma

It’s been quite a journey these past three months. I still cannot believe what we were able to accomplish in such a short time.

First we had the Virtual World Yoga Conference in February. Then last Thursday we held the Encore Event, which was only for a day.

Accomplishing so much with our team is truly wonderful and I do feel blessed that we have touched so many people, and continue to do so. But the one thing that I have neglected to do is take the time to heal from my Laryngitis. I was feeling so much better weeks after the initial conference, but I now know that I did not give myself time to fully heal.

Then earlier this month there was the huge Eco Show event, where I had to have many conversations and meetings that taxed me to another level. I just kept going and going until – PLOP! My health took several steps back and I felt totally drained. It seemed sudden but it actually wasn’t. It was a slow dripping tap before all faucets came on full force.

It’s definitely no fun to feel like this, coughing so deeply and repetitively. I realize now that it really is time for me to rest, soothe my soul, and nurture my body back to balance.

It’s no longer about making sure I do that each day, for the first time in a long time I have no choice – my body is making the choice for me. I would be a fool not to listen this time. It’s time for some wonderful Himalayan Salt Bathes. I have been using my Neti pot daily and taking all my vitamins and nutrients, so I do believe it’s just rest that my body, mind and soul are craving.

This is not easy for me – but here I go on my road to recovery and balance.
