I remember when I was little. My legs used to ache for no apparent reason. My mother would tell me they were "growing pains." "They're just growing pains." She would say. Her words wouldn't take the pain away but somehow they brought me comfort. As if the pain was supposed to be there but would soon go away. It was part of the process. A sign that things were going according to plan even. Yesterday, I decided to do a meditative journey. My question to spirit was why I seem to be going through so many challenges lately. I was guided to use 'the yew tree path' from 'Celtic spirit meditations' by Mara Freeman. It guides you to meet with an ancestor. As I walked along the path, I heard a familiar voice say, "growing pains." My mother appeared beside me from the other side. "They're just growing pains." She said and she smiled knowingly.
