Briar hit the nail on the head. The same things happened to me. One day it just all clicked. I have finally been able to get off the depression meds after 20+ years of taking them. My digestive troubles that no doctor was able to explain have gone away. The humming in my ears and optical migraines now are accepted because I now know the reason they are happening. I am 50 also. Wish I would have "awakened" to my gifts years ago and saved a lot of mental and physical anguish. Welcome to the EC Beth.
