I had surgery last week. I’ll tell you a lot more about that later, but for now I have to share a channeling that just came through this morning.

I’ve been very curious, and a little nervous, about how general anesthesia would affect my ability to do channeling work. On top of that, I used narcotic painkillers for several days after surgery, which is a far cry from the caffeine-free, alcohol-free, aspirin-or-any-kind-of-drug-free life I usually live. I try to avoid stimulants and depressants when I can because I never want to wonder if something I’ve channeled was influenced by them.

My plan was to wait four or five days to make sure the drugs were out of my system physically, then for my energy to adjust to having them gone. Then I would try channeling. Instead, two days after ceasing those drugs, I woke up to a channeled message coming through me like a voice in my mind that definitely wasn’t my own.  I got out of bed, wrote it down, then formally accessed the Records to make sure it was real.  It was real, and here it is:

“You are the ones you’ve been waiting for. We talked about this several months ago, and too few of you are acting on it. You can no longer afford to live with the emotional and behavioral patterns that hold you back – that tell you there is something wrong with you or that you have to prove something.

Don’t you understand? If you are reading this, you are one of the enlightened ones. It is time to start acting like it.

Today, map out a plan for the next day, week, month, or year. Think of something you want to accomplish, big or small, and map out what it will take to get there. Then take note of the few things on that map that you can control or influence, and make a plan to do those things.

Finally, and most importantly, take note of the many things on that map that you cannot control or influence much. List those, and decide right now to surrender. Know in your heart what you hope for, and then surrender those to your higher self and the angels watching over this plan.

It is time to stop trying to prove your worth, or to attain something different from the divine path you are walking now. You are here to help lead humanity to a new age, and your leadership will not occur because you have achieved something in particular. It will occur because you develop a deep sense of peace as you go about your plans, and that peace becomes something everyone wants to follow.

You do not need to work so hard. Humanity cannot afford to have you indulge any further in self-hatred or criticism. You are the ones you have been waiting for, and the people around you are waiting to learn from you how to surrender the fight and step into peace and joy right now!”

This is one of the first times I have ever received a channeled message without formally accessing the Akashic Records, and honestly I didn't really like it. For one part, it felt a little bit like getting a lecture from the Keepers right when I wanted to be snuggling and sleeping!

But the dislike goes deeper. For years I have resisted any channeling that comes without my conscious consent. I’ll admit it – just like the channeling tells us, I prefer to feel as if I am in control of how Spirit moves through me. So I suppose this is my opportunity to surrender to what is rather than to strive to create what I think it should be.

I remain curious about how my recent surgical adventure will continue to affect my channeling. Did the spontaneous morning message come because I had just removed the narcotics from my system? Were those kinds of messages there all along and I was just too tired to block them out this time? Who knows, but you can bet I’ll keep you updated on what I find out!

    This blog was sent to me by one of my newsletter readers because I also had emergency surgery 2 weeks ago. It was appendicitis, my first surgery and my appendix contained a stage 2 cancerous tumor (and it was huge). The surgeon told me that my appendicitis was a blessing or this tumor would never have been detected.I wonder how many other channelers, lightworkers or spiritual teachers have had surgery in the past few weeks. I hope you're doing better and I'm struggling with the after effects of the anesthesia as well as the narcotics I took for only 2 days (because I didn't like how they made me feel) after the surgery.

    Interesting — two people who had readings scheduled with me this month cancelled due to emergency surgeries of their own. Perhaps there is a pattern occurring for Lightworkers, as you suggest. I can't wait to dive into the Records and ask about this, but it will have to wait as I continue to recuperate. Watch for a channeling on this in the next few weeks!

    I think there is a lot of unrest and healing going on right now – a lot of things coming to the surface that either need to be removed, or healed by other means. I know a lot of people who seem to be having health problems that are being raised. It seems to be the negative or unrest-type areas that need to be removed or healed by the body to further them on their path. Surrender from within to better continue the work…looking forward to reading more. Thanks and happy healing!

    It's a brilliant message, as sharp and pointed as the winter stars. I'd be interested in the exact day you received it. I keep the 13 Moon Dreamspell Calendar and it all fits as we enter today (Dec. 13) the Rhythmic Moon of Equality which has the function of organizing. This is the cycle that takes us into the year 2012. It seems as if the Elders want us to shape up and get our focus clear. Thrilling.

    Jen Eramith and Jennifer Hoffman connected! I'm sure like many others I've followed you both for a while and have benefited greatly from what you do. I've noted often that the Uriel messages coincide very well with the Akashic messages. Jen A., I had no idea you were having health issues! In fact, this is the first time I've visited your blog (!) and I'm sorry to read you have been struggling and wish you well. At the same time, I'm thrilled to find this new message from the Records and seeing the exchange between you and Hoffman is even more profound. There is something really special happening right now and you both sharing your experiences is really helping the rest of us push through the uncertainty. Thank you.

    All the best to you both and everyone else. Audra

    Yes, it appears lots of healing work (planned or not) was definitely prevelant last week. I had multiple healings and I am so thankful for receiving them and clearing the way for what's next. 🙂

    I'm SO glad I found this entry, Jen. On a very deep level, I've just received some very important affirmations from your "spontaneous channeling" – thank you for that. And thank you for continuing to give so much of yourself to us, I am eternally grateful.

    "Too tired to block them out this time" ~ interesting concept about the ego or psyche or whatever it is in our make-up that doesn't want new information and out of fear wants to control it or how it comes in. Trippy human stuff 🙂

    I just happened upon your blog today and was shocked to hear about your surgery. Thank you for sharing so openheartedly. The channeling was exactly what I needed to hear too, as I am coming off bronchitis and my old demons of self-doubt and unworthiness. Sometimes when we are at our weakest is when we unwittingly surrender and then the healing starts. I send you Love and Light, and wishes for a speedy recovery.

    I've really admired the purity of your messages over the years. I think that not letting just any old astral being who wants to give you a message get into your energy field is very wise. I urge you to please think again about letting random astral beings give you messages you didn't ask for. Your own human life and human thoughts are so important and valuable.

    You mention at multiple points that you didn't like this experience. I urge you to value that, instead of thinking that it is some part of you that is bad and "won't surrender to spirit." Why should you surrender to whatever random ghost comes your way?? You are not a puppet, you are a human being!!

    Plus, so many astral beings are probably less evolved and less wise than you are right in this moment as a human.

    You might enjoy this article:

    The teacher who wrote this article, Rose Rosetree, also wrote a book called "Spiritual Cleansing and Protection" which you might be interested in. It includes, among other techniques, very simple and easy techniques (5 minutes) for healing astral and extra-terrestial entities in your environment and stuck to your aura.

    Hopefully my perspective doesn't offend you!

    Have a great day, Jen.

    Hello, I am new to your blog; and until today I had not heard about Akashic Records. How I found you is a topic for a different day.

    However, the message yoou channeled in recovery felt as if you were speaking directly at me…

    I am interested in learning more, and will certainly be in contact soonn. In the meantime I pray you are recovered well from your surgery.
