Reopening the doors

Dear friends!

It has been almost five years since I shared anything here. Five years that has brought so many changes. Both in my life, but also in our world. As I write this, we are going through a deep, global transition unlike anything we have ever witnessed before. Nothing and no-one is untouched by this. Seemingly overnight life as we knew it has been replaced by chaos and confusion, fear and loss for a huge number of people. So much of what was considered an important part of our daily lives has been stripped away. Our vulnerability has become so apparent. Both on a personal and a collective level.

What will emerge out of this? What choices will we make, both in the short term and after this crisis has passed? No one knows. But I for one feel a deep sense of optimism. I see this as an opportunity for us as a global community to reassess everything. Already, Mother Earth is breathing more freely because we humans have had to cease so many of our less beneficial activities. Perhaps this will help us all to realize what life CAN be if we allow ourselves to connect to what is important. Namely our own inner Self, and through that, reestablish a much needed connection to everyone and everything around us.

If we want this world to be a better place, we must start at home. In a very literal way. And now, we have been given the opportunity to do just that – on a massive scale. But we have also been given the opportunity to experience what it is like to live life as isolated beings, with little or no physical contact with others. One way to mitigate this, is to reach out to each other like this. To create spaces where we can come together online, to share, care and uplift each other when so much of what we are exposed to elsewhere, tries to do the opposite.

Because of this, I have been guided to reopen this blog, for comments. As many of you know, this is where I for many years shared all of my channeled messages. It is also the space where The Pond was born, a community of beautiful souls who shared their insights and their love for each other in so many ways. It has been kept open as a library for all, both the messages and the comments, but it has been closed for any new sharings since April 2015. But now, I am opening the doors again for you to come and share, and you can do so under this posting.

I do not know how much I will be able to contribute directly here in the time ahead, but I wanted to share this message that I received for the Equinox:

The interconnectedness of All Beings
is becoming apparent as the old structures come crashing down.
Behold the beauty of your surroundings!
Mother Earth herself is breathing freer
while the doomsayers struggle for air.
Remember that the seeming chaos
is simply the birthplace of the New.
As you enter the Pause that is Equinox,
take some time to reflect on this.
For it is up to us to shine the light of freedom
on all those still blinded to their own light.


I do hope you will find the time to add your light here. Together, we can remind ourselves and this world that as ONE, we will come out of this in a way that will be beneficial for ALL. Including Mother Earth herself. Thank you for being right here, right now!

With deep love and gratitude from me, Bente/Aisha

  1. Hi Aisha.
    Yes. The Chaos Force is pcking up some speed now. The problem is, It has not even got started yet. Someone recommended too me, the 12 books, wriiten by Carlos Castaneda, I will list them in order below. If I real wanted too understand where Chaos come from I was told, read the books in order they were written. The book’s are written in a gentle & humorous way & leads the reader on the journey Chaos Castaneda took. One dose not have too buy the books, they are free on audiobooks. Just type in ”Carlos Castaneda free audiobooks” & the site should come up on youtube.

    Carlos Castaneda
    The Teaching of Don Juan (1968)
    A Separate Reality (1971)
    Journey to Ixtlan (1972)
    Tales of Power (1974)
    The Second Ring of Power (1977)
    The Eagles Gift (1981)
    The Fire From Within (1984)
    The Power of Silence (1987)
    The Art of Dreaming (1993)
    Magical Passes (1998)
    The Wheel of Time (1998)
    The Active Side of Infinity (1999)
    ”free audio books carlos castaneda books”

    It’s my duty too pass this information on too anyone that is turly interested too know where chaos comes from.
    As always, be well in your self everyone- Vincent

  2. Quite Amazing to have you back Aisha! I, myself, have been gone for over two years, doing deep inner work and highly engaged in an intentional community. However, I was prompted to return to blogging in April and have been visiting my prior haunts on WP and investigating new ones. Blessings to you always and especially in this sacred turning point, Alia

  3. Wow. Hello again, Aisha. I never thought I’m going to hear from you again. I remember how deeply saddened I was when you said you are not going to share any more channelings with us, as you were told. Very happy that this has changed. Also very interesting that after I dunno how long, I also decided to check in on my good old email account that I haven’t used in many years. Coincidence? No. Anyway, again, very-very happy to hear from you. All the love to you and everyone else! Barbara

  4. I Thank you for coming back into our lives. Source has a crazy sense of time. When all is falling apart, we see ourselves coming together, smile. Your water colors are still inspirational. May our prayers touch the entire universe on April 5th.

  5. Greetings Aisha,
    So wonderful to hear from you.
    You popped into my mind on March 23rd. It was a wonderful reminder of time spent at the pond. And there you are the next day in my inbox!! Reminding me of the Oneness.
    I’m delighted the pond has reopened as a place for us to collectively gather, share, support and receive. I have no expectations, am content to sit in the energy and awareness that has been reactivated. Thank you for this gift.
    My love and gratitude to all,

  6. Great read 💜✨

    Message from White Eagle, Hopi indigenous on 03/16/2020:


    “This moment humanity is going through can now be seen as a portal and as a hole.

    The decision to fall into the hole or go through the portal is up to you.

    If you repent of the problem and consume the news 24 hours a day, with little energy, nervous all the time, with pessimism, you will fall into the hole. But if you take this opportunity to look at yourself, rethink life and death, take care of yourself and others, you will cross the portal.

    Take care of your homes, take care of your body. Connect with your spiritual House.

    When you are taking care of yourselves, you are taking care of everything else. Do not lose the spiritual dimension of this crisis, have the eagle aspect, that from above, and see the whole; see more broadly.

    There is a social demand in this crisis, but there is also a spiritual demand. The two go hand in hand. Without the social dimension, we fall into fanaticism. But without the spiritual dimension, we fall into pessimism and lack of meaning.

    You were prepared to go through this crisis. Take your toolbox and use all the tools available to you.

    Learn about resistance of the indigenous and African peoples: we have always been and continue to be exterminated. But we still haven’t stopped singing, dancing, lighting a fire and having fun. Don’t feel guilty about being happy during this difficult time.

    You do not help at all being sad and without energy. You help if good things emanate from the Universe now. It is through joy that one resists. Also, when the storm passes, each of you will be very important in the reconstruction of this new world.

    You need to be well and strong. And, for that, there is no other way than to maintain a beautiful, happy and bright vibration. This has nothing to do with alienation.

    This is a resistance strategy. In shamanism, there is a rite of passage called the quest for vision. You spend a few days alone in the forest, without water, without food, without protection. When you cross this portal, you get a new vision of the world, because you have faced your fears, your difficulties …

    This is what is asked of you:

    Allow yourself to take advantage of this time to perform your vision seeking rituals. What world do you want to build for you? For now, this is what you can do: serenity in the storm. Calm down, pray every day. Establish a routine to meet the sacred every day.

    Good things emanate; what you emanate now is the most important thing. And sing, dance, resist through art, joy, faith and love. ”
    Resist – Be reborn

  7. Amazing Bente and all Ponders many names I recognise. This does feel like an auspicious time and out of the ashes of the old the new will arise – in the world in general I mean. Certainly insights have been emerging to confirm this.

    Funnily enough, and perhaps not in the least bit surprising, I did a Live video the other day on Facebook entitled: Calm in the storm; what life is communicating. Happy to share here if there’s interest but for now I send many blessings in Infinite Silence to all.


  8. Nous ne nous sommes jamais quittés, nous avons continué notre voyage…
    Une grosse émotion et des larmes de joie à la réouverture de cet espace.
    Merci de tout mon coeur

  9. The Manuscript of Survival was alwayes relevant on so many levels. On one level I feel like I never left, because the element of the Pond is kinda timeless. It is a truth once set free or remembered in a lifetime that is inescapabel.

    The conscious co-creation, the generation of synchronisity, can not be unlearned only unleashed.

    On the other hand You cannot awaken somebody who is pretending to be asleep, or as I am understanding the CC: “…blinded to their own light”.

    If this place once again can become a powerhouse of love and compassion so be it!

    Love & Light


  10. It is soo wonderful to see you back here dear Aisha! You guided me soo many times ..always with the most perfect messages … I look forward to once again for all you share , Love and blessings to you ❤️🙏

  11. Hello Aisha!!! Hello Everyone!!
    Soooooo happy to see you all again.
    Until next time, love to All!! Caroline

  12. How we have been missing you Bente/Aisha for what seems like an eternity. – Never has the term “Prison Planet” seemed more appropriate than now, and never has the insight from you and your Constant Companions been more needed and appreciated. – Much love from a fellow Norwegian; also living on the wild and rugged west coast.

  13. Great to hear from you!

    Now that is interesting…last week I was reminiscing the time i was reading this blog and the messages you were receiving were confirming the ones i was receiving (though never shared widely, nor publicly)…so i am not certain which date, but it could have been near the equinox that i came to this blog to see if anything had been posted that i missed since i last heard from you!

    so wildly apropos synchronistic confirmation we’re still in tune as you post this message!

    and to share, i am WILDLY optimistic…of course its a transformative process but the veils are thinning once again!

    look forward to “hearing” more! 🙂

    1. I was talking with a new (old) Pleiadian friend about The Pond just yesterday & discovered today 😁👍😎💖
      I hope he joins in! We are magnificent together & so much to share!

  14. Gratitude+++, Aisha. I guess this reopening could be called one of the Silver Lining Blessings of the tremendous change (for the good eventually) we’re each experiencing. Remain well, everyone. Comedian Milton Beryl: “Laughter is an instant vacation.” xo Lin 🙂

  15. Hi everybody!!
    I’m speechless but I’m sure that won’t last! 😁😍
    My saying these days: 💜 Keep A High Vibe 💚 Keep The Earth Healthy
    My Deepest Love To You Aisha & All! 😘

  16. I’m so very heartened and inspired by the many messages here and elsewhere that so very clearly show the magnificent transcendence inherent in the human being. We are coming to see the countless examples of kindness all over the globe. We are hearing the pleasure of children being able to spend more time with their parents. And this morning I heard in a channelling from Kryon (in Iceland) the words: “This is what you came for”. And, like the writer above pashstclair, I also feel much elation, of course mixed with the fear that is caused when any kind of rug is pulled out from underneath. I feel suddenly useful, as if every bit of inner work was done for this, to be present and shine through these cloudy days.

    This and other groups are doing immense work in uniting hearts and minds and healing the fractures of our world. I believe that the rainbow is going to be a fitting symbol of this phase. We will emerge into a new light, like after the rain. And the rainbow will be the colours of love and kindness. And all will be well.

    Sending love to Aisha, who guided my steps in times gone by, and to all who are shining their precious light in these times.


  17. Hello my beautiful sisters and brothers! Thank you so much for your loving words! How wonderful it is to tap into the collective field of vibrant energy that we are all a part of. I know that our presence on this planet at this moment in time is no coincidence. Nor is the path we have all traveled to come to where we are now. We have been preparing for this; to simply BE the love, the light and the grace as so much around us crumble and fall. Only last weekend, my sister and I received the last of our possessions, finalizing our move from Oslo to a house on the wild and rugged west coast of Norway. Here we live and work together with another soul sister, co-creating our life in a very new and free way. Our original plan was to sell our Oslo apartment and move here around Easter. But in November, the call came so clear and strong that we needed to speed up our plans immediately. So we sold the apartment and moved up here in mid January. Together, the three of us have a yoga studio in the nearby town Molde. That too, we were guided to cancel the lease on three months ago. Two weeks ago, our studio had to close the doors like so many other businesses in order to comply with the new health regulations. Suddenly, everything ground to a halt. But it feels absolutely perfect! The need to DO is fading away, and the calling to simply BE is emerging more and more. So too the calling from Mother Earth and all of Her creatures. It feels as if a connecting to Her and sending that energy out into the collective field will be an important part of the global transformation process. When our yoga studio closed, we immediately started working towards creating online classes to share with our students. But as the days have gone by, we are starting to understand that what we are to share, is something else. Something that goes deeper than merely “another yoga class”. This is one of the videos we have shared. It is me, standing on the beach where we live, and the title is “finding your calm in the middle of the storm”. For this is what we are all asked to do now; go within, find your centre. Then, we can outride any storm that may come our way. LOVE! Bente/Aisha

  18. How nice to hear from you again! I agree – there are – while the old world is crumbling down – also a strong rebirth going on here. The splitting of the old and the new world. Much to learn, much to be aware and conscious of behind the disaster.

  19. Dearest Aisha, what a delightful surprise to find your email this morning! Welcome back.

  20. Hooray! hi Aisha – I am in Oklahoma enjoying our adventure. So so good to see your note this morning. A beautiful gift returns — The Pond! We can all gather on the banks again. so very Cool!

  21. Thank you, dear Aisha, nice to hear from you again. Is there a way to SUBSCRIBE, i‘m not and got your post from a friend. Love and blessings, Aluna

  22. What a wonderful surprise! My heart is jumping with fond memories. I never felt so much love in a digital space as I did here. Aisha, you created something quite unique and I am blessed to be here.
    I am oscillating between panic and elation right now, part of me feels like I have been waiting all my life for this. The air is lovely here in Greater London, the wildlife is rejoicing.
    We said this family prayer this morning:-
    Thank you dear virus for bringing your harsh lesson to us. You are teaching us to value of Be-ing over do-ing. We accept with presence that all our do-ing must be for the highest good and therefor we don’t need the sickness so please Passover us. Amen
    May all the beings in all the worlds be happy.

    1. Hi greater London. We used Avatars to feel free to express ourselves. These past years have opened me up to loving so much more.Stay safe.

      1. Hello again after many years, I’m so glad to hear that you moving ever light wards, so many are going into fear right now. It gives me great encouragement because the fear can almost overwhelm me sometimes. Be well.

  23. What an unexpected delight to welcome you Aisha, as we awaken to a new day, new season – Spring – and the beginnings of a grand collective planetary awakening! With much love. 💖 Isn’t this exciting?!

  24. Hello Aisha!!!!
    What wonderful news to know that you have reopened this blog!!!.
    I never stopped following you in watter speaks, admiring your wonderful watercolors.
    We are in this together. I have also read between the lines of this happening and my feelings are good.
    A big hug.

  25. The old is crumbling. The new, the loving, will rise like the Phoenix, embracing us all.

    Stand like a reed in a river with your roots safely planted in the new. Swaying with the meandering stream, flowing into the new.



    I AM

    1. Twenty years ago, my husband and I decided to make some major alterations in our house. Walls came down and the roof was removed but we continued to live here throughout the process. It was uncomfortable and difficult. Much of what we usually did in our house was not possible during the demolition of the old and building of the new. But the new space, the revamped way we could live in our house made all the difficulty seem worth experiencing.
      I think the outcome of this current experience will be even more worth the process. This is a thorough-going change. A true revolution! Not only will we have better tools for addressing what have been persistent problems but some of those problems will just disappear. Our new world will be a venue for exploration and experience without the struggle for survival, like being on perpetual holiday.

  26. Hello dear ones! What a wonderful surprise and gift to hear from you!! Thank you SO much! Much love and gratitude always 🙂

  27. oh my gosh it is so wonderful to hear from you Aisha! I have thought of you often as your words and channelings were among the most beautiful I have ever seen, very magical. You were a huge part of my waking up experience. I was in fact just thinking of you the other day and now I get this email, so synchronistic! Thank you so much for returning The Pond, although these days I suppose things are not returned to so much as they are beginning anew. Are you going to post channelings as well? Much gratitude to you, all here, and all of this earth as we move forward quickly in this Shift. ❤️

    1. Hello Amy! Thank you for your loving words and beautiful energy ❤ I am not sure just what I will be sharing here, I will simply go with the flow and see what emerges. At the moment, it feels as if simply the act of opening up this space again as a reminder for us all of our connectedness is so important.

      1. Amy it’s so good to find you here… I was just sitting under a tree yesterday staring into the sky and seeing all the moving particles in between it and me and remembering some of the chats you shared about that. (I forget what word you applied.) A few months ago I came across the post card of the Toucan I’d brought back for you from Costa Rica but never sent. It’s nice to regroup all our energies together again.
