In the early hours of August 16, 2011, exactly 11 years ago, I received the first of many hundreds of channeled messages that was to become The manuscript of Survival. That morning, I literally closed down my own business, emailing all my clients, telling them I could not work for them any more. I took a leap of faith into the unknown, because I just knew that this was my path to take from that moment on.
Aisha North was born on that same day. My birth name is Bente Amundsen, but as Aisha North, I embraced so much more of my own Self, the parts not restricted to the physical vehicle. At first, these two versions of me existed separately, but later, I merged them, also in public. That is why I always sign my messages with both names. But now, I have come to realize that my journey has brought me to a place where it is all ONE. The parts of me that needed to be acknowledged with the name Aisha North no longer feel separate. So from today, I will only use my given name, Bente Amundsen.
I have also come to realize that the leap of faith I took, together with my twin sister Lisbeth, in moving from Oslo, the place we both lived until two and a half years ago, to Stavika on the wild and rugged west coast of Norway, has been essential for fulfilling my life purpose. It is truly a labour of love that we do here, together with our soul sister Eva Julia and all our animals. More and more, we see how much our interaction and co-creation with Mother Earth and the powerful energies residing here impacts so many in a deeply transformational way. We see ourselves as custodians of this land, and we feel deep in our hearts that we have been called here. What started out as a dream of creating a home and a business together, has literally expanded into revealing itself as the very heart of our life purpose. Because now we see that everything we create here, is not just for us. It is for everyone who feel called to open themselves fully to the magic that is life itself.
Our gardens, the meditation spaces in our barn and in our lavvo tent, and all the sacred spaces that have revealed themselves on our land – they are all meant to be shared with others. It is for everyone who feel called to embrace their own greatness, whether they come here in person, connect online or simply through the heart.
Nature speaks loudly here, as do the energies. From the smallest of creatures to the intensity of the weather. And everything here wants to have its voice heard. The land itself, the animals, the plants and all of the unseen that reside here. Some of this, I have already shared in the photos I take to accompany the messages I share. But I also know that there is so much more that wants to be seen and heard. And now, the time has come to create a space where this will be possible.
Because here in Stavika, everything is interwoven. Words and actions, insights and creations, they all emerge from the same Source and carry the same message: see your own greatness, and share it with the world.
So from now on, all of the messages I receive will be shared in the new space where we will share everything else that comes to life here on our smallholding in Stavika: landofgrace.no Because it IS all connected. I will leave this space open, so you can revisit all of the messages and comments that have been shared here throughout all of these years. But I invite you to join me at landofgrace.no and click on the “Subscribe” button there. That way, you will still receive all the new messages that come through. Either through me, or through any of the other souls living here. You will also learn more about our life and our co-creations here in Stavika, as we continue our work to nourish the land and ourselves, inspiring others to do the same, creating a community of like minded souls along the way.
The monthly Gatherings will also continue. The first Sunday every month, I invite you to join us for a Gathering in Grace, at 19:00 our time. You are warmly welcome to join us in spirit for a heart-connected meditation, like the ones we have shared so many times through the years here at the Pond.
Thank you to every single one of you who have followed me through the years. Thank you for all of your love and support, you have helped me see my purpose clearly. And thank you for helping me fill this space with so much love, so much life and so much light. I am looking forward to welcoming you to landofgrace.no. I hope you will feel as home there as we do. For this is what I know deep down in my heart – I am finally HOME.
With love, light and gratitude from me, Bente Amundsen ❤ ❤
